Virgo is one mysterious fig, especially when it comes to the fine art of Gambling. Though Scorpio is typically the Sun Sign most associated with Secrecy, Virgo is the true fanatic of the Zodiac when it comes to the sensitive topic of Personal Privacy.
From an early age, Virgo feels they must protect themselves. And so they do. Capitalizing on their unique-yet-contradictory combination of restlessness (Mutable) and common sense (Earth), Virgo rarely retires, tending more than any other Sun Sign to remain (gainfully) employed in spite of age, disability, or any other health-related ‘handicap.’
Known to be rather unassuming characters, Virgo’s calm, cool outer demeanor often belies the Ball of Nerves that lies underneath. Virgo is an expert when it comes to emotional controlling self-control, and are rarely reactive types, making them almost impossible to read until they feel comfortable enough to spill the beans.
Quiet, polite, and well put-together, Virgo’s shy humbleness and keen listening ability immediately endear them to those they meet. Like Aquarius, Virgo enjoys being underestimated by others, taking it as some kind of challenge, fueling their innate inferiority complex to overcompensate and, in turn, to win.
For Virgo, 2021 is a year of recalibration, with Saturn in Aquarius pushing you to focus on your daily routines, day jobs and come up with new ways to go about your To-Do Lists. Jupiter is in Aquarius until May 13, so for you, Virgo, the first half of 2021 may feel like a whirlwind, with too much to do in what feels like very little time.
Eclipses are known as the Wild Cards in Astrology, ushering in new cycles in our lives, forcing us to address whatever areas of our lives we may have neglected of late. The Lunar Eclipse in Gemini on May 26, for instance, yanks you out of the day-to-day and reminds you of your need for more excitement in your life.
For Virgo in particular, the Eclipses of 2021 are a big Wake-Up Call, inspiring you to incorporate less Work and more Fun and Games into your daily life. And although my personal favorite, or what I consider the ‘luckiest’ Eclipse of 2021, occurs on December 4, the Lunar Eclipse in Taurus on November 19 is a big one for Virgo – and is sure to make all the Earth Signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) want to roll the dice.
Not only is Virgo born with a near-impenetrable Poker Face, but their natural adaptability makes them the Zodiac’s Chameleon, able to blend in wherever they go, easily fooling anyone who dares to underestimate them.
One of Virgo’s greatest strengths is that their powers of observation allow them to pick up on every detail, count every card, and calculate every other player’s weaknesses simultaneously and in the blink of an eye – all the while keeping their signature Straight Face intact.
Virgo’s perceptive abilities are more than a considerable advantage, regardless of what Table they choose to sit at, quickly picking up on what works (and what doesn’t), all while concealing what it is they really think about their opponent(s).
Yet Virgo has a particularly sensitive ‘breaking point,’ prone as they are to over-compartmentalize their emotional needs, often sacrificing or playing auxiliary, ‘sidekick’-type roles for most of their life.
The Sign of Virgo is associated with Purity and Perfection, and obsession with the latter is what makes Virgo uniquely vulnerable to so-called Mid-Life Crises, cashing in all their hard-won chips on what seems to others to be a lark.
In the recent movie Uncut Gems, Virgo Adam Sandler stars in probably one of the best performances of his career, as a Jeweler who ‘loses it all’ while on a manic quest to recover his most precious gem.
One of the reasons Sandler plays this role so brilliantly is simply this: it’s very stereotypically Virgo to lose themselves in their myopic focus on the details. Though Virgo is highly intelligent, it’s only when they get lost in the weeds that they trip themselves up, failing to see the Forest for the Trees.
Consequently, games involving complex strategies and a myopic focus on winning can get the best of Virgo, who does best at games like Blackjack, where there’s just enough strategy involved to give them the feeling of control they crave. Virgo does best when working in service to others and giving practical advice and solving practical problems.
And whether counting cards or working as a CPA, numbers, and spreadsheets are Virgo’s forte. Yet Virgo, too, needs to break free from time to time, making games like Roulette and Craps all the more appealing to indulge in – at least occasionally.
Lance Armstrong, arguably one of the most infamous Virgos in history, raced competitively in Cycling since his high school days, only to ‘throw it all away’ by getting caught up in a tangled web of dirty dealings and not-so-little secrets.
On the other hand, Virgo Warren Buffet exemplifies just what a changeling Virgo can be, as they tend to loosen up considerably in the latter half of life, post-MLC when they’ve learned that being overly critical of themselves and their associates doesn’t serve them as well as they previously thought it might, attracting more opportunities than they could’ve imagined once they realize that perfection is indeed unattainable.
Because no matter how many practical problems and puzzles Virgo is able to solve (and believe me, it’s a lot), at the end of the day it’s better for everyone when Virgo learns to let go of their compulsive desire to feel in control, embracing an attitude that’s a little less uptight and much more, well, light.
