Astrologers have been rather harsh on Virgos, putting them down, and writing them up as being very fussy and narrow minded. Truth is when a Virgo is given the chance to shine, there is no matching their inner light, and strength. When they have confidence within themselves, they are very successful, and creative beings.
Oftentimes found working in service areas when it comes to a career path, ranging from doctors, school teachers, massage therapy, counseling, or welfare work. No matter how often love turns sour on them, they manage to find the good in people, and forgive rather easily. Refusing to become cynical. Virgos can be taken advantage of because of their kind heartedness, which is very unfortunate. They can easily become victims of relationship power games, and can be mistreated emotionally.
Ultra sensitive, Virgos are delicate people who require special treatment to fully blossom into their own true unique beauty. Shy, and happy to allow other to take center stage, and they will spend their time and energy to try to make everyone around them happy, or successful, a true giver. When your chips are down and you need a friend a Virgo will be there for you. They are so deep, and realize just how tough life can be due to their gift to be able to reflect so easily.
