|The sixth sign of the zodiac is concerned with:|
|* self-perfection, critical faculties|
|* altruism, honesty, responsibility|
|* cleanliness, hygiene, health, healing|
|* efficiency, daily routines, reliability|
|* strength of character, veiled sensuality|
|* service, hard work, passivity, modesty|
|* incisive communication, shrewd logical thought|
Virgo is the mutable earth sign of the zodiac, indicating adaptable practicality. It can be likened to a semi-shaded patio which has been adapted to make a garden filled with a great variety of plants, climbers, and an arbor. Half-hidden, here and there, are garden chaise lounges with rich patchwork covers, bottles of homemade organic wines, and other unexpected practical delights.
The Virgoan Female
If a woman behaves in a way that is distinctive of the personality associated with the zodiac sign of Virgo, she will have a tendency toward the characteristics listed below, providing there are no influences in her personal birthchart that are stronger than that of her Virgo sun sign.
|The typical Virgo woman:|
|* has a pointed chin and a face in repose|
|* the eyes are often soft and very beautiful|
|* the hair may be long or short but is normally impeccably groomed|
|* the mouth and lips are well formed|
|* is typically clean and very neatly dressed|
|* can analyze situations in detail|
|* is devoted to her work, usually serving others in some way|
|* is basically shy|
|* has incredible strength of purpose|
|* will pursue happiness wherever it leads|
|* is pure of mind but not naive|
|* thinks of herself as more orderly and efficient than other people|
|* has a delightful, straightforward personality|
|* does not express her feelings easily|
|* can be soothing one moment and critical the next|
If a child behaves in a way that is distinctive of the personality associated with Virgo, he or she will have a tendency toward the characteristics listed below.
|The typical Virgo child:|
|* is quick, alert, and an excellent mimic, and so can learn many things in a short time|
|* gets upset if he or she forgets something that has been learned by heart|
|* rarely questions authority but frequently questions facts|
|* is honest and reliable|
|* is usually shy among strangers|
|* loves to do jobs around the home imitating an adult|
|* is sometimes a fussy eater|
|* is usually tidy, with occasional bouts of disorganization|
|* gets very upset if teased|
|* is often an early talker and reader|
Young Virgos will try very hard to please, as long as they know what is expected.
As they grow up they will often find close relationships with the opposite sex very difficult.
Virgos take a lot of convincing that they are attractive people. Lots of genuine praise and encouragement early in life will help to smooth the path to true love in teenage and early adulthood.
Parents should never interfere when their young Virgo begins to notice the opposite sex. Even the slightest hint of criticism or teasing may cause Virgos to withdraw and choose the single life.
Young Virgo's Needs
Young Virgo must have physical affection, in the form of hugs, and sincere compliments every day in order to build the self-confidence that every typical Virgo child lacks.
Virgos are nervous worriers, and a friend who in some way feeds the worries will reduce Virgo to a nervous heap.
Virgos can be cold and critical, so a friend who softens the barbed remarks with caring laughter will bring out the Virgo wit.
Most Virgos find it almost impossible to admit they are occasionally wrong.
The website goes more in-depth and I agree with the majority of traits on there. I display the good and the bad of the sign, however with the Libra rising I'm also a peace-keeper/moderator...which has been/is prominent in my life. So, in a rather large nut-shell, yes...I believe it fits me.

Last weekend Trainer went out of town for training and I started the taxes. Ugh, I loathe taxes. We always owe. We own a house, but the interest is just not enough of a deduction and since we don't have two footed children we lose out there as well. Last night I settled in to finish and see if I could whittle away some of the payment. The ultimate goal is to owe $0 and receive nothing back. The goal was not met, but in some ways it is a privilege to pay taxes. Call me weird, that's fine, but it does support a lot of good programs (a lot of bad ones too, I'm not a complete bleeding heart) and I've known people who have used those programs. But it is never fun to see your savings account shrink in an instant.
This week I'm ready (I say this every week don't I?) to get started on my program. Really, I'm tired of being out of shape. I'll refrain from saying 'fat' but seriously all of my muscle has turned to mush. Blah. I have to get in more than 1-2 workouts a week and start on my strength training again. I hate starting over, but if I don't stop then next year maybe I won't be in this position? Maybe? And maybe this pollen will clear out of the air so I can breathe just a bit easier.
Nothing much to report otherwise. The Brodster is a cutie and he starts training this week. We'll see how that goes. Sprinter is doing a 30 blog challenge and I may steal it, give me some writing inspiration. :) Until then peeps...have a great day!

So we know that the shit storm happened from November through February. There was a point in which I decided to go get help. I'm not sure if it was when I broke down in front of the CFO (my old boss) when I was SO angry that the flood of tears just broke through...or if it was every time that Trainer and I went to grab a drink and I would end up crying. While out at a BAR. Seriously it was getting ridiculous. I am a happy person I think. Sarcastic, yes...but overall I think I have a good outlook on life, especially the older I get. I love my years of aging, they make me feel wise instead of just old. I am secure with myself and my relationships...so really I was getting tired of all of this crying and not being able to say Gunthar's name or the phrase 'Yes, my dog died' without the tears. The hardest part was actually going to the Dr., and when they ask why you are there, replying 'I'm sad.' That was it. THAT made me cry too. He put me on a magic little pill...vitamin Z as my other friend affectionately call it. I take a 1/2 a pill a day and I don't know if it is the placebo effect or the fact that I went and got help...but I felt better in just a couple of days!
Just now...like in the past 2 weeks...I started seeing my friends again and exercising. This is an improvement. I'm motivated to get moving again. Yay! I met with my coach and have a plan. Of course my allergies aren't cooperating, they put me down for a week, but the drive is there even if the lungs are not. I'm staying at my current job for now. They gave me the tiniest of raises (but hey, it's something) and more options. But really it came down to economics. I have 1 1/2 yrs left to pay off the debt, hopefully less if I can swing it. I don't need the extra gas expense or benefits or an hour commute...and..and...and...you get the idea. I took the emotions out of it and here I am.
Brody, the new little guy, is a monster, but a cute monster. He's going to be huge. Right now he's in the puppy biting stage, but housebroken. Sydney is doing great with him, I mean he's a pain in the ass, but she is tolerating okay for now.
Alrighty...well, enough for today. Tomorrow's post, or perhaps Monday, will be about the loss of friendship. I have a great story. Peace out my little peeps!
