Both sexes have considerable charm and dignity, which make some male Virgoans appear
effeminate when they are not. In marriage they can be genuinely affectionate, making good spouses
and parents, but their love making is a perfection of technique rather than the expression of desire,
and they must be careful not to mate with a partner whose sex drive requires a passion they cannot
They are intellectually enquiring, methodical and logical, studious and teachable. They combine
mental ingenuity with the ability to produce a clear analysis of the most complicated problems. They
have an excellent eye for detail but they may be so meticulous that they neglect larger issues. Also,
although they are realists, they may slow down projects by being too exact. They are practical with
their hands, good technicians and have genuine inventive talents, Thoroughness, hard work and
conscientiousness are their hallmarks, and they are such perfectionists that, if things go wrong, they
are easily discouraged. Because of their ability to see every angle of a many-sided question, they are
unhappy with abstract theorizing. Appreciating the many different points of view as they do, they find
philosophical concepts difficult, and they vacillate and have no confidence in any conclusions at
which they arrive.
Virgo is said to govern the hands, abdomen, intestines, spleen and central nervous system. Illnesses
to which its natives are prone include catarrh, cold, coughs, pleurisies, pneumonia and nervous
instabilities. Their natures make them inclined to worry and this makes them vulnerable to stomach
and bowel troubles, including colic and ulcers. Male Virgoans may have trouble with their sexual
organs. Both sexes are strongly interested in drugs and esoteric cuisine and as their delicate
stomachs require them to be careful about their diet, it is essential that they treat their fascination with
exotic food with extreme care.
