Certainly one of the interesting things about Virgos is their real need to be practical and think out detail after detail in every situation.
This sign of the Zodiac is intellectual. Because Virgos are a mental sign, they are good at reading, writing and arithmetic. They make outstanding managers and love to inspire others to work as they do.
They enjoy organizing life down to the smallest detail and can become totally involved in this chore, sometimes to the exclusion of everything else.
The drama of life with Virgos can be their constant need for perfection and their attention to detail.
This trait of organizing everyone and everything should be recognized before getting involved with this earth sign, since a Virgo is not one to change quickly.
Once you understand that the Virgo is merely trying to help you when trying to run your life, the relationship will be much easier to live with and grow through.

Aries (March 21 to April 20) Your theme in life is usually act first and then think about it. Well this might be a good week to do the opposite otherwise you will have any number of problems to solve. Everyone knows how you love chaos, but don’t care about dealing with it. So heed the warning: slow down in romance.
Taurus (April 21 to May 20) Once you understand that your anger comes from the need to control your surroundings and the people in it, you will be happier. So this is the week to understand. Follow your dream and relax. A new person in your life could liven it up. So let him in and enjoy the journey.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Your outlook on life should sparkle now and, if it doesn’t, you need to make a few changes. Let go of your old ideas of what makes life tick and bring in some new ideas. With Jupiter in your sign for months to come you have plenty of opportunity for change. The first change could involve your pals.
Cancer (June 21 to July 20) If life is not starting to look and feel better for you, then you need to make even more serious changes. The sooner you can let go of your old life, the better off you will be. No more playing the game. Put your foot down and take some action. Your life needs to be revised because a new love is coming.
Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) Your love life may need some minor changes and, if you make them now, you can avoid major changes in the future. You don’t want to force issues now; you want events to come about smoothly. That takes some organization. So get started and you will come out the big winner.
Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) Giving deadlines this week may not work and you might want to reconsider. Remember making demands sometimes forces a pal to get on his high horse and you end up in a jam. Try staying calm and understanding the problem others face. In that way your life will turn around.
Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) Saturn leaves Libra in just a month on Oct. 8 after two-and- a-half years. Life will start to relax and look and feel better. A good friend could turn into a dream come true. So be patient and wait for the best of times to come. This should be the week to rid yourself of the unnecessary.
Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) As the new moon approaches it might be wise to let more pals on your bandwagon and share the good times. Let go of anything that no longer works for you and pay close attention to what you would like to see happen in your life. Mars is now in Scorpio and it is time for action.
Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) Try to avoid overspending and you will feel better about life in a month. But if you continue to overextend yourself, you will have to pay the price within weeks. So try to slow down and spend slowly. That way you will avoid the same problems you have dealt with before.
Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) You are in the midst of making some serious decisions and if you are smart – and you are – you will hold off until the new moon on Sept. 15. If you can wait, the entire proposal will be much bigger and make lots more money for you and a partner.
Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) You just have no idea how many people depend on you and your moods. You need to take your responsibilities a little more seriously. Once you do that there will be no stopping you and your latest venture into the business world. If you want to win the latest game you are playing then slow down.
Pisces (Feb. 21 to March 20) It is time to raise your consciousness and think more of the spiritual side of life. Once you make that move and hook into Neptune, which is now in Pisces, you will live an entirely different and fuller life. A new friend could become an important part of your life. Such fun.
