I am becoming more Virgo, and as any Virgo would attest, that’s a terrifying thing.
I have been seeing someone for a few months, and only glanced at his astro (honest!). He doesn’t believe in astrology so getting the birth time, (which in his on-the-cusp-case matters a lot), is nigh impossible.
BUT, one thing is for sure. His moon is in Virgo, and is hanging around my sun. As his Saturn.
So I get it’s like looking into a mirror and seeing your own faults/skills/talents blah blah, and he works his Virgo moon just fine, he’s not the problem, it’s me. This is having a very odd effect of making me hyper Virgo. Virgo on steroids. Virgo after a vitamin B injection.
I now have not only lists, but lists of lists. I can’t sleep thinking of what needs to be done on those lists. My house/office space/appearance/existence is being scrubbed and polished to the nth degree. Everything is now declared ‘clutter’, even the cat (I obviously won’t hurt the cat, but my god is he messy).
Is this normal in couples astro? He seems totally fine, in fact impressed, with my Virgo mania, the more the better. I on the other hand, think there should be a rehab program specifically designed for one person’s astro ramping up the other’s.
Please tell me this is normal, and will plateau eventually?!
The Accelerated Virgo
Dear Accelerated Virgo,
Well yes, it’s totally normal for a person you’re bonding with to enhance or aggravate various bits of your natal chart. If his (say) Pluto is on your Mercury, being with them is like having a constant Pluto-Mercury transit.
But as for your super-hyped Accelerated Virgo Syndrome, what’s the problem here? Sure i speak as a Mars in Virgo woman who finds shredding therapeutic, decluttering cathartic and list-making hyper-Zen. But still, you’re going to be efficient, right?
Also, it is better to have a partner turned on by you being organized as opposed to you being drunk or hysterical, is it not? You know, there are plenty of lovers out there who prefer you anaesthezised or disempowered.
My tips for learning to live with your Virgo Acceleration Syndrome:
* Don’t so much declutter the cat as have the cat up to date with worming, vitamins and vet visits. If the cat goes out at night, join one of the new study groups where they put a camera on their collar. You can analyze your cats nocturnal movements via catcam. Feline tracking is the new frontier of e-stalkery.
* You can NOT let your lists of lists of lists fetish interfere with your precious power-sleep. Get a grip on this by reminding yourself that quality sleep makes you MORE not less productive. Innovate the list process so that you feel you can let-it-go, trusting that the data and tasks are still there. An interactive whiteboard? Fancy quantified self app?
