The Real Virgo Characteristics

hospital corners are a Virgo personality traitHow To Make A Bed

Beyond Virgo Vision and their everyday chic, here are the real Virgo personality traits. Adopt them as your lifestyle tips for better living and to impress any random Virgos you know.

(1) Always make your bed properly, first thing in the morning. This sets the tone for the entire day and it will be a pleasure to retire to at the end of your long day of productive slog and efficiency.  Fitted sheets are for slackers and do not look nice when folded. Learn to do hospital corners.

(2) Scrub fingernails with nailbrush each time you visit the lavatory. Why waste money on manicures when cleanliness and an occasional file is all that is required?

(3) Everything bad you have heard about not flossing is for real. Dental hygiene costs less in time and money than dental intervention down the track.

(4) Thoroughly clean your face before you go to bed and your complexion will reward you.

(5) Work out how much cash you require that week, get it out in one go and stay within those limits. You feel cashed up, you save on fees.

(6) Dirt and clutter make you feel poor & grimy.  Make cleaning part of your wind-down routine.

hmmm BOTH Aries-Ex et moi can whip either dwelling into shape pronto, perfect sheet tucks, sans dust ‘n all!! funny – he actually shot that BAM TVC, our life supply only drying up recently (ran out of gas masks – is toxic!!). we both earn a living advising what’s “in” ….extending more to what’s value / good / classic than trendy stuff. if there’s ONE sign that wants the NOW style but WONT fork out for it – its Virgo, with twin Gems hot on their heels……special note – heaps of signs simply DONT CARE what looks / is good… Read more »

He he he. All the closet fitted folders unite. You folk have made me very happy today, I am not alone!

I have a strong suspicion GR that there is a strong link of taurus honoring of our own stuff going on with the folding of sheets…makes me wonder if postmodscorp has any taurus lurking about in her chart.

Chiron in Taurus in the 1st – Individuating my way…., and Taurus in the 2nd – which explains practical li’ ol’ me!
Good spot LL.
I am not sure what the whole Chiron thing amounts too – every time I try to read up on it I get confused…. no doubt it will become clear eventually!

Guuurgh. Made bed. MADE BED. I have to make my bed every day. Feel chaotic and out of control of bed is not made. My best present ever was when I had to rush to work one Saturday morning, to get some stuff done before sister and best friend came to stay for the weekend. No time to make bed so flew out of it and into the car. Came home to find sister and bestie had already arrived and settled in with a cuppa AFTER THEY MADE MY BED. What a blessing to have people in your life who… Read more »

Folded fitted?!? With no exposed elastic or hideous billowing? I love a good fold. Can you share?

Though far from being a domestic goddess myself, there is a particular way socks are folded in my family. My mother had to learn it when she married my dad. Makes putting socks on a pleasure as well.

No Earth in my chart, let alone Virgo. Maybe the sock thing (feet) is related to my Pisces streak?

Sometimes because I’m perverse I’ve looked at the Martha Stewart website…It has a step by step visual instruction on how to do this.

Thanks for the link. Just went and did it. Very impressed. It’s like fabric origami.

LL – between your thoughts on packet cake mix and your visits to Martha’s website, I fear we may have been separated at birth!!! While I don’t frequent Martha’s site, I have been to it once or twice and watching Better Homes & Gardens is a secret Friday night fetish!

Leonine Librarian

I’d say my Taurus rising is more powerful an influence than I imagined …

I also don’t frequent La Stewart’s site frequently either, but if I have a household organisational yen…she’s pretty good in a slightly scary way.

When I remember it’s on I like to watch Grand Designs on ABC1. There is something about watching people’s mad desire to build highly personal abodes that really appeals to me.

I am an obsessive folder of fitted sheets….. When I house sit for some friends they know now that when they come home the linen cupboard with be absolutely immaculate…… And my house mates know not to tamper with my shelf in the linen cupboard! All hades breaks loose!
My cancerian Colombian host mother taught me how to fold the fitted sheet… she like moi must have a glut of planets in Virgo…..

Well I am a Virgo slattern. Currently sharing house with mouse and its extended family (must put out bait one day but he’s so cute), gladiator size cockroaches roam freely clicking their tiny nails, and there’d be furballs freewheeling down the hallway if the dog was still alive. I make my bed when I change the sheets and I swear gracelessly the whole time I’m doing it at the tediousness of it all and other than that this fussy bedmaking involves dragging the doonas back so they cover the body. But you should see my complexion – night cleansing pays… Read more »

Too true virgo nightfairy! I think a lot of people forget the good ol’ goody but true description in Linda Goodman’s book. I loved that she said most aren’t the stereotype “neat freak on the outside” & whatever else the crappy astro will tell you. Upon observation then you’ll find their way of doing things, whether a painter, etc. I thought it was incredible of her to actually point that out. My theory is that a lot of Virgos who really are like a walking stereotype, they’ve bought far too much into the whole cliche… (& not to mention having… Read more »

OMG! I didn’t send that message twice and all of a sudden there is a link to my gravatar that goes to a teeth whitening site????? How did that happen? Does anyone know how i can remove it?

weird!! i didn’t even write that last line “Oops…forgot to say great post! Looking forward to your next one” it’s like spam on blogs!! Logging out and signing back in seemed to work just in case it happens to anyone else.

Saturn in Virgo natally- i LOVE changing my sheets, washing the doona cover, vacuuming. wiping surfaces is my fave. seriously. and as said above it is totally the mind-body thing. not about a clean house per se, but that things are ordered and un cluttered and fresh feeling.

it sounds anal and crazy, i know, but i do it with intent and its always cathartic and makes me feell like im sorting out different parts of my life.

I’ve been raised by no good neatniks.lol um my Aries mum and Virgo dad.. David is right, an Aries is madly good at getting it done right in the minimum amount of time. We learnt early to respond fast, and well to voice commands. Mum’s rationale was get it done fast and then we could do something fun though…so it didn’t feel as horrible as Dad’s earnest routines.

I do find that I like the feel of fresh white bed linens. Even rumpled unmade white linens look fresh to me…

Isn’t it? 😆 I should’ve used fitted sheets when I was going out with this Gemini guy, as all we did was pretty much have sex during the two years we were together.

robots, are you serious? i thought a scorpio could score even as the target man/woman was walking up the aisle ..? if all else fails target a piscean, they’re easy 😉 hahahahahaa
(just joking all the fishies out there. i think. we know the fx scorps can have )

scorpalicious robot

yes, i KNOW i can score and HAVE had pretty much everyone i’ve ever wanted and there have been many but i’m trying the celibacy/my body is a temple/sex is sacred thing for now. I want it to be special.

Leonine Librarian

I’m in a similar mind set at the moment SR. I don’t want some token bloke in my life, just so I feel ‘in’ with the couple crowd. Plus quite frankly I wanted some time alone to work on my own life without the distraction. (Because a bloody good temple besmircher can be distracting.) The last few years have been hard work and I feel like I’m getting closer to wanting to attract someone interesting into my life. I’m more aware of myself and what I would like my life to be, so I feel on firmer ground to create… Read more »

perhaps they see fitted sheets the way others see packet cake mix.. i see the aries vs virgo cleanup style as thus: the arian strategises only as long as it takes to see where the most troublesome mess is lurking, waiting to interrupt the arian force field. (or maybe its scorps who have the force field?) anyway, Aries develops commando tactics to vanquish the mess, if only so they can swoop the kids up in the other arm on the way out the door to Little Athletics 15 minutes earlier while (with the other arm) the Arian tosses the last… Read more »

UP, I think you’re spot on with Easy Off BAM, even the name is apt, not to mention how toxic-smelling it smells & what it is most likely comprised of! I don’t get the list… I was going, huh, #4 is the most regularly done (used to slack off a lot with it, not now I’m getting older…sigh…), with #5 & #6 on equal second. With #6 coz with two dogs if I don’t vacuum, hello!!! It’s quite masochistic otherwise for someone with a sensitive sinus system with all dog fur flying around. And there used to be 5 lil… Read more »

UPV that is the best reason I could ever think for buying fitted sheets.

Thanks for the analogy Unpredictable Pisces. I am one of those people who shudders at the thought of packet cake mix….so now I kind of understand the fitted sheet thing!

Sorry one more thing, that sweet spot on the bed is also one of my fave spots, but it has nothing to do with how the sheet folds under. Haven’t virgos heard about fitted sheets ?

Now lets talk about the time it takes for a virgo to get the house spick and span. I and I know other aries are the masters of the super quick, super efficient clean up. We leave virgos for dead.

Depends what level of clean we’re talking.. But I’m fairly certain I could whoop you in the super quick because its crazy efficient clean up stakes.

7) In a totally passive aggressive way, do your very best to cause arguments with and irritate your girlfriend, in order to make her scream at you and become very upset, whilst you remain completely calm. Then make her feel terrible about it, by pointing out how you were simply trying to “help” her. Doesn’t she want your help? Because you care?

Sadly it came up in conversation this week that I once earned a Brownie badge for bedmaking hospital style.

would you believe a nurse taught me to tie knots in the top corners of flat, bottom sheets, then tuck under the mattress. They stay flat and smooth even with the most exciting of horizontal tangos. Mitred corners at the bottom 🙂
