How Deep Is Your Virgo?

Filed in VIRGO

woman with head in washing machine at laundromat

Forget figuring out how Plutonic you are. We are ALL Plutonian at the moment. Thank YOU Full Moon in Scorpio building, Chiron sextile Pluto et al.

I’m more interested in conjuring up a Virgo Test. What sort of multiple choice questions would there be?

Mismatched Socks

(a) Annoy you.

(b) W.T.F.? Who gives a fuq?

(c) Don’t happen in your household because of the system?

(d) Will be hunted down and destroyed

(e) Affect you psychologically, so sad and deranged.

Something along those lines?

But really, how Virgoan are you? I am interested in – obviously – the vagaries of Venus in Virgo (my Leo Ex – Venus-Pluto-Uranus in Virgo – would fly into incendiary rage at crap service or incorrect cutlery) and Mercury in Virgo (loses sleep over punctuation errors) but look also to the House or Sector of your chart where Virgo holds court…Is that an area of life where you tend to Virgo out???

Right now, anything Virgo (especially the end degrees) is supersonic as Uranus zaps it with weirding rays – real easy to go over the top with uncluttering and drastic change. But kind of satisfying too…

So: How Deep Is Your Virgo?

Hello KonF I am Leo, Aries Asc with Moon in Sagg, I didn’t know much when I made up my name here BUT on Tues. I have my first astro reading, so I will let you know if I have a Grand Trine, I don’t really know yet! I will post something on it after then! Ditto re the appearance as I liked to appear immaculate (it’s an insecurity thing) at work. Perfection procrastination c’est moi!! But am no hoarder, I LOVE to chuck things out. My hubby does too, we have an industrial sized bin in our kitchen! And… Read more »

Hmm your moniker mean anything as I have a Grand Trine in Fire..seems we have much in common (except perhaps my laissez faire heartless attitude to the lone socks!) I found Messies anonymous helpful – really had issues with clutter and hoarding but pretty uptight about cleaning, and own appearance, no one would guess my guilty secret until they came over and those people love me anyway…. much better now sigh peaceful house, time to do things! Also recently let go of the “I’m not going to / can’t start xyz because it isn’t going to be perfect” thing and… Read more »

Mars in Virgo (5th) and Pluto in the sixth (Lib). Y’know I am not pernickety. I don’t care if things aren’t perfect. Of course I would LOVE everything artfully tousled and ultra clean, but I don’t care enough about order to put it before, say, relationships or life. (But I do care about a tidy kitchen as I have met some rats, mice and cockroaches late at night in kitchens and thats just filthy). Like Kataka on Fire I only just discovered order late in my life and I now really adore having systems. My doc reckons I am slightly… Read more »

C!

Our household socks are always sorted after laundry and folded in pairs before they are put in the drawer. Any singles are placed in another drawer until after the next laundry day. Any remaining singletons are banished to the shoe polishing kit.

My Virgo rules my 6th house and Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto are all in Virgo. In my daily work, I have become increasingly organized over the years. I have been staying on the Virgoan Path of Improvement in this area of my life for much of my adult life.

Virgoness? I found that is an evolving process… Having Sun, Mercury and Pluto in Virgo, with Capp rising, it was not a surprise to find out that pressing recently washed/dried clothes could be a relaxing activity for late nights! After the pressing session, one must pay attention to vital details, commonly overlooked by many less deep Virgos: • The hangers have to be of a single type (no, all those different, sagged dry clean wire hangers are NOT OK), • Clothes should be organized by colors. • Oh, and yes, 1 hanger = 1 piece of clothing; no, layers of… Read more »

oh, snap on the hanger regime, and snap on the deep Virgo-ness (Sun, Merc, Pluto and Uranus in Virgo plus Cap asc – are we twins?!)

I only wish I had gaps in my closet – my clothing archive has long outgrown the available hanging space.

I don’t understand! I’m sun and venus in virgo, and I don’t care about odd socks! As long as they feel the same – ie I wouldn’t wear a thick sock with a trainer sock. But colour wise – no probs. I’ll generally wear the pair if they’re together, but not really bothered if they’re odd.

Would having scorpio rising, or venus trine uranus, or leo moon make me more chilled out in typical virgo stakes?

A psyche would be having a fit with this bunch of virgos all in one place and running for the nearest bar or hospital in fear. As a very non virgoan you are doing my head in. I went out with a virgo rising for 3 weeks and that was enuf i was judged the whole way. It was awful
I think you guys need a whole cartegory just for yourselves some place to hang out in where you can all speak the same language.

a) d) e) at first mis-matched socks annoy me, so I pop them all in a basket ear-marked as ‘mis-matched socks’ and hope that one day the washing machine or my kids bedrooms will one day spit the missing partner out. After about two years they are then all thrown in the bin. Playschool would be mortified at how many potential puppets I’ve led to the final solution. I don’t mind mess and I don’t mind dirt but I DO mind BOTH mess and dirty in the same area – one has to go – usually both – at least… Read more »

I think my bedroom would make a virgo cry. Lots of books and papers all over the place, it’s horrifically disorganised AND I’m always late.

I definitely have some virgoan hygiene standards though. I don’t take baths, unless I’ve had a shower first, because then I’m just sitting in the dirt I’m trying to wash off! I also had to go on a mad cleaning spree of my boyfriend’s student digs, because it was literally unbearable. I don’t understand why the concept of throwing out mouldy food seems to escape people as soon as they enter university???

I feel like a fraud Virgo right now…. Well, in astro.com this section told me to “Virgo up”, to let the Pisces moon hold less of a sway over me. Eeeehhh… I let a lot of things go these days; they’re just not worth my powers of attention to details/discrimination/whatchamacallit. I channel those at work, or having great sex. Have even discovered that the sky didn’t fall down when I started vacuuming less, or obsessing less over the kitchen sink’s gleaming-ness, or less of any of the other things.

I actually used to go out of my way to ensure I was wearing mismatched socks. Now I only care if they match if they somehow form part of the outfit. I have a housecleaning frenzy every couple of months, otherwise I happily live in an organised mess. I can spot a grammatical error a mile away and it stands out like it’s written in neon. However, I don’t correct people (unless I’m proofreading, of course) – I kind of enjoy creative variation in language? pisces with gem rising, aq moon. Not a virgo bone in my body!

Wait, I just re-checked my chart… third house in Virgo.

I certainly am thingy about communication – if my boyfriend is rubbish at writing to me he stands NO CHANCE. If they write me eloquent love notes/letters, I am pretty much theirs for the taking.

My Ceres is in Virgo, too… now that I think about it, I do remember an ex complaining I mother-nagged him…

OMG my Virgo rising really shows up when it comes to the laundry.
There is only one way to hang it – mine – and don’t mess with it. Do not walk away from the clothes line leaving a sheet or towel hanging crookedly and expect to ever be welcome in my home again 🙂

What is it with all the lost socks, I’ve never lost a sock in the 30 years I’ve been doing my own laundry?

Ok this interests me as currently my Gem Asc is under scrutiny as I have a plethora of Virgos in my life (we always get along famously, even if it’s purely for the sake of trying to thrash each other at Scrabble) AND my serial killer work space and desk arrangement. So I think I might actually have Virgo Asc. I’m only thinking this as Virgo is nowhere else in natal chart, although plethora of 6th house bizo. But not sure. Does the following qualify me as having Virgoan tendancies?: – cannot function surrounded by mess – cannot cook in… Read more »

ps:

– water marks on sink not ok. Must wipe down with teatowel until gleaming
– same for pots
– dirty tiling a horrific experience
– sensitive nose – garbage must be put out and perfume used judiciously
– food is not to be dumped on plate but arranged artfully to please palate
– dumb people should sent off to a far away island where I don’t have to listen to them
– blackheads require instant extermination
– smoking inside is NOT ON even though I smoke

ps ps:

– dirty teeth are not acceptable. Medibank offers cheap extras cover with two free teeth cleans a year. No excuse.
– chinese food smelling BO is blatantly a public nuisance
– people farting in my vicinity are not acceptable either. Ok one needs to fart from time to time – but have you heard of a place called the BATHROOM with a vacuum force fan air sucking up thing???? Like really whenever I have to smell someone’s fart I automatically think “oh great! Whatever was up X’s butt is now floating up my nose.” Beautiful. *rolls eyes*

ps ps ps: I am never late … except for when I used to work full time and then I was always late for work – but I put that down to some latent passive aggressive stance against corporate working hours a la my Aqua Mars & MC. Otherwise I am always early or bang on time.

Oh and I can guestimate the time without a watch to about 2 minutes of the actual clock time.

NOW TELL ME IS THIS VIRGO ASC OR WOT?

Pluto is in Virgo making aspects to Neptune, Jupe, Merc (Sextile), Moon and Venus (Square) and Saturn (Trine) …. plus 3 planets in 6th house. I reckon it’s the Saturn and Merc that’s doing the job.

hmmm. If you were truly Virgo asc you would have already called the hospital you were born at and insisted on them telling you the exact moment of your birth, yes?

but, yeah, you do sound a bit, um, un geminian 🙂

I did. When I was 21. Had to go through the Greek Consulate and use an interpreter and everything. At first they couldn’t even find me coz I was registered under my christening name which was something ridiculous like Maria Maria Maria Angelica or whatever. Obviously my numerous godmothers and the priest thought I needed as much help from the saints as possible. Cut a long story short … no record of birth time.

Kataka has a lot to answer for here prowln! I share some of your *tendencies* but suspect some are Kataka (of which I have more than a stellium conj). Also re your Asc – where is your Merc and what are the major aspects to it???

Ermm … yes the kitchen fastidiousness could have something to do with Crab Sun and Venus in 1st house.

Otherwise Mercury:

Mercury Leo 1°13’03 in house 3

Mercury Sextile Saturn 0°53
Mercury Trine Neptune 0°34
Mercury Sextile Pluto 4°00

Just remembered i had your birth deets from way back in my uumm, little book of secrets. Well imho you are definitely Gem riser – Asc makes 2 beautiful aspects – trine Jupiter conj Neptune in the 6th house – your daily contacts and work environment etc.. Plus it sextiles Pluto in the 5th which is also conj Lillith (bitch moon). Your airy trine from Asc to 6th house also trines Aqua NN in the 9th house. This to me definitely resonates with your intellect and wit. It also sextiles Chiron in the 11th house and this trines your Saggo… Read more »

Oh and you lack the earth element in your chart so perhaps all the Virgo friends are a compensation. Perhaps you attract the earth peeps but your air can only love the virgos due to their mercurial nature???

Don’t know if this is Virgo assc or wot, but I tell you I am letting my sis’ know she is passive aggressive in her lateness because this strikes as so true.

Can’t speak for your sis but for me it’s sooo true. Like client meetings and social events do tend to make me nervous prior to the event, but I’m never late. But if I passionately detest something (working fulltime for someone else) … I’m always late despite good intentions. Actually I just resent the implication that I will be somewhere within 5-10 minutes of the clock hour. I find the concept heinous. And yet without that pressure … I’m there, bang on time, or early. Weird

A dirty sock can send me into an itching and cleaning binge. I notice that when I’m really busy is the only real time when I clean up a lot. I’m a relatively neat person in general… I think so anyway there are other people who don’t think so… but DIRT is what gets me. When I see it under nails. When I see it caked on mirrors or clothes or anything that I’m looking at I judge. I judge harshly. It’s a complex.

I have been informally diagnosed as chemophobic http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chemophobia and it is TOTALLY TRUE I have an irrational (although somewhat founded, I feel) prejudice against chemical cleaning products, food additives and cosmetics.

I have a theory that Virgo risings are even less relaxed than Virgo suns. We just have to manifest perfection, which is easy, but Virgo risings expect the rest of the world to do so as well.

Lex, I think that might be the Cap actually – is still earth sign and from what I see (also my moon in cap), caps are all about high standards, authenticity and Right Ingredients (for whatever – business model, panna cotta, cotton/linen jacket)… thus chemical crap is seen as superfluous to needs, since the real thing is out there and will last longer, keep us healthier, look better… perhaps?

Lexicorn

you might be onto something there. perhaps its a combo of the two that makes for such an intense, committed rejection of all things manufactured and bio-corrosive.

Hah – I too get sick when the office is cleaned, its so bad I have gone home with ferocious hay fever, knocked out by antihistamines.

Personally, things get cleaner with bi-carb and vinegar, smell fresher cos the gunk is GONE, not just smeared into new locations, and hidden under perfume.

My nucking futz housemate washes her clothes in organic detergent – then uses Cuddly softener…. WTF? She also doesn’t rinse the dishes after washing – so detergent remains on the dishes when ‘clean’. Revolting.

Ooooooooh. That’s my big NUMBER ONE virgo pet hate. Yes yes yes. Dishes must be rinsed in clear hot water after washing to remove all the detergent!!!!! Oh, the skin crawls when I see them stacked up in the dish rack covered in suds, waiting to infect my next meal in toxic petro-chemicals.

Um, maddeningly deep Virgo-ness?!(and also quite Plutonian as it turns out after the DC test results; though as Mystic points out, we’re all feeling Pluto at the moment) – Perhaps best to ask my partner what the scale is on the Frustration barometer – especially seeing as I have Virgo sun/pluto/south node conjunct in 7th house – so maybe it all shows up in a partnership/relationship setting??

This reminds me of one of the common type of questions used in math courses in “permutation and combination.” For example, say you have 3 different types of socks in your sock drawer, and they’re all jumbled at random. If you pull out one sock at a time without looking, how many socks do you have to pull before you get a match? The answer is left as an exercise for the reader.

I avoid this sort of problem by always buying the same type of socks. Then they always match.

Lexicorn

I too buy one type of sock only. It seems the logical solution to this age old problem.

Absolutely the correct approach. All black and the same brand. Efficient and then you don’t have to spend time on small stuff like matching socks.

I prefer black clothing too, avoids stains. I have no idea whose idea white jeans are, but it’s mind-boggling – how do you sit down in a park or do anything active?

Only Virgo in my chart is Virgo in 4th house.

Libra sun/moon, Virgo asc
Libra sun/moon, Virgo asc

My Venus in Aquarius makes me quite like mismatched socks, but only when it’s deliberate. Also, whenever possible, I buy patterned or coloured socks to make it easy to match them. White and black tend to be the same brand, though I still get annoyed if one stretches so they don’t quite match anymore. Also, I once read that Virgo rising children have a thing about socks being on the correct foot, which I did (drove my mother crazy). Anyone else experience this? I can’t stand anyone else hanging out the washing. Is this a Virgo rising thing? I have… Read more »

This is true of my Virgo rising Leo son. He is a perfectionist about a lot of things – and takes forever to put socks and shoes on because his lazy mother doesn’t always turn the socks right way out when folding the laundry! My multiple Aquagirl is opposite, she may well wear mismatched socks and not notice at all. I’m also starting to think my Virgo riser may be hyper about his health. He regales me in fine detail about every little bump, scratch, itch, throat tickle etc…. drives me crazy.

Yes Lexi – so right there. He also has to have his massage e v e r y night, so touchy-feely (shoulders/spine/neck) or maybe it just “earths” him. Not sure, just notice the huge difference with Aquagirl. I’m trying the blase approach re the health intensity so his psyche doesn’t have this dotting, rescuing female prescence. Goddess forbid.

Glad to hear I wasn’t the only child like that! I used to hate hate that little bit of extra cotton at the toe seam sitting in the wrong position, even if it meant taking shoes on and off several times.
I’m really glad I got over that!
Oh, and I was pretty focused on health as a child. I was chronically ill, which didn’t help. Grew out of that, too, as I’m sure you’re son will 🙂

My young virgo rising self did have quite a thing for socks being on the correct feet! I still do today, my nylons/tights must also be put on the same way each time. I check them sideways if they have no tag/obvious marking to see where my butt has made the fabric extend slightly.

I adopt a “risk minimisation” approach to my life these days. All socks are black, cotton, short. All sports / gym socks are white, ankle, thick cotton. So if they are mismatched I can live with it, although I do try to match them ..

apart from that, poor grammar and spelling when not used tongue in cheek / in email shorthand etc never fails to upset me. I see it as a sign of sloppy thinking. Obviously not including disadvantaged folks who simply have not had the opportunity to know better

DEEP? My Virgo is bottomless.

Funny you ask this, as my Sun merc venus MC Pluto & Uranus are across the ninth and tenth houses and being Merc retro, I just had to deal with a recalcitrant government bureaucracy to do with a project I’m working on and I proceeded to give them a detailed, bullet pointed directive/rant on how they might do their jobs. Public service hacks. Tsk.

And I’ve never lost a sock.

oh now that is something i also do not so. I treasure my stuff. no breakages. I have to hide fragile / easily soiled items from the Fearless Aqua as she breaks EVERYTHING IN SIGHT..un fuqing believable. Drives me mental

oh yes. me too – as a taurean I am too attached to my stuff to let it get broken. I was joking to my leo artist friend yesterday as I tore the house apart looking for something that I NEED to know where all my stuff is or I go a bit nuts – I feel the same when something breaks. Mystic always says toros are psychic about things, and it feels like a little part of me is torn or broken when something is lost or damaged *sob*

i’m so totally with you TA, even when you know it really doesn’t matter, it sooooooooooo does, quite distressing when something isn’t there or misplaced, though mostly when the mystery is solved, i can disconnect and no longer care at all!

My mothers system for sock management – only one brand, all the same colour (all replaced once a year en masse) – there may only be 11 single white socks in your sock drawer – but they were NEVER mismatched! Have no idea where her Virgo is – but she cleans the shower and squidgies it as she has her morning shower. Brushes teeth and cleans sink and mirror. Quick wipe of the floor and fresh towels put out, and old towels and last nights clothes into the washing machine as she head in to make breakfast. Vacuums living room… Read more »

OMG she sounds like the late Leo midwife who used to run the IVF doc’s practice where i worked parttime during my uni years. She was …. words actually fail me…. memorable?? Think Virgo to the max with Leonic pride and attitude. Above scenario extended to everything – office systems, her diet and the way she ate, her dress style, i could go on. She would have to be the most efficent person i have ever come across but she was very unpopular and quite neurotic. People were surprised i could even work with her let alone stay for 4… Read more »

I have a box I keep next to my laundry basket for single socks to eliminate that problem. I also have sun, asc, jupiter, and venus in virgo. Very, very virgoan.

Venus in Virgo – I hunt down the lost sock.

I do not fly into a rage but crap service or incorrect cutlery are an issue. Not sure but I think the following are Virgo related – bra and panties must match, toe nails are always painted, I am never late and skewed tan lines irritate the hell out of me.

2Natured

I had 4 kids in 4 yrs. My personal Hell was matching socks. Finally I just gave up. I put a small basket in top of the dryer. When socks came out of the dryer they went into the basket. I completely didn’t give a s* about matching socks after that.

Pisces, with Pluto in early Virgo. I feel like I spent way too much time thinking about socks! Pet peeve is dirty, yellow, unclean teeth. I can’t even look at someone with poor dental hygiene. I want to gag!

Pegasus

Mars in Virgo…….I clean therefore i am.
Dislike sox bigtime, unless brand new then it’s downhill
from there-on.
Have found the Virgo’s in my life quite stubborn & inflexible
for my easy breezy self but those have been male in midlife
crisis or whatever it is that makes them grumpy.

first house asc… virgo. i aspire to find lost socks… but then again i am also prone to buying two pairs – just in case. but it’s not about you, it’s about me. you can arrive late and sweaty– i won’t care.. but if –i– get sweaty on the way there.. well, i can make up some excuse. ok, the truth is, i once got off a public bus to stop at a friend’s house to wash the stink of the other passengers off me so i could WALK the rest of the way. my sweat smells better. well, better… Read more »

Precisely (another Virgo word) Andrew. It’s not about YOU, it’s all about me, am a V Rising as well though my attitudes are obviously affected by a raving Venus in Leo. And yes, I do believe my sweat smells better.. hahaha.. I have a “wake up” face that involves running to my toilette so I can emerge “fresh faced dewy” courtesy of Dr. Hauschka and Dermalogica, and yes, I do sometimes shower pre-gym if there is even an inkling my sweat will not be at it’s normally calibered sweetness. I LOVE white, but I can and do keep it clean.… Read more »

In my world, matching pairs of socks rates highly as a peak ecstatic experience. When that elusive lost sock eventually turns up like you know it will, its worthy of an earth tremor…(nothing too tumultuous please!)

surely uranus in the 6th house makes me almost the opposite of a virgo? I have strong resistance to system and routine (although they are a good antedote to all that high strung, zippy uranus energy) and they do soothe my little taurus heart

late degrees virgo bang at the start of my 5th house – no planets in virgo – but this whole saturn/uranus thing has turned out messy – just found out I am being made redundant so that is an ego blow! ego is a 5th house thing, isn’t? how you manifest to the outside world? and with uranus in my 10th house – career path etc it feels uncanny but my job (as a law lecturer) doesn’t really click with me – so maybe it is for the best – will force me to find something more true to myself.… Read more »

Sorry to hear about your bad luck, DC.
I can completely empathise as I am in the same situation!
I’m starting a new job next week but I was freaking out about income…Despite having pretty robust savings – I was horrified at the thought of actually using them!!

I’m assuming from your name that you’re also a Taurus…Maybe it’s a change that you needed to be forced into? (Like myself!)
That’s what got me through 🙂

Just shrug at lost socks these days. One miraculous turned up today and I was pleased.
Does mismatched mean (1) wearing two different socks or (2) paired up as mismatched? Cause I assume that 1 is a result of 2.

I don’t care that other people wear mismatched socks, but why in heaven’s name would people not pair socks up properly? Just asking.

oh th oddness of Everything,never mind th sox! i gave up sorting them long ago,if i can find 2, i count myself lucky most days.,if i were a Virgo,i would most likely have imploded by now-i Love systems but can’t seem to stick to any~and if Ever i am on time,everyone else is late or no show? Long ago ‘charm schul’ instructor (my dad’s idea when i was 13) said “a lady Never runs to catch a bus” (but i know wot th lady in th picture is doing-checkin in th machine for stray socks!)

You cannot leave the house without firstly….

I am so virgo when it comes to work & intuition…. I think this why I got into the hospitality industry because of the fast pace and I rely so much on my intuition that I don’t even think about what I am doing…. I just switch off & do it.… Read more »

I have nothing in Virgo at all, but often when I read on astro sites about Virgo traits, I identify strongly with them. Like, my answer to that question would be (c) – I like lots of systems in place to ensure everything runs smoothly. I guess that comes from Virgo straddling my 6th house – routines. I have lots of routines to prevent things from ‘going wrong’, and to keep me feeling safe, in control, and unflustered. And in my work, I’m a recovering perfectionist.

Virgo Moon…gotta be pretty deep Virgo, huh? I do feel that informs a lot of my personality… I am definitely critical…of other people, yes, but am hardest on myself, extremely health-conscious, perhaps even occasionally hypochondriac, and the more positive side of the Virgo moon: deep appreciation for beauty in all things. 🙂

AliB aqua
AliB aqua

I too have discovered my Virgo moon. Hugely critical of others, high standards for the entire world, especially myself. Not much of a hypochondriac (leave that for my cancer husband) but I see wonderfully beautiful textures in strange places.

Really the odd socks thing doesn’t bother me too much. I have a minor internal struggle re whether I should wear them. And usually I try disregard the opinions of others.

Quite Virgo indeed.

Sun – Merc – Mars in Virgo, Sun in the 4th, Merc and Mars in the 5th, along with Pluto in Libra in the 5th.

Do you know, whenever I see anyone running for public transport I am driven to a shocking, spiking rage of detestation and scorn because:

1. Obviously late.
2. Sweaty.
3. Most likely sweaty in my vicinity.
4. The world does not stop for you.
5. Are you a surgeon? What’s the hurry?

I should add, Taurus rising.

It’s a condition. I’m trying to manage it.

virgo cat
virgo cat

That is hilarious! I will think that every time I run for the bus from now on…
Though I do think #5 when people speed through amber lights. And yes, yuck to sweaty.

As a Virgo with Mars in Gemini I am always SO distracted that I am late for just about everything, or squeaking in at the last possible second.

unpredictable pisces
unpredictable pisces

yes i decided to change all the habits listed by Friday above, when i got SO sick of being late as f*ck all the time, affecting my friendships, work, personal stress levels, bank balance (catch taxi instead of bus etc)…over it. So I do my best now to not be the stressed, late person. Unless ETA doesn’t matter then I do whatever I like. Time and place, you understand.

Quite, Quite Virgo, let’s see:

-Venus and Mars Conjunction in Virgo in the 5th House
-North Node in Virgo in the 5th house
-Mercury in Virgo in the 4th
-Saturn in Virgo in the 4th

I can be very critical when it comes to writing, art etc that I feel is not good.

I also hate going to someone’s house that is messy, and I’m not talking they didn’t make their bed, more like a pile of dirty dishes or cut up food on a bench, yucko.
