It’s true what they say about Virgos. Not that they’re half school sock monitor and half sacred whore – though i did say that. And not even the bit about them elatedly correcting your pronunciation in the middle of even the most profound dialogue. Noticing nuance, being fuqing thing about hemlines and split ends, the power-guilt-tripping – no, no, no.
The Virgo trait I am thinking on today, with the Sun newly IN the sign of Virgo – not to mention Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Pandora and the North Node also – is their genius writing ability. Virgos throng the list of renowned writers & scribes. Is it their attention to detail, finely honed observation skills, words witch vibe, cosmically upped cognition or pattern recognition?
There are SO many of these Virgos but some examples include: Jean Rhys, Jorge Luis Borges, A.S. Byatt, Ben Bradlee, Janet Frame, Jennifer Egan, William Golding, Cheryl Strayed, Edgar Rice Burroughs, James Lipton, Tolstoy, D.H. Lawrence, Mary Shelley, James Fenimore Cooper, Tanith Lee, George R.R. Martin, Roald Dahl, Robertson Davies, Stephen King, H.G. Wells, Rebecca Skloot, Leonard Cohen, Marian Keyes, Edith Sitwell, Jessica Mitford, John Green, Samuel Johnson, H.L. Mencken, Upton Sinclair, O Henry, Agatha Christie, Barbara Ehrenreich.
