I discovered that:
"The Virgo motto could be "Perfect is almost good enough." On one hand, this trait makes you very employable, for you're not likely to do shabby work. On the other hand, you can be so finicky that you put limitations on your interactions and experiences before they happen. You'll be happier if you can learn to be selectively less critical, both of others and yourself." (I have to admit there is a lot of truth in this).
Virgo Greatest Strength: Your ability to focus your attention (with me mostly, but not always my head can wander off at times)
Virgo Possible Weakness: Need for perfection gets in the way of enjoyment (this trait is a bit annoying!)
Virgo's Lucky Number:
The lucky number for Virgo is five (also known as the Pentad).
Sapphire is the birthstone and also the gemstone given for anniversaries of the 5th and 45th years of marriage. (This took me by surprise - what a coincidence - my birthday gift from Dave is to be a ring, and we are celebrating our 45th wedding anniversary later this month!).
In general, if people are typical of their zodiac sign, relationships between Virgo and other signs (including the complementary opposite sign, Pisces) are as shown below.
|Virgo with Virgo:||Harmonious|
|Virgo with Libra:||Harmonious|
|Virgo with Scorpio:||Harmonious|
|Virgo with Sagittarius:||Difficult|
|Virgo with Capricorn:||Harmonious|
|Virgo with Aquarius:||Turbulent|
|Virgo with Pisces:||Difficult|
|Virgo with Aries:||Turbulent|
|Virgo with Taurus:||Harmonious|
|Virgo with Gemini:||Difficult|
|Virgo with Cancer:||Harmonious|
|Virgo with Leo:||Harmonious|
No one told me this 45 years ago - but luckily Dave is Taurus - is there really some truth in this?
"You won't find health-conscious Virgo tearing through a huge plate of nachos. This sign prefers a snack that is both wholesome and filling. Soy nuts are just the ticket for a hungry Virgin. Choose the kind with no artificial flavoring and preservatives, please. This sign treats their body like a temple, even when it comes to snacks!( from http://horoscopes.aol.com/)"
(Definiently not so - I just love a cream cake for a snack, so no truth here, or do you disagree?)
Virgo Birth Flower is the Aster also called starwort.
The meaning of the Aster flower is Love, Faith, Wisdom and symbolizes Valor
Lucky Numbers:5, 14, 23, 32, 41, 50 (might try this on the lottery this week)
Lucky Colours:Orange, White, Grey, Yellow, Mushroom (some say Green as well)
Lucky Stone : Topaz
Lucky Talisman:The Key, The Owl, The Tau, The bamboo and serpent
So if you were sending me a card or GIFT (joking but, if you like) could you use any of this info? We have Asters in the garden - so I could get a bunch of them perhaps wrapped with a Orange,white,yellow, mushroom(!) bow. The ring is a defo - but what - a sapphire or a topaz stone, I was thinking of a diamond myself! I would also love a cream cake, definitely not the nachos or a soya nut, but then I'm suppose to be on a diet so perhaps I should?
So birth signs could give you some ideas for using flowers, colours, charms on cards, but for the rest, although interesting reading, little use in crafting. However, the characteristics were certainly revealing and I'm defo a Virgo - have you looked up your sign, and more importantly did you find any truth there?
I have another tutorial lined up for Monday, but I'm struggling to get it spot on! (lol) I'm certainly one fusspot Virgo!!!
