Clean-Freak Virgo Dishes the Dirt

The daily celebrity gossip show TMZ airs video clips of Hollywood stars caught on the run. Then the TMZ staff, a little clique of nobodies, ridicules the videos. TMZ was conceived and founded by a Virgo, Harvey Levin (born Sept. 2), first as a website and then a TV show, and it exemplifies negative Virgo values and the way Virgo makes enemies.

Virgos are their own ideal, but negative Virgo is secretly insecure and therefore cannot tolerate other people's faults or sins. It's always others who lied or copycatted, not them, and the doctor gave Virgo an infection at the hospital. They aren't lying, but they are wired for negativity. Poor innocent Virgo seems insulted or victimized at every turn: A driver cut them off, their Match.com date tried to make a pass, the nail salon gave them plantar warts, and so on. Turn your back and Virgo will tell everyone about what you did to them, or about how tacky your clothes are. This is their way of staying better than everyone else.

Negative Virgo makes enemies almost as a hobby. They call friendly people "condescending" or invent cruel nicknames. Ruled by the planet Mercury, Virgos have whip-smart critical and analytical minds, see through everybody, and if their natal Mercury is in Virgo, they tattle. Never tell a Virgo your secrets. Even when Virgos selflessly sit by your hospital bed, they are collecting juicy details and are hoping to be written into your will. Nitpickers and brown-noses, negative Virgos make great secretaries, copyeditors, stylists, clerks, and servers. Many like to work around powerful people because it generates good gossip. Negative Virgos are also cheap, wearing sweats and cleaning their little apartments every Saturday, but they lust after luxury cars, and some even buy them. They fancy themselves fashion authorities. The "Ten Worst Dressed Women List" was created by Richard Blackwell, a Virgo (August 29); no surprise there.

Virgos are born from August 23— September 22

You've Heard About Virgos and Addiction?

Talented Virgos like B.B. King (Sept. 16) or Beyoncé (Sept. 4) can stay popular for years; they are competitive and business-minded. Negative Virgo superstars can become so self-conscious and self-critical that they will go into hiding, like Michael Jackson (August 29) or Greta Garbo (Sept. 18). Almost every list of Virgo traits includes a propensity for addiction (River Phoenix, August 23; Amy Winehouse, Sept. 14; Hank Williams, Sept. 17). All signs can be addicts—we need individual charts to determine the likelihood— but it is extra hard for Virgos, who believe in perfection, to accept it when they are the ones who need to change. Negative Virgos try to keep their addictions hidden. I know a Virgo who leaves her dinner guests and hides in her garden shed to sneak a smoke and after five-day alcohol benders tells friends and bosses she had "the flu." Virgos are not stupid and they know when change is called for, but to them, change means plastic surgery, not psychotherapy.

Want to stop a Virgo's tattling and gossip? Say, "Stop your tattling and gossip." They will be horrified and ashamed.

By now, everyone knows Virgos aren't always virgins. The women love sex because it's all about them and they can talk about it later, but don't muss their hair or bedspreads. Sex has to be on Virgo's terms and preferably on someone else's turf, so negative Virgo men have no problem paying for it, like Hugh Grant (Sept. 9) and Charlie Sheen (Sept. 3) or paying a surrogate to have their kids or raise them, and when Virgo males are bored, a favorite kink is public sex acts (Pee Wee Herman, August 27; Anthony Weiner, Sept. 4), which embarrasses their people and ruins their careers.

Negative Virgo Avatars: Jared Fogle (Aug. 23), Charlie Sheen (Sept. 3), Ivan the Terrible (Sept. 4), Nicole Richie (Sept. 21).

    Not going to lie, and its not something to be proud of; but everything written in this article is exactly how I am at my worst. I have a really bad tendency of making friends with people I dont like, just to destroy them behind their back and they are never the wiser... and in all honesty... whatever it is the person has done to aggravate me to resort to this; Its never extremely serious, 80% of the time its over something petty but its petty things that have accumulated over time... & then I snap and resort to plotting and discreet extreamities. This is going to sound so bad... but it just makes me feel better, they can say whatever they like and ill just smile and joke with them and listen to their ‘problems’ & comfort them, while I plot away & work at destroying and sabotaging them when their back is turned. The minute i take a disliking to someone, i become their bestest friend but also their worst enemy. I do want to change but... this is something i cant help doing!

    This is interesting. As a Virgo woman myself, I've always been well aware of my own faults. Like the fact that my temper is out of this world, I tend to kind of lose my sense of humanity, and do something crazy. I'm fully aware of how quickly I can have a change in attitude for the WORST and know that I need a serious attitude change. I'm the descendant of a Virgo mother and aquarian father, and also a child of Divorce AND abandonment, my mother left when I was 8(as did her mother to her). I can truly say I've got a lot to be pissed about. But I NEVER complain about it. Why? Because I'm not an attention seeker first and foremost, secondly that's embarrassing so why even mention it? Third I'm over it. It happened and it's done. Which may be the Aquarius in me, being able to step away from a situation emotionally and give it some deeper thought. (Something my dad instilled in me.) my mother on the other hand the more holy of the two, taught me things like manners, respect, humility, and humbleness, she was a Virgo woman with a dark side of course but all signs have a dark side of course. Maybe I do victimize myself a lot but sometimes MOST of the time I am the victim. Lol. And only a narcissist says someone's ALWAYS playing the victim card. What people fail to realize is most virgos don't lash out right away (either nows not the right time OR we thought twice about your feelings. Guaranteed.) we shut down.

    My best friend constantly throws shade...constantly. She'll even go as far as talking about my non existent mother.....I let that shit slide because i know that's what kind of person she is. (The Aquarius in me, accepting things for what they are and moving along). Sometimes though it gets old...and That's when the darker side of me emerges and my humanity switch gets flipped, and her life flashes before my eyes as I'm taking it. BUT like the libra she is she flips the script and makes me the bad person in everyone's eyes. Like she's been doing since we were toddlers. It's simple. Be nice to me and I'll be an angel to you. I was that girl in school that wore stupid clothes, couldn't afford nice things, got bullied and beat on. People always came for me even my step mother who was a Leo. She never forgot to mention how much better she was than my mother and how "Girl your mom didn't teach your dad how to dress, she CANNOT DRESS!! She dressed like a country bumpkin ..blah blah" This same woman (my own stepmother/a LEO) proceeded to tell everyone in her family that I'd be a whore, and be pregnant soon. Well I'm 21, turning 22 this year. I have no children and NO MAN. I can't even fathom this generation of boys. Anyway, yeah I work went to beauty school, now in photography school, idk what I'll do next, I love to travel and have my own things. No, I don't feel as though I'm better than anyone, ever UNTIL they try to bring up my flaws. That's when I'm thinking to myself, "sit down, before I verbally destroy you and your entire existence." Sometimes it's not nothing we're tripping over. We have flashbacks, especially when similar things happen in the present. Something else is going on, the problem is, nobody ever notices with us virgos until they've talked about us so bad and it's already too late.

    Cons: I've got no problem admitting that I'm bossy as fuck, and when things don't go my way all hell breaks loose. If I don't like something you've said, depending on who you are, I WILL say so immediately don't care if I cut you off or walk away mid sentence and hurt your feelings.

    Pros: I'm also not afraid to admit that I'm nice, smart, funny, loyal and giving. I'll give my last if that's what you need a thousand times again.

    I WILL keep ALL of your secrets until you've crossed me. Sometimes even then I will keep them. Depends on who you are once again.

    I'd go to war behind my family members.

    Tell me all the bad things you've done and watch me love you anyway undoubtedly. It isn't my place to judge is what I try to remember, along this journey on the place we call earth. Good day y'all.

    Our culture tends to create narcissism in people so perhaps that is why so many people are noticing more of these tendencies in others more often no matter what sign they are born under. Just my thoughts on the matter.

    Thank you Persephone for posting that!

    With that being said..... I'm here to defend the sign of Virgo! Hmmm....another article dumping on Virgos as usual, but hey it's cool. Actually I've become immune to it. Frankly I find it amusing. Now I'm not gonna say that this isn't true.....just not for all of us Virgos. To be honest, this sounds like my husband's ex-wife.....but that's a long story. By the way he's a Gemini.

    As for myself , I'm a Virgo Sun, Taurus Moon, Sagittarius Ascendant. I'm an Indigo (truth seeker), empath, (have a heart) and an introvert ( independent/need my space). I love my sign and proud of it. People are gonna hear what they wanna hear and believe what they wanna believe. As Persephone said we live in a society that creates narcissists. Real is the new fake and fake is the new real. Of course others are gonna see us as being critical, judgemental, negative and such because we are natural analysts. We see things as they really are and speak on it. Most people like to be told a fabricated lie to their face and like to be coaxed....but we Virgos aren't like that. We'll give it to you straight with no chaser. If you don't want the truth, don't ask a Virgo. Simple as that. But I guess that’s why we make enemies... lol. True, we may appear to set high standards, which may be a tall order, but can you blame us for wanting to see the best in others? True no one is perfect, including us Virgos, but let's be real, society sucks. If we are harsh or cold, as someone said, we get used a lot by people and eventually loose trust in them, because we are helpers. We’re a service sign that loves to help people, but unfortunately, we don’t always get that in return. I guess our helping would be taken as “interfering” to some. And probably why many of us don’t have a lot of friends, because we know a lot of people can be phony. That’s why we are discriminative of who we let in. But who says you got to have a lot of friends anyway? Society. Now before you ask, “How come Virgos can dish it, but can’t take it”, what many don’t know is that we are very hard on ourselves, that’s why we’re defensive when others criticize us. It’s bad enough that we dump on ourselves, so we don’t need to hear it from anyone else, because we already know. That’s why we work so hard to be perfect, but what we fail to realize is that we are human too and it’s okay to be imperfect. True, we don’t like to be wrong, but who doesn’t ;gotta have the last word, but who doesn’t? Yes we have faults, flaws and annoying habits like any other SIGN and if you know about natal charts and astrology, some of those “annoying” habits, flaws and faults could be shared in common with the signs you are. Just keep that in mind, before dumping on Virgos or any other sign for that matter. Oh and about the Virgin thing, it has to do with fertility, not sexuality. That’s why the sign shows a woman holding a sheath of wheat. Overall, we’re really not bad people. If you’re lucky to be in our circle, we’re really cool people, who can be a lot of fun.

    "We are a very misunderstood sign. We lie because we don't like conflict because we care about others emotions way to much. We are always blaming people for our problems because we are perfectionist which means we really think we are perfect, a lot of things we can't control. We are very independent, which means we won't ask for help even when we know we need it. Don't blame us, it's all about when we were born. Virgos are here to give love and this is why we don't belong because everything else is irrelevant. I hate being a Virgo at times because people are my weakness but if the world was right then it wouldn't be a weakness. We loose trust in people because we get used a lot in life and we don't understand why people don't treat us like we treat them. Virgos are so misunderstood"

    bless her soul this is spot on, if money didnt exist, porn didnt exist, alot of society issues didnt exist virgos would be one of the greatest signs of zodiac. We are generally nice and good people, we just have been hurt or fucked over so bad that we cant stop thinking about it.

    our minds our like machines.

    I think alot of people are confused here. They are confusing a sun sign with whether or not someone is a narcissist or malignant narcissist.

    Our culture tends to create narcissism in people so perhaps that is why so many people are noticing more of these tendencies in others more often no matter what sign they are born under.

    Just my thoughts on the matter.

    It also depends on how you were brought up. Someone could be stubborn about changes but that doesn't mean they're Virgos. My friend and I are both Virgos. While I have these little rules which I find it hard to break, my friend is really carefree about everything. When I asked if she felt the same about the things that bugged me, she just simply said "Why do you have to think so hard on it? Just let it go". I am aware of the dark sides you have said, I critized others even though I myself is the same. But My mother is a philanthropist, which has affected me through my teenagehood and I have learned to understand why others did what they did. Thank you for your post, it was a good read.

    I am a Virgo but I am afraid of having a dark side. I can be self critical when it comes to hurting others. But I definitely am not exactly a perfectionist. I have a strong sense of helping someone though to help them smile. Virgos are sensitive I can be like that. But I am not dark or I try not to be. I hate being critical to others. I am just critical to what is dark. I think something's wrong when it's not. Worry-wart yes lol! I constantly try to fix something to help someone out even if it is small.

    Virgos I have known, including rising Virgo like my Mother and my uncle are such liars. Not small white lies, but big, huge life changing lies. They can be, and in my experience, totally self absorbed and vengeful people. Impossible to be around without feeling totally uncomfortable because of their critizing constantly. Anyone I have ever met in my life who is a Virgo are totally crazy! I keep them well out of my life. We don't get along at all! Life with a Virgo is a nightmare.

    Wow this is on point about this Virgo I was with now an ex...I always said almost all this you wrote to her but she just couldn't see herself this way ...why because she played victim to everything that went wrong in her life..totally blamed me for everything... Nothing was ever her fault to her...she even spoke about me badly to people on the internet she didn't know, she was a great liar..great at pretending... Great at blaming... She also talked about everyone especially the people who did good and worked as she never really has...smh thank you for this...that Virgo I was with was a narcissist for sure... Oh she was abusive and flirted and I sure she's done things but will take it to her grave before admitting anything...

    From my own experiences i´d have to say that this article really is spot on. I am a gemini/cancer cusp and have been surrounded by virgo´s my whole life! My mother is a virgo, my sister is one, my dad is a aries/virgo cusp. I am basically surrounded by them my whole life.

    The thing i hate most about them is that they want to appear a-la magnificent to the outside world. Cant and never will admit a fault.. harsh, cold.. and a master at manipulations and guilt trips. To self abosrbed to take for granted that there are other ppl wanting to help them to. But then again, a virgo can only help him/herselfl because they analyze and make a scenario in their own head. With anything, everything. They might ask advice but its mostly so you feel sorry for them, they already have everything laid out and planned out in their own mind. The positive trait is that they care alot( but mostly for the wrong type of person, some fixed leo sign or aries) And then complain about their loved ones that they are the polar opossites. (being highly indulgent when it comes about being negative about his/her spouse)And only care if it suits and benefits them. I am not a virgo hater, i am pin pointing the negative experiences i had with them.I for once was a fool now left with a huge mental scar because of a specific Virgo person that entered my life. But the worst trait of them is they lack empathy. Their empathy is not from the heart but from what's logic. They find it very hard to put themselves in someone else shoes. The only reason i can mentally get along with them is because i have a ruling planet in mercury, a virgo's ruling planet is mercury as well. But i can see through their schemes and see their true intentions. Just keep one thing in mind!

    this is going to be very important.

    It never is what it seems with a virgo!


    Ps: Excuse my bad english!

    its that dark negative side that really makes all the difference isnt it, no matter what sign. i seem to revolve around the most difficult signs, aries mom, virgo dad, im a scorpio daughter. first love a pisces. first husband a sag, second husband virgo. aries women tho i will run from. as a matter of a fact, one of my children was due to be an aries, she wasnt allowed out until she was a second week taurus. i joke u not. but i digress.

    i just had to comment on marias virgo commentary. with all the strife in my life, astrology was the stuff that made me a better human, helped me understand other signs, so now i tick everybody off but good because im quite good at playing devils advocate. i would love to be an astrology expert, but its so hard. my kids appreciate the fact that thru astrology we arent so quick to make decisions on knee jerk emotional reactions to lifes curveballs or peoples wild and weird ways.

    back to marias virgo analysis. my virgo who i dont want anymore, but i wont throw away, ive known for almost 30 yrs. i was always dazzled by him, but knew he wasnt bf material, too cold. but life works in weird ways and one day years later found that he managed to make me fall in love with him. im a scorp, so when we fall we fall hard. oh so true, what a nightmare. but so are lots of people. i never quite got the virgin thing, because virgos aint no virgins heh heh, something i very much appreciated. never got the sea-goat for caps either, but the fallen angel thing, wow did that make sense. ive known alot of out there people, but virgos are so analytical and practical, flaky they are not. but the righteous thing, oh yeh. we r in the middle of him finally getting help for mental illness, he bamboozled a few, but finally had a dr who he respected convince him,his problems are mostly his own impulsive behavioral attitudes. big step. he is a defender no doubt of lifes downtrodden, he would rally behind those folk and leave the business of family responsibility to me,which i greatly resented. but on the otherhand, its probaly one of the reasons that make him so endearing. but you r absolutely right i would never tell him his symbol could be angel because he would justify all his antics due to righteousness. and u r so right again, they have far less fear of consequences because they believe they r behaving on the side of justice. but yes his childhood wasnt very nice, he didnt get nearly enough attention (neither was mine,oops theres that resentment again)hes not very good at showing love and hes gone from being dutiful to be included in the will, to preventing the people who love him most succeed, most likely because he fears we would leave him if we were successful, not because he was a first class jerk. i think virgo is the most misunderstood sign, angel or demon. fallen angel,u got it maria. but being in the company of that fallen angel makes one feel pretty special and at times blessed to know such a unique being. idk, i dont have to live with him anymore and that makes a world of difference.LOL

    thankyou sylvia, ive very much enjoyed reading your material and am glad to have discovered you

    This is an article about Virgo's dark side. Virgo has a bright side just like every other sign. And in my experience, Virgo isn't the most hated sign. Virgos are very useful, productive people even when others don't like them. The most hated sign, I think, is Pisces. That's because it's the least understood.

    Worst part of my story is the cruelty and he calls this victimizing myself but how in which world could anyone do this to another human being. I spent 9 yrs with this virgo. Everything described in this article above is incredibly true. His son is also a virgo and they seem to have really teamed up this time around. I know none of my pregnancies came out by surprise and yes i blame myself for allowing it but u would think after fist time it happened i would have been more careful but i dont believe invabortions and i always thought children are such a blessed. My daughter is a huge blessing as my son will be too. I am 33 and cant believe this is happening to us. This man is 44 yr old virgo.... just how can he do this and not know his faults...i have put him down alot bug how could i not?? I have pug up with so much. I met him i was 23.... whst was i thinking??

    I have been with a virgo for 9 years. Broke up at least 6 times. He has a son. 22 yrs old. We have a 5 year old and a baby thst could be born any minute. He drank alcohol to the point that so many things got out of hand. He would mske me wait on him for dinners while he was budy gettjng drunk. Sometimes he wouldn't come home till 3 or 4 am. I would be irritated and so upset i would take it out on his son and my daughter. There were so many nights i would lose it on him when he walked in drunk i would push him and throw things at him. I should gave never allowed myself to get physical with him. He would critizise me for everything and how i would do things wrong, accuse me of sleeping around. Verbally abuse call me names. He never apologized for anything. Never saw anything wrong with what he did. Always told me he went to work construction for us and buy food. He never saw his role as a father and partner as important. He thought he was suppose to provide anf thst was it. He was great at building things. Had great talents and a true perfectionist. Blamed me for him not being able to get ahead. Mean while i supported him, emotionally and financially. He did help me when i was raising our daughter for 1.5 year until i went back to school for 1.5 year and started working after many challenges but i focused and accomplished everything without getting any emotional support. I paid the largest portion of the bills rent etc. For a year all the rent while he went to gym and took it easy. I started building mhyself up and doing great and he just took me down constantly. It was a short time b4 he started drinking alot again and id climb up then hed tale me down. Never paid his debts and blamed his life hoinb to shit on me constantly. His son and i started not to get along when i started making rules asking him to finish school and get a job as our place was so small and it was uncomfortable he was always there. I had no privacy ever. Everything started to get to me. I finally snapped decided that maybe what we needed was to move out get a bit of a bigger place. So i started pudhing for that until we did but was blamed gor wanting better and getting out of basement we lived in. S few weeks into new aparment, my partner got a dui he was workjng all over the place he hadnt been coming home as often and was workjng far gor weeks at a time. I helped his son get a job which he screwed up on me. One day i snapped got jnto a fight with the son infront of his dad he swore at me infront of my 5 yr old and like anybody slapped his mouth to he wojld never disrect me like that again. I had paid first and last at apartment as his dad made me do it so i told him to leave anf fknd his own place to live as i was pregnant with 2nd baby. We really needed the space. His dad eventually vanished left me with 5yr old and unborn baby. Never helped me with a cent while i lived there for 6 months alone paying really high rent alone. He played with my feelings lied to me and then told me to go live with my parents for matt leave as he wasnt going yo be around bc he was working. I didnt want to listen to him as i felt he wanted to pawn the resposibility to my parents but he left us and i couldnt afford rent alone so i moved in with my parents who live 2 hrs away. Till now i hardly heard from this virgo and i am probably having our new baby boy any minute now. He hasnt called asked anything. Only a few times to talk to our daughter. But hasnt made any efforts to see her. He left left me with our daughter too but later on b4 she was born he changed his mind so i forgave him gor so many things he put me through durjng pregnancy. This is 2nd time but this time seems its really over. He is a monster and i cant believe who i became. J cant believe im going through this alone while my 5 yr old always asking me when he is coming home or when we are going home to live with him. So much animosity between his son now and him with me. How could all this be???

    this sums up my sister perfectly! Today she was throwing off condescending comments my way because I was too focused on feeding the dog to answer the phone (which I'm sure isn't really important), and called me "lazy" before she answered it herself. Turns out there was no one on the other side, and I suppose she felt foolish after that.

    She honestly needs to stop being so negative all the time. She's a prime example of a Virgo I have to live with, the other Virgos I know seem to be too meticulous at times (not a problem but unless one asks for critique, it's best not to act like some authoritative figure)

    Thanks for this! I'm sure that if I go look for my sign right now, I would no doubt be aware of MY dirty laundry.

    Cheyenne, please don't play his game and mirror him by bullying back. Say something like, "Take your b.s. elsewhere, I'm tired of hearing it." Remember, Virgos respond to reprimands. A man in his 40s has no business talking as he does to a 17-year-old female.

    living with a virgo man (he is my dads roomate/friend not mine) I observe insecurity and extreme narcissism. They CANNOT admit if they are wrong. Like cartman from south park, they will twist and manipulate the situation to justify their actions/behavior. He constantly critisizes my dad, picking his self esteem apart to make him feel better about himself. He overreacts to people, flips out and rages and tries to justify it. Its honestly pathetic. Onetime he was bitching about people and said "i think the problem is that my dick is too big"

    Like wow. How insecure can you be?

    He brags. And he brags hard. Like, annoyingly hard. I can tell by the tone in his voice when he brags that he is trying to make others jealous or make him feel better about himself. Because its not just normal pride. Its blatant, stuck up arrogance. He literally belittles people and makes himself look like a god. He actually talks about himself like a god. He says stuff like "I could get away with murder no problem" and "i could kick ANYONES ass" its a dead serious belief that he is the best person in the world. He can be rude, but if i stick up for myself he will BLOW UP. He has extreme anger problems and tries to justify and normalize it.

    He needs mental help.

    Everyone he is involved with always turns into an enemy somehow. Probably because they were better than him in some way or tried to exert some small miniscule level of natural authority.

    Honestly I see him as a big, fat, narcissistic, delusional, paranoid, bipolar baby. Its pathetic.

    I kissed my boyfriend on the cheek once and he thought we were talking about him and whispering shit and being all secretive. He got all defensive and had to make sure we werent whispering about him. Insecure, paranoid, pathetic.

    My dad is so wrapped around his fat finger that he could tell me to fuck off and if i try to stand up for myself he yells at me, literally puts his hand over my mouth (how rude) and takes his side over his own daughters anyday. Im 17, its not like I'm being a bitch and starting drama. Im trying to move out because my dad and this big virgo baby want me out.

    Probably so my dad can go kiss his feet and worship him for the rest of his life without me seeing him being manipulated by a narcissistic personality so easily.

    Honestly from my experience and reading these comments, this article is very accurate.

    Someone should give me advice. Its like im the only one who can see how sociopathic he is. My dad is so wrapped around his conniving finger, that he refuses to see how crazy this insecure guy is. What do i do.

    This virgo guy just focuses on making me unhappy so ill move out faster. BELIEVE ME IM RUSHING. Who would want to be bullied every day by someone so immature?

    He even throws nickels at my dad and rubber bands and bottle caps and laughs like it was just so funny. What does that sound like? Oh yeah, i remember kids doing that in elementary school. Toddlers even throw things at people and laugh.

    This man literally behaves like a child. And hes in his 40's.

    Someone help me make this sorry excuse for a man see how crazy he is and tear him up piece by piece like he loves doing to everybody else. Im being bullied every day someone give me ideas to bully this guy back.

    My former BF, of twenty-five plus years, was a Virgo. Knowing someone for over half your life is a pretty amazing thing in itself, but things change, awareness develops, and boundaries change the friendship. I think the main reason I lasted so long is that we lived in different states throughout our friendship. I knew she did mean things to her coworkers, as she told me about it. I knew she said horrible things about complete strangers, her family, and coworker-friends, yet somehow I was able to look past these behaviors and find a place for her in my heart. Doesn't everyone deserve love? Or so I thought.

    Here is what happened in a nutshell: As my life started improving, she started picking me apart. Even now when I think about it, the woman never gave me a compliment in all those years, or should I say she did and it included a criticism. I have super healthy self-esteem, so it wasn't something I needed from her. As I was saying she simply started to put or shoot me down every which way she could. The final straw was when one of her minions talked about how intelligent I am, which made her crazy. From the point on she was trying to redeem herself in the eyes of this twit-of-friend. It was pretty pathetic. We all went on a trip together and she did nothing but attack me the whole time, then tried to make up at the end of the trip. By then I was done, completely done. She called a couple of times the next day trying to manipulate the situation, but when I am done, I am done. I waited until I cooled down, then defriended her without a word (we don't share any mutual friends). It was really hard, but one can't associate with a narcissistic person. They will eat you alive.

    I do have to say I have several Virgo friends and I have one assessment to make: If they had a well-nurtured childhood they are fine friends and humans, sans all that negativity. HOWEVER, if they do not resolve a negative childhood, they may just be the worst friend on earth.

    Your right Sylvia.I believe in the same.

    A person is much more than just his/her sun sign.

    folks are versatile,complicated,intricated;almost impossible to be described even using all tools of astrology.

    A person can have several shades even to a single dominant trait which itself could possibaly the blend of his inhereted ability,a conclusion of whole of his astrological chart put together,his environment,and may be some other unknown factors.

    Life is just another name of patience.The more we confront adversaries,the stronger we become.And above all,we should always keep the windows open to our brains open for philosphies,ideas,even religions,no matter how old or new are these.

    bcz you'll never know when you are going to learn some rare goldnen truth even from very old n ancient.

    Thank you for your response.

    shb, I see your point, but I personally don't put a lot of stock in "earth signs," "water signs," and so on, because it forces all personalities into one of four categories (earth, air, fire, or water)--and it's a problem already that Sun sign astrology--which is a 20th-century invention--forces all personalities into one of 12 categories. Although knowing a person's Sun sign is useful because the Sun is the most powerful element in an individual's chart, a person is much more than his or her Sun sign. For a person's chart to be fully and accurately read, we must calculate and consider along with the Sun sign the position of the moon, all the planets and the aspects they make to each other, the rising sign, the moon's nodes, fixed stars, and more.

    ...after they are finished(actually they don't,just paused)i try to show them the diff. angles to the matter and the possibility that they 'might also be' wrong while concluding others negatively.

    Most often,they don't see themselves wrong.they take it pretty much offensive to be told that their judgement could be wrong.

    The reason to that is..

    being an earth sign they can't see 'beyond' and neither have enough intution to grasp a behavior to its core.they even don't believe in intution.

    Also being earthy,they have a tendency to 'grow' roots to everything even it is negative thinking...so once they have planted the roots of negativity to a particular matter/person.it becomes difficult to uproot the plant and impossible if it becomes a tree.

    Its my observation !!..i'd like to see the authors response.

    There's no doubt that virgo men aren't good ones for most of women.

    complainers,nit-pickers,always right or victomized by 'negative people'.

    by the way i've seen same attitude in many capricorns and taurians.

    Earthy zodiacs are so 'down to earth'...all time 'good people'..they just 'can't do' any harm to others.

    i have some virgo and taurian friends,at first i just listen to them showing interest in their whinning....

    I'm a Virgo! And very much proud of it. People like this who negatively talk about Virgos are negative themselves. They just don't understand the complicated Virgo mind. Underneath all the negativity that we make ourselves to be. We are sencier hearts, and if you ever get a hug or a smile from us. That's because it's how we truly feel. A drag are we? I think people who fake smile in a crowd to show face are a drag. On a happier note, I love my Libra man

    I Am a Taurus that was married to a Virgo for 18 years & almost all of what was shared was right on point until the part about they don't like change part. He was a complainer as described everyone played a part in what went wrong in his life. Never really wanted to take fault of his own until it was right dead in his face. Perfect example: Was our divorce we both rode motorcycles but the fact I actually started riding & found a passion for it made him not want to do it anymore because I was better at it. He had multiple accidents in cars & on the motorcycle which ultimately ended up with him in the hospital from what could have been fatal. However where the story gets good is prior to this big accident mind you we have teenagers that we created so for someone to all of a sudden come home & say I think you should go your way & I go mine I've fallen out of love with you is a damn near joke right?? Yep I said the same thing like go & sit down somewhere & take a nap. Although, even we had our misc communication issues we were always able to work them out. Until I received the divorce papers anyway to make a

    I loved this article and page!! I'm a Virgo myself, and I came here to "study" the evil traits of a Taurean acquaintance of mine... And I decided to check my sign as well lol. Ok everything is just extremely true xD to the point I want to try and change myself...!! LOL no seriously, awareness is always the best of gifts and indeed what you say is really true.

    We Virgoes just can't put up with life as it is lol we are just wired differently, as you said. It is quite difficult to bear (again victimization lol). The original Virgo sign is indeed that of an angel: a winged woman or being. We all are like fallen angels compleeeeetely lost in here lol and we really don't know why the f*ck we ended up here. Expect our behavior to mirror that of a figure like that: naïve, eternally LOST, an eternal WTF about having (suffering!) a physical body (health consciousness or rather health panic), an eternal WTF about the evils in this world (whining and criticizing,victimization etc), an eternal wish to escape by any means (addictions), an eternal consiousness of the ruling evils ruling this world (conspiroparanoia and tin-foil-hatting), and an eternal guilt for the sins we don't know we have committed but that bring about that same constant and eternal evil in our lives. Everything pretty eternal indeed lol.

    If you want to understand a Virgo, I'd say watch the movie "Wings Of Desire" by Wim Wenders. Or even better the second part, "Faraway, So Close!". You will see what I mean. We all Virgoes are totally helpless, hopeless, devoted adepts of naïvism, and just poor souls fallen into a black pit. Are we angels then, or see ourselves like angels??? By God Almighty nooooo!! If we were, we wouldn't be here in the tear valley you know...

    I hope everybody here notes the humor in this description. Though it is also true.

    Believe me when I tell you none of us is afraid or appalled when we die: we have too clear of an idea that there MUST be something better than this after all. And we LOVE weird stuff, indeed. We just can't behave normally here, it's too weird. One of my childhood classmates is now into Masonry, no less... I'd rather stick with Taoism and Tantric stuff LOL.

    People can't expect us to behave like common people, and doing things like marrying, hanging out etc. like other people do. We overthink our decisions and everything must be symbolic and meaningful. But when we do our job well and acquire some awareness we become nice spiritual people and we do what we have to do: we never give up a sick parent, or partner, or bro or sis, or a troubled child. We never manipulate or throw people away if they do not fulfil our materialistic needs like other signs like Taurus do. We are unpleasant because we can't be "socially hypocritical" (in that I didn't agree with the article, no brown-nosing for us! Well, at least for me...) and we are not afraid of the genuine dark side in life: poverty, need, loneliness, illness, feeling isolated or bullied. Yet we cannot stand anything that smells like "the seven sins" lol: greed, superficiality, gluttony,... Careful with Ire, though. When one believes oneself "an angel", it can become a really really dangerous person. I think indeed Virgoes can become the most sychopathic sign because of that: they are "punishing evil" and doing it for the righteousness thing. Extreme care with that: you better leave a Virgo alone if he or she believes you are ungodly vermin. NEVER try anything really nasty to a Virgo like extreme bullying, harrasment, stalking, abuse, authority abuse, forcing them into drugs or unwanted sex... That will make them (us) explore their inner sychopath with you as their subject and they will NOT hesitate to play and destroy you completely. And they will know how to. They will be far less afraid of the consequences than you. For them, it's done for the sake of righteousness after all.

    So OK we are pretty badass people indeed but somebody must be there for those people nobody else want to care about, while the rest of the signs is too busy competing for power and money (again victimization, criticism, morality abuse, open accusation to EVERYBODY and a sense of self-importance in one sole sentence! LOL)

    I hope nobody gets offended by the post, greetings and, if you'll excuse me, after all this unpleasant yet entertaining description of our Virgoan flaws and weaknesses we Virgoes should all undoubtedly be ashamed of, I now need to get a drink. Nice Sunday to you all.

    cosmicviajera 4 years ago

    SO TRUE! wow, you really hit the nail on the head with this one. I am a Pisces, and I know many Virgos (unfortunately). I had an ex boss who was a Virgo woman, she was a very angry person because she was such a perfectionist. I also have 2 cousins who are both Virgos, one male one female. They both have basically ran their lives into the ground with their criticism of themselves and everyone around them. My male Virgo cousin was a teen dad, and he never shut up about how "hard" it was. He felt sorry for himself. He did a lot of drugs, and cheated on his wife with multiple people, including her own little sister. He had a thing for young girls, even his daughter felt uncomfortable around him sometimes. He ended up committing suicide a week after leaving rehab, he hung himself and left his children to find his body. While I feel sad that he is gone, truthfully I think he was a coward who was afraid of life, and I don't have much sympathy. My female Virgo cousin is a complete psychopath. She spends the majority of her time criticizing other people. It's almost as if she thinks it's HER JOB to tell EVERYONE what they are doing wrong, and how to fix it. It's actually really sad because if she would just lighten up her life would be so much happier. She is constantly trying to control her husband and her kids and when they don't obey she literally chases them down in a fit of rage. She doesn't know what it means to "go with the flow". She enjoys taking jabs at me and talking behind my back, mostly because she thinks I don't work hard enough for the money and lifestyle I have. She thinks I have it too easy. The funny part about this is, she is an ex crack head, never stepped foot into college, in fact she cannot even spell correctly, and her parents still pay some of her bills. She has no room to talk about other people's flaws. Poor Virgos are their own worst enemy.

    I completely agree with this. I am a virgo woman, and I am afraid it goes on the darkside.. I have many talents, but completely introverted. I tend to hide and often deactivate my facebook account because of my self-critical nature; I avoid speaking to any people in general If I am not 100% sure everything is perfect.

I'm trying and trying to learn to back off and let other people do what they want, not just what I think they should do. I only try and give advice because I want the best for others, but still, it comes across as annoying.

    I disagree...I am totally into signs and the only thing my Virgo male does on this entire list is not want to admit change and in that exact way does the physical and not mental changes. But this entire article is not him at all....and I find so many things like this on him and try to send it to him and because it doesn't describe him he doesn't believe in signs and it frustrates me because I am a true Aquarius and to the TEE. I know signs are true. we were good friends for 2 years before dating ....so I really know him. He is weird but I love that and he was like a virgin and couldn't have sex unless it was "pure" nice good girl sex...now he is ok and wants it all the time...but at first he could barely even touch me i felt like I was in grade school for the longest.

    Virgo men are the most weirdest creatures I've ever came across in my entire life. Emotionally retarded ROBOTS. Ladies if you meet a virgo man don't walk just ruun the opposite direction. They are not husband or boyfriend materials. They are not compatible with any sign trust me.

    My poor little brother. He's a grown man and he acts just like that it's so sad. He takes victim to everything and doesn't know when to give in and just tell the truth, he lies about himself to look perfect but he makes himself look really silly and a lot of people apparently don't like him because of his ways. He has been caught watching under aged porn more than twelve times by the feds and he does is blame it on oher people, he almost got locked up for abusing our neighbors dog when we were kids, but he' not the only Virgo that is ill. Virgos have some sick minds and don't think anything is wrong with them and that everyone else is just lying. They need psychological treatment but probably never will get it because they won't admit to any of their flaws to begin with! Nice article Sylvia, hope it helps someone.
