His Virgo Horoscope
Virgo seems to have it all together, and one of the first things he’ll probably share with you is at least one way you can improve your life. Virgo is constantly working on you to do things "right." What’s especially rare about Virgo is the way he gets such a kick out of helping others. "Service" is his watchword, and unless he’s doing something useful and practical, he feels inadequate and powerless. One of the main ways Virgo seeks to be of help to others is by pointing out their flaws and helping them work toward a life that is more organized and focused.
This helpfulness, especially when it’s delivered in all earnestness, can be endearing, but after a while most people will reach a point at which they’d rather Virgo were more prone to notice what’s good about them. Yet, Virgo can’t help seeing how you could be even better. You can be dressed to the nines with perfect garment-shoe-makeup color coordination, and yet Virgo will zoom in on that tiny little cat hair on your hem. It pays to have a thick skin, or grow one quickly, when you get involved with this fastidious person.
With Mercury ruling Virgo, the process of breaking the complex down to its most basic components comes naturally to these people. Virgo’s zodiac image is the virgin, which represents the purity of purpose and the devotion with which these indispensible souls have to sorting out the wheat from the chaff, following (and sometimes creating) rules and methods, and employing their ability to discriminate between what should stay and what should go with quick dispatch.
Aphrodisiac: Tempt Virgo With an Invitation
to Redesign Your Life
No Virgo can resist an offer to come in and help you clean a closet, rearrange your filing system, or even tackle the mess in your garage. Just as he gets turned on by the act of making your life more perfect, you can turn to him and let him know you’d do him anywhere, anytime. Although you might not think these attributes would give Virgo much sex appeal, that’s not the case at all. As with everything else, Virgo becomes immersed in the topic of sex: how to turn you on and variants on positions and techniques that will keep you stimulated beyond your wildest dreams.
Friendship: Virgo Is the Best Bestie Ever
Even before you’re romantically involved, you’ll find Virgo’s sympathetic and problem-solving approach to be helpful whenever you need advice. Like most people, Virgos need your acceptance, but it’s with a twist that makes it a little different. Virgo won’t ask you to accept him, because he figures he’s already pretty much got it right. He probably will, however, ask you to accept his advice, even when you didn’t ask for it and don’t want it. This can have benefits, of course, but there’s no question that Virgo’s fussiness and "fix-it" attitude can also get on your nerves. It’s far easier to get Virgo to be your friend than it is to get him to stop trying to rearrange your life, because Virgo will always take every opportunity to be of service. However, once you get to know him better, and he figures you either have your life in order or you don’t like his meddling, he’ll disappear without explanation. Don’t worry. Virgo just needs a little reminder you’re still there and you want to see him. He never minds when you call him rather than waiting for him to call you. You should never take this lack of communication as a personal affront. He overschedules himself, and he does realize it when he’s unable to keep in touch the way he should.
Sensuality: Virgo’s Got the Perfect Recipe
Mercury is the planet of news and information, and as Virgo’s ruler, it translates Virgo’s impulse to know the right way to do everything into acts related to sex and love too. Virgo is more than capable of having fun but will seek out new ways to have intercourse, or find out why a certain method works better than another and do whatever he can to please you. Virgo can be quite lusty indeed, but even when in the throes of passion, he’ll be remembering something he read or heard, abruptly switch positions and start doing something totally wonderful that makes you feel even better than before. You may start out wondering how Virgo’s clinical approach to lovemaking can be sensual at all, but you’ll find out before you’re done having your first orgasm together — probably precisely timed and induced by the perfect combination of physical and emotional stimuli.
Type of Lover: Virgo Is There to Serve
Do you love oral sex? Lots and lots of it? No problem. Virgo will know exactly how to get you there that way, and will improvise and invent different techniques as he sees how your body responds. None of this is done with any kind of competition in mind, by the way. He really, sincerely, just wants to do a good job! You can help him along by letting him know when he’s hitting the right places. The more difficult thing will be getting him to allow you to give him pleasure. Expect instruction on this, as in all things, but you can also bet you’ll enjoy watching him respond. One of his all-encompassing orgasms will be worth all the "good jobs" you’ve wished he would have given you over the course of your relationship.
In Bed: Virgo Has Stamina — and a
Few Hot Spots Too
Virgo strives to keep himself in good shape, so there’s never a problem with him pooping out before he brings you the satisfaction you’re after. When it comes to pleasing him, you’ll have to remember this: Just like it’s never easy to get inside him to see what he’s thinking or feeling, it’s also difficult to get to the parts of his body that drive him wild. That’s because, in addition to the intestines — due to their ability to take what’s needed and get rid of the rest — Virgo has an affinity toward the nervous center known as the solar plexus. Positioned behind the stomach, it isn’t all that easy to get to; but you can gently massage the upper part of his belly and then quickly discover where his main "on" switch is located.
In Relationship: Virgo Is Hard to Catch and
Harder to Cut Away
Virgo will be coy about being "caught" in a relationship with you, because he takes a lot of time to make up his mind about commitments. Virgo wants to be honorable at all times, and if he can’t be honestly devoted to you, he’ll try to push you off until he feels more ready. You can accelerate the process by deferring to him on this matter, but also by ensuring he realizes how much you appreciate him. Ask for his advice, treat him with all the respect he is due, and he’ll hang around for as long as you want him there — and perhaps a bit longer.
The Heart: He’s Detached at First, But Has
a Heart of Gold
Virgo seems to be aloof and detached on the outside but has a heart of gold. You’ll see this right away, though not from anything he tells you. You’ll simply be amazed at how touchingly sweet he is by the way he treats his family and friends — and you. When he accepts you into his inner circle, you will know you have one of the most dependable people possible playing on your team. He’ll make plans for the two of you together that will extend way beyond the time span of your usual social calendar, make sacrifices, and contribute to your causes, all because he really, truly does want to serve you.
Breaking Up: Virgo Can Be Crushed by
You’d think that someone who so freely offers opinions about the things he sees that he doesn’t like would be less sensitive than he is…but no. Virgo not only will be crushed by your rejection, he’ll also have real problems taking no for an answer. Virgo will present his case in as thorough and as detailed a way as possible, and he won’t understand how you can make a decision like this based on not "feeling" it. When it comes to him leaving you, the separation will come as gradually as the relationship was formed. He’ll stop calling as much and not be available when you reach out to him, until one day, when you ask what’s gone wrong, he gives you the bad news.
Knowing all this while you’re in a relationship should make you feel really proud to have Virgo as a partner. This is someone who is extremely selective about the people he gets involved with. However, you can’t let this prevent you from being honest about the way you feel toward him. There may be times when the critique he gives you seems more like nit-picking, and you will read through this and decide he really is a control freak. Still, if you can live with that, and understand he only tells you these things because he loves you, this relationship can be the kind that lasts a lifetime, because it’s built on true caring and concern for your welfare.
Staying Sexually Fit: Virgo Needs to Keep
Calm and Eat Right to Be at His Best
Virgo has two weaknesses that are very much interrelated. This constantly concerned person can become very nervous. Can you imagine what it’s like to spend so much time putting together detailed logistics, only to be forced to depend on flawed human beings to help carry them out? The anxiousness that accompanies such behavior leads Virgo to have problems with assimilation and elimination. Put in more clear-cut terms, Virgo has to stay calm, plus eat healthy and well to remain balanced, or trouble with the intestines is likely to develop. When he gets ill, sex is out of the question, so you’ll want to help him here, maybe by reminding him how crucial exercise and adequate fluid intake are to his health. Won’t your Virgo be surprised when you offer supportive suggestions to him? He’ll appreciate it too, because it isn’t very often that he thinks about himself before taking care of someone else’s needs.
