I have met some virgo's in my life. Men and women. However, I must've been unfortunate because those that I have met have the dodgy vibe to them for some reason. And sometimes, it wasn't just a vibe. They are actually pretty dodgy.
I have an Aunt who was in and out of jail due to estafa. I'm not close with her at all as she didn't get on well with my mom. Unfortunately, she's my dad's sister so can't really completely cut her off. But she had a habit of tricking people to give her money, not do what she prised whether it be work or an item she was selling and then she'd run away. She'd come back with new jewellery, a new car and even treat her family and friends to expensive vacations or hotels or dinners.
Second Virgo is a guy that my sag friend dated for 15 years. Basically, Virgo cheated on my friend and got someone pregnant. He also liked starting businesses that are no good. He had a habit of tricking people about his services and then at the end of the day, he would always have to close down whatever business he started. My sag friend said he's always wanted to be successful but the problem is karma always gets to him because he wasn't doing business the right way.
Next is a Virgo former boss. He wanted to be respected at work so what he did was he criticised all of us to the point that we don't respect him anymore. He was arrogant and was wanting to demonstrate his position without even trying to get along with people who work with him. In the end, most of the original team including myself, left.
My question is, is Virgo actually power and influence hungry deep down but does not know how to execute it? If so, what do you need to get you in a good direction? As well, does the need to succeed tend to overpower morals?
I'm not judging. I just want to hear the thought process of Virgos. Of course the ones mentioned earlier are on the negative spectrum. I do know 2 amazing virgo ladies tho. One is my bestfriend. Very nice girl and have known her since I was a kid. The other one is a girl I worked with. She was the office assistant and was very good at organising admin stuff at work. I'll talk about the good, stuff in a different thread later on.
you can't really expect anything less of a mutable, especially one ruled by mercury (patron of thieves and inventor of lying). mercury was a magician, an illusionist, a trickster and those traits can be seen in his children (gemini and virgo). now as a rule, mutables are duplicitious by nature. each and every one of them, a con artist in their own right. gemini and virgo are both gifted with the tongue for this amongst the mutables. it's just that, virgos know that sometimes it's silence that allows some lies to truly grow.
and the duality at play with virgo is the 'virgin and the hoe.'
when you have the need to have 'everything just right,' yet at the same time cannot always achieve that perfection.... you will learn that though virgo may want to do 'what's right and proper,' that we sometimes would also want to pay the hoe her dues. this of course does not necessarily have to involve sex. see when we go the easy route, when we cut corners.... that in itself is a violation of what we've always wanted to achieve. even with the purity of our intentions, we might not always mind getting our hands dirty on the way there. and if you won't cooperate with our good cop, we will switch on you.
as an earth sign, i can see virgo wanting power but mostly for control.... to moderate. not for true glory nor a legacy but simply to 'keep things in their proper places.' but we're not as good at holding on to it like other earth signs (taurus and capricorn) coz mutables are not built for power, but mere survival and a little game every now and then.
all mutables are fake in their own way. duplicity and fraud at the core of their nature.
when you think you've figured out the trick, there is ONE MORE.
You used to say I was nice Now you tell all your friends that I'm the Antichris
Success is an illusion. Power is not sustainable. I have only encountered virgos with fire placements that fit those descriptions. They believe status will lead them to order. Recognizing your existence, sustaining your existences is not good enough. They have to be SOMEBODY.
