Astrological Roadmaps for Virgo
"Nothing is more likely to to help a person overcome or endure troubles than the consciousness of having a task in life." - Viktor Frankl

Virgo, ruled by Mercury and associated with the sixth house, represents mutable earth energy. The evolutionary goal of Virgo is the development and perfection of skill and expertise which is offered to the world as service. Virgo is challenged to develop that which is most perfectable within her, to take on discipleship to hone her skills, and to be of service to others. Virgo is very much aligned with purity of intent, humility, honesty, integrity, competence, and meticulousness. Virgo has a very keen, analytical eye on details, flaws, and imperfections. Virgo is also associated with health and the healing arts.

A shadow side of Virgo is to be so caught up in seeing the imperfections in everything that she is in a constant state of criticism of self and others. Because Virgo is driven to improve herself and to perfect what she is involved in, she can become a workaholic who doesn't stop to relax or enjoy her successes. Her sense of perfection can run so high that a sense of drivenness can set in, or she can become so overwhelmed by her standards that she surrenders to defeat. Accepting her flaws and her humanness can be an important lesson for her.

If Virgo is not working positively toward self-improvement, she can project her self-criticism outward, becoming nit-picky and critical of others around her. She sees what is wrong with everything. Virgo takes in criticism very deeply, but criticism from others cannot match the self-criticism that goes on within her. Nervous energy in the form of illness, nervous habits, anxiety, and worry can overtake Virgo if meaningful skill development and self-improvement are put on hold. Sometimes Virgo is so self-effacing and self-critical that she takes jobs below her talent level or traps herself in self-sacrifice as a means of atonement for imperfection. The very highest Virgo expression lies in the impeccable development of competence in her most perfectable skill. She then offers her highest expression of self to others, and becomes her work.
