Although Virgo is associated with the symbol of the virgin, by no means does this insinuate that all Virgos are sexually repressed, inexperienced, or prudish. The Virgin is not a literal symbol.
Virgo represents purity, completion, wholeness, & at its worst, perfection. If you are familiar with this sign, you may have noticed that some people with significant Virgo placements have a tendency to leave no detail unnoticed & nitpick at every flaw they can find. When we connect this behavior to the virgin, this means that Virgo’s origin desire is to surround themself with all that is untainted – not “flawed,” but more so avoiding anything that makes them feel incomplete.
In karmic astrology, it can be interpreted that Virgo comes into this world as a fractured soul to set the backdrop of their soul purpose: finding complex & detailed solutions for the human race, especially in areas where others lack the fine-tuned analytical skills that Virgo possesses.
Virgo sees the world as an unfinished puzzle, & it brings them a feeling of completion & a sense of purpose when they can provide the missing pieces. However, if Virgo loses their feelings of self-accomplishment, they may struggle with regaining a sense of control by unknowingly resorting to fixing the people around them. This shadow side of Virgo results in toxic perfectionism, severe anxiety, impulse control issues, & issuing unsolicited advice that may come off as offensive.
How does this behavior manifest inV one’s sex life? Virgo feels most connected to the world & those around them when they can be of service to others. In some ways, Virgo can feel as if they must play the role of heavy-lifting nurturer in their relationship – from actual labor to even emotional labor – in order to feel more whole. Sometimes this may cause them distress if they aren’t getting acknowledgment every so often.
You don’t need to be a Virgo sun, moon, or rising in order to resonate with this. This behavior may sneak into your chart in your 1st, 6th, 8th, or 12th house & even through your Mercury & Chiron placements. In what parts of your life do you feel you have this energy?
