Part I - Lesson 7.6

Virgo is the best sign in the zodiac for details. It is also the sign of work, So any planet placed here will tend to express itself with details. work, and service of some sort.

The Sun in Virgo: tends to shun attention. Sure there are plenty of extroverted people with Virgo Sun-Signs, but if you check their horoscopes, you will find strong placements in Leo, or the Sun at an angle. The Virgo game plan is to work quietly behind the scenes, to be the power behind the throne. Did you ever see the “Colombo” series on TV? Now there is a perfect Virgo type, solving cases by noticing tiny details. The positive side of Virgo? Always helpful. Always doing things for you. The perfect servant. The negative side?

Criticism and self-criticism too (“Oh my God. It’s an eighth of an inch off! This is terrible”! “But” you tell them “it’s a highway from the Earth to the Moon. What difference does an eighth of an inch make”? “But I made it a whole eighth of an inch off” they complain. I’m humiliated”!) Nothing is ever good enough. There are always tiny flaws. Don’t argue. The only way to stop this is to tell them “OK, discussion is over! This is what we’re going to do”. And frequently, the Virgos will do it. Like I said, the perfect servants.

The Moon in Virgo: gives an emotional need to keep busy. It can also increase the chance of guilt feelings and make a person self critical. Dustin Hoffman is a perfect example of this. Although he is a Leo Sun-Sign, which tends towards extroversion and theatrics, his Virgo Moon made him so self-critical that when Mike Nichols called to tell him he was chosen for the lead in “The Graduate”, the movie that made him a star, Hoffman tried to talk him out of it, claiming that he wasn’t right for the role!

Mercury in Virgo: is almost too strong. People with this placement seem to think that if they have proved something logically to their own satisfaction, then EVERYONE will have to agree. Of course, there tends to be great ability to handle details.

Venus in Virgo: has what I call the ledger approach to love. There is a tendency to think that if items I, 2, 3, etc. are all present, that it must add up to love. If you’re dating one of these people, be neat.

Mars in Virgo: Your energy focuses on small details. Women with this placement of Mars will either attract a very picky man or be very critical and picky themselves about any man they let into their lives.

Jupiter in Virgo: can make a lot out of a little. I know one lawyer with this placement who told me that he practically took over his class in Constitutional Law when he was in law school. This can be a good placement for business. Nevertheless, Jupiter is the planet that enables us to get the “big picture”, and Virgo is the sign of details. There will be a tendency to get bogged down in details when trying to put everything together.

Saturn in Virgo: Saturn is what we need in order to feel safe and secure. When in Virgo, this means always have something to do. If a Saturn in Virgo person wakes up and there is nothing to do, they climb the walls. They also have to have their daily quota of new details to assimilate.

Uranus in Virgo: The planet of radical changes in the sign of details can cause one’s “genius” to come out in small ways rather than with major breakthroughs. Virgo is the sign of work and health, so Uranus (or any planet) is kept busy here. People with this placement will constantly tend to look for new ways to improve their work. They will also be attracted to the very latest in health technology. This can get them into big trouble because they will tend to think that something is good because it is new.

Neptune in Virgo: happened last time during the Great Depression. The dream of that Age was just to get a job and get ahead. People born with this Neptune placement either focus their intuitions on the material world or are totally foggy in dealing with reality.

Pluto in Virgo: This happened the last time from 1956 to 1971. By contrast with the Pluto in Leo generation, which made riots on the campus, Pluto in Virgo people are more concerned with work and health, preferring to be active in the background rather than being in the spotlight. Of course, this is just one placement, and again, I must emphasize to look at the whole chart before reaching a final conclusion. Remember that Pluto stays in a sign for about 14 years at a stretch and shows the underlying traits shared by an entire generation.
