There is a frequent misconception about Virgos. For some reason, they don’t meet the criteria needed for being regarded as peers towards the other signs. Why is it so?

‘To be boring’ is not a fault: it’s an opinion arising from our idea of ‘boredom’. Our lifestyle aims to achieve a successful social position in many cases, or maybe we would like to be considered brilliant, admired, highly skilled people. Since Virgo is a sign channelling meanings of accuracy, precision, reasoning, and so on, it’s easy for us to label such qualities as ‘boring’ and unattractive.

But let’s regard the zodiac as a whole; we’ll see that Virgo – according to seasonal symbolism – is just as necessary as harvesting the crops for our survival. Virgo “separates the wheat from the chaff”, makes our food fitted for human consumption; in a word, it complements the opposite sign of Pisces – the unexpressed potential of the seed. Accordingly, Virgos are known for being practical, meticulous, logical, and single-minded in their pursuit. They are the builders of everyday life.

To deal with every aspect of the question, and do justice to Virgos, let’s try to define the point of boredom for every sign, namely how they make us bored:

  1. Aries: one-directional
  2. Taurus: materialist
  3. Gemini: lacking depth
  4. Cancer: sentimentalist
  5. Leo: self-obsessed
  6. Virgo: a fussy person
  7. Libra: self-regarding
  8. Scorpio: complicated
  9. Sagittarius: excessively visionary
  10. Capricorn: too much rational
  11. Aquarius: unintelligible
  12. Pisces: a dreamer
