I know that it can be frustrating when we read about traits that we don’t personally identify with. Countless times have I gotten annoyed at sloppy astrology telling me stupid things about my own Sun sign.
BUT, but Virgo is a sign a emotional layers; traits such as ‘emotionally detached’ may not sound correct because it isn’t entirely correct. Virgo’s can look at things rather analytically, which is a great gift bestowed upon from their ruling planet Mercury (Gemini also has this quality). Virgo, like all of the astrological signs certainly does FEEL, but to what extent do you display these feelings? The answer is a variable depending on your Moon sign, Ascendant, Mercury, Mars, Venus, and aspects formed. A better way of putting it is: Virgo’s can take control of their emotions when they FEEL as though they’re in control. When a Virgo isn’t in control they can feel emotionally scattered and become a nervous frenzy.
Moving on, not every Virgo is a neat freak, but they like things their way (no matter how meticulous, organized, or scattered it may be). That in particular IS associated with this sign, but does that mean that you jump for joy in the cleaning supplies aisle in the store? Probably not. Instead, I would say Virgo’s are generally quite particular about their personal surroundings. Of course not every Virgo is this way (my younger brother is a very disorganized and seemingly sloppy Virgo. But he has very good manners and respects other people’s space and way of doing things because that is what he expects from others).
Next: Criticism. You may not feel critical of people or yourself, but that is a trait associated with the sign of Virgo. If that is a quality you do not share, then consider yourself lucky because it is a heavy trait that Virgo’s feel and sometimes it can be hard for them to truly let go of expectations and relax.
Bottom line: Not every Virgo you come across will be the same. There are many fun-loving, wild, and even crass Virgo’s out there—just as there are those at the other end of the spectrum. By carefully reading your birth chart and understanding your aspects you will be able to better navigate your own personality and learn to take Sun sign information with a grain of salt if you experience a heavy influence from other signs in your chart.

The September First Personality
September 1 people are tough, and able to handle the difficulties fate has in store for them. They tend to be pragmatic, practical yet charming, with an approach to life that is straightforward and direct. Those born on this day often have quite spectacular fantasies but demonstrate a knack for bringing such dreams down to the practical level, which can earn them a good financial return on their ideas.
September 1 people do not fool around at all when it comes to their work. They are, however, capable of listening to constructive criticism—always interested in knowing how they can do something better and open to suggestions for improvement.
Though September 1 people are mentally oriented, they also have a very physical side. Combative types, they are ready to back up their words with actions and generally do not shrink from a fight. Thus, they must be careful not to steamroll those who may be a bit too sensitive for their direct onslaughts. If in business they think up an idea or system, they won’t be happy unless they implement and maintain it as well. No matter what they create, its physical manifestation is something in which they must be personally involved.
September 1 people must learn that not everyone thinks the way they do on this subject; this difference can cause misunderstandings with love partners. Furthermore, September 1 people have to learn to be a bit less serious about their careers, and not just restrict having fun to the weekend or vacation times. Those born on this day will find that many conflicts come their way. They are survivors, but have their limitations, too. They must learn to walk away from Lady Luck’s wheel of fortune in order to avoid disaster.
STRENGTHS: Conscientious, Physical, Fearless
WEAKNESSES: Insistent, Grim, Unyielding

Virgins born on this day are ambitious and career oriented, with an intense desire for success and recognition. A born professional, you combine a meticulous eye for detail with wholehearted enthusiasm for your projects. Considerably less patient that other Virgos, you’re more likely to act now and think about it later. Your forte is coming up with innovative ideas and making them work on a commercial level. Although you’re more confident and self-motivated than many of your Sun sign counterparts, you are not nearly as certain of your own talents and abilities as you appear.
Those with birthdays on September 1 are perfectionists with clever minds and sharp tongues. Once involved in a course of action, you pursue it with total commitment. However, you do not suffer fools gladly and can be down right intolerant of anyone who is not as competent or dedicated as you. You’ve been blessed with sound business judgement and regularly pick up on things that others tend to miss. Full of good advice and well-intentioned criticism, you rarely hesitate before letting others know what you think of their efforts.
Whereas the impulsiveness of your nature can cause you to rush headlong into an intimate relationship, cautious solar Virgo makes you think twice. In love, you’re affectionate and attentive, and you show how much you care by being helpful and dependable.
