Is Your Personality True To Your Zodiac Sign? (Mine Sure As Hell Is!)
Every year around my birthday, I start to pay attention a little bit more to my horoscope. As a Virgo with a September 11th birthday (that's a whole other post all together), it shouldn't come as a surprise that I actually DISSECT the horoscope... Analyzing every projection made about what lies in store for me in life, love, and finances. The description of the personality traits of Virgos is always the same: we are overly analytical and total perfectionists (also known as overly critical and complete nags). Hot.
It's true. I AM a complete perfectionist. I'm the girl you want planning your party or planning your vacation. Every last detail would be thought out ad nauseum. Unfortunately, the same thoroughness and attention to detail is not, (as I'm discovering in my almost 36th year of life), so appreciated in a relationship whereby two adults, have a "conversation" that leads to a full blown "discussion" that leads to two people pissed off and annoyed. (If I wasn't clear, "the woman" in this case is the Virgo). So in said "chit chats," often times I'm not content until a situation is completely and precisely mapped out and determined.... I tend to hone in and dissect every last word until the issue at hand is resolved and clear.... which in most cases, never entirely is clear or resolved because, thanks to my active mind, I could keep going.
In fact, I could keep going right now about how I could keep going, but for the sake of this post, I'll move on.
Wait, actually, wait. I need to make one point. (Insert your laugh here). One horoscope website described Virgos as the following: "Their faults, as it is usual with all the zodiacal types, are the extremes of their virtues. Fastidious reticence and modest become old-maidishness and persnicketiness; balanced criticism becomes carping and nagging; and concern for detail becomes overspecialization." Modest and old maid-y? I think not. Persnickety... maaaaaaaybe. But more importantly, when did balanced criticism become so terrible? Or overspecialization? I mean, excuuuuuuuuuuse me. Sue me for having an opinion (and being ooooobviously correct) or trying to make an exact point.
I should have been a lawyer. Apparently normal people aren't allowed to be that annoying.
So let me make what I'm saying clear: In honor of my birthday, and my sign, and my turning 36, (thereby putting me in the category of "a grown up,") I'm going to stop beating myself up for my imperfections. It's not my fault. I blame it on the stars....
How's that for letting things go??
