If your Virgo drags you to a book-signing and you flirt with the author, what reaction will you elicit in your boyfriend?
Fellow Earth sign Taurus is possessive because he thinks he owns you. Scorpio acts this way because he doesn’t trust you. But Virgo? He’s more likely to feel self-critical. “What’s wrong with me? Maybe I’m not nerd-chic enough for her, so she makes eyes at the published author. And how come I haven’t gotten it together to write a book yet? Maybe I need to work on myself more.”
In general, mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces) are so flexible that they neither cling to objects nor people. Gemini needs the variety, Sag loves their freedom, and Pisces loves the whole world! But Virgo’s a strange combination: an Earth sign that craves order, but ruled by Mercury. This mental planet lends Virgo an analytic perspective focused on pragmatic (Earth) matters.
