[ad]A reader commented on Will the Virgo man commit?
It’s the ‘finding fault with me’ that is a challenge…how can a Libra woman who appreciates balance, beauty, and brains be patient enough and strong enough to get through this? The Virgo man is kind, generous, caring, and seems to love me but he sure can get critical and grumpy sometimes!
I agree. It must be a challenge. Libra is ruled by relationship-focused Venus, whereas Virgo’s planetary ruler is mental Mercury. Venus appreciates, Mercury analyzes. They have completely different ways of experiencing the world. Mercury doesn’t care about making peace; he doesn’t even have value judgments. Perhaps that’s the key to living with his criticism: he’s not saying that you’re “bad,” just that you’re doing whatever you’re doing in a less-than-efficient manner.
Venus can get caught up in concerns about her approval rating, but Mercury doesn’t vote in popularity contests. If anything — being the trickster — he wants to upset the beauty pageant, showing it for the sham that it is.
Nonetheless, Virgo will do what he can to help you improve your chances of being crowned. He may do it by noting the rip in your hemline, or that your posture leaves something to be desired. He’s not aware that he’s hurting your feelings. The Virgo man is just trying — the only way he knows how — to help you win.
