Virgo is a good sign for a woman to be, since she is organized, detailed and willing to do the "dirty work" since she works behind the scenes making the "boss" or "partner" look good. Virgo doesn't mind doing the "small stuff' because that is most often where errors happen. The Virgo child is born to a mother who wasn't happy with the money the father made, so she is very critical so the Virgo child is a very sensitive, shy child. Virgo holds in her feelings and only criticizes others because she wants to "get them before they get me." It is a protection to her gentle nature. She is a highly sensitive person who dislikes over-stimulation and needs her "down time." Her brain is always "on" and she needs to find a way to relax. She is very good at math and can make a good teacher or nurse. She gets along well with Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces. With another Virgo she can try to out-do and over-tax herself.
She can certainly have a problem with being obese, but it is NOT her nature, since it makes her "out of sorts" as she wants to do things right. Her concern is with health and fitness and she doesn't want others to criticize what she looks like. So, Virgo can certainly be at a fit weight if she WANTS to do the work. It is all up to her. She loves to show others how to live right. She can pick a man beneath her and try to "change" him, but this never works as he will resent her efforts. She often goes after the "bad boy" to show other women that SHE can get him, but she regrets it later as she wants loyalty and he will cheat. She doesn't like being made a fool of, but she can fool herself as she can be fickle. The symbol for Virgo is the Virgin, denoting the puritanical demeanor usually common to those of this sign.
