Where the Scales are concerned, they love looking at all sides of an issue and can easily "walk a mile in another man's shoes."
This kind of magnanimous outlook is a boon in relationships and makes those born under this sign a pleasure to deal with in the give and take of affairs of the heart. As befits their beautiful world, Librans love to be loved although they may initially do so from a safe distance (at least internally). Even so, in a relationship, Librans can alternate between being the dependant and dominant partner, based in part on what their sense of fair play tells them.

Above all, the diplomatic-to-a-fault Libra would rather not argue with their lover, preferring instead to talk things out in the hopes of achieving sybaritic harmony. The ideal Libra soulmate talks a great game and has the confidence (and dazzling good looks) to deliver the goods.



"Make love, not war" is a phrase which must have been coined with a Libra in mind.
Those born under this sign love to talk and find agreement with a partner as opposed to angrier alternatives.

Romance for these folks can often be a tug-of-war, with Libra letting someone get close but not too close.
Courtship where Libra is concerned is a beautiful affair, as befits someone ruled by Venus, the Goddess of Love, Beauty and Pleasure.
Hearts and flowers are a must, and Libras showered with a sea of beautiful things are likely to be most receptive to amorous entreaties.

While Libras can appear cool, calm, even aloof to a lover, they are incredibly playful and romantic once they relax. A lover who plays fair is a must for Libra.



There is no doubt that Libras enjoy being in love and the shimmery sheen which this blessed state can bring.
Love is a beautiful affair for the Scales, and as one who admires beauty in themselves and others and seeks pleasure, it's hard to imagine a better place to be.
A Libran is a stylish conquest and as such, can make the art of love a sensual state for both partners.
Librans tend to prefer a lover stronger than them, perhaps one who can teach them about themselves and help make them a more evolved lover.
It's all in keeping with the Scales' desire to appear fair and do what's best for everyone.



The partner who can encourage Libra to be honest, open, trusting and free is on the right track.
The Scales crave someone who can give them feedback and support, and affirm that they are a treasure to behold.
Wooing them with gifts can be the right stimulant.
Some long talks, along with a lesson in give-and-take, can also work wonders.
Anyone who can bring Libra to an open state, who can get them to think less and feel more, will be rewarded with a grateful and passionate lover.

The Libra lover is a harmonious soul who adores love, beauty and the romance dance.



The Sun in Libra gives you a keen and inquiring intellect. You are remarkable for your impartiality and love of justice. You constantly strive to bring order out of chaos, to bring harmony to your relations with others. You have natural charm and are well mannered. You are also a sociable person and associations with others are important to you.

There is nothing rigid about your views. You are always prepared to examine convictions which are contrary to your own. You tend, however, to procrastinate and, as a result, inaction is your characteristic personality flaw. Your capacity to dither and delay can irritate your family, friends and colleagues.

Your love of harmony extends to your surroundings. You dislike anything which is incongruous with your love of design and balance. Your home is, as a result, tastefully decorated. You have a marked artistic bent and appreciate painting, literature and music to the full. Your general lack of practical organisation, which stems from your tendency to postpone making decisions, makes you more suited to the appreciation of the artistic rather than to active participation in the particular art form which fascinates you most. You are good at bringing artistic people together and could become a patron of the arts.

Librans should do everything in moderation! One of their greatest temptations is the lure of good living. Social drinking can be a problem, as the weak point is the kidneys, particularly in middle life. You should always drink plenty of fresh cold water to help eliminate toxic wastes from your system, particularly after a heavy night out.

The Libran personality is attracted to the opposite Sun sign of Aries. The Arian capacity for quick decision making and action complements the Libran capacity to weigh everything in the balance and reach decisions slowly. The fiery Arian temperament is your direct antithesis but opposites can attract.

Libra’s love the concept of being loved, therefore are constantly searching for the perfect mate. They also love romance and consequently are good at it. Filled with personal dignity and elegance, you may find Libra to dazzle and captivate you time and time again.

They have many interests like theater, antiques, decorating, art, and themselves. A Libra’s best quality is the art of conversation. They are fantastic conversationalists. Although, when discussing any subject, you may find the conversation leading back toward their favorite topic of interest, as they put a little bit about themselves into each conversation, placing the spotlight exactly where they want it.

When out on a date with a Libra be sure to pay them a compliment. If it’s sincere, they will most definitely be charmed by you. If you pick out a restaurant, make certain the atmosphere is classy and don’t skimp on any of your plans. A Libra wants to be treated as first class and does not like to settle for less, as they feel that their pleasure is well worth it. They want a partner that has good taste and quality. As they adore luxury and love to be pampered, impression will get you everywhere, so go all out, and don’t hold back.

With an easy going nature, you will find a Libra pleasant to be around. This zodiac sign of partnership needs a companion who will understand, appreciate, and perhaps even idolize them. If you’re searching for a partner that is socially outgoing and affectionate, you’ve found them. They love to go to parties and enjoy a glittering extravagant social life. Although the Libra may be indecisive about making a commitment, once committed to a relationship, you will find harmony and peace with them.

Libra, as befits the sign of the Scales, revers balance and harmony above all.

If this can be achieved with a partner, even better, for Libra rules the House of Partnerships and revels in things that come in twos. The Scales are sociable and shine in social situations, where their gift of communication is an attraction to many. Librans also want to be liked, even loved, by those who cross their path, and it can be very hard to resist the Scales when they are at their most charming and magnetic selves. It's not unusual for Librans to possess an easy grace and sense of style and move languidly throughout a room.
Behind that pretty facade is a smart, often smoldering soul who knows how to get what they want, and would love nothing more than to do so fairly and justly. When the Scales find the partner they've been searching for, it could be a match made in hot heaven.

Libra, the seventh sign of the zodiac, is ruled by the planet Venus and symbolized by the Scales of Balance. In Roman mythology, Venus was recognized as the goddess of love and beauty. Similarly, the natives of Libra are the very personification of refinement and affection, endearing you with their genteel manner and melting your heart with their ingratiating smiles. With all the sugary sweetness of a box of chocolate Bordeaux cremes or the enchanting fragrance of a fresh-picked bouquet of daisies, the Libran personality blossoms forth, leaving proclamations of love, tokens of affection, and a host of smiles in its wake. Such may be your first impression of the indomitable Libran charm, but don't let all that sugar and spice fool you. October-born can be as quarrelsome, as irritable, as intractable as any sign in the zodiac, and then some. Sound a little confusing? It is at first, but not after you understand the subtly paradoxical nature of this Sun sign. Libra, you see, is the sign of balance, and just as a set of pharmaceutical scales will teeter back and forth before achieving a new balance, October-born will vaccinate to and fro between extremes— mental, emotional or physical— until they achieve the harmony they seek. Just tilt their scales out of balance by playing your radio too loudly or by puffing your cigarette too profusely in their direction, and these natives can turn from peace-loving doves into cantankerous crocodiles. When everything is in harmony, however, there is nothing quite like the Libran's congenial charm.

Just watch your Libran friend closely next time, and you will invariably catch his subtle balancing act. You can almost see his mental see-saw in action as he carefully surveys a situation or problem. His eyes will move back and forth, much like the inertial swing of his zodiacal symbol, as he considers the pros, the cons, the maybe's and the possibilities, all with intelligence, exacting logic, and painstaking perseverance. Don't expect him to give you the fruit of his mental efforts right away. The Libran will have to mull it over in his mind a while, making sure he has considered all the facts and that no stone has been left unturned which could affect his final analysis. When he does make a decision, however, you can probably bank on it for its correctness and integrity as a judgement based on a fair evaluation of the facts. As polar opposite of the subjective Aries, the Libran is quite capable of objective judgement, irrespective of his own tastes, mores, philosophy, or preferences. Perhaps this is why there are more judges born under Libra than under any zodiacal sign and why the Scales have come to represent our system of justice.

The Libran's sense of balance and equilibrium is no less noticeable in his physical appearance. The typical Libran physique will be very evenly proportioned, rendering a balanced bodily appearance. Even when these natives put on weight, their weight gain will occur more or less evenly over the entire body rather than in one specific area. In fact, because there are usually no exaggerated or pronounced physical characteristics, it may be hard to recognize the Libran frame at first, but the very aspect of regular bodily proportioning can be your first clue. The bodies of both sexes will be of medium height and average build, with a decided tendency to curviness, and there will be a certain litheness of movement which can only be called graceful. There may be a tendency to robustness in the females or effeminacy in the males, further exemplifying the Libran penchant for balance, even between the sexes! This is not to diminish in any way the sexuality of October-born; quite the opposite is true, but you won't find many Libran males whom you would call surly, or many of the females whom you'd say were petite. Suffice it to say there is a certain refinement in the frame and features of both sexes which can be said to express some of the qualities of the opposite sex. Despite planetary misgivings, Libran beauty is in a class by itself, and the reputation these natives have as lovers may in part be due to their ability to see in the other person some aspects of themselves while at the same time reflecting some of their partner's qualities.

If there is any one physical characteristic which is typically Libran, it is the Venusian dimple. October-born will usually have a couple in the cheeks or one in the chin. If not in the face, try looking in the knees; even the elbows can be a good hiding place for this Libran trademark. Some Librans' dimples won't show until they smile, and then these Venusian beauty marks come shining through, one on each end of the Libran's grin. And while we're on the subject of smiling, that is another telltale sign of the sons or daughters of Venus. The Libran smile can melt even the coldest of hearts, or brighten the most melancholy of moods. It beams; it projects, and transforms the Libran's face into a beacon of sunshine, making those around him feel good all over. From its warmth and sincerity to the way it crinkles up the corners of the eyes, it proliferates the irresistible Libran messages of peace, love and beauty wherever it shines.

Whoever came up with the phrase, "Better weigh your words carefully," must surely have been talking about a Libran, for October-born are forever doing just that. For one thing, the mental scales they constantly carry with them certainly make them equipped for the job, and you'll rarely see a native who isn't using them to the fullest. When in an argument, for example, the Libran will not only weigh his own words, but he'll weigh his opponent's too. He'll know just how much force to apply in his favor so as not to cause his opponent to balk and throw the whole matter out the window. In business, diplomatic relations, or in negotiating of any kind, this can be a most valuable asset, for the Libran is able to accomplish what he desires without destroying a relationship which could be valuable to him in the future. It is little wonder then, that so many public relations people, diplomats, politicians and statesman are born under this sign.

The Libran flair for tact and diplomacy is unparalleled in the zodiac, but the ease with which they pursue their argumentative techniques can sometimes make you wonder where they really stand. If you argue the need for relief to the starving throngs in Africa, your Libran friend might purposely take the opposing view, stating that giving food only perpetuates the problem, and the programs of education and agricultural reform are too long-range to provide real answers to the people's immediate needs. If, on the other hand, you were to take the position that relief should be abandoned, that same Libran friend would argue that ultimately the problem of hunger could be solved if the programs of education and reform were implemented simultaneously with immediate relief, and that work begun now could be of help to future generations. The task of sorting out the Libran's true feelings or motives can sometimes be a dizzying prospect. Too often they are accused of being wishy-washy, two-faced or without moral values, but in reality they are just trying to balance out their scales, and yours too. Nothing irritates the Libran's harmonizing intellect more than thinking which is narrow or one-dimensional. If they think your line of reasoning is too pat or simplistic, they'll purposely take the opposing view just to correct any incongruities in your thinking and to put things in a more balanced perspective. Being able to see both sides of a situation, the Libran sometimes finds it difficult to make a solid commitment one way or the other, and his stand on issues may be only temporary or serving his immediate needs. His own true feelings he may keep in abeyance, awaiting further input which could again tip his scales to the opposite view. These qualities will make him seem very much the procrastinator, and you may have a difficult time getting a unconditional opinion from him one way or the other. If a woman were to ask her Libran husband which dress she should wear to a formal function, he might reply, "Well, the red one goes well with your hair, and the blue one goes well with your eyes, but they might be too gaudy for a formal affair. The green one is subtle enough, but it might clash with my blue shirt. Come to think of it, maybe the blue one will be alright... or maybe the beige would be better." She might as well have saved her breath. True, she will have heard every possible argument for wearing each style of apparel, but by the time this son of Venus had balanced his scales over the matter, the function might be half over. Librans seem not to have so much respect for time as natives of their zodiacal predecessor, Virgo. They understand perhaps too well the meaning of being fashionably late, but unless there's a Virgo or Gemini Ascendant, their tardiness can begin to wear like last year's fashions. Sometimes their tendency to procrastinate can draw out for years what other signs could accomplish in two or three months. That room addition which has stood in different stages of incompletion for the past year or that unfinished patio are projects which may have fallen prey to a Libran's indecision, but rest assured when they are finally finished, they'll be sterling testimonials to the Venusian sense of beauty, balance and style.

'Lazy Libra' is a phrase common in astrological vernacular, but those who would ascribe laziness to October-born have never seen them in their more productive moods. Once their scales have stopped dipping to and fro, and they have committed themselves to a goal, Librans can become powerhouses, using their well-ordered intellects to accomplish in leaps and bounds tasks that might encumber other signs. Once they're motivated, they'll burn the candle at both ends, working tirelessly if necessary, to achieve their avowed goals. The trouble is that in planning any endeavor, October-born can get so lost in the endless labyrinth of strategies, factors and options which have to be weighed and evaluated by their logical minds, that they'll put off starting until it becomes old hat. A Libran in this state of procrastination can give you the best portrayal of laziness you've ever seen. He'll watch TV, yawn, stretch, and then lie down as if half-exhausted all with such convincing lassitude, it'll make you tired just watching him. He's not as idle as he looks, mind you. Though he may not be moving a muscle, his mental scales are busy weighing strategies for his next burst of activity. The Libran obsession with balancing can be as much a hindrance as it is a help to these natives, on the one hand serving as protection against impulsiveness and error, but on the other, providing an all too easy excuse to avoid getting things done. Fortunately, Librans ultimately appeal to their sense of logic, realizing that thoughts must be balanced by action, and these natives will apply themselves to their tasks, accomplishing much in spite of themselves.

When it comes to the subject of love, Librans are on home turf indeed. Loving has been second nature to these individuals ever since they could say "goo" or manage a smile. Venus herself smiles beneficently upon October-born imparting her qualities of loveliness and charm, and these individuals seem to have an instinctive knack for winning your heart. They'll know just how to woo you as the object of their affection, lavishing you with thoughtful presents, reciting exquisite lines of verse (which they've probably written themselves), or whispering sweet nothings to you in the wee hours of the morning. A few select words from the natives of Venus can be more devastating on the battleground of love than real gunpowder, and many a lover has fallen captive to their seductive charms. The recipient of Libran affection, however, can do well to be wary. For all their adeptness at love, Librans can sometimes proffer more fluff than powder, more perfume than substance, and their romancing can amount to many superficial trappings of love rather than real love itself. October-born are well aware of their adeptness as lovers, and they may find the prospect of testing their prowess on the opposite sex now and then irresistible. Although Librans seem to possess the natural equipment for loving, they have by no means cornered the market on love, which belongs to all signs.

The Sun in Virgo gives you powers of acute discrimination and insight. Your intellectual dexterity and the versatility of your personality give you the ability to do well in most fields of activity. You are careful and diligent in your undertakings and have a methodical approach to both work and further study.

The quickness of your brain is allied with a cleverness of hand. As a result, your love of practical activity leads to industriousness. Many potters are born in this sign, a profession which requires both artistic judgement and deftness of hand. Even very hard work is no obstacle for you. You find great satisfaction in dissecting orders, rejecting the useless and seizing upon the most important aspects of the task at hand. You can, however, become a fault-finder.

Your critical faculty is directed not merely towards others; you are equally exacting with yourself. You are a perfectionist. Your insistence on clean and neat surroundings can give you the reputation of being a bit too clinical in your attitude to the home. Your head rules your heart, and because you expect high standards from others, it can take you a long time to decide on a suitable life partner. You are picky, and often miss out on good opportunities because of this.

The weak physical point for the Virgo is the intestines. You can be a bit of a worrier, prone to digestive upsets through having a nervy disposition. Duodenal ulcers can be a problem, so you need to live a natural life with plenty of fresh air and fresh foods. You can suffer from allergic reactions to the additives in pre-packaged foodstuffs or the sprays used on commercially grown crops.

Those born under the sign of Virgo can begin expressing the personality traits of their opposite sign Pisces as they mature. Romantic ideals can take on more importance and the capacity to express emotions and feelings for others can become easier.

As a rule, Virgo is attracted to someone who possess good conversation skills. They love to talk and surround themselves with friends who are even-tempered, nonchalant, and intellectually stimulating. If you’re planning a date with a Virgo, try and avoid noisy places especially with lewd or obscene entertainment. The Virgo’s reserved nature and insistence of good taste, would get more pleasure from a quiet restaurant with soft music playing in the background, than from a rock and roll concert. They would prefer a place where the two of you can talk. You’ll probably find the Virgo to be very interesting and be able to discuss almost anything with them. However, don’t be in a hurry to jump right in and ask too much about their personal affairs, since they may find it to be an intrusion of privacy.

It’s a rare occurrence for a Virgo to hand out praise, so if you’re looking for constant flattery, you may want to keep looking. While on the contrary, if you’re looking for advice or an opinion on a certain matter, the Virgo will gladly participate. Virgo’s are careful planners and are constantly seeking personal achievement and financial security. They won’t put up with frivolous spending habits and won’t jump into a serious relationship without looking ahead first. Most likely they are seeking a partner with practical ambitions exactly like themselves. Once the Virgo has found someone worthy to share their life with, they will always be loyal and provide plenty of happiness. This responsible, sensitive, and intellectual person takes love very seriously. Although they may appear aloof, and distant at times, they are very sensual and warm people.
If you win them over, you will be more than rewarded with a prosperous and memorable life with them.

As the Sign of Service, one of Virgo's favorite roles is to be of help to friends and lovers. The industrious, efficient and well-organized Virgin will rarely have trouble pulling this off, and a banquet at their hands will mean an evening of delectable treats.
Ruling Planet Mercury symbolizes Communication, hence Virgos are possessed of an ability to reason clearly, resolve issues and take a romance to new heights. The Virgin can at times be shy and a bit repressed, so someone who can bring them out of these depths will be rewarded with a vibrant lover. As well, Virgos are quite intuitive and can read between the lines, so their partner need not say much to get what they want.
Concerned with health as they are, a doctor/nurse fantasy is the max for this serviceable sign!

Virgo, the sixth sign of the zodiac, is symbolized by the Virgin Maiden holding a staff of wheat. Contrary to the romantic image this might conjure in your mind, she's not holding the wheat as a peace offering, nor as a gesture of commitment to some altruistic cause. Virgos are not given to such impracticality. Their feet planted firmly on the ground, they are more concerned with the pragmatic aspects of living than with idealistic flights of fancy. In the hand of the virgin, the staff of grain is more apt to represent her childlike innocence, her purity of thought and purpose, and the simplicity of her lifestyle. The order of the universe, even to its tiniest wonder, is also represented in the stalk of grain, signifying the Virgoan inclination to perfection and attention to detail. By their symbol, you can infer the special identification these natives have with the fields of life-giving grain. Just as gentle breezes over golden grasses cause clusters of grain to sway to and fro, Virgo natives sway with the breezes of expediency around them. The wheat stalks are firmly rooted in the ground, however, signifying Virgos' ties to practical reality. Just as the wheat is resigned to its ultimate purpose as life-giving sustenance, Virgos dedicate themselves in service to others as part of their spiritual transformation.

You'd probably not call Virgos self-sacrificing, but there is a subconscious element of servitude in their personalities which never fails to come through. You'll have no trouble recognizing it in examples so obvious as maids, butlers, servants, or domestic help of all types, as these occupations will have their share of September-born, but check out the birthdays of the boss's secretary, the plumber, the gardener, or the man who retiled your kitchen floor, and you'll be surprised at how many of them are Virgos. These natives will usually have some sort of practical or technical ability, and they're not opposed to working up a little hard-earned sweat now and then. With the more intellectual of this sign, you'll find secretaries, clerks, accountants, art and literary critics, efficiency experts, scientists, doctors, researchers, statisticians, etc., all performing the many tasks or providing the services so necessary in our daily lives. In many respects, those under Virgo influence are the worker bees of society, relegated to the many areas of specialization upon which rest all business and commerce.

Physically, Virgos may exemplify many of the qualities associated with the symbol of their sign, the virgin maiden. Their features are small, regular and refined, sometimes tending to a feminine delicacy. The face is fastidious and intelligent with a pleasant accommodating air, especially around the eyes. The expression is frank and simple although there may sometimes be a look of nervous apprehension typified in a furrowing of the brow, as if the native were preoccupied in thought, or in mental review of a particular problem or analysis. The forehead is usually high, the nose thin with sometimes a tendency to flaring in the nostrils. The hair, whether light or dark, often has a mixture of shade, giving the effects of highlights or muddiness of tone, and characteristically may stand up and away from the forehead. In all respects, the Virgo countenance is one of fine distinction, combining the qualities of intellectualism, refinement and an earthy simplicity. The frames of September-born will range from small to medium, and there is a very regular proportioning to the limbs and general body structure. There may be a peculiarity to the walk, either a limp, a bounce, or a shuffling of the feet. The whole general tendency of the native, in any case, is toward reserve, refinement, and economy of movement.

It is a twist of irony that although a majority of Virgos happen to end up in occupations of service, they are often accused of selfishness. This is really quite unfair, for their seeming self-centeredness is appearance only, attributed to them for their somewhat reserved exterior. They'll be Johnny-on-the-spot when you need help doing your taxes, filling out a job or a loan application, getting your financial affairs in order, or solving a technical or work-related problem. They'll work tirelessly expecting neither compensation or praise, deriving satisfaction from the work itself and from the knowledge that they've been able to help out. Virgos, however, are not particularly giving of the heart. Owing to their rulership by Mercury, these natives can be intellectual, quite capable in aspects of mind, but sometimes lacking in matters of emotion. To some of the more flamboyant signs, this can be interpreted as coldness, but to those who can see beneath the Virgoan image of self-reserve, there is to be found a purity and genuineness of intention that is anything but unfeeling.

The Virgo native is sometimes his own undoing as far as other people's opinions of him are concerned, for as much as his intellectuality makes him capable of analysis, it also makes him apt to criticize. He'll find it hard to admire your newly-painted automobile and at the same time not point out a slight overlapping of paint or some other minute defect in workmanship. His intentions are the best; he genuinely wants to be helpful, but his timing or approach is not always appropriate to the situation, and he may naturally engender resentment from others. September-born might do better giving the result of all their analysis without further comment, but they find it hard to accept imperfection in the world and are constantly trying to right incongruities wherever they find them. Nothing escapes their perfectionist's eye. September-born will notice the tiniest water spots on your crystal glasses or that ugly coffee stain on your living room sofa, and then think nothing of casually mentioning it during the course of a conversation. When they're finished scrutinizing your belongings, they'll scrutinize you! Be sure your make-up is applied just right, or that you use your best dandruff shampoo if you wish to avoid your Virgo friend's condescending glances. In rooting out imperfection, these natives leave no stone unturned.

These perfectionists of the zodiac aren't above self criticism either. They'll always be meticulously dressed and groomed, and will exercise at least a modicum of restraint in almost every aspect of their behavior. If they happen to fall prey to a social or hygienic faux pas, they are all too painfully aware of it and will correct the oversight immediately. They won't need you pointing it out to them as they themselves might point out your faults. They are just as critical of themselves as they are of others, and perhaps even less forgiving. They are rarely liable to breeches of social etiquette; in many respects Virgos are the epitome of social grace and propriety. They have their mode of behavior almost down to a script, knowing just what to say at a particular moment or for any given set of circumstances. Their words are not usually spontaneous, but the result of careful thought and hours of mental practice in the correct ways of handling any given situation. Their mental preparedness may actually be a cover-up for shyness and their own inner fear of criticism, which is why so many of these natives can lack spontaneity. In fact, it may be said that the Virgo native has so adept a critical faculty only because he is critical of himself first. His criticism of things and people around him is testimony to his own deep-seated fears.

For all his mental prowess, the Virgo is still a child at heart. His vision of the world retains the crystal clarity of youth before it has become clouded by emotional storms. The Virgo native somehow seems to stay above the emotional complications of life's experiences by intellectually analyzing all that he sees around him, placing everything in neat little categories. Seeing things as they really are, he thus foregoes the need to view his experience through rose-colored glasses. This is quite admirable, but in practice it can sometimes lead to awkwardness in social situations. After hearing that you'd recently broken off a long-term relationship, your Virgo friend will think nothing of telling you there's more than one fish in the sea. A friend of mine who had lost a pet parakeet of eight years recently had a Virgo friend comment to her, "Why be so upset? You can always go out and buy a new one. " Their analyses may be correct enough; they'll look at the facts as they see them, but Virgos' terse appraisals can sometimes lack regard for your feelings.

Just as they are fastidious in their personal appearance, Virgos will be painfully meticulous in the appearance and management of their households. The Virgoan home will be the model of cleanliness and efficiency right down to the set of matching towels hanging perfectly neat and clean in the bathroom and the pen and notebook holder sitting handily by the telephone. You won't find dirt in the corners, under the carpets or even behind the refrigerator, nor will you find 'dust bunnies' on top of the china cabinet or under the beds. When Virgos clean, they'll start with the closets first and work their way to the center of a room instead of the other way around. They have a positive aversion to dirt, and if they're not taking their usual two or three showers a day, they'll be cleaning out the kitchen cupboards or tidying up the attic. Every once in a while you'll find one or two September-born who will have a streak of sloppiness, but check out their dresser drawers or silverware trove, and you'll find the socks and undergarments in perfectly ordered arrangement and the tableware polished in neat little stacks. Not only will their homes look like something out of Better Homes and Gardens, they'll be run with almost military efficiency. A list of 'things to buy' will grace every Virgo's kitchen wall, and meals will be served at regular times each day. When a Virgo invites you over for dinner at seven, he means seven and not five minutes after, or he'll start without you. Show up too late, and you might be just in time for dessert and coffee. Time is important to these individuals, and all their activities, not the least of which is their cleaning assignments, will conform to a very definite time schedule.

Virgos rarely suffer from ill-health and deservedly so, for they are extremely health conscious. They put so much time and effort into the pursuit of health, in fact, it is not surprising that many of them live to a ripe old age. Health food stores, health spas, and the health section of your local library or book store are favorite haunts of September-born, not to mention the chiropractor's or doctor's office for their regular health maintenance. They'll be able to relate in scientific detail all the latest theories regarding health, nutrition and diet, and they'll probably have tried them all out, too. They'll be perfectly willing to try out any new health product or nutritional theory, provided it is based on sound scientific evidence, of course. The Virgo native is too pragmatic to follow vague or questionable techniques unless they proceed from verifiable scientific premises. Their concern for health, however, can sometimes go overboard. A goodly share of hypochondriacs are born under this sign, and they'll have undying faith in modern medicine as the answer to their many ills, real or imagined. A look into any Virgo's medicine cabinet will verify this avidity. You'll find palliatives for almost any ailment from acid indigestion to headaches to ulcers. Commercials advertising different cold formulas for different kinds of coughs are definitely geared to these natives; the typical Virgo is likely to have a bottle of each, just in case.
