Moon in Virgo

THE BRIGHT SIDE OF THE MOON:

You are intellectual, meticulous, industrious, steadfast, responsible.

THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON:

You are critical, high strung, standoffish, argumentative, hypochondriac

Lunar Virgos find security in the little things in life. You feel most content when you’ve straightened out all the details of everyday life. Many of you enjoy running errands, paying bills, and balancing the books. You take care of these things happily, although some won’t let on. In fact, many of you are quite practiced at nagging and complaining. As long as you are appreciated, however, you will help others take care of their life, too. You are at your best when you feel useful and needed. If somebody needs help, you are generally the first to jump up and take on the task.

Some people with Virgo Moons are accused of being underachievers. While it may be true that Lunar Virgos can lack self-confidence, many of you are–quite simply–content with living “regular”, unassuming lives. You appreciate simplicity, and are often most comfortable when you’re not getting too much attention from the world at large. You  are easily overwhelmed by pressure and stress. You  worry incessantly when there is too much to think about; and you know your limits.

Arguably the worst position for a Lunar Virgo is without a steady routine or a simply satisfying job. You need to feel useful, and you best express this by helping others in little ways. You need something to call their own, and the space to do what they want to do. The unhappy Lunar Virgos are fussy and complaining sorts. You are victims of routine and freak out when your plans are not followed. You are restless and nervous, and can’t seem to see the big picture. Probably the best remedy for you is a job or hobby in which they can express their deep need to analyze, attend to details, and micromanage.

You  express your affection for the people you care about in little, but practical, ways. You can be a little stiff when it comes to open, gushy displays of affection. Lunar Virgos are often shy with new people. However, when you are comfortable, you  are anything but shy. More often than not, others can count on you. You are reliable and trustworthy. Above all else, you are practical. Others turn to you for help and advice. In relationships, you can be self-effacing and kind. Some of you are quite shy in love, and easily intimidated on a sexual level. Many of you are not very comfortable with their sexuality, but you aim to please nonetheless. The sign of Virgo is very body-aware, in general. If this awareness combines with a lack of self-confidence, you can be too aware of the parts that make up the whole. This can lead to a tendency to be intensely self-critical. Once you  learn to come out of their shell, however, you can be earthy partners with a lot to give.

Some of the most skeptical people are Lunar Virgos. You can’t help but poke holes when faced with others’ blind faith. Your criticism can be maddening, and your insistence on seeing the practical in anything emotional can be challenging, especially if for people who are the dreamy type.

Virgo curiosity shows up big time with this position of the Moon. To some, it can be confusing. You seem very interested in others’ problems, for example, but can be quite cool and even unsympathetic in the long run. Your advice can seem hard to more sensitive folk; yet you can be surprisingly delicate when faced with others’ criticism. You  are generally busy and quietly happy when you have your lives under control. You aim for a simple existence, and are often quite content with very little. Many of you are early risers, ready to take on the day with enthusiasm. You scurry around, keeping busy and managing your life quietly and expertly.

IN PAST LIVES

Past lives spent in positions ministering to others, healing them, taking care of their needs, and helping to put them back together have resulted in a gentle humility and desire to serve. From lifetimes spent as artisans, craftspeople, and physical healers, you have become concerned with the details of perfection in your work. Possibly you were a nun, nurse or a doctor. Possibly you feel separated from others from an inflated sense of rightness that is actually part of a past life egotism. Thus, in this life you have a tendency to feel that all aspects of your behavior and performance must be perfect before they can be allowed to be expressed. This attitude can interfere with the flow of your charitable deeds. You are learning to express whatever helpful detail you have at the moment, without having to see the whole picture. You are learning to have trust that the universe is unfolding perfectly.
