There really is.
I have always been somewhat dubious about the whole Zodiac determining personality thingy. Supposedly the position of the sun in relation to the earth as you are squeezed from your mother's loins defines whether you are outgoing or prefer your own company.... You can see why people have trouble with this concept, right?
I don't really have a clue what being a "Leo" means except that I am supposed to be outgoing and attention-seeking, and stubborn. Check to the stubborn. Outgoing - maybe not. Attention seeking is a difficult one because although I am really shy I think deep down I crave attention, but when I get it I don't know what to do with it and it embarrasses me so I run away from it.
A confused Leo is what I am. It's all a bit blah blah to me.
I have no ability to recognise people by their personalities. Scorpios and Aquariuses and Cancers - I have no idea who is who in the zoo.
Except for you Virgos. I have noticed that there are quite a few of you out there in blogland. In fact I seem to read more Virgo blogs than any other type.
You Virgos are all instantly recognisable to me. It is uncanny. You are all individuals of course, but something about you is exactly the same. Even if I have met you only through your writing, you are just unmistakeably Virgoese.
You Virgos are all very intense. Shoowee but you are intense. And I think I give the impression of being intense to people. As a result I seem to attract Virgos in droves, possibly seeking out someone who they think will get them.
The thing is, I am intense, but I am intense for a fuzzy cuddly kitty cat. I just cannot match up to the intensity of a Virgo.
Also, Virgos take things (including themselves) seriously, and my ragging and poking lightheartedness is often taken the wrong way. And as a result there is a certain pattern to my relationships with Virgos.
All of them have been difficult. It is tempting for me to say it is because Virgos are difficult, but it could be that the common denominator here is actually me (couldn't be!) so it is better if I say the relationship as a whole is difficult. By difficult I mean hard work.
Some of my most intense, rewarding and best friendships have been with Virgos, but boy were they hard work. And worth it.
There are many other Virgos with whom I have non-starter relationships. We know each other, we like each other, but we just struggle and struggle to connect. It is like we just keep trying to touch hands and missing. It is weird. We tend to get frustrated with each other and so I can never become close friends with this subgroup.
There are some Virgos I choose not to be friends with because I can feel that we will not hit it off at all, and both of us would probably get badly hurt in the process. I think they feel it too and we mutually choose to remain acquaintances.
And then there are the Virgos with whom I have had fierce, mutually abusive relationships. Some of these also fall into the category of close friendships. I think that when a Virgo discovers that my intensity does not run as deep as theirs, sparks start to fly. I just can't match your bottomless depths dudes, I am wired to loll in the sun and eat raw steaks, mkay?
I read in some suspect description of relationships that Leos have something to teach Cancers, and something to learn from Virgos. That sounds incredibly lame. But if it is true, then I have a feeling that whatever it is that you are trying to teach me, Virgos, I am NOT GETTING IT!
Could you be a little more direct? Try spelling it out? This furry feline is no good at mind games.
What am I missing here?
I think that whether this Zodiac shizzle is real or not, I am fated to have many Virgos in my life. One thing I have learned from you is that if you work hard at a relationship, it can be most worthwhile.
But if you just aren't connecting with someone, it is nobody's fault (blame it on the sun) and there is no need to waste energy on it.
Oh yeah, and there is no such thing as a "light friendship" with a Virgo.
Does anyone else have this weird thing with Virgos? Or any other star sign? Is there a particular sign that just stands out to you?
