Being a Virgo
The bright side of Virgo - Astrology of Perfectness
One of the great advantages of being a Virgo (by Sun sign) is that it allows you to improve oneself's life and surroundings up to the perfection.
I'll give you my latest discovery: while playing with the amazing software made by Google and titled Google Earth I discovered that it allowed me to see houses and buildings from satellite images. It got really interesting when I noticed that it also allowed me to find out the exact longitude and latitude for my home or for the hospital where I was born, which is slightly different (by several arc minutes) from the center of the city, which although may look as an insignificant difference, it may be at times important, when it comes to horary or electional astrology.
I live in a small town (150,000 inhabitants) and the differences are still small, but if you're a big city fellow it might get you in trouble. So everybody hurry and grab Google Earth in order to find out your exact coordinates.
By the way, I'll always remember John Frawley's words on Virgos and electional astrology, from a transcript of a conference he gave in Serbia, in 2003: "One golden rule of electional astrology is: Don`t try it if you are a Virgo! In fact, don`t try doing anything if you are a Virgo. Whatever it is, it`s going to be far too complicated.
We do have to look at a large number of variables when electing a chart. And so we do need to think very broadly, a big picture-style of what we are doing. The great danger of doing elections is to start looking at the detailed stuff very early on. And, then you just tie your brain in knots. Even, if you were not Virgo when you started, you`ll end up as one afterwards. This is how people become Virgos - they are not really born that way, but become so when they try electing charts."
A fact is that I love electional astrology and use it as often as possible. This is how I became a Virgo, I suppose.
