Feeling misunderstood seems to be a Virgoan character trait that comes with the territory, even for those who are unaware of how it's regarded in astrology.
I’m obsessed with it cos my birth chart is full of earth & water signs....I’m also very young and I love to learn more about what attracts the males haha, I’m still a naughty little girl that needs to keep her mind going with the beauty of life ��
Generally we Cancers , Virgos & Pisces most times feel incredibly misunderstood which is why we become fussy and have emotional outbursts
Are you interested in attracting "males" in a generic way? Or finding that special someone?
Women who strongly attract males in a general way can actually have real problems. A friend of mine was attractive enough, but not truly gorgeous. She was a professional woman who dressed modestly. She certainly didn't flirt with a lot of men. Yet men were always hitting on her. Most of this attention was really unwelcome. Like a stranger soliciting her for sex in a hotel elevator. I never saw her horoscope but wonder if she had a first house Venus. So just please be careful what you wish for!
Really, attraction between two people goes by synastry. (Chart comparison, which goes by degrees, not sun-signs.) I look for trined or sextiled suns; moons conjunct, trined or sextiled; and "reverse" Mars-Venus inter-aspects (plus a few more) to judge compatibility.
I used to work in a mostly-male field. At times I was the only woman or one of two women in my department. In my experience, not every single man wants an ultra-feminine girly girlfriend. He certainly doesn't want the village flirt. If he's an outdoorsman himself, he might rather have someone with whom he can go rock-climbing or sailboat racing. Which is to say, if a man has a passion in life, like his profession or a leisure activity, he might rather find someone with whom he can share it; not an ultra-feminine goddess with whom he has few interests in common.
With your Cancer sun you might find someone attracted to your care-giving and nurturing personality. The danger is, that you may attract Peter Pan types who look for a motherly care-taker. Or you may be secretly looking for a surrogate Daddy who will allow you to be dependent, while he assumes the adult care-giving role.
Please don't read this as my being anti-Cancer. I'm not. Just that every sign has its romantic strengths and weaknesses. We all need to be aware of them.
Best wishes for your journey, W.
Cancer and Pisces are water signs. The water element symbolizes emotions. And on occasion, spirituality.
(You probably know this:
Do you want to spread the femininity doctrine to my Virgo son? He was on the "A" rugby team at university, and now wears a beard.
I just googled "men with Virgo rising."
I didn't get through the list, but this article was so pathetically bad that I had to share it.
(or, why you don't want to learn astrology from Cosmopolitan.)
Im loving the responses
Yet I don't read any consideration of change of mentality in your replies regarding your personal views. You must surely have come across them. Do you sweep alternative thoughts under the carpet because they disagree with your personal perceptions?
In 'old' astrology, from 1st sign Aries, uneven signs were called 'masculine' and active of nature, and even signs were 'feminine' and passive of nature. 'Even' signs have nothing to do with femininity in the sense to which I believe you are referring.
I am a Virgo rising with Merury, Venus, Mars, Uranus, and Chiron-Lilith all aspecting it. For years I had an allotment upon which I grew home grown produce. Being at the front of the complex I had daily chats with those walking their dogs. I was always in my 'gardening togs' doing all sorts of 'manly' things, nothing considered feminine about me at all. An occasion arrived when dressed in female attire with neat hair-do, I ran into one of the males who walked his dogs daily. I have never forgotten the open-mouthed look on his face when he recognised me!!
I've never felt more 'feminine'.
Virgo is associated with one aspect of femininity by mythology, the virginal maiden part, but there are at least three female archetypes (maiden, mother, and crone). And that's if you're looking at things through an ancient, rather limited lens.
The thing most Virgo suns I know have in common in my experience is a busy mind. They tend to be delightfully neurotic but also high functioning, the type to worry over every detail. I definitely feel the Mercury connection as a Gemini sun, but I think in general I give fewer sh*ts than they do.
Yes you’re right and they can be indecisive too
I'm thinking of two Virgo suns I know very well. The younger one really struggles with decisions. The older one is better at them, but yes, they both worry about making the right move. They're very hard on themselves if they make a mistake.
One might alternately wonder, why on earth might you not change your view?
No one is trying to force you to change your view.
But if your view doesn't shift and adapt based on examples counter to your thesis or idea, then I wonder what would cause it to change? Or does it just not change...?
Another Virgo rising who is not particularly feminine,
