Yes, I used a Harry Potter quote for my title. I’m a Potterhead through and through. Always. Just saying. I’ll write about it sometime.

Today’s Discussion Topic: What is your zodiac sign and does it fit your personality?

I was born on September 12, which makes me a Virgo. This is actually about all I knew regarding my zodiac besides that Virgo is the sign of the virgin. I had to look up what a Virgo’s personality was supposed to be like in order to write the rest of this blog post.

One of the first things I saw is that Virgo’s element is earth. My first impression was that this does not fit my personality because I am a water person. I was a swim instructor/lifeguardĀ for 5 years and while I don’t miss the lifeguarding part so much, I miss being in the water. I love being in the water.

The next thing I saw that were some keywords used to describe Virgo’s: helpful, reliable, analytical, inflexible and interfering. I don’t know about analytical, but I feel like the rest of those words apply to me.

And then I found this: “Virgo exists in the mind, everything is inside. To the world, Virgo presents a calm and collected exterior, but on the inside, nervous uncontrolled intensity in the mind, trying to figure things out, how to improve everything, analyzing and thinking. Virgo can tire itself out without even moving! Virgo has a constant drive to improve and perfect, this can lead to extreme pickiness and finickiest. They are pure, their motives are honest, never malicious and they want to accomplish something.” (http://zodiac-signs-astrology.com/zodiac-signs/virgo.htm)

Omigod, this is me. I am a perfectionist in almost everything. This is probably why most of my blog posts come out so late. I can’t let them go until they are perfect.

There are parts of Virgo that do not fit my personality: I’m not particularly observant, I look at my problems emotionally and I do my best to be open-minded. However, there is a lot of things that are characteristics of a Virgo that match almost perfectly with my personality. Hmm I guess you do learn something every day.
