Virgo Rising - Rising Signs

Virgo Rising guys and gals smell like soap, are always on time and are generally sincere. 

Rising Signs have to do with the way we engage with the world, and the impression we make. 

Virgo is the sign of thoughtful action, being an earth sign ruled by thinking planet Mercury.  A Virgo Rising person makes their way carefully, and is often squeaky clean. 

Everyday Virgo

The Virgo rising gives a personality that's purposeful and trustworthy.

You tend to be matter-of-fact and sometimes come off as cold to new people. You like to stay productive, and make the most of your day.

You're always looking for ways to improve yourself, especially your health. Your focus on fixing things can make you seem negative. You may struggle with insecurity and self-criticism, if you are blind to what's going well.

Don't fall into the trap of constantly flogging yourself for this or that! 

You can be quiet and lose yourself in the rhythm of work. When you've got job satisfaction, it's easier for you to relax into the day. It's important to have outlets for nervous body tension, and to take your routine seriously.

Digesting the Day

You suffer more than most when your balance is upset, which is why you're resistant to major changes.  You may be triggered by change, and will want to watch that -- many Virgo types are nervous and this can affect digestion.

You come across as sincere and capable, and will shine when you know your efforts are appreciated. You have an instinct for doing what's right and fair. Others rely on you for a true, unfiltered account of what's going on, though you may miss the emotional nuances.

Your practical outlook helps you stay grounded in a crisis, as you focus on the small steps that need to be done.

You may enjoy work that involves refining or tending to the details, like editing, art restoration or physical therapy.

Your gift is understanding the whole, and how the parts fit together.  That's why you're genius at systems, and any work related to refining a system.
