I sometimes refer to an astrology book when I’m creating characters. The one I mostly use is Linda Goodman’s Sun Signs. For instance when describing the Virgo man she says he lives almost entirely on a practical, material level and couldn’t care less about storybook romance. Well, that sums up my heroes exactly.
She goes on to say they’re deeply involved with love from earliest childhood, but not the Romeo-Juliet kind. He’s too concerned with work, love of duty and discipline and devotion to the helpless.
They also tend to seek quality in a romance rather than quantity. Therefore they have very few real love affairs and the ones they do have are more often than not destined to be unlucky or sad in some way.
But he can, when he wants to be, a master of the art of subtle seduction, even though he takes his time finding a woman to love.
Sounds like one of my heroes!
So how about the Virgo woman? Basically shy, but she also has a determination to pursue happiness where her path takes her. She’s interested only in pure love, and is the only woman in the zodiac who can be deadly practical and divinely romantic at the same time.
They are also perfectionists, believing no one can do things as orderly and efficiently as they can. She has a mental block when it comes to admitting she’s wrong – so the smart thing would be to take the blame straight away. Most of the time she’ll be right so why fight it? When she’s back into her normal mood, she’s such an exquisite delight, you won’t care who won or lost.
