The 11 Zodiacs pondered. How best to catch Virgo’s heart? Aries headed east.
Taurus had an idea. He would give Virgo a gift. Through the forest and over the mountain, he found a star.
Gemini thought by the river, ‘I will sing her a song.’ He didn’t know where she was, but he hoped his song would reach her.
Cancer headed to the cape where Virgo waited. The sun was setting into the ocean. Would he finally see her?
Leo was waiting for the sun to set into the ocean. Then Cancer showed up, and they began to fight. Into the ocean they fell…
Watching the sunset from the cape, Virgo whispered, ‘My only wish is to be with you now…’
Libra was a perverse fellow. He would always walk in the opposite direction of the sun. Would he ever see Virgo?
Scorpio was very timid. He always looked at his shadow until one day he decided to look away. He walked up a hill.
Sagittarius dashed through the night, defying the chilly northern wind that was stinging his right cheek.
Impatient Capricorn ran up a hill toward the sun and fell asleep from exhaustion.
Aquarius arrived late. He asked everyone, ‘Who kissed Virgo?’
Pisces said to Aquarius, ‘Virgo made her choice. Go see him and he’ll tell you the rest.’
Their future was uncertain, but Scorpio and Virgo kissed in the light of dusk. That moment meant everything.
Emotions boil while you present a “leave me alone—I’m fine” exterior. You never forget a former friend’s disloyalty, and idols fall from grace because of dishonesty or cowardice, or another’s lack of appreciation of the generous things you’ve done.
You keep score.
Yes, you have principles that sometimes transform you into a hermit living in a controlled environment, i.e., dominated by rules, high standards, and an almost obsessive fascination with more heroic, more romantic eras. You feel you were born too late or too soon, mostly too late. Even when you have a companion, you harbor deep secrets that are never fully explained.
Sexual innuendos and back-stabbing gossip about you being some sort of power-grabbing control freak start early, like as soon as you’re strapped into your car seat, and continue relentlessly throughout life.
The truth is that you have remarkable willpower. Without it, you might be as mediocre as most of the uninspired dweebs surrounding you. But with your formidable willpower, you overcome incredible odds, such as surviving an abusive or addictive home life or some other shocking family tragedy.
Many of you fully recover and become the first person in your family to get a real education (that you paid for, of course) or become a sports or entertainment superstar against all odds. You’re allergic to failure and refuse to be average. Actually, being average is a failure as far as you’re concerned.
People who underestimate you are slow learners. Patience, always a challenge, is something you cultivate throughout life, like a venomous viper looking for a meal. Memories stay with you forever. This creates a very crowded consciousness.
Sometimes in desperation for relief, escape and most of all, oblivion, you drink or drug excessively. Yes, the world is often too much for you, complete with loss, heartache, and a deep desire for someone or something just out of reach.
