Moon in Virgo Karmic predispositions

If you were born with your Moon in Virgo, you bring in your subconscious mind karmic experience, related to analyzing, judging, assessing, and summarizing.

Order, discipline, cleanliness, and a good hygiene are the things that make Moon in Virgo people calm and emotionally stable.

As mentioned earlier, the Moon in Virgo doesn’t make it too easy for these people to express their feelings, and since Virgo is ruled by Mercury – a sign, related to the logical mind – Moon in Virgo people tend to rationalize their emotions and look for the logic in most of what they feel.

Everything goes through analysis. That is why the decisions that Moon in Virgo people make can be rather unemotional and do not bring emotional pleasure.

This inner pressure to analyze everything and put it into order can bring a lot of anxiety for those born with a Moon in Virgo

To a large extent, the emotional instability of those born with the Moon in Virgo lies in their great doubts about their true value and their physical attractiveness. Virgo has extremely high criteria both towards others and towards themselves.

That’s why they keep asking themselves, “What really does he/she see in me? ”

While in their early 20s this can be perceived as a charming modesty, in the later stages of life this can actually turn out to be a psychological problem that can seriously undermine their relationship with the partner.

For example, if someone tells a Moon in Virgo person that they look charming, their initial reaction is, “He doesn’t really think that.”

If someone praises them for a job well done, their first thought is, “I could have done it even better.”

Or if someone confesses their love towards them, the following thought immediately creeps into their head: “What does he really see in me?”

The Moon controls instinctive reactions. Therefore, here we are only talking about their initial reaction. After a while, they will most likely adjust their behavior according to the qualities of their Sun sign.

However, this does not mean that this initially cold and distrustful reaction has left no trace.

That is why others may perceive them as insensitive and unemotional. This, of course, is not the case.

Those born with a Moon in Virgo, like everyone else, are passionate about giving and receiving love.

Only that they are not sure how to do it. Their own criteria are extremely high and therefore they do not see their own value. If they could look at themselves objectively, through the eyes of others, they would see that they are attractive, practical, hardworking, as they really are. They would also notice their many other positive qualities that they would otherwise overlook.

There is a well-known aphorism that we cannot get enough respect from others if we do not respect ourselves
