Sun in Virgo — Moon in Gemini
The combination of Virgo Sun and Gemini Moon signs makes mind power your greatest strength. Quick, brilliant reasoning is the hallmark of this configuration. You are rational, capable of figuring things out analytically, and of grasping details and intricacies. Because you are so inclined to live by reason, the emotional side of your nature is not nearly so responsive. It isn’t that you’re not sympathetic or emotional, but cold logic sometimes gives that appearance. You can detect underlying motives and feeling with ease, thanks to your careful perceptions.
Your responses to what you have perceived may not be particularly emotional or sympathetic, as it is difficult for you to mix or integrate your logic and your feeling. You are a natural student with a thirst for knowledge, and you do almost equally well with definite, detailed work and abstract, philosophical thought. In a sense you may appear fickle and too changeable because of the variety of mental interests that appeal to you. Physically, you may have a tendency to "go to pot" if you don’t make a special effort to keep in shape.
You’ll never be fat as nervous energy burns the necessary calories, but your muscle tone may deteriorate, and you may grow pale and wan from lack of exercise. In your youth, active sports were important to you, but as you mature there is too much of a tendency to become sedentary. You’re inclined to take to a good book or to any number of hobbies that are passive in nature. Exercise is the best medicine for the enormous amounts of nervous energy associated with this configuration.
People do not realize just how sensitive you actually are. If you know mythology, you remember that Mercury controls communication and the intellect, and both of the signs of your mixture are ruled by Mercury. So you have a continuing need to articulate your latest, often ingenious, thoughts as well as a brilliant mind. However, frequently you use your intelligence to rationalize your troubles and feelings. You strive to keep your emotions under control so you can avoid getting hurt, because you are sensitive and vulnerable. You are cool and collected as well as reserved. There is a perception of aloofness about you.
It is not simple to stimulate your earnest feelings or bring out the passion you so cleverly hide behind your remote and intellectual exterior. Discontent and anxiety will just come about by divorcing yourself from your feelings. Openness is better for your well-being. Do not let your intelligence determine every step you take, no matter how very brilliant you may be. Let go of your cares and worries once in a while, and allow enthusiasm and feelings to show themselves. Not much gets past your very observant eye or analytical mind. You set demanding values for yourself and strive for perfection in your life and work.
You are rather direct in pointing out the flaws of others and that need to articulate your thoughts and impressions makes you do just that. Virgo-Gemini can get overcritical when faced with those who do not meet their standards. You have got to become less of a cynic and to learn to be more open-minded. If it is helpfully given, others will be grateful for your criticism, because your observations on human nature can be astonishingly accurate. Plainly put, you are not particularly romantic, but you do enjoy companionship and a person to share your ideas with. You are usually attracted to those who can give you mental stimulation and physical love.
You are more than likely working too hard to keep up with them. You are the one sitting in the front row in the classroom, taking profuse notes and asking the most relevant questions. At work, you are always on time and precise in carrying out your duties and responsibilities. You try to do the utmost of your capabilities and are dedicated and sincere, but at times you push yourself too hard. Nervous anxiety and edginess often bother the Virgo-Gemini. Do not set such unreachable standards for yourself, and attempt to relax sometimes. It is too bad, with your exceptional perception, that you generally see error before you see merit.
