Virgo - The Fussy Fixer
Wants to be Helpful.
Virgo characteristics are analytical, neatness and possession of a very active mind. Has a reputation of being a critic, this is thanks to the keen sense of observation and your quick ability to point out differences in other people. Other people might think you are being really picky, which you are but they don't see your underlying desire to help others. By mentioning another person's faults, you are only trying to make them aware and you are rarely thanks for this! After you have mastered and perfected a skill, you want to share it with everyone else. You want to help others and show them the right way and many people see you as bossy because of this. You are being selfless and other people think you are either showing off or criticizing them. This is the root cause of Virgo's reputation for being overly critical. It's not your fault you are quick witted, clever, highly observant with an oddly dry sense of humor, quite an interesting person!
The most probable reason of your undeserved reputation is because you are not very emotional. You are actually quite emotionally cold and detached because you think in your mind, you do not feel. You believe that feeling clouds the mind and holds you back from being able to properly solve problems, which is very true, you are able to get things done better and easier then those of the highly emotional zodiac signs like Pisces and Cancer for example.

You will wait an eternity for something you want.
Observant and Particular.
Your keen eye for detail can be a good thing or a bad thing. You see the smallest detail and it means big to you, you won't overlook it or forget about it. Small things matter big to you and this causes you to be really fussy, but this is ingrained in your everyday need to perfect everything. This can hold you back especially if you have deadlines and time lines to follow, you will easily get stuck on a tiny detail that really won't affect the outcome. You have an eternal lesson to look into the future and use your analytical powers to analyze if this small insignificant detail will really affect the out come, chances are it won't so you have to learn to move on, not every detail needs to be perfect.

You have to stop trying to perfect people, just because you think they are doing something wrong does not mean that they are unhappy with the way they are, people have the ability to fix their own problems and if someone wants your advice, they will ask you. Do not be so intrusive into the lives of others unless they ask you first. Remember that you are not an emotional creature and have very little softness when it comes to your criticisms. Also, you need to understand that even though you are not changeable in your opinions and thoughts, other people are. Do not disregard others as liars or confused because many other people change on a daily basis. A huge life lesson for you is to understand that not everyone is similar to you, we are all different and you have to learn not to be so nit picky and accept other people and stop questioning everyone's motives and putting people under a microscope. These fine details of your personality is what makes you unique. If you are aware of your personal 'shortcomings' in the eyes of others, your life might flow more smooth because you understand what is going on with your interactions with other people, you are very complex and hopefully now, you have pinned yourself down a little and know the reasons of why you do what you do.
