‘Strong, Fiercely Independent Perfectionist’ – Do I Match My Star Sign?

virgo star sign

Ever since I was a little girl, I have always found my horoscope and star sign to be scarily accurate – I often avoid reading it on the basis that it spooks me out when it reflects my life so perfectly! Inspired entirely by Alice’s post, I decided to use the same website as her, ‘BuildingBeautifulSouls‘, to delve entirely into that which scares me just in time for spooky season to begin..

I was born on the 3rd of September, which makes my star sign ‘Virgo’! While scrolling through the site, there were a number of things that stood out to me – both elements of my personality that have been pointed out to me by others, as well as elements that I have noticed within myself..

‘Virgo’s have a knack for details – most of the time you will have to admit she’s right’..

As a child, I always had an eye for the smallest of details – I was constantly interested in learning something new, always had my head in a book, and wanted to know absolutely everything, about it all! If we ever got lost while out driving as a child, my mother would always ask if I knew which direction to go or whether we’d already been through that part of town – I always had my eyes peeled and took in every, single detail..

‘You hate messes! Organisation is your middle name’..

I absolutely love being organised – I always have everything that I may possibly need and as a result, my handbag often has my entire life in it! Mentally, I have to make plans, have everything set in place, and ensure that those plans are stuck to, for fear of the entire world coming to an end or something dramatic like that..

‘You want the entire explanation behind everything, complete with footnotes’..

This fits perfectly with my ‘knack for details’! I love to know why things work, how things are done, why they are done a certain way – I often enjoy getting involved myself, and making suggestions to help improve if there are any issues that I spot, even if my help isn’t wanted – after all, I am always right!

‘You have a sense of realism, used in making wise decisions’..

I have always thought about the whole, ‘glass half empty, glass half full’ question – optimist or pessimist? I only recently realised that neither fitted, that every situation had to be judged on its own facts, and that it was possible to be both, but also neither at the same time! I often find myself taking a mature stance, weighing up situations, such as the relationship between myself and my dad, and would definitely describe myself as a realist..

‘You trust your head, more than your heart’..

I would love, love, love to be someone who listened constantly to their heart! I would love to be spontaneous, and mysterious, and unplanned, but I just can’t – not without a panic attack, and the constant fear of something going awfully wrong! Instead, I am forced to listen to my head, to make plans in advance, to make conscious decisions that are well thought out..

While these were just a few of the personality traits picked out, the entire description of my star sign matched me eerily well – I genuinely think it described me better than even my boyfriend could! I find reading around my star sign really interesting, if a little spooky, and could definitely see myself as being more spiritual..

What’s your star sign, and does it match you? 

  • I love this! It’s strange how close they can match you. I just read a bit of mine and it say about career path and it literally was me, it’s crazyyyyy! xx

  • Louise ⛄️

    This is such an interesting post! I love reading stuff like this. Mine is honestly nothing like me at all haha.

  • 💀Alice

    I’m a bit skeptical about star signs as I think how can you supposedly determine someones personality traits because of what time of year they were born if you get me? But it’s pretty cool that so much of yours is so similar to you! Although I’m a Gemini, as is my mum and they say they come in terrible twos!

  • I’m not sure about star signs but all the traits you’ve listed apply to me and I’m an Aquarius – my husband calls me Monica sometimes 🙂 I’ll have to head over to the website you mention and see what they say about Aquarians, you’ve piqued my curiosity! X

    I’m Pices and I am so scared of my horroscope being so accurate that I have stopped reading them online and in magazines!! I don’t want to know about bad things, such a scardy cat!! xx

  • This is an interesting post. I never really paid much attention to my sign or horoscopes.

    Most of my life I used to follow my heart! Now that I live away from my family I think I’m more of a 50% heart and 50% head. It’s funny how it can change. I also love making plans for everything. I basically don’t leave my house until I know what I’m doing step by step haha great post!

    I love this post! Some of these points for a Virgo actually remind me of myself! Definitely when it comes to organisation. I’m all about that.

    Hi, great post interesting to read your similarities to your zodiac sign. I have never thought of doing this but after reading your post I think that I may just do the same.

  • alwaysopinionated

    I’ve never really put much thought into my star sign or horoscope – I think I’m a Capricorn though. It’s really interesting to hear about your experience – you certainly sound very similar to your star sign!

  • My star sign is cancer but I never put much thoughts in it. I never read my horoscope so I would not be able to say if we match or not xx corinne

  • Sophie Wentworth

    I’ve never believed too strongly in star signs. I’m a cancer and I can’t relate much at all but some of my friends believe them too be 100% accurate. I guess I’m the odd one out.


  • I’m Aquarius but I’ve never really put much thought into anything like this, but I know a lot of my friends religiously check daily horoscopes and things like that! X

  • So I was intrigued to what mine says and it said (Cancer).. ‘take great pleasure in the comforts of home and family’ which is so so true, sometimes I read magazines and they get it spot on aha!

  • Yay I’m so glad I inspired you to do this post! It’s so interesting to read about, isn’t it?! Yours seems to be pretty accurate to you, mine was very up and down haha x

    You both have made me so interested in my horoscope again! I’m going to have to check this out now!

  • Chessie ✨

    Loved this post, I’m a cancer and it’s scarily accurate especially my love of ‘comfort food’!😂

    I’m a Virgo too! It’s true I hate mess and d try to be organised! Loved reading your post xx

  • Emma

    I’m a Gemini but I’ve never really read into what may star sign traits are, might have to look into it more 💕

  • Oooh I’m so intrigued to check out the website you’ve mentioned to see if I fit with my star sign too! I’m a Taurus as I was born at the start of May! Like you I’m also an organisation freak, nothing gives me greater pleasure than feeling like I’ve got everything planned out, so maybe this is something that Virgos and Taurians have in common! 😉

  • Hmm this is interesting, I used to be quite interested in star signs but lately they’ve fallen off my radar. It’s so cool that you matched the traits so well! I’m a Piscean.

  • Ohh I love a star sign post! This is so interesting I may look into my own start sign xxx

  • I love this post! I’m a Cancer and I think that it matches me quite perfectly! My mom is a Virgo as well and all these traits definitely sound like her :)x
