SIGNS & HEALTH
Virgo, is the sixth zodiac sign.It is denoted by the Virgin.The planet Mercury is the governing sign.It governs our intellect and communicative ability whereas tradition also places an important role in life.So, Virgo's have a truly intellectual, critical and analytical approach towards life. Communication is an important aspect of life and they love reading books, magazines, and writing. They have a critical eye for details, combined with a ceaseless pursuit of perfection.This endows Virgo's with an irresistible urge to improve in everything and everyone (whether they need it or not).
The key phrase of Virgo is "I analyze". Virgos adapt to change instinctively and are responsive to the needs of others. They usually adapt to different people,places and changing circumstances by finding their own ways to make themselves useful. They are known to be meticulous and in their best form they are efficient and perform duties very well. Their world is subject to microscopic analysis and they become engrossed in trivialities leading to worry and ill-health. Virgo bodies usually reject artificial medicines and foods.They prefer natural food. Food in general is harmful to them when upset or angry.
Normally, Virgo's are health conscious and they make their own efforts to stay physically fit, becoming a choosy eater, if not a food-faddist. Many of them adapt to routine exercise or other activities. This sign has an unique resistance to disease .and once the mind is disciplined by becoming dispassionate in evaluating the performance of others as well as themselves.But at times foolish fears and apprehensions soon lead them into early invalidism. They are also susceptible to suggestion, especially in health matters and should choose their doctor carefully.
