An intelligent, friendly person with an unassuming and helpful personality—what a joy! These people are always willing to consider the other person’s position, and they usually come back with the most original and enlightened ideas for their consideration. Aquarians with Virgo rising busy themselves with whatever’s begging for improvement, be it a misunderstanding, a squeaky door, a crooked shelf, or an inefficient filing system. They’d prefer to improve the situation rather than react intolerantly to error. With Virgo’s love for what’s most productive, they’re just not as disdainful of unknowingness as other Aquarian types.
One of their most positive traits is their Virgo modesty. They’re more interested in function than impressions: They derive more satisfaction from solving a problem than from the accolades they get. They’re disarming and nonthreatening even when they’re the most stylish and popular people on the block, and they’re almost never resentful. However, with a tightly-wound Aquarius ego, and a less confident Virgo, the Worry Wart personality, these folks can be paranoid wrecks if they don’t acknowledge and manage their anxieties. They need to relax, bolster their confidence, and apply to themselves and their circumstances that reasonable, objective, analytical eye that serves them so well when they’re solving equations or troubleshooting the computer. “Worry” is reasonable only when experience indicates that a probability really exists. When there’s lightning and thunder, it’s intelligent to feel nervous about swinging a metal golf club on an open golf course—so we’re wise to refrain until the storm blows over. But worrying about being struck by lightning on a clear day is a prescription for paralysis. These people need to remind themselves that no one ever drowns in the desert. If they’ll put away unreasonable fears and superfluous worry, and keep a good, positive attitude—always an issue with Aquarius!—they’ll excel in whatever career they choose, whether they’re accountants, department store managers, computer salespeople, or doctors or nurses. Their modesty, intelligence, and cooperative team-player spirit all work together to guarantee their success.
