Virgo-Aquarius: similarities and differences
by Richard Pellard
English translation by Julien Rouger

The interpretation examples that we are suggesting are very far from being exhaustive: they only show and outline a general frame describing the problematics of both Signs. They should therefore not be taken literally. Each being brings indeed its own responses, more or less original, to the issues raised by a Sign. Through combining logic, observation and imagination, you will be able to develop a thousand other possible meanings, a thousand other variations on the same theme.

It’s possible that your Sun Sign is not dominant in your birth chart. One can for instance be born under the Aries Sign while the most valorized Sign is actually Taurus. In this case, it will probably be difficult for you to recognize yourself in the interpretations that are offered to you below. You will have to refer to the interpretations corresponding to your actual dominant Sign in order to relate to these. For further information, please feel free to visit our website and get a free mini-interpretation of your birth chart with our software Astrosoft.


Adapted Virgo and Aquarius


S−S+

Difference Virgo-Aquarius: Inhibition strength versus Excitation strength

S−Blocking Inhibition strength for Virgo: the reasonable. The brake is fully pulled: the protection is tight, systematized, strictly circumscribed, and gains this way a better practical efficiency. One gives up the impossible, one builds up safety margins and lifelines. One endeavours to limit oneself, to be auto-sufficient, not to let oneself being invaded by anything or anyone; one takes all the necessary precautions to be free from want.

S+Recreating Excitation strength for Aquarius: the reformer. One reacts against oblivion, disillusionment, disinterest; one refuses paralysis and renunciation: reinventing and transforming oneself, rejuvenating, being born again; renewing one’s point of view, looking at things from an unprecedented perspective, telling oneself that nothing is ever lost for good, that hope is still possible; opening up closed structures, dusting off the ways of being, thinking or feeling, etc.


Difference Virgo-Aquarius: No induction versus Positive induction

PIPositive induction for Aquarius: the full-of-hope. The eliminating Inhibition focuses onto a narrow field: one forgets the negative, the past, one banishes once and for all any dead values, any disenchantment, any incitement to pessimism. Thus immune to any germ of despair, one can build a brighter future, one can be sensitive to promises, to rising seeds, to optimistic perspectives.


Sl+Sl−

Difference Virgo-Aquarius: Excitation slowness versus Inhibition slowness

Sl+Excitation slowness for Virgo: the meticulous. The concern for mastery and organization is now total: slow, methodical, strictly hierarchized action; invisible but relentless obstinacy yielding guaranteed results through a high economy of means. Rigor, seriousness, method, patience become ideal qualities. Without commotion, one never loses track of one’s objectives. Habits are quasi-sacred rituals. Space is compartmentalized and domesticated.

Sl−Inhibition slowness for Aquarius: the visionary. The Aquarius remains open and receptive, no matter what, thanks to some monolithic, locked, immutable defence systems. He knows how to take shelter from the outside world, which he’s basing all his hopes on. An optimistic but not a fool, he reckons that his resurrection ventures will be all the more efficient that he’ll himself be stoical and steadfast in the face of adversity, not giving any ground to the others: there’s no way that his intuition of new possibilities in the making gets diverted by the ebb and flow of circumstances.


SOSP

Difference Virgo-Aquarius: Sense of opposites versus Sense of proportions

SOSense of opposites for Virgo: the purist. The Inhibition strength allows a clear perception of the boundaries between oneself and the others: one doesn’t intermingle, one is fussy, one perceives precisely the practical incompatibilities, the unchanging antagonisms. One defines uninfringable limits between oneself and the outside world, good and evil, what’s allowed and what’s forbidden, that coexist without interpenetrating: classifications, segregationism, purism. One protects one’s personal integrity against any external influence; to this end one can possibly, and deliberately, wear a mask opposed to one’s genuine nature.

SPSense of proportions for Aquarius: the inventive. The Sense of syntheses gives way to the Sense of proportions: it’s about an abstract unity that must be dissociated and concretized through choices. One is in search of original alliances and unprecedented proportions between the enthusiastic promotion of impersonal causes and the protection of individual freedom. One wants to show some solidarity while keeping one’s room for manoeuvre, one wants to counterbalance optimism with a lucidity devoid of illusions. One strikes an efficient balance between prospective imagination and rigor, between perseverance and immediate opening to novelty. One is seeking domination in the name of abstract values so as to better free the other from past servitudes.


Unadapted Virgo and Aquarius


w+w−

Difference Virgo-Aquarius: Excitation weakness versus Inhibition weakness

w+Associating Excitation weakness for Virgo: the asocial. The Associating Excitation weakness reaches its climax: no enthusiasm, no dynamism, no willingness to exchange, to communicate, to associate one’s behaviours, thoughts or emotions with others’ ones. Absolute withdrawal into oneself, into a tight internal world, into a fragmented self, shattered into pieces. Self-protection becomes quasi-masochistic through forbidding any freedom, any boldness, any surge: inferiority complexes can arise therefrom. Deprivation of affective exchanges, hermetism, impossible negotiation.

w−Recovering Inhibition weakness for Aquarius: the bottomless pit. One can’t take a break in order to cool off, to have some rest, to recover: feverish excitement, exhausting bustle. One doesn’t put down any roots, one isn’t able to use one’s natural environment for thriving, for saving one’s strength. One pushes oneself too hard: no resistance, no stability, no practical interests. Prodigality, thoughtlessness, lack of foresight, lack of animal prudence. The grasshopper from the fable, the rolling stone, the absence of solid foundation.


q−q+

Difference Virgo-Aquarius: Unadapted Inhibition quickness versus Unadapted Excitation quickness

q−Unadapted Inhibition quickness for Virgo: the phobic. Defence systems are running almost in closed circuit, in a complete vacuum: it’s a permanent fear from invasion, an endless anxiety, the absurd worry of the ostrich who doesn’t dare anymore unburying its head from the sand. Anything is an excuse for abrupt withdrawals: being afraid of germs, of thieves, of the neighbour, of the other, of oneself. This can go as far as anxiety neurosis, as neurasthenia. But the Inhibition quickness is on the verge of adaptation: there might be discreet desires disguised as fears, or a courage that tries to obscurely emerge through irony, through mockery from a wise distance, through veiled criticisms.

q+Unadapted Excitation quickness for Aquarius: the restless. With the Inhibition weakness, it’s expressed with great ease: brisk, unexpected, unpredictable reactions; rollercoaster mood swings, euphoric exaltations for no reason, inopportune improvisations, attraction for scandals, going overboard, abrupt segues, slip-ups, pathological cyclothymia; perfunctory attempts to take actions that fizzle out, constant fantasia, quick comprehension or fickle feelings that don’t leave any trace afterwards.


EP

Difference Virgo-Aquarius: Egalitarian phase versus Paradoxical phase

EPEgalitarian phase-clash of opposites for Virgo: the allergic. Why “clash of opposites”? Because diurnal and nocturnal durations are heading ever closer to equalization. An extreme sensitivity to absolute contrasts, experienced in a terrible way, follows therefrom for the unadapted Virginian: paralyzing dilemmas, irresolvable conflicts between desire and duty, what’s lawful and unlawful, the self and the other. As for the Egalitarian phase, it makes the Virginian even more systematically fearful, distrustful, anxious, whatever the attitude of his like is. Depending on the situation, this can induce a psychasthenic self-protective withdrawal, or more actively, an intolerance, an allergy to the Other, to all the others, a sectarianism: one doesn’t intermingle with anybody, not even one’s closest friends.

Paradoxical phase for Aquarius: the unrealistic. One gives much prominence to what’s positive or promising, while playing down the realities that are negative, that incite pessimism or fatalism. A mere nothing is enough to discern anything wonderful, inspiring, extraordinary, unprecedented or marvellous, where others would just see something very commonplace and usual. Thoughtless optimism, visionary imagination disconnected from practical realities; tendency to establish one’s domination over the others through the irrational, through colossal promises, puppet hopes, magic potions and miracle cures; through putting out smoke and mirrors. Mirages and pixie dust.
