Mama Lavona's Astrology for your little Virgo!

Little Virgo is very grounded and will finish anything (s)he starts. Virgos take life very seriously and are their own worst critic. It's safe to say they are perfectionists and need to be reminded that their best IS good enough. (S)he's methodical and analytical, and for this reason will be great at puzzles and games. Brainy Virgo will love books and excel in school. Virgo will enjoy trips to museums, as (s)he will enjoy looking at the museum's ORGANIZED collections. In fact, I wouldn't doubt it if most Museum curators were Virgos! Structure is very important to Virgo. When things are out of order, (s)he may fret and worry. However, (s)he doesn't like to make a fuss and might not ask for help when (s)he needs it. Preferring to do it themselves, I think it was a Virgo who first said, "If you want something done, you have to do it yourself!" Virgo also doesn't demand much affection or reassurance from others, but of all the signs, (s)he may need it the most! The best way to get a Virgo to relax is to tickle their funny bone because they really enjoy comedy and jokes!
