Which Zodiac Signs Suffer from Low Self-esteem? Does Virgo Suffer from Low Self-esteem?
While there is more to a person’s astrology than their Sun sign; we can use simple Sun sign astrology to take a guess as to whether Virgo folk have low self-esteem. Does the fact that Virgo is a perfectionist mean that they continually undermine themselves? Does perfectionism equal low self-esteem?
Most people would assume that Virgo continually judges themselves against a perfected version of themselves and always feels that they have fallen short. For some Virgos that may be the case though for other Virgos the fact that they feel themselves worthy of perfecting (and having the potential to be perfect) would indicate someone who has a healthy dose of self-esteem. The fact that Virgo devotes time and energy to maintaining good health indicates that they value themselves enough not to just give up. The Virgo dedication to maintaining an orderly, clean environment along with their devotion to personal hygiene indicates a person who values themselves more highly than one might think. For many Virgos the dedication to perfection is a sign of high self-esteem. ‘I strive for perfection because I’m worth the effort’, thinks Virgo.
For many Virgos the only opinion that really matters ultimately is their own. Sure, they don’t want to be embarrassed or ridiculed nor do they want to draw attention to themselves for the wrong reasons. They do (like the rest of us) like to be thanked, congratulated and appreciated but that’s as far as the need for ego stroking by other folks goes as far as Virgo is concerned. Virgo is the sign most comfortable with celibacy and solitude so is unlikely to need the constant reassurance from others that often goes with low self-esteem.
That said, Virgo’s need to perfect themselves can sometimes go too far and lead to them constantly critiquing themselves and thus feeling that they are never, ever going to be good enough. It is when this happens that self-esteem becomes lacking.
