Perfectionism for Dummies

As the sun enters Virgo, it’s the perfect time to talk about perfection.  The two signs I see most caught up in perfection are:

  • Virgo
  • Aquarius

Dictionary.com defines perfection as “the highest degree of proficiency, skill, or excellence, as in some art.”

Michael Jackson the Virgo was a perfectionist. If the movie Amadeus is to be believed, Mozart the Aquarius was also a perfectionist.

What’s different about the perfection of these two?

Virgo, the analytical, critical and nervous earth sign seeks perfection as a reaction to criticism. Perfection is a way to avoid future criticism. The criticism Virgo sends out is often a reaction to some criticism he/she received in the past.

Jackson might have been a perfectionist without his father applying vice-like pressure. The sensitive and talented Jackson became the King of Pop but died trying to get some rest from an active mind that obviously kept him up at night.

Aquarius, the analytical, inspired and forward-thinking air sign seeks perfection to match a mental or philosophical image. Perfection is the most harmonious, logical or equitable method to achieve an ideal.

Mozart supposedly heard the music in his head and merely transcribed. That might be a little movie hyperbole as Mozart was trained well by his father. However, if the movie is accurate, once Mozart put his mind’s music on paper, it was not to be altered.

About ohioastrology

I'm just another soul trying to make sense of the world. As I've grown, so has my understanding of astrology. I'd like to communicate that astrology is not occult and not fortune-telling but that it is a fluid, creative description of the life we choose to live.
