When making that first step, your Virgo Rising makes you scrutinize where you’re going and how you’ll get there. You have a very analytical view of your environment that gives you the regular role of critic.
Sometimes, this is to
make sure that everything is exactly to your liking. But, often times, you are
also trying to make sure that your actions are going to have a very useful
impact on your environment. So, you navigate your way through a situation
productively, with a minimum of flash. Virgo Rising people generally do not
make a big, loud impression. Instead, your practical intelligence and earthy
simplicity make you come off as rather pure and wholesome.
|Drake: Virgo Rising|
The rapper Drake is a Virgo Rising and is a great example of that air of purity. He’s stood out as a clean-cut, boy-next-door type of hip-hop artist from the beginning. You can take him home to mom. However, it should be said that having this Ascendant isn’t going to necessarily make you an innocent. The Virgo Rising wholesomeness might make you seem that way. But, with other people with this placement, this purity might just be projected as a very sound body, mind, and spirit. This is another way that you might come off as being untainted. You give off the energy of being someone who’s always in the gym and lives by an organic or vegetarian diet. You might also just seem to be a person who is very clear-headed, not easily thrown off course by sentiment or distraction. Whatever the case may be, you give the distinct impression of being very put together.
This can lead to the image of you being mister or miss perfect, even if you don’t really think that about yourself, which might deter those who don’t really know you. Virgo Rising people, somehow, have the appearance of being out of many people’s league. So, some can feel discouraged from approaching you, as if they couldn’t match your standards. Little do they know how hard on yourself you are. If you have any of your planets conjunct the Ascendant, you project them in an exacting, scrutinizing style. Like your Virgo Rising brother Drake, you don’t seem to have a hair out of place, all polished up and self-improved for whatever the occasion is. It always seems like you’ve just taken a shower, as there is a real cleanliness to your aura. You have unshowy mannerisms, not drawing attention to yourself. Your presence is, instead, delightfully simple and grounded. Your walk always suggests that you have something to do and that you fully intend to finish it. You constantly seem ready to roll up your sleeves and tackle some chore. It’s clear by your face that you’re very observant and are assessing everything, which is why you squint so regularly.
Because of this, people often get the distinct vibe that a Virgo Rising is judging them, particularly when they first meet them. This can be one of the more reserved or shy Ascendants, at first, even though your shyness probably won’t shut you up like a clam like a Cancer Rising. But, you do usually get very nervous whenever you’re meeting new people, worrying endlessly about what you’ll say and do. So, you might overcompensate for this self-consciousness by turning that criticism around on them. However, you do make a first impression on people as someone who is intelligent, well-spoken and has a keen eye. You’re the type to notice all of the little nuances and details about a person instantly. Virgo Rising people break the ice by focusing all of their attention on you, as well as doing little things to make themselves useful like fluffing your pillow or getting you a drink.
