Motherhood is a gift to Virgo moms who like nothing more than to be in service, to feel like they have purpose and, let’s face it, really enjoy organizing, managing and planning! Virgos are, maybe surprisingly, down to earth and fun, and motherhood creates a perfect mix of opportunity for them to have control and let loose in equal parts. Think of baking with your kids: measuring precisely, but also getting in a flour fight (it’s just flour, it won’t kill anybody!)
A lot of Virgo moms are professionally high achievers and do find the slowdown into parenting a bit rough. They can push their kids sometimes and tend to have a neurotic side, but their interest in expanding their children’s minds make them excellent teachers. They happen to also have an affinity for nature and many Virgos are successful gardeners and like to expose their children to the steady, patience building experience of gardening.
Virgo is the sign of the 6th house, and the sign of health and wellness, so they tend to be staunch about eating habits, and cooking is often a pastime, hobby or passion for many Virgos. The hardest aspect of Virgo mamas is that they can be a bit judgy (of their kiddos and themselves.) Learning to let go and be more forgiving with the process of parenting and not so focused on the destination and more on the journey can ease the natural anxiety of these sometimes high-strung mamas. Those close to them will have to realize that their judgement comes from a place of wanting to help; they just don’t have much tact when they offer advice or criticism. They themselves are perfectionists and self-judgers, so they don’t hear the criticism the way others do.
Virgo moms do have a deeply trusting side which comes through in their ability to allow their children room to have experiences and grow. Many Virgo moms are some of the best about teaching their children responsibility early on from household chores, to managing money to planning and keeping schedules. The takeaway for Virgo moms is to loosen up, realize it can be all about the fun and not everything has to be over-analyzed.
