A Virgo, An Introvert, A Virtual World
by Shihab Hashim El Amin
I never believed in astrology. All these signs analyzing our personalities and our future. Our pros and cons, our love interests and compatibilities. They are but mere interpretations that try to bind us to a set of characteristics that may or may not resemble us. To put limitations on a path that can be as long as your imagination can reach. Nevertheless, as you grew into me slowly, i took liberty in exploring your sign, to have an idea or two about your complex, astute and vague personality. I start to read, and dig deep, but all that awaited me was more of the same. Confusion. Perplexity. Bewilderment. I decided to take a different angle on this, a unique approach, that would allow me to acquire knowledge through clear and simple means. I decided to analyze your traits by observing you as a whole. To scrutinize your behavioural aspects. To study your guarded mind. What i witnessed was a world that was mesmerising. A world that my mind can tap into and live inside. A world that unless u dwell within, can never be comprehended. It is at this very moment that i realized that Virgo exists in the mind, everything is inside. What you see outside is only what you get. There it is, a world full of emotions and thoughts, over analyzing at every minute detail. How intriguing, how compelling, how charming. That constant drive to improve and perfect what can be perfected. While showing a calm and collected exterior. Others may see you as cold and detached from your surroundings. But i learnt to project you through your virtual world that unveils a maze, a maze i would love to get lost within. To turn around at every corner and discover a thought, a conjecture, a hidden conception. The obsession of having a controlled and an organized mind. To bring order to chaos. How can such intricacy not illuminate me? Every day i talk to you is a chance to indulge into your virtual reality. A world i can traverse into but only under your own rules. This predominant interest in one’s own mental self. The value given in mental energy rather than physical energy. The focus on choosing the right companion. I revel in such a mysterious world that attracts me to you. Virgo is more than just a sign, more than just a word, it’s a way of life. A world where the mind takes control of your fate. You are a Virgo. A mind i fell in love with once. You are an introvert. A mental energy that drove all that is tangible and pragmatic. You are a virtual world. A realm that resides within your tortuous mind that dwindles all of our realities. Yes indeed. A Virgo, an introvert, a virtual world.
