You're somewhat of a pessimist about life in general, seeing gray clouds hovering on the horizon. You're not content to leave things in that gloomy state, however — you want to fix everything right here, right now! That can lead to working in various charitable positions, but even such noble efforts never quite satisfy. Having a birth number of 8 means that you'll always try to fulfill the goals and expectations of others, but within yourself it never seems like enough. Holding high expectations is one thing, but it's okay to pat yourself on the back for a job well done too!
Today's Virgo needs to stop looking for trouble. There's more than enough of it in life without cultivating that negativity. Sadly, an imperfect world is part of what bugs this entire birth sign, which is happiest when things go exactly as planned. The calculating nature of the birth number 8 isn't helping matters much, so just try to cultivate a little more positivity in your life, as best you can.
As a friend or partner, you're relatively shy. A lot of that withholding comes from a certainty of getting hurt. Loved ones are going to have to jump through a few hoops before that wanes. However, if they show you that their intentions are honorable, you'll reward them with unbridled passion.
Gift idea: a sun lamp.
