Just a love story

This is my second post on this Virgo and Sagittarius compatibility. I fell in love with this love story. It’s a real-life fairytale, a true rags-to-riches story and it lasted more than 50 years. And if you don’t believe in love or astrology or anything out of this material world we live in …just keep reading as you will be amazed.

The woman of the story is a Virgo, born on the 20th of September 1934. Sophia Loren made history in 1961 as the first performer to win an Academy Award for a foreign-language role with “Two Women”. Born in Rome, raised in Pozzuoli, a small town of fishermen outside of Naples, Sophia experienced some of the worst privations of the Second World War—terror and starvation. But miracles do happen and that is when Sophia met the man of the story. Carlo Ponti, one of the greatest film producers of all time from Italy, born on the 11th of December 1912 and he not only discovered Sophia Loren at the age of 15, but fell in love with her along with the world. She was 15 and he was 37 years old. It was love at first sight. He changed her name and prepared her for the stardom. “I knew immediately she was someone remarkable. Something played off her that gave her a kind of illumination.”—Carlo Ponti There was a small problem: he was married. To the Virgo woman, being the “other one” was unacceptable especially after the very strict upbringing she had as a child.

They were madly in love with one another and despite that there were critics who would say the marriage would never last, they tied the knot 7 years later. After just a month, Carlo Ponti was charged with bigamy as the Catholic Church would not recognize Carlo’s divorce. It took horrible years of courtroom power struggle before he was cleared of the charge. After reaching an extraordinary agreement, Carlo Ponti and Sophia Loren moved to France because here they were allowed to remarry. And that was the clearance for the second wedding of the couple. Their love was as strong as ever, and while marriage to some may simple be ‘a piece of paper’ — to the Virgo woman, it meant the world.

Despite the 22- year age gap between the Sagittarius and his beautiful Virgo wife, their union stood the test of time. The couple had 2 children together. The Italian producer died at 94. They remained together for more than 50 years.

I have to end this post with a word from mr Sagittarius here – Carlo Ponti spent all his life loving Sophia Loren and on his 90th birthday he said “I have done everything for love of Sophia. I have always believed in her.

When Virgo meets Sagittarius

I have to write these thoughts on compatibility about Virgos and I have planned writing 2 posts. It’s a first for myLittleAstrology, but I have to tell you I was really surprised by my findings.  I was searching for a great couple for a Virgo and in pure astrology I have to tell you that Taurus or Capricorn would be the perfect match. Also, if you are a Virgo, try the Water Signs – Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces. Well, I have found out that some Virgos appreciate the Fire signs and especially a really peculiar sign: Sagittarius! Let’s see – Sagittarius is a great fire sign, full of energy and power and fun and travel and friendship! Virgo, as I told you, is serious, shy, conventional and down to earth. The 2 of them together? Seems far-fetched. But in real life things happen in a different way. This is the proof:

I hope you know these 2 people very well and I hope you instantly see the sparks between them. I read that friends say that they are soul mates. They have been together for 12 years now and they grow and they look more engaged each day.  Yes, I am talking about Jay-Z and Beyonce!

At first, their relationship was kept a secret and they were not out in the open all the time. After a while, they were all over the place with their love.

Beyonce is a Virgo Woman, born September 4, an American singer, songwriter and actress. Jay-Z is a Sagittarius Man, born December 4, an American rapper, record producer, and entrepreneur. He is one of the most financially successful hip-hop artists in America. They were very different from the beginning as she is from a wealthy family and brought up in high standards and he was raised by a single mum in Brooklyn. As they were a very private couple, the public started to see them together at basketball games. He was huge when they met and she was a star aiming for No 1. That is why her music was influenced by Jay-Z a lot.

I used to say Virgos make the perfect women. If you don’t agree, look at this statement by Beyonce: “You can’t rush a man into anything – whether it’s a relationship, marriage or having children. When he’s ready, he’ll let you know“. They are now married and have a little baby. Does it get better than this? I’m not sure…

What about Virgo and Sagittarius? Sagittarius is an explorer who loves to socialize, while Virgo prefers to analyze everything about her lover. Virgo can offer Sagittarius security and keep them on track with their ambitions. Sagittarius can add variety and drama and a smile on her face. Virgo’s planet is Mercury, while Jupiter is the planet of Sagittarius. These 2 go well together: communication and good luck.

Sagittarius wants freedom in all forms, while Virgo needs financial strength and stability. They have to understand that about each other and the magic is fixed. Especially if the Sagittarius man knows how important financial stability is for the Virgo woman. They have a wonderful, complimentary style and have no trouble working together. Hard to belive for me, but these 2 make a crazy and stable couple!

Love a Virgo?

As my friend and designer Cristina is getting married tomorrow and I do not have a Virgo Illustration; I have decided I should take charge and write this post on my own. I have a promise from her that we will eventually see the Virgo illustration. I can’t wait for that to happen. I am having a hell of a time and not in a good way with this Virgo Sun and Pisces Full Moon influence. That is enough about me! Let’s see what’s with this special, earthy sign of Virgo.

Virgo people are the ones that you will find at a desk working on something. They love detail work and they are very efficient, so they probably won’t notice you. They are always careful, love to focus on something and are able to work for very long periods of time. They know when to stop something as they always have in mind the return on investment thing. They reap and they saw. This is just the way they are. Sometimes they will seem too perfect and too rational, but it’s just how they are supposed to be. Expressed negatively, they can be picky and critical. In my opinion it is very good to have someone around that can criticize and correct along the way. Mistakes are definitely avoided with a Virgo nearby. Virgos preciseness, refinement, fastidious love of cleanliness, hygiene and good order, conventionality and aristocratic attitude of reserve are legendary.

Virgo is an earth sign, so they are extremely grounded and down to earth. They speak the Taurus language, if you know what I mean. They have a thing of materials possessions and they will strive and achieve them slowly and steady. Virgos are health conscious, to the point of having lots and lots of information on diet or hygiene. Many Virgos choose a medical career so they won’t miss anything on this subject.

In fact, the most significant thing to Virgo people is service. They are always ready to help others, and are very sympathetic to their friend’s problems. Often they are shy and very sensitive, but deep down are generous with their love. They are the ones you should always count on for a helping hand. Ruled by Mercury they are interested in many subjects. As well as being a thinker and that comes from Mercury, they are also the doers. Virgos would willingly make sacrifices for those who are less fortunate. So, a good career would also be one in social care.

Virgo’s make the best accounts and CFO’s (Chief Financial Officers) of any company. They just have a thing for money. I have to point out to investor Warren Buffett, Virgo, born August 30. He is widely considered the most successful investor of the 20th century! I loved one of his quotes: “Today people who hold cash equivalents feel comfortable. They shouldn’t. They have opted for a terrible long-term asset, one that pays virtually nothing and is certain to depreciate in value.

Now let’s see what to do when we fall in love with this zodiac sign, what do we get out of the love affair? Only criticism and attention to detail and money or …

Love a Virgo Woman? This woman is timid, sensitive, shy and very delicate. But this is only on the surface! Inside, the Virgo woman is very powerful, detached, and passionate with a great capacity for devoted love. Usually these women are extremely beautiful! The Virgo woman will stand by your side forever and ever. She will be the perfect mother and she will always put things in order in chaotic circumstances. She will not be an easy target, she is really hard to get. But when you do, she is a keeper as she has an extreme capacity for unconditional love. She requires patience and you will have to court her and work hard to impress her. To me, she is a keeper as she will be devoted, loyal and make you very happy.

Love a Virgo Man? Virgo men make sensitive lovers and will put your pleasure first. So, you are a lucky woman! Virgos have an aura of self-control and calm that makes them deliciously intriguing. This man is an apt example of a perfect gentleman. He knows how to treat a woman and these men are known to be very good with children. He won’t be the crazy romantic guy, but he will be by your side and will be very loyal. He is very conservative and down to earth. He loves a good talk and he will assure you he can take care of the rest of the world while you stay by his side. He is the money maker, remember Mr Warren Buffett?
