(August 23-September 22)
Psychologists J. Clayton Lafferty and Lorraine F. Lafferty wrote a book called Perfectionism: A Sure Cure for Happiness. It's based on their work with clients who damaged their lives "in the illusory pursuit of the unrealistic and unattainable standard of perfection." In my observation, many of us are susceptible to this bad habit, but you Virgos tend to be the most susceptible of all. The good news is that you now have an excellent chance to loosen the grip of perfectionism. You are more receptive than usual to intuitions about how to relax your aspirations without compromising your competence. As inspiration, consider these words from author Henry James: "Excellence does not require perfection." Leadership expert R. R. Stutman adds: "If perfection is an obstacle course, excellence is a masterful dance."
