With the Sun in Virgo in the 10th house, there is a select world “out there” that is your office space. You discover personal power by becoming so cleanly efficient in achieving your goals, you are almost machine-like. Your central purpose is to have an ambition which demands relentless practice to make perfect. You shine by displaying precision and technical expertise in your vocation. Coming into your own means you are prepared for others to scrutinize your authority as much as you scrutinize theirs. Self-realization means that no matter what you achieve or how far you go, deep inside you continue to be sensitive to outside criticism. Being you means you want to be recognized for all the parts that create the whole of your work.
A boo is a lot louder than a cheer. If you have 10 people cheering and one person booing, all you hear is the booing.

I look back on some of the stuff I wore and I’m so embarrassed. I definitely blame it on this clique of girls I was friends with back then. I’ve been talked into wearing stuff that I didn’t want to wear. Now I like very simple, elegant things, by Oscar de la Renta or [Giorgio Armani].

The 8th is also the gateway into the underworld, the transitional place where we discover that we are not masters of our lives, but must bow to more archaic, primal needs and patterns that are larger and older than any individual.
