virgo moons are intellectual creatures with a strong sense of self. you can be more reserved with your emotions, preferring to analyze (and sometimes overanalyze) situations rather than react impulsively. you can be critical, but in reality you are only this way with the people you care about, because everyone else isn’t worth your attention. of course, criticism is often targeted most internally, so you may find yourself often being hard on yourself. be kind, and trust your intellect as well as your intuition.

the virgo shawl is gentle and soft with a giant shape that is perfect for wrapping around yourself like a small blanket. featuring a classic lace motif, generous fringe, and soft green colour, this design is the perfect project to make for yourself as a gift for being you.
