This earth sign rules the abdominal region, which explains why Virgo always experiences a nervous stomach before a big event. They can get physically sick when they’re emotionally upset. The upside: Virgo has learned from an early age how to trust their gut—literally. Virgos is tuned into those butterflies, and by paying attention to how their stomachs feel, they can avoid bad situations. In the interim, eating healthy, fresh foods, avoiding processed snacks, not drinking too much caffeine, and working out can help even out how they feel.
When a Virgo is in a bad mood, only his or her closest friends might notice. Virgos pride themselves on seeming unflappable under pressure, and they'll often try to push their bad mood into a corner (hence, those nervous stomachs) Here are ten ways for Virgo to beat those blues:
