Today Beyoncé celebrates her 40th year around the sun and we’re ticking off all the way she encompasses her astrological sign.
The 28-time Grammy Award-winning artist has changed the face of music over the last decade with her infectious hits, cinematic music videos, poised and polished choreography, and Internet-breaking moments. There’s no one who does it quite like the Houston native.
Bey embodies all the quintessential Virgo traits from her relentless work ethic and determination to her insurmountable creativity and humble nature.
Perhaps what fans love so much about Bey is her sense of Virgo allure and mystique. Every time you see the star dancing and singing with her effortless vocals on stage it’s like watching a masterpiece, and these days as a busy mom of three and entrepreneur, it’s rare to see the former Destiny’s Child member front and center in the media, but it’s apparently intentional. Beyonce recently opened up to Harper’s BAZAAR about why she keeps her personal life so hush-hush.
“I’ve fought to protect my sanity and my privacy because the quality of my life depended on it,” the star explained, citing how the music industry can be detrimental to artists. “A lot of who I am is reserved for the people I love and trust. Those who don’t know me and have never met me might interpret that as being closed off. Trust, the reason those folks don’t see certain things about me is that my Virgo a** does not want them to see it….It’s not because it doesn’t exist!”
We can all take a few lessons from Bey on how persistence and hard work make for the key ingredients to success, and how her Virgo realness has powered a wealth of her amazing achievements throughout the years.
Let’s take a look at some of this enigmatic Earth sign’s Virgo traits.
Meticulous Vision and Creativity
Virgos have an eye for detail and their creativity is unmatched.
During her candid sit down with Harper’s BAZAAR, Beyoncé noted how passionate she was about taking charge of her career in her 20s by pushing her creative boundaries and acquiring new skills. The NAACP award recipient said she built a passion for storytelling and film editing Eventually, Beyonce made her directional debut in 2013 when she released her autobiographical documentary Life Is But a Dream. Oh, and did we mention she directed the entire I Am World Tour in 2014 too?
“I’ve spent so many years trying to better myself and improve whatever I’ve done that I’m at a point where I no longer need to compete with myself, ” the Virgo icon told Harper’s. “I have no interest in searching backwards. The past is the past. I feel many aspects of that younger, less evolved Beyoncé could never f*** with the woman I am today. Haaa!”
We know that’s right!
