Kanya, much like its symbol and name is feminine, lady-like, graceful and duty-bound. The 6th Sign of the Hindu Zodiac, Kanya is also a meticulous perfectionist. Most Kanya-born natives are sincere and caring to the fault – towards their families, friends and loved ones.
Kanya people are also open to helping others, especially the ones who are close to others. Expert communicators, they also are often good at giving advice, and thus, you may find them being the ‘proverbial agony aunt’ of their circle. They also make good parents, and are pretty protective of their mate, family and loved ones. They are said to be the fitness-conscientious Sign of the Zodiac – so dedicated in their pursuit of fitness, health and well being of their own selves as well as others’.
They are of average height. They have a pale skin complexion, high forehead, beautiful eyes, and a sensitive mouth. They have a delicate body, and long, elegant arms, but can be very fidgety. The split at the end of the nose, a gap in the front teeth and cheek pouches mark them out.
Kanya symbolizes purity. They have a high sense of good and bad. They have an uncanny ability to sense the ulterior motives of people. This makes them very circumspect in their dealings with others. Though they are rather passive, when the situation demands it, they can be very agile.
They are a cleanliness freak, which may seem irrational to others. Although they are intelligent, they can frequently feel confused about their daily chores. They may not exactly be an extrovert, but they are good at making new contacts. Their keen sense of responsibility can often lead to heavy stress. They can be emotional, too, but they rarely make their emotions public, preferring to keep within themselves which, at times, can add to the stress.
They make an excellent lover. They are sensuous, methodical and have a great deal of patience, which means they can wait a long time for their soul-mate to figure out they have a good thing going. However, it’s important for them to feel needed by their mates. Even though they won’t express many words of love, they will be quite demonstrative in the bedroom. They prefer to have a few strong connections rather than many partners. They are loyal to their partners and love to live on the wild side once in a while.
As a friend, they are attached to close ones. However, once they become intimate with a friend they will go to great lengths to keep them happy. They will always be around when their friends need them and would advise them in their best interests in times of difficulties. They are true givers in relations and it feels good to have them around.
They are very health conscious and exercise moderation and balance in their diet, as they do in everything else, so it is seldom that they fall sick. This also acts as an automatic defense mechanism against obesity, and its attendant problems. But their problem areas are their lungs, hips, bowels and the nervous system. They can be obsessive worriers which is a sure shot way to psychosomatic disorders. They need to take it easy and learn to let go things that cause the anxiety.
Methodical, sincere and hard-working, they achieve success on the career front quite easily; because work is not something they do to just pass the time. For them, their work is an extension of their personality. They seek perfection and won’t stop until they achieve it. And for more than anybody else, it is for their own sense of job satisfaction that they leave no stone unturned to reach perfection.
Known for their analytical mind, they have the potential to reach great heights in professions where precision is called for. They should choose professions that have growth potential. Hence, a profession in Math, Physics, Finance, Engineering, Research, Medical, Architecture, Investment and Stock Market may prove to be a good career choice. Also, these helpful and observant people make great data analysts, contractors, accountants, lawyers and teachers.
Methodical, meticulous, analytical and mentally astute, the Kanya natives are perfectionists to the core, or at least, they like to believe that they are. They are excellent managers, and may even ruthlessly ensure that the work is done well.
