Coco's Complex

Courtney Cox
Courtney Cox worries about her daughter's perfectionism, saying in an interview:
"[My daughter is] very artistic, but she's also a perfectionist. I feel a little bad: That's the part I see in her that's like me — and you don't want them to have that at age 5." 
Good news, mom. She'll probably grow out of it as she learns to manage that Virgoan need to do everything right. Coco was born with Jupiter in the sign of Virgo, a sign that likes to weigh, measure, and control many things in its world. Jupiter represents our desire to grow and reach our potential, an agenda which Virgo is in total agreement with, but Virgo wants to grow by improving, becoming better at whatever they set their mind to than they were before. It's out of this need to grow but to control that Virgo's perfectionism complex is born. 

Virgo gains a lot of pleasure and self-esteem by doing things right, but it can be pretty hard on itself when it makes a mistake, which can make it very hard for them to have patience with themselves when they are learning and practicing. Coco can stop herself from trying sometimes because she's afraid it'll come out wrong. Because of the tense relationship between Jupiter in Virgo and Venus (a planet not just of love but also creativity and art) in Gemini, she may often tense up and stop the free-flowing creativity in experimental Gemini. As she learns to recognize this feeling and gets more confident in her abilities (not to mention gaining experience), she'll be able to more naturally push through her fears of getting it "wrong!"
