Horror-scopes: How can Freddy Krueger Be a Virgo?

He might not look like a perfectionist, but he does prefer to do his socialising at home...

Freddy Krueger - what we know about his conception sadly isn't as vague as his date of birth.

As ye olde horror film folklore goes, his mum was a nun who was raped by 100 lunatics while working at a hospital. She gave birth at some point in September 1942, and here is why I think he's a Virgo rather than a Libra.

Firstly, what is a typical Virgo man? Cosmo, the mag dedicated to 'fashion, beauty and sex' and now it seems in-depth astrological profiles, have the intel, and the proof that the Springwood Slasher was definitely born before September 23.

For those of you who don't know who Fred Kreuger is, he wears a glove of knives, and lurks in people's dreams hoping to murder them in increasingly grisly ways. He's the epitome of 'dream man' - if you're an unhinged masochist.

Virgos are most compatible with Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio and Capricorn - lucky them!

Strangely, Cosmo's description of Virgo men doesn't include any of the above traits or quirks, but there are other overlaps...

"He’s witty as hell, so he’s sure to make you laugh" - have you seen A Nightmare on Elm Street 4? MASSIVE TICK.

"He wants to listen and learn everywhere he goes, and he especially wants to know as much about you as possible" - is this because he wants to support your dreams? I'd say so, that's a tick.

"Even though he’s ruled by the planet of communication, his way of conveying his point isn’t the nicest.... every day you’re left wondering if he’ll ever give it a rest" - yes, the feeling of not sleeping for days on end can make you wonder if this torture will ever end, tick.

Cosmo also fail to highlight that some Virgo men are 10/10 at rapping... see exhibit A below.
