Zodiac cards: Virgo


VirgoCard: Aren’t you curious?
Color scheme: Gray with the letter V in mulberry, ITC Edwardian Script, 60 point
Chief feature: Cryptic terms of use
(Aug. 22-Sept. 22)

Don’t you hate it when a credit card company makes its offer so clear and concise that even a juiced baseball player can understand it? OMG, where’s the challenge in that? But now there’s VirgoCard, the one financial instrument whose terms of use are so deeply mired in legal obfuscation that we Virgo perfectionists will never tire of trying to crack the code. That’s right, for once you’ll have absolutely no idea what your APR, annual fee or late charges will be. Heck, you’ll spend days just figuring out what bank it’s from. Apply today and we’ll even send your statements in Sanskrit!

For fun, click on your Zodiac sign below to read about how a credit card might one day be tailored to your unique astrological make-up. Remember, this is imaginary, not real, so don’t try to apply for it, no matter what the stars say.
