It’s all G-O-O-D for Virgo

golden age sm

The golden age was first; when Man yet new,
No rule but uncorrupted reason knew:
And, with a native bent, did good pursue.
Unforc’d by punishment, un-aw’d by fear -Ovid

Sounds like a Virgo: ruled by reason, she puts G-O-O-D in the world. Minus an “O” and you’ve got G-O-D, really just an acronym for Good Orderly Direction. The Earth Mama aspect of Virgo makes her a great organizer, worker and helper. Virgo’s Birkenstocks are really fairy slippers for the Queen of Heaven. The mystical aspect of Virgo is that she takes Good Orderly Direction real well.

Today the Sun enters Virgo. Of the many myths of Virgo, the one I’m thinking of right now is the story of Astraea, the Star Maiden, daughter of Zeus and Eos. When the immortal Olympians lived on earth during the Golden Age. As humankind became corrupt and wicked, generally unkind, reluctant Astraea was the last to leave (sensitive Virgo can’t tolerate unkindness). So Astraea flew into the sky, becoming the constellation Virgo. And that earthly-heavenly connection is why I think the stars gaze back to us in Virgo.

Think about it: Astraea reluctantly left earth. I think she probably really liked it here but couldn’t deal with with all the B.S, man’s inhumanity. With her poor nerves, she probably broke out in hives and soon after, suffered irritable bowel flare-ups. Spending all her time at the local healer interfered with her ability to provide sustainable harvest. Why stay when she was far more productive up there, providing guidance to us, her flock?

Do you know a Virgo on a mission?
