The True Meaning of Virgo
Virgo derives from the word ‘virgin’, the real meaning is ‘whole unto oneself’.
Mercury as Ruler of Virgo
Mercury’s domain in Gemini is marked by curiosity and an outward exploration of ideas.
Mercury’s rule over Virgo leads us on a different journey – one that delves deep into the intricate workings of the mind.
Virgo’s brilliant mind, yes it is BRILLIANT, is a tapestry woven with threads of analytical prowess and intellectual depth.
Virgo seeks comprehensive comprehension that explores the minutiae and hidden patterns within the vast tapestry of knowledge.
Like a skilled archaeologist, Mercury-ruled Virgo unearths treasures of insight through careful and methodical exploration, demonstrating that true wisdom often lies in the details.
Vesta as Co-Ruler of Virgo
Priestess: a woman authorised to perform the sacred rites of a religion.
As Goddess of the Hearth, the Romans worshipped Vesta as the keeper of the sacred and home fires. Vesta’s vocation was to keep Rome safe; her life was devoted to this. Vesta was duty-bound to keep herself pure and whole.
Vesta was associated with unmarried, chaste temple virgin priestesses, who through sacred sexual devotions brought the fertilising power of the moon into contact with the lives of human beings.
Vesta was a symbol of protection which ensured the cohesion of the state and family for people of the earth.
The Greek equivalent of Vesta is the goddess, Hestia.
With the emergence of patriarchal rule and a monotheistic god, Vesta’s powers were diminished, and her sacred role was made reduced to serving the hierarchy of the new religions.
