The Sun recently went into the sign of Virgo… one of my favorite signs since I AM a Virgo. And right now I think we need ALL the Virgo energy we can get.
It’s a sign that is often misunderstood. So I want to take a few moments to talk about the deeper more esoteric meaning of this beautiful and necessary energy.
Virgo is an earthy sign and has a reputation for being concerned with creating order. She is seen as practical, realistic, quietly competent and continually striving for perfection.
Unfortunately, these seemingly humble virtues are often translated into being obsessed with making sure that the condiments in the spice cabinet are all neat and tidy and arranged alphabetically.
But Virgo’s hidden purpose and solid gold superpower is the capacity to align with DIVINE order.
She has the secret keys to the kingdom of divine feminine wisdom and creative alchemy. She is a down-to-earth witch with the ability to summon the pragmatic magical mojo required to make ideal visions of a more perfect world truly grounded and real.
She knows that this alchemical power she is teaming up with does not really belong to her. It’s something that circulates through her. Which means that she hones herself as a master vessel. A sacred container. A highly initiated receptacle for infinite vitality.
She is well aware that identifying with ego just tends to create speed bumps for divine energy and ultimately slows down and sometimes even blocks divine flow. So she gracefully steps out of the way, making it look like SHE’S not the one doing anything as she directs the transformative powers of the Universe through her very being as a selfless act of service to the greater community.
She doesn’t need the accolades associated with some of the other astrological signs because her reward for the function she serves is that ecstatically, electrically alive feeling that comes from opening to the massive primal energies of the earth element pouring through her and directed by her to where they will do the most good.
She is a temple priestess of the life force.
She willingly surrenders her need to control what she cannot ever understand. She knows that order always includes a spiral like dance with chaos and is NEVER a static end point but a fluid, ever changing process.
She values the focus that is gained by cultivating regularity and routine because she doesn’t want ANYTHING to distract her from her task of channeling that divine radiance into the world. And she deeply understands the wisdom of creating strong and sacred containers to hold the immensity of this cosmic firepower.
She is the ultimate medicine woman, but like all people who walk the true medicine path she operates in stealth mode. Her humility conceals her connection to the power she is nurturing within. She is seen as no one special and she prefers to keep it that way. She appears to be quiet. Unassuming. Or maybe invisible like Baba Yaga hidden deep in the ancient forests. An old woman who is seemingly a threat to no one. But who carries the intelligence of the universe deep in her bones and blood.
She is utterly relentless in her quest for divine perfection. And uses her formidable powers of analysis, discrimination and discernment to help her choose the path and methodology most likely to support that holy dream into achievable form.
She is a force of nature… the face of the Earth Goddess Gaia returning to align us ALL with this universal power to heal, to grow and to re-make the world in a way that serves everyone equally and leaves no one out of the cosmic AND worldly beneficence.
She has a powerful hunger combined with the competent ability to address real world problems in a realistic and sacred way.
