Virgo in Mercurial Reflections
Updated: Sep 21, 2021
September marks a turn towards the Autumn Equinox, towards the dark half of the year.
The sun in Virgo (23rd August - 22nd September) signals the half way pivot point between the Solstice poles as light lowers, drooping towards the Equinox. The season of gathering and shedding begins.
Each sign hosts a planetary patron, for Virgo it is Mercury. Mercury supports Virgo’s sifting through the bounty of summer, gathering the fruits and consolidating the sun’s period of maximum shine. Virgo’s zodiacal consciousness sorts and syncs what wishes to be incarnated more fully. Discrete details are arranged in pipeline processes, akin to the physical gut it rules over, our inner furnace where nutritional gold - of all kinds - is churned for lamp lighting the winter months ahead.
The light half of the year rises with Gemini - where Mercurially motivated arms and lungs gather, explore , take in - full body inhalation with Springs fresh face . Experiences, encounters, conversations, ideas, adventures travel through the stomach ( Cancer) the heart ( Leo ) arriving in the gut ( Virgo ). Body as temple, as sacred vessel, as processing plant to light time ventures harks to the winged Virgo Maiden.
Virgo recognises the value of time, of taking time to pick apart and pierce through light living consumption to the long term nutrition. To saving and shedding the unessential from the essential, the delicate detail - the sacred art of Virgo. To settle with the essential and weave long lasting tales and trellis’ grounding mind body being, substantially, for darker days.
