VIRGO AND THE MOON

“It is said that from some aspects, Virgo is the oldest of the Zodiacal signs. Down through the ages, be it Lilith or Isis, Eve or the Virgin Mary, all portray the Mother of the World, but it is Mary who, at length bears the Child in her arms.” The Tibetan Master through Alice Bailey

           Purification, Cleansing, Healing and Service are keywords for Esoteric Virgo and its ruling planet, the Moon. This is the sign our Sun is in for the first half of this month. Virgo Rising especially is indication in a chart that these are key dynamics regarding the chart holder’s life purpose. It is a life of purging all that is not needed for spiritual evolution, of doing away with unnecessary riff-raff, materialism and selfish indulgences. It is a lifetime of recognizing that we are ALL here to be in Service to one another. That is what this month in this time of Initiation of humanity is about: Gestation, Preparation.

          Here is the fundamental problem of the relationship between matter and Spirit resolved. The job is to purify our attitudes and develop spiritual values. The symbology of Virgo concerns the goal of the evolutionary process as it shields, nurtures and finally reveals the hidden, spiritual reality. Every human being contains within him or herself the power to recognize and release the Higher Self, the indwelling potency of the Soul. Few are as strong as what Mary had to go through to birth the Christ to save the world. As the Holy Mother principle she symbolizes matter, but is also the custodian of the Christ principle, the Christ Consciousness. This stage of evolution is about seeking self-perfection through practices that will prepare the personality for use by the Soul. Following Virgo is Libra, when the preparation has been completed and the marriage between the two selves can occur.
