The Sixth Sign of the Zodiac

Its symbol is probably a representation of the Girdle of Hymen, and has reference to the Immaculate Conception of a Messiah. It is usually pictured by a virgin holding in her hand a green branch, an ear of corn or a spike of grain. Spica is a star in the constellation of Virgo. Here was commemorated the Festival of Ishtar, goddess of fertility.

The Sun is in Virgo annually from August 23 to September 22. Astrologically and astronomically it is the thirty-degree arc immediately preceding the Sun’s passing over the Fall Equinoctial point, occupying a position along the Ecliptic from 150° to 180°.

It is the Mutable quality of the Earth element: negative, cold, dry, sterile, human, also critical, practical, helpful.

Ruler: Mercury.

Detriment: Jupiter.

Fall: Venus.
