(6)The Twelve Signs: Virgo
August 24-September 22
The second sign after Leo (I rule) is (I serve). – Virgo is the sign of the mother-the process of nurturance, of bringing what is born in Cancer into full adulthood.
Mere ego does not get things done, is the lesson of Virgo. One must be willing to take concrete steps towards that goal and leverage accumulated skills and knowledge that are the right ways to do so. So Virgo can sometimes take a pretty rationalist approach to life, discarding things that don’t seem to help much on the way.
Virgo needs the pioneering spirit of Sagittarius, the faith and sensitivity of Pisces, the body of knowledge of Gemini to do its best.
Virgo, in esoteric lore, is the mother. But not in the sense of giving birth, but by nurturance. Virgo uses the skills to curate something to the point where it is fully ready. The cook who spends hours poring over a recipe, the architect who draws up the plans for that dream house down to the last screw. The teacher who works diligently to impart specific knowledge. All are nurturers of a sort-body, mind, or soul.
Virgo Presidents: William Howard Taft, Lyndon Baines Johnson. Both men followed larger than life Presidents, even though LBJ came closer than Taft to the “larger than life” part. The only President to head two branches of government, he was a conservative. However, he continued to support open immigration. He also served during WWI as the Chairman of the Executive Committee of the Red Cross and was appointed a major general by Wilson to give additional authority to the Red Cross’s work
LBj, yes there was Vietnam, but there were the Civil Rights Acts, the Voting Rights Act, and the Great Society that included Medicare.
