Virgo Earth Wings
The sign of Virgo receives the favour of quick wit, versatility and analytical virtue legacy of its ruler, Mercury, the zodiac’s winged messenger. Alongside Gemini, Virgo is governed by the flighty thinking planet, who is quicksilver, clever, mischievous and adaptable. Virgo is also recognised as being exalted in Mercury, and is the only sign of the zodiac understood to be exalted in in its home planet. The twin theme in this placement suggests the perfect integration between duality, mysticism, practicality and logic. Though, while Gemini takes flight in the airiness and mercurial primitiveness of the winged messenger, Virgo find themselves stilted, pinned to the ground by the solidness and practicality of Earth. In Esoteric Astrology, Virgo is ruled by the Moon, and lights the glow of the Moon with the electrified thoughts of Mercury.
Virgo dissolutes the airiness of Mercury and provides tangibility, yet also struggles under the nerves, internal restlessness and mental disarray. Quicksilver and fleeting, Mercury strains the Earthy security of Virgo and overturns their ability to acquire mental stability and order. While Gemini is happy enough to obtain information, Virgo is concerned with putting said information into productive resource. While Gemini collects surface information to share, writes the articles, flitters from scene to scene and leaves an unfinished frenzied mess; Virgo processes information, edits the articles, refines with analyses and directs their nervous energy into reorganising Gemini’s mess. While Gemini revels in the trickster and the childlike particles of Mercury, Virgo seeks the solid foreground of facts, divulges into the underlying mechanics and relishes in details. In Virgo, the duality of Gemini subdivides into multiplicity and forces a suitable and refined channel of expression. While Gemini is Mercury’s butterfly, Virgo pins down the wings and loses themselves in the trance of inner patterns and details.
The sign of Virgo rules the digestive system and thus relates to the capacity these individuals have for digesting information. Virgo personalities tend to carry a morbid imagination, the frazzled mercurial nerves directed into repetitive motion and the introverted features of the zodiac’s broadcaster, Mercury. The winged messenger tends to instil tremendous skills in writing, research and teaching though the Virgo native may reduce this to footnotes and indepth analytics. By the time Mercury has exalted its 15 degrees in Virgo, our planetary travel companion leaves the legacy of precocious shrewdness and scholarship; bestowing the legacy of virtue, eloquence, articulateness and a sound judgement. Virgo have the wings of Mercury cut just under their shoulder blades, the world’s knowledge and information giving them fuel to flight, but their earthy interdependence straps their feet forever to their nurturing and nourishing Earth.
L o v e this song ..
Be happy for no reason, like a child. If you are happy for a reason, you’re in trouble, because that reason can be taken from you.
Orgasms, I feel — whether achieved yourself or through a willing partner — are some of the most intense, yet blissful moments of peace you’ll ever find. They’re natures psychedelic. We should share this experience more earnestly; especially with a soul when connect with like woven thread.
