Some Virgo Considerations:
Virgo is a Mutable sign. Mutable is adaptable and perceptive.
Virgo is where critical perception manifests.
There is a continual challenge to improve and make things better.
Virgo’s place importance on health and youthfulness.
There is always something to be concerned about!
They are very tactile and easily discomforted.
Their special gift is to improve the quality of life.
They are intolerant of those who do not help
And of those who make things more difficult.
They are continually making adjustments and improvements.
Virgo is ruled by Mercury, or the mind.
This is the critical or discriminating mind. When positive this shows a brilliant intelligence. When negative it can degenerate into constant complaints and excessive criticism.
The challenge is to practice what one preaches
And to keep one’s mind positive and clear.
This is the dark half of Summer.
Darkness increases and with it
Comes growing responsibilities and fading freedoms.
Daylight is still greater than darkness but it’s predominance will soon be neutralized. One needs to prepare for the future and improve one’s capacity for relationship. One needs to be useful and helpful to others or difficulties will increase.
This is the trigram of The Abysmal, Water.
Too much water will destroy the crops; too little will diminish the harvest. Virgo’s are vulnerable to the abyss of discrimination.
They can isolate themselves by too much criticism,
And they can impair their progress by too little criticism.
There is a need to improve or perfect.
The job is rarely ever completed. There is always more to be done.
They do too much or too little. It is difficult to find a balance here.
The Eight-fold Path for Virgo is Right Mindfulness or Right Attentiveness. One needs to be diligently aware, mindful and attentive with regards to: the activities of the body (focus on breathing and exercise), sensations and feelings, activities of the mind, and ideas, thoughts and conception of things.
