Sign Number: 6th Keyword: Purity
Element: Earth Ruling Planet: Mercury/Chiron
Virgo is the sixth sign of the Zodiac and it represents the phase that brings social consciousness back to earth. The project now moves to the interacting with others on a practical level. A project must now deal with its sense of service.
My keyword for Virgo is “purity” because it shows both a striving for perfection and the necessary modesty that must be the attitude for service. The “social” level means that this earth energy is focused on the practical interaction between self and others, rather than the earth energy relating to the Universe (Capricorn) or the personal earth requiring common sense (Taurus.) Virgo is a mutable sign, indicating the adaptability it must show regarding service. The symbol of Virgo is the human young woman (maiden) who tends to practical details by preparing for winter.
