A Slice of Heaven - September 2006
Virgo - the Organizers of the Zodiac
The month of September naturally inclines us to take stock of the status quo, to let go of summertime diversions, and focus on what’s up ahead. For students and parents it’s back to school time, another chapter of education is about to be tackled.
The Virgo individuals born during this time are known to be hard workers, frequently dedicated to a higher cause. They have analytical minds, a keen eye for details and are often found in health and healing related careers. Their digestive systems are sensitive, which makes them interested in nutrition and skilled in the culinary arts.
As the last sign of the first half of the Zodiac Virgo enables the integration of the inner, private self. The next 6 signs, Libra through Pisces are all about relationships and being visible in the world. No wonder there is a quiet, introspective quality to the Virgo individual, which relates to the Tarot image of the Hermit. Independent in personal relationships Virgo’s are drawn to apply themselves in meaningful, often selfless service to others. A girlfriend who married a Virgo once keenly observed: “They get the job done!”
