There is a magnificent statue of the virgin goddess Artemis, one of many names for the Great Goddess, she represents the nurturer and giver of life to all that lives. But she is Virgo in the sense that she is self-possessed, her own person. In early mythology, from which we inherit the figure of the Virgin Goddess, before the Hellene invasion from the north into the agricultural civilizations of the Aegean in around 2000 B.C.. The goddess did not owe her powers or her status to a divine husband as we see her in later mythology. She ruled alone, self-contained, single, yet offering her femininity freely as she chose. She was the consort of all life. ----Liz Greene
There are many identities represented by the constellation Virgo, all of them related to maidens, purity and fertility. In India, Virgo was Kauni, mother of the great god Krishna, while the Babylonians linked her with the goddess Ishtar. When she descended into the underworld to reclaim her husband, Tammuz, god of the Harvest, the earth went dark and nothing grew. The great gods were forced to intervene, she and Tammuz were saved, and the earth bloomed again.
The first week of the month starts on Wednesday the 1st. As we go into the weekend, mental ability and communication are highlighted. It will be easier to generate ideas, and creativity is enhanced.

Venus enters the sign of the Scorpion on Wednesday the 8th. Later on this same day, Jupiter goes into Aries. Midweek would be a good time for pursuing new ideas as imagination is enhanced. Many will be wanting to simplify and just take it easy, while others are seeking the unusual, pursuing new ideas, or attracted to the mystical.
Sunday the 12th through Wednesday many may feel drawn to the darker or mysterious side of things. It is easier at this time to do research and find needed information.
