Virgo Rising Sign

virgo-rising-signThe most pervasive trait of the Virgo Ascendant is analysis. Because you have choice in how to engage in Virgo expression, you tend to analyze everything you do, with the intention of improving your own performance. You are able to research a subject intensely, studying the nuances of situations in order to find the most utilitarian methods for the task at hand. Once you have mastered a subject, you are well able to teach it to others in a logical, step-by-step way.

The developmental stage reflected in the Virgo Ascendant is the harvest. You rejoice in the moment when everything comes together in a fruitful expression of cooperation. You discriminate among factors presented to you and usually are able to find the proper line of approach to any problem. The less constructive side of the Virgo Ascendant can be seen in mental egotism. You sometimes feel you are superior to other team members, for example. You find fault with their work, perhaps in an attempt to show your superiority.

The path of Virgo is not easy. It embodies the human capacity to protect, to nurture and to reveal higher spiritual truths. The developmental power of Virgo can be experienced on at least four levels:

1. First there is the mental capacity. You examine, experiment and think about the results.
2. You use the same thought processes to examine emotional and astral realms, and understand the depth of personal involvement in this way.
3. You have the capacity for understanding the process of motherhood. You use all your practical skills to nurture your children, your crops, or your creative efforts through to maturity.
4. You metaphorically destroy or leave behind each task and its results.

The potential weakness of the Virgo Ascendant is spiritual materialism. You may be tempted to make your spiritual path into a measure of your value. Or you may measure your own spiritual value against that of another person. The aforementioned egotism and faultfinding may extend themselves into the spiritual world. This potential pitfall is part of the probationary quality of Virgo. In traditional astrology Virgo is the sign of service and this is true on the spiritual plane as well.

The power of cycles underlies the spiritual path of the Virgo Ascendant. For example, the phases of the Moon hold tremendous power because through them Virgo can relate to the energy of the earth itself. Sensitivity to the nuances of cycles can become a formidable force in your hands when you are open to their subtle movements. Any contemplative practice relaxes the mind so you can feel these energies will work. You may have different practices for different cycles of the Moon.

The physical effect of your spiritual work can often be felt in the nervous system. When your path is clear you can expect to feel calm and collected. When the path is not clear, you may feel a range of response from tightness in the abdomen to general stress to heightened anxiety.
