“A woman, however, if exceptional enough could earn the title virago. In doing so, she surpassed the expectations for what was believed possible for her gender and embodied masculine-like aggression and/or excellence. Virago, then, was a title of respect and admiration. In Christianity, a nun or holy woman who had become equal in divinity to male monks through practiced celibacy, exemplary religious practice and devotion, and intact virginity, was considered to have surpassed the limitations of her femaleness and was called virago.”
“The word virago has almost always had an association with cultural gender transgression. There are recorded instances of viragos (such as Joan of Arc) fighting battles, wearing men’s clothing, or receiving the tonsure. ” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virago

VIRGO is the largest Constellation. What we know as The Virgin Goddess as Demeter to the Greeks, was originally known as VIRAGO. A woman of “masculine” strength or spirit; a female warrior. We all know that VENUS was known both as the Goddess of LOVE AND WAR, so before the patriarchy really imbalanced her obvious physical strength, Virgo meant VIRAGO. The latter Virgin Goddess originally meant she was a parthenogensis Goddess too capable of self-fertility. She is not a-sexual. These women were sacred sexual Priestesses.
Whole and complete unto herself, needing no man at all. Virgo is the Great Mother, the Goddess of the earth and the Harvest shown holding an ear of corn, relating to mysteries of life death and transformation, part of the Eleusinian mysteries of rebirth.
You just need to be very pure and hygienic, dedicated and focussed if you are going to be able to give birth parthenogenically or to be with a Virgo of either sex.
Virgo is apparently the most populated Astrology sign according to statistics.
Out with the VENUS in LEO drama and the passion, the power-mongering, Royalty treatments. Even though Sun enters LEO July 22, 2021 and It’s all about ME attitude. We need a break from all that Venus and MARS in LEO drama.
Venus in Virgo, in the 6th house naturally, is in it’s “FALL” because VENUS is considered to be exalted in PISCES so sheis considered weak in the 6th sign.
Venus in Virgo’s is service-oriented “How can I help you” peeps.” For a Virgo work is their religion.
Virgo’s are not generally very emotional or passionate they have practical emotional control. This placement is very modest, earthy, the servants traditionally. The waiters and waitresses of the Zodiac. They are workaholics, perfectionists, intelligent, organized, budget-conscious, worriers. Totally opposite to LEO.
VENUS in Virgo
imparts VENUSian values- feminine, creative, relationships, values, to all things VIRGO.
Venus in Virgo peeps are the workaholics and perfectionists of the ZODIAC. Occasionally they appear messy but they’ve got it all organized in their heads. My Dad was a totally messy Virgo. They are sensitive and easily hurt.
It’s Marie Kondo declutter as a spiritual act time for sure.
Health is a huge issue for Virgo/Venus in Virgo as they do worry a lot and that affects their health. They often have underlying health issues. Their weakest body part is the Upper intestines and they should avoid drinking alcohol, greasy, heavy and spicy foods. They are very disciplined and health conscious so they are often working out, doing yoga, on special food diets. They often work in the health care system and can be doctor’s, dentists, kinesiologists, chiropractors, natural health practitioners, administrators or salespeople with the health care system.
Naturally accountants or anyone who pays attention to details, statistics and the like. They are usually excellent money managers, and very tight with money, they love budgets. They love “freebies”
With Venus in Virgo, you gotta love your work. If not find the work that you do love.
DATING DURING VENUS IN VIRGO SEASON
women, love, values turn to earthy practical shoes and budget shopping, wearing brown or harvest ochres or golden shades. Women dress more conservatively business-like, more modest, sensible pumps, blue jeans, simple and clean styling.
Virgo’s are very focussed, detail-oriented, nitpicky, perfectionist, never satisfied, workaholics -you will have to pry them away from their desks, as they are married to their job’s and they may avoid intimacy because they love information, social media, especially hands-on books, etc.
Mercury rules VIRGO’s we must always remember that. They are intellectual, info gatherers, and they will analyze your potential first.
VIRGO is the sign that is associated with THE HERMIT in the TAROT
They don’t have to be all alone but they are private, humble, service-oriented people.
You don’t have to splurge on an expensive date to impress a Virgo. Take them to a health-conscious, organic nouvelle cuisine simplistic resto. They love places that seem to offer good value, as they do not have expensive tastes necessarily. They like tasteful things and they love bargains. They like spas.
Virgo’s love to read and talk, they like Hi-brow culture, a good play, see lectures, or matinee movies.
Remember they are down to earth, nothing too fussy types. They love to and need to be in nature. Camping, hiking, bicycling, walk in the countryside.

During this time your upper digestion will likely be more sensitive. Especially when Mars also enters Virgo and agitates Virgo’s already sensitive digestive tract. Do watch your diet very carefully, eating well and being meticulous about what you eat. Good time to initiate a new cleaner, more plant-based diet too. The body works best with natural medicines.
