Virgo-Pisces: Two Aspects of Same Energy

Virgo-ushers-in-New-AgeThe sign, Virgo, is the major key to the shift­ing of our con­scious­ness into the new age. As any woman would attest to and any par­ent for that mat­ter, one of the most momen­tous changes in a life is the birth of a child. In the case of the sym­bol­ism of Virgo, that shift rep­re­sents giv­ing full expres­sion to the spir­i­tual fire within you.

The move­ment of the pre­ces­sion of the equinoxes is a slow shift over cen­turies. This rep­re­sents a type of “dial” for the Earth school point­ing to the lessons to be learned by human­ity dur­ing any given era.

This dial has been mov­ing back­ward through the sign Pisces for about 2000 years and rep­re­sents the Pis­cean era. This era had its empha­sis on religion.

We are cur­rently in the tran­si­tion period between the Pis­cean age and the Aquar­ian age. The Aquar­ian age will be high­lighted by inde­pen­dent sci­en­tific think­ing, spir­i­tual free­dom and the recog­ni­tion that human­ity and the planet Earth are a uni­fied whole.

Virgo is most impor­tant at this time because it is the oppo­site pole of Pisces. The oppo­site signs are two aspects of the same energy. As the pre­ces­sion of the equinoxes shifts from Pisces to Aquar­ius, Virgo, which rules the form, is prepar­ing the new forms for the new age.

The keynote that expresses this idea is “Virgo hides the light that irra­di­ates the World in Aquar­ius.” The beauty of this and the mys­tery of it is that we, as indi­vid­u­als, give birth to the new Age of Aquar­ius by shin­ing our light in our every­day encounters.

This shift into the new age is cre­at­ing major upheaval through­out the world polit­i­cally, finan­cially and envi­ron­men­tally. How we respond to these upheavals is crit­i­cal to the future of humanity.

When you respond to a cri­sis with courage instead of fear, when you choose to express enthu­si­asm for life instead of self pity, when you look some­one in the eye with under­stand­ing and kind­ness instead of crit­i­cism, you are help­ing to give birth to the new age.

Michael, your last para­graph is the per­fect sum­mary of the fail­ure of our national lead­er­ship on 9/11/2001 and the years fol­low­ing. As a nation we responded (reacted) with fear and wasted an oppor­tu­nity for reflec­tion and growth and for build­ing upon the good­will directed towards us after the tragic attacks. The con­se­quences of respond­ing with fear are now well known: We have lost our posi­tion of moral lead­er­ship and eco­nomic well-being. Rather than being a nation united and pros­per­ous we have the opposite.

When we view this through the chal­lenges of Virgo that you describe we see 9/11/01 as a vivid test of its ener­gies. Thank you for putting this in a dif­fer­ent con­text that may still give the chance for tran­si­tion to higher con­scious­ness. Although we may have failed the Virgo test a decade ago, we may yet be able to give birth to what it promises for humanity.

I am a curi­ous Virgo Michael. Why is it that Virgo hides the light?
“Virgo hides the light that irra­di­ates the World in Aquarius.”

That’s very well said Richard. The United States has Nep­tune in Virgo. It seems that we need a new spir­i­tual vision for this coun­try in order to give birth to our great­est pos­si­bil­i­ties and sur­vive this major crisis.

Hid­ing the light is nour­ish­ing and pro­tect­ing it as a Mother pro­tects a child.
