Virgo Decan 1 ~ Aug 23 to Sep 2 (0º-10º)


Virgo Decan 1Virgo decan 1 is ruled by the Sun and Mercury (Virgo Triplicity). The sun navigates through the constellations of the Great bear, the Dragon and the Sextans from August 23 to September 2. Virgo decan 1 is an odd section of the zodiac since it carries mostly stars that are far from the ecliptic except for just one alpha star in Sextans. These people are a little more “far out” than your average Virgos so that they almost flip over to their opposite in Pisces. These seers usually develop their sensitivity after a period of suffering, dutiful caring and even a broken heart. You will see that none of the stars here are particularly easy or “fun” in any sense at all. It doesn’t mean that these folk are always dour or miserable, (though some can be fantastic Victor Meldrews) they just won’t be your happy, clappy type. Instead Virgo decan 1 has an ironic, dry sense of humour. They are also good at turning very tragic situations into something humorous.

Guardian Angels, Persephones & Seers

“There is a violent, brooding, malignant side to this area that can manifest in aggression, cruelty and malevolence. Set against tropical Virgo’s equally strong will-to-good, these stars force clear good-or-evil choices on their heirs. It would be well for those born under them to choose their philosophy with care, for once a belief is adopted, it is likely to be followed to the end”
[1] Diana K Rosenberg also notes that the stars between 6-8º Virgo have a Saturn/Neptune flavour which I would say goes for the whole of this decan. The Sextans is used for navigating Neptune’s sometimes treacherous waters which means these Virgo sailors maintain a healthy level of skepticism alongside their mysticism.

Q> My two mentors (Professor and boss) have their Pluto conjunct my natal Sun. Now I am thinking about that dark side link…yeaa learn a lot 🙂

    I have my [email protected]º16’ Virgo, meaning what? – exactly conjunct a super massive black hole? How wonderful. I don’t really know what that means but it sounds crappy.
    Yes, I have been going through a period of suffering for 5-6 years now. Last 2 years intensively. But I don’t like to talk about it or put it that way because I would hate to sound like a martyr. All the emotional suffering really has a purpose – it cleans your heart and you learn a lot. I know I will be a better and a happier person at the end of it. It is like some intuitive knowing you know from the start of that descending process.
    You are also right about lack of boundaries, but this happens because you pick up other people’s emotions so easily. I am a magnet to energy vampires, but I have become aware of that just recently because giving out my energy and absorbing other people’s negative emotions used to be my normal mode of functioning. It was normal for me to feel drained after hanging out with almost everyone I know, while all of them would feel much happier and up-lifted than before our meeting. I needed a lot of me-time to recover. But I never thought there was something wrong with that, I never questioned it, it was a blind-spot, a part of my script. I had to learn to set boundaries and resist saving people and not feel responsible and guilty of other people’s feelings. It can be learned, that’s good.
    And about the “wrong uns”, you are right again. As soon as I became aware of that, I got myself a therapist because I believed that every person is my mirror. I have been working on myself for years now, I cleared tons of subconscious and scripted crap, I really know myself pretty well and I have truly grown and evolved. And what has happened with my relationships – I now attract guys who are even more screwed, like obsessive compulsive, borderline personalities, self-sabotages, and so on. I recognize them fast&easy, it is much easier for me to turn my back and walk away, but I still haven’t met anyone who is emotionally healthy and I am very sad about it. And I don’t understand why is that still happening if everyone is a mirror. Everyone is not a mirror. The more conscious I become, the worse potential partner I attract. I believe it is going to end one day, and I hope soon because I’ve had enough of suffering and broken heart.
