Virgo Decan 2 ~ Sep 3 to 13 (10º-20º)

Virgo decan 2 is ruled by Venus. The Sun navigates through the constellations of the Lion, the Great Ship, the Great Bear and the Hunting Hounds from September 3 to September 12. Most of the stars here have a Saturn/Venus nature, which is going to make them all rather bittersweet. Saturn gives Venus a bleeding heart, but it can also make this person somewhat of a masochist.

Virtuous in Shame & Great Stalkers

Virgo decan 2 can push people away and then wonder why those people sometimes stay away. They seem to need to test their partner’s backbones and push them to the limits. Only the strongest will stick around, if there is something worth staying for otherwise their partners could be masochists themselves.

The Persephone myth then, turns up here, just as  in Virgo decan 1, but becoming even richer and darker. This Venus ruled decan is more like Babylonian Istar, the goddess of love and war. Talented Virgo decan 2’s will attract powerful Plutonic mates, because they are the only people who can handle their prickly and temperamental side. Low vibration Virgo decan 2’s will just attract co-dependant, hypercritical and abusive partners who stay with them because they are too lazy or insecure to leave. This of course breeds resentment and a whole lot of blame and victimisation on both sides.

  1. Rachel, I thin k you;re right. Etruscan society was extremely family orientated and they were into pairing and monogamy.
    “The apparent promiscuous revelry has a spiritual explanation. Swaddling and Bonfante (among others) explain that depictions of the nude embrace, or symplegma, “had the power to ward off evil”, as did baring the breast, which was adopted by western civilization as an apotropaic device, appearing finally on the figureheads of sailing ships as a nude female upper torso. It is also possible that Greek and Roman attitudes to the Etruscans were based on a misunderstanding of the place of women within their society. In both Greece and Republican Rome, respectable women were confined to the house and mixed-sex socialising did not occur. Thus the freedom of women within Etruscan society could have been misunderstood as implying their sexual availability. It is worth noting that a number of Etruscan tombs carry funerary inscriptions in the form “X son of (father) and (mother)”, indicating the importance of the mother’s side of the family.”

    I have old friends in Umbria, Italy, whose land has an Etruscan burial chamber and tunnels running under it. I was lucky enough to go ito them – the tunnels went into a deep valley with an olive grove reputedly 1000 yrs old. The tunnels were scary! Pitch black mostly and the entrance full of dead bats covered in spider webs like something from Raiders of the Lot Ark.

  2. I would personally say that the healthiest expression of mind and body which the new agers are trying to achieve, is simply found by looking east 🙂
    Kung fu, karate, etc etc..
    THe west will always try to surpass and steal what they cannot call their own, and corrupt it in the process
