Virgo Decan 3

Virgo decan 3 is ruled by Mercury. The Sun sails through the Lion, the Air Pump, the Great Ship, the Cup and the Great Bear from September 13 to 22. Here we find the famous sharp minds, researchers, perfectionists and organisers. There are some harsh and unfortunate stars here associated with natural disasters and death alongside the holy grail and the ships bellowing sails. It is fitting that this decan of Virgo contains such sharp contrasts since it is ruled by Mercury the mediator between the earth and the underworld. It’s very black and white here.

Sacred Prostitutes & Skeptics

The unfortunate influence probably comes as a result of our Virgo’s not paying attention to natural law and working themselves into the ground. If one does not take control of regulating oneself, then something from the outside will do it in a more dramatic way, similar to the effects of a Uranus transit. Mercury ruled Virgo decan 3 live on their nerves. They burn a lot of calories just worrying! Their mind is so white hot you can sometimes see quicksilver flashing behind their eyeballs. The problem with having such a strong mind is that their belief program then controls everything. A skeptical Virgo will be very hard to rewire and some find it really hard to trust their intuition, even though they actually have a very fine prophetic ability.

  3. Here we go again, yet another site degrading the Virgo into nothing more than just a grunt follower and a nobody. What is with this? You had some accuracy, then it all fell down. I’m a supposed ‘Decan 3’ and I would never work for anyone but myself. So much for being the IT guy, right?

    Also sacred prostitutes – really? How insulting…

    Oh well. Can’t blame you. Virgo seems to be the sign that just sucks all over.
