Virgo is the sixth sign of the zodiac, a mutable earth sign. An important keyword for Virgo is service. Virgoans find people important, and often remain behind the scenes while the Leo's are taking the credit for the work the Virgo actually performed. They are interested in health and nutrition, and can become overly concerned with these matters to the extent of worrying. The ruling planet of Virgo is Mercury; the Mercury-ruled Gemini tends to see the forest and miss the trees, whereas Virgo sees the trees and misses the forest.

The Sanskrit name for this month is Kanya - the Maiden
MAHOE MUA - Virgin Pele. In Hawaiian mythology, is depicted by a woman as in Greek mythology, the mutable earthy sign of the Craftsman or Critic. The woman symbolizing Hawaii's MAHOE MUA is Pele, Hawaii's famous goddess of volcanoes, creator of Diamond Head, Haleakala and many other craters.

blows down bridges.

Native American Horoscope

Many Native American traditions teach that there are twelve Earth Personalities that make up the Earth Medicine Wheel. These are an earth-centered, rather than planet-based, kind of horoscope that gives us valuable information about our totem animal, our personality, and our spirit-task in life.
