Venus in Virgo

Virgo is a sign that is often misunderstood in our culture. The images that we have of Virgo, particularly Venus in Virgo, are the spinster, the chaste woman, and the celibate. If we go back to Greek mythology, though, we find the sign Virgo represented by the vestal virgins. The vestal virgins knew the secrets of how to awaken the kundalini energies within the body and were knowledgeable about Tantric practices. When Venus is in Virgo, we have an opportunity to see how we are manifesting our sexual energy. Are we repressing it, denying our own needs? Are we in touch with the desire to make our sexuality part of our spiritual path?
