Blessings of the Sun in Virgo


Olivia Robertson writes about the Constellation of Virgo: 
"Behold the Virgin holding her wheat ear, the star Spica! Above her, Bootes drives the wain around the Pole Star and by him are Virgo's loyal hounds, the Canes Venatici. Centaurus, half man, half horse, is below her hand, tamed by her gentleness. The Virgin shines above the sea monster Hydra, who bears on his mighty coils Corvus, the Prophetic Crow and Crater, the Mystic Cup. The Libran Goddess stands nearby, weighing Virgo's golden grain on her scales, while the harvest is protected by the rampant lion, Leo."
