Virgo Artz

It is September.

 Virgo reigns from 22 August through 22 September. It is the sixth astrological sign in the zodiac.

Virgo is purity, innocence, maidens and fertility. Her name is Justice or Dike as some know her. She is the daughter of Zeus and Themis. Fair judgment and moral order is her domain; she rules over justice in the human carnal world. She was born a mortal and lived on Earth. Seeing that man was corrupt Zeus moved her up to Mount Olympus.

At her departure she issued this curse…

Behold what manner of race the fathers of the Golden Age left behind them! Far meaner than themselves! But you will breed a viler progeny! Verily wars and cruel bloodshed shall be unto men and grievous woe shall be laid upon them.
—Aratus, Phaenomena 123
                                           Justizia - Luca Giordano 
Dike is Lady Justice, the moral force in judicial systems. Have you not seen her? She is shown holding a scale in her left hand, where she measures the strength of a case’s support and opposition. She carries a double edged sword in her right hand, one sharp side for reason the other for justice and she wields it for or against both sides.

This week we shall share the Virgo Artz.
