Full Moon Reflection in Virgo

Keynote:   “I am the mother and the child, I, God, I matter am”.

The sign of Virgo is of significant importance in the zodiac as it symbolizes the negative pole of matter to the positive substance of spirit. Virgo shapes the goal of evolutionary process as it shields, nurtures and finally reveals the hidden spiritual kernel of the Christ life, fostering its growth. Virgo’s qualities are beautifully summarized in “Esoteric Astrology” (Page 260) where we read:

“Virgo symbolizes depths, darkness, quiet and warmth … it is the place of slow, gentle and yet powerful crises and periodic developments which … lead to light … Virgo stands for the ‘womb of time’ wherein God’s Plan is slowly matured”.

Virgo is both the “mother principle” and the “cosmic mother” whose influence has developed humanity’s understanding toward the highest ideals of guardianship, receptivity, compassion, endurance and mercy. The symbolic essence of this sign can be seen through various belief systems, which include such archetypes as ‘Mother Mary’ and ‘Eve’ from the west, and ‘Quan Yin’ the goddess of mercy from the east.

For humanity to achieve its legacy in our present solar system, the Christ child must be brought to birth and nurtured. So who is to do the birthing? The Tibetan Master indicates that we all do, as he writes:

“…know that you yourself have said the first word as the soul, descending into the womb of time and space in a far and distant past. The time has now come when you can, if you so choose, proclaim your identity with both divine aspects – matter and spirit, the Mother and the Christ”.   (Esoteric Astrology Page 284/5)

In examining what constitutes matter mentioned in Virgo’s keynote, we are led into realms which are infinite and have no end. Indeed the whole Universe consists of matter and is in reality the nature of energy in its many different forms and forces.

When the force of spirit has begun to infiltrate matter, its infiltration raises the vibratory rate of the whole. Emotion-desire has been transmuted into love-aspiration, oriented to the soul. In Virgo the divine purpose of the Mother is to protect and nurture the Christ principle, and fully reveal it through redeemed matter.
