Weaknesses of the goddess Virgo
A weakness of the goddess Virgo stems from her conscientious nature in whatever goddess she is associated with. Several goddesses have been given the honor of Goddess of Virgo.
The most ancient goddess associated with Virgo is Astraea or Justice. She is the daughter of Zeus and Themis. Astraea was sent to earth to settle justice between mankind and walk among them. Man became greedy and immoral. Astraea disillusioned with man’s mean nature ascended to the heavens to become the constellation Virgo. Her weaknesses or inability to overcome man’s basic nature forced her to flee from earth and her duties to justice.
The goddess Virgo carries a wheat sheaf in her hand. She has been associated with the Goddess of Harvest Demeter or Ceres. Her ability to control the seasons led to bountiful harvests annually until her daughter, Persephone, was taken to Hades. Ceres vowed to withhold any harvest until her daughter was returned. Zeus became angry and sent Ceres to Hades to retrieve Persephone. Ceres returned but for only six months out of the year. Her maternal weakness required her to return to Hades six months out of the year and as a result, no harvest or bounty is available during those six months.
The goddess of Virgo has been linked to Erigone. She was the daughter of Icarius. He gave the knowledge of wine to humans. Erigone discovered her father murdered by peasants that mistakenly thought Icarius poisoned them with wine. She committed suicide by hanging. The gods took pity on the family and restored their immortality in the constellations. Erigone became the constellation Virgo.
The goddess Virgo has been mentioned as Minerva the virgin roman goddess of poetry, wisdom and music. Many gods wooed this goddess and the ancient Parthenon was built in her honor. The Athenians gained favor from Minerva and modeled their civilization after her.
Tyche’s the goddess of fate has been associated with the Goddess of Virgo. She was unpredictable in nature and would falter either for the good or bad in mankind’s affairs. Her weakness was nemesis that kept a tight reign on Tyche’s generosity. The pair were often seen together, constantly battling for the upper hand.
Some psychics refer to themselves as Goddess of Virgo. This is not a reference to the zodiac sign that relates to the sixth sign of the zodiac, but instead a reference to the mythical goddess that predate them. Goddess of Virgo’s weakness in the psychic realm is that they will over use their power and become emotionally and spiritually fatigued by trying to cure the world. With the traits of the goddess Virgo they will refuse to turn anyone in need away and in doing so, they deplete their own spirit. In order for a Goddess of Virgo to avoid weakness, they should unplug from their devotion to help mankind and continue to focus on replenishing their spiritual needs.
Whether a mythological goddess of Virgo or a contemporary psychic goddess of Virgo, they are both limited by the weaknesses of their nature.
