The Ascendant Sign in Esoteric Astrology


(Artwork by Kagaya)


Two lights are seen—one bright and strong, the light of form; one faint and dim, the light of God. This light is distinguished by a waxing of one and the waning of the other. It differs from the light in Gemini.

Virgo represents the inner gestation and growth of the Soul force within each of us. This is the sign of pregnancy and on an esoteric level, Virgo is ruled by the Moon, Mother of all Forms. These forms of life and the Mother Principle which creates them, both shield and nurture, protect and prepare the Inner Light. The Mother gathers all the nutrients necessary to feed her unborn child and then, at the right moment in the cycle of evolution, the Child is born into the world.

The Soul purpose of a person with Virgo rising is to choose with profound discrimination the right methods, processes, techniques, that will allow his or her “Inner Child” (the Soul) to be born. The evolutionary stage of human development indicated by having Virgo on the ascendant is the awakening of our inner, subjective life. This is the quickening of the Soul’s Presence, but the consciousness of the Soul is yet to be born. This is the Virgo rising person’s real job! It will be then that Virgo’s may take his or her true place in the world and create a real sense of self-fulfillment be achieved. Look to the position of the Moon in your chart in order to find where such opportunities for nurturing and growth appear in your horoscope.

Two of the Rays work through Virgo: the Second and the Sixth. It is through the Second Ray that Virgo develops its orientation to Love and the necessary Wisdom which may carry that subjective life and its loving consciousness into the practical world of forms. The Sixth Ray of Devotion leads a person with Virgo rising to the Path by which he or she may cultivate the type of personal service to humanity which allows Soul purpose to flourish.
