Sun

* Virgo, the virgin
People born when Virgo is rising are above middle stature. The upper part of the head is much more developed than the lower, the weak chin, showing lack of will and the large brain indicating greatness of intellect, being therefore earmarks of the Virgo. The face is thin, the complexion sallow, the hair brown and the eyes hazel or grey. The feet are small, the toes turn inwards and give these people a peculiar labored walk. Virgo people are very quick and active in youth, they learn with facility, and do not work hard for knowledge; they seem to breathe it in without an effort. They acquire linguistic and elocutionary powers most readily, are fluent writers but are often cynical, cold and unforgiving when they have been injured. They are extremists in their food, and make hygiene a fad; they often fancy that they have every imaginable disease, because Virgo is the sixth sign and has a certain affinity with the sixth house, denoting health the and disease. Mercury, the ruler, is also exalted here and gives pronouncement of all the good which otherwise might be expected from the Sun. Virgo people are slender in youth, but when the Sun of Life passes the Meridian and begins to throw its shadows toward the East, we find in them a tendency toward corpulence of body, particularly of that part ruled by Virgo, namely, the abdomen. They neglect to take exercise, and naturally on this account a sluggish condition of the intestines may set in which retains the poisons in the body and robs life of its joys, making one indifferent. In this fact lies the greatest danger of the Virgo people. Once they get into the rut of sickness, they actually "enjoy" poor health. They love to talk over their symptoms with other people, and they resent any thought or suggestion given to them that they are not sick, or that they can get well. The presence of Saturn in Virgo, or the sixth house, accentuates this tendency in the very highest degree, and therefore it is an almost infallible sign that the native will have or be subject to chronic illness, the nature of the disease being denoted by the aspect, and the afflicting planets. In order to deal successfully with Virgo people when they have once become subject to disease, and get them out of it at all, it is necessary to be firm almost to the verge of cruelty. But though one may seem cruel in enforcing upon them the regime that is necessary to bring them away from themselves, this is really the greatest kindness that can be shown, for once these people are in the grip of sickness they stubbornly refuse to let go; they will resort to the most cunning, even childlike schemes to excite sympathy, particularly from strangers, and they will represent any effort to show them that they are not helpless invalids. At the very slightest suggestion of a hopeful nature, they sometimes lost their temper in the most unwarranted manner. But when at last they are given the deaf ear by everybody, when people who are in their immediate environment can be persuaded to show them no sympathy, then they may come to themselves. They need a shock to bring them out and away from their condition. And until they get that they never can be cured. The Virgos make splendid nurses, if they can keep from taking on the conditions of the patient. The Virgo people never can bear to see blood shed or touch dead things. They feel bodily injury to others more that harm done to themselves, and are in fact splendidly described by the word "chicken hearted."

* Virgo
Virgo rules the abdominal region, the large and small intestines, the lower lobes of the liver, and the spleen, therefore afflictions in Virgo produce peritonitis, tapeworm, malnutrition, interference with the absorption of the chyle, typhoid fever, cholera, and appendicitis.
Max Heindel. Pathogenic effects of the twelve signs
* Sun in Virgo
You are nothing if not compassionate. Interested in serving others, you worry about their welfare. You like to take care of everything, and are always redeeming, salvaging, and restoring. You believe in conservation in all things. You find yourself through response and service to others, to life.
Planet in Sign
* Sun in Virgo
THE SUN IN VIRGO This is combination of the solar, mercurial and Sixth House influences. It shows the successful middleman between the producer and consumer, subtle, extremely quick to see what will work to his advantage in the promotion of business, pleasant and sociable, agreeable to all from whom he expects to gain, but domineering to employees and fellow workers; a smooth talker but not necessarily insincere; he merely looks out for number one. The Sun in Virgo makes good chemists, nurses and doctors, NOT SURGEONS BUT DRUG-DOCTORS; they are firm believers in medicine and lots of it.

* 5° Virgo
UNIMAGINATIVE. 5° Virgo denotes one who may be very persevering and meticulous, but who seldom has humor in his makeup. This is a critical degree.
Traditional Natal Degrees Interpretation - Keane, 1967
* 5° Virgo
A man lies dreaming in the shade of an Irish countryside; his dreams bring to him the playful little people.
Sabian Symbols
* Sextile Sun-Moon
A special affinity for old people and for children, plus an innate love of animals, the helpless, and the underdog. An inner vision coupled with the ability to see the "Big" picture often finds you working as a go-between with others.
Aspects of Natal Planets
* Sextile Sun-Neptune
A born mother to any and all forms of life. Very compassionate and attentive (aware of) the needs of others. Spiritual ideas and concepts are a way of life here. There is deep appreciation, even love for, movies, big ideas, themes. Visionary director.
Aspects of Natal Planets
* Sextile Sun-Moon
The good aspects of the Sun and Moon make for general success in life, health, fair financial fortunes, good home conditions with faithful friends and esteem in the community; they favor a rise in life because of the person's innate ability, which either gains for him the recognition of people in a position to help him rise, or impels him to carve his own way.
Planet Aspects-M. Heindel, prepared G. Pentidis
* Sextile Sun-Neptune
favors the possibility of developing spiritual faculties, for Neptune intensifies the higher vibrations in the aura and as some express themselves best through music these aspects make them unusually sensitive to echoes from the heaven world, which is the realm of tone. Many people with these configurations hear the harmony of the spheres and if Mercury, the lower octave of Neptune, gives the requisite dexterity they become musicians of a high inspirational nature. In others it breeds a love of the occult which leads them into the higher life, but they usually approach it from the intellectual standpoint as psychic investigators. A few live the life and obtain first-hand knowledge.

Moon

* Moon in Cancer
You can sense and understand the mood and feelings of others, and are excellent at counseling and nursing. You are quite emotional, and have a natural sense of that which pleases, knowing the mood of the crowd. You can be overly protective (or protected), but are good at parenting and creating a home. Quite domestic.
Planet in Sign
* Moon in Cancer
THE MOON IN CANCER gives a disposition which is kind, sociable and sympathetic, but indolent and averse to effort whether physical, moral or mental. These people love to drift with the tide and only bestir themselves when under the whiplash of necessity. They are often sensitive to physic conditions, especially if the Moon is aspected by Neptune or Uranus and the nature of the aspect determines whether the influence is favorable or unfavorable. This position also gives a love of home and the comforts to be obtained there. It promotes the digestion and consequently the health if the Moon is well-aspected. If afflicted it has a tendency to give digestive troubles.

* 1° Cancer
OUTGOING. 1° Cancer denotes one who is outgoing, or whose work or production is for others. Music and literature have some bearing in this degree.
Traditional Natal Degrees Interpretation - Keane, 1967
* 1° Cancer
A man upon a ship stands impatiently with a flag in his hands, ready to run it up in place of the one now flown.
Sabian Symbols
* Conjunction Moon-Neptune
You find the past, tradition, and all that is historical very romantic, and the ideal world of yesteryear seems to beckon and call. You are most imaginative when it comes to anything spiritual, or psychological -- pertaining to the psyche. Others find you entrancing and always able to draw them into your world of images and dreams. You can inspire them with spiritual ideals. No one has any doubt that you are a high floater -- a full-blown dreamer, complete with built-in psychic abilities and probably given to visions.
Aspects of Natal Planets
* Conjunction Moon-Neptune
indicates the same strong psychic faculties as the good aspects, particularly if Neptune is placed in the psychic sign Cancer. Those who have been norm with the good configurations of Neptune during the fourteen years when it was in the airy scientific sign Gemini are now conquering the air and perfecting scientific inventions which will make us marvel, but the children who have been born under favorable configurations during the fourteen years Neptune has been going through the psychic sign Cancer are growing up around us as a band of mystics and when they have reached mature years they will astonish us with their spiritual insight and power. Among other things they will develop the soul of music in a hitherto unprecedented manner.

Mercury

* Mercury in Virgo
You have a fine mind and a great appetite for detail. You appreciate minute differences and distinctions. A craftsman with an innate critical sense, you are always full of suggestions. Your careful, conservative mind wants to salvage every last thing. You possess a love for detail and trivia. Quick-minded.
Planet in Sign
* Mercury in Virgo
MERCURY IN VIRGO is at the zenith of his power for there he is exalted, consequently when well-aspected it gives a clear, logical, scientific mind, eloquence and the ability to express oneself fluently in a number of languages. It gives the person a comprehensive, discriminating outlook upon life, his conclusions are usually practical and to the point because he also, like the Taurian Mercury, looks before he leaps. In short this characteristic is in a degree true of all the earthy signs. When Mercury is afflicted in Virgo it makes the man irritable, petulant and selfish, always looking for flaws in everything he comes across. People with Mercury in Virgo make excellent dietitians and chemists. They also have an unusual dexterity.

* 20° Virgo
CONSISTENT. 20° Virgo denotes one who takes a stand and remains firm. A writer's degree. A teller of tales.
Traditional Natal Degrees Interpretation - Keane, 1967
* 20° Virgo
A group of old-fashioned automobiles comprise a caravan of settlers on the move; a fresh enthusiasm marks the party.
Sabian Symbols
* Square Mercury-Uranus
You may have trouble with any ideas that are new and different. Your more conservative way of thinking and expressing yourself goes against all that is radical and new. Thoughts and concepts that break with tradition may be a hassle for you -- a constant headache. You prefer that conversations and communications stay on the accepted paths and become irritated when they stray from what you expect. You have a tendency to lose your temper with little warning.
Aspects of Natal Planets
* Square Mercury-Pluto
Getting personal with you is a real mistake, for it always manages to plunge you into turmoil. You resent probing on the part of others, yet are fascinated by behind-the-scenes and so-called "secret" information. You may prefer not to think about anything below the surface, but even this is not a constant, and this inner conflict produces more than its share of tension.
Aspects of Natal Planets
* Trine Mercury-Saturn
You are a heavy-duty thinker and serious student, always ready to work an idea through, reducing it to what is essential. You enjoy mental effort and discipline, and work long and hard at whatever you put your mind to. You could present or teach religious and philosophical ideas, anything where substance and content are at issue.
Aspects of Natal Planets
* Square Mercury-Uranus
Mercury in square or opposition to Uranus is the hall-mark of the true crank or anarchist with extreme ideas to tear down the social structure and undertake a radical reform without the ability to build up something better. People with these configurations are given to ranting and raving in public and their language is usually as cruel as the measures they advocate. Whatever ability they possess is usually turned to an erratic purpose and therefore they are ostracized and disliked wherever they go. They are often forced to make sudden changes to escape the consequences of their erratic conduct.
Planet Aspects-M. Heindel, prepared G. Pentidis
* Trine Mercury-Saturn
acts as a brake upon the flighty mind and gives it a seriousness, depth and concentration which is of inestimable value in life. The forethought and profound reasoning ability indicated by these aspects insure success in whatever vocation the person may pursue. The patient persistence which permits no temporary failure to stand in the way of ultimate success, also caution and diplomacy make such people invincible in the long run. Therefore they generally become prominent in connection with some serious enterprise such as secret societies, the church or even in politics. They are in demand for high positions where a steady hand is required on the helm. But they do not usually shine for they are very quiet, subdued and serious in their manner and demeanor. They are absolutely honest, hence they make the very finest judges obtainable.
