The mythology of Virgo:  Now, we will look into the Greek mythology of Virgo, the star maiden of the starry night, Astraea, ascended to the heavens to become the Goddess constellation, Virgo.

Astraea was the daughter of Astrareus and Eos; she is closely linked to the goddess Dike, whose father was Zeus, Dike was seen as a symbol of Justice in Greek mythology.

Astraea/Virgo is connected to Pandora and her box; Pandora is said to have opened her box and let out the many forms of injustice, dishonesty and abuse of resources and power we see on planet earth today. Because of this, the Gods had to leave the earth plane; as it is said during the golden age of humanity, the gods once dwelled here.

Virgo/ Astraea is said to be the last goddess to leave planet earth to become the constellation Virgo; Virgo also has links to Persephone, the daughter of Demeter who had to live for a period time each year- winter to be with Hades.

According to legend Virgo/ Astraea is waiting for the earth to become perfect again, so she can return Virgo/ Astraea back to Purity, Innocence and Precision. Virgo is associated with the 8th Tarot card, Justice.
