Women born under this star are often portrayed as precise, reserved and cool. We forget the ancients saw her differently!
Long ago, virginity was not equated with abstinence. Isis, the Egyptian Moon Goddess, Great Mother, and Virgin Goddess, was married and bore a son. She was worshiped as the source of Egypt's abundance.
Perpetually renewed, she was forever virgin. Inspiring erotic love, she generated fertility in animals and humans, and caused crops to grow. Demeter, the Greek goddess of harvest and abundance, and Ceres, her Roman counterpart, played similar roles. With the advent of patriarchal religion, Woman was tumbled from her ancient throne.
In this image, Virgo is shown as the Goddess of Abundance. Her border expresses her deep connections with the moon, harvest and fertility. It shows her natural progression from girl, to woman, to lover, to mother, and finally to Wise Woman sharing her secrets with a child.
Celebrate the abundance of her feminine spirit! (Story of sign on back of card.)
