Origin of Virgo during Evolution

Virgo: The Cultivator

Virgo is the sixth Sign of the Zodiac. However, Virgo does not only come sixth in the cycle of a year. Also, she emerges as the sixth Sign in the course of the history of mankind. That’s because she is the Cultivator who developed after the Hunter (Aries), Gatherer (Taurus), Nomad (Gemini), Settler (Cancer) and the Ruler (Leo) who now is in need of a competent right hand. That’s how Virgo the Cultivator emerged.

Required qualities of the Cultivator:

In every hierarchy, there has to be someone who serves the realm. Moreover, for every problem, there has to be someone who is a tinkerer; gathering and combining all the information to solve a problem. For example, the particular problem of shortage of food. For this particular problem, this someone had to not only have the capability of solving the problem of planting a seed – so that something could grow, but also make preparations, plan, array, ration, economize and separate the chaff from the wheat.

To do all that work and not give into running away from the task the Homo Sapiens had to develop a strong sense of responsibility and to do all that work successfully he had to be strict, diligent and detail-oriented while still trying to structure and overlook the process. That’s where the energy of Virgo comes in 23.000 years ago when first traces of farming were found in the Mideast.  She is the first Sign of the Zodiac who thinks about the future and with that comes wisdom. But also anxieties and worries and with anxieties and worries come sobriety. Then again these features brought us agriculture and therefore laid the groundwork for the civilizations we know today.  

The Cultivator today:

The Cultivator is everywhere because there is always a need for a maid-of-all-work.
