Virgo and what she is ...
I have been associating myself with Virgo since reading “Romeo and Juliet” and came across my name.
“I’ll say yon grey is not the morning’s eye; ‘Tis but the pale reflex of Cynthia’s brow.”Act III Scene V
Shakespeare uses Cynthia in place of Diana, the Roman Goddess of Virginity and the Hunt.I was haunted by this association for many years yet I now embrace this literary find and the connection I, as the barer of the name, have with history.
“…. Traditionally regarded as representing a maiden or goddess associated with the harvest.” Canadian Oxford Dictionary
I am using Virgo as the “virgin” and Field of Fortune is taking place in the spring.There maybe a discrepancy here but I see it more as a beginning and an end.The beginning is with spring in all her virginal beauty and hope for the future.In the end is autumn with Virgo and the harvest.The middle of course is the growth of what you sowed.
