Virgo Ascendant - Profile and Characteristics of Virgo Rising

Category: 

Virgo rising denotes a quiet, reserved, retiring, and receptive disposition. The fate depends upon opportunity. The native, although lacking in determinative ambition, is persevering and ingenious, but he rarely dominates his environment or moves entirely unaided and helped by others. This sign gives more than the usual amount of selfishness common to the negative signs, but it is often counteracted by sympathy for the troubles of others and by the sense of justice which the native
develops when the intelligence awakens. He is very orderly, critical, systematic and often self-centred, and is rarely understood on first acquaintance. The native thrives best in a business atmosphere, and generally prefers scheming and the exercise of his ingenuity to hard work ; although never lazy or afraid to work, he prefers to use his wits whenever they will serve, and to improve upon the discoveries or inventions of others.

TIP:

The second decanate of Virgo rising awakens the independence of    the nature, and makes the native thoroughly practical and well adapted for all business pursuits ; it also gives some artistic inclinations, or musical ability. The fate is largely governed by the social element or the political world, in which distinction is generally sought and obtained. Wealth is acquired through industry, thrift, and by adopting practical common-sense methods in business organisation.

The third decante of Virgo rising accentuates all the business and practical tendencies of the sign Virgo, and adds intuition to the mental qualifications for acquiring wealth and where business enterprise is concerned. It is a fortunate decanate for the fate, and only affects the general disposition by adding determination to all the Virgo characteristics. There is usually considerable artistic ability.

When the first decanate of Virgo ascends, the ruling planet is Mercury ; the fate depends largely upon the condition of the sixth house, or the aspects of Mercury, and also considerably upon planets rising, if any.
       
When the second decanate of Virgo ascends study the position of the planet Saturn and the mid-heaven, also the planet that Saturn afflicts ; if afflicting Mercury the native is very unfortunate.

When the third decanate of Virgo ascends the planet Venus and her distance from Mercury should be considered; the nearer these planets are the better will be the fortunes ; if in exact conjunction great prosperity is denoted. Note also the second house.

The signs CANCER, LEO, and VIRGO belong to the preservative and maturing or Maternal Trinity. The keynote of such natives will generally be emotion, and progression through the moral sentiments.
