Quiz: Which Virgin Asteroid Goddess Are You?
In Greek translations, the word virgin meant “one unto herself.” Similar to many words in English, the original meaning became lost as Western culture became more patriarchal in nature. With this evolution of language in mind, virginity actually means freedom, self-sufficiency, and wholeness.
I believe each of these goddesses speaks to an aspect of our own wholeness and virginity. Understanding these archetypes in an astrological context gives us important clues about how their archetypal energies show up in our lives and our soul patterning.
