You and your star!
“To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven ; A time to be born, and a time to die, a time to gather up that which is planted, a time to love, and a time to hate, a time of war, and a time of peace.”
_Eccl. Ill, v’s 1. 2. 8.
"He telleth the number of the stars. He calleth them by names"
_Chapter CXLVII, v.4
The zodiacal influence for the month of September in general. Its effect on the character, disposition, finance and health of persons born in this period of the year.
The Zodiacal Sign of Virgo commences on August 21ˢᵗ, but for seven days being overlapped by the “cusp” of the previous Sign, it does not come into its power until on or about August.28ᵗʰ. From this date onwards it is in full strength until September 20ᵗʰ and is then for seven days gradually losing force on account of becoming overlapped by the “cusp” of the incoming Sign of Libra.
People born in this period of the year, namely from August 21ˢᵗ to September 20ᵗʰ and in the “cusp” to September 28ᵗʰ, are as a rule successful in life.
They possess keen intellects with wonderfully retentive memories. They are cautious and discriminating about those they associate with and as a rule are not easily imposed upon or deceived.
They analyze and reason things closely; they make good critics, generally too much so for their own good or happiness. They notice things out of place quickly and have excellent taste about their homes.
They are not as a rule originators, but they carry out with success any planar work that appeals to them, or things which others have failed to finish. But whatever the thing is that occupies their attention they exercise great concentration and will never rest until they have carried out their object.
They have unusual respect for rank and position; they are zealous supporters of the law and the law’s decision. They make excellent lawyers and debaters, but they tend towards supporting precedents more than originating any new ordinance.
They succeed well in scientific research and in business, but more from their steady, industrious persistency, will power and determination than anything else.
They are inclined to become wrapped up in themselves and their own ideas and appear to become selfish in the close pursuit of their aims.
They have always “their wits about them” and are generally self-possessed and self-reliant.
They are more capable of going to extremes in good and evil than any other type. If they develop a love of money they will stick at nothing to acquire it.
They can adapt themselves to almost any pursuit in life.
In their inner love nature, they are the most difficult of all to understand, the very best and worst of men and women being born in this part of the year.
In their early years nearly all are intensely virtuous and pure-minded, as might be expected being born in the Sign of Virgo—the Virgin.
If they change, they do so with a vengeance and become the exact reverse, but on account of their inborn respect of the law and their natural cleverness, they succeed in covering up their tendencies better than any other class. They have often a tendency to indulge in drugs or drink unless they have got control over themselves.
In health, as a rule, they are lees liable to disease than persons born in any other part of the year, yet the strange thing about them is that they are always imagining themselves to have every illness that they may happen to read about in the public press.
They are very refined in their tastes as far as food is concerned, and must have things nicely put before them or they will lose their appetites.
They are extremely sensitive to their surroundings, the least in harmony or annoyance affects their nervous system and upsets their digestive organs.
They are very liable to sudden internal derangement in the intestines and often have extremes of constipation, varied by dysentery or colic.
They have a tendency to have trouble with the lungs and to suffer from neuritis in the shoulders and arms.
As this Sign of the Zodiac appears to be intimately associated with the solar-plexus, people born in this part of the year need sunlight and fresh air more than any other class of individual.
A person born in this period will experience the vital principle of the Sun’s rays passing through the Zodiacal Sign of Virgo, endowing them with the characteristics pertaining to the negative side of the planet Mercury.
Thus, their personal vibrations are strongest on the material plane, and their views of life as a general rule are realistic, analytical, sceptical, shrewd and observant. They are not easily imposed upon or deceived. Their judgment is usually sound and the discriminative faculty developed to an extraordinary degree. They show due appreciation of order, system and discipline, out at the same time do not care to submit themselves to such things, preferring to use their originality and ingenuity than to follow the beaten track. They will often champion an unpopular cause rather than go with the crated.
Being excellent judges of human nature, they can generally rely upon their first impressions. They are, however, somewhat too introspective and unless they keep this tendency well under control they are likely to become hypochondriacs in later life. Profound respect for money is found in persons born in this Sign of Virgo—they often set too high a value upon what it represents.
As literary and art critics they often excel, for their memory is good, they are rapid readers and quick to note any weak point. Through their untiring industry, clearness of vision and exceptional accuracy, they generally achieve success, though they may have to work unrecognized in obscurity for many years, but sooner or later, as a rule, they attain prominence.
Their affectionate nature is very intense but not of the emotional, demonstrative order, but once their love is awakened they are extremely loyal but inclined to be jealous. Their views are fixed and positive and when once their mind is made up, not all the preaching in the world will move them one iota. There is often a tendency to pay too much attention to dress and personal appearance.
Their will and determination being more or less strong, they are not easily discouraged, and by perseverance are likely to attain their ends. The intellect is essentially progressive, but they as a rule pay too much attention to detail. They should endeavour to cultivate the appreciative faculties, be more tolerant, patient and more merciful in their criticism if they wish to make their life a well rounded out success.
Persons born in the Sign of Virgo are serious and thoughtful; they always desire to acquire knowledge and may often be found in constant attendance at lectures and classes.
They enjoy listening to good speakers and have themselves a ready command of language.
A curious thing about persons born in this period of the year is that they always remain young and do not show their age.
They are irritable and quick tempered over little things, but they hate any form of bloodshed and are good in negotiation and arbitration.
Persons born in Virgo are mentally very high strung and worry seems to affect them more than any other class. The solar plexus and digestive organs areas a rule delicate and unless care is taken with dirt they often suffer from duodenal ulcers. Light plain food, plenty of pure water, fresh air, sun baths and amore than ordinary amount of sleep and rest, generally set these people back on their feet.
In matters of finance this is a favourable part of the year to be born in. It gives good business ability, a careful frugal nature, not one easily imposed on by others. It gives favourable conditions for investing in houses, lands and the exploiting of such things.
MARRIAGE, UNIONS, PARTNERSHIPS
Persons born in Virgo will find their most likely chance of success in marriage, unions or partnerships with those born in their own Sign August 21ˢᵗ to September 20ᵗʰ, Second House of the Earth Triplicity, December 21ˢᵗ to January 20ᵗʰ, Third House of the Earth Triplicity, or April 20ᵗʰ to May 20ᵗʰ, First House of the Earth Triplicity, and in the seven days “cusps'* at the end of each of these periods, also persons born in the part of the year the exact opposite of their own, in this case February to about the middle of March.
