Virgo : Myths and Legends
Virgo is the 6th sign of the zodiac, represented by the Greeks as a Virgin or 'maid'. Hesiod thought her the daughter of Jupiter and Themis, the Arcadian nymph whom the Romans and later Greeks associated with Libra, but that is just gossip - the Virgin may be Iustia, the daughter of Astraeus and Ancora, or Erigone, the daughter of Icarus, or even Apollo's daughter, Parthene, whose name means 'virgin'. She is Eve in Genesis who originally crushed the head of the Serpent, Scorpio.
The Mythology: Virgo represents the Goddess of Justice, with her scales represented by the nearby constellation of Libra. In another legend, Virgo represents Demeter, the Goddess of corn, and Spica represents the ear of corn.
