In astrology the astrological signs represent twelve equal segments or divisions of the zodiac. According to astrological beliefs, celestial phenomena reflect or govern human activity on the principle of "as above, so below", so that the twelve signs at the same time are held to represent twelve basic personality types or characteristic modes of expression.[2] The scientific community generally considers astrology as a pseudoscience or superstition.[3][4] ; yet despite this, belief in astrology remains widespread.[5][6][7][8] Hand-coloured version of the anonymous Flammarion woodcut (1888). ...

Mythology

According to one interpretation[citation needed], the Virgo constellation depicts Astraea, the virgin daughter of the god Zeus and the goddess Themis. Astraea was known as the goddess of justice, and was identified as this constellation due to the presence of the scales of justice (Libra) nearby, and supposedly ruled the world with her wise ways until mankind became so callous that she returned to the skies, disgusted. Virgo is also indentified with Persephone, daughter of Demeter (goddess of agriculture and guardian of marriage). Persephone was the goddess of innocence and purity, then later on became the Queen of the Underworld, when she was abruptly snatched away by Hades. In Greek mythology, Astraea (star-maiden) was a daughter of Zeus and Themis or of Eos and Astraeus. ... In Roman times, Vestal Virgins were strictly celibate or they were punished by death. ...
