Key Qualities: Knowing, Celebration, Completion
“Spica speaks to the deepest part of us, bringing our depths up to the surface, so that we may know beyond doubt that we come from love and return to love in every cycle of existence, whether that is a lifetime or a breath. It takes us into the stillness of our being, the knowing that is beyond knowledge. It guides us to acceptance of the essential oneness of all life. There is a natural response to arriving at the knowing of oneness which we might call celebration. It is as if the burden of the illusion of separation, in being released, also allows a joy to bubble up within us, and that joy seeks expression.” - from heaven on earth.co
“In the days when all we knew about our world was whatever we could see, when we stepped outside and looked up at the heavens, and beheld the vast array of stars, it was (and still is) such an uplifting experience. In time, as people began to notice that cycles in our lives coincided with certain patterns of the motions of the heavenly bodies, and this was the birth of Astrology. One might say that we have projected our meaning of life onto the objective stars in the skies – and one must ask oneself why did people do this? And why has it lasted over thousands of years and is still being practiced today? For anything to stand the test of time, there most definitely is something deeply relevant to it in our lives.
As people observed the stars and earthly phenomena, they collated experience and noted down about 30 of the most brightest or most influential stars in the sky. One of those stars is the star called Spica. Astronomically we know that it is a binary star system, but I will be referring to it as “a” star.
Spica is the bright bluish star in the wheat stalks held by the Lady in the Sky – the constellation Virgo. It is regarded by all sky cultures as one of the most positive stars in the sky. In most cultures, the constellation Virgo was seen as the Goddess. In ancient Egypt, particularly the later periods, it was seen as the Goddess Isis, and the star Spica represented or embodied her son, Horus. In later Christian traditions, the constellation was associated with the Virgin Mary and Spica with the Christ-child (there is much research into the possibility that Spica was the biblical Star of Bethelehem). Others have the constellation representing the Goddess with Spica the star in Her hand or upholding some form of produce of the earth (most usually wheat).” - from spicaastrology .com
