The long journey of the misunderstood maiden.
Today marks the day that the Sun leaves the lion behind and moves into the constellation Virgo. Although many call Virgo the virgin, I prefer to call her the maiden. It removes all the uptight sexual mores associated with virginity and all that. The Sun takes 44 days to pass through Virgo, longer than any other constellation. I guess she’s friendlier than the other signs.
