Virgo, the virgin, represents God's promise to our first parents that a virgin would bear a Seed—a God-man who would crush the serpent's head. Thus Virgo symbolizes affliction due to believing the serpent, as well as hope through the promised Seed.
This month Virgo is visible all night long. Mars, the red planet, is now in Virgo and very bright. Together, they are easy to find in the southern sky.
Mars is thought to represent the god of war, and so Virgo and Mars together remind us of the great war against God. In this war, mankind devises all kinds of philosophies and religions in order to shut out the one true God revealed in the Bible. This war is the reason the world continues on its downward path of conflict, disease, political corruption, poverty, and broken relationships. Only through the promised Seed, Jesus Christ, can we obtain peace, healing, and blessing. His sacrifice and resurrection destroyed the power of the serpent over those who place their faith in him. He gives them power to overcome death and to live a clean life.
