The archetypal energies of Virgo and Libra come together through the asteroid Astraea, known as the Star Maiden who was on earth during a period of great harmony.
Astraea is associated with peaceful relationships and finding enjoyment in daily routines. She is an asteroid of simplicity and calm, yet desires to serve and support a harmonic balance between self and others. As the earth's energy changed to more drama, chaos, and war, Astraea was the last mythological being to leave the planet; she stayed as long as possible to be of service and to find equilibrium. Her energy could not handle the strife that was unfolding, so she left earth and became the Virgo constellation.
In your natal astrology chart, Astraea reveals where you search for justice and balance, as well as where you need to be aware of becoming a martyr or being out of touch with reality. You may stay too long in a situation that is beyond your control, or you may be pushed to make an exit strategy to set yourself free.
