the purest of them all can get down and dirty like the rest of us. virgo, the archangel of the zodiac, is a bearer of truth and a practitioner in sanctity. it’s not easy perching atop that cold marble pedestal. sometimes it topples and the virgin is deflowered. but even when falling from that lofty height, she will glide ever so gently. like a feather from her wing sailing gracefully to the floor. the virgin’s usually got that bodice laced up pretty damn tight, but every now and then it rips! by accident of course, virgo (wink : )
the kumquat belongs to mercury, which is a planet of constriction. this is so because the size of the kumquat is essentially that of a constricted orange. due to it’s bright orange color, the kumquat is co-ruled by the sun.
