Results of South Node in Virgo

Past Life & Roots

As Ketu signifies past life and roots of the soul, its placement in Virgo indicates that the main activities revolved around the significances of the given zodiac sign.

Virgo is the 6th sign of the zodiac belt and signifies precision, service, attention to details, perfection, criticism, litigation, disputes, strategic thinking, complex analysis, etc.

This combination also shows that the characteristics of Virgo such as criticism, attention to details, down to earth nature, and perfectionism were dominant in these natives.

Regarding main activities in their past lives, there are various possibilities which are related to the 6th zodiac sign Virgo. More specifically, the 6th zodiac sign governs activities related to service, litigation, science, and even war.

Additionally, the activities also could have possibly included activities related to strategy, complex analysis, and solving mysteries using practical data.

As the 6th sign signifies obstacles, the past lives of these natives were full of trials, challenges, and opposition.

Whether they experienced good results out of the above-mentioned significances and used their talents and characteristics in a pious way can be determined by the dignity of Mercury, which is the host and guide to South Node Ketu in Virgo.

Accordingly, if Mercury is dignified, it indicates that there were various positive experiences in the past lives of individuals with this set of combinations.

It shows that they had a lot of persistence, resistance, and durability and were, therefore, successfully able to overcome adversities, challenges, opposition, and other kinds of obstacles.

In fact, their main activity involved overcoming adversities which actually favored them and were major stepping stones towards success.

Each time they had overcome an obstacle, not only that they achieved a milestone but also became wiser and stronger which enabled them to conquer even greater heights.

As Virgo is ruled by Mercury, which is the planet of intellect, it indicates that they were especially strategic, wise, and clever which enabled them to fulfill their karmic tasks more effectively and efficiently.

Not only that, but it also helped them to overcome challenges more easily. They had exceptional attention to detail which enabled them to increase their efficiency in their tasks.

Alternatively, the 6th zodiac sign Virgo also shows that they were extremely efficient team players, organizers, and managers. They were the type of leaders who maximally involved themselves in their main activity instead of letting others do everything for them.

As they were especially service-oriented people, they cared about every member of their team and therefore attained a great amount of respect and admiration from their employees or teammates with whom they conquered great heights in their past lives.

Because of their durability and stress resistance combined with compassion and strategic thinking, they were able to lead their people very effectively. As Mercury also governs communication, it shows that they were good communication which is the foundation of outstanding teamwork.

As an alternative option, if they were not into team leading, disputes, or litigation, they were definitely related to complex analysis, the framework of strategies, and various science-related work.

With a strong Mercury while South Node in Virgo, they had an immense amount of cognitive strength and skills to prosper in such activities.

Most importantly, a dignified Mercury guiding South Node in Virgo indicates that they were dignified and fulfilled their duties with the highest integrity and good intentions towards everyone.

On the contrary, an undignified Mercury, while the South Node is in Virgo, shows that these individuals experienced hardships in past lives related to this planet and zodiac sign.

More specifically, it indicates that they lacked dignity and therefore were not using their intelligence on pious purposes which brought various hindrances in their past life paths.

For instance, they may have used their clever tactics unethically to promote selfish gains and outcomes while abandoning others. The 6th sign also shows that they were aggressive and critical and harnessed their abilities in a way that caused a certain degree of damage to others.

In the processes that involved disputes, litigation, and even war they may have committed immoral deeds by harnessing their clever tactics and strategies unfairly.

Because of their greed and selfishness, they attracted lots of opposition from their teammates and other significant people which caused destruction in their paths and resulted in unfulfilled karmic duties.

As a result, in current lives, these natives must overcome various trials which manifest as divine tests and opportunities to correct mistakes made in past lives. However, as per the law of karma, they are prompted to endure the same situations or pain they caused to others in their past lives.

Therefore, the difficult results and adversities given by the South Node Ketu during its significant periods are tightly related to their own past life deeds. The best way to make peace with the past is to accept everything, forgive everyone, and never hold any grudges.

Detached From Criticism & Strictness

The 6th zodiac sign Virgo is all about attention to detail and criticism while South Node Ketu signifies detachment and dissolution.

Therefore, individuals with this combination are inherently detached from criticism and tend to be less detail-oriented.

As their past life was all about strictness, discipline, and flawless service, in this incarnation they have less interest in such a way of living.

Instead of this, they are more concentrated on the matters of the water sign Pisces, which is directly opposite to Virgo where the North Node resides.

That is to say, they prefer working and living in a way that helps their soul to relax deeply and not stress about anything.

Some of The Last Words of God via The Last Prophet [PBUH]

Whether this trait benefits them or not, is largely decided by the dignity of Mercury, which is the host and guide of the South Node in Virgo.

If Mercury is dignified, it shows that they are able to enjoy generally a stress-free life and do not have to confront major adversities in life. It also means that they do not have to use aggression, strictness, or criticism in their main activities.

They prefer to stay away from disputes, criticism, and aggression and are deeply interested in a peaceful style of communication with others.

When looked at a deeper perspective, they have done a lot of hard work and endured a lot in their previous lives and a dignified Mercury shows that they fulfilled it successfully. This means that in this life they are free from heavy-duty work for the most part.

On the contrary, an undignified Mercury indicates unfulfilled duties in past lives which shows that they have to struggle more in this life by enduring difficulties during significant periods of South Node Ketu.

The adversities can manifest in form of dangerous enemies, difficult litigations, unrewarded hard work, and other similar matters.

What makes it difficult is the fact that they dislike being in service and working hard but at the same time are prompted to do it with increased obstacles. After enduring these periods, they are free from negative karmic debts that cause unexplained hindrances in life.

In addition to that, negatively guided Ketu in Virgo brings out negative qualities of this sign making these individuals cynical, anxious, stressed, and overly-critical. Because of amplified worries and stress, they tend to be emotionally dull as well.

Amplified Imagination & Intuition

Virgo represents the earth element which denotes practicality and worldly matters. Therefore, South Node Ketu in this sign dissolves these qualities and promotes intuition instead of practical down-to-earth thinking.

This effect complements the placement of the North Node located in the opposite sign Pisces, where it directs the focus of current lifepath to this gentle sign.

Pisces represents the water element which is completely different from the one of earth. More specifically, the water element signifies the nourishment of the body and souls.

In addition to that, Pisces is the 12th zodiac sign denotes spirituality, detachment, and letting go of worldly matters while Virgo denotes practical worldly matters.

South Node Ketu is also a very intuitive and spiritual planet which in addition to dissolving and decreasing the focus on practical matters also amplifies the intuition of the opposite water sign.

As the traits of Virgo are decreased, it gives more room for the traits of Pisces such as spirituality, generosity, imagination, and creativity to thrive.

Accordingly, individuals with this combination are inherently very intuitive and have amplified imagination. They are less interested in complex tasks that require cognitive skills and more drawn into activities where intuitive intelligence and imagination are appreciated.

If Mercury is dignified, it shows that their intelligence is very strong despite the fact that the South Node in Virgo dissolves their analytical thinking and interest towards practical matters.

A strong Mercury which is connected with intuitive South Node Ketu also shows that their intelligence is integrated with their spiritual side and expressed through imagination and creativity.

In addition to that, the astrological entity Ketu relies completely on gut feelings and intuition instead of cognitive reasoning.

Therefore, these individuals rely on their intuitive intelligence when making various decisions. Herein a dignified Mercury ensures the precision of their intuition which leads to executing good decisions that lead to positive outcomes.

Most importantly, a dignified Mercury guiding South Node Ketu in Virgo indicates that they harness their creativity in a way that benefits everyone not only themselves.

On the contrary, when Mercury is undignified or weakened, it is unable to control the energies of South Node Ketu. As a result, these individuals find it hard to concentrate on practical matters as well as develop deeper creativity.

In addition to that, an undignified Mercury causes logical fallacies which can mislead to the intuition provided by Ketu.

Misleading intuition, in turn, causes them to make bad decisions based on wrong impulses or signals.

They might misunderstand others and other environmental signals which interrupt their intuition and affects it adversely.

In addition to that, an undignified Mercury as the host of the South Node in Virgo indicates the possibility that these individuals use their creativity unethically for selfish purposes.

Flexible & Resourceful

What is special about this combination is the fact that they are resourceful, adaptable, and flexible because both Pisces and Virgo are of the same modality. In other words, even though Ketu dissolves their practicality, their resourcefulness, flexibility, and adaptability remain intact.

It also means that their resourcefulness, flexibility, and adaptability are integrated with their imagination. While they function less effectively in practical matters, they are exceptionally resourceful in all kinds of tasks that involve creativity.

It is important to note that those positive effects realize when a dignified or strong Mercury supports South Node in Virgo. As Mercury governs two mutable signs, Gemini and Virgo, it definitely amplifies traits of this modality.

By being mentally flexible, they are able to shift their focus or course of action from one thought or activity to another. As South Node Ketu is a very sharp, impulsive, and spiritual entity, it decides and acts quickly without hesitation.

So is with individuals with this set of combinations. Particularly, they are able to change their mentality extremely quickly according to the demands and changing environmental factors.

By being adaptable, they are able to adjust their attitude, mentality, thoughts, and course of action to various conditions, even if they change quickly.

Even changing environments is not an issue for them because their creativity and imagination help them to come up with brilliant ideas.

As they use intuition and subconscious mind for that, their ideas appear in their minds suddenly out of the blue. More specifically, their ideas are channeled through spiritual sources which makes them very efficient in ever-changing environments.
