Recently I treated myself with a kind of more personal piece byย Yasmin Everley. She has thisย Astrology Collectionย so I thought I should get myself a necklace. Which I did.
Yasminย had announced earlier her pieces are sold viaย Boticcaa As I never had purchased through that platform, I gave it a try. Success!
Now I wear myย Virgo Astrology necklaceย almost every day.

Each piece of the collection takes the form of a circle, which the Ancient Greeks considered the most geometrically perfect shape. The circle holds a cluster of the stars, accurately forming the constellation, which is held suspended in space by delicate wire.

My Virgo necklace came with a little card telling the myth behind the constellation:
In the Ancient Greek tale, Virgo is associated with the story of Demeter, the goddess of harvest, and her daughter Persephone. While Persephone was out gathering flowers, Hades abducted her and made her his wife. In her grief Demeter caused all the harvests to fail until Hades agreed to give her back for half the year and so the seasons were created.
