Actually, I've thought that it had a great deal to do with the Path.  The
of dominance/submissive are always there in guru/disciple relationships,
clerical relationships and soul/personality relationships, as well as the
male/female ones.

But usually it is veiled behind other language.  The first person I ever
encountered who seemed to have grasped the connection of S/M to
the spiritual path is Robert Anton Wilson, in his book
Schrodinger's Cat. The next place I saw was in the works of Ann Rice.
I don't view S/M as just some bizarre state of mind, but as something that
and is being acted out all the time, everywhere and even in the highest
places.  Perhaps, even on this list.  As below, so above and etc.

The Virgo points out things that we never noticed before.
