2012: Virgo Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
2012 Overview for all Virgos. You are building your skills set in the first half of 2012, dear Virgo, and you blossom in the second half. The last quarter of 2012 should be especially strong with Jupiter in the foreground of your solar chart and both Saturn and Pluto in favorable aspect to your sign. Nevertheless, watch that you balance your attention when it comes to different areas of your life. Virgos can be so caught up in their career, projects, or outer image this year that order around the home might slide. When it comes to love in 2012, October is excellent for both partnerships and more casual romances. December is a close second. Yes, Neptune is now casting a veil of confusion over partnership matters, but it's also in its own terms - where it belongs - in your partnership sector. Some of you will meet very dreamy, almost surreal partners during its long transit. Money matters in 2012 can be a little tricky at times, as it can be difficult to rely on sources from others, and many of you could feel that you have to work harder on generating an income to compensate for this instability. Two periods that prompt you to review and reassess money matters are January 23-April 13 and May 15-June 27. From January to June, Jupiter smiles on you favorably, dear Virgo, helping you to treat minor inconveniences with a positive attitude and boosting your morale. Fiery, assertive Mars provides you with extra motivation, energy, and power to move forward with personal plans until July. You could surprise those around you who are used to a demure, conciliatory approach to life. You are learning to go after what you want. Take advantage of this time to learn as much as possible so that when Jupiter moves to the very top of your solar chart in June, you'll be able to take advantage of the career opportunities that are likely to come your way. You'll also feel more deserving of the recognition you receive then and through to mid-2013.
Until June 11th, Jupiter continues to transit your solar ninth house. Under this influence, you may have opportunities to travel, study, go abroad, expand your horizons, and meet people who are of diverse backgrounds. You might become more intellectually curious now, and academic pursuits are likely to benefit you and run smoothly during this cycle. Business dealings, particularly long-distance ones and those involving publicity and promotion, are likely to be profitable now. Legal matters might also work in your favor, or long-standing legal problems might now be ironed out. Some of you will be seeking legal advice and find it especially helpful now. A more faithful attitude towards life in general is likely now--you tend to feel that everything will work out in the end. Authors might get published now, receive good reviews, or they could significantly expand their audience. Travel is quite possible now, whether it's business or personal. Educational and travel opportunities expand your horizons. Teaching and learning are favored now. Writing and studying flow more naturally now. This is also an excellent period for positive dealings with in-laws! Your mind is more expansive and tolerant, and you are under less stress than usual. You are less inclined to sweat the small stuff. These positive circumstances won't necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to come all at once. You need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life. Watch for a tendency towards a "holier than thou" attitude.
From June 11th forward, Jupiter transits your solar tenth house. Increased public recognition and professional success characterize this position. This can be a time of achievement, career advancement, and success in business. Business-related travel or the reaching of a wider audience is possible during this cycle. Your worldly or public status may change for the better. There could be a promotion, new job opportunities, a diploma, an important award, or a marriage. You may come into the limelight. Authority figures or other influential people tend to look upon you favorably, see more potential in you, and readily help you along, so work it! Something might happen now, or circumstances are such, that your career (or professional interests in general) expands, and you find more joy and pleasure from your work. You could enjoy more freedom, or possibly even responsibilities, in your career. Integrity, directness, and honesty will get you everywhere now. The more willing you are to put yourself in the limelight, the more positive the rewards--this is not the time to be a shrinking violet! These positive circumstances won't necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to come all at once. You need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar tenth house, from June 11th to October 4th. (This transit lasts until June 2013).
Jupiter transits trine your Sun until mid-March, making it an excellent time to start new long-term projects. You might find that you feel subtly more vital, confident, and optimistic about the future at this time. It's a good time to resolve conflicts, as you are not as easily angered by trivial matters, and domestic matters can run smoothly and happily.
Saturn transits your solar second house again this year, ending its transit in October, and urging you to take stock of your effectiveness, self-worth, and finances. This stage of your life may involve hard work, but not necessarily of an unpleasant variety! Financial success is generally steady, if slow to come by. This transit has traditionally been associated with financial loss, but in truth, it is more about our perceptions—you are likely to review how effective you have been on a financial level to date, and find some dissatisfaction with your progress. In fact, gains may be slow, but sudden reversals are not common with this transit. The purpose of this transit is for you to make the connection between your own feelings of self-worth and what you produce in the real world/get back from the real world. In recent years, you may have had some feelings of being unsupported (you may have been thinking, "I work so hard, and what do I get for all this hard work?"), but as the transit moves forward, you learn to look inside of yourself with a newfound clarity and realism and ideally draw up considerable strength from within. You work on your effectiveness in the world, and see exactly what has been holding you back from achieving the results you want. The challenge here is to capture the newly found and defined self-confidence you gained while Saturn was in Virgo, and now apply it in the real world.
Saturn moves into your solar third house in October, where it will transit until 2015. You are more productive, with a responsible and sometimes even somber outlook during this period. Although you have a desire to make contacts, you are now rather preoccupied with learning or producing, and you may view idle chit-chat as a waste of time. You could feel an unusual pressure to structure your time and effort, and to cut out communication that seems unnecessary. You are more able to accomplish something solid this year. By the end of the transit, you will have ideally gained a greater depth of understanding, having focused on information and communication that you really can use to feel more effective in the world.
Saturn sextiles your Sun from October 2012 to October 2013, and you benefit from a sense of stability as well as positive feedback from superiors. You are also more credible and reliable, which others appreciate and acknowledge. Hard work done in the past begins to pay off, and you could feel quite supported and secure with the people in your life.
For those of you born August 23-September 1 and those with a Virgo Ascendant of 0-9 degrees, Pluto is in your solar fifth house this year. This extremely long-term transit brings gradual but deep changes in attitude towards love affairs, creativity, hobbies, recreation, children, and entertainment.
For those of you born August 28-September 1 and those with an Ascendant of 5-1/2 to 9 degrees Virgo, Pluto trines your Sun/Ascendant, and you are bound to have an uplifting, transforming year. You could take up some form of physical or health program that completely changes the way you feel about yourself. The things that give you joy and positive feedback figure prominently this year, and you feel renewed and regenerated. You also feel particularly strong and personally powerful. There is no such thing as playing the victim this year--you're the victor and you feel it. You enjoy an increased ability to concentrate and focus on what really matters to you. Living authentically is what this year is all about. You are also learning to "own" your creative voice and the style in which you communicate, becoming less reticent about expressing yourself in creative ways, as well as communicating your ideas and perspectives. For some of you, the lines of communication are opening up with your own children. This is a potentially empowering time in your life when your personality is more vibrant, magnetic, focused, and resolute. You might take up a pleasantly consuming new hobby, line of work, or interest now. You might also begin a new health program (body, mind, or spirit) that improves your outlook on life. You might kick a bad habit or rid yourself of undesirable attitudes that have, in the past, held you back from success.
For those of you born August 23-31, and those with a Virgo Ascendant of 0 to 8-1/2 degrees, Uranus begins or continues its lengthy transit of your solar eighth house. There could be some ambiguities or unexpected happenings surrounding money that are part of your life but that don't originate from your own income. This includes such things as shared resources with a close partner, alimony, taxes, loans, and so forth. At times, this could throw you off balance. This position could also indicate a period of uncertainty surrounding your intimate relationships, and/or some experimentation with your sexuality.
For those of you born September 1-2, Uranus continues to transit your solar seventh house. Close relationships may have received a shake-down in recent years, and you may have felt that it's been hard to truly rely on a partner. Lifeless or outworn relationships may have been especially hard to bear for you. Some trial and error in relationships is par for the course with Uranus in this sector of your chart. This year, more changes in your view of partnerships are in store, but these matters are not as pressing as they were when Uranus opposed your Sun.
The influence of Neptune is similar to last year for most of you. Neptune continues to transit your solar sixth house, as it has been doing for a number of years. You are more susceptible to medications, chemicals, and other such things during this long-term cycle, so keep this in mind. Stress more easily affects your health as well. Some confusion on the job may have been part of the picture, or your job may have steered towards compassionate service, charity, or other helping professions. Although Virgos are known for their ability to stick to schedules, Neptune's presence here has made it more challenging to do so. However, for those born August 23-26 (or 0-3 degrees Virgo Ascendant), Neptune begins its transit of your solar seventh house and opposes your Sun/Ascendant this year, casting some "fog" over your partnerships. You may be meeting evasiveness in a partner or potential mates. A more accepting or spiritual approach to partnerships is what you are moving towards, but there can be some confusion and possibly disillusionment in the process. It can be hard to pin down a partner to a solid commitment. Or, you may begin to attract Neptunian people into your life--at best, they can be compassionate, artistic, or spiritual types. At the other end of the spectrum, they can be elusive, evasive, or downright deceptive. You could struggle somewhat with your own expectations in partnerships. Self-deception may very well be in play, and when others don't quite measure up to their expectations, disappointments occur. Do your best to see people for who they are rather than what you'd really like them to be. Your own goals could be confusing, and your energy levels could swing quite dramatically at times, perhaps reflecting this inner confusion. A more spiritual approach to your life is in order, and this Neptune transit calls upon you to detach yourself from some of your more worldly and materialistic goals.
Your ruler, Mercury, turns retrograde typically at least three times in the course of a year. These periods are better used for reflection rather than for pushing personal plans ahead. In 2012, Mercury is retrograde from March 12-April 4, July 14-August 8, and November 6-26.
Eclipses in 2012 fall in your solar fourth and tenth houses and third and ninth houses this year. It's time to take steps to improve your family and home life. You may need to review and change your career goals as well. Career matters come to a head. You may be challenged to perform and prove your competence in 2012. Keeping everything aboveboard is critical. Finding a balance between your attention to home and career is the challenge now. Additionally, you will be learning to expand your horizons, possibly through contact with people from an entirely different background than yours, travel, or higher learning. Your personal philosophy will be changing, and eclipses give you a push towards adopting beliefs that truly work for you in the real world. You are learning about your need for self-expression through adventure. There may also be some sort of drama surrounding communication, modes of transportation, mobility, neighbors, or siblings that requires you to reorganize.
From June to September, you could be dealing with erratic sources of income or cash flow, particularly with money coming in from other sources than your own income. There can be challenges regarding whether a romance is casual or more than that.
A positive connection between your ninth and fifth houses in March makes it a potentially highly spirited time. You are in the position to inspire others through what you create. Do your best to create something tangible out of your ideas. You are bound to reach a broader audience if you do, and the feedback will feed the flames of your own inspiration. Romantic opportunities might come from people of an entirely different background or culture, or through education and travel. Home and domestic matters can be especially favorable. You might become more organized in your home life, and you can more effectively get work done at home if need be. More compassion and tolerance might emerge in your relationships with family. You could feel more "in charge" of domestic matters. Relationships with siblings and neighbors might be improved and a source of happiness. Communications and transportation issues can also improve during this period. Studies are likely to be easier, or you might enjoy more success in your courses.
