Areas of Expansion in 2014 for Virgo: Friendships, Groups, Causes, Hopes, Spirituality, Charity, Private Life
Your Virgo 2014 Horoscope points to areas of life that are destined to expand and grow.
Until July 16, 2014, your connections to others, group associations, and friendships expand and grow. Through groups or friends, you might seek a sense of belonging and comfort. Family and friends can be interconnected in interesting ways during this period.
This is a time when you are filled with ideas about the future. You are planting seeds, so to speak, aiming to get started on projects that will reap rewards in the future. While this can be exciting, try not to take on more than you can handle. Your vision is quite optimistic, and you might over-estimate what you are capable of doing down the road! However, one or two projects can be inspiring and also quite innovative.
With more contact with others, whether it's about an expanded in-person group of connections or online, you are sure to come up with new ideas and to become inspired. Others can point you in new directions. There can be a cause that you work towards enthusiastically, possibly related to family. Business income should increase.
Potential negatives: Over-emphasis on activities that take you away from your practical responsibilities, too often. There may be difficulties with a child or lover who is at odds with the energy and time you are pouring into your friendships and causes, particularly in January and April. Can too many social opportunities truly be a problem? Sometimes with Jupiter, we experience an embarrassment of riches, so to speak, and tough decisions need to be made as a result of too many choices or opportunities.
However, for the most part, you are likely to take advantage of this period in your life in order to expand your social life and friends base, and to dream up exciting new paths for the future. This is especially true in May, when some of you could enter into new partnerships or enhance existing ones; and others might enjoy a solid new communications job or project, finding a voice through group connections made this year.
This influence will be in effect until mid-July 2014.
From July 16th onward, your spiritual world, compassion, private life, and tolerance expand and grow. Matters from the past are magnified in your life now. You tend to sort through the attitudes that serve you well, and the behaviors that need to go in order for you to grow and improve - a cycle that runs until August 11, 2015.
This is generally a warm, protective cycle, although with Jupiter in the background in your chart, there may be some sense that you are not truly living or experiencing your life to the fullest. Your close personal relationships tend to be private and possibly involve some sacrifices. There could be complicated family matters to deal with. There can be a lot of energy poured into serving or supporting family members or into domestic chores. For some of you, there can be work on a project in relative solitude or privacy.
Potential negatives: Escapism. You might often be tempted to escape your everyday responsibilities and challenges, and should avoid reliance on drugs, drinking, or other "glamorous" forms of escape.
Jupiter's influence is generally considered positive, and it is, ultimately. However, it acts to magnify the area of the chart that it affects, and at times it can be uncomfortable if you are having difficulties in this area. In your case, if you are lonely or if you feel helpless, and if you have troubles facing your past, then this influence can heighten these issues. Ultimately, it's for the good. The cosmos asks you now to surrender some of your attachments, and to surrender to the unknown. Releasing control is necessary. Building your faith is the work you are doing now. While your tendency is to play a supportive role to others, if taken too far, you will need to draw some boundaries when it comes to your energy and time. July and August in particular can bring some strains on health or pressures in a partnership.
There is stronger joy in being of service to others, but do be careful that you take care of yourself as well.
However, for the most part, you are likely to feel emotionally secure and supported during this cycle. Your perceptions heighten. Your ability to make sacrifices for others increases, and you might build your confidence in yourself as you help and support others. September is an especially strong month for strengthening ties with a partner as well as getting into better touch with your inner world and deeper feelings. This influence is with you until August 2015.
Areas of Contraction and Lessons in Simplicity: Communications, Daily Life
Your Virgo 2014 Horoscope points to areas of contraction, restriction, and necessary "slimming down" in order to test for stable foundations. There are always areas of life that require more simplicity. Tests may be part of the picture as you learn that life with only growth and expansion can run away with itself.
The area of your life that requires a "back to basics" approach is again this year the sector that rules communications, learning, and local transportation. There may be tests of sorts in these areas of life, as if the universe is checking that the foundations are strong. Things built on weak foundations may very well crack under the pressure of these tests. Those that are strong will endure and strengthen.
This influence began October 5th, 2012, and is with you off and on until September, 2015. It can be felt most strongly earlier or later in the cycle, depending on when you were born.
Challenges can come to your communications. You may feel pressure to produce ideas, and to make them work in the "real world". A certain somberness in your outlook may be characteristic of this phase, as it may be a time of worry. It may seem like acquaintances and sometimes siblings are blocking your growth in some manner, and these relationships may be strained as a result. Although you have a desire to make contacts, you are now rather preoccupied with learning or other mental projects, and you may view idle chit-chat as a waste of time. You may feel an unusual pressure to structure your time and effort, and to cut out communications that seem unnecessary. You may at times feel rather overwhelmed by such things as errands, red tape, and other such day-to-day "disruptions". By the end of the transit, however, 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.
There is a great need now to structure your life by way of schedules, managing daily details and your time more effectively. There can be some problems with local transportation -- getting from point A to point B. There can be some restlessness or an urge to get out and about, but you might feel weighed down by your daily responsibilities.
However, this is also a time of increased practicality and esteem. You are more reliable than usual. You procrastinate less. You could have the opportunity to turn a dream into a reality on the lines of a communications or learning project, and involving a partner. There can be strong communication between you and someone special. Romantic relationships, friendships, communications, and structured learning can be especially rewarding from May-August. This can also be a very good year for communication with children. Relationships can be enhanced with more communication and openness, and children tend to listen to your advice. For some of you, teaching can be in strong focus in 2014.
At the tail end of 2014, Saturn enters Sagittarius. Carrying over into 2015, this transit will affect those of you born very early in the sign of Virgo only (August 23-August 27, or Virgo Ascendant of 0-5 degrees). The area of your life that requires a "back to basics" approach is the sector that rules home, family, your roots, domestic activities, living conditions, and security. There may be tests of sorts in these areas of life, as if the universe is checking that the foundations are strong. Things built on weak foundations may very well crack under the pressure of these tests. Those that are strong will endure and strengthen. Tests can come to your family life this year. The responsibilities and demands of domestic life can run high. There can be a feeling that others are not as sympathetic to you, or that they leave you alone to your own defenses during this period. In truth, you are learning how to stand on your own two feet, as well as to meet your responsibilities and to fix whatever it is that you have let slide in the past. At the end of this cycle, you'll have built a stronger foundation.
Areas of Excitement, Innovation, Independence, and Speed: Intimacy, Self-Knowledge, Finances
Your 2014 Virgo Horoscope points to areas of your life that seem to speed up so that you are able to take some risks, innovate, and revolutionize.
In March 2011, you entered a lengthy cycle in which your intimate world and shared resources can be unpredictable and unusual, but also inspiring and exciting. This influence is with you again, throughout 2014 and beyond.
Your intimate life and support systems from others are stimulated and opened. These areas of life can be the wild card area of life, but also highly stimulating and innovative. You may be far more experimental when it comes to opening up yourself on sexual and intimate levels. There can be some experimentation in your relationships for some of you; for others, there may be less interest in, or possibly some fear of, intimacy right now. You do need to watch for over-confidence with others who might squander your shared resources, however.
You will be learning a lesson in detachment during this cycle - sudden changes in the support you receive from others can force you to become more independent financially. Prepare yourself for fluctuations by settling as many debts as you can. Watch for gambling or risk-taking with money (and a partner who may be doing same) all year, but especially in February, April and December. Watch your heart as well during these periods, as there can be some problems with intimate partners who can come and go and leave your head spinning. Friendships can be complicated sporadically during these periods. You may be attracting people who have different ideas about the intimacy of your relationship than you do.
A better period for excitement, innovation, intimacy, and courage is from September-November. New insights into your inner workings can be had now, and your intimate life can open up.
Areas of Change, Purging, & Transformation: Love Affairs, Children, Creativity, Recreation, Learning, Communication, Transportation, Finances.
Your 2014 Virgo Horoscope reveals areas of life in which change and transformation take place. It's a time for "out with the old, in with the new".
Love affairs can bring intense personal transformations this year and beyond. This is a long-term influence that has already been present in your life, and will be with you for many years to come. You may be meeting people who turn you inside out, and through experiences with them, you learn more about your own power over your life. While experience is good - it builds character - protect your heart and your body by employing some caution with new people in your life.
February is strong for more enduring and rewarding personal relationships. More challenging periods are possible in January, April, and November-December, when there can be sudden events or circumstances that change the direction of, or put a strain on, your love life.
In 2014, your ability to manage the demands of daily life is tested, and changes may be necessary in order to become more effective. Your personal belief system is also evolving this year. Transportation can be an issue. Opening up communications with others is a challenge but also a potential joy this year.
As well, your finances are evolving in important ways. You will be called upon to strike a balance between your own needs for security and comfort and the same needs of other people, such as those of a significant other. You are learning to ask for what you deserve, and to take charge of your earnings.
