Overview for this Month: Virgo (All)

May 2016

There can be a strong focus on learning, sharing ideas, publishing, and venturing out beyond your usual bounds in May, dear Virgo. While Mercury, your ruler, is retrograde until the 22nd, and Mars is as well (all month), you have many reasons to be hopeful and frequently enjoy moments when your spirits are lifted.

The first half of May is excellent for editing and revising, returning to old interests and studies, work on projects you aim to publish, creative works, and partnerships. You may be revisiting old relationships, perhaps only in the mind, and ideally learning from past regrets. You may regain confidence in old plans, ideas, and projects now - there are treasures to be found in works-in-progress that you may have left behind. However, to make them work in the future, you need to approach them in new ways. Some special days for opportunities in these areas are the 2-3, 9-10, 12-13, and 30th. The New Moon on the 6th ushers in good energy for recommitting to plans and projects, as well as for new resolutions to explore, grow, and expand beyond the regular experiences of your life. This is a good time for exploring new adventures or perspectives with a partner and people you care about. Romantic possibilities may come from a person who is of a very different background than you around the 12-13, or from a long-lost friend. There can be a financial boost or gift.

You are more visible than usual with the Sun in your solar tenth house from the 20th forward. A Full Moon occurs on the 21st, aligning with retrograde Mars, which opposes the Sun exactly the next day just when Mercury stations direct - a complicated mix of energies! Challenging family or home life issues could emerge now. Pay close attention to any emotional "slush", anger, or resentment that surfaces now, as you might better understand some of the tension that has recently been with you. The good news is that whatever emerges now is in full view and this begins the process of working things through.

If you've been overdoing certain personal freedoms to the detriment of other life departments, the Jupiter-Saturn square the peaks on the 26th will remind you of the need to strike a balance. This is an important time for getting your home and family life in order. Plans that were too ambitious may need some reworking. Look for ways to simplify your life, as the work you do now on streamlining and restructuring can benefit you for years to come. This influence first came into influence last summer and is now ending.

From May 27th, Mars spends its last month in retrograde in your communications sector. Some of the pressure you've been feeling on the domestic scene releases, and you turn your attention to courses, studies, and interests that may need special attention. Challenges with self-expression, pushing/selling your ideas, or with neighbors and siblings may occur for some of you. However, this is a strong period for fixing problem areas and revising work you did in the past. Positive educational, work, or travel news may be forthcoming around the 30th, when your voice is stronger than usual and others may recognize you as an authority on a subject. You are moving towards a career and life path yearly peak of sorts in the last week of May.

May 2016 Virgo Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

May 2016

 

Overview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

Until May 20th:

The Sun continues to shine its light on your solar ninth house now. This is a cycle in which you seek to expand your experiences and awareness, whether through philosophical thinking, higher education, travel, or simply activities that take you away from your everyday routines. You may feel a little restless if you don't find ways to explore. It's an excellent period for looking at your life from a different perspective--a broader one--whether you initiate this process or you make contact with others who stimulate you to think about your circumstances differently. Your energy is strong, open, and friendly right now, you come across well to others, and you are a little bolder and adventurous than usual.

From May 20th forward:

The Sun illuminates your career and reputation sector. More than any other time of the year, your focus is drawn to your "place" or standing in the outer world, and your reputation. This is the time when you are more interested in, and focused on, accomplishing something important. Your competency is something that you are especially sensitive to during this cycle. You want to shine. Your vision is practical right now, and you want to see tangible results for your efforts. More contact with authority figures is likely during this period. Recognition is likely to come your way whether you ask for it or not, and the responsibility that comes right along with it! Do what you feel is right, keeping in mind that you are at your most visible during this period in the year.

Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort

Until May 24th:

Venus continues to grace your solar ninth house. During this cycle, your ideals in love are set high. You might become inspired by a loved one now, or someone might awaken a new perspective or way of thinking in you. You could also enjoy a trip, or a new adventure of sorts. In fact, you are attracted to anything that is non-routine and fare best when you are reaching out beyond your usual bounds. You might be attracted to people or even objects that are exotic or different in some way during this cycle. It's a good period for personal charm and attractiveness in general.

From May 24th forward:Venus graces your solar tenth house now. During this cycle, you are most charming and well-received on the job. Your responsibility and authority are likeable qualities now, making this a favorable period overall for schmoozing with those in a higher position than you, as well as for negotiations or social activities related to business. Venus is charming, friendly, and affectionate, and her presence in your career and reputation sector brings social opportunities to your career. You are coming across well at work now, and romantic opportunities, or simply more chances to socialize and network, are likely. You are socially ambitious right now, and success may come though your good managerial qualities or some form of artistic talent, or, indirectly through your marriage partner. People who turn your head during this cycle are those who come across as especially competent.

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Mercury is retrograde from April 28th to May 22nd:

All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of your own body language and personal manner (you may feel that others misunderstand you), as well as communications involving the career or public, because Mercury rules these areas of your life. You are ruled by Mercury, so the likelihood of being misunderstood, in general, is high. Put off career decisions as well, as career matters are Gemini-ruled for you.

Occurring in your solar ninth house this time, extra care should be exercised regarding travel or education plans. Delays or complications are very possible in these areas. Go over applications carefully before submitting them and make sure you understand instructions clearly. Expressing your opinions now might come across in entirely the wrong way. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating with professors and lawyers as well; or take this time to re-examine issues rather than communicating about them prematurely.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

Mars is retrograde from April 17-June 29

All Mars retrograde cycles affect you in the areas of intimacy, sharing, and finances because Mars rules these areas of your solar chart. Intimate matters may become more intense and complicated. Joint financial projects or initiatives may stall, or you could find that you are less confident about expressing yourself in personal ways. Anger management might be in order now, and it's a strong period for reviewing how you have been asserting yourself with a partner. There can be frustrations with how you've been managing power in a partnership, and a drive to improve this situation. There may be a struggle with addictions at this time, or the magnification of fears and phobias that have been driving your behavior. The good news is that you have a chance to better manage them.

From April 17th to May 27th:

Occurring in your solar fourth house this time, household projects may slow down or stall. Repairs may need to be done, or circumstances are such that living conditions seem unstable or in need of review. Perhaps the enthusiasm that you have been building for work around the house is lessening. You may have an increased desire to rule the roost, or feel that this position is no longer in your hands, and if this transit stimulates conflict or disputes, it is likely to be family-related--you may have arguments with them, about them, or on their behalf. You may get worked up about old problems or regarding emotional issues from the past that are resurfacing now. Refocusing, backtracking, and review become necessary and recommended now. It's time to review how you have been handling your assertiveness on the home front and with family.

From May 27th to June 29th:

Occurring in your solar third house this time, mental projects, courses, or studies could be less exciting or invigorating for the time being. Perhaps a project you have been working on and enthused about encounters some snags and you feel the urge to abandon it altogether. Some of you could be quite preoccupied with problems in these areas. Challenges with self-expression, pushing/selling your ideas, or with neighbors and siblings may occur now. Social interactions can be a little strained now, as you may feel the need to hold back or there is a lack of usual spontaneity in your communications. There can be frustration with daily routines. It's time to rethink, revise, and reorganize your plans. Backtracking is a good idea. In fact, this is a strong time for making important edits of work already in progress.

Overview Horoscope:

Virgo (Born September 3 to 12) AND Virgo Ascendant from 10 to 20 degrees Virgo:

May 2016 Virgo Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

May 2016

 

Overview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

All month:

This month, with the Sun spotlighting your solar ninth house, your focus turns outward, away from the more personal concerns that have occupied your thoughts in the last months. More than any other time during the year, you are feeling most adventurous and willing to take a leap of faith. This is a cycle in which you seek a higher meaning to your life, and/or seek out new experiences that take you beyond the here and now, and beyond the mundane details of day-to-day life. Anything that broadens your experiences attracts now. A lack of superficiality finds you straight to the point, interested in the truth of things. It would be wise for you to consider scheduling a vacation, adventure of sorts, or a course that expands your mind. These don't have to happen now, but taking the time to recognize your needs for escaping the daily grind, taking a few risks, and feeding your spirit for self-expression through some form of adventure or higher learning, will help you to feel good about yourself. The only caution with this cycle is that you could lose touch with managing everyday affairs and important details.

Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort

Until May 8th:

Venus continues to move through your solar eighth house during this period. You are attracted to the deeper elements of relationships and social interactions now, rather than what you meet on the surface. Mysteries fascinate you and you could be looking for others' motives for doing and saying what they do. It's a good time to feel supported by others, whether it's financially or emotionally. It's also a strong cycle for discovering your own hidden talents as well as fascinating things about a partner.

From May 8th forward:

Venus graces your solar ninth house during this period. A taste for the exotic takes hold during this cycle. Routine affairs simply don't seem to satisfy. You receive pleasure from anything that expands your horizons, both physically and mentally. Foreign people and places may particularly appeal now. You tend to be expansive and generous when it comes to love. A love interest who attracts you during this cycle may be somebody who you previously wouldn't consider attractive, or someone whose cultural background is very different than yours. You have a taste for the exotic and the spirit to match. Public relations work, promotion, and other such endeavors are favored now. It is more about how you express yourself than the specifics of what you are saying that helps sway others to your position. There could be especial rapport with foreigners and with women if you are traveling during this period. You are all the more attractive and charming with this position, which increases your popularity. If a romance were to begin now, it is more likely to be with someone of a different background or educational level, or someone you meet through travel. You have a taste for the exotic now that can show up in many areas of your life--who you are attracted to, what you buy, the kind of art or entertainment you enjoy, and so forth.

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Mercury is retrograde from April 28th to May 22nd:

All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of your own body language and personal manner (you may feel that others misunderstand you), as well as communications involving the career or public, because Mercury rules these areas of your life. You are ruled by Mercury, so the likelihood of being misunderstood, in general, is high. Put off career decisions as well, as career matters are Gemini-ruled for you.

It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating with professors and lawyers as well; or take this time to re-examine issues rather than communicating about them prematurely.

From May 22nd forward - Mercury is direct:

Mercury transits your solar ninth house. Not content to focus on mundane, practical affairs just now, your mind turns to bigger visions, thoughts, and ideals. You are open to expanding your knowledge base during this cycle, and communications from or with someone far away may be part of the picture. You are putting everything into perspective now, rather than compartmentalizing. Instead of simply shooting the breeze, you are more inclined to discuss broader philosophies now. Your inclination during this cycle is to think about the "big picture" rather than the mundane circumstances and details of your life. Missing appointments and other forms of forgetfulness could be part of the picture now.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

Mars is retrograde from April 17-June 29

May 2016 Virgo Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

May 2016

 

Overview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

Until May 10th:

The Sun continues to highlight your solar eighth house. Your attention turns inward, as well as to close personal relationships on a deeper level. Personal transformations, personal power, and intimate matters fulfill you most during this cycle. There may be a strong focus on other's money, such as the resources of a partner, inheritance, banking and loans, or taxes. You are more intense in your mood and disposition, and perhaps even secretive, at this time of year. You are more in touch with the deeper and even primal elements of your own personality, and more able to see these things in others. This can be a determined and personally powerful time of year if you apply the energy of this transit constructively.

From May 10th forward:

This month, with the Sun spotlighting your solar ninth house, your focus turns outward, away from the more personal concerns that have occupied your thoughts in the last months. More than any other time during the year, you are feeling most adventurous and willing to take a leap of faith.

Until May 16th:

You are ruled by Mercury, so the likelihood of being misunderstood, in general, is high. Put off career decisions as well, as career matters are Gemini-ruled for you.

Occurring in your solar eighth and ninth houses this time, extra care should be exercised regarding travel or education plans, and with any financial initiatives that involve shared resources. Delays are very possible when it comes to transportation, receiving support, loans, and taxes. There may be delays regarding financial support, loans, or taxes. It may be better to side-step arguments with loved ones that revolve around intimacy and sexuality. Investments made now may not go the way you want them to, particularly those involving joint finances. It may be hard to rely on the input of your partner now, and money you were counting on may not be forthcoming. It's best to budget rather than spend. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating with professors, lawyers, acquaintances, and intimate partners, or take this time to re-examine issues rather than communicating about them prematurely.

From May 22nd forward - Mercury is direct:

Mercury transits your solar eighth house. You are more intuitive now than usual, picking up all of the hidden cues from people around you and reading between the lines. This is an excellent cycle in which to do some financial planning and strategizing. Research is also highly favored. It's also easier for you to approach sensitive, intimate, and personal matters with rationality and logic. As such, this is a great time to open up conversations about topics that normally might cause waves, such as those revolving around the sharing of power, intimacy, and finances.

From May 27th, Mars spends its last month in retrograde in your communications sector. Some of the pressure you've been feeling on the domestic scene releases, and you turn your attention to courses, studies, and interests that may need special attention. Challenges with self-expression, pushing/selling your ideas, or with neighbors and siblings may occur for some of you. However, this is a strong period for fixing problem areas and revising work you did in the past. Positive educational, work, or travel news may be forthcoming around the 30th, when your voice is stronger than usual and others may recognize you as an authority on a subject. You are moving towards a career and life path yearly peak of sorts in the last week of May.
