This can be another emotional day, but today is more fantasy-dominated
(yesterday's energies were a little more raw). The Moon is in Cancer all day.
Venus aligns with Neptune in Pisces approximately midday, and there is
heightened sensitivity to, and awareness of, beauty and spirituality. We are
easily influenced, seducible and seductive, and given to strong powers of
imagination. Gentleness with others is the best way to harness this energy. We
are psychically open and especially compassionate.
There is a distinct transition going on in January, from a focus on recreational and creative affairs, to a growing drive to take care of business, work, and health, dear Virgo.
Take full advantage of your extra drive to sort out your daily affairs and
routines, particularly until the 12th, but continue to focus on these areas
beyond that date with a less vigorous approach - you can push yourself only so
far, after which time pushing only leads to mistakes, setbacks, and exhaustion.
There can be wonderful success with what you truly enjoy doing, but you can
struggle from time to time with your need to find a balance between taking
action and enjoying down time. You quite readily slip into a service role,
tending to the needs of others, but you must not forget yourself in the process.
Time management is tricky all month, but it's something that needs your careful
attention. From the 12th forward, you are energized to take care of any problems
or stagnation in a relationship. This is the time to recognize the difference
between assertion and aggression. From the 20th, consider a new approach to your
health and wellness. Activities that help you to cleanse, purify, and otherwise
start anew are favored. When it comes to work, look to the past - to a time when
you were managing your work more effectively - in order to find answers to
difficulties in the present.
2015 continues to emphasize behind-the-scenes work and service, as well as
new insights into your deeper nature, dear Virgo. However, by September, you're
ready to share yourself with others, and they receive you very warmly. In fact,
there can be a blast of popularity in the last four months of the year and
extending into 2016. The year ahead is about healing and getting into better
touch with your innermost needs and wants, after which your confidence builds to
the point that you can put your self-realizations into action. People begin to
really "see" you, enjoy your presence, and want more! Being around you makes
others feel good.
An interesting combination is with you in 2015: Jupiter, ruler of your home,
family, and personal life, moves into your sign from August 11th forward,
stimulating your confidence, a love of freedom, and your desire to really
experience life in new ways. Much of the year, responsible and restrictive
Saturn transits Jupiter's sign, Sagittarius, and the same sector that Jupiter
rules. So, while you're busy expanding, learning, connecting, and engaging,
you're also doing important work on your self-image, foundations, and domestic
life that involves pruning, simplifying, and structuring. This is not the
easiest of Saturn transits, but it may very well tame the more excessive,
over-the-top, and wasteful tendencies of Jupiter's transit in your sign. It may
be one of the tamer Jupiter transits to your sign in your life time (there is a
year-long Jupiter transit to your sign every 12 years or so), but perhaps a more
balanced one as well. There can be a lot of focus on serving the family again
this year, but there will be distinct periods in 2015 when the family also serve
you, give back, and help you out. There can be changes with parents, children,
support, and home life that are significant, but these involve both challenges
and rewards, setbacks and advances. In the first half of the year, find the time
for rest, reflection, and healing as much as is healthy for you. Connect with
your spiritual needs and take advantage of any opportunity to learn about what
attitudes you've been wearing that have prevented you from pursuing your own
happiness and life experience. We often feel guilty without knowing fully why,
and Virgos tend to have this problem more than most. This is a time for
discovering irrational feelings of guilt and working on ridding yourself of
them. This is a time for giving back in areas that you've felt indebted or
unbalanced, and for spiritual self-renewal. Ideally, you'll discover what has
been holding you back from enjoying life, and then take this lesson forward as
you pursue your dreams.
Jupiter moving into your sign mid-August certainly nudges you forward, but
retrograde Venus from July 25-Septemer 6 can point to more inner work. The Solar
Eclipse mid-September in your own sign will give you a nice push. You'll have a
sense that you are able to start fresh. In October and November, you're raring
to go with Venus and Mars in your sign, highlighting your uniquely appealing
traits and stimulating your drive and energy levels. You also benefit from a
powerful transit beginning in October that stimulates your desire to express
yourself in new, transformed ways. You will be finding yourself, and your voice,
through creative projects and communication channels. While this period is more
about you and your personality, romantic expression reaches new heights as well.
Children may be thriving as previous obstacles are overcome.From
September forward, pressures on learning, schooling, and producing are lessened
considerably. This is a time when you are seeing opportunities where you
previously saw obstacles. You are less guarded about what you say and do, and
thus feel freer to express yourself.
Your love life continues to be on the tumultuous side, and while the last few
months of the year are strong for you personally, from November forward, both
easy and challenging energy is with you for love relationships and business
partnerships, if applicable. There can be problems stemming from family that
weigh heavily on love matters. Watch that a relationship doesn't become so
draining and demanding that other areas of life suffer. Draw
some boundaries and look out for yourself. Working towards more financial
independence continues to be important this year, and is easier than it was for
most of 2014. Mercury retrograde periods, generally three per year, are times
for catching your breath, looking at your life and projects a little more
critically, and making important edits. In 2015, these occur from January
21-February 11, May 18-June 11, and September 17-October 9. Other important
dates to watch for include May 3-19 and June 6-23 when actions and
communications that are too impulsive or over-the-top can negatively impact your
reputation or career. These need not be difficult, and in fact some of your
impulses may be genius on some level if you've lacked courage to make important
changes, but it's important to think twice at these times. Check with what's in
your heart before taking action and speaking out. Take full advantage of a
powerful lineup of planets in your sign that boost personal appeal in
mid-October to early November.
Longer term influences that were with you last year continue in 2014.
Neptune, the planet of illusion, continues to move through your partnership
sector this year, potentially bringing some confusion to your close one-to-one
relationships. This influence can cast a veil over committed relationships and
partnering. Particularly for those Virgos born August 26-30, there can be a lot
of confusion and a distinct lack of definition in partnership. Partnership may
be elusive at this time, and for some, it can be changing so significantly that
it's no longer recognizable. Virgos should be careful about devoting themselves
to someone unavailable or to a memory of a person who is no longer that same
person. They should also watch for seeing things for what they want to see,
rather than reality. If everyone around you is telling you that a partner is
using you or is not worthy of your attention, you may be tempted to defend them,
but do ask yourself if you are receiving even a fraction of what you are giving,
as there is a strong theme of sacrifice in partnerships going on now.
Others may have such high expectations of relationships, with dreams of
finding a soul mate, that reality is certain to lead to some disappointments.
Others may feel a certain disdain with what's available to them and can feel a
strong feeling of lack in their lives. Others are letting go of dreams of a
committed relationship, possibly after having experienced the more unflattering
side of relationships. However, this is also a time for recognizing unfulfilled
romantic needs, and you can get into better touch with what these are. A
spiritual connection is desired now, and relationships that don't provide you
with a sense of spiritual fulfillment will no longer satisfy....
