You are the magic ingredient when it comes to creating the changes you wish to see, Virgo. The future is yours to craft now. What will you do with it?
Love is your transformational tool
Head towards something new
April begins with ruler Mercury still retrograde in your 8th. Needless to say, all your usual Retrograde Rules apply not just up until the point where Mercury moves forward again (15th) but during the following three weeks of shadow too. This is your house of change, power and transformation. Power is associated with current. Current = currency. Mercury rules commerce and your 8th rules corporate or shared money and how powerful you feel handling this. Time to see yourself as a conduit for worldly power and resources. April is going to give you an opportunity to test how you handle more of this. Are you ready to switch on?
There’s also another issue happening in the background and that is around generating that currency current via something you love doing. Or getting the confidence to do just that. Very often this is something we have to grow into. Or do you think that it’s only a ‘lucky’ few who get to make their passion their profession? If it feels good, float it or follow it this month. There’s a lot of powerful retrograde shifts happening in your 5th of creativity, pleasure and children too. Saturn heads backwards in here from the 18th with Pluto following on the 22nd. With both of these planets the retrograde phases last months as opposed to Mercury’s three weeks. Some of you could be looking at issues around being able to love what they do – and being paid to do it. Others could be looking at the younger generation – becoming parents, step parents or even doing this at a later stage in life than you thought. What do you have to ‘hand down’ to those younger than you? Or better yet, what do they have to give you?
Your 5th is your house of romance and pleasure. Saturn isn’t normally associated with these things and Pluto – well, Pluto is all about lust, passion and intensity and note this is your house of romance. Yes, if you hit the jackpot you can get the whole package. A transformational love affair is one possibility now as Pluto becomes more powerful when he retrogrades. You may turn into the Virgo who can’t say ‘No’ under this influence. Whether something lasting is promised is another matter but you can expect a little alchemy to change you no matter what. Saturn rules time and karma and another aspect of Saturn in here and especially retrograde is a second time around kind of love. This could literally be a past lover reappearing, a potential lover with a big age difference (the gap can be either way, they may not necessarily be older) or suddenly falling head-over-heels if you thought love had passed you by entirely. It’s all in the timing.
That currency or the current that electrifies you may give you a fresh opportunity or a jolt towards something new as the day after your ruler turns direct in your 8th, a new Moon appears in here conjunct Uranus. This can come from an unexpected quarter and it brings with it an opportunity for renewal – perhaps around what you do. It brings with it the promise of breaking you free from something that has stunted your growth or controlled your direction for far too long especially as the new Moon will be followed by the Sun meeting Uranus just two days later.
As the Sun moves on into your 9th you may feel as if you are stepping free from restrictions into a world of larger possibilities. Venus is about to change signs moving from your 9th and into your 10th from the 24th. In here Venus adds a touch of diplomacy to career undertakings enabling you to reach for the right thing to say and create the right impression as you do so. This is also an excellent transit to update your professional image. Time to look the part especially if you are seeking to step into a bigger, more acclaimed role. The month ends with a full Moon in your communication and business sector which in turn will make an interesting dynamic with the cosmic, karmic North Node in your 12th and Saturn in your 5th. It’s time to remain focused now even if you feel pulled in different directions, and to decide on that one project or goal that is most important to you and commit to that. The awakening you’ve just received should have shown you just what this is and how important it is to you. It’s all part of the currency of success for you this April.
In a nutshell: Love and also your talents and skills are your currency this April, Virgo. Time to plug yourself back in to the ‘current’. Especially when it comes to romance or your time to shine.
It’s time for some serious lovin’ in 2018, Virgo. Saturn and Pluto sit in your 5th and the start of the year will see ruler Mercury meet both in here. Yes, Saturn can make heavy weather out of things. But the upside of this is you should now be able to recognise whether or not a lover has long term potential – or not. The benefits are far-reaching for you: no more time wasters. Saturn and Pluto are both in their own way, concerned with endings. So, you are likely to see anything which doesn’t have a future end very early on in the year new. Don’t despair and see this as a new beginning rather than an end. There’s a massive transformation occurring in the far reaches of your soul now. And it relates to the love you have and the love you show in return. Your creativity is also in focus so expect a renewed commitment to that and anything that makes your soul dance and life sparkle.
This is the year of the crazy retrograde. Now, being Mercury ruled you are used to the madness that can rule when your ruler appears to move backwards in the sky. Get ready for even more mayhem than usual this 2018 however. During the July/August period at one point we will experience a total of six planets retrograde all at the same time. Yes, your ruler will be one of them, heading backwards through your house of the past and secrets. But we will also see Mars making a rare retrograde through your 6th and that back into your 5th during this time. Jupiter will head backwards in your 3rd, Saturn and Pluto will retrograde in your 5th, Neptune will retrograde in your partnership zone and Uranus having moved out of your 8th and on into your 9th from May 15 will also head retrograde from the second week of August.
You may feel like you are going over old ground once more in so many areas. This may include partners and your closest friends. You may find it difficult to express your feelings or else just feel others are not making any effort to see things from your perspective. If you are not careful, frustrations can result in arguments and also things getting blown out of all proportion. Look back over the past seven years because Uranus in your 8th of fears and intimacy should have left you with a new way of dealing with those deep seated issues. Especially those between you and those closest to you. With Neptune still in your relationship zone, you can access a different approach now and come from a place of compassion – perhaps for yourself. You are only human after all!
Just bear in mind with outer planet retrogrades, that these tend to increase rather than decrease the planet’s influence. Unlike Mercury retrogrades where everything just goes haywire! Uranus in your 9th retrograde can have you wanting to escape and leave everything behind. Just be mindful of what you are running away from. That fantasy about being a beach bum may look appealing, until you have to pay the bills on the beach hut. However, Uranus in your 9th brings a fabulous, universal outlook, a desire to embrace new, perhaps even ‘radical’ ideas and for new experiences. You may find yourself getting involved with or even studying subjects you might have dismissed before now. Your mind is more open, more enquiring than it has been for a very long time. You may also be drawn to visit unusual places. Again, these may be destinations you would have had no desire to visit before. Now you want to get off the beaten track – or whatever that means for you, as the diverse and the unique call to you.
Departures from the ‘norm’ are where your success lies this year. A good philosophy is to look at what you have chosen in the past and what the results were from that. This rules everything from your wardrobe choices, to lovers, holiday destinations and career moves. If you’re happy with your results – fine. If not, this year is all about making that different choice and seeing if you get a
different outcome. Instead of saying: That’s not for me, Uranus in your 9th wants you to say ‘That IS for me!’. Try it and see.
Jupiter planet of luck, abundance and learning remains in your 3rd for most of the year. What are you learning? This is a Mercury ruled house in your chart so commerce, communication, writing, teaching and travel could feature. This is your house of your siblings if you have them and your neighbourhood. Getting more involved with your community is one aspect of Jupiter in here as is receiving benefits via siblings or neighbours. Above all however, Jupiter in here is all about seeing how far one idea can take you. This could be an idea for a blog, book, screenplay, website or business. Or it could be an idea that can be shared with others. It’s about having good game rather than just talking one. You need to bring it with Jupiter in here. From November onwards he’ll be making his annual shift – from your 3rd and in into your 4th of home, family, security and that sense of belonging. There could be benefits from women in your life – especially from your mother but women in general could prove to be very helpful now.
This is an excellent transit for moving house, for extending or improving your current home or for buying something expensive that you’ve wanted for it for some time. This is also an excellent transit for business dealings, for impressing superiors, for your public/professional image and for long term decisions. Family events and celebrations feature too – or perhaps the cause for celebrating is yours! 2019 could be the year when you bring it all together and 2018 gives you the means to pave the way for all of that.
