Happy birthday, Virgo!
You head towards your birthday in a deep, introspective mood. Even if you are maintaining a good front, there’s a lot going on behind the scenes with you as August begins, Virgo. Delve into any blocks that may exist especially between you and others – and also you and your dreams. Getting closer, intimacy and the freedom to go for your goals are all going to be themes for you for the coming year. But there’s some digging around in the deep recesses of your psyche to be done first. However, it will be worth it, I promise you.
Watch your energy levels as you may find this fluctuates between extreme highs and lows – as may your mood and your feelings. One minute you may feel ‘at one’ with everyone and the universe in general. Next – unexpectedly cranky and frustrated. As well as ruler Mercury retro, we have exceptionally heavy retrograde weather happening right now. And once Uranus turns retrograde in your 9th from the 7th, this peaks this cycle with a total of six planets retrograde. Retrograde Mars is one of these. The planet of passion and action will move back into your 5th of lovers, children and pleasure from the 13th before it heads direct again on the 27th. Needless to say, this is not a good time to begin a new romance as it may feel as if the chemistry is just not there!
All this retrograde weather has us focused on the past and with ruler Mercury retrograde in your 12th which rules the past, expect the past to feature on more than one level. The inner journey you are on will involve confronting or re-framing elements of your past and your present. This includes your connections. You are in a cycle of preparedness. Your sensitivity and intuitive abilities are enhanced now. You can bring these to bear on your relationships and any dealings you have with others, and also your own life too. This will allow you to identify those clocks between you and your dreams, to intimacy and to them remove them. It will also allow you to see connections for what they truly are. Be prepared to remove those which are toxic or unhealthy. Ditch any negativity in your life, and this also includes any baggage you have been dragging around with you from the past.
Who or what this may be may take a little while to emerge clearly. The period immediately before your birthday brings us a partial solar eclipse in your 12th which falls conjunct that retro ruler. By now you should know that eclipses conceal something. As your 12th is all about secrets and hidden truths this applies double for you. Take it there’s a cover-up going on. Looking back, going over something are retrograde themes so you may end up dealing with something you thought was done and dusted a second time or else you realise you only have part of the picture. Your intuition is your best guide here. It may even give you hints as to what is missing or where you can find it. Pay attention.
But this is all part of a grand design which will allow you to see what supports you and what doesn’t. You’ll emerge from this more open and able to relate better to those who love and support you. And to weed out those connections which don’t. And when it comes to setting your direction for the coming year, all this is designed to put you on the right path.
You’ve had the benefit of Uranus in your sexy self-empowerment sector for seven years. May saw it head into your expansive 9th bringing with it as desire for more freedom. Thinking big and outside the box opens your mind to new possibilities. Being Mercury-ruled, you feel out-of-step with the normal flow of life whenever it is retrograde. Mercury heads direct again just prior to your birthday on the 18th handing you back your optimism. Just remember that while Mercury remains in retrograde shadow, you still don’t have all the facts when it comes to what that eclipse may be hiding.
The 23rd sees the Sun arrive in your 1st. You’re entering a year where you will break free of anything that holds you back or confines you. Get ready for opportunities which will allow you to achieve your dreams! It’s time to set yourself a vision of what you want to experience, do or attract during the next 12 months. And to move confidently in the direction that passion wants to take you. All this is echoed by the inspiring yet grounding Grand Earth Trine between the Sun in your 1st, Saturn in your 5th and Uranus in your 9th. Unshackle yourself from the past and give yourself permission to have what you want! Your Virgo talent for planning will take you far with this aspect.
Does your dream involve you and someone else? The full Moon in your 7th opens you up to relating in a new way. If you are settled, you are more attuned than usual to your partner’s feelings, and when it comes to what you want to do in the coming year, you’ll weave a dream around the two of you that will bring you closer together. Singles – start your engines. It’s no mere coincidence that Mars heads forward again in your romance sector the day after this full Moon. Also, Venus who rules your love life is in her ruling 2nd in your chart which as well as your money, rules people who are quite literally ‘assets’ to you. It’s not just a time to celebrate your birthday. As we head into September, it’s a time to jump-start those dreams.
In a nutshell: What’s the big secret you or someone else is keeping, Virgo? In the run up to your birthday its all about uncovering those truths and setting yourself free. Get ready to fly!
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.
