Readjust and reset as many times as you need

No more replaying the past

Prepare to welcome in the new

Time to press the reset button as many times as you need to, Virgo. Treat yourself and your life as your own best work in progress. Something freer and more satisfying results from reinvention or you simply reframing what you do.

Ruler Mercury will enter its retroshadow phase on the 21st. I don’t need to over-sell you on what that means. Just before it meets with gorgeous Ganymed (15th) and trines Uranus in your 9th (16th). Tune in to your wellbeing and please, don’t ignore deeply repressed truths which may continue to surface while the Sun and Venus are in your 12th.

You are days away now from the start of your freshly baked cycle. But due to your ruler slowing down this may see you having a stocktake or as I said, readjusting those priorities or even your image. The processes of reinvention and rebirth are yours to play with thanks to Venus’s trine to Jupiter in your 8th (18th) and the Sun’s to the Galactic Centre in your 4th (20th). What you don’t need now is a replay of the past. So do take your time when it comes to defining what or who you want to be in the year ahead.

What your body is telling you, the mind, body and spirit link holds the keys to this. Yes, connections you make between something and how you feel may be a little confronting. But think of this as ripping off the psychic Band-Aid so real healing and wellness can happen. You need to pursue the love or even the habits that are good for you now. Let your body talk, Virgo and when it does, do listen.

In a nutshell: You’re days away now from your new cycle. Don’t be afraid to experiment when it comes to how you want to be seen. If you want to attract the new and different, reset that image or try a few on for size!

Prepare for something bigger

Authenticate your soul

Happy birthday, Virgo!

Anything that is holding you back or blocking your progress will be removed this month ahead of the Sun’s arrival in your sign on the 23rd. This may surprise, provide a revelation, shock you out of complacency or simply arrive in the form of an offer you can’t refuse, Virgo.

Watch for what this is the first week of August as anything unexpected or surprising could set your future on a new evolutionary path as Mars and Uranus collide in your 9th on the 1st and then Venus in your 11th sextiles both across the 2nd – 3rd. This tells you no matter the outward appearance, it’s all for your ultimate benefit.

Let’s get this party started! Ruler Mercury arrives in your 1st bearing news from the 4th and simply making you ready for the new to begin. You are fully engaged now with setting possibilities in motion for yourself. Or visualising what these could be. Plans are initiated or begun. Meanwhile change is in the air bringing new beginnings ahead of your fresh cycle thanks to the Sun and Venus from the 11th, in your 12th angling to Jupiter and Chiron in your 8th. This may be something you have been waiting on and could be linked to your money, income or joint assets. There’s a transformation taking place for you this August and again, it is set to free you or place your feet on a new path towards opportunity. Be ready to act.

Anything which no longer serves you will fall away between the start of the month and the Sun’s arrival in your sign. Mars is on the move on the 20th into that other Mercury ruled sign – Gemini and your 10th. It will spend an unusually long time in here – right the way through to 2023 in fact due to a Mars retrograde in here. During this time you will pause to assess your career path and progress to date. And adjust accordingly. You may experience a big leap forward at the start of the transit but be waiting until 2023 for the next one.

It will be extremely important to remain mindful of your image and stay boss while Mars is in here whether direct or retrograde. Do not loose your cool. Especially with or in front of bosses or anyone in a position of authority. Take a long term approach to everything. You truly have the staying power to achieve those long term goals now.

Although Mars does not retrograde until October, we are now in heavy retro-active weather. You will begin your birthday cycle with ruler Mercury in retroshadow from the 21st. It will continue to move ahead – into your 2nd on the 26th before Retro Full Fat next month. But you of all signs knows the drill now, Virgo. Once Uranus retrogrades in your 9th on the 24th all the outer planets are backwards meaning this is a major stop, watch and wait period. See this as a refinement time for those plans and dreams. The intense energy in your 12th points to a period of introspection. You intuitively understand that when it comes to the changes you want to manifest in your outer world for your new cycle, they begin with shifts within first.

You may come to the realisation that something cannot or should not continue the way it is and if so, you will initiate steps to end or change that. Mid month provides you with the perfect opportunity to engage with all of the above work. This full Moon in your 6th is known as the Sturgeon, Grain or Lynx Moon. The Moon squares Uranus in your freedom sector while illuminating that hidden element in your 12th house. Something is exposed or uncovered. This could be anything around a habit, belief or thought process or even a connection. Again, your conclusion is that something has to change as a result. Need more? See your full Moon in Aquarius Moonscope.

Best times to initiate this are the 14th – 15th. Supporting yourself and your beliefs, standing by YOU will be your goal now as well as ‘doing the right thing’ as the Sun opposes Saturn on the 14th and Mars in your 9th trines Pluto in your 5th. You know you have a voice and you deserve to be heard and your point of view acknowledged as important as ruler Mercury meets Ganymed in your 1st on the 15th.

Yes, Ganymed is the asteroid particularly aligned to the LGBTQIA+ communities as it embraces acceptance, inclusivity and the right to be ourselves when it comes to our sexuality. But we can say its glourious, gorgeous hues remind all of us no matter our gender identification, that we deserve to be loved and acknowledged for ourselves and we should not feel we have to hide our truth. And that nobody’s identity or preferences are more important than another’s. If you have been made to feel this way, you will speak up and out and be your own best advocate now.

The past will continue to feature while Venus remains in your 12th. This of course includes past loves. Just a reminder as you sift through what still holds true for you and what doesn’t that sometimes the past can be a trap. This month is about freeing yourself from those. So, if the past in the form of a person comes calling, don’t be in a hurry to pick up where you left off unless you want a repeat of it. Which you already know you don’t, Virgo.

Take your time and begin again and slowly if you are tempted to give someone a second chance. Ensure you discuss what derailed you the first time around and how you would do things differently. And if they are saying they have changed, give them enough time to show the changes are lasting. And align with how you too have changed. DO your due diligence when it comes to love now. Not just because of the increase in the retro weather but also due to Mercury’s opposition to Neptune in your 7th on the 21st – the day it enters retroshadow. Is someone telling you what they think you want to hear as opposed to what they really mean? Time is the only way to the truth. And that ‘gut’ feeling, Virgo especially at the end of the month.

On with the new as the 23rd sees your birthday season roll and the astrological start of your freshly juiced cycle begins with the new Moon in your sign on the 27th. You are the adept of the details, Virgo. But now it is time for big picture thinking! Because you are starting your new cycle with your ruler in Retro Lite, think of this truly as planning and preparation time. Hopefully you have embraced self-acceptance and all month long been willing to make those inner changes as well as relinquish what no longer reflects who you are.

There’s still some refinement to go through – but that is what retrogrades are made for! Paint that future in exciting vibrant colours and broad strokes. As the Mercury retrograde kicks in you can add the finer details. Understand that it doesn’t have to be perfect and you don’t have to be perfect either to begin it NOW! You are ready. This new Moon also adds a touch of glamour to your image. For more see your extra personal New Moon in Virgo Moonscope.

The more authentic you feel now, the more you will find others naturally gravitate towards you and want to celebrate with you. Next year begins one of the biggest cycles for expansion you have experienced in a very long time. Where what you imagine can be experienced in some way. So, treat yourself to your own vision of all you will be as you step into fresh starts and new beginnings.

In a nutshell: Happy birthday, Virgo! The Sun and new Moon in your sign this month promise new beginnings spring from those big dreams. You’re laying the groundwork this month for something breathtaking in the future.

Don’t judge a year by how it starts! ‘22 begins with heavy retro weather than may make love and money matters elusive or reverse. But this could turn out to be the very best year for partnerships and personal ambitions you’ve experienced in a very long time, Virgo. It’s all about that higher love for you in 2022!

The love on hold vibe that ‘22 ushers in doesn’t just apply to you, Virgo – but to everyone. So, don’t take it personally! This is all down to Venus retrograde until Jan 29. For you however, it does get a little more intense. First Venus is retrograde in your house of romance and pleasure. It’s not just love or new love that’s the no-no but splurging in those sales too. Take it from me – that bargain isn’t or even if it is, you may fall out of love with that purchase once Venus heads direct again.

All this is gets a double serving due to your ruler Mercury which begins its retrograde in its ruling 6th but then retreats back into your 5th joining Venus in here. Stay away from the stores -on line and off and also that dating app. You actually don’t have long to wait before everything including your ruler, moves forward again. By March we have every single planet in the sky direct again. In the interim, focus on enjoying and appreciating what you have right now rather than acquiring more. That includes love whether this is the romantic kind or not.

If you are now thinking ‘So, what is this year good for then? Or ‘Oh no! This sounds like a re-heated 2020!’ – let me tell you 2022 is anything but that! What gets off to a slow start may in fact turn out to be one of the best years for love and success you’ve experienced in a very long time. In fact – ever. Use the initial slow time in January to get very clear about what you want this year. Especially when it comes to love and partnerships of all descriptions. It will be worth the work and worth the wait by the time April arrives, believe me!

What’s so special about April? As you know, you have Jupiter in your relationship sector for six months of this year. Giving double acts, tempting two-somes and duos the biggest boost you’ve experienced in 12 years. Jupiter in here simply says – don’t go it alone now. But – there’s more! Because Jupiter is always about expansion. Big, bigger – supersized love and potential around another person or party.

Give me a higher love!

It’s not just a once in 12 year opportunity you are entering with regards to a long term connection this year – but a once in 165 year one. Because that’s how long its been since Jupiter and Neptune where last in this house in your chart at the same time. Both Jupiter and Neptune rule Pisces and your 7th. Both function at their highest when in their ruling sign. And they make a cosmic meeting in here on April 12. Handing you one of the best transits under which to join up, double up or draw that perfect love situation to you that you will experience this year.

Remember, both planets are connected to higher learning. While Neptune links you to the past and past lifetimes. So, that higher love could be your love partner – past, present, potential. But that higher love experience could manifest in the form of a new bestie, that mentor, teacher figure, collaborator, activity partner. They could have two legs or four. It’s all love and it’s all about the next stage of your love evolutionary experience. Be bold, be brazen and be open to who or what appears now. And then embrace it!

Of course, given the retro start to the year and the fact Neptune governs your past, a reconciliation or reunion may be how this manifests for some of you. But this transit is also about letting go of the past if that needs to happen to allow the future of love to enter. So please, if you have been hoping an old love will return and they do not come back in effortlessly now, understand the universe has a new plan for love for you now. Release the past and walk open-hearted into your new love future!

This year also brings exploration, opportunity and release into another long term experience cycle as we have the North Node shifting into your 9th which puts the South into your 3rd of ideas, short journeys and the internet. Look to how far an idea could take you or a message you have and what its reach could be now. As well as the call of far away this is also about your locality and short distance travel. And discovering something big without having to go too far – Covid concerns aside.

This also coincides with a similar shift in the eclipse cycle for this year with the axis again cutting across Taurus/Scorpio – your 9th/3rd houses. Travel, foreigners, commuting, communications, study, writing, publishing, speaking, the internet. Use caution around these areas during eclipse season. Just as you would during your retrograde periods in fact. There’s a wise saying that three things cannot stay hidden for long – the Sun, the Moon and the truth. Eclipses conceal the truth or something we need to know. And during an eclipse either the Sun or the Moon is covered up or in shadow. But this reminds us that sooner or later, light returns. It’s a fabulous way to understand what happens at an eclipse. And also reminds us that sooner or later, what the eclipse hides is revealed.

Your eclipse dates for 2022 when using your tried and trusted retro rules as your eclipse safety net will pay off begin on April 30 when we have a partial solar eclipse at the time of the ‘Black’ new Moon in your 9th. This is also the day when Venus and Jupiter meet in your 7th – Venus’s ruling sign. This means love could arrive in disguise but also means if something (or someone) looks too good to be true – it probably is.

Hold on to those values and tight to those retro rules at the next eclipse on May 16. This occurs in Mercury’s ruling 3rd and Mercury is retrograde when this happens. Go with those feelings and if you feel something is ‘off’ – it is.

You have a partial solar eclipse in your 3rd again on Oct 25 so try to finalise projects and plans and get important papers signed by that date. The total lunar eclipse in your 9th on Nov 9th has the Sun conjunct Mercury and opposes Uranus in your 9th. You don’t know the final outcome. Expect reversals or twists in the tale. Above all, use extra caution traveling and watch for storms – electrical and emotional!

Your Mercury retro dates for ‘22 are Jan 14 – Feb 4; May 10 – June 3; Sept 10 – Oct 2. And from Dec 29 into 2023. Allow three weeks either side for retroshadow.

As well as handing you your ticket to the love train, Jupiter also spends six month this year in your 8th or ‘other’ money house. This is also your house of sex and shared assets. So see this house not as scary but as a natural extension of what begins in your 7th. Where things get deeper. You may see yourself handling greater amounts of money or being given access to other people’s resources now. Yes, that includes that boo giving you the key to their apartment. This house also includes mortgages, loans, benefits, legacies, expense accounts, bonuses and perks. Or even intangible assets such as someone putting their contacts or expertise at your disposal.

This is also a house which demands integrity and total transparency. Abuse what you are given under this house and it will ‘blow up’ in your face leaving you with fallout to clear up which can last for years. So please, if you are put in charge of handling someone else’s assets or access to that expense account, bear this in mind. Otherwise – enjoy. Jupiter hands you the keys to the vault in some way. Or the means to transcend a difficult situation which has kept you restricted for far too long. This transit along with the North Node in your 9th (Jupiter’s house) tells you to be ready to fly free – on into ‘23 now. And yes, Virgo. Love will be the wind beneath your wings!
