Virgo (August 23 – September 22):

Your ruling planet, Mercury, steals the show three times this year as it moves retrograde through water signs, reminding us that emotions have their own intelligence. In November, it will make a unique transit to the sun, and you could be published or promoted at that time. In all creative endeavors, work from your heart, even if you feel more vulnerable in doing so.

Your analytical powers of reason will be no match for your intuition this year, and you will need to hone this sixth sense in January, June, and September when it will be necessary to separate truth from fiction in the storylines playing out in your life.

Saturn says commit to nurturing your playful side, even if you have to work at it, and Jupiter’s influence suggests that might mean starting a family or working less to spend more time with your kids. The eclipses in July could lead to breakthroughs of inspiration, when you could feel compelled to express yourself in some way, through speaking, teaching, the arts, or becoming more involved in community affairs.

Eclipses in January and December highlight new beginnings in romance. They can help spice up your love life, especially if you have been in a committed relationship for some time. It’s important to find ways to relax and have fun this year, especially when it comes to love. If you are too serious or worried about the future, you could miss out on some of life’s sweetest moments or block a creative flow.
