Areas of Expansion in 2013 for Virgo: Career, Reputation, Friendships, Groups, Causes, hopes
Your Virgo 2013 Horoscope points to areas of life that are destined to expand and grow.
Until June 25, 2013, your ambitions, career, business goals, and reputation continue to grow and develop. Your talents and skills are recognized now like never before. All of the hard work you've put in begins to pay off and is rewarded - or at the very least, recognized. This influence has been with you since June, 2012, although it may have been dormant in the last quarter of the year. February, you are raring to go - ready to grab professional opportunities, and coming across well in terms of public image.
You are in the limelight in some way during this cycle. Although it's a great period for expansion and recognition on a professional level, and you should take advantage of it, choose your projects carefully. Don't take on more than you can handle. Watch also for gossip or mishandling of information. Be wary of situations that could get blown out of proportion or misunderstood. Some elements of your personal life may be exposed, or you could be in the position to put yourself out there when you'd prefer more privacy. While the influence you're experiencing now is ultimately for the good, it can also act to magnify difficult situations in order to get there, and the process can include moments of discomfort.
Your hard work and effort can be recognized now, and you could find yourself in a position that truly suits you. For some of you, more prestige or a higher social standing may be part of the picture now. Family life can improve during this period. You might repair a relationship with a parent or boss.
From June 25th onward, your connections to others, group associations, and friendships expand and grow. Through groups or friends, you might seek a sense of belonging and comfort.
This is a time when you are filled with ideas about the future. You are planting seeds, so to speak, aiming to get started on projects that will reap rewards in the future. While this can be exciting, try not to take on more than you can handle. Your vision is quite optimistic, and you might over-estimate what you are capable of doing down the road! However, one or two projects can be inspiring and also quite innovative.
With more contact with others, whether it's about an expanded in-person group of connections or online, you are sure to come up with new ideas and to be inspired. Others can point you in new directions. There can be a cause that you work towards enthusiastically, possibly related to family. Business income should increase.
Potential negatives: Over-emphasis on activities that take you away from your practical responsibilities, too often. There may be difficulties with a child or lover who is at odds with the energy and time you are pouring into your friendships and causes, particularly in August.
However, for the most part, you are likely to take advantage of this period in your life in order to expand your social life and friends base, and to dream up exciting new paths for the future. This influence will be in effect until July 2014.
Areas of Contraction and Lessons in Simplicity: Communications, Daily Life
Your Virgo 2013 Horoscope points to areas of contraction, restriction, and necessary "slimming down" in order to test for stable foundations. There are always areas of life that require more simplicity. Tests may be part of the picture as you learn that life with only growth and expansion can run away with itself.
The area of your life that requires a "back to basics" approach is the sector that rules communications, learning, and local transportation. There may be tests of sorts in these areas of life, as if the universe is checking that the foundations are strong. Things built on weak foundations may very well crack under the pressure of these tests. Those that are strong will endure and strengthen.
This influence began October 5th, 2012, and is with you until September, 2015. It can be felt most strongly earlier or later in the cycle, depending on when you were born.
Challenges can come to your communications. You may feel pressure to produce ideas, and to make them work in the "real world". A certain somberness in your outlook may be characteristic of this phase, as it may be a time of worry. It may seem like acquaintances and sometimes siblings are blocking your growth in some manner, and these relationships may be strained as a result. Although you have a desire to make contacts, you are now rather preoccupied with learning or other mental projects, and you may view idle chit-chat as a waste of time. You may feel an unusual pressure to structure your time and effort, and to cut out communications that seem unnecessary. You may at times feel rather overwhelmed by such things as errands, red tape, and other such day-to-day "disruptions". By the end of the transit, however, you will have ideally gained a greater depth of understanding, having focused on information and communication that you really can use to feel more effective in the world.
There is a great need now to structure your life by way of schedules, managing daily details and your time more effectively. There can be some problems with local transportation -- getting from point A to point B. There can be some restlessness or an urge to get out and about, but you might feel weighed down by your daily responsibilities.
However, this is also a time of increased practicality and esteem. You are more reliable than usual. You procrastinate less. You could have the opportunity to turn a dream into a reality on the lines of a communications or learning project, and involving a partner. There can be strong communication between you and someone special. Romantic relationships and structured learning can be especially rewarding in March and September-October. 2013 can also be a very good year for communication with children. Relationships can be enhanced with more communication and openness, and children tend to listen to your advice.
Areas of Excitement, Innovation, Independence, and Speed: Intimacy, Self-Knowledge, Finances
Your 2013 Virgo Horoscope points to areas of your life that seem to speed up so that you are able to take some risks, innovate, and revolutionize.
In March 2011, you entered a lengthy cycle in which your intimate world and shared resources can be unpredictable and unusual, but also inspiring and exciting. This influence is with you again, throughout 2013 and beyond. Your intimate life and support systems from others are stimulated and opened. These areas of life can be the wild card area of life, but also highly stimulating and innovative. You may be far more experimental when it comes to opening up yourself on sexual and intimate levels. There can be some experimentation in your relationships for some of you; for others, there may be less interest in, or possibly some fear of, intimacy right now. You do need to watch for over-confidence with others who might squander your shared resources, however.
You will be learning a lesson in detachment during this cycle - sudden changes in the support you receive from others can force you to become more independent financially. Prepare yourself for fluctuations by settling as many debts as you can. Watch for gambling or risk-taking with money (and a partner who may be doing same) all year, but especially in May and October-November. Watch your heart as well during these periods, as there can be some problems with intimate partners who can come and go and leave your head spinning. Friendships can be complicated in August. You may be attracting people who have different ideas about the intimacy of your relationship than you do.
Areas of Change, Purging, & Transformation: Love Affairs, Children, Creativity, Recreation, Learning, Communication, Transportation.
Your 2013 Virgo Horoscope reveals areas of life in which change and transformation take place. It's a time for "out with the old, in with the new".
Love affairs can bring intense personal transformations this year and beyond. This is a long-term influence that has already been present in your life, and will be with you for many years to come. You may be meeting people who turn you inside out, and through experiences with them, you learn more about your own power over your life. While experience is good - it builds character - protect your heart and your body by employing some caution with new people in your life. March-April and September-October are strong for more enduring and rewarding personal relationships. More challenging periods are possible in May, August, and October-November, when there can be sudden events or circumstances that change the direction of your love life.
In 2013, your ability to manage the demands of daily life is tested, and changes may be necessary in order to become more effective. Your personal belief system is also evolving this year. Transportation can be an issue. Opening up communications with others is a challenge but also a potential joy this year.
