This Month: Virgo
August 2016: August brings very sweet energy into your life, dear Virgo, with two planets, Venus and Jupiter, that have earned the title "Benefic" in your sign and coming into alignment. Mercury is also in your sign for an extended stay, and the Sun moves into Virgo on the 22nd. As such, there is a major focus on your personality this month. Your finer and more appealing qualities are emphasized. Yes, your ruler, Mercury, will retrograde on the 30th in your sign, but ideally, you have learned how to handle this rather frequent occurrence, and it certainly affords you a little more time to explore your inner world.
As well, some important influences are urging you to rest, recoup, and relax this month. The New Moon on the 2nd is one such reminder - you may need to take care of loose ends now. Working behind the scenes benefits you. On the same day, Mars moves into your home and family sector, so that while you're likely to get some social attention and even admiration, a good part of you is a little "hard to get" now. It's a necessary, healing phase. The rest and privacy you need are yours, although there may be plenty of stimulating dramas playing out around you.
The Sun in your sign gives you more power and courage from the 22nd forward. Home life becomes more animated and family life demands more of your time this month.
Jupiter is on its last leg of its journey through your sign, which lasts until September 9th. The 21-22 and 27-29 can bring sweet rewards and perhaps some recognition for all of the work or charity you've been doing quietly behind the scenes. Your personality shines. People see your value. This is a winning time for attracting others to you through your unique self-expression and vision, as well as for putting past grudges behind you.
This Year: Virgo
2016 Yearly Horoscope Overview
2016 can be a popular and fruitful year, dear Virgo. Bountiful Jupiter continues to transit your sign until October 9th, encouraging you to find everything to love about life, and about yourself as well! Jupiter comes around to a sign for approximately a year, about every twelve years. This particular Jupiter transit occurs while your sign is receiving some challenges from Saturn, Chiron, and Neptune, however, so it may feel a little tamer at times. This may, in fact, be a good thing, as Jupiter can be extravagant and excessive on its own, and often needs a little Saturn to bring it down to earth.
When Jupiter isn’t beleaguered, life is all about discovery, experimentation, opening up, getting around, and enjoying experiences that you typically overlook or don’t often feel empowered enough to grab. This is a time for a fresh start in some significant way. For some, it will be about home and family. For others, it’s about finances. April and May are special for a sense of freedom on financial or intimate levels, and much of the first six months of 2016 is powerful for finding yourself, or your voice, through creative projects and communications. New ventures can be especially successful, but so can reviving projects already in progress. You’re seeing opportunities where you previously saw obstacles.
You’re certainly vying for more freedom, but responsibilities to home and family do need attention. There can also be some ups and downs or times of dysfunction in a partnership that can seem to intrude on this very powerful time of self-discovery. Don’t be afraid to work on making yourself happy – in fact, it’s the major key to success now. Explore independence. Let your personality shine. Others are enjoying, recognizing, and even applauding your creative endeavors. Some are turning to you as a leader.
A Solar Eclipse in March is an important one for recognizing partnership needs, and the Lunar Eclipse in September can push the matter. Use the energy of the Lunar Eclipse in late March to sort out any tricky financial problems, particularly related to debts and shared resources.
You need to test and taste experiences for yourself and by your own guidelines in order to truly believe in them. Taking the lead is important in 2016. Attend to your responsibilities, but draw up boundaries with others if they are over-stepping (and current influences suggest that they are likely to do so). This is a time for taking some of yourself back, as you’ve been giving so much that you may have begun to forget what you truly want. Neptune and Chiron in your partnership sector all year and beyond can have the effect of blurring boundaries to the point that what you feel you need may, in fact, be what a significant other wants. Jupiter in your sign is attempting to even this out.
You have wonderful opportunities to work on your communications in 2016, particularly from is essential this year, particularly in the first seven months, when assertive, fiery Mars moves through your solar third house of communication for most of that period, some of this time in retrograde motion. You are taking charge and taking the lead when it comes to learning, communicating, commuting, and connecting. There may be some problems with brusqueness and a tendency to impulsive speech and movement, but you’ll get the chance to refine this, particularly in June.
Love should be more about your needs this year than about giving if you’ve been out of balance in this arena. In reality, relationships are rarely even in the give and take department – there is a natural ebb and flow in relationships as there is in other life arenas – but overall, this should balance out. In 2016, it’s your turn to take some personal space and to rediscover your personal needs.
The work you do on sorting out your finances, debts, and obligations begins to pay off considerably by the final quarter of 2016. Confidence in your own income or ability to provide for yourself and any dependents gets a real boost, and this can translate to improved earning power. This will increase considerably in 2017, but for now, you’ll begin to see some nice progress. Many of you will be boosting up and improving your comfort and feelings of security in the home.
This Year in Love: Virgo
2016 Love Horoscope for Virgo
Jupiter having moved into your sign on August 11th, 2015, is the big headline for this period, dear Virgo. This transit that lasts until September 2016 occurs only every 12 years (approximately). This Jupiter transit boosts your confidence, personal presence, and likability factor. People enjoy your company and are drawn to your positive energy. You feel more entitled to happiness and rewards, and this tends to bring positive opportunities into your life. If you’ve done your inner “work” well, this can be an especially rewarding period. Your confidence in yourself and faith in the world are growing exponentially. You are more willing to have new experiences and to rid yourself of those things that have been holding you back from truly living and owning your life. You are taking more “me” time, which is in fact long overdue.
The last time Jupiter transited your sign was from August 2003 to September 2004 (and before that, from September 1991 to October 1992). Jupiter transits are different for everyone, and different for each person at different cycles in their lives, but it can be helpful to look back at these periods to see what was going on then.
Keep in mind that although Jupiter transiting one’s own sign is generally considered fortuitous, it’s a more independent and freedom-seeking period than a relationship-focused one.
From October-November 2015 forward, the North Node is in your sign. This will continue throughout 2016 and until May 2017. This transit brings a strong need to discover your independence, and very much reinforces the transit of Jupiter in your sign – freedom and independence are everything to you right now! Your challenge is to learn how to rely on yourself, which ultimately will bring you joy and opportunity. This does not mean excluding a partner from your life. It simply means that in order to experience balanced relationships, you need to work on building internal peace, rather than focusing on achieving peace and balance through relationships. It’s time to take care of yourself and discover or re-discover your true needs and desires!
