This Month: Virgo
August 2017: August brings a mix of introspective and sociable energy to your world, dear Virgo. Huge stirrings are happening inside of you, but you're also managing to get out and about and divide your time well. While you are in social demand this month, a part of you is likely to remain a little reserved or withdrawn, and this is healthy and necessary! Mercury spends virtually the whole month in your sign, but turns retrograde in Virgo on the 12th, giving you further reason to reflect and rest rather than push big decisions. If others are misunderstanding you in the second half of August, you may very well find new ways of expressing yourself that work and satisfy to boot.
Your mental energies are quickened with Mercury in your sign, favoring any task that involves getting your point across effectively! However, from the 12th forward, it's time to slow down on a mental level. Edit, refine, reflect, and refocus. Allow time for your heart to catch up before moving projects forward. Chances are good that they can wait.
The Lunar Eclipse on the 7th gives you a push to take better care of health, routines, and work. If you've been feeling unhealthy or if you've been slack with routines, work, or fitness, you'll feel particularly uncomfortable with the situation now. A powerful realization of the need to pick up your socks, so to speak, overcomes you now. A deadline or upcoming event may be the trigger. New information coming to light, or strong feelings and epiphanies now, lead to significant adjustments.
Friendships can be lively and smooth this month, with the possible exception of the 15-17 when others may find you withholding or unavailable. Address excesses in your social life, particularly if these are draining your resources, whether this is energy or money! Dividing your time between friends and lovers may be an issue for some of you. For others, you may be struggling with whether to go a project alone or involve others and delegate tasks. A particularly advantageous time for enhancing or attracting relationships is the 9-11. Others are attracted to your ideas and your intelligence. There is a need to nourish both the inner and outer life now, and you tend to see people as the means to feed your well. What you begin at this time may slow down, however, once Mercury retrogrades on the 12th, so aim to take things slowly.
The Solar Eclipse on the 21st reinforces a need to look within. August is important for seeking out a balance between doing and resting, and slowing down can, in fact, benefit you. The Sun moves into your sign just a day later, on the 22nd, and while you receive extra attention, you're nevertheless still feeling hesitant about throwing yourself into new situations.
Efforts to improve family life, particularly on the level of structure and order, resume full force in the last week of August. It's a powerful time for organizing your things. Much of August feels like you're doing preparation work or laying down foundations. Make it your goal to be patient and enjoy the process.
The state of your inner world is especially active and at times chaotic this month. Try to treat this period as a time for gathering your energies and closing those ventures that no longer serve you well.
You have wonderful cosmic support for home and family life, security, comfort, and finances in the last week of the month. It's also a time when you're coming into your own, seeking out more from life, but also asking what you can do to make life more rewarding.
This Year: Virgo
2017 Yearly Horoscope Overview
You begin the year with a stronger need to feel rooted, secure, and comfortable, dear Virgo. If you’ve played your cards right, a raise, bonus, large gift, or some other material increase can come into your life. Even if material benefits are not evident during Jupiter’s transit of your solar second house (until October), it can be a time of indulgence and abundance. It’s a great time to build on existing projects and businesses, as well as to further develop your talents.
There are likely to be some pressures on the home front in 2017, but also opportunities to really get your domestic life into order. Organizing or reorganizing your home, downsizing and streamlining where necessary, and establishing better and more efficient routines will be helpful. Gone is the theme of previous years where you felt a conflict between the old and the new. In the past, you’ve often weighed the pros and cons of sticking to tried and true patterns and moving forward to unexplored territory. This year, there are distinct opportunities to combine these things creatively. Your strong desire to reach new levels of achievement and success no longer clash as rigidly with your desire for security by keeping the status quo.
Some of you are struggling with a clash of values when it comes to a love relationship and for some of you, with children, however. Overspending may be an issue this year that you’ll want to nip in the bud. Many Virgos are discovering creative talents you never knew you had, as well as gaining more confidence about sharing and expressing them. As a Virgo, you can sometimes find it difficult to give yourself enough credit or value. However, harnessing the power of Pluto, although a little tricky at times, can help you learn to love and value yourself more. Focus on healing and strengthening by ridding yourself of attitudes and habits that make you feel less than powerful.
Home life continues to need extra attention and effort in 2017, although the long-term influence that drives this theme comes to an end in mid-December, so many of you will be wrapping things up in this regard. As well, you get more support this year than you have in the past for getting your home and domestic life into order. Financial and emotional support is easier to rally up. Even so, you might be feeling the weight of responsibilities and feel “alone in charge” at times. You will be attempting to bring more structure and order to your home life, as you may be feeling a little stifled in your current surroundings until you do. In recent years, when it comes to home and family, there have been times that you feel the walls are closing in on you–there may have been a sense of heaviness when it comes to your responsibilities, or you literally feel cramped in your personal space. However, you have the chance to restructure your domestic life by reorganizing your personal space as well as your routines and schedules.
An eclipse in February completes a set that was quite personal for you as you explored your needs for both relationships and independence. This is the final cosmic nudge towards improving or solidifying a partnership. A retrograde cycle of Venus from March 4-April 15 can lead to more review of your feelings and can temporarily complicate a relationship. From May forward, you know your heart, and you are ready to make decisions. You’re also in an excellent position to add more healing and relaxing activities to your routine. You recognize the benefits of coming to a better work-life balance.
Relationships with siblings and possibly neighbors can be stimulating and even healing from October forward, and activities close to home (and on or in the home) are very appealing now. This period in your life is a time for building a solid foundation. Understand that moderation at this point in your life is necessary for your spiritual growth and your physical body as well.
The last quarter of the year can be quite fabulous for winning others over to your ideas and plans. You are also quite hungry for new learning experiences and personal interests or projects, and while you can have a lot on your plate, you’re likely to thoroughly enjoy learning, connecting, and sharing your ideas with others. Partnering up to learn or work can be in focus. Saturn moves in at the tail-end of the year to support your efforts to meet your responsibilities. You begin an excellent cycle for a steadier love life and profitable hobbies.
This Year in Love: Virgo
2017 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!
