Friday - - Your Stars -


As a Virgo, you dis­like set­ting out on any ven­ture, whether you’re shop­ping for the day or head­ing across the world, with­out a plan. Yet dur­ing this pe­riod of eclipses and un­pre­dictable events, even seem­ingly straight­for­ward ar­range­ments won’t go as you ex­pected or in­tended.

Wor­ry­ing as this ap­pears the first few times it hap­pens, you’ll soon re­alise how much you dis­cover, the in­ter­est­ing and worth­while en­coun­ters you have and, in some cases, the op­por­tu­ni­ties that come from this pe­riod of unan­tic­i­pated twists and turns.

The trick, there­fore, is to or­gan­ise things, but not with the thor­ough­ness you nor­mally would. This ap­plies to your day, week, month, ca­reer if you have one, and even to your long term goals. Soon you’ll be so en­joy­ing who and what you en­counter that in­stead of be­ing cau­tious about the un­ex­pected, you’ll em­brace even sud­den de­vel­op­ments. The trick is to fo­cus on learn­ing from ev­ery­thing, in­clud­ing what’s un­ap­peal­ing. Know­ing this, if of­fers ap­pear or a chance to make a change arises, con­sider it se­ri­ously. Re­mem­ber, you’ll only re­gret what you didn’t do.


Dur­ing pe­ri­ods as unset­tling as the last half of 2017 is, you’ll tend to be cau­tious, watch­ing care­fully to en­sure you can cover ex­ist­ing com­mit­ments. While it’s true, with eclipses on the 7th and 21st shak­ing things up, you’d think cau­tion is wise. But, ac­tu­ally, there’s no bet­ter time to ven­ture into new ter­ri­tory, in terms of ideas or ex­plor­ing ways to make money and to in­vest it.

Iron­i­cally, this will lead to im­por­tant ques­tions about your pri­or­i­ties, that is, what you view as in­ter­est­ing or po­ten­tially worth­while. And, bet­ter yet, with boun­ti­ful Jupiter hav­ing moved to ac­cent your re­sources, from your as­sets and in­come to your ideas about such mat­ters in late 2016 and re­main­ing there un­til mid-Oc­to­ber of this year, good for­tune will ap­pear in many ways. The trick, of course, is to spot it, es­pe­cially since of­ten it won’t nec­es­sar­ily be recog­nis­able for what it is. Ex­plore ev­ery­thing; show in­ter­est in what’s ap­peal­ing but com­mit only with cau­tion, es­pe­cially while Au­gust’s eclipses are shak­ing things up. Find that bal­ance be­tween be­ing su­per in­quis­i­tive yet cau­tious, and you’ll not only learn a lot, you’ll en­joy it.


No sign is more aware of the im­por­tance of be­ing fair to others than Virgo, mostly be­cause as a canny and ob­ser­vant Virgo, you no­tice more about those ar­eas where those clos­est, fam­ily, loved ones and even friends are strug­gling. You can, for this rea­son, be both nur­tur­ing, en­cour­ag­ing the kind of think­ing and ac­tiv­i­ties that would help over­come those is­sues. Still, when nec­es­sary, you can adopt the phi­los­o­phy called ‘tough love’, that is, re­fus­ing to tol­er­ate ex­cuses.

Yet with the thor­ough, prac­ti­cal and canny Saturn ac­cent­ing these close al­liances from 2015 un­til the end of this year, you’ve had some tough lessons to deal with your­self.

Some in­volved dif­fi­cult people, others clashes over seem­ingly sim­ple mat­ters. This is about un­der­stand­ing what makes others tick.

It’s the same for those who’re dat­ing or look­ing for love. It may not be in the form or with the kind of per­son you think it will be. If you can tem­po­rar­ily re­tire that clever side of your na­ture that out­smarts others in games and in life and in­stead fo­cus on what you don’t know about others and the world, you’ll find your­self in a jour­ney of dis­cov­ery as un­ex­pected as it is thrilling.


Tak­ing a chance on some­thing you’re fa­mil­iar with is easy. These eclipses are teach­ing you to sense the prom­ise in the un­ex­pected, to learn from them, and then to dis­cover ex­actly how you’d ben­e­fit.

You’ll be so EN­JOY­ING who and what you EN­COUNTER that in­stead of be­ing CAU­TIOUS about the un­ex­pected, you’ll EM­BRACE even sud­den de­vel­op­ments. The trick is to FO­CUS on learn­ing from ev­ery­thing
