VIRGO AUGUST 22 – SEPTEMBER 21
LIFESTYLE, CAREER AND GOALS
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.
FAMILY AND RELATIONSHIPS
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.
YOUR ECLIPSE BREAKTHROUGH
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
