Au­gust 23 – Septem­ber 22


You don’t re­ally think of it, but you ben­e­fit from a qual­ity that many of the other signs lack – that is pa­tient. True, you can be short-tem­pered with those who are lazy and even with your­self when you’re strug­gling with a chal­leng­ing sit­u­a­tion.

Still, as an earth sign and a Virgo, you have a unique abil­ity to ex­am­ine any task, and to as­sess what needs to be done, and with a thor­ough­ness that wouldn’t even oc­cur to oth­ers.

The earth sign part of your na­ture also un­der­stands the need for pac­ing tasks. And that some things sim­ply must take the time they’ll take – these can’t be rushed.

This ap­plies as much to grow­ing a plant, achiev­ing a goal or deep­en­ing a grow­ing re­la­tion­ship, of­ten you sim­ply need to wait.

But as a Virgo and some­body ruled by Mer­cury, the planet of in­quiry, the planet that’s in­ter­ested in what’s go­ing on, there is an­other side of your na­ture. And that is the por­tion of you that can some­times be im­pa­tient – es­pe­cially if you don’t un­der­stand the rea­son for de­lays, can’t re­or­gan­ise things so they’ll be done or dealt with more ef­fi­ciently – or you can’t find the rea­son cer­tain things aren’t work­ing.

How­ever, dur­ing 2019, there’ll be an­other com­po­nent that height­ens this ten­dency to be im­pa­tient. And that is the in­flu­ence, from March 6, by Uranus, the planet that is all about in­no­va­tion.

It moves into your fel­low earth sign of Tau­rus, and in the part of your chart that’s all about broad­en­ing your hori­zons, in terms of your ex­ist­ing in­ter­ests, things you’ve had in mind ex­plor­ing or study­ing. It could even spur the rest­less side of your na­ture, and get you out and about in your neigh­bour­hood or, per­haps, mean you be­gin ex­plor­ing the wider world.

While you won’t nec­es­sar­ily need to be im­pa­tient about this process of ex­plo­ration and dis­cov­ery, be­cause Uranus re­mains in this part of your chart for a long pe­riod of time, un­til ac­tu­ally 2025, there’s no rush. You have the lux­ury of time.

True, dur­ing 2019, you’ll find that there’s so much that you’d like to do and like to or­gan­ise that you’ll want to put it into or­der.

While that’s log­i­cal, the fact is that the move by the dy­namic Uranus into a new po­si­tion will in­flu­ence every sign in some way, and will also in­flu­ence the world around you. This, in turn, means that what were once sta­ble plans, what were once sta­ble ar­range­ments, will them­selves change and quite pos­si­bly change again.

This means there­fore, that even you at your clever­est as a Virgo and an earth sign, could find that you aren’t able to fig­ure things out. This may be ex­as­per­at­ing. And it also will al­low you to learn a lot about your­self. It’s in­trigu­ing to note that with the Full Moon in your sign, the Virgo Full Moon, which brings feel­ings to a peak tak­ing place in late Fe­bru­ary on the 19th, just be­fore Uranus it­self moves into its new po­si­tion on March 6th.

You could be wrestling with that im­pa­tience. Yet grad­u­ally you’ll recog­nise how much there is to dis­cover if you can stand back and al­low things to un­fold as they must, es­pe­cially be­cause there’s so much new com­ing your way. In fact, with Uranus ac­tu­ally ac­cent­ing new ac­tiv­i­ties and new pur­suits in ways of broad­en­ing your hori­zons, the more you ex­plore and the more pa­tiently you ex­plore, the bet­ter off you’ll be.

The year’s real turn­ing point comes when first the Sun moves into your sign on Au­gust 23rd, and then the Virgo New Moon on Au­gust 30th takes place.

Dur­ing the fol­low­ing two weeks, with the Sun, your ruler Mer­cury, Venus and Mars all po­si­tioned in Virgo – a rare line-up – you’ll find that you’re able to think more clearly about what you’re happy with, what you’re not, where changes might need to take place, and also you’ll be able to fo­cus on those new ideas that, ear­lier in the year, seemed so vague. The rea­son for that is partly be­cause they ac­tu­ally were vague. Dur­ing this pe­riod, those ex­cit­ing new de­vel­op­ments will be­gin to come to­gether, and may be­gin to oc­cur.

But also, you per­son­ally will have be­come more con­fi­dent about al­low­ing things to un­fold slowly. While, you’re of­ten thought of as be­ing pa­tient, when it comes to putting facts to­gether and mak­ing a plan, you can ac­tu­ally be quite im­pa­tient and force is­sues.

Dur­ing 2019, you’ll learn not only how to be pa­tient, but the ben­e­fits that pa­tience brings. And the hint from the plan­ets is ex­actly that – it’s to recog­nise that if you avoid your ten­dency to over­plan and, in­stead, re­lax in the calm ex­pec­ta­tion of the new and pos­si­bly un­fa­mil­iar, you’ll not only get what you wanted, but of­ten in a bet­ter, if unan­tic­i­pated, form.

Uranus, the planet of in­no­va­tion, moves in the part of your chart that’s all about broad­en­ing your hori­zons. It could even spur the rest­less side of your na­ture
