Virgo - February 2020
How are you, Virgo?! Relationships could feel rocky in February, as Mercury turns retrograde in your house of romantic partnerships on the 17th! The first half of the month should run fairly smoothly, with plenty of opportunities for talking out your issues and discussing where you want to be next. But tread carefully at this time when trying to reach agreement or make concrete plans together, because these plans could change once Mercury goes into reverse. His conjunction with the Sun from the 23rd to 29th is good at least for reviewing and reflecting on your romantic intentions and ambitions, and contact with Mars during this period might also send you a rather fabulous new romance if you are free, in the form of an assertive, dynamic and passionate character who will have a significant impact on your life over the next few months. With Mercury retrograde this could be a person you have met before, but the timing wasn’t right then.
The full Moon of the 9th illuminates your house of secrets and hidden thoughts, and private information about you or a loved one could reach the public domain at this time. Although this will cause some discomfort, the purpose of this lunar transit is to encourage you to be open and honest about your private life, so that you can live as you want to live with nothing holding you back. It’s also a highly spiritual time for you in which work on your psychic self will be of immense benefit at an emotional level. The lunar cycle starts again on the 23rd, bringing an important new friend or work colleague into your world. Look out for some fabulous days this month for making connections and working co-operatively with others too, namely the 1st to 3rd, 18th to 20th and 28th to 29th.
Plans for continuing your formal education will be back on track this month, as erratic Uranus finally settles back into forward motion in your house of learning and life experiences. Attempts at studying, training or travelling have taken you on a bumpy ride full of ups and downs over the past few months, and whilst that restless desire to know something more of the universe persists, you will at least feel now that you have a plan. Uranus’s connection with the Sun after the 20th enhances artistic ability and the expression of unique ideas, and will take you into the path of some interesting and rather rebellious characters who may need your support to create some structure in their world. Virgos with an August birthday could feel especially excitable throughout the month in fact, as Uranus trines your natal Sun; your creativity will be intensely powerful and you will feel compelled to express your originality at all costs.
Venus makes her way to your financial sector on the 8th, where she will be assisting you in making the right choices about your loans, credit cards and business transactions. This should be a fairly lucky time for obtaining credit, and if you need monetary support, you won’t have to look too far to find it. She does create some conflict in the heavens at this time however, so take extra care around the choices you are making here. A square with the Moon’s nodes between the 11th and 16th is likely to create some issues connected to borrowing and lending money among friends, and conflict from Jupiter and Pluto after the 18th creates a hedonistic and rather impulsive atmosphere around spending on leisure activities; keep a close eye on where your money is going! Have a wonderful month!
