Virgo - January 2018
Hi there, Virgo! Mercury lingers in your domestic zone until the 11th of January, so get those important conversations in with family members while the communication channels are open! This is a good time to have a family conference or clear up misunderstandings, you will be honest and concise about what you want. You may find there is more activity than usual around your home as the new year arrives, there will be extra noise and chatter, and you will probably have more paperwork to deal with in connection to a property or household repairs. Mercury and Uranus link up during the first week of the month, to add unexpected good news in relation to an inheritance or family windfall; this is also an excellent time to enter a joint financial venture with a loved one.
The first month of 2018 sends us two full Moons, and the second of these is also an emotional lunar eclipse, so new year resolutions will be particularly poignant. The full Moon on the 2nd draws attention to friendships, and a web of connections between the Moon and other heavenly bodies during the first week of the month will make it a rather intense period among friends. Neptune and Mars will make this a time of compassion and forgiveness, and a face from the past could return to your world at this time. You have more work to do together and there is a lot of healing to be done. Opposition with Venus creates some tension around plans, however, as others in your social circle seem intent on doing exactly the opposite of what you want! The eclipse on the 31st shines a light on your house of secrets, and hidden information is likely to come to light which will have significant impact on you. Information needs to be out in the open so that relationships can move on in an open and honest way.
Venus adds some sparkle to your house of romance until the 18th, so this is a wonderful time to find love, or simply just to have fun and enjoy mixing with new faces. The new Moon on the 17th is especially fortunate for finding new love, and a sextile with Mars will bring honest and dynamic people into your world who will let you know what they want from the start. Mercury and Jupiter connecting after the 21st will also make the last week in January a wonderful one for meeting up with generous people who will become top of your friends list. Just take care around feelings, Venus conjunct Pluto right through to the 17th will mix in some jealousy and obsessive emotion. The Sun connects with Neptune between the 1st and 10th, a marvellous aspect for taking on a new creative project with a love or business partner.
Keep a close eye on credit cards and loans in January; Uranus will be direct after the 3rd in the part of your chart which deals with such matters, and he will soon be up to his old tricks, creating unsettling situations around finances for you to navigate. This is not the best of times to apply for credit, you probably won’t have all the information you need and you may not get the result you hoped for. Watch out also for your partner’s income being a little erratic this month. Uranus will connect with Venus and Mercury after the 9th and this could lead to losses when gambling or partying. Be careful with your money as impulsiveness is likely to get the better of you! Enjoy your month!
