Virgo 23 Aug - 22 Sep
YOUR YEAR AHEAD 2013
With Neptune in your opposite sign of Pisces in
harmony with Saturn in Scorpio and, from the end
of June, Jupiter in Cancer, 2013 is a great time to get
out and about, to have fun and mingle. Pursuing your
hobbies and interests will be enjoyable and a great way
to meet kindred spirits who share your dreams and aspirations.
If you meet someone who catches your eye be bold and prepared
to make the first move, even if that only involves fluttering your eyelashes or offering to carry their books. Now would also be a good time to invest in clothes and accessories that make you feel fabulous and present yourself in the best possible light. Even if you feel intense emotions, don't play hard to get or too distant especially with someone a bit touchy-feely who wears their heart on their sleeve. At the same time, with Neptune in your relationship zone you might not always be able to see clearly and so don't be too quick to rescue others and be sure to give yourself a quick reality check before you give your heart away.
Worry or confusion over money could be more of a problem than reality and so it's important not to let fear or anxiety about what could happen lead you into taking unnecessary risks or alternatively being too cautious and resisting opportunities that could bring work and financial benefits in the future. Nevertheless, your overall financial health looks relatively strong, and a patient, long-term, low-risk approach to money matters may be the most sensible approach and importantly, the one that offers peace of mind. Virgo's frequently undersell themselves in the market place since financial rewards are usually less important to Virgo than job satisfaction. Nevertheless, this would be a good time to focus on those areas that pay the most for your time and energy.
With Jupiter in Gemini, the career, vocation and status zone of your solar chart until late June, the first half of 2013 should bring growth and opportunities on the work front so don't be bashful and put yourself forward. When Jupiter enters Cancer from the end of June it forms a harmonious triangular configuration with Saturn and the North Node in Scorpio, and Neptune in Pisces. This is a very promising combination and will affect different Sun signs in different ways. For Virgo Sun signs this may bring opportunities to communicate your ideas to others and bring you into contact with some important people who may share your vision and ideals and may have a significant role to play in your future.
Be sensible in money matters but don't let worries over finance prevent you from making the most of your abilities. This promises to be a good period for your career and vocation and the areas of educational, research, metaphysics and psychology are well-starred. If you have something to say about these subjects then this is the time to communicate your ideas and opinions. If your patience is wearing thin having to regularly compromise and cooperate when you'd rather be left to get on with things, you may be more suited to independent activities in which you can become intensely involved.
The next twelve months could bring changes on the domestic front due to new relationships, marriages, new arrivals, relocations and departures. Events are also likely to conspire to bring closer contact and more emotional exchanges with certain relatives and loved ones. Therefore it's important to get the right balance between your personal needs and ambitions and your home and family life. If you don't, you could find yourself preoccupied with your private life and may become a little frustrated if you've little time for anything else. So while it's important to make your domestic situation as happy and harmonious as possible, it would be a good idea to develop activities, interests and relationships away from your home environment.
Being an earth sign, by nature Virgo is matter-of-fact, practical and comfortable with what is familiar, tangible and measurable. Therefore Virgo often tends to be cautious, unenthusiastic and skeptical when confronted with abstract ideas, complex emotions and the invisible realm of life. However, with such a strong emphasis on the three water signs, Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces in 2013, it's likely that strange coincidences, fateful events and the interesting people you meet over the next twelve months will give you cause to reconsider your outlook on life, love, what you thought important and even possible. As you discover the importance of living in harmony with your core values you'll be drawn to pursuing activities that touch your soul. A new, healthier diet could also change your attitude to food and improve your relationship with your body.
