A solar eclipse that occurred toward the end of 2019 on December 26th serves as your kickstart. This eclipse, matched with other cosmic trends, will ensure that your light shines and that people take notice. This could be the beginning of a love affair, or the successful launch of an artistic venture.
This means, of course, that you must step out from behind everybody else. We know you prefer to be the one pulling the strings instead of on stage, but on stage is exactly where you belong. The lunar eclipse that follows on January 10th sees you leaving behind the group or troupe for your own show, and guess who the starring role will be? You.
As you begin your labor pains, significant others may be on the sidelines waiting for your cue on where they stand. Important partners may not support this new and improved version of you, or maybe they do, but do not know how to show up for you. Back and forth is indicated during the late winter months, so be patient as you work to find a balance between “self” and “other.”
The spring months, meanwhile, see you focused on new commitments. You may be considering a leap of faith at this time, whether it is the start of your own entrepreneurial venture, or a hiatus abroad to expand upon this year of self-expression. What develops now may be revisited in the fall, so be deliberate with any financial investments or partnership mergers.
You continue to do your thing throughout the year until cosmic weather brings a storm mid-May through June. An extended review will be in effect impacting you on the career front. Plans put in motion may need to be reconsidered as professional opportunities are considered. Whether this comes in the form of a performance evaluation or your candidacy is being considered for a promotion, an assessment is underway.
Keep in mind that you’ve been putting your best foot forward since we opened 2020, Virgo – you’re prepared for new opportunities. Any anxiety felt may be with regards to how long things take to solidify. Eclipses and a mercury retrograde phase will only prolong an ongoing process.
We’ve got three eclipses this summer instead of the regular two. A lunar eclipse peaks on June 5th, and then again on July 5th, bringing a completion of activities on the domestic front and with creative aims. You may find that a career opportunity is offered to you as a result of your unique skills and talents, which may require a relocation.
Same is true if you are completing an important renovation on the home front, or you and a romantic partner decide to move in together. This could also be interpreted as the completion of an important milestone for a child who lives with you.
The solar eclipse, meanwhile, peaks right at summer solstice on June 21st. This event will bring a potent new start involving a new affiliation. The extended assessment may lead to a new start within a department, company or organization. Same is true if a creative venture receives funding from associate investors.
As all this energy unfolds, however, there are still pauses and delays. A new start is coming in an important group or institutional setting, but mercury retrograde may change plans temporarily before you know where you stand. Be patient as things settle.
The end of July and into August sees a calming influence in effect after a few stormy weeks. You will get a brief reprieve; tumultuous weather returns by September.
The end of fall brings turbulent cosmic events that will impact us all. You, dear Virgo, will experience this the most in important commitments, contracts and other agreements. Contract negotiations may reach a standstill. Partnership agreements may expire leaving you uncertain of where you stand in a business deal. A home mortgage may also undergo grave delays – all these setbacks will be in effect through mid-November.
October further complicates things as another mercury retrograde cycle sees delays around personal finances and resources. If you have money tied into a stock or investment, investment obstacles may bring additional money concerns. Same is true if a property matter requires more spending on your part than you had anticipated.
This part of the year will be the most challenging, and your only options will be to either lean back or find a working resolution in the interim. November brings a shift as obstacles involving personal finances, mergers and investments lift. But it will take until the end of the year before steady progress is made.
Calm is restored at the end of 2020, and another pair of eclipses will close us out. A lunar eclipse on November 30th brings a completion on the career front most likely related to what was under review during the months of May and June. Meanwhile, a solar eclipse on December 14th brings a new start on the domestic front; you will shift your attention away from work to focus on your family.
This topsy turvy year will keep you on your toes, Virgo. But at least you will show up authentically you. Remember that creative self-expression is your aim as you receive more love, acknowledgement and recognition for all that makes you special and unique.
A commitment to your own truth will ensure that you end the year on a successful note, and busy days will follow you into 2021 as new opportunities abound. Better get organized!
Happy New Year, Virgo!
