Virgo - January 2020
Happy New Year, Virgo! Love relationships will benefit from Venus’s romantic guidance after the 14th of January, so start the new year as you mean to go on, and show your partner how much you care! This is a lovely time for expressing affection and emotion, and for making happy memories together, especially during the days after the 23rd when Venus forms a highly romantic conjunction with Neptune. You will be more sensitive than usual to tension and difficult atmospheres however, hence you may be inclined to sweep any potential disagreements or problems under the carpet until next month! Keeping the peace will be important to you, so it isn’t the best of periods for dealing with relationship issues. A partner could surprise you with a romantic break when Venus and Uranus join together between the 14th and 20th, and if you are looking for love at this time, unexpected romance may come on a holiday or trip. Lucky days for finding romance also arise between the 18th and 28th as Venus aspects fortunate Jupiter in your house of love.
The full Moon of the 10th is also the first of this year’s important eclipses, and the focal point for this lunar intensity is your house of friends. Opposition here with Mercury suggests disagreements in an important friendship group which could see this group fragment, as others go their separate ways. Although this may cause a little heartache, you will see as time progresses how it has benefitted those remaining and allowed you to have more independence and control over what you want. Significant new friends who lit up your world last summer at the beginning of the eclipse cycle, will suddenly have a very important role to play in your life now. January’s new Moon on the 24th shuffles your working routines around, as a change of department or new colleagues alter the atmosphere. It may take some time to adjust to these changes, but Virgos are renowned for their adaptability, and you will soon settle back into your routine.
Saturn and Pluto are conjunct in your house of leisure again in January, their final meet-up before this long-standing aspect finally starts to lose strength as we move towards the Spring. These two have really been making a difference creatively over the past eighteen months, as you have been offered many opportunities to turn inventive skills into something practical and constructive. It’s time now for you to take stock of what you have achieved and work out a plan for how best you can utilise your leisure time in 2020. An impressive chain of conjunctions between Saturn, Pluto, Mercury and the Sun between the 8th and 17th makes this a fabulous week for starting a new and exciting hobby.
Last but not least this month, make a note of Lilith moving into your house of debts and loans on the 28th, where she forms an immediate connection with Chiron which will last until mid-May. This marks the start of a fiercely independent period for you in relation to finances and the sources from which you acquire your money. You will be set on spending your cash exactly as you please, and in order to do this you will need to break any chains of dependency which force you to be accountable to others, such as partners, family members, friends, financial institutions; anyone in fact on whom you rely to keep yourself afloat financially. This process is likely to take up much of 2020, and from the experience you will emerge with your accounts in a much stronger, self-reliant position. Enjoy your month!
