Virgo - May 2020
How’s it going, Virgo?! Love partners might need to invest in a set of ear plugs in April, as chatty Mercury gets giddy in your house of relationships! He will be here until the 11th, and the channels of communication will be well and truly open during this time, as you feel a need to share all your thoughts, opinions and dreams with your loved one. It’s as wonderful time to have difficult conversations, as you will understand and respect one another’s point of view. Mercury also makes some highly romantic connections here which are fortuitous for expressing love and affection in words. His conjunction with dreamy Neptune during the first week of the month is an imaginative, poetic combination of energies, positive for all kinds of creative self-expression. An optimistic sextile with Jupiter from the 4th to 11th could also send a soul mate into your world, as this lucky aspect turns a casual romantic encounter into something really special and meaningful.
Pluto spends the month almost at a standstill as he readies himself for a switch to retrograde motion on the 26th, and with all that passionate intensity having nowhere to go, a feeling of oppressive inertia is likely to hit, as you strive to move forward with plans and commitments. The focus for this frustrating lack of activity is your house of leisure, hence hobbies and pastimes could struggle to get off the ground, as no-one really seems overly interested in making or committing to plans. Creativity is also likely to suffer here, and it might be a difficult time in terms of finding inspiration for new artistic projects. Pluto’s square with Mercury after the 23rd is also likely to send struggles with payment for a leisure activity or social event, and harsh words could be spoken here as disagreement ensues over amounts owed.
With Venus directing her beautiful light towards your career sector after the 4th, plans for progression in the work place will be back on track. Skills to hone and use to best effect now involve mediation, persuasion and social interaction; your ability to charm, calm and generally cajole others into seeing your point of view will stand you in good stead for navigating your way through all manner of difficult situations. Venus and Mars join forces after the 5th and into the first week of May, a connection which is very positive for pitching business ideas to those who can support you. This is an excellent period in fact for expression of ideas in general to colleagues and superiors, as your eloquent yet dynamic approach impresses everyone around you. Saturn’s influence during the days of the 4th to 12th also provides the efficiency and practicality to get creative ideas off the ground and make significant headway with career plans, and the days around the full Moon of the 8th are fabulous for making money from a new invention.
Uranus’s conjunction with the new Moon of the 23rd could send you on a spontaneous holiday, as a sudden need for freedom from everyday worries and burdens sends you on a search for exciting changes of scene. Long term study plans may also end now, as you change your mind about where you want to be headed. With the Sun also exerting his authority in this part of your chart after the 20th, these last days of the month are marvellous for working on your psychic self; spiritual activities will interest you more than usual, and you may decide to join a like-minded group, who can support you on your quest for enlightenment. Have a wonderful month!
