Alright, Virgo, it’s your time to shine! The Sun has finally come back around to wish you a happy birthday and mark another year on the calendar. Scroll down to find out what you can expect for the year ahead!
It’s been a pretty good year for us Virgos, all things considered, and now it’s time to embark on another 12-month journey. If you guys didn’t know, I, too, am a Virgo, so this yearly lovescope is a bit more personal than most that I wrote. I’m excited to see what’s ahead, and I hope you are too. Let’s go through and take a look!
The month of August is almost over, but we’re just getting started. With the Sun entering your sign on the 21st there is now what’s called a stellium happening in Virgo for a few days and this is going to place a lot of focus on you and all those little Virgo tendencies and habits that you subconsciously focus on. The energy here is not bad, however, considering the planets we have to work within Virgo.
You’ve still got about two weeks left with Jupiter hanging out in your sign and with the conjunction between first your ruler, Mercury, on the 21st and then Venus on the 28th, people just aren’t going to be able to resist you and your practical ways.
Communications around the 21st will go well and open new doors for you and love will seem a lot more possible as we end out the month of August. Mercury is going into retrograde on the 31st of the month, though, and with that comes misunderstandings and some little bouts of stress.
Avoid entering into new relationships and if you get yourself into one of those situations where someone doesn’t call like they said they would, check and make certain your phone didn’t just go out or some other issue didn’t come up that prevented you from noticing that they did make the attempt.
September starts out with a bang with a Solar Eclipse happening in your sign on the 1st. This will push you to start something new and with an opposition between the Eclipse in Virgo and Neptune in your 7th house of relationships, there will be a definite need to strike a balance in your relationships. Whether you need to start sticking up for yourself more or just need to put yourself out there more often, this lunation will bring that need to the fore of your thoughts and push you to do what needs to be done.
Neptune here can make things a bit hazy and can actually try to persuade you to put off whatever it is you need to do for another day. Don’t. Neptune can give you a more romanticized view of whatever it is that’s occurring, so be sure that you’re not looking at whatever relationship issues arise through rose tinted glasses. See things and people for what or who they are and deal with situations accordingly. It will pay off in the end.
You’ll be able to connect emotionally with someone who makes you happy in the month of September with a lot of energy flowing between your 1st house of self and the 5th house where we find love, romance, and happiness. This is great, and it indicates that you’ll be evolving in some ways. Out with the old and in with the new is what this solar year is all about for you when it comes to love, and trust me, it’s going to lead you to some wonderful places.
The Lunar Eclipse happening in your relationship house on the 16th is placing even more emphasis on relationships this month. Things could get a bit hairy and you could decide to put an end to some aspect of your relationship, possibly the entire lot, but this is only if it’s a toxic relationship that isn’t working for you.
On the other hand, this could actually bring you and your partner even closer together, it all depends on the details of your particular situation. There’s a karmic kind of feel to what’s happening with your relationships now and anything you start with someone special could feel a bit fated. Go with what feels right and trust your first instinct.
October starts out with a New Moon in Libra pushing for a better sense of balance within your life. By now Jupiter has moved into Libra, as well, and Venus is moving through the watery depths of Scorpio, so a lot of the focus has shifted from being on you. Now you can really start to work on getting things into order just like you like it.
Mars moves into your 5th house of love, happiness, and creativity and you’ll be feeling driven to do the things that make you the happiest. Your energy is high when it comes to romance and you may find yourself being pursued by someone you really dig. If you are already attached this can show a time when you can spice things up and add a little more fun and excitement to your relationship. Passions will run high for the next several weeks, so make the most of that!
With Venus in Scorpio, you will be well received in conversations and communications with those around you. Discussing your deepest fears or your fantasies is appropriate now and you can comfortable open up to your partner about these things. It’s a good time to bond and get to know each other better, especially around the 9th of the month.
The Full Moon in Aries makes a direct connection with the unpredictable Uranus on the 16th and will affect your 8th house where we find our deepest connections. This is an area of your chart that shows a great deal about our more primal side. With Uranus in the mix, this Full Moon will surely be full of surprises and could create uncomfortable situations for you. Do your best to go with the flow and not let nothing rattle your cage under this transit’s influence.
On the 20th of the month, Mars makes a direct connection with Pluto in your house of romance and happiness. This is a huge indicator for passion, so be sure you are ready for it. This could mean a date night you won’t soon forget, so freshen up before you go out! Venus in Sagittarius here suggests a feeling of free love and a lighter, more optimistic view on romance. Perhaps someone new will be entering into your life with a fiery burst of passion you’ve been longing for.
The New moon in Scorpio makes a positive aspect with Neptune in your relationship house on the 30th. Your ruling planet, Mercury, is involved in this lunation and shows a good time to work on how you communicate with your partner. There can be a dreamy, romantic feel to conversations now, and you may feel almost psychically connected to the one you’re with. Saturn and Venus make a direct connection on this same day, however, which could put a bit of a damper on whatever attempts at romance you make. Work with what you got.
Things are looking up for romance in November with Venus moving into your house of romance on the 12th. For the next 4 weeks, you will experience bouts of happiness and you may enter into a new relationship. If not a new one, you’ll have the opportunity to add some romance to your current relationship. Venus in this area of your chart has a different feel than what you experience with just Mars here. Where Mars brings passion and intensity, Venus has a much softer, more loving feel. This is a great month to fall in love.
The Full Moon on the 14th happened in a fellow Earth sign, Taurus, and illuminates your spiritual side. Mars moves into Aquarius at this same time and your energy shifts to making certain that you’ve handled all of the little details you are responsible for. Always the worker bee, you’ll have plenty of focus to help you get things done over the next few weeks.
Venus, still in your 5th house of happiness and romantic relationships, makes a connection with Pluto, on the 25th, and things can become very exciting. There is a lot of passionate and primal energy moving through your love life at this time and you may find yourself experimenting and trying new things with your partner. The level of closeness here is high and the connection you can build is one that could be unbreakable. Love feels intense, but right under this transit.
A New Moon in Sagittarius on the 29th is happening in your 4th house of home and family and marks a time when you may have a new addition to your home or when you may start on a new family project. All of the energy focused in Sagittarius gives off a feeling of optimism and some new opportunities are sure to show themselves to you.
You can connect with your partner on an emotional level in the first days of December and you feel like they really understand where you are coming from. With the Moon and Venus in your house of romance and happiness, there is a definite feeling of positive energy in your relationship. You may be feeling more flirty now and more like just being yourself around your partner, or if you aren’t attached, around your crush. Have fun with it.
The Full Moon in Gemini will affect your career house and has an intellectual feel to it. You could come to a point of completion with a work project at this time or decide to move on to a new job altogether. With Venus and Mrs both in Aquarius during, this time, you may be considering making some positive changes in your work environment or doing something that makes you happier. Follow your gut. Your focus will be more on work and career than romance now. Don’t worry, the new year has some great things in store for your love life, but for the rest of December you’ll want to focus on tying up loose ends and finding your path.
There’s a lot going on between your two relationship houses in the month of January. Communications and conversations will come more easily, romance will feel more natural and you will be able to make some real headway in the right direction with your partner.
On the 1st Mars and Neptune make a connection in your relationship house which could be an indication of some disagreement over dishonesty or some deception within your relationship, or it can be an indication of a passionate, dreamy period for you. The surrounding circumstances will dictate which way this goes. Venus enters your relationship house on the 4th and brings with it a sense of balance and positive energy to whatever the situation may be.
With Venus here you may find that someone is pursuing you, you start a new relationship or things begin to improve a lot in the relationship you have. The Sun and Pluto are also meeting up around this time in your house of romance, which can bring about situations that are very revealing. You won’t be able to hide anything from your partner so lay all of your cards out on the table and let them know how you feel.
The Full Moon in Cancer happening on the 12th impacts your home life, as well as your big goals and dreams. You may find yourself coming to a point of completion with regard to a group project you’ve been working on or you may have the realization of a new goal you’d like to pursue. Venus connects with Neptune at this same time and Mercury moves into your house of romance making relationships feel romantic and dreamy and enhancing communications between you and your partner. You may feel like you are in a fairy tale and things are just wonderful, so enjoy this time and put down the work for a bit.
The month of February starts out with Mars and Venus huddled up in a more serious house in your chart and can show a time when you feel a need to transform some area of your life. With the involvement of these two love planets, the odds are good that you’ll be feeling the pressure to make some changes in you love life. Whether you want to make improvements to your current relationship or put an end to some things that are holding you back, now is the time to consider getting started.
The Full Moon in Leo lights up your house of personal endings on the 11th and could put you in an uncomfortable position of having to face some issue you’ve tried to stuff down and ignore. It’s best to get it all out and not ignore the inevitable. Handle your business and the stress of this lunation will soon fade away.
Mars and Uranus meet up in Aries on the 25th and you can expect for things to go a little haywire. “Expect the unexpected” should be the mottos of this particular aspect because that’s just what’s going to happen. Whatever you do, resist the urge to be rigid and fight changes in your life. Go with the flow and make the best of any situation for a much smoother ride. Don’t get me wrong, sometimes the can yield good surprises, but sometimes they can seem like the worst thing ever. Whatever happens remember that it won’t last forever and you can get through it. Actually, when I was born these two planets were conjoined, so some good things do come of Mars/Uranus transits.
The New Moon in Pisces happening on the 26th is going to impact your relationship house and can be an indication of starting something new or adding something to your current relationship. After this aspect you won’t be focusing too terribly much on romance for a few months, so take advantage of whatever opportunities you have to make your love life the way you want it to be. Remember that life should be lived happily and if you aren’t currently happy you are the only one who can change that.
The month of March starts off with you feeling a need to get more in touch with your spirituality. You life may be feeling a little unbalanced now and this is the time to work on fixing that. Situations with partners seem to be falling into place and you may be feeling as though you are being guided by some otherworldly force. Go with it.
Venus goes into retrograde on the 6th and will remain that way until the 14th of April.This is when love and romance start to slow down. When Venus is retrograde you don’t want to start any new relationships, make any major purchases or make any big financial decisions, period. With Uranus and Mars opposing Jupiter at this same time those unexpected delays and chaotic situations in life are bound to come up in spades, so you’ll want to be able to focus your energies on damage control, whatever it is that you have to fix—I’m sure there will be something that comes up.
With Venus hanging around and moving back toward your relationship house you will be focused on going over things that haven’t been quite clear to you in your relationship. This could stem from an old romance that’s now over or could have to do with how things are going with your current sweetie. Whatever the case, avoid letting yourself become obsessed with getting to the bottom of things. Sometimes it’s best to just let sleeping dogs lie, you know?
An old flame may come out of the woodwork and want to get back together with you. Do what you feel is right, but this is not usually a successful endeavor, trust me. I mean, normally people are exes for a reason.
The unpredictability and feeling of chaos in the air continue as we move into the month of April. With the Sun now moving through Aries and coming closer and closer to meeting up with Uranus there is almost an electric buzz in the air and you can probably feel it pretty intensely. Things aren’t bad, they just feel weird.
The Full Moon in Libra on the 11th makes some interesting aspects to Jupiter and Uranus and can bring on a flash of realization of what you really want and need in your life. You can expand your life in some amazing ways now and your finances will become a matter of importance for you under this transit.
On the 14th Venus goes direct and the worries of what to do and what not to do while the planet of love and peace is moving backward are now over. What’s neat is that while Venus was in retrograde she moved back into the final degrees of Pisces and into your relationship house. This is great, considering there may have been some recent upsets between you and your partner that Venus can now help to smooth over.
In the month of May, you might be feeling a touch of déjà vu when it comes to romance. Things will be feeling kind of serious and conversations will, no doubt, be very interesting. You never know what will come out of other people’s mouths, so try to keep a straight face when faced with comments that seem meant to shock and confuse you.
The Scorpio Full Moon on the 10th coincides with an intense aspect between Jupiter and Mars and you can find your ability to generate more income to be magnified. Your energy is high when it comes to work and your career and Jupiter in your house of finances brings the best luck you will have in this area of life for the next 12 years. Use this energy to help build that nest egg or to put something away for a rainy day.
As the month goes on there is a generous feeling between you and your partner with Venus and Jupiter aspecting one another. Avoid extravagance and try to not go overboard with it, but there’s nothing wrong with showering your love with affections and working to expand your relationship. Where you could go wrong here is making promises that can’t be kept, so moderation and balance is the key to success with this transit.
June kicks off with Venus and Uranus making a direct connection in Aries while aspecting both Mars and Saturn respectively. This energy is going to bring unusually eccentric and energetic people into your life and could also mean some crazy events happening within your love life. You never know what might happen with Uranus and Venus nestled up together so, again, expect the unexpected. Chaos can be stressful, sure, but it can also be brilliant—Remember that.
A Full Moon in Sagittarius on the 9th illuminates your home and family life and this is where your focus will be for a bit.

Spend some time taking care of family issues and you’ll feel lighter all around.
With Venus in Taurus now you could find yourself attracted to someone who’s not from the same geographical location as you are, or you may end up in one of those long distance relationships. Travel id favored now and you can actually learn a lot about someone when you have to rely on phone calls and written communications. Explore your options and do what makes you happy. Your feeling of optimism are high as the month wraps up and you are ready for whatever tomorrow has to bring.
July starts out with Venus leaving Taurus and making her way into chatty Gemini. Under this transition energy, you need a partner who can stimulate you mentally and keep up with the conversation. You may be attracted to someone older than you or you may find yourself being pursued by more than just one person.
The Capricorn Full Moon happening on the 9th will light up your house of romance and happiness and will bring your attention to making sure that you are following your heart and doing what makes you happy. This can be a transit that brings you and your partner much closer and allows you to connect on an emotional level, as well as on a spiritual level. At the same time, we have this Full Moon, Pluto and Mars are making an aspect opposing one another but conjoining the Sun and Moon.
Basically, this means that this Full Moon will be one of the most intense to date this year. For you, it may very well mark a time when you will bring an end to a relationship that isn’t working or hat you just aren’t happy in. Don’t be afraid to make necessary changes in your life. Pluto encourages us to make major transformations so that we may grow while Mars gives you the energy and drive to carry on. If you aren’t wanting to bring anything to an end, this could also show a time when passions will be intense and you will get the chance to have some amazingly intimate moments with your partner. Whatever the case may be, this is going to be a week that you won’t soon forget.
As July comes to an end you’ll be wanting to take some time to wind down. It’s been an intense year for you and you’ve gone through a few ups and downs in your love life, but nothing that you haven’t bounced back from.
In the coming months, Saturn will be moving into your house of romance and happiness which is not the very best place for the serious energy of Saturn to be. Along with Pluto, who’s been there for the last few years, you’ll definitely be experiencing some changes within your love life.
Take care to keep things on the up and up within your relationships or you’ll be faced with dealing with more problems later. I know this sounds a bit ominous, but really it’s not. Just take into consideration that with regard to love and romance, whatever seeds you sow now will unavoidably be reaped in the coming year.
