A big theme this year is how to maximize your time and communicate efficiently. These are lessons from structured Saturn, which is traveling through your Sector of Learning. The Lunar Eclipse on April 25th is an auspicious time for taking a class and forging new skills. Travel is on your horizon, Virgo. The May 9th Solar Eclipse in your Sector of Journeys has you looking to the future as you consider the places you'd like to visit. On June 25th, lucky Jupiter begins its one-year voyage through your Sector of Alliances. Your friends become amazing resources as you pursue your goals. They have information and connections that are pivotal to your growth.
Your planetary ruler, Messenger Mercury, goes retrograde about three times every year. This year, these periods are February 23rd through March 17th; June 26th through July 20th; and October 21st through November 10th. During these windows of time, you could feel off your game, with your usual efficiency not as readily available. Still, these periods can yield profound results if you take the time to re-evaluate your communication strategies.
Mark the following dates on your calendar: April 20th and 21st; June 7th and 8th; September 14th and 15th; and December 29th through 31st. These are the days when your planetary guide, Messenger Mercury, connects to innovative Uranus and transformative Pluto. If unexpected events arise, know that you have the flexibility and resourcefulness needed to navigate a successful path.
Relationships are a hot topic for you once again this year. All the outer planets are affecting this area of your life, and will continue to do so for the next handful of years. Imaginative Neptune travels through your Sector of Partnership, melting your heart and opening you up to a more soulful experience of love. Meanwhile, passionate Pluto has taken up long-term residence in your Sector of Love, transforming your relationship with romance. You're less likely to be satisfied with superficial courtships than you once were. Love affairs need to have a deeply felt impact.
You're awash with incredible feelings of sweetness on February 6th. Just watch that you aren't blinded by false promises of commitment, or you could be sorely disappointed. If you want to make long-term plans for this 2013, try not to set them between February 23rd and March 17th.
You've got the motivation to go after your professional goals the first half of the year. With generous Jupiter in your House of Public Recognition through June 25th, lucky breaks come your way. Keep a really open mind as to what's possible rather than limiting your view of what you are capable of achieving. The last two weeks of May are a very activated period for your career, a time when you can really shine at work. When your planetary ruler, messenger Mercury, enters this sector of your chart on the 15th, your career mojo skyrockets. The 24th then brings a Lunar Eclipse that highlights how your work really nourishes you. And on the 27th there's an especially expansive day where it seems like all attention is turned upon you. That's the day when Jupiter unites with Mercury. This should bring you the acknowledgement and recognitionÃ¢â‚¬"and maybe even the promotion-you deserve.
As for finances, innovative ideas for joint ventures continue this year with revolutionary Uranus still traveling through your House of Shared Resources. As Mercury traverses through your House of Money September 9th through 29th it ushers in a period when you're really focused on your finances. It's a great time to create a budget or refine one you already have. Also, if you owe someone money, or they owe it to you, touch base to check in and talk about the payback plan. This can help to allay tensions that could potentially mount on October 18th when a Lunar Eclipses highlights your financial sectors.
