The finer things in life are calling your name, Virgo. With beautifying Venus shifting into Libra and your luxurious second house until September 23, the urge to splurge will be strong. If you've had your purse strings pulled tight, you've got cosmic clearance to loosen them a tad. Perhaps that means setting up a special savings account for a meaningful indulgence. On the love front, this Venusian spell sounds the call for courtship rituals. Whether you're swimming in the dating pool or rolling in the deep with your long-time sweetie, some good old-fashioned romance can really heat things up.
Have you been in this movie before? Today, you might feel like you've landed in an alternative (and eerily familiar) universe, as clever Mercury goes retrograde (backward) in Virgo, your first house of self, until September 22. Get ready to flash back to your past. Caution: this won't necessarily be an easy-breezy cycle. During this three-week period, you could be subject to epic misunderstandings, where your witty words fall flat and even offend people. Too much self-promotion (or any self-promotion) could backfire, too. Spend this time reviewing your progress toward personal goals. You may cut one or two from your list.
Ready or not, the spotlight is coming your way. A brand new world is about to open up tomorrow, when a Virgo solar (new moon) eclipse sweeps in, putting your dreams front and center. Today is a cosmic dress rehearsal of sorts, as a Virgo balsamic (nearly-new) moon helps you identify habits and ways of being that no longer serve you. Put your pride aside and self-assess. Be willing to release the old and outmoded so you can welcome the new.
Virgo 2.0 has arrived! Today's cosmic news is MAJOR: a groundbreaking solar (new moon) eclipse falls in Virgo, which is like a turbo-charged personal new year. This lays the groundwork for life-altering opportunities in the coming six months, perhaps around a personal project or solo venture. This event could continue seeds planted at the first Virgo solar eclipse mid-September 2015, so look back to that date for clues. Then prepare for some exciting news or an enticing offer that could change the course of your life. Keep your eyes open and watch for signs. Happy birthday season, indeed!
Pace yourself, Virgo. Yesterday's groundbreaking solar (new moon) eclipse in your sign gave your personal goals a huge boost. This eclipse opened up a bold new chapter or brought a surge of can-do energy to your personal goals. Today you may get a reality check as the Sun, Neptune and Saturn clash in a three-way showdown. You may encounter some resistance or skepticism from loved ones. Perhaps a family member pokes holes in your idea or your grand goals clash with your romantic partner's agenda. Don't let it burst your bubble. But at the same time, what's the rush? Take it one confident stride at a time.
This weekend's mood: equal parts practical and posh. The moon is in Libra and your industrious but luxe-loving second house. You could put in a few hours wrapping up errands or leftover work, but feel no shame if you reward yourself with some retail therapy afterward. Is it time to spend a few one those hard-earned bucks on something (or someone) special? Saturday's sweet meetup of the moon and beautifying Venus could prompt a high-end purchase—a gift for yourself or, since Venus rules love, your significant other. Virgos love to spoil! And while you get as much (if not more) pleasure out of treating your nearest and dearest, it's okay to splurge on yourself, too. You're always happiest when surrounded by beauty, so honor your sensual and aesthetic nature today. Later on Sunday, a forgotten expense or a stressful moment could strike. You could have a moment of buyer's remorse, but don't impulsively rush to return your new gear. Sit down and crunch some numbers, perhaps trimming a couple costs to balance it all out. Where there's a will (and a savvy Virgo), there's a way.
