We don't need to tell YOU, principled Virgo, that honesty is the best policy. And under today's penetrating moon-Pluto connection, real talk can transform a relationship for the better. Sure, broaching the conflict might seem unromantic, but ignoring it can be an impediment to intimacy. By addressing matters directly, you'll see whether or not the object of your affections is open to understanding your needs. Keep it blame-free! For example, "I'd love to see you again; when are you free?" is likely to go over better than "Why haven't you called me?"
Stern Saturn takes its yearly trip in reverse, backtracking through your fifth house of fame and romance from late tonight until September 6. Bask in the adoring glow of others, but don’t get hooked on that attention fix. Otherwise, your ego may steer you away from your true desires. With restrained Saturn reversing in your self-expression zone, hold back on sharing every thought or mood swing. Saturn’s retrograde may also reveal the need for more structure in your love life. Relationships don’t magically happen without you putting in some work. Clean up communication and make sure you're compromising instead of issuing edicts. You’ll be proud of yourself when you’ve managed to keep hearts connected and the love alive.
Your love life swerves into highly seductive terrain today as the evolutionary Sun hooks up with revolutionary Uranus in Aries and your eighth house of intimacy and eroticism. Couples can take a deeper dive into some unchartered waters during this transit. As long as you’re both cool with the exploration, there’s no reason NOT to go there. Single Virgos should widen their search parameters and stay open to some very different types. The quiet ones might prove full of sexy surprises!
You're the master of the detail, Virgo, but sometimes that narrow focus limits your thinking. Today, as the Sun kicks off its annual tour of your visionary ninth house, your worldview is as wide as the globe. Make sure your passport doesn't expire in the next four weeks, then start planning a trip. Which far-flung friend might want to host you? Even a weekend spent out of town with new scenery can refresh your perspective between now and May 20. Considering a more permanent move? Widen your search parameters: You could be really big in Bogota!
Who’s getting under your skin now, Virgo? Today’s moon in your collaborative eleventh house forms a slippery square to disruptive Uranus, leaving you on edge. Beware: This hotheaded aspect could find you uttering regrettable words that won't be easily forgotten. If you feel stifled by a group project or a too-close-for-comfort relationship, speak up—don't blow up. Running away or lashing out won't solve a thing. Besides, there's a good chance that you've given people unrealistic expectations, fostering their dependency on you. Spread your wings in ways that won’t burn bridges and will leave doors open for your (inevitable) return.
Don your social director's cap, Virgo. With the moon orbiting your collaborative eleventh house on Saturday, you're the Pied Piper of your posse. Don't be shy about assigning duties. If you need someone to pick up snacks or make the dinner reservation, give them their marching orders. People may enjoy the festivities even more knowing that they contributed to the fun. Sunday's quarter moon in Leo helps you assess: Where can you downsize? What relationships are draining you? Gently release anything that's no longer a fit. But plunge deeper into the things that ARE "so Leo." On Sunday, mystical, penetrating Pluto turns retrograde in your romantic fifth house. This backspin, which lasts until September 30, will churn up the passion AND the drama. You might fall head-over-heels with someone new—or fall BACK in love with your sweetie or an ex. You could also find yourself running hot and cold with an old paramour who never quite disappeared. Whatever happens, it could get intense. If you're willing to follow your passions wherever they lead, you can reach a far deeper level of intimacy than you ever dreamed possible.
