Relationship reflection time begins in 3, 2, 1...! Get ready, Virgo: Your most important pairings are up for a soul-centric audit starting this Monday, June 18. Why? Because healer-feeler Neptune is dipping into a five-month retrograde through Pisces and your seventh house of partnership. When the blue-hazed planet takes an annual sabbatical, you can get mighty introspective about things. Even if a particular connection has taken on a fairy-tale sheen, you need to wipe the pixie-dust out of your eyes and look at things objectively. As the sign of selfless service, you've been known to give 'til it hurts. But this pain (while unavoidable in SOME moments) should not be a regularly-activated feature of your bonding. The ache can even masquerade as an exciting "project!" for you. Should you find yourself rearranging bae's exploding closet or helping them get their credit score sorted—and you're still technically in the honeymoon phase—stand down, Virgo! This over-functioning martyr mode kills the sexy fast, and it's not a precedent you want to set up. If you've handed your power over to a partner, do what you can to get things on more equal footing between now and November 24. True, it might be easier to let your S.O. or business associate reconcile the finances or take all the important calls, but it's NOT savvier. Stay engaged and challenge yourself to learn things that you find intimidating. Your self-sufficiency will only make you sexier and more in-demand.
Another call for autonomy comes on Wednesday when the harmonizing quarter moon lands in Virgo, activating your independent first house. Give your bigger #lifegoals a review. How close are you to reaching a few of those must-do and must-see items? Unexpected events may have detoured you away from an important dream. Don't waste time ruminating, just merge back into your chosen lane. Since there are only 24 hours in a day—of which, you'll maximize all 1,440 minutes—you may need to drop out of a "meh" activity, like attending an obligatory September wedding or (gulp) letting one of your besties know that you are too busy to co-chair her fundraiser and can only support in a more minor way. Deferring your dreams to be there for other people is just a recipe for resentment.
But don't worry, your team spirit isn't going AWOL. In fact, on Thursday, when the Sun blazes into Cancer and your collaborative eleventh house, you might find some eager hands to help advance one of YOUR pet projects. If you don’t actually join forces, you can still be part of a collective. For example, freelancing Virgos might join a private Facebook group for coaching and mentoring. If you work alone but don't want to be lonely, set up shop at a co-working space and hum industriously alongside other busy bees. The hive-minding will be epic between now and July 22. Gather with visionary friends and do focus-group hangs to drum ideas for one another's enterprising plans. Genius ideas for an app or other invention could arise under this tech-savvy solar spell. Call the developers and see if these can be built for a reasonable cost. And don't forget the power of crowdfunding—your social network could very well put some dollars behind your dreams. Pro tip: Don't make EVERY hangout so damn purposeful. When the Sun swings through this part of your chart, go have fun for fun's sake! Paris...or maybe Ibiza...awaits!
