Virgo Horsocope for May 2016 and Today

Diana's Monthly Virgo Forecast for May 2016

SENSING THE POTENTIAL

Until the 21st the Sun is in a more outgoing, expansive area tending to raise the spirits and you see fresh possibilities outside of the routine box. Time to make plans or launch into projects. Some of you may have itchy feet, and with the vibrations increasing opportunities to escape the daily grind, this is a good time to get out and about more and try new things.

A FRESH PERSPECTIVE

Mercury is expanding your mind and you should be entertaining options outside of the box. Discussions and/or paperwork could be related to travel, higher learning or an unfamiliar environment. Thinking bigger and becoming more aware of fresh potential, or a distant horizon, a plan may be forming in your mind. This could be a good time to refresh your mental palette and think in bright new colours. Maybe there is a breath of fresh air from further afield or guidance from those with specialist knowledge or just someone with a refreshing slant on things. Mercury enjoys this communicative sector which also emphasizes higher learning, publications and the legal side of things. Another way this transit might work is you take the opportunity to beat the drum about something, get the word out, be the guide or the guided, the informer or the informed.

Mercury is retrograde until the 22nd which means hold-ups or having to think things through more carefully.

BREATH OF FRESH AIR

Until the 24th Venus encourages warmer more supportive relationships with those from far away, or from a different cultural background. Travel with a partner is possible or someone expands your thinking with their experience or background. You are more likely to connect with others who have a knowledge or expertise which helps you add pieces of the puzzle. This could be financially advantageous. You yourself may be valued or admired for your knowledge, know-how or guidance and this may be a good time for putting the word out on to a wider stage about something and it could prove to be lucrative. Publications or educational establishments could be highlighted and you and someone may be on a bit of a learning curve together. A teacher or someone with wisdom could be helpful, or, through their contribution and support you ultimately get a better understanding or material reward for your joint efforts.

FRIENDS IN HIGH PLACES

From the 24th Venus is helping to create more favourable circumstances with authority figures, like bosses, parents who will be positively emphasized as they tend to see you or your work in a good light. There could be an ally – possibly a female – or just someone you feel close to no matter whether they are socially above you or not, who is invaluable to your success or who facilitates an ambition. You yourself could be the one who takes a firm but friendly stand and enables another to achieve their goals.

ROOTS

Mars is retrograde all month which tends to mute the action and may cause some re-thinking. Those born either in the first week or with up to 8 degrees rising will be feeling the effects most. This is not a great time to initiate a competition or a fight you dearly need to win. If possible, wait until the retrograde is over.

This is not a great time to initiate a competition or a fight you dearly need to win. If possible, wait until the retrograde is over.

Until the 28th Mars is at the root of your chart. This means you could be busier than usual in and around HQ, or because of a property or another location. Physical effort may be needed right in your own back yard or there is more physical demand on you because of family, neighbourhood or community. Decisiveness, assertiveness or more stamina may be needed because of any of these possibilities. Mars in this area could mean a lot more coming and going within a locality even if it is not your usual stamping ground or there may be more hustle and bustle around you. As always with Mars, there could be moments of tension which surface now and again and affect your mood and you may find a way to use pent up energies in a more positive manner. Skeletons may start rattling in the closet and you have to ride the waves of emotional reactions or elements from the past have more impact or relevance to the present. On the other hand you may be putting your energies into something which connects you with tradition, the family or tribal background, Mother Nature or the planet as a whole. For some, parents or parenting are emphasized – especially the male side.  

DYNAMIC COMMUNICATIONS

From the 28th Mars is in a transit of your Solar communications sector accelerating mental processes and firing up the way you express yourself. A great time for getting to know people, places or new ideas.

Comings and goings may increase or you find yourself more in the stream of information exchange and this would be a good time to float a new concept or body of work. However, there may be tensions and you can feel overloaded with too much on your mind. Sometimes, it could feel that certain others are too impatient or over-assertive but, your own reactions may be too defensive or pinickity. It’s better to be measured and decisive in what you say, keeping lines of communication open rather than wasting energy wondering about someone’s deeper motives.

In general, there could be more correspondence or other types of paperwork than usual and flying hither and thither for business or personal reasons. Overall, you should start to feel more confident about making decisions or defining certain objectives more clearly. You can be proactive and successful with media, promotions, negotiations or simply speaking up for yourself in a more assertive way.

THE LONG VIEW

From the 21st the Solar energy theme means you will be taking your targets or overall direction more seriously or be more aware of how you present yourself and the impression you are making on others, or how something is representing you. Traditions or social conventions may have more of your attention.

You may have to be more aware of the rules imposed by officials, parents, bureaucracy and anyone to whom you have responsibilities. The overall idea is to project an appropriate image and be consistent and responsible as you go forwards. 

SKELETONS IN THE CLOSET

This is an important Saturn transit for Virgos. This is the time to build upon or change aspects of what was begun in your life about 7 or 14 years ago. This time around, stress-testing of Saturn may challenge you to take responsibility for the dust swept under the rug from the past. Therapeutic work triggers inner change and, externally, a more body-centred approach through healthy practices should help you build better emotional/physical foundations.

You may have to put more into family relationships or work harder at getting along with others in a community or neighbourhood – any of which may feel lacking in some way but there will be material there to build upon. Anything you have just been tolerating regarding your domestic setup, place on the map or with family or extended family will now need your attention especially as loose ends from the past may impact the present. This is the time to get things more how you would like them to be.

Virgos born 3rd-7th September or with from 12-16 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.     

NEW BEGINNINGS

Jupiter is now in your sign until next September. This means it’s time for a real growth spurt in your life and things could be taking off in (several) new directions and it will be up to you to be guided by what feels right to you. You will discover much through those from different backgrounds or belief systems, about their ways of seeing things, so, quite a learning curve there but in other areas too. More travel, foreign cultures or higher education could be part of the picture. Just try to avoid trusting to luck or overlooking important details and expanding too far too fast. This is your opportunity to think bigger and reach for the golden ring on the merry-go-round of life.   

Virgos born 4th-7th September or with 12-15 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.    

During this long transit of Neptune through your opposite sign you may end up being the ‘prop’ that others lean upon or you may sacrifice your own style or your preferred plan to serve another, and as long as you have separated the needy from the greedy, all will be well as you integrate more levels of yourself. But remember to respect and honour your own wishes too. Stronger boundaries may be needed at times, but you can be the facilitator too and there will be much bubbling up within you as you slowly develop new concepts or come to fresh realizations. Careful you don’t get a distorted view of someone’s worth – in either direction. Virgos born 2nd-4th Sept or with 11-12 degrees rising will feel the energy the most this month.

Continuing today, and ending on Wednesday, your career sector is battling with your home-life sector, as the Sun is competing with Mars. Your area of home-life, instincts, and family is being provided with an athletic, restless drive by Mars in Sagittarius. While this fluctuating, tricky link continues, it may be a struggle to nurture your career, or involve your family in your profession.

As well: continuing today, and concluding on the 28th, the planet Mercury is cooperating with Neptune. The planet Mercury present in the sign of Taurus may mean your area of knowledge, research, and unfamiliar enviroments is filled with a consideration which is stable, and reliable. While this convenient, natural connection continues, it may be good to collaborate with a stranger, or to be adventurous with your partner.
