VirgoBy Stephanie Shea
Virgo (8/23 - 9/23)
This month, the effects of Venus and Mercury retrograde will clear, facilitating productivity and progress towards new endeavors. Mercury will station direct on May 3rd, but wait until after May 17th to initiate a brand new plan, as we’ll still feel the influence of the “shadow” phase of this phenomenon until then. Because Mercury is the ruling planet of your Sun Sign, you may have felt some mental “static” over the past month. With Mercury going direct, you’ll benefit from a renewed sense of intellectual clarity.
On May 15th, Mercury will move into Taurus and your 9th house of travel, adventure, and higher education. The timing will be favorable to plan a trip or enroll in a course of study. Ideas that come to you now will likely require a long-term commitment. Look for ways to make progress towards your bigger goals through small, daily steps.
On May 10th, the North Node will end a journey through Virgo that began November 12th, 2015. The Lunar Nodes represent the points where the orbit of the moon crosses the ecliptic (the Sun’s path in the sky from our perspective on Earth). The North Node is the zodiacal point where the Moon crosses the ecliptic on its way North and the sign it’s in sets overarching themes for our planet. While the North Node was in your Sun sign, the prevailing energies supported constructive participation, following through with commitments, establishing clear boundaries, and physical wellbeing. Because the Lunar Nodes move backwards through the zodiac, the North Node will ingress into Leo on May 10th.
After this date, the emphasis will shift from productivity to creative expression. The North Node in Leo, Uranus in Aries, and Saturn in Sagittarius will form a Grand Trine in the fire signs this month that will last from mid-May until October. The second half of May and all of June and July will be particularly powerful times to claim your personal power within your close relationships.
The Fire Grand Trine will be activating your 8th house of intimacy, 12th house of the subconscious and spirituality, and 4th house of home and family. This Summer will be the ideal time to practice positive ways to express your individuality with family members and intimate partners. You’re being awakened to your true self and activated to operate with greater authenticity—even if that means risking disapproval from loved ones.
On May 10th, the Scorpio Full Moon will highlight your 3rd house of communication and learning. The energy will support candid conversation that gets to the heart of matters. Intimate partnerships may be a focus. If you’ve been in denial about your feelings, this Full Moon can help you to acknowledge and express your emotional needs.
On May 20th, the Sun will ingress into Gemini and your 10th house of career and public image. The next month will provide you with opportunities to network for business and/or gain public recognition. On May 25th, the New Moon in Gemini will provide support for intentions related to public speaking, presentations, taking authority, sales, marketing, and releasing superficiality.
