VIRGO

Remember how you used to have a fun? What used to entertain you? And how does that relate to now? What do you love to do? What lifts you up and makes your soul sparkle? This is the month to recommit to doing more of whatever you love, as Mercury retrograde brings up the past for you. Is there something you used to love to do but you’ve got out of the habit? If there is weirdness regarding a romance or a child, be patient until you have all the facts.

A BIT OF INFORMATION FOR ALL THE SIGNS

Regular readers will know that we are going into 2017 with communications planet Mercury retrograde. When Mercury goes backwards, mayhem often ensures!

So if you have had a rather topsy-turvy holiday season so far, that could well be the reason why.

Mercury retrograde has an upside though; it’s the time to rethink, redo and revisit. In other words, if you find yourself taking a walk down memory lane as 2017 dawns, that’s Mercury.

Missed meetings and miscommunications often happen under this cycle, too, though. The way to handle Mercury retrograde upsets is to keep your sense of humour, even if it’s a bit against the odds! Mercury ends his retrograde cycle on January 8.

Note that the start of the year is also obviously the ideal time to set your intentions for the year ahead. What do you want to achieve in the coming 12 months?

Whether you have plans for adventure, or to get in shape, or anything else, it’s not too late to make some last minute New Year’s resolutions. In fact, the New Moon on January 28 makes that the perfect day to recommit to your plans for 2017, if you fall off the wagon early!

And after January 8, once Mercury changes direction and start to go forwards again, this is where the communications planet will be for you…

For you, Mercury has been going backwards in your FOURTH HOUSE of home, family and domestics. For some this has been about going back to somewhere you used to call home. For others, if life at home has been chaotic beyond belief, now you know why! Misunderstandings with your live-in love, spouse or flatmates should ease up. Even your parents will start to understand you better. This weekend, though, as Mercury actually changes directions, you can expect (or at least allow for the possibility) one last blast of mayhem. And after that? Your home life and family is still going to be taking up a lot of your headspace but there’s going to be a lot less confusion and upset.

 

WHERE THE FOCUS IS FOR YOU THIS MONTH…

As the Sun goes around the skies over the course of a year, it acts as a sort of spotlight on our charts. So every year around the same time, you get certain issues in focus. The way to work with the solar energies is to have a think about how confident you feel in the part of your chart that’s letting the Sun shine in! Here is where the Sun is focused for you this month:

As the Sun moves into your 5th solar house, it’s as though the Universe is issuing you with an edict which will be valid for one month – enjoy yourself! The 5th house is where we have fun, where we keep our inner child. It’s also the part of our charts related to our creative sides – indulge that part of you now. Children can also be expected to be more in your focus now (your own or someone else’s) – at the very least, learn from them if you’ve forgotten how to enjoy yourself. Some of you will be looking to get pregnant, finding out that you are pregnant, or even giving birth. This is the ‘creative’ part of your chart and there is nothing more ‘creative’ than creating a new life! Romantically, it’s all about flirting and remembering how to mix fun with romance.

 

AND IN LOVE NEWS…

This month sees the planet of love and abundance, Venus, move into the very romantic sign of Pisces. This is good news for all the lovers out there. The vibe will be dreamier, people will be more like putty in your hands, love falls in love with lovers. Venus, of course, is the planet of love and abundance – so wherever she is in your chart is where you have more access to romance and riches. Here is what Venus in Pisces means for you.

So how do you feel about having some love in your life? Or if you are lucky enough to know that you have love in your life, how about a bit of EXTRA love in your life? The planet of love, Venus, is about to move into your Love Zone. This happens once a year and in astrology, is technically called a double whammy! Why? Love planet in your Love Zone. It sounds good, don’t you think? It’s a time for you to spend time with people you love, to think about what you want from love and to work on your most important one-to-one relationships. Singles who would like to meet someone have excellent Stars. Couples have a chance to fall back in love with each other. If you’re in a relationship which is falling short of the mark, it’s the time when you might remember what your priorities are in love and decide not to lower your standards any longer! Do reach out to anyone you care about that you have been cut off from of late. It’s a good time for relating to everyone, including people who for a while have felt more like a foe than a friend. Love is all around!

 

WHERE’S THE MOON?

The start of the New Year feels exciting and brimming with potential. And then here comes this very emotional Full Moon which is all about letting go. So how does that work? It might help to remember that in fact the so-called start of the New Year is also just a human construct/measurement we have dreamed up and live out lives in accordance with. Use the Full Moon this month the same way you would any Full Moon, as a chance to let go of the past and to forgive whoever you need to. Repeating this line alone, silently or out loud, could really help: “I forgive positively everyone in all directions of time”. Try it. Breathe in. Say it. And then e-x-h-a-l-e.

 

Making a 2017 Goodbye + Gratitude list

A wonderful practise to do sometime before the January 12 Full Moon would be to make a Goodbye + Gratitude list. To do this, start by making a list of everything you’re saying goodbye to from 2016 (you can do this before or after New Year, it doesn’t affect anything). Write down any heart break, upsets, disappointments, recriminations or regrets you have left over for 2016. Write it all down. Express it (get it?) Let it out and let it go … and then burn the list. And then replace all that you have released with a Gratitude list. All you have to do here is write down the names of at least three people, places or situations that you are truly grateful for. Bringing them to mind will fill you with gratitude, which is one of the ideal energetic states to be in. The more you can feel gratitude for the good in your life, the better your life will be. It’s just the way the Universe works. Try it and you will see.

 

A thought for the Full Moon…

The Goddess of the January Full Moon is Diana – the huntress! What are you determined to do or achieve in 2017? Ask Diana to help you to release fears and doubts on the night of the Full Moon in her sign.

 

The chakra of the Full Moon is Ajna, the Third Eye chakra.

The chant is “Ommm…” Trying chanting this around Full Moon time and see which insights come to you!

 

What the Full Moon means for you…

Of course, it’s as tempting for you as it is for everyone else to focus on yourself and your own pleasures. Perhaps you’re one of the Creative Types out there. Why shouldn’t you express yourself? Of course you should! Life is for living and having fun. However, this month’s Full Moon in your 11th House is reminding you that you need to find a balance between indulging yourself in a bit of what you fancy and remembering that the people in your life also need some attention. They need some attention from you. Whatever you do now for someone else, you get extra karmic Brownie points for. This also makes the coming month good for networking.

This month the Full Moon takes place at 23 Cancer –

Here are times around the world

SYDNEY: January 12, 10.33pm

Moonscope Message

Aries – use January to rewrite your job description – even if you work for yourself, it’s worth doing now, as the New Moon fires up your Career Zone and Mercury reverses.

Taurus – if you believe in vision boards, make one for 2017. Your visions will be broader than usual this month and you can rethink old ideas about what will make you happy.

Gemini – it’s the silly season but you really do have an amazing chance to renegotiate your finances now – after all your hard work, perhaps you’re due some kind of bonus?

Cancer – the Full Moon in your sign this month means it’s time for you to let go of something – could be upsets from 2017, could be extra weight, bad habits… your call!

Leo – stop! Put that cake down now! But seriously, the New Moon in your 6th house with Mercury reversing make December/January THE time for you to sort out dietary issues.

Virgo – being a caring Virgo, you’re great to have around. You love to help! However this month you need to find a balance between you and others’ needs. Don’t neglect yourself!

Libra – looks like you could be moving home or at least leaving home for a while. If you’re working too hard, you need to use this month to find a work/life balance. It’s essential!

Scorpio – if you know you need to think a bit more before you speak and it’s one of your big resolutions in 2017, commit to it now – you have supportive celestial conditions.

Sagittarius – so what do you want for yourself financially in the New Year? This is the time for you to set your intentions – it could be easier to renegotiate things than you expect.

Capricorn – the New Moon in your sign and Mercury retrograding in Capricorn makes December/January pivotal – turn and face the direction you want to go in. Use it or lose it.

Aquarius – take some time to retreat from the silly season social madness now – the New and Full Moon are both reminding you that we all need time out every now and then.

Pisces – make 10 wishes on December 29 when you wake up – it’s your lucky New Moon of 2016. Consider wishing for the courage to follow your dreams in 2017.

AND FINALLY… YOU ALSO NEED TO KNOW THAT…

 

There are two major bits of astro-news for you this month. The first is that your planet Mercury ends his retrograde cycle. If you have felt as though you’ve been treading water, you should start to feel you’re moving forwards again. Mercury was reversing in 5th House of Fun so hopefully you have rediscovered some old ways you used to enjoy yourself. If not, you have until January 8. What did you used to do as a kid that could make you happy now? Also, note that this a potentially the most romantic month of the year for you.

Power date: January 29 – even the meekest Virgos will remember their magnificence!
