The solution lies in balancing creative energy with a personal life. You’ve been pushing yourself very hard on a project recently. The new Aquarius Moon of Friday, January 24 brings out the best of you in an assignment – and you are the best! – but make sure you give yourself a break soon thereafter.
The first step is not sacrificing yourself so much. You must be vocal about your needs, secure your home, and come back to old friends and groups that you’ve known for a very long time. You need them as much as they need you.
You can no longer give yourself away until there is nothing left. If you feel you’re not being perceived correctly, get ready to change.
What IS the deep, dark pain in there, in your closest relationships? I’m giving you the immediate now, dear Virgo, because you NEED to start applying healing to any troubled relationships you have. And you will heal.
You do this by remembering the lessons you’ve learned and by taking responsibility for all the ways YOU made it hard to come to the place you are now.
With the Sun, your ruler Mercury, and the new Moon moving in your sixth house, it really is your everyday routines, your animals and those you take care of, and all your domestic duties that help you most now. Eating right and staying healthy will be extremely helpful.
Which you haven’t had so much of recently. This is why this month will be a turning point in your life, Virgo. If you ALLOW it to be. Work on meeting more like-minded people. Make an effort to hang out in groups where who you are, your higher mind and ideals are respected and valued.
Which leads me right into talking about the asteroid Ceres, currently trying to do its nurturing thing in your fifth house of love and creativity.
In this fifth house you also have the greatest number of heavenly bodies than in any other house: Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto, Ceres, and Pallas, joined by Mars after February 16. So that’s a lot of emphasis on love! Ceres is all about nurturing – the nurturing you got as a child, and the nurturing you give yourself now as an adult. Some of you didn’t receive very good training in communicating what you wanted and what you needed. This month we look at how to make it better.
Even when you do well, or have done well, it is hard for you to LET yourself do well. Or to believe it. If you lacked nurturing in a certain area, it’s harder to enjoy it yourself later, when grownup.
It’s only challenging to learn new nurturing habits and behaviors – but it’s not impossible. It’s like anything else – you just need to do it DIFFERENTLY. Try something new!
This February, the nurturing and healing is all in your communications. You will receive deeply RELIEVING information about a sibling, or sibling-type figure. And in doing so, you can let go of the past (and any past failures) and move on. You have been doing your best – as always – and trying hard – as always – but you may find a flaw in that group you belong to, humankind.
What you will need to do this February is this, dear Virgo: to forgive.
Forgive others. Forgive yourself.
You look very strong and attractive when you do this.
Forgiveness. The best words I’ve ever seen on this — and as a Virgo, you know words and you treasure good ones — are from Portia to Shylock in Shakespeare’s 1600 play, The Merchant of Venice.
This is so beautiful, I feel like crying when I read it.
The quality of mercy is not strained.
It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven
Upon the place beneath. It is twice blest:
It blesseth him that gives and him that takes.
Tis mightiest in the mightiest; it becomes
The throned monarch better than his crown.
His scepter shows the force of temporal power,
The attribute to awe and majesty,
Wherein doth sit the dread and fear of kings.
But mercy is above this sceptered sway;
It is enthroned in the hearts of kings;
It is an attribute of God himself;
And earthly power doth then show like God’s
When mercy seasons justice.
Isn’t that amazing?
February will end up being about the people in your life.
Mid-February, you also have Mercury retrograde coming! Your ruling planet Mercury is retrograde from Sunday, February 16 to Monday, March 9. Because it is in your sixth house, it will most affect your work and your everyday routines and you can expect delays.
It is a pesky time for everyone when, no matter how hard you try, things are just having a hard time moving forward, and things don’t feel very specific at all. Mercury rules cell phones, as well as land line phones, computers — and thought and movement, including all forms of travel. He likes to go fast – he flies. So when he starts to retrograde you will notice that travel is delayed, phones aren’t working properly and everyone keeps changing times on you. And people are LATE.
This, of course, drives you, a Virgo, completely and utterly insane.
You also can expect old co-workers to turn up. Completely unexpectedly!
Remember: forgive, forgive, forgive.
So don’t say you weren’t warned. Start making contingency plans now.
Some of you are still spending a lot of time doing your favorite thing – which is to worry – but I have some good news:
Something comes in to help. Delays and (mostly other people’s) craziness will cease at work after your ruler Mercury goes direct again. And at this same time, you start feeling awfully good about YOURSELF. You have worked so hard, SO hard, to get where you are, in yourself, and in the world, and you must not ever, ever forget that.
Is it finally time for your own reading?
YOUR LUCKY DAYS Virgo Sun and Virgo Jupiter, your times of destiny are:
(Eastern) Sunday, February 9 after 6:39pm; all of Monday, February 10; and Tuesday, February 11 until 6:37pm.
I look forward to speaking with you, Virgo!
Take care. With love, Madalyn
