Virgo, you have more money coming in the first half of 2023 than you’ve had in a long while. Jupiter blesses and makes profitable your eighth house of mutual resources until May 16. You will not have to worry, O Great Worrier. This month, however, is not really about money, but about self-care.
Let the universe swallow your stress. Or you could get sick, if you’re not already. In fact, it would be best if you just step back, stop revising and analyzing, and let fate take its course. Because it’s a brilliant one.
Might I suggest a meditation course to help you calm the mind that can plague you? You want to get out of your own way here for best results. February has long been thought to be the month of expiation and purification. And there is no one more purist than a Virgo. So I’m happy to see that you will have more pure fun, more pure pleasure, and more pure passion.
Brava, Virgo! You have learned who you are, and what you’re made of. You’ve learned to accept your limitations, and to trust your higher goodness. You’ve soberly considered your place and position in your world, and in the world.
That’s a very evolved place to be, and it didn’t come without some struggles.
What you have also going on now is an expansion of your path – now you have learned what your path is. And, to reaffirm, as you chose the sign of Virgo as your vehicle in this world, this path is that ruled by your sixth work house, already ruled by Virgo.
In your service sixth house you now have:
The energy and intention of the awesome Sun
The current Aquarius Moon
The beauty and charm of Venus
The brilliant communication and thought of Mercury – your ruler
Stick-to-it Saturn of enduring legacy
And what does your sixth house, traditionally already ruled by conscientious Virgo, rule?
Work, work, work
Your daily routines
Daily eating and exercising rituals
How you take care of yourself and others
Your service in the world, and your service to the world
Assistants and those you hire to help you
Respect among professional colleagues
Your daily chores and homework
Cleaning your house / desk / closets / etc.
Your path to serve the highest good.
If Virgos ran the world, the world would be a better place, as Virgos fix and make everything better. But love can’t be fixed, and you need to find a way to enjoy it more now. Tell me how that goes for you, okay Virgo? You need someone beside your object of interest to talk to, and besides, I’d like to hear.
And I’m happy to report that Venus, planet of love, is direct for Valentine’s Day. And will be in your seventh house of marriage and partnership by that time – lovely! So it will be a good one this year. Finally.
A fellow Virgo, writer Jorge Luis Borges (born August 24, 1899), wrote:
Love is only the beginning of a terror we can barely endure.
The first step is not sacrificing yourself, nor unduly fretting over the one you love. Which you have worked hard to conquer.
You must be vocal about your needs, secure your home for you and you only, 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.
Chiron is basically screaming in your eighth house of mutual resources. Chiron is the wound that never heals. What IS the deep, ancient, dark pain in there?
With major planets 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. Your best pals will be helpful. So will be eating right and staying healthy.
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 second house of finances. (Money is coming up as an issue BIG-time.)
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 how to be happy alone. 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.
This February, the nurturing and healing is all in your new, calm, thinking. You will receive deeply RELIEVING information from dreams and your unconscious. And in doing so, you can let go of the past (and past failure) 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 as January ends and February begins is this, dear Virgo: to forgive.
Forgive others. Forgive yourself.
You look very strong and attractive when you do this.
You also can expect old lovers and old partners to turn up. Completely unexpectedly!
Remember: forgive, forgive, forgive.
Something comes in to help. Delays and (mostly other people’s) craziness cease at work after mid-February. 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 forget that.
Happy 2023, Awesome Virgo! I can’t wait to read you!

February is the dreariest month – except for Valentine’s Day, bang in the middle to bring us joy. And not only for sweethearts! For those of us who are alone, and more of us are, and by choice, than at any other time in human history, Valentine’s Day is about expressing your love. For your friends, for your fur babies, for your family, for – whomever, or whatever brings you love: express all of it! I believe we all have love in our hearts, and this is why I read you.
My job as astrologer / healer / palmist / psychic is to encourage and activate self-love, too. Very important: love YOURSELF on Valentine’s Day! Buy yourself flowers, take yourself to that movie / exhibit you’ve been dying to see, indulge in a luxurious bubble bath, treat yourself to a luscious dinner. Eat the ice cream. Why not? Love is love. It is good. It is the best.
The New York Times dubbed me “Love Guru” in a half page article they did on me in 1999. It was published on Valentine’s Day. Here it is if you’d like to read it. https://madalynaslan.com/press/articles/the-new-york-times-article/
I still do this for clients, of course – everyone wants to know who their special person really is – but, as many of you already know, I cover everything else as well! (Viola, my lovely Virgo assistant, is waiting for your email…email@example.com.)
