After an unbearably long testing time, then a break (which you desperately need) you come back to us. With new support, clearer mind, and steadier financial protection. July 9, Venus enters Virgo, and your better luck becomes for real, with opportunities you really need.
There’s no one smarter than you when it comes to actual brains, and it’s crucial that you assess each situation from now on with razor-sharp reason. No more illusory dreams and rose-tinted glasses. As I’m concerned you’re still under the spell of… especially when it comes to others. Empathic Neptune in your partnership house just went retrograde June 18 and stays retrograde until November 24. Five months when you’ll be able to see more clearly, but also five months during which you pick up others’ “stuff” more strongly. Be careful to protect yourself, even with people you don’t know. Psychically, you’re more sensitive and absorb what they’re going through. From a crazy mood to an illness.
Don’t lose your head, nor resort to what Virgo can do best – criticize. Don’t doubt yourself, nor fall into despair (this is when you criticize yourself the most). Instead, keep your self-love powerful, boundaries strong, and perfectionism to a minimum.
This goes for all your relationships! Measure how much you put in versus how much you get out. Assess its value. While this may go against certain strongly-held dreams and fantasies, the relationship in question will go better for it.
Talk to your old, best friends – they will help you!
For in your eleventh sector of friends who help you heal you have:
Sharp-thinking Mercury (your ruler)
Pallas, goddess of wisdom, sprung from Jupiter’s brow (2nd only in importance to Jupiter)
A partial solar eclipse new Moon late Thursday, July 12 (10:48pm Eastern, meaning the next day in Australia) – leading to a new direction in your tenth house of career and work!
This partial eclipse opposes Pluto retrograde in your fourth house, so there will be a change in where you live. Begin to weed out what you no longer need in terms of your home. Pare it down to the necessary essentials.
And what all does your eleventh house rule?
Your eleventh house, traditionally ruled by sociable Aquarius, rules:
Your social and professional circles
Including social media, such as your Facebook Friends
Groups and clubs to which you belong
Career colleagues, associates, contacts
Your highest hopes and dreams
Altruistic organizations, clubs, groups
Groups – and how you relate to being in them
Peer group pressure
All the advice you get (good and bad)
How you do or do not make the world a better place
The “It” Idea
In terms of your career, it is all about these social contacts and the “It” idea. How much you are “it”. And how you need to be with the right people in the right place at the right time. Tip: do not play the ingenue. Be the seasoned, wise expert that you are.
Be open and honest and communicative about what you want and need, and you will get magnificent results. Karmically, look to your own attitude. What is it not positive about? (Let me count the ways…) July is your time to do an honest self-inventory.
You may feel daunted, but the wisdom is all inside you. Virgin means pure, purist, as in virgin olive oil – the purest. You alone can see all you want to see. You’re connected to light.
The only real problem, dear Virgo? Feeling you are all alone up there.
And speaking of which, you could get some altitude sickness (or sun sickness) this month. Consume a lot of carbohydrates, forgo alcohol, get extra hours of sleep.
Back to feeling all alone up there. You’re not. Alone. You are surrounded by everyone and nurturing Ceres in your sign – joined by generous Venus after July 9, has everyone coming to you for the best advice.
For now, enjoy the party.
The approaching solar eclipse and new Moon on Thursday, full Moon on July 12 in your eleventh house of love and conception signifies dramatic change in not only in your close relationships, but also in your creativity and the way in which you create. It’s time to expand and to move to the next chapter.
Your relationships are ready to move to the next level, as is your artistry.
And you have to be the most practical midwife in the world, with a clear head and no emotional drama, to ensure its best passage. Take care of your baby and make its journey smooth!
As a good “parent” you will also naturally be concerned with its financial future, and wish to plan ahead for its security. You know how to do this, dear Virgo, trust yourself. Remember in all your negotiations: practical, practical, practical. Stay objective.
Best to let it flow with the community around you, and not worry so much about GOALS. You’re going to do fine. Brilliantly, actually, if you can just relax, and trust, and stop worrying. Pushing will not help, particularly in the area of home and property.
After July’s first week you can expect to see some progress, but not really before. (Again, please don’t shoot the messenger – who is only trying to help!)
Why is this?
Well, you are still clearing out the garbage, albeit rather slowly. And this is a GOOD thing…
So many people have let you down in the past. So many disappointments. One right after the other. You’ve been rejected by people. You’ve rejected others. You’re forgiven for having a great deal of detritus. It can sour you, however, to new situations.
It’s a confusing time for everyone, but only YOU, Virgo, can cut through the B.S. like there is no tomorrow.
Virgo is the sharpest there is; you know what you are doing.
How much you are going to open your heart. How much you will trust. What you may intentionally or unintentionally sabotage.
Do it before your ruling planet, brilliant Mercury, goes retrograde July 26.
You’re going toward a completely new chapter in your life towards the end of July. A huge change which eases much of your frustration. Many of you will move.
But I want to say something to you, Virgo. You struggled through the dark for a long time. Even if it was shadowy grey, it is now time to open your eyes and look for the light. Figuratively and literally.
Let me quote Nelson Mandela quoting Marianne Williamson in his presidential inauguration speech following his release after TWENTY-SEVEN years in jail.
“Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people the permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence can automatically liberate others.”
Get your house in order. Clean it spic and span. Prepare for the Guest of your life: YOU.
And you don’t even have to go to a party if you don’t want to! WHEREVER you are, the light will shine.
Help from air signs are forthcoming this month, particularly from one or two special Librans. Whatever form this help takes – it might cause you pure frustration at the time (Librans are known to procrastinate, air signs can waffle…) – but it is help, and take it as such.
You are not to waste a moment of this month.
Dream with your eyes open. You finally can. There’s nothing terrible to look away from anymore.
Brave Virgo. Thank you for coming so far, and now for coming so far forward.
I can only applaud you.
Is it time for your own private session?
And what my clients say.
I look forward to speaking with YOU, Virgo.
With love, Madalyn
