Virgo the Virgin in 2006
Outward Spiral of Communication
You can make unusual or extraordinary changes in 2006,
Virgo. And, you can dive deep. Chiron, Jupiter and Saturn
will guide you. Chiron the wounded healer is in Aquarius,
guiding you on the path with work, health and daily routine.
There may be new skills, new practices or conditions and
new associates that enter the arena of daily life and somehow
revolutionize your work or routines. Jupiter is in Scorpio,
guiding you on an outward spiral of activity with learning,
new communication skills or business ideas. You may deal
with wealthy or powerful people. You may discuss money in
a new way or embark on a course of learning that brings
deep knowledge. For some there may be a sexual liaison with
an associate. This may be a secret activity or have a powerful
influence. You can learn more about the strategies of business
and the behaviour of the world at large. You may travel
for business reasons. Observe! It will win you points for
later on. You may express your convictions or beliefs more
strongly. Saturn is in Leo, guiding you on the inner path
as he travels in your solar twelfth house.
Love and Money
Venus the goddess is retrograde in Aquarius, conjoined
with Chiron, as the year starts. Working relationships will
feature. If you're single, you may meet someone through
work. Or you may change your work because of a new relationship.
If you're with a partner, you may work together. A change
with work may affect your relationship. For both, people
with whom you've been connected in the past may come back
to your life. You may work with someone with whom you've
been romantically involved. Or you may become romantically
involved with someone you've worked with. There may be a
healing or resolution with the past as people return. You
may return to an old working situation. There may be arrivals
or departures with work that affect personal life. Such
changes could come unexpectedly. Relations with women or
unusual people may feature. Some of you may need to withdraw
from your work situation for a time. Others may decide to
leave for something new.
While Uranus continues his merry dance in Pisces, bringing
change and excitement in the partnership stakes, the Lunar
Nodes get in on the act, moving from Aries and Libra to
Pisces and Virgo on Jun 22nd. This shifts the focus strongly
to partners, close associates and cooperative ventures.
You may come into new associations or liaisons. You may
work with or for others. As the Lunar Nodes clash with Pluto
on entry, then build towards an exact square in October,
this will mean that new connections, romantic or business
or otherwise, will spell the end for the old. To forge a
new link is to break an old one. Such breaks may bring change
with where you live and what you do for a living.
As far as money is concerned, the important thing is to
build towards the future through learning and developing
new connections that will provide money or resources. You
may forge important new contacts that will invest in what
you wish to do or provide for a greater purpose of which
you are a part.
Home and Family
Mercury the messenger begins in Sagittarius, joining Pluto
in your solar fourth house. There will be beginnings or
endings at home or in personal life. There may be negotiation
or concerns with business, investment or money. Changed
thinking or beliefs will bring change to your home life.
There may be intense discussion over serious matters.
On Nov 24th, Jupiter, lord of fortune, enters Sagittarius,
altering your emotional and domestic life. There may be
home improvement for some while others may relocate, even
overseas. Your housing situation may improve or change dramatically.
Emotional or family ties may be linked to overseas connections
or travel. People of status, foreign visitors, academics
or professionals may become part of domestic life. Law,
religion, philosophy or air travel and people connected
with these areas may feature. Humour or other cultural mores
may add colour to your life. You may wish to learn more
or see more of the world. There may be high ideas or an
emotional atmosphere. 'Larger than life' goings on may fill
the home. You may look ahead or set a course for the future.
Good fortune will come from attention to personal life.
At times, the atmosphere at home will be charged. The end
of the year may bring astonishing or remarkable events connected
with home or family.
Work and Health
With Chiron in Aquarius, new skills or practices will feature
and health or innovative health practices will change daily
routines. You will find yourselves doing things differently,
putting the hours in the day to other uses. Some will become
interested in healing work of some kind, either to explore
new avenues for yourselves or to give to others from a well
of knowledge that you've discovered. You may be dealing
with different or unusual people in daily life, some of
whom may be involved in healthcare. Others may experience
poor or changed health, pushing you to learn new skills
or adopt new routines. Over the coming years, this process
will bring you to a new road altogether. If there are health
challenges, seek a new, unusual or alternative route with
healing or treatment. You will emerge from difficulty with
an improved quality of life and greater knowledge of the
spirit that moves you. March and July are key months for
change. You may deal with outstanding matters, especially
the influence of the past and its ghosts. These are times
to forgive and let go as you integrate new knowledge into
your working day.
Saturn, measurer of effort, is in Leo and your solar twelfth
house, deepening your inner life and widening your inner
horizons. In time, this will lead to a new journey in the
outer world. The twelfth house rules creative or spiritual
endeavours, our sensitivity and deeper understanding. It
also holds our deep fears, our self-undoing mechanisms and
identifies hidden forces that work against us. To move through
the twelfth house is to understand there is a greater plan
than the plan we have. With Saturn in Leo, there will be
change or withdrawal to a degree from current work, activity
or contacts. This will allow time for inner growth. Some
may step back a little while others may withdraw completely.
Some of you may contemplate a new direction, one where you
do something of interest to yourselves or of value to the
community. In doing so, you may have to overcome fears or
natural reluctance. Such fears will be rooted in the past
and in any blocks you have about creative or spiritual expression.
Over time, you will come to know yourself in a new way.
It will be worth the effort to make the change. You may
study or withdraw from familiar landmarks or reference points
to make the transition.
Some may be affected by health, either yourselves or those
around you. The needed response will change the pattern
of life. Others will immerse themselves in new pursuits.
Some will take work in a larger organization and merge into
the background for a time. Others may step back from contact
and move into solitary pursuits. Career changes may occur.
You may enhance what you do with new skills or beliefs,
gathered over time, or you may step away altogether from
what you've been doing. New contacts or connections may
come, some gifted artistically, others involved in spiritual
or care work. They will have unusual interests and pursuits.
The journey of Saturn in your solar twelfth house does not
lend itself to a gung-ho 'win at all costs' approach. Make
a measured voyage into your inner reaches and fit yourself
for a more fulfilling life. For those who have studied or
prepared for such change already, Saturn in Leo could see
you deepen your involvement with the creative or spiritual
work that calls you. Saturn moves direct on April 5th and
turns retrograde again on Dec 6th.
Mercury moves into retrograde (reverse) motion three times
a year for about three weeks each time. This phase heralds
a time of confusion and misunderstandings that can affect
arrangements, travel, transport, appliances, machinery and
communications. The breakdowns that occur are a function
of neglect, inattention, simple misunderstandings or component
failure. They will often bring to the fore the very contingency
we should have planned for and didn't. When the retrograde
phase occurs, watch out for such possibilities as well as
putting off major decision-making or the signing of crucial
documents and agreements. We tend to miss things while Mercury
is in reverse motion and then have to come back and do them
again. A process of review in the retrograde phase can efficiently
show where problems might lie and help us with damage control
or the mending of things. Double check arrangements at these
times! What you think you've said and what others have understood
will often prove to be two different things.
Mercury turns retrograde in Pisces on Mar 3rd, squaring
Pluto, underworld lord, as he does so. There may be a review
or unexpected developments with partners or close associates.
There may be communication problems or breaks of contact
that you will have to work through. You may need to listen
to your partner or there may be misunderstanding between
you. Time and patient effort will help to sort things out.
Unexpected events may affect a partner or a partner may
behave in an unusual manner. This may somehow affect home
or domestic circumstances. This cycle ends Mar 26th.
Mercury turns retrograde in Leo on Jul 5th, in range of
a T-square with Jupiter, Saturn and Chiron. You may feel
like withdrawing or stepping back for a time. Events that
come out of the blue may be the reason or it may simply
be that you need a rest or break. There may be confusion
or misunderstandings with communication. You may not be
able to stay abreast of things easily. You may have been
neglecting creative or spiritual practices and will need
to catch up. Minor health matters may trouble due to tiredness
or overwork. Take time for yourself. Mercury returns to
Cancer on Jul 10th. Issues may affect friendship or your
hopes and dreams. Seek support. This cycle ends on Jul 30th.
Mercury turns retrograde in Scorpio on Oct 28th, in a
conjunction with Jupiter. Travel and communications may
be under pressure or subject to unexpected changes. Watch
for problems with vehicles or communications equipment.

get underway. You may come back to an old idea and get it
up and running again. There may be testing encounters in
traffic or in the street. There may be a chance meeting
with someone of interest or influence. This cycle ends on
Your Full Moon comes on Mar 14th, bringing a Lunar Eclipse.
As Mercury is retrograde in Pisces at this time, the focus
will be on partners and close associates. Something may
occur with a partner to change your circumstances. Someone
you have been close to may come back to your life. There
may be a revelation about someone close or about how they
feel. There may be excitement with others or difficulty
dealing with them. This will pass if you give it time. Hear
people out. Understand what's going on. Wait for the dust
There are two New Moons for you this year. The first one
comes on Aug 23rd. It falls at zero degrees of your sign,
marking the emerging of a hidden quality or skill, or perhaps
an old one emerging in a new way. Someone or something from
your past may return to the arena of your life in a new
or different manner. Take your time from here. Balance inner
readiness against outer need. You will see a new side of
yourself take shape.
Your second New Moon comes on Sep 22nd, bringing a Solar
Eclipse. You may make personal change, marking the end of
a life cycle. There may be a change in work or health that
alters how you operate or how you're seen by others. You
may alter anything from the way you look to the way you
do things. An activity or interest may pass from your life
as you begin to look in other directions. You may stop something
to leave an empty space that you will later fill.
Eclipses of both the Sun and the Moon often indicate the
end of a cycle or a significant change in the direction
or pattern of the affairs governed by the house in which
the eclipse falls. Eclipses of the Sun may affect work,
direction and relations with people in authority. Eclipses
of the Moon may affect matters of home, family and emotions
as well as relations with women and children. Both may affect
