Daily Horoscope: Virgo

Your critical eye has 20/20 vision right now, but it isn't the only tool you can use to see what's really going on. Remember, your creativity and intuition can help you sense things on another level. You can sense the subconscious urges and wishes of other people quickly, perhaps even before they do. Like a keystone in an arch, you are holding things together in your group of friends. Make suggestions for the changes you think need to happen to retain a harmonious structure.

Weekly Horoscope: Virgo

As Mercury backtracks through the heavens, you might feel inclined to wonder what life’s all about. Questions relating to your purpose and the meaning of life could emerge this week. Other signs that you’re searching for higher answers include a sense of malaise or not being sure whether you’re on the right path – or even on a path at all. Perhaps what’s needed is a trip to blow away the cobwebs and broaden your horizons. You could go in search of answers by consulting with someone who helps you see yourself in a new light. Remember that it’s difficult to make progress with plans when Mercury is retrograde, but by taking time out and asking some searching questions, you might well emerge in a few weeks with a much clearer sense of where you’re heading.

Monthly Horoscope: Virgo

This month you will be stepping onto your career high and will push for promotions and pay rise. Older and useful people are favoring you and thus you should make the most of it. Love will be very unstable and there could be occasions testing relationships. Finances look good.

Yearly Horoscope: Virgo

As soon as the Sun conjoins Pluto in Capricorn on January 7, the year 2017 will blast off into an adventure of work and career possibilities for Virgos. Your planet Mercury will be in Capricorn, too. Thoughts and ideas to move you ahead will be abundant and achievable all year.

January also starts with a mystic and mystifying conjunction of Mars and Neptune in Pisces. You'll be looking into the face of magic all year long, and you'll be able to tell what's real from what's illusion. That's an advantage that very few people will have.

The Moon and Venus conjunct in Aquarius smooths out many social and relationship issues. You will be able to see and think more clearly about others than perhaps they can themselves. The most important celestial signal might be the conjunction of Mars and the Lunar North Node in Leo on the day that the Sun enters Virgo.

You normally act with great consideration and compassion. This year, what you do may more often have karmic implications with soul connections to improve your life. Your more playful, dramatic actions could have deeper, more subtle and long-reaching consequences.

The third of this year's four Mercury retrogrades starts in Virgo on August 12 and ends in Leo on September 5. You can have some of your best and most successful moments of the year now. They may not look great in the moment, but they are.
