This year is all about non-stop action for you, Virgo. With Mars spending the entire first half of 2012 in your sign, you may start to wonder if there will be any break in sight before 2013. The first quarter of the year will be under Mars’s retrograde influence, a transit that could push you into a semi-neurotic workaholic mode. Be sure to give yourself plenty of physical outlets in order to channel all that excess Mars energy. When Mars turns direct in Virgo in May, you’ll possess tremendous energy to make amazing things happen!
With Neptune moving back into your partnership sector in February, you’ll settle for nothing less than your true soul mate; either that or you’ll feel blissfully wedded to your spiritual nature … or perhaps a little of both! In any case, this is the time of your life to realize how important it is to satisfy the longings of your soul. You’ve compromised, settled and rationalized trying to make the wrong relationship right for long enough. Now you’re willing to wait for the real thing.
You’ll be thrilled to know that Saturn, after putting the brakes on your spending over the last few years, is finally about to take leave of your financial sector. Any financial challenges you’ve had to endure since 2009 should come to an end this October. A change of residence or alterations to your current abode are possibilities under the next wave of eclipse patterns. June’s full Moon lunar eclipse in your domestic sector is the beginning of many profound changes to affect both home and career prospects between late 2012 and early 2013. And then, the new Moon solar eclipse in November in your communication sector could bring new potential for learning, speaking, writing or travel opportunities.
More eclipse patterns are waiting on deck to keep your professional life in crazy, fast-forward motion throughout 2012. You can appreciate the beauty of speed, but you’re still getting over your fear of the unknown. When your life changes so radically and so quickly, it’s hard not to wonder where it will all land. Trust that you’re being put on an accelerated course to success.
With Mars spending an exceptionally extended period (eight months) in your constellation, your workaholic tendencies will be off the charts. The upside is the amazing accomplishments possible for you this year - people will start to wonder if you’re hooked into some kind of supernatural limitless energy supply! Venus will also be gracing your career sector for an unusually lengthy stint between April and August. The retrograde phase of Venus is between May and June, so take advantage of April and July as your months to shine (and boost your financial portfolio!).
Finally, Neptune will leave your work sector this February, making it easier to focus on a plan. You’ve enjoyed the blessings of Neptune’s spiritual gifts, while also experiencing the confusion and inability to stick to a consistent daily rhythm.
Venus might not make its way into your chart until October, but you’ll have plenty of other powerful planetary influences to keep your romantic life flourishing. For one thing, you’ll have the supercharged masculine mojo of Mars revving your stars for the first six months of the year. You’ll have no problem going for what you want - and getting it!
Pluto continues to exert a powerfully subterranean influence over your romance sector, as it will for years to come. You’re slowly becoming accustomed to Pluto’s ongoing death-and-rebirth experiences in the realms of love and creative self-expression. You’ve already shed many selves over the past few years, and Pluto has been gutting out your love life in order to create space for greater levels of passion and intimacy. You may have learned - or you may still be learning - the hard way that the more you let go, the more you receive.
With the rather new presence of Neptune - the planet of glamour, illusion and longing - in your partnership sector, you’re still finding your sea legs in that area of your life. Relationships are no longer a problem to be solved, but a mystery to be lived. Discrimination used to be one of your finest points when choosing a partner, but now you’re more prone to the highs and lows of romantic projection. Seeing what you want to see, rather than what’s real, is the true pitfall of Neptune’s rose-colored glasses. Under Neptune’s influence, you have a tremendous amount of compassion for your partner. Just be wary of becoming too self-sacrificing.
