For the Year 20194>
- Overview -
Year of 2019: Home is where the heart is, Virgo. But with Jupiter spending most of 2019 in Sagittarius (your fourth house), this year you’ll be at home wherever you go!
After all, for you, home is more a state of mind than a specific place. And the same goes for family—whether they’re biological relatives or kindred spirits, this year family ties are tighter than ever. Venus’ two conjunctions with Jupiter (January 22 and November 24) draw you toward spending more time with family and rediscovering your cultural and spiritual roots.
Just be mindful of the gap between visions of what family relationships “should” or “could” be, and what they actually are. Jupiter squares Neptune in Pisces three times this year (January 13, June 16, and September 21), making it easy to over-idealize. Things can also get too close for comfort, especially if you and your family members aren’t careful to set healthy boundaries.
You often put family first, Virgo, but by August, a Venus-Mars conjunction in your sign on the twenty-fourth puts your desires front and center. You won’t have to push too hard to get your way, though: with five planets in your sign at the Virgo new moon on August 30, you’ll have some powerful allies in your corner!
This Virgo stellium also forms a Grand Earth Trine with Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus. You’re not asking for much—but asking at all feels like an empowering act of rebellion. It’s time to reject self-imposed limitations, and dream a little bigger!
Uranus’ transit of Taurus (from March 6 through 2026) will be all about expanding your vision. Unexpected life events, or experiences of “culture shock,” can prompt you to question just about everything. And with your ruler Mercury spending most of the fall (October 3-December 9) in the opposite sign of Scorpio, you’ll be in full investigative-reporter mode. Mercury’s retrograde, from October 31-November 20, finds you releasing old assumptions and revising your beliefs in light of new information. Just make sure it comes from sources you trust!
- Romance & Love -
Year of 2019: Hey, Virgo, take a walk on the wild side!
Boldness and spontaneity may not be your best-known traits. But over the last seven years, with Uranus in Aries, relationships have taught you a lot about the unpredictability of love and life. And at the start of 2019, you’re ready to take some risks—especially around February 12, when Mars conjuncts Uranus at the last degree of Aries.
Gone are the days of playing the “responsible adult” in relationships, while your partner has all the fun. With Mercury spending two months in your opposite sign of Pisces this year (February 10-April 16, retrograde March 5-28), it’s time to reverse the roles—or at least play around with them a little! You may see your significant other in a whole new light.
Whatever you do though, Virgo, resist the urge to turn them into a fixer-upper project. The “potential” you’re seeing might actually be there, but realizing it is up to them—not you. And with Jupiter squaring Neptune in Pisces three times this year (January 13, June 16, and September 21), it’s easy to lose sight of that.
Saturn in Capricorn helps you keep your idealism in check. But he can also bring out the “all work and no play” tendencies that limit your potential for fun and romance. Instead, let Saturn work for you: Build more free time into your busy schedule, to make space for spontaneity and sexiness. It can be scary to shed your inhibitions… but with Pluto in Capricorn as well, it’s also empowering!
After all, Virgo, if anyone can be trusted to make good decisions, it’s you. So why deny yourself a good time? True, relationships take work—but the fun parts are equally important. Don’t let worries about looking foolish or irresponsible undermine your well-deserved happiness.
By the end of the year, Jupiter will join the party in Capricorn (December 2) and trine Uranus in Taurus (December 15). This, combined with a solar eclipse on December 25, brings amazing opportunities to up your romance game. Enjoy a romantic getaway with your love—or if you’re single, get serious about meeting someone new!
- Career & Finance -
Year of 2019: Being a “team player” isn’t just a cliché that bosses use—for you, Virgo, it’s all in a day’s work. Whether it’s in your job description, or above your pay grade, you’re always ready to lend your coworkers a hand.
But this year, it’s time to cash in some favors! With Mercury sextile Jupiter, Mars, and Uranus around the Aquarius new moon (February 4), the time is right to ask for what you want—whether it’s more control, greater flexibility, or fairer treatment for yourself and your colleagues. With all the goodwill you’ve generated around the office, from coworkers and employers alike, how could anyone refuse?
Just be careful not to squander the good vibes—when Venus in Aquarius squares Mars in Taurus on March 21, you may find yourself involved in an office squabble. Pick your battles wisely, Virgo—at the end of the day, it’s the relationships that make going to work worthwhile.
Still, to keep those relationships working, you’ve got to have boundaries. And from late May through late June, when planets moving through Gemini activate the Jupiter-Neptune square, boundaries can get very blurry with regard to time (“on the clock”/ “off the clock”), space (working/living), and relationships (business/personal).
How will you know where to draw the line, Virgo? By focusing on the things that really matter. And for you, that means something more than money or status: living a well-balanced life. From late September through early November, when Libra planets square Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn and sextile Jupiter in Sagittarius, your definition of work/life balance will lean more toward the “life” side. Use your vacation days, enjoy quality time with family or even some “me” time… you’ve earned it!
