Looks like a healthy and happy year ahead, Virgo. Enjoy! Your 5th house of fun, creativity and children is easily the most powerful in your chart, so this is your year for fun, for enjoying the rapture aspect of life. Being a Virgo, even fun involves discipline and work – but that’s just your nature. Work is fun.
Real Virgo heaven will happen from March 23 and July 1, and from December 18 onwards, as your 6th house of work becomes very strong. You will be enjoying your work – your job – even more than usual.
The health looks good this year. There is only one long-term planet in stressful alignment with you. All the others are either in harmonious aspect or leaving you alone. More on this later.
Uranus has been in your 9th house since March of last year, and he will be there for the next seven or so years. This shows that your religious and philosophical beliefs – your personal religion – is getting tested, probably by scientific findings. By the time Uranus is finished with you, you will have a new personal religion and new perspective on life. This transit also affects college-level students and brings much instability here. There will probably be serial changes of schools and subjects. There is also much instability in your place of worship.
Four lunar eclipses this year – twice the usual number – show that there are major dramas in the lives of friends. This could test friendships. It would also show the testing of your high-tech equipment and gadgets multiple times.
Neptune has been in your 7th house of love for many years and we’ve discussed this in previous years’ reports. The love life is becoming more idealistic, more spiritual and refined. You are attracting spiritual and artistic friends and love interests. More on this later.
Venus will spend an unusually long time (over four months) in your 10th house of career. This is a good career signal and indicates pay rises (official or unofficial) this year. More details later.
Though your 12th house of spirituality is empty this year, with only short-term planets moving through there, spirituality seems fulfilling and successful in 2020. The abstract North Node of the Moon will be moving into the 12th house on May 6.
Mars will spend more than six months (an unusually long time) in your 8th house of transformation this year; he will be there from June 28 to the end of the year. This would show a more sexually active kind of period and a focus on personal transformation. There could be psychological encounters with death as well. Perhaps surgery is recommended to you or to people close to you.
Your major areas of interest this year are children, fun and creativity; health and work (from March 23 to July 1 and from December 18 onwards); sex, personal transformation and occult studies (from June 28); and religion, philosophy, higher education and foreign travel.
Your paths of greatest fulfilment will be children, fun and creativity (until December 20); health and work (from December 20 onwards); friends, groups and group activities (until May 6); and spirituality (after May 6).
(Please note that this is an astrological perspective on health and not a medical one. In days of yore there was no difference, both these perspectives were identical. But now there could be quite a difference. For a medical perspective, please consult your doctor or health practitioner.)
Health, as we have said, is good this year. If forced to make a judgement I’d say that the early part of the year is better than later on, but the whole year will be good. With energy levels high pre-existing conditions seem in abeyance. With high energy, things that were once considered impossible become eminently doable.
Health is always important for Virgo, for this is what Virgo is all about. But early in the year, until March 23, it will be less important than usual. The focus increases from March 23 to July 1 and from December 18 onwards, when your 6th house becomes powerful.
Good though your health is you can make it even better. Give more attention to the following – the vulnerable areas of your horoscope this year (the reflex points are shown in the chart below):
Important foot reflexology points for the year ahead
Try to massage all of the foot on a regular basis – the top of the foot as well as the bottom – but pay extra attention to the points highlighted on the chart. When you massage, be aware of ‘sore spots’ as these need special attention. It’s also a good idea to massage the ankles and below them.
- The small intestine – always important for Virgo.
- The ankles and calves. These too are always important for Virgo, as Uranus, the ruler of these areas, is your health planet. Regular ankle and calf massage should be part of your normal health regime, and be sure to give the ankles good support when exercising.
- The neck and throat. These became important for you last year (and will remain so for years to come). Regular neck massage will be very beneficial; tension tends to collect there and needs to be released. Craniaosacral therapy is also excellent for the neck.
- The spine, knees, teeth, skin and overall skeletal alignment become important from March 23 to July 1 and from December 18 onwards. Good spinal and skeletal health is vital, and regular back and knee massage will be good – as will regular visits to the chiropractor or osteopath. The vertebrae need to be kept in alignment through good posture. Therapies such as the Alexander Technique, Feldenkrais or Rolfing and exercises such as Yoga and Pilates are all good for the spine and skeletal alignment. Give the knees support when exercising. Don’t neglect dental hygiene (Virgo is not likely to do this, but a reminder is always useful).
- The liver and thighs become important from December 20, when Jupiter, the ruler of these areas, enters your 6th house. (They will be important for most of 2021 as well.) Thighs should be massaged. This will not only strengthen the thighs but the liver and the lower back as well. Diet will also become more important, as well as the need for good emotional health.
Home and Family
Your 4th house of home and family is not strong this year. Instead it is practically empty, and only short-term planets will move through there. It was much stronger last year, when many of you moved or renovated the home. This year you seem more or less content with things as they are and have little need to make dramatic changes.
Jupiter, your family planet, spends most of the year in your 5th house and this gives various messages. You’re enjoying the family more. You are more focused on children or children figures in your life. Women of childbearing age seem more fertile than usual, but a pregnancy seems complicated. It is likely that you are making the home more of a fun place – a place of entertainment. You could be installing home cinema systems, buying more toys (for both adults and children) and perhaps installing sports/gym equipment. No need to leave the home to have fun and entertainment.
Jupiter will move into your 6th house of health and work on December 20, signalling that you will strive to make the home and the family healthier. You could spend on removing harmful substances from the building or the grounds. You could be buying health equipment for the home and perhaps exercise equipment. The home is as much like a doctor’s surgery as a home. This is natural for a Virgo. You will also be working more from home – setting up home offices or perhaps even a home-based business. These trends will continue for most of 2021 as well.
Siblings and sibling figures in your life could move later on in the year, but it’s not a smooth endeavour. There are many delays involved. Their marriages or current relationships are being tested these days; this began in 2019 and will continue for many more years. They are experiencing much social instability.
A parent or parent figure is working very hard but will have a good financial year. A move is not likely, though there is nothing against it. The other parent or parent figure is making major financial changes this year, but the home life seems stable.
Children or children figures in your life are taking on more responsibility these days and they will prosper next year. They seem to binge and then diet. They alternate between the two. They could renovate the home this year, but a move is not likely.
Grandchildren (if you have them), or those who play that role in your life, seem very unsettled. They have a need for personal freedom these days. They are travelling a lot, perhaps living in different places for extended periods, but a formal move is not likely.
If you’re planning major renovations to the home, January 3 to February 16 would be a good period for this. If you’re planning to beautify the home, to redecorate or to buy art objects for the home, November 21 to the end of the year would be a good time.
Finance and Career
The financial area hasn’t been a point of focus (a house of power) for many years now. This has both good and bad points. On the good side, it shows contentment – satisfaction – with things as they are and there’s no need to give finances special attention. Things sort of happen on their own in their pre-ordained way. It tends to the status quo. The negative side of this could be a lack of attention to a vital area of life. If financial problems arise this is the probable root cause.
Still, I expect the year ahead to be prosperous. First of all, you will have happy job opportunities this year – at least two. (And next year the job prospects look even better.) Secondly, your financial planet, Venus, will spend an unusual amount of time (four times longer than normal) in your 10th house of career. This is a prominent position, the top of your Horoscope, and tends to be more powerful than other areas. Venus will be there from April 3 to August 7 and her presence indicates a focus on finance, which is 90 per cent of the battle. It shows that it is high on your agenda. It shows increased earning power. Pay rises (official or unofficial) are likely. Your good professional reputation brings extra earnings to you. The authority figures in your life – parents, parent figures, bosses and elders – are supportive of your financial goals.
Because your financial planet is so fast moving – Venus will move through 11 of your 12 houses this year – money or financial opportunity can come to you in various ways and through various people. This is just your nature. These short-term trends are best discussed in the monthly reports.
Venus as your financial planet signals the importance of social contacts and good social skills in the financial life. These are perhaps just as important as your professional skills. This year the social skills – your ability to gain cooperation from others – are even more important as the Western, social sector of your chart is overwhelmingly dominant. Keep the focus on others and your own good will come to you naturally and with little effort.
Career, too, is not that big an issue this year. Some years are like that. The cosmos aims at a rounded development and different years will emphasize different activities. Your 10th house for the most part will be empty, with only short-term planets moving through there. However, as we mentioned, Venus will spend four months in your career house between April and August. Aside from the financial benefits outlined above, it shows career-related travel – foreign travel. It indicates educational opportunities that relate to the career, which you should take. It shows success for college students and for those applying to college. Legal issues go back and forth but seem ultimately successful.
There is a lunar eclipse on November 30 that occurs in your 10th house. This will bring changes and course corrections in the career. There can be shifts in the management of your company or industry. Perhaps the government enacts changes to the rules and regulations that affect your industry. The rules of the game will change.
Your career planet Mercury is, next to the Moon, the fastest of all the planets. During the course of a year he will move through your entire chart. Thus career opportunities can come in a variety of ways and through a variety of people. This is just the way things work for you. You have great flexibility in career matters. These short-term trends are best dealt with in the monthly reports.
Love and Social Life
Love has been important for many years now, Virgo. Your 7th house has been strong and will remain so for many more years. This year the love and social life seem even stronger than they have been. The Western, social sector of your chart – the sector that focuses on other people – is overwhelmingly dominant this year. So you are more focused on others. Your social grace is stronger than usual. You are probably more popular than usual too.
Aside from this, the love trends are pretty much as they have been for many years and we have written about them before. Not trying to be repetitive here, we’re just describing what is.
You are always idealistic in love, always searching for the perfect love. You like perfection in everything but especially in love. And these days even more so. Your standards for love are very high. And, in many cases, no mere mortal could ever live up to them. This produces a subtle sense of disappointment or disillusionment even in the best of relationships. They can be good, but not of the ultimate standard.
For a Virgo it is always helpful to understand that perfection is a process. It is rarely handed to us on a silver platter. Perfection is something we create – or allow to manifest. So, as long as we are constantly improving – as long as the relationship is better today than last week or last month – we are on the road to perfection, though not yet there.
Neptune, as our regular readers know, is the most spiritual of planets, and he is the ruler of your 7th house. A very powerful position. The spiritual force is very strong these days, especially in love and the social life. Thus, if you are looking for love in nightclubs and bars you’re probably wasting your time. You might find sex there, but not love. For love you should attend spiritual or charitable-type gatherings: meditation seminars or lectures, prayer meetings, the yoga studio, charity events or events sponsored by or involving altruistic kinds of causes.
In love you need a spiritual-type person – ministers, mystics, spiritual channels, psychics and the like. But you would also be attracted to artistic types – poets, musicians, dancers, film-makers or people involved in the film industry.
Perhaps the main danger in love – and this too has been the case for many years – is the tendency to over-idealize your partner. You tend to put him or her on such a pedestal that no human can occupy. And when your partner proves to be human there is disappointment.
The love life will sparkle from February 3 to March 3 (though there will be twists and turns as your ruler Mercury will go retrograde during this period); March 16 to April 11; May 29 to August 4 (there will be twists and turns this period too, with another Mercury retrograde); September 27 to October 28 (again Mercury’s retrograde complicates things); and November 11 to December 1.
With your 5th house very strong all year there will be plenty of opportunities for love affairs – fun, unserious kinds of relationships. These are not likely to lead to marriage.
There is much turmoil in your friendships this year. Four lunar eclipses affect this area and two eclipses occur in your 11th house of friends. So friendships are getting tested. Friends are having many dramas this year.
Virgos are not known for their spirituality. We think of them as intellectuals, doctors, healers, programmers, engineers and productive types of people. Yet, there is deep spirituality here and all these other attributes stem from this spirituality. Keep in mind that the ruler of the 12th house, the Sun, is in Virgo. They just express this spirituality in the form of service to others and through health. One of the hidden talents of Virgo, rarely mentioned in astrology texts, is their power over the body. They have an innate capacity to mould and shape their bodies by spiritual means. The knowledge is innate. But it tends to manifest over time.
With the Sun as their spiritual planet, Virgo is comfortable with the solar-oriented religions – Christianity, Judaism and Krishna Yoga.
For many years now spirituality is manifesting in the love and social life. The love life is becoming ever-more refined and spiritual. The sensuous, common forms of romance are losing their lustre. Virgo wants something more. These days Virgo wants a relationship that produces spiritual growth – that furthers their spiritual path. Where once you might have looked at the physical appearance, the sexual magnetism or the financial worthiness of the partner, now you are looking at their spiritual development. Here is the allurement.
There is something even deeper going on, which we have also written about in past years’ reports. You are being led, step by step, to spiritual love. Many people confuse this with romantic love – the love of a specific person or object. But spiritual love is much wider than that. The ancients called it agape – unconditional love, with or without an object. The cosmic force of love flowing through the body, mind and emotions. With spiritual love the person doesn’t seek love from outside. The person is merely a channel for the love force to flow through. The person channels love into the world, rather than taking it from the world. Not everyone will return it, but you can be sure that love will come back to you. Whether you are in a relationship or not, it’s basically the same. You always feel loved. In a relationship there are certain pleasures and out of a relationship there are other pleasures. Either way you feel loved. You are happy with either situation. This is the real Ideal Love that you seek. Humans can only love with limitations; the Divine will love without limitations.
