The year ahead is basically happy, with a few challenges thrown in just to keep things interesting!

Your 5th house of fun, children and creativity is easily the strongest in the Horoscope this year – and it will get even stronger after December 3. So the year ahead is creative and fun-filled. With you even fun has to have some purpose, some practical rationale, and this is the case this year. Fun just for the sake of fun is not your style. Learning to discipline and communicate properly with children will be an important focus.

Jupiter will spend almost all year in your 4th house of home and family. Often this indicates a move and an expansion of the family circle. Jupiter in the 4th house (and then, from early December, in your 5th house) often shows a pregnancy for those of childbearing age.

Neptune has been in your 7th house of love for many years, and will be there for many more. You need someone spiritual as a mate or love.

Uranus has been in your 8th house of regeneration for the past seven years, but now this year he is going to leave finally. The era of sexual experimentation is over with. By now you know what works for you and it’s time to experiment in other areas – in your religious, philosophical and theological beliefs. This will be a long-term trend. There will be much change here in the coming years. These changes will impact well on your health.

This year, unusually, we will have five eclipses (normally there are only four). Of the five, four will impact on your spiritual life. So major changes and upheavals are going on; these also indicate dramatic changes in the spiritual or charitable organizations you’re involved with.

Your most important areas of interest this year are home and family (until December 3); children, fun and creativity; love and romance; sex, personal transformation and occult studies (until March 7); and religion, philosophy, theology and foreign travel (from March 7 onwards).

Your paths of greatest fulfilment this year are home and family (until December 3); children, fun and creativity (from December 3 onwards); and friends, groups and group activities.

Health

(Please note that this is an astrological perspective on health and not a medical one. In days of yore there was no difference, both of these perspectives were identical. But now there could be quite a difference. For a medical perspective, please consult your doctor or health practitioner.)

Overall health and energy is much better than it was in 2016 and 2017. And, come December 3, it will be even better than last year. Most of the long-term planets are in harmonious aspect with you, with only two – Jupiter and Neptune – making stressful aspects. (And, from December 3 even Jupiter will start to make positive aspects.)

Of course, there will be periods in the year where health and energy are less easy than usual and perhaps even stressful. However, these are not trends for the year, only the temporary effect of the short-term planets. When they pass, health and energy will return to their norms.

Health is normally always important for a Virgo, but this year less so than usual. Your 6th house of health is basically empty – only short-term planets will move through there and their effect is temporary. With the way your chart is this year, an empty 6th house is a good thing. You can more or less take good health for granted, with no need to focus overly on it.

Good though your health is you can make it even better. Give more attention to the following – the vulnerable areas of your Horoscope (the reflexology 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 very good idea to massage the ankles especially, and below them.

  • The small intestine. This is always important for Virgo as your sign rules this organ. However, you always pay attention to diet, and you tend to be on the case.
  • The ankles and calves are another important area for Virgo. Uranus, your health planet, rules these. Regular ankle and calf massage should be part of your health regime. The ankles tend to need more support when exercising.
  • The head, face and scalp. These have gained in importance over the past seven years, as your health planet has been in Aries. After March 7 however, they will become rather less of an issue. Until then, continue to massage the scalp and face on a regular basis. Craniosacral therapy is also good for the head.
  • The musculature. As with the head and face, the muscles wane in importance after March 7. In the meantime vigorous exercise is good. After March 7, gentler exercises will suffice.
  • The adrenals. Like the muscles, head and face, these have been important while Uranus has been in Aries and will be less so after March 7. As always avoid anger and fear, the twin emotions that stress the adrenals. Ginseng is said to be good for them.
  • The neck and throat. These gain in importance after March 7 as your health planet moves into Taurus, the sign that rules these areas. Regular neck massage should become part of your health regime for the next seven years. Craniosacral therapy is good for the neck too.

Since these are the most vulnerable areas this year, problems, if they happened (God forbid), would most likely begin here. Thus keeping them healthy and fit is sound preventive medicine. Usually problems can be averted completely. But even in cases where they can’t (due to karma) they can be mitigated to a large extent. They will not be as severe as they could be.

Uranus’s move into Taurus, your 9th house, shows that your personal philosophy of life – your theology (or lack of it) – is playing a big role in your overall health. Health problems (along with all other problems) are only masks for theological problems. Underneath all the medical and psychological verbiage lies a theological deficiency, some misconception about the nature of the Divine. In the coming years you will see this. The best cure for error (the main pathology of the philosophical mind) is light. It will be good to invoke it regularly.

Your philosophy of health and disease, your philosophy of what the body is, also is important. The current prevailing philosophy is not adequate and will need to be amended.

The health planet in the 9th house shows the power of prayer (a bit different from meditation) as a valid healing force. You get to learn this over the next seven years.

Home and Family

With Jupiter in your 4th house of home and family this year, this is a major focus. Basically it shows happiness and success here. As we mentioned earlier, the family circle is enlarged. Generally this happens through birth or marriage, but not always. Sometimes you meet people who are ‘like’ family to you (and they were probably family members in past incarnations). They give you the unconditional support that would usually come from the family.

If you are of childbearing age (and this applies to members of your family too) fertility is much stronger than usual. The family as a whole prospers this year and next. There is good family support these days.

Jupiter in the 4th house often signals a move – a relocation. But this need not be taken too literally. Often the home is renovated or enlarged and it is ‘as if’ you have moved. Sometimes expensive items are bought for the home, making the present home happier and better. Sometimes people buy additional homes or they have access to an additional home. There is good fortune in the purchase or sale of a home.

Jupiter in the 4th house gives other messages as well. It shows that the year ahead is one of great psychological progress. Important psychological breakthroughs will happen. Those of you undergoing therapy will make great strides. And even if you’re not undergoing any official kind of therapy, your psychological understanding will increase.

Dealing with children and children figures in your life seems like the main challenge this year. It seems like a burden, but you will handle it. Children need limits and some discipline – not cruelty, but an understanding of what is and is not permissible. Sometimes tough love is needed, but it should never be overdone. Tough love at an early age – when behaviour is more correctable – will often prevent serious problems later on in life. Educating the children also seems like a challenge.

A parent or parent figure is prospering this year and very involved in your domestic life – it seems like in a good way. He or she is doing more travelling this year but is not likely to move. (There’s nothing against it however.)

Siblings and sibling figures are also prospering this year. They’re having a banner financial year. They are feeling a need for a change of residence, but it is more likely to happen next year.

Children and children figures have been emotionally volatile these past seven years but they appear calmer, especially after March 7.

Grandchildren (if you have them), or those who play that role in your life, are restless this year. They might not physically move, but they will be staying in different places for long periods of time. They are more rebellious these days too. They want to explore their personal freedom. Many are testing the limits of their bodies.

If you’re planning any home renovations, all this year will be good for such work. If you’re beautifying the home – redecorating in a cosmetic kind of way – January 7 to February 8 and November 1 to December 22 are good times.

Finance and Career

Money doesn’t seem a big issue this year. The money house is empty and only short-term planets will move through there temporarily. (The Moon will move there, briefly, every month.) But these are not long-term trends. It’s not an especially strong financial year and the tendency will be to the status quo. You have more freedom in shaping the financial life, but lack the interest and motivation (usually because you’re more or less content with things as they are).

Money is important, but it’s not everything. And it is certainly not the purpose of life, as some have made it. Love, children, creativity, family and personal happiness are much more important than money this year. Keep in mind that the 2nd house is only one of the twelve houses – a small part of the total picture.

As we mentioned earlier, there is good family support for you this year. There is good fortune in buying or selling a home. Residential real estate, restaurants, the food business and hotels seem like interesting investments this year. You have a good feeling for them. A family business would be attractive too.

With Venus as your financial planet you have a natural affinity for the beauty industry – fashion, cosmetics, jewellery, art, antiques, interior design – things and products that beautify people and life. And, of course, the health field (your natural interest) is always good.

Venus is a fast-moving planet. In any given year she will move through all the signs and houses of your chart and make aspects (connections) to every one of your planets. (This year she is moving about a third faster than usual too.) Thus there are many short-term trends in finance that depend on where she is and the aspects she receives (or makes). These are best dealt with in the monthly reports.

Venus’s fast motion this year is a positive financial signal. It shows confidence. It shows someone who makes fast progress. It shows stronger earning power. But, as we’ve said, there is a lack of interest.

This is not an especially strong career year for you either. Your 4th house of home and family is much stronger than your 10th career house (which is basically empty). And though you tend to be ambitious by nature, this year you are less so than usual.

Mercury is your career planet and he moves even faster than Venus. So, there are many short-term career trends that depend on where Mercury is and the aspects he receives and makes, which again are best discussed in the monthly reports.

Love and Social Life

The love and social trends haven’t changed much over previous years. Neptune has been in your 7th house for some time now and will be there for many more years to come. The love life is becoming more spiritualized – more idealistic – and this is an ongoing process. The transit of a planet like Neptune is not really an ‘event’ but a process, a long series of events with a certain goal in mind.

So, as in previous years (and it is good to repeat things for the sake of newer readers), you’re attracting spiritual-type people into your social sphere. In fact, these connections are a big part of your spiritual growth.

If you’ve been going to the usual bars and clubs looking for love, you’re wasting your time. You might find sex or a night’s entertainment, but not love. For love you need to go to spiritual seminars and lectures, to charity events, or events put on by altruistic organizations. You need to meet people who are on your spiritual wavelength.

For those of you already in a relationship (and most of you are), the challenge is to balance your home and family interests with your love interests. The current love or spouse doesn’t seem in synch with your family. More work will be needed here. Also there are all kinds of revelations about the current love that don’t sit well with the family (especially one of the parent figures).

The same is more or less true for singles. The family doesn’t seem to approve of the people you’re dating. Also family ties and responsibilities are distracting you from your social life. This will pass by the end of the year, but in the meantime it’s a challenge.

Singles are searching for ‘ideal love’ and don’t seem to brook compromise. The problem is that while some humans have a greater capacity for love than others, few can live up to your idealized desires. So, even the best of relationships carries some degree of disappointment.

There is a serious romantic relationship for singles this year. There is someone there in your house of love. A spiritual, artistic, inspired kind of person – perhaps a musician, a poet, a dancer, a spiritual channel or minister type. These are the kinds of people who allure you.

Love information and guidance will come to you in dreams (and you need to pay attention) or through psychics, astrologers, tarot readers, mediums or spiritual channels. If there is confusion here it would be beneficial to consult with people such as these.

With good spiritual compatibility almost every problem in a relationship can be worked out. Nothing is impossible to spirit. But without it, almost nothing can work out.

Last year was a banner love and social year. Many of you married or got involved in serious relationships – relationships that were like a marriage. For most of this year the love life is OK. Not spectacular but OK. But by the end of the year – after December 3 – it starts to sparkle. Next year will be even better.

The spouse, partner or current love is having a very strong career year and there is much success happening. This could be a distraction for him or her, in terms of your relationship. He or she seems focused on his or her own interests and this could also be a problem.

Self-improvement

We mentioned earlier that there is great – dramatic – change happening in your spiritual life, in your spiritual practice, teachings and teachers. Four of the five eclipses this year impact on the spiritual life. Generally people have misguided notions of what the spiritual life is all about and there are many superstitions involved. These notions will get tested and many will have to be revised. Often spiritual practice changes because of interior revelation – the whole object of spiritual practice. Thus change happens. Some of you will be moving from one spiritual group to the next until some new bombshell happens that causes change. Gurus and guru figures in your life will also be having personal kinds of dramas – and often this produces change in teachers and teachings. There are many scenarios of what can happen. But the end result will be a new spiritual path, a new way or approach.

We’ve discussed the spiritual implications of Neptune in your 7th house in past reports. Since this trend is still very much in effect, we should repeat this for the sake of newer readers. On the surface this transit shows a desire for ‘ideal’ love, which we have discussed above. But there is a much deeper agenda happening here. The cosmos is guiding you, little by little, to the realization of spiritual love – the real ideal. No human being can ever completely fulfil this ideal – not in our present stage of evolution. But once contact is made with the ‘Inner Lover’ – the Divine – all one’s love needs are fulfilled. All means all. Whatever the need is, the Divine will fulfil it. Whether you are in a relationship or not, you will feel basically the same. You will always feel loved. In a relationship you will experience certain pleasures. Out of a relationship you will experience other pleasures. But it won’t matter much. You won’t have this pressing need to be in a relationship. You will never feel lonely. Love is only a thought away. A turn of your attention. This won’t happen overnight but as a gradual process.

With Neptune in your 7th house it is important to surrender the love life to the Divine – and do it sincerely – and let that handle things. If this is done properly miracles start to happen. A good affirmation is: ‘I cast the burden of my love life on the God within and I go free.’ Repeat it over and over until you start to feel it.

Uranus in your 9th house of religion, philosophy and theology after March 7 shows that your religious and philosophical beliefs will get challenged. Many will be exploded (Uranus likes drama and explosions); many will need to be revised. The challenges are likely to come from the scientific world. By the time Uranus is finished with you in seven years’ time, you will have a whole new philosophy of life – and a much better one. This change in philosophy will impact on every other area of life in a positive way. So many of our hindrances stem from philosophical or theological errors. Truth, indeed, sets one free.
