Hiding out isn’t always a bad thing, Virgo. (Take it from me… I’m a Cancer!) With the sun beaming over your eighth house of sex, transformation, and shared resources, you’re experiencing either one of two things: You’re implementing the fiery Aries vibes into your sex life, or you’re coming face-to-face with repressed shadows, and fears. Whatever the case may be, we all have Aries somewhere in our birth chart, and life is cyclical. Although, with the new moon illuminating this area of your chart on April 5, you will be given a chance to re-evaluate your intimate unions, and shared commitments. FYI: The intentions you set now, could potentially come to fruition during the full moon in Aries in October 2019. I’m not going to lie to you. The dread of Saturn, Pluto, and the South Node hovering over the things that bring you the most joy can be mentally exhausting, but this cluster of malefic energy is pushing you to break through the barriers standing in the way of your inner joy. Now, for some of you, this could have something to do with your one-on-one relationships, and perhaps whether or not your partner is acknowledging you in the bedroom. The rest of you might need to reflect on the things you’ve been putting your energy into as of late, whether it be a friendship, a job, or a fear that lingers over your head for no apparent reason. Bottom line is, the new moon is here to remind you of your inner warrior, and help you gather the courage necessary to fight for your happiness. Speaking of inner joy, lucky Jupiter will retrograde through your cozy fourth house of home, family, and emotional foundation for the next four months. This retrograde is here to help make space in your inner life, whether it’s because you decide to move elsewhere, or perhaps spend more time with your loved ones. In the meantime, reflect on the following: What’s changed in regard to your emotional foundation and sense of security since November? The Greater Benefic is cleansing and clearing some emotional residue, so don’t be afraid to sit with your emotions, Virgo. Moreover, the full moon in Libra, will illuminate your second house of values, finances, and self-esteem on April 19. This is no ordinary full moon, as it is the second on shaking up this area of your chart. For instance, think back to the full moon this past March, in regard to your values, spending habits, and money-making abilities. This lunation could very well be the sequel of your full moon in Libra journey, which means it could come with some important news, too! Let’s face it, who doesn’t want to make more money? Besides, you could do anything you put your mind to, Virgo. On a brighter note, the sun slides into sensual Taurus, and your expansive ninth house of travel, education, and personal philosophy the following day, adding a burst of optimism to your entrepreneurial visions, and general perspective on life. BTW, with Uranus already traveling through this area of your chart, you could be caught off guard with an exciting breakthrough, or an aha moment, once the sun meets up with the God of the skies. Truth is, you never know what you’re going to get with the rebellious Uranus, so expect the unexpected! Remember, three planets will retrograde this month, so I don’t suggest you make any important commitments, despite how enticing it all might seem. One thing’s for sure, Virgo: This is the ending of one cycle, and the beginning of another, so let’s keep the momentum going. Besides, you always make it look effortless!
