The worst is over, Virgo. Can you see the light? With the sun beaming through your eighth house of sex, transformation, and power thrills, for the majority of April, you were likely in the midst of some emotional introspection. However, that was then, and this is now. Taurus season is here, and the sun is energizing your expansive ninth house of education, travel, and personal philosophy. Channeling your inner Indiana Jones? Not that you’re a fan of taking risks, but something tells me you’re feeling saucy. The new moon on May 4 will illuminate this area of your chart, and with its ruler Venus looking into her crystal ball via your eighth house of ancestors, intimacy, and transformation – you could be greeted with an adventure of sorts. Find comfort in the unknown, Virgo. Whether you’re considering the idea of relocating, going back to school, or perhaps taking a leap of faith within your intimate partnerships, the key is to surrender. A harmonious trine to Saturn, Pluto, and the South Node, via your expressive fifth house of romance and creativity, will likely provide you with the necessary confidence to move forward. Two days later, your ruling planet Mercury joins the sun in Taurus, and your mind will start focusing on the bigger picture. Philosophical Virgo will come out to play, before luscious Venus makes her debut in this same area of your chart. Planning a much-needed vacation? This is a great time to plan your next vacation, if you aren’t traveling already. Aspiring entrepreneur? This is a great time to invest in some snazzy self-promotion. That same day, assertive Mars will stampede through Cancer and your eleventh house of teams, tribes, friendship groups, and extended network. Time to get your shmooze on! This energy will inspire active camaraderie, and ignite your social circles. Connecting with like-minded individuals will become a priority for you during this time. The full moon in Scorpio on May 18 will activate your third house of communication and local community. Hint: Think back to the new moon in Scorpio in November 2018. What’s evolved in regard to your immediate environment, thought process, and general exchanges since? For those of you who have been brainstorming ideas, or collaborating with your local community, this lunation could bring some news. Ready to show the world who’s boss? Both the sun and Mercury slide into Gemini, and your ambitious tenth house of career and sense of authority, on May 21. Admit it: You love taking charge. Who are we kidding? You’ll feel right at home during Gemini season, Virgo.
