New health and wellness trends are likely to spark your interest, but take some time to do your homework before incorporating them into your daily routine. Saturn visits Aquarius from March July 1 and reenters the sign on December Jupiter follows close behind, meeting up with Saturn on December 21 in a long-anticipated Great Conjunction. Whatever boundaries stand between you and true love, Neptune in Pisces wants to help you dissolve them. One of your biggest obstacles in relationships is the tendency to be overly critical or judgmental. Adopting a more open-hearted attitude can work miracles in relationships of all kinds.
Jupiter in Capricorn sextiles Neptune three times this year February 20, July 27, and October 12 , bridging the gap between the serious, down-to-earth, practical side of love and the dreamy, magical, romantic side. In romantic and platonic relationships alike, communication is the most important thing to work on this year—especially while your ruling planet Mercury is retrograde in Scorpio and Libra October November 3. Issues of fairness and equality may come up between you and a significant other at this time.
Year of All work and no play? It may seem counterintuitive, but taking time out for extracurricular activities makes you more productive, not less.

After all, with Mercury ruling both your sign and your Gemini career house, you love keeping busy. Venus goes retrograde from May June 24, prompting you to look back on your career so far and reevaluate your chosen path. What does success look like—and more importantly, feel like—to you? Still, try not to let sentimentality or nostalgia keep you from making any tough calls you need to make.
The Virgo Birthday Horoscope 12222-2020
Two eclipses in Cancer lunar on January 10, solar on June 20 help you let go of older associations or projects that are no longer working for you, and make way for new ones better aligned with your current interests. That's a crying shame. Do you know who else is quiet and polite? Also Jedi Knights. Also any martial arts badass. Those are some pretty good role models, none of whom anyone would refer to as weak.

We are hoping, Virgo, that you aren't seen as weak in other people's eyes, but we're guessing there have been moments when less enlightened individuals have thought this and maybe have even said it to your face. We both know that this isn't the case, and if you don't know it clearly, I'm going to let you know.
You are a warrior.
You are quiet and placid on the outside, but deep within there's a fierce tiger that can strike at any moment. And is when that tiger needs to strike. Read on, our young Padawan. There's an interesting convergence for you to pay attention to in Mercury is moving in for a little bit with Pisces from February to April 14th. Don't worry, it's not anything scandalous. Mercury isn't even having its mail forwarded to the new address.
It is a big transition in the sky, though. It's sort of the celestial equivalent of a low harvest moon here on Earth. What does this mean for you, Virgo? It's going to be the prime time for that tiger inside of you to strike. Think of January as your crouching month: head down, pupils huge, and tail wagging aggressively back and forth.
February to April is when you pounce, and the rest of the year is for enjoying your prey, reaping the benefits of your hunt. If ever there was a perfect metaphor for the workplace, it's the jungle.
Even in the least cutthroat environments, everyone is angling for something and ready to pounce on a weaker member. We're not saying you need to become a bully. Remember: a tiger hunts for survival and to protect its young, not for sport. You need to sit on your rock and watch the other animals fight for a bit, then see where you need to be. Remember that convergence we mentioned? Look to that time February to April to act in whatever form that takes. Maybe it's time to talk to your boss about something you want to pursue, like a new project or a raise. It might also be time to confront someone that you've been meaning to for a while.
We're going to temper the tiger metaphor a little but just a little here. We're not saying you're going to have claws out, ready to attack. But if there was ever a time you needed just a little extra confidence in order to face someone, this is that time and we want you to remember the tiger inside of you. Concentrate your big, heavy actions during those two months.
You won't be inactive during the rest of the year, but we'll want you to ride the wave of after effects from that time. Maybe you'll be promoted, maybe you'll move departments, maybe you'll just quit your job completely and pursue something you've always wanted to do. Act, and then recover and respond to those actions. We are going to assume that being calm and steady has carried over into all aspects of your life, whether you see it that way or not. Do you know one real-world arena where this is incredibly beneficial?
Your money. If there's any area in your life where you need to be the slow and steady tortoise we're moving away from the tiger metaphor for this one , it's with your finances. Calm, cool, and collected are exactly what you want to be when it comes to money decisions in , Virgo. This is not the year for throwing your life savings onto the hot tip you heard from your nephew. If you don't understand what something is or how it makes money, don't invest in it.
Keep your cool, keep dropping your pennies into your savings and your retirement funds and you'll be doing yourself a favor. Even if a fantastic financial opportunity presents itself especially towards the end of the year , keep a skeptical eye open at it and research heavily. We think you'll find that you want to keep your dollars closer to you. That period of springing from your perch to catch prey is going to keep you very active. A tiger conserves energy so they can release it in a quick burst. We humans don't physically work like that, or at least not with the strength of a tiger.
But we've got the strength of a person and that's pretty damn good. We don't mean sit on the couch all day, Virgo. You're not getting off that easily.

We do mean that it's important to remember that part of the exercise is recovery. If you're already active, you know this, and we encourage you to not drop it.
Give yourself that break. If you're not very active, we're going to give you a freebie that we want you to take seriously: stop beating yourself up. If you find yourself every night saying to yourself "Ugh, I really should get up and run", stop. Take the night off - one night - from the self-abuse. Yes, we all should be more active, but this year is about action and recovery. You're engaging in the non-productive action of "I should". For the last half of , we want you to recover from that. Take care of yourself, of course: eat right, get a bit of activity in, but don't make unreasonable demands of your health, physical or otherwise.
Has being the calm, quiet warrior made it hard for you to find love? We're guessing that sometimes that's the case. People will mistake that for underconfidence or outright disinterest, which is a shame because they're missing out on everything you have to offer. No matter where you are in the romantic department looking for love, married, wanting kids, having kids, etc , you have another celestial event that casts its glow across you all year long.
