While you are hard at work, it does look like certain issues at home may be increasingly requiring your attention. This could be a troublesome sibling, or a tricky building project.

Working with the Moon throughout the year can change your life Grab your chance now to sign up for the New and Full Moon Yin/Yang Kit which will give you all you need to work with all the New and Full Moons for the year ahead.

Week beginning Monday, 22 January 2018

Life at home is going to speed up now as Mars moves into your Home and Family Zone. There could be extra arguments too, as Mars is very quarrelsome at times. However if you have a DIY project or similar that you want to get done on the home front, expect to get it down faster than expected. In your downtime, it's a good week for romance, other creative projects and anything to do with kids (your own or someone else's).

Month of January

Happy new year, Virgo! 2018 gets off to a thoughtful start for you, with a Full Moon in your friendship zone. As you head into this new year, you may feel that one or more of your friendships is fading a little. As your life moves on this month, you may fall out of touch with some childhood friends, or perhaps move towards a more significant relationship which leaves less time for socialising.

Although this is sad in some ways, you'll find plenty of ways to have fun this January, and with lots of planets active in the most flirtatious zone of your chart, love looks likely to be important!

Early in the month, both Venus and the Sun join forces with powerful Pluto to propel you into a fresh relationship, or a deeper take on an existing one. This may well coincide with a fresh start to your working life or studies too, especially around the time of the New Moon mid month. Mercury and Venus move into the everyday, "get on with it" area of your chart, hinting that you'll be able to use your talents well in a creative or caring role. There are hints that someone you meet at work or at school may become more than just a friend or a colleague - which should be intriguing!

Towards the end of January, Mars moves into your family zone, so it's an excellent time to stand up for a younger sibling, or to act as the driving force behind a family get-together. January draws to a close with a lunar eclipse in the most spiritual sector of your chart, so don't be surprised if you find yourself thinking much more about the meaning of life, religion, faith and your role in the world. Figure out who you truly are!

Oh to be a discerning Virgo! Everyone goes on about how Virgos are critical, don't they? Have you heard that one? You know, you can't walk into a room without noting that the place needs vacuuming, or that the windows need cleaning, or that whoever you're with hasn't shined their shoes. Or whatever. Pah to that!

Firstly, as you undoubtedly know, there are plenty of Virgos out there in the Real World who couldn't keep their home tidy if their life depended on it. Secondly, it's not that you're just born critical, it's that you can't help noticing what has and hasn't been done up to scratch. And because your sign is about service. and about being of service to others, you often believe you're doing the right thing by pointing out flaws to others. And heck, it's not a great astro-job, but someone has to do it. Traditionally your sign represented the women who sorted the grain from the chaff - ie: who had to be good at seeing what was worth keeping and what was no use at all. This is where your ability to be - ahem - let's call it super-discerning comes from. And yes it is a mixed blessing!

But Virgo is about much more than fault-finding. For one thing, your ruler is Mercury and you have a fine mind which you're usually quite good at expressing.

You may not be the most flamboyant person in town, but you have your feet on the ground, and you help others get theirs on terra firma too. Being an Earth sign, you don't usually have time for fripperies, however, that quick mind of yours means you're smart enough to see the funny side of most situations.

One thing is true though - you love your routines and woe betide the person who swoops into your life thinking that they can alter them! Having a routine makes you feel safe and secure. Sometimes, though, breaking out of those routines can bring you the breathing space you need.

You're also usually the sporty type and if you're not engaged in team sports or regular as clockwork runs and swims, you at least pay a lot of attention to your diet. In fact, you're very handy to have around. A few weeks with a Virgo and even the slobbiest person starts to feel healthier in mind, body and spirit!

You're an excellent listener with great timing and you make a great teacher. Just avoid doing so much for others that you forget to look after yourself. You're also reliable, gorgeously modest and ranked amongst the Great List Makers Of All Time.
