Week beginning Monday, 18 December 2017

There are lots of important new lessons coming everyone's way now, thanks to Saturn's move into Capricorn. For you it means the pressure is finally coming off you in your private life, when it comes to dealing with family and your actual bricks-and-mortar home. However Saturn hasn't altogether disappeared. Rather, he has moved to the part of your chart to do with having fun, kids and creativity. You need a better strategy for all these parts of your life, moving forwards. For more info about your week, call our Angel Card line: 1900 999 888

Month of December

Get ready for a big month! We have so many different events taking place in the cosmos, which are sure to shake things up. To start, Mercury is retrograde between the 3rd and 23rd of December, so it's time to embrace words that start with "re"--Rethink, redo, rewrite, reconsider, etc. This will be an excellent time to reorganize your home, rearrange your furniture, and reconnect with your roots. Strive to find a new sense of inner peace, by restructuring your private life. The day after Mercury goes retrograde, we will have a Full Moon in Gemini, which is sure to be a very important event. This is a time of finding a better work/life balance, and making some changes in your perception of success. Two weeks later, on December 18th, we will have a New Moon in Sagittarius, which will likely represent a new beginning in your home life. You may be considering a move, or looking into ways that you can find a greater sense of happiness in your current living space. And finally, on the 20th Saturn will enter Capricorn, after spending over two years in Sagittarius. This will begin a period of learning to take love seriously; anything superficial is likely going to seem less interesting to you now. This is also the beginning of a period of time that will ask you to focus on improving your creative talents. December is asking you to be serious, and to reorganize the way that you live life.

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.
