2013: Virgo Overview
2013 brings you sweeping change and intensity, Virgo. The biggest transformation takes place in the realm of the mind. Communication, correspondence and courses of new study carry great importance. Saturn, the cosmic taskmaster, is spending a good chunk of time in the sector of your chart ruling the mental realms and communication. If you're not already a powerful public speaker, teacher or writer, get ready to discover your latent potential to sway the masses with your power of speech! You're also hungry for knowledge in 2013, and will want to strengthen your skill set and beef up your resume with even more knowledge than you possess naturally.
Jupiter continues to bring the potential for great promise and recognition to your career zone this year. Prepare to push all of your projects most strongly during the first half of the year while you have the support of Jupiter. The second half of the year will be better spent socializing and creating community. You'll be more interested in meeting new people than promoting your work. Get ready to meet amazing and passionate folks who will remain in your life for years to come.
The eclipse patterns stir up endings and new beginnings in relation to siblings, travel and legal issues. Siblings or close relatives could become a source of strain, and you'll have to create firm boundaries. In fact, boundaries in all realms of communication will serve you to avoid overload. Your life is about to become ridiculously busy and filled with more people than you know what to do with. At the end of the day, you're still a hermit at heart and need plenty of alone time, so be sure to carve that out regardless of how social your world becomes.
It's normal for your little one to have some issues with the other kids at school or day care. But today it is you who might have a verbal scuffle with a coworker or friend. It's best to just accept these small disagreements for what they are.
Try not to give in to too many requests today -- you've only got so much to give, and it's inevitable that you'll be stretched too thin if you aren't firm early on. Practice saying 'no' early and often!
Little touches make a big difference when cooking. Sub in fresh herbs for dried when possible -- it's amazing how alive fresh dill can make anything taste, from salads to entrees. And toasting nuts makes food take on a whole new dimension of flavor.
Knowing when to back off is a key element to building a great approach to style. Whether you're adding miles your marathon training regimen or coloring your hair for the second time this month, consider the toll and make alterations. It may be time to take a break.
