2012: Virgo Love


Venus might not make its way into your chart until October, but you'll have plenty of other powerful planetary influences to keep your romantic life flourishing. For one thing, you'll have the supercharged masculine mojo of Mars revving your stars for the first six months of the year. You'll have no problem going for what you want - and getting it!

Pluto continues to exert a powerfully subterranean influence over your romance sector, as it will for years to come. You're slowly becoming accustomed to Pluto's ongoing death-and-rebirth experiences in the realms of love and creative self-expression. You've already shed many selves over the past few years, and Pluto has been gutting out your love life in order to create space for greater levels of passion and intimacy. You may have learned - or you may still be learning - the hard way that the more you let go, the more you receive.

With the rather new presence of Neptune - the planet of glamour, illusion and longing - in your partnership sector, you're still finding your sea legs in that area of your life. Relationships are no longer a problem to be solved, but a mystery to be lived. Discrimination used to be one of your finest points when choosing a partner, but now you're more prone to the highs and lows of romantic projection. Seeing what you want to see, rather than what's real, is the true pitfall of Neptune's rose-colored glasses. Under Neptune's influence, you have a tremendous amount of compassion for your partner. Just be wary of becoming too self-sacrificing.

Much as you strive to stick to schedule, other people keep changing it up. If you can just accept that delays come with the territory, you'll navigate more smoothly. And the tyke doesn't mind a little improv now and then.



If it's up to you, today's big launch or project gets canceled. There's nothing wrong with that -- in fact, knowing when to say no is one of the key elements of real success. Don't be shy!



There's no reason to rush around today. Your mellow mood will lend itself to total relaxation. So leave off doing some of your usual chores unless absolutely necessary. Skip grocery shopping. Today will be all about convenience, and the joys of take-out Chinese.



Honesty, now more than ever, is your best policy. So if your stylist asks what you think of her idea for your hair or your best pal wants an assessment of the dress she's trying on, be sensitive and cut to the chase.
