Virgo, you’re ruled by quick-moving Mercury, master of information and communication. You’re a mutable sign motivated by common sense, perhaps this year more than ever, and your extraordinary attention to detail can lead to a very successful 2020.
There are three Mercury retrograde periods to be aware of: mid-February to early March, mid-June to early July, and mid-October to early November. All touch down in the intuitive water signs of Pisces, Cancer, and Scorpio, respectively. While Mercury retrograde is never convenient, you should be able to tap into your gut instincts to rise above the usual chaos and confusion that your retrograde home planet can cause.
Determined Saturn is in responsible Capricorn through the end of March, and you can apply this hardworking energy to improving your reputation within your family. Are you already looked at as the “responsible” one, or do you have a reputation for being immature? You can turn negative viewpoints around and make sure you gain your family’s respect by taking advantage of the hardworking aspect of this transit. Show you’re serious. Find ways to let your family know they can count on you when they need to.
The sun spends its usual time in Virgo from late August to late September, entering your practical sign only two days after your home planet Mercury starts a six-week trip through Virgo as well. This highly detailed, communicative time can be a turning point for you regarding getting your point across. If you’ve felt shut down and/or tuned out, this is the time to make sure you say your peace and maybe even get the last word in.
