Predictions 2015: Virgo

194px-Virgo.svgVirgo (for those born Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The new year finds you absorbed and nearly fixated on matters concerning children and creativity. When a Virgo burrows into the creativity zone, watch out. They barely come up for air.

But no sooner do you glance up from your projects and handiwork than you find yourself challenged by the first of the year’s three Mercury retrogrades, a time when your ruling planet appears to move backward in the heavens.

Mercury is known for his mental agility and speed. Retrogrades, then, are a time for life on Earth to catch up with Mercury’s fleeting ideas. It also allows you to slow down, review your thoughts and allow information to sink in. While necessary, retrogrades are seldom comfortable for Children of Mercury — especially in 2015, when all three occur in air signs. Air means relationships, and relationships mean people. For the self-reliant Virgo, people-who-need-people spells trouble. That’s how you come across, anyway, even though the big secret is that you love serving others. The good news in 2015 is that Jupiter, the planet of higher purpose and good fortune, enters your sign on Aug. 11. You can count on Jupiter to help you make sense of these challenges.

Predictions 2015: Gemini

229px-Gemini.svgGemini (those born May 21-June 20): 2015 is a year when your creative identity will emerge in ways you weren’t expecting. It is a year to reconnect with a higher power, to rethink your self-image, and to refine your creative offerings. The visionary in you is no doubt intrigued by these possibilities, but the skeptic in you can only wonder just how these good things might come to pass when all you feel is boxed in and possibly weighed down as the new year begins.

Partnership concerns are on the rise in early 2015, as is your focus on joint finances. Both topics may feel like a downer at the moment. For all your talk about your investments and your partner’s assets, you just aren’t able to call the shots right now. It’s frustrating because there may be differing opinions about how joint resources should be managed, and for some reason, your opinion doesn’t count.

If you are single right now, instead of celebrating your footloose and fancy-free ways like you used to do, you actually may be feeling vulnerable and insignificant.

The fact is that Saturn, the planet of trials and tribulation, has just entered the sign of Sagittarius and will be traveling through your solar house of partnerships until Dec. 2017. This means that your beliefs about marriage and business partnerships will be put to the test. If your relationships have a good foundation, they will be stronger and better for it.  If they aren’t, it may be time to ponder an exit strategy. You may also attract a partner during this time who will feel like it is his or her job to test you. [Continued at RulingPlanets.com]
