Virgo your january guide
1st-8th: Back in shape. Now that the holidays are over, you can resume a healthful regimen, Virgo. With your ruling planet Mercury entering your solar 6th on the 8th, go back to eating three solid meals and making sure you do not eat on the run. Consider joining a gym where you can use the machines and take a few classes. If possible, hire a trainer to show you the ropes.
9th-16th: Personal challenge. Continue to challenge yourself by stepping up your routine and experimenting with new, healthful recipes. Mercury conjoins Saturn and Jupiter in your solar 6th on the 9th and the 11th, so you will be more disciplined than ever. Combining this with a focused work schedule will make you feel as if you are in control of your life.
17th-23rd: Yearn to learn. Mars forms a conjunction with Uranus in your solar 9th on the 20th, so this is the perfect opportunity to sign up for an exciting class, seminar, or lecture. With new offerings available, you have a wide array of subjects to choose from. They might not have practical use, but they will whet your appetite for gaining knowledge.
24th-31st: Creative space. With the Full Moon highlighting your solar 12th on the 28th this is a perfect time to retreat from social activities. Making time to express yourself creatively should be at the top of your list of New Year’s resolutions. Finding that time, as well as a quiet space where you can work on your own ideas is the first step. The rest will follow.
