Read what your sign’s 2018 horoscope predictions have in store for you, or check out the Virgo personality profile.
Virgo is ruled by Mercury, the quick-witted, fast-talking planet associated with communication and curiosities. It’s no surprise that you’re one of the most intellectual signs of the zodiac: You value all forms of expression, including reading and writing. Now that the sun is in like-minded earth sign Taurus, your chart’s ninth house — that’s the zone associated with expansion, travel, and higher learning — is activated. It’s time to take your studies to the next level, Virgo babe. Double down on your strengths by enrolling in a course, reading some inspiring literature, or journeying to a faraway place that broadens your perspective. I know you’re a creature of habit, but you don’t want to miss this opportunity to explore.
The distant cosmos is advocating for your growth: Uranus is making a major shift, moving into Taurus for the first time in 84 years. On May 15, Uranus, the planetary representation of progress, illuminates your ninth house, motivating you to break out of your comfort zone. In mundane astrology, a practice that associates world events with cosmic activity, Uranus governs earthquakes. Fittingly, for the next eight years, Uranus is guaranteed to shake up your world. Make sure your bags are packed, Virgo darling, because Uranus’s influence may begin rumbling midmonth. Also on May 15, a new moon in Taurus links up with Uranus, signaling the beginning of a new and exciting chapter.
Your romantic interests neatly align with your other journeys. When Venus glides into Cancer on May 19, you become increasingly interested in cultivating a community that supports your values. You realize that while interpersonal dynamics are important on their own, they can catalyze larger projects, too. Over the next few weeks, build bonds with people who share your principles and support your vision, and don’t be afraid to reach out to people who inspire you. This is a great time to kick off innovative collaborations.
The following day, the sun’s movement into Gemini highlights your career zone, a perfectly timed cosmic motion that supports your dynamic evolution. You feel confident and motivated under this radiant sun, so use this as your chance to reach new professional heights. Talk to your boss about a promotion, dip your toes into a job search, or formalize a business plan to launch your own enterprise.
It’s wise, however, to save any potentially life-changing conversations until after the full moon in Sagittarius on May 29. During this lunation, any blind spots in your strategy are vividly illuminated. Whatever is revealed during this month’s full moon is sure to build your strength, so embrace the information and plan accordingly. You’ll be busy plotting your ascent this month, but as you reap the rewards of the sun’s transit into Gemini, don’t forget to protect yourself from its rays. Fortunately, Supergoop Everyday Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50 makes that easy to do: It’s a lightweight formula that will nourish your skin without cramping your style.
