Cue the Beyonce: its time to put a ring on itor maybe some ink on it. This Monday the 18th, the sun kicks off a monthlong tour of Pisces and your seventh house of committed relationships. You naturally crave security and certainty, and this week, the urge to merge intensifies considerably. Be gracious and calm: this week could bring a happy conversation about making a union officially official. Perhaps youll sign a contract with a great new client, or a lease for an office space with a fellow independent contractor. Maybe youll change your relationship status from Its Complicated to Engaged. You want agreements spelled out to the letter now! Remember that this also means that YOU are accountable for the long haul. Dont just partner up because youre worried about being alone. Screen candidates with your exacting eye and your Virgoan values in tow. You dont need a doppelganger now, but rather someone whose talents and skills complement your own. Have you already met your other half? On Saturday the 23rd, your ruling planet Mercury turns retrograde in Pisces, bringing some blast from the past figures back onto the mainstage of your life. Reconnecting with an old collaborator could be the recipe for a dynamic duo once again. Get ready for a few exes to pop up too. You never thought youd hear from HIM again, and suddenly hes blowing up your phone with texts about you being the one that got away. Should you fall for it, or hit the delete button as fast as you can? Consider this carefully, Virgo. If it was merely a matter of bad timing or a silly, overblown misunderstanding (a Virgo specialty, eek!) that broke you apart, it wouldnt hurt to have a conversation. Explore slowly, reserving final judgment for after Mercury turns direct on March 17. But if this person wreaked toxic havoc on your life once before, keep the door firmly shut. You dont need to relapse during Mercurys backspinnot after youve worked so hard to regain your strength! Coupled Virgos will weather some communication breakdowns during Mercury retrograde, but use them to your advantage. The floor is wide open to discuss those problems youve been sweeping under the rug. A couples therapist or workshop could be the very lifeline your relationship needs. A great relationship is not one that is conflict free. Its how you deal with the hard times that will tell the real storyand couldnt we all use a little guidance in this arena? Theres another retrograde on the decks this week, too. On Monday, Saturn does a 180 in Scorpio and your third house of communication. Your words have power, Virgo, and this retrograde will shine a light on that very fact. Do you have a book or screenplay in you; or maybe a revelatory piece that blows the lid off an industry? Get thee to a writers retreat! You could wind up with a lauded work on your hands by the time Saturn turns direct on July 7. So maybe youd rather leave the tell-all writing to Virgo journalists like Cat Marnell or Lisa Ling. You could use this Saturn retrograde to brush up your presentation skills. Although many a Virgo has rocked a stadium arena (Shania Twain, Faith Hill, and the aforementioned Beyonce to name a few), when it comes to standing in front of a crowd and speaking from the heart, you can be quite shy. Work with an acting coach, take a Toastmasters workshop, do some media training. Even if this leads you no farther than the ability to be more assertive in a room full of friends, finding your voice will be so empowering! Youre the zodiacs critic and Saturns backspin may actually help you gain greater insight into how your words are landing. Finding new ways to express discontent or gracefully disagree could be the saving grace for your friendships and relationships. You dont MEAN to come across as a righteous know-it-all, but sometimes, you slip down that slope without realizing how. If Saturn brings some backlash to your helpful critiques, harness the opportunity to grow and become a more loving communicator. Little changes can make an epic difference.
