Your Virgo Horoscope for May 2016 could mean re-visiting ancient cultures. Going to a place that has a sacred, ancestral connection for you, would be the best way to use Mercury Retrograde this month. The Sun is also shining on the map of the world for you this month so maybe use some astrocartography in your Virgo way and combine geography with astrology. It is a good way to neutralise the tough full Moon this month. Getting away to somewhere fresh and unassociated with childhood triggers might be a good way to heal or paradoxically somewhere ancestral where you can feel like you belong without the pain of closer parental abuse. In traditional astrology, the Sun is in its joy in your sector of foreign cultures and spirituality, and why wouldn’t it be? For the Sun here inspires you to push yourself through boundaries and go further than you normally would. Travel broadens the mind they say and it can only reach it’s higher self by giving it room to grow. Take this time to get out of your parochial box and speak to different types of people from diverse social backgrounds. This will help give you a different perspective on the world. New horizons beckon and give fresh vistas on your life. This is the month to get metaphysical as the Sun in this sector of the chart questions dogma and shines it’s light on dimensions one was previously blind too. You may literally make friends with a foreigner or connect with a spiritual guru type mentor at this time. This wanderlust lasts until May 21 when it’s back to work with a vengeance. You should be revitalised and fully charged up to get the benefits from the spotlight now being on your status in the world and career. It’s time to remind people who you are.
Virgo May 2016 ~ Mercury Retrograde
Learn a foreign language, yes go on! This is utterly the best time for it. Mainly because even your mother tongue will sound like Swahili to you, so you might as well go the whole hog. I would love to advise you to travel too, but every other astrologer on the planet will be screaming “NO!!!” Well dammit I’m still going to advise travel, but we have to be a bit clever and out-trick the trickster. So, first check if during this period Mercury Rx is making a hard aspect to the ruler of your 3rd house (local journeys) or the ruler of this house. If not, then you are good to go. As always, take normal Mercury Rx precautions like; read the holiday description thoroughly before you book, double checking your itinerary, flight times etc etc. Then do things that Mercury Rx loves, like visit somewhere you have been before (So a re-visit.) or somewhere you want to re-turn to. Going somewhere with a past life connection is another option. Researching into ancient cultures would be fabulous, and if that includes visits to sacred sites so much the better. Reunions with old friends with whom you share the same philosophy in life would be a lovely way to use this energy. You will enjoy recounting past events that you have shared.
Virgo May 2016 ~ Emotions
You will also need to be well rested to cope with the May 21 Full Moon. This is one of the most emotionally draining lunations you experience in the year as its position opens up long buried family skeletons. The natural thing to do as you regress to the mental state of a 3 year old is to want to cocoon yourself in bed and wrap yourself up in the fluffiest duvet you can get hold off for protection. This is the Moon womb par excellence. I wouldn’t bother to push yourself out of your comfort zone as you will act the most crankiest PMT monster to your nearest and dearest. Keep away from anyone that presses your infantile buttons, or anyone that is quite bratty as things could turn very ugly, very quickly. Keep away from trolling internet activity as again, you will seem to attract comments that echo your parents worst criticisms of you. You won’t be able to deal with anything in an objective matter at all for the next two weeks. If you are lucky enough to have dream parents then go home and let them cook for you. Heaven!!
Virgo May 2016 ~ Love
With all the solar emphasis on your travel sector, it would not be surprising if you are transported to far off lands because of a love encounter. There is the high possibility of a holiday romance up until May 23. On the other hand you could simply find yourself attracted to foreigners were you live at this time. The “far off lands” effect could also be an expansion of your mind. A date could take you to a cultural event that opens you up to art, theatre or music that is alien to you. But this new perspective is exciting and spiritually energising. You will be going beyond your comfort zone thanks to the pioneering energy of your partner, which is great for personal growth. Romance and travel come together beautifully at this time, so wether you are single or in a couple, make sure you take time out to explore sacred sites or places of natural beauty. This will magically refuel new passion into your love life. You could also meet a potential mate in a classroom setting, so starting a course of study is recommended and will feed both your heart and mind during this blossoming Venus transit.
