WEEK OF June 8 – 1 4, 2020
With the Sun beaming in your career zone for the past few weeks, you’ve probably got your head back in the game, whether you’re WFH or working essentially. Come Thursday, you’ll be ready to downshift—and perfect timing. A disruptive square from quixotic Neptune throws the Sun off its goal-focused game. The very people you need to help you advance may prove uncooperative or unreliable and you won’t have much energy to push. Rally Team Virgo as best you can, but accept the fact that some things are beyond even your control. Warning: You may feel pressure to prove yourself to a colleague by taking on extra work, even assignments that cut into your weekend. A rule of thumb worth remembering? If you have to sacrifice an important plan or your commitment to self-care, you’re probably on the wrong path. Honoring your highest values is the path to long-term victory for your ethical sign. But get ready: Setting boundaries might “offend” your colleagues who are used to you being at their beck and call. Time to let them know, Virgo. You might be the sign of service, but you’re nobody’s servant.
Empowerment tip for Saturday? Saying “I’m sorry” every time you turn down an unreasonable offer, disagree with bae or splurge on something decadent is not the path to self-love. As the warrior Mars makes its biennial connection to sacrificial Neptune in your relationship corner, you are due to strengthen your backbone by sticking up for what feels good to YOU. Unless you’ve made a genuinely egregious error, all you have to do is own your actions and get on with your day. If you’re feeling a little unsure about this, practice the pregnant pause. Wait an hour (or a day) before you rush to clear the air from a so-called conflict. The good news is that people aren’t as sensitive as you think, and your silence will give them a chance to reflect on their own actions—and maybe even think about how THEY impacted YOU. Under this transit, a lover’s quarrel could escalate quickly, especially if you’re being snarky instead of direct. Don’t fall into a Neptune-Mars passive-aggressive trap. If you have a legit complaint, by all means talk about it, but remember: Timing is everything when it comes to bringing up touchy topics.
