2017 Yearly Virgo Horoscope
For you, 2017 will be a time of endings and beginnings. It may not seem that way as you’re living out each of the year’s days, but once you’re able to look back on it, you’ll recognise the pattern of development that not only benefits you now, but will bring you welcome results for some time to come.
As a Virgo, and an earth sign, you were born under one of the most practical signs of the Zodiac. Yet you sometimes stick to what’s familiar, because in addition to being practical, you’re cautious. What’s more, because you’ve a tendency to be self-critical, you’ll sometimes choose to stick with what you know instead of venturing out into the unfamiliar and taking chances on something that you regard as risky or anxiety-producing. You may not realise you’re doing this at the time. In fact, you’ll have other, good reasons for the decisions you’re making.
Yet, with the powerful Saturn in the most strategic angle of your chart all this year, there’s a great deal to be learned from situations in which either you have very little control or from those in which you must leave everything to others – or perhaps even to what seems like fate.
You’ll know what this means as early as mid-March, when the Virgo-eclipsed full moon, on the 14th, brings circumstances that shape your life and lives of others. But this is only the beginning of a cycle that is as unusual as it is important. There will be two new moons in your sign this year, the first on 23 August and the second, an eclipsed new moon, on 22 September. This alone would be an indication of a new beginning in your life, because the new moon indicates a fresh start. However, because the second new moon is also eclipsed, indicating that circumstances around you trigger changes, some dramatic, not only should you be prepared for a fresh start, but events will encourage you to break away from elements of the past that are restrictive, and to let go of what you do merely out of habit.
This is perfect timing, because on 22 July, Mars, the planet of courage, ego and energy, moves into Virgo, remaining there until 8 September. Mars’s presence in Virgo will give you good reason to focus on who and what you most enjoy, what you would like more of in your life – and what you wouldn’t. Knowing what you want and turning those insights into action are two different things, so you’ll be thankful to know that Mars in Virgo also endows you with the courage to stand up for yourself, perhaps in ways you don’t usually do.
In fact, it’s interesting to note that with the expansive Jupiter actually in the part of your chart that has to do with communication until the end of November, it’s as important that you talk about things frankly as that you be true to yourself and pursue your objectives. This could mean that you’ll need to think things through and it could also mean that the more effort you make to ensure that others understand your viewpoint, the more support you’ll be able to rely on from them.
If you’re to make the best of this remarkable year, therefore, you’ll need to do several things. First, you’ll need to think through who you want to be and what you want to achieve. Then you’ll want to work hard to reduce your tendency to take a cautious approach to life, instead making a deliberate decision to take chances. And you’ll want to talk with others about what you intend to do. Each of these provides one component in your progress.
Most of all, keep in mind that because this is a year of personal transition, there won’t be any single right decision for you to make. Rather, you’ll make a series of decisions, each of which will take you closer to what you could do, what you want to do and, ultimately, what you discover around the time of the two new moons in your sign, in August and September, when dramatic changes in circumstances are likely to shape your choices. From that point onward, the path ahead will be clearer.
View 2017 as a year of exploration and discovery. And not only will you learn a great deal about yourself, but you’ll learn more about what makes you happy, about your relationships, goals, and about those around you, those who you can rely on and those who you can’t. And, most of all, you’ll strip away those protective habits that may have kept you from being happy or fulfilled and will, instead, begin to discover the new and broader world that will be your life from 2017 onward.

The horoscope Virgo sign is the Sixth Sign of the zodiac and is symbolized by a woman. She is viewed by some as a very young woman but most often she is thought of as an old maid.
In mythology, Virgo symbolized Astraea, the goddess of justice. She was so beautiful and everyone on Earth worshipped and loved her. When mankind’s inhumanity towards itself was too overwhelming for her and she could find no peace here on Earth, Astraea went to live in the sky, taking with her a stalk of wheat which she broke and scattered the grains across the sky, thus making the stars in the heavens.

Virgo Birthstone / September Birthstone
Sun in Virgo identifies ego with the need to serve and perfect the world. Virgo Suns are exacting, methodical, and critical. Virgo often bares a bad reputation for being naggy and hypercritical, however, be rest assured that they are no harder on anyone than they are on themselves. Actually, Virgo Suns are usually quite tough on their own quest for self-improvement, and often make martyrs out of themselves while looking to better themselves through the service of others. Virgo Suns have an amazing ability to adapt to any situation that comes upon them, and are willing to hold responsibility for their lives and choices. Virgo rules health, so not only do they understand the ways to keep the body humming under stress, but many keep themselves in excellent fitness to keep up with the rigorous routine they build for themselves. Virgo Sun tends to be quite practical, and will often go to the most logical solution for any given problem. They have clear thinking in a crisis situation, and are the people you go to if you need a job done right.
It is the Virgo Sun’s very nature to worry. It takes a great amount of character to overcome this, so when dealing with someone who has this placement, it is best to not trivialize their concerns, but rather to help them find a positive way of viewing the situation. They will worry anyway, just maybe not quite as much. Virgo Sun folks tend to be picky eaters, and would rather have you at their house than go to yours for a dinner engagement. To Virgo, compromising on this issue means letting them pick a restaurant. The Virgo Sun likes good food, nice clothing, and admires beautiful architecture. Their preferences are not set in stone, however, and if introduced to something new, they can change and adapt their preferences to new things that they learn. Virgo Sun loves to learn, the more information they can amass in a lifetime, the happier they are.
While the Virgo Sun has great qualities when it comes to function and practicality, they can be terrible tough and critical on themselves. When a Virgo Sun is unhappy with themselves, they have the inclination to be very critical and picky of everyone and everything around them. It is important for the Virgo Sun to keep in mind that while intelligent, they have to remember other people and how they contribute to their lives. When a Virgo Sun loses him or herself in critical thinking or work, they can often be completely unaware that their sharp words effect others in a very negative way. In an effort to perfect all that is around them, some will lose patience for others who are not working as hard. Also, Virgo Suns can ruin their own health through caring for and worrying about other people or their job. The consummate workaholic, sometimes they just do not know where to draw the line.
