Virgo, 2018 is your year to get intense! Intensity has its ups and downs, and you can make the most of the ups while coping skillfully with any downs.
When the sun enters Virgo, the moon conjoins go-for-broke Pluto in the most pragmatic of signs, Capricorn. This intensity colors your whole year.
Your planet Mercury has three retrogrades this year, all of them in fire signs (Aries in April, Leo in August, Sagittarius in November). After each retrograde, feel impassioned about yourself and your life, and watch everything fall into place for you.
Earth signs empower you, too. Uranus enters Taurus to keep finances and sensual pleasures reliable, as well as electrifying.
Saturn is retrograde in Capricorn from April until early September. Late August and early September will be powerful times for you.
Mars is retrograde from late June to late August, concluding in the final degrees of work-oriented Capricorn. Take your time and make no mistakes in your career and social lives.
And yes, it's a socially busy year. Enjoy it all!
