Virgo 2017 stars: your year ahead

You may look cool, calm and collected, but people don’t see all your work behind the scenes. If you’ve taken on too much, Saturn could prompt a purge through autumn (seasons refer to Southern hemisphere): more help, less work or new routines at home. Finances might also come under scrutiny, but simplifying things should feel good; you might even update you will.

Winter’s sentimental sky will draw old friends out of the woodwork, but from spring, your social circle will expand. Friendships struck under Jupiter’s sparkling rays may feel instant – and fated. A common interest could morph into a full-blown passion, or the line between work and play might blur.

Keywords: productive, hardworking, responsible, visionary, over-extended, supportive

Love & friendship

Life looks busy enough, so please don’t volunteer for anything more … at least until spring. If you want to relax, think like a child. Ride a bike, learn to surf or get creative at home. Couples may spend much of March in deep conversation, but excess baggage may need to be let go. New friends could enter the picture from October, possibly via a club or charitable group, while singles might find an added incentive to getting fit. Those escapist travel fantasies will only intensify as summer approaches, so start saving!

Cash & career

Just as you think you’ve got it all sorted! An inheritance or cash bonus might boost the coffers, but resist the urge to overextend yourself, for winter could bring a change of heart. Financial or professional matters may come under a cloud during autumn, but if you’ve put in the legwork, a more fulfilling path should appear by mid-July. The cooler weather might also awaken an underlying interest in real estate or old wares; you could even discover a talent for restoration, or your nose for a bargain might prove profitable.

Health & wellbeing

If those energy levels are flagging, the cosmos is about to give you a helping hand. The January 28 new moon could instigate a full-scale health and fitness kick; as your confidence climbs, you might even find yourself mentoring or supporting others. Fresh air should enthuse you this year, drawing you to outdoor activities – and active, outdoorsy people as well. Group pursuits will bring out your best from spring, and as Mercury sharpens your intellect, a study course might reel you in. As they saw, use it or lose it.

Virgo food & fitness style

Being the most health conscious sign, fresh and organic is best for you. Some may call you fussy, but being an earth-ruled sign, root crops, salads and whole foods suit you and your digestive system best. To add more variety and flavor, why not start a herb garden?

Virgos are generally one of the fittest signs … when they can find the time! Regularity is the key so if need be, draw up a schedule and stick it on the fridge. Activities that require precision, like Pilates and Iyengar yoga often appeal, along with bowling, tennis and walking. Kick things off with a personal training session, but first, grab some good shoes.

Virgo gemstones and crystals

Peridot (your special healing stone), amber, blue topaz, chrysocolla, carnelian, citrine, garnet, moonstone, opal, sodalite, sardonyx (a ruling stone). I you’d like to order crystals please email me at … I often have a few in stock.

Virgo travel style

Simplicity is the key to a successful holiday for Virgos, along with fresh air, good company and delicious food. If you return home feeling fitter and healthier, all the better. Wellness retreats and walking holidays tick all the right boxes.

TRY: Hinterland health spa, beach house, yoga retreat, craft workshop in Bali, cooking school, walking holiday, wellness expo, campervan trip, food and wine fair, golfing holiday, Rainforest eco tour, charitable projects
