The July 22 solar eclipse will rock your astrological world long after it’s over. Find out how it’s affecting Virgo…
There’s no going back now.
The longest solar eclipse of the century falls at the most potent position of Cancer, the 29th, or “anaretic” degree, which means it’ll stir up everything – from the inside out.
Some signs may experience deep loss that must be faced to move on to the next level. Others may break out of a loveless groove or welcome introspection and renewal.
Here’s how this eclipse will affect Virgo (for the next six months):
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
A powerful transformation is afoot in your friendships and associations. As a Virgo, you’ve always been cool with being a bit of loner. The scars of high school still linger, whether you were the most popular or the least. The solar eclipse will obliterate old wounds and force you to stop worrying about issues that don’t befit your stature.
It’s time to let go of all the worrying about being perfect – the wrinkles in your clothes, wondering if your makeup is flawless, stressing over a presentation. During the next six months (and the years beyond) you’ll realize that your creativity has been viciously blocked by anxiety about being accepted. Once you let go of that angst, your fondest aspirations will come true.
The 11th house – the location of the eclipse in your chart – also rules goals. So stop being such a team player and wish on your lucky stars, Virgo. It’s all about you now, not about pleasing others.
