You are somewhat stuck lately, Virgo, and also somewhat on the go as well considering all the positive energy that surrounds you. Old ideas that are too firmly lodged might have to give way before you will be as flighty as you desire to be. The mid-month New Moon energizes you and new experiences beckon, but only part-way. The good news in all your hesitation is that you will have plenty of food for thought allowing you to eventually resolve your situation over time. This is a big step that will take you most of the rest of this year to complete, but you get a huge head-start with the Full Moon at the end of this month in the sector of your psychological roots.
As the month begins, you are revisiting various aspects of philosophical perspective that you have been mulling over for many weeks now. Your ruler Mercury is retrograding through your sector of higher mind, and things that were once settled in this area might need to be revisited both during this time and after the retrograde period has passed. This includes your understanding of other cultures, the law and education system, and your beliefs in general. Travel or educational plans that you made last month might need to be altered to accommodate new ways of thinking about these matters. This can obviously be a bit dizzying especially considering that Saturn and Uranus have been facing off and confounding you over tug-of-war concerns of self and other. One recommendation is that you not take setbacks too seriously right now, preferring to wait for next month, and until then regarding them as necessary ingredients for research on how much stock you actually put in various aspects of your belief system. This is obviously a terrific time for journaling or just discussing things with trusted peers from a reflective standpoint but not a great time for forging ahead. The Last Quarter Moon of Wednesday, May 5th, might present you with quandaries over how to integrate your overall perspective and outer world intentions with an equally important ongoing deep commitment to personal evolution. The steps that you take concretely in meeting your obligations to real-world commitments might have been also up in the air somewhat for you lately with the changing tides of life circumstances, and this juncture could bring out the contrasts there more than ever. With the New Moon of Thursday, May 13th, which follows just after one peak of the retrograde period on May 11th, you might be looking for a new way that synthesizes various approaches regarding significant others in your life as well as your own agenda independent of others, and allows you to embrace the basic paradox of your situation. You have been through many changes lately and your self-definition is morphing into a richer conception, taking you further along an arc of development that leads you inexorably toward a new idea of who you really are. Each stage along the way illuminates how your everyday intention fits into a grander scheme of things that embraces soul purpose as well as mundane commitment. There are also wounds from early childhood that could come up for review now, issues buried away that have become habitual patterns of relating appropriate to an earlier time in your life. These may now be ready for you to acknowledge and move on from. Thus there are deeper issues that you might have to confront in these last two weeks of the month as you grope toward wholeness. With the First Quarter Moon of Thursday, May 20th, you might feel on the brink of uncovering something important regarding these ideas, poised for breakthrough. Then when the Full Moon hits in your home sector, taking place on Thursday, May 27th, you will know that you are really onto something; an important new beginning. The many ideas that come now, fast and furious, will smooth your way forward in the weeks ahead.
