This is another interesting month for you, Virgo, when inner work is necessary to pave the way for outer world success. In accordance with the retrograde of Mercury, you are looking under the covers of your personality for clues as to how to navigate the tumultuous white water ahead. As the month begins, you have partnership on your mind and in your heart, with an emphasis on ideal solutions that might need better grounding in the reality of your situation. Then, after the first week of the month, in the timing of the March 9th Full Moon in your sign, your values are tinged with bright imaginings and mystical purpose. Both idealism and self-deception are in the offing. You might feel somewhat stuck in your rut, even through your awareness of higher mind activities. While much of your energy is focused on the Other, you are also going through a major transformation in self-expression, especially toward month’s end. It might help you to remember that you and your developmental process are your most important products.
