Virgo’s Life Horoscope
When it comes to communicating well, there’s nothing like putting a little extra thought into what it is, exactly, that you actually want to say. Think about this on the 1st and 2nd. After all, if you casually mention that you wouldn’t mind sushi when really you’ve been seriously considering going vegan, you can hardly be surprised when your dining companion is a little put out that you won’t eat anything at the restaurant where they cashed in a favor to get a last minute reservation because they thought that was what you wanted. Right? Loosen up on the 5th. Physically, mentally and emotionally! By the high achieving, highly loving, very, very positive 8th and 9th, you’re achieving a lot, feeling loved and generally in a pretty positive kind of space. Wonderful!

Virgo’s Love Horoscope
You’re used to be being detail-oriented at work. But on the 1st and 2nd, you might want to consider applying some of that detail-orientation to your relationship (or potential relationship). For example, do you know you like each other, but you’re both ‘too busy’ (read: Too shy) to actually set a date and time to meet? Make sure you’re not without your date book the next time you see them so you can pin down a meeting at that lovely little seafood joint around the corner, once and for all. You’ll both be glad you did. Don’t brag on the 5th. But it is okay to let them know just how lucky they are to have landed you, if the situation calls for it. You’re feeling pretty romantic and so are they on the good-vibe-filled 8th and 9th. Well, great! After all, it does take two to tango. Going with the flow is without a doubt the best strategy to adopt on the 14th and 15th. Even if you think you want to direct the flow, you don’t. So go with it. Seriously.

Virgo’s Money Horoscope
You know how it is in an office: Somebody’s in a good mood, somebody’s in a bad mood, everybody else comes into work in moods that are various shades of neutral. Regardless of what the exact balance is on the 1st and 2nd (two moody, one upbeat? Three upbeat, one fit-to-be-tied?), whether you have a good or bad day is really actually totally up to you. If you want to see things in a positive light, you can. If you want to join the forces of darkness and storm around the office, slamming doors and spilling water on the folks gossiping at the water cooler, well, you can put a damper on any day pretty quick. So make the best, most positive choice. By the 5th, stay loose. You’re in for some very good news on the excellent 8th and 9th, and you’re feeling fabulous.
