Can you believe that 2018 is actually here, Virgo? It may not be clear when you wake up on New Year's Day. This is complicated by an emotionally overwhelming Full Moon/Supermoon, one that falls late at night on the first day of the year. This lunation takes place in your house of friends, so watch for a bit of drama with your girl squad. It's possible that this already happened in the lead-up to the Full Moon – in the waning hours of 2017. But if you have a brunch planned, the combination of collective hangovers and unaired feelings could set the scene for a row. On the other hand, this can be an occasion for an incredible creative collaboration, potentially based on seeds that were planted last summer. In fact, the first two weeks of the year are superbly creative – and irrepressibly romantic. This lovely phase culminates in a powerful New Moon on the 16th. This is your best opportunity to set intentions for both your love life and your biggest creative dreams. Write it down or at least talk about it, Virgo. The more concretely you define your wishes, the better the universe will be equipped to help you manifest them in the next six months. Adding to the magical mixture of the month is a rare second Full Moon/Supermoon on the 31st. This isn't just a normal lunation, it's a Lunar Eclipse that speaks to an experience, idea, or interaction that you had last August. A dream you dared to dream is starting to blossom now, and you must tend to this delicate cosmic flower with love and gentleness.

December
may seem strange at first, Virgo – as if time is speeding up and
slowing down at the same time. That's because the first weekend of the
month is a bit of a weird whirlwind, and it has much to do with you.
Your ruler Mercury begins his last retrograde of the year on the 3rd,
and just a few hours later there is a Full Moon in Gemini (the other
sign ruled by Mercury). For the next few weeks, the communication planet
will travel backward through your home and family zone. In some ways
this is wonderful for the holiday season - it can bring you closer to
the people you most love. At the same time it can bring some chaos and
misunderstanding, so aim to express yourself with equal amounts of love
and clarity. The New Moon lands in the same part of your chart on the
18th, so if any errors in judgment happen, you can fix them at this
moment, and aim to improve your close relationships during the next six
months. Saturn, the planet of rules, is leaving this part of your
horoscope after 2.5 years. The message is that you've learned many
lessons about your early childhood and formative relationships during
recent years, and you're now ready to make that material work for you.
Friends provide safe space around Christmas – try to connect with them,
if not see them around this time. By New Year's Eve you're all about
making some kind of major impact – it's an "I wanna see my name in
lights" kind of night. Whether you dress to impress or just make a mark
with sparkling conversation, you should adore the last night of 2017.
