Congratulations, Virgo – you survived the raging lunacy that was 2016 and made it to the other side. Now that the New Year is here, you're ready to get down to ruling the world. But hold on a moment – because your ruler Mercury remains in retrograde through 8 January. Ease into your resolutions slowly and carefully – there's no rush. You might even want to continue taking it slow near the 12th, when the Full Moon opens the emotional floodgates in your house of goals and friends. Some kind of dramatic event might ensue involving your social network, so be prepared to feel your feelings. Two weeks later, on the 27th, there's a New Moon in your house of work. This is when you can truly, finally get down to the business of mastering the New Year, Virgo. It's time to set goals for your next six months of projects and do what you do best: get seriously organized. Just make sure not to whip yourself into such a stressful frenzy that you get sick. Again – there's more than enough time to achieve all your goals (and then some) if you pace yourself.

You're SO ready to put this year behind you, Virgo, and you're almost there. The awesome news is that December is (mostly) a positive month, setting you up for a 2017 that you'll like far, far better. As the month begins you're still floating on the energy of the late-November New Moon in your domestic zone. Continue healing broken relationships with family members, if necessary. The Full Moon arrives on the 13th, and it's a major boon for your career. A professional venture, idea, or new job that you began thinking about six-months ago is finally coming to fruition now, so enjoy the fruits of your labors and don't stress about the details, if at all possible. At the same time, you should aim to finish up any pending projects before the 19th – when your ruler Mercury goes retrograde for the fourth and final time of the year. Translation: try not to have ANY obligations straight through Christmas and New Year's. Note that Mars also moves into your partnership zone on the same day, making you a bit more likely to speak your mind with significant others. Definitely kick back and relax on the 21st, on the Winter Solstice, the very best day of the year to get cozy with your own feelings. The 29th is a spectacular day – it brings the New Moon in your pleasure zone in concert with Uranus, the planet of change, moving direct. Expect an anything goes New Year's Eve – enjoy every moment.
