Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
While Mars is in Virgo, you might step out of your usually modest, low-key approach to dealing with authorities and present your accomplishments and ideas in a more compelling way. Good! You will be confident, and colleagues of all levels will respond to your passion and style and follow your lead—you could inspire a nation to your cause, especially from July 29 to September 14.
Mars will give you charisma, charm, energy, and a patina of attractiveness that others will notice and be drawn to. Ancient astrologers felt that having Mars in your sign was a considerable advantage when starting new ventures—you won’t let naysayers get the better of you. If you get turned down by someone whose approval or funding you need, you will come back with persistence and eventually score your victory.
Virgo is a highly intelligent sign, masterfully articulate and skilled in many phases of communication. Like Gemini, you are ruled by Mercury, and you certainly learned how to debate—and persuade—with ease. It’s usually because you do such careful preparation. Knowing that Mars is on the way to help you achieve (or at least begin work on) a major goal, start to plan now, and spring into action once Mars gets to Virgo, from July 29 to September 14, for your most vital initiations.
On July 13, Venus and Mars will make their once-a-year embrace, a conjunction, this time in Leo. This would be a perfect day to have a friend make an introduction and set you up for a blind date. If you’re attached, set up a date with your spouse or committed partner on July 13.
