So Mars has moved into workaholic Virgo (as of November 10th) and, on November 26th, Venus will move into disciplined Capricorn. Could relationships get any more real?
It's going to be all about relationship work. Actions, not words. And serious follow up. Commitment phobes will not enjoy this energy one bit. If you're single you can do a 10 point overhaul on yourself and build (Capricorn) something worthwhile. You're familiar with the theory that if you want an outstanding partner you must turn yourself into an outstanding partner? Venus in status-driven Capricorn will have zero tolerance for those with no ambition. And Mars in Virgo does have that perfectionist fetish.
This is not charitable. Charitable is for Sagittarius, Cancer and Pisces. Virgo and Capricorn want people to get their act together. The good news is that even little improvements will go a long, long way (Virgo rules details). You don't have to be a superstar, you just need to set some goals. Goals are not very sexy but if you make a genuine effort to repair your relationship/appreciate your partner/work on yourself, you'll see payback.
