2003 horoscopes: Virgo
Your love life in 2003
A string of good personal days starts your year. You're self-aware and self-motivated. After the Sun enters Aquarius, your comfort level plummets as others demand more. You can maintain control even if these aren't exactly the happiest days of your life. Unrealistic opportunities surround you in late February and for most of March. You'd never agree to these choices in your right mind, but they're just so tempting. You might go willingly now, but later you could regret your decision.
There's nothing easy about the first month of Spring. Ambitions step aside as fear masquerading as convenience enters your life. Other people's optimism leaves you feeling cheated. By April 26th, you're in a position to indulge your whims. The following three weeks bring a critical shift in how you see and feel about the world. You spend the rest of your Spring trying to keep your head above the water. Luckily, you're a strong swimmer.
Your year improves dramatically at the Summer Solstice. People trust each other enough to start having fun. Friendship, romance, business and public service are all highly rewarding during July and August. You scale new heights of physical and mental fitness as the Sun reaches your Sign, a phase intensified by planetary events on August 28th. You gain safe access to dangerous knowledge. You're bursting to use all you have, but show a little self-control. Some of this will prove extremely handy a few months from now.
By late September, the externals matter as much as the essence. You have to bargain for what you'd prefer to control. Events set in motion a long time ago are pushing you toward the point of no return. Come out swinging with your best and bravest as the Sun comes to Scorpio in October. Your directness is alarming, but you have to do what feels right. Thanksgiving makes you nostalgic for the past on which you recently slammed the door, although there's little chance of undoing what you did so energetically. On December 17th, however, you learn to appreciate the gift you gave yourself. If others could benefit from sharing it, don't hesitate.
