It's no secret that the whole world is suffering from the effects of a global recession right now, with some lucky countries faring much better than others. In the USA and UK, things are particularly tough and all star-signs have been touched to one degree or another. Yet, two signs seem to be suffering more than most and after receiving quite a large number of emails from these signs, I feel I really need to reach out and offer some support. So Virgo and Pisces ... today's blog is just for you!
Naturally, the best way an astrologer can give you their advice is if you have your horoscope analysed based on your own date of birth. That's because the only thing you really share with all the other people of your star-sign is having your sun in the same sign: Virgo or Pisces. In reality, there's a whole lot more to a horoscope than just that! However, leaving this point aside for the moment there are some astro factors that may be having an influence on your particular situation right now. So here's the inside scoop!
For both signs, Saturn, the planet most often associated with restriction, hard work and important life lessons, is sitting in the area of the chart associated with money. For Virgo this is money that you earn yourself whilst for Pisces, this is money that belongs to others. So Virgo, you may find yourself having to take a pay cut at work, or perhaps there is a reason you are unable to work right now. Whilst Pisces, there is much to suggest that you're getting yourself into quite a bit of debt. Are you borrowing from Peter in order to pay Paul?

Saturn moved to this area of your chart back in July 2010 and he isn't going to leave until October 2012 which means that for many, we're only halfway through the hard slog. Yet fear not! There is some light at the end of the tunnel! For one thing, once Saturn has passed over the most sensitive parts of your chart, you'll be well on the road to recovery, even if he hasn't left your money sector yet. It's not going to be tough going for the whole two years ... now that would be depressing! And secondly, once Saturn does leave, many people often find that something really good comes into their life. In this case, it could well be a chunk of money.
The key to making sure you get your graduation gift from Saturn is to try your hardest to learn the life lessons he is currently sending your way. If that means cutting back on expensive dinners out or trying not to run up credit card debt, then you need to do it. There's no point in making the situation worse for yourself and this is one way in which you can reassert your control over the situation.
Despite how it may feel at times, you are not powerless right now. You can change your financial situation if you really want to. It might be very hard work, but even making small changes to your expenditure will eventually start to add up. Remember, that Saturn has no patience for people who are too attached to their sense of pride. You need to be prepared to let go of how you like to think of your life and start to accept the reality of how it is today. Once you do that you'll be surprised how quickly your money karma will start to turn around.
So don't lose hope Virgo and Pisces. Better times really are just around the corner.
