Sun sign Virgo (Aug. 22 to Sept. 22)

Your friends are taking on a new meaning in your life. If you had previously ignored them, they will become more important to you. And if they had played a central role or you had become too dependent upon them, you will experience more distance between yourself and the people you had considered your friends. All change is preceded by a withdrawal to collect one's resources. That is your task for this week.

Moon in KANYA (Stars - the last three quarters of Uttaraphalguni, Hashta and the first two quarters of Chitta)

Politicians gain support. Improved opportunities for professionals, students, sportspersons and traders. New ventures move very well. Romance and speculation are not advised. Business associates may be hard to reach. Artists and working women should defer important moves.

Chandrashtama: Continuing from last week to 3-27 a.m. on June 19.
