Virgo representatives can expect the work aspect of the upcoming year of 2016 to be a quite effective, bright and successful, though a bit unstable period. The thing is that the patron of this time period is the traditional supporter of people born under this zodiac sign. Of course, Mercury is in question at this point. This means that you can expect various additional "bonuses" at the least expected "moments". For example, you are appointed to a new high-ranking position, which itself is quite a success since your paycheques and responsibilities are taken to a new level; at this point your "bonus" reveals itself as a both beautiful and significantly smart secretary. That is indeed a rather useful "bonus"! However, as you might have already guessed, nothing comes out of thin air, so you will have to work your fingers to the bone. Fortunately, the first half of the year, mainly up until the June-July period, will gladly help you with that. A powerful and intense energy flow will flood your inner self from the very first days of January; it is crucial to direct this flow towards work to achieve maximum productivity. At the same time, the situation will hardly have anything to surprise you with, since during the previous time period you've done everything to give, as they say, a crouch start in the new year, meaning that you have strong motivation and a powerful energy impulse. That's why you can focus solely on work up until the middle of the warm season of the year. Your competitors will hardly cause you any trouble, but of course, they will do their best to interfere with your success. There's no need to hold a grudge against them; fate will teach them a lesson. After a few failed schemes your competitors as well as other ill-wishers will abandon their idea to interfere with anybody's business. The key point is to stay strong and follow our own path regardless of circumstances.
The June-July period of 2016 will bring gradual, though dramatic changes to the situation. At first you will feel a significant decrease of your work pace; this will affect both your own productivity and business development on the whole. At this point it's crucial by all means to avoid the following mistake: trying to keep up the initial work pace at any cost. First of all, you won't be able to achieve that regardless of the cost you are be ready to pay for it. Second of all, it is important to understand the situation itself: your productivity is not decreasing at all, it gets back to its usual rhythm, since the first half of the year was marked by an increased dynamics. This is caused, in the first place by the fact that Mercury won't have such a great effect on your life as before; its energy flows will be far from significant as opposed to the previous time period. This means that you need to adjust to a new rhythm and reform your business accordingly. If you are a regular office worker, then there's no need for you to make fuss about it, even if your boss' tasks become less challenging with no strict deadlines. Overall, this half of the year promises to be a lot more calmer, which will help you to balance out all the projects and achieve all your goals with no rush.
