Your monthly stars for February are now live on the website. Scroll down the Home page to find your star sign and enjoy reading what February has in store for you.
After January’s false start (Mercury retrograde), this month feels promising, an excellent time to get ahead and start the year properly if you’ve been procrastinating or stopped in your tracks.
February is a busy month in the yearly calendar as we celebrate Imbolc (2 Feb), Carnival (5-8 Feb), Chinese New Year (8 Feb), Pancake Day (9 Feb), Ash Wednesday & the start of Lent (10 Feb), Valentines Day (14 Feb), the Oscars (28 Feb). Something there for everyone, plus as 2016 is a Leap Year, we get an extra day. What will you do with yours?
This is a fabulous New Moon for new beginnings so forget failed New Year resolutions, don’t worry that we’re already one month in to a new year, brush yourself down and start again.
A New Moon is a brilliant symbol for setting new intentions, for looking ahead, for plotting and planning, for being inspired. Aquarius loves technology so use it to your advantage; Aquarius is a humanitarian sign so don’t just talk about making a difference, make it happen.
It’s your birthday month and the Sun remains in your sign of Aquarius until the 19th. This turns your attention towards new goals, what you want for yourself on a personal level.
Yet this month you can’t focus solely on the future and what next because you also have to wrap up some outstanding business which belongs in the past.
This is due to the movement of the communication planet, Mercury, which starts the month in your previous sign of Capricorn. This is the most hidden sector of your chart and this is why you’re dealing with something in your life that’s not yet complete, a secret or confidence, something personal to you.
As the month begins, it’s important to wrap up anything that’s incomplete before you press on with new projects or ventures. This may be linked to a group in which you’ve been involved or concerning a friend in connection with money matters.
Last month, communication planet Mercury turned retrograde in Capricorn and the sector of your chart which rules friends, groups and social activities.
This could have been a frustrating time for you whether you’ve been changing your mind about your involvement with one particular group of people or whether incompetence and misunderstandings coloured your close relationships.
After the frustrations in January, there’s no reason not to go full steam ahead in February. Communication planet Mercury is now back up to full speed in Capricorn and your career sector, and the first fortnight in February is excellent for career plans, networking, and focusing on the bigger picture in your life.
In addition, your ruling planet Mars is strong in Scorpio. This is a powerful placing for the planet of action, determination and drive. This is your turn to be fearless, to find the courage in your soul and to say Yes to new challenges. S/he who dares wins the most in the month ahead.
The pesky antics of communication planet Mercury in your travel and study sector are over. Theoretically this means that early February is a good time to go on holiday, to book a trip, to sign up for a course. It seems however that things have changed and events on or around the weekend of the 6th/7th reveal the reason why.
At this time, your ruling planet Venus is in Capricorn like Mercury and the focus again returns to experiences and activities which broaden your horizons.
Yet Venus clashes with the Uranus/Pluto pair during this weekend and whether you’ve changed your mind or you’re unhappy with the reasons why your plans changed, you’re not taking life lightly. Be honest with yourself if you’re holding onto resentment or difficult emotions and deal with these before you make any final decisions.
It’s likely that 2016 may not have begun in the way you would choose. Last month, your ruling planet Mercury was retrograde i.e. on go slow in one of the most hidden sectors of your chart.
You may have experienced problems around money or joint finances or you’ve been dealing with a taboo issue that still requires resolution.
Communication planet Mercury remains in Capricorn and this same sector of your chart until the 13th. Once February gets underway, you can deal with matters more openly and whether you talk to people close to you, write things down or analyse your thoughts, It’s important to process fully whatever’s been going on.
Relationships are a key theme in February and as the month begins, both communication planet, Mercury, and the planet of relating, Venus, remain in Capricorn and your relationship sector.
Last month’s stars may have coincided with confusion and misunderstandings in your one-to-one interactions, but Mercury is no longer retrograde and love planet Venus keeps you on track.
The weekend of the 6th/7th is pivotal with regard to love relationships as planetary activity intensifies and you are asked to decide what you want and why. You may find you return to the questions which haunted you in January or the issue you found hard to resolve.
The Sun is in your opposite sign of Aquarius as the month begins. This is both good and bad news. Firstly, the good news. The Sun in Aquarius highlights your love life and close relationships.
This is a promising time for close connections and you can start to sort out any muddles or misunderstandings which lead to confusion as 2016 began.
The period from the 3rd-6th is extremely helpful in this respect. Make time for love, work at your close relationships and most importantly be flexible. You can’t be stubborn now and it may be time for a rethink about love and the possibility of doing things differently.
As the month begins, your ruling planet Mercury remains in your fellow earth sign of Capricorn until the 13th. This puts the spotlight on all the good things in life, such as romance, children, creative projects, entertainment and fun.
Plus communication planet Mercury is no longer retrograde and you’re free to make some clear decisions about what you want in a specific area of life. Ideally wait until the 6th when your planet Mercury is a stunning aspect with the planet of opportunity and growth, Jupiter, in your sign of Virgo.
Your ruling planet Venus is in Capricorn as the month begins and the sector of your chart which rules your home and family, your past and where you come from. This has been a very active sector of your chart since the start of 2016 but not always in a straightforward or helpful way.
This is because another planet in Capricorn is communication planet Mercury and last month Mercury was retrograde or on go slow. This often raises issues around communication, mix-ups and misunderstandings.
