Mars, the action planet, continues to move through your sign of Libra this month, although it’s slowing down. You can get a lot done now especially pursuing your own goals and personal things that matter to you, your fitness included.
On some level, this may go hand in hand with what’s happening at home or within the family. This is where you find Venus, your ruling planet, down at the base of your chart and Venus is now back up to speed after being retrograde, i.e. on go slow throughout January.
So wherever life’s been stuck with regard to home and domestic matters, you can begin to make progress and in turn this will free up more time or space for you. This is also the only month out of the first five months of the year that Mars and Venus are both in direction motion. As Venus is your ruling planet and Mars your partner planet, this is a perfect month to work on relationships and try and resolve any issues that have been causing problems.
If you are married or in a relationship, it may be that life’s testing you right now and you need to find a way to work with the differences between you and your significant other. Getting the home/life balance right is also important especially for those of you who have young children. Divvy up the responsibilities as equally as possible.
It is a promising month for new romance as long as you’re willing to go where life leads and have some fun. The Sun is in Aquarius and the part of your chart that rules love affairs until the 18th and Valentines weekend looks especially lively for love. If you’re looking for love, ask a friend for an introduction or perhaps you and someone you’ve known for a long time look at each other in a new light. It is Valentine’s Day after all and one of the most romantic days of the year.
The weekend of the 15th/16th is also a blast for a social get-together or party and a fantastic weekend to work on your own creativity or get together with other people to explore your talents and skills. If you’re a parent, spend quality time with your kids and pencil in some fun entertainment for this weekend.
The reason why you need to be willing to go where life leads is because Mercury turns retrograde this month and is on go slow from the 6th to the 28th. Mercury moves backwards into Aquarius and your romance sector on the 13th so be patient when it comes to love and don’t feel that you have to rush into things. In fact, you may find that new information comes to light once Mercury turns direct on the 28th and what you discover could change your mind.
Work is another area where you may have to be patient due to Mercury retrograde as even though Mercury starts the month in Pisces and your work sector, on the 6th it turns retrograde and on the 13th it leaves Pisces and only re-enters this part of your chart on March 17th. This may play out as having to wait to hear about a job, find that you take one step forward only to take two steps back or you have to constantly reinvent yourself and come up with new ideas. Things don’t feel solid on the work front this month so don’t believe everything you hear and if someone promises you the earth, wait a few weeks and see whether they’re going to deliver.
This may affect you financially if funds are tight and some of you will be looking where in life you can cut back or make your money go further. If this is you, know that things will get better for you but right now, you’re wise to conserve your cash rather than spend it wildly.
Where you will find cash luck is via your home or family so notice what takes place on or around the 25th when Venus and Saturn align beautifully in the heavens. Saturn is currently in your personal money sector. If you want to ask family for a loan, get involved in a family business or find ways to make money via your home through renting out a room or down-sizing, this is a good date to start making progress.
The following day on the 26th Jupiter in Cancer and your career sector clashes with Uranus in Aries and your relationship sector. This is a repeat of an aspect that took place on August 21 2013 so look back to that date to see what was happening then.
This may be about a partner’s change of job or your own freelance business and the key to understand Jupiter and Uranus aspects is that both planets crave freedom and space. You may decide to give up your own job to follow the one you love or perhaps you’re ready to try something different, go freelance or explore work on the internet. Doing things differently and even embracing the weird career-wise can work magically for you. One way or another, there’s likely to be some surprising news as the month comes to an end that necessitates a new way of looking at the world.
