You start the new month on the back of an important Lunar Eclipse on January 31st, which cut across the Leo/Aquarius axis of the zodiac. This highlighted your relationships, both personal and professional.
Eclipses often have a shadowy or hidden theme. If you think about eclipse symbolism, the light goes out temporarily leaving you in the dark. When the light switch flicks back on, you see things differently and you’re presented with a new landscape.
When eclipses light up your star sign, Aquarius, and your opposite star sign, Leo, more often than not this is about a shift in power, or someone leaving your life or someone new entering your life. It’s often about people, in other words.
What’s important moving in to February is that this is your time and you are, in fact, in a strong position. The Sun (identity) is in your star sign Aquarius until the 18th and this is your birthday month, ideal for celebration.
Plus, Mercury (communication) is here, also until the 18th and Venus (relating) completes a trio of planets in Aquarius, where it remains until the 10th. So you have the love planet on your side, Venus, and the first two weeks of the month are ideal for discussion, debate and negotiation.
If you want or need to talk about yourself more than usual, go for it. If you find you want other people’s advice on your relationship situation, the same applies. Talk and ponder, reflect and listen.
You may be in a situation where it’s particularly important to focus on yourself and what you want and need moving forwards. When planets are in your star sign, this highlights your personal goals and aims, your image and profile and how the world sees you.
It’s time to look at yourself and whether you’re being true to who you are. Notice whether your identity is caught up with your work or career and whether that needs to shift. If you think you’d benefit from personal development work, this would be an excellent time to look at yourself more closely.
This is also because the emphasis on your star sign is building towards the big event in February, a Solar Eclipse in Aquarius. This takes place on the 15th and is part of the Leo/Aquarius eclipse cycle which began in August 2016 and completes in January 2019.
What’s extraordinary about this eclipse, however, is that it’s the only Solar Eclipse in Aquarius during the whole eclipse cycle. So this could turn out to be a definitive moment, a significant time of change.
A Solar Eclipse is effectively a turbo-powered New Moon, a chance to put yourself first, take advantage of new opportunities and begin a new chapter. Admittedly, eclipse symbolism often necessitates that something needs to end or be released before you can move on. It may coincide with a change of attitude or a new personal goal or life path that opens up.
Traditionally, you’re wise to wait a few days after an eclipse before making a big decision. This time around, however, you have strong emphasis on your star sign and you may be ready to take action on the 17th. This could be the start of something big that’s going to revolutionise your life.
It’s not all about you this month, because action planet Mars is in Sagittarius and your friends and group sector. This is where life looks lively and there’s plenty going on. Mars rules drive and ambition, so you might be in with an exciting set of people or be ready to team up with others to unleash your ideas on the world.
Admittedly, Mars rules anger and impulsive behaviour so be wary of who you get involved with in the month ahead. You’ll love being around people who are spontaneous and adventurous now, but take care this doesn’t flip into bad behaviour.
Plus, it’s important that you don’t allow other people to sway what you want to do. Other people might give you bad advice this month or advise you to do the opposite of what you need. This is particularly evident around the 17th, when it’s important to stand your ground and speak up for yourself.
Money too is an important factor as the month continues, in particular from mid-month onwards. This is because the faster-moving planets begin to move into Pisces and your money sector from the 10th.
Venus is the first to change star sign on this date and Venus in Pisces can feel indulgent, a time when you want to treat yourself and others. Love and money are closely linked too. Venus is followed by the Sun, your partner planet, and Mercury, the talk planet, on the 18th.
So you may be negotiating financial matters, perhaps because of the changes that have taken place during the eclipse period. It is important to keep close tabs on your money and not let cash slip through your fingers.
Money could be an emotional issue for you now or perhaps you don’t want to deal with finances and would rather pass over the reins to someone else. This would be a bad idea, however, because Neptune is also strong.
Going with the flow and trusting and having faith that things will work out is one thing, but Neptune can flag up a period when you’re fooled, seduced or deluded around money. Keep your clever brain engaged and don’t detach entirely from financial matters, even if you recognise that your values are shifting and changing.
As the month of February begins, the emphasis is on rest and retreat. This is because you have three of the personal planets moving through Aquarius and the most hidden sector of your horoscope. This includes the Sun (identity), Mercury (mind/communication) and Venus (relating).
There may be a good reason why you have to slow down the pace, perhaps due to a health issue or the end of a job or work contract. Certainly, when you have a trio of planets in Aquarius, this is time for reflection and contemplation, rather than being actively out in the world.
You might be feeling physically weak or sense that your body needs more time to rest and be quiet for a while. The focus is on your inner world and being still so you can access your natural intuition. Catch up on your sleep and listen to your dreams. Being a Sun Pisces, your dream world can be a rich resource of insight and wisdom.
There is another reason why it’s important to slow down and take the pace slow. This is because of the major planetary event this month which is a Solar Eclipse on the 15th in this same sector of your horoscope.
A Solar Eclipse is effectively a turbo-powered New Moon, a symbol of new beginnings and the start of a new chapter. When you have a Solar Eclipse in the most hidden sector of your horoscope, it’s important to look at what you need to let go of or what needs to be released.
Also, if you’re charging ahead at full speed and you’re not moving forward mindfully through life, this eclipse could trip you up. Pay attention to what’s going on within you and don’t ignore or avoid any stirrings or deeper feelings.
This is particularly important for you because action planet Mars is now in Sagittarius and the most visible sector of your horoscope. Sagittarius is about being in the public eye and it rules your career and vocation, your status and reputation.
Mars is ambitious and driven but if you have too much going on in your life and you’re playing catch up, this won’t help your stress levels. Invariably, this is when life steps in to slow you down. Even if you work hard and play hard this month, also find time for relaxation. This is vital if you’re to have a successful month.
Admittedly, you may be more than ready to try and get ahead especially if you sense that you can achieve a lot with some extra effort. If you think back to 2015, 2016 and 2017, this is when you had Saturn, the taskmaster of the heavens, in Sagittarius and your career sector.
This slows you right down because Saturn represents limits and obstacles or, at the very least, you have to work hard to reap your rewards. You may feel you’re off the reins now and want to make the most of new career opportunities. Also, it’s important to note that in November 2018, your traditional ruling planet Jupiter enters Sagittarius for the first time in 12 years.
Jupiter will be strong in its sign of rulership throughout 2019 and this is when your career really takes off and you can fly high. Think of events this month as sowing the seeds for what’s to come. Ensure you’re running in the right direction and, if necessary, reorient your compass and fast.
Your confidence will be on the increase as the month progresses, so don’t worry if you’re feeling insecure or fear takes hold early in February. Once the Sun and Mercury move into your star sign Pisces on the 18th, this is when you can start to put yourself first and feel more comfortable out in the wide world.
This is the start of your birthday season and an excellent time to celebrate and have fun. It’s important to focus on your personal goals and aims and talk and think about what next. The more you’re excited about the future, the more of a confidence boost you receive and so it goes on in a positive cycle.
You’re back in flow from mid-month onwards with both Jupiter, your traditional ruler, and Neptune, your modern ruler, on your side. This is when it’s important to spend time visualising what next and utilise your creative and spiritual source to good effect.
As a Sun Pisces, you’re at your best when you feel inspired and enthused about life. You have a romantic soul so you need to seek out interests and activities that lie beyond the every day. When life becomes humdrum or mundane, your spirit fades.
Then it’s essential you recharge your batteries and replenish your soul in whichever way you choose. Do what works for you. Events around the 25th of the month may point the way forward.
The flip side of Neptune is confusion or delusion. Your star sign Pisces is strong, however, so channel your creative and romantic nature into worthwhile activities. Seek out meaning and purpose and lose yourself in a good way.
Finally, this is an interesting month when it comes to love. At the start of February, Venus in Aquarius can indicate unrequited feelings or a love affair you need to keep private. This changes entirely, however, on the 10th, when Venus moves into Pisces.
This is your time of year when you have the love planet in your star sign, just in time for Valentines Day. So make the most of this and know that when you look good, you feel good too. Venus adds the attraction factor to your personality so flirt and be seductive, especially if you’re looking for love or you want to spice up your love life.
The most romantic day of the year for you is often when Venus and Neptune, higher octaves of one another, come together in your star sign Pisces. This year, that event happens on the 21st. Make the most of this gorgeous alignment and give in to romance.
Your sense of adventure is on the increase as your ruling planet Mars charges through your fellow fire sign Sagittarius throughout February. Mars rules drive, action and strength; Sagittarius is the explorer of the zodiac willing to push back the boundaries of life and seek out knowledge, learning and new experiences.
This can be about travel and booking a holiday, study and signing up for a course, discovering a new activity that gives your life meaning and purpose or finding out more about philosophy, spirituality and the metaphysical realm.
Mars is raring to go in Sagittarius, fearless and bold. You want to grab life by the reins and charge off at great speed in a new direction. There’s a reckless quality to Mars but also the sense that nothing ventured, nothing gained. You’re a dynamic individual at heart and, right now, there’s no place for fear, doubt or staying within your comfort zone.
Mars almost gets a free run throughout Sagittarius apart from one questioning square aspect to Neptune on the 17th. If there are going to be times this month when you feel unsure about what you’re doing or where you’re heading, this is one of them.
You’re a physical person at heart but also explore your inner world. If you want to bring about positive change in your life, it often starts from the inside out. Mars’ clash with Neptune coincides with two of the personal planets, the Sun (identity) and Mercury (communication) moving into Pisces and the most hidden sector of your chart on the 18th.
This could slow you down or perhaps it’s a sign to look out for coincidences and synchronicity in your life. Listen carefully to your inner voice and the universe, which is always talking to you once you learn how to tune in.
When key planets are in Pisces, this indicates a time of preparation for you, when you’re getting ready for a new chapter. Your fresh start begins at the equinox on March 20th when the Sun starts a completely new cycle of the zodiac in your star sign Aries.
Do your research, make time for pondering and reflection, as well as looking at where you want to broaden your horizons and take on a new challenge, a new adventure. This transit of Mars through Sagittarius is significant, as you transition from one stage of your life to the next.
This is because in 2015, 2016 and 2017, Saturn, the taskmaster of the heavens, was in Sagittarius. This may have held you back or put obstacles in your way, especially with regard to travel or study. You may have lost faith or spent a lot of time questioning your beliefs.
Saturn has now moved on and later this year, on November 8th 2018, big planet Jupiter moves into Sagittarius, where it remains until almost the end of 2019. This will be your year to travel, study, improve your knowledge or learn at an accelerated rate.
Whatever you want to know about or discover, this will be your opportunity. It could be linked to religion, different cultures, the law, the media, publishing, whatever talks to you personally. Jupiter’s move into Sagittarius may seem a way off but Mars is revving up your interest right now.
You’re flexing new muscles and you can use any conflict of interest as a chance to deal with your own excuses or other people’s fear or doubt. Taking a big leap rarely comes without some level of questioning, either from yourself or others.
Your own role within a group of friends or a social situation is relevant too. This could turn out to be a big month for your involvement with a social, political or humanitarian cause. Your friendship sector is highlighted in the first half of February, a time when you want to be social and join in with other people. Together you’re bigger and better.
This is all leading towards a powerful Solar Eclipse in Aquarius and this same sector of your chart on the 15th. This eclipse is part of the eclipse cycle which began in August 2016 and completes in January 2019. For you, it’s about your creativity and your place within the collective.
There’s only one Solar Eclipse in Aquarius throughout the whole cycle and this is it. A Solar Eclipse is potentially a turbo-powered New Moon when your life accelerates at rapid speed ,thanks to the opportunity, person or event that kicks in.
There is a hidden theme during the eclipse, as if someone switches off the light leaving you momentarily in the dark. When the light comes on, everything looks different and you notice what’s missing, what’s been moved and what’s shifted or changed in your life.
Be particularly observant on the run up to the eclipse so you know where change is likely, especially with regard to your friends and group connections.
You may find that life begins to slow down a little in the second half of the month as key planets in Pisces urge you to be more sensitive and go with the flow, rather than rush. Too much speed, and life may step in to slow you down.
Romance is lively on or around the 7th but here too, there’s a hidden theme or secrets or confidences take priority. You may be unsure of someone else’s feelings for you or perhaps you’re the one who’s ambivalent. Events close to the 21st can reveal more.
Predominantly, however, this is a month to line up a big adventure in your life, whether you’re doing so for later in the year or you’re ready for excitement and new beginnings right now.
Your ruling planet, Venus, is in Aquarius and your career sector until the 10th. There’s no reason to hold back now when it comes to your work or vocation, your status or reputation. This is the time to go for it and focus on your life direction.
With Venus in Aquarius, you have the ability to be objective and take a wide view of your current situation. This isn’t the time to be emotional about work or career matters, instead be smart and use your sound business head to think things through carefully and make strategic decisions.
You also have to create a careful balance between following your own decisions and listening to other people. Big planet Jupiter is currently in your opposite sign of Scorpio, highlighting partnership and bringing inspirational people into your life.
Jupiter clashes with Venus, however, on the 4th, so don’t get carried away with someone else’s ideas or let a third party take over entirely. Instead, proceed steadily rather than allowing someone else to rush in and take control.
This is most relevant for a business partnership or work connection, although it could apply to your personal life as well. Mars is your partner planet and is currently powering through fire sign Sagittarius.
Mars in Sagittarius is an enthusiastic combination and an indication that you have to keep a healthy balance in your 1-to-1’s. Allow yourself to be fired up if it benefits you but don’t follow someone else’s goals or dreams above your own. More likely than not, this will lead to disillusionment and the same can be said for comparing yourself unfavourably to others.
Where the real gold lies this month is in getting clear about where you’re heading and why. You need a strategy while not only Venus is in Aquarius and your career sector, but the Sun (identity) and Mercury (communication) are here as well.
In fact, this is leading up to the most important date of the month, the 15th, when there’s a Solar Eclipse in Aquarius and your career and vocation sector. This is part of an eclipse cycle which began in August 2016 and lasts until January 2019.
What’s important about this eclipse is that it’s the only Solar Eclipse in Aquarius throughout the whole eclipse cycle. Solar Eclipses are turbo-powered New Moons and a chance to start over, to accelerate your progress, possibly at great speed.
There is a hidden theme, however, during the eclipse. Everything goes dark momentarily, as if the lights have been switched off. When they come back on, things look different, like one of those party games where people move around and you need to be observant and take note of what’s changed.
This is important because eclipses often suggest that one person leaves and another person takes their place. Sometimes you can take advantage of the changes that occur and step in to a vacant role or new position.
Traditionally, it’s wise not to make any final decision on the eclipse itself. Instead, look out for new opportunities emerging. Use the New Moon energy of the eclipse to put yourself forward, to pursue your career goals. Technology too is part of the picture as Aquarius rules all things New Age and modern.
In many respects, this month feels like it’s split in two parts with the eclipse dominating the middle section. On the 10th, your ruler Venus leaves Aquarius and moves into Pisces and your friends and group sector.
This means that networking is key to your success, and fun and friendship take priority. Make time for socialising and don’t only focus on work. Alternatively, if you’re extra busy over the first two weeks with work or career matters, then slow things down so you can find time for your social life. Either that, or line up key individuals who can help with your career goals or a vocational project and make your life easier in the process.
There’s potentially a romantic flavour to the second half of February, especially when Venus teams up with Neptune on the 21st. Neptune rules romance and Venus love, so this is an alluring and seductive combination.
There’s a fantasy feel to your love life, or at least it’s not steeped in reality. This can prove fun if you’re willing to give in to your sensual nature and indulgence. Venus and Mars do clash on the 25th so ensure you’re not completely seduced or fooled by someone close.
You’re a savvy earth sign so tap into your natural instincts and suss out who’s worthy of your attention and who’s not. The plus side of the Pisces influence in the second half of the month is that it’s great for creative or artistic get-togethers, whether you’re enjoying the music or making the art.
One other factor to note is action planet Mars charging through Sagittarius and your joint finance sector. This means you can make great strides in this area of your life if you’re willing to take risks. The one date when it’s not advised to leap into action is the 17th when Mars clashes with Neptune. Again, this feels seductive as if you’ve not got your wits about you.
Having said that, there is great potential this month for you to do well financially. Perhaps a new opportunity emerges with regard to your work or career which boosts your income. That’s the best case scenario, but do be ready for some major shifts in your life direction once the eclipse kicks in.
Your ruling planet, Mercury, is in air sign Aquarius until the 18th. This is a strong placing for Mercury as it lines up nicely with your sign of Gemini. Your ideas and your ability to express those ideas are in flow.
Aquarius rules the bigger picture of life in your horoscope, whether this means travel, study, philosophy, religion or spirituality. Essentially, it’s wherever you find meaning or purpose in your life and it’s an ideal month to broaden your horizons any way you see fit.
Mercury isn’t the only planet in Aquarius as February begins The Sun (identity) is here until the 18th and Venus, the planet of relating, until the 10th. You might be talking about exciting plans with friends or your partner. The 3rd and 15th are excellent dates to line up a new adventure, whether for this month or later in the year.
This planetary activity is all building towards the month’s most remarkable planetary event which is a Solar Eclipse in Aquarius on the 15th. This is part of an eclipse cycle cutting across the travel, education and communication sectors of your horoscope. The cycle began in August 2016 and lasts until January 2019.
There is, however, only one Solar Eclipse in Aquarius and these sectors of your chart during the whole eclipse cycle and this is it. So make the most of this Solar Eclipse, which is potentially a turbo-powered New Moon, a symbol of new beginnings and new opportunities.
Admittedly, you may want to put off travelling on the day of the eclipse itself, because there’s often a hidden or shadowy theme during an eclipse. If you think of eclipse symbolism, it’s as if someone switches off the light momentarily. When the light switch flicks back on, you’re looking at a new vista, and the landscape has changed.
Traditionally you’re wise to wait a few days after an eclipse, perhaps even a week before making any major decisions, especially related to travel or study. This allows anything that’s been hidden to emerge and you can see the full story. Do look out for new opportunities and where or how you can take advantage of change.
In your horoscope, Aquarius also rules the law, publishing, the media, religion and your beliefs. It’s the wider scope of life, your ability to visualise, to dream and line up big goals. This feels like a particularly important eclipse for you because your ruler Mercury sits next to the Sun and Moon on the 15th and the Sun and Mercury connect in Aquarius on the 17th. Listen out for news or up-to-date information that can help you get ahead.
This is also important because of the other star sign which dominates this month’s astrology, Pisces. Pisces is at the peak of your horoscope ruling your career and vocation, your status and reputation. It’s about your future, where you’re heading in life and why.
On the 18th, both the Sun and Mercury move into this sector of your horoscope, working as a team. Venus is already here as she entered Pisces on the 10th, so look out for new connections and people who can help you achieve your long-term goals.
The other important planet in Pisces is Neptune and this is a long-term transit to take into account. Neptune moved into Pisces in 2011 and it remains here for many years until 2025. So it’s important to know what Neptune represents and work with its positive qualities.
This is the planet of compassion and empathy, ideal for the caring professions or philanthropic causes. It’s related to the romantic side of life, including music, poetry, art or any aspect of life that inspires you and takes you beyond the every day, ideal for an artistic or creative career.
Neptune is a boundless planet so you may end up with too many options in front of you and find it hard to focus but, at its best, Neptune lends you vision and inspiration. This is the planet linked to images and the imagination.
Neptune is prominent on the 21st and 25th in your horoscope, dates when you’re wise to tap into Neptune’s strengths. It’s important to note, however, that Neptune can lend itself to daydreaming or confusion. Instead of being in flow, you go round in circles and ultimately lose your way.
Be aware of this and take care you don’t allow yourself to be seduced or fooled by a third party. This is particularly important close to the 17th when Mars in Sagittarius and your relationship sector clashes with Neptune. Keep your wits about you and engage your logical brain to know who to trust and who to avoid.
Mars in Sagittarius promises a passionate month for love and relationships, although perhaps more arguments or fall-outs too. Yet there’s energy here and it’s a great month for pursuing 1-to-1’s, both personal and professional.
Seek out adventurous individuals and allow yourself to get swept along in their excitement. If you’ve been single for a while but would like to be in a relationship, this is an excellent month to breathe life and energy into your intimate connections.
This is particularly important because later this year, in November 2018, big planet Jupiter moves into Sagittarius where it remains until late 2019. This is the start of an exciting and expansive chapter for love and events now can be the trigger which takes you one step closer to finding fulfilment in love.
Ultimately, however, this month is about you and doing whatever you need to get on track with your career and vocation. Keep other people at bay if they try and take control and save the majority of your energy and effort for your long-term goals.
It’s wise to turn your attention towards money and your financial situation as soon as the month begins. You may already be aware that it’s in this area of your life where change is afoot and the more you’re on top of your current situation, the better.
As February begins, you’re inbetween two important eclipses highlighting the financial axis of your horoscope. The Full Moon or Lunar Eclipse took place on January 31st and this month there’s a Solar Eclipse on the 15th.
These two eclipses are part of an eclipse cycle which began in August 2016 and completes in January 2019. It lights up the Leo/Aquarius of the zodiac and this is about your money, possessions and self-worth. Usually your situation or perspective changes, sometimes dramatically, during each eclipse cycle.
Some ways this may play out for you are upsizing or downsizing, decluttering or adding to a collection, a big loss or a big win financially. This may coincide with a significant change to your life situation, which is the reason why you need to reassess your money, income and outgoings.
As February begins, there are three planets in Aquarius and your joint finance sector and this is where the action’s at in the month ahead. This means you can’t make decisions about your own finances without involving someone else. Plus, money and emotions are closely linked.
Love planet Venus is in Aquarius until the 10th and both the Sun (identity) and Mercury (communication) remain in Aquarius until the 18th. Do what you can early in the month to line up important meetings which help you get clear about your financial situation. Turn to other people for advice or support and don’t feel you have to go it alone.
One area of life that is strong for you now is your work and career. Action planet Mars is in Sagittarius and your work sector throughout February and this gives you extra drive and ambition to work hard and reap your rewards.
If you’re caught up in any kind of financial tie or bind, detach yourself emotionally if you can and focus your energy instead on work and earnings. You have innovative Uranus in Aries and your career sector and Uranus is in a good connection to the planets in Aquarius. The 7th, 14th and 15th could prove useful in this respect.
It’s the 15th, however, that’s most dynamic for you as the Solar Eclipse brings a fresh start or a new chapter to finances. There is, however, a hidden theme to eclipses. If you think of the symbolism, it’s as if the lights switch off momentarily and you’re in the dark. When the lights flick back on the situation has changed and, at its best, you can take advantage of what’s new.
Look out for opportunities that come your way close to the eclipse or perhaps an important event that is vital for you to know where you stand financially. Traditionally, you’re wise to wait a few days or even a week after an eclipse before making any final decision or taking action.
Be ready and prepared for what may open up in the middle of the month. Be objective about money matters too and don’t hand over the reins of your finances to someone else. There’s a chance you may fall prey to seduction or be ripped off if you’re not aware of what’s going on.
Aquarius rules all kind of joint financial transactions, such as mortgages, savings and debt, inheritance, alimony, child support, etc. Aquarius is also the star sign most closely linked to technology and all things modern. You might be looking at new ways of earning money or new ways of trading.
Ensure that your skills are up-to-date and you’re on top of new trends or techniques that can boost your situation. Sometimes when key planets are in Aquarius, you’re dealing with taboo matters, issues you wouldn’t normally wish to explore or talk about.
You’re not advised to play by the book or stick to the rules now, instead you’re pushing back the boundaries and looking for original and innovative ways to lead a more unconventional life. Anything goes as you throw away the rule book.
This month is also a time to allow yourself to dream and line up some new adventures. Explore life to the full. This is because the personal planets begin to move into Pisces and your fellow water sign from mid-month onwards.
Venus moves here on the 10th, followed by Mercury and the Sun on the 18th. You want to explore new options and you’re wise to expand your horizons in some shape or form. Pisces rules travel and study in your horoscope. It’s linked to a romantic perspective, whether you’re into music, art, poetry or any activity that gives your life meaning and purpose.
You may be more than ready to get away in the second half of the month and go somewhere new, to gain a fresh perspective on your life. Travel and romance come together, especially near the 21st when love planet Venus teams up with Neptune.
There’s a dreamy quality to this combination and it’s a strong month to line up some new experiences for you and a partner. Move away from the humdrum, the everyday and actively seek out adventure.
There may be times when your daydreaming takes over and you find it hard to deal with the stresses of daily life. The middle of the month could be most challenging in this respect when action planet Mars clashes with Neptune on the 17th. If you’re disillusioned with your routine or lifestyle, this could be an unsettling period for you.
Ideally, with Pisces strong in February, use this astrological phase to bring more inspiration into your world, whether you follow a spiritual path, you travel and immerse yourself in new cultures or you channel your creative imagination into learning and knowledge.
The focus as February begins is firmly on the sign of Aquarius, ruling your 1-to-1’s, both personal and professional. You may already be aware that this area of your life is changing, thanks to the Lunar Eclipse in your star sign Leo on January 31st.
You may have made a recent decision about a significant partnership in your life or perhaps your hand has been forced. Either way, you can’t avoid dealing with relationships and you may find that other people won’t let you either.
As February begins, your ruler, the Sun, is in Aquarius until the 18th along with Mercury, the planet of communication. Plus, love planet Venus is also in Aquarius until the 10th. This is a lively picture which promises much happiness on the one hand and plenty of chance to talk about love, partnership and relationships in general.
For some particular reason, an intimate relationship or business partnership is big news and there’s lots to discuss. If you’re in a relationship or married, this might include children or news of a pregnancy. Action planet Mars is in your fellow fire sign Sagittarius throughout February and Sagittarius rules children in your horoscope.
This is also a strong combination for new love and a budding romance. Mars rules the libido and Sagittarius rules love affairs. This is a passionate pairing and perhaps there’s more than one person in your life with so much emphasis on the love and romance sectors of your horoscope.
Certainly, it’s wise to decide where your interests lie before the Solar Eclipse on the 15th. This Solar Eclipse takes place in Aquarius, your relationship sector. As it falls so close to Valentines Day on the 14th, this flags up an important time for your 1-to-1’s.
A Solar Eclipse is a turbo-powered New Moon, when the events of your life tend to speed up and everything feels more dramatic and intensified. The Solar Eclipse theme is about new beginnings and making a fresh start. Look out for someone new entering your life mid-month or an opportunity to take advantage of a shifting situation.
What it’s important to remember about eclipses is they are shadowy and often represent a hidden theme. If you think about the symbolism of an eclipse, the light goes out momentarily and all goes dark. When the light switches back on, you see things in a new way or the balance of power has shifted.
This is why traditionally it’s not wise to make a major decision on the eclipse itself. Admittedly, this is often the date when big events happen but if you can wait a few days or even a week after an eclipse, this is advisable. Then you see the whole picture and can move forward with confidence.
From mid-month onwards, the personal planets begin to move into the water sign Pisces. The first planet to change star sign is Venus on the 10th, followed by your ruler, the Sun, and talk planet Mercury on the 18th.
Pisces rules joint finances and shared resources in your horoscope and this is the time to turn your attention towards money matters. This might be linked to what’s happening in a personal or professional partnership and dealing with practical matters together.
You may be negotiating a financial deal or talking about any number of money-related transactions. Pisces rules all forms of money in your horoscope and this includes savings and debts, mortgages, tax, inheritance, wins and losses, etc.
The other important planet to note in Pisces is Neptune, Pisces’ ruler. Neptune at its best is inspirational, hopeful and a boundless influence. If your earnings soar, you may be looking at ways to best use your money, perhaps in a charitable or philanthropic cause.
It is vital to remember, however, that there’s a flip side to Neptune which can bring disillusionment or a loss of control. This is not the time to let money slip through your fingers or be seduced or charmed out of your cash. Be savvy around money and be clear what’s fact and what’s fantasy.
Home, family or property matters may be one area of life that currently is proving expensive. It’s a good idea to rein in your expenses close to the 17th when Mars in Sagittarius clashes with Neptune. Be too free and easy with your money and you may not see the returns you hoped for.
The real trick this month is to be able to discern between the sound money investments and the dodgy money investments. Plus, with Saturn strong in Capricorn, when in doubt, your best bet is to return to what you know and what you do well.
Saturn in Capricorn is about your work and routine and either having a steady job or taking the slow and steady approach to financial security. Explore your options during the last half of February and wait until early March before deciding what next.
This is when you not only have luck on your side but a powerful Full Moon cuts across the financial axis of your horoscope and this can bring clarity to your situation.
This month, there are too many variables to make a sound decision. You can do well now but it will take a huge amount of trust and faith on your part to remain open to limitless abundance. That and a red-hot natural intuition.
Your ruling planet Mercury has started its journey through Aquarius, the star sign which rules your work and routine, your lifestyle and health, as February gets underway. You may remember from last month’s horoscope that Mercury changed star sign on the last day of January, the same day as the Lunar Eclipse cutting across the Leo/Aquarius axis of the zodiac.
Eclipses often change your situation in some way as life feels intensified and events speed up. You may already know what this is about for you and where you’re having to think on your feet. This is by no means the end of the story. In fact, this is a good time to ensure you’re fully informed about your current job or work situation and/or your health.
Mercury isn’t alone in Aquarius as February begins. The Sun is here until the 18th, the same day as Mercury, and the planet of relating, Venus, is in Aquarius until the 10th. This feels collaborative, as if you can work alongside other people to get more done, achieve more and get better results.
Aquarius rules technology and all things new and modern. Bear this in mind if you want to get up-to-date dietary or health advice or you’re considering new work options. If you’re aware that you’re behind the times with regard to social media or online work opportunities, this is where to focus your attention.
It’s important to be in the know, to explore all your options and arrange any significant meetings or interviews before the 15th. This is the date of the Solar Eclipse in Aquarius, part of the Leo/Aquarius eclipse cycle which began in August 2016 and completes in January 2019.
Solar Eclipses are turbo-powered New Moons, i.e. they often coincide with a fresh start or a new chapter. What’s interesting about this Solar Eclipse is it’s the only one in Aquarius during this whole eclipse cycle. Which means it could bring a significant turning point with regard to your work and routine, your lifestyle or health.
Being a Virgo, you are often health conscious and you like to be well-informed about your diet, body and fitness. Whatever your current health situation, the Solar Eclipse brings matters to a head and sets you on a new path.
What’s important to remember with the eclipses is that they have a shadowy or hidden theme. If you think about eclipse symbolism, the light goes out momentarily leaving you in the dark. When the light switch is flicked back on, you experience new insight or find the landscape has changed.
Bear this in mind and see where or how you can take advantage of a changing scenario, whether new information comes to light or one door closes allowing a new door to open. Traditionally, you’re wise to wait a few days after an eclipse before making a major decision or taking action.
The other major theme of your month ahead is love and relationships, thanks to a strong influence in your opposite sign of Pisces. Most importantly, love planet Venus moves into Pisces on the 10th where it remains until the end of the month. You are the star sign who has the love planet in your relationship sector during Valentines Day, February 14th, so make the most of it.
The most romantic day of the month, however, is likely to be the 21st when Venus and Neptune come together in the heavens. Neptune is linked to romance and it’s currently spending many years in your relationship sector. The times when it connects with key planets in your horoscope often prove significant.
Both your ruler, Mercury, and the Sun join Venus in Pisces on the 18th. If you’re in a relationship or married, this is a good time to prioritise your love life and do something special with the one you love. If you’re looking for love, make the most of Venus boosting your chances and ask for introductions or be more flirtatious when you’re out socially.
Of course, it’s not going to be happy-ever-after for all Virgo individuals and it’s important to realise that there’s a flip side to Neptune. Neptune is the total opposite of your precise Virgo nature. Earth signs like yourself want to deal with reality and the facts, whereas Neptune rules fantasy.
Falling in love is often hard to understand logically. Instead, you fall head-over-heels in love and lose yourself in a romantic haze. Just make sure that you keep a firm anchor on solid ground and you don’t get completely carried away. Engage your earth sign common sense and don’t allow yourself to be seduced or deluded. This can also be Neptune’s way if you give in to the illusion.
This is important to remember with regard to other significant 1-to-1’s in your life, whether this is a business partner or a financial adviser, for example. Don’t give over control to someone else completely. Even if one particular individual is absolutely charming, ensure you keep a tight hold on the facts and are well-informed before making any key decisions.
This could also be an exciting month for home and family matters. This is because action planet Mars is in Sagittarius at the base of your horoscope. Events could unfurl rapidly in these areas of your life as Mars is speedy. Note too, however, that Mars rules anger and is impulsive so this could bring more arguments, more noise and stress.
The most confusing time for home and family affairs is around the middle of the month when Mars clashes with Neptune. This is when people close to you may not see eye-to-eye or perhaps you’re dealing with builders or estate agents who are slippery and hard to handle. Do what you do best and keep close tabs on what’s happening and read through the small print of important documents.
At its best, however, this month is a time to boost your energy and fitness levels and line up a new job or everyday activity that’s worthwhile and interesting. Indulge your romantic nature too. It’s sometimes hidden but is never far below the surface.
As February begins, your ruling planet, Venus, is in Aquarius and the most creative and romantic sector of your horoscope. Venus remains here until the 10th so make the most of Venus’ fun-loving potential in one of the most social star signs, Aquarius.
The 4th to the 7th looks particularly engaging when the Moon is in your star sign Libra and Venus teams up with expansive Jupiter and crazy Uranus. This is the time to shine socially, take centre stage or show off your skills and talents. When you have key planets in Aquarius, you can express yourself and be true to who you are.
Two other personal planets are in Aquarius and they are the Sun (identity) and Mercury (communication). Both planets are in Aquarius until the 18th. This is where the action’s at in the first half of February.
Aquarius rules all the good things in your life and whatever you ‘give birth’ to, whether this is a child, a creative project or a big social event. Get your event manager hat on and line up some fun entertainment for you and the ones you love.
The only word of caution is around money. Yes, you have abundant Jupiter now in Scorpio and your personal money sector where it remains until November 2018. Jupiter, however, clashes with the personal planets in Aquarius throughout February, so don’t go over the top spending this month. It’s a time when you will want to treat yourself and others, but being overly extravagant isn’t wise so rein it in.
The planets in Aquarius are building towards the major event in February, a stunning Solar Eclipse in Aquarius on the 15th. A Solar Eclipse is a turbo-powered New Moon and represents new beginnings, a fresh start.
This could be a particularly exciting time for you when it comes to love because Aquarius rules romance and love affairs in your horoscope. As the Solar Eclipse falls the day after Valentines Day, you may have an exceptionally dramatic love life this year.
Look out for new people coming into your life too. This is significant because action planet Mars is now in Sagittarius and your communication sector.
Mars is your partner planet and rules the libido. Sagittarius represents your local community, places close to home and is ideal for making new friends and meeting new people. Someone may charge into your life this month and take you by surprise.
Remember that eclipse symbolism often brings the unexpected. During an eclipse, the light switches off momentarily leaving you in the dark and when the light switch flicks back on, things look different. You’re faced with a new landscape, new people perhaps or a new attitude or way of thinking.
The Solar Eclipse could speed up your love life dramatically but as Mars is square to Neptune on the 17th two days later, everything is not as it seems. This backs up the shadowy theme so don’t lose yourself completely in a fantasy world and use your clever brain to keep a firm hold on reality.
There may be a theme of lies or secrets mid-month and you need to wait and see who’s telling the truth and who isn’t. This might include yourself, so notice if you’re saying one thing but you mean another. As a Sun Libra, you don’t like to hurt people which is why you sometimes fudge the truth.
Work is under the cosmic umbrella throughout the second half of February. In fact, you may start paying closer to attention to your work and routine, your lifestyle and health from the 10th onwards. This is the date when your ruler Venus moves into Pisces highlighting these areas of your life.
It may be hard to drag yourself away from play or fun and focus on work matters, but it’s essential you do so. The Sun and Mercury join Venus in Pisces on the 18th and there’s strong planetary activity in this sector of your chart.
The other planet in Pisces is Neptune and this planet is here to stay for many years yet. Neptune is creative and artistic, compassionate and sensitive, so finding a job that fulfils you is the ideal scenario. This taps into your Libra strengths.
Neptune does have a flip side, however, as it’s also the planet of fantasy and illusion. You want to go with the flow when it comes to your work and lifestyle but if you’re too laid-back or easy-going, you may find opportunities slip away from you.
Also, when Neptune’s strong, you can feel confused about your situation and can’t make sense of what’s happening or find a clear sense of direction. Neptune kicks in this month on the 21st and 25th and this is when you may experience some sense of disillusionment.
With Mars strong in Sagittarius, learning and education are vital and this is where to put your energy and focus. Keep moving forwards and use your network and connections to help you find a job or make sense of your current work situation. Talk, communicate, open up.
At its best, you will feel a sense of flow around your working life and can trust what’s happening with your body and health. Tune in to your natural intuition. Listen to where life is calling you and where guidance is available.
Your ruling planet Mars is now storming through fire sign, Sagittarius, ruling your money, your possessions and your self-worth. This is an excellent month to focus on finances and to put energy into spending money or earning money, whichever is most relevant for you.
There is a speculative nature to Mars in Sagittarius and you may find you’re more willing to take risks or invest your money. Adventure and knowledge are linked to Sagittarius so this would be an excellent month to start a savings plan if you want to travel or commit to a course of study.
Mars has a relatively free run through Sagittarius this month apart from a potential conflict with the planet Neptune on the 17th. This muddies the waters and it isn’t a good date to spend, invest or gamble. Neptune is linked to illusion. Sometimes what you think is a good deal turns out not to be. Don’t allow yourself to be lead astray, fooled or seduced mid-month.
Otherwise, you’re wise to focus on money and, in particular, work out where your values lie. What’s of most importance to you right now in your life? Is it what you own, is it what you experience? Get clear about your priorities.
It’s also an excellent month to look at your pricing if you offer a service or product or consider whether you’re being paid what you’re worth, whatever your profession. This will become more important next month when you can implement what you learn this month.
Seeds that are sown now can prove fruitful later this year or even next year and this Mars’ transit may turn out to be more significant than you realise. This is because of what’s been happening in the star sign Sagittarius and your money sector. In 2015, 2016 and 2017, you had the taskmaster of the heavens, Saturn, in Sagittarius. This is often a time of hardship or, at the very least, you need to work hard to reap your rewards.
Saturn has now moved on and, in November 2018, is replaced by big planet Jupiter. Jupiter enters Sagittarius on November 8th and remains here until late 2019. As Jupiter is the planet of abundance, this could be a truly wealthy period in your life.
It may be that the seeds that are sown this month and the decisions you make about saving, spending, earning reap your rewards later in the year and into 2019.
The other star sign that’s pivotal in the first half of February is Aquarius, as the Sun (identity), Mercury (communication) and Venus (relating) are all here as the month begins. Aquarius rules your home and family, your domestic situation. It’s about your past, your roots and where you come from.
It’s likely that you have a lot to discuss in these areas of your life, whether you’re planning to move home or you’re organising a family get-together or celebration. It’s a good month to become more organised at home or implement a new rota or schedule outlining who does what around the house. Aquarius works best when there’s organisation, rules and guidelines.
Note that Mars, your planet, is in Sagittarius, your money sector and Venus, your partner planet, is in Aquarius and your home sector. This suggests that these will be significant areas to discuss or sort out within a relationship. You might be thinking about starting a family, be dealing with the in-laws or be considering building work or a new location.
Plus, the planets are building towards the most important event this month, a Solar Eclipse in Aquarius on the 15th. A Solar Eclipse is a turbo-powered New Moon, a symbol of new beginnings and the start of a new chapter.
However, eclipses have a shadowy or hidden theme. If you think of eclipse symbolism, the lights go out momentarily leaving you in the dark and when the light switch is flicked back on, things look different. You see your situation through new eyes or perhaps you’re somewhere new entirely.
This eclipse is part of an eclipse cycle which began in August 2016 and ends in January 2019. It focuses on your foundations and major changes to your career and life direction, and how this impacts on your home and family.
This is, however, the only Solar Eclipse in Aquarius throughout the whole cycle. This means that events mid-February could be most significant for what’s happening at home and with regard to your roots, your foundations. Wait and see what the eclipse brings in and then embrace change. Move things forward in your life quickly and don’t look back.
Love and romance are part of the planetary picture because Venus enters romantic Pisces on the 10th and is joined by the Sun and Mercury on the 18th. Pisces is a fellow water sign and you may feel more in flow once the personal planets shift star signs.
Pisces not only rules romance but also children and pregnancy, creative projects, entertainment and luck. Neptune’s here too, Pisces’ ruler and the 21st and 25th could prove dreamy and romantic. This may be a stunning period for new love or a creative project.
Take care that you don’t lose yourself entirely in a fantasy world, however, and keep a firm grip on reality. The flip side of Neptune is illusion and seduction so keep your savvy Scorpio wits about you, so you’re not fooled or deluded.
At its best, this is a month when you can move your situation forward at great speed and start to make the changes which will help you create strong foundations in your life. The birth of a child or news of a pregnancy could also bring much joy to you and your family.
Action planet Mars is storming through your star sign Sagittarius in February. This highlights your personal aims, your image and profile. You want to be seen and be out in the world and, whatever your chosen goal, make swift progress.
Mars is a physical planet so this would be a good time to start a fitness plan or get proactive with your health or diet. When planets are in Sagittarius, you’re thinking about your body more than usual. Mars here adds drive and stamina to the mix. This is excellent if you’re training for a marathon or you’re committed to regular exercise.
It’s also time to put yourself first and ensure that the world sees who you really are. You might be starting a campaign of self-promotion, perhaps linked to your business, or want to take on a more active role in world events. Your star sign Sagittarius is linked to truth and justice and you’re a natural freedom fighter.
This could be a significant transit because of what’s been going on in your star sign Sagittarius previously and what’s to come. In 2015, 2016 and 2017, the taskmaster of the heavens, Saturn, was in your star sign. This can bring limitation or obstacles your way and sometimes life’s simply harder than usual.
With Saturn out of the way and Mars in its place, you might be more than ready for a turbo boost of energy or achievement. Also, the really significant event of 2018 for you is the fact that your ruling planet Jupiter returns home to your star sign Sagittarius on November 8th. This takes place for the first time in 12 years and Jupiter remains here throughout 2019.
So get your skates on, decide where you’re heading and line up some big goals. You have a visionary nature and you’re at your best when you have long-term plans and a wide vista in front of you. Jupiter in Sagittarius is adventurous, enthusiastic and optimistic. Have faith that what you start this month will breed and bear fruit, leading to one of your best years for some time in 2019.
There’s excitement in the air too because of a stack of planets in air sign Aquarius. The Sun (identity), Mercury (communication) and Venus (relating) are all in this sector of your horoscope as the month begins.
Aquarius rules communication and ideas, it’s buzzing and lively and this is an excellent time to study, learn something new or gain knowledge. Share your ideas with other people, make new friends and come together within your community to teach and study, offer wisdom and experience.
You may be on a social quest, keen to meet new people and extend your social circle. You might be throwing yourself into social media, so you can gather fans or followers for a project or business idea.
All this planetary activity is building towards the most important event of the month which is the Solar Eclipse in Aquarius on the 15th. A Solar Eclipse is a turbo-powered New Moon, a symbol of new beginnings and the start of a new chapter. This could bring unexpected news, a phone call or email that sets things in motion and catapults you forward at top speed.
There is often, however, a shadowy or hidden theme around eclipses. If you think of eclipse symbolism, the lights go out temporarily leaving you in the dark. When the light switch flicks back on, you see things differently whether your attitude’s changed or you have new facts to deal with.
This eclipse is part of an eclipse cycle which began in August 2016 and lasts until January 2019. It lights up the communication and education sectors of your horoscope. It’s about your beliefs, your interests, what gives you meaning and purpose in life.
Travel may be slightly chaotic during the eclipse period so bear this in mind and, ideally, wait a few days after the eclipse before setting out on a new journey.
One journey you may decide to take this month is back home because the personal planets start to filter into Pisces and your home and family sector from the 10th onwards. Venus is the first planet to move into Pisces on this date, followed by the Sun and Mercury on the 18th.
This can be a sentimental time and you may be taking an emotional journey into your past. Home and family are under the cosmic spotlight and memories will stir deep within you. Alternatively, you could be dealing with practicalities around the house, sorting out the plumbing or building a pond in the garden.
This is because Neptune is Pisces’ ruler, God of the Sea, and Neptune is prominent this month, on the 21st and the 25th. Water and tears are Neptune’s realm and a family reunion or get-together could prove particularly emotional.
This can be a heartfelt time but also potentially destabilising with Neptune in the mix. You may feel as if your foundations are shifting, as if you’re unsure where safety lies. Perhaps you have a clear sense that the past is ebbing away and you need to move on.
Events mid-month, especially around the 17th, could provide clues as to what this means for you. You might be fighting against what’s happening at home or within your family, but eventually you need to go with it on some level. Ensure you do what’s right for you at the same time as acknowledging where you’re from and your debt to the past.
The cosmic spotlight is turned firmly towards the financial axis of your zodiac as February begins. This includes your money situation, your possessions, what you value highly in your life and your level of self worth.
On the last day of January, there was a Lunar Eclipse cutting across the Leo/Aquarius axis of the zodiac highlighting these specific areas of your life. Money may be an emotional issue now or perhaps there’s someone in your life whom you need to take into account when it comes to finances.
This could be a straightforward financial transaction but, more likely than not, it’s a situation you didn’t know about or weren’t aware of. This is because eclipses have a shadowy or hidden theme. If you think of eclipse symbolism, the lights go out momentarily leaving you in the dark. When the light switch flicks back on, you see things differently or change has occurred.
At the start of this month, the Sun (identity), Mercury (communication) and Venus (relating) are all in the star sign Aquarius. So this indicates a busy time for money matters, for discussion and negotiation. Stay on top of your money situation and line up important meetings or interviews.
Be as objective as you can about money and possessions, and step back from any emotional charge. Deal with the facts if you’re in the midst of a challenging time financially. It is important to be as informed as you can about money, whether you’re looking at your own income and outgoings or you’re looking into new ways of making money.
This is where you can productively spend your time early in the month and it’s particularly important because of the major planet event in February. This is the Solar Eclipse that takes place on the 15th, part of the eclipse cycle which began in August 2016 and ends in January 2019.
What’s important about this eclipse is that it’s the only Solar Eclipse in Aquarius and your personal money sector throughout this whole eclipse cycle. A Solar Eclipse is a turbo-powered New Moon, which often brings in new opportunities or starts a new chapter.
Traditionally, you’re not advised to make major decisions on the day of the eclipse itself. Instead, see what occurs close to the eclipse date and wait a few days or a week afterwards before taking action.
This could bring something spectacular your way and certainly it indicates a change in your circumstances or necessitates a change in attitude. Put yourself and your own needs first when it comes to money and with regard to what you’re being paid. It’s an ideal month for a financial review and getting on top of money matters.
There’s a shift in emphasis starting on the 10th as the personal planets begin to move into the water sign Pisces. Venus is the first to change star sign on this date, followed by the Sun and Mercury on the 18th.
Pisces rules communication in your horoscope, it’s about your local community and connections. This is the time to spread your net wide, to extend your social network, share ideas, learn and pass on what you know.
Pisces rules education, learning and knowledge in your horoscope. This may be a case of you wanting to gain new qualifications, study or go back to school. Your ruler Saturn is helpful in this respect as it supports the planets in Pisces on the 15th, 21st and 25th. Long-term plans and goals and new commitments help you to prepare for your future.
Neptune, Pisces’ ruler, is in this same sector of your chart so don’t only consider learning or gaining knowledge for practical reasons. Pisces is romantic and you may want to lose yourself in the realm of the imagination or be inspired by poetry, music, art or film. There’s a dreamy quality to events in the second half of the month so tap into this potentially artistic and creative vibe.
There is a flip side to Neptune, however, which potentially distorts the truth. Neptune is the planet of illusion so be wary of being seduced or fooled by others during this period. It can help you to be persuasive yourself and find an inspirational sales technique. Ensure that this is genuine and sincere though and doesn’t slip into schmaltz. Leave the excessive sentimentality for the creative sphere.
You can’t count out the possibility that the last two weeks of February could be particularly emotional for you. Neptune rules all things watery, including tears, so you may want to express your feelings more than usual and let them go. This might even do you good because sometimes, as a Capricorn, you can be overly reserved or hold your emotions in.
Neptune is strongest on the 21st and 25th of the month, potentially romantic dates for you, especially if you’re connecting with someone new in your life. Valentines Day also takes place in February, on the 14th, but this year, it feels less romantic and more matter-of-fact.
That’s not to say you can’t meet someone new this month if you’re looking for love. In fact, you might meet the right person even if you don’t fall head over heels in love. Sometimes, real life compatibility outweighs romantic expectations.
Finally, action planet Mars is storming through Sagittarius and the most hidden sector of your horoscope. This highlights your inner world, whether your mind is racing ten to the dozen or you’re dealing with inner worries or concerns. Try to slow things down if this is the case and learn to relax or meditate if that would help. Pursuing a spiritual path is one way of activating Mars in this part of your chart.
You may need to care and nurture other people now, whether you’re looking after those in need or reaching out to family. This may include a sibling or someone in a position of care. Sometimes there are themes of sacrifice or surrender playing out when you have a key planet in the sign previous to your own.
