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.
New information may have come to light recently that requires your full attention or perhaps you’re considering a change of direction and letting go of one particular project that no longer serves you. It’s often a time of preparation when planets are in the most hidden sector of your chart and it’s an important time to clear out the old in your life to make room for the new.
Be thorough in your endeavours whether you have a work deadline to meet, you’re involved in research or you’re clearing out cupboards. Wherever in life you’re getting ready to let go, ensure it’s final and that you close the door for good. Mercury remains in Capricorn until the 13th.
Money matters too are linked to the past as Jupiter, the planet of opportunity and growth, is in Virgo and your joint finance sector. When Mercury and Jupiter meet on the 6th, this is about a legacy, an inheritance, a blast from your past. Pay off any debts owed and chase up anyone who owes you money. Get your finances in order ready for new beginnings.
New beginnings come thick and fast this month and the most important date is the 8th when there’s a New Moon in your sign of Aquarius. This means that, on some level at least, you can forget the plans or promises you made last month and start over.
This is the planetary equivalent of your own New Year’s Day. So set your intentions, focus on your personal goals and aims and decide what next for you. This is a powerful month to put new plans in place because not only is there strong emphasis on your own sign of Aquarius but action planet Mars is powerful in Scorpio and your career sector.
This is a big year for you with regard to your work and career and there’s no reason to hold back right now. It’s a go-for-it period in your life and the more ambitious you are and the more you chase after your own career and vocational goals, the more likely your chance of success.
Mars in Scorpio can indicate an extreme situation so perhaps you’re thrown in at the deep end or you have to work hard to prove your prowess or maybe you’re going full steam ahead looking for work. Either way, as long as you manage your stress levels and your time efficiently, you can race forward this month.
Communication planet Mercury also enters your sign of Aquarius on the 13th and this gives you the gift of the gab. It’s a great opportunity to ask for what you want, to share your message, to use communication to good effect.
Yours is a future-oriented sign and modern technology plays an important part in your success. If you want to set up a website, launch a social media page or anything else that’s new and different and sets a trend, jump to it.
Your best dates for making progress are the 3rd-6th and the 25th/26th when first the Sun and secondly Mercury team up with both your ruling planets, Saturn and Uranus. This is brilliant for reaching a lot of people quickly and for making new connections. Look out for a new group, club or association of like-minded people as together you’re bigger and better.
You too can make your mark on others now and if you’re asked to step into a leading role or to present a talk or workshop, make it happen. Don’t let fear hold you back but instead acknowledge your own experience and expertise.
When it comes to love, the second half of the month is livelier than the first and Valentines Day misses your best astrology. This is because love planet Venus is also in your hidden sector up until the 17th. This can indicate a love affair or feelings that remain hidden, your own or another person’s. Nothing is quite what it seems until Venus enters the light after a period of dark.
Mark the 17th in your diary as a turning point for love and relationships. Whether you’re declaring your affections, making your love life public or you simply feel comfortable with what you want when it comes to love, you’re in your element. Venus boosts your attractiveness and your popularity so it’s good news both personally and professionally. If you’re looking for love, get out and about and ask for introductions.
Finally, the Sun enters Pisces and your money sector on the 19th and three days later, the Full Moon on the 22nd cuts across the financial axis of your chart. It’s really important to get on top of finances during the Full Moon period. This is when you can see facts clearly and your logical brain helps you make wise decisions.
By the end of the month, Neptune is clouding the Sun’s vision and going with the flow financially could mean your money drifts away. Take a tip out of Virgo’s book and know exactly what’s coming in and what’s going out.
