Money is one of the major themes in your month ahead and this continues on from significant planetary activity in January 2016.
Last month, communication planet Mercury was retrograde or on go slow and Mercury is currently in Capricorn and your money sector.
This month Mercury is back up to speed and flowing forward in direct motion. If you’ve been waiting on news or a third party has been withholding information from you, the situation should now begin to resolve itself. Mercury is in Capricorn until the 13th.
Plus on the 6th, Mercury teams up in a stunning aspect with your ruling planet Jupiter. Jupiter represents opportunity and growth and is currently flying high in Virgo and your career sector. Yes, Jupiter is also retrograde or go slow until mid-May, but it’s still a positive influence in your life.
This is a wonderful weekend to sign a contract, to discuss new career ideas with someone influential or to come up with ideas of your own. Mercury and Jupiter are both linked to education, knowledge and expanding your mind. Use your connections now and be open to study and learning.
This connection also indicates your best way to make progress right now and this is about laying strong foundations in your life. Both Capricorn and Virgo are earth signs, determined and persistent and know how to work steadily towards their chosen goals.
Being one of the fire signs, this isn’t how you usually go about things. You’re more impulsive, you like to take risks and your spontaneous approach to life may have got you in trouble in the last few weeks or months.
This month, temptation is never far away and someone close could try and persuade you to part with your hard earned cash. Interestingly, the most intense astrology takes place on the 6th, the same day as Mercury and Jupiter connect in the heavens.
If you know you have a tendency to gamble or your high risk approach doesn’t always pay off, rein in your impulsive nature. Now is the time to do things differently and to make sensible moves on the work and money front that enable you to build the future.
For some, it’s unexpected expenses that have proved troublesome and caused havoc to your financial situation. Be strict when it comes to loaning money and don’t just hand it over easily, especially to a child or lover. Other people benefit now from learning to save, conserve their money and work hard towards their chosen goals.
There is plenty to look forward to in February as there is a strong emphasis on one of the most sociable sectors of your chart with key planets in the air sign Aquarius. The Sun is here until the 19th and is joined by Mercury and Venus on the 13th and 17th respectively.
This is brilliant for going new places, meeting new faces and getting out and about. New surroundings act like a breath of fresh air and you’re more than ready to receive new energy into your life.
The New Moon on the 8th takes place in Aquarius and this is a positive date to join in with other people, to sign up for a course, to see what’s going on in your local community. Be sociable and make an effort to be pro-active in life.
You may want to get involved in a good cause, add your name to a petition or speak your mind. Aquarius rules your communication sector and this is a peak month to spread the word, get your message across and use social media to good effect. If you’re involved in marketing or promotional work, you’re on a roll.
Siblings, cousins and neighbours are included here so catch up with people close to you and renew connections with important people in your life.
If you’re looking for love, this is a promising month to join a dating site or to ask friends for an introduction. The 26th looks special and keeping an open-mind is recommended. Don’t be too set in your ways when it comes to choosing a partner in love and be willing to ring the changes.
Passion planet Mars is currently in sexy Scorpio and is in a hidden sector of your chart. This indicates a love affair, a secret liaison and Saturday the 13th looks especially intriguing. You could be in for an interesting Valentine’s Day, Sunday the 14th. Whatever you are up to, you’ll be keeping some of your thoughts and feelings private.
Finally the Sun enters Pisces and your home and family sector on the 19th. The last 10 days of February could prove to be especially emotional or sentimental. You’re pulled back towards the past and your memories are particularly vivid on Sunday the 28th.
The Full Moon on the 22nd cuts across the foundations of your chart and some of you have a big decision to make. Whether you’re changing jobs or moving home, you’re at a crossroads in life. Try not to act too fast but instead wait and see what next month brings your way.
