Communication planet Mercury is completing its journey through Capricorn. This is where Mercury was retrograde, i.e. on go slow last month. On the 10th, there’s a Mercury-Pluto conjunction, the day before Mercury leaves Capricorn on the 11th.
This is powerful for you as Pluto is your co-ruler and Capricorn is your communication sector. Therefore, it’s worth asking what conversation needs to happen. You might issue an ultimatum or be taking on a powerful role.
There’s something final about this as next month Pluto leaves Capricorn. Consider whether you’re ready to let go of something that’s symbolic of Pluto, i.e. a course of therapy, a position of power, past regrets, a teaching role.
Also, your ruling planet Mars has been retrograde and turned direct last month on January 18th. However, Mars got stalled and has been taking time to pick up the pace. This happens in February.
Mars is currently in air sign Gemini, the star sign of communication, backing up the Mercury-Pluto theme. Gemini rules an intriguing part of your horoscopes that’s closely linked to your star sign Scorpio. This is about the areas of life that are difficult to reach; inner communication, reading between the lines, looking beneath the surface.
Mars here can feel intense and full on. Yet, you’re not usually someone who shies away from transformation. Delve deep into your psyche and talk about what you’re experiencing. Mars in Gemini is the perfect talking cure.
Dare to go wherever other people fear to tread and make this your motto while Mars remains in Gemini until the end of March. If you work as a therapist or have psychic abilities, your intuition and instincts could be particularly acute.
Money and work are key factors this month and there’s a sense of progress. Big planet Jupiter is flying high in Aries and your work sector. Plus, your ruler Mars lights up your joint finance sector in Gemini.
You may be negotiating money matters or be looking at ways to earn or invest more. The 18th & 22nd could prove dynamic in helping you move forward.
The Sun is in Aquarius, the star sign of the moment, up until the 18th. And, talk planet Mercury moves here on the 11th. Aquarius is linked to your home and family, your past and where you come from.
The Full Moon on the 5th is a stand-out date to make a clear decision about your foundations and your future path. The Full Moon cuts across the Leo/Aquarius axis of the zodiac and the base and peak of your horoscope.
This is about the work/life balance and setting new structures in place and making new plans that you can build on moving forward. It’s a positive date to make a decision about your career and future path, your home and past.
There is a proviso, however, because erratic Uranus is square the Sun and Moon from Taurus and your relationship sector. Therefore, someone else could have other ideas or plans. Be wary of the person who might take umbrage to what you’re trying to do.
It’s not wise to put another person’s needs before your own. Engage your head as well as your heart during the Full Moon phase.
There’s another powerful planetary aspect which could prove significant here. The Sun & Saturn align in Aquarius on the 16th. This combination requires commitment, resilience or discipline. You may be taking on a caring role or have extra responsibilities around your home or family.
There’s another influence that’s strong throughout February, the star sign Pisces. Pisces is a fellow water sign and Venus is here until the 20th. Plus, the Sun enters Pisces on the 18th. This is gorgeous for wishing on a star, dreaming and immersing yourself in fantasy.
As a water sign, you know how to engage deeply with inspiration and ideas and activities that feed your soul. In fact, this is imperative, as everyday life won’t always cut it. You need something more to sustain you on a deeper level; an activity, dream or personal quest that allows your spirit to soar.
Pisces rules one of the best sectors of your horoscope ruling your creative talents, your children and the things in life you ‘give birth to’. Therefore, this is an ideal month to focus on your self-expression and ensure that play and creativity are foreground. Encourage your inner artist or expand your ideas through visualisation.
As a Sun Scorpio, you have a laser focus and you love having something to get your teeth into that becomes your private obsession. The astrology suggests that this is a good month to lose yourself in a passionate or creative pursuit.
Something magical could be born this month, especially on or around the New Moon in Pisces on the 20th. New Moons are a symbol of new beginnings and this New Moon falls a few days after a gorgeous Venus-Neptune conjunction in Pisces on the 15th.
If you’re looking for love, start your search straightaway and know that things peak for you mid-month. Pisces rules romance, love affairs and new love in your horoscope.
