The month starts out on a strong financial note, with a new moon occurring on the last day of January in your 8th house of money, supported by Uranus in your career house. You may get a bonus at work, or perhaps come into some kind of inheritance from your family. If you’re looking for funding of any kind, you just might get it! Mercury goes retrograde in this same house from Feb 6th to March 1st, so make sure you initiate any plans in those first five days of the month, when the new moon will be strong and Mercury will be supportive. It’s a good thing money prospects look so good early in the month, because mid-month might bring an unexpected expense your way. On Feb 11th, the Sun in this same financial house will square Saturn in your 5th house of fun and children. You could fight with your love about money, or learn that you have to pay a large expense for a child or hobby. That’s no fun- especially so close to Valentine’s Day! If you’re buying a gift for your love, don’t go too far overboard! It’s not worth going into credit card debt.
Mars is zooming through your home sector, and you seem to be doing work on your house, hosting family in town, or generally thinking about housing matters or your family. This is an influence that will last until July, so get used to it! If you’re trying to buy or sell a house, you may hear news around Valentine’s Day, when Mars in your housing sector shoots a friendly message to the full moon in your income sector (Leo). A home loan may come through, or perhaps you get a fine offer on a house you’re trying to sell. Alternatively, this could indicate that you’re putting a lot of money into a home, whether you’re buying it or fixing it up. It could even mean you get a job or assignment where you work from home, or perhaps one in real estate, construction, or the family business. On Feb 15th, the Sun in your OTHER financial house will reach out to Mars in your home sector as well, doubling down on these possibilities.
Some good partnership news…Venus goes direct in this sector starting on the very first day of the month! If you’ve found yourself on a different page from your partner (whether that’s in love or business), or perhaps questioning whether you’re in the right relationship, you should be able to gain some clarity now. On Feb 24th, Venus in your partnership house will reach out to Saturn in your 5th house of love and children, making it a fine day for romance and creativity. If you didn’t get a chance to celebrate Valentine’s Day on the 14th, this would be a great do-over day.
Another great do-over day? Feb 22nd, when the Sun will conjunct Neptune in Pisces and your 9th house of travel. Pisces is a fellow water sign, meaning you two get along like gangbusters! Any travel should be downright magical on this day- especially if it’s on or near the water (Pisces and Neptune loooove the water). Just watch out for the 25th, when Jupiter in your sign will square Uranus in Aries and your 3rd house of communication. This would not be the day to sign a contract. Watch out for mechanical or transportation issues as well, and have a backup plan for any important travel, meetings, or writing or speaking projects. Luckily, on the last day of the month, the Sun will move to trine Jupiter in your sign, bringing better luck.
