Early in the month, it could be a good idea to pay attention to your speech. Mercury is tensing up Jupiter from your house of daily work life, while Jupiter is lighting up your house of communication, media and short-distance travel. Practicing deliberate speech, especially in the workplace, is going to be of the utmost importance now and you’ve felt called towards that the past several months, as Jupiter is lighting up the part of the sky for you that represents communication, media and short-distance travel. You may have been able to partake in conversations that have felt uncomfortable or uneasy with ease and grace and have been able to more easily strike up a conversation with perfect strangers, feeling truly heard. Jupiter is moving into retrograde motion on February 6th, so introspecting about what you say and WHY you say it is a great thing to do during this time. Where does it come from?
Venus moves into Aries on February 3rd lighting up the house that represents philosophy, travel, higher learning and the spiritual center. If you don’t feel a special spiritual proclivity, you could be using this time to take a vacation, even if it’s for a few days. Venus brings ease to whatever part of the chart it encounters, so you’ll be able to relax for a bit if you plan on taking a trip. For the spiritual sort, this could be an open doorway to the right teachers at the right time to help you understand your spirituality more completely and maybe to introduce some new concepts.
Mercury joins the Sun in Aquarius on February 7th in your house of romantic and business partnerships as well as contractual agreements, all making positive aspects over to Jupiter in Libra in your house of communication. If you are single, this could be a time where you meet someone in your neighborhood or in the places you usually frequent that stimulates your mind and wants to know what you think about certain things. Romantic partnerships will surely be on your brain, as Mercury rules over parts of the mind. If you are in a relationship, this is a great time to go out and about with your partner as well as to have the conversations that need to be had to make life more copacetic.
On February 10th, there’ll be a full moon lunar eclipse with the Sun in Aquarius and the moon in Leo. This is very much highlighting a balance between your personal ego identity and alone time with the need to give your time to another, single or partnered. I suggest on the days preceding and following this to come up with ways you can better serve yourself and your physical vessel so that you can be capable of giving more to your partner, or just other people if you are single. Leos are very generous and can easily overextend themselves if given the opportunity, but sometimes you have to nurture you. This is a great day for getting a massage as an act of self-love.
On February 18th, the Sun moves into Pisces followed closely by Mercury on February 25th. This is occurring in a part of your chart that rules over sex, death, metaphysics and trauma. There may be some deep, dark themes coming up for you right now and in the past few months. Something that has been buried by you or someone else comes to the surface only to call you to pay attention. It’s really good for you to parse apart what energetically and physically belongs to you and what belongs to others. If it’s not serving you, give it back.
On February 26th, there will be an auspicious new moon in the sign of Pisces, joining up with the Sun, Mercury, Neptune, Chiron and the South Node. This is bringing a focus toward something that you may not want to look at. The astrological eighth house is one of the scariest houses but the lesson of this transit for you is that the only thing to fear is fear. If you let it, this new moon can be one of incredible transformation and healing, so doing things to support that highest Self of yours is the best thing you can do during these karmic times.
Later in the month, Mars is making a connection to the innovative Uranus in the sign of Aries in the part of the sky for you that represents travel, learning, spiritual truths and philosophy, bringing a new idea, concept or feeling regarding spirituality around the bend that basically slaps you in the face, totally blindsiding you. Maybe you are opening your eyes a little bit to the circumstances that have been forming your belief system or the direction you want to take your life. This will be opposing Jupiter in your house of communication and squaring Pluto in your house of daily work life and health patterns and behaviors, so it’s a good time to assess whether or not your work is fulfilling you or if it’s just dragging you down to a place where you aren’t really thinking positive thoughts. Are your meals nourishing your body and is your exercise regimen draining you or serving you? This is a great time to focus on lifestyle and asserting some control over your life.
