AQUARIUS

Happy February, happy Valentines!

What you really need to know about this month…

The New Moon in your sign this month is excellent news for Aquarians who are ready to start all over again (again!) Spend some time on February 5 writing a list of your top 10 goals for the year. They can manifest! You have extra mind power this month but also extra ability to lash people with your tongue. Be nice!

YOUR MONTHLY OVERVIEW

Here’s a funny thing; in my personal life, I have tons of friends who don’t really believe in astrology per se, and certainly hardly ever ask me for a reading. This month just gone, though, was a different story. Honestly, I have been inundated by requests from friends, acquaintances and people who want me to read for them.

I’m a big follower of patterns, so I couldn’t help notice the rise in requests. As soon as I thought about it, of course, it made total sense.

As you will remember, 2019 kicked off with not one but TWO eclipses! OF COURSE it’s going to be intense.

As soon as I started realising that, I felt better. I had an explanation for why so many people were going through the January mill and complaining about it either personally to me or in memes on their Facebook feed.

February should come as something of a relief to those of us who were doing it tough in January. For the record, the signs (and rising signs) most affected were in no particular order; Capricorns, Moonchildren, Aquarians and Leos and people with those signs rising.

We have
– No eclipses
– No alignments by any of the heavy duty outer planets
– No major planetary clashes

PRESSURE POINTS

The top 3 pressure points in February would arguably be:

– A Mars/Pluto clash on February 2. This most certainly starts the month off with a loud bang. More on that below.
– The pre-Valentines Mars/Uranus connection. Again more on that below.
– Plus there’s a powerful Venus/Pluto connection on February 23 which could make the end of the month feel very intense and maybe even a tad obsessive.

NO RETROGRADE PLANETS

One very interesting thing which IS going on in February is the fact that for the first time in what feels like a VERY long time, there are NO retrograde planets in the entire month of February. This is quite rare anyway but is especially interesting after the so-called “season of retrogrades” we had last year in the second half of 2018.

That was the reason why so many people felt like their lives were moving two steps forwards and one step back such a lot last year. As well it’s why so many weird things happen. Changes of plan at the last minute. Feeling unable to keep up with the changing tempos of life. On the upside, there were lots of second chances too, including in love.
I had some very weird stuff happen – I tell the following three stories not because they show the start/stop/start, forwards/backwards/forwards, yay/boo/yay nature of the retrogrades. (I am not complaining. Life is good! But this was the tone.)

– When I went on holidays in Europe in the middle of the year, the gorgeous-looking Airbnb apartment with a view over the Mediterranean we’d booked for the entire month of August turned out to be a little hovel with a view not of the ocean but a building site! (Boo!) Luckily my beautiful cousins came to the rescue and let us stay with them in their beautiful home, including while they went on holidays themselves. (Yay!)

– For another example, one of my favourite horoscope columns for a massive international company got the chop (boo!). This was due to the infernal budget cuts we keep hearing about. Six weeks later … they were reinstated. Rollercoaster! (Yay!)

– I flew to India for a two weeks holiday with my family and then left after just four days because there was an outbreak of dengue fever where I was headed (boo!). One minute I was sipping coconut water poolside in the sun, on the coast, grateful to be alive, the next I was in the hotel room packing our bags. We managed to get back to London and ended up having a week in Paris instead where we saw some fantastic people (yay!)

This was what it was all about. Start stop, do over, do it again.

So now?

In theory with all the planets now moving forwards there should be less of the confusion. So use February wisely. Tie up loose ends from last year and start to make some proper plans for 2019 if you were too stressed in January to do them properly.

WHERE’S THE MOON?

Speaking of plans, where’s the Moon, right? If you’re a regular reader, you will know that doing anything like described above is best done as soon as you can after the New Moon.

WHY THE NEW MOON?

It’s kind of a mystery why. The history of working with the New Moon to consciously create, like that of Tarot, is lost in the outlawed and burned teachings of so-called “sorcery”. Source-cery. Get it? From the Source. Creation from the Source. New Moon intentions have worked for me and thousands of people I’ve been exploring alongside, including online and on Facebook. You could christen (so to speak!) sorcery as where the Divine Feminine meets conscious creation.

THE NEW AND FULL MOON THIS MONTH

Moon in Aquarius on February 4
New Moon details:

Sydney: 5 Feb at 8:03
LA: 4 Feb at 13:03

Here’s where it’s triggering your chart:

The New Moon is taking place in your sign this month, which is big news for you. It essentially offers you the chance to start again in any part of your life where you know it’s needed. If you’re really happy with the way things are going for you, it’s just an energy recharge which will help to propel you all the way through the coming 12 months towards your birthday. If you want to change the way others see you, the coming four weeks are the time to work on that. Ditto if you want to do something to change your basic appearance!

Full Moon in Virgo on February 19
Full Moon details:
London: 19 Feb at 15:53
Sydney: 20 Feb at 2:53
LA: 19 Feb at 7:53

And here’s what you can expect from the Full Moon

The Full Moon is taking place in your 8th house. For you, it’s partly all about joint finances – that means where you get paid by someone else or where you pay them and also about loans and debt. It’s a time to be thinking about what’s yours, what’s someone else’s and where the two may or can or even should meet. You may find that you’ve been thinking too much about someone else’s needs but now comes a time when you start to focus more on feathering your own nest. There really is nothing at all wrong with that – in fact, with the Full Moon in your 8th house, it’s pretty much what you should be doing. Sexually, the coming month is emotionally charged. If things are good, they should get better. If they’re not so good, it’s time to address the issues. Sex is not always easy to talk about but this Full Moon brings makes it easier.

ABOUT VALENTINE’S DAY/ AND WHAT ABOUT LOVE?

Actually Valentine’s Day 2019 looks pretty good. The Moon will be in Gemini, for a start, which is overall a good thing, mainly because it makes people chattier. And while you might have other things on your mind if you’re falling in love, old marrieds will hopefully be able to enjoy some time together where they connect mentally as much as anything else, if you know what I mean! (Keeping it clean!)

Moreover, on the night of February 14, the Moon will be in the waxing cycle. That’s the “intention” and “rising up” cycle which again augurs well for relationships on VD2019. Plus on the day, sex planet Mars moves into sensual Taurus and the next planetary link to form post February 14 is a very romantic Venus/Neptune connection. Cue sentiment, love fantasies and getting drunk with your beloved. Them’s the facts, among other things!

GOOD LOVE DATES

To work out the good love dates, one trick is to see what the planet of love and cuddles, pleasure and lacy underwear, Venus, is up to. Here’s the hottest Venus dates of February.

February 2 – the day could start off with a bit of upset but a lovely Venus/Uranus link later on should help things to settle down.
February 3 – Venus moves into Capricorn. Especially good if you have planets in Capricorn!
February 16 – we will all be feeling a dreamy liaison between loving Venus and romantic Neptune. If you’re looking for love, it’s a GREAT night to do a wishing session or a vision board.
February 18 – Venus connects with dreary Saturn. It could be tough for some but if your love is strong, it can feel more solid than ever now.
February 22 – a powerful link between Venus and passionate Pluto is the right recipe for love … and dramas.

SPEAKING OF LOVE

Venus spends most of the month in the sign of Capricorn – here’s what that means for you.
Venus is now moving through your twelfth house of secrets and sleep. If you find yourself being required to make some sacrifices for someone you love at any point over the next few weeks, do it with pleasure, if you can. This Venus cycle is partly about putting someone else’s needs before your own. You might not get instant thanks for what you do, but the good karma will eventually find its way back to you. On the other hand, be very careful to avoid bad karma now. Especially be careful if you’re thinking about getting involved with someone who is not really available to you. Quell any desires to get involved in any love triangles. Let me put it bluntly: take care before you either have an affair or seduce someone who’s attached elsewhere. You have been warned! Similarly, be careful if you feel like you’re giving or getting mixed messages romantically now – sometimes during this cycle it’s impossible to be CLEAR. Confused by love? Far better to be patient. Being in this cycle means the next Venus cycle sees the love planet in your own sign. And if you think that sounds good, you’re right.

A CAUTIONARY NOTE

As mentioned above, there is one super tense link this month and it takes place right at the start of February (so it’s totally over and done with by Valentine’s Day). It’s a clash between angry Mars and furious Pluto. So mind how you go in the first few days of February, especially if you have a short fuse or you’re dealing with someone who has a short fuse! Wherever you have Mars now is where you could feel the upset. Here’s where that is for you at the time of the clash:

The good news is that your mind is now as sharp as a tack. The not-so-good news for anyone you don’t like the look of is that your tongue is also razor-like. Mars is in your communications zone so you can expect to perform well mentally and in writing. You will relish the chance of a verbal dual, you will cut people down to size with a few well-chosen words and you should find it easy (at last) to catch up on all those old emails. Want the courage to send that saucy SMS? You’ve got it. Just remember than Mars is the planet of anger too, though. Remind yourself 10 times a day to speak calmly and respectfully.

WHAT ABOUT YOUR FOCUS?

Meanwhile the Sun – the focus – is in the sign of Aquarius for most of February (until the 18th). Wherever the Sun is, imagine it shining a spotlight in your chart. It’s a time to see how confident you feel about whichever part of your life is being illuminated. Also to check you’re not being arrogant!

Here’s where the Sun is for you…

The Sun is in your 1st house for most of February. The Sun moves through your sign this month after an absence of 12 months. If you’ve been feeling like you’re coming to the end of your tether, you should start to feel like you’re regaining your grip. You can also expect to get a lot more attention than you’ve had in recent times. How you feel about taking centre stage for a while? People are going to be checking you out, so do all you can to shine! This is your recharge month. If you need to come across as confident, you have the skies totally on your side now, supporting you. Try not to be too self-centred – though it is tempting at this time of the year!

Have a beautiful month!
