CAPRICORN

Happy February, happy Valentines!

What you really need to know about this month…

One thing you need to understand now is that relationships are good for you. Even if you have been through some tough times in the past, you will actually gain a lot more from continuing to search for long-lasting happiness than you will be going it alone. For some, love gets serious, for others a great deal is done.

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:
London: 4 Feb at 21:03
Sydney: 5 Feb at 8:03
LA: 4 Feb at 13:03

Here’s where it’s triggering your chart:

The good news for you is that this month, there’s a New Moon taking place in your 2nd House which is the part of your chart which is all about cash, property and possessions. If you want changes in any of these parts of your life, this New Moon is the ideal time to start to make the changes you want to. Remember that money is energy and it responds quite quickly to our thoughts of abundance or lack. If you know you’ve been thinking negatively about cash, use this New Moon as a marker and decide that henceforth you will turn your thoughts and expectations about cash around.

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 brings about tension as the Moon takes the exactly opposite position in the skies to the Sun. The Sun is where our focus has been – for you for the past few weeks, this has been on Your Own Backyard – your neighbourhood, aunts, uncles and sibling, little tasks, quick trips and lots of chats. Now the Full Moon asks that you shift your focus a little and that you step back and look at The Bigger Picture. If life is a cosmic quest, how are you doing? Do what it takes to expand your mind. PS If you’re thinking about taking up some kind of study or starting to travel, you have heavenly support.

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 first house of self and image. This is a wonderful Venus cycle for you – Venus is the planet of love, luxury, beauty and all things gorgeous. To have her in your sign means it’s Your Turn to start feeling her charms. Singles can expect to have more admirers than usual. Couples who’ve been feeling less than their best should find it easy to find ways to rediscover the romance. And whether you’re single or attached, you can expect to feel a lot more loved and even downright popular over the next few weeks. Those in problematic relationships are not promised an Instant Cure but (a) you should find more time to work on your relationship and (b) you should find it easier to negotiate your way to at least some kind of agreement. Appearance-wise, this is The Moment Of The Year to invest in a haircut, some new clothes, whatever it takes, to make you feel more worship-worthy. Venus, planet of love and beauty, passes through your sign but once a year – make the most of her visit. You are currently, officially, The Sign Most Gorgeous.

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:

There certainly are some sleeping dogs we need to let lie. Right now, though, if there’s an old emotional issue that you never managed to get sorted out, expect it to come back to the surface to be dealt with. Anger is always better out than in, by try not to blast people sky high if you get into some kind of argument with them – it’s probably not their problem. Mars here can stir up issues from as far back as childhood so it’s most likely unfair to blame someone else for your ‘stuff’. Own it. Your home and your family can also become a battleground if you’re not careful. Be nice.

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 2nd house for most of February. This month, the Sun through your 2nd house – many of you may feel a bit of a drop in power levels, as though someone has turned down your wattage. That’s fine and nothing to worry about. It’s just that the Sun has moved out of your sign for another year, so life will feel less like it’s being lived under the harsh glare of a spotlight; life should feel less intense; you now get a chance to catch you breath. Breathe! Over the next four weeks, as this shift takes place, it’s important to think about what you really value in your life – materially and emotionally – and to have a look at how much you love yourself (and ask if you could love yourself more). PS Money is good but don’t make the mistake of thinking that having ‘stuff’ makes you a better person…

Have a beautiful month!
