GEMINI

Your personal life might be very demanding but do spare a thought for your ambitions this month, too. There is potential for an amazing new start for you at work. If you’re not feeling inspired by your professional life, February is the month to start taking things in a new direction, as the New Moon eclipse fires up your Career Zone.

INFORMATION FOR ALL THE SIGNS

It’s a massive month for all of us, astrologically-speaking! There are two eclipses. The first is the Full Moon eclipse in Leo on February 11. The second is the New Moon eclipse in Pisces on February 26.

No matter what your star sign, these are big celestial events which offer us all the chance to change.

With the Full Moon, think about what you need to let go of or move on from. Who do you need to forgive? You might even need to forgive yourself for something.

If you can let go of past upsets, it will allow you to stop dragging old emotional baggage around. Once you ditch the old emotional baggage, you can live more in the present, and it’s in the present that we create our future, right?

With the New Moon eclipse, it’s time to start something new. It could be a new friendship, a new course, even a new relationship. A really good practise would be to make a list of your top ten dreams, on February 26. Then make a few notes about what you can do to make those dreams come true.

Having a dream which you know you can work towards can work wonders (assuming you’re willing to do the work, of course!) No dream is too big or too small.

Eclipses are rare events and we need to make the most of them.
Going through the month in chronological order…

WHEN IT COMES TO ROMANCE AND RICHES…

Meanwhile, the planet of riches and romance moves into the first sign of the zodiac, Aries this month. This is interesting in itself as a planet moving into Aries in some ways is starting a new cycle. So when Venus is in Aries, it’s as though we are all starting a new cycle when it comes to love and abundance. If you have had a rough time in either or even both these parts of your life in the past year or so, consider the reset button hit!

More than that, though, this year, Venus’ move into Aries is even more curious because Aries is the sign that Venus will most of her retrograde in, starting next month.

More about what this means next month but bear in mind that whatever is going on for you in when it comes to love and money now, you’re likely to get some kind of second chance later if you need it.

Also note that as Venus slows down ready for her retrograde, you will be asked to re-re-evaluate one part of your life.

For now though, here is the info you need about where Venus is for you this month. Note that wherever Venus is for you, things should go quite well. Because she is moving more slowly ahead of her retrograde, she is actually making only one link to another planet this month, to Mercury on February 10, a day which augurs well for communications.

Venus is currently moving through your eleventh house of wishes and friends. This Venus cycle sprinkles some magic love dust over you and your friends. OK that might sound a bit ridiculous but watch over the next few weeks. It should start to become pretty obvious which of your friends are worth keeping for life, as your relationships grow warmer and lovelier. Anyone who makes you feel less than great about yourself could be cut off your Christmas card list now. Even if life has been tough of late, being with people you love will be extra rewarding over the next four weeks. Expect to find it easier than usual to meet new people, if you know the time has come to expand your circle. If there’s something you’re keen to accomplish now and you need a friend’s help, just ask.

If you’re sexy but single and looking for love, this is the ideal time to either go to as many parties as you’re invited to, or to throw a party or dinner part of your own and see what happens. Anywhere that you have to spend time with lots of people rather than one on one is best for you over the new few weeks.

MERCURY INTO AQUARIUS

Mercury is the planet of communications and this month, Mercury will move through Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces. If you’re one of those signs of you have one of those signs rising, you have an increased gift of the gab this month. And if you’re Cancerian, Leo or Virgo, Mercury will pass through your Love Zone this month which means it will be easier to talk through any relationship issues you’re experiencing, personal or professional.

Here are the dates:
February 1 to 6: Mercury in Capricorn (Cancer’s Love Zone)
February 7 to 24: Mercury in Aquarius (Leo’s Love Zone)
February 25 and into March: Mercury in Pisces (Virgo’s Love Zone)

Since Mercury will spend most of the month in the sign of Aquarius, here’s what that means for you.

Here’s some good news, if you feel like you’ve had just about all you can take. You’re due a break! The intensity of the past few weeks is about to ease off. The people around you are about to ease off. You no longer have to consider face dark and/or scary facts every time you open your mouth. If you’ve spend the past few weeks tackling intense issues until your head hurts, pat yourself on the back and move on.

It’s time to think about all that you’ve learned – this is the start of a four week period when exchanging ideas with others will expand your mind and teach you all kinds of amazing things about yourself and The World We Live In. If you’re about to head off on a journey, you are in perfect timing with the Cosmos. It could be a trip which really opens your mind to the word beyond your backyard. Ditto if you’re about to start a course of study or self-improvement. It’s like someone’s showing you a new area in your brain which you never used before.

As mentioned at the start of this post, the biggest news this month is that there are not one but two eclipses. Eclipse seasons, in my opinion, really are times to take advantage of. It’s a period when it’s easier for you to change your life. So what do you want to do? Nearly everyone has one kind of dream or another. It’s part of the human experience, to have desires!

So think about what you want. And if you really can’t think of anything you want (1) thank you lucky stars that you’re so blessed you have zero desires and (2) look around your life and see if there is someone you know that you can help to reach their desires.

YOUR FEBRUARY MOON MESSAGES

Aries – if you’re starting to think perhaps your life would be better if you got a bit more spiritual, then the skies totally agree with you. Commit to a more Divine 2017.

Taurus – it’s crucial that you make a wish on the day of the New Moon because it’s taking place in your Wishing Zone. Use this chance to create your 2017 reality!

Gemini – this is the time to work on your relationships. And if you’re too busy with work, then it’s doubly the time to work on your relationships.

Cancer – it’s an eclipse month so expect to be on edge a bit (as you’re Moon-ruled!) Good time to turn the corner with your finances as well. Leave behind financial fears.

Leo – the Full Moon eclipse in your sign is major news – you’re being singled out by the Universe to change your life as 2017 gets properly underway!

Virgo – the New Moon in your Love Zone means that one way or another, it’s time for you to start over, big time, in your love life. Farewell the past.

Libra – if you have been working too hard and not allowing yourself enough Zen time out, this month urges you to change that; put some new routines in place for 2017.

Scorpio – any tension in your life now can probably be relieved by balancing your work and the demands of your personal life. Seek a work/life balance.

Sagittarius – as the New Year unfolds with serious Saturn still in your sign, you’re being reminded that happiness for you this year lies in achieving.

Capricorn – you might feel as though staying close to come is a good idea right now but getting out of your comfort zone will leave you feeling far more fulfilled.

Aquarius – as tempting as it is to rely on someone else for your money, be it a partner or a company, for example, you will thrive this year the more financially independent you are.

Pisces – the New Moon in your sign is exactly the celestial juju you need to work some magic. Decide what you want – from your heart – and you can achieve it in 2017.

The first of the lunations will be the Full Moon eclipse – it takes place in Leo.
Full Moon Eclipse takes place at 23 Leo
SYDNEY: February 11, 11.32am
NEW YORK: February 10, 7.32pm
LONDON: February 11, 12.32am

Remember that the Full Moon is the time to forgive and move on. So if you are still hanging on to negative feelings from last year or even last month, use the Full Moon to release and let go. If you would like to forgive someone but you just don’t know how, this free Forgiveness Kit might help!

Here’s how the Full Moon eclipse is affecting your sign:
Over the past few weeks, you’ve hopefully allowed yourself the luxury of caring less about the details and more about seeing The Big Picture. With any luck, you now have a much clearer sense or either where you are going (in a metaphorical sense) or where you want to go (in a literal sense). There has been mind expanding going on – via travel, dreams of travel, talk with someone with connections far away or study. Now, though, as you might have guessed, it’s time to rein yourself back in and check out what’s going on in your own backyard. There are little tasks and chores which need to be attended to before you head off for the wild blue yonder.

Then we get the New Moon eclipse. Again, this is SUCH a powerful time and if you’re serious about directing your life, you will want to tune in!
The New Moon eclipse can be tapped into in two different ways:
1. Use it to predict what you can expect over the coming month (see below for where the New Moon is taking place for you)
2. Use it to manifest your dreams and desires.

Here are the eclipse times (note it will only be visible in parts of South America and southern Africa):
New Moon Eclipse at 9 Pisces
SYDNEY: February 27, 1.58am
NEW YORK: February 26, 9.58am
LONDON: February 26, 2.58pm

Here’s the information about where the New Moon eclipse is affecting your chart.
Let’s hope you’re feeling revved up about your career or studies because the New Moon eclipse taking place this month is flooding your professional life or your student life with potential and ambition. If you’re already on the right path in your working life, this lunation here can really amp things up. However, if you’re struggling professionally and not quite sure where to turn, use this New Moon as a marker. Over the coming four weeks, you need to really put yourself out there in terms of talking to experts who can help you get where you want to be career wise, and also in terms of very basic things like research your job market.

If you would like to tap into the New Moon eclipse and make some very powerful wishes, just set aside some time and write your wishes down. It doesn’t have to be any more complicated than that. Part of the magic is in deciding what you’re wishing for and what you’re willing to commit to. However if you would like a more detailed list of what to do, you might enjoy our free New Moon Wishing Guide here.

A word of warning…
MARS SQUARE PLUTO
Note that the toughest aspect this month is a clash between angry Mars and furious Pluto on February 22. Essentially it’s a day when you can move mountains. However it’s also a day when people can argue and pick a fight and generally act anything from brutish to brutal. So go easy that day, especially if you start to feel riled up!

In a nutshell…
Do you want to leave your mark on the world somehow? Whether you work or not, chances are you’d like to show the world you’re around! If so, now is the time for you to decide what that will be. What change do you want to bring into your sphere? Perhaps you have big dreams of your own. Perhaps you’re happy to help someone else achieve their own big goals. Maybe you want to make a different via doing something good or charitable. Whatever the case, the best thing you can do in February is work out how to make the world a better place. If you’re career-oriented, some kind of recognition could await you. You could even be up for a promotion.
