Happy February, happy Valentines!

What you really need to know about this month…

There is a major meeting between feisty Mars and crazy Uranus this month and it’s taking place in your Love Zone. In other words, the less you expect other people to behave in a decent and sane manner, the less you will be disappointed! The Universe is urging you to learn to live and let live. Can you do it?

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:

Welcome to the House of Fun! Have you been having a bit of that lately? If not, then the skies are strongly suggesting to you that it’s time to get out and do a little bit of what you fancy! There’s a new start possible for you now re romance, creativity and kids, as the New Moon takes place this month. Could you use a restart re re romance, creativity and kids? Identify which one(s) you want to work on and draw up an action plan. What could you do to inch closer to what you want? Remember, the law of attraction means we can’t get what we want until we know what we want.

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 emphasis has been on the Everyday – the routines in your life, your daily work and health schedules, what you do for others. The click click click of life. The Full Moon suggests though that it’s time for you to think less about that and more about the hidden parts of life. Spare a moment for the esoteric. Spend some time alone in quiet contemplation rather than throwing yourself onto an endless treadmill of life where you don’t get a chance to think about anything much. There is a lot which has been swirling beneath the surface – and it’s time to allow it up for air.

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 fourth house of home and family. This marks the start of a relatively quiet time when you’re far more likely to be found happily ensconced at home than out on the town. Book your calendar up over the next four weeks so that you get to spend plenty of time chez toi, either with a loved one, friends or family, or at least a couple of DVDs and a loving cat. Venus here in this part of your chart is less visible than she is in other sectors. If you want to take time out from the hustle and bustle, do so. You have the skies on your side. It’s clichéd but true – home really is where the heart is for you now. You can expect to feel quite peaceful over the next few weeks – what you’ll want is to proceed quietly, surrounded (if possible) only by people you love. You only get this chance to reconnect with this side of yourself once a year, so make the most of it. If you’re thinking of doing up your home, renovating or decorating, you have the stars totally on your side.

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 part of your chart now being activated by Mars is your love zone – the part of your chart where you deal with your most important one to one relationships, past, present and future. Mars here can bring tensions but if you are smart, you can actually turn his visit into something positive. Rather than suffering in silence about anything which is bothering you, Mars can be used to tackle issues so that the air is cleared. Good relationships get hotter and more passionate now. Bad ones just get argumentative! Aim for compromise where you can.

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 5th house for most of February. As the Sun moves through your 5th solar house, it’s as though the Universe is issuing you with an edict which will be valid for one month – enjoy yourself! The 5th house is where we have fun, where we keep our inner child. It’s also the part of our charts related to our creative sides – indulge that part of you now. Children can also be expected to be more in your focus now (your own or someone else’s) – at the very least, learn from them if you’ve forgotten how to enjoy yourself. Some of you will be looking to get pregnant, finding out that you are pregnant, or even giving birth. This is the ‘creative’ part of your chart and there is nothing more ‘creative’ than creating a new life! Romantically, it’s all about flirting and remembering how to mix fun with romance.

Have a beautiful month!
