TAURUS

The New Moon eclipse on February 26 makes 3pm the absolute primo moment of the year for you to drop everything and spend a good half hour thinking about what you want, writing it down, doodling images of it and visualising it. In relationship news, expect someone to need you quite a lot – but don’t expect any thanks for your efforts (yet).

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 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.

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.

There’s nothing wrong with ambition. It gets bad press. But unless you’re totally ruthless and hell-bent on clambering over others to get to the top, it’s actually a healthy fulfillment of our potential, to aim high and work at a high level It’s definitely time to turn your mind to your career and ambitions now – where you’re going, where you want to go and what you want to do once you get there. If you’ve got a job interview coming up, you should be able to prepare yourself excellently, and sail through it (just do the preparation with serious intent). If you’re in a job you want to go further with, now is the time to be formulating your plans.

Many of you will find yourself working longer and later over the next few weeks but your efforts will be worth it. Don’t get bogged down in paperwork and procedures. If you need to speak to someone about your next career move, it’s a great time to book your appointment to have the chat. If you want to study to improve your work skills, it’s as an ideal time to be either booking yourself in for the course or starting it.

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:
The last few weeks have most likely seen you giving Number One priority to your career. If that’s the case, you can expect your personal life to start demanding some more of your attention now, as the Full Moon eclipse takes place across your career and family zones. It’s all very fabulous doing brilliantly at work and getting kudos (or at least managing to hold your own). But don’t let your ego lead you into thinking that that’s the most important part of life. Because it’s just not. Sure, there will be time to start to focus again on your professional life, but right now, if you listen to the Stars, you will hear them reminding you to take care of your personal life.

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.
The New Moon is taking place this month in your 11th House which is the part of your chart which relates to your friends and the things you’re wishing for. In a nutshell, having the New Moon here is very auspicious for two reasons. For one, it means you’re in a cycle over the coming four weeks when you can meet new people and sometimes, that’s the exact tonic we need. Be open to having new friends in your life. For another, though, it’s a hugely important time for manifesting.
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.

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…
This month sees your Wishing Zone being lit up by a powerful New Moon eclipse. Any New Moon in your Wishing Zone is a good thing – it makes your wishes extra powerful. But a New Moon eclipse here is potentially a life-changing moment! It makes now is a very magical time for you to get clear on your plans and commitments for the coming year. Knowing what you want puts you half way down the road to getting what you want. As well, the New Moon here can signal the start of a new and important friendship or romance. If you work, be sure to balance your home life and career.
