Happy February, happy Valentines!

What you really need to know about this month…

There could be quite unexpected twists and turns for you when it comes to sex and/or money this month. Good twists and turns? Quite honestly, that depends on how you are living life. If you’re doing the right thing financially and you’re with someone you can reply on/trust, or you’re happily single, all should be well. Otherwise … plot twist!

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

Here’s where it’s triggering your chart:

Oh you lucky lucky thing! You have the New Moon in your 6th House this month. In one way, this is one of the most dull and tedious Houses. It’s the part of your chart which is all about your daily routines. Not exactly riveting! However, this is also the part of your chart where you get a New Moon and you get a chance to tweak your routines so that at the very least, your daily life runs in a way that pleases you. If there are minor changes you need to make to the way your life runs, to your routines and schedules, then this is a great month to put those changes in place.

Full Moon in Virgo on February 19
Full Moon details:

LA: 19 Feb at 7:53

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

The Full Moon takes place in your sign which is a sure message from the skies – it’s time to stop thinking so much about someone else, and time to start investing some emotional energy into your own well-being. This is a potentially highly emotional time so don’t be surprised if life feels extra intense. The trick is not to loose your cool, and to stay mindful of the fact that what happens now can be a path to your future. The Full Moon is definitely a marker for you – it can also be a turning point. If you’re not happy about where you life is headed, it’s time to turn and face a new direction.

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.
Fun-loving Venus is now moving through your fifth house of fun. And if you think that sounds like a good double whammy, you’re right. There nothing that the planet of pleasure, Venus, likes more than enjoying herself. And as she goes through your House Of Fun, having a good time is her Number 1 Mission. And it can be yours, too. Live a little, as they say! If you needed some kind of excuse to stop worrying and start indulging, you have it; Venus in this part of your chart means you are almost duty-bound to work less and to spoil and amuse yourself more. This Venus cycle is also good news for singles looking to meet someone, because your fifth house rules romance – of the light-hearted variety. Certainly, if there were ever a time to get out there and shimmy your shui, this is that time.

Couples don’t miss out, either. If you don’t find some of the old romance seeping back into your relationship over the next four weeks, it might be time to start talking to each other about your romantic expectations. Romance each other. This transit is also excellent for anyone with issues connected to children (your own or someone else’s). Any child-related issues should be more easily negotiated and resolved. Good news really is possible. Ditto if you are working on an artistic or creative project. Your ability should be extra high – now all you need to do is discipline yourself to harness your extra creative ability!

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:

Sex. Passion. Intimacy. Cash. What you are not allowed to do. All these are the domains of the 8th house. Now you have super busy Mars in there, stirring up these areas of your life. Having Mars in the 8th house can do wonders for your sex life – certainly your libido should be higher. However, Mars is also an argumentative so and so and in this part of your chart, he can cause arguments about sex or with your partner (or ex) about cash. Best advice – enjoy the heat of Mars in your sex zone. Promise yourself not to argue about cash.

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 6th house for most of February… It’s all very well coasting along and hoping that life will fall into place, but as the Sun moves through your 6th house, it’s time to think about the structure of your days. What responsibilities do you have which you just can’t be lax about and is your life organised in such a way so that you can get all that you need to get done, done. Think about your routines – are they helping or hindering you. This is also the start of a four week period when you would do well to look at your health – not because you are going to get sick but because it’s the ideal moment to make sure you’re looking after yourself. Finally, it’s a month-long cycle where you need to think less about how to serve your own needs and more about how to help others.

Have a beautiful month!
