There is a New Moon eclipse this month and it’s taking place in your Love Zone, no less. In other words, there is room for change and even some excitement in your love life, whether you’re single or attached. Clear away past hurts and upsets. Forget about your past love stories, forgive and move on – here comes the eclipse!

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 eighth house of sex, money, intimacy and taboos. This is one of the sexiest transits of Venus – though sometimes it’s very subtle. This is the part of your chart where you keep your feelings re jealousy and possessiveness, so be careful if you have a tendency in one of those directions. If you’ve already been struggling with one or both of those issues recently, matters can be expected to come to a head at some point over the next month.

Subconscious psychological patterns which influence you when you’re in a relationship are likely to become more obvious – analyse yourself and see what you see. Be honest with yourself. Are you scared of letting someone get too close? What tactics are you using to keep them away? Sexually, this could be a super-charged month – make sure you don’t go getting in over your head, if you decide to Do Your Eighth House Thing and smash down taboos. Go at your own pace.

Financially, this part of your chart is about shared cash – the coming four weeks is a particularly good time to either ask for a raise or a loan.

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 are times for going out dancing all night, putting lampshades on one’s head and generally doing what old timers called “tying one on”. And there are times to get your house (and life) in order. Guess which cycle you’re in now? Put it this way – let’s hope you’ve had a fun last month or so because Mercury’s move now into your 6th House of Daily Work and Health means you can expect to party less and work more over the next few weeks.

The good news is that if you’ve been letting things slide a little – perhaps you’ve been having too much fun, perhaps a romance or a child has been taking up too much of your time – if you’ve been letting things slide, you can now expect to find the time and headspace you need to get back to attending to the tiny details of life. Clear your desk!

This is also a great time to be making a 6 or even 12 month plan, if that’s your thing. Certainly your ability to schedule is high, so don’t waste it, if you know you need to live a life that’s slightly less chaotic. Break it down – what do you need to do, what do you want to do, and when can you feasibly do 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 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 eclipse 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.
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.
How’s your love life? There’s a New Moon in your Love Zone happening this month, which means you’re getting the chance to really reinvigorate your love life. If you’re single, this is the perfect time to draw a line under the past and to move on from your old loves, your old dreams and any old heart aches. If you’re attached, you probably already know about the importance of keeping your relationship fresh – and this New Moon brings in fresh energy, so have a think about some of the times you and your partner can do this month and over the coming month. Remember, some of the best things in life are free!

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…
This month brings a rare blessing – a New Moon eclipse in your Love Zone! No matter if you’ve been married for years, you’re divorced and free, or even newly attached, the eclipse brings a massive chance for change when it comes to your most important one-on-one relationships, personal and professional. If you’re not happy right now with your partner or ex, this is the time to talk your feelings through. You can talk to them or someone else, who will really hear and support you. See if you can ‘fix’ things. Relationships (and even friendships) usually take lots of work – now is the time for you to put the effort in.
