Two of the main driving forces in your chart this year both reach a point this month where the focus shifts more to the journey and to their long game. Those two forces are on the financial and professional fronts, where the planets that are here for the long haul lose their support in much the same way that a rocket loses its boosters when it has broken free of earth’s orbit. Saturn returned to your career sector where he’ll stay for the next three years just before Christmas, but it is only on the 1st February that the last of the early support crews moves on. That final planet is Mercury, who leaves you with the intellectually savvy edge needed to keep your game plan.
At the same time, while lucky Jupiter returned to your financial sector last October, it was only on the 27th January that Mars left. After months of more urgent focus on money matters, Jupiter settles back into what is now a long term journey towards financial growth. This creates less urgency on the professional and financial fronts, but also more stability and durability. Jupiter and Saturn are the two most powerful planets in the solar spotlight and they are transferring that power into your financial situation and money matters.
At the same time Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos and your ruling planet is spending the whole of February in your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery. At a point of the year when the two major themes of the year start focusing more on the journey, the timing couldn’t be better. As Mars fuels your passion for adventure and a hunger for life’s richer experiences, the whole month is a journey and a voyage of discovery. There is also a lot more focus on your social life and matters, with matters of the heart getting a major boost.
Aries February 2018 Love Horoscope
The month starts with a full blown total lunar eclipse in your romantic sector well and truly underway. This began with the Moon’s return on the 31st January and will peak as January turns into February, the Moon will remain here until the 28th February. In a 28 day month it is very rare for the Moon to make two visits, but returning on the 27th February this will see the month begin and end with romantically charged lunar vibes in play, each magical for their own reason. Because the first visit began on the 31st January and will continue to unfold on the 1st February this is a Lovers Moon, a Blue Moon, a Super Moon and a total lunar eclipse. You don’t get more powerful than that.
For any Full Moon, it is often the case that what is triggered on a Full Moon comes to fruition when the Moon comes full circle and with the same forces still in play on the 27th February that is more than likely the case. For a 28 day month to begin and end with romantically charged lunar vibes in play and with powerful eclipse energy in play from the get go, is about as romantically charged as it gets. The one planet that will be working to take advantage of this is Venus, with the planet of love taking a different stand in each visit.
Venus will start the month in a social and serendipitous part of your chart and will be here when the total lunar eclipse gets the month off to a romantically charged start. With Venus triggering the laws of attraction and synchronicity and the Moon bringing the element of fate into play, be prepared for some serendipitous and unexpected developments. On the 11th February Venus will return to a nostalgic part of your chart to begin a nostalgic trip down love’s memory lane. Venus will be there when the Moon comes full circle on the 27th February, by which point Venus will be just days away from Aries.
Aries February 2018 Money Horoscope
Things settle down to a more even and steady pace on the financial front this month, as Jupiter spends his first full month on his own since returning to your financial sector last October. Since then the Sun, Venus and Mercury have moved through, but more significantly Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos. Mars returned in December for his first visit in nearly two years, but only left on the 27th January. This was during the last weekend of January and just days before moving into February. Mars has left you with your financial passions and fighting spirit fuelled, but without his urgency or need for action.
Mars was the force needed to get this powerful new financial year up to speed and for you to gain as much motivation, momentum and traction as possible. If all Mars has done is leave you with a better sense of what you’re fighting for, then his job is done. Jupiter is the largest and most powerful planet in the solar system and here until November, he will continue to promote financial growth over the coming year. However, with Mars gone it becomes much more about the journey. It is the Moon’s monthly visits and monthly alignment with Jupiter that are now the key to staying on track.
That next visit will come when the Moon moves through from the 6th February to the 9th February. Returning just nine days after Mars left, the Moon’s financial instincts and imagination will bring a chance to regroup. In the meantime, the Moon’s return to your income sector from the 21st February to the 23rd February will bring a chance to pick up on some valuable clues, hunches and insights there. With Venus returning later next month, for now it is more about having a lucrative sense of direction.
Aries February 2018 Career Horoscope
Things quieten down considerably on the professional front this month. But rather than return to normal, as they usually do at this time of year, they return to a new normal. Because the Sun will always return to your career sector just before Christmas and then spend the first three weeks of January here, you always start the year with a lot of focus on your career and professional game. Because Venus and Mercury travel with the Sun, January is often a month when there is a lot of focus on career matters and on getting your new professional year up to speed.
In that light then this has been a very typical start to the year, with the Sun and Venus having both left your career sector just days after last month’s New Moon and Mercury leaving in the early hours of the 1st January. This is the point where Pluto, planet of change and revolution, who is in your career sector from 2008 to 2024, takes the wheel again and it then becomes more about the journey. This is the pattern that every new professional year over the last eight years has taken. However, this year you return to a new normal.
That new normal is having Saturn on board for the next three years, for having returned just days before the Sun, this has obscured the much bigger picture in play. This is the first time that Saturn and Pluto have met up in your career sector in our lifetime and spending their first full month on their own they’re looking to the big picture. The Moon will come full circle from last month’s New Moon from the 11th February to the 14th February, while stopping in to check on work and job matters from the 2nd February to the 4th February.
