There enough going on this month to have you excited, but not so much where there will be too many challenges, as long as you move into the month mindful of a need for work/life balance. This is something you encountered over the holiday period but then it seemed to resolve itself. That wasn’t exactly the case. It was more a matter of both sides agreeing to disagree and backing down, for the time being. Those sides are lucky Jupiter in your career sector and Uranus in your home and family sector. They moved into opposition over the holiday period then moved apart.
While Jupiter is slowing down ahead of this retrograde turn in your career sector on the 6th February and Uranus still recovering from his own retrograde phase, which only ended late last year, there seemed no point in pushing home any work/life balance issues. Except Jupiter’s retrograde turn changes things, for it sees the planet of luck and expansion do a U turn and head back towards Uranus, ready for a second go.
They will move into opposition again in the final days of February and early days of March, fortunately or unfortunately, depending on which way you look at it, just as a parade of planets are moving through your home and family sector. This time Uranus is in direct motion and with Venus and Mars on board, home and family matters are a lot stronger and a lot more determined to stand their ground. Yet Jupiter is a different planet as well. In retrograde motion and retracing his steps, he has lost his taste for the fast lane, so this is a point in your professional year where you need to pull back.
While there may be some tension in the later part of the month, this is something both sides need. Don’t worry about your professional confidence, for Jupiter is not only robust enough to handle a little pressure, if anything he becomes even more determined. With the Sun in your income sector until the 19th February and Mercury from the 7th February to the 26th February, this will be an incentive to work smarter. You will also find a new taste for all things playful and adventurous and genuinely wanting a balance between work and play, something you weren’t too fussed about one way or the other before, now brings extra incentive to get the right work/life balance.
Capricorn February 2017 Love Horoscope
Just when you weren’t expecting too much on either the romantic or relationship fronts, mainly because this is not an active point of the year on either front, the love gods step up and surprise you. This year you can be forgiven for having that feeling you have when you get your birthday present early, then when your actual birthday comes along you don’t have anything. At the time an early birthday present sounds great, but it can lead to a hollow feeling later down the track.
That was the case when you moved into both your birthday month and new solar year just before Christmas and into 2017 with Venus, planet of love been and gone. Venus will normally move through with the Sun, but instead she left in early December and won’t return until the final days of 2017. This was an advantage in that it allowed you to start the new solar year and 2017 with a clear sense of what you want from love. However, as the Sun doesn’t return to your romantic sector until April, that’s a long time between drinks.
Fortunately you won’t have to wait that long with Ceres, dwarf planet and goddess of the solar system riding to the rescue. Ceres is the mother of the cosmos, the planet that would tuck us up in bed and feed us chicken soup when we were sick if she could. Ceres looks after our needs and right now you’re in need of a romantic top up. Ceres left your romantic sector in October, not by the front door but by retrograding back out. As she left Ceres promised that she would return, a promise she will finally honour when she returns to your romantic sector on the 4th February. Once she returns she’s not going anywhere until reinforcements arrive and not due to leave until the 30th April she’ll be here when Mars returns next month.
From Ceres’ return to Venus’ eventual departure in late June, you won’t be left without romantic support. The Moon will move through from the 3rd February to the 5th February, leaving just hours after Ceres’ return. Ceres will return with romantically charged lunar vibes not only effect, but in effect for two days.
Capricorn February 2017 Money Horoscope
It is a given that the focus will be on income matters at this time of year, due to the fact that the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of February in your income sector. Yet while this is when the solar spotlight will always fall on your income situation, matters and options, often this is your first chance to look at income matters for nearly a year, so you’re often just starting up. This year the situation is very different, in that you’re now finalising everything.
Mars’ return to your income sector in early November and Venus’ in early December meant that things kick off incredibly early. With the Sun not returning to the 20th January, Venus stretched the limits to how far ahead of the Sun she could get to the very limit. Mars left just before Christmas and Venus in the early days of the New Year. This meant instead of waiting until later in January, you began the year with war already declared on glass ceilings, the laws of attraction already in effect and income matters already a work in progress.
From Venus’ departure on the 3rd January to the Sun’s return on the 20th January, your biggest challenge was staying motivated. By the time the Sun returned, the solar spotlight revealed everything already laid out, but also the fact that for the first time in 12 years you have lucky Jupiter in your career sector. Until the Sun leaves on the 19th February he will continue to explore and expose all your income options.
From the 7th February to the 26th February Mercury will finally return with the smart head for money needed to tie up loose ends. Both he and the Sun will feel the full brunt of a lunar eclipse in your financial sector on the 11th February. While this may see financial tensions rise, this is the push that both income and financial matters need. This could bring things to a head, turning and/or tipping point across both fronts.
Capricorn February 2017 Career Horoscope
The last time you had a planet in your career sector in February was in 2014, right in the heart of Mars’ epic eight month visit. This is not the point in the year that you would ever expect planetary activity in your career sector unless there was something extraordinary going on, as was the case three years ago. This time it is just an even more extraordinary reason and that reason is Jupiter, planet of luck and expansion.
Having returned last September and not due to leave until October, Jupiter is responsible for making this your biggest year for professional growth, potential and success in over a decade and chances are the full implications are finally sinking in. Jupiter is a large gas giant, full of gas and to put it frankly, hot air. Jupiter can often over promise and under deliver, especially in his early months, where there is often a state of hubris. This is not a fault of Jupiter or you or even a fault at all and all part of the journey itself.
Every Jupiter transit has three stages. The first stage is everything I have just mentioned, where anything is possible and the sky is the limit. The second stage is when it starts to dawn on you the reality of what you’ve either committed to or sense possible, so you ask ‘can we play that again, this time with my feet on the ground’? This is Jupiter’s retrograde phase and it starts on the 6th February. By the time Jupiter turns direct in early June you will have retained the best of the hot air phase and best of a review phase and until he leaves in October, this is when everything will come together.
If you start the month feeling disillusioned or feeling that all those high hopes aren’t turning out don’t despair, it means you have an excess of Jupiter energy to work with and that’s a good thing. It’s time now to move into a review phase, retracing your steps and rethinking what’s doable and what isn’t. This will also open the doors to the past, second chances and untapped potential. Either way, it’s time to not only pull over into the slow lane, but start walking back in the direction you came.
