The one thing that you can count on for sure, at this time of year, is that the focus will be on relationship and financial matters. The Sun always has and always will, start February in your relationship sector and end the month in your financial sector. The shift, as is the case every year, happens on the 19th February but as is always the case, the lines are always blurred. In this case Mercury will stay on in your relationship sector until the 26th February, doing whatever he can to ensure the communication lines are open.
A lot of water has already passed under the bridge since Mars returned to your relationship sector in early November, with the Sun’s final weeks more about bringing things together rather than starting anything new. You should know what you want from your relationships and what they need from you and whether single, in a relationship or between relationships, it is more about an objective look at where to from here. It is while the Sun is still here that a lunar eclipse in Leo on the 11th February might bring personal and/or relationship tensions to a head. The Moon will be advocating for your needs at a time when no one else is.
This will confront both you and your relationships, bringing the wakeup calls that you both need. Even though a solar eclipse in your financial sector on the 27th February will put even more focus on money matters, just eight days after the Sun’s return, again this will be more about tying up loose ends. So much has unfolded on the financial front over recent months that the Sun’s return on the 19th February and Mercury’s on the 27th February is more about taking care of any housekeeping.
As for your financial dreams and the ambitions for the coming year, they have already been banked. What will take you by surprise this month is the amount of adventurous forces in play. Mars returned to your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery late last month and will spend the whole of February fuelling a passion for adventure and a hunger for life’s richer experiences, with help from Venus from the 4th February.
Leo February 2017 Love Horoscope
That the focus is going to be on your relationships at this time of year is a given, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of February in your relationship sector. What is not the norm is for Venus to have not only been and gone, but how long ago she left. Venus left on the 3rd January, creating the largest gap between her departure and the Sun’s arrival ever.
Venus stretched the boundaries of the possible distance between the two to the very outer limits. This was both an advantage and a disadvantage. The advantage is that this gave you a massive jump on your annual relationship review, having spent much of December here she was able to give you a clear sense of what you want from your relationships, long before there was any call for reality checks.
The downside is holding onto desires and expectations. Yet if Venus was early to leave then Mercury, planet of communication is late to arrive, finally returning to your relationship sector on the 7th February. After so much water has passed under the bridge, Mercury finally returns with the support to ensure the communication lines are open. This is the end of the line as far as your annual relationship review is concerned. The Sun will leave on the 19th February and Mercury on the 26th February, after which point you and your relationships will be on your own. This makes the lunar eclipse on the 11th February especially important, for putting pressure on the Sun this will bring any relationship issues to a head.
With just days of your annual relationship review left to run, you want everything out in the open. While a relationship chapter is running its course, romantic forces are ready and waiting to steel all your attention. With support from Saturn in your romantic sector Venus, planet of love returns to an adventurous part of your chart on the 4th February, to kick off some romantic adventures over the coming months.
Leo February 2017 Money Horoscope
There are two things that you can count on for sure. The first is that until Neptune leaves your financial sector in 2026 you will have your money hat on 24/7, so there isn’t a month where your focus isn’t on money matters. The second thing you can count on for sure, is that the Sun will always return to your financial sector in February, turning the solar spotlight on your financial situation, matters and options. Anything over and above that is at the whim of other cosmic forces.
This year the money gods haven’t waited for the Sun and in fact they didn’t even wait for 2016 to finish. It was Mars’ return just before Christmas and the alignment with Neptune over the New Year that allows you to start 2017 with your financial passions and dreams fuelled. It was just days later that Venus returned together keeping your financial dreams, professional desires and expectations fuelled through much of January. Mars only left in late January, so his financial passions and fighting spirit are still very much alive. It is Venus and Neptune, the planets of money and dreams that are in charge as you move into February.
Missing from any of this is reality checks or any forces that will help you to turn this into anything tangible. This is how the money gods are playing things this year, spending months fuelling your financial confidence, passions and dreams before even looking at the ‘when, where and how’. Venus will leave on the 4th February and that’s when a massive confidence boosting period will come to an end. Until the Sun returns on the 19th February there is a chance to let things settle.
This is when the reality checks begin. You can’t turn desires into reality without getting real and the Sun is all about getting real. Mercury’s return on the 26th February will finally give you the smart head for money needed to get your head in the game, work on your financial game plan and resolutions. It is just a day later that a solar eclipse on the 27th February brings a chance to finally draw a line in the sand, capturing everything that has transpired over the previous two months and a bit. A chance for new beginnings comes with an opportunity to take everything you’ve been working on, everything you’ve grown to believe possible and to walk the talk.
Leo February 2017 Career Horoscope
The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of every year in your work sector and always returning just before Christmas, you have the advantage of starting and ending every professional year in the spotlight on your work situation, matters and options. While the Sun left on the 20th January, it is not unusual to find Mercury still here, tying up loose ends and finalising your game plan for the coming year.
What isn’t the norm is that Mercury has been here for so long. Mercury returned in early December for what should have been a 15 day visit aimed at giving you the intellectually savvy edge and articulation needed to get your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open. Yet in that time the Sun has been and gone and Mercury is still here and until leaving on the 7th February, each day is a gift. This makes the first week of February the most important for making choices, decisions and plans and for just getting your head around where to from here. Just two days before Mercury’s departure Ceres will return to your career sector on the 5th February.
Ceres, dwarf planet and goddess of the solar system left in October, putting a mission to redefine your professional priorities and your sense of purpose, promising that she would return. Ceres returns to honour that promise and the timing couldn’t be better. Not only does this come just as you’re in the final days of finalising things on the work front, but it gives you the rest of the month to prepare for Mars’ return early next month. When Mars returns things will take off professionally, whereas you have the majority of this month to work with Ceres. By the time Mars returns to fire up your professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit, you should have a better sense of what you’re fighting for.
