As you move into the second month of 2018 what is significant is that the Moon has now made one complete orbit and therefore cycle through your chart. This is important, because it is the first four weeks of every year that every aspect of your life is put to the test. During the first four weeks of any year the Moon not only crosses every planet in your birth chart, it aligns with every planet in the solar system and forms every aspect possible to each transiting and natal planet. This is like running a systems check when you get a new piece of electrical equipment in order to get a sense of how things are running.
By the time you move into February the Moon has just left your career sector, having come full circle from a Full Moon in the New Year. With that full lunar cycle over, this explains a new sense of confidence and anticipation. Last month the Moon put everything to the test and the result is that the personal and/or relationship tension of last year is gone. The Moon put those to the test and while this may have spiked at the time, there was nothing for this to hold onto. In the process this exposed the stunning position you find yourself in on both the income and job fronts. The opportunities might not have manifested yet, but they are definitely there.
As well as getting an A on job and income potential this year, relationship forces are a lot more solid and well supported. In fact, there is some major support on the communication, friendship and relationship building fronts. Another aspect that is getting an A is on the fun, playful, romantic and creative front, with a solar eclipse on the 16th February making this a stunning month for matters of the heart. Even when things start to move on the job front, which they will do from the 11th February, it will be easy to maintain a balance between work and play.
Libra February 2018 Love Horoscope
The focus is always going to be on romantic matters at this time of year, but this time last year you were short changed, with the love gods working to make up for this. By the 1st February 2017 Venus, planet of love had been and gone and you not only had Jupiter in Libra, but there was a lot of tension between him and both planets in your relationship sector. Venus spent less than three days in your romantic sector last year and with a lot of relationship tension throughout the year, the love gods never really got a change. Fast forward a year and things couldn’t be more different.
Uranus and Eris, the two planets under pressure for much of last year, are now in a much healthier position in your relationship sector. With Mars spending the whole of February in your communication sector and no planets in opposition, there is no pressure and in its place nothing but support. This means the conditions are a lot more love friendly this year, which is why the love gods may have put in minimal effort last year. You not only start the month with Venus, planet of love in your romantic sector alongside the Sun, they will be joined by Mercury on the 1st February.
For the first time in 17 years you also have the South Node in your romantic sector and this is the reason for a solar eclipse here on the 16th February. Venus’ departure on the 11th February means that she won’t be here during the solar eclipse, but she will align with the forces behind the scenes before she leaves. Knowing there is a solar eclipse just five days after she leaves, Venus won’t leave without raising the bar on your expectations and creating an ideal romantic environment. Yet even when Mercury leaves on the 18th February and the Sun on the 19th February there will be a strong sense of romantic anticipation, with even more surprises over the coming months.
Libra February 2018 Money Horoscope
Things become a lot more settled on the income front this month, as well as a lot more stable, powerful and potent. Ever since lucky Jupiter’s return to your income sector last October a parade of planets have moved through to help get things up to speed, on the right track and to gain as much momentum as possible. The last planet was Mars, who only left over the last weekend of January. By the time you move into February, Jupiter has been on his own for just five days, but it will stay that way now until Venus returns in September.
Jupiter is here to promote income growth and not leaving until November, the focus now shifts back to the journey itself. With no more shifts, Jupiter is in position and will remain in position for the majority of the year. Yet this is not the only reason why the Moon’s return to your income sector from the 6th February to the 9th February is so timely. This is the Moon’s first visit since Mars left and since Jupiter has been on his own since returning four months earlier. These monthly visits are the trail of breadcrumbs that will sharpen your nose for money and alert you to your next steps.
Yet what makes this so timely is that the Moon will leave just two days before Venus, planet of money’s return to your work sector on the 11th February. Venus’ mission will be to fuel your job confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction. Venus returns every year, but it has been 12 years since you’ve had lucky Jupiter in your income sector at the time. To have the Moon sharpen your nose for money just days earlier is a massive advantage.
Libra February 2018 Career Horoscope
February is always the month when things start to move on the job front and regardless of when the holiday period ends or when the new professional year officially begins, for you it is not until February that you tend to find your momentum. This has nothing to do with being behind the eight ball or procrastinating and everything to do with the fact that the Sun will always return to your work sector in February and usually Venus and Mercury as well. In that respect February is as near text book as it gets. However, there are conditions in play that suggest that things will not only be a lot more successful this year, but lucrative as well.
With Chiron in your work sector since 2010 and Neptune here from 2012 to 2026, work and job matters never go completely off the boil, but they become more active when the Sun and faster moving planets return. Because you never get a chance to take your work hat off completely, not throwing yourself into your new professional year until you have to, has become the norm and an important part of pacing yourself. Yet with Chiron leaving, his direct turn in December marked a point where you are now getting ready to put the past behind you.
You will notice the other difference this year when Venus returns on the 11th February. As the planet of money Venus will always fuel your job confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction when she returns to your work sector each year. However, for the first time in 12 years Venus returns to find lucky Jupiter in your income sector, as will Mercury when he returns on the 18th February and the Sun on the 19th February.
