While January is likely to have been crazy busy, things do scale back a little this month, though expect to have your work hat on 24/7. That manic phase ended with Mars’ departure from your work sector on the 28th January. Venus’ departure on the 4th February will see things further scale back, with a chance to let things settle and play out until the Sun returns on the 19th February. Counter balancing a need to keep your work hat on are the playful forces that are already in play at this time of year.
The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of February in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart, with Mars and Venus’ departure from your work sector allowing you to embrace this a little more. Mercury will move through from the 7th February to the 26th February, but with the Sun leaving on the 19th February, once he’s gone it will be up to you to maintain a balance between work and play. For unlike your work sector, where there is continuous planetary activity through to 2026, once Mercury leaves you are on your own.
Just a day after Mercury’s departure a solar eclipse in your work sector on the 27th February will have your head back into work mode again. What will be harder to dismiss are the extraordinary developments on the relationship front this month. Venus and Mars, the planets of love and passion are coming together to take whatever is there to start with to a whole new level. You can expect this to be challenged, especially in the later part of the month, when once again your own needs fight back. It is simply Jupiter taking his role as your personal advocate seriously, challenging relationship forces head on. All this is doing is checking that you’re still following your personal truth, something you and your relationships will benefit from.
Libra February 2017 Love Horoscope
That the spotlight is going to be on matters of the heart at this time of year is a given, due to the fact that the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of February in your romantic sector. While it is also a given that with Uranus in your relationship sector from 2010 to 2019 the focus will always be on your relationships, not to the extent to which you find it this month. While this might see romantic and relationship forces in active competition, they are on friendly terms and will be more than happy to help each other out.
Yet in saying that, what you have this month is a fairly mundane or ordinary romantic update, but something extraordinary developing on the relationship front. The Sun will continue to keep the solar spotlight on matters of the heart until he leaves on the 19th February. Mercury will move through, giving your heart a voice and putting heart and mind on the same page from the 7th February to the 26th February. While there are other romantic developments ahead, as far as planetary activity support is concerned, it ends with Mercury’s departure. It is on the relationship front that something extraordinary is developing.
It started with Mars’ return to your relationship sector in late January and will continue with Venus’ return on the 4th February, her earliest return in eight years. Yet it’s not just Venus’ early return but refusal to leave. It is here that Venus will turn retrograde next month, turning what is a normally short 24 day visit into an odyssey that will stretch out to early June. Expect some kickback from your own needs, especially in the later part of the month. Yet while this might see relationship tensions rise, this is simply a chance to balance what by then will be an extraordinary amount of focus on your relationships, to maintaining your own truth.
Libra February 2017 Money Horoscope
February is usually a quiet point of the year for both income and money matters as a whole. The last planet has usually left your income sector by late December or by early January at the latest. This wasn’t the case of recent years due to exceptional circumstances, circumstances that will continue to bear fruit throughout the coming year. When the Sun left your income sector in late September that brought all planetary activity to an end and it will stay that way until massive new opportunities open up later in the year.
However, there is so much untapped potential, that the Moon’s monthly visits are enough to keep you on track and on the trail. The Moon’s visit this month will run from the 16th February and to the 19th February. The timing is significant, for it will ensure your nose for money is sharp when the Sun returns to your work sector on the 19th February. The Sun doesn’t return to your financial sector until April, so it is even less likely to have money matters in play at this time of year.
That changes with Ceres’ return to your financial sector on the 5th February. Ceres, dwarf planet and goddess of the solar system left your financial sector last October, with a promise that she would return, a promise that she finally honours. Instead of starting over from where she left off, this is a complete do over for a planet that will have a major influence on the rest of your financial year.
Not due to leave until the end of April, Ceres returns to a familiar mission and that is defining your real financial needs and priorities. Ceres’ focus is not on the ‘when, where and how’ or even the ‘what’. Her focus is more on the ‘why’. Why do you want or need a certain amount of money, what lies behind the money, if you took money out of the equation what do you really crave? Those are the questions Ceres will help you ask and answer. And with Mars returning to your financial sector next month, the timing couldn’t be better.
Libra February 2017 Career Horoscope
The Sun’s return to your work sector will always ensure that the solar spotlight will shift onto your situation, matters and options in February each year, though not until the 19th February. Yet with Neptune in your work sector until 2026, whether the Sun is here or not you’ll still have your work hat on in some form or other. When you have a planet that is in an area of your chart for so long, in this case Neptune, who is in your work sector from 2012 to 2026, you can’t remain in the fast lane all year.
You need periods of activity and periods where things can run their course. In this case, those more active periods will usually kick off with the Sun’s return. Not this year, with the call having gone out much earlier than that. Instead things kicked off with Mars’ return on the 19th December, just in time for Christmas, New Year and the holiday period. Yet while this meant keeping your work hat on over the holiday period, an alignment with dreamy Neptune over the New Year made this more a chance to breathe new life into your dreams and aspirations on the work front. Venus’ return in early January meant your heart became involved much earlier in the year than is normally the case.
Mars left in late January, but with Venus here until the 4th February, you begin the month with a lot of traction, a lot of confidence and motivation, but as yet no clear mandate. That simply isn’t Venus and Mars’ job. That job falls to the Sun and Mercury, who make it up with objectivity, intellectual savvy and practical knowhow, what they lack in imagination. The Sun’s return on the 19th February and Mercury’s on the 26th February ushers in that more practical phase. This is when you’re able to get down to the business of making things happen. This means that a solar eclipse in your work sector on the 27th February comes with especially good timing. This will bring an opportunity for major new beginnings or at best a chance to draw a line in the sand, just when you’re ready to starting bringing things home.
