Looking at where this month’s two eclipses fall will give you an understanding of what a diverse month this is likely to be. A lunar eclipse in your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery on the 11th February might take you by surprise, mainly because this will come completely out of the blue. Eclipses aren’t random, they fall in important areas of your chart, at important times of the year.
Except in this case there has been no planetary activity here for months and nothing to suggest that is about to change. Yet this lunar eclipse is more a harbinger of what is to come. Whatever it triggers, even if it’s just a severe case of wanderlust, curiosity or itchy feet, let it run its course. That is especially so of the emotional, intuitive and imaginative responses this triggers.
Eclipses bring an element of fate into play, except this time it is linked to developments that haven’t happened yet. The solar eclipse in your home and family sector on the 27th February couldn’t be more different. With not only a lot of focus on home, family and/or property matters over recent months but years, when this opportunity for new beginnings rolls around you will be more than ready for it. At the same time, while there are subtle but important developments unfolding on the income, work and career fronts, they are enough to have you excited, but not enough to make life all work and no play.
Even if you wanted to you would struggle. For the main weight of planetary influence this month is in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart. Venus and Mars, the planets of love and passion, are making this their home this month and they’re planning plenty of house parties.
Sagittarius February 2017 Love Horoscope
No doubt you can already sense that there is something in the air, with romantic forces mounting a major comeback. It begins with two ordinary events that are set to have extraordinary consequences. It was the wakeup calls over Christmas and the New Year that first saw the spirit of romance awaken, though at the time it may have had to fight to be heard.
Slowly, your romantic confidence is likely to have grown over the course of January, until the first ordinary event occurred. That event was Mars’ return to your romantic sector in late January. That is nothing to dismiss, but returning once every two years you’re due another fill up of his romantic passions and fighting spirit. It is Venus’ return on the 4th February that kicks off what should be the most romantically charged weeks of any year.
That is still the case, but instead of weeks, change that to months. Mars will spend the rest of the month fuelling your romantic passions and fighting spirit, while the 24 days that Venus will normally spend fuelling the romantic flame will come and go, with no sign that the planet of love is in any hurry to leave. Instead Venus will turn retrograde early next month, spending another month retracing all the steps she has taken this month. It has been eight years since Venus last spent this long in your romantic sector or opened the door to the past and second chances.
To have Mars here at the same time is a real bonus. Yet back in 2009 Uranus, planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected wasn’t here. The romantic developments this month are something you have been preparing for, ever since Uranus returned to your romantic sector in 2010. February isn’t just the most romantically charged month of 2017, but a gateway into some of the best romantic conditions you have ever seen. Buckle up and enjoy the ride.
Sagittarius February 2017 Money Horoscope
While the Sun will always leave your income sector in late January, it is not uncommon to still have either Venus or Mercury here, staying on in order to tie up loose ends and squeeze out every possible advantage. This will almost always be because they arrived late so are therefore staying on late.
So it’s not surprising to find Mercury here until the 7th February, still giving you the smart head for money needed to keep your head in the game. Yet what is surprising is just how long he has been here for, having returned in early November for what should have been a 15 day visit. Yet a retrograde phase and even an eight day sabbatical means this smart and intellectually savvy planet is still there, giving you an extraordinary amount of time, knowledge and hindsight to draw on.
Of course, with Pluto in your income sector until 2024 income matters will never go off the boil, but until the 7th February Mercury is giving you an extraordinary amount of time to iron out your choices, decisions, plans and resolutions for the coming year. Once Mercury is gone it will be up to the Moon and its nose for money to check on things. That first visit after Mercury’s departure will run from 21st February to the 24th February.
Money matters on the other hand have no planetary support, with the Moon’s visit to your financial sector from the 7th February to the 9th February your only chance. As your financial instincts kick in and the Moon fuels your emotional, intuitive and imaginative responses, this will give you all the information you need. Coming full circle from last month’s Full Moon, this may see money matters still unfolding or up in the air, fall into place.
Sagittarius February 2017 Career Horoscope
February should be a fairly low key month for both work and career matters. The most active months for career matters are August/September and for work matters, in April/May. A visit from the Moon is about all you can expect at this time of year. Except the norm flew out the window in September 2015 when Jupiter returned to your career sector.
While Jupiter left last September, with the North Node in your career sector from November 2015 to May 2017, there is a natural current in effect that is keeping what the planet of luck and expansion put in motion moving and the wheels turning. While things aren’t as extreme and as driven, it is keeping professional matters on track. This is like getting going on a road trip, putting in a lot of effort and paying attention during the early stage and then putting the car into cruise control.
However, things do start to get interesting this month, though not in a way that is likely to make life noticeably busy or that is pushing for any kind of changes. It began with the Chinese New Year on the 28th January. This ushered in the Year of the Rooster, a year that for Sagittarians is especially favourable for career growth. With the North Node still in your career sector, this will grease the wheels and make things run even smoother, without changing too much. Another subtle change is Ceres’ return to your work sector on the 5th February. Ceres was here in mid 2016, on a mission to get to the heart of your needs and priorities on the job front, especially in terms of job satisfaction and a sense of purpose.
Ceres retrograded back out last October, promising that she would return, a promise she finally honours this month. Ceres doesn’t just take off from where she left off but from the beginning again, with a chance for a complete do over. This time you start with the job half done. That you’re able to spend the majority of February getting to the heart of your needs and priorities on the work front is important, with Mars returning next month to get things moving in a fairly dramatic way.
