While every month will have its share of planetary shifts, especially as the Sun’s march through the heavens continues, but the month is dominated by a massive amount of planetary activity in a nostalgic part of your chart, but also by 2017’s first eclipses. Until the 19th February the Sun will keep the solar spotlight on your professional game, as he does at this time every year. However, you’re likely to find that you have already gained most of your momentum and this is more a case of tying up loose ends.
As is always the case, this is when the Sun shifts his focus onto your social life, returning to your sector of friendship, teamwork and networking on the 19th February. Again, this will once again be to find that a lot of water has already passed under the bridge. It is here that a solar eclipse will fall on the 27th February, something that could trigger some fateful and serendipitous new beginnings.
This is right in the heart of what will be some of the most important days of the month for personal and professional networking. Yet from the get go it will be clear that the laws of attraction and synchronicity are in effect. Many times throughout the month you are likely to find yourself in the right place at the right time. The lunar eclipse in your home and family sector on the 11th February might be a bit random, in that you haven’t had anything happening there for some time.
However, this is more about what lies ahead, with fate stepping in to put things in motion that might not make sense now, but will do later in the year. As with all eclipses, there is a need for trust, letting things play out naturally, especially if they don’t make sense. However, this will be a trigger for anything already at a tipping point on the home, family and/or property fronts. During the course of the month you may find you lose your taste for the fast lane.
Taurus February 2017 Love Horoscope
There is something subtle but also confident about what is happening on the romantic front this month. Nothing screams that you have reached a game changing month for romantic matters, but this is definitely a good month. The focus is definitely on romantic matters. Apart from the Moon’s visit to your relationship sector from the 16th February to the 19th February, there is no influence from the relationship gods.
But then that is not unusual, despite the fact that recent years have seen a lot of relationship focus all year. There are important relationship developments this year, but not until later in the year. The Moon’s monthly visit is a chance to listen to your emotional responses to relationship matters. Venus, planet of love will start the month in a social and serendipitous part of your chart, but on the 4th February will return for what should be a 24 day visit to a nostalgic part of your chart.
This is the stop that Venus must take before returning to Taurus and on the 4th February that should mean she is just 24 days away, returning either at the end of this month or early next month, right? Wrong, Venus will eventually return to Taurus but not until June, returning to begin what should be a 24 day nostalgic trip down love’s memory lane and then deciding she likes it too much to leave.
Venus is slowing down and early next month will turn retrograde, spending another month retrograding back over the same stretch of love’s memory lane that she’ll cross this month. There are other romantic influences in the air this month that not only heighten a sense of romantic nostalgia, but a sense of romantic confidence as well. Romantically charged lunar vibes from the 12th February to the 14th February will accentuate this, boding well for Valentine’s Day.
Taurus February 2017 Money Horoscope
Things settle down to an even pace on the financial front this month, for the first time in 11 months. Since Mars’ return to your financial sector in early March 2016, things have been on a roller coaster ride. Not because there were necessarily challenges, but a parade of planets moving through, all took money matters in a different direction.
Until Mars left in late December, fired things up, left and then returned and fired things up again. By the time the Sun returned to your financial sector in late November it had already been quite a ride. With Venus been and gone, then Mercury left in early December it was then a case of bringing closure to defining the financial year. Yet when the Sun left just before Christmas and Saturn, back on his own moved into his final year of a three year financial boot camp, things will have felt anything but settled.
It was Mercury’s return in early January that gave you eight days back at the drawing board, but it was the Moon’s visit late last month that finally brought all the pieces together. With Saturn not leaving until December and on his own until Mercury returns in November, finally after nearly a year you’re able find an approach and stick to it. There will be no more interference and no more alternative points of view to consider. You’ve got a financial game plan and resolutions and now it’s a case of sticking to it.
The Moon’s return to your financial sector from the 19th February to the 21st February will be a chance to check that you’re on track. Your financial instincts will alert you to anything that needs your attention. In the meantime, the Moon’s visit to your income sector from the 5th February to the 7th February will give you a nose for money, just as things are coming together on the career front.
Taurus February 2017 Career Horoscope
That you will have your professional hat on at this time of year is a given, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of February in your career sector. What isn’t the norm is for so much water to have already passed under the bridge or anything happening on the work front at the time. Instead, when the Sun returned to your career sector last month it was not only to reveal so much already in progress but that the fact, for the first time in 12 years, you have lucky Jupiter in your work sector.
The Sun shines the spotlight on your career and professional situation, matters and options at this time every year, bringing a chance to put your new professional year on an authentic path. Your biggest year for job growth in over a decade is anything but an ordinary professional year, so it’s no wonder that reinforcements arrived early and have already invested so much. It’s not the Sun that is here to rubber stamp things, but with most if not all your options already exposed, this is more a chance to figure out the ‘when, where and how’.
Mercury will move through your career sector from the 7th February to the 26th February and with the Sun leaving on the 19th February, this is when all of the choices, decisions and plans that will impact your new professional year will be made. Jupiter will turn retrograde in your work sector on 6th February and in retrograde motion until June, this will see work and job matters pull back. The focus will become more on retracing your steps and working with what is already on the table. As job matters retrench, the Sun and Mercury will continue to explore new professional pathways. They are intent on ensuring that by the 26th February you’re ready to take the wheel, with a clear mandate and a clear sense of where to from here professionally.
