Aquarius - February 2020
Happy Birthday, Aquarius! May the universe send all the gifts you desire to make your dreams come true! Solar return times, are of course, all about the energy, and with the Sun directing his warm and wonderful light at your sign until the 19th of February, you will feel confident and optimistic about celebrating your future. Often the Sun is accompanied by lots of other planetary activity which can make it difficult to focus on your goals, but he is relatively alone here, so it should be fairly easy to make a plan. You may find you are a little self-absorbed under the influences of this transit, and it will be more difficult to really devote your time and attention to others. The Moon connects favourably with your natal Sun during the days of the 3rd to 5th, 12th to 14th and 20th to 23rd, and these are excellent periods for requesting favours from others and engaging in some social networking to advance your career.
Your ruling planet, Uranus, is slowly starting to progress through your domestic area again this month, and as he picks up some speed, family life will feel less erratic and relationships with loved ones will improve. It’s a positive month for breaking free of financial commitments and burdens to properties or oppressive family members, and for moving forward in your own right. Uranus sextiles the Sun after the 20th, and this last week of the month could see some unusual and eccentric visitors to your home. Unique and inventive ways to make money from your property will also become available to you, and if you are decorating, your taste will be highly original and perhaps a little controversial! Mars also joins forces with Uranus from the 17th to 28th, a time for unearthing family secrets and hearing confessions from relatives.
Venus glides gracefully into your communication sector on the 8th of February, and as her desire for harmony and co-operation permeates your interactions, you will find yourself gravitating towards those who can make your world a more sunshiny place with light-hearted conversation and social niceties. It’s a wonderful time for making interesting new friends and attending social functions and parties, but at the same time, you might find it harder to navigate your way through challenging discussions. In a change of tune in fact for the often-controversial water carrier, you may even avoid such conversations altogether! Watch out also for hidden or confidential information being exposed now about a personal matter, as Venus squares up to Jupiter and Pluto after the 24th and into early March. Someone can’t keep a secret here, but it’s less likely to be a malicious act, and more a case of gossip getting out of hand. The full Moon of the 9th may also reveal information about your partner which will make you see them in a different light.
Finances could feel precarious this month, as Mercury arrives in your money house on the 4th, only to do an about turn and fly off into reverse after the 17th. Any important discussions or choices around your cash flow might become undone as we reach the latter half of the month, and these will need to be re-talked in mid-March. Take care when attempting to secure investments for projects, initial backing may be withdrawn at this time, putting these ventures on hold. Problems with banks, cash machines and debit or credit cards are more likely too. The new Moon on the 23rd provides more stability, as an opportunity to enhance your income in some way falls at your door. Happy February!
