How are you, Cancer?! There is plenty of love flying around in February to make your Valentine’s Day one to remember! Jupiter continues to flood your house of romance with positive energy, and his rather glorious sextile with dreamy Neptune, which forms early this month and will persist until early December, could take you on a wonderful romantic journey for the remainder of the year. This is all about sharing those exciting, eventful life experiences with someone special, and you could easily meet a soul mate now on a holiday, learning course or through work-related training. Mars is also here after the 17th to spice up your love interactions, although this latter half of the month will be one of honest words and assertive discussions. In general, with Jupiter around, these conversations should remain positive, but Mars’s collision with the south node between the 21st and 28th does signify upheavals, and confrontations are likely with your other half during these days.
The Sun’s presence in your house of debts until the 19th is sure to generate dynamic, confident energy around decisions connected to loans, credit cards and mortgages. Authority figures are more likely to support you now and listen to your ideas, and it will be easier to secure financial backing for important projects or purchases, although you will be called upon to show accountability for your finances, and demonstrate that you are responsible and reliable in nature. The full Moon of the 9th illuminates your house of money and security, and this will be a reflection time for you, a period for looking closely at incomings and outgoings and ridding yourself of additional financial burdens which are weighing you down. A long term financial project could reach a conclusion now, and you may find yourself looking round for how best to invest your money in the future.
Lilith made a sign change in January and is now expressing her emotions in your career sector. Lilith likes to do things her own way and isn’t really up for listening to what others think of her, hence you may begin to feel more rebellious in your working environment as the year moves forward. This transit is also about honesty, and being yourself without apology, so if you have been having a tough time around colleagues and superiors who really don’t allow you to express yourself, that will have to change now. Venus is also in this area after the 8th and will conjunct Lilith and Chiron during the days of the 8th to 15th. A highly creative week is signified here, but in order to maximise your potential you will need to be completely at ease with yourself and your working surroundings. Venus’s square with the Moon’s nodes from the 11th to 16th may also create some issues around creative differences with colleagues.
Discovering new corners of the universe to explore will be high on your agenda after the 4th, as Mercury heads for your travel zone. His sextile with Uranus during the period of the 4th to 9th could be a particularly exciting one as a trip to somewhere exciting and unexpected is planned with friends. The new Moon here on the 23rd is also a highly favourable time for organising a holiday, or for beginning a higher education course. Mercury does turn retrograde on the 17th however, and these plans may be subject to change and not finalised until mid-March. Watch out also after the 17th if you are vacationing; make sure travel documents are present and accounted for, and that you have double checked times and dates. Have a great month!
