Aries - February 2019
Hello lovely rams! Navigating those tentative waters of friendship should be nice and easy in February, as the Sun warms up your house of friends until the 18th! Anywhere the Sun touches base us usually a healthy and happy place, as he increases your confidence for making new friends, being sociable and generally initiating and sustaining positive contact with the outside world! You are likely to find yourself at the centre of your friendship group now, and will be called upon to demonstrate leadership skills and arrange social activities. If you are a member of a social club or society, a role of prominence is also likely for you. Look out for new faces in your friend circle in the days around the new Moon of the 4th; with Mercury’s energy permeating all your interactions here, these people will be young, innovative and talkative, and your mutual intellectual connection will be apparent from the start.
Chiron steps back into your sign on the 19th, and this time he’s here to stay, spending the next nine years traipsing through this part of the Zodiac. Chiron is known for highlighting areas in our lives where we are not paying attention to our own personal healing and growth, and for those born under the sign of the ram, your ego and self-confidence could take a bashing as this transit takes hold. Others in your life may suddenly seem to be overly critical of you, and you might find your sense of identity is suddenly turned on its head. This is all about being happy with who you are, without needing verification from friends and loved ones, and it’s an important process for you. If you have a March birthday, Chiron will spend the next two years effectively back-and-forthing across your natal Sun, so prepare for some particularly serious soul-searching around your sense of self!
Mercury goes undercover in your house of secrets after the 11th of February, not the best of transits for romantic Valentine’s Day plans, as feelings become harder to verbalise all of sudden. Excitement and mental stimulation will be enhanced by clandestine conversations and secret meetings, therefore private, low key declarations will appeal to you much more than public displays of affection. Mercury and Neptune combine energies here between the 17th and 26th, creating an extremely creative and inventive environment which is fruitful for psychic and spiritual experiences. Venus also sextiles Mercury after the 15th, an excellent connection for working behind the scenes on important career or charitable projects. This aspect doesn’t reach perfection because Mercury turns retrograde in early March, so you may find such projects seem to fade away after a couple of weeks due to lack of commitment or foresight
Life continues to be an exciting experience as 2019 progresses, and Jupiter continues to push you into enriching travel and study experiences. Travel of all kinds is likely to feature more in your plans this year, you may even relocate permanently. Jupiter joins forces with the Sun during the days of the 3rd to 15th, to encourage you to join a new higher education course or creative class; a change of career could be triggered at last by this move, as months of pondering over where to go next finally culminate in constructive steps to learn something new. The full Moon of the 19th signifies upheavals to your everyday routines and this could also include a change of job or job role; the Moon’s trine with Mars at this time suggests that new work projects taken on here will considerably enhance your income. Have an amazing month!
