Aquarius - February 2019
Happy Birthday, Aquarius! The Sun’s annual return to your sign provides you with plenty of opportunities to make your mark on the world. With a renewed sense of confidence and enthusiasm for life, the first eighteen days of February are fabulous for making plans for your future, social networking and communicating your needs and wants to others in your life. The new Moon of the 4th signifies some kind of change to your personal appearance or habits, and a helpful connection with Jupiter here suggests that joining a social group to support you in your plans, such as a gym or weight loss club, will make you a whole new group of genuine friends. The Sun conjuncts Lilith between the 3rd and 15th, a very willful combination of energies which will encourage you to follow your own path regardless of what anyone else thinks of you. Deeply personal desires could surface now as you tap into your true inner self, and those who love you need to be prepared to accept you exactly as you are.
Mercury speeds into your financial sector on the 11th, and will soon be setting up new accounts, direct debits and online banking codes to ensure money matters are running as efficiently as possible. Ongoing issues with financial institutions are best resolved during these early days of the month if possible, as your communication skills will be excellent and your head for figures will be clear and logical. Mercury and Venus form a meandering sextile here which persists from the 15th through to March, and sends help for cash flow problems from a female friend or colleague. This aspect doesn’t reach perfection, however, before Mercury turns retrograde in early March, therefore you may find the help offered does not really deliver as promised. Mercury and Pluto join forces from the 17th to 24th, an excellent week for unearthing information connected to the financial situations of others. This is a helpful aspect for counselling people with money problems or investigating suspected fraud.
Expressing those prejudice-busting opinions will be a rewarding experience for progressive water-carriers this month, as Mars fights for his rights in your communication sector until the 14th. He doesn’t have any qualms about saying exactly what he thinks, so use his assertive energy to initiate those tricky conversations which are likely to cause upset or offence. Mars’s conjunction with Uranus creates an impulsive combination of energies in which thoughts will be leaving your lips before they have been registered by your brain, so tread carefully in sensitive situations where people could be offended by honest words! Work colleagues might come under fire from Mars’s challenging aspect with the Moon’s nodes during this first fortnight of the month, as everyone seems to be battling for supremacy.
Venus is resting quietly in your house of secrets and subconscious thoughts from the 4th of February, and this will probably be a rather quiet period for your love life, with not a lot happening. The purpose of her journey here is to allow contemplation and reflection about the expression of romantic and affectionate feelings, and because of this, you may find it harder than usual to let loved ones know how you feel. If you were hoping for an eventful Valentine’s Day, you might feel more comfortable with something low-key and private. The full Moon on the 19th takes you into a situation where emotional intimacy is required with another; don’t be worried about showing your vulnerabilities, this is a necessary process in order for you to reach a more meaningful level of commitment. Enjoy your month, Aquarius!
