Taurus - February 2019
How are you, Taurus?! Career prospects are looking good for ambitious bulls in February, as Mercury takes charge of your social networking until the 10th! This is a good period for discussing work aims, making contact with colleagues who can support your plans and ideas, and generally expressing yourself with eloquence and intelligence. Mercury forms a chain of cooperative aspects across the sky here which will send helpful others into your working environment to support you in your completion of tasks, his sextile with Mars being especially positive for working on secret or hidden projects. Some minor adjustments to procedures or routines may be necessary in order for you to get the best out of these collaborations. The new Moon on the 4th sends a new career opportunity your way; look for interesting work connected to communications, teaching and the legal profession. These opportunities will arise through everyday conversations, so listen carefully!
Neptune continues to send mixed blessings into your world of friends this month. On the one hand, his compassionate, imaginative and spiritual energy is fabulous for making emotional connections with some kind and caring people, and healing rifts which have persisted for too long in your friendship group. On the other hand, it’s really hard to keep a grip on reality when Neptune is weaving his watery magic, hence pinning people down to a solid commitment will be frustratingly difficult. Neptune and Saturn lock arms this month in a solid sextile which will last until the end of 2019; this transformative aspect will focus on your responsibilities to friends and the social groups of which you are a part. Responsibilities to such people may increase now, and you will feel the strongest sense of identity when you can be part of a team which works collectively for the benefit of society in general.
Energy levels could be lower than usual during the first fortnight of February, as Mars finds himself lost and lonely in your house of secrets. You may need extra rest and it will probably be harder than usual to shake off minor infections and illnesses. Mars also crosses the Moon’s nodes during his time here, suggesting that energy will perhaps be wasted dealing with petty arguments and disagreements among those you love. Feeling more irritable than usual, you will find it requires a lot of patience not to overreact. Focus and vitality will improve once Mars arrives in your sign on the 15th. The full Moon of the 19th also trines Mars from your house of leisure and creativity, and a new and exciting hobby is on the horizon for you, as you find yourself increasingly bored with the lack of interesting activities in your personal life.
Venus makes a beeline for your travel sector on the 4th, and will spend the remainder of the month occupying your mind with thoughts of your next holiday. You need to be surrounded by beautiful vistas and interesting people now or you will quickly become disheartened by the universe. Venus and Pluto connect in a passionate conjunction between the 18th and 28th, which could initiate an emotional romantic connection in another country or with someone from a different part of the world. If you are studying now, you will feel intense about your subject matter and might easily become embroiled in a heated moral debate with a student or tutor. Venus and the south node also clash after the 24th, an impulsive time when getting away from boring routines will be top of your priority list. Look before you leap to avoid regrets later on! Enjoy your month!
