As the month opens, consider treating yourself to a change of scene. The new moon of January 27 is coaxing you to take a weekend getaway, and it would be good for you. The reason for your travels appears to be for purely pleasure, for your fifth house of true love will be lit brilliantly all month by none other than the cosmic lovers, Venus and Mars.
Venus and Mars is exactly where you need them to be, in fire-sign Aries, to amp up your magnetism to maximum levels. If you are single, you should do very well indeed, for someone new appears to be at the very next party. Attached? You will find your partner to be in a highly romantic mood, and any steps you take to surprise your partner will be reciprocated in kind. Valentine’s Day may be a banner day for you, for the moon will be in highly compatible Libra, and the other planets have set the scene for spinning a tapestry about your love life, made of golden threads.
Overall, this is truly a joyous time, so celebrate by shopping for new things for the coming season, and refreshing your look to increase your confidence.
The pace at work will be hectic in the first ten days, with overflowing email, texts, meetings, and much to do. Your mind will crackle with ideas, so share them, for those ideas will be lauded by higher-ups. If self-employed, the start of February would be the right time to start an advertising, publicity, or self-promotion campaign. Do presentations and sales calls, have lunch with clients, old and new prospective ones. You can get the attention of the right people and win prestigious new business, so give your plan all you have to give.
February has two major eclipses, one February 10 in Leo, that will direct your mind to things going on in a foreign country. You may be given an assignment to work for a company abroad that has outposts in your country, or you may need to travel overseas to do the project. It is just as possible that you may be working on a publishing or broadcasting assignment that brings in contractual talks near February 10. The person who will trigger the opportunity will be a friend.
The February 10 eclipse will be broadening, and will bring news that surprises you. News will come on suddenly and without warning. If you are looking for funding for a project or educational goal, it may come at this time. No matter if your talks are centered on a contractual or a salary matter, Jupiter will be smiling on you, so any money offered would be generous. Saturn is being supportive, too, giving your efforts a firm foundation. An eclipse this friendly is unusual, so even if the changes put on you are enforced, you will win out in the end.
The second eclipse, February 26, can have a massive effect on where you live, with whom, or in what style. The solar eclipse comes conjunct Neptune, so it will be vital that you get a water damage insurance rider built into your homeowner or renters policy quickly. With the Sun, new moon, Mercury, and Neptune all in the watery sign of Pisces in your home sector, be safe rather than sorry. This is also a highly creative, lyrical vibration, so if you are moving, renovating, or doing repair work, the outcome that happens later in the year should please you, and your design choices will be heavenly.
If you are not moving or renovating, then give a party on or after February 25-26, for it will be poetic and romantic, enjoyed by every guest, and two individuals you invite may even fall in love.
