MONTHLY HOROSCOPE - February 2019
By Jennifer Angel
This is a very busy time for you, Aries; just the way you like it! Work is demanding but you can’t neglect your health either, so you will need to be organized this month to accomplish everything you commit to. The full Moon in your area of organization will help you clear out anything that impedes your productivity. You can move forward with career success now but beware of taking on too much. And in this sense, you need to be careful of making promises you have no way of keeping. Instead, if you can pace yourself, you will be pleased with the progress you make during this time. Mercury, the communication planet, heightens your intuition, so pay attention to it. With love and romance, beware of a temper tantrum mid-month when Mars and Uranus connect. However, directly after on Valentine’s Day, the 14th, when Mars moves to the next sign, all can be forgotten, with romance taking over. However, with Venus in your career zone, if you want romance, you will need to be conscious to make time for love.
Communication planet Mercury moves to your area of friends and connections and the energy can help put you in front of the right people at the right time for advantages introductions for both your personal and professional life. With this month’s new Moon energy in your career zone, this is a period where you can get organized to capitalize on opportunities to get ahead with your work. Be careful not to get too bogged down with issues that only result in wasting your time but don’t serve any real or productive purpose. For love and romance, with passionate Mars moving to your sign on Valentine’s Day, the 14th, a passionate connection with someone amazing can literally take you by surprise. And the full Moon, a few days later on the 19th, takes place in an area of your sun-sign chart that can signify the start of something new and be exciting for both singles and couples.
This month’s full Moon can influence communication in both your home and work life. You can gain a greater perspective on where your life is heading now but as the energy is intense, you will need to be beware of encountering mix-ups. Make sure you get the facts, and not act on rumor or gossip. You may not be in control of everything that transpires in February. However, with the Sun’s entrance, as well as Mercury, your ruler, into your career zone during the month, indicates that if you stay focused on the end result, everything will move in the right direction with a beneficial outcome. The energy of Venus movement can open the door for you to build a deeper romantic connection with someone, but it may be up to you to make the first move. Beware of letting a situation with a friend get out of hand, sometimes, the least said is the best. Above all, you don’t want to jump to any conclusions, slow down and enjoy life.
Love and money take top billing this month and may even be connected on some level. A connection between Venus and Pluto can be start of something fabulous in your life but be careful you don’t jump to conclusions or act too quickly. Try and let life play out to see what eventuates. You will also need to tread carefully at work to ensure you don’t impulsively do something you might later regret. Sometimes, it’s best to let others do the talking as what you don’t do or say, can have a powerful effect. News of money can come through and this is a good time to collaborate with others, but make sure you are organized with all the paperwork in order. With love and romance, and with Valentine’s Day this month, a little romantic indulgence could be just what you need. Try not to get too serious about love, sometimes it’s nice just to enjoy the moment and see what comes next rather than having expectations.
Love and work both demand your attention this month and you will need to be organized to stay on top of everything. Prioritize your to-do-list and focus on what matters most. Doors can open now in business and your career, and Venus helps you to connect with significant and influential players. Early in the month, lunar energy in your area of relationships can stir desire and motivate you to follow your passion in life, love and work. Your life can transform this year, but you will need to be proactive and steer it in the direction you want, rather than leave everything up to fate, or to others. Communication is important to keep your love life on track. Be open with your thoughts and feelings to allow someone into your inner heart to build a closer bond of togetherness, especially with Valentinus’s Day on February 14th. Couples can reignite sparks or take your relationship to the next stage with a little extra focus on romance!
The full Moon in your sign on the 19th is intense energy and can be unsettling, but it does give you a chance to bring to closure anything that is no longer working or useful in your life. Use this phase to process the recent past and leave old baggage behind as you continue to move into 2019. Positive connections can be made through social engagements that will be beneficial for career and business, especially with creative projects. Mercury, the communication planet, will transit to your seventh house of relationships on the 10th, and can highlight a time to have a sensitive discussion with someone close, in particular a romantic partner. If you are in a relationship or dating, you can expect to have discussions about where your relationship is at right now and where it is heading. This is a good time to investigate possibilities and let your intentions be known, particularly with Valentine’s Day on the 14th.
As passionate planet Mars sits right opposite your sign, the area of relationships, and connects with Uranus, the combined power of energies can force you to look at your relationships more closely and deal with issues that are perhaps long overdue to be addressed. This can set you on the path for a more enlightened and empowered relationship. For singles, get your thoughts and love list in order so you can attract and manifest the love life you desire – romance can take you by surprise now and you want to be ready. However, be careful of letting life slip by because you are looking for the perfect partner; allow yourself to have fun and see where life leads. Love planet Venus heads into your area of home and family and can also focus your attention on monetary matters. Some of you may be beautifying your home during this time, too. Your intuition is sharpened with the energy of the full Moon in the sign before yours. Messages can come through dreams or coincidental meetings that you would be wise to take notice of.
Your creativity is soaring sky high right now and you have the ability to communicate your ideas and concepts in a very concise way. With Mars and Uranus connecting in your area of productivity, you will want to be organized, so any sudden changes to your schedule won’t spin you out of control. In relation to career and business dealings, the energy will allow you to come to terms with anything that is not working. No matter how much you want it to come together, if it is not meant to be, you are best to let go and focus your energy on areas that are more viable. The full Moon in your House of friendships can reveal to you any disloyalty with friends or associates in a candid and unmistakable way. As passionate planet Mars makes his way to your love zone, an electric connection with someone will be impossible to ignore. There is a lot going on this month, and you want to be sure about your decisions, which can mean taking extra time to contemplate.
Saturn, the planet of caution, stability and business matters, is still situated in your solar second house of money and possessions. This energy focuses your attention on being careful with financial arrangements, both professional and personal. And as new Moon energy opens the door to have discussions about opportunities that can enhance your bank balance, you want to make wise choices. Change is in the air, which can be challenging, but if you go for it, your reward can be an over-all life upgrade. However, in the meantime, the more organized you are, the more productive you will be. Love and romance can come out of the blue for you this month but be careful of judging and acting too quickly with how you think a situation is unfolding. With Valentine’s Day on the 14th, you could have a pleasant surprise, so keep an open mind and heart. There is also an opportunity to make life at home more stable during this time.
Life is ‘always’ busy for Capricorn, and with pro-active planet Mars moving to an area of your sun-chart where connections with others are made, for both love and work, just when you thought you couldn’t take on anything else, life gets interesting. You can handle it, though; with your superior organizational skills somehow, everything, including your love life, is scheduled into the day-planner. But be flexible, as not everyone will work to your priorities. As Venus moves to your sign early in the month, romantic energies are certainly heightened. Whether single or in a relationship, as difficult as it is to remove yourself from the work quarters, if you want your love life to flourish then you need to put some time, energy and focus into it. For love to find you, you have to make yourself available. Opportunities for additional money-making projects can come through this month and relieve some financial pressure with a new start, which provides much more security for now and the future.
Your annual new Moon will occur at the start of next month, February 4th. It’s a great time to get your goals, dreams and wishes in order to start your next solar cycle with positive intention for what you want to achieve. Remember the saying, ‘if you fail to plan you plan to fail’. Favorable aspects suggest that money matters can lighten up, and partnerships as well as relationships, can work out well.
As an Aquarian, you strive to make a difference in the world through intellectual pursuits and in helping others, but first you need to look at how worthy you feel of achieving your goals and cast aside self-doubts. For love and romance, if you’re in a relationship, it can move to a deeper stage. Looking for love? First, to avoid repeating past love lessons, look at the type of person you want to attract and analyze past associations to see if there has been a pattern. With Valentine’s Day mid-month, and a new Moon in your sign, this is the perfect time to do some personal ‘love-work’.
As the Sun moves to your sign on the 18th, your own view of yourself is under the microscope making it a positive time for self-analysis and self-development. Friends can step forward now with ideas and opportunities worth considering, so listen to what they have to say. Financial planning is a good habit to adopt, and especially this month as Mars and Uranus connect, the energy can cause unforeseen developments. The more in control of your money matters, the more secure you feel. With Mercury’s influence also entering your sign, your mind and instincts are both sharp now. The full Moon in your love zone can instigate change in some way. As a romantic water sign, the connection between you and a love-mate needs to ‘feel’ right and be smooth, not abrasive. This month is about building friendships and taking love slow. When you get to know someone as a friend first, and the chemistry is in place, togetherness can happen naturally.
FEBRUARY 2019, Monthly Planetary Overview by Jennifer Angel

The close of January
The month closed with Saturn and Neptune interacting, providing balance between logical and intuitive thinking. This aspect will highlight the need to follow both a material and spiritual outlook on life.
Moving into February
The beginning of February, week one, 1st through to the 3rd.
Mars Pluto energy can set up a power battle between parties, of whom will need to compromise to agree on an outcome. But any upset can be forgiven shortly after as Venus and Uranus energy can distract your attention with a surprise development that will be impossible to ignore. It’s a good time to connect with friends and socialize. And as Venus enters Capricorn, an attitude of responsibility can take place with money as well as security and stability with relationships.
Week two – February 04-10
The week kicks off with a new Moon in Aquarius on the 4th, which is a sign of socializing with people, those you know well and those who may be from outside your usual circle. It is a time of independent thinking, as well. The very next day is the commencement of the Chinese New Year and the sign of the Pig, symbolizing a year of good luck and fortune.
Right at the end of this week, on the 10th, Mercury, the planet of communication, makes its move to Pisces, sharpening your intuition and instincts. Because of a Mercury retrograde transit in March, Mercury will have an extended stay in Pisces and will not depart until mid-April. During this time, you will need to pay careful attention to the details of any situation or arrangement.
Week three – February 11-17 The day before Valentine’s Day, the 13th, Mars, which is assertive, but also aggressive energy, will connect with Uranus, so be careful you don’t have a temper tantrum that can end up spoiling your Valentine’s Day plans. If you get through this day unscathed, then as Mars moves to Taurus on the 14th, the sign and house of love and money, an irritable moment can be replaced with you being simply irresistible.
Week four – February 18-24
This week begins with the Sun making its move to the sign of Pisces on the 18th, increasing sensitivity and intuition. The next day, on the 19th, the Sun will be opposite the Moon in Virgo, a full Moon at zero degrees Virgo and also a super intense Super Moon. This is a time to let go of anything in your life that has run its distance and is destined to come to an end, rather than fight to hold on. And as Mercury and Neptune connect, it’s a perfect time to put your focus on inspired thought as to what your future can look like. As they say, the best way to manifest your future is to first focus on it and then create it.
Towards the end of the week, as Venus and Pluto conjunct, this powerful connection can be a game-changer with love or money, giving you the nudge, you need to step out of your comfort zone and incorporate changes that can literally change your life.
The close February 25th through to the 28
An interaction between the Sun and Mars, both powerful forces, can provide the energy to motivate you to follow through on intentions and plans. However, do be careful of being too impulsive, the best plan is a thoughtful and calculated one, not a rash move.
Moving into March, Venus and Uranus challenge each other, which can set up a power struggle that involves love or money, and possibly both. Remember, not all battles are worth winning, think carefully before you take a stubborn stance. On the other hand, this aspect can bring about unexpected change that can take matters out of your hands, and in this case, it can be a blessing-in-disguise. And as Venus moves to Aquarius right at the beginning of March, the month commences with independent thinking and the energy for standing in your own circle of power, highlighting self-awareness and self-development.
