Besides the Sun's normal move between Aquarius and Pisces on the 18th, only Mercury and Venus change signs this month. Mercury begins the month in organized, ambitious Capricorn helping us with good, spot on focus. On the 7th it enters original, out-of-the box Aquarius helping with inventions, clever solutions and altruistic ideas. Venus is briefly in compassionate Pisces and on the 3rd enters Fashion loving Aries, urging us to seek out what is new and original.

Mars in Aries all month encourages startups, new ways of doing, and beginnings of al kinds. Saturn still in Sagittarius may bring out pressure and structure on generosity.  We begin February with no planets in retrograde motion. On the 6th Jupiter makes its station and turns retrograde indicating delayed rewards and/or the retracing of past relationships. The two eclipses this month are probably the most significant of the astrological events in February.

The Lunar Eclipse of the Full Moon in Leo takes place on the 10th, suggesting that we review and dispense with any outgrown love relationships or excessively egoic attitudes we may have developed. Examine attitudes toward children or those whom you may parent or treat like your children and assess your generosity—are you over-giving or manipulative in your attitudes? Do you give more than you receive and need to rebalance or reassess the relationship?

 For the Solar eclipse of the New Mon in Pisces on the 26th, note that it is accompanied by a conjunction of Mars with Uranus and might be an explosive day. Check any bridges you are tempted to burn and postpone that action for a day or so to be quite sure it is appropriate. On the other hand there is wonderful energy now for any new, compassionate, generous, spiritually oriented project you may wish to begin. If there are karmic issues of which you are aware, address them with positive action.

Days to be mindful include the1st and 2nd, with a Mercury/Jupiter square saying beware of exaggeration or even lies. On the 21st and 22nd an explosive Mars/Pluto square in forceful Aries/Capricorn might be useful if you wish to make difficult or stressful changes. This is a break-through aspect. Be flexible; if you encounter stress with resistance you may not fare well. On the 26th with the Solar Eclipse, Mars is conjunct Uranus in Aries. For best effect, this heavily loaded energy needs to be focused or channeled into the new and unusual.

Days to push your luck include opportunity sextiles on the 9th with Sun/Uranus, the 14th with Sun/Saturn, the 16th with Mercury/Mars, the 20th with Mercury/Uranus. Try new or different solutions and explore new potential. On the 10th and 11th a Sun/Jupiter trine brings a nice day to get married or just have fun. For the 21st Mercury/Jupiter trine plan traveling, meetings or discussions.
