February 2017

Get ready for your closeup! Until February 18, the Sun is blazing through Aquarius and your first house of self, putting you in the spotlight. Grab the metaphorical bullhorn (or a real one) and speak up. Your sign has a tendency to play nice, but forget people-pleasing now. This assertive energy will help advance your cause. Champion your most heartfelt beliefs and passion projects and don't go along with the herd just to be liked. All eyes are on you, so stand up and make this moment count!
 
As a bon vivant, your ebullient company is in high demand, thanks to energetic Mars firing up Aries and your third house of communication all month. Colleagues, friends and kindred spirits are all drawn to your life-of-the-party vibe. Prepare for a lively social calendar—and nonstop pinging on your phone. Of course, you may not get as much time to yourself as you'd like. Cut back on the multitasking to avoid getting drained. One step at a time!
 
Ready for a break? Starting February 6, horizon-broadening Jupiter turns retrograde in Libra and your risk-taking ninth house until June 9—a cosmic shift that gives you a break from your Aquarian-gone-global visions. Over the last several months, you might have been swayed by an inspirational idea—possibly expanding faster than your bandwidth could handle. During this four-month reflective period, slow down. Instead of jetting off to India on your next foodie tour, stay put. Your plans are still viable, but use this time to take a level-headed look at how you're approaching this next big chapter. Go over the itinerary of your dream trip with a fine-tooth comb so that when you DO head to far-flung shores, that trip goes off without a hitch. Or figure out what you need for a successful business launch next summer.

This is a great time to return to school or to brush up your skills. Since the ninth house is associated with philosophical beliefs and spiritual purpose, do some personal growth work. Jupiter has been in Libra since September 9, 2016, and will remain there until October 10, 2017. This brief break gives you a chance to catch your breath and make necessary course corrections before charging ahead again this summer.
 
But the pressure's still on, as expansive Jupiter and unpredictable Uranus are traveling in close opposition all month, with Jupiter in Libra and Uranus in Aries. Curveballs abound! Unexpected news could force you to think on your feet. A brainstorming meeting could result in you zooming off in a totally different direction than you'd planned. A sibling, colleague or neighbor might act erratically—one minute, they're your rock and the next—poof, they're MIA. Plans for a much-anticipated trip could stall and clip your wings. You might feel antsy with your current crew. This opposition is exact on March 2, which is the second of three such aspects. The first was December 26, 2016, and the next is September 28, 2017. Jupiter and Uranus only face off like this once every 14 years, so it's going to feel momentous!

Even MORE change is in the air because February is eclipse season! Two of 2017's four game-changing eclipses occur this month, shaking up the status quo. Eclipses can push us off the fence where we've been wishy-washy or procrastinating. Unexpected events crop up, and a whole area of our lives can change in short order. This can be exciting or daunting, depending how you look at it. Suffice to say, it's best to stay on your toes and expect the unexpected during eclipse season.
 
On February 10, the Leo lunar (full moon) eclipse kicks off a brand-new eclipse series on the Leo/Aquarius axis, which will last until January 2019. This will revolutionize the balance between "me" and "we" in your life. Major developments are coming to both your personal identity and your relationships. This eclipse falls in your partnership house: This could bring an exciting new contract OR the sudden end of a romantic or work arrangement that's run its course. You could take on a bigger commitment than ever—perhaps meeting a soulmate or getting engaged. Change could happen just like that. But first you may need to deal with unfinished business from your past. This no-nonsense eclipse arrives to sweep that away!
 
On February 18 the Sun enters Pisces and your security-minded second house for a month, giving you a sneak preview of the upcoming eclipse. Work and money matters are front and center. Manage your daily calendar by cutting out the nonessentials (sorry, Pokemon GO Meetup) so you can focus on meeting deadlines and paying bills. Review your budget, with an eye toward where you can trim expenses. The atmosphere is more grounded than it was during your birthday season, but you're ready to get productive. Harness those golden inspirations and make them concrete.
 
An excellent day to turn the financial page is February 26, when a new moon and solar eclipse in Pisces shakes up the way you earn, spend and save. This is the grand finale of the Virgo/Pisces eclipse series that began March 2015. To date, it has revolutionized your fiscal sectors, helped you value what you bring to the table and perhaps sparked a few heavy-hitting collaborations. This eclipse could bring an exciting new job or moneymaking opportunity. Or you'll experience a stabilizing event that firmly roots you on your path. You might radically revamp your habits. Perhaps it's time to stop ordering in four nights a week and start shopping at the grocery store?
