You will have financial matters to finish as February opens, so you'll be getting out your checkbook and settling accounts no later than February 7, plus four days. Polishing off all your obligations will allow you to feel calm and in control.
Neptune will move out of Aquarius and into fellow water sign Pisces on February 3, to say until 2026! Neptune will encourage your imagination, but the most immediate change will be with Neptune out of your financial eighth house, a place Neptune has occupied since 1998 (never to return in your lifetime), that may have caused you financial confusion over the years. Now, with Neptune gone, you will get a better grip on your money and the way you manage it than you have had in years.
On February 7, Saturn will retrograde and remain in that weak condition until June 25. A home or family situation seems to have concerned you, either because you have a beloved parent or other relative who needs your assistance, or because a housing situation has brought you the kind of difficulties that have kept you up most nights. No difficult condition remains stubbornly in place forever, dear Cancer. With Saturn turning retrograde, you may change your mind about a home-related course of action, or you may have to tweak a plan to make it more viable in coming weeks. Do all the necessary backtracking now, to get things right. You will have the time you need to do so.
Your career has taken more twists and turns than a fast-moving novel, and this month it seems more surprises are on the way - this time, very happy ones! See what comes up on February 9 when both Venus and Uranus will link on your behalf. Venus will remain in your reputation / status sector (tenth house) from February 9 to March 5, and while there will do all this planet can to increase your standing and favor in your industry. You will have rare favor this month, and Venus will allow you to open doors to certain hard-to-reach VIPs.
You may need to travel quite a bit for business, whether to see clients or get projects moving forward. The travel you take won't be the kind to rack up frequent flier miles, however - you will stay closer to home, most likely traveling by car, rail, or bus, not by air. If you like to drive, just be sure your vehicle is well maintained, for you may need to use it quite a bit during the first half of 2012.
Once the new moon of February 21 arrives, you may be thinking about taking a much longer trip to the opposite coast, a paradise island, or an exciting city overseas. Watch the two weeks that follow this new moon and if you have to travel for business, choose this most favorable time to make your appointments in those cities. If you are going for a vacation and to enjoy romance, you cannot fail - you will have the whole weight of the universe behind you!
If you are undecided about which city to visit, choose one that is located on the water. With four planets in water sign Pisces, no matter what the reason for your journey, you will love the soothing quality of having water nearby; perhaps you will view the ocean from your hotel window.
When it comes to love and romance, you seem to be a bit distracted with career and travel considerations, but if you stay organized, you can manage to have a sweet Valentine's Day, February 14, anyway. Still, you may find that two dates falling later in the month prove to be even better. Circle the weekend of February 25-26, when fortunate Jupiter and the Sun will work on your behalf and bring on a weekend sure to work out to be sheer perfection. You may be invited to a lavish wedding or party - Saturday night seems especially luxurious. No party? Book a dinner for two in a romantic restaurant profuse with flowers, candlelight, and a stunning view of water or mountains.
Dates to note:
Venus will tour your career house, heaping you with praise and applause for work well done, from February 8 to March 5, a great time to do a performance review.
Finish writing checks or negotiating a deal on the full moon, February 7.
February 9 will be a standout day for career success!
When Saturn goes retrograde on February 7 to June 25, you may have to change your mind about a plan or strategy involving real estate, a housing matter, or one involving your parent. You may also change your mind about when to marry, or even whom you want to marry! Everything, it seems, will be under review.
Travel to nearby cities will populate the month, and in the two weeks after February 21, you will be more inclined to visit distant, even foreign, points on your map.
Romantically Valentine's Day could be nice, but you seem busy at work. There is one weekend that promises to be even better, February 25-25 (Jupiter meets with the Sun) and possibly over February 28 (when Pluto contacts the Sun). These heavy-duty planets will be very active and intent on helping start a new relationship or improve an ongoing one.
Your happiest romantic dates this month includes: February 1, 3, 4, 5, 12, 13, 14 (maybe), 16, 25-26 (four stars), and 28.
Since 2009, you may have experienced a number of radical career changes, setting off a process that required you to reinvent your career in some substantial way. As you enter February, you are adjusting to changes you have instituted since then. Your career still will require tending, but you seem to have a grip on things, and your natural sense of practicality and rational thinking is accelerating your adjustment.
Now, after the new moon of February 21, Mars, working with Jupiter and Pluto, will collectively provide you with a break - one you've needed but didn't expect would come. Jupiter will amp up your creativity; Pluto, your confidence; and Mars, intellectual stimulation from foreign cultures and institutions of learning (academia), as well as from and purveyors of news, including publishing and broadcasting sources.
Big ideas often require big funding - the kind that is beyond the normal person's ability to tap from their own reserves - so you may be seeking money from banks, investors, and people who owe you (and have not paid). If so, the full moon February 7 (plus or minus four days) will be a time to hear back news about those funds. It may alternatively be when you need to send off your final applications, pay off obligations, and generally take care of business. In a different manifestation, you may simply finish off your tax return.
Your daily life is likely to get busier once the friendly new moon of February 21 arrives, bringing with it a bushel full of inspiration, phone calls, meetings, and lots of points to discuss. Suddenly, your mind will be abuzz with ideas, and you'd be wise to write them all down, lest you forget any of them.
On February 3, Neptune is about to make a landmark move into Pisces and your third house of thinking and communication, to stay an astounding fourteen years. Neptune has not been in Pisces since 1847-1862. Neptune will gradually set off a trend of huge proportions that you will enjoy the fullest. Neptune blends beautifully with your Capricorn Sun and will work to enlarge your imagination and your ability to transmit imagery of great beauty and originality. If you write novels or poetry, compose music, create software, or work in the graphic arts, as a few examples, this trend will be an amazing benefit to you. The third house is associated with words and math, more than design, so that may give you clues about how to use this sparkling energy.
After the new moon of February 21, you might start work on a book, or on a smaller scale, redesign your Facebook, Twitter, or blog pages. On February 16-17 and 24-25, you will be at your creative, imaginative best, surpassing even your own expectations. Those are certainly days you should reserve time to tinker with a project. Stick with it at least 90 minutes - scientists say we have creative bursts in cycles that run 90 minutes, but we never know where in the cycle we are entering when we begin.
Romantically, you are holding all aces. Jupiter, the giver of gifts and luck, is now moving at strong speed through your love sector, a good sign that the universe is getting ready to help you find the love you deserve. Valentine's Day should be a standout this year if you have someone close - it may be time to get engaged or if you are already attached, to talk about having a baby.
The weekend of February 24-25, when the Sun will align with Jupiter, will be the weekend most likely to allow you to spin a magical love memory. You may fan the fires of romance on a short trip, or find new love by simply going through your appointed rounds in your own neighborhood. Life will be full of surprises when it comes to finding love - and for you, most will be very, very positive.
Two other dates may prove to be brilliantly significant too. The first, February 16 or 17 could also bring a happy love connection while you are out, showing your face to the world.
If you'd like to give a party at home, do! It's a good idea because Venus will brighten your home area from February 8 onward. Your best day for a fun, romantic evening at home will be on February 9, when Venus will ride close to Uranus, planet of lightning bolt surprise.
