Month of February
Because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of each year in your career sector, January is usually the month when the new professional year gets its biggest push. With the Sun always gone by the end of the month, by the time you move into February there might be some loose ends to tie up, but usually, this is when things start to dial or ease back and it becomes more about the journey. You will reach that point this month but not yet, with things still running at full steam from the start.
This is partly because the month not only starts with Mercury, Mars and Venus still here but closely aligned with planets on the income and job fronts. It was in the final days of January and just as Uranus' direct turn took the brakes off the income side of the financial fence that everything started coming together. There is rarely any planetary activity in your work sector at this time of year, but after a retrograde turn last month the asteroid Juno, the queen of commitment is settled in for a visit that won't end until August.
It is just as you move into the new month that a friendly aspect between Mars on the career and Juno on the job front is starting to separate, with the warrior planet of the cosmos and the queen of commitment joining forces to bring new professional and untapped job potential together. With Venus, Mercury and Mars all separating from friendly aspects to Jupiter and Uranus in your income sector, the month gets off to an empowered start across the income, work and career fronts. The one planet that is missing is Pluto.
After 15 years the planet of change and transformation left last month but not before leaving you with a sense of what's possible and a journey that has got you to a point where you are free to branch out. Things will dial back once Mars leaves your career sector on 13th February and Venus on 17th February, but the dwarf planet Ceres will not only return on 8th February but won't leave until December. There will be planets keeping the wheels turning across the income, work and career fronts all year.
Because the Sun will always spend the majority of the first three weeks of February in your career sector, the solar spotlight is always on your career and professional situation, matters and options at this time of year. However, while each year will be different because of both where you are on your own journey and the cosmic conditions at the time, rarely have they been as different to what you find this month. For the last three years, the Sun has returned to find Saturn here and with his three year professional boot camp underway.
This year not only is Saturn gone, not to return for another three decades but in his place is Pluto, the planet of change, transformation and revolution. Where Saturn is all about sticking to the rules, Pluto is all about breaking the rules and with a firm foundation established, this is giving you the freedom to branch out, take some risks or make those big or small changes that can put the power back in your own hands. Pluto returned just a few hours behind the Sun and because as you move into the new month, they have only been here for 10 days, this is something that you are still adjusting to.
However, while the Sun is only here for a month, Pluto is here for the next 20 years, with time the one thing that you have in abundance. This gives you time to explore your options and open your mind to new possibilities before the faster planets start arriving. The first is Mercury, who will move through from 5th February to 23rd February, with a chance to get your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open.
Mercury will be here when the Moon moves through from 9th February to 11th February, creating a New Moon that will make this a good time for new beginnings or to start anything new. However, it is when Mars returns on 13th February that this is likely to do more than just fire up your professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit. Returning to find Pluto here, for the first time in our lifetime will bring the planets of war and revolution together here, making settling for the status quo impossible.
While you began the year with Saturn and Neptune in your career sector and they have been a team since last March, there is little urgency and the message from the professional gods seems to be to take it slow. While Neptune, the planet of dreams has been in your career sector since 2012 and Saturn, the hard taskmaster of the cosmos since last March, this was the first time in our lifetime that you moved into a new professional year with them together here. Saturn and Neptune are an odd couple, with Neptune a dreamer who makes it hard to keep your feet on the ground while Saturn is so pedantic and such a stickler to the rules that he lacks any imagination.
Yet together Saturn and Neptune are giving you the resolve to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes in order to turn professional dreams into reality. With both not leaving until early 2026, they will be using their first full year together to make 2024 the year that everything starts coming together. Or at least that will be the case once someone comes along and gives them a push after spending the majority of the second half of 2023 in retrograde motion.
They will finally get that push when the Sun returns on 19th February, followed by Mercury on 23rd February. However, it is not until Venus and Mars return next month that the pace will really pick up. Until then, the Moon is helping to keep things active, first through its monthly visit to your work sector from 2nd February to 4th February.
With no planetary activity on the job front since Venus left at the end of last year, this will give you a chance to check in. As the Moon will form a friendly aspect to Saturn and Neptune as it moves through, these should be good days on the job and career fronts. It is a week later that the Moon will return for its last visit to your career sector before the Sun returns from 11th February to 13th February.
This will be one last chance to focus on the big picture before things start to become more active.
Considering that by the time you moved into 2023, there was no more planetary activity in your work sector, just starting the year with Venus, Mercury and the dwarf planet Ceres still here was an advantage and especially as Venus had only returned less than 48 hours earlier. The Sun will always leave your work sector just before Christmas, but Venus' late return and a retrograde turn that saw Mercury return after leaving allowed the planetary activity from last year to spill into the early weeks of this year. However, while starting the year with planetary activity still in your work sector was an advantage, to still have planets here as you move into February is almost unheard of.
While Mercury and Venus both left last month the dwarf planet Ceres is still here, but with her last deep dive into your needs and priorities on the job front finally ending on 8th February. This will bring all planetary activity on the job front until later in the year to an end, but not before what has been an incredible run. It was in the final 10 days of January that Ceres became especially close to the dwarf planet Eris, in her early weeks in direct motion in your career sector.
They were just separating from a friendly aspect when a Full Moon in your income sector late last month helped to energise things across the income, work and career fronts. With Eris, the warrior princess of the cosmos starting to get up to speed and the Sun returning to your career sector next month, the crutch that the planets moving through your work sector have been, is no longer needed. As planetary activity on the job front runs its course, planetary activity on the career front can take over and keep the momentum going on both fronts.
The Moon will make one last visit before Ceres leaves from 4th February to 7th February. As well as giving you an intuitive read on work and job matters, the Moon can act as a trigger for all that has been building since the Sun, Mars and Ceres first got the ball rolling last November. Ceres will be gone by the time the Moon returns to your career sector from 13th February to 15th February, with a chance to check in on the forces that will take it from here.
It is a given that the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of January in your work sector and for the last 15 years you have also begun the year with Pluto, the planet of change, transformation and revolution here as well. Yet as you move into February, they both might be gone but rather than dial back things have dialled up and that includes across the income, work and career fronts. This is something that has broken the normal pattern and it comes just as for the first time in 12 years you have begun the year with Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion in your career sector.
What has kept the momentum going on the job front rather than easing back is partly because Venus and Mercury are running late and are still here. However, this is mainly because Mars is making his first visit in two years and until leaving on 13th February, he is firing things up with the drive to make things happen. Mars began the year here, getting the year off to a busy and impassioned start.
Meanwhile, when Jupiter's direct turn on New Year's Eve meant that he was ready from day one to resume his quest for professional growth and expansion, Uranus was still in retrograde motion. It was only in the last five days of January that everything started to come together quickly, starting with Uranus' direct turn and the releasing of the brakes holding things back, just as a series of friendly aspects between planets across the income, work and career fronts began. Included in that mix is the asteroid Juno, the queen of commitment who instead of leaving your income sector last month turned retrograde and is now here until August.
Mars is just separating from a friendly aspect to Juno as you move into the new month. It is not until Mars leaves your work sector on 13th February and Venus on 17th February that the pace will start to dial back, but with planets keeping things active on the income, work and career fronts for the rest of the year.
Because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of February in your work sector, the solar spotlight will always be on your work situation and job matters at this time of year. However, there is nothing ordinary about what you find when you move into the new month, with everything having changed and the contrast between where things stand now and where they were 12 months ago almost unrecognisable. This time last year Saturn, the hard taskmaster of the cosmos was in your work sector and had been for the last three years, not only making this a potentially challenging but empowering period, but one where there may have been constraints.
Saturn is all about sticking to the rules, paying due diligence and coming back over and over things until you get it right. Saturn left in March and this took much of the pressure off, but this has left you with skills and resilience that you can continue to draw on. You've done the hard work and now there is a chance to start reaping the rewards.
All the Sun has done is put the solar spotlight on work and job matters but it was Pluto, the planet of change, transformation and revolution's return a few hours later that has changed everything. Where Saturn was all about following the rules, Pluto is all about breaking the rules as he commits to spending the next 20 years ushering in change. As you move into the new month the Sun and Pluto have only been here for 10 days, with a chance to get your bearings before Mercury returns on 5th February, Mars on 13th February and Venus on 17th February.
It is between Mercury and Mars' return that the Moon will move through from 9th February to 11th February, creating a New Moon that can give work and job matters the green light. It is when Mars, the warrior planet of the cosmos returns that things will really start to move, for when the planets of war and revolution join forces for the first time here in our lifetime, they won't let you just watch from the sidelines.
While things may have gotten off to a slow start on the job front so far this year, there has been reason for confidence from the start and a chance to benefit from an opportunity to find your feet and get your bearings before the pace picks up. While Neptune, the planet of dreams has been in your work sector since 2012 and Saturn, the hard taskmaster of the cosmos has been here since last March, for the first time in our lifetime you moved into the New Year with both here at the same time. With both not leaving until early 2026, this is the first full year of a nearly three year period that is giving you the resolve to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes to turn dreams into reality on the job front.
However, with both having spent the majority of the second half of last year in retrograde motion and as January was the first month where both were back in direct motion, this has bought you time. By the time the Moon moves through your work sector from 11th February to 13th February Saturn and Neptune will still be on their own, but they will be starting to pick up speed while your instincts are likely to pick up on a sense of change in the air. It is just six days later and with your instincts still sharp that the Sun will return on 19th February.
This is the point in each year when the solar spotlight will always shift onto your work situation and job matters, but this will also be a full circle moment. The Sun was here when Saturn returned last month and has continued to have an influence in the time that it has taken the Sun to come full circle. It is just a few days later that Mercury will return on 23rd February with everything needed to work smarter, get your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open.
Having the Moon move through your career sector from 19th February to 23rd February will ensure your professional instincts are sharp when things start to move on the job front. However, it is when Mars returns next month for his first visit in nearly two years that this will kick off the busiest months of the year. This makes it important to make the most of the relatively slow start to the month.
The early months of 2024 are looking like a series of steps, with each month becoming progressively busier and more active before things peak. It began last month when after spending the second half of last year in retrograde motion, the dwarf planet Eris turned direct in your work sector. This is when the warrior princess of the cosmos came out of hibernation but still at a standstill, this was a chance to start looking to the future without taking steps towards it.
It was in the final days of January that anything stalled was given a push in order to get moving again, thanks to a friendly aspect to planets on the income front and from a Full Moon in your career sector. February is Eris' first full month in direct motion and while this always slow planet was never going to sprint forward, until the dwarf planet Ceres leaves your income sector on 8th February there is a growing sense of support and time to align your income needs and priorities with where things are going on the job front. February is a month for finding your feet but without rushing into anything, knowing that it is when the Sun and Mercury return next month that things will start opening up.
However, it is not until Venus returns in April and Mars in May that the pace will really pick up. From Eris' direct turn last month, each month is going to be another step towards the pinnacle months, which will be May and June, which is when a rush of new planetary activity on the career front will then take over. It is while things are still relatively slow that you have a chance to stay on top of things while giving you time to get the most out of the Moon's monthly visits to your two professional houses.
The Moon will move through your work sector from 13th February to 15th February and through your career sector from 22nd February to 24th February, each time sharpening your instincts while ensuring you are emotionally and intuitively engaged.
Several things happened in the final days of January that have set the scene for an empowered start to the month across the income, work and career fronts, while also setting in motion something that will continue to play out for the rest of the year. Jupiter's direct turn in your work sector on New Year's Eve meant that from day one he was ready to resume his quest for job growth and expansion. However, while there was a lot of support during January from the planets as they passed through your income sector, with Uranus in retrograde motion the brakes were on.
That changed and things very quickly came together in the final five days of January and are still unfolding as you move into the new month. It began with Uranus' direct turn, something that took the brakes off work and job matters. Over the coming days, a friendly aspect between Venus on the income and Jupiter on the job front peaked, another between Mercury and Uranus here peaked and then Mars not only formed a friendly aspect to Uranus as well, but to the asteroid Juno in your career sector.
The latter has just peaked as you move into the new month, but with planets across the income, work and career fronts so tightly entwined and the brakes having just been released on the job front, where one goes, the rest will follow. Because Juno is in her first full month in retrograde motion in your career sector and is barely moving and Uranus has had to come to a standstill in order to turn direct, it is the planets on the income front that are the moving parts bringing everything together. Driving this is Mars, with his departure from your income sector on 13th February and Venus on 17th February the point where Jupiter's quest for job growth and expansion will be getting up to speed, with planets across the income, work and career fronts that are here for all or most of the year acting as support.
The Moon's return to your work sector from 15th February to 17th February and to your career sector from 24th February to 27th February will be important days across the income, work and career fronts.
Starting the month with the Moon in your career sector is more than just a chance to ensure your professional instincts are sharp and you are emotionally and intuitively engaged from the start. While this is an ordinary monthly visit, this second visit for the year will reveal some big changes since it moved through in the early days of the year. While on the career front itself nothing has changed, with the South Node continuing to keep things on track and balanced but without a need to reinvent the wheel.
Instead, when the Moon returns every four weeks this is a chance to check in with your internal compass and your over the horizon radar. The difference this time is not what is happening professionally but financially, with the Moon having returned at the end of last month to find the Sun and Pluto in your income sector. This came just days after they had clashed as a Full Moon, with the Moon's return to your career sector putting them back in harmony while restoring your financial confidence.
The Moon's friendly aspect to both as it moved through has also helped to fuel your professional confidence and with the South Node in your career sector for the whole of 2024 and Pluto in your income sector for the next 20 years, this is the start of an enduring partnership that will be going strong when Jupiter begins your biggest year for job growth and expansion in over a decade in June. You will have a chance to check in on work and job matters when the Moon moves through your work sector from 17th February to 19th February. While at that point Jupiter will still be three months away, your over the horizon radar will be getting wind of the major changes ahead.
Meanwhile, after starting the month in your career sector the Moon will come full circle from 27th February to 29th February. The Moon will end the month how it began, fuelling your professional imagination while boosting your confidence and awareness on the income and career fronts.
With no planetary activity in either of your two professional houses since Venus left your career sector at the end of December and none until the Sun returns to your work sector in June, it is the Moon's monthly visits that are key to keeping things on track and staying emotionally and intuitively engaged on both fronts. This is the norm for this time of year and if anything, the planetary activity on the career front extended much further into 2023 than is normally the case. It was during the final months of last year that Mars made his first visit to your career sector in two years and the dwarf planet Ceres made her first deep dive into your professional needs and priorities in four years.
So while all planetary activity on the career front ended before the year began, it had ended less than 48 hours earlier and after some very active and empowered months. The Moon will return for its second visit to your career sector for the year and since Venus left from 2nd February to 4th February, something that in the early days of the month will fuel your professional instincts and imagination and ensure you are emotionally and intuitively engaged. Because the Moon's first visit for the year was just days after Venus left, at the time you were still processing months of planetary activity, with a lot more clarity by the time the Moon returns on 2nd February.
There will be even more clarity when the Moon returns again on 29th February, where it will see out the month. Meanwhile, it is the timing that is set to make the Moon's monthly visit to your work sector a lot more significant. The Moon's visit to your work sector from 19th February to 22nd February is something that every four weeks can give you an intuitive read on work and job matters, ensure your instincts are sharp and you are emotionally and intuitively engaged while acting as a trigger.
What makes the timing significant is that the Sun is returning to your income sector on 19th February and Mercury on 23rd February to get things moving on the income front.
The new month is getting off to a good start across the income, work and career fronts thanks to events in the final days of January, which in turn were a culmination or a coming together of everything that had been building in 2023. While the Sun left your career sector just before Christmas and Mars a day later, it wasn't before spending much of November and December firing things up on the career front. This also didn't leave your career sector empty, which it had done the previous year.
Instead, held back by a retrograde phase in your work sector earlier in the year Venus was still here and just a few days later Mercury retrograded back in. You also had the dwarf planet Ceres here, making her first deep dive into your professional needs and priorities in four years. While you began January with all three still here, by the time you move into February it is only Ceres left here, with her departure on 8th February ending all planetary activity on the career front until later in the year.
However, what gets the month off to such a good start is that it was just as Ceres had formed a friendly aspect to the dwarf planet Eris, the warrior princess of the cosmos in your income sector that a Full Moon in your work sector formed a friendly aspect to both. This was the first Full Moon since the Sun was last in your work sector but also since Venus' epic four month visit, the longest in our lifetime. A Full Moon can act as a trigger for everything building since then and it came just as Ceres is wrapping up all planetary activity on the career front, but Eris' direct turn last month has given income potential the green light.
Meanwhile, it is having the Moon in your career sector from 4th February to 7th February that will ensure your professional instincts are sharp and you are emotionally and intuitively engaged during Ceres' final days and as she leaves on 8th February. That will leave your two professional houses empty, but with the Moon's return to your work sector from 22nd February to 24th February likely to be a positive few days on the income and job fronts.
