Month of February
After last month's Full Moon in your romantic sector, things are quieter on the romantic front this month, but with the Moon helping to keep the spirit of romance alive when it returns for its second visit for the year from 22nd February to 24th February. This will see the Moon come full circle from last month's Full Moon, with anything triggered then having had time to play out or run its course, ready for a fresh start. Meanwhile, on the relationship front, there is not only a lot more focus but with a lot more support kicking in as the month progresses.
Unlike the one visit that the Moon will make to your romantic sector this month, it will make two visits to your relationship sector, something that is only possible because as a leap year, there are 29 days in February this year. This will give the Moon time to come full circle from starting the month in your relationship sector, where it will help to keep you emotionally and intuitively engaged in the early hours of the month. The Moon will be gone by 2nd January but will come full circle for a second visit from 27th February to 29th February.
It is during that second visit that there will be some noticeable changes in that Venus, Mercury and Mars, the planets of love communication and passion will all be in your friendship sector by then. As the Moon moves through it will form a friendly aspect to each as well as to Pluto, who is now in the first full month of his 20 year visit to your friendship sector. While it is when the Moon moves through that support for friendship and relationship building will be at its peak and you will be more emotionally engaged, with the South Node spending the whole of 2024 in your relationship sector, this will never be too far from the surface.
February is rarely a month where there is any planetary activity on the romantic front and it is usually just the Moon's monthly visits keeping the spirit of romance alive. This year the love gods are doing things differently and it is all because of the asteroid Juno, the queen of commitment who returned to your romantic sector alongside Venus in October, for what should have been a three month visit. It had been four years since Juno was last here, giving you the resolve to follow your heart.
However, from the start the conditions were so favourable that we can't blame Juno for not wanting to leave. It was Juno's retrograde turn last month that means that instead of leaving the queen of commitment is here now until August and in her first full month in retrograde motion, she is holding the doors open to the past and second chances. It was after Juno turned retrograde that Venus, the planet of love made a belated return to an adventurous part of your chart, with a chance for the two to reunite.
It was last October that Venus and Juno returned to your romantic sector within days of each other and while Venus has moved on, Juno is still here and this puts them back in harmony. This has given Venus' mission to bring the spirit of romance and adventure together a smooth passage from the start and with Mars here as well, he is adding his passion to the mix. Mars will leave an adventurous part of your chart on 13th February and Venus on 17th February, but with the dwarf planet Ceres returning on 8th February and not leaving until December, there will be planets keeping the spirit of romance and adventure together all year.
The Moon's return to your romantic sector from 24th February to 26th February as a Full Moon will add to that. With no planetary activity on the relationship front, the Moon will offer a chance to check in from 2nd February to 4th February and again from 29th February.
Last year there was no more planetary activity in your relationship sector as you moved into the New Year and there hadn't been since just before Christmas, which more often than not is the case. The Sun will always leave your relationship sector on the December solstice and with Venus and Mercury travelling with the Sun, most of the focus on your relationships is over by the end of the year. 2024 has been the exception, for held back by a retrograde phase earlier last year Venus was still in your relationship sector as you moved into the New Year while Mercury had just retrograded back in a day after the Sun left.
This meant that you began the year with the planets of love and communication in your relationship sector, getting the year off on a positive note on the relationship front. Yet to still have planetary activity in your relationship sector, even though Venus and Mercury both left last month is even rarer and is all because the dwarf planet Ceres is making her first visit in four years. Ceres' departure on 8th February will finally bring all planetary activity on the relationship front to a close, but not before putting as much into the final days of her deep dive into your relationship needs and priorities as possible.
Helping with that will be having the Moon in your relationship sector from 4th February to 6th February, with a chance to ensure you are emotionally engaged during these final days. Two days later Ceres will be gone and it will be the Moon's return every four weeks that will keep you connected until Venus returns in October. If the focus is shifting off your relationships it is shifting onto matters of the heart, with starting the month with the Moon in your romantic sector a taste of things to come.
By the time the Moon comes full circle from 27th February to 29th February Venus, the planet of love will have been in an adventurous part of your chart for 10 days, with her return on 17th February starting a mission to bring the spirit of romance and adventure together.
While both the Sun and Pluto left your relationship sector last month, this has not taken the focus off your relationships and instead, there are even more planets returning this month. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of January in your relationship sector, with the solar spotlight always on your relationships from the start. For the last 15 years Pluto, the planet of change and transformation has stayed on after the Sun left but instead, this year he left on the same day.
Fortunately, Mercury and Mars were still there and this not only kept the focus on your relationships but shifted the focus onto the planets of communication and passion. They weren't on their own for long, for it was just two days after the Sun and Pluto left that held back by a retrograde phase last year Venus, the planet of love finally returned. This is where things stand at the start of the month, with a dream team comprised of the planets of love, communication and passion as well as having the asteroid Juno, the queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships in your communication sector.
A retrograde turn last month will keep Juno here there until August, by which point Venus will be there and this is set to have long term implications on the relationship front. For while Mercury will leave your relationship sector on 5th February, Mars on 13th February and Venus on 17th February, that won't end all planetary activity on the relationship front. Instead, they will be joined by the dwarf planet Ceres, who will return to begin her first deep dive into your relationship needs and priorities in four years.
Ceres will normally spend three months here, but a retrograde turn means that she won't leave until December. Helping you to embrace this from the start will be having the Moon in your relationship sector from 7th February to 9th February. Meanwhile, making up for having no planetary activity on the romantic front will be having the Moon in your romantic sector from 2nd February to 4th February and then returning on 29th February.
Because the Sun will always spend the majority of the first three weeks of February in your relationship sector, the spotlight is always on your relationships at this time of year. For the last three years, Saturn has been here as well and while he left last March, the Sun is not on his own. Instead, it was just a few hours after the Sun returned last month that Pluto, the planet of change and transformation also returned.
Pluto had returned for a few months last year, but it was after the Sun and faster planets had moved through and as he already had the brakes on in order to turn retrograde and come back out again, this was more a chance to get a look at what changes you might want to make when the time came. That time has come, for Pluto this time doesn't have the brakes on, the Sun has the solar spotlight on your relationships and more planets are returning this month. Apart from an 11 week period where Pluto will retrograde back out later in the year, he is here now for the next 20 years.
The Sun is here until 19th February, so will be here when Mercury returns on 5th February, Mars on 13th February and Venus on 17th February. By the time the Sun leaves the planets of love, communication and passion will have returned to continue the momentum and to support Pluto in the early weeks of a major new relationship chapter. Mercury will leave on 23rd February, with the planet of communication working to do what he does best during his short 18 day visit.
However, unlike Venus and Mars, Mercury will be here when the Moon not only moves through from 9th February to 11th February, but for the New Moon this will create on 10th February. Meanwhile, while not a New Moon, the Moon's return to your romantic sector from 4th February to 6th February couldn't come with better timing. With the dwarf planet Ceres ending all planetary activity on the romantic front until later in the year on 8th February, the Moon will be here to make the final days of her deep dive into your heart's needs and priorities as romantically charged as possible.
While the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of each year in your romantic sector, this means that it will have already moved through by the time you reach February and often Venus and Mercury, who travel with the Sun will have left as well. Since his return in 2008, even though the Sun will always be gone by the end of January, Pluto has stayed on to keep the momentum going. The fact that Pluto left a few hours after the Sun meant that this could have left your romantic sector empty.
Instead, the most romantically charged weeks were and still are in front of you, for the Sun and Pluto not only left Mercury and Mars behind but at that stage, Venus had yet to return. Venus returned two days after the Sun and Pluto left, something that with Mars making his first visit in two years has brought the planets of love and passion together. While Mercury will continue to work to give your heart a voice and to put heart and mind on the same page until leaving on 5th February, with Mars not leaving your romantic sector until 13th February and Venus until 17th February, they will keep working to make these some of the most romantically charged weeks of the year.
Meanwhile, the Moon's return from 7th February to 9th February will make these some of the most romantically charged days of the month. What makes the timing of the Moon's return is that these romantically charged lunar vibes will be in effect when the dwarf planet Ceres returns on 8th February to begin her first deep dive into your heart's needs and priorities in four years. Normally here for three months, this was always going to keep the momentum going even after Venus leaves on 17th February, but a retrograde turn is going to keep Ceres here until December, by which point even the Sun will have returned.
This will keep your romantic sector active for the whole of 2024. Meanwhile, things are starting the stir on the relationship front, with the Moon's return from 7th February to 9th February a chance to check in. However, it is on 19th February that the Sun and on 23rd February that Mercury, the planet of communication will join Saturn and Neptune here.
The month begins with the Sun and Pluto still on their own and still settling into their early days in your romantic sector. While the Sun will already return at the same time each year and the solar spotlight will always be on matters of the heart during the majority of the first three weeks of February having Pluto, planet of change and transformation here is a game changer. While Pluto did spend a few months here in 2023, it was after the Sun and the faster planets had moved through and as he turned retrograde shortly after arriving, he never ventured past the doorstep.
This was more a chance to get a sense of the changes that would come in 2024. That time has come and apart from a short 11 week break later in the year, Pluto is here now until 2044. As you move into the new month this is something you are still adjusting to and some of the most romantically charged months of the year are still in front of you.
Things will become more real or active when Mercury returns on 5th February to begin his short 18 day mission to give your heart a voice and to put heart and mind on the same page. This is in preparation for Mars' return on 13th February and Venus' return on 17th February. It is two days before the Sun leaves on 19th February that the planets of love and passion will come together to kick off the most romantically charged months of 2024.
Before then, the Moon will make its first visit to your romantic sector since the Sun and Pluto's return from 9th February to 11th February, creating a New Moon here on 10th February that will bring an opportunity for new beginnings and to officially embrace this new romantic chapter. It is a few days later that the Moon will return for its monthly visit to your relationship sector, something that from 13th February to 15th February will be a chance to become more emotionally engaged. With both planets in your relationship sector now in direct motion, here too this is a chance to look to the future.
With Saturn in direct motion in your romantic sector since November and Neptune since December, by the time you moved into the New Year, you were ready to look to the future, but also willing to wait. While January was the first full month where both planets in your romantic sector were now back in direct motion, they weren't up to full speed and until the Sun and the faster planets began to return, they were in no hurry. This allowed you to move into the future with confidence and a lack of pressure, knowing that when it comes to matters of the heart things are in safe hands while you had time to attend to other areas of your life.
While that is still the case as you move into the new month, by the time the Moon returns to your romantic sector from 11th February to 13th February your heart's over the horizon radar will be picking up on the changes ahead. It is just six days after the Moon leaves that the Sun will return on 19th February, something that at this time each year will always turn the solar spotlight onto matters of the heart and all things romantic. It is five days later that Mercury, the planet of communication will return on 23rd February to begin his mission to give your heart a voice and to put heart and mind on the same page.
With Venus and Mars, the planets of love and passion returning next month, things are just starting to heat up by then. Meanwhile, while Jupiter turned direct in your relationship sector on New Year's Eve, it was only late last month that Uranus turned direct here as well, finally cutting the cords to the past. With Mercury in your communication sector until 5th February, Mars until 13th February and Venus until 17th February, as the planets of communication, love and passion they are on hand to ensure the communication lines open as things start to move forward on the relationship front.
Helping to get the most out of this and especially out of the final days of Venus' mission to give your heart and your relationships a voice will be the Moon's return to your relationship sector from 15th February to 17th February.
While this is not an overly active month on either the romantic or relationship fronts, there is every reason for confidence and just the right amount of support. It was the dwarf planet Eris, the warrior princess of the cosmos' direct turn in your romantic sector last month that brought matters of the heart out of hibernation and with Venus, the planet of love in Sagittarius at the time, this has helped to get things moving. However, with still not up to full speed, the Sun not returning to your romantic sector until next month and Venus not until early April, things are still on a slow burn.
However, with the Moon moving through from 13th February to 15th February and aligning with Eris as it moves through, this brings the potential for a romantically charged Valentine's Day. Meanwhile, while there is no planetary activity in your relationship sector, you have the next best thing and the timing couldn't be better. The next best thing is the amount of planetary activity on the communication front and how this will be just starting to build and will still be gathering strength when Jupiter and the other planets start returning to your relationship sector in May.
The month begins with the Sun and Pluto on their own in your communication sector, but they will be joined by Mercury on 5th February, Mars on 13th February and Venus on 17th February. By the time the Sun leaves on 19th February the planets of communication, love and passion will be there to keep the momentum going. Taking full advantage of this will be the Moon's return to your relationship sector from 17th February to 19th February.
With Venus returning on 17th February and the Sun leaving on 19th February, the Moon will manage to return and ensure you are emotionally engaged during the only 48 hour period this year when every planet that will visit your communication sector this year are all here at the same time. The Moon will return to your relationship sector a few hours before Venus returns to begin her mission to give your heart and your relationships a voice and will leave just before the Sun leaves your communication sector on 19th February.
The impact from Venus' retrograde phase in mid 2023 is still being felt, for while she is back to full speed she has yet to catch up and pass the Sun. This means that Venus was late to return to Capricorn and instead of returning with the Sun in December, as she will often do, she didn't return until after the Sun left last month. This means that as Venus is not only still in Capricorn as you move into February but is still in her early days here, the planet of love won't leave until 17th February.
It was during the last weekend of January that Venus moved into a friendly aspect to Jupiter in your romantic sector, bringing the planets of love and luck together here for the first time in 12 years. Jupiter had turned direct on New Year's Eve, but it wasn't until just as Venus and Jupiter were coming together late last month that Uranus turned direct in your romantic sector, giving matters of the heart and the green light just as the planets of love and luck joined forces. With Mars in Capricorn until 13th January, Venus is also feeding off his passion to make this one of the most romantically charged months of the year.
In a case of perfect timing, the Moon will move through your romantic sector from 15th February to 17th February. As the Moon moves through it will align with Jupiter and Uranus, with these romantically charged lunar vibes helping you to get the most out of Venus' final days in Capricorn. With the Moon and Venus both leaving on 17th February, it is not Valentine's Day but the days immediately afterwards that will be some of the most romantically charged days of an already romantically charged month.
This can also ignite Jupiter's final hours in your romantic sector and while he will leave in May, Uranus is here for the rest of the year, with what Venus can achieve before leaving set to have a flow on effect. Meanwhile, with no planetary activity in your relationship sector, the Moon's return from 19th February to 22nd February will be a valuable chance to check in.
This is a month of two halves as far as Venus, the planet of love is concerned and the impact that she will have on matters of the heart. That line dividing the month in two isn't drawn down the middle and instead is two events on 17th February that make this a month of two halves. It was two days after you moved into your birthday month and new solar year last month that Venus returned to a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart.
This was the start of a nostalgic trip down love's memory lane that will end with her return to Aquarius on 17th February and this is what is putting the focus on the past. The closer you get to the middle of the month the stronger a sense of both romantic nostalgia and anticipation is likely to become. As a nostalgic trip down love's memory lane draws to a close a sense of romantic nostalgia is likely to deepen, but as Venus is also drawing closer to Aquarius by the day, so too will a sense of anticipation.
Two events on 17th February will flip the switch and they both happen within the space of just a few hours. The first is Venus' return to Aquarius, something that will bring a nostalgic trip down love's memory lane to an end and offer a chance for new beginnings. The second is the Moon's return to your romantic sector, with romantically charged lunar vibes from 17th February to 19th February getting Venus' return off to a good start.
What is significant about this is that this is an omen or a portent for the future, for it is just over three months later that Jupiter will return to your romantic sector to begin your luckiest year for love in over a decade. With Venus returning to update your romantic and relationship desires and expectations for the coming year, this will get things off to an auspicious start, with just a small taste of things to come. It is also during Venus' early days in Aquarius that the Moon will make its only visit to your relationship sector while she is here from 22nd February to 25th February.
As Venus is here to update your romantic and relationship desires and expectations, both these visits are important.
This shouldn't be an especially active month on the romantic or relationship fronts and apart from the Moon's monthly visits, there should be no planetary activity on either front. While that is the case on the romantic front, making the Moon's return to your romantic sector from 19th February to 22nd February something to be embraced, it is a different story on the relationship front. It was last October and just a few days after being held back by a retrograde phase Venus finally returned to your relationship sector, that the asteroid Juno, the queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships returned for her first visit in four years.
Juno will normally spend three months here, which means that she should have left last month. However, a retrograde turn will keep Juno here until August, by which point Venus will be back in time to take over. In retrograde motion, this is putting the focus on the past, but Juno has nothing like the weight of a full sized planet without holding things back.
What is making this especially important is the support that Juno is getting from Jupiter and Uranus in your communication sector and from Mercury, Venus and Mars, the planets of communication, love and passion in your friendship sector. From the start, there is support for friendship and relationship building and from the communication gods and that will only continue. This will be on full display when the Moon moves through your communication sector from 15th February to 17th February and again when it moves through your relationship sector from 24th February to 27th February.
With planetary activity in your communication, friendship and relationship sectors for the whole of 2024, this is the month when the real bond between the three is being created. Meanwhile, it is on 17th February that Venus, the planet of love will return to a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart to take your heart on a nostalgic trip down love's memory lane that will end with her return to Pisces next month, just as Juno is holding the doors open to the past on the relationship front.
