This is a month that may be rich with professional opportunities, but it also comes with some potential pitfalls. On February 1, active Mars enters Pisces and your 10th House of Career, which should provide more push for initiating projects and taking on new responsibilities. But Mars slips on the banana peel of dreamy Neptune on February 4, which can drain your energy or misdirect your efforts. While inspiration is a plus here, the risk of chasing a rainbow that leads you nowhere is also present.
On February 5, your cerebral ruling planet Mercury follows the same path by entering Pisces and your 10th House of Career. Work-related communications may be spiced with creativity, but managing data and details can become more challenging. Minds wander and messages may be muddled if not handled very carefully.
Mercury's union with Neptune on February 6 spurs cloudy thinking as fantasy tends to overcome reality. In fact, the messenger planet will be an issue all month as it slows down when approaching its retrograde point on February 23. Sticking to facts and double-checking data and critical communications will help avoid the pitfalls of misunderstanding and errors that are possible throughout February and March.
Still, the Sun's entry into Pisces and your 10th House of Career on February 18 can raise your professional profile. Sociable Venus does the same on February 25, making you more popular and appealing. Just keep your feet solidly on the ground and don't let unfounded hopes cut you off from the logic you need to do your job.
