Your gung ho, go-for-it attitude is admirable, but it might not be the best way to advance your professional interests this month. Coming on strong is often a way to get attention for yourself and your ideas, but a gentler touch is recommended now. Mars, the pushy planet of action, enters sensitive Pisces and your 4th House of Roots on February 1. Being less direct and forceful will make you more effective with others and help you avoid irritating insecure individuals.
In fact, the personal work you do in private can be especially valuable this month. Tending to your home, family and inner needs might not seem like much of a career move, but it can shore up the foundation upon which you build your future. Mental Mercury also enters Pisces on February 5, increasing creative thinking but complicating matters of detail. Think carefully before taking on new projects and double-check any critical information you share with others.
Saying too much, going too far and being overloaded with data are possibilities on February 9-10, when Mercury and Mars form challenging squares with your expansive ruling planet Jupiter. If your statements are impractical or activities too ambitious, it's better to back up and make adjustments now than to exhaust yourself or lose your credibility by trying to live up to them.
The Sun's square with Jupiter on February 25 coincides with the Virgo Full Moon in your 10th House of Career. This is one more signal to rein in extravagance in order to concentrate on your immediate obligations.
