Money matters are on your mind as four planets move into quixotic Pisces and your 2nd House of Income this month. Action-planet Mars leads the way on February 1, followed by messenger Mercury on February 5, the Sun on February 18 and lucrative Venus on February 25. Economic issues are closely connected to your ideals: If your work aligns with your beliefs, the cash will flow more readily. But if you're stuck in an uninspiring job, being well paid will not be enough to keep you happy and healthy.
Finding a higher purpose and putting more passion into what you do are well worth the effort. If that's impossible in your current situation, looking elsewhere is a good idea. You might find it easier to change directions now, because amicable Venus enters Aquarius and your 1st House of Self on February 1 to make you more appealing to others. An image makeover gives you confidence that infuses your professional and personal life, adding to your charisma.
The intelligent Aquarius New Moon on February 10 empowers you to tackle unfamiliar tasks and take the initiative in relationships. Quicksilver Mercury slips into reverse gear on February 23, turning retrograde in your 2nd House of Resources, where it backpedals until March 17. Reviewing financial records could save you from some costly errors, and reminiscing about the past can revive interest in long-ignored talents.
If you have been overpaying with money, commitment, love or energy, the bill may come due with the exacting Virgo Full Moon that highlights your 8th House of Deep Sharing on February 25. It's time to closely examine what you're receiving from others and to restate your expectations as precisely as you can.
Keep in Mind this Month
The most practical moves for others won't necessarily benefit you. Trust your instincts before following someone else's advice.
Key Dates for Aquarius
SUPER NOVA DAYS
February 6-7: Irresistible You
Brains and personality are a tough combination to beat, and you have both working in your favor now. Charming Venus' slick sextile to innovative Uranus on February 6 enables you to lead people where you want them to go and make them think it's their idea. The imaginative power of cerebral Mercury's conjunction with Neptune, the fantasy planet, inspires you to paint beautiful verbal pictures that help you iron out conflicts with others. Smooth talking, however, is only a temporary bridge to overcome differences, so remember that you must fill in many details before you can turn this dream into reality. Still, a beautiful Venus-Jupiter trine on February 7 is Astrology's most favorable aspect between its two traditional benefic planets. It's bound to lift your spirits and show off your captivating personality -- people will have a hard time refusing your requests! Don't spend all this good will on trivial matters when you can gain acceptance and even support that grows into love and professional admiration.
February 15-16: Eye of the Tiger
You feel physically strong and tremendously productive with two days of friction-free aspects involving muscular Mars. A sextile with powerful Pluto on February 15 and trine with hardworking Saturn on February 16 ensure concentration that permits you to operate at a very high level of efficiency.
