February begins on a familiar note, with you struggling to make even the smallest gains. But don’t be downhearted, since from February 20 onwards, an influx of planets into your sign puts you back at the fulcrum of events. Venus, then Mars and finally the Moon all enter your sign on the same day, joining Uranus a long-term resident and placing four planets in your part of the sky. This is a dynamic mixture that emphasises your relationships and the like of which hasn’t been seen in ages. The Moon stays just a few days, but Venus and Mars remain to enliven your closest associations beyond the end of this month…

april 20 - may 20
Mercury in the uppermost sector of your horoscope throughout much of January and all of February, has you looking again at what you’re trying to achieve and at where life is leading overall. For a number, the focus on your career and professional affairs is particularly prominent, as you review the choices you have made and consider your options for the future. For others the remit is broader and has you thinking about where you are heading, along with whether there are any updates or alterations to your trajectory, it would be wise to include. The answers don’t lie in external circumstances, so much as in yourself now…

The past few years have seen you drifting rather when it comes to your vocational ambitions. To some degree you can blame the distant planet Neptune, a mysterious and amorphous influence it is hard to put your finger on, as befits a gaseous giant that modern science still doesn’t know an enormous amount about. Hopefully, you have a cause that you believe in rather than simply a job, or an interest that allows the free expression of your creative and artistic talents, while you earn a living. In fact, the contribution you make may be your primary motivation, leaving all thought of financial advantage in the background.

Much of February sees you drawn to pastures new, or at least a different vista from what usually greets your gaze. If you’re in a position to take a vacation and enjoy a change of scenery, you’ll find the whole experience proves especially memorable, if you schedule it for the first three weeks of the month. After that a more serious tone prevails and you must consider more pressing and practical matters involving work, your chores and obligations, your responsibilities and health. You still have plenty to learn from others though, especially those from a different background, cultural milieu or far-off region of the world.

july 23 - august 22
With Jupiter in your constellation until next August, it’s important to make the most of any opportunities to broaden your horizons, further your progress or edge a little closer to your dreams. Yet the knack this month is doing so, in such a way as to advance other’s objectives at the same time as your own. The last thing you need to do is leave people feeling you have other interests that concern you more, or that they were only a stepping stone towards your previously stated aims. You may not actually believe that either of these scenarios applies, but the way it looks to everybody else is what you really need to think about…

august 23 - september 22
A number of planets congregate, in the region of your horoscope dealing with other people and that highlights a range of shared involvements. If you are willing to go with the flow, to bring your intuition to the forefront and to trust in the wisdom of the universe, the stage is set for some memorable encounters that show you how greatly the world has changed. But it means being ready to lower your guard, since if you’re always on the defensive it is that much harder for any genuine dialogue to occur. You must follow through your decisions on an interpersonal level and not subsequently change your mind moments later.

september 23 - october 22
Periodically, you need to review your priorities, including those activities that go to constitute your everyday routines. Initially, various pursuits and responsibilities feature for a reason, but over time you may find yourself questioning whether these still serve the same purpose. Times change and it becomes apparent, certain avenues and expectations are a dead end, more or less. Whether this applies to goals, interests, aspirations or even relationships you can console yourself in the knowledge that it’s a natural process. Hanging on to the past only disadvantages you, when everything suggests you ought to let it go.

When people advise you to make hay while the sun shines, they are referring to a proverb with origins in Tudor England. Agriculture is less important than it used to be and no one really means that you ought to cut the grass, let alone dry these clippings out to feed your livestock. It does imply, however, that you should be making the most of any opportunities while they last and hints at the carefree atmosphere that prevails during late summer. Fun and frolics are exactly what the stars have in store this month. Sooner rather than later is an excellent motto, before an unsympathetic reality attempts to curtail your freedom.

november 22 - december 21
The emphasis this month is on your home life and how this correlates with your emotional needs. The circumstances you are living in ideally constitute a direct reflection of what makes you feel comfortable, while any problems that you’re facing form a useful pointer, when it comes to locating underlying issues and getting these resolved. Currently the main bone of contention is the feeling that you need to keep the peace, even if this means your own requirements, coming second to a superficial harmony. Only this scenario so obviously flies in the face of your philosophical principles, it cannot continue very long at all…

december 22 - january 19
Your domestic environment has been unsettled for years. Your home life is often at the bottom of your list of priorities, where it languishes near the regard you pay to certain finer feelings, that lack a tangible correlation in terms of practicalities. Maybe this is why the present state of affairs seems so troublesome, since while to carry on this way might suit you fine, those in your family have other ideas. Though you realise where you’re living is a valuable asset, others need more in terms of emotional fulfilment. You’re feeling undermined and distracted by their demands, yet the only solution is a more balanced situation…

january 20 - february 18
The Sun leaves your sign on February 18, but Mercury remains until the middle of March. This lengthy sojourn in your region of the sky includes a retrograde phase of three weeks, entirely within its confines. Next year also sees Mercury retrograde in your constellation, but not completing its whole cycle there, while a similar situation occurred during last year too. This entire period and Mercury’s motion especially, causes you to question your relationships and what you want, along with how circumstances match these ideals. In short, you don’t have to tolerate unacceptable behaviour. The longer you do, the worse it gets.

february 19 - march 19
A powerful focus on your constellation builds until the middle of the month, by which point five out of ten astrological planets emphasise your sign, joining with Chiron too. Yet the peak of this emphasis is quite fleeting so make the most of it. It’s as if the lens through which you see the world and that filters all your experiences, is due for its annual service. You are called to ensure that it is functioning correctly, both in terms of the impression people have of you and your ideas about them. It is thus the perfect moment for a haircut or to update your wardrobe. Don’t be afraid to embrace a style, you’ve skirted around before…
