Ideas can take you anywhere
Say it with love
Cosmic order that dream!
You start the month with Mercury retrograde in its ruling 3rd house. But this is a retro like no other as you know, thanks to ruler Jupiter. More on this shortly. What you need to do this month is broadcast yourself. Because whether you realise it or not, you have an audience waiting to listen.
You have a crowd of planets in your Now Age house. Venus from the 1st joins the Sun, Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn making five. When the new Moon arrives on the 11th this brings the total to a stellium of six! Now let’s talk you and your ideas. Venus’s meeting with Saturn in here on the 6th simply adds structure and power behind them. Just take it that what you say makes sense to whomever you say it to. So, think about that interview, pitch, proposal, big talk or even roping in others to act as your messengers. Because they will get behind your ideas now.
Entrepreneurship, business, commerce and the internet could all feature. Find ways to work your brand, website, social media feed and all you may have to offer professionally. This is also a wonderful time to be studying (or apply for that course), send out that manuscript, finish that thesis, collate that portfolio.
Explore Bigger Possibilities
Success could come door-knocking this month and positive answers could be heading your way. Your work load could also increase but you not only welcome this – there could be the knock-on effect with your finances. Just be aware that some people may not be as happy things are moving forward for you as you would like or expect. Also, some of your ideas may challenge people whose mind-set is stuck in the past. It’s honestly not worth expending your time and energy trying to sway them either! Instead focus on all the people who DO want to hear what you have to say.
Days to be aware of this kind of resistance are on the 1st when the Sun in your 3rd squares off against a rather stuck and snarky Mars in your 6th. Don’t butt heads with bosses or authority figures on this day. If you bide your time and re-present your case or idea slightly differently, you may get an entirely different outcome on the 19th when Venus makes the same angle.
Reviving, revising or reapplying for something is also favoured on the 8th when the Sun and Mercury retro meet. As well as the 13th when Mercury aligns to Venus. News you have been waiting on could arrive.
Your real ‘star date’ of the month is the 11th however. This is a day of new beginnings and when goals can be launched or even realised. It is the day when Venus meets ruler Jupiter in here as well as the New Moon which marks the start of the Chinese New Year of the Ox. So, this is an important time on every level for new beginnings.
Tune in and ask the universe for a panoramic snapshot of what your future can be now. Tap into the realm of your ideas and where they could take you. But don’t leave them there! You need to be doing something with them. By meditating on just where they could take you at this time, you will tune into added inventiveness and guidance. If people’s names or even those of organisations pop into your head, make a note then do your due diligence and act after Mercury heads direct again on the 21st.
Cosmic Order Your Love!
Lucky you, Sag as this Valentine’s Day comes with a Hallmark card just for you. Retroactive Mercury meets ruler Jupiter exactly on this day. Cupid could go crazy just for you but Valentine’s could be about more than just cards and flowers. We have a super-conjunction in your 4th of long-term emotional satisfaction between the Moon (which rules this house), powerful Ceres and Cupido. Yes, the Valentine’s dude himself with his bow and arrow!
All three will square the Galactic Centre in your 1st. Now, the Galactic Centre does not move. Our entire galaxy spins around it. You might want to check your chart for where your Sag factors are. Do you have anything at 26 degrees which is where it is? If so, expect this V-Day to be especially significant for you. If you are unsure, one of our astrologers will be happy to help you.
Astrologers are now beginning to embrace the importance of the Galactic Centre in our charts. Its gravity is so powerful it is literally ‘the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart’. In other words, our entire galaxy spins around it! At its heart is a supermassive black hole. This is where the laws of time
and space break down. What is impossible or improbable becomes the opposite in fact. So, is it time to think about what has been out of reach when it comes to love or even success, Sag? Visualise yourself casting your cosmic order into the heart of the galaxy – and knowing something will come back for you.
A new deal on love, children, parenting or the talent that makes you stand out and shine could be just one thing you’ll receive when Ceres arrives in your 5th on the 21st. The same day as Mercury finally heads direct once more. The Sun (18th) and Venus (25th) are also now on the move into your 4th of home, living arrangement, family matters and what you need to sustain you over the long term.
Property and career matters will be in focus and you could experience positive change around these. Or even the resources at your disposal. Especially when Mars in your 6th trines Pluto, the only slow-moving planet left in your money zone, also on the 25th. This could literally see you bank the rewards of those ideas or what you have been ‘sending out’, Sag!
The full Moon of the 27th shines out from your 10th of career and status and fellow mutable sign of Virgo. This Moon is known as the ‘Snow Moon’ – although January’s full Moon is sometimes also called that. It is called the ‘Hunger Moon’ by some native cultures owning to the fact that food was in short supply. February in Romani tradition is called ‘Little black month’ – a reference to its short duration and also the winter depths. We are however now a month away from the spring equinox so remember that.
So, wrap up those ideas now. Make your pitch and bring any career matters to some kind of completion or to a key stage if you can. Above all under this full Moon, be professional and project an air of someone who knows what they are talking about and what outcome they are after. You should see those ideas bring you a brand new beginning on some level this month, Sag. Spring could just come early for you.
In a nutshell: Ruler Jupiter acts as Fat Cupid this Valentine’s month, Sag. Doors open to opportunities. Love and other big ideas propel you forward into something bigger and more heart-starting. Aim higher!
