MONTHLY HOROSCOPES by Beverley
GENERAL PLANETARY INFLUENCES FEBRUARY 2012
Hello, I hope you have all enjoyed a positive start to the year, here are February’s horoscopes, where in addition to the usual planetary movement, we have a Leap Year, and another major planetary change, as Neptune a generation planet moves into Pisces, where it will stay for some years, it’s influence will be gradual & long lasting, as outlined below. Don’t forget, the Moon aspects only apply for 1 day, 2 at the most, but affect our ups & downs emotionally.
The Sun is now settled in charismatic, humane, individualistic, unconventional Aquarius, with a more abstract, very independent outlook, & need to expect the unexpected. On 20th February, the Sun moves into compassionate, dreamy Pisces, making us more emotional and sensitive. The Moon starts the Month in defensive, possessive, security conscious Taurus. On 7th February there’s a Full Moon in bossy, exuberant, melodramatic Leo, making us very aware of our effect on other people. On 15th February there’s a Last Quarter Moon in determined, jealous, strong-willed, Scorpio, with possible discontent, or a need to make changes. On 21st February the New Moon is in imperative, magnetic, impulsive Aquarius, with a subjective, possibly self-centred approach. Mercury begins the month in friendly, innovative, quick-thinking Aquarius, with some brilliant ideas, but at times a lack of concentration. On 15th February it moves into instinctive, creative, psychic Pisces, & can make us overly imaginative. Venus remains in emotional, vulnerable, and responsive Pisces, until 9th February, when it moves into ardent, passionate Aries, with an all or nothing approach to partners or emotional matters. Mars remains in detailed, hard-working, practical Virgo, with occasional shyness, or problems taking the initiative. From Wednesday it turns Retrograde, through February, and can ‘trip us up’ so it shows a need to be more careful, & try to avoid extremes if possible. Jupiter remains in generous, sensible, humorous Taurus, for some considerable time, giving a love of life, & creature comforts. Generosity prevails, with a knack for acquiring bargains. Saturn remains in courteous, fair-minded, pleasant, but serious Libra, through most of this coming year, & gives more flexibility, with much work on behalf of the loser. It turns Retrograde on 12th February, giving a need for more privacy, outside influences us more than usual, and a need to beware isolation. Uranus remains in energetic, courageous, self-willed, proud Aries, with rebelliousness, sudden, unexpected events or disruptive emotional matters, distract us away from our usual routine, or help us see things in a new light, and hopefully starts to bring more balance. Neptune moves into sensitive, intuitive Pisces, & can help us gradually develop more empathy, compassion, & build understanding, though remaining realistic, will I feel also be important. The long-term aspects to Neptune will remain the same, as although it has moved into a new sign, it is only by a bit of a degree. Pluto remains in Capricorn for the foreseeable future, showing knowledge gradually acquired on deeper levels, with balance, & more realistic ways of recycling & developing our intuitive knowledge further, to use practically.
