In the meantime, the faster planets have moved on and while Venus left an adventurous part of your chart last month, the Sun and Mercury have returned to continue what she began. The same will happen when Venus leaves your career sector on 8th February, with Mercury returning on 4th February and the Sun on 19th February to once again continue what she began. With professional matters in safe hands, the Moon returns to your friendship sector, the most social and serendipitous part of your chart on 8th May and the timing couldn’t be better.
It was Mars’ return in the New Year that has allowed the warrior planet of the cosmos to take up from where they left off. Knowing what you want from your relationships and what they need from you and with Jupiter having already created a path forward, the first 16 days of the month are all about fighting to put your relationships on the path they will continue on. It is Mars’ departure that will end all planetary activity in your relationship sector for the first time since October 2018 and this is when the real journey will begin. A Full Moon in your communication sector on 9th February will be a timely opportunity to ensure the communication lines are open.
This year this stage got off to an early start with Venus’ return last month and until leaving on 8th February, she will work to fuel your professional confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction. It is not until Mercury returns that you will need to get your head in the game and your feet on the ground, as the focus on the ‘what’ moves to the next phase, that of focusing on the ‘when, where and how’. An overlap, when Venus and Mercury are both here at the same time, will bring a chance to have both heart and head in the game from 4th February to 8th February. Mercury will normally spend 14 to 15 days giving you the intellectually savvy edge and articulation needed to get your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open.
The last of the faster planets only left on 31st January, with 1st February the first day when the real journey begins.
