Today's Horoscope This week This month
Aquarius horoscope for February 2024
By the time you move into the new month the Sun and Pluto, the planet of change and transformation have only been in Aquarius for 10 days, but already it is clear that this will be no ordinary year. The Sun will always return to begin your birthday month and new solar year three weeks into the year so will always spend the majority of February here. However, while for the last three years, you have moved into your birthday month with Saturn, the hard taskmaster of the cosmos here and the challenges and hard asks that this required moving into a new three decade long Saturn cycle, Pluto is a very different planet. Saturn is a planet that sticks to the rules and like a drill sergeant, this has helped you to take your power back and train for the future.
This has left you with a huge amount of resilience and gone since March, a chance to take a break from his overbearing influence. If Saturn is the keeper of rules, then Pluto is the breaker of rules and as he begins a 20 year transit through Aquarius, there is a chance to use the last three years as the baseline for the rest of your life. Pluto returned for a few months last year, but after the Sun and the other planets had moved through and he only ever got as far as the doorstep. Having returned just a few weeks after Saturn left, Pluto gave you a chance to observe the changes you might want to make but it was too soon and the timing wasn't right.
Returning within the first few hours of your birthday month and new solar year Pluto, the planet of change, transformation and rebellion has chosen the perfect moment. It is when Mars returns on 13th February that the planets of war and revolution will meet up for the first time in Aquarius in our lifetime and with it a chance to embrace the things that excite you. Mercury will move through from 5th February to 23rd February and Venus will return on 17th February to give your heart a voice. This will leave behind a team that can keep the momentum going when the Sun leaves on 19th February, bringing your birthday month to a close but joining Saturn and Neptune in your income sector to get this professional year moving.
Love & RomanceThis is a month of two halves as far as Venus, the planet of love is concerned and the impact that she will have on matters of the heart. That line dividing the month in two isnÃ¢â¬â¢t drawn down the middle and instead is two events on 17th February that make this a month of two halves. It was two days after you moved into your birthday month and new solar year last month that Venus returned to a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart. This was the start of a nostalgic trip down loveÃ¢â¬â¢s memory lane that will end with her return to Aquarius on 17th February and this is what is putting the focus on the past. The closer you get to the middle of the month the stronger a sense of both romantic nostalgia and anticipation is likely to become.
As a nostalgic trip down loveÃ¢â¬â¢s memory lane draws to a close a sense of romantic nostalgia is likely to deepen, but as Venus is also drawing closer to Aquarius by the day, so too will a sense of anticipation. Two events on 17th February will flip the switch and they both happen within the space of just a few hours. The first is VenusÃ¢â¬â¢ return to Aquarius, something that will bring a nostalgic trip down loveÃ¢â¬â¢s memory lane to an end and offer a chance for new beginnings. The second is the MoonÃ¢â¬â¢s return to your romantic sector, with romantically charged lunar vibes from 17th February to 19th February getting VenusÃ¢â¬â¢ return off to a good start.
What is significant about this is that this is an omen or a portent for the future, for it is just over three months later that Jupiter will return to your romantic sector to begin your luckiest year for love in over a decade. With Venus returning to update your romantic and relationship desires and expectations for the coming year, this will get things off to an auspicious start, with just a small taste of things to come. It is also during VenusÃ¢â¬â¢ early days in Aquarius that the Moon will make its only visit to your relationship sector while she is here from 22nd February to 25th February. As Venus is here to update your romantic and relationship desires and expectations, both these visits are important.
Business & CareerWith no planetary activity in either of your two professional houses since Venus left your career sector at the end of December and none until the Sun returns to your work sector in June, it is the Moon's monthly visits that are key to keeping things on track and staying emotionally and intuitively engaged on both fronts. This is the norm for this time of year and if anything, the planetary activity on the career front extended much further into 2023 than is normally the case. It was during the final months of last year that Mars made his first visit to your career sector in two years and the dwarf planet Ceres made her first deep dive into your professional needs and priorities in four years.
So while all planetary activity on the career front ended before the year began, it had ended less than 48 hours earlier and after some very active and empowered months. The Moon will return for its second visit to your career sector for the year and since Venus left from 2nd February to 4th February, something that in the early days of the month will fuel your professional instincts and imagination and ensure you are emotionally and intuitively engaged. Because the Moon's first visit for the year was just days after Venus left, at the time you were still processing months of planetary activity, with a lot more clarity by the time the Moon returns on 2nd February.
There will be even more clarity when the Moon returns again on 29th February, where it will see out the month. Meanwhile, it is the timing that is set to make the Moon's monthly visit to your work sector a lot more significant. The Moon's visit to your work sector from 19th February to 22nd February is something that every four weeks can give you an intuitive read on work and job matters, ensure your instincts are sharp and you are emotionally and intuitively engaged while acting as a trigger. What makes the timing significant is that the Sun is returning to your income sector on 19th February and Mercury on 23rd February to get things moving on the income front.
MoneyWhile there is planetary activity on both sides of the financial fence and this is lopsided, what one side lacks in pulling power it makes up for in terms of tenacity and by having friends in high places. She might be an asteroid but Juno, the queen of commitment is holding her own as she moves into her first full month in retrograde motion in your financial sector. Juno returned for what is normally a three month visit in October, something that allowed you to move into the New Year with your financial resolutions set. However, instead of leaving a retrograde turn last month will keep Juno here until August, something that will make it easier to stick to those resolutions.
Support from Jupiter and from the planets moving through an intuitive and imaginative part of your chart is also helping to boost your financial confidence. On the other side of the sky are Saturn and Neptune, who together are making 2024 the year where you have the resolve to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes in order to turn income dreams into reality. This is the year that you have been preparing for since Neptune, the planet of dreams first returned in 2012. However, both are happy to wait for the faster planets to get things moving. That process will start when the Sun returns on 19th February and Mercury on 23rd February with the smart head for money needed to get your head in the game and to think on your feet.
However, it is when Mars and Venus, the planets of drive and money return next month that the most lucrative months of 2024 will begin, giving you plenty of time. Meanwhile, while there is no active competition between the two sides of the financial fence when the Moon moves through your income sector from 11th February to 13th February and through your financial sector from 24th February to 26th February, it will clash with the planets on the other side of the financial fence. That will be especially so when the Moon not only moves through your financial sector, but a clash with the Sun in his early days in your income sector will create a Full Moon on 25th February.
