Gemini horoscope for February 2024
Moving into February can often be the point when the year really begins. The hype of the New Year and the holiday period is behind us, we have had a chance to get a feel for the influences in play and life is pretty much getting back to normal. Except there will be a sense that 2024 is not the year that first impressions suggested it would be and that things could be a lot more exciting than what it said on the box as you moved into the New Year. As is always the case, the Sun will spend the first three weeks of January in your financial sector and the focus on money matters. With Pluto here since 2008 and Mars making his first visit in two years, even more so than would normally be the case this year.
You also began the year with a lot of focus on your relationships, something that has dialled back but with the dwarf planet Ceres' deep dive into your relationship needs and priorities not ending until 8th February. However, it was just 10 days before moving into February that everything started to change, though with Mars not leaving your financial sector until 13th February and Venus, the planet of money until 17th February, with a chance to take your financial power back continuing. The big change began when the Sun returned to your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery. While the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of February here, it was who he brought with him that has changed everything.
It was just a few hours after the Sun returned that Pluto, the planet of change and transformation returned and while he returned for a few months last year it was after the Sun and faster planets had moved through and he didn't venture past the doorstep. This time, apart from a few weeks later in the year, Pluto is here for the next 20 years and when Mars returns on 13th February to begin his first quest to fuel a passion for adventure in two years, this will see the planets of war and revolution join forces for the first time here in our lifetime. Even when the Sun joins Saturn and Neptune in your career sector on 19th February and Mercury on 23rd February, which is when this professional year will start to take off, the playful, creative and adventurous side of life's fence will just be warming up.
Love & RomanceLast year there was no more planetary activity in your relationship sector as you moved into the New Year and there hadnÃ¢â¬â¢t been since just before Christmas, which more often than not is the case. The Sun will always leave your relationship sector on the December solstice and with Venus and Mercury travelling with the Sun, most of the focus on your relationships is over by the end of the year. 2024 has been the exception, for held back by a retrograde phase earlier last year Venus was still in your relationship sector as you moved into the New Year while Mercury had just retrograded back in a day after the Sun left.
This meant that you began the year with the planets of love and communication in your relationship sector, getting the year off on a positive note on the relationship front. Yet to still have planetary activity in your relationship sector, even though Venus and Mercury both left last month is even rarer and is all because the dwarf planet Ceres is making her first visit in four years. CeresÃ¢â¬â¢ departure on 8th February will finally bring all planetary activity on the relationship front to a close, but not before putting as much into the final days of her deep dive into your relationship needs and priorities as possible.
Helping with that will be having the Moon in your relationship sector from 4th February to 6th February, with a chance to ensure you are emotionally engaged during these final days. Two days later Ceres will be gone and it will be the MoonÃ¢â¬â¢s return every four weeks that will keep you connected until Venus returns in October. If the focus is shifting off your relationships it is shifting onto matters of the heart, with starting the month with the Moon in your romantic sector a taste of things to come. By the time the Moon comes full circle from 27th February to 29th February Venus, the planet of love will have been in an adventurous part of your chart for 10 days, with her return on 17th February starting a mission to bring the spirit of romance and adventure together.
Business & CareerWhile you began the year with Saturn and Neptune in your career sector and they have been a team since last March, there is little urgency and the message from the professional gods seems to be to take it slow. While Neptune, the planet of dreams has been in your career sector since 2012 and Saturn, the hard taskmaster of the cosmos since last March, this was the first time in our lifetime that you moved into a new professional year with them together here. Saturn and Neptune are an odd couple, with Neptune a dreamer who makes it hard to keep your feet on the ground while Saturn is so pedantic and such a stickler to the rules that he lacks any imagination.
Yet together Saturn and Neptune are giving you the resolve to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes in order to turn professional dreams into reality. With both not leaving until early 2026, they will be using their first full year together to make 2024 the year that everything starts coming together. Or at least that will be the case once someone comes along and gives them a push after spending the majority of the second half of 2023 in retrograde motion. They will finally get that push when the Sun returns on 19th February, followed by Mercury on 23rd February. However, it is not until Venus and Mars return next month that the pace will really pick up.
Until then, the Moon is helping to keep things active, first through its monthly visit to your work sector from 2nd February to 4th February. With no planetary activity on the job front since Venus left at the end of last year, this will give you a chance to check in. As the Moon will form a friendly aspect to Saturn and Neptune as it moves through, these should be good days on the job and career fronts. It is a week later that the Moon will return for its last visit to your career sector before the Sun returns from 11th February to 13th February. This will be one last chance to focus on the big picture before things start to become more active.
MoneyBecause the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of each year in your financial sector, the year will always begin with the solar spotlight on money matters but will have shifted off by the time you get to February. However, even though Pluto, who had been in your financial sector since 2008 left on the same day as the Sun, there are not only planets staying on to keep the momentum going but there are more on the way. Two months after returning to your financial sector for what is normally a 14 to 15 day chance to use his smart head for money to get your head in the game and to think on your feet, Mercury is still here as you move into the new month, though is getting ready to leave on 5th February.
At the same time, held back by a retrograde phase last year Venus, the planet of money was late to return to your financial sector and didnÃ¢â¬â¢t return until two days after the Sun and Pluto left. Still in her early days as you move into the new month, until leaving on 17th February Venus will be working to fuel your financial confidence, update your financial desires and expectations and work to turn those desires into reality. Adding to the mix is Mars, with the warrior planet of the cosmosÃ¢â¬â¢ first visit to your financial sector in two years not ending until 13th February. Until then, Mars will be firing up your financial passions and fighting spirit as he gives you the drive and the confidence to take your financial power back.
This is a dream team when it comes to taking charge of money matters, but when they leave this wonÃ¢â¬â¢t leave your financial sector empty, thanks to the dwarf planet CeresÃ¢â¬â¢ return on 8th February. However, CeresÃ¢â¬â¢ focus is less on the money as she returns for her first deep dive into your financial needs and priorities in four years. Ceres will leave the choices and decisions to you, but if you are aware of your financial needs and priorities these will be easier to make. Usually here for three months, a retrograde turn will keep Ceres here until December. Meanwhile, with no planetary activity on the income front, the MoonÃ¢â¬â¢s return to your income sector from 19th February to 21st February can sharpen your nose for money and act as a trigger. With the Sun returning to your career sector on 19th February, the timing couldnÃ¢â¬â¢t be better.
