Horoscopes: February 2nd thru the 9th

Posted by Lauren on February 1, 2018 at 9:15 PM



For the week of February 2nd thru the 9th, be sure to read your Rising Sign as well (if you know it):


Aries

The eclipses usually involve two sets of houses, or two departments of our lives. This is especially so with the Lunar Eclipse which just passed, which often reveals a conflict. With Aries that conflict arises through an understanding of the ways that you might compromise your own individuality, or what makes you unique in order to fit in with the group. In this case, for Aries, it is that thing that makes you unique: your style, your point of view, your opinions; and what makes you a valuable asset to the community. Understanding this, will give you greater confidence, and the courage of your convictions. All the more so, now that your ruling planet Mars is traveling in the sign of Sagittarius. It could feel like you are being inundated with information over the weekend. See if you can step back in order to make some sense of it. There could be something both valuable and illuminating being offered, that could benefit not only yourself, but others as well.


Taurus

The eclipses usually involve two sets of houses, or two departments of our lives. This is especially so with the Lunar Eclipse which just passed, which often reveals a conflict. For Taurus the conflict could present between your personal obligations and responsibilities, vs. the expectations of the outer world, which during the eclipse season could even feel a little chaotic at times. With Leo on your Solar/Natal 4th House, home and family, your personal life are key areas at this time. And eclipses in this sector can bring some sort of change or even a crisis to bear. However, the aim is to try and balance the needs of your personal life, with the demands of career, or any other responsibilities in the outer world for that matter. Avoid over-extending yourself over the weekend. You can’t be all things to all people. You will also want to reserve your energy and resources for the week ahead, which could bring an unexpected, but pleasant surprise or diversion.


Gemini

The eclipses usually involve two sets of houses, or two departments of our lives. This is especially so with the Lunar Eclipse which just passed, which often reveals a conflict. For Gemini this conflict could present between your own world view, and the beliefs and views of others. It may be that your senses, what you are seeing and hearing, seems to conflict with what others seem to believe. In this case there is something to be said with trusting your own senses, and being able to parse out what is really going on, as opposed to the ways that you are being influenced by others in choosing what to believe or not believe. All the more so over the weekend, when there will be quite a bit of information flying around. Try to step back in order to make sense of all of it, and see how what you are learning could benefit not only yourself, but others as well.


Cancer

The eclipses usually involve two sets of houses, or two departments of our lives. This is especially so with the Lunar Eclipse which just passed, which often reveals a conflict. With Cancer that can present as a conflict between your needs and the needs of others. It could also present as a conflict concerning resources, and whether or not how you are valued is secure and fully appreciated. Where the eclipses occur in your Solar/Natal chart are always significant for Cancer, even if you don’t have sensitive points in Leo or Aquarius, this is because Cancer is ruled by the Moon, and so are always sensitive to the vagaries of the Moon. And now with the Eclipses in Leo/Aquarius issues surrounding money, survival, priorities and making sure that your needs are secured will be reevaluated.


Leo

The eclipses usually involve two sets of houses, or two departments of our lives. This is especially so with the Lunar Eclipse which just passed, which often reveals a conflict. For Leo that falls in the department of relationships, and your attitude towards them in general. With the North Node currently in Leo, you are being asked to pay attention to your own self-development, personal integrity and individuality. If these have been compromised in any way, then you are less likely to tolerate it during these critical eclipse periods. This includes the ways that you may have been thrown off course by others through their own lack of boundaries, or a lack of ethical behaviors. Ultimately, you have to decide what or whom you wish to associate with, and what you want to represent. In some way you are being asked to be an example for others to follow. And the choices that go with that are key.


Virgo

The eclipses usually involve two sets of houses, or two departments of our lives. This is especially so with the Lunar Eclipse which just passed, which often reveals a conflict. With Virgo that conflict could be between what your body needs and what your soul needs on the inner more hidden planes. A lot of the expectations of work, daily routines, and trying to keep yourself healthy, nourished and focused, can also be a distraction from those things that you need to do in order to nourish your soul. This inner well-being is key for Virgo with these series of eclipses. However, there is also an understanding of the critical Mind/Body connection here, and how each impact on each other. And finding ways to achieve serenity and inner peace and well-being will be helpful in accomplishing this. How could you change up diet, routine or exercise in order to support that goal? What sort of mindfulness programs or exercises can you incorporate into your daily routine, in order to achieve this inner sort of well-being?


Libra

The eclipses usually involve two sets of houses, or two departments of our lives. This is especially so with the Lunar Eclipse which just passed, which often reveals a conflict. With Libra the conflict could be between your own individual self-expression and personal identity, and how that impacts on, and may conflict with group expectations and needs. With Leo in your Solar/Natal 11th House, it is not unusual for Libra to take on roles of leadership within their groups. The question is, how can you be a leader who takes into consideration all the needs of the group, without having to sacrifice your own integrity and individual point of view? This week could feel like you are being stretched beyond your limits, as your ruling planet, Venus, squares off with Jupiter, the planet of abundance this weekend. There can, indeed, be too much of a good thing. Be mindful of your resources, whether those resources are your money, your time or energy and use them wisely, so you don’t waste them. You will want them as we move into the week, and are confronted with new and perhaps creatively inspiring opportunities.


Scorpio

The eclipses usually involve two sets of houses, or two departments of our lives. This is especially so with the Lunar Eclipse which just passed, which often reveals a conflict. With Scorpio the conflict could be between your personal needs, and your more public role and expectations from others. In fact, a family issue, or changes in your home and family, could take all the air out of the room. Yet with Leo in your Solar/Natal 10th House Scorpio may be asked to take on a leading role, either in work, or in the community, which could at times feel quite conflicting. Balancing these are key, but at times, such as this coming week, it could feel a little stretched. Part of this is because you are feeling excited and positive about the future. And that is a good thing! Be mindful, however, in order to avoid excesses, or to avoid exaggerating a situation out of proportion.


Sagittarius

The eclipses usually involve two sets of houses, or two departments of our lives. This is especially so with the Lunar Eclipse which just passed, which often reveals a conflict. With Sagittarius that can present with a conflict between the way you see things, and how others may perceive things to be true. The key during the Eclipse season is how, and in which ways, can you reconcile your beliefs and understanding in the outer world, with your own understanding? With Leo in the 9th House of your Solar/Natal chart, expanding your world view (and the ways that you fit into that) are key for Sagittarius. Could be feeling energized and busy this week, now that Mars is in your sign. It also means that you should be able to get a lot done. Could be a lot of information coming at you over the weekend. Things could be moving swiftly. See if you can step back and make some sense of all of it.


Capricorn

The eclipses usually involve two sets of houses, or two departments of our lives. This is especially so with the Lunar Eclipse which just passed, which often reveals a conflict. With Capricorn that can present as a conflict between your resources and values, and those of others. Eclipses in Leo and Aquarius put a spotlight on which resources are under your control, and which are not. It can be more than that, because what we are also talking about here are priorities and values. And recognizing that you may not share the same priorities that others do, is key in trying to understand how you, what you do, or what you have to offer is valued by others. This also includes the idea of how you can market yourself, or what you do, without having to necessarily compromise what makes you unique and different. And sometimes these Leo/Aquarius eclipses can merely be about learning how to receive: whether that means being able to accept a compliment, or an offer, or payment in kind.


Aquarius

The eclipses usually involve two sets of houses, or two departments of our lives. This is especially so with the Lunar Eclipse which just passed, which often reveals a conflict. With Aquarius the conflict could present in your relationships with others and the outside world. When Eclipses occur in your own sign, which the upcoming Solar Eclipse will be on the 15th, it can present in some sort of shift or change in your life. And with the North Node in Leo, it could feel like the impetus for change comes from some sort of external force or individual. It may appear that way, but actually these Leo/Aquarius eclipses are times in which you are ready for some sort of change in your life, and the Universe is accommodating in some way. Flexibility is key here. And you don’t want to overdo things, however there is something egging you on to step outside of your accustomed way of doing things. A sudden, but exciting encounter could appear out of left field. It could leave just as fleetingly, but the experience in and of itself could be both inspiring and enlightening at the same time.


Pisces

The eclipses usually involve two sets of houses, or two departments of our lives. This is especially so with the Lunar Eclipse which just passed, which often reveals a conflict. With Pisces that conflict could be between what your body needs and what your soul needs on the inner planes. With Leo/Aquarius eclipses it is important for Pisces to be more consciously aware of what your body needs in order to maintain health and well-being. If there have been any changes in this area, it is cluing you in to pay attention. This includes looking at things like nutrition, daily routines, exercise, and tuning in to what your physical needs are. Pisces is one of those signs that is very aware of the strong Mind/Body connection with health and wellness, and how one impacts the other. This includes understanding the need for moderation, and not over-extending yourself, or having overly high expectations. Chances are you are feeling rather positive about the future, but it is also wise to recognize what your limits are as well.
