By our astrologer Elena
Second chances align you to your goals
Begin something new
It’s all love all the way for the Now Age!
Valentine’s, Galentine’s, Palentine’s. Love and other opportunities are in the air this week. Be wide open to what form they may take, Aries.
Opening your heart is the key to making the most of the peak of the Now Age weather that’s happening in your 11th. Second chances across all areas are possible now. As well as new beginnings. This week sees the Now Age weather peak with six planets in here at the time of the New Moon on the 11th. The same day as Venus and Jupiter meet in here. This along with the meeting of the Sun and Mercury on the 8th and Mercury and Venus on the 13th point to exciting new cycles and fresh starts. Especially when it comes to connections, writing, ideas and the internet. Your 11th is all about wishes and dreams. Make one and it could just come true now.
Into the Future Together
Valentine’s Day hands us the second of three Mercury/Jupiter meetings along with a potent Cupido/Ceres/Moon conjunction in your 12th squaring the Galactic Centre in your 9th. Astrologers don’t often see a line up like this. And we would say all that occurs this week lights a pathway towards your future goals. Be they in love, business, travel (eventually!) or learning. It’s also a time like no other for opportunities to reappear. Including that lost love.
Use this energy to start your journey this week. Whether this is a real one or a metaphorical one. Whatever you do – don’t do nothing as this week above all others this year, sets your future on a course that will last for the following 12 months. And show the love to anyone you please. What matters most is who comes with you on this journey. You don’t have to go it alone, Aries.
In a nutshell: What does love look like this week, Aries? If you have no special someone love is still in the air. Open your heart to all your connections and show them how they matter. Friends join you on a journey this Valentine’s week.
Power up your love!
Big opportunities surround you
Friends, contacts and networks fuel your future
We know your ruler Venus is associated with all good things. And Jupiter just means a larger experience or slice of these! So, imagine what a Venus/Jupiter conjunction adds up to for you! This conjunction is one all astrologers see as bringing massive breakthroughs, solutions and opportunities. For you, it occurs in your career, public image and status sector. Meaning rewards and recognition are on their way, Taurus.
The plethora of Now Age planets in this house peaks this week. The new Moon in here on the 11th occurs the same day as the Venus/Jupiter entanglement. And brings the number of planets in here to six. Not just that, we have the Sun conjunct retro Mercury in here on the 8th, Mercury and Venus conjunct on the 13th and the second of three meetings between Mercury and Jupiter occurs on the 14th.
Recognise the Love
Love or your relationship is also something which impacts on your status or public image. Rewards and recognition for long term efforts are on offer. You may have a big announcement to make which makes others sit up and take notice. Or you are the recipient of a big, breaking piece of news. The new Moon marks the start of a fresh beginning which could see you take the next big step in your ambitions, cement that relationship or even move.
Valentine’s Day also links you to friends and your larger network of resources. What you do could make them sit up and take notice as Cupido, Ceres and the Moon form a superconjunction in your 11th and trigger the Galactic Centre in your ‘other’ money house. Embrace anything from power moves to the power of love this week.
In a nutshell: News or an opportunity you’ve been waiting for has others seeing you in a new light, Taurus. Love sets your status higher as ruler Venus meets Jupiter in your rewards and recognition sector.
Go after what you want
Get a bigger passion
Taking a chance on love pays off
Be fearless in pursuit of what you love this week, Gemini. You’re a fierce warrior for passion. Don’t settle for the so-so either. You are destined for something much bigger.
Settling will no longer be an option for you now. Ruler Mercury is performing a retrograde like no other in your 9th. Meeting the Sun (8th), Venus (13th) and Jupiter (14th). This week also delivers a new Moon in here on the 11th and a meeting between Venus and Jupiter on the same day. This is of course, Jupiter’s ruling house. So, think big, bold new beginnings. And all-encompassing loves. You either feel the passion totally – or you realise you have now to go seek it.
Reclaiming it is also possible. Yes, this is the one Mercury retro which allows launches and new beginnings. But also for the returns of lost loves, goals and big solutions to anything that has kept you stuck for far too long. You’re being released into something new and better now. Aim higher when it comes to both love and your career.
Go big or forget about it!
Above all, take a chance now. V-Day doesn’t just bring the potential for big news with that Mercury/Jupiter meeting. But big moves if you fare apply that fierceness to your career or going after what you want in any area. You have a superconjunction between Cupido, Ceres and the Moon in your 10th. Which squares the Galactic Centre in your partnership and long-term love/relationships sector. When it comes to anything that gets your heart beating faster this week Gemini your catch-phrase truly is: Go big or go home.
In a nutshell: If it doesn’t fire your soul, then just maybe you need to replace it with something that does, Gemini. Settling for less just doesn’t do it. This week tells you only the biggest love fits the bill.
Changes are linked to soul freedom
Work that sexiness!
The next few weeks are going to exert a powerful force for evolutionary change, Cancer. But it all begins this week with a call to transform a key area of your life. This could touch on your income, salary, benefits or maintenance payments, your mortgage, joint assets and finances and anything you share with another person. From that bed to who does what around the home.
Access to a greater share or having more at your disposal is what this is all about for you. This week marks the peak of the Now Age weather circulating in your power-house 8th. And it will continue on over the next month or so. The new Moon in here on the 11th sees a total of six planets in here. Sun, Moon, retro Mercury, Venus, Jupiter and Saturn.

Second chances, revisits, returns and rebirths are heralded. Dates to watch are not just the day of the new Moon which also sees Venus and Jupiter form a desire-manifesting conjunction; but also Sun/Mercury conjunct (8th), Mercury/Venus conjunct (13th) and Mercury/Jupiter for the second time on the 14th.
You’re bringing sexy back!
Hot love could feature for many this Valentine’s week as your 8th rules passion, desire and yes, sex. Flirtations could quickly flare into down-right nuclear meltdown chain reactions. Settleds could be in for hot love for stay-home floor is lava passion. If so, blame the super-conjunction between Cupido, Ceres and your ruler the Moon in your 9th. All hitting the Galactic Centre in your 6th on the 14th. Yes, passion can be found right where you are, Cancer. Love the one you’re with – or connected to.

Take heart-centered action!
Duets and double acts are the flavour of the week
Love offers a second chance
Make a wish around love, what you love to do or what you would love to have or experience this week, Leo. It’s all about heart-centered action for the Now Age. We have peak planetary activity in your 7th at the time of the new Moon on the 11th. This day sees a total of six planets in here. Your ruler the Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Venus which rules this house, Jupiter and Saturn.
Start in the Name of Love!
There has never been a better week to act in the name of love – or what you love, than this one. It’s a time for fresh starts, new beginnings and also second chances and the return of lost opportunities for you, Leo.
You don’t have to wait for the day of the new Moon for this to happen. The 8th has the Sun meet retroactive Mercury in here. This could mark news from the past or someone or something returning. This is a Mercury retro like no other. Sure, those retro rules still apply. But you can begin again or anew under this one in a way that is usually off-limits. Take it when it comes to any kind of partnership or double-act, nothing is now. The day of the new Moon sees Venus meet Jupiter bigging up that love factor for you. While Mercury and Venus meet in here on the 13th.
Don’t forget, Venus rules your bank account as well as your love life. While Mercury rules commerce and communication. Jupiter offers solutions, opportunities and super-sizes the potential of anything which comes under the rulership of the house it is in. So, big loves, lucky breaks and huge opportunities which would involve you and at least one other person surround you this Valentine’s Day which is when Mercury and Jupiter meet for the second time. Hence the emphasis on second chances.
This day also has a super conjunction occurring in your ‘other’ money house and also house of sizzling passion – your 8th. Cupido, Ceres and the Moon all cojoin and tightly align to the Galactic Centre in your 5th. Children, babies, young people, the young at heart and all things romantic and leonine, could have a fated feel. What manifests could touch on your professional status as well as that person who makes your heart beat faster. Someone could show you just how much you mean to them. You have to feel it to go for it now. Walk to the beat of your heart this week, Leo.
Take a chance in the name of love
Make a brand new life start
Ruler Mercury remains retrograde in its ruling 6th. But as you know (or should do) by now, we are dealing with a retrograde like no other. Old rules and new ones are in place. Adaptability and open-mindedness feature as does taking a chance.
This week sees the planetary activity peak in your Now Age 6th. On the day of the new Moon (11th) we will see a line up of six planets in here. The Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter and Saturn. So, it’s back to that creating of your best life to be lived each and every day. And loving the results. Continue to think work, studies, habits, diet, fitness, chores, routine and yes, pets if you have them.
New job opportunities could appear or past ones return when the Sun and Mercury meets on the 8th. The new Moon on the 11th occurs the same day as Venus and Jupiter meet. While Venus will meet your ruler on the 13th. Refocus on ideas, review your self-care and relaunch something if necessary.
Love could be closer than you think
Yes, but what about the love? It is Valentine’s week after all! If you are seeking love this week it could be found closer than you think. Connected to your area or line of work even. If someone or something reappears now, it has your name all over it.
Settleds may have a new appreciation for their partner based on what they do for them every day of the year as opposed to just one. Valentine’s Day sees Mercury meet Jupiter for the 2nd time. Valentine’s messages could include positive work developments. Or new ways to say ‘I love you’ as in a device to love.
A super conjunction in your 7th gives you three times the love thanks to Cupido, Ceres and the Moon. All trigger the Galactic Centre in your 4th. Love incudes roots, your home, family or not minding celebrating the love at home. Taking you right back to everyday loving. Close to home.
In a nutshell: That Grand Design for Living extends to one for loving this week, Virgo. Again, its an ‘Embrace All Areas’ approach. It all adds up to simply having more to love – and it is all around you now!
Love Beyond Fabulous
Work it like a Diva!
You’re serving fabulousness this Valentine’s week, Libra. Ruler Venus is in da house – your 5th house. Along with the Sun which rules this house, Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn. And on the day of the new Moon (11th) this energy peaks with a total of six planets in here.
It’s time for new beginnings in love, creativity, children and good times. Yes, the latter may have been absent recently. But this week could mark your turning point. You’re the ruler this week and you are making nothing short of royal progress towards something close to your heart. This is one of your houses of attraction. Look to the future especially at the time of the new Moon which is also the day Venus and Jupiter meet in here. What is it you want from love for your future? This includes the things you love to do.
Work it Like a Diva!
Don’t hide yourself away this week even if in lockdown. You need to work this energy not so much like a boss but like a diva! Put yourself, your loves, your creativity out there any way you can. This is the ‘radiate’ part of the attraction process. If you are home alone, then even if you are reaching now automatically for those sweat pants, a spritz of cologne could add the feel-good touch. But what not dress up like you are off to the premiere even if it is taking place in your lounge room? Again, it’s about what you put out there.
Many of you could see opportunities or lovers return this week. All thanks to the Mercury retrofactor. It’s a week to make a wish and then head towards it filled with fulfilment expectations. You already know this is a retro like no other. Key dates are the 8th – Sun and Mercury conjunct, 13th – Venus and Mercury conjunct, and 14th – the second meeting between Mercury and Jupiter. It’s all linked to cosmic ordering and desire.
The 14th also brings you a super-conjunction in your house of every day wellbeing and work between Cupido, Ceres and the Moon. These square the Galactic Centre in your 3rd of news, commerce and communication. So, think not just big loves but everyday ones too. Shifts around your routine, day job or studies or even those habits, bring you more of what you really want. That’s the royal progress for you this Valentine’s week, Libra.
In a nutshell: Own your fabulousness, Libra. And don’t go after anything that you don’t desire heart, body and soul. From the smallest need to the biggest love – you can draw so much to you this week.
Live love on a larger scale
New directions emerge from the past
Play by the rules – yours!
The new Moon appears in its ruling 4th this week. It’s all about home, lifestyle, living arrangements and owning your future path. The Grand Design that you set in motion now could expand your lifestyle, space or even career potential. Time to live it larger, Scorpio.
We are in retroactive weather like none you have seen before. Returns, second chances and missed opportunities re-imagined could be winging your way like Valentine’s cards from the universe this week. Those retro-Mercury transits could grant past wishes. Or bring news you have given up on.
Expand your Love Network
It’s also time to network, express your uniqueness and maybe even bend the rules a little – or set your own ones. Dates to watch or simply dare to colour outside the lines of that home-made Valentine’s card are the 8th – Sun/Mercury conjunction; 11th – new Moon + Venus/Jupiter conjunction, 13th – Mercury/Venus meet-cute and then the 14th – Mercury meets Jupiter for the second time!
Your luck factor could get boosted this week thanks to Jupiter. Plus, there’s a super-kiki happening in your 5th between love-crazy Cupido, Ceres and the Moon. All angling to the Galactic Centre in your 2nd of self-worth. Valentine’s luck includes a past, present or potential partner or person. Or a new direction emerges. Claim the direction love wants you to head in now.
In a nutshell: Love may be centered around home, family, where you live or simply what hands you that feeling of belonging, Scorpio. This week wants you to expand your idea of what ‘family’ is. Share the love.
Launch those ideas
Get ready for out of the blue solutions
Love powers your future forward
Ruler Jupiter is acting as Fat Cupid this Valentine’s week, Sag. Get ready for some electrifying surprises now. The air around you is crackling with messages of love, yes answers and future potential. Take those plans and goals off the back-burner. Time to set them in motion.
Mercury is retrograde in its ruling 3rd. But thanks to the mega-tastic Now Age line up in here, this is a retrograde where forwards motion, not backwards, is favoured. Your Tarot card for the week if you want to embrace its energy is the 8 of Wands. Ideas and Cupid’s arrows are flying through the air, bringing in a rush of fresh optimism and opportunities.
The Sun and Mercury meet in here on the 8th. You’re on a launch count-down now. The new Moon of the 11th sees the energy peak. You have six planets in here on this day. Including Venus and Jupiter conjunct. This is what astrologers call a ‘5 Star’ conjunction. Meaning it doesn’t get any better than this. This is all about focussing your energy onto a key goal or idea now. Or even that relationship.
Opportunities transcend time and space
You’re also want to express the love you feel especially on the lead-up to V-Day when on the 13th Mercury meets Venus. There’s a boldness and open heartedness about this. You own your own feelings and that is all that counts for you.
Feeling confident in what you say, create and share is second nature as Mercury and Jupiter meet for the second time on the 14th. This could see the return of something for some of you. This day also hands you a mega-conjunction in your 4th between the Moon which rules this house, Ceres and Cupido firing off an arrow for you around something personal and related to emotional satisfaction. All three make a tight angle to the Galactic Centre in your 1st. Play with quantum possibilities. Something could come spinning out of time and space to catch up with you in the present moment. It’s the universe’s way of saying ‘I love you’ this week.
In a nutshell: Ideas to fall in love with are part of this week’s Now Age beginnings in your 3rd. If you’ve been waiting for answers, green lights or solutions, Cupid or rather Jupiter, delivers the Valentine’s message, Sag.
Know you own it to have it
Embrace unshakable self-esteem
Love yourself and the world loves you back
This week is going to show you that simply wanting something or visualising it, isn’t enough. You need to know you are worthy of it. There’s a minted feel to Valentine’s week for you. Abundance and self-worth are mindsets. They have little or nothing to do with what is in your bank account or what you own or have.
Venus is the ruler of your 2nd. You have a crowded house in here with the Sun, retro Mercury, Venus, Jupiter and ruler Saturn. The 11th brings a new Moon in here and a total of six planets. All asking you what it is you feel you deserve or can attract for this upcoming Now Age cycle. As this is a Venus ruled house, we are taking love as well as money. This is your house of assets. They include those relationships you know you can ‘bank’ on no matter what. In other words, what money cannot buy you.
Money can’t buy you self-worth either. You can have a closet full of Hermes Birkins and still feel like you don’t matter. The gift this Valentine’s wants to bring you whether you are single and seeking or settled, is something which cements that self-esteem or shows you just how much you are valued. New beginnings and fresh starts are possible around your income thanks to this rule-breaking Mercury retrograde. Or that all important loved-up feeling.
Love you can bank on
The Sun conjunct Mercury on the 8th could not just see the bounce-back of an opportunity you thought had gone, but see you launching a new value system. Especially at the time of the new Moon which coincides with Venus and Jupiter conjunct in here. This points to expansion and gains. Mercury and Venus meet on the 13th and Mercury and Jupiter have their second encounter on the 14th.
Something could be put in place that enables you to not just feel loved-up but minted in a way that is priceless now. The 14th sees a love-in happening between Cupido, Ceres and the Moon in your 3rd. All three square the Galactic Centre in your mysterious 12th. So, think the epicentre of all the mysteries of the universe in your house of mysteries. What emerges from this could be a love from the past. What goes around is fired by Cupid in your direction this week.
In a nutshell: Money can’t buy you love. But self-worth hands you something priceless, Capricorn. This week says to have it, you need to know you can. Deservedness is your V-Day gift.
Own your magic
Don’t wait – begin it now
Try a little outrageousness!
Your Now Age energy peaks with six planets in a loved-up mood in your sign for V-Day week. This marks the start of one of the most important cycles you have experienced, Aquarius. It’s very much self-directed, self-driven and self-designed. This week you are The Magician in the Tarot. With all our alchemistic and magical tools set out before you. And the ability to direct your future down any path you would like it to go.
Believe in Your Own Magic
Mercury retro in your 1st has been taking you back to reclaim lost parts of the Wonder that You Are. It can also usher in missed opportunities, revivals and second chances. Unlike other Mercury retros this one favours new beginnings. Especially as you may be in a mood not to wait, Aquarius. Newsworthy fresh starts could occur on the 8th when the Sun and Mercury meet in your sign. Or you take the initiative and push forward your plans.
Luck and love are both forces working for you this week. Take a chance and again, believe in your own ability to make it happen for the Now Age. Those goals and visions are going to be as unique as you are. To own them is to super-charge them now. Elemental new beginnings are marked by the new Moon of the 11th. This day also sees Venus and Jupiter meet in your 1st. Your image, face, appearance, style, brand, profile and message have a bigger than usual role to play. Stand out and get yourself noticed.
Get a bit of wish fulfilment happening on Valentine’s Day itself. The day before Mercury and Venus meet. But there’s a back to the future date occurring between Jupiter and Mercury on the 14th when they meet for the second time.
The super-mash up between Cupido (yes, the dude with the bad aim!), Ceres and the Moon in your 2nd aligns to the Galactic Centre in your 11th. The house where goals and wishes are set and also fulfilled. It could be for you this year, that Cupid’s arrow flies straight to its mark. You’re on target for attraction, recognition, a fresh start or simply second time around love and other opportunities this week. A little self-belief is the best possible Valentine you can send yourself.
In a nutshell: Let go of what you know or think is possible for you to have, Aquarius. Reshape your potential by updating that look. And that attitude. Ensure it’s set to ‘Attract’.
It’s not imagination – it’s potential
Embrace the unexpected
Love from the past is reborn
Love links you to the past this week. Something or someone could return under the peak 12th house weather. Retrograde Mercury says anything that reappears now could do so under a fresh guise. If not, chances you know intuitive something new is just around the corner for you. Even if you’re not certain just what.
Your hundred psychic senses are working overtime now. Information comes to you directly channelled from the source especially around the 8th when the Sun and retro Mercury meet. Clairvoyance, mediumship and using the Akashic record like your own personal database is possible. Plus while there may be no ‘logic’ to what you sense or come up with to many, it turns out nevertheless to be spot-on.
If you work in a Now Age, healing or creative profession or really any area requiring leaps of the imagination, this week offers breakthroughs and amazing potential to progress. The new Moon in your 12th on the 11th brings peak energy for you. We are days away from the Sun arriving in your sign. You will now be extremely focussed on what you want for this new cycle. This is your start date.
Fresh relevance, new potentials
The new Moon coincides with Jupiter and Venus conjunct. While the 13th sees Mercury conjunct Venus. Old loves may feature. Plus you can release yourself from any elements which tie you unnecessarily to your past now. Time to explore what your imagination says you can achieve. The more you let go of limits, the more possible it may look.
Secret loves or unlooked for or unexpected opportunities could add extra special Valentine’s magic on the 14th. This marks the second meeting between Mercury and Jupiter. But you will also personally benefit from the super-conjunction between Cupido, Ceres and the Moon in your 1st. Cosmic change could bring about a solution or escape into something better provided you are prepared to compromise and/or let go. There’s a win/win on the table this week. It could be around a person or a desire that’s close to your heart. You have the intuition it takes to make it real.
In a nutshell: It’s not just love in the air this week – but the feeling you’re on the brink of something new, Pisces. Follow up on those hunches. Imagination isn’t just wishful thinking. But a guide for the future.
