Weekly Astrology Forecast for All Signs February 12 2018
- Get some spontaneous love happening
- Your company says a lot about you
- What’s that psychic ‘heads-up’?
You know what you want when you see it, Aries. And this Valentine’s Day week won’t see you deviate from that. With the Sun and Mercury in your social sector hooking up with Uranus in your 1st, it’s not just about seeing and getting that you want, but the odd surprise too. Especially when it comes to news and your social life. This could be very last minute and the way to get the most out of this Valentine’s Day week is to be spontaneous and go with whatever direction Cupid’s Arrow points you in.
This week’s new Moon triggers a partial solar eclipse in your 11th. Usually a new Moon in this house indicates a new social experience or group of friends. And with the ruler of the 11th in orb, possibly unusual ones. However, eclipses conceal – at least initially. You’re feeling more social and adventurous – whether the connection promises romance or not! What’s being concealed right now? Whether you realise it or not this is all about what the people you’re connected with think of you. And say about you. This eclipse may eventually show you in whose company you belong – and with who you can really be accepted for yourself.
Venus awaits the arrival of the Sun and Mercury into your 12th on the 18th. Once they arrive in here expect a psychic ‘heads up’ on just what that eclipse may be hiding in its shadow. Pay attention to any gut feelings. Because this is your house of the past, the past may return this Valentine’s week in the form of a past love. That could just be one of the surprises for you this week. As could going after that heart’s desire.
In a nutshell: You’re going after what your heart wants, Aries. And you don’t need Valentine’s Day as an excuse. See it – go for it this week!
- Craft your professional image
- Showcase yourself
- Where does your love flow?
Network like there’s no tomorrow this week, Taurus. However, it’s not just about who you know but what you know too. Understand you are under the professional microscope on so many levels now. If you’ve been planning a major career move or to shoot for the top job, then this is you week to take action.
People are watching you so ensure you are projecting the right image. It’s not just about looking the part but being seen as someone who knows what they are talking about and above all – delivers on their promise. Your action (or lack thereof) now will be something you live with for a long time to come so please be aware of this. The coming two year period is going to see you offered increased success and also responsibility so be seen as someone ready to accept this.
This Valentine’s week could see you more focussed on professional relationships rather than personal ones, but that does not mean love is off the menu or that you may not be surprised by a secret admirer. The day after Valentie’s Day we have a partial solar eclipse coinciding with the new Moon in your 10th. Your 10th also contains two important asteroids – Astraea and Hygeia at the moment. This pair are concerned with balance and healing. This combined with this eclipse sees doors swing wide or slam shut on you for good. This eclipse is another reason for encouraging you to take care of your professional reputation and image as it will be under scrutiny for better or worse now. Bear in mind that if your focus has been on your career to the detriment of other areas of your life, you may suddenly be faced with different results to what you hoped for. Which way will the door swing for you? Just remember eclipses ‘cover up’ initially so you need to wait for more to be revealed.
An indication of how well you are doing could arrive as soon as the 17th when the Sun and Mercury meets in your 10th before both headed into your 11th the following day. Surprises, new friends and groups feature. It’s time to jump forward and enjoy new experiences. These are designed to help you expand your worldview and your thinking. Time for a little spontaneity after putting that personal business plan into action, Taurus.
In a nutshell: Where your focus is, there’s the love this week, Taurus. It’s not just about work and it’s not just about love either. It’s all about feeling the passion across all areas.
- Reach for that star
- Go for that no limits love
- What are you yearning for?
One final focus on what you have been learning this past month may be necessary this week, Gemini. Ruler Mercury remains in your 9th until the 18th making all kinds of beneficial aspects for you. Until that shift occurs you remain in a cycle of expansion and exploration. To move forward you need to tap into your well of learning and experience. Is there something you are hesitating to do? Chances are this may be holding you back and you are being nudged towards taking that first step towards something bigger.
Only you can say for sure what this is but it is designed to stretch you and also expand your horizons on some level. It can be anything from that trip you have always wanted to take, that item on your bucket list, applying for that job or starting that business or learning something new. You have not done it yet because you imagine it is beyond you – or takes you too far out of your comfort zone. Ditch the limiting thoughts and dare to do as the solar eclipse at the time of the new Moon in here. It’s time as it occurs to think about a new direction entirely. The universe wants to release you from limitations. This also requires so eclipsed blue-sky thinking as this eclipse makes a highly charged angle to that original and maverick planet Uranus in his ruling house. You’re able to reach for different ways of doing things and in an experimental frame of mind now. Just be aware that eclipses conceal before they reveal so bear in mind that the big picture may still be minus a few key pieces.
Mercury and the Sun join Venus in your 10th of career from the 18th and everything that has gone before this, including that learning and knowledge resource you have amassed, puts you in the perfect position to impress and make those power moves. Whether it’s your career or just a yearning for a bigger life experience, don’t hold back this week.
In a nutshell: Reach for a different kind of love this week. Or way of expressing it. Whatever you think is beyond you, could be closer than you think this Valentine’s week.
- Open that Silver Linings Playbook
- Be the transformation that needs to happen
- Turn up the passion
Changes could come to fruition with a key project, negotiation or even a relationship coming to completion. Your house of personal power, shared resources, transformation and passion contains all the ingredients for change this week – and this includes an eclipse at the time of the new Moon. It’s time for debts to be paid or settled, contracts to be signed or renegotiated, resources to be shared and perhaps even fears to be confronted as this house rules those too. You know better than other signs how a new Moon always marks the start of something. But this one is different due to the eclipse. As eclipses conceal and then reveal, this new Moon in your 8th is all very Yin/Yang as it contains both death and rebirth. So, an ending may in fact turn out to be a new beginning, no matter how it appears at the time. Even if none of the above themes appear to apply to you at the moment, the planetary line-up in this house which includes two asteroids – Astraea and Hygeia, speaks of integration. In other words, bringing your life or even your psyche, back into wholeness again. With a new you rising up stronger as a result. The 8th house is the house of the rising phoenix after all.
As the Sun and Mercury change signs and move on into your 9th from the 18th, expect a shift in your energy. If your energy has been drained by the transformation process, this shift sees it restored and you ready for some bold moves. Get ready now for a dynamic leap forward on into a month of expansion and new experiences. The changes which have preceded this may now be revealed as preparing you to launch. Time for bold moves and big picture thinking. Get a fresh game plan for the upcoming month. It could literally turn out to be your Silver Linings Playbook for the future.
In a nutshell: Changes pave the way for something new. Passion propels you forward. And anything that doesn’t capture your full attention just won’t do this Valentine’s week.
- Bring back balance
- Transformation is a two-way street
- Love means letting go
Whenever a solar eclipse occurs you are the sign that feels the effect the most as the Sun is your ruler. Even with a partial eclipse we can say the life-force of your ruler is temporarily dulled and obscured. And ‘obscured’ is a good word to have at the back of your mind this week, as eclipses do just that. They obscure and hide. You may have noticed this from past eclipses. What is ‘covered up’ by the eclipse eventually comes to light – just as the Moon moves away from blocking the light of the Sun. Hold on to this metaphor as you will be able to apply it later.
So, what is being ‘covered up’ by the new Moon in your 7th on the 15th? This is your house of partners – marriage, long term lovers, business partners, collaborators, close personal friends, people you work closely with and open enemies. This house also rules legal proceedings if you are involved in those right now. If you look closely at the line up in here, as well as your ruler the Sun, you have Mercury and two asteroids – Astraea and Hygeia and these are involved in balance and holistic healing. The eclipse and therefore your ruler make a freedom enhancing angle to Uranus in your 9th. Uranus is the planet of surprises, unpredictability, revolutionary thinking and owning our individuality. This eclipse could well bring up the need to let things go in order to bring balance back in. This especially applies to people and situations you have no control over. Be willing to apply alternative solutions and then to let go. I could say fix what you can fix (or in other words have control over), and what you can’t fix, release. You’ll feel an immediate lightness flow back into your life if you do. Above all, wait for more information or to see what eventually ‘comes to light’.
Passions are stirred as the Sun and Mercury join Venus in your alchemical 8th. Basically you can now bring your intuition to bear on just who you are supposed to be in a relationship with. Chances are it’s broadcasting loud and clear. One way or another, that connection is destined to transform you and take you deeper or send you in a new direction now.
In a nutshell: Love past present and future falls under the influence of this week’s eclipse. Want to know what the future holds? Your intuition already knows the answer, Leo.
- Go deeper into the details
- It’s soul—decluttering time!
- Love may not be perfect but it is perfect for you?
You’re aiming for pristine perfection now with Mercury in your 6th along with the two and two asteroids with a distinctly Mercury-like vibe. Hygeia and Astraea share many qualities with your ruler that you can relate to. This resonance is asking you to ‘clean house’ and refine and heal your life on so many levels. Balance and wellbeing are your take-outs from this exercise. Changing your diet or routine so it truly supports you and leaves you energised rather than drained is one aspect of this. So could be decluttering. Is your ‘stuff’ either in the form of objects, thoughts, habits, situations or even people, dragging you down? Refine and shed now. What you’re left with will not only leave you filled with joy, you’ll open up a space for more of what you need to flow in.
This week also sees a partial solar eclipse in your 6th on the day of the new Moon (15th). As you actively seek out all the details you need, you will appreciate it when I tell you that eclipses cover up and conceal something initially. So wait for more information to emerge. It’s not so much the big picture but the perfect picture you’re intent on piecing together. Pay close attention to health and work matters. Second opinions on anything from job contracts to diagnoses may be necessary – and don’t be afraid to ask for them. I could say this is an eclipse telling you to proofread everything on a soul level so nothing escapes you – especially a mistake. The devil is in the details but then so are the angels this week.
After all this soul clearing activity, you’ll feel the energy shift as the Sun and Mercury both enter your 7th of partnerships on the 18th. They join Venus in this her ruling house as well as Neptune. This can mark the start of a brand new relationship or a new phase for an existing one. Love can take on a beautiful spiritual resonance and you feel the desire to connect on a deeper level. Pave the way for love to flow by clearing the way for it, this week. Isn’t that worth keeping an eye on the details for?
In a nutshell: What’s perfect for you right now, Virgo? Or should I say who? Clear the clutter and make way for the perfect love or solution, to find you this week!
- Love gives you an answer
- Express yourself
- Diplomacy? You’re a natural to impress!
Children, young people, lovers and your creativity. This week sees you dealing with one or more of these themes before the Sun and Mercury move out of your 5th and on into your 6th on the 18th. Who’s your Valentine, Libra? The answer may surprise you this week especially if you’ve been playing a guessing game with someone for a while. The thing about you and game-playing is, that you tire of it after a while. That door to your heart only stays open for so long before you shut it for good. Sure your romantic heart keeps it ajar for a while, but then you just move on. As you have a partial solar eclipse occur in your 5th this week, one outcome from it is that you discover you’ve just got tired of waiting and move in a new direction entirely. A cycle of romance or creativity you thought over and done with reappears reborn with a new focus this time. Or children feature. Remember that eclipses cover up and conceal and as this one makes an angle to Uranus in your partnership sector, this is where the surprise could come in.
The Sun and Mercury move into your 6th from the 18th. Remember this is Mercury’s ruling house. Harness this energy but looking closely at your daily routine, wellbeing and work and where changes need to be made. Even small ones could result in major improvements now. Ruler Venus does not enjoy the energy of this house but despite this remains your best advocate for your ideas allowing you to express them in a creative yet practical manner in this house. With bosses and work colleagues you are now a natural diplomat and the Sun and Mercury in here make for you getting your point across in a way that wows. Needless to say, this is a wonderful time to apply for a new job or make that presentation. Turn work into something you can love now.
In a nutshell: If life has been ‘heavy’ or ‘serious’ lately it’s time to lighten up. Express yourself and play. And maybe throw in a little romance for good measure this week!
- There’s no place like home
- Who are your real ‘family’
- Get a sense of place – and belonging
What does ‘family’ mean to you, Scorpio? This week sees home and family in the spotlight – or rather the half-light of a partial solar eclipse in this house in your chart. Perhaps you are one of those lucky souls who were born into or even adopted by a family you feel are ‘your people’. However, we can be someone’s biological child but it does not always follow we are a child of their spirit. If so, we may have to go create our own definition of family. It doesn’t matter which it is this week, but your home, living arrangements, what you need for your long term security and the people who make up your little tribe or unit, are all about to feature in some way. Decisions around where you are living or what you need could be made. Creating a place to call your own which sustains you along with the people in your life will take on a new importance now. Don’t forget you have Jupiter in your 1st set on expanding your personal horizons for most of this year. But when it comes to those long-term decisions, please don’t be rushed this week or feel under pressure. Eclipses initially conceal or cover up. Then slowly what they hide comes to light. If you feel you are being hurried into anything linked to home, family or long term commitments, then step back and ask yourself why? You may not have all that you need in order to make the correct choice for YOU. If so, this is your cue to step back and wait for the full facts to emerge – and emerge they will.
After all this emphasis on home and security it’s time to have fun and move in harmony with life again. Meet the next month with arms open wide to embrace whatever is headed your way as the Sun and Mercury move into your 5th of fabulousness on the 18th. You already have Venus the planet of romance and glamour in here. By now you should have an increased sense of security to sustain you. This allows you to love, play and express yourself. Romance is a distinct possibility as is being the centre of attention and getting noticed for who you are and what you do. Create a base which allows you to let the magic happen in your life this week, Scorpio.
In a nutshell: This week is all about living – and loving, in a way that suits you, Scorpio. Ditch trying to please others. Please yourself instead.
- Say what you need to say
- Live and love in a way that works for you
- Ideas can take you a long way
What’s on your mind, Sag? You’ve a need to express this in one way or another now thanks to a confab of planets in your communicative 3rd. One way or another, you’ll find the right words and also the right medium by which to transmit them. This week is all about the power of your ideas and getting them across. Mercury rules this house in your chart and along with the Sun in here is meeting with asteroids Astraea and Hygeia. These two have a lot in common with Mercury. Astraea links us to balance and also sub-text and quantum information while Hygeia encourages healing. Words and expressing our thoughts and ideas unblock emotions, empower us and bring us understanding of ourselves and others. So, say what you have to say. Meetings, the written word, business, short journeys and communications are favoured now as are showcasing your ideas and getting your point across.
This week also brings us a partial solar eclipse in this house on the day of the new Moon (15th). Back up all important files and repeat yourself if necessary to make certain you’ve been understood. The kind of breakdowns, delays and snafus we would usually associate with a Mercury retrograde are likely with an eclipse in here. If you have been having disagreements with siblings or your neighbours, then this could bring things to a head. But when it comes to information, please be aware eclipses initially conceal and then reveal later. Bear in mind you may not have all the facts – or more needs to be revised or said.
From the 18th, the Sun and Mercury join Venus in your 4th. Aside from an increased emphasis on home, property, family matters and your emotional and financial security, this cycle is all about your life – your way. Are you living your life or living up to another’s expectations? Are you a fully-fledged adult but still depend on your parents in some way whether it is financially or for their approval? Property dealings are favoured now but so is moving on and being a ‘grown up’ – whatever that means for you. Look at whether your parents encouraged you to go out there, experiment and explore or if their fears and expectations held you back. If this is the case, do something about it. There’s an opportunity waiting for you on the horizon but it will only hang around for so long. Go claim it now.
In a nutshell: Fabulous opportunities glimmer on the horizon. Take that step to claim them now. It’s your life – how you choose to live it – and love, is all up to you this week, Sag.
- Join the rich list
- Love is the ultimate asset
- Change your routine
An eclipse in your money zone this week has you focussed on more than just your money. It’s all about your values too. Think of life as a series of exchanges which your values actually determine and form the rate of exchange. What are you willing to give up in order to get something else? Because whether it’s the money you earn for which you exchange your time and your skills, or just where you are prepared to compromise, it’s all determined by your values. Astraea and Hygeia also in your 2nd could see you set a new rate of exchange as they bring balance and also healing around any blocks between you and abundance. You may find you are only prepared to give up so much in order to get more of something else or that some things just don’t have a price ticket on them. The eclipse could see money coming in or going out, but as eclipses initially conceal, the final balance sheet may yet be drawn up. If in doubt, fall back on those core values and understand being rich is a state of mind, not a bank statement.
Get behind your ideas now as the Sun and Mercury shift into your 3rd joining Venus in here on the 18th. Time to examine your routines and also look at what you really want from life – and then to act on the ideas that come to you. That’s the important thing with planets in here. You’re rich in ideas but that’s all they remain unless you back them up with action. Talk is cheap but actions speak louder than words after all. Get straight to the point and above all, have your facts straight. If you don’t know the answer to something, don’t pretend you do. It’s time to walk your talk in more ways than one as business, written and commercial ventures are favoured. Join the rich list this week – in more ways than just the obvious one.
In a nutshell: Your money, assets and above all, your values are in focus this week. What are you prepared to trade to have or do what you love? Define the price you’re willing to pay.
- Get ready for rebirth
- What you’re looking for is closer than you think
- Wait for your moment
Having Venus in her ruling house in your chart isn’t a bad way to see in Valentine’s Day nor celebrate the final days of your birthday season, Aquarius. In fact, what occurs in both your sign and your money zone this week could set the tone for the rest of the year now. The Sun and Mercury remain in your 1st until the 18th. Plus you have two asteroids aiding you in determining just where you focus needs to be for the next 12 months. Add to this mix a new Moon on the 15th which brings about a partial solar eclipse and you could be looking at nothing short of a rebirth for you on some level. Ruler Uranus is also implicated in all of this. It’s a Stand by You moment now as you may be put in a position where you defend your individual beliefs or ideas. Look closely at who or what opposes you now and remember, eclipses first conceal, then reveal. It may be you’re not ready to show the world that new aspect of you or that personal project or dream. If so, bide your time. Your moment will come.
The Sun and Mercury shift into your 2nd on the 18th bringing you renewed focus on your values and your bank account. With Venus in here a new source of income or even a new romance can’t be ruled out. You could be set to indulge in some of the finer things of life but don’t spend just for the sake of it. Focus on the opportunities you have in the here and now and act on the information Mercury delivers. If so, you’ll be amazed at how your goals start to manifest sooner rather than later. All you have to do is look.
In a nutshell: This week puts you in the here and now, Aquarius. Living in the moment and seeing the opportunities in front of you puts you in the fast-lane towards success.
- Tune in to messages from beyond
- Pay attention to your intuition
- Happy birthday, Pisces!
The run up to your birthday season gets all a bit spiritual and mysterious, Pisces. But then you do the cosmic oh-so-well. Just prior to the Sun and also Mercury arriving in your sign on the 18th, you have a 12th house filled to capacity with spiritual insight and links to your past. You may just know something is going to happen before it does. Hopefully this will not spoil any Valentine’s surprise for you. The past will certainly feature on some level or return for one last go-around. It may turn up in person or just in memories surfacing to be re-framed and healed. This is all about setting yourself up for freedom now and discarding anything that holds you back. Astraea and Hygeia in your 12th open you up to cosmic wisdom, healing and also bring you back into balance if this is needed. Again, your higher self may be guiding you towards experiences, things and even books or films with important messages for you related to this. Be open and you could step forward into this new cycle unencumbered. But for now you may be keeping all this to yourself. That’s okay. This could be due to a revelation about someone or something from your past. The new Moon in your 12th triggers a partial solar eclipse. Eclipses conceal and then reveal. Again, with your heightened intuitive abilities, you may even get an inexplicable feeling about what this is before it happens.
Venus is already in your 1st and is joined by the Sun and Mercury on the 18th. Look forward to a year of expansion, freedom and new people and experiences. Time to keep that line open to your higher self. You won’t be spending much time on your own in the coming weeks but when you do, listen to what your inner self has to say and then act on it. You’re about to discover new loves and recapture some old ones now. Set your sights on the future – and party in the moment, Pisces!
In a nutshell: In the run-up to your birthday there’s so much going on with you you’re just not ready to show others, Pisces. But get ready to emerge – and dazzle in the process!
