Weekly Astrology Forecast for All Signs February 17 2020
Your warrior tools include insight and intuition
Success setting actions in the past could find you in the present
Take a deep dive into soul wisdom
Dreams, religion, spirituality, the Tarot, astrology, psychology, psychiatry, therapy, alternative therapies, the soul of empathy, compassion and questions such as: What’s the meaning of all this? Mercury retrograde in your 12th this week marks a return journey to the deep side of life. Some of you may go deeper this time around. This is also your house of the past and past lives. It can see actions set in motion in the past catch up with us in the present. In your case this could just be second chance opportunities knock, knock, knocking on heaven’s door which could open wide for you. Especially when it comes to past efforts towards success. Jupiter and ruler Mars are both in your career zone now. Jupiter making a destiny fulfilling angle to Neptune which rules your 12th on the 19th. Mars trines Uranus in your money zone on the 21st. It’s telling you its time to finish what you started – and reap those rewards if they are due.
The Sun and new Moon in your 12th on the 19th and 23rd respectively point to an opportunity where you can use your intuition and insight to practical effect. Follow the nudges of your soul. This is a time where secrets can be uncovered and the past totally reframed. You may see people’s actions for what they truly were – not what you thought or wanted them to be. Also your gift is that of the fearless soul warrior as you’re willing to face any patterns in relationships or in life, that prevent you from having what you desire. There’s no such thing as a bad angle between Venus and Jupiter. Venus is still in your 1st and makes a success defining angle to Jupiter also on the 23rd. Watch how barriers to progress simply fall away. All because of what you follow through with or have previously set in motion.
In a nutshell: This week could reveal your purpose, open up a secret source of wisdom or bring you long awaited results from something you started in the past. In fact, this is where your past catches up with your present. It’s a gift, Aries.
Moonwalk back to those dreams
Reconnect to reboot your future
Don’t hesitate over second chances
It’s Retro Time, baby and with ruler Venus in your 12th while this is happening, you can expect the past to come calling. Mercury heads backwards in your house of the future, your friendships, connections and goals this week. You could be hearing from people you have not heard from in a while. And also perhaps reviving a past dream that you felt you had to let go of. Maybe due to circumstances beyond your control. Or perhaps even because someone poured cold water on those hopes and wishes. Mercury retro rules ‘re’ words so yes, revival is certainly your one now.
Your key to forward motion and freedom actually rests with people you have known or meet again now. Ruler Venus will angle to Jupiter in its ruling 9th from your 12th on the 23rd, while Jupiter in turn aligns to Neptune which rules your 12th but sits in your 11th on the 19th. You could be faced with the unexpected return of an opportunity or blast from your past with an offer for you when Mars also in your 9th, aligns with Uranus in your 1st on the 21st. Don’t hesitate this time around if this is a second chance offer. The Sun enters your 11th on the 19th and we have one of the most important new Moons of the year in here on the 23rd– the same day your ruler and Jupiter align. This one sets your course towards your future and also defines your social life for the next 12 months. There’s something bigger on offer with kindred spirits now, Taurus. So reconnect with them this week.
In a nutshell: Mercury retro rules those ‘re’ words. In your case reconnection, Taurus. Reconnecting to old friends and contacts and to those dreams, sets you on a new journey this week.
Your ruler says you DO get a second chance to make that impression
Delays and discussions work in your favour now
People you know open doors to your future
When ruler Mercury heads direct you know that aside from observing the usual Retro Rules, that the area governed by the house is heads backwards in is now on hold. In the case of this retro-fit – your career and later, long distance travel and those big dreams. So, call this a period of fine tuning and refinement and if possible, put off those travel plans or launching that big idea as Mercury reverses in your 10th from the 17th.
If you are currently engaged in a job search, a pitch, interview process or anything that will have a visible impact on your status or public image, expect nothing to be decided and for things to rock back and forth for a bit on the Ocean of Negotiation. This is due to Jupiter and Mars both in your 8th impacting on Neptune in your 10th and Uranus in your 12th. Nothing is decided but if so, know there is a good reason behind it. Also know where you are prepared to be flexible and where you need to stand by your values. The Sun enters your 10th this week and with your ruler backwards, this is a call to re-impress potential bosses, clients and business contacts you have approached in the past. Perhaps by taking a different one. The door may open if you knock again especially around the time of the new Moon in here on the 23rd. It’s also a week where long term goals and ambitions could be revived or realised via those you know. Venus brings you friends with benefits – not the romantic kind but almost every other kind you can think of, as it angles to Jupiter on the 23rd. If you need something, ask who you know or mine your network to revive those goals, Gemini.
In a nutshell: Ruler Mercury in full retroactive motion has you looking at where you’ve been – and where you want to go next. Those you know or have approach in the past, hold the key to this. Knock on that door again.
Own that path
Look back at the past with love not judgement
Is it time for a new kind of partnership?
Set your status factor to higher yet to climb this week, Cancer. It’s time to own your path in a way you may not have done until now. Time to claim your own unique direction. To understand this is your life and yours to make of it what you will. If you have been living your life for others, or worse, living their choices for you, Mercury retrograde in your 9th points the way to freedom. You’ll also come to appreciate how your choice of partners influences your decisions and where you find yourself. You’re looking at this in a non-blaming way now thanks to Jupiter and Mars in your 7th. Jupiter and Mars both in your 7th offer new choices and fresh directions – perhaps unexpected ones as Jupiter aligns to Neptune in its ruling 9th on the 19th, and Mars to Uranus in your 11th on the 21st. A new partnership opportunity may look very different to those in the past. Ask if you want more of the same or something new and better?
Above all, do watch for any tendencies towards escapism or thinking someone or somewhere will solve your issues. This is not what this week is all about. Ownership means dealing with your stuff in the here and now. Usually the Sun and new Moon in your 9th – which take place on the 19th and 23rd respectively, mark the beginning of a new or metaphorical journey. However, travelling except back to the past, is not favoured under a Mercury retro. Again, this relates to owning your journey and your choices. Knowing where you have been allows you to see what brought you here right now. This is a course correct if this is what is needed. Especially when it comes to love and work and partnership choices. Venus now in your 10th could be showing you that there’s something or someone higher or better to reach for now which changes your direction personally, professionally or both, as it aligns to Jupiter on the 23rd. It’s your choice, Cancer. Choose a higher version of love.
In a nutshell: Time for ownership of that soul path, Cancer. By doing this and looking at your past from a position of non-blame, you step free of it. There’s a new success story emerging from this. Do the work.
Show the world your colours
Living without change is more scary than actually living it
Embrace new beginnings – and a new you
It’s butterfly time, Leo! You’ve been a chrysalis for far too long in a key area. So, this week as the planetary activity peaks in your 8th, time to make the changes you now know need to happen to bring this about. Perhaps you have been procrastinating around this. And there can be so many reasons why we don’t tackle the changes we know we should. Fear of change being one thing. But yes, without that change there would be no butterflies. There are no endings, simply new beginnings this week as Mercury retro in your 8th sends you a reminder around what you have been putting off. You also have your ruler the Sun arriving in this house on the 19th and a new Moon in here on the 23rd. This marks a deep, soul searching period of transformation where you look within and ask yourself if you can honestly live with the status quo?
The changes may not happen overnight, but knowing that things cannot possibly stay the same will see you at least taking the first steps towards initiating that shift. You have powerful planetary support in this easing your way towards transformation. Jupiter in your 6th of wellbeing aligns to Neptune also in your 8th, possibly pointing the way to a solution you were not aware existed until now. Mars in your 6th impacting on Neptune also in your 8th has you acting on intuition to seek them out. Your time of emergence is the 23rd the day of the new Moon when Venus in Jupiter’s ruling 9th aligns to it in your 6th. You now see all too clearly the impact of not making that change. Unfurl those wings, show your colours and get ready to fly this week.
In a nutshell: Change sets you free this week, Leo. And by that, I mean to soar and shine as is your destiny. Don’t put off initiating this or doing whatever needs to be done to achieve it. Staying stuck? Simply no longer an option.
Nothing is written in stone – including that lover’s tiff
Get a heart-starter on what you thought impossible
Long live love!
With ruler Mercury retrograde in your partnership zone this week you should not need me to remind you that embarking on a new relationship of any description is a bad idea now. This includes business ones as well as the romantic variety. Nothing is decided or signed, sealed, delivered and yours now. So, getting married – also a bad idea. Put off long term decisions that involve you and another unless it simply cannot be helped. The upside to that retrograde in here is nothing lasts. That includes that lover’s tiff.
Mercury will back up into it’s ruling 6th during this retro cycle so please ensure you stick to those retro rules. Reviving the love, could be themes you are looking at due to the Sun and a new Moon also in your 7th this week. and Venus in your 8th of rebirth. This is all about your very own love revival. You could reconcile with someone, recapture missing passion with a present partner – or even for something you used to love to do. Mars in your 5th is all about turning up the heat plus you also have Jupiter in here telling you its time for big love. And to reclaim this if lately you have been feeling it has been dumped in the left luggage office. Venus’s alignment to Jupiter on the 23rd which is the same day as that new Moon in Venus’s ruling 7th, is all about a rebirth. That lover you never thought would reappear. That opportunity you felt had gone for good. Or even just that ability to abandon yourself to a job, hobby or way to express yourself you used to love. Long live love this week.
In a nutshell: Love gets a heart-starter. It could return or be resurrected if you felt it had gone for good this week. Opportunities could reappear and passion revived. Seems love was never dead – just sleeping, Virgo.
Create a revive and restore kind of routine
Wait for answers
What returns has your name on it
Mercury retros in its ruling 6th in your chart of work and wellbeing this week. This of course adds up to an extra special dose of Mercury mayhem now. Note that it will back up into your 5th of lovers, children and holidays while it is in backwards form. So, booking that vacation now even for a date when Mercury is heading forward again – not a good idea. Things may be unclear or just plain confusing around work, your daily routine or even wellbeing. If you are given a diagnosis now and it does not sit right with you, get a second or even third opinion if necessary. Merc retro in here can make things difficult to diagnose especially as you have Neptune in here too. Your energy can go back and forth. A little restorative therapy as in taking care of yourself, goes a long way now.
Questions around living arrangements may also be ‘up in the air’ still and again, this is not the time to buy, sell, lease or rent property unless you absolutely have to move as Mercury rules contracts. What is this time good for then I hear you ask? Especially as you have the Sun and new Moon also in your 6th this week. Changing up that routine and planning a future move. Either with work, premises or both. This week sees ruler Venus still in your 7th of partnerships aspect Jupiter in your 4th. Some could see a job or property opportunity they missed out on the first time, come back onto the market. If so, you have every planet’s – including Mercury’s permission to go for it. What returns now has your name on it.
In a nutshell: It may not be the best time to start something new. But to rediscover a lost love or missed opportunity? Your blessings have your name on them. What returns this week shows you just how true this is, Libra.
Welcome to the love revival
Plug back into past passion
Wait for the final result
Where has the love gone, Scorpio? If you find yourself asking that question over the next few weeks, please don’t go looking for it in all the wrong places. Yes, this would normally be a special time for you when it comes to love, romance an pure attraction due to the Sun’s arrival in your 5th on the 19th and a new Moon in here on the 23rd. This usually marks a time for new beginnings in love, self-expression and pleasure. However, party-pooper Mercury (this is your house of parties), goes into full reverse on the 17th in here. So, while the good times may not necessarily be on hold, starting that new love affair, creative venture or holiday isn’t your best move right now. Not unless you really and truly enjoy reversals and things simply not taking off that is. So, added to the confusion – if you are heading to that party take extra time getting there and perhaps confirm it is still on.
Reviving an old hobby, pastime, creative venture or fine tuning that existing project is highlighted over the retro period. Injecting new love into something old in other words. As this is your house of love, Mercury retro can sometimes redeliver that past lover who wants to kiss and make up. Bear in mind, nothing is lasting or decided under a Merc Retro. This includes break-ups and tiffs. News around work or business could come your way this week thanks to Venus in your 6th along with Jupiter in your 3rd. The news may be positive but remember – both these houses are ruled by Mercury! So, the deal’s not done until it’s signed, sealed and delivered and the money is in your account. Wait for the final result this week.
In a nutshell: There’s a love revival happening this week that plugs you back into lost passion. Or could even see the return of an old love. But you’ll have to wait for the final outcome as Mercury heads backwards in your 5th.
Moving on up may involve staying put for now
Re-invent those ideas
Revive those plans which could be cash in the bank
Put any property dealings on hold unless you absolutely cannot afford not to, Sag. If buying or renting you may be faced with withdrawals of offers, time wasters or substantial delays. If you are looking for a property, then you may find your offer is accepted but then declined, something wrong with the property or it is withdrawn from the market. Reversals under Mercury retrograde which heads backwards in your house of home, family and living arrangements, are common. If you are seeking a room-mate, they may turn out to be unreliable or not stay long. Bear in mind if you can, that many astrologers, numerologists and psychics believe that houses choose their occupants. Not the other way around. So, unless you are being evicted or your living arrangements are untenable, staying put is your best option for the next few weeks.
This does not apply if you are moving back somewhere you have lived before, or if say, a property you lost out on suddenly pops back up on to the market again. Redecorating, renovating and decluttering your home are all favoured under Mercury retro. If you love where you are, make it yours. If not, research where you want to move to while Mercury is backwards. The Sun and new Moon in your 4th point to new beginnings. But the past could provide the key here. Ruler Jupiter in your money zone wants to bankroll those plans along with Mars which fuels your capacity to go out in pursuit of more cash. Time to unleash that inner entrepreneur thanks to a fabulous trine between Mars and Uranus in your 6th on the 21st. Did you have an idea that you have neglected to pursue? Mercury is all about reimagining or relaunching now. Venus which rules your 2nd but presently sits in your 5th angles to your ruler which is in Venus’s ruling house on the 23rd. This could literally hand you a bonus on more than one level. Bank rolling that future move could just now be possible, Sag.
In a nutshell: Look at those future moves you want to make, Sag. Or are you happy with where you’re living? If the latter – do what you can to make it truly yours. If not, ruler Jupiter could just have a plan to bankroll that move. Watch and wait.
Revisit what you send out there
Send out a soul reminder of all you have to offer
Ask again and you could get a different answer
Mercury retrogrades in its ruling 3rd in your chart this week. This adds up to double jeopardy when it comes to the mayhem it can create. So, please stick to those Retro Rules! It will back up into your 2nd during this cycle so looking at your money, assets, resources and setting a new financial plan in motion is simply good housekeeping now. As is avoiding major expenditures unless you are faced with replacing an item which has broken beyond repair. Simply put, that bargain isn’t.
You have the Sun and a new Moon also in your 3rd this week. Plus, Neptune in your 3rd makes a simply inspiring angle to Jupiter in your 1st. Going back over that project, book, thesis, manuscript, message, CV, your ‘brand’, website, blog, social media presence or that business or personal plan could lead to relaunches and revivals. Look at who you have approached for work or pitched or submitted to in the past. It may now be well worth re-approaching them again. Mars in your 1st hands you the confidence to do this and the result may surprise you as it trines Uranus in your 5th on the 21st. Venus sits in your 4th of home and also long term security and angles back to Jupiter on the same day as the new Moon strikes your 3rd. The news could just be better than expected if you take a chance. Reconnecting or reminding that potential boss, client, agent, publisher that you are still out there and have even more to offer now than before, could pay off in more ways than one this week.
In a nutshell: Sometimes asking a second time brings us a different answer. So, don’t be afraid to reproach those you contacted in the past, Capricorn. You know you have more to offer this time around. The same goes for love. Simply ask again.
Insight directs you towards the answers you seek
Yes, you are worth more, Aquarius
Escape restriction this week!
If you’ve been seeking or waiting for answers, Aquarius, the next few weeks could deliver them. The truth as they say is out there and Mercury retrograde in your 2nd and backing into your 1st during this cycle, will connect you to it. One way or another. The answers you get now are designed to yes, set you free. This may especially apply to your money, assets, home, possessions, side hustle, self-worth, values, talents and skills. And also simply to your soul relationship to the material world. Like it or not, we are spiritual beings having to navigate it. Your sense of what you deserve, what you believe about money and how you expect to be treated – not just in terms of what you are paid but in your relationships too, will be subject to revelations and re-negotiation now.
Jupiter in your 12th is opening your eyes to a different way of thinking and seeing the world. Mars also in here gives you the fearlessness to probe deeper to find the truth behind what you have been led to believe. Boosted by retroactive wisdom from Mercury, you will look closer at what others have been telling you – this includes your family and lovers, about what you deserve or can hope to earn or achieve. Is it actually based on truth? Or simply low expectations, fear or control? Mars trines ruler Uranus in your 4th on the 21st allowing you to examine this inheritance. And replace it with your own values if something simply no longer adds up. The Sun and new Moon in your 2nd promises new beginning with your earning power and money once you free yourself from old attitudes of the past. Or relationships which reflect these. Venus is the ruler of your 2nd but present in Mercury’s 3rd and aspects Jupiter on the 23rd. Expect news or insights which not only boost your self-worth but set you free from those restrictions around what you can have or experience now, Aquarius.
In a nutshell: It’s time to know your worth, Aquarius. And also to weed out anything that tells you you’re not worth it or valued. Those old myths around what you deserve or can have or earn are about to be replaced by a new set of values.
Time for rebirth and reinvention
Happy birthday, Pisces!
Time for a little reinvention perhaps, Pisces? Refining that look, personal brand or message? How about an image update or even a complete overhaul? Check your social media feed and what you put out there now Mercury turns retrograde in your 1st. Mercury retro rules ‘re’ words. And in your 1st it’s all about your image, brand, appearance, title, message and how you come across to others. You best face forward in other words. Is it time for reinvention or a relaunch? You can test market yourself now thanks to the major weather patterns in your 11th of friends, contacts and networks impacting on ruler Neptune in your 1st on the 19th. A touch of glamour or new you is forecast. The Sun arrives in your 1st on the same day telling you it’s New You time. And you have the confidence to launch yourself before a rapt audience. Dare to stand out and be yourself. An opportunity may present itself to do just that around the 21st when Mars in your 11th trines Uranus in your 3rd. Where you are, what you do, say or send out there is important now. Craft a new message.
The new Moon in your 1st on the 23rd marks the official start of your new cycle no matter what date your birthday falls on. Time to set intentions for the future but aside from working on that image, wait to initiate them due to the Merc retro. Venus sits in its ruling 2nd and brings opportunities via those connections as it aligns to Jupiter in your 11th on the same day. Time to attract or to discover what being someone new on some level brings you. It’s time for rebirth, Pisces. So this birthday – don’t hold yourself back.
In a nutshell: This birthday season wants to renew you completely. Honour this energy by making changes to your appearance, style, brand or message. You’ll have more than one opportunity to discover how others will receive this. Get your glam on, birthday sign!
