February Money ‘Scopes by Jasmine Wolfe

Aries

Venus will be in Aries for most of the month after it enters your sign on the 7th. This makes you warmer, more inventive, and more creative. It is also particularly good for any Aries independent artists out there, expect a thicker wallet under this transit. Venus will be conjunct Black Moon Lilith in Aries on the 9th, the same day as the Leo full moon, making this a good day to call upon and celebrate your sexual power an assert yourself as an authority figure. You can expect things to move quickly for you on the 9th, in a good way! The 10th should be a day of rest, you may experience some lethargy today and it should be honored. On the 16th Mars enters Capricorn and when it reaches the degree of your Aries sun (or moon or rising) you can expect an unforeseen event which forces you to halt all progress. This is because you need to slow down and rework your plan. Mercury stations retrograde on the 17th, don’t panic! Just be prepared to learn a few things about subtle communication (body language, intuition, etc). The new moon in Pisces is on the 23rd; this is a good day to just let things flow. If you stay in the present moment, you’ll find yourself in a “right place, right time” moment. The moon will be in Aries on the 25th, 26th, and 27th which will be lucky days for you.

Taurus

The 1st and the 2nd are lucky days for you as the moon will be in Taurus. When the Taurus moon is at the same degree as your sun (or moon or rising), you can expect something you need to come your way. On the 5th you will be compelled to have a serious conversation about the ways in which you have changed and hope to continue to change; draw or do something creative. With Venus moving into Aries on the 7th it’s a good time to practice doing things for yourself. I’m not talking about self care, I’m talking about doing something that you’ve always wanted to do but have held back due to fear. Be on the look out for a chance encounter regarding this, make sure you say yes! The Leo full moon is on the 9th and you will feel a shift today, moving from your stubborn bull horns and dropping more so into your heart center. Mars enters fellow earth sign Capricorn on the 16th of the month. This is big building energy for you, but what are you building? The next day Mercury stations retrograde in Pisces, which presents you with an opportunity to focus on art and beauty as a means of communication. On the 21st you will feel compelled to burn something down in order to start new, or you may be forced to do so. The 28th and 29th the moon will be in Taurus again, one last burst of lucky energy to end the month on.

Gemini

Mercury enters Pisces on the 3rd and when Mercury hits the same degree as your sun (or moon or rising) you will experience something that forces you to take action around how attentively you listen to others, stemming from an inability to do so in the recent past. But the moon will be in Gemini from the 3rd to the 5th, which will be lucky days for you and good time to launch any new project or habit. Venus moves into Aries on the 7th, which is a great transit for anyone who is in business for themselves: small business owners, independent contractors, or gig jobs. But this is also a great time to stand up for yourself at work, talk to your boss, talk to HR, ask for the raise, or ask for the promotion. Opportunity follows you under this transit. Mars enters Capricorn on the 16th. This is a two month transit and it will push you to release a few things in your life so you can better focus on one big goal, project, habit, or belief.

Something on this day is going to trigger a deep wound, write a blog post about it because someone needs to hear what you have to say.

Cancer

Mercury enters Pisces on the 3rd, and since it stations retrograde on the 17th, the communication planet will be in this water sign for a long time! Expect all of your friends to come to you in these coming weeks to talk about their all consuming emotions. Instead of saying, “WeLcOmE tO mY eNtIrE LiFe!” practice active listening and see what you can learn about others as well as yourself. The moon will be in Cancer from the 5th through the 7th which will be a good time for you to do anything that may require a little bit of luck. On the 9th, you won’t know what it is you are releasing with the full moon in Leo until the moment it happens. Stay very present on that day so that you don’t miss this opportunity to drop into your heart center. Mars moves into polar sign Capricorn on the 16th and will remain there for about two months. During this transit, when Mars hits the exact degree of your sun (or moon or rising) sign, you will have to make a decision about your future. Mercury stations retrograde on the 17th in Pisces; this is a transit that brings a lot of momentum towards lessons that have yet to be learned. The mishaps will flow, it’s ok to cry angry or frustrated tears, just look for the lesson. Every retrograde provides a lesson. The month ends with a Pisces new moon on the 23rd; Undealt with pain comes to light under this moon. Take a bath, hold space for the pain, let it flow down the drain and walk out of the bathroom a new person.

Leo

Money is good in February with Venus moving into Aries on the 7th. You can expect to gain more authority and autonomy in your career and business under independent Aries. In fact, the 7th, 8th, and 9th are going to be good days to ask for a raise or launch a new offer since the moon will be in Leo. When the moon is in Leo, more so than usual, everybody will be buying what you’re selling! So, the full moon on the 9th will be a good day to release something, or some project, that is no longer heart centered for you. Meaning, if your heart isn’t in it, you won’t need it going forward. Next, Mars enters Capricorn on the 16th, which will help you get more serious about the actual steps and process of achieving your dreams. But then Mercury stations retrograde on the next day, the 17th! Mishaps are likely to happen, but they are here to inform you about what you need to release and change in your life; listening is apart of being a good conversationalist.

Whatever it is, independence bodes well for your bank account with Venus moving into Aries on the 7th.  The 9th through the 11th are good days to launch something new or put yourself out there since the moon will be in Virgo. Moon days are just a bit luckier. Next, with Mars moving into Capricorn on the 16th, your plans will be set in motion in a big way. Everything will go according to plan regarding work and business, but any flaws in the plan will also come to light.

When Venus reaches the same degree of your Libra sun (or moon or rising) sign the decision will present itself. The Leo full moon is a few days later, on the 9th. This day will present an opportunity to release a burden, it’s either something or someone that you just can’t carry anymore. Do what’s best for you, boo. The 11th through the 13th will prove to be lucky, high vibe days, with the moon transiting through Libra.

This will be especially important after the 7th, when Venus moves into Aries because your work and business will thrive monetarily if you can commit to being authentic. Release some of that mystique and get raw with what you do and how you do it. You’re pushed into the spotlight in some way on the 9th under the Leo full moon. This makes you feel uncomfortable, but it’s your job to figure out the root cause of why that is. Do you not feel worthy? Are you afraid of success? The 14th and 15th are high vibe days, so if you need to do something that requires a bit of luck, plan it for that day. And then Mars moves into Capricorn the next day, on the 16th!

Sagittarius

Mercury enters Pisces on the 3rd and will be moving direct and retrograde in this water sign for, honestly, a few months. This is a huge learning phase for you, so expect outside forces to push you towards using your intuition and taking things slowly, which may be a little hard to do after Venus moves into Aries on the 7th. This is a great omen for anyone in business for themselves, who does gig work, or is an independent contractor, since individuality and independence bode well for fellow fire sign Aries. Be careful not to lend out money under this transit though.

Mars moves into your sun (or moon or rising) sign on the 16th and will be there for about 2 months. This adds more drive and passion to your work, especially as it gets closer to the exact degree of your sun sign. Mercury will station retrograde for the first time this decade on the 17th. This is going to be an opportunity for you to heal old wounds around miscommunication. How can you better tell your story?

An event outside of your control will push you to do something drastic in the name of your career or business. You weren’t born a Capricorn to play small, after all.

Aquarius

Venus moves into Aries on the 7th, and as Venus nears the same degree as your sun (or moon or rising) sign, be on the look out for an opportunity to embark on a new money-making journey.

The new moon in Pisces happens the next day, the 23rd. This is an ideal time to pay attention to synchronicities. If there were any day of your life to not believe in coincidences, it’s the 23rd of February.

Pisces

Mercury is going to be in Pisces for a very long time this year starting on the 3rd. This is an opportunity for you to shine with your words, your music, your art, and your intuition. You fluently speak the language that everyone will be struggling to learn in these next two months. The full moon in Leo will be on the 9th and it will have a particularly strong energy of release for you. Move from the sadness of your gut to the empowerment of your heart. Trust this shift. Next Mars moves into Capricorn on the 16th, and as Mars moves closer to the exact degree of your sun (or moon or rising) sign you will be able to create a new opportunity in your life.

Art is one of the best road maps to intuition. On the 20th, Jupiter in Capricorn sextiles Neptune in Pisces, making this a great day to launch or push forward with that life long dream mentioned above. The 23rd ends the month’s transits with a new moon in Pisces. Take a bath, water scry, cry, become reborn.

Career Tarot Forecast

 

Happy back to school season, especially for those of us in the School of Life. This is the first week of the whole summer where all personal planets are all moving direct, and while that usually motivates us to get back into the swing of things, we may still feel sluggish due to the sheer weight of all that we’ve experienced during this past couple months. Try to focus on steadily integrating lessons rather than pushing forward at top speed.

The Hermit guides us through the first couple weeks of September, which is very appropriate for Virgo season. He is facing the past, shining the light of his wisdom on all that we have gone through in the past two months, giving us time to discern what it is that we truly want to carry through to the manifestation phase in the coming harvest season. With the Hermit as our guide, we are being asked to release outdated expectations in favor of what truly matters to us. 9, the Hermit’s number, is all about the process of purging what is finished and integrating what is our’s as we step into the next phase of our journey. And so we begin at an ending: what is holding us back? How can we let the dead things fall away? The Hermit makes these decisions in quiet and solitude, so make time for reflection, especially at the new moon in Virgo on September 9th.

While the Hermit requires solitude, the 4 of Pentacles reminds us not to isolate ourselves to the point of disconnection. Sharing time and energy will open us up to new opportunities. We may be afraid of being taken advantage of or of not being valued in the workplace, but creating a barrier between ourselves and others, seeing our job as “just a job” will make us feel small and may even have a negative impact on our career in the long-run. It is better to take conscious steps towards something we desire than to move through where we are as only a shell of ourselves.

That said, if you are feeling stuck and can’t take big leaps towards your dream job this month, make a concerted effort to open up to friends, partners, and family, valuing community to help you maintain a more satisfying work / life balance. The 4 of Pentacles asks us to focus less on what we have and more on what we have to share. With the Lovers card representing the last part of the month, it seems that our work in solitude with the Hermit and the way we use our experience of the “little emperor” (4 of Pentacles) leads us to a fork in the road. The Lovers card speaks to the moral obligation we have to make commitments that nourish our soul’s purpose. Are we committed to our path or are we floating? Either way, it’s ok! Wandering is vital to making any commitment. The Lovers are there to remind us that we have a duty to ourselves to be honest about where we are and what we feel called to do with our lives for the good of humankind. You may be looking at a great collaboration or the opportunity to join a team that inspires you. Where the Hermit cautioned us, the Lovers asks us to reach out and share ideas, openly seeking our place in the world.

 

Balancing Your Shadow Self With Your Outward Self

Your true desires are often carried out by impulses, which don’t think of the big picture. Acting in this way lands you in hot water, and then scars you because you’re afraid to take another leap. So, what do we do to take careful steps around achieving what our shadow self wants the most for…
