You’ve long been aware you’ll need to make changes in elements of your life. But every time you make a plan, circumstances force you to rethink it. Don’t worry. Each vision of the future is a rehearsal for the lasting arrangements you’ll make, probably after mid-March’s Pisces New Moon, which brings the necessary fresh perspective. Until then, focus on what must go, even if what’s next is unclear. Trust instincts that things will be amazing. Events will soon reveal how right they are.
Exciting as you find the often unexpected changes in both existing arrangements and future plans triggered by eclipses, on 31 January and 15 February, not everybody agrees. Explain why you’re getting involved but be aware you may need to go it alone, at least initially. Regard both plans and what you actually do as an experiment, and you’ll learn from everything. What you experience and who you encounter will be rewarding personally, now, and will reshape your life on wonderful ways during 2018.
Sometimes obstacles are simply difficulties to be overcome, nothing more. But because eclipses, in late January and on 15 February, indicate changes in your work, lifestyle or priorities, disruptive events are about exploring alternatives. While some will be immediately appealing, don’t dismiss others too swiftly. Many could resolve persistent problems. Also, you’re likely to encounter ideas so new they seem unrealistic. Despite that, explore everything, and in depth. What’s seems least promising initially could turn out brilliantly, now and in the future.
Most Geminis are naturally inquisitive. But there are certain activities, places and people you’ve experienced and decided you’ve had enough. However, frequent and often sudden changes in circumstances are forcing you to either revisit these or venture into areas you’re convinced won’t interest you. However, certain events and individuals draw you in, more swiftly and powerfully than you’d imagined possible. Explore, no more. February is about discovery, not decision-making. For now, enjoy learning for the sake of it, knowing solid plans can wait.
For ages you’ve hoped those closest in your personal or working life would recognise how much you’ve supported them. Suddenly you’re receiving acknowledgment from them and, happily but unexpectedly, from others as well. Enjoy this. But, even more, take up their offers to help you deal with challenging situations and, as much, to achieve longstanding but challenging goals. While these are within your reach, you definitely need the boost only certain individuals can give. After that, the rest should be smooth sailing.
During January everybody, including you, will be obsessively planning. This involves dealing with the rather chaotic end of 2017 and the resulting intriguing yet often bizarre opportunities. While the dramatic events triggered by the Leo eclipsed Full Moon on 31 January may seem more of the same, these are actually kick-starting a cycle of growth, but in surprising ways and unanticipated directions. While somewhat perplexing, you’ll be excited - personally, romantically, creatively and professionally - in ways you haven’t been for ages.
Ordinarily you’re happiest when you’ve investigated here and now matters and what’s coming, have organised what you can and have researched anything unfamiliar. Yet during February, as you’ll swiftly realise, the focus is on letting go of unworkable elements of the past, personal, romantic or at work. Some have run their course, others proved unwise. In every case, focus on learning from these now, and by the Virgo Full Moon in early March, you’ll be making choices as courageous as they are wise.
Nobody is better than sidestepping potential clashes better than a Libra. However, even you have been struggling with longstanding issues that have, over the past months, turned in to increasingly serious misunderstandings. So you’ll welcome the clear cut problems that arise during February’s first half as an excuse to discuss and deal with these matters frankly. Bizarrely, the sudden and often unsettling events triggered eclipses, on 31 January and 15 February, which force even stubborn individuals to make changes, ease the way.
As a Scorpio, you’re unusually observant, so are unlikely to be surprised by seemingly minor issues that force everybody, including you, to rethink elements of your everyday life, priorities or career. What’s more, because many changes are overdue, you’re relieved. Still, things remain worryingly unsettled. Actually, this is the influence of bountiful Jupiter, which is positioned in Scorpio and is encouraging you to meet new people and explore unfamiliar pursuits. What you experience will prove far more rewarding than you’d conceived possible.
The move by forthright Mars into Sagittarius on 26 January begins a seven-week period during which events, including challenges, are prompting you to rethink elements of your life, alliances and goals. While you’ve known certain of changes were inevitable, a few are annoying or seem unnecessary. Still, explore these and you’ll soon realise why it’s time to question even settled arrangements. You’ve numerous options, and since many won’t be clear until mid-March, rushing decisions would only complicate matters. Take it slow, savouring this process.
When it comes to challenges, you’re adept at spotting and analysing what, and who, needs to be dealt with. But now, events and the manoeuvres of others have you mystified. That’s no surprise. While the move by your ruler Saturn into Capricorn, last December, will ultimately be rewarding, you’re currently facing either changes you’ve been avoiding or haven’t even thought about. Ordinarily you’d make a single plan. Instead, tackle these in stages. That allows you to learn, and as you proceed, review your vision.
For ages you’ve been trying to blend longstanding elements of your life with potentially disruptive changes. The powerful Aquarius eclipsed Full Moon, on 15 February, turns ideas into events, often more dramatic than you’d conceived possible. Instead of trying to minimise these, dive into these. And, ideally, ensure those closest, personally, friends or colleagues are involved, too. When you’re anxious they won’t just join in, they’ll encourage you. Soon you’ll wonder why you were hesitant about what’s arisen, for even a moment.
