Monthly Career Horoscopes - February 2021
While there is a significant downgrading of the amount of planetary activity on the career front this will reduce the pressure and the urgency while allowing things to flow more smoothly. When Venus leaves your career sector on 2nd February she will leave Pluto, the planet of change and revolution on his own here for the first time since 2017. While it was Saturn and Jupiter's departure in December that ended years of extreme focus, they left just a day before the Sun returned and it wasn't until he left last month that the spotlight was finally taken off career matters. Venus, who didn't visit your career sector at all in 2020 was able to stay on and as the planet of money, this has given her time to work with Mars in your income sector to steer this professional year in a lucrative direction. Venus is still here at the start of the month and as you will also begin the month with the Moon in your work sector, there are positive conditions across the income, work and career fronts on day one. The Moon will leave your work sector on 2nd February, just a few hours after Venus leaves and hands the reins over to Pluto, who will keep the engine of this professional year ticking over but in a way that shifts the focus back to the long game. The Moon will not only return to your work sector on 27th February but as a Full Moon. The only way that the Moon can begin and end the month in your work sector is during a 28 day month and as this is the month when things are transitioning from an urgent to a more long term professional focus, the timing couldn't be better. A Full Moon can bring work and job matters to fruition or to a head, turning and/or tipping point but a friendly aspect to Mars and Pluto will extend its influence across the income, work and career fronts.
Because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of February in your career sector, the solar spotlight is always on your career and professional situation, matters and options at this time of year. However, what is not the norm is to have Jupiter and Saturn, the two most powerful planets here and in the early months of their campaign to create major professional growth and to see you take your professional power back. Because the Sun is just passing through, as are Mercury and Venus but Saturn is here until 2023 and Jupiter will spend the first and the last five months of the year here, this is an overlapping of the short and the long game. Jupiter and Saturn are playing the long game with Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion having until December to achieve what is possible professionally while Saturn will spend the next few years giving you the resolve to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes. On the other hand, even though a retrograde turn late last month is keeping Mercury here for two months instead of the two weeks that he would normally spend here, he is still part of the short game and the job of getting this new professional year up to speed. Until turning retrograde on 21st February, Mercury is giving you a chance to spend time back at the drawing board. It is Mercury's intellectually savvy edge that will make it easier to determine what goes into the 'short game' basket and needs addressing now and what goes in the 'long game' basket, where you have the rest of the year to achieve what you want. The only planet not yet here at the start of the month is Venus, whose return on 2nd February will put every planet that will visit your career sector this year all here at the same time. That will remain the case until the Sun leaves on 18th February, while Venus will spend her time fuelling your professional confidence, attracting opportunities and steering things in a lucrative direction. Meanwhile, keep an eye out for 12th February and a day either side for these will be auspicious days.
While it is business as usual on the professional front, with not a lot if anything having changed since last month or even since last year, there is change in the air. Business as usual means that you have dreamy Neptune and the dwarf planet Ceres in your career sector, where they have been working as a team since last April to update your professional dreams, needs and priorities. Neptune has been here since 2012 and while Ceres usually returns to spend three months here every four years, a retrograde turn has kept her here. However, it wasn't until last month that Neptune and Ceres finally aligned, for what was the last time here in our lifetime. Ceres will leave on 21st February, her job done but not before reinforcements arrive and it is time to start putting those needs and priorities into action. It is three days earlier that the Sun will return to your career sector, something that happens at this time every year and is the change that a sense of anticipation will be hinting at from the get go. The Sun turns the solar spotlight onto your career and professional situation, matters and options at this time every year but even this won't fully answer a sense of anticipation that could become even stronger. This is partly because you will be picking up on Venus' approach, returning on 26th February to fuel your professional confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction. Held back by a retrograde phase Mercury won't return until next month but with the Sun and Venus still here, there will be time enough then to get your head in the game and around your options. This gives the Sun time to simply hold the solar spotlight on your career situation and matters along with the professional dreams, needs and priorities already banked. The Sun, Mercury and Venus return to your career sector at around the same time every year but by the time the Sun returns Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion will be less than three months away, suggesting that this is just a stepping stone to something much bigger and more game changing.
There is a mix of the expected and the unexpected during what is a much needed overdue quiet month professionally and that includes on the job and career fronts. It was just last month that Mars not only left your career sector, wrapping up his longest visit to your career sector in 32 years but just two days later that Venus left your work sector. On both fronts, this didn't leave things empty but what it did is slow things down enough to take away the urgency and pressure that dogged the second half of 2020. It is hard to go from constantly having your foot on the gas to slowing down to the right pace which is why this month is so important. That is because with the Sun and Venus returning to your career sector next month, this is just a brief pause before the pace picks up again. This makes this month an important chance to work with the forces still in your work and career sectors to establish a new normal. On the job front, this means the asteroid Juno, the queen of commitment and the South Node. One is giving you the commitment to stick to the resolve you began the year with and the latter is constantly giving you access to untapped job potential. However, the lunar nodes are also policing that you know when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off. At the same time, the dwarf planet Eris is keeping the wheels turning on the career front and as the warrior princess of the cosmos, is keeping Mars' passions and fighting spirit alive but without the urgency. The unexpected development this month is the dwarf planet Ceres' return to your career sector on 21st February. This won't see the pace or urgency pick up but with two dwarf planets working together this will increase the resources you have to draw on. However, while Eris is focused on keeping the wheels turning and not on reinventing the wheel, Ceres' return is a chance to update your professional needs and priorities ahead of the Sun and Venus' return next month.
While this has all the makings of a good month professionally, with some real momentum possible it is during the first and the final two days of the month that there are some extremely positive conditions across the income, work and career fronts. While there is continuous planetary activity on the job and career fronts and none on the income front, starting and ending the month with the Moon in your income sector gives you an additional advantage. Not just because this brings income potential into the equation but because as the Moon moves through it will form a friendly aspect to planets on the job and career fronts, energising all three areas of your chart. What makes the timing auspicious is that while the Moon will leave your income sector on 2nd February, it will leave just a few hours after Venus leaves your work sector, wrapping up her mission to fuel your job confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction. Before leaving the Moon will form a friendly aspect to Pluto, the planet that will keep the wheels turning on the job front and to Mars, who is spending his first, last and only full month in your career sector. Mars faced some pressure, intensity and volatility during his early weeks in your career sector but that has eased back. At the same time, after Jupiter and Saturn's departure from your work sector in December, Venus' departure will leave Pluto on his own for the first time here since 2019. With so much banked over the last three years and especially last year, Pluto will be happy for a chance to once again play the long game. The only way that it is possible to start and end the month with the Moon in your income sector is during a 28 day month and the timing couldn't be better. When the Moon returns on 27th February it will be as a Full Moon and as it once again forms a friendly aspect to Mars and Pluto this will energise things across the income, work and career fronts in the final 48 hours of the month.
Because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of February in your work sector the solar spotlight is always on your work situation, job matters and options at this time of year. However, this year there is a mix of the ordinary and the extraordinary as well as an overlapping of the short and a long game. Because the Sun, Mercury and Venus all return to your work sector in or close to January each year, this is part of the annual focus on work and job matters that you will get at the start of each new professional year. Even Mercury, who has turned retrograde and will remain here all month, is just passing through and with the Sun leaving on 18th February and Venus only here from 2nd February to 26th February, their focus is short term. As much as they are working to give you a sense of direction and are working to get work and job matters off to a good start, they are simply doing what they do each year. However, they are not on their own and for the first time since Jupiter and Saturn returned in December the full extent of their influence can be felt. With Saturn in your work sector until 2023 and Jupiter spending the first and the last five months of 2021 here, they are playing a long game. As the planet of luck and expansion, Jupiter is on a mission to promote job growth and expansion while Saturn is giving you the resolve to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes. It is this overlapping of the short and the long game that allows the Sun, Mercury and Venus to feed information through to the planets staying on while knowing that will they are just passing through, what they began will remain in safe hands. Until he turns direct on 21st February Mercury is giving you a chance to spend time back at the drawing board. Meanwhile, there are some auspicious conditions in play around 12th February and a day or two either side. This is not only because there is a New Moon here on 12th February but at the same time that Venus and Jupiter will align. This will put the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn and the Moon all there at the same time for the only time this year, putting every available resource on the table.
To begin with, it is business as usual on the job front, apart from a sense of anticipation and of change in the air. The month may even begin with the brakes on, as the Moon not only begins the month in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart but clashed with both planets in your work sector. This is the same clash that happens every four weeks and is a chance to put how well you know when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off to the test. The Moon will be gone by 2nd February but it is important to pay attention and not just because this is a reminder from the get go to work smarter and to pace yourself. When the Moon comes full circle it will return as a Full Moon on 27th February and the reminders will be a lot harder to ignore. Life is also set to become a lot busier by then, with what has been until now business as usual set to change. Business as usual means that dreamy Neptune, in your work sector since 2012 working with the dwarf planet Ceres, who since last April has been helping you to define your needs and priorities on the job front. Especially when it comes to job satisfaction and a sense of purpose. Until now this has been more academic and has been going for so long that it has been your normal. That will change with the Sun's return on 18th February, turning the solar spotlight onto your work situation, job matters and options at this time every year. The difference is that you haven't had Ceres just spend 10 months helping you to update your needs and priorities on the job front, something she will normally only spend three months on every four years. Ceres has been preparing for something big and not just the Sun's return on 18th February or Venus' return on 26th February. However, with her job done Ceres will leave on 21st February. There will still be a sense that you are waiting for something with Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion less than three months away from his first visit in 12 years by then.
The pace has dialled back since Mars left your work sector last month but he left the engines on idle and the dwarf planet Eris, the warrior princess of the cosmos at the wheel. When Mars left last month, wrapping up his longest visit in 32 years, Eris was at a standstill in her final days in retrograde motion here, giving you a chance to pull back. This had as much impact as pulling the emergency brake on a runaway train but over time she has managed to pull things back. Back in direct motion and gaining speed, Eris never wanted to halt things completely, just find a more manageable pace. This is important because this is giving you a chance to catch your breath before the Sun and Venus return next month, beginning a new chapter. However, this is not just the first quiet month in well over seven months and a chance to catch your breath before the pace picks up again but is a chance to reflect on the months Mars spent here and regroup before the next phase begin. Helping you to do that is the dwarf planet Ceres, who will return to your work sector for the first time in four years on 21st March. Having two dwarf planets in your work sector is definitely better than one but especially as they will perform two very different roles. As the warrior princess of the cosmos, Eris job is to not only keep the wheels turning but to continue to stoke the fires of your work passions, fighting and competitive spirit. Not to the same degree that Mars did but as he has already got things up to speed, all she has to do is keep the wheels turning but at a more manageable pace. Ceres' focus is on your needs and priorities and she begins her first deep dive into job satisfaction and a sense of purpose in four years a month before the Sun and Venus will return to begin the next phase.
This month has all the ingredients for a good month across the income, work and career fronts with the final and the early days of the month setting the scene for everything in between. The month begins and ends with the Moon in your career sector, something that is only possible in a 28 day month but will ensure that you begin and end the month with your professional instincts and imagination fuelled. However, it is not as simple as that, with the Moon here during Venus' final hours in your income sector and forming a friendly aspect to Mars in your work sector before leaving. When the Moon comes full circle it will be to create a Full Moon in your career sector on 27th February. As well as ending the month how it began, the Moon's friendly aspect to Mars on the job and Pluto on the income front will energise things across the income, work and career fronts. As February is Mars' first, last and only full month in your work sector the timing couldn't be better, especially as the volatility of his early weeks here have dialled back. Held back by a retrograde phase Mars never managed to return to your work sector in 2020 so is ready to make up for lost time and not returning until 2022, to create ongoing momentum. When Mars returned last month he was a little too hot to handle at first, fired up by an alignment with Uranus and the kind of pressure from other planets that could have felt like they were compelling or goading you to take action. This may have created pressure or a sense of impulsiveness but in the process gave you a chance to push through old roadblocks or barriers on the job front, whether real or imagined. This is something that you can benefit from this month, with Mars continuing to fuel your work passions, fighting and competitive spirit before leaving on 5th March.
While this is a fairly quiet month professionally it is not only just the way you want it but this is still likely to be a good month across the income, work and career fronts. It is more that compared to how busy things are set to become when Mars returns to your work sector early next month, things are relatively quiet. While there is no planetary activity in either of your two professional houses, having the North Node in your work sector is providing a steady sense of direction and purpose, something that will keep work and job matters on track for the rest of the year. This is something that Mars will benefit from when he returns early next month. However, there is something that is helping to boost your job confidence while creating positive conditions on the income and job fronts and that is a raft of support from the planets moving through your income sector. During the course of the month the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter will all form a friendly aspect to the North Node in what is just the start of a major coming together of income and job matters over the coming months. You will see evidence of this several days either side of 7th February, again on 10th February, 15th February and 27th February. The latter brings Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion into the picture and this could have a larger and more positive impact on income and job matters. The other factor is the Moon, whose visit to your career sector from 2nd February to 4th February will bring all the different threads together. As well as fuelling your professional instincts and imagination and delivering valuable clues, hunches and insights in the early days of the month, the Moon will form a friendly aspect to the North Node and to the line up of planets in your income sector. This will get the month off to a positive start across the income, work and career fronts.
With no planetary activity in either of your two professional houses this month, as you would expect at this time of year, this puts a lot more weight on the Moon's visit to both but also puts more focus on the money. It is the Sun's return to your income sector on 18th February and Venus, the planet of money's return on 26th February that will begin what will be the most potentially lucrative weeks of the year so far. This will be dwarfed by Jupiter's return in May, by which time things will be a lot more active professionally and especially on the job front. This makes the timing of the Moon's return to your work sector auspicious and a chance to start weaving income and job matters together. The Moon will move through your work sector from 22nd February to 24th February, giving you an intuitive read on work and job matters, acting as a trigger but also forming a friendly aspect to the Sun and Neptune in your income sector. While the Moon and Neptune form this friendly aspect every four weeks, this is just days after the Sun returns to kick off a more active income phase. This will create a positive few days across the income and job fronts while giving work and job matters a chance to hitch a ride on the new momentum being created on the income front. It is much earlier in the month that the Moon will make its monthly visit to your career sector, fuelling your professional instincts and imagination and delivering valuable clues, hunches and insights from 4th February to 6th February. This will also see the Moon form a friendly aspect to Neptune in your income sector and while the Sun has yet to return, with the dwarf planet Ceres not leaving until 21st February this will be the last chance to check in with her. In a month that is more about the money, the Moon brings what is needed to keep job and career matters on track and in line with what is happening on the income front.
When Venus left your career sector last month she was the last of the faster planets to leave, those that return in the final months of each year and sometimes linger into the early weeks of the New Year. Held back by a retrograde phase last year Venus was late to return and that meant she began 2021 here and this is an advantage you will continue to benefit from. This was not her 2021 visit, which will come later in the year but a late start and end to her 2020 visit which allowed you to end on professional year and begin the next with Venus on board but also with a sense of continuity. While Venus left last month she didn't leave you on your own, leaving behind the asteroid Juno and the South Node. Juno is the queen of commitment and while she will normally spend around two months here every four years, a retrograde turn will keep her here until November. Already this has turned the desires and expectations Venus left you with into a professional game plan and resolutions, something you will find it easy to stick to this year. The South Node, on the other hand, will not only give you access to untapped professional potential throughout the coming year but is the reason for a total lunar eclipse here in May and a total solar eclipse in December. These will be the tips of the iceberg and the catalyst for what continues to bubble away all year. So while things are fairly quiet and it is business as usual this month, the professional gods have left the engines running, making it easier to stay on track. The Moon's visit to your career sector from 6th February to 8th February will fuel your professional instincts and imagination and bring a chance to check in while also creating the potential to act as a trigger. It is the Moon's return to your work sector from 25th February to 27th February that will do more than give you an intuitive read on work and job matters. Coming full circle from a Full Moon late last month, this could act as a catalyst for unexpected developments across the income, work and career fronts.
