Aisyah Scopes: February 2018

This month is about putting the building blocks in place for the year ahead.

Here we are again, Magdalene readers, and it’s February! January did seem to drag on more than most months and we had a LOT of activity in the heavens. But now we get short and sweet month that is notable for not featuring a Full Moon and things will calm down for all of us somewhat. But that’s the keyword – somewhat.

There is still a lot going on, particularly at the start of the month and February will be about putting the building blocks in place for the year ahead. So...there is work to be done and you would be wise to put in the time now so that things don’t unravel midyear. We are also in Aquarius season now which is all about community, groups and humanitarian causes, so we are going to see more things like the #MeToo movement and Women’s Marches popping up for the rest of the month. It’s time to get busy!

And remember...if you would like to ask about a personal chart reading then hit me up at [email protected] :)

Here is how February will all go down...

14th February – Valentine’s Day:
Valentine’s Day is of course a day for lovers and this year it could be an interesting time. There could be a rather analytical feeling in the air now as Saturn is in Capricorn; we have the eclipse just around the corner; and we have Venus in Pisces. There is a romantic feeling in the air but many of you may also be seeking answers about where your relationship really stands. Avoid big conversations about ‘the future’ around this time. The eclipse clouds everything.

15th February – Solar Eclipse:
Like I said...February will be a little calmer than January but we still have another eclipse to deal with. This time it’s a Solar Eclipse, which will be one of a series and mirrors the one we had last August. This is going to bring with it extreme weather and another flare up with North Korea. Also look out for another major male political figure being ‘eclipsed’ out of the picture at this time. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

25th February – Venus and Mars Square
We end the month with a Venus and Mars Square which is a tricky aspect for our relationships. Mars is about desire and Venus is about romance, so there could be some tension between the two. Be careful what you say now, particularly if you are part of a couple, as Mars could loosen your tongue and make you flirt with someone who is not good for you!

And now for a look at each sign:

Your chart for February focuses on groups and work, Aries. What does this mean for you? Well, it could be something like collaborating closely with a new partner, or deciding to cut ties with someone you work with if the relationship has become more and more difficult lately. Ultimately, in the age of social media, this could also be about people you work or connect with online, and it might not actually be about paid work but something else. If you volunteer then this group dynamic may be in the spotlight, or you might decide to join a new group now. The most important thing for you to remember is that the decisions that you make now will last for a long time. So take it slow throughout February. Around the 3rd you may feel pushed to make a decision about someone close to you, but you would be better to wait.

You are a quietly ambitious sign, Taurus, and you like to take your time rising to the top. Now, however, as February rolls around, you need to get moving. There is so much activity in your chart linked to work and this is about looking at the bigger picture. There could be opportunities and solutions that you haven’t even thought of on the horizon, but you need to look for them. For some of you this could mean looking outside your local area or maybe across the country. It could even mean overseas. The thing is, you will never know until you open up your mind to all the different possibilities in front of you. Think about where you want to be at the end of the year and then start thinking how you can make it happen. It is time to think outside the box, little bull!

This month is about work for you, Gemini, and this is going to focus on how you make things a reality. You have so many ideas and you are extremely creative but February is really a time when you have to knuckle down and get on with things. Try and nail down some of your projects and plans for the future and reach out to those who can help. You have Leo and Aquarius bopping around in your chart now and this means that you are focused on group activities and the family, or families, such as work groups. There are people who can help you rise to the top this month but the work reality may look a little different than you thought it would. Keep an open mind and stay flexible. If you are open to new opportunities then you could end up ending the month in a much better position than you started it.

The two big themes in your chart now are work and money, Cancer. But you probably already know that. In the last few days of January, money issues could have come to the fore in different ways. Money could have come in or a large chunk could have flowed out, or you could have been offered an opportunity that comes with a significant amount of cash attached. Mortgages, bills and rental costs are all looming in your chart and this is about how you use your money now and in the future. It could also be related to your work and you need to figure out how to maximize your income without burning out completely. This is also linked to the younger generation or your place in the world. Where your roots are and where you want them to be. The decisions you make now about money and work last a long time, so think this through.

This month is your turn in the spotlight, Leo. Naturally, as the Sign of the Lion, this is where you are most comfortable, and now is the time for everyone to hear you roar. The thing now is that you get the chance to really take control of issues in your life and this could come in many forms. But what the universe demands of you is that you step up to the plate and really take command of everything. This doesn’t mean that you need to rush into things, but if you are ready to take on a bigger role at work, at home, or in a relationship then you need to go for it. This is a month when a lot of things could change for you – for the better – but only if you actively reach for opportunities. So think about what you want and then put the rest of the month to good use and make some changes.

We are now in Aquarius season, Virgo, but you will feel it more than most now. This is a time when it is all about the group and about communal activities. As such, you may feel the pull of your community now more than ever and this may mean that you end up volunteering on a community project or spend more time making friends with your neighbours of similar. Groups of all kinds will be important and this could also be about your work life. On that note there is also good news as you will do well when it comes to work and significant career and financial success could come your way this month. This is all about your changing fortune as last year was a tough one – so you have earned this. Spend some time enjoying yourself as well as working hard, as you deserve to savour this moment after several months of stress.

Right...we all know that you have had a hard few years, Libra. This is how astrology works sometimes and you have gone through your fair share of ups and downs. Now, however, you need to spend February putting this behind you. Think of this month as a fresh start, but that fresh start only comes at the end of February after you have done the work. Because you have had a hard time of it lately, you could be holding on to hurt, pain and grudges, but now is the time to let these go. You need to focus on a healthy new future and think about how you see your role in the world in the future, then take steps to get there. Focus on your health, your diet, your routines and everything that helps you to balance the scales again. This is the time for you to reset, recharge and then get back out there.

Home is where the heart is...or is it, Scorpio? Only you know the answer to that but your chart is all about your home and your place in the world. This could also be the online world that you have built for yourself and how both a physical home and a virtual world are serving you now. Is there room for improvement? It may be that you get the chance to travel this month and this could raise some questions for you about where you want to live and where you feel most comfortable. This will be a month of asking yourself some questions and, ultimately, as we move into March, making some decisions about exactly where you fit in. There is also a sense that some of this could have been brewing for a while and now is the time to confront it head on. Where do you see yourself?

There is a communication issue in your chart now, Sagittarius which will take up some time in February. The thing is that we are also in Aquarius season and this means that we are consumed by groups and our place in the world. With that in mind, you could have to deal with lots of different people and competing personalities and this could cause communication to go awry. It may sound dull, but you really need to try and put all of this behind you and sort it out. If you have been arguing with someone then, now is the time to get back on the same page. This goes for romantic relationships, work colleagues, or family members – anyone who has been causing you some kind of communication conflict. Deal with this as soon as you can and then enjoy the rest of the month.

You need to sort out some of your relationships now, Capricorn. Sometime in 2017, one or a few of your relationships had some issues and now you need to get back on track. There is a sign in your chart that you have problems when it comes to group dynamics and this could mean that you have to deal with several family members who are arguing with each other or similar, and you will have to be the pacemaker and sort out their mess. But you would do well to play this role now, as this is the time to put the past behind you and really make some of your relationships harmonious again. Once you do this, other things will start to fall into place as well. Everything will improve, including your work and romantic life once you deal with a relationship that is causing you tension. So get to it!

Happy Birthday, Aquarius! We are now in Aquarius season so you are right at home with the astrological weather. The theme for you this month is relationships, Aquarius, and you need, like all signs, to do some hard work in that area. This is really about your romantic life and it applies equally if you are coupled or single. If you are in a relationship, then this is about getting real or getting serious. What do you want and what does your partner want? Are they the same thing? If not, then you need to put in the work to get on the same page. If you are single, then you also need to get serious about what you really want. If the dating scene has been wearing you down, then maybe you don’t need to keep putting yourself out there all the time if you are fine spending time doing your own thing. Find that balance that makes you happy.

Dear Pisces, you need to stop and take a break. You know what this is about. In 2017, and especially over the last few months, you have been taking on a huge amount of work and responsibility – which is admirable. But it is like the safety video on an airplane when they tell you to put on your oxygen mask before you help others. The message now is that you need to take care of yourself in February and this applies to your diet, your work-life balance, and how you divide up roles and responsibilities at work or at home. You simply can’t work as effectively as possible if you are exhausted, so think about how you can help yourself this month. Deal with any minor health issues now and then get back on track and steer the ship in the right direction. It’s not selfish to focus on your own needs this month – it’s time.
