Valentine’s Day is here, but majestic bulls may have their mind on more practical matters! That’s because a powerful solar eclipse occurs on the 15th in your house of ambition and success. As Thursday’s eclipse draws nearer, you may be thinking long and hard about the plans you’d like to manifest in 2018.
Hey, they might include love, and that’s fine! But under current planetary aspects, your time and patience are both limited. Love planet Venus is in your mature and professional tenth house, which means that you’re going to want a lover who’s drama-free. Chances are too that you want to know where things are going, and the eclipse is a smart time to find out. Helpful, abundant Jupiter is in a good angle from your commitment sector.
Singles, it’s quite likely that you could meet someone within your industry, so attend seminars and conferences. Couples, your best bet for a wonderful Valentine’s Day is to go the traditional route: dinner at a romantic cafe, flowers, chocolates and champagne.
The eclipse is a superb time to map out the next six months, figuring out which goals to go after. Disciplined Saturn is in a good spot, allowing you to plan carefully and logically. Things that you start now could be wrapped up by August. This includes finding a new job or launching a business, but really, any goal that’s important to you should be pursued. Taking a smart risk is encouraged, and if that makes you nervous, run ideas past a mentor or expert who can guide you.
Chatty Mercury rolls into your friendship sector on Saturday, opening up a three-week period in which you can have a lot of fun with the tribe. The Sun will be heading there next week, so networking for business and pleasure are encouraged. Just be careful about loaning money to a pal or donating to a “good cause”. Deceptive Neptune is acting up, indicating that people may not be upfront about financials.
