For the first time since September 2017 you begin the month with no planetary activity in your romantic sector and there will be none until Venus and Mercury return in October. However, as over 15 months of planetary activity only ended late last month, there is no excuse for letting matters of the heart go off the boil. There is no excuse, but that doesn't mean this isn't something you have to fight for, especially as this year is on a fairly unstoppable professional roll. However, one of the keys to keeping the spirit of romance alive is keeping the spirit of adventure alive, with the two having gone hand in hand over the last two years. Apart from the Moon's visit to your romantic sector from 24th February to 26th February, there is no direct input from the love gods. It is a different story on the relationship front, where things take a real turn for the better this month. This was always going to be a major year for friendship and relationship building, but after the Sun and Mercury left your relationship sector last month, things have dialled back. That changes with Venus, the planet of love's return on 4th February and her position here for the rest of the month. It is 10 days later that Mars will return to your friendship sector, on Valentine's Day, bringing with him the anticipated friendship and relationship building support. Once this locks into place it is here to stay, as in right through to Pluto's departure from your relationship sector in 2024. The Moon will return to your relationship sector, stirring your emotional responses from 1st February to 4th February, leaving just hours before Venus' return. Meanwhile, a Full Moon in your communication sector on 20th February will bring a chance to jump start the communication lines.
