There are some exciting developments on the romantic and relationship fronts this month, developments that will have implications for months if not years to come. To start with it is business as usual on both fronts. What business as usual looks like is tiny Juno, queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships still in your relationship sector, where she has been since last July. It also means that you start the month with Neptune and Chiron in your romantic sector, on their own since Mars left on New Year's Day. Juno will leave your relationship sector on 11th February, seemingly bringing all focus on your relationships to a close. After all, the Sun doesn't return until late April each year. However, just three days later, Mars has chosen Valentine's Day to return to your relationship sector, for the first time since 2017. Mars will be here when Uranus returns next month to begin a journey that will take until 2026 to complete, with Venus' return to your communication sector on 4th February ensuring there is support from the communication gods from the get go. Meanwhile, on 18th February, a day before the Sun is due to return to your romantic sector, turning the solar spotlight on matters of the heart Chiron, the planet of healing leaves. Since 2010 Chiron has been focused on healing, making it hard to fully embrace Neptune's dreams and fantasies. Chiron leaves and won't return for another 44 years, leaving the way clear for some real growth on the romantic front. No wonder that Mercury, who returns to your romantic sector on 10th February for what should be a two week visit, is instead here for the next two months. With Venus, the planet of love in your communication sector and Mercury, the planet of communication in your romantic sector, communication is a strong theme on the romantic and relationship fronts.
