Jupiter skids to a halt and changes direction and as it is in Libra it will be your subconscious and imagination that dominates your thoughts, therefore we need to do our best not to allow fears, phobias, insecurities and anxieties to get the better of us. You will come to realise that one or two of your fantasies can never be fulfilled, which leaves room for you to concentrate on other possibilities. Concerns around financial security and money matters come to the fore and if you are feeling a little
bit light in the pocket, put out a few feelers and see if you can make some extra cash.

This is a very busy month for the planets and much of the time will be focused on your friends and family. The Sun in Aquarius until the 18th February, indicates that if you are a freelance worker, there is plenty that you can do to improve your prospects by networking.

Career and Finances:

You may not be exactly mean but you do like to see what you have got for your money. Sometimes that isn’t clear cut until later on. On the career front you could be mixing business with pleasure and a lunchtime drink or evening meal with a colleague may provide much
more than you have anticipated.
