If you’re an artist who’s been waiting for artistic inspiration, it’s finally arrived. On February 8, the sun-Mercury conjunction will send creative ideas to your whimsical fifth house, tapping into the right side of your brain and allowing the poetry to flow from your fingertips. However, by February 10, Mercury retrograde will square off with Mars in your eighth house of taboos. This may cause your mind to enter dark territory. Art is important, but don’t forget to take care of your mental wellbeing.
However, you may be realizing how essential it is to keep up with your creative hobbies by February 11. The new moon in your artistic fifth house will inspire you to set creative goals for yourself and experiment with new mediums. Even if you’re not a professional artist, creative expression will only serve to inform your career and develop your mental strength. Plus, you’ll enjoy infusing your career with a little color as Venus and Jupiter support this decision.
By February 13, the moon in your sixth house of productivity will square off with the North Node in your expansive ninth house—reminding you that sometimes, embracing detours in your plans is the best course of action.
