Horoscope for February 2017 for Moon sign Aries – Mesha Janma Rashi

Sun transits through auspicious 10th and then 11th during the month. Saturn is going through  inauspicious 9th house transit. Mars is going through manglik 12th house transit. Jupiter’s transit through 6th house is difficult. Rahu is going through a 5th house transit. Ketu is also going through a favourable 11th house transit. Venus will also go through favourable 12th house. Mercury is transiting through auspicious 10th and then 11th house. Overall a good month for Aries born. There are no unnecessary obstacles in form of vedhas, except Mars causing vedha to Mercury in 2nd half.

Home, Family and Domestic Environment: Notwithstanding the Manglik transit, the rest of the month looks good for relationships across the spectrum. You should avoid conflict with others and use the pent up energy for research and strategy for future rather than fighting with siblings and partners. Keep your rude comments in check. If you follow this advice, you can have a peaceful February. Avoiding conflict does not mean making false promises. You will be caught! Its a good time for romance.

Travel: Comfortable travel is not indicated through the month. The hotel room you may be assigned may not be comfortable or you may just not get good sleep in a new environment. Keep your expectations lower.

Health: Sleep disorders are indicated. You will be worried more than you will be sick during the month. Be careful with accidents where you can get hurt in lower leg. Throughout the period when Jupiter is retrograde, you need to be cautious about existing diseases becoming worse.

Finance, Business & Job: At the place of work, the situation will improve drastically compared to previous month. Success in business is also indicated. In both cases, working with government will be good. Successful completion of projects will bring honour and reputation. There is still a possibility that you may not get full credit for all your work, but then be happy and content with what you already have. Again, avoid unnecessary conflict and do not push your luck too much. When you are working with your superiors, talk to them about your promotion. If you are in business, then chalk up plans for expansion.

Expenditure will be very high – and you may outspend your earnings. Various transits indicate increase expenditure on yourself and on items of luxury.
