It means that all possibilities are on the table and you can rightly put yourself in the forefront of new plans for the future.
Old habits, behaviors and beliefs can be questioned as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress. This is the ideal time to make a fresh start by writing a to-do list on a blank sheet of paper.

Solar Eclipse Neptune
Neptune shows how we rise above physical limitations. Spiritual development involves feeling more at one with people around you and with life in general. There is something scary about stepping into the unknown but the positive side of Neptune will be more noticeable following this solar eclipse.
A solar eclipse in general is a positive event giving an energy boost for a fresh start. The fixed star between the eclipse and Neptune is a very positive one, with wishes and dreams both being ruled by Neptune. The positive side of Neptune is also more prominent now that the fearful influence of Saturn square Neptune has passed.
Sun conjunct Neptune increases your sensitivity, intuition and empathy. Setting some boundaries will allow you to enjoy a sense of togetherness with loved ones. You may benefit from joining or learning more about environmental, charity, social or community work and groups. Spiritual or occult subjects like astrology may be better understood through higher awareness. This is a good time to go to the movies or escape from reality through a fantasy novel.
Moon conjunct Neptune increases your emotionally sensitivity. With conscious self-awareness provided by the Sun, you can filter out any background noise and use your sensitivity for good. While some psychic impressions may be off the mark, your compassion and empathy are genuine. You can be of great assistance to the victimized and outcast. The emotional comfort you offer has a healing quality.
The influence of the Sun and Moon with Neptune gives great potential for psychic awareness. The influence of the fixed star makes it even more likely that you will experience some kind of psychic activity following the February 28 solar eclipse.
Solar Eclipse Minor Aspects
The conjunction of Sun, Moon, Neptune and fixed star is definitely a harmonious and beneficial one. However, your fortune and psychic talents are at risk of turning against you because of the big opposition in the sky, shown by the solid red line in the solar eclipse February 2017 astrology chart above.
Jupiter opposite Uranus greatly increases your need for personal freedom and excitement. You will feel a strong urge to react, or rebel against anything that is stopping you from having fun and doing what you want. There is likely to be particular sudden event that releases your built up tension and leads to a major change in circumstances.
Not only is this opposition happening at the same time as the solar eclipse, it is directly linked in space by the 8th harmonic aspects of the 45° semisquare and the 135° sesquisquare. These minor aspects are like an itch that needs scratching, or a weaker version of the square aspect.
Sun Sesquisquare Jupiter (Sun square Jupiter) is like a double-edged sword. It can make you feel extremely confident, proud, lucky and optimistic. The manner in which you express your exuberance is critical in determining the final result, which can range from good fortune and success, to loss and embarrassment. The best way to handle it is with respect, moderation and discipline.
Sun semisquare Uranus (Sun square Uranus) requires open-mindedness and flexibility as you enter a stage of uncertainty. You may start to feel uneasy and anxious as you sense impending change. A buildup of nervous tension can result in unpredictable behavior on your part which can lead to abruptness, rapid changes in direction and even accidents.
Adding Mars conjunct Uranus to the equation makes these minor aspects even more like squares. This increases the danger of over reaction, rebellion and greed spoiling the original benefits from Neptune eclipse on the happy fixed star.
Sun semisquare Mars (Sun square Mars) can lead to tests of character from your competitors or enemies. The boss or men in general may be looking to assert their power, leading to ego conflicts. You may already be irritable and impatience, likely to react to any provocation or threats with aggression. Do not go on the offensive because your strength and courage are at a low point.
