Aries – (March 20 – April 19)
Venus entering your sign on the 2nd lends a bit of a glow to your social life now, Aries. To some, she will bring love; to others, she will add artistry and ‘joie de vivre’ to our lives. Use this to your advantage; with a stellium of planets in Aquarius, your house of social networking, you are in a prime position to meet and greet the right faces. This is also an excellent time to look at your long term goals and make plans for your future. You may have to clean up some old ‘stuff’ on the 5th when Saturn and Uranus face off in your 12th/6th house axis. Respond to outside pressures on your own terms, even if you have to create an artificial delay; sometimes diversionary tactics help to make magic.
Taurus – (April 20 – May 20)
Mercury resumes direct motion on the 1st, and almost immediately, on February 2nd, you are called to take action on all of those ideas which you revisited last month. January was your month to renew and review, and now, in February, you have an opportunity to put your ideas into motion. This is your time, Taurus; what are you waiting for? Major planets in your solar 10th house of career and public success are adding a shining light to your success. The Full Moon lunar eclipse on the 9th is another call to action; you may initiate some changes in your home situation or even your personal presentation style over the next 6 months. Plan to roll out a new ‘YOU’ which looks as regal as the Leo moon which brings on this transformation.
Gemini – (May 21 – June 20)
Gemini, I know you are brilliant; have you considered that adding specialized classes to your bundle of knowledge makes you even more wise? Education begets power, which in turn ups the ante for you on payday. Jupiter, the guru planet in your 9th solar house of higher and learning for the rest of this year will present you with a multitude of opportunities. And, Saturn lingering in your solar 4th house of inner foundation can feel like a lead weight deep inside of you, or else you can use the planetary taskmaster to your advantage and show up (and sit through) those classes and workshops. Use these planets to create your own win-win scenario. The lunar eclipse of February 9th may ask you to release something you value in the upcoming months; but it is quickly replaced with a much better offer, and you will know what that can look like by the 25th.
Cancer – (June 21 – July 21)
The planetary activities will make for lively reading in your diary a year from now. On February 5th, you are influenced by two major planetary aspects; Saturn and Uranus in opposition, as well as Venus in a square or challenging aspect to Pluto. The latter, Venus and Pluto may bring up deep seated emotional discussions at the work place; if something has been bothering you for some time now, you finally reach a point where the situation must be rectified. And, Saturn and Uranus chime in- hey, hey, it’s about time. The words which have been held back for so long are now ready to flow. It’s a good thing, because ultimately your self- worth is tied up in this package, and stating your truth adds a sparkling ribbon to the value.
Leo – (July 22 – August 22)
If unattached, some of you will be blessed with meeting your future partner this month, Leo; what a gift! Others will meet business partners or make important connections. It’s all about getting out and networking. The karmic North Node joins benefactor Jupiter in your solar 7th house of relationships on Valentine’s Day, setting up an exceptional opportunity for finding the right person in a sea of faces. The tide is flowing with you now, so make the best of it. You may have to release a smaller fish in order to make room for the big one, though. The hardest part here will be you own resistance to change. Tensions which arise on the 5th and 6th are smoothed out nicely by the 27th.
Virgo – (August 23 – September 22)
The planetary undercurrents move towards a month of restlessness, Virgo. Looking for the perfect relationship? Perhaps it is best found in a romance novel that you read with a loved one while cuddling on the couch. You have arrived at your destination, and hopefully things are to your liking. Your key words for February are: mastery, health, routine, and stability. Jealousy and uncertainty are best left for another season. Be generous with your affections on Valentine’s Day, and remember that which you give will return multiplied. You partner needs you on the 24th, and you have new insight on the relationship by the 28th.
Libra – (September 23 – October 21)
Kabbalist Rav Berg teaches that Librans want to solve everything rationally, but that spiritual truth is beyond human logic. You must simply take action and even risk making mistakes in order to reveal the Light. With a multitude of planets in Aquarius, your 5th solar house of TAKING ACTION through creativity, it’s time to open the door to your inner child. Simple expressions of play can yield monumental results, especially this month. Your ruling planet Venus entering Aries on the 2nd adds to your potential for fun now. Somebody wonderful wants to be with you- are you ready?
Scorpio – (October 22 – November 21)
Do you feel grounded yet, Scorpio? It’s ok to relax a bit now. The electricity you feel in your gut is a part of your new reality; consistency in daily routines, especially exercise and healthy eating habits will help you to transform this high voltage energy into a positive future. Six months from now, you life will be very different than it is today. Think carefully about long range plans, and how you want your future to look and feel. Events of February 5th provide a glimpse of things to come. Schedule that important meeting for the 17th, and follow up early in the day on the 25th.
Sagittarius – (November 22– December 20)
That nagging situation has gone on long enough, Sag. With the Lunar Eclipse of February 9th in your solar 9th house of higher mind, and the Last Quarter moon in the sector ruling your unconscious mind; it’s time to address things. Besides, it’s just not like you to be wishy-washy. It’s time to carve out some free time in your schedule to work on a major long term goal. Writing; publishing; for some it will be travel – the planets are breathing life into your dreams now if you give them breath and space to expand. Don’t over react to a conflict at work on the 5th; the situation will resolve by the 13th, and if you maintain your distance, it will do so in your favor.
Capricorn – (December 21 – January 19)
A multitude of planets in your second solar house of earning power signals a season of financial abundance. Even the Lunar Eclipse of the 9th highlights another financial sector – your 8th house. Often the lunar eclipses ask us to release something first. Evaluate your old habits around spending and prosperity – or those of your family. Transformation is another key word for the 8th house, so you may want to clean out your closets, both literally and figuratively. Some of that old stuff keeps you tied to the past; let it go because your cornucopia stands to be filled with a fresh harvest. Maintain your cool on the 11th, and just observe on the 12th. Then, you can count your blessings on the 22nd.
Aquarius – (January 20 – February 17)Being an air sign, you need to just ride the winds from time to time, Aquarius. In a manner similar to a high tide, watery, ambiguous Neptune in your sign since 1998 has certainly changed your landscape. Neptune also acts like a slow leak on your physical vitality. Fortunately, your physical energy picks up after the 5th, when Mars adds some lift off fuel to your world. And, Mercury in Aquarius after the 14th sharpens up your verbal skills, too. Give careful thought to what you really want to create for your live in the upcoming months, because your potential to create a fulfilling reality has never been stronger. The future unfolds before your eyes on the 17th; ask and you shall receive.
Pisces – (February 18 – March 19)
A planetary ensemble embellishes your already rich dream world this month, Pisces. Mars traveling through your solar 12th house after the 4th adds fireworks and color to your inner landscape which is already colored by Jupiter, and after the 14th, Mercury enhances this kaleidoscope with words and messages. Pay attention to them all; this is an important month to journal your dreams because the Pandora’s Box of your unconscious is opened like never before. Act with gusto but do no harm on the 17th, and speak your truth on the 25th. Alexander the Great always consulted the oracle at Delphi before initiating any important project. We, also, will be looking to you for wisdom and insight; please be generous and kind.
