Your February Horoscope
By Suzanne Gerber
ARIES (March 21–April 19): Practice your juggling skills! This month, career demands or a project of your own compete for time with family and friends. Luckily, you’ll have energy to burn. On the 3rd, Venus enters your professional arena for the rest of the month—at least work will be social and creative! Looking to recruit people to a cause or mission? Make your appeal near the new moon in Aquarius on the 4th.
TAURUS (April 20–May 20): Get ready for an infusion of energy! On the 14th, action planet Mars zooms into your sign for six weeks. Move that project from the back burner to the front and don’t turn down the heat till it’s done. Looking for work inspiration? The Aquarius new moon on the 4th could trigger a new development in the coming weeks. Get out there and network like the pro you are.
GEMINI (May 21–June 20): It’s a super-social month, with all the planets in your extroverted hemisphere. The first two weeks are great for exploring new venues, throwing parties or being a frequent guest. On the 14th, you might need to come in for a landing and recharge your batteries. A full Virgo supermoon on the 19th encourages time with close friends and family. Don’t forget to give your S.O. plenty of attention!
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Going somewhere? Travel, adventure and anything that expands your horizons is favored this month as the Sun and curious Mercury buzzsaw through that part of your chart. But block out alone-time with your favorite partner in crime during the Aquarius new moon on the 4th and the following two weeks. That’s prime canoodling time! Try to wrap up a professional project by the 14th, when your motivation dips.
LEO (July 23–August 22): Make a personal issue top priority so you can wrap it up for once and for all. Your romantic life gets a shot in the arm during the Aquarius new moon on the 4th and the two weeks that follow. Single? Try some new approaches—and keep an open mind! Professional matters will dominate your calendar after the 14th, when motivated Mars returns to your house of work and prestige after a two-year hiatus.
VIRGO (August 23-September 22): The year’s only Aquarius new moon on the 4th puts health and fitness front and center for at least two weeks. If you’re still paying the piper for holiday indulgences, hop back on the wellness wagon now. You’ll be happy you did once the Sun joins outgoing Mercury in your relationship sector on the 18th. Planning a getaway? Get serious when Mars revs into your travel zone on the 14th.
LIBRA (September 23–October 22): Fairy tales can come true… especially during the Aquarius new moon (4th) and full moon (19th). For once you’ll be leading with your heart not your head, so enjoy the quixotic energy! But once the Sun joins analytical Mercury in your house of work, service and self-care, plant those Havaianas back on terra firma and take care of business—including your own wellbeing!
SCORPIO (October 23–November 21): Do you really want to hibernate in sunny Florida?! It may be hard to coax you out this month, with the planets packed into your privacy hemisphere. But you don’t have to be a hermit! If you’ve wanted to show off a renovation or new décor, or need an excuse to cook up a storm, throw a party—or several! Single? Ask friends to bring other singles and turn up the Scorpio charm.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22–December 21): When lucky Venus makes her annual visit to your money zone on the 3rd, you could get a surprise windfall or someone may finally repay a debt. Also possible: You might find the pièce de résistance you’ve been searching for. If you’ve got the funds, go ahead and splurge! (If not but you still really “need” it, finance it.) Starting on the 14th, focus on healing a physical or emotional ache.
CAPRICORN (December 22–January 19): Your magnetism goes off the charts on the 3rd, when aesthetic Venus makes her annual visit to your sign. Been mulling a makeover—for your home or personal style? Start spending time on Pinterest or other home and fashion sites for inspiration. No need to rush, but be ready to “get your glam on” when excitable Mars blasts into your passion sector on the 14th for the first time in two years!
AQUARIUS (January–February 18): Ready for your close-up? The year’s only Aquarius new moon on the 4th inspires you to get serious about something you’ve been procrastinating on. Give yourself two more weeks to waffle—then pull the trigger! After the 18th, you can heal a riff with a sibling or friend—if you’re willing to let bygones be bygones. Feeling social? Start planning a fete for sometime after the 14th.
PISCES (February 18–March 20): Do something creative at work or in your love life the first two days of February, but then kick back and see how things play out. It’s a social month, though you may want to hide in your Fish tank during the introspective new moon on the 4th. If you’ve been nursing an emotional wound, take till the 19th, when a full supermoon in your relationship corner forces you to “deal.”
