February is when the Sun transits through the Air element of Aquarius and the Water element of Pisces. We’ve entered into month with upheavals and unrest around the world. Uranus (innovation, rebellion, surprise, separation & freedom) has moved into Aries (warrior, leader, pioneer) and may have helped to usher in this new uncomfortable and sometimes problematic energy. As we know, change is not always the easiest road to travel but it is something that is always a constant in life. Uranus is all about getting us out of our comfort zone and on the path of the new and improved or unconventional. Unfortunately, Egypt, Tunisia, and Israel are feeling the effects of Uranus transiting Aries, which means we are ALL feeling the effects. I’m not a mundane astrologer, meaning an astrologer who studies world events, so I can’t go into all the specific details of each country’s astrology chart but suffice it to say big changes and revolutions are under way.
Let’s just take one day at a time, enjoy every moment with ease and grace and send love and peace to all in the world that are fighting, struggling, or in pain. Amen, Namaste, hallelujah!
Check out the following important dates to put on your calendar:
February 2nd – New Moon in Aquarius (rebel, intellectual, unique) – A New Moon represents new beginnings, planting seeds, and setting intentions for the coming month. This is also a time when you may need to let something go to make room for the new and improved coming into your life. For Aquarius, this is your one new moon of the year so you may want to set time aside to make a plan for the coming year. What do you want to see in 2011? Write it down and then take action during the coming months to make it happen. Signs most affected by this new moon will be Aquarius, Leo, Taurus, Scorpio.
February 3rd – Venus (love, money & beauty) enters Capricorn (driven, focused, responsible)
February 4th – Mercury (communication, thought, transportation & travel) enters Aquarius (rebel, intellectual, unique)
February 18th – Full Moon at the last degree of Leo. A Full Moon represents energy for releasing, letting go, endings and completions and at the last degree of a sign it really emphasizes that fact. A Full Moon can also mean a culmination of hard work which ends in celebration and maybe even moving into a totally unexpected direction. Signs most affected by this Full Moon will be Leo, Aquarius, Taurus, Scorpio.
February 21st – Mercury (communication, thought, transportation & travel) enters (intuitive, creative, artistic).
February 22nd – Mars (passion, drive, anger) enters Pisces (intuitive, creative, artistic).
Provided below are the horoscopes for each sign, if you know your Rising/Ascendant sign, read that sign, as well as your Sun sign. To be clear, the Sun Sign forecast below is a generality. If you want specific information based on your birth chart, I am available for readings to help you have the best possible year ahead.
Aquarius January 20 – February 18:
Happy Birthday Aquarius! With so much planetary activity in Aquarius, you are the star this month. February is a great month to set you goals and intentions for the coming year because you have the baking for the Universe to make it a reality. Your one New Moon of the year in Aquarius is on February 2nd. Make sure you set time aside that day to create, compose, and construct your intentions for the coming year!
Pisces February 19 – March 20:
With so much activity in the 12th house (secrets, dreams, intuition, escapism), February will be a time when you may have a need for alone time and solitude to prepare yourself for the Sun moving back into Pisces and your solar return on February 18th. This is also a year that Mars (passion, sexuality, energy, action) will transit Pisces beginning Feb 22nd. The last time you had a boost from Mars was March 2009. This will be a good time to get projects underway and you will also have more energy and follow through to get them to the finish line.
Aries March 21 – April 19:
With Jupiter (good luck, abundance, expansion, truth) in your sign for only a quick six months you will need to capitalize on this good fortune ASAP! Aries has a tendency to procrastinate and I tell you this is not the time for that. February is a time to take the bull by the horns and start making things happen. You have Jupiter on your side to pump up the optimism and adventurous spirit within you to create miracles.
Taurus April 20 – May 20:
Career growth should be your key intention this month. With the New Moon in Aquarius on Jan 2nd taking place at the top of your chart, this is a time to make your intentions known to the Universe. Where do you see yourself in the next six months? When you have the answer to that question you now know your destination. With that destination in mind create a monthly plan, take action, and make your career dreams come true.
Gemini May 21 – June 21:
The planetary energy in mostly air signs at the beginning of the month will have you feeling exceptionally comfortable and optimistic. Take this time and go on a weekend get a way or take a class or seminar. Feed your inquisitive mind and enjoy. When the Sun moves into Pisces on Feb 18th the ease in which you were operating with will start to tighten up a bit but you will have enjoyed your time and it’s back to the old grind.
Cancer June 22 – July 22:
With so much planetary energy in your houses of self-worth and value this may be a month to take stock of what’s really important to you and the people closest to you. Take stock to realign yourself back to the core of who you are. Also, take notice and see how far you had moved away from that core so you don’t continue that pattern.
Leo July 23 – August 22:
With so much planetary activity in your house of marriage and partnerships this will be a time for you to put some energy and effort into re-establishing a healthy connection with those you may have been avoiding or taking for granted. This also includes business partners. Ask yourself what happened to those relationships that allowed them to be in such disrepair and ask how you can improve these relationships to bring them back to a place of happiness. Then set out to heal what is broken or release what is no longer worth the struggle.
Virgo August 23 – September 22:
Virgo if you are looking for the perfect time to start a new fitness and wellness regime your time is here. The New Moon (beginnings & planting seeds of intention) in Aquarius on Feb 2nd is taking place in your 6th house of health and daily routine, a perfect time to begin a new habit or practice. Also with so much planetary in your 6th house means that you could be very busy with work obligations. Make sure you breathe and try not to take on more than you can handle with your Virgo pleasing ways J
Libra September 23 – October 23:
For all you single Libra’s out there this is your month to put on your finest finery and get out there and mingle. Your 5th house of romance is lit up like the fourth of July until mid February. If you’re in a relationship this is a great time to rekindle the sparks with the one you love. It’s also a great time to open doors of opportunity with your creativity and talents.
Scorpio October 24 – November 21:
Home and family is where your heart is going to be this month. This is a great nesting time to reconnect with your loved ones and take care of domestic chores. For whatever reason, you have been procrastinating about getting things fixed in the house. Now is the time to bite the bullet and call that repair man or your honey-do and get the job done. This month may also bring in a new work project that could expand your business.
Sagittarius November 22 – December 21:
Your ruling planet, Jupiter (good luck, abundance, expansion, truth), has moved into your house of romance, children, self-expression, and adventure in the sign of Aries until June 2011. If you are single, this is a time that an amazing love can come your way. It’s also a good time to get your creative juices flowing because with so much planetary activity in your 3rd house of negotiations and contracts a deal can be made and the next millionaire is born.
Capricorn December 22 – January 19:
With so much planetary activity in your 2nd house of how you earn your money, I can bet finances are your most prominent thought. This month you have a great opportunity to get very clear about what needs to stay and what needs to go. Why are you working so hard? Do you really need that designer suit, that mini mansion, that luxury car? Do you really need to eat at the most trendy restaurants or buy that cup of coffee from Starbucks? Take a look at what you are financially supporting to see that maybe you are working too hard for things that really hold no value in your life anymore.
