February Astro Babble ~ Your Personal Horoscope Included!
“Actions based solely on individual drive and demagogy are unmasked and rejected by the majority, giving way to the more universal values of empathy and social justice.” Year of the Dog (karmaweather.com)
Happy February, and Chinese New Year of the Earth Dog! The Year of the Dog (beginning Feb 15th) highlights security, universal values, truth and social justice. The loyal Dog is a generous and compassionate friend, encouraging empathy for others.
This Dog year is a good time to make lifestyle changes, and start new business ventures. Organization is key, allowing you to blossom more confidently in your professional life. The emergence of new innovate and creative voices, while taking a page from their wise elders, offers new perspective and understanding, as we come together in one voice, individual and collective.
The other big Astro news is the Solar Eclipse in Aquarius (also on Feb 15). Solar Eclipses are turbo-charged New Moons, opening new portals to change and evolution, especially in the sign of Big Picture Aquarius. This Solar Eclipse joins mercury, the communication planet, highlighting ideals, innovation, education and sharing ideas.
February’s Solar Eclipse, offers a full circle moment with January’s Lunar Eclipse, and last August’s Solar Eclipse, both in Leo. Leo and Aquarius form a cosmic polarity, each influencing the other, inspiring individual change in service of the greater good. This is a time to contemplate your journey and evolution over the last six months or so, to see what has changed, and how you have grown.
Your February Horoscope:
Aries: To describe your month in a few words (or a very long sentence): “Grounding your energies in real world practicalities, gives flight to long awaited dreams, while still staying true to yourself and your greater mission.” Expect some significant breakthroughs, as you bravely reach for higher potentials. A part of the process may be wrestling with some old demons. Send them on their way! It’s shadow baggage, with little to do with your reality today. #StructuringMyReality
Taurus: “No matter where you go, there you are”, is an apt description of your stars, this month. With plenty of planetary jooze (including the Solar Eclipse!) in your career house, look for opportunities to make your mark. At the same time, you’re still experiencing subtle cosmic shake-ups in your subconscious and soul corners. Next steps need to reflect your deeper stirrings, as your past meets your future in some powerful new awakenings. #NoSleepingAtTheWheel
Gemini: Feeling restless? Okay, nothing new, but this month, your stars add an extra boost to your desire to explore, learn something new and…get the heck out of Dodge for a while? This is not a moment to abandon ship. Instead, consider, ways to keep yourself interested in what you’ve got going. Commitment can be a bitch, but there’s something sublime as well. Travel, engage and explore, but don’t run-away from what’s important. Keep the big picture in mind. #TightClothes
Cancer: Current mood: Tentative. Your stars have been up and down and all around. Some lovely expansive stuff, some hard I-would-rather-forget-it stuff. Time to land in a new place of balance. If you’re keeping old secrets, it’s time to either reveal them or lovingly kiss them goodbye. Consider the Solar Eclipse on February 15th, a cosmic death and rebirth. Freedom comes in a clear conscious. Your focus now is on living a more balanced and holistic life. #LightAsAFeather
Leo: What were you doing last August, at the time the Solar Eclipse in your sign? There’s a full circle moment happening with this month’s Solar Eclipse (in opposite sign Aquarius). Time to check-in with yourself and look at your evolution. I have a feeling that you’ve come a long way baby, and are noticing subtle but profound differences. Most notable, feeling more comfortable in your own skin. Stay heart-focused, the evolved-you is quite powerful. #LightWorker
Virgo: Your relationships are highlighted this month, including intimates, friends and business associations. You may find yourself called to do some house cleaning. Unfortunately, it’s not all black and white! There’s plenty of gray areas. Look deep into your heart and give yourself permission to really and truly discern your truth. There’s no wrong decisions. Trust what feels right to you. You’re not going to want much excess baggage on your expansive travels ahead. #TravelingLight
Libra: The New Moon/Solar Eclipse in air-friendly Aquarius is like a cosmic infusion of Vitamin C, offering a boost to your self-esteem! Expect to be creative mode. You’re itching to find new ways to express yourself, and this may come in different forms. For example: writing and teaching, redecorating your home, or a fabulous art project. Whatever you create, do it with love. Your creative babies are expressions of your soul, and deserve to have life. #CreativeMama
Scorpio: You’re riding an expansive cosmic wave, on one hand amazing, opening new doors, on the other, somewhat overwhelming! You may be looking for a road map. Alas, you’re making it up as you go. This month ground in the reality of your daily life, home, friends and family. They are the touchstones that provide the stability you desire. Be willing to look outside your comfort zones, take some chances, and stretch your parameters. Because #TheUniverseHasMyBack
Sagittarius: Mars, the warrior planet, is firing up your sign through March. Take advantage of its powerful, forward moving energy. Mars says: Take no prisoners… but slow down there Sparky! With the dramatic Solar Eclipse in your House of Thoughts and Communication, it’s important to remember how very powerful your words are. Same is true with your thoughts and ideas. Be careful what you put out there, ‘cause they just may manifest. #Magician
Capricorn: You, Cap, conservative, frugal creature that you are, are totally on top of your finances. Ahhh…right? Whatever your financial picture, this is a time to let go of “woulds” and “shoulds”. To release the pressure to be “successful” in a traditional sense. The past is the past and you have learned much from your journey. Release any old shame about not being good enough. If you were to go back and do it all again, what would you change? Not much. #ProsperousOnMyTerms
Aquarius: Big month! The Solar Eclipse in your sign is a major cosmic event, breaking open new portals to those willing to reach beyond old limitations. This is especially true for you, Aquarius! Kinda like you won the world championship, and now you’re going to Disney Land. So, what are going to do with all this powerful ju-ju? First enjoy the ride, then make an action plan around what worlds you wish to conquer. Nothing is too big, if you can: #ImagineIt
Pisces: The expansive Solar Eclipse in your House of the Unconscious, may feel like a volcanic eruption, where your deepest sense of self--like hot lava--is ready to overflow! To take a page from the Volcanic Fire Goddess Pele, she who created the Hawaii Islands from her fire and creative wraith, this is a time to commune with your inner-fire. The most desirous parts of yourself that are ready to create a new reality, one free of past restrictions. Note to others: #FollowOrGetOutOfMyWay
