Astro Babble ~ February Edition Your Personal Horoscope Included
Lately, many of you have been asking: “What the heck is happening with the Stars? Is it just me? Or is it extra intense and fragmented?” No, it’s not just you—blame it on the square-off between Uranus (in Aries) and Pluto (in Capricorn). These two are heating up for they’re final tango in March. So if you’re feeling unsettled, this could be the reason. This alignment is like a cosmic earthquake, and the key now is staying grounding in the present moment.
It’s also the Chinese New Year on February 8th—the Year of the Monkey! The 2016 Red Monkey year carries the energy of innovation, intelligence, global change, creativity and breakthroughs. Which fits with the 2016 western astrological landscape as well. The Year of the Monkey is a good year to break free and take calculated risks. The Monkey is impatient, ingenious and doesn’t stand on convention. He is a rebellious trickster and encourages us to be strategic, and follow our heart’s desires!
February Astro News:
Aquarius New Moon, February 8th: The same day as the Chinese New Year, so monkey perfect! Aquarius, like the Monkey is innovative, forward-thinking, and loves to shake things up. This new moon is an excellent time to get moving on new projects, go outside your comfort zones, trust your instincts and take some risks. Not an excellent moment for relationship building, however. You’re going to want extra space, to nurture your inspirations.
Virgo Full Moon, February 22th: This full moon can be described in a word: Purge! The lunar energies are perfect for cleaning, clearing and letting go. You may feel extra stimulated about transforming your life, but slow down there, sparky…remember Rome wasn’t built in a day! Suggestion: happily purge away, but be discerning. New doesn’t necessarily mean better.
Your February Horoscope
Aries: The new moon in your house of inspiration sets the tone for the month. Expect new illumination around your Future/Big Picture, and watch for synchronistic happenings confirming you’re on the right track. Mars is doing a devilish dance in your house of transformation, so be open to new insights and be willing to let go of the past, and what doesn’t serve you. Now more than ever, this is a time to trust and #FollowTheSigns
Taurus: The new moon (new beginnings!) in your career specter encourages you to get clear about your professional identity. How do you want to present yourself to the world? It’s time for some “Cosmic Rebranding”. No sitting on the fence, time to declare--or better yet--reveal your truth. If this rattles some old (stale) cages, so bet it. Trust yourself, your instincts are true and you’re more powerful than you know. #Standing
Gemini: Feeling restless? Well, this is not unusual for you, Gemini, but this month, especially so. You finally have some air beneath your wings, and are looking to expand your realm of experience. What does this mean? I have no idea, because it’s unique to you, and the sky’s the limit--but will offer this advice: The more you take time to take care of yourself, the more opportunity will come. #FreedomBaby
Cancer: Who? Me? Creative? Yes indeedy, Cancer! With feisty Mars in your house self-expression, your creative muses are asking you to dance. Creativity doesn’t necessarily mean artistic, it’s more an expression of your individuality, your soul. Homework assignment: Create a vision board! Cut, tear, rip out pictures and phrases that stimulate your imagination, and I guarantee you will be happily surprised at the results. #VisionQuest
Leo: Exploring the realm of relationships is on tap for you this month. This includes romantic, business, friendship, partnerships, anywhere you’re looking at commitment and aligning your energy. Key is standing in your power around what you want, and not giving into/signing off on agreements that don’t resonate with your true essence. Also, be mind-full around wellness—body, mind and soul. #TheTotalPackage
Virgo: “Do what you love, love what you do”, is your motto this month. The new moon in your sign, combined with the full moon in your house of Health, Work and Service, is prompting you to look at your daily routine--what works and what doesn’t. You’re getting a cosmic green light to make changes that serve you. They don’t have to be big, or major…it’s the little things that will make all the difference now. #CosmicNickPicking
Libra: The new moon in your house of inspiration and collective destiny, encourages you to fully embrace your Big Picture. Time to ask your Future Self what she/he wants next. Take time to visualize, and commune with the bigger, greater parts of yourself, and let them show you what’s possible. In the process, consider your value to the world, because your future vision and value go hand-in-hand! #TimeToRaiseYourRates
Scorpio: Feeling feisty, Scorpio? With aggressive, forward-moving Mars in your sign, you’re feeling energized to conquer new territory. Mars can be a double-edged sword, however. The positive--you’re clearer about what you want, and ready to go. The other side of the sword is that you need to be mindful about being too aggressive about getting your way. Know when to step back and go with the flow. #CuttingThroughTheB.S.
Sagittarius: It’s like you’re giving birth, but the baby’s not…quite ready to come out! Time to practice cosmic Lamaze, Sag! Breathing helps, as does knowing when to step back and surrender to the Universal flow. There’s Divine Right Timing at work, and your mastery now is learning to trust it. Whatever you’re initiating now needs a bit more time to evolve, especially because it’s connected to your soul. #LaborPains
Capricorn: You just finished the Mercury Retrograde in your sign and are hopefully feeling lighter and freer to explore your options. The MR offered the opportunity to get clearer and regroup, now it’s time to consider this: How you can monetize your dreams and inspirations? Your vision is real, but you must believe. I know you like tangibles Cap, but for right now, it’s about investing in the unknown and staying true to you. #ISayGoForIt
Aquarius: The New Moon in your sign, on the same day of the Chinese New Year feels especially auspicious. I see it as a good sign--that you’re ready to follow your heart’s desire, take risks and go for it! Not to get too woo on you, but when writing this, the Archangel Michael kept coming through. It was like he is handing you a sword…Google him, and know that you have one fierce angel on your side! #WhereAngelsFearTo

You’re totally up for this balancing act. #OhStarryNight
