February Horoscopes

Aries
You are blessed with a renewed sense of energy and enthusiasm for life in February, as recent obstacles fall away leaving your path ahead clear and well illuminated. It seems that whom you know is more important than what you know this month, as the celestial gathering of planets in Aquarius highlights teamwork and co-operation for you. So, whilst you are usually one who prefers to go it alone, you will need to be aware of those around you. The good news is that your leadership skills will also be put to good use, so you are likely to end up with a pivotal role steering group projects along.
With your confidence running on a high, you will be feeling quite invincible and unstoppable, but you need to be sure that you don’t rush ahead – try listening to your intuition and trusting your own beliefs and thought processes. The clarity you have found with your path in life is strongly connected to your inner world, so you need to be aware of your intuition, and to listen to it a lot more than usual if you are to make progress this month.
On a more personal level, when it comes to your relationships, you need to cultivate an arena of openness and clarity this month. Don’t let niggling issues fester - deal with things promptly.

Taurus
Ambition is the name of the game for Taurus this year, and whilst January may have felt slow and lethargic, the pace steps up in February. There is an air of opportunity around you and with Jupiter playing such a key role in this area of your life, you will feel confident enough to broaden your horizons and seek pastures new. You are looking for challenges that will help confirm to yourself that you are indeed a gifted and talented individual. We all know this already, but you need to see this now…
The heavens are shining a spotlight on your career, and it is up to you to clarify your path ahead, listen to your intuition and to reach for the stars. This is not a time to underestimate your abilities or to avoid following your dreams just because your current situation feels comfortable. You owe it to yourself to at least explore the myriad of amazing opportunities that are out there waiting for you.
It seems that your environment is particularly important during February – you have been feeling a little restless and uncertain recently and this has largely been down to your home/domestic life. You will have the opportunity to create a much more harmonious and contented living environment as the month progresses, and the result will leave you feeling much more settled and happy.

Gemini
Thinking outside of the box is your way forwards in February. This is a year of change and growth for Gemini, but you have been struggling to see this over the past few weeks as life has felt so restricted and restrained. This is now a time to use that brilliant mind of yours to start seeing the wood for the trees. Your creative use of intelligence is pretty much unrivalled, but you get distracted so easily, that you often forget to make the most of this wonderful gift. The heavens are outlining a year of vibrancy and abundance for you, but you need to switch your brain into the right mode now. So, stop seeing problems, start seeing solutions…
Your spiritual outlook on life is also going through something of a transformation, as you are starting to realise just how powerful your mind is in creating your own vision of Utopia. There is a sense of growth and abundance when it comes to your own connection to the Divine, and you start to see that your thoughts actually do mould your reality. Deep down, this comes as no surprise, but it is something else that has got lost in distractions.
Travel is also highlighted for you this month, a need to escape from the norm, and to find a little haven where you can rest, be still and contemplate.

Cancer
February looks set to be a month of new beginnings for Cancer – alongside this though comes a month of endings (for you cannot have one without the other). This is not a time to be sad or frustrated though, but a time to embrace the new and to grab life with both hands. Free choice comes into the equation of course, so if you choose to focus on what you lose over what you gain, that is entirely up to you; but just remember that you are in the driving seat of your life at the moment, so please make the most of this. Your actions and choices over the coming weeks will shape your life for a long time to come…
There is a sense of isolation in February, a sense that you feel a little disconnected and alone. This seems to come from a mini crisis of faith, where you start to question your beliefs and spirituality. Everyone gets these at some point in life, but yours comes at a powerful time of change; so you are likely to feel this quite deeply. Just know this, that as February progresses, not only are you likely to see the light at the end of the tunnel, but you will also begin to see your own little Garden of Eden – joy, abundance and plenty in your life.

Leo
Life feels as though it has reached something of a crossroads for many Leo folk. This is partly because of some new opportunities that have presented themselves to you and those close to you, and this has left you feeling quite discontent with your lot in life. You have the power to make change though, but you just need to think before you act to ensure that you have considered all your options.
With the Full Moon (and lunar eclipse) in your sign on the 9th, your emotional life is in strong focus. You have been aware of some feelings that have been surfacing lately that have felt quite out of character for you. This is in part due to the feelings of discontent around you, but these feelings are also connected to past experiences in your life that you have not yet fully released.
The Full Moon is the time to go within to discover the cause of these emotions, and to release and let go of anything that may be holding you back. So, try meditating on the Full Moon, and ask for the power of the Moon to work with you in releasing anything that no longer serves you. In addition, use this special time to state your intent for your path ahead – let the heavens know your plans and dreams.

Virgo
February looks set to be a month of hard work – it is time to dust off your ‘to-do list’ and to get all those things done that have been hanging around for ages. Hard work may be a distressing notion to some people, but not Virgo; the level of satisfaction you will receive from achieving so much will far outweigh the reduction in ‘you time’.
Saturn is the dominating energy in your life at the moment – hence all the hard work, but there is more to this celestial being than this. Saturn is still in retrograde, and this has the effect of you wanting to take more responsibility for your life – to be accountable for your actions, words and thoughts, and to completely ‘own’ these. This sounds quite heavy, but it is in fact a key part of your path ahead, for the more you are in control of your life, the more clearly you will be able to steer ahead. It is ultimately up to you just how much you want to be in the driving seat – but this is your time to decide.
Throughout this transformative phase of your life, you would be wise to go with the flow of life more – if you try to force things to push ahead, you may end up feeling let down. In addition, the grass is not always greener on the other side you know…

Libra
Inspiration is the name of the game in February as you start to feel increasingly energised and motivated with life. Your path ahead looks clear and exciting, and you can see your horizon expanding before you. You are finally beginning to see just how multi-talented you are, and you no longer need to see your life as one long series of ‘either/or’s’ - you can have it all. It becomes clear this month just how you can incorporate all your talents into your work and life, and whilst some of these may appear a little left of centre – trust your instincts, and believe in yourself.
Abundance, luck and good fortune are within your grasp now; you will be in exactly the right place at exactly the right times to meet just the right people who have the perfect opportunities for you. This is in plural for a good reason – opportunities – more than one – lots in fact. This is not a time to think ‘restriction’, but instead it is the perfect time to think ‘freedom, expansion, independence and adventure’.
So, don’t be afraid to explore pastures new, to push your limits a little, and to allow your creativity and imagination to take you to some new (and very achievable) heights in your life. February is an amazingly prosperous and favourable month for Librans – this is your moment to create the life you have been dreaming of…

Scorpio
Change is in the air for Scorpio in February as the page of your life turns to a new chapter. The joy in this is that this next chapter has not yet been committed to paper; and you not only have the ‘celestial pen’ in your hand, but you are free to write your own story. So, be sure you think before you act, and have the courage to believe in yourself and your dreams. Opportunities like this do not come along very often.
This external change is a direct reflection of what is happening deep within you – you have been going through a phase of intense transformation emotionally, and you have learnt a great deal about yourself and your relationships. Some of these experiences have been hard to deal with, but you are now emerging from this with a sense of renewal, strength and self-confidence. In many ways you are now seeing the world through fresh eyes, and this new perspective will enable you to explore your true potential.
Any journey’s you make this month are likely to draw you into new social circles and arenas. You will find yourself surrounded by many like-minded people, and you will have the opportunity to meet at least one kindred spirit who will have an impact on your life for years to come.

Sagittarius
The winds of change are gathering momentum this month; and as you journey through February your life is likely to become quite hectic and chaotic. In many ways this is not different to normal, as you so like to have lots of different distractions to keep you busy. However, this month things are much more focused – you can now clearly see your way ahead, and you know exactly what needs to be done in order for you to reach your goals.
It is likely that you will need to expand your credentials, and so a period of study is possible. In addition, with your mind on high speed, you will find that you can throw off any obstacles that try to get in your way with considerable ease. Your communications ability is both rejuvenated and enlivened, and you will speak to many people this month who will both help you and inspire you. You are a born networker, so this month you will be in your element!
You will also meet some kindred spirits who will open you up to a new way of thinking – this could even lead to you making a few tweaks in your direction as you will see a better way to achieve your dreams. Just remember to keep the end goals clear though, otherwise you may end up straying off course and reaching a dead end.

Capricorn
There is a strong focus on your finances in February, and you will see some new ways to boost your earning power. It is also time to trust your instincts as well, so don’t take things at face value when it comes to your financial and material security. Play your cards right, and you will end the month feeling confident, excited and strong.
There is a chance that the job of your dreams is coming your way – only you will need to think creatively if you are going to get it – that is not to say you should lie or be creative with the truth, but rather you may need to find a different way into the interview than normal.
Your life has been full of its fair share of knocks and setbacks, and this has made you very cautious, particularly when it comes to meeting new people. You tend to put up a barrier making it hard for people to get to know you. Of course, your belief that you always know best could also be part of the problem – you may have faith in your opinions, but you need to allow for discussion and debate – people do not want to hear lectures on issues, they want an equal free-flowing conversation. So, try to relax, loosen up, and let those barriers down a little. Oh, and listen!

Aquarius
Change is in the air for Aquarius, and life is fast-paced in February, so you need to be prepared to take full advantage of all the opportunities that come knocking at your door. Ideas that have been drifting around your mind become more pressing as you feel that now is the time to reach up and grab those dreams. Life is for the taking, and it is up to you just how you make the most of this.
You are quite firmly in the driving seat of your life at the moment, and with Mars moving into your sign on the 4th, you can expect a huge rush of energy and vitality at just the right time to drive your plans forwards. A change of residence is possible, as is a change in career – what is clear is that you are being guided into making changes to your life (some huge, some subtle) in order to take a giant leap forwards – to get your life onto a level that you have been dreaming about for ages.
The celestial party in Aquarius this month gives you a massive boost in confidence, self-belief, luck, intuition, and support; and you will finally begin to see that your dreams are not only possible, but finally within your grasp. This is a time where dreams come true, so keep a clear mind and go for it!

Pisces
For the last few months (if not years), you have been tangled up in other people’s lives and worries. You are an empathic and compassionate person by nature, and do tend to get embroiled in other’s lives, but recently it has been more than this, you have almost felt overwhelmed by what is going on around you. This starts to change in February as you start to emerge from the entanglement stronger and more able to detach.
At the same time you need to realise, that whilst you have a strong need to help others, you are not sucked into their lives unwillingly. In fact, you are so used to being involved in other people’s lives, that you find life way too quiet when you are isolated. You need to accept responsibility for your choices and your involvement – there is a word in the English language that you need to take on board now, that word is simply ‘no’. Use it or own the consequences – it’s up to you.
The New Moon is in Pisces, which suggests a time for breaking free from old routines and traditions, and standing in your own power. Try meditating at the New Moon on the 25th, and connect to the lunar energy and ask for the Moon to give you strength and guidance as to how to move forward with your life.
