February 2015 Horoscopes

Aquarius

AQUARIUSHappy Birthday Aquarius!  The Sun empowers you in February and there’s an undeniable zing to your energy.  Even with your Aquarian glow, mind your manners during Mercury’s retrograde, our collective cross to bear through the 11th.  Miscommunication causes misunderstandings which have the potential for conflict.  Haven’t you seen Three’s Company?  February 18th is a particularly fortuitous day for you.  A new moon brings you the opportunity for fresh starts and planting the seedlings of future growth.  Your mission, should you choose to accept it: focus your romantic energy on one person and discover your capability for a deep and lasting partnership.

Pisces

PISCES

February requires a good deal of personal tidying up and the excuses must stop if you are truly going to evolve.  Pisces are a bit delusional, and that’s because you aren’t much for the nitty-gritty details.  Apply discipline to get dirty deep in minutiae in February.  Start with the stack of paperwork that serves as a wellspring of stress.  Implement and keep up with simple healthy routines.  Pisces tend towards the elaborate, but often find you lack the attention to detail to follow through on such demanding self-imposed requirements.  You are so romantic Pisces; it is one of your best qualities. Chocolate dip your Valentine in love this year.  Your mission, should you choose to accept it: organize your life to support your best health.

Aries

ARIES

February is the month of love and this year is rich with possibilities for romance and pregnancy.  Have you been craving a deeper level of commitment and additional responsibility?  Take the lead and communicate your expectations to your partner.  Everyone appreciates your gutsy personal style, but lately the Aries aesthetic has skewed a bit fug.  One risky statement is fine, but keep the rest of your look simple, well-made, and tailored.  Remember that Mercury’s in retrograde through the 11th, so that explains why your cell phone is on the fritz.  Your mission, should you choose to accept it: propose.

Taurus

TAURUS

The first half of February illuminates your career ambitions and trajectory, Taurus.  Strip away the superfluous to focus your full energy on where you really want to go.  Make plans through the 11th, and then when Mercury comes correct you can begin to implement action.  Take extra care at work where you are prone to making errors under the influence of Mercury’s retrograde.  Some of you will use the Leo full moon as a good excuse to get up and out of your current living situation.  Go for it; a change of scene would do you good.  In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, love, and goodwill, your mission should you choose to accept it: let go of that venomous grudge you’ve been clinging to like a like raft.

GeminiGEMINI

Mercury your ruler is in retrograde and that has you all misty-eyed for the past, Gemini.  Sentimental and nostalgic on the inside, blunt and offensive on the outside, temper your truth-telling tongue through the 11th.  Your version of the truth is a little too bitter for some to swallow.  Use your knack for technology to connect with others in February. Whatever plans you implement during the new moon on the 18th will see full bloom in July.  Think longer-term.  Also on the 18th, the light shifts towards your career and you get a surge of ambition during an already successful period for you professionally.  Your mission should you choose to accept it: exhibit as much compassion as you do intelligence.

CancerCANCER

February’s gotcha thinking about a special few, specifically those with whom you share your resources, Cancer.  Family-oriented and homespun, tap into your inner circle to firm up your sense of long-term security.  Cancer drifts towards the dramatic during Mercury’s retrograde, when you hear yourself picking an unnecessary argument, consider whether it’s a battle even worth winning.  Technological, travel, and money glitches are all on the menu through the 11th.  February 3rd is your best day for career recognition.  February 18th is the best day to evaluate your relationship for long-term viability.  Your mission should you choose to accept it: protect your assets with a financial plan.

LeoLEO

Mercury’s still in retrograde through February 11th, Leo, and for you that means random inconvenient delays often a result of the 2nd hand effects of other folks’ bad luck.  The third’s full moon stokes your fires of self-expression.  Take advantage of this blessing of energy to recognize what you’ve manifested over the last half year or what you would like to initiate now to bloom in July.  The 18th is Leo’s most sexy and auspicious day.  Your mission should you choose to accept it: use Valentine’s Day to go hard for that cutie you’ve had your eye on.

Virgo

VIRGO

In February, the Sun stokes your fires of organization.  Messy Virgos may balk at tidy stereotypes associated with your sign.  That’s really too narrow a reading on your kind.  What you like is control and you assert it by organizing, specifically in the areas of health and wellness.  Mercury spins retrograde through the 11th and as a governing planet; you may find your best laid plans run amok.  The 3rd presents a meaningful opportunity for healing.  Finally, you are able to see situations from a bird’s eye view providing much needed perspective.  Your mission should you choose to accept it: enough with the martyr shit.

LibraLIBRA

You’re like a warm hug this in February, Libra.  Get out and flaunt that famous Libran beauty.  You’ll be welcomed at gatherings for the fun, playful, and sexy energy you add.  With this surge of outgoing communicative energy, also comes the allure to manipulate situations.  With Mercury in retrograde through the 11th, there will be times this month you think you’re cute and you’re really just rude.  Much of that discernment comes from sobriety, so ease up on the libations, bitch.  Your mission should you choose to accept it: open your heart to love.

ScorpioSCORPIO

Make way for a softer Scorpio in February.  Tidy up your nest and settle in to a couple good weeks of domesticity.  When your home is ordered, your life is easier.   You and a friend may have a come to Gsus moment this month.  Should such a conversation arise, navigate it with compassion.  You already know you can “win” any argument, but often at the cost of relationships.  Just let her have her say.  February 3rd is your superstar career day.  Your mission should you choose to accept it: focus only on what is essential.

Sagittarius

SAG

February’s a brainy month for you, Sagittarius.  If you are thinking about sending out a round of resumes this is a great time to interview.  Sags come off especially well-spoken and confident this month.  On the 3rd, a continuing education seminar wouldn’t hurt, especially if you can turn it into a little trip.  Buzzy communication lights up your phone and you love the wellspring of attention, but a few wires may get crossed thanks to Mercury’s retrograde that runs through the 11th.  Your mission should you choose to accept it: read a book.

Capricorn

CAP

Capricorn amps productivity in all areas in February making this month super busy and likely to fly by.  Mercury’s retrograde annoys you with clerical errors and computer glitches through the 11th.  February 3rd is your best day for a major merger – personal or financial.  February 18th is your best day for money and setting up the groundwork of future stability.  Take some time the second half the February to enjoy creative pursuits.  Balance the work with with fun play.  Your mission should you choose to accept it: accept change like an old friend.

November 2014 Horoscopes

Scorpio

SCORPIO
Happy Birthday Scorpio!  Enough lurking in the shadows calculating your plan, assert yourself and put your strategy in play.  Enjoy the energetic emphasis on your sign this month and use the focus to make some serious headway on your personal fatty to-do list.  Don’t confuse selfishness with self-prioritizing.  Scorpios think they have great ideas for everybody else’s life, but that ain’t your biznass kid.  Turn that analytic eye into the looking glass and make a change.  Have you been rocking a signature look for eons like your Scorpio sister Anna Wintour?  Well it might just be time to rework that bob, girl.  To paraphrase Diane Von Furstenberg, become the woman you want to be even if you aren’t exactly sure what you want to do.  Craft your appearance and attitude to emit the perception you want to exude.  Scorpio stands to make great professional strides by materializing concrete plans, especially after the 22nd.  Scattered Scorpios pull it together by cutting the bullshit and prioritizing.

Sagittarius

SAG
November serves Sagittarius by providing a time for reconciliation, healing, and closure.  Theme on forgiveness; mend fences, and clear any lingering tension.  Use this time before your birthday to relax, rest, and restore.  Avoid pressured social situations.  Don’t feel any guilt about your non-committal attitude towards parties and engagements.  Evaluate your eating and overall physical wellness this month.  How do you feel?  What habits are weighing you down, literally and figuratively?  Depression-prone Sags experience a dip in mood and enthusiasm in November. Don’t confuse this totally normal seasonal valley with anything more sinister.  It will pass and soon you’ll be blowing out the candles on your birthday cake.

Capricorn

CAPRICORN
Capricorns experience a lift of enthusiasm this November.  Others welcome your upbeat spirit at gatherings.  Capricorns make a great first impression around the punch bowl.  Whatever your professional, social, or romantic overtures they will be well-received.  Much of your charm originates in your dry wit which always houses a generous dose of honesty.  Your truth-talking really dampens the panties.  Great sex is yours for the taking.  Mid-month, a wet blanket of a Debbie Downer tries to dim your shine.  Don’t let anyone drag you back into tarpits of pessimism.  Towards the end of November, tuck in for your annual pre-birthday reflection and respite.

Aquarius

AQUARIUS
Go get it Aquarius!  In November, your vision for long-term professional success matters most to you.  For sure, decide what you want and go after it hard in your Aquarian way, but also clean up the murkiness in your professional relationships.  Folks respond better when they know where they stand with you.  Expect a few and don’t get discouraged by “nos” before you hit that goldmine “yes.”  Work with women you love and respect to get your home in order.  It’s not that men can’t or shouldn’t clean, specifically this a time for your to surround yourself with feminine energy.  Freshen up your situation before the holidays, as you may end up hosting some impromptu gatherings.  All this womanly togetherness has you thinking… about a baby?  How would a child fit (if at all) into the life you’re building?

Pisces

PISCES
November will test you to stand up for yourself in a number of ways, Pisces.  Usually so easy-going, asserting yourself can feel downright foreign.  November challenges you to embrace your power without hesitation.  That feeling isn’t paranoia.  Someone is working against you.  Handle that bitch.  Implement simple structure to achieve professional success.  Strengthen your organization muscles.  You wouldn’t mind a trip, would you?  Now that we’re out of Mercury’s retrograde, it’s a less complicated time to travel.  Venture forth with confidence.  With your own ruler Neptune moving out of retrograde, the confusion lifts and you start to see everything more clearly.

Aries

ARIES
In November, you are obsessed with the love of your life, Aries.  Permanent decisions scare you less now.  You consider an engagement or professional merger.  All that work you’ve put in the last year finally blossoms into something tangible and credit-worthy.  Use the accomplishment as a barometer.  Are you proud of what you’ve achieved?  Do your values align with the investment of your energy?  If not, make a change.  You are prone to melancholia this month.  You can wallow in superficial ways for a day or two, and then get on with it.  Gloom doesn’t suit you.  Just in time for Thanksgiving and through most of mid-month, travel appeals to your adventurous streak.  Spend a few days with friends or family and a few days for yourself.

Taurus

TAURUS
Timely for the Thanksgiving holiday, you feel especially generous this November, Taurus.  You crave partnership, and partnership requires compromise – not exactly your strength.  Strike a balance between give and take.  Coupledom doesn’t require a forfeiture of your personal interests.  When you get in your favorite activities it relieves stress, and you are more fun to be around.  You are not alone in feeling depressed this month; many of your zodiac brethren suffer the same rut.  Experience the dimming, and then get right back to your typically optimistic nature.  Definitely don’t throw your relationship away over a fleeting dark mood.  Reject your tendency towards self-flagellation and self-criticism in favor of compassion.

Gemini

GEMINI
Get your life in order Gemini!  Organization is your theme this November.  You already have a keen eye for detail, but you get so mired down in the minutia you have trouble moving forward and clearing space.  Changing your ways requires self-discipline, but curbing your self-indulgent habits makes you a better human, so it’s worth a try.  Have you been wrapped in the wish of a person or idea that lives only in your imagination?  The first week of November allows you to put the unrealistic notion to rest and let go.  Gemini prefers solitude over thick crowds in November, but when you are alone you can easily slip into sadness.  Use this time constructively for finishing rather than initiating – you won’t have the ooomf to finish what you start this month.

Cancer

CANCER
Your old pals bold and sexy narrate your story in November, Cancer.  Accept every invitation, and enjoy every party.  Laugh loudly and without restraint.  You’ll meet new acquaintances with your friendly and engaging manner.  Tipple a little, but avoid getting drunk.  Not only could it lead to embarrassing (but funny) interludes, the hangovers could lure you into an late autumn depression.  The last few months have served up dramatic change.  Finally, you begin to hit a steady rhythm and can see your path clearly.  A cardinal sign, you’re already a great initiator.  November makes a great time for fresh starts and new projects.

Leo

BLAKE LIVELY
Leo temporarily morphs into Blake Lively this November and cares only for homespun sentiments and nostalgia.  You have the sudden urge to invite folks over for tea and feed them your signature snack.  Welcome this warm and homey side and enjoy relaxed entertaining.  On or near the 6th, a make-or-break moment happens in your career.  You’ll break through or you break out; either way you’ll be a happier Leo.  Zingy for the holidays, everyone welcomes your enthusiastic attitude at family gatherings.  If you are single, there are opportunities for love.  Leos interested in a baby, November is a favorable month for fertility.

Virgo

VIRGO
Easily bored, Virgo requires intellectual stimulation in November.  Surround yourself with big thinkers and life-long learners.  Your best moments this month are conversations of substance.  Generally speaking, Virgo prefers a full day, so pack as much in as you can, energy withstanding.  A wave of pessimism washes through the zodiac this month and you too could easily get swept away in a sad sea change.  More capable than most at reversing the frowns, lend a listening ear and ease the suffering of those around you.  When it comes to relationships, speak your truth kindly, but hold off on committing.

Libra

LIBRA
Financial concerns weigh heavily in November for Libra.  You vacillate between craving luxury and luxuriating in savings.  Feelings of depression, shame, and fear spring up around the topic of money.  You are the sign of balance, so spend a little, save a little.  Follow the advice of wise investors that you trust.  November heightens senses and experiences.  Food tastes better.  Sex goes deeper.  It’s not your usual approach to indulge, but when the going is good, why not?  Share your ideas and speak freely.  Direct and unequivocal communication plays an important part in the latter part of the month.  Remember that indecision is unattractive.
