February kicks off with all planets in direct motion. Some of us are currently full-steam ahead on plans for the year, having returned to initiatives that we abandoned last fall. Others will have stumbled into brand new collaborations, learning opportunities, job offers or relationships! The Aquarius sun starts the month at the bendings (squaring the lunar nodes), and by mid-month, Mercury follows suit. We have some important choices to make here. Do we elect to repeat comfortable patterns, or take the unfamiliar path? Keep your vision in your frontal lobe. It doesn’t have to be concrete or fully-formed. In fact, it *shouldn’t* be. Although discipline is required, leaving room for experimentation is key.
3/4 - Sun square Uranus: Unpredictable events encourage us to be flexible. Revising your game plan might be anxiety-inducing, but when the dust settles you’ll see why things couldn’t have continued as they were
4/5 – Venus square Mars: Tensions in relationships force us to address the elephant in the room. Ambiguous arrangements or deceitful behavior come up for review. Don’t lose your cool! Be direct about your feelings
11/12 – Mercury enters Aquarius: Innovation and experimental methods take primacy. Conversations stray into unorthodox or unusual subject matter
16/17 – Sun conjunct Saturn: Limitations force us to work with what we have. Expect frustrating interactions. Restriction is a teacher. We discover that establishing boundaries is critical to our personal success
18/19 – Sun enters Pisces: Our choices are colored by compassion and altruism. An auspicious time for creative or spiritual pursuits. We may become more contemplative and introspective as we approach the beginning of the astrological new year
20/21 – Venus enters Aries: We are bold and spontaneous in matters of the heart, single-mindedly pursuing the object of our affection! A better transit for dating and flirtation than establishing long-lasting commitments
