From your career path and amorous adventures to simply life in general, lets take a look at what the stars have in store for you this February! 


Capricorn

capricorn_image.jpgA time when you will truly need to “walk the talk”, stand by your beliefs and convictions. You will have a lot
on your plate and most of it will pertain to money, both for immediate needs and future gains. Financial matters become important or at least the main focus, but good moves have to be thought out. Just go ahead sensibly, keeping your own counsel as far as possible.

The ability to relate well with others might enhance your own personal finances during this period. This is a stable position for love matters and close relationships. You value those who make you feel comfortable, and familiarity is more important to you than someone new.

People may appear cool with their affections and emotionally far-away. You tend to lack social confidence at this time and adopt a shy, formal, or reserved social manner. Try not to read too much into situations, particularly social and romantic circumstances. 

Aquarius

aquarius_image.jpgIt might be a good time to make a thorough scrutiny of the real you, an honest assessment of your face, figure, health and assets and seek to implement a make-over where necessary. The truly intimate and personal you, needs to be examined minutely and where there is room for improvement, positive action be taken. You’ll need to establish good working relationships with colleagues, subordinates and bosses as well. It’s NOT a time to challenge the system! Stress and neglect both need to be guarded against too. A time for introspective self-assessment with a degree of honesty and objectivity.

That way lies contentment, success, happiness – any or all of them, and it will come from your own changed attitude. You could find it hard to deny yourself anything this month. There is a certain determination building up within you to alter not just your life or circumstances, but practically cast yourself in a new image.

This images needs to connect to the way you want to see yourself, in terms of appearance, health, physique, attitudes and mindset – all adding up to the quality of life plus lifestyle. Others find you agreeable and cooperative. People could literally approach you and appreciate you for who you are. You now know what works best for you and you have great wisdom inside you.

Pisces

pisces_image.jpgYou will have a sense of awareness of your own limitations this month, leading up to your birthday phase, be they physical, emotional or even financial, as well as a sense of being confined and restricted. There could be some rivalry, hard feelings generated that could trigger off either of these reactions. NOT a time to go overboard, in terms of self-pity, to see troubles where none exist, or attempt to solve the world’s problems. It might be a good idea to maintain a low profile and be less vocal. A time to make special efforts to get along with others – both professionally and personally. Changes initiated now may prove beneficial in the long run, both materially and otherwise.

An emotionally moving phase sets in. You may have a hard time defining your actions and your objectives, perhaps for the short term losing view of actuality and rationale. Some of you might find themselves being misled by others or by situations; that’s because of your own desire for a more glamorous life or a tendency to take shortcuts. This is a time of bendable morals, imagination, and inspiration.

Your affection is expressed behind closed doors. Attraction to secrets and whispers characterize this month, although for some, it can also be a time of endings, relationship concerns, and vagueness. You are likely to throw caution to the wind, and where boundaries between fantasy and reality can be blurred, so tread carefully. Avoid secret dealings and behind the door activities, especially the ones that are not clearly legitimate and justifiable. It can be better to be motionless and still, so you can feel the wind changing, than to row in the wrong direction.

There is certain electricity and vibes in the very air at this stage. It is even more apparent after the subdued, low-key activities of the recent past. Therefore, there could also be excitement of a different kind in the starting of a new project. It will certainly lead to travel and lots of contacts – some new, some old. Even some pending matters, long delayed projects that were practically in cold storage, will start up afresh.

Aries

aries_image.jpgAll the trends, which started last month will now gain momentum, focus and direction. You reach out to people in a rare show of warm friendship. This is a rather happy, goal-oriented month. A lively agenda is promised, you’re attracting quite a bit of interest, and your energy for making contact with others is high. This is a time to follow your dreams and ideals, and to plant a seed in the form of a wish for the future.

You may meet someone through such group activities; consequently, your interests will be shared. The bottom line is that sharing interests with someone is what makes you happy this month. This way you can turn good relationships into everlasting relationships. You are more peace-loving than normal, somewhat detached on a personal level and more connected to the outer-world. You will be more friendly, more magnanimous but also more extravagant.

Taurus

Torus_image.jpgRecognition, rewards, greater power and prestige, even your assets, property, belongings are enhanced greatly. The time is being truly generous, and you deserve it. Your vision is practical right now, and you want to see tangible results for your efforts. More contact with authority figures is likely during this period. Recognition is likely to come your way whether you ask for it or not, and the responsibility that comes right along with it! Do what you feel is right, keeping in mind that you are at your most visible during this month in the year.

Group activities and joint efforts are the best way to accomplish your goals right now. In fact, you have all sorts of ideas about what you want to do. You would want to organize projects and put things in shape. Your humanitarian inclination may be stirred. The part you play for other people in your life comes to the forefront now. You may experience that your tasks list gets swarming with things to do (usually for others). You may take actions to achieve your more personal long-term goals as well.

Gemini

gemini_image.jpgLong-distance and foreign connections, exchange and trade will be favoured. You’ll travel a fair amount and may strike up a chance acquaintance who shares your views, ideals and ideas. Also, you deal with a kind of weariness, even disillusionment, that sets in. A month of exaltation, true spirituality, intellectual and moral growth, a truly cosmic gift comes to you.

A taste for the out of the ordinary is favoured this month. Regular affairs simply don’t seem to satisfy. You will accept pleasure from anything and everything that expands your horizons, both physically and emotionally. Distant connections and places may for the most part appeal now. You have a tendency to be not very outgoing when it comes to love, time to let that someone in. 

Whether it’s professional or personal, you are likely to have an increased desire for others to notice you. Events taking place now will have a great bearing on your future and will be long reaching in their effects. It is a time when great progress can be made and personal recognition achieved. You are tending to be really clear-cut, straight and to the point in all of your interactions. Your mind is very active now, so this is a good time to streamline your efforts into intellectual or mental work like planning and programming.

Cancer

cancer_image.jpgOnce again, you’ll have to focus your attention on money matters (legacies, trusts, loans or fund-raising) even though there may still be some health problems nagging at you. You are more willing than usual to explore life’s secrets. This is an especially introspective month during which you have the chance to truly uncover your personal strengths and talents.

You are more tending to even differences in a partnership/relationship regarding the sharing of authority, intimacy matters, finances, and other emotionally-charged topics. Close relationships are intensified. Either you or your partner shall demand a deeper unification.

This month, you are more than ever passionate and daring. Some agitation and desire for exciting activity is experienced. Essentially, you are looking to expand your activities and opportunities for higher studies, travel or simply new subjects may be presented. You become aggressively involved in expanding your basic beliefs and your philosophies about life. You may find someone that you are willing to follow; this person may be a spiritual guru or a business mentor. Creative projects can flourish with enlarged focus and redoubled efforts that somehow don’t tire you out. 

Leo

leo_image.jpgNow the focus shifts on people and relationships, ranging from personal to platonic to just professional. You will realise that to help you achieve success your people skills need to be honed. You will need to be sharp-witted and alert in order to identify potential (or even actual) threats to your welfare/progress. It may not happen but it is good to be prepared. In spite of all this, this month brings you caring and sharing, that is, fine companionship, close ties with loved ones and an overall feeling of both togetherness and contentment. 

The emphasis is on “us” rather than “me”. This may be an especially busy time for people who consult or work with clients one-on-one. One-to-one linking appeals to you more than group activities or more casual associations. If single, you are more eager than usual to enter into a devoted relationship. In general, you are flexible when it comes to your affections – very willing to negotiate and make harmony. Try to be patient and adjusting in critical times, as this will help you reach new heights in coming months.

 Virgo

virgo_image.jpgYou may be making changes in your job/profession, in your relationships with colleagues and co-workers, health and diet. There may be some mental strain, or perhaps financial difficulties, particularly relating to held-up payments that are still pending, salaries, health and employee benefits or perhaps a bad debt and/or a check. Willingness to help and serve will pay dividends, both materially and in terms of a “feel-good” factor. Don’t expect gratitude and appreciation, just go ahead and do whatever needs to be done. 

This phase presents an opportunity to get rid of what doesn’t work in your life, while also discovering what does. You could seek distinction and strive towards perfection in your work. You are tending to be really clear-cut, straight and to the point in all of your interactions. You now do exactly what you think, and in fact are inclined to be aggressive, pushy, or perhaps sarcastic. 

Libra

libra_image.jpgThis is a very playful period of the year, when you are inspired creatively and emotionally. After a period of self-protectiveness, you are now more spontaneous and more willing to take risks. A rich, fruitful and happy phase comes to you and you’re enjoying it. The spice of life is there for you in the variety of interests, activities, and feelings that you are bound to experience this month.  Love is in the air, but only if you make the first move, take that leap you wont want to look back. At this time, you intuitively know how to position yourself in the best light in order to make a good impression on others. 

You tend to work hard and your day-to-day responsibilities will demand more attention. Perhaps you have a larger workload than usual. You become aggressive on your job or in regard to your service responsibilities. It might be hard for you to work with others in a pleasant manner, and disputes with co-workers are possible. If you are feeling particularly annoyed, irritated or impatient, it would be wise to find little projects and things to do so that you can guide excess vigour gainfully.

Scorpio

scorpio_image.jpgHouse or office may require renovation, refurbishing or expansion. Perhaps even a shift for either the office home factory/workplace. You want working conditions that satisfy you in every way, physically, technically and in the prevailing atmosphere and will take pains to achieve just that. You may also decide to invest in labour-saving devices/gadgets to streamline your efficiency both at home and in the office. At the same time, there is a desire to retrace your roots and origins, to go back in time.

This is a time to do what you can to build trust in your family life and a strong foundation within yourself, so that regardless of what you meet in the outside world over the next months, you have a secure place to return to.

There is a marvellous closeness built up with parents, older people, in-laws, who might not always approve of your eccentric and strongly different opinions. This month, you are especially fond of the life of the home and family. You are more receptive and gentle on a romantic level, and tend to be sentimental or nostalgic now. Loyalty and sensitivity in your relationships are more important to you than typically. You might focus on ways to earn money in or from your home. This is a calming influence, a time when simple pleasures most appeal.

Sagittarius

sagittarius_image.jpgYou still need to learn to relate better with others, but now it’s more on the intimate and personal level, the exchange of ideas, innermost thoughts, personal beliefs rather than the emotions. Family ties, linkages of loving and caring now become sharing. Vital correspondence and contacts must not be neglected, or the necessary inputs, data and information for work-related projects, plans or activities. No carelessness of any kind to be made if you want to achieve your goals. You are more curious and alert than usual, and you could be quite busy with errands, paperwork, phone calls, and light socializing. 

Much energy is expended in understanding and adapting to your immediate environment. Siblings, neighbours, close relatives, friends, and co-workers may play a more important role than usual in your life. You may feel fuzziness, impatience and dissatisfaction with how things are shaping up. It may be because of the way expectations meet the reality. You want more than what mundane reality offers, but perhaps too much.
