February is a month of radical shifts with a few sign changes as well as the Chinese New Year entering the last sign of the 12-year cycle. All planets will be direct the whole month, which gives the green light in making changes and starting new projects.
On February 4th we are graced with a New Moon in Aquarius which supports planting new seeds and making new friendships. This energy favors innovation and networking – bringing together groups of people that support an important cause. You may benefit from sharing your ideas, opinions, and joining in group activities. The actions that you put forth during this time will be long lasting symbolize a new beginning in direction. If you have been wanting to get out there more and mingle with like minded people, or to showcase your craft out to the public, then this is the time to plant those seeds.
The very next day, on February 5th is the Chinese New Year. 2019 is the year of the Earth Pig; a symbol of wealth, luxury and abundance. Being an Earth element, it is supportive of stability and so the theme is cultivating prosperity and then maintaining it. Our spending habits and indulgences will be put on display this year so to make financial changes as well as to determine what we truly find value in, and how we can maintain a healthy balance within our material lives.
Mercury enters Pisces on February 10th and will remain until after March when we experience our first Mercury Retrograde of the year. This is a time of fog or unfocused – communication, especially within the workforce or important documents will not be supported. The intuitive side, such as our artistic or spiritual side will be favored during this time. When Mercury is in Pisces, it brings the subconscious, conscious, and doesn’t do too well with an overdose of reality. Information may not be clear, even our own thoughts can seem distorted during this time. We prefer to be alone with our deepest thoughts as we dive into our inner-self, so to express our creativity and become more poetic within our thinking. This is a wonderful time for artists and those on a spiritual quest, but not so good for those who lack those right-brained qualities.
On Valentine’s Day, February 14th, we have another major shift when Mars enters Taurus. When it was in Aries, we put the pedal to the medal and raced through starting new projects, and so now we experience a bit of a slow down and analyze which one of these we give more energy to. This is a time of growing and nourishing the seeds we had planted and cutting away the unnecessary that is only a waste of time. For the next six weeks we will experience changes within our love lives and financial matters as we crave for more stability and durability. Before making any decisions, we will be inspired to take our time in counting the pros and cons, to determine if any investments of our time, resources, and energy will truly be worth it.
February 18th the Sun changes into Pisces. Not only does this put your emotions on display, but our intuitive side is also strengthened during the next 30 days. When the Sun is in Pisces we are fueled with more compassion, empathy and are much softer in our approach to others. We dive deeper into our unconscious and may find it hard to separate imagination from reality as we feel more intensely.
Our creative side is fueled as the Super Full Moon in Virgo makes its appearance on February 19th. This is a very important moon which puts importance on making certain endings in our life in order to give life to new projects, lifestyles and relationships. When the Moon is in Virgo it brings our emotional and spiritual health into question, influencing us to analyze our daily habits and rituals to determine if they truly serve or hinder us. Communication is put on display as our intuitive qualities are strengthened. This may be a time of channeling insights from source on how to make healthy improvements in our lives by cutting out what is unnecessary or unhealthy.
The month ends with giving us a new perspective or point of view concerning our love life, relationships, and finances when Venus shifts into innovative Aquarius on February 27th. While this is a very fast paced energy that gets you moving quick in making changes, especially when throwing out the old, you don’t want to act too hastily as mistakes could be made. The grass sometimes isn’t greener on the other side and the freedom we seek may be a spark that is to be investigated and not acted upon – you want to understand where this feeling arises and assess the situation first without making a quick judgement and potentially ruining a good thing we have in our lives.

GENERAL / SELF
Mother of Swords
February calls for you to use your head more than your heart, Aries. You must see the truth behind a matter that is shrouded with deception or seems unclear when you dissect it from an emotional perspective. Your powers of discernment are highlighted this month.
February is a bit… selfish; in having to put your needs before others, and also experiencing the same – it’s almost as if there is this sense of helping someone in need, but only when it benefits you in the end. With that kind of mentality, it may be hard to truly rely on anyone as you can only depend on loyalty up to a point. There also may be trouble if you go seeking help from those outside or new to your circle, which may arise around the time of the New Moon in Aquarius – you may experience an increase of social contacts and ‘new friends’ (not everyone you meet is a friend, Aries!).
You might have your sights on something that is unattainable – and of course a typical Aries only wants what they can’t have – but that never stops them from trying. This might be a hard-to-reach goal that is going to be nearly difficult to obtain, and you may have to depend solely on yourself to reach it. You may harbor a lot of emotional feeling for this as well – it means a lot to you, and it upsets you that you must fight so hard to get it. You will find it much easier to obtain if you don’t let your emotions get the best of you, otherwise you could end up throwing it all away because of a meltdown or temper tantrum.

XVII the Star
February brings renewal and inspires you to grasp onto opportunities that had once considered too far out there to achieve. You are a realist, Taurus, but this month you are giving hope a chance as you hold faith in the divine. The potential of what may come from a treasured goal is evident, and so you are inspired and full of purpose, which are powerful qualities for a Taurus to posses when backed with determination and focus.
When you ask for a sign then don’t doubt it when it comes. It is important that you don’t cast judgement and make sure to leave room for the unexpected, as you may receive the assistance from a source you had not considered before.
Something must be healed, and from what the other cards show, it may be a relationship that calls for reconciliation and renewal. While you cannot change the past, you can still empower your present with the lessons you have learned and experiences you’ve underwent, by acknowledging these you can evolve and thus inspire positive movement in this area.
Your gifts of manifestation are heightened in February – watch your thoughts and check your intentions – make sure you are being authentic and emitting at your highest frequency.

XIX the Sun
In February you feel as if the fates have you in their favor. Not only do you get the mental stimulation that nourishes your soul, but you also feel carefree in your expression and inspired to let your inner-child play.
Expansion is the theme for the month, and you’re experiencing growth in both your social circle and your financial situation. You may be working on more than one project this month; both for pleasure and for advancement. While this month may be quite eventful, you feel as if you aren’t even working up a sweat because you’re whole-heartedly enjoying all that you do.
You receive the reassurance that you are on the right path as resources and opportunities find you with ease. It’s as if where you put your focus, you can move forward with little struggle because you empower a sense of optimism that proves what positive thinking can do.
You may also be taking a small vacation or a trip for work that feels more like pleasure. Not only is February quite enjoyable, but you also may meet someone who turns out to be incredibly valuable as well as important. Pay attention to what others say and keep an open mind.
GENERAL / SELF
This is not a month for playing small, however, being too large may backfire as well. You can be strong in the subtlest ways, Cancer. You make waves through the most gentle and often unseen motions – just as the ocean is pulled by the energies of the moon, you are so very in tune and work well in the background. With that said, you may need to consider the ways you can make progress in finding resolutions within a difficult situation this month by working quietly in the background.
You may come across someone who is rather ill-tempered and strongly opinionated. You rub one another the wrong way as this person is just difficult to deal with – it may even seem as if they are projecting all of their negativity onto you. Do not stoop to their level or allow their projections to bring your frequency down. You might not be able to change their mind, but you can soothingly coax them back to your favor by simply being you loveable self and not pushing your ego into the mix.
This is also a month of taking action and doing what is right. You may be called upon to help or take some added responsibility to ensure the wellbeing of someone you care deeply for. Your act of kindness will not go unnoticed and you may be regarded to as a hero for helping them through a darker time.

Boundaries, Leo. You need to not only lay down some limitations, but you also need to understand your own. There is too much resting on your shoulders this month and you might get to a breaking point when realizing that you can hold it up any longer. Release some of these burdens, because a lot that you are carrying right now might not be your responsibility entirely. You have been taking on more than your fair share and enough is enough.
All work and no play is definitely not the style of a Leo, but you barely have any energy left over to do the things you love. You may feel that even simple regimens of self-care such as a relaxing bath is too much of a chore. You might have agreed to take on a little extra slack in the past, but it is now becoming a burden more than anything and is extremely overwhelming. Those who are depending on you don’t understand the toll that it is taking on you, and so you need to speak up. You might feel this is a moral issue and being a noble Lion, you don’t want to let others down, but, they are more than capable to now fend for themselves.
When you lighten the load that has been weighing you down, you will be able to free up the energy for abundance and harmony to flow once again in your life. This month might be difficult in the sense of having to speak up more than once about your boundaries and limits, but it is all for a good reason, so to shift your environment into being a little less hectic for you.

II the High Priestess
You are incredibly in tune this month, Virgo. You sense something is amiss and while your intuitive nudges are correct, you might not have all the material evidence to validate this. So, you will have to keep things to yourself until what you need manifests. This could be frustrating and might have you second guessing your feelings. Don’t. Just be patient and quietly go with the flow of things until the timing is right.
It is especially important that you listen to yourself, as while you might sense something negative occurring, you may also sense something else that is somewhat magical. Listen to your gut, and most of all, have faith in the divine for delivering all that you need.
You are insanely logical, practical and often don’t take a risk or shot in the dark until you have all the facts. While this quality keeps you on the safe side of the fence, sometimes you end up blocking opportunities and abundance. This is not the month to allow your pessimistic nature to take the lead.
February pushes you outside your comfort zone and inspires growth.
GENERAL / SELF
Growth is the name and game of February, Libra, and this growth is pushing you onto a path that caters to more balance and harmony in your life. There may be big things unfolding, but you must be patient as they materialize. You may receive something enormous, but in small doses, and so moderation is important, in not only how much you tackle on to your to-do list, but also the rewards you wish to receive.
You are a natural peace-maker and often try to avoid conflict, but when it does peak through your life, you put your diplomatic skills to work and do your best to maintain harmony in all of your relationships and situations. You may reconcile your differences with someone whom you had a recent conflict with, and this allows for you to move this relationship forward with more understanding and respect towards one another.
February offers a sense of renewal, rekindled love, and more enjoyment. Balance is being restored. You may also meet someone new in your life who holds important significance – if not during this month, then they will in the near future. This connection will flow naturally, as if you have known one another for a very long time.

XV the Devil
February is going to be an incredibly powerful month for you, Scorpio. You are going through a massive shift this month that will follow with a release. Drastic and quick movement is in store for you.
This is all due from taking a hard look at yourself, your environment, and your social circle, and realizing what needed to be transformed. In the recent months you have been analyzing deeply on what serves you, and what hinders you. When Jupiter reigned over your sign the past year, it emphasized the need for shadow work, and while this influence was bestowed upon everyone, it hit you twice as hard. You had to face certain fears and understand your desires. So, this month is going to give you a powerful boost of energy into your transmutation.
There may be an area this month that calls for caution – there is an issue of control – either you are being controlled, or the one being controlling. This is for an ego need, to feel superior and may even involve manipulation for the sake of gaining power. This may be an awakening experience needed to coax in the self-realizations and environmental changes.

Ace of Pentacles
February offers you reassurance and stability. You feel grounded and able to move forward on projects that might have seemed a little larger than life to even you, Sag – and that means they must have been big. It’s not that you were take a chance or a shot in the dark, but you may have had to wait for more resources and groundwork to happen before you can move forward with them. And so, this month you are at the starting line, ready to go.
Comfort is also your aim and you may be looking at areas in your life where you feel most discomfort, and then assessing the changes that must be made in order to reach your goal. You are famous for being the most carefree of the zodiac, but you have certain things in your life that too constricting and cause a great deal of stress. Changing lifestyle habits or the way you spend money can bring about the freedom and sense of stability you crave.
You may have to reach out to someone for help in order to maintain more structure in your life, and while it might feel like a drag to have someone governing certain aspects of your daily life, you must see the benefits that this will bring.

Mother of Cups
If you happen to have children, Capricorn, then they are going to be the basis of some of the themes this month. Regardless if you do or don’t, there is a lot of healing that will take place that directly connects to your own inner-child. There is a sense of imagination, creativity, nurturing, and also protection. As the Queen of Hearts reigns over this position of the reading for February, you will be feeling more in tune with the more feminine, right brained, qualities within yourself. This may come from feeling loved by others and more aligned to a sense of purpose in your environmental experiences.
The women in your life are also very important as their influence greatly fuels the feminine aspects within yourself. You may be joining forces when it comes to sharing a hobby or passion that is based on your spirituality – such as a meditation group or discussions of spiritual interests.
In February you are more in tune when connecting with others. You are also more in touch with your spiritual senses and may consider doing some much-needed research on your intuitive gifts. Your dreams are also very important, as you may experience vivid ones that foretell important insights regarding significant situations.

Happy Birthday Aquarius!
Wake up, Aquarius. You need to be focused this month and you might be feeling anything but that – you are not seeing a situation correctly and it may be cause to some of the difficulty you face. Also, be very careful with who you seek advice from, especially if you go to more than one source of wisdom, as you could get conflicting guidance and cause you to feel more confusion than necessary. Basically, not only do you need to keep to yourself for the sake of taking the time to ground and find your center, but you also need to seek out the wisdom of your own soul for the insights you need. You might be dealing with a situation that is being fueled by your ego, and as you quiet your mind down and diffuse from your environment for a moment, you will find that much of the difficulty you face, is completely avoidable if you see it from a clear perspective.
You may also be moving closer to achieving a treasured goal, and this may take more of your time and energy, which may be difficult because you are quite busy with many other things in your life. Your social life and also relationships have a lot of activity this month, and also your career. Another reason why being grounded will aid in better management of your energy and focus.

Daughter of Wands
Dependability is the focus of February, and not only will you be questioning the reliability of others, but your own may be examined as well. When you say you’re going to do something, make sure you do it. While you aren’t resentful, you still hold a sour taste for broken promises, and while you are also very sympathetic, or empathic, you may want to hold back from making any yourself.
An opportunity may also present itself, but, you might not see it clearly – you might be overly optimistic or too confident that you could end up missing important details that need your attention and focus. How you apply yourself will determine the outcome or success.
You may need to think and also act more independently this month, which may help you greatly when others approach you with opportunities or insights – you want to do your own groundwork to ensure what you are getting into, will be worthwhile, and not to chase a pipe dream that was sold to you because of someone’s enthusiasm made it seem better than it actually is.
