February 2018 Monthly Horoscope: What Will Eclipse Season Bring Up For You?
The edgy lunar eclipse on January 31 is only the beginning of eclipse season, and the first few weeks of February unfold to lead up to the solar eclipse in Aquarius on the fifteenth. For the first two weeks of February, the universe is open and expansive, inviting in new career opportunities, relationships, and opportunities. But no lie. These weeks are going to be intense. It’s only in the latter part of the month where all the shake ups surrounding the eclipses become clear.
The weekend of February 17 holds a Mars-Neptune square. This could be a great weekend. Don’t overthink it or try to find meaning. Just enjoy. On the twenty-third, a quarter moon in Gemini in aspect to Saturn inspires you to take a risk. All month, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn crank up the responsibility, but no pain, no gain. This is a very powerful month. Take advantage of it.
Aries February Horoscope
You start the month with some chaos from the past full moon. Ride it out and don’t get yanked into conflicts that aren’t your own. You have enough on your plate. On the eigth, the moon conjoins Mercury in fiery Sagittarius. Expect action. You need to nail down what you want and go for it. But you’re also pretty used to quick outcomes, and may be frustrated that nothing seems clear in the beginning of the month. You may feel like you’re spinning your wheels. Patience. Everything will become clear in time. Do what you can, but don’t rush anything, especially contracts or commitments. The new moon and solar eclipse on February 15 urge you to hang back and let others lead the rest of the month. Your time to shine is coming.

Taurus February Horoscope
Your social life is uplifted at the beginning of the month, and it can be tough to prioritize work and play. On the tenth, when Venus enters Pisces, your romantic life could receive a boost. You need to be proactive, though. If you’re single, join some apps and start swiping. This month, for you, is about deepening friendships and commitments. You may not have realized just how much you missed socializing. The new moon and solar eclipse on February 15 could lead to a breakthrough—this breakthrough may be one you didn’t expect. For example, maybe a new friend has a lead on a new job or a coworker has a person to introduce you to for a potential relationship. In other words, stop sticking people into categories. This month is all about mixing things (and people up.) Making time for fun is not a luxury or indulgence.

Gemini February Horoscope
You’re in a social mood, Gemini, but be careful. Your work may be sliding, and you may need to get things back on track before the new moon of the fifteenth. It can be hard to reign in pleasure. You’re enjoying so much of your life, but some schedules, routine, and order could be needed. On February 25, Mercury conjoins Neptune and a dream could come true—but you have to put in the work first. You’ve been living in a bit of a dreamy space this month, but day dreams need anchors. It’s time to get some discipline.

You wore your heart on your sleeve and things didnt turn out as you hoped. It’s horrible and it’s okay. Learn to be okay with the in-between. The new moon on the fifteenth sheds light on your innate talents and abilities, and the few days surrounding this date could be a huge career and confidence boost. On February 17, Mercury enters Pisces, encouraging you to move on. You’re braver, bolder, smarter, and stronger than ever. Own it. Believe it.

The Leo full moon at the end of January may have been intense and chaotic, but now things have calmed down a bit. So what do you want?

In the beginning of the month, you may be too invested in a reality that’s all your own making. It’s time to change the script and listen to others for a full reveal of what’s really going on in your life right now. On February 18, when the sun enters Pisces, it’s time for a change. Have you been frustrated with how life is going? Change up your routine or commit to a new habit.

Libra February Horoscope
Your emotions are all over the place at the beginning of the month, thanks to late January’s full moon. Because of this, it’s hard for you to figure out next steps. Your best course of action is to breathe, wait, and relax. Things will become clear toward the new moon. It’s not bad to rest and hold back the first few weeks of the month.

Your ambition is high at the beginning of the month. You know what you want and are poised to get it. But you can’t let emotions get in the way. Passion is great, but in order to make positive next steps you must lead with your head and your heart in cooperation. The new moon and solar eclipse on the fifteenth may bring up a family issue. Confront it head on. You may need to be the leader for this, and it’s best to accept the responsibility rather than pass the issue off to someone else. You can handle it best.

Sagittarius February Horoscope
This month can be busy, hectic, confusing AF and also pretty damn memorable. Perspective is everything. The month starts with a bang and you may have to put out some fires that have come up from various issues stemming from the eclipse. It’s a good time to sort out best practices so these issues don’t happen again. You may have been burning the candle at both ends or stretching yourself too thin. The new moon on the fifteenth encourages fun, relaxation, and maybe an unexpected vacation or day off to take care of you. The Moon-Jupiter quincunx on February 24 may cause some self-doubt … let it run its course.
