Georgia Nicols' Horoscope: February
Aries (March 21-April 19)
This is the best time all year to set goals. Both Mercury (thinking and communicating) and the Sun (energy focus) will pass through the part of your chart concerning hopes and dreams for the future. This will also energize all your relationships with others. Your popularity will increase in the coming month. By all means, accept all invitations. Enjoy schmoozing. And share your future goals with others because their feedback will help you.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
This is the only time all year when the Sun is at the top of your chart shining down on you with a light that is flattering, which is why you impress bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs. Obviously, you can use this to your advantage! Just be yourself, do your thing – and reap the admiration of others. Of course, Mars will ensure that you are working hard – and hard work always pays off. Travel for pleasure is likely. Pitch your ideas to parents, bosses, teachers and VIPs.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
It’s time to explore your universe. Travel to new places, new faces, new ideas and new experiences because you want adventure! But more than that, you want to learn something new in order to expand your world and your experience of life. Therefore, if you can’t travel, be a tourist in your own city. Go places you’ve never been before. Visit University campuses, fascinating architectural buildings, ethnic restaurants, places that tourists go. Romance with someone from another culture could begin.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Lucky Jupiter still protects you and brings good fortune. Fair Venus encourages warm relationships with others, especially partners and close friends. However, this month, the Sun will intensify all your emotions. Not only intimate relations (sex) but all emotional exchanges with others will have a passionate intensity that surprises you. Increased activity and chaos on the home front are something you have to accept. It won’t last forever and it also gives you energy to get things done.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
This month the Sun is as far away from you as it gets all year. Since the Sun is your source of energy this means you need more sleep. In addition, as the Sun and Mercury sit opposite you, your focus on partnerships and close friendships will be more important. This is also your best chance all year to observe your style of relating. Meanwhile, Mars will amplify all your communications with others, while Venus attracts work-related romance. (“My office or yours?”)
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Not all Virgos are neatniks. Some can be slobs. Regardless of your compulsion for order, this month all Virgos will want to get better organized. It’s time. Make things easier for yourself and get hold of whatever you need to do a good job. Buy shelving, file folders, cleaning supplies, paint, boxes - anything that will help you to do a bang-up job so that you feel you are in control of your world and on top of your scene. Ever the perfectionist, you will also want to improve your health.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
It’s party city! Grab every opportunity to express your creativity. You want the freedom to be yourself. Like Popeye, you’re puffing “I yam what I yam.” This month is perfect for a vacation. Enjoy social diversions, sports events, romantic adventures, love affairs, the performing arts and playful times with children. Many of you have a strong urge to redecorate your digs. All of you feel energized about life, especially balancing work and fascinating dinner conversations. You want it all – and it looks like you will have it.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Now your focus is on home and family. You’ll also likely spend time on home repairs. Partly this is because you are starting to see how much love there is in your world. You will also be more aware of the beauty there is around you every day. This heightened appreciation of everything will translate into a loving concern for family and where you live. Meanwhile, travel opportunities and chances to explore publishing and higher education look sweet. (“I’m packing tropical.”)
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
You hit the pavement running this month as your daily pace accelerates with short trips, increased reading and writing plus conversations with everyone. You are so juiced about life, you will talk to people about your ideas for the future. You will also be more active with groups and friends, perhaps competitively. This is because you have the physical energy to pursue your dreams! Since you are future-oriented, it thrills you to push things in the direction you want to go.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
You are focused on cash flow, money and how to boost your earnings. Some will see ways to do this in their current job; others will seek ways to earn money on the side or get a different job. The reason for this is you identify with your earnings right now. Of course, this isn’t true. You are not your bank account. (You are your car.) That’s why you want to make everything around you look as good as possible. Actually, this is the perfect time to shop for wardrobe goodies because you like what you see in the mirror.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
This is the only time all year when the Sun is in your sign, which means you can recharge your batteries for the rest of the year. Important people and favourable circumstances will come your way. Make the most of it. Secret love affairs will take place for many. All of you are keen to travel and explore more of the world. Some will go back to school or take a course. Opportunities in publishing, the media, medicine and the law dovetail with great blessings to improve your job or get a better job.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
This is the month to set goals and make plans for your new year. Earl Nightingale said, “People with goals succeed because they know where they are going.” It’s true! Do yourself a favour and write down five things you hope will happen this year. You might look farther down the road and ask yourself where you want to be five years from now. What do you have to do this year to start to get there? Friendships are sweet. A friend could become a lover. Include vacation plans because a fun getaway is on the books in 2014.
