ASTROLOGY 101: Here’s your horoscope for February

Georgia Nicols presents her look at what awaits you in the coming month

Monday Magazine horoscope columnist Georgia Nicols takes a look at what could be ahead for you in the month of February.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Yay! You are popular! Not only will you be schmoozing with everyone, especially good friends, you will also be more involved in clubs and associations. Enjoy hanging out with younger people. You have lots of energy and drive for the coming month because fiery Mars is in your sign. Meanwhile, Venus wants you to travel and explore the world! Venus will also encourage you to visit museums, art galleries, beautiful parks and stimulating places because your appreciation of beauty is heightened.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Once a year, the Sun sits at the top of your chart for four weeks. That time has arrived. This means you are in the “spotlight.” Everyone notices you more, especially bosses, parents and VIPs. (This includes the police.) By magic, you look great to others! They see you as competent, capable and strong. Therefore, use this month to try for a promotion or to promote your ideas. It’s the perfect time to ask for approval or permission for something. Meanwhile, you feel passionate and sexy! Plus it will be easy to get money, gifts and goodies from others.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This month you want to travel to new places and meet new faces. You want to learn as much as possible through courses, workshops or school. You will be fascinated by people from different cultures and other countries. People will love to meet you and be in your company because both Venus and Jupiter are opposite your sign, improving all your relationships with everyone. Mars pumps your energy to deal with groups and friends. Plan on good conversations, fun with others, and hopefully, a change of scenery!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You’re in the zone this month because you feel ambitious and in charge of things. Coworkers and everything to do with your job are supportive. This is good. Now you have the time and energy to focus on a lot of red-tape details regarding shared property, inheritances, insurance disputes or anything to do with the wealth and resources of others or the wealth and resources for which you might be responsible. No worries. I repeat you’re in the zone – you’re on top of things! You’re working hard and you’re in control.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This month, the Sun is opposite your sign, which sharpens your focus on your closest relationships and partnerships. It gives you more detachment and objectivity, which in turn, allows you to learn more about yourself through these relationships. You can examine these relationships to see how they do or do not fulfill your needs and wants. Obviously, for your own benefit, you must be as good for your partner as he or she is for you. This will not be a time to go it alone. Instead, form working units with others to get things done.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You will be happy this month because the arrangement of the planets in your chart urges you to become more efficient in everything you do! You will give more thought to how you manage your life and how you take care of daily details. How can you make things run more smoothly to make your life easier? Likewise, what can you do to boost your health? You will also enjoy redecorating at home and entertaining good friends so that you can show them what you did! Sex and intimacy will be powerful, perhaps even transforming. Oh my!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Good news this month! It’s party city for you! More precisely, you will feel free to express yourself and be exactly who you are. Your aim will be to do what you want to do and to set your own priorities. Amusing diversions, recreational fun, parties, the arts, movies, musical performances, sports events and playful times with children will be tops on your menu. Basically, you will seek relationships that are fun! In fact, for some, new romance will blossom! This is the perfect time to grab a vacation, big or small.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This month, your attention turns to home, family and your private life. Many will tackle home repairs and be involved in family discussions. However, this is also be a good time to intellectually withdraw to examine your personal life and how it does or does not meet your needs. Now is the time to express to those where you live, how you wish things would be. You’ll find it easy to work hard and be productive. Small wonder that you can boost your earnings in the next month, because this is what you will do for the entire year! Oh yes, “I smell money!”

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Your daily pace accelerates now with short trips, errands, appointments, conversations with siblings, relatives and neighbours plus increased reading, writing and studying. You will be keen to enlighten others about your views. Venus in your sign makes you charming and diplomatic. Mars will spur your desire to explore sports, fun diversions and romance. Ever since December, your life started to get easier. You are still work but somehow, there is less stress. This is the divine protection of your ruler Jupiter being in your sign.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You are never casual about money (Lord knows you hate waste). This month, you will be more focused on your wealth, assets, earnings, possessions and cash flow. “Money, money, money!” You will have excellent moneymaking ideas. You will talk about financial projects with others. Tension on the home front might arise from increased chaos and activity; but some of this activity will be based on your desire to initiate renovations and improvements. Meanwhile, secret trysts and private love affairs might take place for some of you.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Ta da! This month the Sun is in your sign. This happens only once a year, and when it does, it boosts your energy and attracts people and favourable circumstances to you. This is your chance to recharge your batteries for the rest of year. Mercury is also in your sign making you more talkative, inquisitive and busy with ideas and tasks. Meanwhile, Mars will lend extra emphasis to your communications making you persuasive and convincing! You will put a lot of yourself into what you have to say. Enjoy warm friendships with others, including interactions with groups.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Your personal year is drawing to a close. This means this month is the perfect time to take stock and give yourself a report card. How well are you doing at the art of living? Look back over your shoulder at the previous year. How do you want your new year to be different? Jot down three or four points that you want to make sure you can focus on in your new year. One thing is certain; your reputation with bosses and parents will shine in 2019 because for the first time in over a decade, Jupiter is at the top of your chart boosting your chance to make a name for yourself.
