HOROSCOPES – Georgia Nichols

Your stars for FEBRUARY 2016

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This month two things are important: The first is friendship. You might realize how important an existing friendship is. Or perhaps you will mend a broken friendship or deepen an existing one. Possibly, your association with a group will be clearer. And of course, some of you will make new friends. The second thing that will be important is that this is the best month of the year for you to make goals. Because your idealism is aroused, you will ask yourself what it is you want your life to really be. Dare to be specific!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This month is the only time all year when the Sun is at the top of your chart acting like a spotlight on you – and this light is flattering! Naturally, this is a wonderful benefit that you can use it to your advantage. Since you have the limelight, and you look good in it, now is the time to direct a project to completion. People will endorse you. They will listen to you. You don’t have to be super strong to convince others that you know what you’re doing. You are out there in larger society boosting your reputation in the eyes of others.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You are a curious, restless sign that needs stimulation and freedom. This month is the perfect time to get outta Dodge. Go somewhere new and different to stir things up! Satisfy your need for adventure and a chance to learn something new. Some will explore opportunities in publishing, the media, medicine, the law and higher education. Relations with partners and close friends are warm now. Do new things, meet new people and learn new ideas so you can expand your world!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You will be more passionate and intense about everything this month. Yes, you will be sexually passionate. However, at a more subtle level, you will be just as passionate about discussions regarding shared property, jointly-owned wealth, taxes, debt, inheritances and insurance disputes. You will also feel playful, prankish and flirtatious this month! Many of you will go out of your way to party, enjoy the arts, see or participate in sports events and have fun with playful activities with children. Enjoy fun times while you can!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is the only time all year when the Sun, opposite your sign for the next four weeks, robs you of some of your energy because the Sun represents energy. In a word – this means you will need more sleep and more rest. No biggie. In addition, this polarized position of the Sun will prompt you to focus on your intimate one-to-one encounters with others. This is an excellent time to study these relationships to see how well they do or do not fill your needs. It’s not a time to go it alone. Au contraire! Others can help you in the coming month.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Down deep, you wish you could be organized. You wish you would exercise regularly and eat healthy. Naturally, these wishes do not guarantee anything – but they do show your intent. This month, you have a chance of achieving your wishes because you will want to become more organized, more productive and more effective in everything you do. This might be expressed through your job or anything that you choose to embrace. For example, many of you will be redecorating at home; while others will throw energy into writing, teaching, selling, marketing and acting.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Lucky you! This month is one of the most playful times of the year for you! Basically, you want to be free to express yourself and do what you want. And one of the things that you want is a fun time! That’s why you will feel lighter, more carefree, and interested in the arts, sports events, parties and fun diversions. You might have a stronger focus on children, as well. Fortunately, fair Venus will sweeten your words so that you are diplomatic and charming with everyone. In fact, you can make money from your words!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Home, family and your private life are your focus this month. Basically, you want to enjoy familiar surroundings, and cocoon at home so that you can relax and contemplate the coming year. This is certainly going to be a powerful year for you, and a very popular one. Therefore, it would be wise to think about how you will handle this increased power and popularity. Ideally, not only you should benefit, but others as well. Then you have a win/win situation, which is always the best because what goes around, comes around.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This month you hit the pavement running because it ushers in a time of fast-paced activity and accelerated energy. Short trips, errands, and increased opportunities to relate to others (especially siblings and neighbours) will create a jam-packed schedule for you. Midst all this activity, do take time out to buy some wardrobe treasures because you couldn’t pick a better month to do so. And it’s necessary to look great because this is the year where you will promote your reputation in the eyes of others. It’s all coming together now.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

‘Show me the money!’ This month your focus is on money, cash flow, earnings and your assets in general become an important focus for you. Basically, this is your time to survey your wealth and ask yourself how much it helps you or hinders you. Sometimes what we own becomes an albatross. Does it serve your needs or do you serve the needs of what you own? The bottom line is what you own should make your life easier not more difficult. You are a thrifty and you hate waste; but you also hate dead weight.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Happy Birthday! This your chance to recharge your batteries for the rest of the year. Almost by magic, you will attract important people and favourable situations to you. It’s appropriate to be concerned with personal matters and your own needs. The truth is your first duty is to yourself right now. And when you think about it, if you don’t take care of yourself, how can you be of any use to anyone else? You are an idealist who wants to make the world a better place. This begins with being strong and ready to act. Invest in yourself.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is the perfect time to ponder what you want your new year to be. Think about your goals for 2016. This is a powerful time for Pisces because not only are your relationships a strong support and benefit to you now, this is also when you are in your time of harvest, reaping the seeds you have planted since 2008. (Some can even look back to 2003.) Powerful years don’t happen frequently; so it’s important to take advantage of them when they occur. Ya think?
