A government shutdown that lasted 35 days, a Polar Vortex in the northern part of the US, and DMX being released from jail; January was definitely long and full of surprises.
Apparently I'm not the only one that feels this way. I just received an app notification on my phone that said, "January was a rough year but we made it." As I hibernate from the -25 degree temperature here in Chicago, I can't help but wish it was Spring already. Lol. Now that we are into February, I'm hopeful that we'll see some major changes coming our way. On Monday, February 4th, a New Moon in Aquarius ushers in powerful energy for change. With the Sun, Moon, and Mercury in Aquarius, this is a perfect time to revisit those goals and dreams you've had in the back of your mind for months now. Quick tip: writing down your goals is the first step in manifesting your dream life! On February 10th, Mercury moves into gentle and compassionate Pisces for the next few weeks. Don't be surprised if old issues come up for you during this time. Try not to overreact; instead, lean in and try to understand what the Universe is trying to teach you. On Valentine's Day Mars moves into Taurus, dialing up the sensuality and physicality that Venus-ruled Taurus is known for. If you have a special someone on this day, some fun in the sheets is definitely in order. I wonder how many Valentine's Day babies will be born in Oct/November? On February 18th, the Sun joins Mercury and moves into Pisces. The next day, February 19th, a Full Moon in Virgo makes a close orbit to the Earth, making the Moon look huge! This is also called a Supermoon. This powerful Virgo Full Moon is all about service; to ourselves and to others. Although we will be covered in a Neptunian haze during Pisces season, this Supermoon gives us the opportunity to get ourselves in order. This is a good time to think of practical steps to reach some of your goals, take inventory of your health and fitness, and clean out the clutter in your life.
Here are your Sun Sign Horoscopes for February!
March 21st-April 19th
The Sun continues to illuminate your life area of friendships and community in the beginning of this month, and you may notice yourself catching up with old friends and meeting new people that you vibe with. Tap into your natural assertive and extroverted nature and arrange a group hangout with some of your favorite people. But make sure this happens before February 19th, when the Sun shifts into Pisces and into your 12th house, which is all about alone time, introspection, and healing.
April 20th-May 20th
Taurus is known as being one of the hardest-working signs in the zodiac, and with the Sun rolling through your life area of career & public image, you may find yourself feeling more ambitious and "in the zone" at work. Don't be surprised if you finally get recognition for the work that you have been doing. This is a great time to go for that promotion at work or put your business ideas out there.
May 21st-June 20th
The Sun has been in your life area of higher thinking, spirituality, and philosophy for a couple of weeks now, and you may have found yourself deep in a pool of information gathering and message spreading.

June 21st-July 22nd
The Sun is in your life area of finances, introspection, and transformation, and you probably have been feeling like staying in your shell lately.

Is there a close relationship with someone that needs healing? Take inventory of your life and be prepared to shed anything that is no longer serving you.
July 23rd-August 22nd
Your ruling planet, the Sun, is shining on your life area of relationships & partnerships, and if you are single and ready to mingle, this could be a time you meet someone special to share the cold winter nights with. If someone already has your heart, you may find that you and your partner seem to be more in-sync with each other during this time. Regardless of your relationship status, the New Moon in Aquarius on February 4th guarantees that you will find yourself vibing with someone on a personal level- be it a romantic interest or a possible new friend.
August 23rd-September 22nd
Have you been feeling pretty good lately Virgo? It may be because the Sun is in your life area of health & day to day routine. Have you re-committed to your health and fitness goals? Feeling much more organized at work, school, or home? If not, the Cosmos are working in your favor right now! This would be a great time to binge "Marie Kondo" on Netflix and get rid of anything in your home that does not bring joy!

November 22nd-December 21st
Your life area of communication and curiosity is the focus this month, which may inspire you to sign up for a new course or take a short trip this month.

Write a blog about your favorite topic and/or start a conversation on Facebook to engage with others. Your audience will soon be begging for more!
December 22nd-January 19th
You work hard for the money, and as the Sun moves through your life area of money, values, and possessions, you are focused on creating a stable foundation for yourself. Have you been saving to purchase a new car or home? This is a great time to do so. Are you feeling the desire to level-up in life? Reach out to a potential mentor and invite them to meet for coffee so you can pick their brain.
January 20th-February 18th

Focusing on your spirituality? If it builds your confidence and makes you a better person, you are on the right path!
February 19th-March 20th
The Sun has been hibernating in your life area of healing & hidden things which, for you Pisces, may feel strangely normal as you are used to swimming in the deep waters of the spirit. You may not have been feeling like being a social butterfly lately, and that's because your mind, body, and soul are in the middle of a cosmic clear-out. Pay attention to your dreams and other signs from the Universe during this time. Whatever you heal within yourself will propel you for success when the Sun enters your sign on February 18th.
