HOROSCOPES | FEBRUARY 2019
By Leah Samuels of Moonlight Offerings
February may be the shortest month of the year, but don’t let it pass you by. With all planets in direct motion, we are presented with a promising window for progress. The beginning of February marks the halfway point between seasons. The ideas planted on the New Moon/New Year are beginning to show signs of life. Now is the time to breathe hope and inspiration into them. February’s New Moon in Aquarius on February 4th brings a clear cosmic air, an encouraging time to set intentions and move your visions forward.
Saturn, the planet that rules both Capricorn and Aquarius, is in Capricorn this year. Saturn offers lessons around pacing, and the importance of maintaining integrity throughout your process. While Saturn is often associated with planning for the future, the Sun in Aquarius knows that the only real way to create your future is through the choices you make right now in this present moment. Act in ways that express authenticity. Community-oriented Aquarius values innovation and collective change. The time to act deliberately is now, the time to love is always now.
The Sun moves from Aquarius into sensitive Pisces on February 18th, followed by the Full Moon at 0 degrees Virgo on February 19th. The Full Moon represents a time of illumination. The Virgo-Pisces axis seeks to balance spirituality with practicality, and organization with fluidity. Leading up to the Full Moon, Mercury conjuncts Neptune in Pisces, and we are reminded that there are multiple forms of intelligence. Tune into your dreams, intuition, and creativity for information. Notice where you may need to loosen or establish boundaries in your life. This can help shift your relationships into a more honest place.
This month, increase your awareness of the interconnectedness of the world around you. Your environment influences you, and you also influence your environment. You are a part of a living, breathing whole. Be responsible for your actions and your own energy, and approach life with an openness and willingness to learn and grow. This month is a reminder to be an active participant in your life, even if that means stepping outside of your comfort zone. Let’s work and love hard this month.
Passion, Boundaries, Honesty
You’re learning how to both harness and direct your energy this month. External pressures can breed frustration. Being in dialogue with those you care about will contribute to your growth this month. Avoid taking shortcuts when it comes to getting what you want. Be honest about the habits or fears that hold you back so you can set clear boundaries with yourself and others. As you move past difficulties, you’ll experience clarity and a sense of renewal.
Progress, Intuition, Build
You have so much to offer. Step outside of your comfort zone a bit. Make connections and put yourself out there. Explore your options, and take the steps you believe are necessary. It’s okay if things feel a little stop & go. Everything will eventually fall into place. This is because of your own strength, intuition, and determination. Lean into ritual and routine this month. Remember what it is that keeps you committed to what you love.
Relationships, Communication, Choice
Though your energy may be pulled in different directions, the common thread of focus is relationships. It’s time to get even more clear about your personal values and beliefs. A part of cultivating self-love, worth, and respect is through living by these standards. What is your truth? Stand by it, particularly when challenged. Choose to act in alignment with your best self, and remember that everything is grounds for learning. Relationships can be like mirrors, showing you what qualities you want to cultivate or cycles you’re ready to break.
Letting Go, Self-Love, Compassion
If you’ve been doing something the same way for a while, now is a time to look for pathways that will lead to more joy. There are opportunities that exist for you right now, ones you can get excited about. It’s important that you take moments to pause this month and engage with what helps you feel calm and connected to yourself. If there are some feelings you’re keeping to yourself, that’s okay. Find a healthy outlet to release them. When you come from a place of self-love, it will impact how you show love to others.
Observe, Balance, Connect
Your inspiration this month is in the world around you. Emerge from introspective spaces to engage and nurture the connections that help you balance out your internal experiences. Sharing your heart and supporting others is where the magic happens. Your creative spark is there, but it still needs more grounding. Find something to focus on this month that both stimulates your intellect and engages your personal interest.
Reflect, Focus, Deepen
Are things going according to plan? This is a reminder to stay focused. Though you have ideas floating around, it’s important to stay trained on what will help you move forward toward your goals. If you’re feeling distracted, take time to get back in touch with your inner guidance. Pay attention to opportunities as they arise and ask yourself if they will help you get to where you want to go. Balance planning with dreaming, and spirituality with discipline. This will lead to feelings of fulfillment this month.
Potential, Inspiration, Inner Guidance
There is a lot of inspiration and potential working for you on an energetic level this month. Keep in mind that growth always comes with challenges. Take things one step at a time. Be open to your process, and make adjustments as needed. If you’ve been sitting on a decision, move away from what isn’t/hasn’t been working. When it comes to others opinions, only listen to what’s relevant and helpful to you. Although this is a good month for connecting and collaborating with others, it’s your own inner guidance that will continue to lead the way.
Honesty, Strength, Resolve
You have the strength to work through anything that comes your way. Slow down and settle into yourself. Remember your personal power. It’s always there for you. You are re-establishing yourself in some way this month. Work on activating your self-confidence and believe in yourself. Yes, confront your emotions with honesty. Also, take actions that support and consider what’s best for you and those around you.
Realization, Insight, Routine
You’ve reached a turning point. You’re willing to do the work necessary to realize your dreams. You don’t need fast results as much as you do consistent efforts that will pay off. Stick to what you know works for you. Though it’s great to surround yourself with people who have similar beliefs as you, also be open to learning more about where others are coming from. This month, look into your past, even your ancestry, for personal and spiritual insight.
Release, Nurture, Shine
You are capable of so much. Although, you tend to take on a little too much. What can you release to free up space in your life to enjoy the results of your hard work and efforts? It may be an emotional pattern within yourself or something externally that you feel emotionally attached to. Know that letting go will help you to achieve a greater flow and allow you to give more freely to yourself and others. Divest your energy from what isn’t serving you, so you can nurture and support what really does.
Connection, Gratitude, Ideas
Connect with friends, mentors, and community for insight and support. This month, seek balance between sharing with others and going inward to continue soul searching and refining your own ideas. Be visionary. What do you want long-term? Aquarius, this is your month. Enjoy it! Approach situations with graciousness, and express gratitude for all the things in your life that you really appreciate.
Passion, Prioritize, Trust
Your inspiration is here to guide you. Choose one thing to focus on at a time and work on getting that accomplished. To keep your inner fire and passion burning, seek balance between the external concentration that’s required of you and your own personal time to recharge. You don’t need others to tell you how to live your life right now, and you don’t need external approval to succeed. Trust that if you do things in your own way, you’ll find and create the path forward.
