HOROSCOPESDonna Taylor explores the heavens to find out what's in store for you in the coming months
Aquarius 21 Jan - 18 Feb Happy Birthday, Aquarius. “Can you remember who you were, before the world told you who you should be?” Danielle LaPorte asks an uncomfortable question but if answered with honesty could lead to some productive changes. Start by considering what you need to do to create a life that works and then tell key people in your life. Don’t be afraid of being assertive; it may be that you’ve suppressed quite a bit and now is the time to let your feelings be known. Pleasure is the order of the day, especially in March, as the planets invite you to indulge your senses and remember what it is that makes you delight in life.
Pisces 19 Feb - 20 Mar Happy Birthday, Pisces. “Intuition is a spiritual faculty and does not explain, but simply points the way.” Florence Scovel Shinn. Whilst your energy levels may not be at their best in February, your intuition certainly will be, so if you’re feeling a little lost or uncertain allow your feelings or gut reactions to direct you. By listening to your wise inner voice you will find yourself in pole position in March when a new moon in your sign is likely to bring new beginnings and greater motivation, enthusiasm and energy. Inspiration is your keyword, so whatever it is that inspires you, is probably what you’re meant to be doing, so go and do it!
Aries 21 Mar - 20 Apr “There are two questions that we have to ask ourselves. The first is ‘Where am I going?’ and the second is ‘Who will go with me?’” – Howard Thurman. The temptation in February may be to break free from your limitations or to square up to anyone or anything that stands in your way. Whilst it may be time to march to your own drumbeat you may get further if you join forces with others. The omens for your future are more auspicious than you might think, so put your best foot forward, gather your tribe and follow your passion.
Taurus 21 Apr - 21 May February is the calm before the storm, although with a new moon in the success area of your chart there’s still going to be a sense of forward movement; it’s just that when Uranus and Mars join forces in your sign in March it really will be all systems go. The danger is that you might overdo it in some way, so bear in mind Joseph Hall’s quote: “Moderation is the silken string running through the pearl chain of all virtues.” Whilst it’s important that you strive to be true to yourself it’s also important that what you do is motivated by the right reasons.
Gemini 22 May- 21 June The emphasis is on adventure and exploration, especially in February, so this is the month to push out of your comfort zone and try something new. By exploring new territory, whether physically - through travel, new places and people, or mentally via study, ideas and beliefs - you will shake off any residue of stagnancy and find yourself in a place of growing potential. March is the month to set sail for success, but be gentle with it. There is no need to rush or push. As Gerry Spence said: “To freely bloom – that is my definition of success.”
Cancer 22 June - 22 July “If you want to achieve greatness stop asking for permission.” – Anonymous. February is the time to make friends with your demons, particularly if they’re the sort that hold you back with their negative or fear mongering voices. There are so many reasons why we don’t do things but you’re in a position now to feel the fear and do it anyway. Expect changes to your life path during the late winter months if you’ve been feeling stuck or frustrated. And remember that the only authority that you have to answer to is you.
Leo 23 July - 23 Aug The new moon in early February brings the opportunity to start afresh in a key relationship and is the perfect time to clear the air. Keep in mind that this is a time for new beginnings in your relationships so leave behind anything which holds you back, and no matter what is going on in your life remember that: “Affection is responsible for ninetenths of whatever solid and durable happiness there is in our lives.” - C. S. Lewis. March brings changes to your career or direction in life and it may be a case of breaking with the past.
Virgo 24 Aug - 22 Sept “Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.” - Confucius. Winter is a good time to look at your life and consider how you can simplify it. In order to create better health and wellbeing for example, could you eat more simply, rise with the sun or bring more space to your days? Can you simplify your home by decluttering, or your working life by delegating? When your life runs more smoothly you’ll have more time for the things that really matter, such as your relationships, which is your key area for March.
Libra 23 Sep - 23 Oct “Foolishness sleeps soundly, while knowledge turns with each thinking hour, longing for the dawn of answers.” - Anthony Liccione. It’s hardly surprising that as our access to information increases our ability to sleep peacefully decreases. It seems our lives are too complicated and our heads too full of knowledge. Fortunately, February invites you to embrace simpler principles by being more heart-centred. Get rid of the complicated aspects of your life and sail into March feeling much more inspired.
Scorpio 24 Oct -22 Nov “We shape our dwellings, and afterwards our dwellings shape us.” - Winston Churchill. The new moon in your domestic zone in early February is good news for your home and family life and is an ideal time to welcome change or even a new beginning. In some ways, this is as much about starting a new chapter as making changes to your home, but either way, the common factor is about leaving the past behind. Time to get rid of the clutter so that you can enter March ready to listen to the whispers of your heart.
Sagittarius 23 Nov - 21 Dec “A man should look for what is, and not for what he thinks should be.” - Einstein. At some point in our lives we realise that our head and our heart are in conflict. If you find that logic says one thing but your heart says another, it might be wise to listen, particularly if it promises growth or a sense of adventure. Try not to over think things but let your inner wisdom guide you instead. March offers a gentle resting place for your soul and is the ideal time to snuggle up with your loved ones and to tend to your inner needs.
Capricorn 22 Dec - 20 Jan “In life, you don’t get what you deserve, you get what you negotiate.” - Chester L. Karass. February is an ideal time to ask for what you want, whether it’s a favour, a pay rise, or a better deal for yourself. It’s also favourable for all things monetary, making this the perfect month to turn over a new leaf in your financial affairs, and for generating more of what you need. However it’s also important to take pleasure in life and the message of these late winter months could be to slow down and smell the roses.
