February 2016 Horoscopes

February 2016 Horoscopes

Capricorn 12/22–1/19

The percussive sounds of winter can guide you home if you can silence your ego to hear the messages trying to penetrate your heart. Your sense of self is maturing and always growing–so you must learn to let the past go. Never forget where you once were, but it is more important to focus on the here and now. Mercury enters Aquarius on Saturday February 13th, and in the next seven days, the songs of light will take your heart on a glorious adventure, listen to your feelings.

Aquarius 1/20–2/18

February is a tenacious month that syncs with your soul, dear Aquarius. The New Moon is in your sign on February 8th–this marks a fine day to get down and dirty with all things radical and raw. Free yourself of the shackles of the past, to embrace the divine nature of the present. Balance is vital, keep your excess in check. Communications will start clearing up around February 13th when the Messenger God, goes direct. It is important to share the knowledge gained, with the tribe that shares your vibe.

Pisces 2/19–3/20

The universe is calling on you to become the best version of yourself in 2016. The key to understanding your Neptunian nature is to embrace your shadow and to master the delusional illusion of the smoke and mirrors. Everything you see is a reflection of self, so if you are stuck in the muck, give thanks to all that was–and have faith in what will be. Like the lotus to the surface light, bloom beautiful, brilliant, and bright.

Aries 3/21–4/19

When water hits fire it is either lost to the liquid element or its fierce force becomes a candescent sea of flames–whichever happens is up to you. The choice is in the wisdom not the knowledge. Your sign has been having a lot of realizations lately, and it is about time to reflect upon all the enlightenment bestowed upon thee. Jot it down in a book, in your nook, maybe take a look at the reading rainbow. Some powerful days for you in the coming month are the: 13th, 16th, and 22nd.

Taurus 4/20—5/20

You are a secure sign known for your stability and stubbornness. It is the balance of both of these qualities that make you quite magnetic. The tension in the solar system that occurred in January will be much more tamed in the quiet winter months of February. The peaceful and patient hibernal qualities will make sweet tea tastier, and if you allow it–the vibrance of the sun will create soothing sensibility for the soul. Happiness resides in the awareness of choice, and choosing is everywhere. The hardest things sometimes need to be let go–to the recirculated process of life’s orbit.

Gemini 5/21–6/21

Ah, yes–Gemini. You’re quite the quick-witted firecracker that is known to have a tongue as sharp as your sally. Mercury was retrograde for almost the entirety of January, so if it felt like a cat had your tongue–it probably did. There are a few options to bounce back from such a hiatus: A.  Reflect upon the wisdom, load it into your canon, and blast your way into February. B. Don’t let your cat in your mouth, that’s gross–and unbecoming.

Cancer 6/22–7/22

You are sensitive and perceptive to your surroundings, which makes other signs crawl to your crabby existential nature. Your exoskeleton is tough and rigid but once people can crack underneath–the are likely to learn quite quickly that you taste best with butter. If you have any carnivorous friends with a voracious appetite, I’d learn to set some boundaries real quick. If your name is Richard Parker and you are on a boat–get off of said boat, immediately. IMMEDIATELY!

Leo 7/23–8/22

“Roar!”, said the Lion. This exclamation can have multiple meanings depending on context. Since this is the the month of love, you should groom your mane and sharpen your brain. Do not however pair any body parts with fava beans and a nice Chianti. If you do, just remember to put the lotion in the basket or you are going to get the hose again. If you don’t quite understand this horoscope–I would suggest to wear your hair up in a ponytail (or man-bun)–it will act like a net to all things that fly over your head. If you understand, “You go Glen Coco!”

Virgo 8/23–9/22

Since you are methodical and meticulous it is best to plan to be spontaneous this month, a great date is the 22nd.  Not only will this spice up your saucy little dish, but it will add some flavor to your flav. A great plate of food incorporates and balances all the flavor profiles such as: salty, sweet, sour, bitter, and umami. In short, umami is like the molecular change of chemicals, to create a whole new flavor baby. It’s like when savory and yummy love each other very much, then move on to make a miraculous mess. Nine months later, boom–a culinary religion is born.

Libra 9/23–10/22

Your ruling plant is Venus and so a powerful day for you is going to be on February 16th, when Venus enters Aquarius. Matter of fact, you might as well celebrate from the 13th until the 16th. If your communications have been out of wack–then you can thank Mercury, or your editor. Don’t actually thank them though, clear and honest communications will ensure that any dirty laundry that was left on the floor of passive aggressiveness in January will be picked up and put in the wash on hot.

Scorpio 10/23–11/21

Mars entered your sign on January 3rd, and will remain there for about 13 more weeks. This type of energy makes you both empowered and enraged, dynamic and unyielding. Learn to channel the negatives into positives and the world is your oyster. If you don’t like oysters–then you might love Pearls, Before Swine. The 1990’s were a very misunderstood era full of weird fashion, and pogs. To quote one of the great weirdo’s of that era, Mr. Montgomery, “Life’s a dance you learn as you go, sometimes you lead, sometimes you follow, don’t worry about what you don’t know, life’s a dance you learn as you go.”

Sagittarius 11/22–12/21

Your ruling planet, Jupiter–has been retrograde in Virgo since January 5th, and goes direct on May 9th. During this time it is essential to focus on growth and retrospect. Life is a symphony and at times the crescendo couldn’t be more beautiful and exhibit the consonance of the spiritual realm. Right now you may be experiencing the music getting softer, a diminuendo, allowing your mind to become louder. Just remember, if we are who we think we are, who is listening? Master your awareness and make the most out of this transit, or if you’d like more humidity–make the moist. AHHhhh!
