Horoscopes February 2011

  • Aquarius

    Jan 20—Feb 18

    While most signs don’t have much in the way of cosmic activity this month, you’re filled to the brim with astrological influence. Mercury conjuncts both Chiron and Neptune on the 26th—and he decides to do it all right under your nose. The result? Your mind will feel sharper and you’ll be more in tune with your body. You’re at your most creative, communicative and magnetic—so be sure to say what you feel (and avoid getting stuck to refrigerators).

  • Aries

    March 21—April 19

    When one door closes, another door opens—and for Aries, it’s typically because you’ve kicked the darn thing off it’s hinges. You’re a go-getter, but sometimes you’re so driven you end up running a new project into a ditch. Luckily Jupiter (the Dr. Phil of planets) is in your sign this month, helping you improve upon your faults. If you can get your aggression in check, you’ll be given A NEW CAAAAR. Oh, sorry. Oprah must have snuck in behind the doc.

  • Cancer

    June 21—July 22

    The cosmos have taken a liking to you. This month, there’s very little disruption in your astrological world, and the void-of-course moon that usually wreaks havoc in most signs spends a short amount of time in yours. Since it starts after 10pm and ends before 1am, you can probably sleep through it. So skip the evening news and hit the hay a little early. Someone did something mean, a celeb’s going to rehab and the new “it” food that you stocked up on is actually really bad for you. There, now you’re all caught up. Sweet dreams!

  • Capricorn

    Dec 22—Jan 19

    Though the new moon isn’t in your sign this month (it’s swimming over in Aquarius’ pond), you’ll feel its refreshing effects intensely on the 2nd and they’ll linger until the 17th, your luckiest day this month. But there’s a slight catch. See, when the new moon shines on you, it’s like walking into an astrological yoga studio: You’re sure to emerge a little more relaxed and flexible—if you put in effort. Banish negative thoughts, touch your toes and get ready for an amazing month.

  • Gemini

    May 21—June 20

    Some months are tougher on ‘scopes than others. But February? For Gems, it’s the astrological equivalent of marshmallows wrapped in cotton candy. Though it’s deliciously light, it can get quite sticky. The 20th to the 25th may get a bit erratic thanks to Mercury’s influence, so refrain from making life-altering decisions or large purchases during that period. Now is not the time to over-indulge, because even if you feel you really want/need/deserve something, you probably don’t. Sorry, there’s just no sugar-coating the truth.

  • Leo

    July 23—Aug 22

    The most recent lunar eclipse happened back in December, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t still influencing you. (And women typically feel the lunar cycle’s effects more strongly.) The months following this astrological event are a perfect time to quit a bad habit and let go of the negative things in your life. Having second thoughts about doing something or seeing someone lately? Thank your cosmic intuition—and then break the cycle.

  • Libra

    Sept 23—Oct 22

    In Libra’s world, relationships trump all. And for Saturn, commitment is key—so this combination of sign and planet is a pretty nice match. Saturn’s been in your sign since 2009, but its influence grows stronger on the 15th. And though you bring out the best in Saturn, Saturn also likes to give you little tests now and again. When a chink in a relationship is exposed on the 20th, don’t reach for the glue so fast. First, make sure it’s worth fixing.

  • Pices

    Feb 19—March 20

    Are you a fickle friend, Pisces? Lately, the answer’s a resounding yes—and everyone’s growing pretty tired of your light switch mentality. One minute you’re on, the next you’re off. And if you keep it up, your pals are going to replace you with a Clapper. Here’s your incentive to get your act together: The third week of the month is shaping up to be very lucky. But the cosmos will leave you in the dark if you can’t get your anger under control.

  • Sagittarius

    Nov 22—Dec 21

    It’s widely thought (well, in wide circles of Astrologers) that anyone born in or influenced by the fourth quarter moon has special clairvoyant powers and can predict more future outcomes than most. Since this slice of the lunar pie occurs in your sign on the 24th, you may soon develop hunches about people or situations. Follow your instincts. They’re about to lead you to some very interesting conclusions.

  • Scorpio

    Oct 23—Nov 21

    Are you getting top billing in your life? You certainly aren’t when it comes to Greek mythology. Most tales about Scorpio usually begin with, “First, we must start by discussing Orion/Apollo/Artemis...and then we’ll get to you.” Since you can’t change history, get busy dictating the present. If your life was suddenly projected onto a movie screen, now is the part where you outshine the lead and command the audience’s full attention.

  • Taurus

    April 20—May 20

    You probably don’t have a Mercury retro-grade calendar, but that’s OK, because I do. And on this one, there’s...absolutely nothing. That’s incredible! When Mercury’s otherwise occupied, there are no bad hair days, no late-and-then-you-spill-the-@$%^-coffee mornings and very few locked-the-keys-in-the-car afternoons. But of course, there’s a catch—and its name is April. Enjoy your drama-free days now, cause soon enough you’re going to need a baseball hat, a Tide pen and a AAA card.

  • Virgo

    Aug 23—Sept 22

    In Greek mythology, your sign is associated with the goddess of justice, Astraea. So it’s no surprise that you’re typically the peacemaker in your group of friends. When there’s a falling out in your circle of pals around the 16th, you need to refrain from throwing on a judge’s robe and attempting to restore order in the court. It’s not that you don’t look good in black. It’s just that you’ve been found guilty—of trying too hard to solve everyone else’s problems.
