Monthly Horoscope – February 2020
Aries: It’s going to be a month of self-love for Aries in February 2020. On the 8th, Venus is coming into your sign, so if you’re looking for a new relationship or fixing the problems in your current one, the planet of love is on your side. It might have looked like “all work, no play” for a couple of months, and the full moon on the 9th will help you find a way out from the stressful routine that you’ve been dreaming of getting out. You can take advantage of the Mercury retrograde on the 17th by journaling your thoughts.
Taurus: Venus going into your 12th house will open doors to your past, especially in the romantic area. Since the 12th house is full of spirituality and positivity, expect only good things out of this astrological movement. Who knows, maybe some closure, or maybe a second chance to your old love. Another mind-clearing force will come from the full moon on the 9th, and to get the best out of it, you can declutter your environment and open space to good energy. You can use the powerful force of the Mercury retrograde on the 17th to complete a project you’d already begun.
Gemini: After the 8th, your chances of meeting new people that’ll rekindle your inner light will be so much higher. When you add the good vibe the full moon brings on the 9th, we can safely say that it’s going to be the month you’ll remember by meeting new people. You can avoid the bad energy coming from the Mercury retrograde by thinking twice while going on a new adventure, or signing a new contract even. But don’t worry, just a little extra awareness will be enough to pass this time without any harm.
Cancer: Thanks to Venus’s influence on your career house, you may get a bump in your finances or work after the 8th. And the full moon on the 9th will help even more to your financial and creative state. Another good news we have for Cancerians is that they can use the energy of the much disliked Mercury retrograde. The best thing to do between February 17 and March 10 while Mercury is in retrograde is to go with the flow and stop stressing about the downsides the retrograde and focus on the things you should finalize.
Leo: Venus entering your 8th house will open doors to finding new passions. We know that new ideas give Leos the joy of life, and this month, they will find another enthusiasm that’ll inspire them. The Mercury retrograde on the 17th will have an interestingly good influence on Leos. If you’ve been slacking off about your health, the retrograde will remind you to get back on track. You may start working out, eating healthy, or even start meditating during this retrograde.
Virgo: The ruler of Virgo, Mercury, is going into retrograde this month, and if you make the right moves, it can become very positive for you. The first event of the month comes from Venus on the 8th, and it may mean unexpected money for Virgos. Go, play that lottery! Let’s talk about the retrograde. The best thing for Virgos to do during the retro is to work on the unsolved problems with the past. The extra energy of Mercury will help you a lot to free yourself from the mess of the past.
Libra: You may find yourself thinking about your work and career this month. Of course, it’s always a good thing to let go of the things you don’t enjoy doing, but thinking twice before stepping into a new territory is essential. This month, focus on the things that make you feel good and slowly turn your direction towards them. Fast changes are never good for a Libra, but with a good foundation, you may reach perfection.
Scorpio: Before it goes into retrograde, Mercury will make a surprise move to your 5th house, which means more creative energy for Scorpios until the 17th. You’re deep thinkers and can evaluate this precious time to think about what gives you joy. They say don’t start a new thing during the retrograde, but for you Scorpios, this is going to be a good time to start a new project. Of course, we’re talking about a project that has a good foundation; just like you want.
Sagittarius: February will be a month you need to divide in two. First, we have Mars coming into your sign, giving you extra energy and willpower, so, until the retrograde on 17th, you’ll feel pretty great about yourself, and if you take action, a lot of good will come out of it. And the good thing is, after the 17th, you can sit back, relax, and watch the achievements you’ve gained with your Mars power. Our tip to Saggitareans is to connect with themselves and find out what they really love this month.
Capricorn: The most important thing to consider this month for Capricorns is the Mercury retrograde that’s going to begin on the 17th. If you’ve been working on something, it’s a great time to finish it during the retrograde, but about beginning a new project or a relationship, we recommend postponing those plans after March 10. Another tip for Sags is to bond with their families after the 8th since Venus will bring you extra power to open your feelings to your family and loved ones.
Aquarius: Aquarius is one of the few signs that don’t have to worry about the Mercury retrograde since it will enter your second house at the beginning of the month. After the 4th, you may get a bonus, or some money that you weren’t expecting, or some birthday gifts. It is also a good time to give yourself some presents this month. After the 9th, your chances of meeting somebody new are going higher, so get in the social scene and express yourself after the first week of February.
Pisces: This month, we have a plot twist for the Pisceans. The first half of the month looks like everything’s usual, but the second half will be full of energy, joy, and self-exploration. You will not even feel the negative effects of the Mercury retrograde since you’ll be focusing on yourself and the new paths you may take. And if you’re born in February, happy birthday! It’s going to be a great year.
