Your ability to charm and mend bridges is emphasized by the presence of Mars and Venus in Aries and adventure-filled getaways are also in the stellar spotlight.

Pisces: February 20-March 20
Prince Albert of Monaco
Take the time to catch up with yourself as the Sun highlights the most private and introspective angle of your chart until the 18th. Decisions you make will now set the stage for rewarding developments in the professional arena but be ready to take on more responsibility and rise to new challenges. Mars in your financial angle opposing tyrannical Pluto on the 22nd is a warning that you should simply step away if anyone attempts to coerce or control you.
February 16-28: Behind-the-scenes negotiations are in the spotlight near the 16th, and you shouldn't hesitate to speak frankly. With the Sun entering your sign on the 18th, your confidence is on the rise and the 21st is the moment to reach out to those whose support you need. With a solar eclipse happening in your sign on the 26th, surprising developments could set you on a new path.
Aries: March 21-April 20
King Mswati of Swaziland
You'll be unusually sparkly and hard to resist this month, and February seems to be presenting you with opportunities that open up your world. Get out and about and don't hesitate to speak your mind (which you tend to do anyway) because Uranus's long transit of your sign is all about doing and daring and Jupiter in Libra is now very much in your favor. The only glitch is a nasty aspect involving your ruler on the 22nd—but stick to your program and everything else will follow.
February 16-28: Speak up and step into the spotlight near the 16th. You'll be able to reach favorable agreements near the 21st so sidestep any power struggles that follow and make an effort to seal deals by the 23rd. Don't let the tricky solar eclipse of the 26th throw you off your stride. Aspects involving Uranus and Jupiter on the 27th accent lucky breaks.
Taurus: April 21-May 21
Private pleasures and public successes are accented by a favorable array of aspects this month. Support you've been hoping for appears to be forthcoming—particularly mid-month—but since you're not one to rest on your laurels, the extra effort you make at this time will not go unnoticed. Venus and Mars in the most hidden angle of your chart urge you to keep your secrets to yourself and keep others guessing and February concludes on a note of surprise endings.
February 16-28: Once the Sun enters Pisces on the 18th, be ready to do some vital networking. Aspects near the 21st point to heartening developments if you reach out and make your presence felt and you should make an effort to pin down details and secure commitments near the 23rd. The 26th seems to be an opportune moment to explore, experiment, and widen your social circles.
Gemini: May 22-June 21
Queen Jetsun Pema of Bhutan

February 16-28: The 16th is the day to follow through on a new plan and with the Sun entering your career angle on the 18th, your visibility is on the rise. Try to sidestep power struggles that crop up near the 22nd and let others fight it out, rather than getting dragged into the fray. With Uranus making some powerful aspects on the 27th, go ahead and be a rebel. You're on a winning streak.
Cancer: June 22-July 22
Maximilian I of Mexico
Those ideas that others casually toss out to you early this month will turn out to be more substantial and doable than you might imagine. Security is deeply important to Cancers, but don't be afraid to branch out in new directions or venture into the unknown. Whatever is going on at home, after the 6th, consistent effort and follow-through seem to be what's called for. And when Uranus aspects Jupiter at month's end, fickle fortune will be on your side.
February 16-28: With the Sun in your travel angle after the 18th, distant spots beckon and adventures await. Your plans and ideas are right on target near the 21st, but an explosive square between Pluto and Mars on the 22nd indicates that others may not be on the same page. Harmony will be swiftly restored, though, but do be prepared to be flexible and go with what works near the Solar eclipse of the 26th.
Leo: July 23-August 23
King Mohammed of Morocco
February is always a time when partnerships and your ability to include and appreciate others are crucial and you will have opportunities to firm up and deepen those relationships that count. Venus and Mars in the most adventuresome angle of your chart also emphasize travel and reignited passions. Try to wrap up loose ends around recently spun plans by the 6th and then follow through. February winds down on a volatile and perspective shifting note.
February 16-28: Advantageous agreements are in the spotlight near the 16th and once the Sun enters Pisces on the 18th, so are financial arrangements and collaborations. Partners seem to be agreeable and very much on your side on the 21st and close relationships appear to be moving into a phase when sensitive issues need to be brought out into the light of day, particularly near the 26th.
Virgo: August 24 -September 23
Ivan the Terrible
Your intuition appears to be right on target regarding work-related projects and new resources. You are a pragmatist, but don't hesitate to follow your hunches now and to branch out in new directions. Once your ruler, Mercury, enters the innovative sign of Aquarius on the 7th, it's time to step out of the box and to do and to dare. By the 18th, the Sun in Pisces begins to draw your attention to the importance of being present for those who really matter.
February 16-28: Pinning down details is what it's all about near the 16th and your penchant for precision will serve you well. Keep pursuing your aims near the 21st, but be ready to do some artful troubleshooting on the 22nd. With a solar eclipse happening in your partnership angle on the 26th, it's time to let go of past grievances and focus on what is important, essential and right.
Libra: September 24 - October 23
Because Jupiter in your sign turns tail on the 6th, it's time to take stock and focus on projects you've recently started rather than going any further afield. The Sun and Mercury in Aquarius are a stimulant to your innate sociability and to your creative talents. But it's Venus and Mars in fiery, passionate Aries that are the big news and they are bringing close connections into the stellar spotlight. Aspects on the 27th also accent the importance of being true to yourself.
February 16-28: Plans that formulate on the 14th should receive the affirmation you're hoping for in the near future and with the Sun entering Pisces on the 18th, your work life is about to become more consuming. A very charged aspect in your relationship angle on the 22nd indicates a clash of wills and whatever occurs near the 27th will clarify where exactly your best interests lie.
Scorpio: October 24-November 22
Home and hearth are the primary focus this month and developments near the 14th point to chances to stabilize your affairs and/or put down new roots. Work and creativity are brilliantly linked as Venus and Mars light up your chart—so don't hold back and let your imagination soar. February will become particularly festive once the Sun enters Pisces on the 18th and it's time to get out and about and connect as well as to entertain in style.
February 16-28: Your leadership qualities are being
Catherine of Aragon
Communicate, reach out, and above all, follow through this month. Others will be unusually responsive to what you have to offer and this is very much a time when your ideas and visions can blaze a new trail. Jupiter in Libra is expanding your horizons and the friendships and associations you forge can take you far. With Mars and Venus in the most social and romantic part of your chart, it's also time to get out and dance the night away.
February 16-28: Don't hesitate to share your creative visions on the 16th when the planets are working in your favor. With the Sun entering your domestic angle on the 18th, home and hearth exert a magical pull and you may be making some crucial lifestyle decisions before month's end. Keep all lines of communication open right now. Events on the 27th will reset your compass.
Capricorn: December 22-January 20
The Duchess of Cambridge
Because Jupiter will be changing directions in your career angle on the 6th, it's time to stop, look around, and consolidate your position. You're cautious by nature and your canny ability to gauge the way the wind is blowing is what enables you to be the achiever of the zodiac. With Venus and Mars in fiery Aries, February appears to be a time of heightened emotions and greater happiness now seems to be within your grasp. Getaways sparkle towards month's end.
February 16-28: Once the Sun enters the sign of Pisces on the 18th, your ability to communicate becomes increasingly emphasized and important—so don't clam up. What does look challenging is the nasty square between aggressive Mars and controlling Pluto on the 22nd and you won't do yourself any favors if you try to run the show—especially at home. Aspects on the 27th are equally intense.
