Zodiac Check-In: Your Monthly Astro Update

Dive into the month ahead with practical star insights – your guide to navigating the cosmos this February.

Aries (21 Mar – 19 Apr): February and the Aquarius New Moon bring opportunities for you to reconnect and repair an old, important friendship which has been neglected in recent times. The day-to-day routines of home, health and work are highlighted, making this a fantastic time to create new, positive habits that will make your life easier, simpler, and healthier.

Taurus (20 Apr – 20 May): Your career and reputation are enhanced this month, and you may get the go-ahead for a promotion or alternatively permission to walk away from work – possibly perma­nently. Your romance, fun and pleasure zone is also being hit off, so love and feeling good are priorities. Some Taurus people will have a wish come true around children.

Gemini (21 May – 20 Jun): February and its New Moon are wonderful times for opening up your mind and life by trying something new, exotic, or foreign to you. Travel is highlighted, even if it is just for a weekend away. The Full Moon on the 24th is in your zone of home and family. A great time for being a domestic god/dess or to just enjoy your private sanctuary.

Cancer (21 Jun – 22 Jul): This month is fantastic for your finances, especially if you are in a committed relationship and share your money. You may even get a piece of someone else‘s good luck. Take every opportunity to get clear in your mind about anything which has been con­fusing or worrying – especially where you are heading on your life path long term.

Leo (23 Jul – 22 Aug): This month and New Moon will bring a sense of commit­ment and security to many relationships, while at the same time, partnerships which are not working could end. Your values and personal priorities are under the spotlight, when a situation arises where you have to either take a stand or take a side according to what you believe in.

Virgo (23 Aug – 22 Sep): Your health, finding new routines and changing habits are all highlighted this month – as is creating a balanced lifestyle. The Full Moon on the 24th is in your sign making this an important phase for you at a personal level – especially around your self-image and confidence. Feeling love and acceptance for yourself will help you heal and grow.

Libra (23 Sep – 22 Oct): Your intuition and psychic senses will be strengthened by the Full Moon on the 24th. You will be able to tap into your hidden feelings which will bring insight. A great month for romance and flirting. A new, lasting relationship could begin for some Librans. For others, a new hobby or sport will appeal especially if you haven’t tried it before.

Scorpio (23 Oct – 21 Nov): This is a time of major endings and new beginnings in your life and also for dreaming about a better future. You may find that you have grown out of what you used to want and now are free to go and find what really matters. A fantastic time for reaching out to old friends and for making new ones – especially if they have shared interests.

Sagittarius (22 Nov – 21 Dec): February and the New Moon on the 10th is a wonderful time for clearing your mind of junk and other people’s opinions and really drilling down into what makes you happy and stress free. Your career and public reputation are highlighted now, and you may receive some well-deserved praise and acknowledgement for your past efforts.

Capricorn (22 Dec – 19 Jan): You are likely to receive some positive financial news this month. Perhaps you will reach a security milestone or receive some money you didn’t expect. It is time to look beyond what is right in front of you and explore your potential. You may be surprised by what is possible after all – especially if it means you can be true to yourself.

Aquarius (20 Jan – 18 Feb): The New Moon combined with Pluto and three other planets in your sign will bring an intense and powerful month ahead. Try to be flexible and avoid power struggles with authorities. There could be some deep and meaningful talk about the important things you share with others – including money and resources, values, and intimacy.

Pisces (19 Feb – 20 Mar): This is a quiet month where your best approach is to retreat into your comfort zone and think through what you want next from your life. Inner wisdom and spiritual insight are your friends. The Full Moon on the 24th happens in your relationship zone, so you may feel very full of emotions and positive feelings for the people closest to you.

Possibly not,” she said. We beg to differ!
