Bohemian Horoscopes: February 2020.
Aries (March 21-April 20)
Restless and rambunctious Rams are born to be wild and you’re keen to kick up your heels/hooves, especially during the fiery Full Moon on the 9th, and when Uranus trines Mars on the 21st. But February isn’t all about fun and frivolity, you’ll have to deal with plenty of extra responsibilities, particularly at work. Despite the frantic pace, it’s imperative to put aside some special me-time where you can meditate and contemplate, dream dreams and imagine schemes. Solitude is certainly soul food for you this month.
Taurus (April 21-May 21)
Calling all tentative Taureans and stubborn Bulls! With rebellious Uranus in your sign aspecting adventurous Mars which joins Jupiter in your travel zone, it’s time to break free from boring boundaries, escape from your pedestrian paddock and start exploring the world around you. The Jupiter/Neptune connection helps you dream big dreams, and then pursue them with passion and purpose. So your motto for the month is from Elizabeth Taylor, “There are so many doors to be opened, and I’m not afraid to look behind them.”
Gemini (May 22-June 21)
February 5th looks fabulous, when — courtesy of Uranus — you come up with a brilliant idea or do something daringly different. But expect problems involving your career or reputation when your ruler Mercury turns retrograde and shakes up your public profile zone from February 17 until March 10. Perhaps a job is delayed, a work project is stalled or someone is gossiping about you? It’s also not a suitable time to sign contracts, start a business, buy a phone or computer, launch a website or go on a big business trip.
Cancer (June 22-July 23)
Retrograde Mercury will slow down your aspirations, but that gives you more time to reflect on what it is you really want. So your motto for February is from writer Anaïs Nin, “Throw your dreams into space like a kite, and you do not know what it will bring back. A new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country.” On February 20-21, Jupiter and Neptune activate your partnership zone, so a relationship is set to improve in leaps and bounds. Singles, use creative visualization to help you find your soul mate.
Leo (July 24-August 23)
The fiery Full Moon falls in your sign on February 9. So it’s a wonderful time to meditate on what you want, and then do all you can to manifest your dreams and make them a reality. Then Neptune and Jupiter highlight your well-being and regeneration zones, so strive to be the fittest and healthiest Lion you can be. No lame excuses or empty promises. Get your body moving ASAP! Transformation is the name of the game, as you set off in a positive new direction with steely determination and plenty of Cat courage.
Virgo (August 24-September 23)
Virgos love their dependable daily routines, but this month Mercury (your ruling planet) shifts into retrograde mode. So prepare for a topsy-turvy kind of month, when routines will be rocked and relationships will be rolled. But don’t waste precious time complaining about disrupted schedules and worrying about what might happen next. Elizabeth Taylor has some practical advice for Virgos who find February frustrating, “Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.”
Libra (September 24-October 23)
Librans are the incurable romantics of the zodiac. You crave companionship, hate being on your own, and love to be in love. Being part of a twosome is your natural state. And this month Venus is visiting your romance zone on Valentine’s Day! So if you are attached, then pamper your partner with plenty of special treats. Unhappily single? Lasting love could develop from a business partnership, a close friendship or a passing acquaintance. Happily single? It’s time to bring a creative new person into your peer group.
Scorpio (October 24-November 22)
The Full Moon on the 9th fires up your public zone and sees you shining in the spotlight. Let’s hope you’re being noticed for all the right reasons. Jupiter and Neptune inspire you to join forces with other people, as you contribute your talents to a joint venture or worthy cause within your local community. Then satisfying connections and positive friendships will follow. But communicate carefully and tread gingerly with a child, teenager or friend when Mercury is retrograde from February 17 until March 10.
Sagittarius (November 23-December 21)
Prosperity planet Jupiter and inspiration planet Neptune fire up your finance zone in February, which will help you find creative ways to make money and boost cash flow. If you really love what you do, then inner and outer riches will eventually follow. But prepare for some frustrating domestic dramas and family fiascoes when Mercury reverses through your home zone from February 17 until March 10. Smart Sagittarians will avoid hosting or attending a family reunion during this period, when the fur could really fly.
Capricorn (December 22-January 20)
Tackle important jobs and make big decisions during the first two weeks of February. Mighty Mars moves into Capricorn on the 16th, where it joins Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto, then Mercury starts reversing through your communication zone on the 17th. So you’ll need to be bold and brave as you face challenges, deal with disruptions and cope with general chaos during the second half of February. Your mantra for the month is from writer Anaïs Nin, “Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.”
Aquarius (January 21-February 19)
Avant-garde Aquarius, you can run and hide and procrastinate, but you won’t feel good about yourself if you’re not being the real bohemian you. This month, the Sun, Mercury and Mars push you to be proactive about pursuing your dreams. Don’t let conventional family expectations or low self-esteem hold you back. Inspirational mantra for the moment is from writer Anaïs Nin, “I don’t want to become normal, average, standard… I want to develop even more original and more unconventional traits.”
Pisces (February 20-March 20)
Mercury starts reversing through your sign on February 17, but the confusing shenanigans are likely to start around the time of the fiery Full Moon on the 9th. Plenty of patience and a sense of perspective will see you through. Then lucky Jupiter trines Neptune on February 20-21. So make sure you utilize your creative talents, grab lucky opportunities, express your humanitarian side or soar into spiritual realms around this time. The New Moon in Pisces on the 23rd signals the start of a pivotal personal cycle.
