Coming right up, what the stars have in store for you this month!
Ah yes, we have made it through the first month of 2021! The largely dreadful year is bygone, and the first month of 2021 has been relatively more chill, right? February is going to be a busy and self-reflective month for all signs, one that will see numerous shifts and changes. So, without further ado, here’s your monthly dose of cosmic reality check!
Aries (March 21 – April 19):
Prepare for mixed messages coming in from all sides, dear Ram! It will initially be difficult for you to figure where to aim your frustrations versus your affections. You may wish to seek out human connection and cement your place within larger social circles (as safely as you can, of course) but the back-spinning Mercury might throw these efforts into peril! With everyone ultra-sensitive and less willing to hear reason, an offhand comment or an innocent mistake might land your reputation on the chopping block! It’s high time for you to self-reflect, consider where the greatest gaps lie, and make a plan to close them.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20):
We know you like things to be just as closely suited to your preferences as possible. And honestly, as long as you are able to set the pace yourself, you mostly manage to attain those personal standards! However, it is when you do not feel completely in control and when a force outside of yourself seems to dictate the pace for you, you struggle to feel comfortable with your conditions. And that is unfortunately where February has found you dear Taurus, particularly at work. So, you will have to swallow your own standards, exercise some of that anti-Taurean level of patience, and simply take things as they come!
Gemini (May 21 – June 20):
Where other signs may find their thoughts too loud or too chaotic to handle for the next few weeks, you may end up feeling like you have a cheat code in your back pocket. After all, your whizzbang sign is used to exercising your busy mind! Of course, this does not mean that you will be exempted from the hazards, but there are chances of you weathering them more savvily. Luckily for you, you are not afraid of digging into the nitty-gritty when the occasion calls for it. So dear Gem, put your natural curiosity to work and ask yourself the questions you know others will, once you put your work on display!
Cancer (June 21 – July 22):
Unfortunately, this month might leave you feeling downright drained, Cancer. If all you can do is just make it through this month somehow, that’s perfectly fine and we are proud of you! In fact, when taking refuge or seeking rest, you will likely feel the stillness you need to do the real work. It’s time for you to be aware of the foundation (literally and figuratively) on which you have built your life. From where do you source materials and where do they go once you acquire them? Who do you rely on when you feel lost, fragile, and vulnerable? In case you have clear, defined answers to these questions, this is a lovely time for you to say thanks and give back!
Leo (July 23 – August 22):
Relationships are rarely simple (considering they ever are, lol). And this month serves as a potent reminder of that dreaded complexity within your closest relationships, Leo. While on one hand you will be in the mood for love and intimacy, your efforts might get snagged on the other! For instance, a compliment might get misunderstood or that DM might land in the wrong inbox. Even though it’s the Valentine’s season, this is really not a great time for an LDR or new romance, dear Leo! Focus your attention on your long-term relationships (romantic or platonic) that you can nurture IRL instead.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22):
Time for you to already one to second-guess even your most meticulous plans, dear Virgo, for this month might end up chipping away at your confidence, self-care, and self-maintenance. Ask yourself whether you truly are on the right track, resist the urge to muse on mistakes or slip-ups you assume, and just do not beat yourself up for taking breaks! Pausing in this way is rare and somewhat challenging for you Virgo, but doing so will definitely help restore some of that energy before you return to the grind.
Libra (September 23 – October 22):
Dear Libra, February will feel warm and rosy to you despite the slight winter chill. You might feel tempted to shake off any tasks or responsibilities that may not give you pleasure, but we all know that is hardly realistic, right? Instead, just ask yourself where it makes sense to direct all your carefree energy, what parts of your life may benefit from this little leeway, this little bit of wonder, and channelize it there. Take on something creative to move your dull weekends forward, brainstorm at work, challenge your s/o, roommate, friend; anyone to a new game!
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21):
Normally, this is the time of the year when you reaffirm and celebrate your home for yourself. However, this time, your concept of comfort, familiarity, and safety might feel more challenged. But remember that you are a water sign, Scorpio! Just go with your gut feeling when the doubts get too loud and seize the opportunity to look at it with a new perspective. While viewing your situation from a different angle can definitely feel jarring, it might just help you feel those same feelings of assurance and being on the right track in its own ways!
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21):
You might feel like something has gone wrong with your communication skills, dear Centaur. Your brain may feel clouded, your best-laid plans frozen, and confusion raining down on any efforts that you may make at communicating! Your life might feel a little too stable, almost at a standstill, which will probably irk the fire sign that you are. So, the best strategy for you will be to move at half your normal pace, be patient, not take anything for granted, and do your best to accommodate and adapt to sudden changes! As they say, resisting changes is pretty much futile, however hard you try.
Capricorn (December 22 to January 19):
This month, you cannot help but feel a strong pull toward the material world. Don’t worry, this does not mean that you wish to live extravagantly, but that you like to attend to your own physical and practical needs first; which is not problematic! In all honesty, the fact that you prioritize stability as much as you do might make this month particularly trying for you. Your savings will not yeet out of the window, but the fear that they might will overwhelm you. But do not let these anxieties make way for any rash decisions, dear Capri! Continue with your pre-decided plans and stick with those previously-reliable ways.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18):
High time you open your heart up to yourself, Aquarius! You have already been enjoying the warm, reaffirming energy but your sense of self might set aflame. You may have spent January feeling frustrated with how you express affection or struggling to show yourself the kind of self-care you need and deserve. However, you might just shed that murky mindset this month and realize that you can be your best partner, as long as you nurture the relationship within! Rest your body, nurture your mind, and let your emotions breathe. Time for that long-pending self-love and care!
Pisces (February 19 – March 20):
The month will start quietly for you as February almost always does, dear Pisces. Although, you might spend this month in a state of soft reflection this year. Your focus will keep drifting to and fro the year that has just passed and the time ahead, with that existential dread rising to newer levels! There may be some grand, overwhelming questions weighing on your noggin’ that may require long periods of solitude to think about, and the kind of privacy needed might be a little difficult to come by right away. But don’t feel like you HAVE to give your time to anyone who asks for it; it is perfectly alright to be selective with your attention or to simply take space for yourself!
