What's your sign?
Welcome to YourTango's new monthly love horoscope column from astrologer Ellen Whitehurst! Look up your sign to see what the month of February has in store for you in the romance department.
Aries (March 21 to April 20): The planets are promising you a very happy and passionate Valentine's Day this year. Romance is in the air and on the agenda so be sure that your couture choices involve wearing your heart on your sleeve. Your love life is bound to be hot and heavy and you need to take this time to tell that someone special what you want, because, now, you're going to get exactly that. Bottom line: No one can resist you this month, not even Cupid.
Taurus (April 21 to May 21): Saturn, that restrictive planet of lessons and limitations, has been active and on duty in your 7th House of Partners for almost a full two years now, so I wouldn't be surprised to hear that you've been either traveling solo or carrying to weight of the relationship with your significant other. This month however you get a reprieve and find ways to get out from under. About time, too.
Gemini (May 22 to June 21): You have a ton of planets in your 9th House of Travel this month so it just might be that not only will love is in the air but you might be as well. Or it could be that you are motivated and inspired to hang out with and possibly even happily hook up with someone you haven't seen or heard from in quite a while. Guess what? They are going to be just as happy to hear from, hang out and possibly even hook up with you.
Cancer (June 22 to July 22): This will be a highly emotional Valentine's Day this year for you, since the moon will be full and your heart will be too. The even better news for you is that a beautiful and easy trine between the sizzling Sun and impulsive, aggressive Mars could potentially make this a far more passionate and sexy month too. Dress to impress but rest assured you probably won't stay that way for very long.
Leo (July 23 to August 22): If you're not firmly ensconced in a true romance by mid February, than it might because the planets have another plan for you. They want you to take a look back to your past and see if you passed over anyone who deserves a second shot at being the love of your life. If you're already involved then it could be that you finally get rid of a niggling old pattern in your relationship once and for all.
Virgo (August 23 to September 22): It just might be love at first sight this for you this month so go and find those rose colored glasses and put them on now! The good news is that this attraction could be "the one" but it might not happen until the end of the month, and loving and flirty Venus shines all over your love life. Look to the 23rd or 24th for Cupid to finally empty out his quiver and shoot you straight in the heart. If you are already in an existing relationship, this will be a positively passionate month for you too.
Libra (September 23 to October 22): Ooooh la Libra, this is going to be the best Valentine's Day you've had in a long, long time. That's because Mercury the Messenger is going to back into your 5th House of True Love, Pleasure, Creativity, Kids and Fun on February 12th where it will stay until the last day of the month. That means tons of opportunities to spend time with special and significant others as well as dear friends and loved ones too. This is as good as it gets.
Scorpio (October 23 to November 22): You've had Saturn, the planet that teaches life long lessons, sitting in your sign for the last two years making you the responsible one – the one that everyone goes to who can make it all better. But this month you're going to be ready to break free and have a little fun. Good thing that the planets have that exact same thing in store for you. This is especially true on February 11th and February 19th. Go ahead and have fun. The planets are giving you permission. Now you just have to do the same for yourself.
Sagittarius (November 23 to December 21): It could be that someone you've been seeing on the down low could be making waves in your love life mid-month. If you are not already in too deep you may want to spend some time reconsidering any longer term commitment. If you're already engaged in an existing relationship, then a beautiful Venus-Saturn sextile at the end of the month might move things to the next level.
Capricorn (December 22 to January 20): Standing slow clap. You have Venus, the goddess of Love and Good Hair Days sitting in your home sign and 1st House of Appearance and Personality too. This planet promises to make you an admirer-magnet while also causing you to be highly attractive to almost everyone around. With expansive and joyful Jupiter also active in your 7th House of Relationships you will be enjoying a banquet of romantic options and opportunities this month. Don't worry though; there will be planetary assistance at the end of the month that will help you to narrow the list. Until then, gorge yourself. There aren't any calories attached!
Aquarius (January 21 to February 19): Look, I know that Valentine's Day hasn't traditionally been your favorite holiday, but this year, the beautiful Full Moon that rises on that same night will fill the sky and your heart as well. It's a super sentimental Full Moon that partners with passionate Mars to form a sensational trine in your sign! What does that all mean? It will be a love-ly night and an even more love-ly month. And I'll tell you this too: there won't be any point in resisting. Love is not only in the sky, it's in the air as well.
Pisces (February 20 to March 20): An affair to remember might be more than the name of an old timey rom com, since it could also describe the energies that this February holds for you. A Full Moon that rises on Valentine's Day, along with a beautiful trine between the sizzling Sun and passionate Mars will spell romance for you with a capital 'R'. Stars are in the skies, stars are in your eyes and a big, giant smile will be on your face. Or should I say will be on both of your faces?
