Is Cupid aiming his arrow at you this month?
Welcome to YourTango's monthly love horoscope column from astrologer Ellen Whitehurst! Look up your astrological sign to see what kind of love and romance February is bringing your way. Please note: the predictions provided here follow Western astrological dates.
ARIES (March 21 to April 19)
How would you feel if I told you that you're going to have, both, a delightful and a deluxe Valentine's Day? Probably pretty darn great, so get ready to wear red, along with your heart on your sleeve! Why? Well, because generous and expansive Jupiter are aiming for a loving, beautiful trine with the emotional Moon within sensual Taurus (the sign that loves luxury and creature comforts, too).
You'll feel in the mood to get comfy and cozy and that sweet and lovely vibe will inevitably put a smile on your face. Expect those strong feelings on February 9 and then again on the 29th, buffeting this month with a tremendous mood.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20)
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20)
The Sun, Mercury, and Venus all partying in unpredictable Aquarius will activate your 9th House of Travel (and Higher Education) this month and so you can expect to hear from long-distance friends and far off dear ones. So, if you've been missing someone from your life that is far from you, then go ahead and reach out to them.
However, you should resist the crazy-strong temptation to just drop everything simply to tend to them. It's OK to live spontaneously, just as long as you do that while remaining practical. Remember, there's plenty of passion to go around.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22)
Valentine's Day will be one for the books thanks to a wonderful trine between your ruling planet, the Moon, and generous and expansive Jupiter. You know that Jupiter brings blessing and good feeling wherever and to whomever it visits — bet on that being you this month.
If you don't have a steady Valentine, and someone you know (may it be a sibling or neighbor) offers to introduce you to someone new, then definitely go for it! By the looks of it, you'll be their total package and they might just be your perfect partner, too.
Go ahead and let Cupid help you give it a shot, especially while Mars is in sexy Scorpio and your 5th House of True Love, Passion, and Romance (yep, all at once). This month is all about admirers and those who will shower you with attention. This potential partner will want to get to know you better — infinitely better.
LEO (July 23 to August 22)
As you are working side-by-side, especially around February 9, it may suddenly occur to you that one of your co-workers, colleagues, or even one of your higher ups is oh-so attractive. Take my word: The feeling is mutual! Don't believe me? No worries, you'll be able to tell almost immediately, so it's important that you don't let an age difference dissuade you from getting to know that special someone better.
It could also be that Mercury's retrograde last month brought someone back into your life and you can look for that reunion to revive your old feelings, especially around February 13 when your 7th House of Partners sends sparks flying through your life.
Also speaking of lighting up your life, Venus, the Goddess of Love will also be on duty February 16, so if you were once a "thing," you might now have a second shot at this relationship. Perhaps it's someone you work with who's head you're turning, but they'll surely be making all of the relationship energy you can plan on enjoying.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22)
You are due for the most wonderful Valentine's Day imagined and, trust me, this is the month to use your imagination to explore your partnering possibilities. You'll have generous and expansive Jupiter hooking up with the emotional Moon, both of which will be in earth signs. Meaning exactly what? Well, that you will quite literally be in your element.
With this exceptional timing, especially since Jupiter is in your sign and also in your 1st House of Personality and Appearance, you will inspire an admirer who allows you to relax, especially around February 3 — an amusing and entertaining time. And you must know that fireworks are lighting up your love life this month, too.
It's going to get hot, hot, oh so very hot!
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22)
This will be a quiet and peaceful month for you, Libra. In fact, you may find yourself spending some quality time on the home front. Now, as for Valentine's Day — usually your most favorite holiday of the year — you can anticipate quite an enjoyment and an easy trine between the emotional Moon in luxury loving Taurus and beneficent Jupiter making Cupid's special day a very special occasion.
One word will adequately describe this whole month — that word being "memorable." That will especially apply on the last day of the month, when lovely Venus forms an enthusiastic trine with serious Saturn. So, if you're attached, you'll get closer. And if you are single, you should look out for someone new — someone possibly older than yourself.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21)
With fiery and super passionate Mars activating your 1st House of Self (personality and appearance) all done up in your sign Scorpio — well, let's just say that this is a month that you'll remember forever.
Possibly because you hook up with someone who is ultra sensual and oozes that quality, almost as much (and as skillfully) as you do. You'll definitely feel lovely this month, particularly on February 18, when the Sun will shine on your 5th House of True Love, Passion, Romance, Fun and Joy. Evn better news — on February 28, you'll have double those feelings. And that's a big YAY for you.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21)
Passionate Mars will be taking up real estate in über sexy Scorpio and your 12th House of Privacy for the entire month. So if you're doing anything that you would like to keep under wraps or even keeping in the confidence of a friend, you will be able to keep these secrets and pull your private thoughts off.
As of the 5th of next month you are going to have to really keep it shut but this month — not so much. You will also have plenty of chances to get all sweet with your significant other especially around February 8th, 9th, or 10th.
It will be on those days that loving Venus is in Capricorn and getting together with Jupiter too. That means that it's time to please yourself and please your senses too. What better month to do so, that the month of roses and creamy, milk chocolates (laced with caramel).
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19)
Hot, fiery, and passionate Mars is spending the month in your 11th House of Friends and Groups, in addition to, Hopes, Wishes and Dreams. With Mars all done up in sexy and passionate Scorpio. This could mean that someone you've always placed in the friend zone may suddenly become very romantically attractive in your eyes.
Even if you've never talked about how much you admire and are attracted to one another, one of you might finally start dropping some hints before putting a plan for your love life together — and it will be exactly as you pictured it too. I would, if I were you, plan on batting your lashes around this special someone on February 6 and 7, two golden days to find your silver lining.
Go ahead and proceed with your master plan for delicious romance — it will be especially tasty on Valentine's Day.
AQUARIUS (January 22 to February 18)
Loving Venus, Goddess of All Things Love Related will slide into your sign on February 16, so you can move with 100 percent certainty that if you are not already seeing someone, Venus will send a qualified buffet of admirers your way. And since she will be in your sign you can count on every one of these potential partners being interesting and intriguing while raising your optimism quotient a great deal.
Keep your eyes peeled on February 6, when you might cross paths with someone delicious who adds to your buffet. Your chart says that if you take a fancy to someone then, that you will quickly move forward.
Oh, also, mark your calendar! The 29th is a lucky day for you, as Venus will enter an energetic sextile with Saturn, promising you a deluxe end to this oh-so exciting month.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20)
Hot, fiery, and oh-so-passionate Mars in ultra sexy Scorpio will hook up with Venus, Goddess of Love on February 7 — this trio is urging you to throw all caution to the wind and allow yourself the luxury of getting up close and personal with someone you are insanely attracted to. This month will be the perfect time to get to know this potential partner better and perhaps by the full moon on February 22 you two will be as one!
Your love life will receive a much needed resuscitation, with generous and expansive Jupiter in your 7th House of Partners — an even greater push to expand your romantic horizons. Take a trip, take a class, or just take a leap (or faith) and you might find exactly the person you've dreamed of.
