As astonishingly quick time sometimes passes, January has got to be the one month during the year that literally flies by. The second we unpack our bags from our Christmas holidays and get back into our daily routine, and bam! it’s February!
Whether you’ve succeeded to embark onto a month of detox in the form of Dry January, or simply attempted, there’s always a new month to get new resolutions under way. We like to see February as the real start to a new year, when everything has been properly settled; work is going smoothly and you’re already mentally starting to plan your next holiday, preferably in the sun as you just simply could not spend one more day in this dreadful mix of wind, rain, snow and cold!
Last month was busy to say the least – a bunch of moons here and there left us pondering on life and what it could throw at us any minute. But this month is looking all too different and we for once look forward to turning a new page.
But before we divulge any more predictions, keep scrolling to find out what February has in store for you, the surprises you might encounter, and more!
January 20th – February 18th
Happy birthday month dear Aquarius! Now that the rush and thrill of a new year is behind us, it’s time to settle for your month and what lies ahead for you. Starting with a new moon on the 4th, you’ll have the chance to express your dreams and goals for the next months and think strategically. Some might seem a bit on the quirky side, but there’s something about hitting refresh during your birthday month that will give you the extra strength and energy to combat the weeks to come, including this dreadful cold! Watch out for Valentine’s Day – it might be known for celebrating couples and love, but don’t forget your other soulmates in your life, aka your friends – so why not be thankful and celebrate all?
February 19th – March 20th
February is a short month, which means that your birthday comes even sooner than you think. Use the time beforehand to finish any big projects you have coming up, or perhaps didn’t have time to finish in January. The new moon will be a help in getting you organized and focused on what’s ahead in the weeks to come. On the love front, look out for the snow moon supermoon on February 19th might shake up things in your marriage or relationship, so make sure not to get dazed and confused. Though moons can display weaknesses – it’s not a secret that everyone’s got them, so instead of fighting them, let’s embrace them together.
March 21st – April 19th
It’s looking like a sweet, sweet month for you, Aries! Between the new moon on the 4th encouraging you to go out, socialize and mingle, followed by Valentine’s Day, where your ruling planet Mars is on standby to send you positive vibes and luck. Towards the end of the month, expect to receive some sort of financial guidance as Mars spends the remainder of the week in your sign, which inevitably might give you the push to ask for that much-deserved raise or promotion. Bonus season is upon us, so seize the day (month) like no other!
April 20th – May 20th
Taurus, you’ve had such a great start to 2019 and we see no reason why that should stop now. Keep up with the hard work, the self-care and the eyes on the prize. Mars is in your sign until the end of the month, which will bring you some sweet loving and power through Valentine’s Day, and the Virgo snow moon on February 19th might bring some minor conflicts so make sure to keep your ears open, communicate and take care of any unprecedented situation before it escalates.
May 21st – June 20th
As with your fellow pals, the Virgo snow moon on the 19th is not looking to have a great impact on anyone so far. Take precautions, especially at home and keep your social activity on Valentine’s Day to a minimum – why not stay in with a good movie and home cooked food for once? On the bright side, the sun is in Pisces on the 18th which is prone to send you inspiration and energy both in the workplace and in your personal life so make sure to squeeze some time out of your agenda.
June 21st – July 22nd
A new year inevitably brings changes, especially in your mood. Though you haven’t truly been yourself in the past weeks, (thanks to the January lunar eclipse!) we’re fully convinced a new month will bring you the positivity and energy to refocus and settle on your short-term goals. Starting with Valentine’s Day, pick one or more people in your life and celebrate the love you have for them. If it means taking a trip, why not and if it means just staying in with your S.O. that’s cool too. Just make sure to give it your all and get back in the game, we’ve missed you!
July 23rd – August 22nd
It’s no surprise that you’re one to always question yourself and make sure you have all your ducks in a row. But sometimes you need room to breathe freely and overthinking about what others think takes away a lot of precious time and energy. Watch out for the new moon on February 4th to create a clean slate and free yourself off these thoughts. Speaking of thoughts, you’re never one to fully be alone so whoever you’re crushing on these days, make your feelings clear on Valentine’s Day with some sign of affection.
August 23rd – September 22nd
To start off, a few planets are in your sign assisting you in planning the months to come – from a push in communications to a scheduling tip and dreams and goals to plan along the way, use the next weeks to set the path for a successful 2019. V-Day is looking adventurous and there sure isn’t anything like a little getaway to bring back romance into your relationship. As with the others, and especially for you – look out for the Virgo snow moon on the 19th and hold your horses before you take any drastic decisions. Think tensions and trying to avoid any bomb exploding!
September 23rd – October 22nd
With surprisingly few things to warn you about and for you to watch out for – February is bound to be a blissful and harmonious month for your dear Libra. You’ve got your hands full between your professional and personal life, but perhaps the new moon on the 4th will spark up some attempt at finding that special someone. Don’t dive in too deep as Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and we recommend taking it slow. Watch out for the snow moon on the 19th which might lead up to emotional luggage being brought up.
October 23rd – November 21st
It’s looking to be an emotions-full month for you Scorpio – and we don’t mean emotional. Leading up to Valentine’s Day, we recommend tying up loose ends and making peace with whoever you might not be on the same note with. If all looks good by the middle of the month, why not invite a few friends over and celebrate love all together? As queen/king of hospitality, you know how to show everyone a good time. Lastly, once the sun settles into Pisces just before the snow moon, we expect you to pursue the dreams you’ve had for 2019 and enjoy what’s left of the month, to the full extent!
November 22nd – December 21st
You’ve started 2019 off the way everyone should: in full swing. You’re on a roll, and deep into your projects and goals you’ve set for yourself. Don’t let February stop you, and to the contrary, keep going. If you’ve been feeling less than creative, watch out for the Aquarius new moon to give you help in that department, and be extra prepared for the Virgo snow moon on the 19th which might introduce an unexpected guest into your life – whether that’s a new hire or a new crush, we’re sure you’ll overcome any obstacles life hands you!
December 22nd – January 19th
We get it, you like to get a head start into the new year, new tasks, projects, trips and so on. But it’s only February and it sure seems you might have taken on more than you think you can handle. Instead of accumulating stress, we want you to take February as the month for some love and self care. The new moon will add some stability in your finances, and Valentine’s Day is looking to be filled with celebrating YOU! The Virgo snow moon might brew up some debates with anything family-related, so make sure to stand on the sidelines for that one.
