Ups and Downs and Twists and Turns!
Taurus: February will be a month of calamity, and how you decide to approach it will determine if it is a month you look back at with joy, or one that you look back on and want to forget. You have planets in motion, and eclipses to challenge and inspire you.
Between February 3 and March 4, Venus will turn retrograde, and during this time you will have a romantic or creative endeavor surge, but it may not be out in the open. Take time to nurture a new love or relationship, or perhaps even a new creative idea that has been bouncing around in your head for some time. It’s time to look at your life from a different perspective, try thinking about solutions differently. A much more intense time like this will come in June, so start preparing now.
The rewards for helping a person close to you in need are great, so taking the time and energy to help out around this time will be of great benefit to your soul.
On February 6, Jupiter turns retrograde in Libra. This is not a major change, but until it turns direct again on June 9th, you may be generally more thoughtful in your spirituality and religious life, pondering the larger questions. Overall, it is a welcome facet of your personality in an otherwise up and down time!
Between February 7 and 25, Mercury travels through Aquarius. During this time you will have the opportunity to be a productivity machine. Take charge of things and let your self doubts fall to the wayside. New ideas will be clear and you will be more decisive than ever. Mercury will then move into Pisces on February 25 to March 13 and your productive drive will get back to normal, but now your creative side will take charge. Plan ahead and get ready for a transition from work horse to creative power.
February 10 is a lunar eclipse in Leo. This means that you are needed by someone in your “home” life, close family, or close friendship. This is a wonderful test for how you approach the world; can you be supportive, patient, and nurturing, or will you treat the situation with apathy! The rewards for helping a person close to you in need are great, so taking the time and energy to help out around this time will be of great benefit to your soul.
On February 26, here comes our friend the solar eclipse, this time in Pisces. This is an external type change in your life, this time not with a close family member or friend but rather with an opportunity with work or a new relationship. Be very aware on this day and make sure to take full advantage of the opportunity that comes, as they aren’t always as obvious as we would hope that they would be. Make sure that any choices you make on the 26, are the right ones.
Your career and your family life demand attention and changes are required in order to strike a balance between the two. These areas of your life may seem to be breaking down rather than getting better. Because of this, you might be longing for a life with fewer restrictions and responsibilities. Don’t stir up trouble or cause unpleasantness of any kind. If you try to make things better, you will succeed and much joy will come your way.
The month of February will have you working hard. Harmonious personal and professional relationships are most important to you at this time. You make an excellent first impression, use this to your advantage. By being cooperative, you will attract what you need. Try not to get distracted and you will do well.
As a Taurus sign, you have the determination to follow your dreams. Dreams can get you through even the worst days. They are what make your life worth living. Once you get on the path towards your goal, you will notice a distinct change in how you feel.
