It's February, Leo, and you're in for an extremely romantic Valentine's Day month. But can you remember that it feels as good to give as it does to get? During December, the stars warned you about taking others for granted. On Sunday, February 4, messenger Mercury enters aloof Aquarius, and you find yourself so wrapped up in work or other concerns that you're staying away from your phone. While social media breaks can be wonderful for your mental health, don't totally disconnect from the world on this day. There's a decent chance that a friend is in need of moral support, and you want to be there for them when they call or text.
Each phase of the moon comes with various magical properties. New moons are times for setting intentions and new beginnings. You're thinking about a particular relationship (you know which one we're talking about, Leo) during the new moon in your 7th House of Partnership on Friday, February 9. You may even feel a little bit resentful around this time. Perhaps your dating partner hasn't asked you about Valentine's Day yet, or a best friend is making you jealous by posting pics with another friend. Before you allow yourself to wallow in jealousy, think back to your Mercurial assignment. Are you making an effort to hang out or plan Valentine's Day? The more love and attention that you give, Leo, the more that you receive.
By the way, you're totally allowed to break out the sequins again because Saturday, February 10, brings the Lunar New Year, which is also the Chinese New Year, kicking off the Year of the Dragon. Time is an illusion, and while New Year's resolutions can be toxic, remember that you're allowed to set goals for yourself all year round. You’re a Leo, you're ruled by the Sun, you were meant to live your dreams.
If you're dating, serious or casual, prepare for some insanely hot sex just in time for Valentine's Day as the passionate planet Mars moves into your 7th House of Partnership on Monday, February 12. While this transit is indeed red-hot for romance, mid-February is about spending time with any and all partners. Just a few days later, lover Venus joins Mars in your 7th House of Partnership on Friday, February 16. While we associate Venus with romance, the planet rules all forms of love. If you are partnered, let this transit remind you that you can't neglect your friendships. Such relationships form the foundation on which romantic love is built. People who blow off their friends as soon as they're happy in love are the worst. Just remember how jealous you felt earlier in the month seeing your bestie have fun with someone else. You must nurture those relationships — or you're not allowed to get jealous when they start leaning on other people.
You're feeling poetic when the sun moves into dreamy Pisces on Sunday, February 18. The next few weeks see you feeling emotional and creative. You're in the mood to write love poems and dive into your creative hobbies. And, after a lot of lecturing from the stars on giving love to other people, Pisces season highlights self-care, Leo. Break out your favorite loungewear and snacks, and binge-watch all the TV you want. Most people assume that you're an extrovert, but don't be surprised if you're craving alone time at the end of the month. As the communication planet Mercury joins the sun in Pisces on Thursday, February 22, you have no problem setting boundaries with others and letting them know you want to stay in. Don't worry; you've been nurturing your relationships all month long; no one is going to forget about you. You're especially interested in a cozy night of rest during the Virgo full moon on Saturday, February 24. While full moons are pretty, they can leave us feeling drained and anxious. So make sure you get plenty of sleep this weekend, and we'll see you in March.
