Time for Action
This Aquarius season is a positive month for new opportunities.
February will be a more action-oriented month for making decisions! We start the month with no planets retrograde, so this is the best time to put your New Year’s resolutions into play. This should be a more positive time of opportunity for the cardinal signs of Aries, Libra, Cancer, and Capricorn. The fixed signs—Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius—are breaking with the past and looking for something that lights up their passions. The mutable signs of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Gemini are restless and all too ready to act on their agendas.
Good days this month are February 6, 8, 17, and 22. Days with more tension are February 3, 4, 10, 19, and 21. The Full Moon on the 5th opens our hearts to share our love with others, while the New Moon on the 20th takes us on a spiritual journey.
