    [dropcap size=big]V[/dropcap]alentine’s Day is just a shadow of February, a bit silly in that it occupies only one day and celebrates only one type of love (romantic) while excluding all the others. This month the zodiac celebrates all the love—between friends, families, even strangers. The New Moon in Aquarius (February 23rd) emphasizes social welfare and supporting your fellow Angelenos. The same constellation hosts a triple alignment (Sun-Mercury-Earth) on the 25th, that inspires solutions to nagging problems. The month ends with a heart-melter. When the Moon aligns with Venus in sappy Pisces (February 27th), the stars make love to the universe. And yes, I stole that last bit from Shakira.

    Aries (March 21 – April 20)
    Feeling social, Aries? Mercury is exalted (astro-speak for fired up) in your Friendship House on the 10th. Give thanks for your besties and buy a round. Three nights of lunar lunacy commence when Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn take turns aligning with the Moon in your House of Religion (February 18th through 20th). You are at a significant juncture in your human trip. Take stock, be kind, and go forward with gratitude. The New Moon on the 23rd lands in your Friendship House (again). Can you see everybody, even strangers, as your brothers and sisters? Venus adds encouragement, bringing love and joining the Moon your Karma House (February 27th). Reap the love you sow.

    Taurus (April 21 – May 21)
    Bulls are all about getting the job done, but hang back this month, Taurus and let others do the heavy lifting. February skies support thinking things through. Work smarter, not harder, on the 10th, when clever Mercury exalts your Career House. Expect strategic ideas in the workplace. A New Moon in the same house emphasizes clear thinking. Your ideas will tend toward altruism. The workplace atmosphere will improve for you personally when you put others before yourself.
