February Horoscope for Scorpio
(October 23rd - November 21st)
If you haven’t decided what turns you on then this is the month to go within and listen to your heart. No more playing it safe; it’s time to evolve and grow. Relationships are romantic because Neptune is strong. Don’t sign any contracts without being focused.
Most Scorpios have no interest in following the crowd; instead they prefer to distinguish themselves from the masses. They know how to listen to their gut and trust it, and not pay attention to what others think. A Scorpio who follows his inner voice finds that it’s a great source of strength. To hear themselves, they must spend time alone, and most enjoy their solitude -- it’s the only way to keep the potpourri of opinions out of their thoughts so their own beliefs have enough room to be heard. With their minds uncluttered, it’s easy for them to know their position – and that is worth a pot of gold. Most people have no clue where they stand or what they want. Clarity of thought and goals makes success so much easier. Once you hear yourself, your next challenge is to take a risk and follow the path that’s presented to you. You may not have all the answers when you begin, but the universe rewards those who take a chance on what they feel is right.
The New Moon on the 15th puts the Sun, Moon and Mercury in the fourth house of the home. The home in astrology represents that sacred place within you as well as your actual home. Thus this is the month when listening to yourself is very important. February puts the Sun in the sign of Aquarius and this air sign rules individuality and its influence encourages us to reach for what makes us special. So what a perfect time to hone your own thoughts, and separate yourself from the pack. Ask yourself what do you really want to do or be and don’t let a lack of funds, opportunity or any practical thoughts interfere with pinpointing exactly what ignites your passion. Once you know this, then take the first step and the next one is always very clear. Life is a journey, not an easy ride. Don’t be afraid to have a challenging experience, to learn from a struggle and to celebrate a win or a reward. When you’re pursuing what you love, you’re happy with or without the result. So take the first challenge and identify what turns you on and makes life worthwhile. Once you have that nothing else much matters.
Jupiter in Scorpio is pushing you to open up and not over-protect yourself. When it’s time to grow you have to leave the comfort of your safe space and venture out into unchartered waters that always seem dangerous – and sometimes they are. The more you learn how to protect yourself: by speaking up, by aligning yourself with the right people, by listening to your inner antenna as to what is safe and what isn’t, the more confident you get and that confidence alone makes you less of a target to predators. Vultures usually look for innocent souls, not those who are wielding a sword. Let Jupiter help you open up your world and show you the path that’s waiting for you to conquer. Life without a few challenges is not living. Just because something is difficult doesn’t mean you’re not supposed to embrace it. How else do you think you get strong?
Pluto in square to Uranus, the ruler of your home, is also encouraging you to not play it too safe and stretch yourself. You may have to change your work schedule and others may be telling you what to do, don’t let that discourage you. We all have to do things we don’t like in order to get what we want – its part of the journey. Make the changes imposed upon you if what they’re offering is something you want. Once you reach the open road, you’ll be able to spread your wings and do things your way.
Relationships are good this month even if they’re a bit idealistic. With Venus, the ruler of your 7th house in conjunction with Neptune, your feet may not be on the ground. If you’re in a relationship, take a long weekend or book a vacation. It’s a shame to lose this romantic energy to your daily duties. The square to Mars will push you to take action and do something together – something physical or adventurous. If you can’t leave home, take up mountain climbing or sign up for the marathon. Whatever you decide to do will work as long as you both have to exert energy. If you’re single, and you enjoy being in love, don’t be surprised if an arrow hits your heart. I’m not sure whether or not it will last, that’s up to so many factors, but you will be in lust for most of the month. Just be careful this month when it comes to signing contracts, make sure someone with a critical eye looks them over. Other than that, have a good time.
