Welcome to February, Taurus. Be prepared: This month has the potential to be absolutely epic for your career or creative hobby. You’ll see even more success if you reach out to your chosen family for help and support. During January, you already enjoyed some attention. While, to others, it may look like it happened overnight, you know the truth. As a hard-working earth sign, your advancements are the result of long and devoted work.
Your loyal nature comes with one caveat regarding achievements. You sometimes need a little push to ask for what you want. The stars bless you with this gift when Mercury, the messenger of the gods, moves into your abundant 10th House of Social Status on Sunday, February 4. This is a time to shoot your shot. Of course, everyone’s personal situation is different, but this transit begs you to go ahead and pester the right people so your band can book a gig or schedule a meeting with your boss to ask for that well-deserved raise. Remember that the squeaky wheel gets the oil.
February has the potential to be an opulent month for you (and you’re a sign who appreciates nice things) but you have to put in the work. If you follow your above star assignment, you should begin to see the fruits of your labor around the new moon in Aquarius on Friday, February 9. Remember that each phase of the moon comes with different magical properties. New moons mark fresh starts. While miracles and gifts from the cosmos can happen, most often, the stars set up opportunities that only work if you follow through. The day after the Aquarius new moon, Saturday, February 10 brings the Lunar New Year, ushering in The Year of the Dragon. It’s a celebration that emphasizes the themes above and reminds you that you’re braver than you think.
Mars is a warrior planet that helps you tap into your assertive nature and get results. When the fighter planet moves into your 10th House of Social Status on Monday, February 12, this transit further continues your February theme, which, dear Taurus, is about getting ahead. This time of year is also Valentine’s Day. There is no doubt, regardless of your relationship status, that you will feel very loved during this period. However, your ruling planet, lover Venus, moves into aloof Aquarius right around the red-and-pink holiday on Friday, February 16. You’re so obsessed with the forward momentum you’re making in your career or creative life that you might honestly forget about Cupid this year. If you’re dating someone, just make sure to talk to them about your priorities so that they don’t feel neglected.
