Congratulations, you made it through January, the dead of winter.
Now, it's time to prepare yourself for the ghostly cold afterlife of winter, which is a lil' month we like to call February.
The good news is, a new month brings a new horoscope from yours truly, the crankiest astrologer on the planet.
But on the positive side, there's a lot of good news in here for many of you.
So read on, and have a lovely February. (And make sure to leave the house so things actually happen to you.)
This month is going to feel like a trip to Vegas. Why?
BECAUSE YOU'RE HERE TO WIN, and you're going to put everything on the line to do so, especially during the first three days of February.
During the 6th, 7th and 8th of the month, make sure to wake up and take stock of the fruits of your labor, which you'll already be able to see.
From mid-month through the 19th, you'll have to focus on follow-through (which is not your forte), so try to stick with your plans.
Toward the end of the month (the 24th), you'll be able to move on to new projects, which is an excellent and exciting career day.
This month is going to be about keeping a positive attitude, Taurus, as someone in your personal and business life will be rubbing you the wrong way on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of the month.
Instead of seeing them as an obnoxious asshound, try instead to think of them as an "interesting challenge."
By the 15th, you're ready to get out there and socialize, which will be an important ingredient to your overall wellbeing.
I'd strongly suggest finding something that allows you to connect with yourself this month, like a workout routine you won't get sick of or a meditation practice.
Go after anything that allows you to connect with yourself and stay grounded.
WELL, IF IT ISN'T GEMINI, THE ASTROLOGICAL FAVORITE OF THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY.
You are going to be proving yourself to be a genius this month, so get ready to dazzle everyone with your smarts as the month kicks off.
By the 8th, be sure to open up about what you really want. You've proven yourself to be an impressive figure, and you're likely to get whatever it is you're after.
Enjoy how smoothly everything goes this month, and on the 18th and 19th, take some time to lie back and relax.
Put your feet up because on the 24th, you'll be ready to take things to the next level either in a work relationship or at home.
Either way, you'll need your energy.
In the beginning of the month, Cancer, you're going to be tested in a way that stirs up your emotions.
Be sure to take note of how you're feeling, and let those feelings inform your intellect.
But overall, be sure to respond in a way that is measured and well-thought-out.
After the fact, it'll be good to revisit your feelings and assess where they are coming from.
By the 8th, you'll be ready to make some decisions about cutting out things in your life that are no longer serving you, and by the 13th, you'll be feeling empowered enough to try something new and risky — in a good way.
At the end of the month on the 24th, set aside some time to drop everything and do whatever makes you happiest. You won't regret it.
On the 1st, 2nd and 3rd, you and your ego may be at odds, so it's a good time to check in with yourself about what you really want.
Remember, your ego doesn't always know what's best for you.
The 5th is a good time to take a rain check on social engagements, and the 8th seems to be a good day to go learn something new.
On the 13th, you'll probably need some input from friends on an issue that is bothering you, so set some time aside to chat with them.
The end of the month looks like a real upswing, with the 16th and 17th being very lucky days, and the 22nd and 23rd being two days when you will gain clarity on some deep emotional issues.
Hold on to your panties, Virgo. You're so full of surprises in the beginning of the month that you'll be shocking yourself.
You'll be taking some new approaches to get what you want, and it's sure to be an exciting time.
On the 12th and 13th, go over your projects with that fantastic eye for detail that you have, but be sure to be gracious when bringing up the flaws you see in them.
On the 24th and 25th, you may be rushing to meet a deadline, but it'd be good to manage your expectations a little better.
Instead of panicking at the last minute, plan ahead and be patient.
Wow, get ready for the first three days of the month to be the most romantic and fun days you've seen in quite a while, Libra.
Try not to take them too seriously or get too wrapped up in "what it all means" because again, this is about fun, and the romance is a lovely benefit of it all.
By the 12th, 13th and 16th, you're going to be tapping into all your positive energy and hanging out with friends, and on the 20th and 21st, you'll be feeling like a professional flirt.
Head to the bar, bat those eyelashes and show off that famous Libra smile.
This month is going to be all about facing the music, Scorpio. The good news is, there's no better sign at tackling issues as squarely as you do.
Things are tough at home on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of the month, and there's going to be no way around it but "through."
If there's something you've been avoiding with your sweetie pie, get ready to hash it out.
Dealing with all these pent-up issues will make an all-consuming work problem come as a welcome relief around mid-month.
By the time the 21st and 22nd roll around, you'll feel the storm has started to settle, and you'll start enjoying yourself again.
As the month kicks off, you are shining brighter than the diamond that is Rihanna, and people are going to notice.
You could sell ice to an eskimo, so be sure to capitalize on the first three days of the month when your charm is at an all-time high and you're feeling confident.
On the 8th, you'll benefit by giving into that Sagittarius urge to get outside and go exploring. So, maybe bring that special friend you've been seeing along with you!
The 24th and 25th are shaping up to be great days for you, so look out for some good news and be sure to celebrate.
But watch for overspending, as Sagittarius is prone to do from time to time.
The first three days of the month are good for doing some long-term planning.
On the 8th, you'll have the opportunity to decide whether or not you should act on those plans now or later, which is a good thing because you'll have the courage of your convictions on your side.
Trust your gut.
On the 13th, stay away from flaky types who might distract you from the natural clarity you will feel about what you want and how to go about getting it.
On the 22nd and 23rd, you will benefit from practicing being in the moment with a mediation, a good, long run or a yoga class.
Just go after anything that allows you to forget about your big plans and lets you focus on the here and now.
You're going to be pretty amazed by the quality of your ideas on the 6th, 7th and 8th, Aquarius.
So, harness your visionary powers and get down to turning those ideas into a reality.
Don't waste time getting lost in your own head, as you're so apt to do. Make it happen.
You're also going to be in a very mental place on the 20th and 21st, so jot everything down, even if you don't know where your ideas are taking you.
By the 26th, you'll be ready to wrap up the month's ideas into one very pretty package, but it will take lots of self-discipline.
So, set aside your vices for a few days and buckle down to business. You can celebrate when it's over.
Pisces, on the 5th 6th and 7th, you'll be hit with some good news, with more good news and then a congratulatory pat on the back by some higher-ups.
Your life is going to be full of romance around the 9th, so make some time for you and your sweetie pie to snuggle up and love on each other.
You've been so focused on your career, but all this romance will inspire a wave of creativity that can only benefit your life at work as well.
On the 20th, you'll be ready to end an old partnership, but it's one you've been sick of for a while.
You'll also finally feel the clarity you've been waiting for to allow yourself to let go.
On the 24th, 25th and 26th, you'll get a hand from a very influential person, so be sure to express how grateful you are for their help.
