This not only feels hopeful but it’s about turning ideas and dreams into reality. This is what you do so well being one of the earth signs. Admittedly, sometimes you lose sight of the bigger picture and focus too much on the details, but that’s not the case right now.
Choose where you want to channel your passion and make it happen. This could be a stunning weekend for you if you make a clear commitment to love, inspiration or happiness. Last month, you were the one having doubts and this month it’s the turn of someone close to you. Don’t let this person hold you back but instead follow your heart.
If money has been an issue recently and this is what someone close to you was worried about, then use logic and rational explanation to dispel their fears. There’s a strong focus this month on the air sign Aquarius and this enables you to find practical solutions to a financial or emotional issue.
The Sun is in Aquarius until the 19th and is joined by Mercury, your ruling planet, on the 13th and Venus, the planet of relating, on the 17th. This highlights your work and routine, your lifestyle and your health. Once you focus on the basics of life and ensure that things are working well on a daily level, the rest can follow.

The period from the 3rd-6th is brilliant for putting new habits in place and sorting out your routine and the New Moon on the 8th is a perfect date to start something new related to your work and your health. Yet the best period for you is the 25th/26th when your planet Mercury is in action.
This month’s focus is on laying strong foundations for yourself and your family. It may not always feel that exciting but being a Virgo, you appreciate a routine that works well. Once you get that in place, then you can start to be thankful and grateful for life’s pleasures.
Things begin to hot up after the 19th, once the Sun enters Pisces and your opposite sign. This puts the spotlight on love and relationships and Pisces is one of the most romantic signs of the zodiac. The Full Moon which falls three days later on the 22nd is an important one for you because it cuts across the relationship axis of your chart.
The Moon in your sign of Virgo opposes the Sun in Pisces and this is perfect for making an important decision about a close relationship. Emotions are heightened during the Full Moon period but the bright light of the moon sheds light on your situation and brings clarity.
It’s a good time to trust your intuition and make a decision that links your head with your heart. in other words, balance a romantic outlook with more practical concerns. This is especially important because of the astrology coming your way at the end of February and into next month.
On the 28th, the Sun sits next to Neptune in the heavens. This is significant because this year is a leap year and traditionally the 29th of February is perfect to make a proposal. If you’re in love and happy in your relationship, this is perfect for you.
However, Neptune can cloud the issue and sometimes you view your life through rose coloured glasses. This is why it’s so important to use your practical common sense and decide whether a relationship is for you and whether you can trust someone close to you.
Be realistic when it comes to love and don’t let someone pull the wool over your eyes. If Jupiter in Virgo is teaching you anything this year, it’s that you deserve to be loved for who you are and that happiness comes from within and not seeking it through a third party.
Be true to you now, learn to love what you have and not what you yearn for and make time to be grateful and thankful in life. If you’re in love and happy and Neptune equals romance and you’re happily in love, then this is the icing on the cake.
