In case you were wondering, the concept of 13 zodiac signs rather than 12 is not new despite the sudden media attention. It’s always been part of the Eastern philosophy. Personally, I’m sticking with the traditional western approach to astrology. It works for me.
***Sun in Aquarius, moving into Pisces 2/20
***Full Moon in Leo 2/18
ARIES – March 21 to April 19: The Fairy Godfather of the Universe, Jupiter, has finally arrived in your sign for a year-long visit. If you haven’t already made it clear what you want as your gift from him, be sure you have verbalized it (writing it down is even better) by the full moon on the 18th. Sexy Suggestion: Forget Valentine’s Day this year, the 18th is the night for you to make a move on someone who may have only been a friend till now. For once, behaving like a ram will get you what you truly want…in and out of the bedroom.
TAURUS – April 20 to May 20: February is a stellar month for you to make career progress. If you haven’t already made a decision about where you want to be working or how you wish to be earning income by the end of 2011, do so immediately, AND plant some seeds in that direction, by the full moon. Sexy Suggestion: A grand romantic gesture on, or a few days before, Valentine’s Day will generate some much needed steam for both of you. But be aware, any promises you make will have to be carried out.
GEMINI – May 21 to June 20: Those of you in the creative arts or sales will have more support this month than they have had in a long time. Don’t let a past failure stop you from submitting an idea or going after that new client, though your chances of success will increase if you are trying to push something new. Sexy Suggestion: Odds are you haven’t been getting much action lately and this month probably isn’t going to change that. Even those with regular partners may have to resort to a non-physical hookup (like phone sex) to get off. Next month will be much juicier!
CANCER – June 21 to July 22: Money matters will be the main focus during the first half of February. There will be supportive energy to get your taxes done, apply for a refi or loan or negotiate a settlement. Then the moon in Cancer on Valentine’s Day will force your attention over to romance and your closest relationships. Many of you might be ending a long-standing relationship or committing to a new one. Sexy Suggestion: Get out of your safe little shell this month. Take charge, be bolder than you’ve ever been and give graphic orders about what you want your partner to do. Be the Dom for a change!
LEO – July 23 to August 22: The Full Moon is in your sign in the pre-dawn hours of the 18th and it’s bringing you a surprise. For most of you it will be positive but even for those who are shocked by what is about to happen, know that it is for the best in the long run. For all Leos, February is creating an urgency to be in the right relationships, personally, business-wise or both, so stay alert to signs that “the one” is at hand. Sexy Suggestion: This Valentine’s Day be sure there’s enough chocolate to decorate each other’s bodies for a real taste treat.
VIRGO – August 23 to September 22: Something will earn you a nice chunk of cash this month and it will be well deserved since you’ve really labored over it. Allow yourself a little time to celebrate its completion before diving into a new assignment. Sexy Suggestion: Get out of your own skin by pretending to be someone else. Role playing before and during sex can be surprisingly stimulating.
LIBRA – September 23 to October 22: Librans will finally get a break fromdrudgery and tough lessons this month. With Saturn in retrograde, its mission to shake you down and wake you up is on hold. It’s only temporary though so jump on that new idea, call or write that someone you’ve been hoping to connect with and, maybe most importantly, get out your mundane routine! Sexy Suggestion: A weekend away from everything and everyone except each other will set the stage for renewing a relationship stretched to its limits. The only agenda should be long hours in bed, rediscovering each other’s erogenous zones.
SCORPIO – October 23 to November 21: There’s a whole basket full of good stuff for Scorpions this month. Exciting career news will soon be delivered. Any needed home repairs or renovations will go well. Your social life will begin to blossom and romance is on its way by month’s end. If you are looking for love, your best luck will be found at a party, possibly one you host in your home. Sexy Suggestion: Strip poker, or any variation of a game that gets you naked slowly, would result in one of the hottest encounters you’ve ever experienced.
SAGITTARIUS – November 22 to December 21: Your natural fire is certainly being fanned by this month’s energy. The least effort on your part will bring the attention that you desire. Almost anything you initiate career-wise in the next few weeks will benefit you financially by the end of the year. Sexy Suggestion: A spontaneous sexual encounter, whether it’s your idea or not, is the answer to your current relationship quandary.
CAPRICORN – December 22 to January 19: Money is an issue for you this month. It looks like one or more big bills come in but also, there appears to be an increase in income. However, along with the increase may come additional, unwanted responsibilities. Be sure you get all the facts up front as something appears to be hidden. Venus, the planet of love and money will be in your sign all month, making you more attractive to others than you have felt in a long time. Sexy Suggestion: If you are single and don’t want to be, make sure your friends and coworkers are aware of that. Someone knows someone who’d be perfect for you.
AQUARIUS – January 20 to February 18: Dear Aquarius, the Sun, Mercury, Mars and Neptune are all in your corner for most of this month! Whatever resolutions you made last month are now being supported. Plus, at least one new door will be opening before the 20th. Be ready to run through it without looking back. Sexy Suggestion: What is your most secret sexual fantasy—a ménage, same sex, bondage, exhibitionism, fetish, or something else? Whatever it is, the weekend before Valentine’s Day will be an ideal time to test the waters and discover if it should remain a fantasy or begin a change in lifestyle.
PISCES – February 19 to March 20: Your turn to shine arrives when the Sun joins Uranus, already in Pisces, on the 20th, followed immediately after by Mercury and Mars. Your biggest birthday surprise may not arrive until March but you can still clear the decks and your thoughts to prepare for it. What is the surprise? The answer is another question—what is the biggest thing you have wished for lately? Sexy Suggestion: Since true love seems to be knocking at your door next month, keep yourself unfettered this month. Take care of your own needs rather than create an entanglement.
