Your February Horoscope: Chiron, the Wounded Healer, Enters Aries

The Standard Spa, Miami Beach’s in-house astrologer, Lori Bell, did you a solid and laid out your month ahead. Thank her in person when you see her around the property and book an appointment to go deeper into your astrological chart (If you're not in Miami, she does readings via phone, too!). This month's biggest takeaways: big cosmic happening, Chiron, the wounded healer, enters Aires, the first time since 1976, will stay till 2027. Time to take action, bring forth that bold Aries energy within us. Mars shifts into Taurus; now is the time to complete the projects that started the 6 weeks. Slow, steady and focused.
Aries (Mar 21-Apr 19)

Aries, you've accomplished more in the past five weeks then most people pull off in six months. This boundless energy will enable you to continue to move boulders—at least for two more weeks. Don't worry; nothing will get in your way, and if it does, you'll plow right over it. And, yet, feats of strength will not deprive you of friendship and love. You will find out on February 4, what I mean. There is a New Moon in Aquarius, falling in your house of like-minded people, your tribe, gathered together awaiting to start something new. Luckily it is filled with diverse weirdos who will love you as you are, keep you plugged into what is the latest, hippest, and most out there. Go network, socialize, connect, and drink some tequila, you deserve a much-needed reward. It’s time to have some fun. Aries, it has been all about you for quite a while. Mars and Uranus have been dominant in your sign, now add Chiron into the celestial mix. On February 18, it will move into your sign and stay there until 2027. Chiron is the alchemist, the wounded healer, and where we find our spiritual guidance. Aries, you are the warrior, the courageous one, the initiator—you make things happen. You’re not one to wallow in self-pity. You are thick-skinned and indomitable; most of the time you don’t need others' approval. For the next eight years, all the signs need to cultivate and unleash their inner Aries. You, my friend, set the example. A tall order, this responsibility. Do you wish to show all of your noble qualities? Or should you showcase your selfish, egoist bullying self? I think not. I know you love a challenge; go for it. You’ve got eight years to reveal your true self. Mars, your savior, and CEO slides into Taurus on February 14. Take a pause. Mars is asking you to value your self-worth, manage your cash flow, and send out those invoices for all the hard work you’ve been doing since the first of the year. Happy February!! 

Taurus (Apr 20-May 20)

Taurus, you workhouse, baby work it!! February 4 is the yearly new moon in Aquarius, which triggers the activation of your career. Yes, I know it is celestial career counseling. With Aquarius ruling your career sector, you're naturally inclined to pursue your avenues of inspiration and innovation. The stars are commanding you to either choose a profession or master the one you already have. You're a brilliant weirdo at work: you just need the freedom to express it. Be on the cutting edge of whatever you pursue; don't leave anything on the cutting floor. The big news is this: The New Moon has your back with Jupiter the planet of luck supporting it. Taurus, be on your game! Better yet: make the game come to you! Go network, meet new people, reach out to your connections, socialize—no excuses. 2019 is the year to start planning, shifting, and making changes. It all cumulates in 2020. Yes, we know: you're stubborn, resistant and not willing to budge until you're good and ready. But I’ve got a secret. Come March; you’ll have no choice. Valentine’s Day, sexy Mars slips into your sign, giving you that added swagger, confidence, and earthy charm. You are assertive, driven, and magnetic. Do watch your temper, however, and try not to boss everyone around. As the Nike ad says, “Just do it!" 

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Your bestie Aquarius has her yearly New Moon on February 4. Think of it as a girls’ night out, or a sleepless slumber party. She is inviting you to open up your mind and expand your worldview. Don't disappoint or miss your appointment with your enhanced self. Aquarius is all about innovative ideas, mind-expanding experiences, humanity, and the flirtation with the unconventional. Gemini, curiosity is your mantra; you'll love this New Moon. You can fly off to Peru, meet a Shaman, and take ayahuasca. Stay local and attend a workshop, sign up for a class or watch documentaries about spiritually, travel or justice. Shift your worldview and learn something new. On Valentine’s Day, Mars your inner warrior slides into slow and steady Taurus. He will be hiding out in your 12th house for the next six weeks. Mars is where we get our drive; he is the driver of our inner competitor. Regrettably, he is not that accessible in the 12th, Mars in hiatus, so use this time to slow down, recharge, and work alone if you can. Set aside your ego and give it a rest. Maybe a digital detox? I dare you Gemini. It would be amazing if you could do what the other signs fear most-total disconnection! Afterward, you can post all about it on social media. Your Instagram page will look so cool-like a blank high definition slate. A big celestial event happens on February 18, when Chiron, moves into Aries. Chiron is an asteroid, that mends our wounds. Yeah, we all have’em. You, dear Gemini, are clever, witty, and always find humor in the midst of difficulty. You've got eight years to work through all the confusion about your identity. You're the sign of the twins--and they are not identical. Which one will you work on first? Good luck with that digital detox!

 

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Cancer, all roads lead to you. We are all in need of some loving, kindness, a hug, and a home-cooked meal. This past November, the cosmic guideposts, moved into Cancer and Capricorn. They represent the direction we need to go. The Cancer north node is the yellow brick. The key to happiness for the next 18 months is you dear Cancer. You've got a big responsibility, you're the Mother of the zodiac, you come by it naturally. If it feels too burdensome, go hang out with Capricorn, and then you will realize how much we need you! February 4th is the New Moon in Aquarius landing in your house of intimacy, money, and sex. Where Aquarius is in our charts is where we need to be inventive and express ourselves in our own weird and unique way. Cancer, you are full of surprises between the sheets! May I join you sometime? Sex it up, sort out your finances, take your intimate relationships to the next level. On Valentine’s Day, the planet Mars shifts into Taurus where he is determined, grounded and ready to work.  When he lands in your 11th house; your tribe, friends, and community—join a group, socialize, network, get involved in a political campaign; 2020 is around the corner. The big celestial event occurs on February 18, when Chiron, the wounded healers, helps mend our wounds, moves into dynamic Aries. Aries wants to take action and finally deal with issues of self-identity. It's a slow process, don't freak out yet. Promise? You are needed right now, Cancer. Please do take good care of yourself. 

Leo (July 23-Aug 22)

Leo, finally the eclipses are no longer about you! Since August 2016, the eclipses have been in Leo, and transformed your self-identity and partnerships with the focus on you, of course. You survived, maybe a relationship did not, your sense of self is intact. Now is the opportunity to show how much you have evolved and transformed. I know it is only for the better! The new moon on February 4, in Aquarius, focuses on your partnerships and committed relationships. My drama queen, drop the drama. Shower your partner with love. You are the most entertaining and loving sign of the zodiac. You have a huge heart; keep it open and spread that joy. Those of you who are single, go flirt away. You are so good at it; will you teach me? On Valentine’s Day, Mars, our inner competitor, energizes your career sector. Get to work, darling. You're focused, determined, and primed to get things done. Recognition is the reward for all that you do, it is your time Leo. The celestial happening of the month occurs on February 18, when Chiron, the wounded healer, alchemist, Shaman enters Aries. The last time this occurred was 1976 so many may have never experienced this energy. It is inspiring you to take action, own your stuff, and heal. You've got eight years to do it. No hurry. Cheers to love, Leo 

Virgo (Aug 23-Sep 22)

Virgo, self-care is a priority in your life. You secretly love the yearly New Moon in Aquarius highlighting your 6th house of health; the daily routine, and work. You're the consummate researcher always looking for ways to improve your health, organize your home and improve the mundane tasks of life. How many health, organizing or smart apps are on your cell phone? You can be an OCD geek in this area of your life. You're a touch of the hypochondriac willing to try the "most out there" health craze or the latest gadget. The New Moon, on February 4, is inviting you to indulge yourself with whatever innovation enhances your daily life. Do it. Buy it! Better yet, why don't you develop an app? Become the next Marie Kondo? I'd only trust a Virgo to organize my life. Come Valentine’s Day, the planet Mars moves into steady, calm Taurus; your BFF. He lands in your ninth house of travel, education, and spirituality. You're restless, googling every far-flung place to travel to, or class to take or Guru to meet. Whichever you choose, Virgo, let it enhance your life. You love to learn, fix things and people. Your highest aim is always to serve. All noble qualities, be mindful, not everyone wants to be fixed. The big celestial event of the month is on February 18 when Chiron moves into Aries for the next eight years. Chiron deals with our wounds and the power to heal them. It's time to take action, start with baby steps, please. I hope you do develop an app, I need all the help I can get.

It always comes back to relationships with you, Libra! Chiron will be there for eight years so you'll have plenty of time to learn how to balance your relationships; the co-dependent vs. dependent dialogue that you've had most of your adult life. Libra, can I have your month?

Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 21)

Scorpio, the yearly New Moon in Aquarius on February 4, lands in your 4th house of home, family, and ancestry. With Aquarius on the 4th, you've inherited some unique DNA. Whether it's one of your parents or grandparents; they are eccentric and weird. Thank goodness for that! If we all came from conventional families it would be so incredibly tragic. Go home, Scorpio. No matter if it's your childhood home or your inner sanctuary that you call home. You're private, you keep secrets, and you're slow to reveal yourself. That is part of your mystic. You relish having the home you create filled with a diverse group of individuals who inspire and intrigue you. Your door is always open to your friends, family, and all the weirdos you've befriended. This month, nest, throw a dinner party; invite your folks along with your varied cast of characters. It will feed your soul. Can I get an invite? Valentine’s Day, Mars, our inner warrior, moves into slow and steady Taurus. Mars will be in your 7th house of committed relationships; business and personal. Tension can arise with Mars here so watch your temper, pick your battles, and remember to breathe. Scorpio, compromise; don't hold a grudge. Please argue fair. Bringing up what your partner did five years ago isn't helpful. Just think of the wonderful make up sex you'll have afterward. February 18, Chiron, an asteroid, moves into Aries. Chiron deals with our wounds; he is the Shaman, the alchemist, who shows us how to heal. In Aries, it is time to take action and heal ourselves. You've got eight years, take it slow.

Aquarius, plant those seeds of intention, envision which direction you want to go. You've got the force behind you. Valentine’s Day, Mars our inner competitor, enters your 4th house of home and family. Taurus governs your 4th, so you can be surprisingly stubborn and inflexible at home. With Mars activating your home, use this energy to do house projects. Marie Kondo your closets and cabinets, paint the walls, find what sparks joy. Your energy is high which can create a lot of tension at home. Rather than argue, funnel that energy wisely.

Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20)

Pisces, February is a pivotal month, a cause for celebration. The month begins with a New Moon in Aquarius on February 4th. Aquarius is where we need to express ourselves in our own weird way. Pisces, you have Aquarius in our 12th house; you love this energy, it is the natural house of Pisces. It’s what is hidden, our subconscious, things we cannot articulate. It's the universal charger, where you get your juice. It can be a simple walk in the woods, to an ashram in India, wherever you feel that connected source, plugin. It is your lifeline Pisces. Escape in the best possible way this month, a weekend getaway or a few hours of silence. Do try meditation; one of the benefits is increased psychic abilities you already possess these powers, so awaken them! February 18, is a turning point for you. Chiron, the wounded healer, moves out of Pisces where he has been since 2011, bringing up your old hurts to be dealt with. Kinda of like a pulling a tooth without novocaine. Hallelujah, it is over, you are no longer the same person, you will no longer take things so personally.  How fabulous is that? Pop open that champagne and cheers to healing! On Valentine’s Day, the planet Mars, our inner warrior, enters Taurus—your BFF. Mars is the ever-ready battery. Coupled with steady Taurus, you're focused! He'll hang out in your third house for the next six weeks helping to keep your mind sharp with the mental energy to work longer than usual. Pisces, before you send those emails, double check, that you sent them to the correct person, please. Cheers to a Fabulous February!
