Your Monthly Horoscopes: February 2019


The big news in February is Chiron's move into Aries at the end of the month.

Chiron, known as the "wounded healer" in astrology, signals how we integrate ourselves on this Earthly realm. Chiron tells us that, yes, being human is hard, but now let's see why it's hard and how you can integrate it. Chiron moving into Aries is the awakening of how we can see the things we have been in denial about and how we as individuals can project and insert our energies that allows for the adjustment of the changes happening in the world. In other words: life is damn hard sometimes, but we need to see it head on before we can move on!

Mars has been traveling through your 8th house of shared resources and other people's money…and taxes.

With Mars traveling through this house last month, there may have been conflicts or disputes over finances. But when Mars conjoins Uranus, the planet of surprise, there may be a final "death blow" or explosion when it comes to your finances. This month, as Mars leaves the 8th house and opens the door into the 10th house, your beliefs and ideas surrounding higher education and religion will come into focus. Mars doesn't do anything gently though! He is here to shake things up quickly and dramatically. So, when Mars conjoins Uranus on his way out of the 8th house and into the 9th, whatever your focus is on, in matters of your financial security, will have ripple effects on how you see the world and your beliefs as it goes into your 10th house.

Mercury is traveling through your 7th house of relationships and in the sign of Pisces during February and conjoining with Neptune, which has been stationed here for some time. Mercury is the barometer on everything about communication. Within Pisces, and in the house of relationships, you can be sure that there will be a healthy dose of wanting to get very close with your partner and have dreams and fantasies of all the potential possibilities of the future. But a word of caution here as Mercury in Pisces also indicates a time of a veil being put on the area where it is. And in this instance, it's with relationships. While you might feel warm and fuzzy and have poetry on your lips, Mercury and Neptune together can work against you in not allowing you to see the truth of matters.

And it's that commitment to being unapologetic in telling her truth that draws others to her like the light that she is.

As the saying goes, there is nothing new underneath the sun. So it comes as no surprise that something as groundbreaking as the graphic eyeliner look trend from a couple of years ago is making its rounds again as a must-try beauty trend for the fall season. Saying goodbye to the traditional thick-wit-it non-floating winged liner and hello to the new wave of if-it's-up-then-it's-up-then-it's-stuck eye makeup looks is the ultimate fall beauty move. It's the floating crease for us.

Reading is by far one of the easiest ways to press pause and escape. Some books are page-turners, keeping you on the edge of your seat with each and every thrill. Other books are filled to the brim with intrigue. Other books are filled with so much heat between their pages, it's a wonder how erotica can almost feel as tantalizing as the real thing. Above all, we can read books for knowledge. It was author Stephen King who said, "Books are a uniquely portable magic." We learn, we love, we fantasize, we feel, and we heal from these portals of hundreds of pages offering food for thought. How could books not be magic?

A couple of years ago, I had significant breakthrough in so many areas of my life. At first, it felt overwhelming to process so much guilt, shame, blame, resentment, and anger. There was so much digging I had to do to understand my journey — let alone accept areas in my life that I felt deprived of and to see the lessons in it regardless. It was a rude awakening to see all the things I was carrying for years emotionally and mentally, and I never thought it was necessary to pause and find tools to work through a lot of my issues. However, this transformative experience made me hungry for healing.

I've got quite a few male friends. Also, because of what I do for a living, I have many male clients too. While there are a billion-and-one reasons why I'm actually grateful to be able to say this, probably my top favorite one is that I get to hear a lot of men's innermost thoughts — things that sometimes they are hesitant to say because they're not sure how we'll take it and/or things they've never really felt comfortable being very open about and/or — and yes, this happens — things they never get asked their thoughts on and so, they never bring those things up.
