Your Monthly Horoscopes: February 2019

Horoscopes

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!

Libra and Libra Rising

Feeling a bit antsy in your relationships, Libra? Mars, the planet of ruffled feathers and extreme actions will be moving out of your 7th house of relationships starting at the beginning of the month and moving into your 8th by the end of the month.

But Mars will be stirring the pot as it leaves the 7th and hitting Uranus - the planet of surprises and upheaval on its way out. Mars doesn't do things lightly. And in this case, Mars wants to make sure that you are awake and aware of its presence. So, at the end of the month, there might be a quick fight or upheaval with your close relationships. Traditionally, Mars through the 7th house represents a time of endings. You'll want to pay attention to what the lesson of Mars is for you.

Venus will be going into your 4th house and in the sign of Capricorn very early in the month. This house is all about your home and private life. Having Venus here helps to offset some of the more challenging times happening in your chart. But as Venus travels quickly through the 4th house during all of February, there will be some awesome counterbalances, respite, and rest from the issues that occupy this house. Beautification of your home will also be in great focus as this time. You may get the push you have been needing to get a beautiful thing for your home that you previously thought was too extravagant for your home. Venus is teaching you that sometimes the pretty things that have "no use" actually make you feel happier. And that sure is useful to your soul's growth.

Those who have experienced an HBCU homecoming understand the assignment. Students, alumni, and family of a Historically Black College and University gather to partake in the excitement of celebrating the heritage and culture of the school. It's a time of joy, honoring traditions, and for some, reflecting on the good ol' days. Homecoming weekends are spent eating well, laughing plenty, and enjoying the sights; and there is plenty to see! (Spoiler alert: Sleep is not on the syllabus.)

Summer is coming to an end, and it's officially time to start the fall activities. And with the start of a new season comes new movies and shows. One, in particular, is the final season of Netflix's Dear White People, airing September 22. A great thing about this show is that it sparks healthy conversation. Past seasons have explored topics like double consciousness, sexuality, and the Me Too Movement, but it's done it in a way that still allows the show to feel relatable and fun.

Period pain. Lawd. Could there be something that is more annoying, especially since it happens every 28-30 days? Like, c'mon. If you've ever wondered about the science behind it all, basically, we need our uterus to contract, so that it can shed the lining that accumulated, just in case we conceived in between cycles. And so, what basically happens is, the prostaglandins levels in our system increase which trigger inflammation and also period pain, so that the blood is able to flow from our bodies.

One of my favorite things about the changing seasons are the new vibes and new energies that change welcomes with it. September represents a transition from the white sand beaches, bottomless brunches, and undeniable romantic vibes long nights, festivals, and impromptu road trips often thought of when we think about the summer. In its place comes romanticism in a different approach. Pumpkin spice anything, the excuse to cuddle up, and the leaves of the trees turning warm shades sparks joy in a different way as fall begins. Perhaps what I am most excited about though are the 2021 wellness trends that come with it.

A few days ago, I was having a conversation with some folks about songs that should've been official singles yet never were. One of the ones that I shared was Mariah Carey's "All Alone in Love" (a song that she wrote when she was only 15, by the way). To me, it's a perfect way to intro this piece because I have had enough personal experiences and counseled enough people to know that it is very possible to be in a relationship with someone — and still feel quite alone in it. Not because your partner doesn't love you. Not because they're up to some totally f'ed up shenanigans. It's just…even though you signed up for a true and lasting partnership, somehow you now feel some of the very words that define what being alone can feel like: unattended, detached, unassisted, semi-compassionless and perhaps even abandoned on some levels.
