Love planet Venus enters innovative Aquarius and your adventurous 9th House of Faraway Places on February 1 to expand your relationship horizons. If you have a partner now, going on a trip together or working toward a major goal is a good way to keep things interesting. It's important to be open-minded and to connect with other open-minded people because stale thinking can bore you to tears.
Still, there's some risk of miscommunication this month when your ruling planet Mercury enters slippery Pisces on February 5. While this favors gentle speech, imagination and poetic words that can salve wounds, there's a tendency to become slack with details or for others to express themselves in ways that are easy to misinterpret. Taking the time to make sure you're on the same page might seem like a mood killer, but it's less destructive than missing appointments or making major errors.
Freedom needs should be strong around the Aquarius New Moon on February 10. Although it's possible you could be feeling a little distant or isolated, you might appreciate people who are less demanding of your time and attention.
Mercury's retrograde turn on February 23 begins a three-week reversal period that gives you a second chance to rethink your position and to clarify issues. Note that this occurs with Mercury in tender Pisces, making conversations even more sensitive than usual.
The month ends with a dreamy and romantic Venus-Neptune conjunction on February 28. This lands in your professional 10th House of Career, which can make personal magic happen through your work.
