Being possessive and sticking to routine patterns of pleasure may not work very well this month. February opens with Venus, the planet of love and ruler of your sensual sign, in airy, detached Aquarius. You may require more space and independence, and even if you don't, giving others more room to breathe is a must for maintaining harmony in relationships.
Aquarius may be called the "Water Bearer," but it's an intellectual air sign that's associated with the mind. Bright new ideas, idealism, a sense of community and friendship without commitment are among its traits. Your willingness to experiment, break your old rules and open your mind to unique individuals and experiences will make you much more desirable.
Venus' favorable alignment with generous Jupiter on February 6 is a good time to share ideas and explore unfamiliar social territory. The Aquarius New Moon on February 9 falls in your 10th House of Career, where you can initiate contacts in work-related settings. Pushing the limits of what you will do in pursuit of pleasure makes sense then, as active and passionate Mars forms a dynamic 90-degree square with Jupiter the following day.
If you go too far or feel insecure, reality grabs hold on February 10, when Venus squares restrictive Saturn. If you're emotionally down, don't despair because you may be learning that love and approval sometimes need to be earned over time and with patience. Relationships may grow sweeter and warmer as of February 25, when Venus enters imaginative Pisces.
