February 2012 Aquarius Horoscope

Just out of reach

It's all about you as the Sun in brilliant Aquarius illuminates your 1st House of Self until Feb. 19. Plus, your perceptions are keen and you're able to easily put your thoughts into words while prolific Mercury is traveling through your sign until Feb. 13. However, the Leo Full Moon on Feb. 7 shines in your 7th House of Partners to remind you that there are others, too, whose needs you must consider.

Your dreams of happiness and material abundance are highlighted on Feb. 3 when fanciful Neptune floats into imaginative Pisces and your 2nd House of Self-Worth. However, goals that have seemed close start to slowly recede into the distance when karmic Saturn turns retrograde, also on Feb. 7, just prior to reaching a trine with Neptune.

Although you may experience financial uncertainty when Mercury and the Sun conjunct confusing Neptune in your 2nd House of Resources on Feb. 14 and Feb. 19, your attention to money matters should help clear things up. The supersensitive Pisces New Moon on Feb. 21 joins spacey Neptune, so don't waste energy feeling sorry for yourself if resolution takes longer than you wish.

Keep in Mind this Month
If your actual experiences don't live up to your expectations, remember that the purpose of your dreams is to spur you to something greater.

Key Dates for Aquarius

SUPER NOVA DAYS
Feb. 7 - 9: Spills and Thrills
Wit and wisdom slip off your tongue on Feb. 7 as the Sun and expressive Mercury meet up in your 1st House of Personality. You'll enjoy animated conversations, because the lively Leo Full Moon occurs on the same day. However, you could be so eager to please someone you like when charming Venus prances into spontaneous Aries on Feb. 8 that you speak before considering the effects of your words. Awkward apologies or unconscious pushiness create social discomfort when Mercury forms an ill-adjusted quincunx to aggressive Mars on Feb. 9. But a thrilling Venus-Uranus conjunction in your 3rd House of Communication indicates that intellectual or romantic excitement is yours if you're willing to be vulnerable and take a risk with your heart.

Feb. 25 - 28: Live Long and Prosper
You take extra time to appreciate your home and family on Feb. 25 when the affectionate Pisces Sun sextiles lavish Jupiter in your 4th House of Domestic Conditions. However, an anxious Mercury-Jupiter aspect raises concerns about losing what you have or not getting what you want now. There's no need to worry; just make a new plan, for a shrewd Sun-Pluto sextile on Feb. 28 encourages you to dream big as long as you're not selfish.
