February 2012 Capricorn Horoscope


Moving beyond the practical limits you tend to place on yourself is your main priority this month. February starts with the Sun in unconventional Aquarius and your 2nd House of Income, suggesting that you'll earn more with ambitious thinking than by cautiously managing what's already on your professional plate.

The return of Neptune to its imaginative home sign Pisces on Feb. 3 picks up the thread that started during its first foray there from April 4 - Aug. 4, 2011. Ethereal Neptune will occupy your communicative 3rd House of Information until 2025, softening the hard edges of your mind to allow imagination and intuition to flow more easily.

Reason is no match for the powerful feelings unleashed by the dramatic Leo Full Moon in your 8th House of Intimacy on Feb. 7. An emotionally needy or over-the-top individual may try to sell you something you don't want to buy, yet taking the risk of opening your heart is preferable to turning your back on an opportunity for a more rewarding personal or business relationship.
Logic can also get lost in the fog of fantasy when rational Mercury floats through Pisces' mystical waters from Feb. 13 - March 2. Facts grow fuzzy as you learn to read subtle clues and to use tone and tempo to send messages beyond the boundaries of mere words. On Feb. 19, the Sun follows suit to begin a month-long stay in your 3rd house. Compassionate conversations can heal wounds and awaken a more spiritual and poetic view of life.

Keep in Mind this Month
Following your feelings freely will teach you so much more than clinging to a rigid view of reality that strangles hope in a net of so-called safety.

Key Dates for Capricorn

Feb. 1: Different Strokes
Watch out today for disagreements that are more about style than substance. This tension is due to an opposition of Mars in unpretentious Virgo and your 9th House of Philosophy to Venus in idealistic Pisces and your 3rd House of Learning. Whether you take the practical side of an argument -- your generally preferred position -- or the creative side, it's best not to be too serious. When humor is present, this face-off turns from fierce to flirtatious.

Feb. 21 - 23: Feeling is Believing
The New Moon in Pisces connects with this sign's spiritual ruling planet Neptune on Feb. 21. Psychic channels open for you, allowing you to understand things you might not be able to explain otherwise. The mystical gifts of this lunation come with a skeptical Mercury-Saturn aspect that demands hard evidence, and a Venus-Neptune semisquare that's ripe with uncertainty. Nevertheless, go with what you're feeling now even if others doubt you. If you need to make a case for your point of view, a Mercury-Mars opposition on Feb. 23 is the time for the truth to be told.
