February 2012 Virgo Horoscope

Angelic alliances

Take a step back early in February to reassess your positions at work and in partnerships before moving forward later in the month. A subtle but significant shift occurs on Feb. 3 when limitless Neptune re-enters Pisces and your 7th House of Relationships, where it will reside until 2025. This long transit softens critical edges that keep love from flowing freely.

The creative Leo Full Moon on Feb. 7 brightens your 12th House of Soul Consciousness, perhaps stirring up desires or sparking vivid dreams that aren't ready to see the light of day. Clever Mercury in your 6th House of Self-Improvement opposes this Moon to remind you that you may need to develop specific skills to make the magic happen.

On Feb. 8, you're eager to take risks in how you connect with others thanks to alluring Venus' move into pioneering Aries and your 8th House of Intimacy, spurring your sense of adventure. The push toward boldly expressing your desires gets another boost from the New Moon in Pisces on Feb. 21. The Sun and Moon are joined by Neptune in your 7th House of Companions to flood you with feelings you can't easily explain. There's a strong chance that you might feel drained or exhausted by a needy partner, yet the considerable upside of this lunation is a sense of divine union that inspires you to pursue your highest aspirations.

Keep in Mind this Month
If you're fixated on superficial flaws in yourself or others, you will miss the point completely. Open your heart and see the perfection that lies within.

Key Dates for Virgo

Feb. 1: Joy to Your World
Take time out from attending to business and indulge in some midweek pleasure. Passionate Mars in your active 1st house opposes captivating Venus in your receptive 7th house, making you a prime candidate for having fun. The lines between work and play can blur when you're in such delightful company. Creativity grows in cooperation with imaginative individuals, and amorous feelings are plentiful if you don't bury them under a pile of practical obligations.

SUPER NOVA DAYS
Feb. 13 - 14: Two as One
Savvy Mercury's supportive trine with solid Saturn on Feb. 13 roots you in reality just hours before the messenger planet drifts into dreamy Pisces and your 7th House of Others. Mercury's conjunction with mystical Neptune on Feb. 14 dissolves cynicism and softens your analytical perspective with images and feelings you can't easily explain. While it's true that you could be deceived by a misleading individual or fall prey to your own fantasies, you may reach sublime heights of communication that melt usual boundaries to give you a real soul connection.
