Pleasure can be found around almost any corner when February starts with two appealing planets in your neighborly 3rd House. The life-giving Sun, symbol of self-confidence, and love planet Venus occupy this conversational and casual part of your chart until February 18 and 25, respectively. Discussions about unusual subjects and chance encounters enliven your social life.
If you already have a partner, seek out mentally stimulating activities that will give you plenty to talk about. If you're single and looking, don't be shy about striking up conversations with anyone who appeals to you. Knowing how to engage people in an easygoing way puts you both at ease. Connecting without pressure or high expectations allows you to test the waters before moving on to a more serious stage of relating.
Alluring Venus' favorable alignment with your lucky ruling planet Jupiter opens windows of opportunity for enjoyment and attraction on February 6. But if your optimism goes too far, be careful to curb your enthusiasm when energetic Mars squares excessive Jupiter on February 10. Your desire to say too much or go too far kicks in the day before, making this a very lively period of two or three days when more might not seem like enough.
Fortunately, a series of aspects from February 12-16 should take your head out of the clouds and put your feet back on solid ground. Still, hope rises high again when the Sun squares Jupiter on February 25, encouraging you to be more open while balancing impulsiveness with a dash of self-control.
