Welcome to February, hot Aries. When Venus, the planet of love, money, and beauty, ended its retrograde last month, matters of finance and romance became easier to navigate. Now, February brings even better news on the abundance front. On Tuesday, February 1, Juno, the asteroid of marriage, enters aloof Aquarius. As the first sign of the zodiac and a powerful fire sign, you like to get your way, Aries. While you tend to get what you want, at times, your fiery temperament can overwhelm love interests. However, with the detached influence of air sign Aquarius on commitment-oriented Juno, you can navigate romantic relationships rationally. This transit reminds you that when you think before you act, Aries, communication flows more effortlessly, and you reach your end goal quicker than when you act on emotions alone.

Mercury ends its retrograde and goes direct on Thursday, February 3 in hardworking Capricorn, before re-entering Aquarius on Valentine's DayMonday, February 14. It looks like you're in for a satisfying Valentine's Day this year, Aries. With Mercury direct, and the rational influence of air sign Aquarius, you have an easier time communicating directly about your needs. If you're in a relationship and expect a nice dinner, followed by gifts and hot sex, make sure to relay that to your partner calmly, so they know how to treat you up to your standards. Conversely, if you're single, or want to blow off the over-hyped holiday for any reason, make that clear, too. Whether it's a night alone, giving you plenty of time to take a long bath and masturbate, or a romantic dinner for two, you can get precisely what you want from Cupid. You just have to express those desires to others. Your partner(s), friends, and other loved ones can't read your mind. 

On this same date, Monday, February 14, Pallas, the asteroid of wisdom, enters your sign, Aries. Whether you're in a long-term relationship or recently getting back into the dating scene, Valentine's Day can put a lot of pressure on you, your relationships, and potentially your self-esteem. Thankfully, with sensible Pallas in your sign, you're able to recognize that one holiday doesn't adequately reflect how loved you are. That being said, Aries, February is just getting started when it comes to your love life

The romantic planet Venus, which is currently in Capricorn, conjuncts your ruling planet, fighter Mars, which is also in Capricorn, on Wednesday, February 16. We associate Mars with divine masculine traits, which we all contain regardless of gender. Mars energy includes assertiveness, orgasms, and all that's required in love and war. Not only does this transit ignite your bedroom with passion (expect to try a new kink or sex toy), but this is also a promising day monetarily. So get ready to collect checks and make business deals for the year ahead.  

Psychic Pisces season begins on Friday, February 18. Your intuition is in full force, but you won't be able to tap into those powers if all you do is doom scroll on social media. So during the next few weeks, work in screen breaks and meditation into your self-care routine. Pisces season is also the perfect time to start studying tarot, an excellent tool for sharpening your psychic senses. 

Your romantic relationships ignite with passion when your ruling planet Mars, which is currently in Capricorn, creates a sextile Neptune in Pisces on Wednesday, February 23. This erotic transit is all about scorching sex, the kind that is both loving and steamy at once. And, if you're single? Don't worry; there's still plenty of welcome news coming your way, following themes from earlier in this month, with your ruling planet in hardworking Capricorn. Circle this date in your calendar, as there's a high chance of bountiful money news. Enjoy the sex, put some cash in your savings account, if you can, and we'll see you next month.
