February's Leo Horoscope Is Here, and Romantic Blessings Are Coming Your Way

You love (and deserve) attention, Leo, though the quick high of flirting often distracts you from the chance at something more. February is here to level up your love life, but there's a catch: You have to grow up.

Hello, you gorgeous Leo, has anyone told you yet how pretty you look today? At the end of last month, when Venus retrograde finally came to an end, you saw the stress level go down in your love life and the orgasms increase. Are you sitting down, Leo? Guess what — February brings even more romantic blessings your way, but it requires growing up on your part.

The month kicks off with Juno, a planetary body known as the "asteroid of marriage," entering unemotional Aquarius on Tuesday, February 1. Yes, Aquarius can be aloof, which may not sound like what you want to hear paired with the word marriage, Leo. However, because this lights up your 7th House of Partnership, this transit helps you establish a healthy relationship with boundariesTuesday, February 1, also brings a new moon in the aloof air sign. February asks you to let go of codependence in your love life and realize the benefits of letting go of immediate gratification in favor of long-term potential. Yes, it's fun to hear an ex slide into your DMs and give you attention, Leo. But is responding the best thing for your happiness (or current relationship)?

Messenger Mercury ends its first retrograde of the year and goes direct on Thursday, February 3. When the chatty planet goes direct, you're less likely to hear from exes, which means that you can begin working on long-term goals. Next, the communication planet leaves strict Capricorn. It enters free-thinking Aquarius on Monday, February 14, also lighting up the partnership house of your chart and just in time for Valentine's Day.

If you're single, this transit encourages you to begin looking for red flags and to only begin relationships with crushes who have lasting potential. And, if you're already partnered, this sees you adjusting your mindset to focus on what's best for your relationship long-term. You love attention, Leo, and you deserve it: You're ruled by the sun; you were made for the spotlight. But you tend to let the quick high of flirting with IG hotties distract you from your chance at something more. And if you want something casual? Well, that's cool, too. Just make sure to communicate with all parties to avoid any broken hearts.

There's a full moon in your sign, Leo, on Wednesday, February 16. So far, February asked you to think about end game over instant gratification. But tonight, with the bright light of the full moon in your sign, do nothing but soak in luxury. Eat delicious foods, desserts, and experiment with new makeup. As you may remember, Leo, full moons can bring drama — but that is not on your to-do list. The only thing you need to focus on tonight is self-care.

Pisces season begins on Friday, February 18. This water sign is empathetic, and over the next few weeks, you may feel more psychic than usual, Leo. Pay attention to messages that may occur in your dreams during this time. February is mostly about love, it is Cupid's month, after all, but once Pisces season begins, your mind will be bursting with productive, creative energy. Take advantage of it by writing down ideas as they come to you, and remember, Leo, don't forget about the endgame.
