Welcome to February, beautiful Libra. You're ruled by Venus, the planet of romance, so even if it's not your season, it's a wonderful time to be a Libra with Valentine's Day this month. Venus ended her retrograde at the end of January and went direct, creating smooth skies for you and cupid. 

February kicks off with Juno, a planetary body known as the "asteroid of commitment and marriage," entering self-reliant Aquarius on Tuesday, February 1. When we think of commitment, we think of current or potential partners. This transit lights up the part of your chart that rules pleasure, Libra, but reminds you that you can achieve that all on your own. February is an excellent month to invest in sex toys and take time for self-care, such as baths and masturbating, even if you're in a relationship. Being present for others becomes so much easier when we're happy independently.

Mercury retrograde ends on Thursday, February 3, allowing communication to flow easier. Now is an ideal time to share kinks or fantasies with your partner if you are dating. When you take the time to get in touch with your desires solo, it's much easier to talk about them with others. Still, while the world is turning pink and red, your mind is also on your career.

On Valentine's Day, Monday, February 14, Pallas, an asteroid associated with wisdom, enters bold Aries. Partnership is a theme during this time, which is a topic that comes naturally to you, as you rule balance, relationships, and diplomacy, Libra. Yes, the stars agree that you're in for a lovely Valentine's Day, but you're also considering power dynamics at work. On this same date, Mercury enters Aquarius, giving you the courage to speak your truth. If you feel mistreated in a romantic relationship, you weigh your other options and stand up for yourself. Remember to do the same at work. While you're on the subject, check in to make sure that you are treating your coworkers with the respect and dignity that they deserve.

Wednesday, February 16, brings a full moon in Leo. So far, this month sees your relationships maturing, both professionally and personally. Full moons can stir up gossip and unexpected news (especially with the influence of dramatic Leo). Take it easy this night: Don't work late and don't stress about scheduling dates. You have permission to turn off your phone, break out the snacks, and go into full couch lock. When empathetic Pisces season kicks off on Friday, February 18, you may feel more emotionally sensitive than usual, so it's crucial to get in as much self-care time as you can, pretty Libra.

Your ruling planet, lover Venus (currently in Capricorn), forms a sextile, a fun, and flirty aspect, with dreamy Neptune (which is now in Pisces) on Thursday, February 24. This is a magical day of good luck. Mid-month, you were likely more focused on work than love, even with Valentine's Day, but February ends with a sensual bang. Expect lots of attention from crushes and lovers, and don't feel guilty about soaking it up.
