Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

The Uplift | February: Drafting Your Life

Happy Birthday Water Bearer! If you’re still recovering from last year, know that you’re not alone. Take the first few days of the month to just relax and reflect on the last 365 days of your life and what you want to leave behind as you start a new chapter. What do you value enough to keep? The New Moon in your sign is all about endings and new beginnings, so you may want to jot down your vision for 2019, if you’re feeling crafty why not create a vision board so you can keep your focus clear. After that much of February is dedicated to you getting your money and home in order. As frustrating as it can be to have to think about these practical matters, you gotta do it. With Mars powering up your Home and Family Sector on the 14th you may finally have the energy you need to give your home life a good workout. Consider cleaning out your closets KonMari style and see what can be given away or sold to spark more joy at home. After that, sit down and go over your income and debts around the Full Moon on the 19th so you can start your new year feeling secure even if the rest of the world has gone crazy.


Pisces (February 18 – March 20)

The Uplift | February: Drafting Your Life

Take some time to rest and reflect for the first half of the month, Pisces. You’re heading into another year of life, and it’s always nice to take into account just how much you’ve accomplished so far as well as where you’d like to go next. The New Moon on the 4th will have you feeling more meditative and interested in behind the scenes activities instead of being out in the public eye. This is a good time to volunteer quietly,  work on projects that are close to your heart and feel restorative to your soul. By the time Valentine’s Day rolls around you’ll be feeling more up for socializing with friends or getting involved with groups that share your interests and want to actually do the work involved to make it happen rather than just talk about it endlessly. The Sun’s movement into your sign on the 18th followed by the Full Moon on the 19th signals a super charged birthday season for you, Pisces. Think about who you want to be, and what your outlook will be for the rest of the year. If you’ve been struggling in the past, know that you get to let that fear go. You’re filled with creativity and energy, use it to go after your personal goals, try practicing some healthy selfishness. No more endless giving that leaves you feeling tapped out while others reap the benefit of your energy. You come first. Now go enjoy your birthday, you deserve it.


Aries (March 20 – April 20)

The Uplift | February: Drafting Your Life

You’re low-key a revolutionary now, Aries. Well maybe not entirely, but after having 8 years of Uranus the planet of Change and Upheaval in your sign, you know that the only constant in life is change. This month consider how much you’ve evolved over the last few years and how you’ve been able to adapt or simply let go when the call came down from the heavens to do so. This month’s New Moon wants you to plant a new dream for the future. What do you want to see happen for your community and who do you want to be by your side when you work to see it come to life. Yes, this can seem super idealistic, but that would be the point of hoping and wishing for the future, right? Think of the organizations you’re currently a part of and the people you run with. Are these the people you trust to help make the collective hope a reality? The sooner you figure out what you want to create the easier time you’ll have with Mars running the show in your House of Money & Self Worth on the 14th. Get into that side hustle, put in that extra time to see extra money in the bank so that you feel like your desires are within your reach. Hell, you can even use that cash to invest in those dreams you want to create, so why not?


Taurus (April 20 – May 21)

The Uplift | February: Drafting Your Life

February opens up with you making plans for the future, Taurus. If 2018 was about shaking proverbial the table, 2019 is about committing the new path you want to take. You’re changing more than you realize so be willing to take some leaps of faith, dare to be different and ahead of your time. The New Moon on the 4th will give you an opportunity to set a new intention around your career and how you want to be seen by others in this world. It’s in the sign of Aquarius so try to think outside of the box just a little. Just because what you want is different or unusual, doesn’t mean that it’s not worth having. You’re in the mode of learning new things and seeing the world from a different point of view, so stay flexible to the twists and turns that are coming your way. Mars enters your sign just in time for Valentine’s Day starting you on a new two year cycle around how you take action and assert yourself. This is just a warm up for Uranus’ return to Taurus in March so consider what you want to tackle over the next few years knowing that you’ll have the focus and the drive to achieve it. With so much to consider, the Full Moon on the 19th will push you to go have some fun with friends and lovers. Some of these people may not be coming with you on your new adventure so be sure to enjoy their company now. Here’s to your future, Taurus.


Gemini (May 21 – June 21)

The Uplift | February: Drafting Your Life

Life is meant to be engaging, Gemini. Now we all have moments of boredom and disinterest, but for you that’s like the kiss of death. February is about reigniting your passion. What turns you on? What gets your engines going? What makes you want to stay up all night because you’ve fallen down the rabbit hole and you really don’t want to come back out? Find the people and things that inspire you to do that kind of soul searching, as the New Moon on the 4th wants you to open up your mind and go beyond your current boundaries. How can you expand and learn more than you know now? If it seems like there are a lot of questions for you to answer, that’s because it’s true. Curiosity and a desire to learn is what makes the world go round, and if we never left our comfort zones we’d never see what lies beyond our doorstep. Use this energy to reflect on what you secretly wish you were brave enough to do. The thing is you are that courageous, but could just be lacking in focus at the moment. Chill out, journal, reflect and meditate on those dreams of yours that have been just out of your reach, but you can feel them coming your way. Feeling centered now will be helpful as the Full Moon on the 19th will be asking you to strike a better balance between your home life and your career. If you’ve been hiding away at home due to a lack of energy, it’s time to put yourself out there. If it’s been the reverse where it’s been nothing but work, try to make some time to rest so that you don’t burn out. Remember you’re not meant to know all the answers, Gemini, the fun lies in discovering them along the way.


Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

The Uplift | February: Drafting Your Life

This month try focusing on how well you’ve been merging and collaborating with others, Cancer. Although your sign is known as the nurturer of the zodiac, there are limits that even you have to abide by for your own sanity. Do you find yourself constantly giving when the care that you put out isn’t being reciprocated at the same level? Are you being accused of being smothering or overbearing? If so you may want to rein it in a little and trust that you can have healthy relationships with people that don’t require burn out on your part. The New Moon in the 4th wants you to create a new story about intimacy and sharing your resources with others. That can include how you share your body, money and even your deepest fears. Consider the people that you trust to even get close enough to you, how close are they? Maybe that hard shell of yours is acting like armor. Sometimes when we overextend ourselves it’s because we want to maintain a sense of control when we don’t feel that we have any at all. Control is an illusion anyway, so you may want to let that idea go. Try to practice some vulnerability this month. Mars will be energizing your House of Friendship and pushing to go hang out with the people who share your interests and hopes for the future, open up and be inspired by them and perhaps even allow them to take care of you for a change. You might like it.


Leo (July 22 – August 23)

The Uplift | February: Drafting Your Life

Although you may imagine yourself to be the King or Queen upon your throne, Leo, the key to your success this month is learning how to strategize and collaborate with others. But before you bring others into your plans make sure you’re in fighting shape to lead the charge. February opens up with you investing in your health and well-being as well as how you run your day to day activities and to do list. If your body and desk is a mess, chances are that will be the case for everything else you touch as well. For the New Moon on the 4th, try to think of ways you can improve how you interact with your partners. Perhaps there are some relationships coming to their natural end, while new ones are just beginning to take shape. Learn from your mistakes so that you don’t repeat old patterns that mess with your flow. By Valentine’s Day you’ll be raring to go on your long term goals and projects especially if they’ll push you forward on your career and personal ambitions. Just don’t forget to let others in on your plans, as in don’t flake on your date(s) because you got stuck working late. You can prioritize your goals and still make time for the people in your life, Leo, it just takes a little consideration and a lot of communication, two things you can definitely master.


Virgo (August 23 – September 23)

The Uplift | February: Drafting Your Life

While you may feel like you’re the best person to handle all the day to day responsibilities in your life, remember that you’re not the only person in the world who can. There’s this thing called delegation and sharing the workload so that you have time to handle other parts of your life, like say…romance? Or maybe your creative projects or just kicking up your feet to relax or have a little fun. The New Moon on the 4th wants you to consider a new way of working and taking care of yourself. Does it have to be all you all the time that puts out the fires, makes sure that everything’s running smoothly and fixes the world’s problems too? Seems rather ambitious and exhausting, Virgo, so why not edit down your to-do list so that you have time for living life. Luckily for you there are plenty of people who would like to get close to you this month, so why not let them in? The Full Moon on the 19th is all about learning how to put more emphasis on yourself rather than overextending yourself in your partnerships with others. Take close look at your relationships, do they feel equal? Are you getting as much as you’re giving? It could also be that you’re so busy that you’re missing out on the support and love people want to send your way. You can have the best of both worlds, Virgo, it just requires you to let go of needing to be in control at all times. Relax, trust that you’ve got support and you’ll only have to clean up after others  just a teeny tiny bit for it to meet your standards. Sounds way better than doing it all on your own, doesn’t it?


Libra (September 23 – October 22)

The Uplift | February: Drafting Your Life

The best remedy for hard times is to go out and have some fun Libra. With the way the eclipses and heavy duty planets like Saturn & Pluto have been sitting in your House of Home & Family, use the New Moon on the 4th to get out of the house and play away your worries and heavy thoughts. Go dancing, make a date to go to a concert, get back into your creative pursuits that may have been put up on the shelf because life has just been a bit hectic as of late. Even if going out isn’t in the cards, try to bring some of that joyful energy home so that you feel a sense of peace despite all that may be going on. Mars movement into Taurus on the 14th will have you looking for ways to change your life in significant ways, Libra. Take a hard look at the current state of affairs and be honest about what just isn’t working for you anymore. It may be joint finances shared, or perhaps the intimacy or lack thereof within a relationship, or just a feeling that you want more passion in a life that feels kinda blah at the moment. Whatever it is, know that you can take deliberate action in changing it for the better. Don’t worry, you’ll have assistance from the heavens when trying to figure out what to tackle first. The Sun and Mercury in your House of Daily Routines and Health will lend support by asking you to break down your tasks into lists and actionable steps that get you closer to your desires little by little. And be sure to pay attention to your dreams when the Full Moon rolls around on the 19th, as they will also guide you to being closer to what your heart actually desires.


Scorpio (October 22 – November 22)

The Uplift | February: Drafting Your Life

Who do you consider to be your family, Scorpio? What are the things from the past that are holding you back from being who you are? Whatever your relationship to your family and home, the New Moon on the 4th will give you a chance to set a new tone that feels fresh to you. That may mean cleaning out clutter, saying goodbye to physical locations or even people who don’t embody what family, support and security means to you. Home is the foundation on which you stand, so make sure it feels good. You can even celebrate with an impromptu housewarming that invites good vibes into your space if it’s been feeling a little funky as of late. Do this now since the later part of the month will have you wrangling with your one on one relationships, with Mars pushing you to commit and be willing to compromise with others. This could be great for business collaborations as well as romance if you’re currently in or are looking for more love in your life. Get used to having people around, Scorpio, the Full Moon on the 19th will be encouraging you to be around friends who you can share your vision for the future with especially if life feels uncertain. Loosen up and have a laugh with them, laughter is sometimes the best tool we have when life gets wild.


Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

The Uplift | February: Drafting Your Life

Although you may typically thrive at living by the seat of your pants and having luck swoop into save the day at the very last second, it’s time to get serious, Sadge. February promises to be a very busy month for you, so you may want to start stretching now. The New Moon on the 4th will bring in lots of emails, mental tasks and trips that you’re going to have to stay on top of if you want to get by. Here’s a trick: don’t put them off until later, answer them when they come in, put the note in your calendar right away, say yes or no the moment you know rather than forget and freak out later down the line. Getting your inbox down to zero may be too ambitious, let’s be honest, but do your best to read all your messages on a daily basis so that you don’t miss out on opportunities that could increase your income and advance your career. Valentine’s Day may not be the sexiest this year, with Mars pushing you to get a handle of your health and daily tasks with more gusto. Maybe it’ll be a gym date followed by a kale smoothie instead of wine and chocolate but that’s not that bad of a deal. The point is to get organized so that you feel more confident about the direction your life is taking. It will start to pay off by the time the Full Moon appears on the 19th, emphasizing the balance you have between your worldly ambitions and your home life. See, if you’re organized, focused and settled, everything will fall into place without needing the Gods of Luck to intervene on your behalf every other second.



Capricorn (December 21 – January 20)

The Uplift | February: Drafting Your Life

You have to remind yourself that you are deserving of good things in your life, Capricorn. February wants you to zero in on your confidence and self- worth as the New Moon on the 4th asks you to create a new story around not only your finances but your feeling of worthiness too. You can work yourself to death in an effort to feel secure by having money in the bank but will it ever feel like it’s enough? Does a desire for financial security push you to do things against your own code of ethics? Check in what you truly value, not what you’ve been taught to believe is important. If it’s no longer true for you, or causing you more stress than happiness it may be time for a redo. Thankfully, Mars will be giving you a shot of energy when it comes to romance, creative and play time. Having fun, flirting, falling in love and awakening your creative impulses can help you figure out which way you want to go and what actually feels inspiring and life affirming rather than just the daily grind and chasing the dollar. The playing that you do now will support you in figuring out what you want to learn next, as the Full Moon on the 19th will be asking you to release any blocks you have around opening up to new ideas and adventures that fill you with curiosity and excitement, much better fuel than just needing enough to get by.
