Buried between January, which makes a bold statement, and March, which contains the promise of spring, February is an unassuming and modest month. But we are currently in eclipse season, so the air is charged with electricity and far reaching possibilities. Eclipses travel in pairs. On January 31st, we had our first eclipse of the year, a full moon (lunar) eclipse. On February 15th, we have a new moon (solar) eclipse. Eclipses are super powerful new or full moons; they shake us up, wake us up and bring news of big life events. This eclipse is in rebellious Aquarius the sign that represents the need to break free and think for ourselves. Brainy Mercury and loving Venus are also in Aquarius the first part of the month, adding to the radical energy. On February 10th, Venus enters sensitive Pisces, followed by Mercury on the 16th and the sun on the 18th, creating a more forgiving and gentler atmosphere.
With its cold days and long nights, February was made for hunkering down in front of the fire, long naps, soothing teas and hearty soups. And of course, Kitty couldn’t be happier that you are home. This is the perfect month to spend quality time together.
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
The February 15th eclipse falls in your zone of technology and networking. There could be an opportunity to join a smart and savvy media team or launch your own online business. On February 18th the sun enters receptive Pisces and your zone of solitude. Even Rams need downtime, and right now your finest inspiration comes from dreams. Fear not great warrior; next month you’ll be back, rested and raring to go.
Does your kitty have a Facebook page, blog or Instagram account with lots of fans and followers? Fire signs like Aries, Sagittarius and Leo might appreciate the online exposure. Scorpios kitties are too private and Cancers far too shy.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
The February 15th eclipse in your professional zone could result in a raise, promotion or new office. However, you need to step out of your cozy comfort zone and take some risks—pitch an original idea or upgrade your computer skills. Your ruler, Venus, visits your social zone February 10th until March 6th and new and interesting friends come into your life. One of them may play matchmaker February 20th-25th.
Eclipse energy can be tense, so some extra attention (and petting) for Kitty is recommended. Could one of your friends play matchmaker for and arrive with a feline friend? Anything is possible.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
You’re most alive when you’re learning, and this month, there’s opportunities to grow. The eclipse in your zone of travel and education encourages you to take a seminar, learn a new language or begin a meditation practice. Visiting a place you’ve never been will get your juices flowing. Gemini is a mental sign, but with Venus in perceptive Pisces (from February 10th to March 6th), trust your intuition in life and love.
The eclipse plus Mercury and Venus in edgy Aquarius during the first half of the month, and your Gemini kitty will be feeling especially energetic. Like you, Kitty will be open to learning new things—try a new game or toy, or consider moving his bed to a different area. A Taurus or Cancer cat wouldn’t tolerate it, but Geminis like a bit of change.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
The February 15th eclipse occurs in your zone of joint finances, your partner could get an unexpected raise or you might receive a windfall. Later this month Venus, Mercury and the sun all in caring Pisces deepens your compassion and intuition. Your generosity attracts the right people at the right time. On February 24th, someone from your past shows up—romantic or platonic, the encounter will please you.
Winter is for binge watching your favorite shows. Between “The Crown” and “This Is Us,” be sure to include some Animal Planet or nature shows for Kitty.
Leo (July 23 – Aug 22)
The February 15th eclipse falls in your relationship zone and could bring a sudden romance, a change in an existing one or a new business partnership. Either way, it will happen totally out of the blue, so trust your gut. From February 10th until March 6th, Venus (in Pisces) visits your wealth zone. It’s a great time to refinance, apply for a mortgage or buy a new home, especially on February 21st and 25th.
The Eclipse takes place in your Leo kitty’s relationship zone too, so keep that in mind when you’re out socializing. Be sure to give Kitty the companionship he’s craving.
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sept 22)
The solar eclipse in future-oriented Aquarius motivates you to let go of anything that no longer serves you, from old habits to toxic people. You may feel inspired to look for a new job, one in which you can make a real difference. Venus in your partnership zone beginning on February 6th brings a new love interest or you and your romantic partner may decide to get engaged or renew your vows.
Virgo kitties are fastidious, which is why they are always grooming. They also love a spotless litter box. Kitty is happiest when his areas are pristine and it will enhance your relationship with him to keep it that way, although he is not shy about reminding you in ways that are subtle and not so subtle.
Libra (Sept 23 – Oct 22)
The audacious Aquarius eclipse on February 15th takes place in your zone of romance and recreation. It’s time to stop playing by the rules and explore an unusual creative project or date someone who isn’t your type. Involved? This eclipse might revitalize your relationship. The Sun, Venus and Mercury decamp in your zone of day-to-day work later this month and your work environment and your rapport with co-workers improve tremendously.
Have you been busy staying out late and not spending enough time with Kitty? The eclipse could be the perfect catalyst to rejuvenate your relationship. Make the time for him—you’ll both benefit from it!
Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 21)
The February eclipse brings big changes on the home front. You may decide to sell your home, someone could move in (or out), or you and your partner may discover you’re going to be parents. Venus visits your zone of play and pleasure from February 10th until March 6th. Reclaim your sanity by doing things that brings you joy—take a fabulous vacation, get back to your painting or try Tango lessons.
When you come home from a long trip do you find that your Scorpio kitty has chewed your favorite slippers or torn up a roll (or three) of toilet paper? Try spending quality time before your trip and bring back a special treat with you.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Motivator Mars visits Sagittarius through March 17th; you may not get much rest but you’ll have lots of fun. Expect some big news around the time of the February 15th eclipse. Single? Don’t be surprised if a family member tries to fix you up with someone. Be open. At the very least, you’ll meet a kindred spirit or perhaps the love of your life. Schedule it for February 21st, 25th or 27th.
Action planet Mars will be revving up Kitty’s energy as well, so don’t be surprised if he’s running around more than ever. Sagittarian cats are athletic so maybe a new and bigger cat condo would be appropriate.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
January gave you major momentum, and if you took the necessary action you should begin to see some tangible results. The February 15th eclipse occurs in your financial zone, so you may get a job offer, a raise or an unexpected commission check. With charming Venus and Mercury in compassionate Pisces late February, you may feel moved to give back—consider donating to charity or doing some volunteering at an animal shelter.
Volunteering at an animal shelter is admirable and you should definitely considerate it, but remember that charity begins at home. Make sure you have plenty of quality time for your own cat.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
The February 15th new moon eclipse is in Aquarius, so expect the unexpected. Eclipses bring major life events such as births, marriages and big moves. Uranus makes an optimistic angle to the eclipse, so it should be positive. It’s also the start of your power time so dream big and be bold. Venus enters Pisces and your financial zone February 10th and hunch could lead to a lucrative investment.
You’re not the only one who is influenced by the eclipse this month. Your Aquarian kitty will be feeling the intensity as well, and if you’re having a major life event, then Kitty will be too. Mid-month calls for some extra attention and affection.
Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
The eclipse inspires you with a cutting-edge idea, but you need to act quickly. Sensual Venus enters Pisces from February 10th until March 6th, making this one of the most deliriously romantic times of the year. You and your partner will be totally in sync. Single? Your glow could attract someone special February 21st when Venus and Neptune align. On February 18th, the sun enters Pisces and your cosmic year begins.
Don’t be surprised if your Pisces kitty is fawning over you and purring like crazy on February 21st when Venus and Neptune rendezvous. Pisces felines are exceptionally sensitive and feel the energy of the planets. P.S. – It’s his or her birthday, too, so do something to celebrate!
