Life is as you like it for the most part this month. But there will be some lingering issues related to January’s challenges. These, however, will be much easier to handle because of your increased objectivity. Even so, the wise choice is to say no more than you must because you’re unlikely to convince decision-makers to see things your way. Venus enters your sign on the 4th, bringing with it renewed optimism as well as boosting your charm and charisma. Be cautious, though, of over-confidence, especially in career matters. Overall, you’ll attract helpful people who will be glad to do a favor if you need it. And you’ll be among the most popular on the social scene. In addition to Venus in your sign, relationships will benefit from Mercury in Pisces, your solar third house, from the 21st on. You’ll have a way with words, partly because your intuition will be strong, and you’ll be able to sense what others are thinking but not saying. The 25th is a good choice for meetings and talks because you can gently but firmly guide the discussion. Both the February 2 Moon in Pisces and the February 18 Moon in Leo, your money signs, reflect an upturn in finances. You could gain through anything and everything from a bonus to a raise to investments to a windfall. Keep an eye on your budget, though, because the urge to spend is still active. If you plan to apply for credit or a loan or mortgage, be sure to read all the fine print. There could be some confusing clauses that need clarification.
