It’s mostly status quo this month, and financial issues will continue to pop up with yourchildren and leisure-time activities. Investments also continue to require caution. Curb your generosity if a romantic interest or friend looks to you for money or, worse, to co- sign a loan, as you’ll surely regret it. Protect your resources. Embrace relaxation, at least for an hour or so each evening. That’s the advice of the February 18 Moon in Leo, your solar twelfth house. Your mind and body will thank you for it because February will be a busy, fast-paced month. Take it a step further and treat yourself to a half day at a local spa or lazy weekend hours on the couch with a best-seller. Relationships are a central theme this month with Venus arriving in Capricorn, your solar fifth house, on the 4th, and Mercury visiting three signs: Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces. You’ll have a way with words and can charm others with ease. People will mostly see things your way at work from the 3rd to the 20th, after which talk strengthens ties with your partner and children. This is definitely one of your favorite months of the year because the emphasis is on your job. The February 2 Moon in Aquarius, your solar sixth house, will have you at the center of the action, especially with Mars in the same sign through the 21st. You might even see a bigger paycheck for your efforts. But be sure to follow up if a coworker offers to lend a hand; he or she may not follow through as promised, which could leave you scrambling.
