Do your ideas have staying power? As February begins, you could be lit up with inspiration and the drive to go bigger. You're in the tailwind of the January 31 total lunar eclipse in Leo, which blazed through your third house of communication and kindred spirits. Your clever or controversial commentary may have captured people's attention—for better AND worse. Did you stir up a storm, Gemini, or get people buzzing? Either way, February could begin with YOUR name on everyone's lips.
For some Geminis, the eclipse brought surprising news or radically shifted the course of events. A meeting of the minds, one that happened as far back as August 2017, could morph into something much larger. Take inventory this month: Who do you consider your "tribe," and how can you take these relationships further? With go-getter Mars in your opposite sign of Sagittarius until March 17, dynamic duos might take flight this month. A casual conversation or a brainstorming session can swiftly become a genius collaboration. Eclipses often come with upheavals or a strong directive to take action NOW. The flurry of action could feel frantic—but you're a Gemini, and this hyperkinetic energy might just be your preferred state!
February invites you to take your grand visions into the wider world. The Sun is in Aquarius and your global, outspoken ninth house until February 18, tag-teaming with your ruling planet, Mercury, which is here until February 17. And a second eclipse (this one solar) will arrive on February 15, when the Aquarius new moon lands in your horizon-stretching ninth house, bringing a major opportunity to travel, take risks and expand.
Is there an area of your life where you're playing too small? In the span of these two eclipses, you're being pushed to think beyond limitations. If ten people loved what you had to say, then why wouldn't a hundred…or a thousand? This month, you'll glimpse your own potential and see how vast it truly is. When you team up with the right players, the options are practically limitless.
Focus on the big picture and you'll see countless possibilities to turn the seed of an idea into a small empire or the adventure of a lifetime. For example, if you're teaching a one-time workshop, why not also capture your brilliance on video, then sell it to many more people as an online course? Hello, passive income! If you're making vacation plans, add in a "voluntourism" or an educational component. Yoga teacher-training in Costa Rica, anyone? We're not suggesting you drive yourself crazy trying to do too much, Gemini. Rather, aim to get more bang for your buck. Before you expend your energy, think of how you can also extend the results.
The February 15 new moon also kicks off the Chinese Year of the Earth Dog. Bid adieu to the shade-throwing Fire Rooster and welcome a more collaborative and communal lunar year. Work with people who can take your ideas to new communities and help build your network. It's time to set some #packgoals that will unleash your collective brilliance.
But no need to rush: February is an unusual month because there are NO full moons, which means that not everything will be revealed or exposed yet. It may take until the March 1 Virgo full moon for all the eclipse-fueled events to completely unfold. In the meantime, be patient and explore your options.
You can also busy yourself with Valentine's Day plans…or not. The moon will be in its low-key "balsamic" (nearly new) phase on February 14, which could put everyone in a "meh" kind of mood. (Sure, it may be Hump Day, but this midweek holiday could have you feeling less than frisky and festive.) Cupid probably won't get the warm welcome he's expecting—at least, not for another week, when Venus and enchanting Neptune sync up, creating a perfect setting for a do-over date. If you ARE making V-Day plans, focus on simple elegance. With love planet Venus in your upscale tenth house and passionate Mars in your relationship sector, treat someone special to your undivided attention in a lovely location. Or surprise them with tickets to go away for the weekend, or just on a special day trip somewhere off the beaten path. Single Gems could enjoy a low-pressure night of fun and laughs with friends—and maybe some unexpected flirtation with a person different than your usual type.
Your blue-sky visions could spark a blue-chip campaign after February 18, when the Sun starts its month-long visit to Pisces and your career-focused tenth house. Your sensible Type-A side returns with a vengeance. (FYI: Every Gemini has one, even if it's your best-kept secret!) You're ready to get down to business and make decisive moves. Start drafting your master plans, Gemini, and bouncing them off of a few smart people who can give you priceless feedback. Who knows? One of these sounding boards could prove to be the missing link or a powerful partner. It might even be a significant other or a very close friend. So while you widen your search radius, don't forget to recognize the great prospects who are a phone call or a holler away.
