LIBRA (September 23–October 23)
Ruling planet Venus in solar opposite Aries gives passion a leading role in the drama of your life during February, adding fire and heat to an almost too-airy approach to intimacy. Libra prefers idealistic beauty, avoiding anything unpleasant, messy, or imperfect. This month your membership in flawed, frail humanity comes up for renewal and the price to pay is recognition and acknowledgement of your own very human vulnerability. Maturity requires acceptance of ambiguous reality. Venus squares Jupiter February 23 at the New Moon in Pisces, forcing confrontation with your fears and reprioritizing compassion for others as well as yourself.
