February has conflicting vibes. Let’s start with Mars in Pisces. Pisces is your solar sign of hopes, wishes, and big desires. Mars is the planet of anger and frustration. Mars in Pisces feels easily thwarted and as though you’re not getting anything you want. He’ll want you to assert yourself.
On the other hand, Venus is in Aquarius almost all month, until the 26th. Aquarius is your solar career sign. Venus here will want you to be conciliatory and please people and keep harmony so that you don’t blow things in your career. It will make a frowny face at Mars and say ‘it’s no fun being angry. I want you to get along with everyone, not be frustrated by them!’
If you’re a super-sensitive Taurus, then both planets will burst into tears, leaving you wondering what’s wrong with you. If you’re a tougher Taurus, you’ll force yourself to be nice even when you don’t want to be–and then you’ll feel guilty for not standing up for yourself.
The sun will poke its rays into this dilemma. It will side with Venus and niceness until the 18th and then it’ll switch over to Pisces to amp up the Mars-y feelings. The sun in Pisces will try to make you very aware of all the demands on you and all the people who want something from you, even if it’s only your attention.
What to do? Here’s my two cents for what it’s worth. Don’t feel guilty about being all nice and not standing up for yourself. This is your annual career month (with your career new moon occurring on the 10th), and you have permission to be as nice as you need to be to further your career objectives. Niceness suits your sun sign better anyway. Mars and Venus will calm down when Venus enters Pisces on the 26th anyway, and you’ll feel better then.
