February 2012 Monthly Horoscope for Taurus
A recent shift in your personal planetary regime ushers in a time of self-interest for Taurus, particularly during the early weeks of the month. The eastern sector now dominates more than the western, causing this tendency toward considering only your own opinion and somewhat devaluating the ideas and opinions of others. This will also hold true for the social aspects of your life; you may find yourself worrying overmuch about your own emotional needs to the detriment of your current close relationships. On the plus side, you are entering a period of greater autonomy; you will have almost complete control over your life for the next six months or so. Of course, the downside of this is that if things should go awry, you have no one to blame for your failure but yourself.
If you find you're dissatisfied with the current course of your life, you now have the power to make the changes you need to make in order to set things to right. Though you value those around you, you do have the ability to be happy without the good opinions of others. However, if you do what really makes you happy, you'll find that others are generally happy for you and enjoy your company.
With the majority of planets still above the horizon in your chart you easily recognize the fact that you're at your annual career peak. Focus your efforts on the workplace and you'll find you make unprecedented strides up the corporate ladder. Don't be afraid to allow the spotlight to shine on you if the opportunity should present itself.
During the first couple weeks of the month, you should try to focus your energies on getting plenty of rest and relaxation. You'll need this downtime to recharge your batteries in order to be ready for all the exciting things coming your way later in the month. After the 19th, feel free to use your improved health to enjoy the dynamic excitement being brought your way by the aspects of Pluto and Uranus. Though you're feeling invulnerable at this time, do your best to avoid confrontation, particularly confrontation of a vehicular nature. In other words, drive carefully and don't aggravate any unfortunate situation which may arise while you're behind the wheel of a large automobile. Don't give in to tantrums or arguments with friends or coworkers; you will not win and have much to lose. This is especially true when it comes to a business partner or spouse. Keep a civil tongue in your head and try to make the best peace possible.
The rebellious mood that seems to be coming over you the second half of the month could prompt you to volunteer for some sort of dangerous assignment. Use caution. On the romantic front, a stormy love affair could come your way between the 8th and 17th. Though it gets under way with uncharacteristic excitement, this romance could blow itself out faster than a birthday candle. Financial good news is headed your way, provided you can follow your instincts and keep yourself up to date on the latest technology.
