Some people just want to watch the world burn. Some people see it burning and know that they have the power to put those fires out. That's you, Aquarius, and that's going to be your mission during the month of February. The month is a burning forest and you're going to attend to every fire - large or small - that you see in front of you. In every element of your life, there will be some form of crisis or significant change that you'll confront. Bring your garden hose and bucket of sand and get to work.
A major celestial cause of this sudden rush of fire is the presence of Mercury in Pisces around February 3rd. Pisces is your brother sign, and just like when our siblings are going through something rough, you're going to feel the effect of it. While Mercury in Pisces might bring clarity to some people in this world, for Aquarius it means responding to the fallout of everyone else. Look for this to have an effect on your entire month going into March.
Your workplace is going to have a lot of people this month running around as if their hair was on fire. It's too easy to get swept up in that and make you feel like you have to panic. Don't give in to this temptation, Aquarius. Observe the comings and goings and help people out when you can. One of your coworkers could really use your assistance this month and it's worth your time and energy to give it to them. If no one reaches out to you, take a look and see who would benefit from your help. Don't overextend yourself so that you don't have time for you, but be ready to reach out.
Your family is going to be a similar mode this month and you're the perfect person to provide them with a little help. You may have a family member who has continually been in trouble, or maybe there's one you get the sense is struggling. This is another fire for you to put out, Aquarius, and that's okay. Don't overextend yourself, but reach out and give what you can to that person. Keep your eyes open for any level of struggle: this could be on the scale of serious addiction or as little as they need an errand run for them. Be there.
If you're currently in a relationship, the fires to put out will be small scale troubles to deal with. Nothing you haven't experienced before. It should be business as usual for you and your usual person. If you're not currently in a relationship, this is probably a terrible time for you to be dating. Why? All that activity in the sky with your house is going to up the crazy factor for people. You would not be seeing potential mates in the best possible light. If you've already scheduled a date or two during February (ugh, Valentine's Day!), by all means, go through with it and don't cancel. But set your expectations low, because this is not the best time for your would-be partner. In fact, think of it as the experience of seeing them at their worst. What's your takeaway from the experience? Is it bad enough that you wouldn't want to bother with their best?
If there's one day this month that's going to be significant for you, Aquarius, it's the 18th. Why? One of the planets is changing signs and entering your house. That planet is Venus, and whenever she moves house, everything and everyone feels the effects of it. That's a pivotal day, so if you have some sort of big thing you've been putting off, do it on the 18th. Asking for a raise? Thinking about proposing? Even if you're thinking about buying a lottery ticket, that's the day.
This is your month for being a volunteer firefighter, Aquarius. It's unpaid, hard work, but it's necessary and you're the best one to do it. It's also what the universe has designed for you so that you're ready for the gifts it will bestow on you the rest of the year. So put that helmet on, bring your dalmatian, and be the hero the people around you need.
