February 2020 Monthly Horoscope for Aries
The people around you are going to be your main focus in February, Aries. This doesn't mean you're going to be neglecting yourself. In fact, make sure you do get your rest and eat right, because there are going to be a lot of people tugging on your sleeve and needing your help. There's a lot of chaos in the air during this month and the people need help. In fact, they'll need a leader. Will you answer the call?
Right at the start of the month (or close to it: the 3rd, to be specific), you're going to be heavily affected by Mercury entering the house of Pisces. This is going to be especially strong for a few signs, but you're going to feel an odd ripple effect from it. Why? You'll be especially sensitive to everyone else around you as they wrestle with the demons this will be dredging up for them. Demons? Yes, everyone is going to have a hefty burden they're dealing with during February. It's not that you won't, Aries, but you're going to be faced with other people's demons more than your own, or how other people deal (or don't) with them. All the people around you are going to be piling some luggage onto your shoulders this month, and that's okay. It's not fun, but it's just the way it's going to be. There's not much sense in complaining about it. All you can do is handle it the best way you can and know that March is going to be considerably easier for you IF you handle yourself well in February.
If that wasn't enough, Venus entering Aquarius around 18th will REALLY make things crazy with the people in your life. It's going to be like a great cosmic blackout for them: things that were available suddenly aren't and no one will be able to see where they're going. And guess who is the one person with a working flashlight? That's right: you. That's another burden the people around you are going to lay on your shoulders. But here's where you're going to spin the experience and twist it into something you can use productively. You can either be everyone's servant, or you can step up and be a leader. Remember: you're the person with the flashlight, so maybe you should be the one in front showing the way. However, this makes sense to you and however, this manifests is really up to you, Aries. What's important is that you remember that you can lead and that you're as viable a candidate as anyone else.
Remember that people stumbling in the dark are often scared and maybe a little defensive. Pay particular attention to your loved ones at this time. They may be snapping at you a little or holding you at arm's length. That's okay. It's nothing personal about you. They are trying to make sense of a world that's gone slightly crazy and you just happen to be in their way. In addition to helping everyone out this month, you're going to have to tap into hidden reserves of patience when it comes to those very close to you. This will pay off for you later, though. Your friends, family, and lovers will remember you during this time and what you do. This is the ground floor of them seeing you in a brand new light: stronger and even more dependable than before.
What will all of this mean for you? A lot of those lost people are going to be at your workplace and they're going to need help. This is the most direct, concrete manifestation of Venus' work on the world around you, so keep your eyes open. You might assist some coworkers with a project they're working on, or pitch in after hours. Don't break your back helping everyone else, but this is an excellent place for you to focus your energies. Keep your eyes open for those who are struggling. In addition to the good karma of helping your fellow human, it's all going to shine back at you by the summer. This is the first step towards promotions, new responsibilities, and everyone seeing you for the great person you are.
