If you’re looking for a relationship, this is the time to put your profile up on an online dating site.
On Feb. 1, Venus enters Aquarius bringing positive energy for connecting with friends
and the community, especially through electronic means. If you have been dragging your feet about video conferencing, now it’s time to ask your 10-year-old nephew to help you get online.
On Feb. 12, the New Moon in Aquarius marks the Lunar New Year and the Year of the Metal Ox. This energy is about simplifying your life, going back to basics and rebuilding. In Ox years, it’s time to strap on the yoke and plow the fields. The work ahead is straightforward and simple, and there’s a lot of it! Success comes from hard work. (Check out my YouTube channel for video predictions for the Year of the Metal Ox.)

On Feb. 25, Venus, the planet of love, enters romantic Pisces. At the same time, action-oriented Mars makes a trine to obsessive Pluto. This combination can focus your attention on a single goal. While this could be a love relationship, it could also be an art project, a business venture or a topic of study.
