Featured Sign-Aquarius

From the 21st January to the 19th February the Sun travels through fixed air sign Aquarius, noted for its egalitarian nature, progressive ideas and humanitarian bent. Aquarius is the eleventh sign of the zodiac with keywords “I am different” and “I am detached”. Aquarians are both radical and immovable at the same time. They will often espouse a social or religious movement such as feminism, Buddhism or environmentalism and then remain committed to it for the rest of their lives. Those born under the sign of the Water Bearer often look to the future and have fine minds and a higher vision for society. Many Aquarians excel in the areas of science, technology and politics. At best they use their cool headed idealism to serve humanity. Negatively, Aquarians can be detached and aloof with a rebellious or fanatical streak. In medical astrology, Aquarius rules the calves, ankles and general circulation. When Aquarians are out of balance they can suffer from varicose veins, sprained ankles, irregularities of the heart action and fluid build-up. The Aquarian colours are turquoise, aqua and silver. Aquarius’s greatest lesson is to learn to care for and relate to individuals rather than groups.

Key Astrological Events – February


Mercury in Aquarius – Mental Brilliance

Mercury, the planet of ideas and communication, enters the brilliant and rebellious sign of Aquarius on Valentine’s Day and will remain there until early March. Emotions take a back seat to intellect during this time, and mental pursuits tend to be more appealing than spiritual ones. This is a great time to look at your life from a different angle, brainstorm new ideas and gain new perspective. The one thing to watch out for is hurting or neglecting other people's feelings while pondering all those brilliant ideas .... not the best strategy for Valentine’s Day!

Venus in Aquarius – Authentic Love

Relationship planet Venus moves into quirky air sign Aquarius on the 17th until mid-March, but when it comes to matters of the heart, Venus in Aquarius is somewhat aloof and uncomfortable with emotion, needing plenty of space. During the next month, you may find yourself increasingly intolerant of anyone who tries to smother, possess or control you while at the same time relishing

the joys of friendship, companionship and mental stimulation, especially in close relationships. You may find yourself committing to a social or political cause or attracted to a person who is not your usual physical type, but who fascinates and enchants you just the same! After all, isn’t that what true love is all about?


2016 - Year of the Red Fire Monkey Embrace Your Inner Child

The Chinese celebrate their New Year on the 8th on the eve of the February new moon and welcome the Year of the Fire Monkey. Those born in 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992 and 2004 are all born in the Year of the Monkey. Known for their curiosity, mischievousness, and cleverness, Monkeys are forever playful, witty, charming and crafty and love a practical joke. Even though their intentions are good, their desire to have fun at the expense of others can land them in some sticky situations. Most monkeys love children and animals and enjoy an active social life. They make good friends, fine neighbours and caring parents, mainly because of their love of communication. In business Monkeys are renowned for their creativity and problem-solving ability. They make good negotiators and excellent employees, being naturally conscientious. In love, Monkeys are naturally flirtatious, but no matter how far they roam, they always return to their favourite tree!

2016 will be a year when those born in the Year of the Monkey can really shine, both personally and professionally and overcome any recent setbacks or obstacles. For the rest of us 2016 is a year to get in touch with that mischievous inner child and be more light-hearted and playful.


February New Moon – Full Moon

Aquarius New Moon – Pool Your Gifts & Talents

The February new moon falls on the 9th in air sign Aquarius teaching us about the power of the collective and the importance of unified effort to reach a goal that benefits the group or community. An old African proverb says: 'If you want to go fast, go alone, but if you want to go far, go together.' As 2016 gets underway, think about how you could pool your gifts and talents with others and release control. With the new moon forming a stressful angle to wilful Mars, this could prove harder than it sounds!

Virgo Full Moon – Pathway to Healing

The February full moon falls on the 23rd in earth sign Virgo. With the Sun conjunct fantasy- prone Neptune opposite the Moon in sensible Virgo, there’s bound to be a clash between the need to be practical and hard-headed vs the desire to chase dreams and let your imagination run wild. Of course these two paths are not mutually exclusive – this full moon asks you to choose a dream that’s particularly close to your heart and then take practical steps to make it come true. The Virgo-Pisces polarity also opens the pathway to healing by providing an intrinsic and intuitive connection between body and soul.


February & March Moon Calendar

Launch projects at the New Moon, bring them to completion in the period from just before the Full Moon to the Third Quarter phase and wind them down and reflect on developments in the week before the next New Moon. The period between the New Moon and the Full Moon is the waxing moon (moon getting bigger and fuller). The period between the Full Moon and the New Moon is the waning moon (moon getting smaller and thinner). You can use this moon table to select the most favourable days to slow or increase hair regrowth. Full instructions can be found in my Lunar Hair Care guidelines at but to get you started I’ve marked the best dates for waxing/shaving to slow regrowth in yellow and the best dates to cut hair for thicker, lusher growth in green. If you’re serious about Lunar Hair Care - order your own Moon Calendar from the Stella Starwoman Store then you’ll know exactly what time of day the moon changes from one zodiac sign to the next meaning you can fine-tune your activities with confidence.
