A Note from Susan Miller
February will be quiet an exciting month, dotted with special days to bring you a variety of opportunities and good news. January was difficult for some readers, but February should be a happy little month packed full of twinkling stars to lift your spirits.
My Astrology Zone pop-up shop appeared in Bloomingdale’s last month and will run through March 1. This is a highpoint of my career, and a project I have thoroughly enjoyed. I worked with many of Bloomingdale’s executives in many departments since last summer—the resulting shop is breathtakingly beautiful. My store is part of the “Carousel” concept found on the main floor in four of their stores.
Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
This is your month to have fun. You’ve been working hard and perhaps have put others first, but in February, save time to enjoy for yourself. You may have had a chance to travel in January, and February will hold those same possibilities for you in the first half of the month. It is highly possible you will travel to see family, most likely to visit a parent or sibling.
Lately you’ve been very focused on deciding about a home or family matter, and while you will keep that focus all year, February and March will be the most special. Mars is heading to your fourth house of home on February 16 to stay until March 30. Mars’ friends will be there to greet him, namely Saturn, Pluto, and Jupiter, the latter being the giver of gifts and luck. With a total of four energetic planets in this area of your chart (now including Mars), if you have to move or want to lease or buy real estate, this will be the best time for you to do so in over a decade.
You don’t need to move to make changes, you could instead make repairs, de-clutter, paint a room or two, decorate with new furniture or a rug, or buy new dishes and other attractive accessories for entertaining. If you need a new roommate, interview candidates at the very top of the month, and be decisive.
There is something you should keep in mind: In the middle of this gorgeous trend, Mars’ little brother, Mercury, will go retrograde from February 16 to March 9. This means you should not close on a house during that period (and I would leave a space of days before and after the start and end dates of Mercury retrograde). It is never wise to sign any legal documents during these periods—later you may regret something about the agreement, and it usually is something you never saw coming. While Mercury is retrograde, you may lose a bid on a house, but then find something you like even better afterwards. Things change quite a bit, so go with the flow.
