After going through your routine for days, weeks, and months, it can be way too easy to turn off your brain and just coast on autopilot. But you owe your brain more than that. You can't let it go to waste. If you aren't feeling challenged, then do whatever you can to challenge yourself today. Attempt a new activity. Try a new hobby. See if you can learn how to cook something complicated. Put some goals in place and see how quickly you can reach them and impress yourself.
AquariusJan 20 – Feb 18
You are not one to spend a lot of time looking back, but at the start of the week your head is in the history books. Or it's in some of your old journals. Or you're asking an old relative a lot of prying questions. Something tells you there are relevant lessons for you somewhere in the past – and you're right. Someone who shares your interest in history might turn into a romantic interest overnight (on Wednesday or Thursday), and Friday will be romantic as well. Small projects around the house will occupy your weekend.
The sun is in your airy sign to start the month, giving you the freedom that you crave. Even if you have to check in with someone from time to time—like a boss, parent, or partner—you still appreciate the feeling that you’re the only one steering the boat and making major decisions.
A Venus-Uranus square on February 7 brings some tension your way (especially in your love and money sectors), so hopefully you’re willing to fully embrace change. Very few things happen when you’re standing still, watching the world pass you by. This challenging energy encourages you to be a participant, not a bystander.
A Saturn-Uranus square on the seventeenth can produce some uncomfortable energy, making you glad that this aspect only happens once every 14 years. The changes happening now are ones that are being made for you, which are your least favorite kind. One of your worst nightmares is to have your imagination stifled, which could very well happen now.
The sun leaves your airy sign for the watery depths of Pisces on February 18, putting you far deeper into your feelings than you usually like to go. Although it’s nice to have an increased sense of sympathy, you feel kind of uncomfortable expressing any real feelings. Luckily, your daydreams are vivid now and can be used as a good distraction from reality.
