February 2018 — Focusing on Venus Moving into Pisces! Supermoon creates Drama!
By Gwynne Mayer
How do you approach your ‘love nature’? I bet many of you do not even know that there are different kinds of ‘love processes’ that you go through. We all have ‘Eros’, a longing for that perfect union, that perfect soul mate! But what is it about each of us that keeps that longing from manifesting? The answer, in my not-so-humble opinion is that once we have found the external ‘love’, then the inner Self suffers, because we give over our love nature to the ‘other’ rather than cherishing and working with our ‘inner Eros’. We can have it all if we so choose, but we cannot make one more important than the other. If we do so we get lost in our co-dependency and addictions to finding that ‘other’ to complete us, as if we are not whole without the ‘other’. There is not ‘right way’ of doing all of this, there are just ‘contemplations’ that need to take place and using good sense in order not to give away the power of your ‘self/Self’.

Remember to read your Ascendant (ego/physical body), Sun (Spiritual/mind) and Moon (emotional/feeling/nurturing) signs in that order when reading these monthly updates.
So let’s get started on your Sun, Ascendant and Moon for February:
Aries — The ‘love’ nature of Aries is one of independence and interconnectedness through that independence. If the Aries is finding that he/she is depending on another, the hidden feelings and intensity go through the body in lightening force causing one to grieve on an inner level for not feeling complete with the ‘other’. The Aries continues to dream of the perfect union, very seldom does he/she allow for this to come about in reality. Aries needs to come forward with his/her feelings and call to the ‘love’ in his/her life.
Taurus — The ‘love’ nature of the Taurus is one of sensuality, sexuality and feeling nature combined into a force all of its own. Taurus needs a sensual connection to his/her love and if that is not present, then the love nature becomes very mental and possessive because it is in ‘name only’. Many Taureans will disagree with this, however it has been my experience that they need to see and feel the love, not be told with no proof in sight! Something to consider is to find someone of like mind who automatically fits into the love image.
Gemini — The ‘love’ nature of the Gemini these days is betwixt and between, not wanting to make mistakes, but longing to have the perfect ‘one’. It is a difficult situation when, just as you declare your ‘love’, your mind wavers and you judge your own ability to be in an intimate connection. Patience my dear Geminis! You are growing into a meeting of mind and matter, in that you are learning how to be present within yourself and know how you feel/love with that intensity of yours and not send double messages. It confuses the very thing that you want in your life and pulls you away from your ‘love life’.
Cancer — The ‘love’ nature of the Cancer is one of nurturing, and constant giving of energies, however when it comes time to receive ‘love’, the Cancer is often at a loss….the issues around receptivity and allowing equal nurturing as one gives goes ‘wanting’. It would help all Cancers to learn about how the communication of emotional behaviors are read by the loved one. The question the Cancer needs to as self, is if the giving is reciprocal and the loving emotions and feelings are being returned. These are the times to cuddle by the fire and feel warm both externally and internally.
Leo — The ‘love’ nature of the Leo wants proof that the ‘loved one’ is as powerful and as equal to the lioness or lion in question. Leo loves and respects one who has a handle on his/her own inner authority and is not succumbing to some addictive behaviors in order to get that authority. Being in love with Leo is like being in a huge ‘soap opera’ that never ends but keeps playing different angles and scenes to the ‘love story’. One has to be able to keep up and be entertained and entertaining in order to hold the Leo’s attention. Don’t forget the element of romance when working with the Leo….it works both ways, so Leos need to be also romantic and seductive!
Virgo — The ‘love’ nature of the Virgo is totally devoted to the service of others and their needs, often forgetting their own needs. They are great partners because they are always ready to help in their devotion to processing the needs of the partnership. The practicality abound with all Virgos and they are constantly processing the needs of all those around them. Learning to have compassion and not get lost in their brilliant processing and analyzing is the big lesson for them in love and other matters of the heart. Maybe it would be a good idea to let their hearts lead the way occasionally.
Libra — The ‘love’ nature of the Libra is one of intense partnership and equality. The loving nature of the Libra will not be present unless ‘all things are equal’ within the partnership and oftentimes concern about the way others see them is even more important than the way the Libra sees the situation. It is important for the Libra to evaluate his/her own worth and not depend totally on the ‘other’s thoughts and feelings to find that ‘self-worth’. The perfect relationship is available in the eyes of Librans if only the perfect justice and equal partner shows up!
Scorpio — The ‘love’ nature of the Scorpio is one of intensity and feeling and during the period of Venus moving into Pisces, a very romantic nature to say the least! Their intense passion is often met with confusion from the partner, unless the partner has some equality in all of the areas of feeling, sensing and desire. If the ‘love’ nature of the Scorpio is not met with a perceived intensity, they will often bury themselves in secrecy and oftentimes jealousy covered over by criticism or just abandoning the situation. It isn’t easy for the Scorpio and even less so for those related to a Scorpio!
Sagittarius — The ‘love’ nature of the Sagittarius is a spiritual journey to say the least. They have loving spiritual connected to higher thinking and desires so it is important for those relating to a Sag to remember that it isn’t always the body and the sexual nature that turns them on as much as it is what is said and the higher influences of spiritual leanings. If you want to be loved by a Sag, spend more time outdoors, laughing, enjoying and soaking up nature. Be an adventurer and create surprises!!
Capricorn — The ‘love’ nature of the Capricorn is one of grounded, and sensual nature, very practical and earthy to say the least! Being family oriented and connected in all things ‘practical’ is a real ‘turn-on’ to the Capricorn so romance might not be on the head of their list of seductive things to do. Taking a trip, being responsible, standing in your own authority are all qualities greatly admired by our Capricorn friends. They are easy to love and to be loved if all above is handled!
Aquarius — The ‘love’ nature of the Aquarian is of the mind and being the ‘best friend’ they have ever had! Their love nature is often bound up with unconditional support and friendship and tends to be more platonic than not! They have a very intense nature and one that is hard to understand unless you are another Aquarian or at best a ‘Leo’. One must be willing to think ‘out of the box’ in order to attract and hold on to an Aquarian and at the same time be available emotionally and physically! Not an easy venue for these guys!!
Pisces — Pisces ‘love’ nature is one of a dreamy quality and highly romantic in nature. You can be loved by a Pisces and never know it as they tend not to come forth with romantic declarations, but their fantasy of you is one which would ‘blow your socks off’. Pisces is empathetic and picks up on all true emotions and can tell if they are loved or not, so it isn’t easy to just be romantic and expect all of that to work. Being in love, to a Pisces is a devotion and adoration that is indescribable. Take care of yourself and your boundaries as they are able to cross all of your walls!
