Here's what the stars have in store for you in your February 2019 horoscope.
Chiron, the comet that represents the wounded healer in all of us, makes its way out of a Pisces retrograde and into Aries on February 18th, where it’s going to stay until 2027. We’re now being urged to stand up for ourselves, especially in the face of maltreatment, bullying, and harmful judgment. Instead of going into a rage when the world rages on us, we’re asked to patientlyconsider how hurt people hurt people. Compassion is key in the face of aggression. Change kicks in but in an unexpected and mindful way.
You have no problem putting yourself out there—do that pre-Valentine’s Day to secure your February 14 plans. Come V-Day though, remember that relationships involve give and take. It can’t be ME ME ME all the time. When Venus and Saturn get together on the 18th, you’ll figure out what you want out of love and life.
Style tip: Try some tech and go for a laser treatment to up your beauty game.
Cast a wider net this month when it comes to your dating life. Venus sits in Capricorn from Febraury 3rduntil the end of the month—you’re encouraged to break out of your comfort zone, no matter how much you resist. Flirting abilities go full force during the Virgo full supermoon on the 19th.
Style tip: Go for a sheer, shimmery lip and get those puckers noticed.
Geminis in relationships may find themselves getting antsy during Venus-Uranus trine on February 2nd. Give yourself some Me Time so you can get your personal affairs in order pre-V-Day.

Style tip: Take your wandering eye to the salon and get a lush hair treatment instead.
Face it, you’ve been wanting to DTR for a while now and Venus and Saturn are calling you out on it. Assess your status seriously after all the Valentine’s hoopla is over. Do some hard reflecting on what you want out of a committed relationship. Do you really want to get serious with the one you’re with? Give it a lot of thought.
Style tip: Microblading those brows is one commitment you won’t regret.
You’re going to learn how to bide your time patiently this month, Leo. As Mercury enters Pisces on February 10th, you may experience a lot of starts and stops when it comes to your relationships. See them through and don’t give up. That huge heart of yours is more resilient than you think.

While you may plan to celebrate Valentine’s Day in relative peace, you may find your temper flaring up uncharacteristically around this time of year.

Style tip: Tame this month’s insatiable need to blurt everything out with a toned down, nude lippie.
It may be the month of hearts, but your mind is off love and more on money.
