Real Horoscopes: See Your February Style Forecast
Originality is the name of the game this February, as the Sun blazes a trail through innovative Aquarius until the 18th. Apply the “new year, new you” mantra to your sartorial choices. This is the month we all get to revamp our signature styles — and just in time to pose for those Fashion Week selfies, or better yet, get snapped by the street style photographers in attendance. Read on to see what’s in store for your sign.
Aquarius | January 20 – February 18
Happy birth month to you, Aquarius! The Sun is shimmering in your sign until February 18, refreshing your perspective on, well, everything. You’ve grown so much since your last circle around le Soleil, so how about a 2017 wardrobe reboot? Upgrade with travel-friendly pieces because this is a year of global exploration and expansion for your sign. Stock up on athleisure while you’re at it. With your sporty side at the wheel, dashing out for an afternoon run or noon yoga class could become a daily habit. Venus and Mars also bring some on-the-go energy to the month so house your mobile gadgets in stylish cases and bags. Flirty vibes — even just for fun — are swirling in the air, but a relationship could stick near the eclipse on February 10. Accessories are your everything: Snazz up casual clothes with rings and bracelets — especially since the month could bring a whole lot of hand-holding or swiping right!

Pisces | February 19 – March 20
Time for a closet edit! Until the 18th, the Sun is beaming through your twelfth house of transitions — an ideal time to downsize and declutter. Let go of anything that’s “so 2016” or can’t be tailored for a proper fit. After you’ve emptied some hangers, curate a couple classic pieces that have a romantic edge to them, like a silk blouse or ruffled blazer. May we suggest some swimwear as well? Escaping to the beach can help you recharge — even before Pisces Season (your birthday time, hey, hey!) begins on the 18th. Make sure you have enough basics in your wardrobe too. With celestial stylist Venus in your earthy and practical second house, stock up on foundation garments to wear under those clingier fabrics. Eyeing a new piece of furniture? Opt for elegant natural elements like wood or stone to bring a grounding energy to your home.

Aries | March 21 – April 19
Break out your best heels, Aries — and a pair of ballet flats too. February is going to be a seriously social month, with you playing the girl (or guy) about town. Until the 18th, the Sun will cruise through Aquarius and your communal eleventh house putting a high premium on QT with friends. Before you hop in your Uber, make sure your look is picture perfect: You could be a popular guest star on your friends’ Instagram feeds. While you’re at it, how about hosting a dinner party or two? Add a few new knick knacks around the house. We all could use a new print or a cute little bench to liven up the décor, right? Another style booster comes from fashion-forward Venus, who will grace Aries and your first house of self-expression from February 3 to April 2. Red is your signature hue, so work it in often — or play with its on-trend cousin, pink. Once you’ve nailed your look, set up a photoshoot!

Taurus | April 20 – May 20
How’s that corner office treating you, Taurus? Until the 18th, the Sun is blazing through Aquarius and your ambitious tenth house, so polish up your resumé and your work wardrobe. Think: A tailored blazer, a fabulous navy pea coat, walkable-but-chic black power pumps, and an amazing leather bag. February is always the month of amour— and definitely for you, Taurus, as your ruling planet Venus takes a tour of your fantasy-fueled twelfth house from February 3 to April 2. Getting swept up in a fairy tale romance is just what the universe has on tap. Surrender and enjoy the sweetness of new love. Already found The One? Create more space on the calendar for date nights out — the perfect excuse to rock a chic LBD under that blazer. You’ll want a look that goes from day to night to late night because you could head straight from the office to gallery openings, theater performances, and of course, a sweet table for two.

Gemini | May 21 – June 20
Pack that Louis Vuitton weekender and say, “Bon voyage!” The Sun flows through your ninth house of travel until the 18th, activating your wanderlust. Devise a signature look for flying the friendly skies in style, like a chic tunic topped with a leather jacket. Socially, February will be nonstop. Go out often — not that we have to twist your statement-sleeved arm, here, right? Whether single or spoken for, you’ll enjoy bantering (translation: flirting madly) with so many interesting people. Hey, maybe that cute photographer at a runway show will catch your eye. Attract a reciprocal stare with attention-grabbing accessories, like a giant pair of statement earrings. The eleventh house also rules technology so spruce up your gadgets. Who knows: The genius at the Apple Bar could be Ryan Gosling’s twin. After the 18th, your career kicks into high gear. Update your professional wardrobe with a few staples, whether you’re an executive or a touring rockstar. It could be either — or both — knowing you, Gemini!

Cancer | June 21 – July 22
Slip on the caftan and disappear behind the scenes. The Sun saunters through your ultra private and seductive eighth house until February 18 giving you permission to go a little MIA. Rejuvenate with some unapologetic “me time,” then curate a list of visitors. A dear old friend could crash on your couch — or you could be cuddled up there with a special someone for hours on end. When you do emerge, channel your inner femme fatale and be mysterious and simmering in noir. (A good excuse to put movies like Double Indemnity and Sunset Boulevard in the Netflix queue.) Alas, you can’t spend the whole month sipping martinis in a silk robe. With glamorous Venus in your career zone from the 2nd on, you’ll also be required to socialize professionally. Menswear-inspired pieces call your name. Just make sure you check the fit: A new powersuit can do wonders, so long as it’s cut just right. Ditch the boxy blazer for one with a ruffled and romantic spin.

Leo | July 23 – August 22
Love, love, love — it’s what’s on your mind this month, Leo, with the Sun twirling through your seventh house of relationships until the 18th. While you’re thinking in pairs, how about applying that mindset to your wardrobe? Play with pantsuits or go head-to-toe monochromatic, or matchy-matchy. Reach for bright colors and fluffy faux furs. (You, of all signs, can pull this off.) You want to stand out as much as possible near the Leo eclipse on the 10th, when the spotlight falls directly on you! If you haven’t had a getaway in a while, pack your oversized suitcase and dig up your passport. You’re due for a romantic trek as Venus and Mars will be co-piloting through your ninth house of travel all month. If you’re taking the journey solo (or, you’re going to NYFW) you could meet your match at the swim-up or hotel bar.

Virgo | August 23 – September 22
Resolution check-in time! Have you flagged on your fitness kick, Virgo? With the Sun flexing in your wellness zone until February 18, you’ll have plenty of motivation for those body-loving goals. Get some much-needed fit-spo by downloading apps and even getting a little more decked out for the gym. Trade the tired yoga pants for patterned leggings — and even weave more athleisure into your everyday gear, like a pair of high-tops. Look to your kitchen too. When was the last time you bought a new pan? Cooking healthy meals can be highly entertaining when you have the right tools. And there’s more reason for feeling great in the skin you’re in: On February 2, Venus embarks on a two-month tour through your seductive eighth house. Stock up on sultry lingerie looks or add a new moto jacket for your nights out. The key shade for you? Black. A little noir is all you need to see sparks fly.

Libra | September 23 – October 22
More sequins, please! With the Sun touring your fifth house of self-expression and pleasure until February 18, this is your month to shine. Be more theatrical with your wardrobe. Treating every day like a costume party can banish the winter blahs. Add a statement fur (real or faux) to your daily repertoire. With NYFW coinciding, this is the perfect time to show off your new sparkles. You may even want to pull out a formal dress for the step and repeats — and make sure to do your turn in front of the street style photogs. From February 2 on, cosmic lovebirds Venus and Mars share a flight path through your seventh house of marriage and relationships. Whether you’re single or spoken for, Cupid’s slinging arrows all month long. Pull together more date night pieces — you could paint the town crimson with your arm candy!

Scorpio | October 23 – November 21
It’s nesting time, Scorpio, so head back to the hibernation station. With the Sun hunkered down in your domestic fourth house until the 18th, the décor bug is bound to bite. Refresh your space with pretty accents before you think about a total overhaul. A mid-century chair, a bright coat of paint, or a patterned rug can give a room new life. An oversized cashmere sweater is a must this month, along with cozy accents like an oversized scarf. Before February is over, invite your inner circle to Chateau Scorpio for one of your unforgettable dinner parties. Photos of your fun fetes could become Instagram legends. With stylist Venus in your “all natural” sixth house this month, dabble with a neutral palette and embrace the eco-chic ethos with natural fibers and clean lines. While you’re at it, hunt for a sustainable workout bag and a BPA-free water bottle to tote to your Pilates class.

Sagittarius | November 22 – December 21
You’re here, you’re there, you’re everywhere! With February’s buzzy social calendar, you could be out from dawn ’til dusk. (Restaurant openings! Record release parties! Runway shows!) Until the 18th, the Sun is zipping through your zone of short journeys — and every day could feel like a mini trip. Be ready for literally anything, including a change of shoes and clothes, with an oversized bag that can fit your many essentials: laptop, yogawear, sexy evening top. And if you’re hitting the fashion shows, leave some room in there for your gift bag! With Venus and Mars two-stepping through your glamorous fifth house, get the formal gown ready. An exclusive Oscars party invite could be coming — or, you might be hosting your own fete. Fancier pieces, like investment jewelry, are up for consideration. Go ahead, Sagittarius, splurge a little.

Capricorn | December 22 – January 19
Ready, set, simplify! Take it back to the basics this February, Capricorn. With the Sun flowing through your “responsibly decadent” second house, skip the fast fashion fixes that will only clutter up your closet. Instead, focus on building a wardrobe of essentials that will last for years. Think clean lines: a black pencil skirt, a cashmere sweater, a tuxedo jacket — chic, yet ideal for work. And if you have to spend a little more to nail the right quality, so be it. They’re called investment pieces for a reason, Capricorn — and your sign likes longevity. Bonus idea: Scout out a tailor who can nip and tuck the fabric to fit your form. Decorista Venus is nesting in your domestic zone for most of the month. If your quarters feel cramped, hang mirrors to open up each room. A wool rug, a corner table or accent vase can also do wonders. Show off your new finds with a cocktail party — a great excuse to snag some new barware.
