This is how February’s solar eclipse will affect your zodiac sign

We’ve reached the time of year when we’re completely and utterly focused on love. Thanks to Valentine’s Day, it can feel like it’s all we’re thinking about, especially by the time mid-February strikes. Thankfully, the holiday coincides with an exciting cosmic event in 2018. On February 15th, we have a solar eclipse and new moon in Aquarius, an energetic portal that can help propel us forward into a magical life of our crafting. An eclipse is an energetic doorway; when we step through this portal, we’re able to receive expansive opportunities for the next 6 to 12 months. If you’ve been looking for that next phase of your life to start, or for something to shift to create additional openings, then thank your lucky stars.

Since the solar eclipse also falls on a new moon in the sign of humanitarian and trailblazing Aquarius, we have an extra boost to really set our sights on the bigger picture this next month. Since new moons are the start of the moon’s 28-day cycle, we can use this one to set a firm foundation to manifest our dreams into reality — with the help of the eclipse.

In case you wanted even more guidance on how to do just that, astrologer Amelia Quint, horoscope queen for Coveteur and founder of The Midheaven, breaks down how each sign can expect this solar eclipse to influence them.

Fire signs (Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius)

A fire is lighting, do you feel it? Amelia says,

"This eclipse could make a major connection with someone under this eclipse, or revive a relationship that's lost its spark. It's an amazing collaboration, whether it's with a friend, lover, or mentor."

Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn)

For earth signs, this is all about stability in your career. Amelia explains,

"This will start work towards a big career goal, thanks to the eclipse. A new job or accomplishment sets you on the path towards a five-year plan that you never would have expected."

Air signs (Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius)

For air signs, it’s all about doing something new. Amelia says,

"This eclipse marks the beginning of an exciting new adventure. Whether it's going on a literal journey, taking up a new course of study, or starting a new creative project, this quest is going to transform you!"

Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces)

For water signs, this eclipse is all about the more subtle realm. Amelia explains,

"This will be doing most of the work of this eclipse, behind-the-scenes. What happens now helps you wipe your emotional slate clean so you can start fresh. You could also be trying out new healing therapies and new forms of spirituality."

We hope this solar eclipse and new moon usher in opportunities that allow you to make your dreams a reality.
