Aries Forecast for February 2014
By Susan Miller
February will give you a chance to catch your breath because Mercury, the planet of communication, transportation, negotiation, memory, commerce, contracts, and decisiveness will be retrograde, which means Mercury will now shut down for a rest. Before you groan, there are a few good parts to having Mercury backward in Aquarius from February 7 to 28. You may be one of the few signs that will enjoy this period, for it is sure to bring more than a few old friends into your life again. I say that because Mercury, the planet of news, negotiation, communication, commerce, deliberation, memory, and reflection (among other things) will be in your eleventh house of friendship when it begins its backward slide. Friends will be key, important players for you in February, and I believe you will like this emphasis very much.
You will enjoy the slower pace that this month will bring, so you'll have opportunities to have quality time with some of your friends. You'll also likely meet new people too, and so you will expand your circle. You've been very busy, and you need a few days where you can slack off and simply think - Mercury retrograde will allow you to do this. Your schedule will become more elastic because a number of cancellations and postponements will come up. A sudden opening on your schedule may feel like a gift - free time to direct precisely as you please.
You will be able to finish up a lot of loose ends and put projects to bed whenever Mercury is retrograde. You may also find things. A treasure that you assumed you lost will be found now, or one that you completely forgot about will suddenly show up. You may also find that you will fit into clothes that you haven't been able to wear in many months (or years) now that you've lost weight. People and situations from your past will come up now for a reason, and this time, you will enjoy the serendipity of it all.
Yes, you will feel frustrations, specifically in that certain deals that you want to move quickly, won't, and people will be hard to reach or indecisive. You should not sign an important contract this month. Venus, which was also retrograde last month, turned direct on January 31, and that will actually help your financial picture - something you may have already seen to be true as early as late last month.
The start to this year has been tricky, as next month, your ruling planet, Mars, will go retrograde from March 1 until May 19. Not only is Mars the booster rocket to all new ventures and relationships (ensuring their success by providing the right momentum from the inception), but Mars is also your ruling planet. A ruling planet's job is to take good care of you, so when Mars sleeps from March 1 to May 19, you may feel like things are simply not moving as fast as you need them to move. Do you sign a contract when your ruler, the red planet Mars, is retrograde? You may have no choice but to do so, for Mercury retrograde, in February, would be a worse time to sign. Can you wait until after Mars goes direct on May 19? That would be ideal, but don't wait too long. Shortly after Mars regains footing, Mercury will retrograde again from June 7 to July 1. Use the window that will open from May 20 to 31, with the best days coming May 29-31. Cosmic storms run through the first week of July, so you would have to wait until mid-July if you cannot take that opportunity in late May. Your other choice would be to sign in the first four days of February.
The point I want to leave with you is that you don't need all aspects to be perfect to get good results. You just have to be more vigilant to make sure that your details are done "just so" and that you also don't become distracted or disorganized. You can't get overly enthusiastic when discussing a new deal, and in your haste to start, you may leave too much money on the table. It will be easy to get carried away with the spirit of the moment.
I agree you can't sign any papers in February, and if you do tempt fate this month, later you will just have to renegotiate the venture all over again. It's a bad time to buy electronic equipment, gadgets, computers, or machines (and no, you cannot buy a car or a refrigerator.) If the item is well made, it might be that your judgment was off, and you will buy the wrong model for your needs. Hold off on buying anything electronic. If you buy clothing, you will have a high probability of needing to exchange or return the garment, so carefully file receipts so you can find them if you should change your mind and send your purchases back to the store.
Computers and machines, furniture, and jewelry tend to show wear and tear when Mercury retrogrades, so you may need to bring your item to the repair shop. We also tend to lose things during Mercury retrograde. If, for example, you love your sunglasses, leave them home and wear the pair that is not quite your favorite - it is so easy to get distracted and lose things. I find I have a rule - I say to myself, "Take off your earrings, Susan, once you get inside a taxi cab, especially at night?" I find the collar of my coat may cause my earring to fall off and then it's gone. I also deliberately put gloves and sunglasses securely into my handbag or tote, not on the seat next to me, so that I have them when I leave the taxi! You need to be deliberate.
The new moon that occurred on January 30 will still be very strong as you start February, and that new moon will bubble up lots of social excitement. From the moment February begins, that new moon will open you up to many new people and events. That new moon was in Aquarius, an air sign, and air will invigorate your fire sign element. That new moon is still bursting with sweet energy, as Uranus sent a beautiful beam to the Sun and new moon. Take all invitations seriously and plan to go to as many parties and gatherings as you can. It's also an ideal time to join new social media venues or to get more active in one, and to also join real-life groups.
You may decide to do a humanitarian or charity project early this month, as the strong emphasis on Aquarius, the sign of compassion for those in society who have been overlooked and who suffer, may bring you an opportunity to make a difference. You may accept a big post, heading up a committee, or do something small, such as to join a 5K race for the cure.
If your birthday falls on March 31, or you have Aries rising near 11 degrees, you will benefit the most from the new moon that I have just talked about, the one that will be strong in the first half of February. You will also notice the good energy of this new moon if you have a natal planet at 11 degrees (plus or minus five degrees) of Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius, and next in line, if you have a natal planet in Gemini, Libra, or Aquarius, with the same plus or minus five-day tolerance.
In love, you have some superb aspects, especially for Valentine's Day. This year, this day for lovers will fall on a full moon in luxury-minded Leo (26 degrees) February 14. If you have a sweetheart, or if you married to your sweetheart, you will likely to go out to a special, four-star restaurant (as an example). Or, your partner may surprise you with a beautiful gift you'd not have bought for yourself. With the full moon falling on Valentine's Day, emotions will be passionate and loving. This friendly full moon will contact Mars in Libra (the marriage sign), and remarkably, Mars (your ruler) will be IN your seventh house of marriage, so many Aries will talk of making a forever, ever commitment to each other mid-month.
A note to my readers in Brazil: I know your Valentine's Day is June 12, so even though February 14 will not be a day for lovers in your city, you can celebrate this lovely day and ensuing weekend on any scale that seems right for you. This full moon in Leo will be simply delicious, and will be ideal for treating yourself to a little special pampering. This full moon will be the only one of 2014 to light your house of true love, so it's a wonderful time to find the right person to love or to celebrate the love you already have found.
All full moons send a blast of energy that you can feel plus or minus four days from February 14. Still, February 14 will be a Friday, so I feel you will experience the glow through the ensuing weekend, February 15-16, too. Perhaps you will travel a short way for a romantic short weekend. If your birthday falls on April 14, plus or minus five days, you will feel this full moon the most.
If you work in a creative profession, or support creative staff, you'll be dancing on the tables near the full moon in highly creative Leo on February 14, for by then a project will be coming to a finish and all the world will be able to see the results. Mars, your ruler and planet of high energy, will be beautifully oriented to that full moon, giving you plenty of energy and enthusiasm. Another wonder-day for developing new creative ideas, or showing them, with be the five-star day of the month, February 28, due to the fine angle of the Sun and Jupiter. This is a day to circle in gold.
In terms of money, keep track of checks you are writing, as you may write for more than you have in your account on February 11, 14, and 18. You seem to have a lot of bills to pay. However in your enthusiasm to clear the decks and mail those checks, you may not realize you don't have enough to cover them. Your heart is in the right place, and you do have money about to come in - just keep doing the math when you mail payments out. Venus' turn direct on January 31 will help your cash flow quite a bit, because Venus controls your house of earned income. By February 28, news about your income may get even better, especially if you work in a creative field. It appears you are moving on to a better financial track, so stay happy!
The next new moon, due February 28 / March 1, will be in Pisces 11 degrees, and it will appear in your house of secrets and privacy. You may now embark on developing a project important to you in private, such as to work on a thesis or a screenplay, or to begin sketching a new designer collection, as a few examples. On this new moon, Mercury will go direct, so any frustrations you may have suffered through earlier in the month will be lifted and the pace will pick up. This new moon in Pisces will be about stepping back, reflecting on how things are going, and plotting a new course.
Jupiter will be in ideal angle to that new moon of February 28 / March 1, suggesting that if you have to make any changes in your living situation, you can find that darling new apartment, sell a house, or buy one. Jupiter will be on hand to help you every step of the way, and Mercury will be direct then too, allowing you to sign papers. If you need new furniture or a gorgeous new rug, that's when you'll want to start shopping!
At the very end of the month, on February 28, Jupiter will trine the Sun, an aspect that is considered quite divine. This is fantastic day for love, equal to or even better than Valentine's Day! It's time to go out, dear Aries, and it matters not if you are married or single! This is one Friday night you must promise me to mix and mingle - it is surely not the night to stay home by the fireplace! The warmth you find on February 28 need not come from the fireplace, but in the faces of those you are with and the happy feelings you share together.
The pressure on you, mainly, lifts in February, and you will be thankful. Last month brought serious discussions about your career, but this month's relaxed pace will fit in perfectly with your need to relax and socialize. You also will have time to reflect on how things are going, and what choices you'll be making soon.
Mercury will be retrograde in your friendship sector from February 6 to 28, bringing old friends back on the scene. You'll enjoy catching up and finding out where they stand today. You may have had to neglect some of your friends to keep your career advancing, but you can now lavish much more time and attention on them too - arrange to see them for dinner soon. At work, you seem not to mind hearing that a certain work project will slow down - you need a break in the action, and this would be a good time to take it.
One of the best moments of the month will be the full moon in warmhearted Leo on February 14. This full moon brings your ruler, Mars, in elegant angle to the full moon, Sun, and Mercury, lighting your house of true love brilliantly on Valentine's Day. You seem to have gathered up all the stars in the sky, hidden them in your pocket, and will spill them all over the velvet blue sky Valentine's Day.
With Mars so friendly, if not dating, you now have a good chance of meeting someone new on or very near Valentine's Day. If you are attached, you may experience a bewitching episode with the one you care for deeply. If you are ready, by month's end you may give a proposal or receive a beautiful diamond ring. If you can wait to shop, all the better - Mercury is retrograde! Ideally, I like the third week in July or first part of August for an engagement or marriage.
Mars is traveling through your house of marriage and partnership and will show up the differences between you, not the parts you share in common. Keep focused on why you love being together, and emphasize those when you have an off moment.
If you've had relationship problems, you can find a meeting of the minds this month, as your planets will be loving and kind. One perfect time to bury the hatchet would be on February 14, when Mars will be in ideal angle to the Sun, ruler of your house of true love. You may have not seen eye-to-eye on a certain sticky topic lately, but if you try a new approach and you may be amazed at how easily you are able to dissolve a thorny issue. Venus, planet of love, was retrograde last month but went direct on January 31, so February brings a whole new and much improved setting for love.
The month ends on a grand note. Stay alert, for you'll be able to locate an exciting home-related "find" on February 28 when Jupiter will align with the Sun. You may find the perfect apartment, dining room table, or stylish living room accessory - whether you are searching for a big or small answer to your home-related question, you will find it then. You may also get extraordinary help from family at this time.
February 28 is special for another reason - good fortune Jupiter will contact the mighty Sun, a zinger of a wonderful day! This day could be the one when you meet your one-and-only. Cupid will be at your side, working hard for you. Be out and about, dear Aries! What a wonderful way to end the month.
Dates to Note for ARIES
Most romantic dates, and can be used for other purposes too (these are good days for you): February 7, 8, 12, 13, 14, 22, and 28.
Mercury will be retrograde February 6 to February 28.
Spend the first two weeks of February seeing friends and catching up. You will enjoy your time with them, thanks to the new moon that appeared January 30.
Mars in opposition to your Sun will test your ability to compromise with your partner, from now through July 25. You like to be in charge, but right now, you can't be, so go with the flow.
On February 11, 14, and 18 make sure you have enough funds in your checking account before you write the check.
The full moon, February 14, Valentine's Day, will light your house of love brilliantly. If attached, you can expect a heavenly evening. You may want to give a party or attend one, thanks to the beautiful collaboration between Mars and the Sun. This is a four-star full moon for you!
Talks with a VIP over company benefits, like health insurance, vacation days, and the like, should go very well February 24 when Venus and Saturn collaborate.
The new moon of February 28 in Pisces will give you time to rest and catch your breath. It's time to reflect on what you hope for your new birthday year.
A four-star aspect, Jupiter in ideal alignment to the Sun, February 28, may bring great news about your living quarters or special help from family.
This same day, February 28, is a night to socialize, for it is one of the very finest days of the month. Whenever Jupiter combines energies with the Sun, you know the news being stirred up is going to be fantastic! Romance will bring all kinds of good luck, and your creativity will get a boost, too.

The Year Ahead 2014 Astrological Calendar
By Susan Miller
$17.99 plus shipping, any applicable tax
Calendars are used to mark time, but have you ever had a calendar that helped you use your time productively? My new Year Ahead 2014 Calendar can do just that. I write every word myself in this stunning calendar with original fine art by socialite, author, and fine artist Gloria Vanderbilt, mother of newsman Anderson Cooper, and great grandchild of railroad entrepreneur Cornelius Vanderbilt. (Grand Central Station was originally her great grandfather's business headquarters.)
Gloria Vanderbilt, now almost 90 years young, licensed the reproduction rights to her critically acclaimed artwork to Susan Miller who self-published her calendar. The inks are rich, the paper heavy, glossy, and snow white, allowing Gloria's paintings to jump off the page. Each month, from January 2014 though the extra bonus month, January 2015, is found an inspirational quote from Gloria, centering on her philosophy of living life fully and creatively. With fourteen of Gloria's paintings, this calendar will soon become a collector's edition and will not be reprinted when stocks are gone.
Aside from having happy, vibrant art to look at all year, The Year Ahead 2014 calendar has many other uses, unlike any you have had in a calendar before. On every important day of each month I list the aspect and what it means, in easy to understand laymen's language. This means the next time you are about to make an important appointment, and the VIP asks you, "Do you want to come in Monday or Thursday?" you can say you will consult your calendar, and know immediately the day to choose.
In a year like 2014, where sparkling aspects will stand side by side difficult ones, this calendar will not be a luxury but a necessity.
Also included in the calendar are:
- All the start and end dates of the retrograde planets in 2014,
- Detailed discussion of the new and full moons (new!)
- The date when planets move into new signs (and how long they will be in that sign), all listed on the same day entry
- The planetary aspects of the four eclipses due in 2014, and explanation of what each eclipse will bring.
No more surprises! Be in the know about upcoming events, so that you can plan your biggest initiations. This calendar is a "must" to keep with you all year, and is available here, from Susan's publisher, but not in bookstores or other retailers. Get it now, while you can: $17.99 plus tax and shipping. We ship to all nations of the world: http://bit.ly/186zM0i
A New Service: WiFive.us
Don't we all love a bargain?
In December, when each of us are busy and shopping for gifts, we all want to know about the deals being offered nearby in our neighborhoods to save money. I found a way when a brilliant entrepreneur, Luis Sanchez, came to see me to show me he had developed a way of seeing all the various deal-of the-day websites that are featuring discounts on food, entertainment, boutiques, and other establishments, all in one click. Traveling? All you need to do is enter the zip code of your new neighborhood as you travel each day and you can see the deals that may be just across the street from your hotel.
The company is called Wifive.us and is ready to use today. It is a New York-based startup with a location-based search engine that gives you access to thousands of local online deals in a single site.
For now, Wifive.us is only available in the United States. It covers most of deals services you would see from various sources, (Groupon, Amazon, Google deals, and so forth), all at once, so you don't have to go from site to site to find a deal that appeals to you, as Luis would humorously say, "until your head hurts." There is no registration necessary, and no useless emails to stuff your inbox each day.
Just type your address or ZIP code and get the deals you want when you want them. You pull in your information, which is far better than having many emails pushed to you. Try it and like the service on Facebook!
A word about the web address of Wifive.us
You may be wondering, what exactly is .US?
You might have thought the domain ending .us would only be only for government agencies and schools, but since 2002, individuals, businesses, churches, and non-profits have adopted .us web addresses to make their mark on the Internet. The .US is a new domain ending.
Just remember the name of the new service that no doubt you will be using quite a bit: pronounced as "wi-five-dot-us" otherwise seen as:

If you have been reading my column for a while, you know I am very picky about which companies I endorse. If you want to lose weight, I feel this is the easiest, most fun way to do it. Each day Chefs Diet will deliver farm fresh, healthy foods to your door. In the past it used to be that only those living in New York City and Los Angeles had this option, but now, through new shipping technology, UPS and FedEx have been working with Chefs Diets to find ways to ship and still keep your food as fresh as it was when it left the Chefs Diet kitchens. I simply cannot get over how delicious and carefully prepared these meals are day after day. Meals won't repeat for 90 days so you will love the variety!
You will get three meals a day, with breakfast and dinner a hot meal, and lunch a cold one for convenience. You will also get two satisfying snacks. Best of all, you can change your menu if you see something on the program you'd like to change by very simply logging on to your account and choosing a different meal from the pull down menu. If you have special dietary needs, you can choose the right program for you from the options on the Chefs Diet website. I am NOT diabetic, but I saw that that the diabetic menu had lots of protein to keep me feeling peppy from dawn to the wee hours of the morning. (If you are on social media, you see I often post in the middle of the night - a writer's work is never done.) I love knowing that if I just eat the food given to me each day I will lose weight. There is no thinking, no shopping, no weighing foods or adding points - so easy!
Television producers have told me they rely on Chefs Diets when an actor, male or female, needs to lose weight for a role. It was through that comment of a top producer that I originally found this great company.
Of course, you should always check with your doctor before starting any new dietary program.
For your special discount, call Michael McDonnell (and it MUST be Michael) at 800.585.1329 and you must also mention my name, Susan Miller. You will be given a special introductory discount for a week of meals, so you can see how delicious they are! You will love Chefs Diet! Many famous actors that you see in the movies have these.
I am on the program now because two years ago I broke my femur and had to lie very still until my leg healed. I could not opt to have the femur operated on due to my body's proclivity to bleed excessively in my left leg. (I have already had 40 transfusions in my life.) My leg took a year to recover. During that time it was impossible not to gain a bit of weight (I was bed-bound and could barely move an inch). Now, on the Chefs Diet program, I love being able to fit in my smaller clothes!
Have a look at the Chefs Diet website, http://www.ChefsDiet.com
