Lets Dress in a New Perspective / by Michelle Goldfarb

When we think of the month of February, we bathe and cultivate a time of togetherness and community. This month is all about the Aquarian Sun. These creative souls like to wear clothing that is unique and different. Think layers, warm clothes and times were we are innovative in our closet.


On February 2nd., the moon begins her journey in Capricorn. She joins two other transpersonal planets, Saturn and Pluto. Both of these signs are powerful in their own way. Saturn is good at building foundations and also rules Capricorns, where as Pluto purifies all it touches. In addition to the Moon, we have the aspect Venus trine Uranus. Venus is in Sagittarius and Uranus is on its last leg in the sign of Aires.  Because there is harmony with these two planets, we are learning how to self -express ourselves. This is a great day to play with our pattern collection in our wardrobe.  Try mixing stripes and floral together, then toning it down with a nice neutral jacket, which then brings the outfit “down to earth”.


On February 3rd, Venus, planet of self-expression enters Capricorn. Venus will be the third planet to join the elite party. She will be joining Saturn and Pluto also in this authoritative sign. This trio of planets creates a force and strong bond of security. Not only do we feel this on a collective level, but its allowing us show up in a our daily lives with composure and grace.


February 4th, we have a New Moon in Aquarius.  She will be joining Mercury, our communication planet and the expressive Sun. This is going to add a very Uranian flavor to the energy in the cosmos.  Uranus is Aquarius’s ruler, which explains why this detached sign likes to wear clothing that has a shock value. Try putting on interesting sweater with a knee-length skirt and tall boots. This creates a look that plays with proportions and trends.


 February 7th, we have a positive aspect between the Sun in Aquarius and Jupiter in Sagittarius. It is a joining of Air and Fire, for a combination of positive explosion. Wear a bright sweater with a fun detailed sleeve, pair it with a ripped grey denim jean and complete the outfit with a funky bootie.


February 10th, Mercury, the fast moving planet enters into the gates of Pisces, bringing a softer and eloquent vibe to our speech. By Incorporating some longer skirts with tights, we create a wardrobe pallet that brings in a more feminine appeal.


February 12th, right before our most romantic day of the year, Valentines Day, we have Mars conjunct Uranus in Aires. Because Mars is the planet that rules Aires, we are going to feel this aspect through tension in the atmosphere. I recommend wearing some cool colors, such as light blues and lilacs, for some softer looks on this day.


 February 14th, the official Valentines Day, we have Mars enter Taurus. Though it is no surprise that Mars prefers Aires over Taurus. Mars being a grounded earth sign, can really create some stability with the “love vibe” all around. Moon is also in Gemini on this day. Wear a nice sexy colorful top, with a pant and heel. This is the perfect dinner date outfit to celebrate with the one you love.


February 17th, there are two favorable aspects. We have Venus in Capricorn sextile Neptune in Pisces and the Sun in Pisces sextile Uranus in Aires.  This is bringing in harmony on all levels.  Anything goes for outfit today. In order to please the cosmos, give the outfit a taste of the Rainbow.  Wear a Spring dress with

 a winter blazer over it and then pair it with some great tall booties and tights.


February 18th, Venus conjuncts Saturn. This is a serious view on our value and worth. Dress in something important and expressing your authentic nature. Wear a blazer with one of your favorite blouses and a nice pair of trousers.


February 19th we have a Full Moon in Virgo. Similar to every Full Moon, we always have an opposing force, which in this case is the Sun in Pisces. Dress today, where you utilize both sides of your practical and your dream. Wear a blousy floral sleeve top, your favorite pair of skinny denim, crew neck cashmere sweater and a colorful bag for a spring preview.


February 22nd, Venus, ruling our love and self-expression conjuncts planet of the transformation Pluto. Today can be a day that you can get sexy with your wardrobe. How about wearing a lace camisole with a durable coat and a pair of black booties.


February 23rd,planet of communication, Mercury, sextiles planet of transformation, Pluto. This occurs in the signs of Pisces and Capricorn. Though these signs appear to be polar opposites, they can really learn from each other’s strengths.  Pisces are the compassionate fish and Capricorns know how to accomplish anything through hard work. Wear something that shows the alliance of these two cosmic signs.  Dress in a unforgettable light colored jacket, muted tone dress and a pair of heel boots.


 February 27th , the Sun in Pisces makes a favorable aspect to  Mars in Taurus.  This harmonious union can help with the communicative battle of land and water. How about we create harmony in your outfit. This can be accomplished by wearing a long maxi skirt with a crop top and a crop jacket.


This Month, though shorter than most this year, has a lot of movement in it. Many of planets are changing signs allowing us to prepare for the seasons ahead. After such a cold and dark winter, we cold use some colorful and inspiring spring looks to add to our wardrobe rotation.
