The January 23 full moon should keep you in high spirits until February 8.

Decan 2 Aries February 2016
Uranus square Pluto square comes into play again this month to prolong the tension you have been feeling lately.

The best time for starting new projects is during the waxing phase of the moon phase which is from February 8 until the February 22 full moon.
