Decan 1 Taurus February 2016
The uncomfortable end to January continues early this month with other unsociable influences making the first three weeks of February 2016 a little uncomfortable. The best time of the month begins on February 18. Following that, the February 22 full moon will extend this more harmonious influence into March 2016.
The January 23 full moon maintains a confrontational environment until the February 8 new moon. The full moon itself is confronting as it deals with emotional abuse.

The February 22 full moon will extend this prosperous phase until the March 8 solar eclipse. This waning phase of the moon will make you feel more homely, nurturing and sensitive.
