February Meaning, Birthstone, Zodiac Sign, Horoscope
(Horoscope) In both the Julian and Gregorian calendars, February is the second month of the year and is typically regarded as the final month of winter.
In leap years, the month has 29 days instead of 28 days, with the 29th day being referred to as the leap day.
Because Valentine’s Day, which falls on February 14 each year, is considered the month of love, February is the shortest month on the calendar.
The Northern Hemisphere‘s third and last month of meteorological winter is February. February is the third and last month of meteorological summer in the Southern Hemisphere.
The Roman festival of Februa, during which people were ritually washed, inspired the name February. In this instance, the festival’s name was given to the god rather than the other way around.
Amethyst, a stone for intuition and tranquility, is the birthstone for this unique month.
February Zodiac Sign
Pisces and Aquarius (January 20–February 18) are the zodiac signs for people born in February (February 19 – March 20)
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
It’s still your season for the first part of the month, Aquarius, especially around Valentine’s Day. However, Mercury, the planet of communication, enters your sign and encourages you to express your sentiments, bringing out your romantic side. A raise or a proposal could also be in store for you towards the middle of the month.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Early in the month of February, you might feel a little bit lonely, but by the middle of the month, when you reunite with friends, possibly on Valentine’s Day, your happiness surges. Therefore, Pisces, the second half of February not only marks the beginning of your season but also portends good news for your professional life.
