Love is in the air and the sultry Year of the Snake has started just before Valentine’s Day bringing reflection and wisdom to the signs. Find out what your Food & Wine Horoscope February 2013 says for the month of February 2013 and which sign might share their champagne with you on Valentine’s Day.
(March 21-April 19)
Set your aim with Cupids bow. You may snare the object of your desires with simply showing your quick wit since communicative Mercury is in Aquarius at the start of February. Keep your work goals in focus though since you may have to pay for those Valentine’s Day flowers somehow. Really impress a special someone with a perfectly pink bottle of Rosa Regale with rose petal notes and pair it with fancy yet easy to make Brie Toasts with Chocolate Wine Sauce. Can you say decadence!
(April 20-May 20)
If you are in a relationship then this is the season to spoil and be spoiled. Partnership is in focus this month and it could be business or personal. The Chinese year of the Snake coordinates with the sign of Taurus so things will be more intense this year. At the end of February with a Virgo Full Moon in your 5th house make your honey a romantic dinner to show your appreciation. Try making an appetizer like an adorable Chevre Noir & Riesling Poached Pear Parcel and you will be the hit of the party.
(May 21-June 20)
With the Sun in your 9th house of expansion you will reach out to distances and make new connections. Travel is also favored and it could be a short day trip or something longer. You are feeling more giving this month and can be seen helping others or sharing delicacies like Shrimp with Chocolate. Yes, you may not feel like sharing the delicious shrimp once you take a bite, but doesn’t it make the meal more fun?
(June 21-July 22)
There may be some changes in a relationship and that might either bring it closer together or further apart to make room for something new. You are secretive most of this month with the Moon in Virgo emphasizing the mind, but will start to open up later as you share a bottle of Bolla Amarone. This lushly flavored wine will make you pause and reflect on history since it is made with traditional winemaking techniques from the Roman times.
(July 23-August 22)
You are more of a social bunny than roaring lion at the start of the month and may also be surrounded by friends and family. Double check finances and contracts with Mars in Pisces calling your attention back to those. Don’t forget to keep your sense of humor this month and invite some friends over to make chocolate Truffles! Easy to make and so much fun these will leave you giggling in delight! but perhaps not the one who has to clean up the kitchen after…
(August 23-September 22)
New projects have your full attention and you have regained a spark of excitement. If you are doing something you love then more good things will come your way spurred on by the grand vibes you are emitting. Enjoy this and share your newfound energy with your sweetie. Pick up a bottle of Chandon Bubbly before Valentine’s Day to celebrate ahead. The more happy occasions the better!
(September 23-October 22)
Instead of being at the office you would rather be out on the town at a nice restaurant with friends and loved ones and when you are out with friends you may be thinking of the office. Don’t overdo it though since you do need to get some rest and keep a balance. Have some hearty dishes to keep your energy like Thomas Keller’s Cassoulet.
(October 23-November 21)
Home is where you are cozy this month. Redecorate a corner to make it more special. There is nothing wrong with recharging in your comfortable abode with a good book (Perhaps 50 Shades…of Scorpio for the Valentine’s season) and a glass of Carbonnieux Pessac-Léognan to have with your Braised Beef in Chianti. The Full Moon on February 25 takes you further on inner journeys and helps you move forward.
(November 22-December 21)
Work is keeping you occupied at the moment and demands much of your attention. Be considerate of others and don’t forget to take a break on Valentine’s Day and make it out in time for that dinner! The end of the month is more favorable for romance and the warm glow of love will ignite your passions. Take a winery tour with someone special and wine flavors will be even more marvelous in their presence!
(December 22-January 19) or (Dec. 23-Jan. 20)
At the start of the month you may be out and about meeting some interesting people. After the Full Moon of the 25th and while Venus is in Pisces romance is more favored and you will meet someone connected to an out of town trip. Until you have that special someone in your life later this month, indulge in some divine Champagne with friends on Valentine’s Day. The transit of Neptune will bring out your artistic nature which can take your mind off the cravings for luxury you recently have. The year of the Snake should be very favorable to Capricorns!
(January 20-February 18)
You attract more admirers this romantic February and your smile dazzles them as well as your skills in the kitchen and especially your ooh la la Beef Bourguignon that you serve with a nice glass of red wine. Don’t let worries bog you down as what you think about manifests in reality. Keep your focus on the good and check your grumpy attitude at the door because Venus is in Aquarius (your sign) this month! Your confidence will rise and you will set out to manifest the destiny you dreamt of. Revamp that business idea and let your intellect shine as you network in confidence.
(February 20-March 20)
This month there is much to review. You may soon get that promotion you were hopping for so don’t dwell on the reasons that you have not already. Take some time to pamper yourself and relax…and to finally paint the walls in your living room. Try making something new and exciting like a Dungeness Crab Cakes with Cucumber Mint Salsa appetizer to spice up the weekend.
