    During the month of February, the stars are in place for you to set goals and begin preparation for them to come to pass. For example, if you want to wear your hair in a ponytail this summer, cancel your haircut appointment and instead make one for color.

    This year Valentine’s Day is on a Sunday, so if your favorite restaurant isn’t going to open, start preparing a menu that you can produce at home.

    As for Hairology:

    Aries: You are still not ready to tame your do, so keep it funky. Enjoy!

    Taurus: You’re still thinking inward. You are being pulled by Mars to take action. I dare you to go dark.

    Gemini: “Baby it’s cold outside,” so your long to short and red to platinum thoughts are a bit premature. On a bright and sunny day the look will come to you. Just don’t change your mind.

    Cancer: Right now, if you want to keep your tresses long enough to intertwine with that gorgeous winter scarf you bought at Silver Moon, make an appointment for some highlights.

    Leo: Whether you are the June bride or the bridesmaid, your goldie locks will be longer and plentiful for the formal style you’ll select.

    Virgo: You have an appointment for a haircut. One or two inches off will keep your hair healthy. Consider asking for a shine.

    Libra: I know you love balance, still there is something going on in the stars that has you thinking asymmetric. You’re right. It’s called Uranus, baby!

    Scorpio: Bring it on. The darker the better. Yes, dark chocolate beach waves.

    Sagittarius: You’ll take some waves, but only to the old fashion 1940’s style like Jennifer Lopez is wearing lately. It’s adventuresome!

    Capricorn: No matter how hard you try to hold on to tradition, it’s not in you lately. That’s because Pluto is acting up. It’s the planet that governs transformation, so have a ball. You can always say, “The stars made me do it!”

    Aquarius: Your personal planet is Uranus. It governs revolutionary ideas. Its colors are electric tones and mingled shades. I suggest you start with having just your nape shaved; the top, back, and sides cut into a short to long bob. Ask your colorist to apply just one shade over your entire head, and then mingle tones on the full bang. P.S. I know a gorgeous girl who wears this. Her name is Rosalie Burtis.

    Pisces: Your planet Neptune has been spilling into Saturn’s river and Jupiter’s whirlpool tub, so get a pedicure and have your nails painted royal purple. Then hair color (dark brown) with one flash of red (a streak)!

    Happy Valentine’s Day!
