February 16th Zodiac
Date: February 16th

Most Compatabile With: Sagittarius
As people born in the sign of Aquarius who have already gathered a lot of experience with the Sun in detriment, there is something charming, romantic and uncatchable about these individuals that sets them apart from the rest of their group. Their boundaries are often shaken and this makes it easier for the rest of humankind to see their soft side and their weak spots too.
Coming after several dates that stand for rationality, those born on the 16th of February seem to have an entirely different task. Their entire existence will come down to important relationships, and although matters of ego need to be acknowledged and approached in a certain way, they will be focused much more on the exaltation of Neptune their sign has to offer. The Sun is always in a special relationship with Venus, for it gets the most of its heat and their dance in the chart is truly magnificent. It is something to find as a true loving bond in Libra, where ego falls for love. This is an archetype these individuals will relate to easily, for the dignity of their Sun is similar to that of Libra, although entirely different in manifestation.

Both these symbols speak of a man's connection with nature and they will often emphasize a person's need to fight for the planet, wildlife, and give money to charitable causes that serve Mother Nature. Flowers and the tree are cut down, and they both have a purpose in their roles – one of them to look pretty and smell good, and the other to give warmth and practical value to the choice of cutting it down. In each case, something has to die to give humans what they need, and this can be a troubling thought for those born on the 16th of February.
With a strong push into the unknown they constantly feel in their stomach, individuals born on February 16th have a task to share Divine Love they carry in their hearts with the world. Their mission is marked by Neptune itself, and while one could find purpose in romance and physical pleasures, this is a date that asks for much more, for deep forgiveness, awareness of emotional Self, and true love, idealized and perfect – as it must be. Their purpose in this world is to create and inspire, be the muse or find a muse, and be the music others hear when momentum for creation takes over. Hopefully, they will leave something behind for the rest of us to admire and dive into.
Love and Emotions
As if they are emotional on a higher scale, individuals born on February 16th aren't always in love with another person as much as they can be inspired and in love with life itself. Whatever they choose to do needs to come from the heart or they won't do it well. We might say that they are dependent on their feelings, positive or negative, and need to shake of the dependency, set free, and finally start living in the moment without chasing ghosts from the past or visions of the future.
They want their partner to be different from everyone they have ever met, someone to love them unconditionally and embrace their weirdness too. It is in their nature to seek perfection and the ideal of love is their final destination, but only if they are brave enough to reach high enough and never settle for less than what they know lives in their Soul.
What They Excel In
A person born on the 16th of January has many talents, and will turn to artistic expression at some point in life, at least holding onto a hobby that helps them express. As if they were born dancing and singing, they will enjoy doing so day in and day out, and their creative side can be manifested through all forms of art, from music to fashion. Their designs will make their home and homes of those around them prettier, and they will excel at jobs such as those of designers and artists.
The crystal those born on the 16th of February should consider is alunite, or also named Angel Wing. It is a stone that brings creative arts to life and helps them discover the talent that sleeps within, while at the same time giving them powerful grounding and not letting them wander off and getting lost. This is a stone of harmony that helps one to establish the state of balance between physical and emotional energies.
February 16th Birthday Gift
We have finally come to one of those dates that makes a person born on it to truly appreciate art in all its forms of expression. Well-informed and creative themselves, it won't be easy to buy them a piece of art though, but it is always a good idea to create something for them yourself. They love gifts and surprises and you shouldn't wait for their birthday to show affection. Small daily things that spark their feelings are desirable, and grandiose signals that scream of your affection needed on important dates. Their tender soul craves for much more attention than their words and actions might show at first.
