February 8th Zodiac
Date: February 8th
Color: Persian Rose
In One Word: Safety
Strength: Fiery Heart
Most Compatabile With: Libra
There is a feisty energy to the 8th of February that seems to distance these individuals from their true emotional nature, and makes them warriors for the right causes. They will be marked by Mars, and the purity of fire burning in their hearts and their destiny depend on their ability to see the world as tender and supportive enough.
When Mars combines with the Moon, we often have a situation that might be too rough to handle and a person who evokes emotional hurt in their lifetime. Those born on the 8th of February feel things in the material world intensely and profoundly, and differ from other Aquarius representatives with their emotional capacity and lack of detachment from the world through intellectual work. Although they are still strongly connected to the field of ideas, it seems to be their second destination, and they won't reach it until they resolve emotional issues that weigh them down. Family will present their system of support later in life, just as much as impatience of their parents could damage their perception of the world.
As these numbers combine we come to the second level of numeral values that leads us to the story of the Sun and Pluto, speaking of Unity that needs to find confirmation in their personality and their relationships with the world. With such colorful emotional world and their Sun already in detriment in Aquarius, it is not an easy task for these individuals to incorporate all unconscious and subconscious contents into their aware Self to feel whole.

These two symbols obviously speak of Mars and the Moon combined once again, and the active and passive energies within. Their heart has something to say, but fires need to be quenched first, and all anger issues must be resolved so that messages from the heart can be heard. Until then, the feminine and sensitive will only serve to build understanding and extinguish what burns in this person's Soul.
While battles of those born on the 8th of February rage on and create a strong ripple in their emotional world, we will see that their only goal in this life is to find self-respect as a result of emotional acceptance. Their mission hides in their personality, acknowledgement, and the way they can shine in the real world, leading others towards self-awareness and a healthy ego. A deep change they need to go through won't be easy, and most of them will find to be different from their family, their genetics and any ties to the past they have grown up in.
Love and Emotions
Happiness in love hides beyond personal growth in the world of those born on the 8th of February, and their relationships could be true emotional rollercoasters until they learn who they are and how their differences can be used for the greater good. Since the challenge of understanding between them and other people is at work here, they will always have emotions to share, and be involved with people with unclear boundaries that might hurt them and show to be dishonest in some way.
Only as they get to know their own personality with all its strengths and weaknesses, will they progress to relationships that bring fulfillment and stay on a safe distance filled with mutual respect. It is not their goal to find someone to merge into one with, but to find someone who can be complete without them, to create a truly functional bond where both partners are self-sufficient, in love and happy.
What They Excel In
The first part of their life will usually point them in a direction that allows them to help those that were bruised, or send them on a chase for goals of their parents. This is an unconscious need to move on in a certain direction, in a pace given to them by other people. As they grow older, they will start to discover their true talents. They will excel in sports, active workplaces, and environments that allow them to interact with people openly and freely. In time, they become successful managers, leaders, and public figures that have something to share with the world.
Guided by a powerful Martian energy that needs to relate to their hearts, individuals born on the 8th of February need something for kundalini awakening and the best stone to support them is Stichtite. It is a crystal with a profoundly loving vibration that is used to heal emotional matters that are unresolved and find forgiveness. As a very protective stone, it will create a shield around them that will protect them from negativity and leave enough room for them to deal with matters of the past they need to heal.
February 8th Birthday Gift
A birthday present for a person born on February 8th is always tricky to find, simply because they wish to be more serious or less sensitive than they really are. More often than not, their passion will burn a bit too brightly, but they need time to learn that it is a gentle approach that will keep it functional and calm. When you choose their gift, respect the need of the moment and their current interests. To stay on a safe side, it is wise to hold on to their hobbies and interests you share with them, giving them information they seek in the form of a book or a course.
