Your HelloGiggles horoscope, February 24th to March 2nd: Intellectual stimulation will be your biggest aphrodisiac

Your HelloGiggles horoscope, February 24th to March 2nd: Intellectual stimulation will be your biggest aphrodisiac


Your HelloGiggles horoscope, February 24th to March 2nd: Intellectual stimulation will be your biggest aphrodisiac

February, we hardly knew ye! This week, we’re leaving the “mini” month and heading into March, the first month of spring. So let’s check in with ourselves during this transit. Last week we had a Full Snow Moon in Virgo, which allowed us to shed outdated behaviors and patterns that were preventing us from growing on all levels. We’re also smack-dab in the middle of Pisces season, so we’re accessing our emotions and sixth sense in powerful ways that alloww us to tap into more creative, healing, and compassionate energies. Meaning? This is a perfect time to combine your gut instinct with informed knowledge to form new habits that will help you evolve in both your personal and professional lives.

Speaking of the personal, on March 1st, Venus, the planet of love, enters Aquarius until the 26th. We can expect intellectual stimulation to be our aphrodisiac during this time as we seek connections that are deeper and more unconventional than what we’re used to. We’re looking for a friend and a lover. But don’t be surprised if you’re craving freedom and space within relationships during this time, too. It’s all part of our inner processes as we cleanse old ways of being to step into the healthy and loving specks of stardust we truly are.

Here’s what else the stars have in store for your weekly horoscope.

PISCES

Your reflex is to self-protect, Pisces, but your presence is needed. You’re on a powerful trajectory that includes stepping into your light and offering your gifts to the world. You are stronger than you realize.

ARIES

It’s okay to not know the next step, Aries. While your instinct is to plow ahead and figure it out later, it would be more helpful to take a breath and explore your options. It’s okay to take your time.

TAURUS

You don’t like chaos or instability, Taurus, but try to see them as catalysts for change and self-improvement. While the initial “lean in” is difficult, the more you do it, the more comfortable you’ll feel—and you’re all about comfort.

GEMINI

Your mind is constantly speeding, Gemini. You’re brimming with so many ideas that it’s difficult to see how each one could function in your life. Take a moment to journal and meditate on your thoughts. This is self-care, too!

CANCER

You might find yourself at a crossroads, Cancer. You prefer to take the familiar road home, but the road less traveled is beckoning you. Heed its call. Eventually, all new places feel like home.

LEO

You have no trouble owning the limelight, Leo, but you might feel uncomfortable with what you’re putting out there. What do you want to say? And is it true to who you really are? Authenticity is more important to you now than ever. Honor that.

VIRGO

Having a goal helps to center you, Virgo, but make sure it’s not pulling you off track from your true purpose and sense of joy. Goals should feel good. If it feels like too much work, reconsider its true value in your life.

LIBRA

You’re feeling a little off center, Libra. You dislike feeling disorientated in any way, but what if you flipped the script and viewed your deviation as life’s way of putting you exactly where you need to be? In other words, go with it.

SCORPIO

You want to make major strides in your life, Scorpio. If you’re feeling restricted, take a look at your shadow self. Chances are it’s holding you back by replaying old messages that need to be deleted. Consciousness helps promote change.

SAGITTARIUS

Your energy is contagious, Sag. Don’t forget this when you encounter resistance in your life. You have the power to change the energy in any room. Yes, you are that powerful. Recognize that, and then watch the shift.

CAPRICORN

It’s time to write a new story, Capricorn. Your patterns have helped you up to this point, but now it’s time to welcome new tools and new energy into your life. Think less structure, more freedom. It’ll feel different, but that’s the point.

AQUARIUS

Playing within the lines feels suffocating to you, Aquarius, but sometimes we must play by the rules to get what we want. The challenge, then, for you: how can you find the innovation within the institution and make it work for you?

Changing our patterns takes vulnerability and accountability, bbs. It’s a difficult process, but the result is a newfound sense of self-awareness and growth—a perfect place to be as we move into a new month.

Free Admission to National Center for Civil and Human Rights all February Thanks to Coca-Cola

Admission to the National Center for Civil and Human Rights will be free during Black History month thanks to a grant from Coca-Cola. The Coca-Cola Foundation awarded a $ 1 million grant to the center, located in downtown Atlanta (and next door to the World of Coke museum).

The center announced the news on its website: “The grant will allow free admission for anyone visiting the civil rights landmark starting Monday, January 28 through the end of February. Visitors leave inspired and empowered to join the ongoing dialogue about human rights in their communities. In expectation of crowds, The Center will be implementing timed ticketing for admission. Timed tickets will be available on a first come, first served.”

“There is no better way to celebrate this exciting moment in Atlanta’s history than to give back to our hometown,” said Helen Smith Price, president of The Coca-Cola Foundation in a press release. “We are proud of our city’s remarkable civil and human rights history and are pleased to offer residents and visitors alike the opportunity to learn more about how diversity, inclusion, and unity are central to the story of modern Atlanta.”

Additionally, The Coca-Cola Foundation presented three $ 100,000 grants to Atlanta-area organizations dedicated to promoting Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy: The Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change; The Joseph and Evelyn Lowery Institute for Justice & Human Rights; and New American Pathways.

The National Center for Civil and Human Rights is a museum that opened in 2014. Its multimedia exhibits relay the story of the American Civil Rights movement.

The Coca-Cola Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the Coca-Cola company. Since its launch in 1984, the foundation has awarded over $ 1 billion in grants “to support sustainable community initiatives around the world,” according to the foundation’s website.
