February 2021 starts in a good place for everyone with the Sun, Mercury, and Venus in forward-thinking Aquarius. In addition, Mars is still in Taurus – which can be slow-moving – but which also lends itself to staying power. Noting the signs the planets are in right now, this is a good month to develop plans for the future and see them through with stalwart persistence.
On the very first day of February, the Sun will square Mars, making us all more prone to argue and ready to act without thinking. To avoid conflict, try to reign in some of your angst. On the other hand, if an argument has been brewing between you and someone you know, it might come to head today. Sometimes it can be better to bring conflict into the open, rather than let it remain unacknowledged. This might be the perfect day to resolve – or at least begin to talk about – the argument.
Mercury will be in retrograde until the 21st of February. With Mercury in retrograde, matters relating to communication and short trips might be difficult to contend with or cause unnecessary problems until Mercury starts moving direct again.
On February 6th, Venus conjuncts Saturn making everyone a little more serious in matters of love. We might find ourselves making less risky decisions in relation to our partners or relationships. We also will feel a sense of responsibility toward our partners.
This positive aspect between Venus and Saturn will soon be challenged with Venus squaring Uranus on February 7th. The planet of love and beauty caught in a difficult aspect with Uranus could lead to unwise choices in your relationships or might lead you to put your faith in the wrong people. Things might be somewhat off-kilter in the area of love while Venus squares Uranus.
February 8th will see you double down on your opinions whether that’s a good idea or not. The Sun will conjunct Mercury, making you feel more stubborn in your thoughts than normal.
On February 10th, Mercury squares Mars to make us all feel somewhat upset and likely to get in an argument.
February 11th will be a breath of fresh air for all of us. The New Moon offers a fresh start and a new look at the world around us. In the progressive sign of Aquarius, this opens the door for us to make plans for the future and dwell on our hopes and dreams. In addition, Venus is conjunct Jupiter, making us feel more popular and attractive. Use this aspect to make some good things happen!
February 13th and 14th will be a time of ease and joy. Mercury conjuncts Venus on February 13th, making us charismatic speakers and creating harmony between our intellect and emotions. On February 14th, Mercury conjuncts Jupiter for an extra dose of intelligence, generosity, and optimism. Mars sextiles Neptune, bringing us creative energy and powerful imagination.
The Sun officially enters Pisces on February 18th, leading to the end of another zodiac year. We might all need some more time to ourselves and might lean into mystical pursuits more than normal.
On February 19th, Venus squares Mars. There might be more arguments and upset in your intimate relationships. Things might feel stressful, but when the aspect passes, some of the strain should dissipate as well.
Mercury will return direct on February 21st, making matters related to communication play out in a smoother way.
On February 25th, Venus enters Pisces, bringing its mystical, secretive, sensitive nature to our love relationships and perceptions of beauty.
The Sun will sextile Uranus on the 25th as well, which will let us lead and make decisions. We might even experience some serendipity. Mars trines Pluto on February 25th, giving us energy and letting us approach life with bravery and ambition.
We wrap up the month on February 27th with the Full Moon in Virgo. This is a detail-oriented full moon, allowing you to really look at your life and pare down the excess. You might find yourself reaching for perfection during this full moon. Try not to pressure yourself but do take the opportunity to get clear on what you need in your life, especially in relation to your work and material possessions.
February 2021 ends on a good note, with Mercury direct, a few planets moving into sensitive Pisces, and the energy from forward-thinking Aquarius propelling us into the future. Enjoy the intellectual, rebellious attitude of Aquarius season and the start of introspective Pisces season.
