February's Monthly Overview

Expansion through contraction. That’s an across the board mantra for 2021’s Aquarian helmed year, but we really start to feel the weight of our utopian vision in February. How to ground our idealistic future visions into reality? We have to shake up the old to make way for the new!

The Aquarius stellium, including Mercury’s retrograde for the first two weeks in January, gives us a chance to revise our big picture vision. We have an idea of our future desires, but now we need to review the game plan and outline the steps to get there. The new moon in Aquarius on February 11 is a great time to manifest your dreams with grounded intention.

When it comes to putting in work, Mars in Taurus is methodical at best, a bit lazy at worst. Give yourself extra time to finish projects this month. With Mercury retrograde in the sign of technology, we’ll likely experience more annoyances and mishaps on Zoom calls, and Google hangs. By the full moon in Virgo on February 27, we’ll have a better idea of our teamwork mishaps, allowing us to release habits that hold back our productivity.

On a societal level, astrologers keep watch leading up to the first of three significant Saturn Square Uranus aspects that occurs first on February 17. This aspect highlights tension between Saturn in Aquarius, wanting to progress society forward into a more equalitarian existence, and Uranus in Taurus, creating volatility in old “stable” structures to make room for the future. Technology will play a big part in democratizing movements that catalyze our structural shifts. Because Saturn and Uranus are slow-moving planets, we start to see a sneak preview of this energy’s manifestation a few weeks out.

The Robinhood Reddit story showing friction between democratized finance and established Wall Street hedge funds is a perfect personification of this square! Historically, Saturn Uranus squares have been associated with financial downfalls (the 1929 stock market collapse). Still, this year has enough positive transits with Jupiter that the shake-ups actually lead us to better systems that empower more people instead of the wealthy few. Keep a keen eye on crypto currency’s movement as the internet day trader battles continue through the 17th.

Romantically, this month’s Valentine’s Day brings the likelihood of fated connections, especially for air signs, with Venus trine the Nodes of Fate and Jupiter. Though, as with any retrograde season, the likelihood of hearing from a past lover is heightened. This is especially true on the 6th and 7th with Venus square Uranus. We usually advise keeping it moving and focusing your relationship energy inward and onwards. Still, the Venus sextile Chiron transit brings the potential for healing old wounds via open-minded Aquarian communication. If you still have a vendetta with a past lover, it’s a good time to clear the air and clear the energy! Blocking someone isn’t healing; find peace with the past is.

Mercury stations direct on the 21st, bringing business as usual with tech and travel. Since Aquarius is the sign of friendships and group hangs, you may find yourself reflecting on your tribe. What friends are there for you when you’re feeling weird and introspective? Who loves you for all your quirks and supports your bigger vision? Which friends share your values and inspire you to be a better human? These are some of the friend reflections that may write themselves throughout February, setting the scene for your social life for the rest of the year. 

By Your Zodiac Sign

Aries Monthly Horoscope

Your social life is in high gear for the first two weeks of the month! It’s a great time to review the energy you cultivate around you and discern who supports your bold, big vision. What friend groups bring out the best version of yourself and help you feel supported in taking giant leaps of faith? Romantically, if you’ve been feeling sparks with a friend, there’s a chance platonic connection could grow into something more intimate this month. It’s an auspicious time for you to investigate and learn more about startups, future technology, community living, and social causes.

The Saturn Uranus square on February 17th may shake-up business partnerships and your career. You know your value!

Cancer Monthly Horoscope

This year’s first retrograde hits a deep, emotional place for you, Cancer. You may be doing some soul searching for connections beyond the superficial and probing your psyche for the answers. If you’re single, it’s a good time to take stock of your relationship patterns and your psychological needs. The new moon on the 11th plants seeds for casual flings to become more committed. Your ability to express your emotions unapologetically can open doors to intimacy on Valentine’s Day. Speak your truth and be ready to receive love in return. Financially, it’s an important time for you to review investments and think about ways to make your money work for you. Take time to learn cryptocurrency and market trends if it calls to you!

Gemini Monthly Horoscope

You’re feeling extra independent and perhaps restless this month, Gem. With an Aquarius stellium in your 9th house, you may say screw it to the retrograde warnings and book travel out of town anyway. Finding a higher perspective doesn’t require packing your bags, though! You could take a trip into the deep recesses of your spiritual mind by picking up a new meditation or transcendent practice. It’s a highly supportive time for expanding your spirituality. If you’re single, February 14th may bring someone special within your orbit.

Guarantee, you’ll have a flooded inbox within minutes of posting pics of your iconic self; just stay on guard for those retrograde ghosts! If you’re attached to the status quo, the structures in your life may receive a long-overdue Uhaul when Saturn square Uranus comes in. What is your life feels outdated and stale? There’s a fine line between stability and stagnancy. Lean into the shift and embrace any shake-ups as catalysts for radical growth.

Virgo Monthly Horoscope

The beginning of February may look like Groundhog Day, with a steady routine helping you climb ladders of success. It’s a great time to pay attention to eating and workout habits, though physically, you could be feeling more lethargic than usual. Leave some time for romance on Valentine’s Day, as the moon in Aries hits your 8th house of intimacy and deep feels. The full moon on the 27th falls into your sign, allowing you to reclaim your self-concept and purge any inner blocks or limiting beliefs holding you back from achieving your visionary goals!

Pick up your favorite creative tool and transmute all those retrograde repressed emotions into a beautiful work of art! February 14th brings a Venus Node trine your sign, facilitating harmonic communication between you and your Valentine.

Scorpio Monthly Horoscope

There are times when your emotions run so deep; you feel practically merged with your loved ones. The Aquarius stellium falls into your 4th house of home, feels, and family, bringing focus and attention toward reviewing those themes. Careful not to fixate or create problems that don’t exist. You operate best this month when you can take a step back and analyze the bigger picture objectively, removing reactivity from your process. On the 17th, Mars in the 7th house of relationships clashes with your home life, bringing the need to resolve partnership issues that trigger you internally. There’s also a chance that you and a partner may consider moving or expanding your family together. Aquarius in 4th house also says your family can be the ones you create through strong friendship bonds. Make sure to pay homage to your tribe this month, as they’ll be a great sounding board while you sort through personal matters.

Capricorn Monthly Horoscope

What do you value in companionship, Capricorn? This is what you need to ask yourself this month as the Aquarius stellium weighs on your 2nd house.

The right partner will support you in actualizing your dreams into reality. If you’ve been dating based on status, looks, or financial security, you’ll have a chance to connect a little deeper at the end of February. Be open to being vulnerable and feel how worthy you are of true love.

Sagittarius Monthly Horoscope

You’ve got a lot on your mind that wants to be expressed, Sag! For the first two weeks of February, it’s best to hold off on late night impulse texts, as miscommunications are likely. February 11th brings fated communication around a partnership with Mercury Trine, your North Node in the 7th house. If there’s an important convo that needs to happen, talk it out under this supportive star aspect! The Virgo full moon on the 27th illuminates your ability to plan long-term relationship goals and close the chapter on old wounds.

Pisces Monthly Horoscope

Retrograde season hits your 12th house of subconscious, secrets, and introspection, Pisces. Don’t be surprised if old stories or lovers pop up around the 6th.
