We have been very good and mature and responsible lately. We made our resolutions, worked steadily, we even persisted in the face of adversity. But things might have started to feel a little… stagnant. Lucky for us, Aquarius season is here to shake things up and ask us if the path we are on is the one made for us, or simply the easier, well-travelled one that everybody takes.
What’s more, dreamy Pisces is beginning to filter through and is all too eager to take a more serene approach to pretty much everything. Throughout the month, we are tasked with one job and one job only: to be 100% completely ourselves. That’s it. That’s the whole brief. But it’s harder than it sounds. Fortunately, we have the inspiration and power of the zodiac on our side. It’s time to come out of your cocoon, my love, you are growing into the person you were meant to be.
What to Expect in February
It’s Aquarius season! And we’re here to discover why our exact combination of cells and stardust came together on this Earth. Aquarius is known as the alien of the zodiac due to its sheer individuality. Represented by the water bearer, Aquarius receives inspiration and distributes it to the masses. Aquarius is not here for petty grievances (usually), Aquarius is here to save the world. With compassion, collaboration and innovation. Capricorn season was perfect for making plans and kicking goals and persevering and doing things by the book. Aquarius season follows to allow our imagination in, to find new solutions to old problems, to be inspired by the intricacy of this world, and to find meaning in life that is unique to us. Aquarius also brings people together, fights for social justice and encourages us to use our intellect. So, let’s push some boundaries, shall we?
We begin the month with Mercury giving us some more than necessary grounding in Capricorn. Organisation, responsibility and maturity are still priorities for us for this reason, especially when communicating and processing information. Venus, on the other hand, is in dreamy, spiritual, and romantic Pisces. We are pulled in the opposite direction when it comes to love, abundance, and creativity. This paradoxical energy can be conflicting at times, but under Aquarius’ collaborative and distinctive energy, it’s more likely to converge and make something even better.
Mercury joins the Sun in Aquarius on the 11th, allowing even more ideas, epiphanies, and inspiration into our minds. This is a time to use our imagination, be authentic, and get a little weird. On the 18th, we move into Pisces season, the last sign of the astrological year. This is a time for reflection, spiritual connection, healing, and compassion. On the 20th, Venus is the first of the year to move into fiery Aries, and we are dosed with a surge of passion, courage, determination, and maybe even recklessness, especially when it comes to money and love.
The full moon in Leo takes place on the 5th, and offers us a chance to rest and reflect on what brings us true joy, and whether we are being our best, most authentic selves. The new moon in Pisces occurs on the 20th and ushers in a time of new beginnings, especially when it comes to relationships, creative projects, healing and spiritual practice.
All in all, February has a little bit of everything. What colours will you add to the picture?
