MERCURY ENTERS AQUARIUS FEBRUARY 5-23
What insights and topics will dominate your attention for the next few decades? You’re going to find out. Mercury is about to enter Aquarius and conjoin Pluto there—a crucial meeting that will shift your mind toward the collective good, political reform, social justice and equality. Our ideas can become catalysts for personal growth and collective evolution.
Mercury in Aquarius is innovative, progressive thinking, logical and visionary. Let it open your mind to new ideas and possibilities—fresh perspectives on the status quo. This visionary energy invites us to tune in and imagine future possibilities. When Mercury conjoins Pluto, the power of words, information and truth are illuminated. The energy is intense and persuasive, balancing curiosity with a need for accuracy. Don’t get lost down a Google rabbit hole—instead, leverage those problem-solving powers to deepen understanding. It’s time for deep, honest dialogue that might touch subjects you’ve been afraid to talk through.
NEW MOON IN AQUARIUS: FEBRUARY 9
A new moon forms in Aquarius on February 9, closely squaring disruptive Uranus and meeting with Pluto there for the first time. This transit offers insight for the next few decades. Uranus brings a strong urge for freedom and independence, sudden emotional volatility and plenty of shocks and surprises. Pluto’s co-present only amplifies this chaotic energy, so learn to mitigate its influence.
The good news: We’ll all learn something about adapting to tough situations. Uranus might be wild and unpredictable, but that makes him a pattern breaker. Use this moment to break those entrenched, negative patterns—and find the freedom you’re really seeking.
But there’s a silver lining. Saturn rules this new moon and interacts with expansive Jupiter, tempering the chaos with harmony and balance. This influence should anchor you through the ups and downs—those opportunities to grow or contract. That’s where you’ll find your center. Mercury squares with Jupiter as well—bringing optimism and stability. Focus on the task at hand (without starting new projects) and you’ll make it through. Cheers to a liberating New Moon!
MARS ENTERS AQUARIUS: FEBRUARY 13 - MARCH 23
Mars enters Aquarius on February 13, turning your attention toward progressive, intellectual endeavors. Innovation thinks outside the box while being self-reliant and deliberate. Don’t keep those bright ideas to yourself—share them! This transit fosters connection, so go deep on your own and pass what you learn to others.
MARS CONJOINS PLUTO: FEBRUARY 14
Buckle up for a bumpy Valentine’s Day. On February 14, Mars conjoins Pluto—for the first of 10 times over the next two decades. Mars and Pluto together create harsh, extreme energy on the personal and collective levels. Hidden power dynamics, obsession and aggression may rear their heads in your personal life. On the world stage, ruthless characters do their nefarious thing.
Fortunately, there’s a positive direction to channel this energy: determination. When you use the intensity for good, you’ll find the focus and drive to overcome a challenge. You’ll feel an intense desire to succeed, and ambition can be a healthy thing. Mars and Pluto are not team players, so find opportunities to work solo in your endeavors…or simply work twice as hard to respect others’ opinions. Grace and restraint—vigilance and mindfulness—will keep you in check.
VENUS ENTERS AQUARIUS: FEBRUARY 16 - MARCH 11
Phew, time to lighten up. When Venus enters Aquarius, your social side takes over. You’ll crave connection, intellectual stimulation and new friends who share your vision. Venus brings people together—fostering friendship, collaboration and community to serve a higher purpose. She values unconventionality, independence and freedom in relationships, so keep an open mind. Give yourself and others space to explore their freedom without feeling threatened by it. You never know—friends may become lovers, or lovers become friends. It's all intertwined with Venus in Aquarius.
VENUS COJOINS PLUTO: FEBRUARY 16
When Venus conjoins Pluto, attraction is intense. I’m talking about the all-consuming, intense relationship energy that seeks depth, intimacy and vulnerability. We’ll feel that craving for loving relationships with our friends and our partners. This transit also gifts us with allure and magnetism others will respond to—the kind of attractiveness that brings new people into our lives. We’ll find it easy to persuade and charm.
Channeled correctly, we can bring beautiful new dynamics into our lives. But on the flip side, we can attract obsession, power and control—put simply, stalker energy. Self-awareness and self-reflection are your friends, and they’ll tell you when something is a healthy attraction or an obsession.
PISCES SEASON: FEBRUARY 18 - MARCH 20
Pisces season is an invitation to slow down and go inward. This season is about being in touch with your feelings, which means reactivating emotionally, yet tenderly. This fluid sign is open to adaptation and flexibility. At heart, Pisces is profoundly kind and has the capacity for limitless forgiveness and creative expression. Jupiter’s influence on Pisces season grounds Taurus, giving this sign a calm, nurturing, stabilizing tone. Let Jupiter in Taurus be your anchor as you navigate, honor yourself and find the space to access Pisces magic.
FULL MOON IN VIRGO: FEBRUARY 24
Balance is elusive, but the full moon in Virgo is your time to find it. Spiritual growth and practical matters don’t need to conflict—you can walk and chew gum at the same time! Virgo Moons sometimes overanalyze, which isn’t such a bad thing when you solve problems and create a more efficient life. Now is the time to streamline. Pare back the habits and fixations that get in the way.
Virgo tends toward worry and self-criticism, but full moons are the best time to let go of a negative mindset. This moon’s ruler is Mercury in Pisces, who wanders in the mystical, creative and intuitive realms. During this time, he’s combust (hidden from the sun’s rays) and suggesting something underneath the surface. Pisces’ soulful waters are where you’ll find the intuition to read the hidden messages. Meditate, listen to music and seek clarity to find the answers—not with your rational mind, but with your intuitive mind. This Full Moon is a bright light in the dark part of the sky — are you a light for others, or is someone an illuminating force for you?
