If there’s one thing you should keep in mind for February, it’s this: Expect the unexpected. As you likely already know, it’s spontaneous Aquarius season until the 18th, when Pisces season begins. But what you may not realize is that Mercury, the planet of communication, Mars, the planet of action, and Venus, the planet of love and pleasure, will all spend parts of February in the air sign. This will create energy that’s “all about detached, forward thinking, and rejecting the old way of doing something,” says Donna Page, an Atlanta-based astrologer with a graduate degree in counseling psychology.
Hopefully you wrote in your planner with a pencil and not a permanent marker this month—because February is about tossing out those carefully-made plans and learning to live in the moment. This particular surge of Aquarius energy also has the zodiac questioning their sense of self and belonging. “You may find yourself asking, ‘Who are my friends? Where can I connect? Where do I belong?’' says Page. “Sometimes we can feel like an outsider, but this month is for finding your sweet spot.”
Other dates to take note of this month include the new moon in Aquarius on the 9th, which will bring forth new big ideas, and the start of intuitive Pisces season on the 18th. You can also expect lots of exciting new ideas to flow to you throughout February, says Page. Then, the full moon in Virgo on the 24th comes as a sort of sigh of relief, as that weekend will bring fun and rejuvenating energy for every sign.
Wondering what all this means for you? Ahead, Page breaks it down.
