Welcome to February, which sparkles like the Sun’s light reflecting through icicles after a fresh freeze. Throughout much of the month, we will be sensing that life is more than just what we see because our hearts will be full and our intuition will be growing. For the first week our beloved planet of charm and romance, Venus, will be swimming in the deep seas of Pisces, but the main event will be the approaching Mercury Retrograde that we will begin to feel as early as the first of the month. Our planet of communication will also be diving into the reefs of Pisces, which will enhance your perception and emotional intelligence. This is a blessed time to rebalance your heart and your mind and pay attention to the messages the Universe is offering you. The official backstroke of Mercury begins on the 16th and lasts the rest of the month into March, so allow yourself to pull back and heal rather than being so hard on yourself when life hits snags.
Venus darts into Aries while Mars plods into Capricorn this month, and we also have a Full Moon in Leo on the 8th followed by a New Moon in Pisces on the 23rd. February has plenty of activity so take a peek into what the stars have in store for you.
Editor’s Note: If you haven’t yet read Kyle’s 2020 horoscope forecast, be sure to take a peek at it for an outlook on your entire year ahead!
When February arrives, you’ll feel glad to be free of the heavier January before. Dust off your favorite outfit because a festive spirit will electrify your bones. Events should be filling your calendar and you will be able to grow closer with your current circle or expand your network. Venus, the planet of love, storms the gates to the castle on the 7th and crowns you royalty for the rest of the month, so expect to be radiant and magnetic in every way. Single Aries can attract someone new while committed ones will feel more pleasure with their significant other. The Full Moon on the 8th will make your heart roar, adding even more fuel to the fire of love.
Look forward to the 16th when Mars, the planet of energy, powers up your career for many weeks to come. This could bring the major breakthrough that you’ve wanted. Triumph can be yours. When February winds down, solitude is calling and you’ll surely feel the need to take a break and rest. Heed this now because you have such a busy year ahead. The New Moon on February 23 will be your recharge button, as well as a Mercury Retrograde, which begins on February 16. Enjoy the slower pace then.
Success and power have come for you, Taurus. February dawns with career opportunities like a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Your next ambitious victories will add even more prestige to your name as long as you work hard for them now. Your ruler, Venus, will also be shining popularity upon you during the first week of the month, so if looking for love, you can do so then. The Full Moon on February 8 will bring attention to a home or family-related issue and some Taurus could move or fix up their space at this time.
Mars, the planet of passion and drive, fires you up to explore new horizons beginning on the 16th and lasting for many weeks to follow. Many of you will travel, be involved in an immigration situation, begin an important media project, or see success in academics now. Your social calendar will become filled once the New Moon on the 23rd opens up, and you may add new friends to your circle or grow closer with the ones you have. Some could also become involved in a community of like-minded souls. The Mercury Retrograde in the last third of the month could bring some headaches with an acquaintance, though, and you’re likely to hear from at least one friend from the past. Reminisce on the good times or leave those memories buried.
The heavier moments in January will be fading from memory as February arrives. You’ll feel the air beneath your wings lifting you to new horizons ahead. The New Moon at the end of January told you to embrace change, and you may do so through travel, academics, or spirituality at the start of the month. A very chatty Full Moon in your communications sector shines on the 8th. Many Geminis could be focused upon an important speaking or writing project at this time. If you’ve been ready to submit a proposal or update your social media, now is the right time.
Single and committed Geminis will have a major focus on relationships for the first sixteen days of the month, so use this time to build stronger connections. If looking, take the initiative.
But that’s not all this month—success is also on your mind! The New Moon on the 23rd will see you making power moves in your career. Achievements could be right around the corner. However, Mercury Retrograde will be taking place in your career sector from the 16th onward. Do not sign any contracts and try not to take a new position. If you would like to return to an old project or reconnect with old coworkers or bosses, the portals are open now.
Relationships are a major focus throughout 2020 and you should be seeing happier ones this coming year. As February begins, you’ll be considering the balance in these connections, whether in business or love, and how you can work together more cohesively. If you are in need of financial support, such as with a scholarship or loan, news may appear now. On the 7th, you’ll start to hear applause for work done well once Venus enters your career sector for the rest of the month. If looking to impress bosses, now is the time. Favorable awards or recognition could also appear. The 8th shines a light on your finances, likely bringing a check or the ability to pay off a loan. Watch your money at this time so you don’t overspend.
The 16th starts yet another mighty trend in your relationships, when Mars fires up your marriage and commitment sector. Over the coming several weeks you will be able to make a great deal of progress toward your goals by working with a partner. Single Cancers have a great chance to look for someone with long-term potential, but don’t sit back and wait for them to come to you. You must take the lead. Committed Cancers could bring the fiery passion back into their connection.
When the month draws to a close, some Cancers will embark upon a cutting edge media, publishing, or academics project. Others could see themselves setting sail on a cruise or jetting off to a faraway location. Enjoy the new horizons.
Stronger relationships are on your mind at the dawn of February, which could be a time when many Leos are becoming engaged, married, or forming long-term plans. If looking to find a partner who roars just like you in business or love, single Leos could also see luck now. However, when the light of the Full Moon near February 8th reaches a crescendo, you will see a very important personal goal close to your heart reach fulfillment. Now is a time when you can make the world bow to your demands, so don’t be afraid to speak up. What you desire in a relationship and bring to the table will also be on your mind now.
Mercury Retrograde could cause some hiccups where you realize you aren’t on the exact same page. All relationships take effort, so use the later weeks and the New Moon on the 23rd to improve your connections.
Last to note this month is that Mars, the planet of energy, will be firing up your productivity sector starting on the 16th. You could find that you are extremely busy at this time or taking on an ambitious new project. Be careful to watch your health during these coming weeks so you don’t burn yourself out. If you’d like to use the increased energy to build a healthier fitness or diet regimen, you’re in favor, too. The plans you build now could last for nearly two years if not longer.
Productivity is a major focus in February, so expect to be very busy as the month begins. Many Virgos were taking on new projects or employment near the end of January, so keep up the brisk pace. Health goals may also have been on your mind and now is a wonderful time to find a better regimen or routine that will increase your physical strength going forward. The Full Moon on the 8th will be telling you to take a break so you don’t burn out, though. Listen to the stars and try to schedule a spa treatment or extra hour to sleep in.
Prepare to watch as romance ignites before your eyes this month with so much starlit love! Venus, the planet of beauty, graces your commitment zone until the 7th, bringing opportunities to find a serious partner or improve relations. Mars, the planet of sex, heats up your adventure zone on the 16th for many weeks to come. A gem of a New Moon in your commitment zone occurs on the 23rd. This will open doors for single Virgos to find a long-term relationship or committed ones to make serious plans with a partner in the coming year ahead. Engagement, marriage, or moving in could also be on your mind. However, Mercury will be backstroking in this same sector, so don’t make any concrete decisions now. Wait until late March to set things in stone. You’ll be happier that you did.
Valentines Season is here and nobody is in the mood for love more than you, Libra. A New Moon in your romance sector at the end of January opened a portal straight to your heart so do not miss the opportunity to find someone new at the beginning of the month if looking. Committed Libras will enjoy the zest of passion sprinkled on their relationship once again. Venus, the planet of pleasure, arrives on a chariot in your partnership zone on the 7th, so expect happiness to bloom in all of your connections. Your social calendar will see you invited to an important event near the Full Moon on the 8th, so don’t miss the opportunity to show off your sparkle. This could be one of your favorite moments of the year!
However, when Mercury turns backward in your sector of employment, expect the missed emails and headaches to arrive. The New Moon on the 23rd opens a door to you in your job, but something seems amiss due to the retrograde, so tread lightly. Some Libras could be offered a new job at this time. If this occurs, you may take it, but be ready for it to be slightly different than you expected. Coworkers, too, could be frustrating, so operate out of love at this time and be kind to yourself. Your sanity and health are important no matter how much you want the gold.
February brings a great deal of attention to your home and family, Scorpio. The end of January may have brought a surprising adjustment here and you could feel the world beneath you shifting. Some of you may be moving while others are attending to an important situation with their kindred.
The Full Moon on the 8th will have you celebrating exciting career news, and this could cause some tension at home. Be mindful of respecting both spaces because you can truly balance success and happiness. Praise, a promotion, or some significant breakthrough is nearly assured with this mighty Full Moon lighting up your life.
Romance will also be a big focus for you this month, especially as Venus, the goddess planet of attraction, bewitches your life until the 7th. The Sun moves into this passionate sector on the 18th and the Moon meets him on the 23rd, opening a door to your heart. Single Scorpios can snatch a prized new lover to their side while committed ones will enjoy the magical adventure they’ve stepped into. However, with Mercury causing confusion in your romantic life throughout the month, especially after the 16th, trust your intuition above all else.
At the beginning of the month, your mind will be laser-sharp as you tackle an exciting writing or speaking project such as a proposal, contract, or branding initiative. Embrace the opportunity to share a message that’s deeply important to you.
Watch as your love life ignites as soon as Venus, the planet of pleasure, brings light to your heart. This begins on the 7th and will last throughout the month. Single Sagittarius have a glorious moment to align with a star-crossed partner while committed ones will find that they’ve stepped back into a fairytale.
The New Moon on the 23rd will shift your thoughts to your home and the coming days that follow it will help you fix up your living space or move to an entirely new spot. Family matters could grab your attention, too, especially with Mercury taking a nap in this sector.
Last to note this month is that Mars, the planet of strength, has been in your zodiac sign since the beginning of January and will continue to give you dominance until the 16th. You’ll be magnetic, so go after everything you desire. However, when it moves into your income sector in the last third of the month for many weeks, your expenses may suddenly rise. Watch them now so you don’t end up with unnecessary expenses.
Wealth can be yours if you tend to your money like a garden at the start of February, Capricorn. A raise or new job may suddenly be near at the beginning of the month. This is an excellent time to manage your finances. The Full Moon on February 8th will have your needs brought to the forefront, though, as you are debating what you give and receive in your partnerships. If requiring financial aid or a loan, you could get approved at this time.
Romantically, you could see that you are growing closer than ever before. If the balance in your relationship seems to be off, you can negotiate a better alignment for both of you. Sometimes in life a relationship may be more than what it is worth, and if this is the case, a possible breakup could occur. This is a natural progression in order to clear the way to better and more fulfilling relationships ahead. Remember: This is your golden year. Jupiter, the planet of miracles, has your back no matter what.
Exciting news comes once Mars, the planet of passion and drive, skyrockets into your zodiac sign on the 16th where it will bring you strength and energy for several weeks. Your charisma, dominance, and sex drive will increase at this time. Use this fuel to set the stage for major projects and plans that you wish to have a boost of energy for the two years ahead. The New Moon on the 23rd brings your attention to your communications sector, which brings power to your words and mind in the coming days ahead. However, with Mercury Retrograde taking place in the last third of the month, you may be debating how to come across differently than you ever have before.
Each zodiac sign only has one Solar Return a year, and for you, dear Aquarius, the time has come. You are brighter than all others during birthday season, so don’t rest in the shadows. This is your time to shine. Use these weeks to launch at least one of your most personal and heartfelt goals that you want to achieve in the coming year. The Universe is on your side now.
While 2020 will be a year where you are closing many chapters in preparation for the mighty 2021 ahead, this can still be a lovely time to build the life you’ve always hoped for. Events are likely to have filled your calendar throughout January and until the 16th, they will continue to stack up. Meet many new friends or attend exciting gatherings with those you trust and care for.
The last third of the month will draw your focus toward your income, so consider how to increase your stream of abundance. While Mercury will be causing some hiccups, such as missed checks or a bigger bill, the New Moon on the 23rd is assuring you that more wealth is on the way. Money can manifest when you work toward the goal. If looking to go back to a job or employer you previously had, this could be a wonderful time to do so.
Welcome to a month that will be strange and beautiful, Pisces. With Venus, the planet of beauty, making you radiant and magnetic until the 7th, love and pleasure will be found everywhere you go. This is a fortunate time for single Pisces to find someone new or for committed ones to draw their partner to them like a moth to the flame. The Sun will remain in your sector of healing and rest throughout much of the month and you may find yourself very reflective at this time. Some of you will be considering closure about past relationships or projects in order to release them.
On the 16th, Mars, the planet of energy, will fuel up your social sector assuring that you will be invited to many festive gatherings in the weeks ahead so get ready to bust out your favorite outfits for some group photos! Mercury will be prancing through your zodiac sign throughout much of the month gifting you with persuasive power and increased wit, yet when it goes retrograde on the 16th, you will notice that you feel like you’re lost in a sea of emotion. Confusion and hiccups will affect us all, but you will feel especially uncertain about where the path forward leads. Try not to stress and realize that the Universe is actually pulling you back because it appears you missed some vital information recently and you must now face it.
When birthday season arrives mid-month and into March, you’ll feel more lively, so make sure to look at your to-do list of things you’d like to experience in the coming year and begin to create the life you’ve always hoped for. The Universe has so much happiness in store for you, dear Pisces, so keep your chin up.
