Welcome to February, a rare month where most of the powerful titans in the heavens will all stand in the same corner of the sky. This month is quite special, as it will accelerate the arrival of the Age of Aquarius. For decades, people have celebrated its dawning. At the end of 2020, as the Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn took place in the water bearer’s zodiac sign, these two gods of the sky announced that yes, the world has changed forever and a new order has come. For the next two hundred years, Great Conjunctions will take place in the air signs, bringing more emphasis on the attributes of these signs over the earth signs, where we’ve seen a focus for the previous two hundred year cycle.
As I mentioned before, February is quite important, as we will witness the new moon in Aquarius—backed by a whole parade of planets here as well. Mercury, Venus, the sun, the moon, Jupiter, and Saturn have all joined together to sing a song to summon the future. Here and now, we will be given a chance to review who we were as a people before (because of a Mercury retrograde in this same sector most of the month) while we carve out a new path together.
Mercury retrograde will take place officially from January 30 until February 20 but will be felt throughout the entire month. Because of this, it is wise to go with the flow of the Universe as it leads you forward. Use this time to plan what impact you’d like to make on the world in the year ahead.

As the stars stand in a tight formation in your sector of hopes and dreams, February could end up being one of your favorite months in 2021. The new moon on the 11th will help you to expand your network and focus on your long-term goals. Someone could step in now to help you on your path. Yet, with the Mercury retrograde taking place simultaneously, it could portend that the person to help you may actually be someone from your past. Regardless, this is a magnificent month to reconnect with old acquaintances personally or professionally.
The sun will move into the most hidden area of your sky in the last third of the month, encouraging you to lie low, daydream, and rest. Do so now because March will bring much more momentum. February will end with a full moon in your productivity sector on the 27th. This may help you put the finishing touches on a major work project, get a new job, or decide to take on more from your boss.
Never in your lifetime have you had such an opportunity to become crowned as royalty, Taurus. The turning point could finally come now! As the new moon in your professional sector arrives on the 11th, you may hear news of a promotion, achievement, or major award. Success, power, and fame could now be within reach, Taurus. Rise.
Yet, with a Mercury retrograde happening this month in this same sphere, you could hear from old business contacts or about previous projects you thought had been forgotten. This is a great time to reconnect with your goals, review them, and get ready to debut them before the world.
The sun will move into your social sector in the final third of the month, ensuring more fun and games with your friends and acquaintances. Lots of happiness is assured. When the full moon sings in the night on the 27th, a dazzling romantic moment may come. Many Tauruses could fall in love, hear of a proposal, or connect with a soul mate. Pregnancy could also arrive for those who have been trying.
A burst of good fortune will energize you now, Gemini. This is because many of the planets in the sky will be in a fellow air sign, allowing their gifts to flow easily to you. However, your ruler, Mercury, will be retrograde throughout most of the month, so it will be a better time for lying low and reviewing your progress up until this point rather than charging ahead blindly.
The new moon on the 11th turns your attention to your next horizons, especially highlighting your interest in media projects, traveling, education, or international affairs. Use this lunation to set goals for the year so that when the pandemic hopefully fizzles out later this year, you can soar.
The sun moves into your achievement sector in the final third of the month, turning your mind toward your professional goals. In the month ahead, get ready to work toward important plans for your future.
The month will end with a full moon in your domestic sector, helping you to move, renovate your living space, pursue a real estate goal, or even just update your room! Family affairs will also likely rise to your attention at this time, so listen to what your loved ones have to say.
With so much planetary activity in your sector of intimacy this month, Cancer, you’re feeling the urge to merge. This could help you take steps closer with a partner, heal fears about relationships, or even work on processing past trauma. It is important that your sensual, emotional, and sexual needs be met by someone who loves and cherishes you. The new moon on the 11th could help you to align more perfectly than ever before.
There’s another way this could instead affect you and that is if you’ve been awaiting news about venture capital, a scholarship, a bonus, royalties, or a bank loan. It may finally be ready to flow your way! Just be careful not to rush any contracts or agreements, as Mercury will be asleep most of the month.
The sun will sear into your sector of expansion in the final third of the month, aligning opposite the full moon on the 27th. This mighty lunation could see you launching an important communications project, whether that is via writing, speaking, advertising, or social media.
Relationships will be your main spotlight this month, Leo. With so many planets directly across the sky from you, it’s clear you’re very concerned with partnership, whether that is in love or business. This month could see you deciding to move closer toward one another and make long-term plans, whether that includes moving in, getting a pet, becoming engaged, or even contemplating eloping for a surprise wedding. However, Mercury will also be retrograde in this same sector this month, so as much as you’ll have the energy to make commitments, you should wait to officially do so until after the 20th.
The new moon will surely stir the pot about you connecting with someone important. Single Leos should be on the lookout for someone you see as a possible long-term partner. As the sun moves into your intimacy sector later in the month, you’ll be ready to snuggle up closer.
February ends with a full moon in your financial sector on the 27th. This mighty lunation could present a raise, new job, lucrative client, or even supply you with the capital to pay off a debt. Welcome in abundance now!
February will be a peculiar month for you, Virgo. Life will feel very much like you are taking two steps forward and then one step backward—particularly in regard to your work life and productivity. With so many planets in your employment sector, you’re doing your best to stay focused and make progress happen. However, your ruler, Mercury, will be retrograde most of the month, meaning that you could be finding confusion at every turn! The best thing to do is to review your plans, slow down, and go with the flow.

This same lunation could bring news about family affairs—especially when it comes to your parents. Listen to what the winds bring in.

With so many planets huddled together and acting like magnets in your financial sector this month, Capricorn, money will be on your mind! It appears you could be soon bringing a great deal more prosperity into your life, but don’t just sit back and wait for it to come to you. The new moon on the 11th may bring a raise, new client, or large check, but it is also crucial for you to apply yourself. Capricorns who are in need of employment or a better job should search around that time. However, a Mercury retrograde is also happening this month until the 20th, so if you can hold off signing contracts until after that, you’ll be happy that you did. If, instead, you can’t wait, then jump, take it, and just have faith the Universe will work out as it is meant to.
In the final third of the month, the sun will transition into your communications sector, empowering you to focus on how you write, speak, and connect with those around you.

Get ready for an extremely slow month, Pisces.
