Monthly Astrology Forecast For All Signs February 2021



By our astrologer Elena

ARIES

Get a load of Love for the Now Age

Show others how much you care

Give your goals the attention they deserve

Now Age love is at its peak this month Aries. On the day the new Moon appears in your 11th on the 11th, we have a major stellium in here comprising of the Sun, Moon, retrograde Mercury (direct from the 21st), Jupiter and Saturn. This is the ‘love shall rule the stars’ line-up. But take it there are as many forms of love as there are planets in here now.

Venus arrives in here at the top of the month. Please remember that although this is Valentine’s month, Venus in this house is about the love of friends rather than bringing you that one special person. I am not saying that love could not spring from a friendship further down the track. Just that if your intention going in is to find romance, this is not your transit under which to do it. Even if it were to start off filled with promise, it is likely to de-evolve into a friendship (nothing wrong with that!), or just end up fizzling out entirely.

However, due to the presence of that stellium, Mercury retrograde hitting Jupiter again and Venus and the Sun meeting Jupiter, there is an exception to this rule. If you are already friends and this is the next step for you both, then February could be the month where you both realise there is more to your connection than just friendship.

Cupid aims the Arrow of Fate

If you are settled, then the whole retroactive and Crazy Cupid buzz around this year’s Valentine’s Day in the sky could see you both remixing the chemistry that brought you together in the first place. Yes, we are in lockdown in many parts of the world. Single? Well, there’s Zoom over which to get together with friends for virtual Galentine’s, Brolentine’s or gender neutral Palentine’s get togethers. This is a month to show friends how much you care about them. And no, it is not pathetic to be single or on your own on Feb 14.

As well as retro Mercury conjunct Jupiter for the second time on Feb 14, we have a spiritual union of higher love potential happening in your 12th between asteroid Cupido (yes, him with the bow and arrow), Ceres and the Moon. All will square that mysterious part of the galaxy – the Centre which is located in Sagittarius and your 9th. We don’t really know what is at the heart of this – yet. Physicists believe a supermassive black hole.

But what we do know astrologically is the Galactic Centre has a big role to play in the grand design of our lives. As do our friends, contacts and wider networks which stretch out like the arms of our galaxy. So, if you have no boo, reach out and tell people how much you care. You may be utterly amazed at what comes back.

People Make the Magic Happen!

If not love, then it is a month to be pouring love into your goals as well as those connections. You’ve a whole lot of help happening. State your intentions for the future as Venus meets Saturn on the 6th. Many of you could see opportunities, benefits, gifts or solutions manifest via friends, professional contacts or who you know. Jupiter in your 11th is all about making not just one wish but three. And to expect at least one to manifest during its stay in here. Usually via your connections.

Let’s talk about the New Moon in your 11th on the 11th. It’s a new Moon of invention and innovation. To follow up your most ingenious ideas. Because yes, it is all about setting those goals in motion for the future. And astrologers have long associated this particular new Moon with doing exactly that. This is also the new Moon which ushers in the Chinese New Year – the Year of the Ox. Again, an important time for new beginnings. So, set your intentions. And then act once Mercury heads direct in here once again on the 21st.

Tight aspects to ruler Mars in your 2nd also tell you its people power that you need to harness if money and other resources are on that goals list. Dates to watch as the 1st – Sun square Mars, 19th – Venus square Mars and a power move trine between Mars and Pluto in your 10th on the 25th. By all means open the dialogue or plan the move, by try to delay final negotiations until after the 21st.

You will be aided by intuitive superpowers from the 18th when the Sun crosses into your 12th. Venus follows on the 25th. Ceres will enter your 1st on the 21st. It is the planet of win/wins and compromises. All this has you looking at the ‘you and me’ aspect of all your relationships. And the give and take that takes place in all of them. This month points to the giving that flows via friends.

This month’s full Moon on the 27th is known as the ‘Snow Moon’ – although January’s full Moon is sometimes also called that. It is called the ‘Hunger Moon’ by some native cultures owning to the fact that food was in short supply. February in Romani tradition is called ‘Little black month’ – a reference to its short duration and also the winter depths. We are however now a month away from the spring equinox so remember that.

The full Moon in your 6th asks you to use intuition when it comes to habits and wellbeing issues you have carried with you into 2021. And gives you the opportunity to revise and shed if necessary. The Moon rules Cancer – the sign of nurturing and which rules the stomach. This full Moon is therefore an excellent one under which to instigate those new eating habits – and stick to them. And also, if you need help – to buddy up. Which is your key to success in any goal for the Now Age.

In a nutshell: Love potential for the Now Age peaks this month along with the planets in your 11th, Aries. Just remember – love takes many forms this month. But starts with those connections.

 

TAURUS

Love that uniqueness

Make that promise to future you

Show you’re love and success enabled!

Ruler Venus arrives in your Now Age 10th at the start of February. Career matters, your status, public image and reputation will be your main focus this month. Due to the massive planetary activity in here. On the day of the new Moon in here on the 11th, we have a major stellium comprising of the Sun, Moon, retrograde Mercury (direct from the 21st), Jupiter and Saturn.

Time to focus on invention, innovation, entrepreneurial projects and what it is that makes you stand out from others in your chosen field. Even if you do not engage in paid work right now, this line up is set to elevate your status or that of your partner’s, or image in some way.

Rewards for adulting and yes, your ability to diligently stay the course could be on their way as Venus meets Saturn, Jupiter and retroactive Mercury. You could go from being behind the scenes to front of house, collecting accolades, promotions or acknowledgments. Above all this month is about not feeling guilty for wanting what you want. That’s the up-side to adulting and taking yourself seriously. Serious commitment to dreams. And knowing you deserve them to happen.

See Yourself as Others See You

Be aware that your image and how you are perceived – especially by those in influential positions, is going to play a major role too this month. It’s about your connections and the place you have earned yourself in the grander scheme of things. So, you need to be extra-specially mindful of this now. Are you seen as someone to respect and who is reliable? This isn’t about bending yourself out of shape to ‘conform’ at all. But what it is about is the impression you have created for yourself.

Dates to watch and make a point of trying to see yourself as others do are the 1st when the Sun in your 10th squares Mars in your 1st asking you to reach for cooperation balanced with self-assurance. And the 19th when you can truly project some charismatic confidence when Venus makes the same angle to Mars.

This also applies to romance. Unlike those Aries-next-door, this month could in fact bring Valentine’s love for some Taurean singles. This could even be with someone connected to your professional network. Your 10th doesn’t just rule how high you can climb or what you can achieve. But your partner’s path too. Ruler Venus could therefore deliver that love prospect who is quite the catch.

Take the initiative now with career matters and ensure you project the right image. But please avoid any confrontations with anyone in a position of authority. Mars will trine Pluto, the final remaining slow-moving planet left in your 9th, on the 25th. Making all the right moves could just hand you the release into something better you’ve been waiting for, Taurus.

If you have been contemplating a career change but have yet to take that first step, the new Moon in your 10th on the 11th is one which shines on those goals – especially those connected to your career. Or even that romantic status! Astrologers have long associated this particular new Moon with future plans according to the house it appears with. So, anything that represents a step up.

This is also the new Moon which ushers in the Chinese New Year – the Year of the Ox. Again, an important time for new beginnings. So, set your intentions and make your plans. And then act once Mercury heads direct in here once again on the 21st. Just be aware of the potential for things to swing back and forth until mid-March however. Adapt strategies and remain flexible.

Is Love The Change You Need?

The 14th has retro factor Mercury rekindle big dreams – including those around your biggest loves, once more as it meets Jupiter for the second time. This day also has a line up in your socially-diverse 11th between asteroid Cupido, Ceres and the Moon. All three squaring the Galactic Centre in your 8th. Does having what you want or love to experience require a change?

Love with a foreign flavour or far, far away could attract. It’s pulling you towards new potential if you will let go and let it. This can also link you to experiences, beliefs, studies and the mass media. Then of course there’s those ambitions to consider and the love of what you do.

Connections, friendships, networks, bands, groups, professional organisations, higher causes and who you know as opposed to what will be in focus from the 18th when the Sun enters your 11th. Ruler Venus won’t be far behind as it too arrives in here on the 25th. Time to re-engage with who you already know. And look to ways to broaden your circle and also involvements even if socially distanced now. This cycle sets the tone for your social life and your future for the coming year. Stagnant or expanding? It’s up to you.

The 21st sees Mercury finally direct again in your 10th and also Ceres arrive in your 12th. What’s the compromise you need to strike now between those personal ambitions and drive to succeed? What has to be relinquished or let go of? Having it all is so last century. Nobody gets that. Having something better – so today. This is asking you to pick and choose. A process that you have been refining during this Mercury retrocycle. So, focus on what’s truly important, Taurus. And that which defines you now.

This month’s full Moon on the 27th is known as the ‘Snow Moon’ – although January’s full Moon is sometimes also called that. It is called the ‘Hunger Moon’ by some native cultures owning to the fact that food was in short supply. February in Romani tradition is called ‘Little black month’ – a reference to its short duration and also the winter depths. We are however now a month away from the spring equinox so remember that.

It will shine on issues relating to romance, children and creative self-expression now. As well as what might be missing with regards to goals and good times to share with others. Sure, it can be hard right now to join in and connect. But look to how necessary this is for your wellbeing. It forms an integral part of your success story this month. Having it all may not be possible. But reaching those ambitions and benefits via who you know? All on offer this month, Taurus.

In a nutshell: You gotta love your ambitions this month, Taurus. Take them seriously. You could be about to up your game in both the love and career stakes. You may not get to have it all – just what matters most to you!

 

GEMINI

Big Up that Love

If you want to aim high you need a firm foundation

Mercury retro gets Romantic!

Yes, ruler Mercury remains retrograde in your 9th until the 21st. And then it will be in retroshadow until next month. Don’t despair however, Gemini. You still have plenty of key dates for going places and ticking those ‘Must Do’s’ off your agenda.

Retro-factor Active!

If you’ve been following your forecasts lately, then you know this is a retrograde like no other. Due to Mercury encountering Jupiter in what is Jupiter’s ruling house twice during this cycle. Once this month and then again when it heads forward. You also have Venus landing in here too. So, take it that even while Mercury is backwards, you have certain days when the retroactive gravity decreases around you or simply no longer applies. Think of this as your flash sale up to 90% off usual Mercury mayhem!

So, there are days when substantial progress can be made or opportunities appear. Even if they then stall or vanish for a while. You can take it that they will revive or return. There is a bit of stop and go involved this February and you are strongly advised to listen to your intuition when it comes to when to push forward and when to do nothing.

It’s Valentine’s month of course and for you, this is about big loves. Not just for a person – although this may feature. But what you do, what to do, see, experience, learn and dream about. Especially in the big wide world, no matter how locked down you are feeling. Venus’s arrival in your 9th at the top of the month is all about these kinds of loves. The kind you dream about. Maybe it’s time to ask yourself why you want or dream about having them? And alternative means to get there.

This especially applies on the 1st to coincide with Venus’s arrival as the Sun in your 9th squares Mars in your 12th.Call this a reality check and also a compass re-set if you have discarded a dream you wanted. This is asking you why, for what or who? Afraid of upsetting the apple cart/status quo/someone if you do? You’ll be asked the same question around personal love on the 19th when Venus will make the same angle to Mars.

This is a cycle of innovation, experimentation and individualisation like no other. One that electrifies and frees you. While asking you to be true to yourself. Of course, some people may not like this. And you could even meet resistance or obstacles on the 6th when Venus and Saturn meet in here. But also this sees you determined to stay the course.

You are in for the long haul and aiming high. What you seek or where you want to get to will also be linked to people and who you know. If there is only one kind of exploring you can do this month, then make it exploring and restoring connections – new and old in any way you can. People are the catalysts for those dreams.

Your Lucky Stars!

This month is Go Big or Go Home. Yes, you may already be home. But aiming for something for your future is still possible. The 11th is your first dream direction date as we have a new Moon in your 9th and this is the same day as Venus and Jupiter meet in here. This is all about starting off on a journey fuelled by a big love. And with a boost, blessing or opportunity to kick-start it like no other you have seen for a long time. This is also the new Moon which ushers in the Chinese New Year – the Year of the Ox. Again, an important time for new beginnings. What is says is: Begin it now. That first step on a larger journey towards that goal for your future. And do make it a big one!

Retroactive and renewal benefits could be heading your way as your retro ruler also meets Venus on the 13th and then Jupiter on the 14th. It’s a Valentine’s Day like no other as this could see Jupiter acting as Fat Cupid and firing off those arrows in all directions for you. This day is also excellent for long term career matters if you stay practical and prepared to accept something new. All thanks to a major conjunction between Cupido itself, Ceres and the Moon in your 10th squaring the Galactic Centre in your 7th. This could show you what is possible for you if you are willing to let go of what others may think – and dare to go after what you want.

The Sun’s arrival in your 10th from the 18th will ignite those work ambitions. But it is time to stay grounded and be practical and professional about these. Mercury’s shift to forward motion from the 21st is more an amber light than a green one. It still has to clear its retroshadow next month. But don’t forget – this adds up to another Jupiter meeting and the return of solutions and opportunities!

The 21st also sees Ceres land in your 11th promising new deals around friendships especially the empowering, female variety. Venus enhances your public and professional reputation from the 25th when it joins the Sun in your 10th. This day also offers a powerful transition for you as it sees Mars in your 12th trine Pluto in your 8th. It’s a time where you can finally reclaim your mojo, confidence and soul direction. Especially if others have been draining you or standing in your way instead of offering support. You will no longer concern yourself with fears around this. All that matters will be those goals.

This month’s full Moon on the 27th is known as the ‘Snow Moon’ – although January’s full Moon is sometimes also called that. It is called the ‘Hunger Moon’ by some native cultures owning to the fact that food was in short supply. February in Romani tradition is called ‘Little black month’ – a reference to its short duration and also the winter depths. We are however now a month away from the spring equinox so remember that.

This Moon is in its ruling house in your chart – your 4th. Shining on home, lifestyle, living arrangements, family, the people you live with or share your home with – this includes lodgers, and also what you need to feel that all-important sense of emotional security and safety. This is a full Moon which encourages us to nurture ourselves. To tune in to our intuition, to be open about our vulnerabilities and needs with those close to us – and above all to look closely at what we need to do to create a secure base from which we can set out in the direction of our future.

If you are going to aim high, you need a launch pad, Gemini. And also, a base to return to. You’ll see something important come within reach this month. Or a way open to make it possible. Do the ground work and watch how your goals take root and grow from that.

In a nutshell: Love says you’re going places this month, Gemini. For once, Mercury retro isn’t putting blocks in your path. Time to embark on a new journey. Seize the day – and the opportunity this February!

 

CANCER

Change offers freedom and empowerment

Say it your way

The new, Now Age of loving is here!

Venus and Jupiter as well as the Sun, a new Moon, Mercury and Saturn in your Now Age 8th point to all kinds of mischief around this Valentine’s month, Cancer.

This is your house of transformations, endings, sex, rebirth, sharing and other people’s money, Flings could get flung now – or at the very least that flirtation at a social distance takes an XXX-rated turn. You may want a walk on the wild side whether you are able to actually take it or not. As a result, settled Cancerians may be in for a sizzling time. If you’ve been looking for ways to fire things up between you and your boo, let your imagination open the door to that unexplored pleasure room in your head now!

All this passion has to be expressed somehow. What is simmering within you demands to be let out! Don’t try to keep a lid on your feelings. And remember, if someone does push your buttons this month, your first reaction to this is almost certainly the right one. So, don’t second-guess yourself.

Yes, for some this month may indeed sizzle hotter than lava on a beach. But there’s a big difference between sizzling and simmering dissatisfaction. The latter could just reach boiling point if you don’t tackle it while you are cool-headed. Watch for the squares between the Sun and Mars (1st), Venus and Mars (19th) and the conjunction between Venus and Saturn on the 6th as dates where the wrong kind of heat can erupt.

Get Ready for Together Times

However, this is also a month of freedom, inspiration and positive, empowering change. Rebirth and new beginnings are foreshadowed. The heavy line-up of planets in your partnership zone over the past few years should have shown you that the old patterns of partnerships, marriage, long term love or any double act, required a new way of relating.

Pluto is the only slow-moving planet left in your 7th now. Jupiter and Saturn having moved on into your 8th. This tells you there is a new dynamic in play. And what better month to launch a fresh kind of togetherness than Valentine’s month? You or the person you are with may be the one who wants something new. What is obvious is you can’t stick to the old patterns. They aren’t working. Watch for the heat-making trine of the 25th between Mars in your 11th and Pluto on the 25th to see exactly what’s hot – and what’s not between you and someone else!

This February could bring in someone new for some. Be open to the role this person will play but know they are a catalyst for that wild, passionate experience you are driven to seek out. This is all happening in your 8th so as well as sex, this is your ‘other’ money house. So, this person could just as easily be your employer, someone powerful who opens up their connections or other resources to you; or even an entity in the form of a bank or other institution that grants you access to more financial resources in the form of a mortgage or loan for instance. All are transformational.

Seriously Minted Choices

Fabulous, forever choices are heralded for you as Venus and the Sun transit your 8th. Solutions around partnerships or money which ultimately leads to more freedom are all part of the package of Venus moving through this house. You also have Mercury retrograde in here until the 21st. Power moves can be made and magnetic attraction is yours as doors to something cosmically changing open wide for you.

Dates for self-determination, action and empowerment are the 8th when the Sun and moonwalking Mercury meet. The 11th changes the face of love, money or sharing when Jupiter and Venus hook up. Get talking on the 13th as there’s revival in the air around a key negotiation or personal matter when Mercury meets Venus. While the 14th could bring that Valentine’s game changer as Mercury and Jupiter meet for the second time.

Know that if something is meant to be or happen it will now. Mercury will meet Jupiter in here a third and final time when it is direct again next month. So, if something blows hot then cools down or stalls, provided you have done all the can, embrace the power of letting go and waiting. And also the power of choices too. Know you have more than one you can make now. The only limits may be your own hesitation or fear.

Look to your financial goals for the future at the time of the new Moon in your 8th on the 11th. This is the same day as Mercury and Venus meet in here too. Venus rules your bank account while Mercury rules contracts, commerce and transactions.

On a soul level however, this is a fabulous new Moon under which to reclaim your mojo if you feel it’s been lost along the way these past few years. Especially as this new Moon is the one that brings in the Chinese New Year of the Ox. Making it perfect for a re-birth within. You are what you believe you are or can be under this new Moon.

Power workouts lead to freedom!

Feeling powerful and in charge of your destiny leads to a sense of freedom once the Sun lands in your 9th on the 18th. For some, this may be reflected in career making moves as powerhouse Ceres moves from here and on into your status sector on the 21st – the same day as Mercury begins forward motion again.

Big loves, embracing new visions and again, following that desire for more passion and a sense of wonder and wildness, are the themes you’ll encounter once Venus also arrives in your 9th on the 25th. Your intuition now is telling you the direction you need to go in to find this. Just where is that, Cancer? You need to explore where your imagination is taking you. Simply because this may be more real than you think. Especially later this year between May-July.

You’re the Voice

Full Moons always exert a strong emotional pull on you. This month’s full Moon on the 27th is known as the ‘Snow Moon’ – although January’s full Moon is sometimes also called that. It is called the ‘Hunger Moon’ by some native cultures owning to the fact that food was in short supply. February in Romani tradition is called ‘Little black month’ – a reference to its short duration and also the winter depths. We are however now a month away from the spring equinox so remember that.

This full Moon waxes in your 3rd of communication, learning, commerce and ideas. This is a Mercury ruled sign and house in your chart. And Mercury is direct once more from the 21st although not clear of retroshadow until next month. So, remember what I said about energy needing an outlet or expression.

Something you thought done and dusted may reappear or else you realise there is no putting off what needs to be said under this full Moon. If you have been reluctant to have that conversation, you will do it under this full Moon. Also look closely at any frustrations you may feel around your daily routine, chores etc. Are you feeling you are taking on more than your fair share? Is there where the changes really need to happen? Don’t be afraid to voice this.

This month wants to show you that you are more capable and powerful than you ever imagined. It will also demonstrate that when you come from a place of authenticity and don’t try to supress your true feelings, the only result you end up with is empowerment and positive change. Act with integrity and passion, Cancer.

In a nutshell: Passion reawakens you to change this month, Cancer. You’ll be reclaiming this or anything else that’s been missing in your life lately. The Triple X Factor? You own it in February!

 

LEO

Long live love in the here and now

Don’t let small obstacles get in your way

Inspired solutions and strategies for success appear

Venus lands in its ruling 7th at the start of the month. Joining ruler the Sun in here along with Mercury retro and of course, lucky Jupiter. And making this one of the best Valentine’s line ups you’ve seen in a very long time, Leo. Especially as at the time of the new Moon in here on the 11th, we will have a grand loved-up total of six planets in here. Talk about love ruling the stars.

Venus will meet Saturn in here on the 6th. Think serious love or any kind of partnership or double act. Many astrologers associate Saturn in your 7th with attracting an older partner. This is due to Saturn’s association with age – or should I say wisdom? However, in my experience, Saturn in your 7th can bring in a relationship where age can be a factor one way or another. Yes, an older partner is a possibility. But so is a younger one. You may be the older partner – not the other way around.

Remember – it’s just a number and love doesn’t do that. If it doesn’t worry the other party then it shouldn’t worry you either. Settleds could be taking existing unions to a deeper level of commitment. But please bear in mind that even Venus and Jupiter working together can’t fix anything broken beyond repair. Saturn also rules time – and this includes saying ‘Time’s up!’. And having the wisdom to know when it is.

Your status and your ambitions will also feature this February. This includes your job status, the title on your business card, your relationship status and also your public and professional image. How you are seen or want to be seen by others. This is always an important area for any Leo. You will feel the push to act and to pursue permanent, positive shifts around these areas as your ambitions soar due to Mars in your 10th. This of course goes hand-in-hand with the confidence to make them!

Strategies for Success

If a square involves your ruler the Sun, or enchanting, diplomatic Venus, then take it that while you may have to push through initial obstacles or make that determined effort, the outcome is going to be to your advantage. Any Leos seeking work or wanting a new direction will feel the impulsion to take hold of their destiny and act on the 1st when the Sun squares Mars. And again, around the 19th when Venus squares Mars. The same goes for anything you want to tackle regarding relationships and partnership matters of all kinds. Act in the name of love. Despite Mercury retrograde in your 7th until the 21st, if you are seeking love, put yourself out there.

This is a Mercury retrograde like no other as new beginnings are possible. And so are revivals, reconnections and returns. Those ‘re’ words still apply but this retro, embarking on something entirely fresh is no longer a no-go activity. Sure, it may go back and forth for a bit. At least until Mercury is finally clear of retroshadow next month. But the important thing to remember is you can begin it NOW. Or at the very least see the first signs of what will manifest appear.

News or progress around this could arrive around the 8th when your ruler meets retro Mercury. The 11th comes gift-wrapped with potential. The new Moon in your 7th is always one of the most important of the coming year for you. It is a time to focus on what you want from love in the next 12 months and to set your intentions. Or any kind of double act for that matter. Do not look back at the past. Know that if it still has a place in your life it would reappear anyway. But if it did it would have to be in a different form or a new deal would have to be worked out.

Make Love your Goal for the Now Age

This new Moon also marks the start of the Chinese New Year of the Ox – again making it a key one under which to set your goals. And it is also no coincidence that on the same day Venus and Jupiter meet in here. The promise is there of a big love experience for you for the upcoming cycle.

Or even right now. Venus meets retro Mercury in here on the 13th which could see the return of a lover or else something to celebrate for Valentine’s Day. V-Day itself is beautifully starred for you as it is the day Mercury has its second encounter with Jupiter in here. You have one more to come when Mercury is direct again next month. So, again, something may appear or be on the horizon but go back and forth until then. Understand if love is meant for you – or any opportunity for that matter, you don’t need do anything but relax and wait.

Let’s talk about the Galactic Centre as well. It is permanently in your 5th house – Sagittarius. And of course, this is your house of all things Leo-centered too! Around which your world revolves. Astrologers are now beginning to embrace the importance of this in our charts. Its gravity is so powerful it is literally ‘the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart’. In other words, our entire galaxy spins around it! At its heart is a supermassive black hole. This is where the laws of time and space break down. So we can also say, what we know or imagine is possible.

Valentine’s Day hands you a significant aspect between the Galactic Centre and a super-conjunction between Cupido (in mythology Venus’s son and yes, Cupid!), the Moon and Ceres in your 8th. Powerful and even cosmically driven changes around relationships or money could occur now. Bear in mind, this could be the beginning of something which may peak from May to July.

Your ruler is on the move from the 18th, arriving into your 8th of sizzling passion, shared assets and money. Don’t be surprised if someone offers something to you now or gives you access to greater resources. Especially around earning, income, shares, assets or even influence. Sometimes what someone offers is simply entrée which can be the most powerful catalyst of change or them all.

Mercury is finally direct from the 21st and you may now see what has been stalled or simply hanging around take on new life. Venus also enters your 8th on the 25th. If you’ve got that hottie in your sights now, expect the temperature to rise. But again, along with the Mars/Pluto trine the same day, this should give you that edgy, sexy confidence when it comes to going after what you want. Be it someone or something.

This month’s full Moon on the 27th is known as the ‘Snow Moon’ – although January’s full Moon is sometimes also called that. It is called the ‘Hunger Moon’ by some native cultures owning to the fact that food was in short supply. February in Romani tradition is called ‘Little black month’ – a reference to its short duration and also the winter depths. We are however now a month away from the spring equinox so remember that.

This full Moon is all about self-worth and self-esteem. It sends you deep into areas around what you deserve, attract and even how you are treated by others. Don’t forget the other lesson during this full Moon – how you value yourself, your skills and your talents. With your ruler now in your 8th this is all about empowerment and how comfortable you feel with that. Hopefully it shines on self-belief and go-getting desire that propels you on into March now, Leo.

In a nutshell: Love could rule the stars for you this Valentine’s month, Leo. Expect duos and all kinds of double acts to feature. It’s love for the Now Age and the future. But to be lived in the here and now.

 

VIRGO

Create everyday love

Fire up the heat

Small stuff leads to big growth opportunities

The more you show the small stuff the love, the bigger the benefits on a larger scale, Virgo. You begin the month with ruler Mercury still retrograde in its ruling 6th. Along with a slew of other planets in your house of daily living for the Now Age. Wellbeing and reclaiming your mojo if you lost it, should be your focus. As should be your daily work (paid or unpaid), studies, habits and routine.

Tiny little shifts now bring big results. As you may know, this is a Mercury retro like no other. Sure, you need to keep those retroactive rules in mind. Especially with Mercury retrograde in a ruling house. But as you know, Mercury will encounter Jupiter for a second time in here this month. Plus we have Venus and the Sun also meeting it in here as it travels backwards. This is Mercury Retro Lite. The beta version not 2.0. It offers new beginnings woven from old. Gold from straw.

Reawaken the Magic!

You know the magic spells for a Mercury retro. They all contain ‘re’ words. Reawaken. Revise. Return. Reapply. Recommit. Review. Reconnect. Revive – especially when it comes to those mind, body, spirit issues. The Now Age for you really does begin with a renewed focus on you, your body and your health. Taking better care of yourself. Looking to what you put in your body. And also, what you expose it to. I’m talking atmospheres, negativity and even toxic thinking. Not just junk food! So, your way forward this month is to start with junk thoughts – and put yourself on a diet from those!

Tune in to what your body is communicating. How your energy goes up or down depending on what you are doing, thinking, consuming or who you are interacting with. What boosts you and what drags you down? Sure, we all have mundane tasks we have to do to get on with the business of living. But are there better ways to do or schedule these? This is in your super-power area, Virgo. You got this!

If you are seeking work or looking to change jobs, the retro rules are lifted from the start of the month. Venus adds a touch of glamour as it arrives in your 6th on the 1st. It is set to enhance any work or wellbeing activity. And if you are seeking work or that new job or way of working, there is a promise in the air of long term moves as Venus meets Saturn on the 6th. Running rings around the competition or even those chores could be part of this. But this also promises rewards for long term efforts or something permanent on offer.

Push forward with those work plans as doors to opportunity open wide or solutions designed to propel you up, up and away out of that rut or drudge factor appear. News could arrive or you could be the one broadcasting it in the form of that submission, application, project or plan or simply shaking up that routine when the Sun and retro Mercury meet on the 8th.

Re-Capture the Love!

The 11th promises all kinds of new beginnings thanks to a new Moon in here which has you looking to how you want to work, live and feel for the future. This new Moon really is future-focussed as it marks the start of the Chinese New Year of the Ox. It just happens to coincide with the merging of Venus and Jupiter on the same day. Venus will then hook up with Mercury on the 13th. As I have said before, this cycle is about creating a life you can fall in love with. And living it each and every day.

As Mercury and Jupiter meet for the second time on the 14th, love could spring from your daily life or literally be found all around you. Recapturing that love could be your V-Day task for settleds. Have you been making enough time for it? Give this priority. Some of you could simply feel how loved you are via friends around now. Or literally feel you have fallen in love with where you live and the lifestyle you are creating. Or even co-creating with someone or people you work and live with.

Valentine’s surprises around emotional satisfaction, living arrangements or family could be your gifts thanks to a beautiful superconjunction in your 7th between Cupido (yes, him with the bow and arrows!), Ceres and a sensitive, loved up Moon. All these square the cosmic and mysterious Galactic Centre in your 4th. Something or someone you love could be here to stay.

The Sun arrives in your 7th from the 18th putting even more focus on partnerships, double acts and duos of all descriptions. Venus rules this house of course and it too lands in here on the 25th. There’s been a certain amount of passion, fire and heat around you all month, Virgo. It would have given you the impulsion to make those daily changes. But it is also firing up the need inside you for something bigger, freer and yes, more exciting. Don’t forget this really does include those work and career factors too.

Remember what I said about this being a special Mercury retrograde? Days to push through resistance or make your move around your career are the 1st when the Sun in your 6th strikes Mars in your 9th, and the 19th when Venus in your 6th makes the same angle to Mars. You don’t have to wait until Mercury heads direct again on the 21st. Doing what you love is a big factor in feeling good about your life each and every day.

Ceres’ arrival in your 8th could see you renegotiating something important such as a new job offer, pay rise or even living arrangements. Perhaps freeing you up to pursue what you really want to do as opposed to what you have to do. Pent up passion or simply your desire to express what you are feeling could make the 25th hotter than Valentine’s Day for you as Mars in your 9th trines Pluto, the final slow-moving planet left in your 5th on the 25th. If you are seeking love, this is also a fab day to double up on your efforts. You’re crackling with the force of attraction now.

Wrap it up

Of course, your moment to bring anything you start this month to a grand conclusion is the full Moon of the 27th in your sign. This full Moon on the 27th is known as the ‘Snow Moon’ – although January’s full Moon is sometimes also called that. It is called the ‘Hunger Moon’ by some native cultures owning to the fact that food was in short supply. February in Romani tradition is called ‘Little black month’ – a reference to its short duration and also the winter depths. We are however now a month away from the spring equinox so remember that.

This marks the end of one cycle and the start of the next. Especially around love, partnerships and all kinds of It Takes Two related activities. It could be this Moon reflects on one person in particular. Or an empty space in your life which needs filling. But what it will shine on is love in some way, shape or form. Love for someone. A space where love can move in. Or simply love of what you do. One over-arching theme of this month is do the small stuff to make way for the big. When it comes to everyday wellbeing, love in all its forms, really is the best medicine!

In a nutshell: Your feel good Now Age wants you to have a daily dose of every day love, Virgo. But the Sun’s arrival in your 7th from the 18th could just bring you the more personal kind.

 

LIBRA

Focus your intentions

Time to fall in love with life

Embrace the pleasure principle!

If ever there was a month filled from start to finish with love and creative potential – this is it, Libra. New beginnings, conceptions, creations, romance and opportunities surround you. Yes, we will still be in a Mercury retrograde until the 21st. But this is a Mercury retrograde like no other. Where people and opportunities can re-appear. Second chances abound. Or alternatives to what you originally thought you wanted turn out to be so much better!

Love will rule the stars

Along with Leo, you are the sign where love rules the stars this Valentine’s month, Libra. How are you going to choose to express this? Venus arrives in your fabulizing 5th at the start of the month. Think passion, love, creation, freedom, music, art, romance, sensuality, pleasure, fun and possibly every single thing that you can imagine that is the complete opposite to Covid related restrictions. Not that this means breaking any rules that keep you and others safe. Love means not just taking care of you, but others too.

What you have imagined, thought about or even feared, could pop up this month simply to show you the power of intention. What we focus on we attract. Once you understand this is a force a bit like gravity you’ll see not just how powerful you can be, but also that its simply like responding to like. So, hone those thoughts but also know that whatever you do draw to you isn’t anything (or anyone!) you can’t handle.

Balance the heart and the head

This may not be negative. But it could well be changing and this may initially present you with a challenge. Especially if this means leaving your comfort zone to get it! What it will ask you to do however is balance your heart with your head. Look at things from every angle. Dates to work this based on what manifests are the 1st when the Sun in your 5th squares Mars in your 8th. The 19th when ruler Venus does the same.

But try to delay final decision until after the 21st. Yes, this is the day Mercury is direct again. But it is also the day Ceres planet of new deals and compromises lands in your 7th. You may be surprised at how you can turn anything around now to your benefit (or mutual benefit!). You are in full power potential mode on the 25th when Mars will trine Pluto, the only slow moving planet left in your 4th of home, family, living arrangements and security. Focus on what really matters to you. Don’t forget, you may attract it but you have the final say whether your answer is a yes or a no.

Love is in the Air and Lucky Stars

Feeling lucky? You should be in the mood to take a chance this month. Jupiter rules luck and is asking you to take a chance. Perhaps it’s letting someone know you like them – the V-Day way or any other. Taking that chance could be around your creative skills, hobbies or applying for that dream job. Lucky breaks are possible. As is getting yourself noticed. Focus on what allows you to sparkle and shine. Showcase this now. Again, this is the power of attraction at work.

Fate plays a role as does timing this month. Venus meets Saturn on the 6th. Saturn rules fate, time, karma and commitments of all kinds. What this is saying is it is time for love, pleasure or even success now.

Your 5th rules children as well as lovers and romance. It is the sign of Aquarius which rules the future. So, if you believe the children whether yours or someone else’s, are indeed part of your future, then you may see young people, babies, millennials or relationships which can bring these into your life feature more than usual this month. Especially on the 8th when the Sun and retro Mercury meet.

This is a fabulous day for reviving or returning to a creative project too. Perhaps updating it. Ideas you can fall in love with, share with others and they embrace too are filled with potential. Are there any locked in your head that need to be let out of play? That website, blog, business, design, art, photography or that stand-up routine for instance? If you can create it, share it.

One word of warning as Cupid is set to go crazy now, firing off those arrows in all directions: If you do not wish to become a parent right now, please take extra precautions to ensure this does not happen. Jupiter likes to expand. In all ways. So, family expansion is one way this can happen. If you want that now, fine especially when ruler Venus and Jupiter meet on the 11th, the same day as the new Moon appears in here.

This is a new Moon of the future and new beginnings. It coincides with the start of the Chinese New Year of the Ox. This is also the day where the planetary activity peaks in here with a total of six planets – Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter and Saturn. Big new beginnings are possible. Focus on what you want love, or doing what you love, to bring for you in the future. Above all, you know what to do now – it’s all about your intention.

Cupid always rings twice!

Missed opportunities or a past love could reappear on the 14th when retrofactor Mercury meets Jupiter for the second time. Don’t forget – Mercury will meet Jupiter again next month when it is direct. So, what I am saying is if something appears but stalls, don’t panic. It’s not over until the Fat Planet sings in March!

For many Librans this could be a day where you and that big love get to celebrate in some way. Or you could receive news or a breakthrough around something you have been aiming for, working towards or wanting for some time. Valentine’s Day brings you a mega-love in between Cupido, Ceres and the Moon in your 6th. They align to the Galactic Centre in your 3rd of news, commerce and communication. This could even deliver something unexpected. But in a good way. And with long term benefits thrown in.

Striking a new deal or bargain may be part of this. Especially if it touches on your work, studies or wellbeing in general. Cosmically charged changes could leave you feeling the love on a daily basis. Astrologers are now beginning to embrace the importance of the Galactic Centre in our charts. Its gravity is so powerful it is literally ‘the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart’. In other words, our entire galaxy spins around it! At its heart is a supermassive black hole. This is where the laws of time and space break down. So, we can also say, what we know or imagine is possible. See how this ties in to the direction those thoughts have taken and what you have focussed on? Focus on the potential wonder.

The 18th has the Sun arrive in your 6th bringing practical matters to the fore. Infusing that everyday routine including self-care with love and also that creativity will be your priority once Venus also arrives on the 25th. It’s not just about feeling the love one day a year. But on all of them. You’ve inspiration to draw on that stretches the boundaries of your imagination on the 27th when the full Moon appears in your 12th.

This Moon is known as the ‘Snow Moon’ – although January’s full Moon is sometimes also called that. It is called the ‘Hunger Moon’ by some native cultures owning to the fact that food was in short supply. February in Romani tradition is called ‘Little black month’ – a reference to its short duration and also the winter depths. We are however now a month away from the spring equinox so remember that. The time when for you love blooms in full force.

Your intuition and insight will be supercharged. Listen to it. Channel it into what your imagination is telling you to create. If it giving you information on a person or situation, act on this. Something could begin now or you could set it in motion, that peaks between May-July. February gives you something or someone to love. With more to come later, Libra.

In a nutshell: Fun, pleasure, creativity, romance. Time to welcome back love and playfulness. Treat these as spiritual pursuits this month. You’ve permission to go and indulge yourself – and those you love, Libra.
