Talking about a busy start, am I right? With that, we’ve got Valentine’s Day on the 14th, and Mercury ready to station into retrograde starting from February 16th. The Sun will enter Pisces on the 19th, and another new moon is coming up on the 23rd. It’ll be a packed month, that’s for sure. So get your energy levels up in case you just completed a successful Dry January, be optimistic and get prepared for the future of the year.
But before we divulge any more predictions, keep scrolling to find out what February has in store for you, the surprises you might encounter, and more!
January 20th – February 18th
Starting with a very happy birthday month dear Aquarius! While January has been a heavy start to the new year, it’s finally time to take a breather and start enjoying your birthday. Though it’s about you, as mentioned above the predictions sound rather busy. Between full and new moons, Mercury going retrograde midway, stress and anxiety levels can get high. Use your spare time to get in a quick meditation or workout, and take a moment to check up on your finances – it’s always important to get a good idea of where you stand!
February 19th – March 20th
Take a break before your birthday month starts on February 19th. You’ll be off to a busy start with the Sun entering your sign, and Mercury will surprise you on the 3rd. This will get you mentally ready to start getting things done – especially the ones you’ve been avoiding or holding off on. The holidays are over an it’s time to get back in control. Also use this time to take care of yourself and think about what’s to come – are you satisfied with yourself? Is there something you could work on?
March 21st – April 19th
February has got you in good spirits, dear Aries! You’re off to a good start – Venus entering your sign on the 7th and Valentine’s Day celebrations just a week later. If you were concerned about your career over the holidays, we’re here to tell you there’s no more reason to. You’ll notice a shift and you’re finally getting heard by the rest of your team. Things are about to change, so make sure you take some downtime to embrace it all, it’s much needed!
April 20th – May 20th
It may sound like a pattern, but alone time can be more beneficial than you’d assume. Although many of us prefer to be around others, there’s nothing like being home alone or out on a walk and just letting your thoughts run free. Especially before a couple of busy days coming up, it’s crucial to take some time to yourself and reflect. Before you know it, you’ll be answering RSVPs to all your friend’s celebrations and schedule will be busier than ever. Just remember, you don’t have to say yes to everything, but if you do, the new moon on the 23rd presents you with the perfect opportunity!
May 21st – June 20th
February is going to be a good month for you dear Geminis! Mercury entering Pisces will bring positive and creative vibes your way – not forgetting your social life keeping your busy and your dreams are at an arm’s reach. Watch out for the moons popping in this month, they might leave you feeling responsible for things you don’t wish, and Mercury going retrograde on the 16th will get you down, so remember to feel thankful!
June 21st – July 22nd
Not feeling on top of your game ever since ringing into the new year? No surprise there – even though you’re considered one of the most optimistic signs in the zodiac, the past weeks weren’t your strongest. The full moon is bound to lift your spirits, and it might be time to take a hard look at your career – is your current job really the one you want to be in? Think about it and book a meeting with your boss; just make sure to get that done before Mercury going retrograde to avoid any surprises!
July 23rd – August 22nd
We’ve got a few things to warn you about dear Leos! But before we get to that part, if you’ve been feeling particularly cheery it’s because the moon is aligned with your Sun sign – rising your emotions and creating a pleasant dynamic for those around you. Speaking of emotions, February officially marks the month to ditch your ex and we suggest doing that before Mercury goes retrograde – it’ll give you that perfect push to get out the other way with great validation!
August 23rd – September 22nd
You and your pal Cancer may have something in common: a rough start to the year. Maybe it’s work, maybe you’re feeling overwhelmed with tasks, or perhaps you just need to get your health in check. Start with spending some more time outdoors – say walk home from work for example and get some movement in. Now that you’ve got that covered, prepare for the second half of February, Valentine’s Day and Mercury going retrograde. Listen, everyone gets affected by both but it depends how YOU will deal with the situation, it’s up to you!
September 23rd – October 22nd
A close circle of friends and family can be both pleasant and overwhelming at the same time. Feeling more like the latter the past weeks? The full moon on the 9th is bound to relax the ongoing tension and help you navigate through the mess – perhaps it’s time for some much needed BFF quality time. Since the above hasn’t been going so well, don’t expect the rest of the month to be a walk in the park. If anything, Mercury going retrograde will hinder your communication levels. Watch out!
October 23rd – November 21st
It’s all about your professional life this month, dear Scorpio! The full moon coming up on the 9th will be a significant day for your career, and it might be worth looking back at what your goals were 6 months ago. The entire month of February will be a busy time for you – between moons and Mercury going retrograde, the more you focus the better. Just don’t forget setting aside some time for yourself – start a new workout class or a new book, any distraction will do!
November 22nd – December 21st
No need to wait for Mercury going retrograde on the 16th, the beginning of the month already presents itself as a whirlwind to you dear Sag! Between Mercury entering Pisces on the 3rd and the full moon on the 9th, it’s safe to say you need to book a vacation ASAP! Holidays may sound relaxing and fine, but when Mercury enters retrograde on the 16th, nothing will seem mellow anymore – so brace yourself. Use the end of the month to reconnect with old pals that live far away, and get some meditation in for all the above!
December 22nd – January 19th
You know how you’re supposed to take a second and set intentions every once in a while? Where do you think that leaves you today? The full moon on the 9th will clear the picture for you and while you’re well aware that nothing is ever set in stone, there’s no need to compare yourself with your peers. You do you, as they say! Though you’re known for your communicative skills and honesty, Mercury in retrograde may create a bump in the road – it’s totally normal though so just focus on yourself and take deep breaths. No surprise actions please!
