February 2021 Horoscopes
Our shared planetary picture
A gathering of half of the planets in our solar system in Aquarius this month, further reinforces the Aquarian Age that we have just entered into. We have to think more collectively and Mercury retrograde until 21st is part of our need to review how we proceed.
Jupiter and Saturn are presenting us with opportunities and the possibility of consolidating them if we can work together. Venus in Aquarius until 25th even makes this pleasurable. Friendships, groups, community and humanitarian ideals are all more important now than ever. Even with restrictions in place, we can access a sense of belonging online and realise we are still part of a wide and wonderful world. And New Moon on 11th is a good time to join a new group or campaign and find your tribe.
Saturn planet of restrictions, structure and lessons is square (at 90° to and in conflict with) Uranus planet of change, disruption and revolution until 18th. This is a clash of the old and the new, although strangely serious Saturn is in a progressive sign and erratic Uranus is in a conservative sign. Both are insistent on change but in different ways. These two planets square three times this year (again in June and November), so the issues which arise this month will not go away. Much has to be resolved.
As well as collectively, this is happening to us all on an individual level too, in different areas of life for each sign.
So what will this mean for us all?
Read the horoscope for your Sun sign and your Ascendant sign if you know it.
Aries: It is all happening in your 11th House this month. Five planets and the New Moon are all focused here which means friends, groups, community, organisations, campaigns and humanitarian ideals are going to be HUGE! Any or all of these will be sources of pleasure as Venus glides through from 1st – 25th. Jupiter is bringing opportunities and Saturn is consolidating your growth.
You may have been rethinking one or more of these areas of life since Mercury went retrograde here at the end of last month. When Mercury goes direct again on 21st you can apply any conclusions you have come to.
Your ruling planet Mars wants to continue pushing ahead in your finance zone but Uranus planet of change, disruption and revolution (also in your finance zone) is squaring Saturn from 1st – 18th. This throws up conflict between your previous position on money, possessions, security and values and this new awakening in your thinking about the bigger picture. Collective projects grab your imagination and you may be feeling more political than usual. Could your values be changing? (Yes they could… ).
New Moon on 11th marks a new cycle in your collective awareness and would be a great time to join or start a group, movement or campaign. Groups usually need leaders and being a natural pioneer, you may find a new role or even find your long, lost, true tribe. Revel in this new sense of belonging!
Taurus: Half of the planets are gathered at the top of your solar chart this month. This means the BIG focus is father, career and social status. Your ruling planet Venus is also smoothing things along until 25th. People in authority are likely to favour you. If you need their help – just ask. Ambitions should go well too. Jupiter could offer opportunities and Saturn helps you to build on them. The waves part easily for you to make headway!
You may have been rethinking your ambitions since the end of last month when Mercury went retrograde. Mercury goes direct once again on 21st and you can start to move forward once again with your new ideas. Look out for good ideas on 14th too when Mercury and Jupiter meet briefly. New Moon on 11th falls in your father, career and social status zone too. This marks a new cycle in your public life. Make decisions that will help your worldly standing in the month and year ahead.
From 18th the Sun moves into your friends, groups, community and humanitarian ideals zone and Venus follows on 25th. Make time for friends enjoy interacting in groups, even if that has to be online.
Mars continues to forge ahead in your sign all month, giving you energy, stamina and determination to forge ahead. But Saturn, one of the planets in your professional sphere squares Uranus in your sign from 1st – 18th. This adds pressur. For you to achieve status in the world, you will have to change. Taureans are often not lovers of change, unless it was their idea but now circumstances or your ambitions demand that change. Go with it!
Gemini: The focus is on your travel, studies and philosophy zone this month. Five planets are urging you to explore the wider world and all it has to offer. If current restrictions do not allow this physically, you can still explore online and even undertake a course of studies. ‘Meeting’ and learning from people from different cultures or belief systems is another rich avenue to explore. The great outdoors – the locally accessible face of the earth can also be exciting to explore.
Legal matters may loom large or you will feel pulled to reflect in depth on principles, ethics and perhaps your own spiritual development. Your current ideas or opinions maybe challenged around 5th – 7th and New Moon on 11th marks a new cycle here. Is there a course of study or consciousness-raising practice that you could start?
You have probably been thinking about some of these matters since your ruling planet Mercury went retrograde at the end of last month. You should have a better idea of how to proceed once Mercury goes direct once again on 21st.
Saturn is part of the planetary coqtail stimulating your higher mind and squares up to Uranus in your 12th House for the first 18 days of the month. A breakthrough is trying to take place. This could be about compassion, spirituality, healing or original creativity behind the scenes.
Venus starts to smooth your path of worldly status from 25th. Take a fresh look at your ambitions while it is up there!
Cancer: A huge gathering of planets in your 8th House bring deep experiences around joint funds, ‘the money of others’, sharing and intimacy. New Moon on 11th marks a fresh cycle here and can mark a birth of some kind. Venus helps to create intimacy and also enables you to speak helpfully to others in crisis. Collective projects grab your imagination too and you may find yourself feeling more political than usual. If you have been thinking of joining something, now would be a great time!
Mercury went retrograde at the end of last month in this same area of your solar chart, bringing about a rethink in one or more of these same areas. Mercury goes direct again on 21st which should help you to decide how to look at things and how to proceed.
From 1st – 18th Saturn and Uranus are square which presents a dilemma. This could be between shared funds or ‘the money of others’ and group, community or humanitarian ideals. You may also find yourself dealing with taxes, debts and inheritances too. Have you made a will or thought about that? How you share your resources now, matters too. Alternatively whether someone should be a friend or intimate partner could be a question very much on your mind.
You will be feeling more philosophical from 18th as planets slowly start to drift into your travel, deep study and philosophy zone. From 25th Venus brings pleasure from studying different cultures or meeting people of different ethnicities or belief systems, albeit online. Despite the present restrictions, you are still part of a wide and wonderful world.
Leo: For any lonesome Leos, February is going to be quite a month! Five out of ten planets are in your opposite sign of relationships and partnerships. And Leos already in relationships will also benefit from this. Venus is gliding through until 25th so harmony and pleasure are on the cards too.
You may have been reviewing your position on relationships and partnerships (including business partnerships) since Mercury went retrograde at the end of last month. Mercury goes direct again on 21st and you can start to apply your conclusions.
Saturn, one of the planets gathering in your partnerships zone, squares up to Uranus until 18th. This presents a dilemma between the need for partnership and the corresponding need for a change to your father, career and social status zone. With Mars still in this part of your chart, you have the energy and determination to push your agenda ahead. You just have to work out what that is!
New Moon on 11th marks a fresh start in relationships and partnerships. Define what are you hoping to find here too and play your part in helping it to happen.
Virgo: Your natural affinity for work, health and service to others is the massive focus this month. Half of the planets in the solar system are urging you to look deeply and afresh at your well-being. Your daily routine, how you care for yourself on a physical level in terms of nutrition, sleep and exercise and what you include in your daily routine are all up for scrutiny and change! This is the physical side of self-nurture. Give it your full attention.
Venus makes relations with colleagues and daily companions pleasant until 25th. And your daily rituals can be a source of pleasure too! You may have been thinking about all of this recently, since your ruling planet Mercury went retrograde at the end of last month. What do you need to adjust? Reviewing how much time and attention you give to physical movement can be helpful. Having a positive mindset is key too. Mercury goes direct once again on 21st, when you can start to apply the conclusions of this review.
New Moon on 11th is the start of your Work and Health New Year. This is the best time to start a new regime. You are so good at caring for everyone else. Now it is time to do the same for yourself. Do it!
Saturn squares Uranus from 1st – 18th which creates a dilemma between your daily reality, your sense of well-being and belief system. Legal matters, publishing, travel or cultural differences connected to work or health could come up too. Work opportunities or restrictions or health matters could challenge your beliefs, principles or ethics.
Relationships and partnerships start to attract your attention later in the month. And Full Moon creates an emotional high tide around 26th, in the lead up to Full Moon in your sign in the morning of 27th. This may stir up conflict between your individual needs and partnership needs.
Libra: Half of the planets are in your 5th House of romance, children and creativity for most of the month. Your ruling planet Venus is here too, bestowing pleasure and ease from 1st – 25th. Saturn and Uranus both get involved with Venus around 5th – 7th which could be both challenging and exciting at the same time. This is good for creativity but could bring up a dilemma of whether to stay with the status quo or leap into a new adventure or take your chance with a certain someone… New Moon on 11th marks a fresh cycle here too.
Mercury went retrograde at the end of last month in this same area of your solar chart. This will have called for a review in your thinking about love affairs, creativity or children. Communications may have been difficult in these areas too but your way of thinking about them should get easier after Mercury goes direct on 21st.
Saturn squares up to Uranus from 1st – 18th which presents quandaries around your partner’s finances or ‘the money of others’ and children or creativity. Should you let things continue as they are or bring about a change?
From 18th work, health and service to others take on more importance. This is good for relations with colleagues and daily companions and you will find pleasure in your rituals and daily routine. Taking on a voluntary role could be pleasurable too. Where could you help?
Scorpio: Half of the planets gather at the bottom of your solar chart this month, in your 4th House. This means mother, home, roots and foundations are your most important focus. Venus is part of this gathering too until 25th. So home in every sense should be a source of pleasure, be that the building you live in, its emotional dynamics, your country or Mother Nature and our planet. Mother figures take on a fresh importance too and your urge to nurture others will be strong. Express it.
You may have been thinking about some of these things since Mercury went retrograde at the end of last month. It goes direct again on 21st and you can start to apply the conclusions you have come to. Deep lessons are taking place here over the coming two years and we need you to do your part in helping this to happen.
New Moon on 11th also marks a new cycle here. Make resolutions that will help you to create and attract the comfort that you need. Self-nurture and personal development should also be part of your plan. Counselling or therapy to explore your roots and emotional patterns can be hugely helpful. Make sure nutrients and emotionally nourishing food are on your menu too.
Saturn squares Uranus from 1st – 18th which creates the need for change in some way. Deep inner-needs are generating an urge for change and awakening in relationships and partnerships. These are big monumental shifts and not a quick switch. Saturn and Uranus will be returning twice more this year, so whatever does not ‘go in’ now, will be repeated until the message hits home.
Sagittarius: Communications is your big focus this month. And if charm is needed to smooth negotiations, you are full of it. But Mercury is retrograde until 21st, so take care before then, that you are clear in all you say and double-check others have fully understood you and vice versa.
You may have been thinking recently about different forms of communications and how you deal with them and perhaps also physical movement. Drealings with neighbours and siblings could be part of this too.
New Moon falls in your communications zone too on 11th. Are there any trading, speaking or writing projects you would like to try out, study or teach in the year ahead? This could expand the mind, widen your channels of communication, help with trading and keep your thinking buoyant. Keep an eye open for good ideas around 14th too. Your products, ideas and words (spoken or written) could start to reach a wider audience. Lay down the plans and get started!
Saturn is also carrying out a communications review and squares Uranus until 18th. This brings up existing tension between your mindset and your work, health or need to be of service to others. How your thoughts impact your body could also be an area to explore. Communications with colleagues or daily companions (including pets) might need to change too. Whether it is work or health-related, something has to change.
Venus adds ease and pleasure to your mother and home zone from 25th. Personal development and self-nurture can be enjoyable too. Now what about that fantastic food project?
Capricorn: Five planets are focused on your 2nd House of money, possessions and security this month, including Venus from 1st – 25th which helps to make your finances look rosier. Jupiter and Saturn are part of the line up which suggests opportunities and the ability to consolidate them are very much around.
Mercury went retrograde at the end of last month, leading to a rethink about all of this. But Mercury goes direct again on 21st and you can then start to put your conclusions into action. Keep an eye open on 14th too when Mercury and Jupiter can come up with good ideas.
Your ruling planet Saturn is squaring up to Uranus from 1st – 18th which presents a dilemma around finances and romance, children or creativity. Whether to go with tradition or branch out in your own way could be a big question.
New Moon on 11th marks a new cycle in your finance zone. Draw up a budget for the year ahead that supports your true values. And yes, they are changing…
Aquarius: The Sun ball remains in your court this month until 18th, radiating warmth, optimism and freer self-expression. Mercury lends you mental energy too. In fact half of the planets in our solar system are in your sign for much of this month! This is all about identity and who you now truly are.
Mercury went retrograde in your sign at the end of last month, so you may have already been giving this some thought. Meanwhile be very clear in all your communications and make sure you have fully understood others and vice versa. Revisiting how much time and attention you give to physical movement can be helpful too. When Mercury goes direct again on 21st, you can be more relaxed about communications and start to put your ideas into action. Keep a look out for good ideas on 14th too. Venus is in your sign until 25th, making you darling of the zodiac. Your charms will be at their highest and you will attract others to you.
Saturn in your sign squares up to Uranus from 1st – 18th. This creates tension between who you are becoming and how well your home, its dynamics, relations with mother-figures and your present position on self-nurture serve you… This is the first of three such transits this year. These issues are not going to go away. Give them your attention. Mars is even on hand, offering you energy to do something about your roots and foundations (past or present).
New Moon on 11th in your sign, marks the start of your Personal New Year. Make decisions that will help to generate what you hope to find in your emotional life in the month and years ahead. Many Happy Lunar Returns! The world is looking fresh and bright. And half of the planets in the solar system are backing you. The stage is set for you. Take heart and reach for the stars. Look! Is that a new you on the horizon?
Pisces: Energy levels may have been low recently but that is about to change. The month before our birthday we are often at low ebb as the Sun has been away from us for the longest time. The good news is the Sun is bringing fresh energy and a sense of renewal to you from 18th!
Your birthday whether this month or next is your personal new year and a more meaningful time to make resolutions for the year ahead than January 1st. Many Happy Solar Returns! It is also the perfect time to explore your planets for the year ahead with a good astrologer!
Your main focus this month is your 12th House which is naturally ruled by your sign. So much is happening internally. It could be good to get support from a counsellor or therapist to help you to navigate it all. The 12th House rules the pain and suffering of others, institutions (prisons and hospitals etc) charities, compassion, healing, the collective unconscious and creativity behind the scenes.
Opportunities to understand your inner-workings are on offer and you should seek them out. Spiritual practices can be put in place too. You may have been thinking about some of these matters as Mercury has been carrying out a review here since late last month. Mercury goes direct once again on 21st and you can start to apply your conclusions.
Mars is providing lots of mental energy but there may be a clash between your rational mind and your unconscious as Saturn squares Uranus from 1st – 18th. This is another area to be untangled. It can also be powerful fuel for creative work which can be a therapeutic outlet.
There may be conflict between your individual needs and partnership needs around 26th, in the lead up to Full Moon in your opposite sign in the morning of 27th. But your charms are at their height once Venus glides into your sign from 25th. Better warn others you are a heart-melter and perhaps a heart-breaker too!
