It’s here, the moment we have all been waiting for! After a period of deep rest and introspection, the stars align to help us manifest our dreams!
February begins with a bang with the arrival of the February 5 full moon. Happening in dramatic Leo, this event comes with an intense configuration very similar to the one we experienced in late 2012 and throughout 2022. It is a clash between the past and the future, so if you see yourself at a crossroads, take the new option, regardless of how scary it is. The universe will reward your courage!
The highlight of the month is having Venus—the planet of pleasure—in its strongest position in the sky. In astrology, Venus rules money, romance, art, and social interactions—and until February 19, our goals in these areas will all be within reach! February 8 and February 15 are particularly positive for chasing a cherished dream. This year, Valentine’s Day promises to be oh so sweet. So even if you don’t particularly love this holiday, this is one of those times when you might decide to put on those rose-colored glasses and surrender to love!
Aquarius season comes to an end when the Sun begins to illuminate the skies of Pisces on February 18. For the next four weeks, themes of creativity, romance, intuition, and connection will ripple through the collective. The very next day, we welcome this month’s new moon in Pisces. Following the suit of last month’s new moon, it brims with possibility. Today, make a list of wishes, as the universe might just listen and surprise you at some moment in time over the next six months.
