The year kicked off with some pretty tumultuous cosmic energy going back to October 2022. You may be feeling pretty gutted and exhausted and, while I can’t alleviate that, I can at least bring you some perspective in knowing that it’s not just you.
Luckily, February bears a brighter tone as we shift into an Aquarian themed month. You’ll likely find yourself wanting to be more honest with yourself and others, and there will be a lot of healthy, friendly, intellectual and communicative energy in the air.
Venus, which rules over our desires, moves into the sign of Pisces. This means we’ll be looking for compassionate connections and likely have a heightened sensitivity this month.
Mars retrograde, which began in October, had us looking inwards and examining how we relate to others. This retrograde ended in January, and, this month, we’re graced with a fateful moment to implement that knowledge.
We have a new and full moon on the Aquarius—Leo axis occurring in the first half of February. The lunar cycle will highlight the relationships that need to evolve or be left behind. By the full moon in Leo on Feb. 5, we will want to pursue that which ignites us passionately.
The end of February will revolve around a new moon in Pisces which will prepare us for the energies of March. Aquarius and Pisces play a big role in our astrology this year. Expect the themes of this month to follow us throughout 2023.
