We’ve made it through the first month of 2021, and this year already seems to be shaping up to bring more happiness and positivity than we saw last year! You’re probably wondering what you can expect from the shortest month of the year – February – when it comes to the stars.
We start the month out in Aquarius season, welcomed intellectual energy – a harbinger of the future, of change on a global scale that benefits our collective consciousness. This month is all about spontaneity, compassion, humanitarian efforts, and futuristic concepts.
Connecting to your intuition is the best thing you can focus on this month because the Universe is sending you some incredibly delicious messages, and you’ll want to be sure that you can hear them!
An Overview of February 2021
We’ll spend most of this month hanging out in Aquarius, the last Air sign of the astrological year. Like all Air signs, this sign is intellectual and thought-focused, but because Aquarius is ruled by the spontaneous planet Uranus, you can expect a few surprises and flashes of insight this month.
On February 1st, Venus – the planet of love, beauty, and romance – also moves into Aquarius, a transit that urges you to think differently about romance and how you approach your romantic relationships. Couples may even feel encouraged to branch out and try new things (both inside and outside of the bedroom) thanks to the nature of Aquarius’ ruling planet, Uranus, who likes to shake things up.
Continuing the progressive, Aquarian energy is the New Moon in Aquarius, which occurs on February 11th.
New Moons typically bring darker energy or heavy emotions with them, but airy Aquarius helps you detach from those feelings and focus more on manifestation – a New Moon must. Make your New Moon wishes during this transit to start seeing results as soon as the next Full Moon in about two weeks!
And remember, the energy of the New Moon can be felt for a couple of days before and after it takes place, giving you plenty of time to sort your desires and attract exactly what you want in your life.
On February 18th, the energy switches up a bit as the Sun moves into Pisces, marking the first day of Pisces season. Compassionate, empathetic themes are still prevalent thanks to Pisces loving ruler, Neptune. But Neptune also makes this a dreamier season than Aquarius, meaning you may spend a lot of time with your head in the clouds in the near future.
Shortly after that, Venus follows suit, entering Pisces on February 25th – a lovey-dove time of romanticized ideals.
Pisces is the dreamer of the zodiac, which means you’ll probably be feeling sugary sweet on your honey like you could soak in their energy for days and never get full. If you’re single and ready to mingle, be cautious about entering relationships during this transit, as you may subconsciously put that person on a pedestal that will soon tip over.
And in between the Pisces vibrations, on February 20th, Mercury goes direct after three weeks of moving retrograde and playing mischievous tricks on our technology. Let your muscles relax and release the tension because things are about to feel a lot easier to accomplish!
We’ve covered the significant transits influencing our energy during the next month on a macro level; now, let’s take it to the micro-level and look at what each sign can expect in the coming month.

What Does February Mean for You, Based on Your Zodiac Sign?
The airy nature of Aquarius feeds your Fire during the first three quarters of February, Aries, with the progressive energy encouraging you to make changes in your own life and try new things. Because Aquarius is a rather social sign, these changes may revolve around your connections, network, and relationships.
When the Sun moves into Pisces, you may feel more romantic or even sensitive than you’re accustomed to. Try to embrace it.

Transformation is in the air, and you can feel it, Taurus, but that doesn’t mean you like it. You sense that change is coming and you may feel opposed initially, especially if your current routine is fine-tuned to your liking. However, you must open your mind and give the Universe a chance to surprise you.
Try working with green aventurine, a stone that will not only attract abundance and manifest opportunities but one that will help make changes and transitions go as smoothly as possible.

While the airy energy of Aquarius may lead to brilliant ideas, this is not the time to act on them, Gemini, but rather to focus on self-care and healing. You tend to sweep your feelings under the rug, but you’ll have to experience and acknowledge them at some point to move on.

An abundance of Air energy means that you won’t be feeling bogged down by your emotions, Cancer, especially in the first half of the month.
Aquarius encourages you to detach from your feelings and look at them more objectively, allowing you to determine which relationships and situations bring positive emotions into your life. And you must examine those things because once Pisces takes center stage, your emotional reactions are amplified.
Try performing a Full Moon ritual on February 27th to connect more deeply to these healing lunar vibrations. This Full Moon is a time to let go of past pain or upsets, so make a list of everyone you want to forgive and everything you want to move on from right now.

This is an even more social month for you than usual because Aquarian energy is just as loving and charming as yours is, Libra. This may feel like a difficult time if you cannot connect to your loved ones physically, so it’s crucial that you focus on safe and healthy ways to deepen your bonds.
Share your ideas via Zoom calls, call someone up on the phone to check in on them, or start a daily email thread with your best friend.
You’ll feel more connected to the energy of the Universe when you ensure that you’re maintaining these connections, especially towards the end of the month when your ruling planet, Venus, moves into loving Pisces.

This month might bring some tension in your relationships, Scorpio, so it’s important that you try to find balance in your connections. When we move past uncomfortable moments with loved ones, we create more profound, more intimate bonds, so don’t shy away from compassionate confrontation.
It’s much easier to rip the bandaid off now than to let it cling to the wound.
Working on the Heart chakra will guide you towards kindness and gentle delivery. Keep plenty of rose quartz nearby, drink teas with lavender and rose petals, and practice positive, loving affirmations each day.

Aquarius amps up your energy and makes you feel a little wild this month, Sagittarius. You’re always primed and ready for adventure, and you’ll feel an even bigger craving for it for the first half of the month; however, when Pisces energy takes over, you’ll enjoy a more relaxed, languid pace.
Connecting to your intuition is the most important thing to make sure you’re listening to your body and its needs.
While travel restrictions may hamper your adventurous plans, you can always take a trip of the mind by reading an exciting novel or studying a new philosophical subject that piques your interest.
