With Venus and Mercury both retrograde for most of last month, 2022 thus far has been more about reviewing the past than facing the future. But February begins with a new moon in Aquarius on the 1st (happening the evening of January 31st on the West Coast) which, though complicated, provides an inspiring fresh slate. Mercury ends its retrograde on the 3rd adding to the building momentum.
The middle of the month has a whole lot of action at once. Mercury, once again moving quite fast, enters Aquarius on the 14th, providing some delightfully weird conversation to our Valentine’s Day (however it is you celebrate…or don’t). Then on the 16th, Mars and Venus conjoin in Capricorn signaling a release after nearly a month of cosmic edging. The full moon in Leo that same night ensures dramatic climaxes both in and out of the bedroom.
Jupiter connects with innovative Uranus on the 17th encouraging us to take risks toward positive change. Then on the 18th, Pisces season begins! Happy birthday to our lovable, imaginative and sensitive space cadets from Mr. Rogers to Olivia Wilde to Rihanna. With the sun in idealist Pisces, the month ends on a more hopeful and otherworldly note than it began. Dreamy, romantic and perfect for an escape.
