Welcome to your February Horoscope! While January served up a borderline cliché new year new me vibe giving us space to revamp our schedules and set up our routines, February is when it gets weird. We’re still living in the 2020s after all.

This strange month really gets started on the 5th when communication planet Mercury joins the sun in open-minded Aquarius. Then action planet Mars enters Aquarius on the 13th followed by love planet Venus on the 16th. Power planet Pluto also entered Aquarius back on January 20th. With these inner planet entrances, Pluto’s usually more atmospheric powers of transformation are felt on the daily. Things you’ve been slow and stubborn to change spin in new directions almost instantly under this influence. This is felt especially on the 9th with a new moon in Aquarius that forces us to go with the ever-changing flow.

Pisces season begins on the 18th. Happy Solar Return to our compassionate and creative babes in good company with Rihanna, Drew Barrymore and Jon Hamm. Mercury follows the sun into the mutable water sign on the 23rd giving us a more poetic point of view.

The month wraps up on a serious note with a full moon in practical Virgo on the 24th, followed by a rare triple conjunction of the sun, Mercury and Saturn on the 28th. After weeks of thinking outside the box, February ends with us committing to projects and making plans for the next stage of innovation.

(March 21 - April 19)

  • New Moon in Aquarius (2/9): Successful networking happy hour
  • Full Moon in Virgo (2/24): Take home a new foster kitty
  • Other Key Dates: 2/7, 2/13, 2/14, 2/22, 2/27

It’s good to remember that you’ve got friends. With the sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars all moving through your social sector this month, most of your energy is being put into volunteering, planning events and building your community. This is notable because friendship not so long ago felt hard to come by. Both 2021 and 2022 were particularly lonely years for you and all the invitations pouring in now shouldn’t be taken for granted. Make this your month of yes so that later in the year, you can focus on fine tuning your inner circle.

Love Horoscope: Forget Valentine’s Day—mark the 22nd as a date for fresh starts and vow renewals in your closest relationships. Relationship planets Venus and Mars meet up in the sky on this day for the first time since March 2022. What relationship phase was starting then and how is that wrapping up this month? Next month’s eclipse season will bring further big changes for your love life, but for now, lean into passion and enjoy the ride.

Money Horoscope: What was your relationship to money back in March of 2022? Think about how much you’ve grown since then. You’re now at another juncture where you must ask yourself, what’s worth a little debt?

(April 20 - May 20)

  • New Moon in Aquarius (2/9): First day of a job hunt
  • Full Moon in Virgo (2/24): A very sexy second date
  • Other Key Dates: 2/6, 2/13, 2/16, 2/17, 2/22, 2/24

It’s time for you to step into the spotlight. The new moon in Aquarius on the 9th is a chance for you to set goals for your career and public image over the next six months. With Mercury, Venus and Mars also traveling through your public image sector throughout February, you’re putting your whole heart and soul into making a statement and (hopefully) making a difference. Just remember to make time to relax too. If you can’t find a moment for yourself, the full moon in Virgo on the 24th forces you to let your hair down and have some fun.

Love Horoscope: Breakthroughs and breakdowns in your closest relationships occur when Venus and Mars meet up on the 22nd: an aspect that both stokes passions and stirs drama. The last time these two met in the sky was March 2022 so it’s been awhile since you’ve had this kind of reckoning. This influence lets you see your love life with fresh eyes. How would you like to move forward?

Money Horoscope: As Mercury meets Pluto in your career sector on the 5th, you’re compelled to set up a meeting with your boss and ask for a raise. You usually shy away from these tricky conversations, but right now your worth is undeniable. Ask for what you’re owed.

(May 21 - June 20)

  • New Moon in Aquarius (2/9): Book your summer travel
  • Full Moon in Virgo (2/24): Invite everyone over for game night
  • Other Key Dates: 2/2, 2/5, 2/10, 2/16, 2/23, 2/28, 2/29

There’s so much to explore this month! Opportunities are endless! You’re traveling and learning and getting back into a serious meditation practice. You’re always seeking information but there’s something different about it this time, something more intense. You’re going deeper into the research than ever before. Things take a turn for the poetic when your ruling planet Mercury moves into Pisces on the 23rd highlighting your compassion as a leader. Your ability to think outside the box is finally being recognized. On the 28th, you get some well-earned respect that comes with a promotion.

Love Horoscope: February is more about self improvement than it is about growing through relationships. This month continues the trend of missed connections and bad luck on the apps. The full moon in Virgo on the 24th highlights how far you’ve come in cultivating your own private life and how comfortable you are in your own skin.

Money Horoscope: Travel, education and spiritual pursuits are what you plan to spend money on this month, but your biggest budget line ends up being your house. Whether you’re buying new furniture, updating your kitchen or splurging on Moroccan rugs, the intentions you set for a more comfortable space back in September are finally becoming a reality.

(June 21 - July 22)

  • New Moon in Aquarius (2/9): Auspicious date to find a new accountant
  • Full Moon in Virgo (2/24): Road trip with your bestie
  • Other Key Dates: 2/2, 2/6, 2/28

This isn’t an easy month for you, Cancer. Even when things are rewarding, they’re heavy. Every win comes with a requisite loss. The sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars all spend time in your shared resources sector making it so every decision isn’t yours alone. Whether you’re arguing with your girlfriend, going through negotiations with your business partner or stressing with your siblings about your Mom’s health, nothing feels like it’s yours alone. Thankfully, at the full moon in Virgo on the 24th, a quick trip out of town takes your mind off your troubles and helps you plan for the future.

Love Horoscope: Much of this month is focused on relationships for you, Cancer, but it’s less about romance and more about power dynamics. Things ease up once Pisces season begins on the 18th, and on the 28th, you’re able to release the tension and get back to planning dates.

Money Horoscope: Money is a touchy subject for you this month, and while it’s still Aquarius season, you might be faced with some unexpected expenses that have you digging into your savings. Just as it does for your love life, Pisces season (from the 18th) brings relief to your bank account. How much can you splurge on your next adventure?

(July 23 - Aug 22)

  • New Moon in Aquarius (2/9): Promises are made
  • Full Moon in Virgo (2/24): Wardrobe upgrades thanks to shopping sales
  • Other Key Dates: 2/8, 2/18, 2/28

Aquarius season always highlights how committed you are to your closest relationships. It feels good to be able to show up for others, but when was the last time you really showed up for yourself? The first half of the month highlights all the ways partnerships have both helped you grow and held you back. Then once Pisces season begins on the 18th, you need to either double down on the investment or move on. If what’s holding you back from letting go is the idea of a sunk cost, then that’s all the more reason to walk away. Commit to relationships meant to flourish.

Love Horoscope: The new moon on the 9th is a moment for you to set intentions alone or with your partner about what you need from a relationship. Things heat up when Mars enters your relationship sector on the 13th stirring up drama, but then Venus enters it on the 16th to smooth over any major conflict.

Money Horoscope: The full moon in Virgo on the 24th highlights your finances. If you’re not yet getting a raise or seeing a profit, it might be time to rethink the plan. The end of the month is also a great time to pitch to investors, apply for loans or consolidate your debt.

(August 23 - September 23)

  • New Moon in Aquarius (2/9): New co-worker in the office
  • Full Moon in Virgo (2/24): All eyes on you!
  • Other Key Dates: 2/5, 2/10, 2/16, 2/23, 2/28, 2/29

Aquarius season is always a relentless grind for you, and this one is an all-time slog. With the sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars all spending time in your work sector, you have a full plate of errands and responsibilities all month coming from all areas of life. The new moon in Aquarius on the 9th is a chance for you to step back and revamp your schedule. Even when things are busy, you deserve ease! After the full moon in your sign on the 24th brings you back into your body, your focus shifts to romance. An important connection has a make-or-break moment on the 28th. Are you ready to commit?

Love Horoscope: Pisces season (from the 18th) is always your most relationship-focused month. Though it’s easy to fall into a limerent fantasy this time of year, in 2024, you’re focused on getting serious and making the right choices for your love life. Sometimes the “boring” (aka reliable) option is what’s meant to be.

Money Horoscope: Money is steady this month, but you also might feel like you’re grinding too hard for the size of your paycheck. Next month brings opportunities to look for new jobs or ask for a raise, but for now, don’t work yourself into the ground just to prove yourself.

(September 23 - October 21)

  • New Moon in Aquarius (2/9): Try out a fancy restaurant on a first date
  • Full Moon in Virgo (2/24): Take a nap / go offline
  • Other Key Dates: 2/6, 2/13, 2/16, 2/17, 2/22, 2/24

So far, 2024 has made you keenly aware of the cracks in your foundation. But instead of going back to the drawing board once again this month, your assignment is to have some fun. The sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars all spend at least half the month in your pleasure sector so whether you’re dating around, cultivating creative projects or spending more time with your kids, everything in your life must spark joy. Remember that happiness doesn’t have to be so rare. What if you commit to making joy your default setting?

Love Horoscope: With the sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars all spending at least half of the month in your romance sector, there’s no time like the present to prioritize your love life. The new moon in Aquarius on the 9th has you seeing some flirtations with fresh eyes. Then on the 22nd, the timing is right to divulge your crush and see where things go.

Money Horoscope: Venus and Mars meet up for the first time since March 2022 on the 22nd, and for you this is a reset not only for your romantic life, but also for your finances. So much of the last few years has been a game of playing catch-up and now it’s onto the next set of challenges.

(October 22 - November 21)

  • New Moon in Aquarius (2/9): Window shop for a new couch
  • Full Moon in Virgo (2/24): Wild night out with the besties
  • Other Key Dates: 2/13, 2/14, 2/22, 2/27

What’s going on with you this month is absolutely no one’s business. You’re generally a private person but February takes that to an extreme. It’s not that you’re depressed or even feeling melancholy, you’d just rather keep these developments to yourself. The new moon in Aquarius on the 9th allows you to set intentions around cultivating your privacy and home life over the next six months. Then once Pisces season begins on the 18th, you’re ready to invite some romance into your world.

Love Horoscope: Love and sex planets Venus and Mars meet up for the first time since March 2022 on the 22nd. This is a chance to reset your romantic life for the first time in two years. Tread lightly because this influence might take you on a nostalgia bender and tempt you to dig into the archive for comfort and relief. Before you give in and text your ex, think about the consequences.

Money Horoscope: You’re considering a big purchase with your business or romantic partner that will push both your relationship and your finances to the next level. The logistics around this get complicated around the 10th before an unexpected development on the 16th allows you to wait it out as you consider further options.

(November 22 - December 21)

  • New Moon in Aquarius (2/9): Refresh your phone settings
  • Full Moon in Virgo (2/24): Making headlines!
  • Other Key Dates: 2/10, 2/24, 2/27, 2/29

Constant coffee dates and appointments fill your calendar this month while extra assignments at work take up the rest of your time. Though it’s sad to walk away from friendships, when you’re this busy it becomes clear which draining connections you have to let go. The new moon in Aquarius on the 9th offers a chance to walk away with grace. Once Pisces season begins on the 18th, you enter your hermit era and move all your appointments to your couch. This is true each day in the latter half of the month except for the 24th which brings a full moon in your public image sector that forces you out of your pajamas and onto the stage.

Love Horoscope: If you’re single, you’re likely to meet someone interesting via a friend this month, especially on the 5th when passions are high. Just be careful not to get obsessed with someone you barely know. Your busy schedule forces you to take things slow.

Money Horoscope: Just when you finally feel like you’re in a comfortable position at work, you’re ready to change careers again. The full moon in Virgo on the 24th brings great recognition for your talents that lead to some interesting networking opportunities on the 28th. You don’t have to switch things up immediately but see where these offers take you.

(December 22 - January 19)

  • New Moon in Aquarius (2/9): Great finds at the clothing swap
  • Full Moon in Virgo (2/24): Last minute packing for vacation
  • Other Key Dates: 2/28

Think back to December 2020. Yes, we were still in the midst of lockdown uncertainty, but what was just beginning for you back then? What goals were you setting around your values and finances? Your focus right now is on building wealth and providing for your family. Your hard work is paying off and also inspiring some of your closest friends to do the same. By the end of the month, you’re finding your flow, learning how to take more breaks and be generous with your time. Give yourself the gift of ease.

Love Horoscope: With Jupiter still in your romance sector, you’re enjoying another month of sweetness and positive vibes. The full moon in Virgo on the 24th finds you in the midst of planning a trip with a lover. It’s scary to think so far in the future but you deserve this kind of love.

Money Horoscope: So much of your energy this month is focused on money and finances. The week surrounding the new moon in Aquarius on the 9th is a great time to close out your books from 2023 and set money goals for 2024. Be open to some unexpected options for getting more cash.

(January 20 - February 18)

  • New Moon in Aquarius (2/9): New moon, new you!
  • Full Moon in Virgo (2/24): Is it time to get a new therapist?
  • Other Key Dates: 2/28

You like attention more than you let on, but you’re getting so much of it right now that it’s overwhelming. The new moon in Aquarius on the 9th is your opportunity to set intentions for your health, image and style over the next six months. Who do you want to see when you look in the mirror? Mars in your sign from the 13th heats things up and brings on extra stress, but luckily Venus then enters your sign on the 16th amping up your beauty while cooling things down. Stay true to yourself through it all and you will be rewarded.

Love Horoscope: You’re getting lots of love and admiration from all directions this month and that includes a little bit of romance. You’re usually attracted to people who are the polar opposite of you but meet someone unexpected on the 8th who has a ton of shared interests. Trust in your shared values and see where it goes.

Money Horoscope: The full moon in Virgo on the 24th lights up your shared resources sector and highlights how much your assets have grown since September. The end of the month brings a lineup of planets in your finance sector to help you finally stick to a budget.

(February 19 - March 20)

  • New Moon in Aquarius (2/9): Delete Instagram from your phone
  • Full Moon in Virgo (2/24): A sweet proposal
  • Other Key Dates: 2/10, 2/18, 2/23,  2/24, 2/27, 2/29

The few weeks before your birthday are usually quite existential and this year is no different. February is a void month, at least until your season begins on the 18th. With most of the planets floating through Aquarius and your unconscious sector, you’re either blissfully on retreat or worried about too many things that are out of your control. Probably a little bit of both. That being said, there’s a lot of magic that comes when you surrender. What if all it takes to get what you want is to stop pushing so hard?

Love Horoscope: The full moon in Virgo does two great things for you: 1) it snaps you back to reality after a few weeks of living in la la land, and 2) it brings a breakthrough moment for your closest relationships. Whether you’re ready to commit or it’s time to split up, the answer will be clear by the 24th.

Money Horoscope: Be careful with your spending this month, especially after the 13th when Mars enters your unconscious sector, an influence that makes money disappear into the abyss if you’re not watching it. Opportunities to increase your cash flow are coming later in the spring so now’s the time to make sure you won’t need to spend that influx on clearing debt.
