Welcome to February! Mercury is still retrograde, and we’re still here! Love planet Venus leaves diligent Capricorn for eccentric Aquarius on the 1st—joining the sun, Mercury retrograde, Jupiter and Saturn for a massive pileup in the water bearer’s sign. Watch out for intriguing strangers and keep your heart open to out-of-the-ordinary connections. We only live once, so why not test our boundaries? We reach a crossroads on the same day as the sun (our life force) squares off with Mars (our drive), forcing us to make a difficult or heartbreaking decision.
Things are then quiet on the cosmic front until the 6th when Venus meets up with steady Saturn while also squaring disruptive Uranus. Saturn wants us to follow the rules while Uranus wants us to go a different way. Together, these aspects have us considering the importance of our relationships and devising ways to keep them thriving in our new normal. Virtual connection isn’t going away so how can we make it work for us?
