Astrology Forecast: February 2021: Adaptability + Self-Study

Saturn and Uranus, the planets that rule Aquarius, are squaring off this month for one of the most notable astrological signature events of the year.  What are the planets reflecting to us under Mercury retrograde Skies in February?


7-Universal Month in a 5-Universal Year: Self-Study

The energy is ripe for soul-searching and spiritual connection. It’s possible you are feeling antisocial or detaching a bit in order to continue a personal quest. It is time for reflection, introspection, and truth-seeking.  The puzzle pieces come together when you create daily routines that fill your cup.

This Week: February 1-5, 2021 – Lost at Sea with plenty of Fuel 

Sun square Mars: Irritable, restless, discontent. Pack your patience – impulsivity due to extra energy now, can create problems for you later. Find a healthy physical outlet to process anger, loss of control, and tempers. Avoid weapons, explosives, and dangerous situations. Be alert – this energy can come on a little early.

 Venus enters Aquarius: The desires of the heart become more eccentric. Let your freak flag fly, connect with your inner-weirdo, and ignite your light while Venus is in Aquarius through February 25.

 Venus semisquare Neptune + sextile Chiron: Lost at Sea. Insecurities, distorted perceptions, and melancholy. Be extra cautious around drugs, sex, and rock and roll under this influence as poisons, infections, overdoses, and getting ripped off or lied to are more likely. If you’re feeling vulnerable, go with it. Pain is a messenger for change. Layers of the onion are peeling back and the tears are more likely to flow. If hurt feelings or painful patterns around self-worth and relationships are more in your face right now, it’s for the purpose of your awakening – so that you can have a new reaction, and shift into a new gear. 

LAST QUARTER MOON [16-SCORPIO]: February 4, 2021 (Thursday): Deep breath in, trust and hold, then exhale and let it go. This yin phase signifies receptivity and a willingness to trust, surrender, and let things take their course wherever 16-Scorpio is in your chart.

Love: Falling in love with someone’s unusual qualities (or their inner nerd) is the name of the game right now. Venus in Aquarius is a little freaky (wink!).  Venus conjunct Saturn can equal Heartbreak hotel. Watch out for loneliness, isolation, and detachment. Remember this: we all deserve more unconditional love, not less.

Money: Investing in space travel, launching new networks, and voting with your dollar. Remain flexible as issues with money are volatile right now (Venus square Uranus).  Surprise expenses tend to surface at the worst time. 

 Health: Purify, drink water, cleanse. This is not the time to experiment with new drugs or put yourself in harm’s way. Sun semisextile Neptune: You’re more sensitive during this phase which means higher empathy, tender emotions, and an ability to tune into the creative and mystical realms. This transit occurs twice: February 7, and April 11

 Crystals for your Desk: Fluorite (clarity + peace) 


Weekend Vibes Feb 6-7: Past Life Hangovers

Mercury semisquare Chiron: Flashbacks, deja vu, and memories have you analyzing things. Notice what feels out of sync in your mind/body. You may be interested in talking, discussing, or journaling in order to find greater alignment between the head and the heart. Chiron brings up pain points and suffering, but can also point you to areas where you like to nerd out. New perspectives are just what the doctor ordered. This transit occurs three times: January 21 (observe), February 7 (reconsider), March 9 (move forward with a new perspective).


This Week: February 8-12: Bookends of Time + Blasts from the Past

The good: Sun conjunct Mercury ℞: Success, quick wit, good news, bright ideas, and communication flow make Monday a positive time to send newsletters, refine your image, launch an ad. It’s also a notable week to be making memories, reminiscing, and weaving in and out of nostalgic states (Mercury ℞ semisextile Neptune + Saturn sextile Chiron).

The bad: Consider shared memories, learning from the past, and beginning new mentor relationships. You might be blocking yourself in some way, and it’s possible you just don’t have all the information you need right now (Sun semisquare Chiron). More will be revealed if you can wait it out. 

The ugly: Mercury ℞ square Mars: Think before you speak: is it true, is it necessary, is it kind? If frustrations arise – you can gain clarity and perspective by taking a healthy pause. Sticky business- allow room for error. Don’t make important calls or decisions today. Patience wins.

NEW MOON: February 11th in 23-Aquarius

  • Group alliances are changing – who do you want to network with?
  • What is your service work?
  • How can being open-minded help with new solutions?
  • Futuristic, Spacey, Artificial Intelligence

The astrology inspires us to resolve issues, find harmony, and be a team-player as retrograde Mercury visits with Venus. There is a win-win and an opportunity to contribute. If old flames or old feelings return in your love life – keep your heart curious and open to love.

This Week: February 15-19

Gong Crash! Saturn squares Uranus for the first of three times this year: Adapting to unexpected changes. Be like a leaf on a fast-moving stream – find acceptance and go with the flow to the best of your ability. What you resist persists. Stubborn moods and motives do not serve you well right now. Stay curious and open-minded. Three passes: February 17 (observe), June 13 (review), and December 24 (find completion).  As the Merlin Astrologer, Rick Levine puts it: “We go further into denial or we give our old shit up.”

Overcoming odds, getting yourself out of victim mode, and taking responsibility means you’re facing the world from a more empowered state while Mars squares Chiron this week – also a good omen for betting on the underdog.

Love: Watch out for zingers towards the end of the week as Venus squares Mars: Passions and tensions can result in volatility.

Money: Remain conservative.

Health: You never know what battles other people are working with. If you’re having a dark night of the ego experience: look at the houses in your birthchart where Taurus and Libra are. These houses give you a special insight as to what you’re personally working through. Knowing that this too shall pass can be the comforting elixir astrology provides. Venus semisquare Chiron repeats in May for healing.

The choice is yours: to become the lighthouse or the victim. This transit passes three times: January 3 (observe), February 22 (modify), October 30 (move forward).


This Week: February 22-26:  “The wound is the place where the light enters you.” – Rumi. 

Venus enters Pisces on the 25th bringing good news: Venus is exalted in Pisces, which simply means the constellation of Pisces is Venus’ favorite place to hang out. On the positive end, this cosmic configuration generates forgiveness, kindness, generosity, intuitive nudges, and grace. On the challenging end, we might see people-pleasing behaviors wax and wane as personal boundaries tend to be more blurry.

End of the week: Optimize your time by clearing your clutter, returning to a more minimalistic way of life, and being willing to do without certain creature comforts. Systematically let something go. It’s time for the change you’re seeking to begin with you (Sun semisextile Saturn).
