This month also sees the USA Pluto return, on February 20th and throughout 2022, marking the end of an era. Perhaps even the end of an empire… These are, indeed, historical times we live in.
Aquarius New Moon February 1st: Prepare for Take Off!
February starts with a rocket-fuelling New Moon in Aquarius at 05:46 on the 1st conjunct Saturn and square Uranus. This strikes a chord with the Saturn-Uranus square and the ongoing debate around restriction versus freedom that’s rocked the world. Decide where you stand.
With Mercury still retrograde, , we’re still in a process of deep review as February enters, re-examining matters practically and rationally, both from political and scientific perspectives, to make a decision.
Time to make a tentative fresh start - based on new, still incoming data - ready for take off. Get into position in the runway of 2022.
With Chiron also chiming in, this is a good time to revisit matters of health and healing, as well as any hurts that still plague your thoughts.
The Sabian Symbol for this Aquarius New Moon (at 12:19 degrees) is “A Barometer”. What a fantastic image for taking the pulse of a situation and gauging what’s needed to make better future decisions.
Mercury Direct February 4th
Mercury retrograde in Capricorn finally stations direct on February 4th and all sorts of information rises up like jewels from the deep! Time to experiment with new ideas.
Expect a quickening of energies as February kicks off - a packed, exciting and liberating start to the month.
February 4th also sees this year's Sun-Saturn conjunction - the biggest annual reality check! This helps you organise the coming year around new objectives and priorities. Get back to basics, keep it real and move forward cooly and rationally.
Mars sextile Jupiter also on the 4th brings a touch of luck and good timing. This gives you the energy, faith and initiative to take a leap. Mars continues to remain active, square Chiron and trine Uranus, till the waxing quarter Moon in Taurus on February 8th.
February 4th-8th is a moment of action, freeing you up to pursue ambitious initiatives!
Eclipse Half-Way Point February 15th: A Crossroads...
Get ready for the most fantastic acceleration of energies as we head to Valentine’s Day! We have a Leo Full Moon opposite the Sun in Aquarius and square the Lunar Nodes, marking the half-way point between the eclipses. This is a moment that pins your position to the ground.
Come the 15th, you have some important decisions to make.
These are Terry Pratchett’s trousers of time… Which way will you go? Will you blindly repeat the past? Or will you brave the unknown?
Expect powerful words and revelations as soon as February 11th and all the way to the 15th as Mercury and Pluto meet for the final time this winter. The Lunar Nodes in Scorpio and Taurus are right there helping Mercury and Pluto share all sorts of secrets that are now coming to light. February 11th-15th opens a portal for deep truths to be revealed, for informational downloads that could radically transform the way you think, communicate and approach the world. Power is flowing.
Mercury-Pluto February 11th-15th gives you incredible powers of concentration and single minded focus.
Mid-February could bring transformative ideas, meetings and communications your way.
Leo Full Moon & Mars-Venus: February 16th
And so we come to the dramatic Full Moon in Leo, February 16th at 4:56pm at 27-59 degrees. And if Leo isn’t grand enough, this month’s Full Moon coincides with a passionate Mars-Venus conjunction in Capricorn. Time for a seriously bold move!
Here we have a strategic moment of great courage. Release the shackles that imprison your heart!
Leo rules the heart - and it rules the strength to follow it. Now you can clearly see what the heart wants and put your full force behind it. Let Mars and Venus energise every fibre of your being. Fight for what you really want. No use wasting your energies. Mars is in exaltation in Capricorn and nothing can stop this great warrior from playing the long game - especially with Venus fanning the flames.
Mid-February might get a little too hot to handle.
The Sabian Symbol for this Leo Full Moon is “many little birds on a limb of a large tree.” A large, perhaps overwhelming array of inspiring possibilities may come your way.
Your choice matters! Take a moment to check in with that grey matter that sits in your chest cavity…
Follow your heart and make your choice.
Uranus-Jupiter, February 17th-18th: Good Luck!
Mid-February brings one of the luckiest few days of 2022: If you have a bold, risky, crazy gamble you want to take, now’s the time!
We're talking about February 17th-18th when Jupiter and Uranus sextile. The vibe lasts from February 13th to the 22nd with the 17th-18th marking the peak. Here we have an opportunity for freedom, for truth, for windfalls even, and for breaking old patterns. It's a chance to score some wins!

The world is opening up like an oyster mid-February. Be ready.
Take a leap of faith!

February 2022 Horoscope
As usual, here is a taster of how the month’s astro-whether triangulates with each star sign… Check out your Sun sign (Object), Rising Sign (Verb), and your Moon sign (Subject) if you fancy it. Of course, these are but a few possibilities out of any infinite number. But you get the gist…

It’s time to examine your circles, clubs or community, reach out to your peers and make friendships that can turn your dreams into reality. Career matters are highly strung, revealing much about your style of leadership and management, as well as parental figures in your life. Buried thoughts and feelings are coming to the surface, as you’re called to exercise your power and authority on those below and understand the importance of your position. The Full Moon illuminates your children or any creative endeavours, showing you what your heart really wants. All the better to help you commit to your dreams and those who support them. You’ve not got the passion and energy to reach for your goals from the 4th.

Allow yourself to contemplate, reviewing beliefs that led to past choices and uncovering blind spots in your outlook that might limit your options.
