February 2020

Welcome to Aquarius season, dear Gemini!

Welcome to Aquarius season, Gemini! The sun is shining in an adventurous sector of your chart, inspiring you to travel and take on exciting new studies. You’re feeling energized at school and may even be working on getting something published—and as it happens, Aquarius season is a brilliant time for you to get your work out into the world. Love and money planet Venus is currently in Pisces, bringing you blessings in your career—people are finding you especially glamorous, and rewards and recognition are coming your way! This is especially the case when Venus connects with power planet Pluto in Capricorn on February 2, which finds you gaining access to some hard-to-get resources. Someone may write out quite a big check in your name—just make sure you understand what strings may be attached!

Your ruling planet Mercury enters dreamy Pisces on February 3, finding you feeling rather poetic. Mercury is usually all about facts and details, but in Pisces, Mercury cares about fantasy, feeling, and intuition. This is a great time for you to connect with the public because you’re really understanding what your fans are craving from you. Just keep in mind that a Mercury retrograde is coming up this month, so many of the plans and conversations that you have will be reworked, renegotiated, and possibly delayed. But before the retrograde, Venus also connects with taskmaster Saturn in Capricorn on February 3, making this a great day to discuss plans for the future and possibly set some things in stone. If you’re looking for someone who will invest time, money, or energy into you, now is the time to brainstorm what your terms will be.

Your intuition is especially sharp and you’re brewing up innovative ways to reach out to the public and conduct your work as Mercury connects with electric Uranus in Taurus on February 5. This is a fantastic time to take a risk. Should things not go as planned, you could actually use the upcoming retrograde to your advantage to try again! Two days later, you’re making a big impression in your social circle as Venus enters fire sign Aries on February 7. Venus in Aries is a great time to introduce yourself to new people and connect with groups or organizations you’re excited to join—you’re going to see an uptick in your popularity! In your romantic relationships, this is an excellent time to reconnect on an intellectual level. At work, you may find that payoffs for your achievements continue to roll in.

The full moon in Leo lands on February 9, bringing a conversation that’s been brewing to a climax. Full moons are high in energy, and Leo is all about drama; expect this to be a passionate evening, especially compared to how people love to play it cool during chill Aquarius season. And because Leo rules the heart, share what’s been on yours—especially since full moons are all about release.

In a similar vein, the moon is in sexy Scorpio, a water sign that loves to share a secret, on Valentine’s Day. Perhaps use the full moon’s energy to reveal something powerful to someone you care about. Even if the answer you receive isn’t what you want, it will be valuable to have that information. And Gemini, believe this: You can handle any heartbreak! Love will find its way to you, if you want it. This Valentine’s Day will find you and your partners learning more about one another's routines and habits, too.

On February 16, Mercury retrograde begins and action planet Mars enters Capricorn. Mercury brings you delays and miscommunications while Mars ushers you to cut ties and handle debts. Because of this combination, there are a few things you’d be wise to do: First, avoid starting new projects. If you must work on something, pick up a project that was previously on the back burner. Second, archive social media posts that show you with an ex—you don’t need the world to see you two sharing a birthday cake in outdated clothing! Third, avoid making important purchases or announcements, traveling, or signing contracts. Instead, take stock of your debts, taxes, inheritances, and any other issues concerning shared financial resources. Fortunately, Mars in business-savvy Capricorn will help you sort all that out, despite Mercury’s backward motion.

  • If you feel a little lost when it comes to managing your finances, take advantage of online courses that can give you a solid understanding of what you need to know.
  • Aside from archiving old photos, a short break from social media could also be good for your mental health. Charge your devices and leave them untouched for a morning or evening.
  • Throughout this retrograde, don’t forget to take time to focus on self-care. This deck of cards is filled with prompts that can help you make that a daily priority.

Pisces season begins on February 18, finding the sun illuminating the sector of your chart that rules your career and reputation—the same sector Mercury retrograde is rolling through! You’re reflecting on what you want your legacy to be, and a powerful day to attract the attention you’re looking for arrives as lucky Jupiter in Capricorn connects with Neptune in Pisces on February 20. This may also find you receiving assistance beyond what you thought was possible: Dreams are coming true, so make big requests! Just be sure you understand what strings are attached, similarly to how you did earlier this month.

Warrior planet Mars connects with rebel Uranus on February 21, followed by the sun connecting with Uranus on February 22, helping you find an unexpected way to smooth something awkward over or cut yourself loose from it altogether! The new moon in Pisces arrives on February 23, marking the beginning of a fresh start in your career—but you might feel insecure because you aren’t sure what the future holds. Remember: Mercury is retrograde and things are being reworked. Now is the time to imagine, rather than know, the future! The more creative your imagination can be, the better. Also during this new moon, Venus squares off with Jupiter, drawing plenty of attention your way and perhaps even finding you being lavished with many gifts. The mood is over-the-top and generous!

  • This necklace has a subtle message about living in the present.
  • If you’re still fretting about the future, write out your worries in a letter to your future self. You’ll likely be surprised when you reread them later down the line.
  • Burn some incense in your living space to help clear negative energy that you’d like to leave in the past.

The sun connects with Mars on February 24 and meets Mercury retrograde on February 25, bringing you a boost in confidence and a key insight concerning your career and life in public. Mercury retrograde connects with Mars on February 26, helping things speed up, but not necessarily clear up. You still may find that things need to be reworked in the future. A quick fix may come on this day, but its permanence is not guaranteed.

Venus squares off with Pluto and Mercury retrograde connects with Uranus on February 28, finding you thinking back to February 5. A breakthrough idea comes to fruition and unexpected meetings take place. You may need to be mindful about shady or jealous people or groups, however. If you’re not feeling comfortable with the crew of people you’ve been spending time with—perhaps you don’t share the same values, or maybe they expect you to participate in an unfair exchange—now is the time to trust that instinct. If someone offers you something at this time, ask what the cost is. While some people are altruistic when it comes to offering favors, many are not.This month, you need to be smart about these exchanges. Good luck this month, Gemini, and see you in March!
