Read what your sign’s 2021 horoscope predictions have in store for you or check out the Aries personality profile.
Welcome to February, Aries! Last month, you strapped yourself in as the first Mercury retrograde of the year began. We’re not out of it yet, so continue double-checking that you’re sexting the right person before pressing “send” and make sure to read the fine print of any contracts you may be signing, but don’t stress yourself out too much, if possible. On Monday, February 1, the planet of romance, Venus, enters logical Aquarius. This transit brings a sensibility to your love life that helps counteract some of the more frustrating effects of Mercury’s apparent backward walk through the sky. Life may still feel a little bit wonky, but don’t fret too much about this retrograde’s impact on your love life.
There’s a dark new moon, which represents fresh starts, on Thursday, February 11 in Aquarius and your 11th House of Friendships. Due to the pandemic, the way we connect with our friends has changed. Perhaps you used to see your best friend at least once a week, and now, it may have been months since you’ve gotten together in person. However, despite the necessary physical separation, some friendships may also have been reinvigorated. The normalization of virtual hang-outs has caused people to reach out to friends they may not have talked to in years. This is a wonderful thing; while doing your part and staying home to follow COVID-19 guidelines, you also need to connect with others to stimulate your mind and remind yourself that you’re loved. Use this new moon to set intentions around what you want out of your friendships in 2021.
The big astrology news of 2021 is strict Saturn squaring eccentric Uranus. These planets square three times this year and the first square happens on Wednesday, February 17. Politically speaking, this transit represents a clash between conservative and progressive thinking, which will affect society as a whole. For you, Aries, Saturn is in Aquarius, your 11th House of Friendship, and Uranus is in Taurus, your 2nd House of Possessions. When we speak about our friends, we’re also talking about our larger community, which includes neighbors, coworkers, and anyone else you interact with on a regular basis. During this time, that community may be having conversations about immigration or climate change. This squaring is a good time to read up on these types of issues — as the first sign of the zodiac, you’re eager to keep up with the changing world.
Pisces season begins on Thursday, February 18, lighting up your 12th House of the Unconscious. Pisces are already known for their psychic abilities, creativity, and at times, for their love for being lazy. This is an ideal time to begin a meditation practice, Aries, and to take time away from screens to make sense of your thoughts. Try not to think of meditation as “doing nothing;” it’s crucial to invest in your emotional and spiritual well-being.
Mercury retrograde ends on Saturday, February 20, helping everyone relax a bit. Pay attention to your dreams and other psychic messages as lover planet Venus also enters Pisces on Thursday, February 25. If you’ve felt stuck romantically, or unsure of what you want, let alone how to find it during COVID, turn inward. You know more than you give yourself credit for. Consider working with tarot cards to help decipher psychic downloads that come your way.
