Welcome to February, dear readers. This month kicks off on Monday, February 1, when lover planet Venus enters logical Aquarius.

The most significant astrological event of 2021 is the clashing of innovative Uranus, which is in reliable Taurus, and strict Saturn, which is in eccentric Aquarius. These planets square, which is a challenging astrological aspect, three times this year. The first time is on Wednesday, February 17. This transit can be best described as the face-off between progressive politics and conservative ways of thinking, which we will all be witnessing on a national level. Read your sign’s horoscope to see how it will affect you personally.
Pisces season, a sign known to be a bit psychic, begins the next day, on Thursday, February 18. This sign is also dreamy, empathetic, and can be lazy at times. If you feel as though it would be helpful, try to start a regular meditation practice or a dream journal to help yourself notice the subconscious messages that may be coming your way. Practice extra self-care when the weight of the world feels too much, and get some rest whenever possible.
The first Mercury retrograde of the year ends on Saturday, February 20. Communication will become easier and hopefully, exes will scatter back to wherever they came from. Romance planet Venus leaves Aquarius and enters intuitive Pisces on Thursday, February 25, helping you get in touch with your gut. What do you want from your dating life? What do you need from a partner? Use the full moon in fastidious Virgo on Saturday, February 27 to act in accordance with your heart. (A bubble bath and an orgasm or two can’t hurt either.)
