Welcome to February, Pisces. Your season approaches. Last month, when Mercury went retrograde, you had to remember to text friends back (and let’s be real, this is always a struggle of yours). When lover planet Venus enters Aquarius and your 12th House of the Unconscious on Monday, February 1, some lessons from past mistakes may reveal themselves to you. You don’t want to ignore red flags anymore or willfully engage in toxic relationships, and now, you’re learning how to avoid doing these things before you’re in too deep. By the new moon in Aquarius on Thursday, February 11, you’ll have the resolve you need to approach dating from a healthier place.
Perhaps the most important astrological event of the year is the clashing of progressive Uranus, which is in reliable Taurus, and strict Saturn, which is in eccentric Aquarius. These planets square off three times in 2021, and the first goes down on Wednesday, February 17. Politically, we see this play out as liberal politics go up against conservative ideology. For you, sweet Pisces fish, this faces off your 3rd House of Communication and 12th House of the Unconscious. You’re making strides in understanding your great emotional needs and how deep they run, but are you communicating this to others? If not, there’s never been a better time to try virtual therapy, so consider working with a professional to help you relay your feelings to people around you.
Break out the champagne or your favorite sweets, because your season officially begins on Thursday, February 18, Pisces! You are such an empathetic sign that you feel all the pains of the world, and there is more than enough to go around right now. Make sure to set up boundaries, both with your loved ones and by taking breaks from social media.
Communicating your needs to others becomes easier when Mercury ends its retrograde on Saturday, February 20. Then, when Venus leaves Aquarius and enters your sign and your 1st House of Self on Thursday, February 25, you feel something akin to stepping into yourself. You may have a tendency to shove down your desires in favor of pleasing others, Pisces. Now, you’re feeling a growing confidence in who you are, and you’re getting ready to show up for yourself more in romantic relationships. Start swiping, express yourself, and try to have an orgasm during the full moon in Virgo on Saturday, February 27. See you next month, Pisces!

We know many of you may be feeling worried, frightened, or isolated right now. Although the stars don’t have answers to the multitude of questions running through all of our minds, astrology may at least provide some comfort during times of uncertainty. We urge you to donate to one or all of these organizations if you’re able to. If you can’t, we created a guide to ways you can support the BLM movement other than financially.
