Welcome to February, Taurus! When Aquarius season began last month, the sign’s detached energy helped you take a break from worrying about the world crumbling and squeeze in some time for self-care. On Monday, February 1, Venus, your ruling planet, also enters Aquarius, helping you step back and view your love life from an outsider’s perspective. What do you need? Are you happy with your current situation? Sometimes, we must put aside our emotions to view a situation clearly.
During the dark new moon in Aquarius and your 10th House of Social Status on Thursday, February 11, your mind turns to your professional life. Most of us have been financially affected by COVID-19 in some way, and it’s a tough time to manifest goals. You may feel stuck and unsure of what your next step is. New moons represent new beginnings, so use this night to meditate, work with tarot, or journal to figure out how you might navigate your work situation to best fit your needs.
The most significant astrological event of the year is the clashing of innovative Uranus, which is in your sign, and strict Saturn, which is in eccentric Aquarius. These planets square off three times in 2021, and the first happens on Wednesday, February 17. Broadly speaking, these transits signify power struggles between conservative and progressive ideology, which is easy to identify in the clashes taking place politically. For you, sweet Taurus, this transit takes place in your 1st House of Self and your 10th House of Social Status. Circling back to your new moon meditations, your theme for this month is to reflect on how your professional circle and community make you feel. If you feel undervalued or out of place, perhaps it’s time to check out opportunities that better align with your ideals.
Psychic Pisces season begins on Thursday, February 18. Keep a journal by your bed to jot down dreams when you first wake up, as important messages may come to you. It’s also the perfect time to begin a meditation practice if you don’t have one already. Mercury has been retrograde since the end of January, but because it’s been in logical Aquarius, this one hasn’t been as harsh as other Mercury retrogrades. Nevertheless, you still may have felt a bit stressed, or made a few too many typos in work emails or texts. The planet goes direct on Saturday, February 20, allowing you to breathe a bit easier.
Your ruling planet, lover Venus, enters Pisces and your 11th House of Friends on Thursday, February 25. Could this mean that you’re falling for someone in your friend circle? Or maybe you’re just deepening your friendships? Either way, you have hearts in your eyes. You might also meet new people along the way who will be important additions to your community.
