Welcome to February, Virgo. You are the healer of the Zodiac, and last month, you tried to reach a place of balance; while you tend to worry about the safety of others, unfortunately, you know that you can only control yourself. As unfair as it may seem, there will be people who do not act cautiously during the pandemic. Try not to fret so much over the health of others that it negatively affects your own.
When Venus, the planet of love, enters Aquarius and your 6th House of Health on Monday, February 1, you begin to focus on that which you can change. Are you in any unhealthy relationships? Sometimes, Virgo, you can be more preoccupied with giving others advice than checking in on yourself. Use the new moon in Aquarius, which represents fresh starts, on Thursday, February 11 to take note of any patterns that may not serve you any longer. This could mean letting go of a relationship with someone who doesn’t treat you well, or looking into something like attachment styles to see if it’s a theory that might help explain why you keep gravitating toward similar relationship patterns. Seek out the guidance of a therapist for additional support if that appeals and is available to you.
The biggest astrological event of 2021 is the meeting of innovative Uranus, which is in steady Taurus, and strict Saturn, which is in eccentric Aquarius. These planets square three times this year, and the first goes down on Wednesday, February 17. On a national level, this clash represents the power struggle between conservative and progressive politics. For you, dear Virgo, this means your 9th House of Philosophy will come face to face with your 6th House of Health. Are you practicing what you preach? Your theme for February is to make sure you’re giving your emotional, mental, and physical health the same attention that you’d give to a loved one’s.
When empathic Pisces season begins on Thursday, February 18, you may need to put extra effort into communicating your personal boundaries. If you don’t, you risk taking on the pain of the others and not having enough space for yourself. You can’t help those you love if you aren’t in good emotional health yourself, Virgo. Your stress levels will lower when your ruling planet, messenger Mercury, ends its retrograde and goes direct on Saturday, February 20.
