If January felt ridiculously slow and long with Mercury and Venus in retrograde, February brings us the quicker pace and versatility we need to start 2022 off right. February kicks off in rebellious, future-oriented Aquarius season, the sign of the water-bearer, the inventive activist who encourages us to focus on our mission for the planet at large. We are looking to our friendships and examining our global community for a revitalised sense of purpose and belonging.  A New Moon in Aquarius on the 1st encourages us to set intentions for the future, and embrace friendship and interdependence. 

Messenger planet Mercury ends its retrograde in the sign of Capricorn on the 3rd. Here, we can pair the revolutionary innovative attitude of Aquarius with some grounded action. We are focused on new experiences, community, and individuality, as we leave behind the cynical, work-oriented attitude of Capricorn. Both Mars and Venus stay stationed in Capricorn for February, making sure we keep the commitments in our everyday lives, and hold the boundaries we were asked to implement over Venus retrograde. 

Mercury joins the Sun in Aquarius on the 14th, broadening our perspectives, and helping us see things from all sides. Here, our hopes, dreams, and wishes for the future occupy our minds. We enter a cerebral headspace, looking to connect virtually and physically with inclusive communities. 

A Full Moon in Leo on the 16th beckons us to spruce up our sense of confidence and express our uniqueness, loud and proud. Pisces season starts on the 18th, infusing our spirits with a creative, dreamlike atmosphere. Pisces, the final sign of the zodiac, enhances our connection to our sense of spirituality, imagination and intuition. We go from over-thinking, to over-feeling, and our sense of empathy is enhanced. Anticipate the occasional emotional overwhelm, and try to focus your attention on restoring your energy.
