The first few days of February are quiet, astrologically speaking. However, interpersonal tension will be building as Venus squares Mars on February 4th, ahead of a highly creative and flamboyant Leo Full Moon on the 5th.
These energies make the first week of the month helpful for romance and grand gestures of all kinds, but tempers will not be far from the surface.
Mercury moves into progressive Aquarius on February 11th, ushering in a short period of off-the-wall, blue sky thinking in all areas of life. No longer restrained by the discipline of Mercury in Capricorn, mid-month is a great time for innovation and experimentation.
Mid-February is also traditionally a time for love, but this year the romance comes a day late for Valentine’s Day - on February 15th, Venus conjuncts Neptune in a beautiful display of dreamy, romantic energy. This vibe is also very spiritual and deeply compassionate, so many of us will feel easily moved and much more inclined to help others.
Pisces Season begins on February 18th when the Sun moves into this emotional, poetic, watery sign. A couple of days later, on the 20th, the Pisces New Moon is a wonderful time for spiritual development, personal creativity, intuition, and instinct.
Use this lunar energy for anything where logic has let you down - let your senses and gut feelings take over instead.
Also on February 20th, Venus changes signs, moving out of sensitive Pisces into warrior sign Aries. This is a real change of pace for relationships - much more ardent, much more passionate, but also much more argumentative!
March looks set to be the most significant astrological month this year - and indeed, this decade.
On March 23rd, Pluto will move into Aquarius for the first time since 1798, ushering in the Age of Aquarius and a huge long-term era shift for the world. Although Pluto only stays here until June 11th for now, it’s a brief taste of what will truly unfurl when Pluto arrives back in Aquarius next year, where it will stay until 2043.
Before that, however, we have several other significant planetary events this month.
March begins on a gentle, whimsical note with Mercury’s arrival in fairy tale Pisces. This ethereal, spiritual vibe increases dramatically when Saturn moves into Pisces on March 7th. This is a wake-up call that we must take our spirituality more seriously.
Less than an hour before Saturn changes signs on March 7th, a healing Full Moon in Virgo urges us to learn from the pain of the last few years, so this is a very uplifting, even bittersweet period of the month.
On March 16th, Venus arrives in Taurus, encouraging kindness as an undertone for all interpersonal relationships.
A few days later, Aries season begins in earnest when first of all, Mercury makes the move into Aries on March 19th. The following day, at the Equinox, the Sun follows suit, marking the start of a new astrological year. One day later, the Aries New Moon brings a burst of determination and can-do energy for us all.
Then comes the Pluto shift on March 23rd, sowing the very first seeds of universal rebellion. For now, however, the immediate focus shifts to the home and family, when Mars moves into Cancer on March 25th.
April gets off to a thoughtful start with Mercury moving from superfast Aries into much more cautious Taurus on April 3rd. This makes the early part of April a good time for careful, considered decision-making, guided by common sense and grounded logic.
The Full Moon on April 6th is in air sign Libra. This is another rational influence, cooling some of the heady emotions often associated with a Full Moon. However, Libra influences are always tinged with love and romance, so this lunation is helpful for anyone who needs to make an important decision in a relationship.
When Venus changes signs on April 11th and heads into Gemini, we’ll have yet more air-element influence on love - but Venus’ transit through Gemini is notoriously flirtatious, so there could be some jealousy during mid-April, too.
However, the cool, airy, and somewhat detached vibe is set to change dramatically on April 20th, when we see the first in a new series of Eclipses, on the Aries-Libra axis. This Solar Eclipse occurs in the very last degree of Aries, so is likely to carry powerful impulses and a great deal of hot-headedness.
The last time a similar Eclipse occurred this late in Aries was in April 2004, so looking back to that time period may give you some clues as to what to expect.
Just a few hours after the Solar Eclipse on April 20th, the Sun moves into Taurus, ushering in a period of kind, loving, sensual energy.
However, a day later on the 21st, Mercury turns retrograde in Taurus. During this retrograde, we can expect to find our loyalties tested - and you may also find that you need to rethink your routines, habits, and day-to-day life patterns.
As February gets underway, you may not find it easy to express your feelings. Your ruler, Mars, squares up to Venus on February 4th, making it difficult for you to let someone know how you feel.
Fortunately, the Full Moon the very next day lights up your joy zone - this is the time to make grand gestures of love. If it’s not love on your mind, this lunar influence also fills you with confidence and inspires you to tackle difficult conversations too. With a charismatic turn of phrase, you’ll know just what to say and how to say it.
When Mercury changes signs on February 11th, you’ll feel in a more sociable mood, so this part of the month is ideal for joining a new club or seeking out like-minded souls who share your interests and your hobbies.
Venus’ conjunction with Neptune on February 15th is intensely spiritual for you. If you’re in a relationship, this would be a very good time to investigate the karmic links that brought you together, ahead of the Sun moving into the most spiritual zone of your natal birth chart on February 18th.
The New Moon in this zone of your chart on February 20th may create some insightful dreams or even psychic experiences. Be open-minded and explore the signs and symbols that emerge from your subconscious.
A more tangible - and very passionate - influence also takes hold on February 20th, when Venus moves into Aries. This is the perfect Venus transit for dating, as it helps you to come across as your authentic self.
Where friendship and money are linked, February gets off to a slightly tricky start. Your ruler Venus squares up to Mars on the 4th, creating tension if money has been borrowed or lent.
The following day, the Full Moon illuminates the very bottom of your chart, casting a vibrant glow over your family relationships. It’s a time for happiness and forgiveness, but you may also find it fascinating to dig into your past around this lunation.
It’s the top of your chart that matters on February 11th, however, when Mercury powers up your career and helps you to make intelligent choices in business or at work. Don’t be afraid to show your ambition or highlight your ideas - people are listening.
If you’re single, February 15th could promise a late Valentine’s surprise when your ruler Venus conjuncts Neptune. This is an annual display of intense fairytale romance - but this year, for you, it suggests that a friendship could become something much more.
Friendship is a key theme for the rest of the month too, especially when the Sun moves into the social zone of your natal birth chart on February 18th. The New Moon here two days later is the perfect time to join a new group or seek out new friends.
This New Moon also speaks to your long-term objectives, however. Use its energy to seed a new wish for your future!
Meanwhile, Venus is also on the move on February 20th, heading into the most spiritual zone of your chart. While your ruling planet is here, it inspires your dreams and stirs up the more mystical, ethereal elements of your creativity. Psychic art would be a perfect outlet for this vibe!
February for you is a month in which information is power. To begin with, you may find yourself feeling indignant or put out at work if something isn’t shared with you. The Venus-Mars square on February 4th suggests tempers will rise here.
The following day, the Full Moon reveals something that was previously hidden. This could be juicy information that’s to your benefit - or it could be that you over-share on social media. Whatever it is, the information has consequences.
Then on February 11th, Mercury, your ruler, moves into the education zone of your natal birth chart. Expect to feel the urge to study, upskill in some way, or broaden your horizons. Again, accumulating information and knowledge is what matters to you at this time.
When Venus conjuncts Neptune on February 15th at the very top of your chart, there’s confusion in your career again, especially if someone is hiding something from you. Have patience until February 18th, when the Sun moves to the top of your chart and will shed much-needed light on what’s going on.
Two days later on the 20th, an ambitious New Moon in this area of your chart will help you set fresh goals. Don’t be surprised if you change direction or decide to retrain; it’s never too late for a fresh start, and this New Moon urges you to follow your instincts.
Also on the 20th, Venus changes signs, moving out of your ambitions zone and into the most sociable area of your chart. If you’re single, late February could see a friendship turn to love - or, the more new people you meet, the more likely that someone special could appear in your life.
Early February is a very good time for getting to grips with your financial situation. Increasingly, your emotions are bound up with how much money you do or don’t have, and that’s not good for your mental health. The Full Moon on February 5th will help you to release some of this angst - and it should also see an end to at least one financial worry.
When Mercury changes signs on February 11th, you’ll start to become more aware of your own inner resources and abilities. You’ve always been much more capable than you realize, but under this empowering influence, you will be able to trust yourself more - and push yourself further.
There’s a beautiful link between travel and love on February 15th, when Venus conjuncts Neptune - the perfect moment for a late Valentine’s Day getaway!
In fact, travel - or at the very least a thirst for new experiences - is a key trend for you from mid-February onwards. When the Sun changes signs on February 18th you’ll want to try new things, visit new places and see more of what life has to offer.
A very optimistic New Moon two days later on the 20th would be the ideal time to push yourself right out of your comfort zone. Dare to do something you’ve never dreamed before, and enjoy the adrenaline rush!

You may start February feeling a little unsure of yourself. A complex square between Venus and Mars on February 4th leaves you wondering where you stand with other people, which can be unsettling.
Fortunately, on February 5th, the Leo Full Moon restores every inch of your confidence - and then some! This is you at your most flamboyant and charismatic, so you can use this Full Moon to get almost anything you want!
There’s more good news on February 11th when Mercury moves into your opposite sign. Traditionally a very good omen for romance, this blends your head and your heart so that you can make the right choices for your relationship. It also means that communication between you and your partner is better than ever, so it will ease any difficult conversations you need to have.

February begins with some notable tension in your closest relationship, especially if you or your partner work long hours. The Venus-Mars square on February 4th is a particular flashpoint; to avoid unnecessary discord, be willing to compromise where possible.

From March 19th, when Mercury changes signs, the focus is on working smarter, not harder. The Sun follows Mercury on the 20th at the March Equinox, and then a New Moon on the 21st helps you to set positive goals for new habits and new ways of organizing your time.
However, don’t be surprised if you feel something in the air on March 23rd. For the first time in your life, Pluto sinks to the very bottom of your chart, where it will spend the next 20 years creating transformation in your roots, your sense of identity, and your family life. This is a very long-term influence, but you may instinctively sense that things are changing.

This period of March is a great time to focus on your hobbies, your love life, and everything else that makes you smile.
On March 23rd, Pluto changes signs for the first time in 15 years, leaving the money zone of your chart in a move that should bring financial relief. However, for the next 20 years, Pluto will be challenging you to change your mindset through some exceptionally deep thinking and questioning.

You seem to be under some intellectual pressure early this March. It begins with Mercury moving into your mind zone on March 2nd but intensifies dramatically when Saturn arrives here, too, on March 7th. You have plenty of great ideas, but you are being challenged to make them work.
