Last month may have been a roller coaster ride thanks to the effects of two game-changing eclipses. Luckily, this month we get the chance to catch our breath and let the dust settle a bit. February opens with love planet Venus entering grounded and practical Capricorn on February 3rd, bringing the focus to commitment, dedication, and integrity when it comes to relationships and financial matters.
Since Capricorn is an earth sign, Venus in Capricorn will also be pushing us to establish a healthier relationship with ourselves, especially when it comes to our physical well-being. With active Mars entering sensual and equally grounded Taurus on February 14th, followed by the Full Moon in health-conscious Virgo on the 19th, the emphasis on our physical health will be hard to ignore.
As a rule, eclipses can be rough on the body by ramping up stress levels. The earthy energy coming our way can help us get the care and calming energy that we need.
Meanwhile, the New Moon in Aquarius on February 4th, coupled with the start of Pisces season on February 18th, encourages us to make smarter and more fulfilling choices when it comes to our connections to others, while looking to ways that we can help make the world better for others too–specifically those who may be vulnerable or marginalized. Having communicative Mercury entering soulful Pisces on February 10th means that we’ll be looking to have more meaningful conversations and connections as well.
Between the New Moon in Aquarius, Venus in Capricorn, and planets in Pisces, we’re reminded that healthy, supportive, and emotionally uplifting relationships can also be the anchor that we need right now.
