It may be cold outside but the February 2022 horoscope reminds us that there are signs of life about to ‘spring’ into action – just not quite yet. The retrograde season is drawing to an end; Mercury will move forward again on February 4th and Venus has already turned direct and will be forming one of the most hotly anticipated partnerships in the astrological calendar – a transiting conjunction with Mars that lasts until April.
I’ll be writing a separate post on Venus conjunct Mars but it’s somehow appropriate that this pair get within kissing distance of an exact conjunction around February 14th. Will it be a romantic month? Well, the lovers are transiting through Capricorn right now and that’s not a notably romantic sign – and both Venus and Mars have more going for them than hearts and flowers, so we shall see…
The other transiting aspect to watch is the Jupiter Uranus sextile. This is a contact that can open the door to something coming ‘out of the blue’. So is this month going to be the month to expect the unexpected? All things are possible with Jupiter Uranus contacts, so it may be a good idea to get comfortable and prepare yourself for whatever is heading your way. The good thing is that, as it’s a sextile, you will have a choice about how you handle it!
February 2022 Horoscope: Aries
The February 2022 horoscope begins with the New Moon in Aquarius and you may feel you’re in the dark where your social life is concerned. If you’re feeling you need to take a fresh approach to your alliances and social concerns, now is the time to work out how to do that – especially as Mercury moves forwards soon after that. Saturn in this sector means it’s something you need to take seriously – especially if you’ve been avoiding an issue that needs to be resolved.
But hey! Enough of Saturn. What about Venus and Mars? For your Aries, they hook up in your career sector. Will you find true love at work? Some of you may – but Venus and Mars also signify things like ‘action’ and ‘values’. So, as far as work is concerned, you may be taking action to attract more money into your pay packet. You may feel the urge to find a new position that is more in line with your values. Whatever happens, it signals taking the initiative – and that’s what you may need to do this month.
Is that a surprise to you? It may be be – and a new opportunity may come your way this month to radically change your earnings. It may seem like something that’s happened in the nick of time – but it may also arise because you’ve had a radical re-think about your value system and how you use your personal resources. Sometimes new opportunities arise out of the changes we didn’t see coming. And they are often for the best.
February 2022 Horoscope: Taurus
The February 2022 horoscope for Taurus suggests a month of change – but it’s the kind of change you can usually handle. I’ll start with the surprises as I know you hate them. This month, however, you could spring a few surprises of your own. Uranus is putting you through a long period of radical change and this month, you have a chance to put that ‘new you’ into action. How is that going to happen?
You may take the lead in creating a new social group or organisation, or taking a lead role in one you’re already involved with. It’s your chance to make changes in the way things are run – and you may do so in a way that surprises people. Venus and Mars are coming together in your house of adventure and you may be ready to take action to improve the world – or your part of it anyway. It’s your chance to go from ‘stick in the mud’ Taurus to someone who rides their luck – in a good way. Show the world that you know how to get the most from life.
It’s an attitude that may pay dividends at home. The Full Moon mid-month shines on your domestic sector. It’s in playful Leo so this may be the time to get together with your nearest and dearest for a celebration. There’s a real generosity of spirit about mid-month, so if members of your family have been supportive to you, it may be time to thank them. Or they may be thanking you. However it comes about – warm feelings will sustain you during the next few weeks.
February 2022 Horoscope: Gemini
For you Gemini, The February 2022 horoscope opens with the New Moon in your house of social status. New Moons often mean new beginnings so, where your career or public image is concerned, there may be changes ahead – even if you don’t yet know what they are. However, all may be revealed this month as the changes that have been under the surface come to light and provide you with the opportunity to make radical changes – though how radical is up to you.
If you’ve been nervous about making some serious changes in your life, Venus and Mars are telling me that the time to do so is now. One reason for this is that you could be at the mercy of events. You may have to be assertive about getting what you want and use a real charm offensive if you want to be in the person in control rather than the other way around. One way of achieving this is to trust your judgement rather than relying on the mixed advice of others. ‘To yourself be true’ may be good advice this month.
With the Full Moon in fiery Leo, things may hit maximum temperature mid-month. Hold your nerve; Mercury moving forward will enable you to get your head around creative solutions to most things. Being able to see both sides of the argument may be something you are naturally good at, but the best option for you will be to get your head in a good place and take action to ensure those sleepless nights are a thing of the past.
February 2022 Horoscope: Cancer
Your February 2022 horoscope begins with the New Moon in Aquarius and it may make you feel that’s something needs to change in your relationships, so this would be a good time to address any concerns you have in that area. And this month, you could be in luck with that as Venus and Mars are also travelling through your relationship sector. Things may get romantic for some of you – but you need to think about a couple of things before you break out the wine and roses…
A transiting conjunction is fairly intense. You can’t ignore it so you’re going to need to work with the energies it represents. Use the Venus and Mars energy to initiate some improvements in your relationship. Mars likes action, so taking the lead in how you want the relationship to develop is something that you can do this month. And the best way to do that is to make it pleasurable – so whatever floats your boat… Just make sure your partner is in agreement, as this combination can also be tempestuous at times – even in Capricorn.
At the outset I mentioned there could be surprises in store this month – or at least a chance to do something out of the ordinary. A last minute weekend away with friends? The opportunity to develop your understanding of social issues? An invitation to join a new team? Your world may become a little larger this month – if you’re willing to accept the offer. The Full Moon shines on your resources this month so make sure you have something available to fund that little adventure.
February 2022 Horoscope: Leo
The New Moon is a great time for planting seeds of all kinds and this month a seed may be planted in your relationship sector. Whether you want to move things onto another level or simply work out what kinds of relationships best suit your needs, this is the time you’ll find a few things begin to fall into place. With Venus and Mars joining forces, is is going to be a romantic month too?
The answer to that may be “yes” – but there’s a sensible and practical cast to this transiting conjunction – and in your February 2022 horoscope, it’s a combination that’s found in the practical house of work. However, that’s no bad thing. Use the energies in this transit to make your relationships work. This is a project where you could take the lead and it should prove to be a pleasurable one too. Make your relationships fit in with your lifestyle – but make sure that it’s a two way street. Compromise may be needed.
One reason for this personal re-organisation may be related to your career or your status in this world. Both may be subject to surprise developments this month – and this may affect your relationships too. Sometimes unexpected outer events alter the course of our lives in some way – and there is no going back. If you have the opportunity to improve our career prospects, or make a change in your public status – this may be the positive move you’ve been waiting for. Seize the moment – and don’t look back.
February 2022 Horoscope: Virgo
The February 2022 horoscope opens with a New Moon in your work and lifestyle sector. This is a comfortable placement for Virgo – though a new Moon in Aquarius is always going to shake things up a little. In truth Virgo? That may be what you need. If you’re keen to look for a new challenge, Mercury turning direct suggests this may be the time to start planning ahead – and it may be a good idea to think out of the box and consider a few options that are just a little out of your comfort zone.
That won’t seem too daunting as Venus and Mars are transiting through the most creative part of your horoscope. It may be a romantic month for you – but it may be a really good time to start valuing your own need to assert your creative potentials. I’m not suggesting you write that novel (everyone has one in them so we’re told) but you may feel emboldened to start focusing on the things that give you the greatest pleasure and satisfaction. You’re a dutiful soul and such things can be easily overlooked.
So, where will this month’s surprises come from? If you and your partner have the opportunity to travel – then take it with both hands. The Jupiter-Uranus sextile opens doors – however it’s always up to you whether you walk through. I suspect, however, that the Full Moon in Leo will leave you in no doubt that you’re ready to take a break from your usual routine. You may have the chance to expand your relationships and it may give you a new outlook on life too.
February 2022 Horoscope: Libra
We are told that Libra is the most romantic of the zodiac signs, so you would expect a month with a Venus and Mars transit to be especially good for you. That may be so – but if it does so it will make your relationships grounded and realistic. That is often a good thing – and if you’re in a relationship and you want it to ‘take root’, then now could be the time. However, there is more to Venus and Mars than love – and as they are in your domestic sector, some of you may be rolling up your sleeves to give the house a fresh coat of paint.
That’s not to say your relationships won’t improve; Mercury goes direct in your house of fun just after the New Moon plants its seed in the same part of your life. This could help you to make new contacts and connections that could benefit you in the weeks and months to come – and if some of them are romantic? Well, that’s probably a bonus but Mercury is in ambitious Capricorn – so this may be the time to make sure your career connections are on solid ground.
Work opportunities are where the surprises may come at you this month. If you’ve been hoping for a little celestial assistance the February 2022 horoscope tells me that it could be coming your way. However, you will have to recognise it when you see it. You may have to make an important decision from which there is no turning back. It’s likely to involve a radical change in your life-work balance or a complete re-organisation of your daily routine. Whatever the upheaval may be, it’s likely to be worthwhile long term investment – so don’t be put off by the prospect of change.
February 2022 Horoscope: Scorpio
The February 2022 horoscope opens with the New Moon leaving your home life in a dark place. Fortunately, you’re a Scorpio and darkness comes easily to you – however what the universe is saying to you, is that you need to turn on the light. If there are things that need your attention in the home or within the family, now is the time to plant the seeds of change – and nurture them carefully as you don’t want to be confronted with a yard full of weeds in the months ahead.
It may be time for a few radical changes – and this month there is the potential for a surprise or two. The Jupiter-Uranus sextile falls across your partnership and pleasure sectors, so does that mean things may be a little unsettled? That’s always a possibility but the odds are that you’ll have the opportunity to have some unexpected fun together. If that opportunity comes your way – then don’t say no. It’s been a long, dark winter so it would be a shame to miss the chance to liven up your relationship – especially in a good way.
With Venus and Mars in your communications sector, it would be a good time to talk – especially about the status of your relationship. The Full Moon mid-month may bring a few things to a head, but that may be a good thing as communication between you should be good. There is the potential for things to get intense – but any disagreements will be easy to resolve as you’re both thinking – and speaking – from the same place. Mercury direct will also make it easier for you to get to the heart of the matter.
February 2022 Horoscope: Sagittarius
Sagittarius loves to say it as it is and with the New Moon and Mercury direct in your communications sector, this may be the month you do exactly that. The February 2022 horoscope suggests you are mentally active this month – and that’s because this may be an especially busy month for you. That sounds great as you hate to be idle – but how much are you likely to achieve? Your sights may be set on greater things this month.
So, your mind may be on higher things – but the trick is to work out how to make them real. With the Venus and Mars emphasis on Capricorn, that may be less of an issue this month. This happy pair may give you both the initiative and desire to go after whatever (or whoever) is currently most important to you. That may involve significant expenditure for some of you – and there’s nothing wrong in that if it brings you satisfaction. Just make sure you can afford it or that whatever or whoever it is, that they are worth it.
Your mutable nature means that you love a surprise – and that surprise may be work or health related. That sounds like it may not be so good – but don’t despair. If you find that your waistband is unusually tight then it may be a reminder that you need to pay more attention to your exercise routine (what routine?) over the next few weeks. The Full Moon is in your house of expansion mid-month so don’t be surprised if that takes on a literal meaning. You may get the opportunity to make some big improvements to your life from the ground up – don’t let it pass by.
February 2022 Horoscope: Capricorn
As the month begins, the New Moon reveals a space in your value system. Whether you need to work out what’s really important to you – or whether you need to work out what’s in your bank account – the February 2022 horoscope suggests that it’s time to start working on how to make some changes so that you have the resources you need to see you through the weeks and months ahead. Fortunately, Mercury turns direct early in the month too, so it won’t be too difficult to get your head around that particular issue.
Of all the signs in the Zodiac, the Venus and Mars conjunction is likely to affect you ‘up close and personal’. or you, this phase of that transit is going to make you feel empowered to really go for the things you want in this life. At the very least, it’s going to have the effect of making you get on with a few things you may have neglected of late. If you want to sharpen up your act or smarten up your appearance, now is the time to do so – but remember, those things are simply part of a bigger picture that involves you becoming much more confident about expressing who you are.
Finally – the surprise. As you will have noticed, this is the month where things may come at you out of the blue. For you Capricorn, surprise encounters, meetings or messages will bring unexpected pleasure into your life. You may be presented with the opportunity to express yourself more creatively or you may wake up one day with a bright idea or a desire to start doing something new and more fulfilling with your life. Run with it. You know you have common-sense and hard work on your side. If anyone can do it, you can,
February 2022 Horoscope: Aquarius
The February 2022 horoscope represents a personal New Moon for Aquarius. For many of you this may feel like the real start to your year as you feel you’re now able to start making plans that had previously seemed difficult to even think about. Mercury direct in your sign is giving you the kind of focus that’s been missing in action for too long and with the New Moon also in your sign, it’s time to clear away the remnants of last year, roll up your sleeves and start again.
This may be February – and Valentine’s Day is fast approaching – but is it going to be a romantic month for you? For some of you the answer will be “yes” but it may romantic in a much more low key or private way than usual. This may be because you simply can’t get together right now. However, the Venus-Mars transiting conjunction may indicate there are some unresolved emotional issues in your relationships that are playing on your mind. As the month progresses you may feel some pressure building…
…And things may come to a head around the time of the Full Moon in the middle of the month. It’s a month that will also have a few potential surprises thanks to that Jupiter-Uranus sextile. Watch out for any unplanned increases in expenditure on the home front. Also watch out for any sudden decisions that may involve pulling up your roots to relocate. That may sound extreme, but all things are possible with Jupiter and Uranus and you may find that there is no time like the present to take the opportunity to change your ‘comfort zone’ – wherever and however that may be.
February 2022 Horoscope: Pisces
The month begins with the New Moon in the ideal place for you Pisces – in the sector of dreams and imagination. It’s your spiritual home but you may have been feeling like a lost soul since the year began. Fortunately, the New Moon signals that it’s time to move things forward, and as Mercury also turns direct around this time you’ll begin to visualise or sense how things are going to be. Pisces is tuned into intangibles and this month you’ll discover you’re tuned into the right frequency; it’s welcome after a period of background noise.
All of this is really improving your emotional wellbeing – as is the prospect of a fun and sociable month. Venus and Mars are in your friendship sector so expect your social life to take a turn for the better over the next few weeks. In fact, you may be the guiding light in all of this as you’re keen to stretch your social muscles after too much time spent under the social radar. However not everyone will see things your way. You may be a little ‘touchy’ this month so try and use a charm offensive to encourage others to follow your lead.
Finally. The surprise. Everyone has one this month – including you. In fact, you may be the surprise this month. You may appear to be larger than life – and the centre of attention. Jupiter is starting to feel at home in your sign and is making you feel expansive in your approach to life. You may feel you want to be more than you are and you’re likely to feel restless as a result. The surprising thing for you may be the stream of crazy ideas that will fill your head this month. Do share; it may take a cooler head than yours to sort out the good from the mad.
