February 2024 Astrology Update: Radical Transformation
On February 1, 10:17 AM —
The Astrology of February 2024 continues to highlight the invitation for radical transformation. During the first half of the month, we experience an increasing prominence of Aquarian energy: besides experiencing a Full Moon in the sign, the three personal planets, Mercury, Venus, and Mars, enter Aquarius just a few days from one another. As soon as they enter Aquarius, they all cross Pluto. These alignments inspire us to release into the fire everything that isn’t true and allow our lives, relationships, ways of thinking, and desires to radically transform. Moreover, the upcoming New Moon in Aquarius is going to square Aquarius’ modern ruler Uranus, emphasizing the invitation to make drastic changes, renew our lives, and break free from stagnation and stuckness.
Let’s have a look at the main transits for the month for more details.
Mercury enters Aquarius
Feb 5, 2024, 12:10 AM EST
Mercury’s ingress in Aquarius invites us to open our minds to new possibilities and to trust in our ability to navigate the unknown. This transit encourages us to experiment with different mindsets, communication habits, and ways of perceiving our life situation. Mercury in Aquarius is a call to think outside the box, a call to embrace change and be open to the unfamiliar and unexpected. This combination of energies inspires us to see the bigger picture and gain new insights into old challenges. Mercury’s transit through Aquarius supports technological advancements, promotes a desire for innovation and progress, and encourages us to consider how our ideas can benefit everyone, not only ourselves.
New Moon in Aquarius
Feb 9, 2024, 5:58 PM EST
The Aquarius New Moon begins a lunar cycle focused on revolutionizing the structure of our lives in order to align it with our authentic, liberated Self. This event also invites reflection and reconsideration of how we show up in our relationship with groups and communities and reminds us of the power of connection and collaboration. The Aquarius New Moon is going to tightly square Aquarius’ modern ruler, Uranus, currently transiting in the sign of Taurus. This configuration indicates an increase in our desire for change, freedom, and authentic living and will inspire many of us to make decisions that allow us to break free from stagnation and be fully and freely expressed.
Mars enters Aquarius
Feb 13, 2024, 01:05 AM EST
Mars moving into Aquarius brings a surge of revolutionary energy and a stronger desire for change and innovation. After Mercury, Mars too enters the sign of the Water Bearer, catalyzing feelings of restlessness and fueling our urge to rebel from conformity and explore new, unconventional solutions to collective issues. Mars’ journey through Aquarius inspires us to fight for progress and innovation and to channel our energy into pursuits and projects that can benefit our communities and the larger human collective. This transit begins with a Mars-Pluto conjunction, a potent aspect that increases our determination and willpower, as well as our willingness to take bold risks and make courageous choices to transform our lives.
Venus enters Aquarius
Feb 16, 2024, 11:05 AM EST
Shortly after Mars, Venus moves into Aquarius too. Venus’s journey through the sign of the Water Bearer is an invitation to question our existing beliefs about relationships, wealth, community, pleasure, and self-love. This transit encourages us to challenge our existing values and motivates us to explore alternative ways to make an income, to relate with others, and to relate to our bodies and our sensuality. Venus in Aquarius inspires us to be unconventional, motivates us to embrace our quirks, and reminds us that freedom and connection are not mutually exclusive.
Pisces season begins
Feb 18, 2024, 11:13 PM EST
The Sun leaves Aquarius and enters Pisces, the last sign of the Zodiac wheel. Pisces season is always a time of closure and conclusion, a liminal time of the year, a period in which things come to a head, dissolve, or change their form. The Sun’s transit through Pisces is an opportunity to observe our relationship with endings, letting go, and not knowing. At this time, the invitation for us is to surrender, follow the flow, have faith in Life’s timing, and deepen our trust in the Universe. Pisces season invites us to put our creativity in service to something greater than ourselves and reminds us to be aware of the impact that our energy has on the collective, as we are all connected, we are all one.
Mercury enters Pisces
Feb 23, 2024, 02:29 AM EST
Shortly after Pisces season begins, Mercury leaves Aquarius and enters the sign of the Fish. In Pisces, a Mutable Water archetype, Mercury expresses itself in a way that isn’t traditional or linear. During this time, we have an opportunity to explore different ways of making sense of our reality and build new bridges between logic and intuition, discovering how our logical mind can operate to serve and support our intuition, and vice versa. Mercury in Pisces invites us to expand our perceptions beyond the five senses and rationality and allow our intuition to inform our decision-making processes.
Full Moon in Virgo
Feb 24, 2024, 07:30 AM EST
As the month comes to an end, the Moon goes Full in the Mutable Earth sign of Virgo. During Pisces season, the Virgo Full Moon brings some order in chaos and brings our attention to where discernment is needed and what needs to be better organized in our lives. The activation of the Virgo-Pisces polarity invites reflection on our relationship with both order and chaos, with discipline and flow, with effort and surrender. Ultimately, this Full Moon reminds us of the value of integrating the physical and spiritual dimensions of our lives and recognizing their inherent unity. The message of this lunation is that your life is your spiritual practice, it is not separate from it.
February 2024 Astrology Update: Our Invitation
During the second half of February 2024, as both the Sun and Mercury enter Pisces, the vibe starts shifting and the momentum decreases. The Universe gives us some space and time to integrate everything that happened since the Sun and Pluto entered Aquarius together on January 20.
As the Yin polarity gains prominence, the invitation for us is to shift our focus from the external to the internal, prioritize being over doing, and slow down the pace of our lives when possible. February ends with a Virgo Full Moon opposite Saturn in Pisces, a powerful reminder of the value of commitment and of the need to learn how to harness the flow to our advantage instead of using force.
