We’re rolling into February with Mercury in retrograde in Aquarius, which started on January 30th and will last till the 20th of this month. This retrograde will be especially potent for you, Aries, as it will light up your house of networking, friendships, and hopes & dreams—the house that Aquarius oversees.
Watch out for miscommunications with besties and co-workers, and delays in professional projects through Feb. Another day to have on your cal: Feb 10th. On this day, your planetary ruler, Mars, will butt heads with Mercury as it retrogrades. Be sure not to have any important conversations—especially at work or with friends—on the 10th, plus or minus three days.
Just before we kick off February, Mercury retrograde in Aquarius will moonwalk into your house of career, notoriety, and fame, starting Jan. 30th. It’s a bit of a tough spot, Taurus. Be prepared for delays, misunderstandings, or revisions/rewrites taking place in your career this month.
Another possibility is someone you’ve worked with in the past resurfacing and boosting your career status (we love this option). On the 1st, Venus will also scoot over to that house and join Mercury—a welcome visitor! This will really help your art and/or passion projects be seen and appreciated by the public, especially through social media.
Till the 20th of the month, Mercury will be retrograde in Aquarius in your house of education, foreign affiliations, and long distance travel, so expect delays and mix-ups in these areas. Another possibility is that someone from your past resurfaces to talk to you about one of these things, especially via email or social media.
If you’re looking for love, romantic Venus will be lighting up this same house of travel and education till the 25th of the month. You may find a cutie from overseas or in an online class. If you’re already in a relationship, a socially distanced road trip will keep the spark alive.[white_box]

Expect an intense Feb., Cancer! Till the 25th, relationship-oriented Venus will be navigating your 8th house of (figurative) death, rebirth and transformation. From family members, to friends, to romantic interests, you could be seeing big changes that leave you feeling emotional.
To complicate matters, Mercury will be retrograde in the same house till the 20th. This could bring up intense conversations about the past or create big misunderstandings (or both). Ground yourself with plenty of rest, exercise, and loving confidantes ready to talk you through the change.
Get ready to test your bonds this month, Leo! Mercury will retrograde through your house of partnerships for most of Feb., bringing delays and miscommunications to your relationships with romantic partners, business partners, and any other partners.
Another possibility here is that someone from your past asks to partner with you in some (potentially unexpected) way. On the 18th, the Sun, your planetary ruler, will move into your house of internal transformation. This transit will help you let go of beliefs that have been holding you back, so that you can show up in a more powerful way.
Ready for a little office drama, Virgo? Mercury will be retrograde in your house of work and daily routines until the 20th of the month. Miscommunications and setbacks are a big possibility, so save those important pitches and meetings for March!
To help balance the vibes, you’ll get a full moon in Virgo on the 27th. It’s a powerful astrological boost that will help you manifest the biggest things on your to-do list. Sow your seeds throughout the month to help these dreams come to fruition.[white_box]

Double whammy in the house of romance, Libra! On Jan. 30th, Mercury goes retrograde in your house of flirtation and creativity, creating misunderstandings and setbacks in these areas.
The plot thickens when, the next day, sexy Venus follows suit, moving into this same house and heightening the energy around the areas Venus oversees, which are—you guessed it—romance and creativity! If possible, err on the side of caution by waiting till March to handle any pressing issues in these arenas; you’ll be glad you did.
Hold on tight, Scorp! Mercury will be retrograde in your house of home and family till the 20th of the month. This house oversees your literal home—so you could see delays and miscommunications on the home front—but it also deals with your family of origin and upbringing, so drama with the fam-of-your-not-choosing is also a possibility.
Look at it as an opportunity to have a new conversation around old issues. On the 25th, Venus in tenderhearted Pisces will light up your house of romance. This is a very sweet time to create closeness and intimacy.
Mercury retrograde is comin’ in hot, starting January 30th and lasting till the 20th of the month. It will light up your house of communication and publishing, so it’s kind of an extra helping of retrograde. Expect misunderstandings or delays around all things communication-oriented, and save important meetings, PR, or public speaking events till March if possible.
On the other hand, Mercury retrograde can bring around people or projects from your past in the areas of communication, so keep an eye out for that, too. On the 26th, your planetary ruler, Jupiter, will trine the Node of Destiny—this is a great day for making career moves, as long as they align with your passions.[white_box]

Mercury retrograde is sliding into your house of earned income on January 30, and hanging out till the 20th of Feb.

On February 17, Saturn, your planetary ruler, will square unpredictable Uranus. This day, plus or minus three days, is not the time to make rash decisions or hold important meetings—wait till after the 20th when this energy as cleared.
Happy birthday, Aquarius! You start your star season off with Mercury retrograde in your sign (womp womp). Your ego and self-image are in the crosshairs with this one, so be on the lookout for miscommunications that challenge your self-esteem. (Should they arise, just remember to humble yourself to the life lesson; as a fixed sign, you sometimes need a gentle reminder to soften.)
Loving Venus is right behind Mercury, and will enter Aquarius on the first of the month, bringing relationship intimacy with her. You’re one of the more emotionally reserved signs, Aquarius, but Venus will ask you to let down your guard, get out of your head, and expose your heart. Use this planet’s sweet, magnetic power to guide you.
Ready for a February twofer? On January 30, Mercury will retrograde in your 12th house, the house ruled by Pisces, making the lessons ultra potent for you. This house controls endings, spirituality, and secrets, so expect some miscommunications and/or setbacks in these areas. On the 18th, the Sun will enter Pisces, and a week later on the 25th, Venus will do the same.
This makes the last 10 days of the month into the first week of March (this time especially, since the power of the Mercury retrograde shadow will be wearing off) one of the most powerful times for you to be noticed. Put off important meetings and events till the end of the month when this energy will be working in your favor.
