Hello and welcome to February. We begin the second month of 2022, continuing with some retrograde aspects from Mercury in Capricorn, the airy influence of Aquarius, then moving into the watery elements of Pisces. For some of you, Mercury in Capricorn created unnecessary stress in communication, slowing the momentum of some personal projects and making you feel a bit trapped in limbo. In addition, Venus was also in retrograde in Capricorn, which probably hit the romance department a bit hard, especially when adding Mercury, the planet of communication, into the mix. The good news, Venus is direct once February begins, and as of February 4th, Mercury will be as well.
When Mercury moves into Aquarius in February, there will be a feeling of relief, yet the energy may seem like disorganized chaos, almost like a genie out of the bottle. Keep in mind that some of the chaos may also be having to clean the mess created by the combinations of both Venus and Mercury being retrograde.
February 2022 Monthly Astrological Forecast
The positions of the planets play an important role this month, so let’s start by taking a deeper dive into the various transits and what you can expect as a result.
Personal Planetary Transits for Sun Signs, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars
Regardless of what obstacles you may face, the ruling planet Uranus in Aquarius allows you to find clever ways to resolve all types of tricky or compromising issues, so have no fear; you got this. Also, some good news, Mercury in Retrograde ends on February 4, allowing areas influenced by Mercury to stabilize until the next retrograde begins on May 10. In addition, there are no other new retrogrades until April 29, when Pluto in Capricorn goes retrograde. Currently, the only retrograde is North Node in Taurus which started January 1, lasting until January 1, 2023.
Sun in Aquarius (January 20, 2022- February 18, 2022)
During this period, your independence and personal needs take priority over the agenda of the others. Many may not understand your need for space or alone time. During this transit, relationships can feel a bit draining and demanding, which makes you want to withdraw simply to recharge.
Sun in Pisces (February 18, 2022 - March 20, 2022)
The Sun in Pisces tends to be empathic and eternally hopeful when it comes to relationships. Though they may not always be aligned with the goals others have, they have the ability to tap into the needs of others, often making them ideal partners.
Mercury in Aquarius
You are free from the retrograde aspects, allowing you to communicate with ease and enjoy less stress when dealing with others. Also, you will be able to enjoy the aspects of Valentine since Venus is once more in its steady solid-state of harmony (of course, this will vary from person to person).
Venus in Capricorn
Until March 6, 2022, the energy of Venus in Capricorn provides us with a nice sense of stability and reassurance in all areas that involve relationships, whether romantic, platonic, or business. Capricorns’ tenacious nature creates a force that is unstoppable and packed with endurance that can be counted on for the long haul. In the area of relationships, there is longevity and stability under this transit individuals may not be romantic, but they are reliable and not afraid to commit. It is a good transit for establishing long term connections, however, wait for after the retrograde.
Mars in Capricorn
During January 24 until March 6, 2022, Mars may sit back a bit in Capricorn, making its fiery nature a bit subdued, but do not underestimate the ferociousness behind this combination. Mars remains forceful, and ambitious, but takes a bit more time to react and tends to be more strategic when diving into action. Mars in Capricorn is about the long game and not quick meaningless actions. Patience and endurance are amplified.
Full Moon Aspects in February 2022
Full Snow Moon in Leo - February 16, 2022
The Full Snow Moon in Leo amplifies your confidence levels, especially if you have been dealing with a lot of restrains and challenges in getting your needs met or expressing yourself.
Planetary Transits of the Outer Planets. (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto)
Jupiter in Pisces
This transit which started on December 28, 2021, will last until May 10, 2022. The aspects projected by Jupiter are larger-than-life energy and amplifies aspects of whatever sign it touches. In Pisces, Jupiter heightens sensitivity, fantasy, daydreaming, ideas, romance as well as indulgence. It can enhance lucky aspects when placed favorably or toxic ones. Jupiter sets the stage for hedonistic pleasures and romance galore, often creating an unrealistic dreamlike love connection when not properly grounded.
Saturn in Aquarius
Where Jupiter expands, Saturn restrains, often creating a seesaw effect of both lucky breaks and close disastrous calls. Saturn being the taskmaster make sure that things do not get out of control. Saturn currently direct in Aquarius until March 2023 will keep the free-flowing tendencies of the airy sign grounded and contained. In the area of romance, Saturn keeps the Aquarius free spirit from being too impulsive when it comes to expressing their emotions, which helps them think before leaping.
Uranus in Taurus
This transit which began May 15, 2018, will continue to impact us until 2026. During this slow-moving transit, expect changes, even for individuals who are comfortable with routine. Uranus is a powerhouse in the area of innovation, transformations and getting things done. Taurus which is ruled by Venus enjoys the leisure more lay back style of savoring things without many interruptions.
Unfortunately, even the happy cozy Taurus will have to adjust, and it will with determination and profound impact. Relationships change drastically, some become more stable and yet others do not survive. Keep in mind if something ends, it truly allows for something new to enter, especially during Uranus transits, since it rules transformations and manifestation.
Neptune in Pisces
Neptune, the co-ruling planet of Pisces, along with Jupiter, amplifies natural qualities related to Pisces. During this transit (February 2011 to March 2025) individuals find themselves exploding with creativity which not only fosters artistic creations, but also contributes to creative problem-solving skills.
However, our abilities to be realistic and see facts that require addressing can be at times impaired during this period, since not all details are made available. On the romantic side, this transit puts the “R” in Romance and all things fantasy and magical when it comes to dating.
Pluto in Capricorn
The transit of Pluto is typically slow since it takes over 12 to 30 years to orbit. Currently it’s been in Capricorn from November 27, 2008, until January 14, 2024. Pluto being the planet that influences cultural dynamics, it will undoubtably impact social norms. In the area of love.
Capricorn in Pluto forces us to look at traditional roles and standards of engagement. Individuals may find themselves not settling for traditional marriages or accepting roles because its expected. In many cases, relationships connections revamp themselves to higher personal standards instead of traditional formats.
Significant Aspects of Personal Planets
Mercury and Pluto will be in conjunction, allowing you to feel comfortable expressing your needs and not worrying so much about being judged or criticized. On February 17, 2022, Jupiter is sextile Uranus, providing a sense of freedom and creative surges that can promote a general optimistic view allowing you to leave behind some of the doom and gloom sensations you may have been facing. In addition, you will be eager to change directions and move away from old patterns and experience new adventures.
