How have you been feeling so far this month? Focused? Tired? Romantic? Creative? Astrologer @srnaverse spells out what the stars have in store for you this February ✨
The 1st of February heralds in the Chinese Lunar New Year, in the sign of the brave and confident Tiger. Charging forward we can all embody a little bit of what the Tiger represents in 2022, by strategising, volunteering and leading - not with ego, but with conviction and truth. A Tiger is attentive to his/her surroundings and makes the most of what they have, regardless of the weather. We celebrate the Aquarian this month and all the wonderful attributes it takes to make the most eclectic sign of the zodiac; they are friendly, expressive and optimistic. Very clever, creative and non-conforming - Aquarius is the sign of the independent - unusual and original! Astrologically, the month begins with a potent and very Aquarian New Moon on the 1st, with the Sun and Saturn double dosing the ‘peace & love’ energy that the Aquarius is known to emit. It’s a great time to reach out, reconstruct and re-engage with a career path, hobby or friendship. The beginning of the month has exceptional energy for action but expect the intensity to continue to climb - there is SO much going on all platforms. On the 4th, Mercury stations direct after 3 weeks spent in retrograde balancing between Capricorn/Aquarius.
Uranus is sextile Jupiter in Pisces this month, helping us think outside of the box and work in tune with ‘good luck’. A Full Moon in Leo arrives on the 16th, opposing the Aquarius Sun and enabling a romantic, heart to heart conversation to take place. We are pulled by two different sides of the one, fixed energy, so it’s imperative we embrace their duality - and all the valid feelings that come with that. Leo and Aquarius work in tandem like that, Leo is very intimate in nature whereas Aquarius is more personable, with everyone at any time. They aren’t very ‘selective’, they’d rather just get on with everyone. This Full Moon plays into the theme of ‘big heart, open mind’ - utilizing the best of both signs and personalities. Around the date of this lunation, Venus and Mars align providing an element of surrealism and tenderness. Fixed signs such as Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius will feel the effect of this Moon the most, expressing themselves in an unusual way to those closest. February is a month to redefine what it means to feel ‘luxury’ - and as Andre Leon Talley put it - “Luxury is to be able to take control of one’s life, health and the pursuit of happiness in a way that is joyful''. Pisces season begins on the 20th, diving deep into the dreamy, sensitive and perceptive waters the fish embodies. Tell someone you love them or make some random art, your heart will thank you for it!
See you next month,
February is social - it’s time to let your voice be heard! A New Moon in Aquarius occurs on the 1st, in your 11th house of socializing, merging with Saturn and the Sun.
