February 2021 Daily Astrology
February 1: After some nighttime hurdles the new month assumes solid footing. If you work the night shift, watch your speed and stay calm. An ominous, early morning Solar square to Mars makes night owls and early-risers ultra serious and inclined to worry. Mid-morning sees love star Venus move into Aquarius, where a planetary party is going on. Taking on a more outgoing style, Venus joins Saturn, Jupiter, the Sun and Mercury in the tolerant, community-minded sign. The day then plays out with the tactful Moon forming a series of uplifting trine aspects. Friendships and good vibes bloom. Business matters are facilitated. Discussions about goals, strategies and timing may grow passionate but the predominant impulse is teaming up to best serve the greater good.

February 2: Early birds as well as gritty groundhogs rise to meet the new day with the wind at their backs. The waning Libra Moon forms a fine pre-dawn trine with the Aquarius Sun. The encouraging alignment promotes restful sleep and for those who are awake boosts inner confidence. Friendly ties are also favored. Some strained social unions may improve but other relationships could require a masterful touch. On a day when Mars and the Sun remain at odds, actions prove more persuasive than words regardless of how charming or literate the messaging. A consistent and steady approach to partnering is recommended. Keep the focus on shared interests and mutual benefits.

February 3: The early going is sluggish under the void of course Libra Moon. Don’t spend too much time wondering about the imagined needs of partners. If you have a question or doubt, ask. By mid morning the Moon is in Scorpio, setting the stage for a series of celestial tests that persist well into tomorrow. Lunar squares and oppositions can make the day feel like an endurance contest. Fortunately, as challenging angles give reason for pause, they also motivate. The Moon’s early afternoon square with Venus can lead to increased intimacy and trust. It may also fuel discontent. Intention makes the difference. Love wisely. Align your life force with those who appreciate your presence and efforts. Flexibility is also required, especially this evening when fate is likely to disrupt schedules. Humility also helps.

February 4: The morning hours may feel like an obstacle course or marathon. Timing can be off, either too soon or too late. Opinions easily annoy. The Scorpio Moon is testing Jupiter and Mars. Heartfelt debates and disagreements are sparked. Good tacticians know it is sometimes better to lose a battle in order to win a war. Engage in discussions but try to be discreet. Self-edit your words. Keep inflammatory thoughts to yourself. The noon hour brings the Last Quarter phase, a testing angle between the Moon and the Aquarius Sun. Hurt feelings will not soon be forgotten, so act accordingly. The afternoon hours present a far better climate for communicating. The Moon’s evening trine with Neptune confers a less charged atmosphere. Take advantage and make a peace offering. Insomniacs are again advised to watch their tongues, tweets and other posts.

February 5: Long before sunrise the Scorpio Moon is void of course. The resulting lack of energy robs the early morning hours of drive and determination. If emotional stagnation occurs, activity may be the best antidote. Venus is about to conjunct Saturn and one must do what one must do. This is not the day to shirk responsibilities. By mid-morning the Moon is in Sagittarius. Optimism increases along along with rising energy levels. By evening moods are buoyant. A festive ambience contributes to enjoying life. Play or listen to music. Savor friends and good food. Tonight’s pleasures have been earned. Take serious stock of partnerships and other relations as the hour grows late. Either renew or deepen your commitment or be prepared to cut ties.

Daybreak features a sweet sextile between the Sagittarius Moon and Jupiter, a harbinger of learning experiences and other adventures. Keep your eyes and ears open today. There are important lessons to consider. Reunions are also likely to occur. Tonight’s enjoyable social developments may bring other surprises. Venus is once again active, testing unpredictable Uranus. However, circuitous the route or unlikely, love will find a way.

February 7: Relish a laid back Sunday morning. Sleep late. Linger over a leisurely breakfast or brunch, taking time to savor each morsel. Go for a walk. Indulge in a favorite hobby. The relative peace and quiet persists much of the day, until late afternoon when the Moon enters the more ambitious sign of Capricorn. Thoughts may turn to the future but there is little impetus to tackle demanding projects. Planning is facilitated by the pending lunar trine with visionary Uranus. Stick to groundwork. At this latter stage of the monthly lunar cycle it’s best to wait a few days before launching a new project.

Recollections can also provide new insights into past events. For some, the time is right to be in touch with an old friend or long ago lover. Moods are exceptionally happy as we head into the weekend.

When these two astrological heavyweights tangle, something has got to give. The progressive tide of evolutionary Uranus meets and erodes the rocky shoreline of Saturn’s conservatism. The trick is taking the best of the past and incorporating it into a better future. Be flexible. Keep an open mind. Consider new ways of thinking. Experiment. Adapt and embrace changing circumstances. Use technological tools to increase efficiency. Our world is constantly transforming and it appears more obvious at this time.

February 18: Before dawn the Sun enters inventive Pisces, a harbinger of seasonal change. Spring is near. The waxing Moon is in Taurus. Lunar squares to Jupiter and Venus give the day a busy feel. It may feel like a scramble to keep up with chores and other commitments. Fortunately, the Moon’s early afternoon alignment with Jupiter bestows trust that all is well.

February 19: The Moon reaches the First Quarter stage today, an invitation to evaluate current situations and likely outcomes. Before reaching the critical degree there is a void of course Moon period that holds sway over most of the morning. The resulting inertia makes it seem as though life is moving in slow motion. There’s another good reason for proceeding with caution. Mental Mercury has stationed in preparation for a return to forward motion. This is not a good day for making new commitments. By noon the Moon is in Gemini where she forms the square with the Pisces Sun. Indecision can immobilize, emotions are all over the map. Venus is also in a square with Mars. Be careful about what you attract or ask for. The evening hours offer celestial reassurances that all is well and will be well.

Practical concerns enter into deliberations. The path forward becomes clearer around midday. Given the strong likelihood of altered circumstances, plans may not be finalized for a few more days. For now it’s best to keep all options on the table.

There’s sure to be good news and planning future get togethers can be fun. By mid=afternoon the Moon is void of course. The quieter, more mellow vibe is fine for reading and contemplative work.

February 22: The waxing Cancer Moon puts most folks in touch with their deeper feelings and needs. Loyalties are keenly felt. Some souls hold on to people or situations that in truth no longer serve them. We humans are creatures of habit. Change can be tough.

The alignment also favors community building, networking with extended families, friends and associates. Carefully consider the perspectives of trusted pals.

Mars’ trine to Pluto empowers and enriches a great many souls. Use your energy and enthusiasm wisely. Don’t leave significant partners out of the mix. Be sure to acknowledge the contributions of all, even those who may no longer be part of a current project. Everyone likes to feel appreciated. By nightfall the Moon is setting off the inherent instability of the Saturn/Uranus square. Applied with wisdom, true power makes everyone feel better. Tonight’s complications reflect a misuse of authority. If boundaries have been crossed or rules broken, there could be the need for a course correction or stoic patience in the face of a delay.

February 25: Against the backdrop of the waxing Leo Moon Venus enters Pisces early today. The Goddess of Love soon awakens a private, lyrical place in many hearts. There’s little time for looking back as the nearly full Moon opposes Jupiter and the Sun aligns with Uranus. The future calls! Loudly and insistently. Ride the rising lunar tide and press onward towards your chosen goals. Line up support from friends. Give a sales talk or listen attentively to a presentation or the latest news. A breakthrough could be imminent but getting everyone on the same page requires a solid effort. Things quiet down tonight. Plan to relax and enjoy favorite pastimes.

Emotions are running hot. Try to stay calm. Avoid rushing a decision. Minutes after noon the Moon enters dutiful Virgo. Concentration improves but with the Moon opposing Venus avoid letting your attention be too detail oriented. Make it your business to see the big picture. It may be wise to let a person in need sort out their own problem. The pace of life accelerates later in the day. The rising Moon appears full. Take in her purifying light. An illuminating idea or intuitive awareness could prove key to better relationships and ultimately, self-mastery.
Moon in Leo v/c 6:32AM-12:07PM Moon enters Virgo.
February 27: Sleep is an interesting proposition under the Full ’Snow’ Moon. Now in Virgo, maximum intensity is reached during the wee hours of the morning. Support from Venus and Uranus adds energy and spice to the late night ambience. Anticipation can be great, even if the sensation isn’t based on anything tangible. The urge to improve, repair, clean and renew is encouraged. Rest comes more easily post Full Moon. Dawn finds the Moon slowly moving into an opposition with mystical Neptune. The remainder of the day unfolds in a magical “Full Moon” afterglow. Optimists see life through rose-colored glasses. Less assured souls may wait for the bottom to fall out. In between there is room for a great many creative possibilities. Cook, make music, paint, take photographs or just tune in to Mother Nature. Whatever is your pleasure, I recommend proceeding secure in the knowledge that every prayer is being answered.

A relaxing midday interlude follows, lasting until mid-afternoon, when the Moon enters Libra. Now waning, we are entering a comparatively mellow period. Use the Libra Moon energy. Attend to partners and friends. Make good on an IOU or just check in to see how a buddy is doing. One good turn deserves another.
