This is another transformative month for you, Sagittarius, although now the changes that you are involved with spring directly from your own inner experience. The astrological currents of this month’s cycle indicate a mystically inclined form of communication and self-expression. New plans that arise in early February attempt to resolve questions regarding deep-seated habit patterns that may have outgrown their present day usefulness. Your values and your worldview are shifting, and you will ultimately want your actions to match your ongoing depth researches. In this, intuition might be your best guide. Your finances are an area of focus these past weeks and months as you adjust to changing perspectives there as well. An upcoming Mercury Retrograde during the second half of the month draws you even further to the inside. Beginning on the 16th, this is a wholly introspective period for you, with a great deal of attention drawn to your home environment, current family dynamics, or investigating issues stemming from your family of origin.

The month of February begin with Mars still transiting through your sign until the 16th. Mars usually has an energizing influence and can be a fantastic support to get things done. You should have even more stamina and vitality than usual. You could take advantage of this window of opportunity to tackle your to-do list. Venus in Pisces sextile Pluto in Capricorn on February 2nd could bring surprise expanses on the home front or the desire to splurge. Mercury enters Pisces the next day where it will station retrograde later this month. Mercury’s entrance into Pisces shifts some of your attention on your base of operation or where you anchor down at the end of the day. You might have to contend with logistical issues while trying to implement innovative structures on the home front or better ways of doing things involving family. Changes are taking place in connection with your routine, the way you manage your schedule, and how much time is left for relaxing at the end of the day.
Venus enters your fellow Fire sign of Aries on February 7th and will transit here until March 4th. The transit of Venus in Aries is good news for Sagittarius, and should endow you with the creative impulses needed to get a project going. Venus will be transiting in the part of your chart that deals with pleasure, romance, and creativity. This will increase your desire to go out, have fun, and indulge your senses. If you have a romantic connection in the works, the transit of Venus in Aries will surely ignite the passions to the next level.
The Full Moon takes place in the sign of Leo on the late evening of February 8th/9th, and highlights your need to expand beyond your current limitations. You could be reaching a culmination point with what you can do in your current circumstances. The Full Moon could clarify things in regards to academia, a learning journey, or travel plans in the works. You feel the need to see the world and to have mind-opening experiences. You could also feel polarized, however, with current circumstances and responsibilities. Mind-opening journeys are like soul food for you now. Feeling the potentiality of a new adventure is truly where you thrive. The Full Moon in Leo will bring up solutions and the push you need for a bold move.
On February 16th Mercury stations retrograde in Pisces (until at least March 9th). This Mercury Retrograde in Pisces is your cue to deal with your responsibilities at home. Indirectly this retrograde will also bring up relationship and career topics. The next three weeks form an excellent opportunity to organize your affairs and create more space for the incoming changes you want to implement in your life. On the same day of the 16th, Mars will leave your sign and enter Capricorn (until March 30th). Mars in Capricorn will bring an emphasis on your finances, your income and will help you get that part of your life in order.
The Sun enters the mutable sign of Pisces on February 18th as we slowly start, over the next thirty days, to move towards the end of winter in the Northern Hemisphere. The Sun in Pisces will bring movement and change to situations that have felt stagnant. You could start to see what will need to be surrendered in order for you to move ahead. The sign of Pisces is located at the end of the Zodiac before the renewal of Spring when the Sun enters Aries. It represents a liminal placement in the year, when the tides are changing but the horizon is still out of sight. There is a definite shift occurring at the beginning of this new decade that offers many possibilities to restructure our lives. With Jupiter, the traditional ruler of Pisces transiting in earthy Capricorn, the focus of these changes is and will continue to be on your material and physical realities. For you, a lot of these changes are taking place on your home scene right now.
Your ruler Jupiter – currently transiting in Capricorn – sextiles Neptune in Pisces on February 20th; this is a particularly positive aspect indicating that much growth is possible now, thanks to your positive attitude. You might be endowed with a real sense of possibility, at this time, that allows you to make bold decisions. Your ability to have faith can set you up for success and growth.
The New Moon of February 23rd takes place in the sign of Pisces, representing a powerful time of growth regarding the place you call home, and also with your root psychology and family issues. The night is always the darkest around the New Moon. However this New Moon represents a powerful time of inception. There could still be many logistical issues to contend with thanks to Mercury moving in retrograde. However, the reset has already occurred and your gaze is now on the distant horizon. On February 25th, Mercury and the Sun meet in the sign of Pisces for their inferior conjunction. This is an important marker in the Mercury Retrograde cycle that can ultimately offer clear solutions. Mercury will still be moving retrograde in Pisces for another few weeks but things will start to fall into place.
