Your ruling planet Mars is strong throughout February. Mars is in Capricorn and your communication sector. This is a strategic, calculated Mars that has conviction and can speak with authority. Capricorn rules your local community, so it’s an excellent month to be finding your place or your voice within your local neighbourhood.
If you’ve been waiting on information or feel confused about decision-making, Mercury’s change of direction on the 4th could be significant. This often brings the truth to light.
Or, you hear from someone you’ve been waiting on for some time. The lines of communication are re-opened once again. The 4th would be a good date to reach out to a sibling or neighbour or to engage in any situation where you’re seeking reconciliation.
Capricorn is linked to schools and study in your horoscope, so you may be involved in research work. Or, perhaps you’re journalling or podcasting, whatever your chosen form of communication. The 11th is a date to go in deep.
There’s help on hand too because Mars isn’t alone this month. In fact, the lovers of the heavens, Venus and Mars, are side-by-side. Look out for the person who can help or support you. Find the right partner, adviser or associate.
Venus and Mars unite on the 16th, the day of a powerful Full Moon in Leo and your career and vocation sector. This is a great date to trust your intuition and make a key decision about your next steps.
Home & Family
Also this month, the Sun is in Aquarius and your home and family sector. There’s a New Moon here on the 1st, a symbol of new beginnings. Yet, this New Moon falls next to Saturn so this pulls you back to the past and potentially brings an ending before you can start over.
You may fall victim to restrictions or find that fear dominates. Take the pace slow during the New Moon and don’t try and force the issue, wherever you want to get ahead. Things may become clearer close to the Full Moon mid-month. This relates to all issues surrounding your home, your property, your family and your past.
Also on the 14th, talk planet Mercury returns to Aquarius and this often flags up a theme of second chances. Something that didn’t work out first time around.
There’s another strong planetary influence this month as one of the major aspects of 2022 takes place on the 18th. On the day that the Sun enters Pisces, big planet Jupiter in Pisces aligns with Uranus in Taurus. These two planets are entrepreneurial and freedom-loving. They represent breakthroughs and leaps of faith.
Uranus is in Taurus and your relationship sector and Jupiter’s in Pisces and your romance sector. Therefore, this could spell good news for love. The other key dates that are important for you are the 4th & 8th when your planet Mars aligns first with Jupiter, then with Uranus.
Uranus is the planet linked to twists and turns so relationships could definitely be intriguing. You might choose an unconventional or younger partner or be ready to experiment with your love life. There’s an ‘anything goes’ feel to Uranus moving through your relationship sector so expect the unexpected and don’t hold on tight.
For some of you, events could be unusually romantic this month with strong focus on Pisces and your romance sector after the 18th. The 23rd & 24th could be stand-out dates for love.
The 18th is the date when the Sun enters Pisces, your fellow water sign. Therefore, this is potentially a creative time for you, when you’re wise to encourage your inner artist or expand your ideas through visualisation.
Pisces rules the most creative sector of your horoscope and the things in life that you give birth to, including children, also your gifts and talents, your masterpiece. It’s about embracing play more so than work and doing what you love.
With emphasis on the star sign Pisces, this is ideal for dreams and tapping into the realm of your imagination. As a water sign, you know how to engage deeply with inspiration and ideas and activities that feed your soul. In fact, it’s imperative you do so.
As a Sun Scorpio, you have a laser focus and you love having something to get your teeth into that becomes your private obsession. The astrology suggests that this is a good month to lose yourself in a passionate or creative pursuit.
Mercury Turning Direct
Here are some guidelines for when the communication planet is moving in the right direction after the 4th:
- try again – second chances are a classic Mercury direct theme
- sort out any misunderstandings
- consider what Mercury retrograde taught you, i.e. where are you wasting your time?
- initiate a conversation, re-open the lines of communication
- write a list – keep it short & deal with what’s most important or urgent in your life
- handle any technological or transport issues
- plug back in & renew your energy & focus
