Aquarius Horoscope February 2023

Aquarius horoscope, sun, bubbles

Aquarius Time

Aquarius is the star sign of the month as the Sun is here until the 18th. It’s birthday month for many of you, a time to celebrate your life and the day of your birth. Plus, communication planet Mercury joins the Sun in Aquarius on the 11th.

This turns the focus towards yourself and your personal goals and aims. It’s about being out in the world, thinking about where you’re heading and why. And, it’s a reminder that individual actions make a difference.

Your star sign Aquarius is linked to modern technology so you may find your voice online. Alternatively, you could decide to play your part within society, politics or the collective.

The current astrology is about the future, not only for yourself but the world as well. You may have a unique role to play moving forward. Plus, there are big shifts coming in your star sign Aquarius, continuing on from events in 2020. Who you are and what you represent could have a major impact on your next steps and the choices you make.

Listen out for news or opportunities on or around the 18th when lucky Jupiter encounters Mercury in your star sign. Jupiter represents expansion and growth and this may be about your role within society.

Plus, the Full Moon on the 5th could prove decisive for a relationship or your next steps as the Moon is in your opposite star sign Leo. The light of the moon illuminates and brings clarity.

Relationships are foreground during the Full Moon. Yet this month, the focus is strongly on you and your needs. Notice who ‘shines bright’ in your life but don’t make it all about them.

During the Full Moon, your co-ruler Uranus is in feisty mood and squares up to the Sun and Moon. Uranus is currently in earth sign Taurus at the base of your horoscope, representing your home and family, your past and where you come from.

This combination is rebellious and you might be ready to make a definitive split from the past. Or, perhaps you’re leaving your current home or family situation.

Alternatively, you may have a lot to rebel against or fight for. If this is true for you, engage your head and your heart during the Full Moon phase. Keep your eyes firmly fixed on your future goals and bring your noble Aquarius characteristics to the fore.

The Sun/Saturn conjunction in Aquarius is part of the picture and falls on the 16th. What you leave behind early in the month could help you recognise where commitment is required or what you’re standing for.

If you’re typical of your star sign, you care about others and where the world is heading. Or, perhaps you have your own personal nirvana you’re searching for. Either way, it feels like a pivotal time.

Pisces Season

Pisces rules your personal money sector and there’s a lot of activity here throughout February. The planet of relating Venus is in Pisces until the 20th and the Sun is here from the 18th. This is a practical sector of your horoscope but it’s not about being logical or practical where money’s concerned.

Certainly, you’re wise to keep close tabs on your money but trust your intuition and listen out for hunches and coincidences. Practise the law of attraction and believe that what you give, you receive in return. Aim to be in flow with money, whatever that means for you personally.

On the 15th, there’s a gorgeous conjunction between Venus and Neptune in Pisces, two planets with a lot in common. This combination feels creative and is great for using your imagination and coming up with money-making ideas. Feel your way forward and, at the same time, remain open-hearted and faithful.

Venus in Pisces is boundless and giving; it’s a compassionate, kind and caring influence. This would be a good time to raise money for charity or help out someone in need. Alternatively, if you’re the one who’s struggling financially, ask for help. Do what you can to keep the flow of money moving.

Another significant date is the 20th when there’s a New Moon in Pisces, a symbol of new beginnings. This would be an excellent date to launch a new financial initiative, to improve your income or earnings and be savvy with your cash.

Love & Passion

Also this month, passion planet Mars is stirring up excitement in your fellow air sign Gemini, ruling romance. There’s a thrill of the new about love and relationships. This may not take you down the tried and tested route to love. Mars is passionate and speedy and is linked to desire and strong urges.

Love may be on the agenda once the planet of love Venus enters fire sign Aries on the 20th. This is a strong and direct influence. If you’re keen on meeting someone new, take the initiative, ask someone out and go get what you want.

It’s not all about love, however, and passion could come in another shape or form. Aim to improve your knowledge and brainstorm your ideas. Talking to other people could be mind-blowingly exciting for more than one reason in the last ten days of the month.

Scorpio Horoscope February 2023

Scorpio horoscope, boat at sunset

Communication planet Mercury is completing its journey through Capricorn. This is where Mercury was retrograde, i.e. on go slow last month. On the 10th, there’s a Mercury-Pluto conjunction, the day before Mercury leaves Capricorn on the 11th.

This is powerful for you as Pluto is your co-ruler and Capricorn is your communication sector. Therefore, it’s worth asking what conversation needs to happen. You might issue an ultimatum or be taking on a powerful role.

There’s something final about this as next month Pluto leaves Capricorn. Consider whether you’re ready to let go of something that’s symbolic of Pluto, i.e. a course of therapy, a position of power, past regrets, a teaching role.

Mars Gemini

Also, your ruling planet Mars has been retrograde and turned direct last month on January 18th. However, Mars got stalled and has been taking time to pick up the pace. This happens in February.

Mars is currently in air sign Gemini, the star sign of communication, backing up the Mercury-Pluto theme. Gemini rules an intriguing part of your horoscopes that’s closely linked to your star sign Scorpio. This is about the areas of life that are difficult to reach; inner communication, reading between the lines, looking beneath the surface.

Mars here can feel intense and full on. Yet, you’re not usually someone who shies away from transformation. Delve deep into your psyche and talk about what you’re experiencing. Mars in Gemini is the perfect talking cure.

Dare to go wherever other people fear to tread and make this your motto while Mars remains in Gemini until the end of March. If you work as a therapist or have psychic abilities, your intuition and instincts could be particularly acute.

Money and work are key factors this month and there’s a sense of progress. Big planet Jupiter is flying high in Aries and your work sector. Plus, your ruler Mars lights up your joint finance sector in Gemini.

You may be negotiating money matters or be looking at ways to earn or invest more. The 18th & 22nd could prove dynamic in helping you move forward.

Aquarius Themes

The Sun is in Aquarius, the star sign of the moment, up until the 18th. And, talk planet Mercury moves here on the 11th. Aquarius is linked to your home and family, your past and where you come from.

The Full Moon on the 5th is a stand-out date to make a clear decision about your foundations and your future path. The Full Moon cuts across the Leo/Aquarius axis of the zodiac and the base and peak of your horoscope.

This is about the work/life balance and setting new structures in place and making new plans that you can build on moving forward. It’s a positive date to make a decision about your career and future path, your home and past.

There is a proviso, however, because erratic Uranus is square the Sun and Moon from Taurus and your relationship sector. Therefore, someone else could have other ideas or plans. Be wary of the person who might take umbrage to what you’re trying to do.

It’s not wise to put another person’s needs before your own. Engage your head as well as your heart during the Full Moon phase.

There’s another powerful planetary aspect which could prove significant here. The Sun & Saturn align in Aquarius on the 16th. This combination requires commitment, resilience or discipline. You may be taking on a caring role or have extra responsibilities around your home or family.

Pisces Season

There’s another influence that’s strong throughout February, the star sign Pisces. Pisces is a fellow water sign and Venus is here until the 20th. Plus, the Sun enters Pisces on the 18th. This is gorgeous for wishing on a star, dreaming and immersing yourself in fantasy.

As a water sign, you know how to engage deeply with inspiration and ideas and activities that feed your soul. In fact, this is imperative, as everyday life won’t always cut it. You need something more to sustain you on a deeper level; an activity, dream or personal quest that allows your spirit to soar.

Pisces rules one of the best sectors of your horoscope ruling your creative talents, your children and the things in life you ‘give birth to’. Therefore, this is an ideal month to focus on your self-expression and ensure that play and creativity are foreground. Encourage your inner artist or expand your ideas through visualisation.

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.

Something magical could be born this month, especially on or around the New Moon in Pisces on the 20th. New Moons are a symbol of new beginnings and this New Moon falls a few days after a gorgeous Venus-Neptune conjunction in Pisces on the 15th.

If you’re looking for love, start your search straightaway and know that things peak for you mid-month. Pisces rules romance, love affairs and new love in your horoscope.

Libra Horoscope February 2023

Libra horoscope, boat at sunset

As you move into February, consider what’s coming to an end before you move ahead. Talk planet Mercury was retrograde in Capricorn and your home and family sector last month. This month, Mercury leaves Capricorn on the 11th but, before doing so, there’s a powerful Mercury-Pluto conjunction on the 10th.

Pluto’s nature is final and you may have a sense that it’s time to close a door on the past and move on. You may be ready to have a deep or challenging conversation. Or, perhaps you’re dealing with a life-or-death situation and have to dig deep to find your inner resolve.

If you’re a typical Libra, you can steer clear of confrontation or the dark side of life. Yet, it may be pertinent to finish what you started before leaping into anything new.

Aquarius Themes

On the 11th, communication planet Mercury moves into your fellow air sign Aquarius where it joins the Sun. The Sun is moving through Aquarius until the 18th and this is an ideal time to embrace all that’s good in your life. This might start with adopting a positive attitude, depending on how the Mercury-Pluto conjunction plays out for you.

Aquarius rules all the good things in your life like romance, children & pregnancy, creativity, entertainment, self-expression and fun. When planets are in Aquarius, this urges you to do more of what you love and prioritise play over work.

Plus, there’s a glorious celebratory Full Moon in playful Leo on the 5th. This cuts across the Leo/Aquarius axis of the zodiac and the most social sectors of your horoscope. It would be an ideal date for a party or celebration.

The only proviso is to watch how much money you spend as unpredictable Uranus is square both the Sun & the Moon. Uranus is currently in earth sign Taurus and one of the money sectors of your horoscope.

This can flag up unexpected expenses and it’s not a good time to take a risk financially. Rein in your spending on or around the Full Moon, but don’t let that stop you enjoying yourself.

Pisces Season

Your planet Venus is exalted in Pisces, the star sign which rules your work and lifestyle, your routine and your health. Venus is here until the 20th and the Sun joins Venus in Pisces on the 18th.

Even though planets in Aquarius are encouraging you to play, Pisces’ activity favours a healthy work/life balance. When you turn your attention towards your lifestyle and health, the rewards could be more than worth it.

At the very least, you can start to sort things out in these key areas, whether you get back on track with a healthy routine or you make the right connections at work.

It may take a while before you feel completely settled but know that you’re moving in the right direction. Trust and have faith that things will work out for the best. Sometimes, you have to surrender to life as it is and feel your way through.

Notice your emotional response to whatever you’re doing as Pisces is one of the water signs. This is a time to embrace what feels right, rather than what you think is right, especially regarding your work and health.

The stand-out date could be the 20th, the day of the New Moon in Pisces, a symbol of new beginnings. Plus, your planet Venus makes a conjunction with Neptune, Pisces’ co-ruler on the 15th. This whole combination feels magical and it’s an ideal time to dream and believe anything’s possible.

Love & Connections

Finally, if you’re looking for love, this is potentially a go-for-it period. This is because big planet Jupiter remains in your opposite star sign Aries until mid-May. Plus, Aquarius is your romance sector and there’s a lovely Mercury-Jupiter alliance on the 18th, ideal for a date or flirtatious encounter.

Your ruling planet Venus enters Aries and your relationship sector on the 20th and this combination is red-hot. A direct approach is favoured when it comes to relationships.

Don’t wait for someone else to proposition you. Be forthcoming and turn on the charm. Venus in Aries is ideal for making new connections and strengthening partnerships that are already in place.

Plus, your partner planet Mars is now moving forward in another air sign Gemini. This lights up your travel and study sectors, so let your imagination run wild and line up some new experiences. The more you engage actively with life, the better.

There is a proviso, however, as your ruling planet Venus is said to be weakened in Aries. You’re the relating star sign and Aries is about the individual.

Once Venus is in Aries, you may want to put yourself first, especially if you’re lacking balance in a close relationship. Or, perhaps it’s important to assert yourself around other people.

One of your Libra life lessons is learning to say no as you’re a people pleaser by nature. Therefore, consider the balance of power in your one-to-one’s. If it’s out, consider what can you do to regain equilibrium.

Mars’ Power

Your ruling planet Mars turned direct in Gemini, the star sign of communication, on January 12th after ten weeks retrograde. Since then, the planet of action has been stalled at the same place in the zodiac and only picks up pace this month.

Therefore, this is an ideal time to find solutions to problems, to implement your ideas and work things out. Anything that got tangled or messy while Mars was on go slow, here’s your opportunity to get things moving.

You might have more meetings and get-togethers this month. You could benefit from playing a role within your community, making new friends and contacts. Ensure networking and socialising are high on your list of priorities.

Mars in Gemini is a lively combination that flags up the importance of people power. Get on the right side of people who matter and you can make swift progress.

It would be a good month to go back to school, learn a language or sign up for a course. You might pass a test or sit an important exam.

At the same time, communication planet Mercury is completing its journey through Capricorn and your career and future sector. Mercury makes a definitive conjunction with power planet Pluto on the 10th and leaves Capricorn on the 11th.

Whatever happens under Pluto’s gaze tends to be final. Therefore, it’s worth asking whether one path is coming to an end. Where are you ready to close a door on the past?

There may be times this month when you’re questioning what you’re doing, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The more you engage actively with your personal goals, the more you may discover insights and understanding that help you moving forwards. Keep hold of a sense of purpose or find one if it’s lacking.

Aquarius Themes

Aquarius is the star sign of the moment and this is where you have the Sun up until the 18th. Plus, talk planet Mercury enters Aquarius on the 11th.

Aquarius rules your friends and groups, your place within society, your role within politics or social responsibilities. Next month, March 2023, will bring a significant shift in these key areas of your life.

You may get a sense of what that’s going to be on the 16th when there’s a Sun-Saturn conjunction in Aquarius. Here too, you may be ready to move on. Alternatively, you’re ready to make a commitment to a group or social cause.

Aquarius is the star sign linked to technology and all things modern. Embrace the future and be around people who inspire you and can help you moving forward. The 18th & 22nd could be social and fun.

You may be celebrating with friends during the Full Moon on the 5th. Or, perhaps you decide to set up an online group or social media page and reach out and make new connections.

It is a lively Full Moon, however, as the Sun and Moon are square to unpredictable Uranus, the planet of change and linked to the individual. You may choose to stand up for other people during the Full Moon phase. Or, take on an activist or rebel role.

The one area of to be wary of is money as Uranus is in Taurus and your personal money sector. Check that a social event or group activity isn’t going to cost you the earth. Rein in your impulsive nature during the Full Moon phase.

Your star sign is renowned for being direct, honest and forthright, for taking action and making things happen. Consider how you want to focus and channel your time and energy moving forward.

Quiet Time

Pisces is the last star sign of the zodiac and rules the most hidden sector of your horoscope. You can’t do everything straightaway or overnight when planets are in Pisces, which is different for you being a spontaneous, impulsive fire sign. Instead, you have to prioritise what’s urgent or important. What do you need to let go of before you can start something new?

The Sun enters Pisces on the 18th. This is the time to go with the flow, do what feels right and trust your intuition. It’s a contemplative period in the year for you, a time when you’re wise to take stock and complete old projects before you begin anything new.

Pisces rules your inner world and the second half of the month would be ideal for going on retreat or tapping into your subconscious. Make the most of the New Moon in Pisces on the 20th, a symbol of new beginnings.

This is potentially a fertile time for dreams and imagination and seeking a creative or spiritual source. Use this deep emotional energy to dive into ideas, dreams and visions. Use poetry, music, art or nature to inspire you. Find time to unplug, rest and restore your energy.

You may be caring for someone close or prioritising self-care and both are valuable. Either way, this is about nurturing self and others, easing your way forward and going with the flow. When the Pisces influence kicks in, take the pace slow.

Love Vibes

Finally, love is under the cosmic spotlight. Firstly, the planet of love Venus is in romantic Pisces up until the 20th. The 15th could be a stand-out date for love and sentiment when Venus aligns with Neptune, Pisces’ co-ruler.

Yet, Venus is hidden away in Pisces and this can flag up a theme of unrequited love or love for the divine, love with a capital L.

Things could get interesting once Venus enters your star sign Aries on the 20th. You’re not shy if you’re a typical Sun Aries. Instead, you’re impulsive and daring. Venus entering your star sign could kick-start your love life into action and fast.

This is the start of a positive period in the year for you when there’s going to be a lot of emphasis on your star sign. The period from now up until mid-May promises to deliver. All you need to decide is where you’re heading and why.

USA Pluto Return 2/22/22


“Hmm, Pluto hasn’t been discovered yet but when it is, someone is going to realize the 2020s in America is going to be a bitch and a half.  Okay let’s sign this muther.”


USA & Pluto 



I have been discussing the USA Pluto return for a couple of years.   As we know there are three dates in 2022 where Pluto will be exactly where it was on July 4, 1776, at the signing of the Declaration of Independence.   Feb 22, July 11, and December 28.   As I mentioned last month, because Pluto’s orbit is a bit wonky there is some debate in astrological circles about the dates being in 2022 or instead 2024.  But in truth no one is getting that worked up because, well, because it is Pluto.   Pluto has a long punch.  The bottom line is that Pluto will be grinding it out in the USA for the next couple years no matter what date is exact, and it already started years ago when Pluto moved into Cap in 2008.  



I would like to point out that as we approach the first date of 2/22/22 something happened last week that seemed perfectly Pluto return.  Pluto rules plumbing.  Pluto speaks to fresh water coming in and the pipes that remove waste.   Last week there were reports that the former president flushed documents down the toilet.    Sometimes astrology is just so on the nose.   


Given the USA influence in the world (either pluses or minuses) it does not really matter if you are or not an American, we are all in this profound experience together.     Let’s all take a breath and watch this space and as always proceed with love.
