Sagittarius (23 November – 21 December)
As February begins, you’re deep in the realm of the emotions and it feels like a sentimental start to the month. This is because key planets are gathering in the water sign Pisces down at the base of your horoscope.
Home & Family
Pisces rules your home and family, your past and where you come from. Communication planet, Mercury, is here from the 3rd. You might be on a hunt for news about your ancestry or have a strong sense of your roots and want to know more about your past and lineage.
Love is all around as the month begins and it’s wise to find support from loved ones and to be there for family and close connections in your life. The planet of relating, Venus, is in Pisces, a symbol of unconditional love, up until the 7th.
The watery world of Pisces continues to flow throughout February. On the 19th, the Sun begins its annual transit through Pisces and this month’s New Moon on the 23rd also falls at the base of your horoscope.
Plus, your ruling planet Jupiter in Capricorn and your money sector teams up with Neptune in Pisces and your home and family sector on the 20th, a key date to note. You’re in the flow of good fortune during this period and what you give, you receive in return.
The Jupiter-Neptune connection is a major planetary aspect that will play out through the year. You may have a dream to purchase your home or help out family. Or perhaps, you’re the one who’s gifted in some way linking these areas of your life.
As a Sagittarius and one of the fire signs, you can only immerse yourself in the emotional world for so long. You can become washed out or feel overwhelmed if you dive too deep into Pisces’ realm.
Fire Sign Activity
There’s other astrology taking place in February which suits you more. This is the fact that fire sign activity kicks in early in the month. Venus, the planet of relating, moves into Aries on the 7th, the sector of your horoscope which rules romance, children, entertainment and luck. This is about prioritising play and fun and being actively social. It’s also a great Venus transit for seeking love.
Also, action planet Mars is in your star sign Sagittarius until the 16th when your personal goals and aims will keep you busy. Mars is the planet of physical strength, drive and ambition, go-getting and dynamic. The more you get done in the first half of February, the better.
The other fire sign, Leo, is also in action during the Full Moon on the 9th. The Full Moon cuts across the Leo/Aquarius axis of the zodiac, great for travel and study and celebration. Make the most of this social Full Moon.
Yet, ultimately, the planets are pulling you back towards the past and this pull may go deeper after the 17th. This is when Mercury turns retrograde in Pisces and the planet of communication remains on go slow until March 10th. Mercury’s in retreat through the sector of your horoscope connected to your home and family, your foundations and where you come from.
This could coincide with a sentimental journey back towards your past. This flags up past connections, whether you’re the one who thinks of someone from your childhood or an ex or old friend gets back in touch with you. You might be drawing up your family tree or sorting out old photos. It would be a great time to do so.
This can be a deeply reflective period in your life when you want to retreat from the world and spend more time alone or at home. You might be experiencing strong emotions around your family, whether you’re saying goodbye or letting go.
The Mercury retrograde phase could feel disorienting or leave you feeling confused. It’s not the time to take things at face value and don’t believe everything you hear or read. Certain people won’t be telling the truth, whilst other people may be out of touch with reality. You may have to wait until the middle of next month to know what’s what.
Mercury is your partner planet so this doesn’t suggest a straightforward time for love and relationships either. If anything, you’re wise to let things be while there’s confusion in the air. Don’t push for answers and be aware that people close to you may behave oddly or need some time out.
The Uranus Factor
You might be thinking about what next or want to change things around to suit you better. The other planet active this month is Uranus in earth sign Taurus and the sector of your horoscope which rules your work and routine, your health and lifestyle.
If you’re a true Sagittarius, you don’t enjoy life when it’s routine or humdrum. This is potentially good news because Uranus livens things up. The key dates to note are the 5th, 21st, 22nd and 29th.
Also, when action planet Mars leaves your star sign Sagittarius on the 16th, it enters Capricorn and your personal money sector where it remains until late March. This area of your horoscope could get heated next month, so keep your ear to the ground to see if you can stay one step ahead of any potential conflict and keep your money safe.
Uranus often engages you with the new as it’s the planet linked to change. Check out your next steps but don’t leap in to anything major while Mercury’s retrograde. This is not the time to rock the boat at work. Instead, strengthen your foundations and play by the rules. Do the right thing, the sensible thing when it comes to work and money. You’ll have more options next month.
