These February self-care horoscopes for each of the 12 zodiac signs are based on the upcoming astrological transits, (the movement of the planets around the sky), and some of the general themes that are going to be activated for you in the coming month.
As a witch, I’ll be sharing some predictions, insight, and inspiration on how you can most effectively nurture yourself and practice self-care this month based on the cosmos.
I highly recommend that you generate your birth chart at www.astro.com or www.astro-charts.com and read the horoscope for your rising sign but if you only know your sun sign, you can read for sun signs too or instead.
Please note that in order to generate a chart with an accurate rising sign, you will need your exact birth time, as even a few minutes can actually make a difference.
February 2023 Astrological Transits
- Mercury enters Aquarius (February 11): Mercury spent over two months in Capricorn, a very lengthy transit for this usually quick-moving planet. As Mercury ends its retrograde and slow transition out of Capricorn, and then finally moves into Aquarius in early February, we’ll be receiving lightning bolts of inspiration and forward momentum. You’ll want to be in conversation with your community and about all the quirky, weird topics you’re fascinated by.
- New Moon in Pisces (February 20): Aquarius season ends and Pisces season begins on February 18 when the sun moves into Pisces, followed closely by the new moon in Pisces. This is the last new moon in the zodiac before we start a new astrological year. This new moon is a paradox of beginnings and endings, of fresh starts and culmination. Take this opportunity to reflect back on the full astrological year we’ve just experienced and what you’ve transcended or moved through in that time.
- Venus enters Aries (February 20): Venus enters the first sign of the zodiac in late February, the love goddess in the realm of Mars, the god of war. This is a contentious but inspiring transit that invites us to learn to balance the ways that we take action to create everything we desire… and the ways we actually sit back and receive those desires in abundance.
