February is a short month, but it still packs a punch when it comes to holidays, traditions and astrological anomalies. As we preview your February Horoscope, you’ll soon realize that this is a month that falls short of nothing, minus a couple of days.
The first noteworthy astrological event of February 2014 is Mercury’s retrograde in Pisces on the 6th. It will slip into Aquarius on the 12th where it will once again go direct on February 28 in Aquarius (entering Pisces again next month). The Mercury Retrograde will touch two houses this month, increasing our chances for misspending, mishaps and misunderstandings.
The Moon (Just One)
Valentine’s Day brings a Full Moon in sexy, yet stubborn, Leo. It’s a strong, willful Moon touching all types of relationships. Thankfully it will be at a good angle to ardent Mars in partnership-minded Libra. Speaking of the Moon, each month we usually get one Full Moon and one New Moon. In your horoscope for February, however, there is no New Moon. Not unlike those born under the sign of Aquarius, the Aquarian New Moon has a mind of its own and so it decided to skip the Mercury Retrograde climate of February since it might undermine its New Moon/new beginnings properties. Good thinking.
The last day of February is the best day of February when Mercury stations direct again and the Sun will be at a wonderful angle to lucky and resourceful Jupiter. It’s a good day to shine at work, and it’s also a good day to get out and flirt. Everyone’s vibe is heightened.
