Happy February, star babies, and congrats on surviving the first month of 2022. Welcome to February, the month of chilly weather, warm love, and Valentine's Day, plus whatever feelings — the good, the bad, and the aloof — that it may bring.

We begin with a new moon in detached Aquarius on Tuesday, February 1. As a reminder, dark new moons are a time for new beginnings, so use this night to set intentions for the month ahead. As this lunation falls in humanitarian Aquarius, you may feel drawn to issue bigger than yourself, such as joining a grassroots organization fighting climate change or supporting Black-owned businesses.

On this same date, Tuesday, February 1, Juno, a planetary body known as “the asteroid of marriage,” enters aloof Aquarius. For some, this may leave love feeling a bit icy and unemotional. However, for others (especially the water signs), applying more logic to your relationship approach can be healthy, and your relationships will benefit from this cosmic influence. Communicating within your long-term commitments, whether with lovers or friends, becomes more manageable when messenger Mercury ends its retrograde and goes direct in Capricorn on Thursday, February 3.

The chatty planet Mercury re-enters rational Aquarius on Monday, February 14, exactly on Valentine's Day. While Aquarius isn't the most romantic placement for Mercury, this will help you stick to the facts, making it easier not to get the bombardment of cupid-themed social media posts get to you. And, if you are happy in love, you'll be able to express your feelings to one another directly. Cheers for communication. But save some of your energy — as sexy as Valentine's Day can be, a full moon in attention-loving Leo on Wednesday, February 16, leaves you ready for more pleasure, whether it's at the hands of your partner or favorite sex toy

When the sun enters sensitive Pisces on Friday, February 18, the detached air of Aquarius leaves us in favor of Pisces season activities, such as crying in fake eyelashes and masturbating in the bathtub. Not only does this time of year bring out your emotional side, but it's a highly creative season, so keep a pen nearby to jot down ideas as they come to you. Pisces is also a wise and psychic sign, so pay extra attention to messages in dreams. Spend the rest of the month devoting time to passion projects, allowing yourself to feel your feelings, and enjoying pillow talk. See you in March, and keep reading to see what's specifically in store for your sign.

February Horoscopes by Zodiac Sign

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Even when you say you don't care about Valentine's Day, you secretly do, dear ram. Make sure that your crush or partner knows that; they can't read your mind. Thanks to help from rational Aquarius and the communication Mercury, that should be no problem, though. February ends with a very erotic transit that lights your bedroom on fire, so let's hope you saved some energy after Valentine's Day, hot Aries. Read your full February horoscope here, Aries.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

When February begins, darling Taurus, thanks to big moves from Juno, the asteroid of marriage, you reflect on how much you appreciate stability in your love life. The only problem is that you don't always express your needs to others. However, when a rare cosmic event occurs later in the month, in conjunction with the start of emotional Pisces season, you're successfully able to share your feelings (so keep the tissues handy). Read your full February horoscope here, Taurus.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Once again, heartbreaker Gemini, the stars are asking you not to lead anyone on this month, especially around Valentine's Day. However, while the first half of the month sees you trying to please friends and lovers, the second half of February gives you a big, warm, cosmic hug and brings welcome intimacy into all of your relationships. Just double-down on sleep and self-care if anxiety flares up once sensitive Pisces season begins. Read your full February horoscope here, Gemini.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Cancer, you're full of artistic talents, even if you don't always show them off. So when a bright full moon brings abundance your way mid-month, thanks to your creative efforts, say yes to the check. And, as for romance and Valentine's Day, despite what an exceptional caretaker you are, why don't you let someone else do the work this year. Read your full February horoscope here, Cancer.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

February kicks off with a new moon that asks you to reflect on boundaries, Leo. Are you holding your own and respecting others? At the risk of calling a majestic lion such as yourself out again, February, and cosmic events which occur precisely on Valentine's Day, ask you to put aside short-term pleasure for the sake of the long game. That means putting more emotional effort into your current relationships and spending less time creeping on your ex. Read your full February horoscope here, Leo.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Don't worry about feeling selfish this month; the stars ask you to be. As the healer of the zodiac, you tend to focus on others, especially when holidays such as Valentine's Day take your attention. But you're also represented by the hermit card in tarot. It would help if you stepped into your cave once in a while for your mental health. When Mercury squares (a high tension aspect between two planets) the eccentric planet Uranus later in the month, you may find yourself feeling anxious. So, express your needs to others and sleep in as much as you want. Read your full February horoscope here, Virgo.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Great news, Libra: Pleasure is a massive theme for you this month, so whether it's given by your favorite sex toy or your favorite person, expect orgasms galore. But regardless of your relationship status, you need to make alone time this month. Of course, as the sign of partnerships and balance, you always want to connect with others. But to do so, Libra, you need to get in touch with your desires. Read your full February horoscope here, Libra.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Valentine's Day is a special day for Scorpios because even though it's during Aquarius season, anyone conceived during this time (yes, that includes you) turns out to be a Scorpio. Lean into the rational influence of air sign Aquarius this month, Scorpio, because you tend to get carried away with your emotions. During February, both in love and money, cooler heads prevail. Read your full February horoscope here, Scorpio.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

February asks you to grab your bow and arrow, archer because you're ready for battle. This could mean ending a dead-end relationship or accepting a proposal in a healthy one, but either way, expect a change or two. Either way, it's for the best because the stars sprinkle your love life with fairy dust just in time for Valentine's Day. However, there is one catch: You can't dominate the conversation, Sag. Instead, February asks you to listen. Read your full February horoscope here, Sagittarius.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

You usually think with your head more than your heart, Capricorn, but February sees you tapping into your emotional side, and don't worry, it's a good thing. The first half of the month is so buzzy with romance that you may want to catch up on sleep on Valentine's Day. And, despite your penchant for science, open your mind to psychic messages in dreams during Pisces season later in the month, as they're coming your way. Read your full February horoscope here, Capricorn.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

It's still your season for the first half of the month, Aquarius, including during Valentine's Day. But, even if you find the holiday a corny commodification of love, your romantic side comes out thanks to the communication Mercury entering your sign, encouraging you to express your feelings. Plus, whether it's a raise of a proposal, you're in for an abundant surprise mid-month. Read your full February horoscope here, Aquarius.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

While the early days of February might leave you feeling slightly lonely, your happiness soars mid-month when you reconnect with friends, perhaps over Valentine's Day. So not only does the second half of February bring the start of your season, Pisces, but prosperous news for your career is on the way. Read your full February horoscope here, Pisces.
