February may be the shortest month, but it will be an astrologically potent one as all of the signs lean into rebellious energy in the air! This February 2023 horoscope we’re all going punk. Thanks to a strong Uranian energy, this overall vibe of kicking a** and taking names will build through February and reach its peak at the new moon in Pisces on the 20th, says Donna Page, a professional astrologer with a graduate degree in counseling psychology based in Atlanta.
With Uranus, expect the unexpected, says Page. “Change is on the horizon,” she explains. “And sometimes, change can come whether we want it or not.” But one change you’ll def want? All the planet retrogrades you’ve been dealing with over the last month are OVER! So, feel free to start having all those conversations you’ve been putting off and make those career moves you’ve been ruminating on.
Besides change, the full moon in Leo is on the horizon. Keep an eye on the night sky on the 5th, when this moon will emphasize the collective desire to follow our hearts and bring out our inner lions and lionesses. Venus, the planet that rules over love, starts the month in dreamy, romantic Pisces and stays there until the 20th. This creates a pretty ideal energetic forecast for Valentine’s Day, says Page. It’s like we all have rose-colored (and perhaps heart-shaped?) glasses on for the first three weeks of the month. That dreamy energy only continues with Pisces season beginning on the 18th and the new moon in Pisces happening on the 20th, according to Page.
What does that mean for you? Page shares her February 2023 horoscope predictions for each zodiac sign:
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
If you’re feeling a little extra ~romantic~ at the beginning of the month, it may be more than just the usual deluge of Valentine’s Day reminders. The full moon, which is in fellow fire sign Leo this month, is lighting up your house of romance. And, with Venus (the planet that rules over love) in sweet, dreamy Pisces—it couldn’t come at a better time! In non-astrological speak, this is a great time to get out there and mix it up with someone you’ve had your eye on. Or, if you’d like privacy please, get away and really be intimate—whether that’s with a new lover, your long-term partner, or yourself. Rent that cabin or beach house, and escape from it all for a bit.
Work-wise, the energy is strong for you this month, and you will get more clarity about your career desires. And when the sun moves into Pisces on the 18th, your intuition around your future goals will only be heightened. You end the month on a positive note when Venus moves into your sign on the 20th, so definitely expect fun, flirty vibes for post-Valentine’s Day!
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Work is challenging right now, Taurus, and it’s okay if you’re feeling the pressure. It’s only natural! But make sure when you come home at the end of the day, you carve out time for rest and restoration. Luckily, this is one of your favorite things—so light the candles, break out your comfiest blanket, and truly spend time taking care of yourself. You want to be prepared for all of the opportunities flowing your way.
The full moon on the 5th is in your house of home and family, so make plans to be with the people you feel most comfortable around during this time. Invite your BFF over for a girl’s night in, or pop over to your favorite restaurant for drinks and appetizers. You deserve to feel the love in your social life, especially when work is so hard!
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Feeling the itch to fill up your social calendar this month, Gem? This makes sense because the full moon, which is in heart-centered Leo, highlights the part of your chart that deals with travel and communicating. Get out and do whatever it is that you love—whether it’s checking in at the hottest nightclub or the best book bclub.
When Venus, the planet that rules over love lives, moves into Aries on the 20th, in conjunction with the new moon in Pisces and the start of Pisces season, there is a strong energy around your career. You may be weighing whether or not what you’re doing is enough to sustain your creative streak. And if not, it may be time to make your move. Your social charms will also work in your favor here as you network and make new friends all over the place. You never know who has the perfect opportunity for you!
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
You are always in the mood for romance, but you are feeling the feels extra this month, Cancer! Besides your usual fantasizing, you’re also seeing the balance of your life a bit clearer than usual. Do you feel like you’re being honored and acknowledged in your relationships and partnerships? If not, it’s time to take action to change that.
When the new moon in Pisces and the start of Pisces season hit toward the end of February, you’re feeling very action-oriented and career driven. If there are opportunities for learning through a new course online or a partnership at work, take them. It is possible you’ll be presented with something exciting—be it a promotion, work trip, or some other acknowledgment of your hard work. Don’t shy away from it; you deserve it!
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
It’s your full moon month, Leo, a.k.a. a perfect opportunity to see if you’re feeling aligned in your life. Do you feel like you are doing things every day that make you happy? If not, think of ways—both small and large—that you can follow your heart on a regular basis. This can be something as small as treating yourself to your favorite lavender latte on the way to work or something more substantial, like taking those art classes you’ve been wanting to sign up for. Whatever it is—you deserve to be your full Leo self and follow your passions!
At the end of the month, the planets align for you to have a very deep sensual connection, so keep an eye on that. You are likely feeling super intuitive as Pisces season begins on the 18th, so your B.S. detector is working overtime. Also worth noting: You may be surprised by who you are drawn to during this time.
Later, when Venus enters fellow fire sign Aries on the 20th, you desperately crave some solo time. So dive into your yoga classes, meditation rituals, or whatever it is that recharges you!
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
You may feel a bit like retreating at the beginning of this month, Virgo. The full moon in Leo on the 5th highlights the part of your chart that deals with rejuvenating and escaping from the world, so buy the plane ticket, or get in your car and blast some Fleetwood Mac and “go your own way.”
You’ll be glad you took the time to recharge at the end of February when your career is being highlighted. Mars, a planet associated with action and passion, has been in retrograde in your work house since October, and now that it’s gone direct, you are finally free to explore everything you’ve been overanalyzing. If you want to create a new offer or explore a new passion, go for it. You’re halfway through your solar return this month as well, so things are really moving for you, Virgo.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
The first part of the month is all about playtime for you, Libra. Hit up the group chat because the full moon in Leo on the 5th highlights your house of friendships. Make plans to check out that arcade bar or dance class you’ve been wanting to try. Your positive vibes bring out the best in everyone around you, so enjoy the sweet energy in the air!
By the 20th, when the sun and new moon are in Pisces, the focus shifts a bit back to work. Make sure you catch up on those emails you missed while you were out with the girls earlier in the month. With dreamy Pisces energy in the air, you may consider whether this is the right job for you. Write these thoughts down, and lean into the feelings, but the time for action in this area is not quite yet, Libra.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
The spotlight is on you at the beginning of the month, Scorpio, as the full moon in Leo on the 5th highlights a part of your chart that deals with being known in the world. So whether you’re trying to be a leader in the office or are working to be on the cover of Women’s Health, it is your time to shine!
With Venus, the planet of love, in fellow water sign Pisces this month, you feel extra passionate. This energy applies to both your relationships and your work.
You’ve been feeling a momentum growing with your career, which only continues as you enter Pisces season on the 18th and with the Pisces new moon on the 20th. Your creativity is at an all-time high, so make sure to write down all of your great ideas as they come to you this month. They’ll definitely come in handy later.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
You may find yourself feeling a little restless this month, Sag. The full moon in fellow fire sign Leo on the 5th is a powerful one that brings out your adventurous side. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself booking a one-way trip to a new city or spending a weekend in a new town by yourself. You meet friends wherever you go, and it’ll do ya good to remind yourself of this during this time.
You tend to be a bit impatient, and this month, you feel that energy in your career. Your eye is on what’s next, instead of what is in front of you. While your usual philosophizing and plotting out the future is useful, don’t lose sight of the here and now.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
This month highlights your intimate side and your ability to communicate, Capricorn. The full moon on the 5th brings out a part of your chart that deals with emotional intimacy and deep connections. This can be a very sensual energy, so definitely get down with your bad self for all the V-Day fun! If you are in a relationship or a situationship, this is a great month to speak your mind and maybe even DTR…
This communicative side of you will also appear at work, and just in time for some possible negotiations. Whether you’ve been wanting to increase your price, or change your title, the time to talk about it is now. You are feeling clearer than ever. Embrace it!
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
We’re right in the middle of Aquarius season, so continue celebrating, water-bearing friends! The full moon on the 5th highlights friendships and being around others. Whether you’re a February or a January Aquarius, take time to do what you love and be around those who care about you. Surround yourself with good vibes and people, and you can never go wrong.
Like Ariana Grande once said, “I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it,” and that is how you are feeling as you enter Pisces season on the 18th. But before you buy all of your friends matching Tiffany’s bracelets, be smart about your splurging. Doing something special is encouraged, but overspending is not!
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Your season is coming, Pisces. But the month starts out on a more regimented note, with the full moon in Leo on the 5th. The planets are aligning to highlight your daily routine and encourage you to get sh*t done before your birthday comes up. Sometimes ,you’ve got to work hard to play hard, and that time is now. But just because you’re working hard doesn’t mean you can’t have fun, too. Invite a friend to come work with you at the coffee shop, or help you put together your bookshelf. Plus, you can start talking about bday plans while you work!
With Venus in your sign for the first 20 days of February, you feel more attractive and confident than ever. Use this boost of self-love to propel your love life and your career forward. When Venus, the planet that rules over love, moves from your sign to fiery Aries, you’ll be ready to go after what you want in all areas!
