February 2024 Monthly Overview

I center my attention on the astrological energy shifts unfolding in February 2024. My first focus lies in understanding the pivotal moments when planets change signs, as this can greatly affect their optimal functioning.

Moving forward, I look into the influence of New and Full Moons, along with any eclipses that might manifest during this month. These celestial events can have a significant impact on our lives and emotions.

Additionally, I examine the retrogrades of the planets, which signal a decrease in energy and call for a reevaluation of past situations associated with those specific planets. It’s a time to reflect and gain insights from the past.

Lastly, I will highlight some key astrological moments that will shape the month, offering valuable insights into the prevailing energies and their potential impact on our lives.

Here are the main planetary energy shifts and changes that will be in effect during February 2024.


This month, four planets change signs.

The Sun: Pisces Season

In the third week of the month the Sun leaves Aquarius and enters Pisces. This is known as Pisces season even though it only lasts around thirty days. Where the Sun travels Mercury and Venus are not far behind which brings a lot of planetary energy to the sign.

For Aquarians

On the 5th, Mercury moves into Aquarius. Mercury is peregrine in the fixed air sign of the Water Bearer which means it can express its enery moderately for almost everyone. If you are an Aquarian then at some point Mercury will stimulate your natal Sun to bring you some good news and fresh contacts into your life.

For Pisces

Fortunately, at the end of the month on the 23rd, Mercury slips quietly into Pisces. Mercury is in detriment in the mutable water sign of the which means it can express its bounty well for almost everyone. If you are a Pisces then at some point Mercury will stimulate your natal Sun to bring you some personal grace and favor into your life.


On February 16th, Venus the ruler of Taurus and Libra, enters Aquarius. Venus is not particularly comfortable in the fixed air sign and may struggle to express herself well here.

For Aquarians

If you are an Aquarian, then Venus will conjoin your Sun at some time either this month or next. Venus is known as the lesser benefic and she is typically a good thing. Money and love are Venus’ area of influence.


On February 13th, Mars enters Aquarius to energize this sign. You may desire to lead your pack but there is the energy of being a part of something bigger than yourself. Be aware of pushing your agenda onto others who perhaps will not appreciate the intrusion. Take a breath before plunging in and choose your battles strategically now.


Full Moon

The Full Moon occurs in at 5°23′ Virgo on February 24th.

For Virgo

Now you can explore your feelings clearly, if briefly. Always pay attention to your gut reactions at the Full Moon as they are your true responses coming out.

New Moon

On February 9th, the New Moon is at 20°41′ Aquarius.

New Moon Wishes

New Moons are always a time for setting personal intentions and making New Moon Wishes.
