Aquarius is the social scientist of the Zodiac, who is committed to sacrificing individual needs for the sake of the collective good. With that in mind, the energy of this month will be focused on the ways technology and data can be used to improve the lives of the many, not just the few. As the most humanitarian sign of the Zodiac, Aquarius inspires us to think of our moral responsibility to the environment and the world at large.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Happy February Libra! It’s sure to be a creative time for you this month, but in a different way than you’re used to. Mercury will be retrograding through your 5th of creativity and sexuality until February 20th. What does this mean? It’s time to get creative when you feel like you’re in a funk! This could be an inspirational funk or a sexual funk. Either way, the retrograde will challenge you to review the places where you feel stuck and highlight blocks to your expression of your inner child.
As Mercury will be in Aquarius, be scientific in your approach at identifying these blocks. What time of day do you feel less creative? What behaviors do you and your partner engage in that might be impeding your sexual creativity? On the flip side, notice the instances when you feel flow in your creative and sexual pursuits. Don’t get disheartened if you’re not feeling like your social, playful self this month. Every creative genius has to have these moments, so that when you are inspired, you remember to feel grateful too.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Family will be the theme of your month Scorpio, with Mercury retrograding through your house of home, ancestry and foundations for most of the month. It’s time to review your familial dynamics and recalibrate the patterns that no longer serve your best self. What does this mean in real terms? It’s time to get real about the behaviors you are undertaking that are keeping you from having healthy and happy relationships with your family.
It might also be time to review your family history, as in, the narratives you’ve been telling yourself about you in your family dynamic. Be honest with yourself about what you want, whether that be better relations or to cut ties altogether. The relationships with father figures in your life specifically might come into focus and the ways in which you do or do not get along with authority figures.
Scorpio AirBrush Feature for February:
Recalibrating can feel like a day dream. Try the Daydream Filter Pack and look back on nostalgic moments in order to get through the troubles at hand.
Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21)
Relationships with siblings will be focus this month, Sagittarius, with Mercury retrograding through your 3rd house of communication, siblings and neighbors. If you don’t have siblings then this could manifest as miscommunications with neighbors or people you deal with in your daily life.
Sometimes with Mercury reversing through this sector of your chart this can express as new or troubling information coming to light or information about yourself being passed around unfairly. No one likes to be the subject of gossip. The takeaway here is to develop a thick skin and keep working on staying true to yourself no matter what comes. Don’t worry Sagittarius, the true blue people in your life will have your back. And, if they don’t, it’s just a helpful indicator that it’s time to cut them loose.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Money will be on your mind this month Capricorn, with Mercury retrograding through your 2nd house of resources and money-making this month. You will be challenged to uplevel your finances this month. This might entail getting more organized with your finances or letting go of unnecessarily high expectations when it comes to your money management.
You might experience miscommunications or delays when it comes to your finances. Chock these mishaps up to this main takeaway: money isn’t everything. Take the lessons you need to remember that the real value in life comes from other more soulful realms. To save yourself a headache, double check all financial statements and make sure to automate payments and enroll in paperless statements to avoid late payments and fees.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Happy birthday Aquarius! This month, all eyes will be on YOU! It’s your time to shine and as one of the most morally responsible and rational signs in the Zodiac that means it’s time to impart your wisdom about the collective good to the world. With so many planets in Aquarius this month, the world is truly on your energetic level finally, dear Aquarius! It might feel like people are coming to you for your opinion and advice to align with this new age.
Don’t be shy, share your thoughts! It’s truly your time to be a leader and inspiration to those around you. With Mercury retrograding through your 1st house of self, take an objective look at the way you’re asserting yourself in this new Aquarian Age. Are you humbly giving advice when asked? Or are you over asserting ideas in an unsolicited capacity? Let others come to you and remember, the convincing way to be is open of accepting of whatever and whoever is (or is not) open to your ideas.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
It’s time for some soul searching Pisces, with Mercury retrograding through your 12th house of spirituality and self undoing this month, dear Pisces. What does that mean exactly? Well, it’s energy you’re no stranger to. That is, the need to dive deep to investigate your inner demons and the ways in which your view of yourself might be unclear. Old and outmoded behaviors might arise this month.
Also, people from your past who you thought you’d grown out of. Turn to spiritual healing this month when you need support. This includes meditation, yoga and any other ways to ground down and remember the nourishment of your body and the earth. With so many planets in the 12th house, any secret suffering will surely be illuminated. Turn to your trusted friends and family when you need support and remember: just keep swimming.
