Astrology Of February 2023 – The Calm Before The Storm

February 2023 is the silence before the storm. In March, Saturn enters Pisces, Pluto enters Aquarius, and Jupiter and Chiron meet up in Aries.

Until then, February gives us the chance to tie up loose ends and get ready to start on the right foot. 

Let’s take a look at the most important transits of the month:

February 5th, 2023 – Full Moon In Leo

On February 5th, 2023 we have a Full Moon at 16°  Leo

Square Uranus, this is a “no compromise” Full Moon. Uranus in Taurus doesn’t fool around. If something doesn’t make sense at a visceral level, Uranus in Taurus (the intelligence of Gaia) will take action. 

At the Full Moon in Leo, you will feel compelled to follow the truth, no matter what. Whatever needs to happen, will eventually happen. 

February 11th, 2023 – Mercury Enters Aquarius

On February 11th, 2023 Mercury enters Aquarius, one of its favorite signs. 

Aquarius is an Air sign, and Mercury loves air signs because Mercury and the Air element  share similar qualities: communication, awareness, curiosity, and objectivity.

The upcoming weeks are great for any activities that involve the intellect: learning, reading, solving problems by connecting the dots, social networking, or doing group activities.

February 15th, 2023 – Venus Conjunct Neptune

On February 15th, 2023 we have a magical Venus-Neptune conjunction at 24° Pisces. Venus conjunct Neptune in Pisces is the most romantic transit you can get. What a treat for Valentine’s day! 

Whether you’re in a relationship or not, this is a great time to connect with your heart from a “not knowing” place to receive its eternal wisdom and guidance. 

February 16th, 2023 – Sun Conjunct Saturn

One day later, on February 16th, 2023, Sun and Saturn meet in a serious conjunction at 27° Aquarius. Energetically, Sun-Saturn can feel like the anticlimax of Venus-Neptune.

But it doesn’t have to be. 

If Venus and Neptune’s dreams and ideals are based on higher, unconditional love, then Sun and Saturn will give them a solid 3D foundation.

If what we want (Venus) is in alignment with what the universe wants (Neptune), Saturn will give us the support we need. 

February 19th, 2023 – Sun Enters Pisces

On February 19th, 2023 Sun enters Pisces. Happy birthday to all Pisces out there!

Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac. The Pisces season is when we complete the 12-month cycle, or one astrological year. 

February and March (the time before the Aries equinox) have always been a good time to declutter the house, the body, the mind and the soul.  

During the Pisces season, take some time to reflect on what this astrological cycle has meant for you, and what you are moving towards or inviting in the next Sun cycle.

February 20th, 2023 – New Moon In Pisces

On February 20th, 2023 we have a New Moon at 1° Pisces.

The New Moon is making an out of sign conjunction with Saturn (at 28° Aquarius) so this is a more serious New Moon, at least compared to previous, Neptune-infused New Moons in Pisces.

The New Moon will give us a taste of the upcoming Saturn in Pisces transit. 

This New Moon in Pisces has great manifestation potential. The New Moon in Pisces will aim to make the intangible, tangible and to turn 5D dreams into 3D realities. Dreams DO come true IF we do the work (Saturn).

February 20th, 2023 – Venus Enters Aries

On February 20th, 2023 Venus enters Aries. In Aries, Venus knows what she wants and goes after what she wants. Venus in Aries can also make us prone to instant gratification “I want this and I want it NOW”. 

The best quality of Venus in Aries is emotional honesty. When we tap into Venus in Aries’ boldness and aliveness with an open heart, we automatically connect with that part of us that is real and genuine. 

Venus in Aries is a great transit to practice emotional honesty with yourself and others. Do you like pancakes? Own it. Do you dislike Madonna? Own that too.

Venus in Aries is not necessarily about broadcasting your feelings to the world – but about accepting and owning your feelings, values, likes and dislikes. 

February 25th-28th, 2023 – Jupiter Conjunct Chiron In Aries

In the last week of February we don’t have any significant aspects, except for the applying Jupiter-Chiron conjunction. Jupiter is now at 11° Aries, Chiron at 13° Aries. The conjunction is slowly building up (and will become exact in March). 

Pay attention to any feelings, events, or developments – anything that stirs inside you feelings of vulnerability.

Chiron is that “owie” we all feel, that wound we all share. And Jupiter will put the magnifying glass on it. Not to make us suffer – but to help us pay attention to what matters. 

You may have flashbacks of old hurts back from your childhood. A parent who ignored you. A classmate who bullied you. A teacher who made you feel inadequate. An event where you felt exposed or ashamed in front of other people. 

Old wounds will resurface to remind us of painful experiences we haven’t fully processed. This acknowledgment of the wound is a normal part of the healing process. Healing WILL come, but first, we need to make friends with the wound. 

I will write a report about the Jupiter-Chiron conjunction closer to the date. Until then, have a great February!

One thought on “Astrology Of February 2023 – The Calm Before The Storm

  1. Venus will also be in about a 2 degree orb of Jupiter last day of February. How would that impact the Jupiter/Chiron conjunction?
