Welcome to February 2024. This month, the sun enters Pisces, and Mars and Venus join forces to make every one susceptible to Cupid's arrows. Early in the month, messenger Mercury encourages you to at least talk about Valentine's Day. That way, expectations are met: both yours and those who love you. A new moon in Aquarius, followed by the Chinese New Year and beginning of the Year of the Dragon one day later, reminds you that celebrating fresh starts extend far beyond whatever goals you set back in January.

When poetic Pisces season begins, everyone feels more creative than usual. The next few weeks encourage you to prioritize work/life balance so that you have time to rest, write poems, and connect with your loved ones. Pisces is the final sign of the zodiac and an emotionally charged water sign, so prepare to feel all the feels. The month comes to a close with a full moon in Virgo that is stressful for some and simply sensual for others.

February 2024 Horoscope Overview

No matter what your star sign is, get ready for wise Pisces season and a romantic alignment of planets that convinces even the most jaded among us to break out the pink and red to celebrate Valentine’s Day. The advice that everyone gets is to communicate how you feel about this Cupid-obsessed holiday. If you don’t talk about plans and share with friends and lovers how you want to spend the date, you are setting yourself up for disappointment. Luckily, thanks to the divine messenger Mercury moving into community-oriented Aquarius on Sunday, February 4, people are ready to share. This transit also encourages connecting with friends to celebrate love, no matter if you’re single or happily partnered.

Each phase of the moon has various magical properties. When the sky goes dark with a new moon, it indicates beginnings. Time is an illusion, star signs. If you’re already fed up or frustrated with any New Year’s resolutions, feel free to toss them aside during the Aquarius new moon on Friday, February 9. And if you want to start a new wellness routine or just want another excuse to celebrate life, the day after, Saturday, February 10, is the Lunar New Year, which is the Chinese New Year, ushering in the fierce Year of the Dragon.

Valentine’s Day is bookended by two transits that make mid-month an ideal time to celebrate love, whether you’re interested in a small and cozy hang that doesn’t include anything heart-shaped or something over the top. First, on Monday, February 12, sexy Mars enters Aquarius. In color magic, red is associated with passionate love, which is totally Mars’s vibes. This transit is for epic celebrations with friends or ultra-hot sex (with a partner or vibrator). Then, shortly after, on Friday, February 16, sweet Venus joins Mars in Aquarius. If Mars is red, Venus is the kind, sweet, pink side of love. And even if you loathe such a color scheme in real life, you can still enjoy the loving balance of these energies.

On Sunday, February 18, the Sun moves into the wise water sign Pisces. As the final sign of the zodiac, Pisces is a poetic and emotionally intelligent sign. The next few weeks encourage pouring yourself into creative projects and opening up to friends, family, or lovers, adding depth to all relationships. If talking about your feelings sounds daunting, know that you’ll feel cosmically encouraged thanks to Mercury moving into Pisces, a sign that knows how to feel all the feels, on Thursday, February 22.

The month begins to wind down with a full moon in Virgo on Saturday, February 24. This is the lunar phase associated with manifestation, yielding results from intentions set half a cycle earlier during the new moon. While full moons can bring desirable career news, not to mention crazy hot sex, they can also be a bit stressful. Whether this lunation encourages you to lean into your primal side or stay in and rest is covered in your sign-specific horoscopes, so keep reading, folks, and we’ll see you in March.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

This month heightens your psychic abilities and encourages you to honor Valentine's Day non-traditionally. Even if you're happily partnered, it's crucial to celebrate your friendships and platonic love in your life. While investing in your chosen family is a worthwhile goal in its own right, spending time with friends could also lead to opulent outcomes that play out in magical ways over the rest of 2024. The Lunar New Year, also the Chinese New Year, marking the Year of the Dragon, reminds you to be bold but be careful not to use your fire-breathing abilities to burn bridges. The aforementioned heightened intuition kicks into effect when the sun enters dreamy Pisces. It's an advantageous time to practice tarot, keep a dream journal, or whatever speaks to you as a way of sharpening your spiritual practice. Answers and clarity surrounding a topic that's been keeping you at night (yes, that worry) arise when you need them most. Remember to trust yourself. Read your full February horoscope here, Aries.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

February is stellar for your career or creative hobby, leading you to get more attention for you hard work by the month's end. But you'll achieve the most success if you reach out to others for support. You sometimes need a little push to assert yourself. Remember that the squeaky wheel gets the oil, Taurus. The Lunar New Year, also the Chinese New Year, ushering in The Year of the Dragon, reminds you that you're bolder than you give yourself credit for. Your February theme is about making dreams come true, and you may be so obsessed with the forward momentum you're making that you forget about Valentine's Day. If you're in a relationship, just make sure to discuss priorities so that no one accidentally feels neglected. When Pisces season begins, after so much hard work and professional focus, the next few weeks are all about unwinding with friends. You deserve to have downtime, Taurus. It's healthy and makes you more productive in the long run. Read your full February horoscope here, Taurus.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

February will be a transformative month of evolution filled with spiritual revelations and professional advancements, Gemini. There's just one catch: You must be willing to learn from others. You're a highly intellectual sign, but you can expand your knowledge even more when you're able to accept that you don't know everything. The stars can't always compensate for our economy's shortcomings but, cosmically speaking, February brings opportunities for abundance. While it's no reason to worry, you'll come out on the other side much stronger, this month does ask you to do some soul-searching. But by the time the sky goes dark with the mysterious new moon in community-oriented Aquarius, you're too busy to be bogged down by stress. Instead, try to accept this month's lessons for what they are: an opportunity for growth. Read your full February horoscope here, Gemini.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

You're in for a red-hot month just in time for Valentine's Day. It's also a month of personal transformation and magic. Are you up for casting some spells? A new moon in eccentric Aquarius encourages you to engage in rituals, whether sex magic or a lavish bath. Don't worry: Your horoscope has the low-down on how to cast spells with your orgasms. When the fighter planet Mars moves into Aquarius, your task, which can be encouraged through such spiritual self-care, is to find a balance of calm while asserting your needs. From changes at work to feeling rather philosophical, your personal development continues when poetic Pisces season begins. The next few weeks will find you processing change. And February ends on a high note with a full moon in Virgo that rakes in results from the intention-setting you did through spells earlier this month. Read your full February horoscope here, Cancer.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

The stars want to give you an incredibly romantic Valentine's Day, Leo. That is, on one condition: Remember that it feels as good to give as it does to receive. You're ruled by the sun, so it sometimes feels like the world revolves around you. Be warned that you might feel a little bit jealous this month. However, you're not allowed to give into feelings of envy if you're just sitting around waiting for others to call you. This month, you're going to have to use your extroverted side to be the one who reaches out. If you can do that, February brings epically hot sex. When the sun enters Pisces, you feel ultra-creative, which is a side to Leos people don't talk about enough. And while it's an especially social month (as long as you don't sit at home pouting) a Virgo full moon at the end of February encourages you to stay in and catch up on beauty sleep.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

The tarot card associated with your sign is the Hermit. Most often, horoscopes talk about ways to defy your introverted stereotype. However, February grants your deepest wishes and insists that you prioritize rest. But despite this month's emphasis on self-care, don't neglect your relationships. Virgos tend to be perfectionists, but you could work on communicating your needs and boundaries. While horoscopes can't promise cash, the stars say that it's an excellent few weeks to get ahead at work, thanks to moves from fighter Mars. Plus, there's a deepening of the most important relationship in your life (you know who we're talking about). Finally, the month ends with a full moon in your sign that brings culminations, whether that's multiple orgasms or a friend achieving best friend status. Read your full February horoscope here, Virgo.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Of course, not all Libras are obsessed with Valentine's Day. But as the sign of relationships ruled by lover Venus, it's hard for you not to be affected by the rampant messages of Cupid. However, while the stars do indicate a good time this year on V-day, your most loving romantic time of the month may fall the weekend after the red and pink holiday. February also asks you to remember that Venus rules beauty in addition to love. It's a wonderful time to invest in skin care or a cute new piercing, anything that makes you feel doted on, especially as a form of self-care. Don't forget the power of being your own Valentine, especially if you're not dating. Venus blesses all Libra with love, whether it's from friends or family rather than a romantic partner. Plus, Pisces season insists on pampering yourself more, so enjoy, darling Libra. Read your full February horoscope here, Libra.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

During February, someone in your social circle shows up in a way that reminds you that they're family. Your challenge is to lower your guard and remember the difference between maintaining healthy boundaries and boxing people out. You require alone time but can sometimes go too far in shutting yourself away from the world. This month, accept social plans and go out. A new moon ushers in the start of cycles based on fortuitous encounters that happen around this time. So, while having fun with friends is a worthwhile goal on its own, February also leads to professional and romantic opportunities in the most unlikely ways. When Pisces season begins, sex and sensuality take center stage, highlighting the importance of self-care. Plus, a glowing full moon at the end of the month manifests delightful surprises and joy. It's a month that challenges you to say yes to social plans even when you feel like hiding. Read your full February horoscope here, Scorpio.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

You pride yourself in your ambitious and independent nature. However, your cosmic assignment this month is to allow yourself to accept help from others. Ruled by the lucky planet Jupiter, you're excellent at attracting abundance, but only if you ask for it. These principles hold true in both professional opportunities and personal relationships. February brings Valentine's Day; be the one to reach out about plans and you'll be more likely to spend the day as you desire. This month is also the Lunar and Chinese New Year, bringing in the Year of the Dragon. As a powerful fire sign, you revel in this bold and passionate energy. Just remember that asking for help requires a type of courage that may be harder for you but worth the challenge of curating. Read your full February horoscope here, Sagittarius.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Busy Mercury transits into Aquarius, making for a jam-packed month. Thankfully, you're happier when active, Capricorn. But don't be too booked to make time for friends. Someone needs you, and you want to give for the sake of giving but also so they'll be there in return when the day comes that you need them. A new moon starts a new professional cycle, whether accepting more work/life balance or making strides in a creative side gig. And when both fierce Mars and sweet Venus move into your 2nd House of Possessions right around Valentine's Day, you're not only in for epic romance, but opportunities to make some cash. Just as a full moon late in the month insists, don't forget to schedule downtime. Read your full February horoscope here, Capricorn.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Your season ends this month, and you must pass the torch to Pisces, but fear not. February comes with a sexy full moon and opportunities for luxury. However, to receive such cosmic gifts, putting yourself first is essential. You have a reputation for taking care of everyone around you while neglecting your needs. Divine Mercury wants you to know that if you're unsure about what to do about a situation, it's okay to do nothing for the time being. Action is not always required. Whether you love or loathe Valentine's Day, the stars send love your way around mid-month. Can you lower emotional walls to let love in? And, when the sun moves out of your sign and Pisces season begins, it may no longer be your season, but, while we can't control the economy, it's cosmically an advantageous time to make some money. Read your full February horoscope here, Aquarius.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Happy solar return, Pisces. Your season begins this month. A psychic new moon early in February offers clarity regarding a situation you've been ruminating on. The stars task you with acting on these realizations when the sky lights up with a full moon a few weeks later. When the warrior planet Mars moves into Aquarius, one of your star assignments, which continues throughout the month, is to assert yourself and practice saying no. That is before Pisces season begins. Then, while respecting your boundaries, it is of the utmost importance that you celebrate yourself, whatever that means for you. But try to say yes to some party, even if it's ultra low-key. Lovely Venus blesses you with romance even before the sun enters your sign. And, when it does, everyone wishes they were as wise as you. Promise to celebrate yourself. You deserve to be happy and get what you want. Read your full February horoscope here, Pisces.
