New moons in Aquarius are the perfect time to set intentions focused on your relationships, including romantic connections, friendships, professional contacts, and humanity at large.

On February 14, Mercury re-enters Aquarius, ushering in optimism, social energy, and inventive ideas that could brighten this year’s Valentine’s Day.

Put your energy into networking and getting group projects running full steam ahead. Use your natural leadership skills and passionate drive to inspire others toward success. The new moon on February 1 pushes your attention to your long-term goals. Focus on goals that make sense in the present moment. You’ll be motivated to put your nose to the grindstone to get the results you want. Share the responsibilities with others and you’ll see your goals come to fruition faster than you would if you carried everything alone.
You have a busy month ahead of you, so dig deep for energy and ambition. You may need to spend a little time prioritizing where you need to channel your energy and focus. Give yourself the opportunity to dream big — nothing is out of reach. While you’ll put much of your energy into tackling your to-do list, don’t forget to carve out time to take care of your emotional and physical wellbeing. Spend time relaxing with family and close friends to keep you grounded and present.
You may be given advice or new information about something this month that catches you by surprise. Don’t be afraid to ask questions to get the clarity you need. Remember that life is about learning as we go, so stay open to taking a deep-dive into researching a topic that piques your interest. Keep an open mind and prepare to experience the world through a new lens. This shift in mindset will invite deeper connections and conversations with others.
Your focus will be on strengthening your connections with those closest to you and forming relationships with new friends. Finding others with shared interests is the best way to forge an immediate connection that will soon transition into something more. Open your heart (and break down your internal walls) by letting others see the truest version of who you are. This is the best way to develop trusting, mutual relationships. Let go of any unnecessary judgements on people you’ve just met — let them surprise you and leave behind limitations that make you keep people at arms’ length.
Leveling-up your commitments to friendships and relationships is the best way to get the most out of this month. Giving your time (and heart) to others will fill your cup and theirs. While it’s important to surround yourself with the support of others, don’t grow too reliant on other people’s energy to sustain yours. While it’s wonderful to have the adoration and support of others, remember that your belief in yourself is what matters most. Don’t forget to share some of your sunshine and kindness with yourself.
While your predictable routine feels safest, this month presents you with the perfect opportunity to branch out and try new things. Dine at a new (to you) restaurant, take a different route to work, and talk to new people you meet or pass on the street. If you feel overwhelmed with the state of your life right now and find your thoughts racing, take that energy and do something with your body. Stay active and focus on achievable, short-term goals to help reduce overwhelm and give you a sense of accomplishment.
You’re great at reading people and making new connections, and your friendly vibe is more important than ever. Find the quiet person at work or in your friend group, and strike up a conversation. Sharing your thoughts, creativity and kindness is the perfect way to inspire them and yourself. This is an excellent time to give back to your community. Be prepared for the ending of a friendship that has been flailing for a while. Remember that it isn’t always about you or something you’ve done “wrong” — friendships have seasons, and it’s okay to say goodbye to someone who you no longer align with.
Letting go of clutter (mental and physical) in your life that’s putting a strain on your mental health is the theme of the month for you. Now is the time to let go of anything that is holding you back from achieving your dreams. You may need to make some difficult decisions that others don’t agree with, but prioritizing yourself is most important, no matter what anyone else thinks. Putting the work in now to build a healthy and stable foundation for yourself will give you the opportunity to make tremendous leaps in your personal and professional life in the future.
People will be drawn to you and your insights more than ever this month. Your social calendar will fill up quickly, as your wit and perspective on life are exactly what others need to hear. Take a leadership role when no one else steps in — this is your time to shine. If there’s an initiative that’s been on your mind but you feel it’s too big to tackle alone, recruit people to join forces with you for the greater good. While you are advising others, don’t forget that you can learn from and grow with them, too.
Now is the perfect time to build a financially comfortable life by paying down debts and creating (or tweaking) your budget. Making extra money will come easily this month, but only if you say ‘yes’ when the opportunity arises. While it’s good to make informed decisions, it’s equally important not to overthink every little detail, which can be limiting and prevent you from living your best life. Stay optimistic and shift your mindset into believing things will work out.
You’re no stranger to reinventing yourself, and this month is no different. Go after a dream you’ve been holding onto for years, wear the clothes that reflect who you are right now, and reconnect with old hobbies that allow you to be true to yourself. You may feel some tension between managing your relationships and living authentically. Remember that the people you are closest to need the same freedom you do to be themselves. Find a way to connect along the shared journey of self-discovery without stealing each other’s shine.
People adore you for your kindness, warmth, and undying support. But if you don’t set healthy boundaries, you may find yourself drowning in others’ sorrow as you work to fix problems that don’t belong to you. Setting your boundaries can help you maintain the right balance between being there for the people who matter while still caring for your own physical and mental wellbeing. Focus on how you can support others without taking away from your own needs. Offer help when you can give it, but pay close attention to when things feel too heavy so you can take a step back and give yourself the care and love you need.
