February 2020 New Moon

Feb 25, 2020 11:27AM ● By Theressa Johnson

The New Moon in Pisces is at 4° Pisces and is conjunct Mercury retrograde, sextile Uranus in Taurus, and sextile Mars in Capricorn. Mars is the planet of action. Mars sextile the New Moon will push you may make some decisions that don’t seem logical but that will eventually set you free. This new moon is the first major one of Pisces season 2020, and both the sun and moon will be in this emotional water sign. Pisces energy is super dreamy, feelings-oriented, and creative, so we can expect to feel extra intuitive, romantic, and artistically-inspired under this transit. And thanks to some of the other planetary aspects hitting the moon, it’s also a great time to take advantage of cultivating our natural talents and interests, hanging out with friends, and embracing life’s spontaneity and synchronicity.

Uranus is the higher octave of Mercury. If Mercury is the ‘lower mind’ or how we humans make sense of the world, Uranus is the divine wisdom, the all-knowing consciousness. At the New Moon in Pisces, you can bypass your ‘human’ mind and get direct access to the AI of the universe. Let’s not forget though that the New Moon in Pisces is conjunct Mercury retrograde. This is not the most exciting transit in the world.

On one hand, you’ll want to start something new, because New Moons come with new beginnings, but then Mercury is Retrograde so not in its best shape, not to mention that Mercury is also in detriment in Pisces. You may feel confused and pulled in different directions.

Things are not what they seem – that’s why you want to take your time and do your research. Because we’re in the Pisces season, this ‘research’ doesn’t have to be conventional. Meditate. Look for signs. Ask your spirit guides.

This new moon rises in spiritual, emotional, and introspective Pisces. This makes it the perfect time to grant yourself the forgiveness you’ve been withholding. Pisces is about coming to a sense of completion and letting go of the past. There’s nothing you can do to change what happened. By continuing to blame yourself, you’ll never move on. Take a page out of the Pisces book and treat yourself with love and forgiveness instead.

With Mercury retrograde in Pisces taking you on a tour through the past, this new moon might have you exploring what’s come and gone rather than what awaits you — but that’s OK. A little reflection is just what you need before you decide where you’re headed next. However, don’t mistake this period of reflection for stagnation. This new moon still forms a sextile to energizing Mars and innovative Uranus, encouraging you to prepare yourself for something groundbreaking and huge.

Although every zodiac sign will learn something from this new moon, water signs will enjoy their lesson plan the most.

If you were wondering whether it’s time to start taking your goals even more seriously, then you’ve come to the right place, because February 2020 will be the best career month for these zodiac signs: Aries, Capricorn, and Pisces. Roll up those sleeves and prepare yourselves for something big, because the astrology of February will allow your talents to shine.

Even though the sun spends the majority of February in dreamy, spiritual, and selfless Pisces (taking the energy down a notch), February is jam-packed with potential for one major reason: Mars — planet of drive, courage, and self-assertion — enters Capricorn on Feb. 16. Mars becomes extremely powerful when it’s in Capricorn, mixing fiery passion with good old-fashioned hard work. Capricorn is focused, ambitious, and willing to put in the hours to get a desired result. Think like a boss this February, because Mars in Capricorn is coming.

This, combined with the sun in Pisces, will help you make your wildest dreams a reality. If you can envision it, then you can accomplish it. With the imagination of Pisces and the tenacity of Capricorn, the energy is beyond inspired. Get your creative juices flowing, tap into your destiny, and follow your intuition. Then, form a game plan. As long as you’re willing to work, the cosmos will help you every step of the way.

If your sun, ascendant, or Mars sign is in Aries, Capricorn, or Pisces, then you definitely don’t want to sleep through the month of February.

Between January’s ruthless Capricorn stellium followed by the kickoff of Mercury retrograde on Valentine’s Day weekend, it’s been a rough cosmic go so far this year. Thankfully, the February 2020 new moon, which rises on Sunday, Feb. 23, serves as the perfect reprieve from the recent astrological chaos. This super positive-vibes-filled new moon weekend is offering us a beautiful burst of inspiration and confidence that can set all zodiac signs off on an exciting new path or project.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Expect the unexpected, Aries, because this moon could rock your world. “You might be in for a surprise. And even if it doesn’t seem like it at first, it will most likely be a good one. “Keep an open mind — and most importantly, an open heart.” This is exactly the kind of cosmic shake-up you’ve needed to get you out of your Mercury retrograde rut.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Allow yourself to be fully inspired under this moon, Taurus — because it’s bringing some potential networking opportunities. “During this new moon, making contact with a group or person you admire could bring meaningful rewards your way,”. “Networking is highlighted for you — because if you don’t put yourself out there, who will?”

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Your creative vision is clear right now, Gemini, and it’s time to share it with the world. “This new moon brings you a sweet opportunity to make a bold move in the direction of your dreams. “This would be an amazing time to put that meeting on the books and share that vision or idea with your business partners or higher-ups.”

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

This isn’t the new moon to stay home and cuddle with the cats, Cancer — it’s time to put yourself out there and experience what life currently has to offer you. “You might feel like going out to explore new places and new scenes as you get inspired by this new moon’s greatness and sense of adventure. “[It] could put exciting and creative personalities along your path.” Be open to life’s magical synchronicities.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)

This new moon is blessing you with an almost psychic sense of what you currently need to heal and spiritually grow, Leo. Listen to your higher self. “You can expect intimacy issues and needs to be brought to your awareness now,” “During these days, doing some deep soul-searching will be not only fascinating, but extremely revelatory.”

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

Partnerships are weighing heavily on your mind right now, Virgo, and this luminary is the perfect time to send some extra energy toward those areas in order to develop those relationships the way you want to. “This new moon will bring the desire of a new beginning within a partnership. “Whether it’s business or romantic, you can lay the groundwork for an emotionally gratifying road ahead.”

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

Time to revamp your routine, Libra. “You might have to ask yourself if your current routine is working: Are you eating and sleeping enough, or do you need to make adjustments. “Regardless of the answer, there is no better time than this new moon for a fresh start.” This moon is your chance to start a new and healthy kick with confidence and strength.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

You’re feeling fun, sexy, free, and ultra-creative, so let your magic shine, Scorpio. “Expect a weekend full of artistic inspiration, as well as the kind of sexual connection that helps release pent-up energy. “Pisces is one of your [fellow water] signs, so just relax and have fun!” Allow the fun and creative burst of inspiration flow.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

“Spend this weekend reconnecting with your roots. “Lovely, decadent Venus squares off with your ruler Jupiter, bringing awareness to your needs and deepest desires — tuning you into them for some interesting revelations.” Keep things laid back this weekend, Sag, and you’ll be repaid in some major intuitive clarity when it comes to personal matters.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

This moon serves as a reminder to put work on the back burner once in a while and prioritize some healing you time, Cap. “If you are on the brink of burning out, this new moon might bring a reality check your way — as money-hungry Venus challenges Jupiter, the planet of abundance, in your sign. “The days surrounding this new moon are better spent learning something new that is not work-related — instead, make it about you!”

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

This is an amazing opportunity for manifesting and setting personal intentions, so do a new moon ritual and focus on your dreams. “With so much positive planetary energy activating your second house of money and possessions, visualizing what you want might really manifest it for you. “Also, show and feel appreciation for what you already have — it will bring even more abundance your way.”

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)

“This is your new moon — meaning it’s that time of the year to reinvent yourself,” “With Venus, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, and even Uranus supporting this gorgeous lunar energy manifesting in your watery, psychic sign, it would be silly not to. Rally all your troops and go for the gold!” The planets are cooperating, so make the magic happen.
