February astrology events in 2023

Curious what's ahead? Grab those 2023 planners and start jotting down some notes: there are plenty of transits to look forward to this month. 

1. The Full Moon (Snow Moon)

  • When: February 5, 2023

The next full moon is worthy of praise. Thanks to the Leo energy, we'll feel bold, creative and brave. Prepare to take on a passion project and enjoy that main character energy. (You know your inner Leo would expect nothing less.) 

"You can expect to be riding a natural high over the full moon as, for most, life will feel effortless but still exciting and fun," says astrologer Patrick Price. However, the stars' positions also mean there could be some hurdles to face, mainly around keeping an open mind."

2. Venus in Pisces Conjuncts Neptune in Pisces

When the planet of love enters the dreamy Pisces, romance and creativity abound. Take advantage of the dreamy feels!

3. Aquarius Season

  • When:  January 20 to February 18, 2023

"Aquarians are the ultimate forward-thinking dreamers and doers," says astrologer Michelle Bell, founder of Cosmic Fusion. "They’re quirky and eccentric and aren’t afraid to be themselves. Because Aquarius season also falls in the first month of the new year, it encourages people to embrace change and new beginnings."

Who doesn't love the dreamy Pisces season? Just make sure to remove those rose-colored glasses every once in a while. 

"You can get lost in those daydreams, but you can also use it to bring those manifestations to life as well. It can be a really great sign and season to picture what could be," astrologer Liz Simmons says of Pisces season

5. The New Moon

  • When: February 20, 2023

The next new moon will be a bit of a different energy thanks to its movement through Pisces. In order to properly prepare for the lunar phase, Price suggests being mindful of its approach during the February full moon.

"Write your list of things to let go of and finalize it by setting some positive intentions for the New Moon in Pisces," he says.

6. No Retrogrades

What planet is in retrograde? Oh, none of them! Enjoy smooth sailing until Mercury retrograde 2023 gears up for its second of four rounds beginning in April. But don't worry, it will not be as stressful as 2022, as Mercury will travel through one sign versus two. Use Mercury retrograde as an opportunity. 

"[It] offers us the ability to see ourselves," Price says. "It can lead to great self-awareness allowing you to make positive changes where they may need to happen."
