This blog post with the main planetary movements will be part of my new monthly forecast format! I will still be sharing new and full Moon forecasts for each sign as I have done in the past, but they will be part of the NEW monthly forecast that is up on my site for the entire month so you can refer back to any part of the months astrological forecast.

The Major Astrological Influences in February:

For my western astrology friends, please remember I use the sidereal zodiac and the calculations for planetary transits are different than the tropical zodiac calculations.


The key transit inflluences I am sharing below are broken out in the individual forecast and written for non-astrologers and astrologers alike.


So all my astrologer friends, enjoy the bullet points and key influences.


Non-astrologers you may want to skip this and hop on over to your horoscope for February where I will break it down in plain language!


• Venus ingress Pisces 2/2 – 28 Lovely Venus is exalted for Valentine's day!

• Venus in the gandanta zone 2/27-29! • Saturn aspects Venus 2/2 – 28 although the Saturn influence will be strongest during the first part of the month. • Mars in gandanta zone 2/6 – 9 • Mars enters Sagittarius 2/7 • Mars aspects Venus 2/7 – 28 although the Mars influence will be strongest the second week of February. • New Moon 2/8 in Cancer and Ashlesha nakshatra • Sun ingress into Aquarius 2/13 • Full Moon 2/23 in Aquarius and Shatabhishak nakshatra • Mars conjunct Ketu 2/23 (this is one MAJOR event – be sure to read your horoscope for this important influence!) while at the same time is in trines to Uranus. • Mercury retrograde in Aquarius – yep, it’s that time again! 2/16 – 3/9. I will be posting a mercury retrograde forecast just about the time Mercury is getting ready to turn backwards. • Don’t forget to read your Saturn in Capricorn forecast if you have not already! This is a huge shift and will impact almost the next three years.

Editorial Reviews on amazon.com

“This book bridges an extremely critical gap in the understanding of Jyotisha: the gap between the ancient encryptic words of the seers and the contemporary way of understanding subjects in the modern world. Pamela makes this rather difficult subject relevant and approachable. A must read and must have for every student of Vedic sciences.”―Souvik Dutta, guru & founder, Ancient Indian Astrology Classes


"Vedic Astrology for Beginners offers a clear, concise, well-written overview of Vedic astrology and how it can be a roadmap to your spiritual growth and happiness. Pamela McDonough has a vast wealth of knowledge to share, and this book will be an excellent read for students interested in understanding the science of Jyotish. Highly recommended." ―Michael Mastro, Vastu Consultant, Vedic Astrologer, Author


"Not all astrologers make good teachers; not all teachers are good astrologers, and few are steeped in Jyotisha's authentic traditions. Pamela McDonough brings the best of all worlds in this book―an easy, approachable teaching style and a deep respect for tradition." ―Simon Chokoisky, author of The 5 Dharma Types (www.spirittype.com)


“Pamela McDonough's text is an excellent introduction to the fundamentals of Vedic astrology. It is written is a clear and concise manner to provide a good foundation for new students. I would highly recommend her book to anyone wishing to explore the ancient astrology of India and its application to the modern Western world.” ―Dennis M. Harness, Ph.D., psychologist and astrologer, founder of Sedona Vedic Astrology Conferences­

Your Month Ahead

Your chart ruler Mars finishes his stay in sultry Scorpio on February 7 and heads into fiery Sagittarius to join spiritual Ketu and expansive Jupiter for the balance of February and into March.


But before Mars is fully established in Sagittarius, he will be in the vulnerable gandanta zone – the last part of watery Scorpio, and the first part of fiery Sagittarius from February 6-9. Not the time to take any personal risks! Think of this area of the chart like the boundary between two countries that don’t play well together.


Once established in Sagittarius Mars and Jupiter together create an especially powerful blend of expansive and action-oriented energies. They create an influential yoga (combination) creating support for determination, leadership, giving good advice, personal energy and technical abilities.


The only watch-out is not to overdo things during this time! The fiery energy of Sagittarius and Mars combined with expansive Jupiter can push Mars toward overextending oneself.

Since Mercury is retrograde in the same sign and house as the new Moon on February 23, there is a double emphasis on social networking for fun or for your career. Mercury retrograde forecast coming on February 15 - check back here for your forecast!


Saturn shifted signs last month and will be in his own sign Capricorn for almost three years. This has major implications for career and earnings from your work. You can read your Saturn in Capricorn through January 2023 forecast here

It’s been almost a year since your lovely ruler Venus has slipped into its favorite and most sensitive sign of watery Pisces! Place a red star on your calendar for February 2, because Venus will be in Pisces until February 28. The last time Venus was in Pisces was April of 2019, so do not let the only beautiful and flowing transit of your chart ruler Venus in the sign of Pisces go to waste. Venus in Pisces only happens about once a year!


All things Venus (love, romance, creativity, diplomacy) will be in harmony for the month of February. Especially in matters related to your career and social networks. If you have a new product or service, seize this once-in-a-year opportunity and get going! You will have an extra courageous boost from passionate Mars (by aspect) and a serious work ethic from Saturn (by aspect) to Venus to help seal the deal.

Your good friend Mercury is headed retrograde in February so heads up on that. Mercury retrograde forecast coming on February 15 - check back here for your forecast!

It’s almost THAT time again! Yep, your very important ruling planet Mercury is going retrograde in February. But before that happens let’s get caught up on Mercury’s latest movements. Flexible Mercury pulled away from the Sun and has moved on down the road into airy Aquarius just before the end of January, where he will stay until April 6. No - this is not a typo!


Mercury usually flies through a sign in about three weeks, but the retrograde phase will place a huge emphasis on Aquarius and your ninth house of higher learning, spirituality and foreign lands. More on this topic in your Mercury retrograde horoscope, coming February 15. (ADD MERCURY RETRO FORECAST PAGE LINK HERE)


All the way until early April, communicative Mercury will be getting a full aspect from the visionary adventurer Rahu. Additionally, these two planets are technically in each other’s signs – Mercury in Rahu (co) ruled Aquarius and Rahu in Gemini which Mercury rules.


This is a major planetary connection and it is recommended to be on lookout for scammers. Be very diligent about the security of your identity online over the next two months.


The influence of Rahu can create deception and manipulation. Be mindful of your communication (Mercury) with others and you may also want to be cautious of any new spiritual teacher or transformation guru that pops up out of the blue or if there is someone or something like a workshop or course that seems too good to be true. It probably is! Due diligence during the Rahu/Mercury exchange! On the positive side this can be a wonderful time for spiritual progress, and personal transformation through your spiritual path. It can also bring amazing and surprising adventures in foreign countries.

Jupiter is finally free to be…Jupiter! Saturn has finally left Sagittarius for the next thirty years or so and your day to day routine and more mundane work obligations just became much calmer and more joyous. If you are in the healing, teaching or counseling profession the next 10 months will be powerful for your work, especially with Mars moving into this zone with Jupiter early February giving an extra boost of energy. If you want to heal something related to your own health, the connection of Jupiter and Mars will be supportive of your efforts.


February 2 lovely and diplomatic Venus slips into Pisces for almost the entire month of February! The last time Venus was in Pisces was April of 2019, so do not let the only beautiful transit of Venus in Pisces during 2020 go to waste.


All things Venus (love, romance, creativity, diplomacy) will be in harmony for the month of February. Especially in matters related to your social and career networking and money you earn from your career. You will have an extra courageous boost from passionate Mars (by aspect) and a serious work ethic from Saturn (by aspect) to Venus network her way into new territories. Since Venus will be in your ninth house in Pisces this will also be an excellent time for connecting with others in spiritual groups.


Additionally, Saturn, your planet of relationships, shifted signs near the end of January and will be in his own sign Capricorn for almost three years. You can read your Saturn in Capricorn forecast here.

Yay! It finally happened. Venus, Mercury, Sun and Saturn have finally left the “fun house” in your horoscope, where life has actually been not so fun, especially during the last six months. Things should start feeling a whole lot better right about now.


Your fifth house ruler Jupiter is finally free to be joyful and expansive in his own sign of Sagittarius. If you have children, your relationships with them will gradually begin to improve and expand now through September. Romance will be on your radar for the next 10 months and you may be feeling more creative than you have in a long time!


Enjoy your Valentine’s day holiday since your ruler Sun will have just entered into the house of relationships the day before! This will place an extra emphasis on relationships through mid-March.


Venus will be in Pisces February 2nd to the 27th! The last time Venus was in Pisces was April of 2019, so do not let the only beautiful transit of Venus in Pisces during 2020 go to waste. Especially since Venus rules matters related to communication and your career. Venuses movement through Pisces may signal a transformation of sorts in your career. If you are working in the metaphysical arts (astrology, tarot, etc.) you may find your healing work communicating with others and tuning into others very intensely and on an entirely new level.

I hate to break it to you, but…it’s time once again for Mercury retrograde! Before we get into that let’s get caught up on your chart ruler Mercury and his latest movements. Flexible Mercury pulled away from the Sun and has skipped on down the road into airy Aquarius just before the end of January, where he will stay until April 6.


Communicative Mercury usually zips through a zodiac sign in about three weeks on average – this retrograde phase places him in Aquarius almost four times the length of his average stay.


The retrograde phase will place an enormous emphasis on Aquarius and your sixth house. More on this topic in your Mercury retrograde horoscope, coming February 15. (ADD MERCURY RETRO FORECAST PAGE LINK HERE)


Earlier in the month, Mercury will be getting a full aspect from visionary Rahu. Additionally, these two are technically in each other’s signs – Mercury in Rahu co-ruled Aquarius and Rahu in Mercury ruled Gemini. This is a major connection between your chart ruler Mercury/Rahu and your sixth and tenth houses. Be mindful of the potential for someone to be deceptive with you in the workplace or of your anility for deception at this time. Be mindful of your communication (Mercury) with others, particularly in your work. Especially so since fiery Mars, the ruler of your communication zone is very strong through mid-March.


And if there is someone or something that seems too good to be true, especially showing up in the areas related to your health or your work, be cautious. It probably is! Due diligence during the Rahu/Mercury exchange!

It’s been almost a year since your diplomatic ruler Venus visited the sensitive sign of watery Pisces, it’s sign of greatest strength! Place a pink star on your calendar for February 2, because Venus will be in Pisces for almost the entire month of February. The last time Venus was in Pisces was April of 2019, so do not let the only transit of Venus flowing through Pisces during 2020 go to waste.


All things Venus (love, romance, creativity, diplomacy) will be in harmony for the month of February. Just in time to celebrate Valentine’s day with someone special?


Matters related to your work and daily routine will benefit from Venus. If you are in a healing or counseling role for your work, this will be a powerfully transformative time for you. Additionally, if you have some personal healing to be done, this is a fantastic month to get committed to health and wellness.


Just before the full Moon, Mars moves into the communication zone of your chart. Writing, communication and courage will get a blast of energy from Mars through the end of February. The combination of Mars and Jupiter in the same sign/house will predominate during the last half of February and into March. This combination is super charged, especially for those in the writing and communication business.

You will have extra courage from passionate Mars (by aspect) to bolster your objectives regarding your sixth house of work and service along with a serious work ethic from Saturn (by aspect) to Venus. The one watch out is that Venus loves the sweets! Be mindful of your sugar intake during this transit of Venus in Pisces. Saturn will help.

You have had a wonderful time the past month with your ruler Mars visiting his own sign, Scorpio. Unfortunately, all things must come to an end. But the good news is action-oriented Mars is headed into the sign of a friend (fiery Sagittarius) with a compatible fiery element.


But before this happens Mars must cross the treacherous gandanta zone. This is the area of the chart that is the boundary from water (Scorpio) into fire (Sagittarius). This crossing takes place from February 6-9 and is a good time to be conservative and not take any physical risks since Mars is the ruler of your physical body.


With fiery Mars in Sagittarius you may be direct in your speech and you may want to focus on your family and increasing your bank balance. Ketu currently influencing these areas really doesn’t care much about of either of these things, and Jupiter conversely wants to expand these areas. Once Mars gets past Ketu on the new Moon (be sure to read about this under the new Moon forecast!) he will be in a much better position to work with Jupiter and spend time with family and grow savings.

Saturn has finally left the building! It has been an intense transit of Saturn in your first house the past few years and you are getting a break in responsibilities now that he has moved into Capricorn. Be sure to read your Saturn in Capricorn forecast here since this will impact almost the next three years for you.


Meanwhile your very important chart ruler Jupiter is finally free from Saturn’s influence, this represents a very significant shift in energy for you! The heavier somber and melancholic energy of Saturn will begin to lift, and the expansive and joyful nature of Jupiter is coming your way! Ketu remains in Sagittarius until September, which will encourage your spiritual path. Although it is important to be aware of “headless” actions that can be driven by the influence of Ketu. Especially since Sagittarius is your first house and this house represents the brain.


Jupiter’s good friend Mars is also coming for a visit starting February 7. He will bring a lot of focus and energy to you during the month of February and a large portion of March. Depending upon your rising degree, you will feel this fiery and energetic influence stronger during the earlier, mid or latter part of the transit. This is a fantastic time to get going on a regular exercise regime. Mars will also boost your creativity and some subconscious thoughts or memories may burst through the surface during this transit.

Huge cosmic shifts for you dear Capricorn! Saturn has finally come h-AUM to your first house and you will be exploring your SELF more than you have in the past 28 years! Saturn was last in Capricorn in 1970.


More on the super important for you Saturn in Capricorn transit here.


All things Venus related to love and creativity will be harmonious in February. Especially in matters of the heart. If you have a new romantic interest or are currently in a partnership be sure to seize this once-in-a-year opportunity and enjoy this playful time! This is also a wonderful and supportive time to write poetry or a love letter for Valentine’s day. If you are in the creative arts field this will be a powerfully creative time for you at work, too.


Meanwhile action-oriented Mars, the planet responsible for your home and happiness is moving into fiery Sagittarius and the emphasis will be on digging deep into the roots of your emotions as they connect to your mother, your home environment and your broader social networks.

Your main birth chart ruler, Saturn has just made a monumental shift from Sagittarius into Capricorn! This will have a significant meaning for you Aquarius over the next three years. Do not miss your Saturn in Capricorn horoscope January 2020 through January 2023 here.


The co-ruler of Aquarius is Rahu and he is in a very interesting exchange of house and planetary energy with Mercury through early April! Mercury is moving through Aquarius and Rahu through Gemini (Mercury’s sign) in February and March! This brings a big Rahu influence (think BIG aspirations) to you personally in in your thoughts with regard to creativity, romance, children and speculation (think stock market) and places a huge emphasis on these parts of your life. Especially if you are in the planetary period of Rahu, since Rahu will be in his own nakshatra, Ardra for some time. If you are not currently in a relationship you may definitely feel like putting yourself out there during this time.


When Mercury goes retrograde mid-month, this could really mix up the energy, in more ways than one! Be sure to read your separate mercury retrograde forecast here – it will be posted just after Valentine’s day so check back then. Speaking of Valentine’s day…have a wonderful romantic day with that Mercury/Rahu exchange. Mercury will be stationing the day before the holiday and very strong. Plan something dreamy!

Always last but never least, dear Pisces! Your ruler Jupiter is in his happy place through November of 2020. Saturn and most of the other planets that were packed into Sagittarius have finally left the building so that you can focus on your career and expansion of your brand name recognition if you are self-employed and if you are employed by someone else, your professional status within your company.


One caveat – spiritual and headless Ketu will remain with Jupiter in Sagittarius until September. Ketu will certainly lend a spiritual quality both to you and to your work during the next six months.


Lovely Venus will be sending you and your relationship zone of your horoscope some major glances from 2/2 – 28. So, plan on a passionate Valentine’s day if you are currently in a relationship or dating! Venus will also support persuasive communication and marketing so make some headway in February, especially if you own your own business. You may be undergoing some beautiful personal transformation this month too. Absolutely a fantastic time to go shopping or try a new hair style.
