Welcome to your February 2021 Tarot Scopes!
February notable dates and transits:
Tarot Card: 7 of Cups: exploring a multitude of different options. Overwhelmed by making a decision.
New Moon in Aquarius: This is a new opportunity to connect to friends and social groups. You may feel more emotional than usual when it comes to friendships. This is a wonderful time to celebrate accomplishments with others, or join a professional network. This Moon is extremely powerful when it comes to wish setting. I recommend taking time to visualize and manifest what you want when it comes to your dreams, the results may surprise you.
Full Moon in Virgo: Pay close attention to health and wellness for this Moon. Committing to health routines and changes in diet can go wonderfully now. On the flip side; you can get organized, and down to the bottom of a work or schedule conflict. The work life balance is a real thing for you now. Overworking can equally throw you out of wack. Find balance in all that you do, and don’t forget to take time out to take care of YOU.
Where to watch and pay attention: Some friends may come and go this month. It’s entirely possible that someone who you had a falling out with makes a reappearance. It’s also equally likely you have the opportunity to hash out whatever created the separation in the first place and clear the air. Not everyone is your people, and you know what, that’s ok. If you’re finding yourself in a bit of a rut, it’s time to make a change. Join a group cause, or expand your friend list on a social media platform. It’s important to be proactive in seeking out friendships and associations that reflect who you really are, and causes that are near and dear to your heart. Can’t find a club that fits that description? Start your own!
Lucky days for the month: 14th, 15th, 16th
Tarot Card: 5 of pentacles: financial challenges, feeling left out in the cold.
New Moon in Aquarius: Career advancement is likely around the time of the New Moon. All eyes are on you, so it’s important to be on your game this New Moon. This is THE time to set intentions relating to new work projects or group collaborations. While it may take a month to work out all the kinks, it will be worth it. If you’re in the position of managing a group, you’ll learn that the fastest way to the top is delegating tasks rather than taking it all on yourself. Learn to share the responsibility and you’ll shine.
Full Moon in Virgo: A Full Moon in your house of creativity and romance may be just what the doctor ordered. You may be feeling more expressive and sentimental than usual. This is a wonderful time to share your hearts desires with another. This Moon is in harmony with your Sun and Uranus, helping bring pleasant surprises when it comes to children or romantic partners. Watch for physical manifestations as a result of your passions.
Where to watch and pay attention: The Saturn and Uranus squares are going to do a number on your nervous system. There is a building square between planets that can really naw away at your patience. Do whatever you can this month to ground out your energy and better connect with nature. Wear your crystals, hug a tree, go stand barefoot in the grass. The more you’re out and about and connecting with the element of earth, the less reactionary you will feel. Many of you are experiencing tension between your physical body and career endeavors. Remember, slow and steady wins the race. It will take most of February to get the pieces to fall into place. It’s possible you’re called back into an interview, or reimagining a career overhaul. Regardless, you’ll be in better standing come the end of this month.
Lucky days for the month: 17th, 18th
Tarot Card: Ace of Pentacles: New Financial investments or material gain.
New Moon in Aquarius: This New Moon is going to get you thinking about ways to expand your horizons and mind! If you’ve been feeling land locked and bogged down, fear not! This is an excellent time to get thinking about where you could return to. Do some research into how to get back to where you felt most inspired. You may plan a trip back to a physical location, or a refresher course of sorts. Those of you who are navigating higher education, there can be delays in course schedules, and second chances at programs you may not have gotten into. Friends from far away places may come calling, and it’s up to you if you’d like to reconnect. While travel may look grim now, it won’t be this Spring. You have a lot to look forward to.
Full Moon in Virgo: Home matters may take a more serious and practical turn. If you’ve been putting off a laundry list of things to fix up or organize around the house, this is the best time to complete it. The various household tasks may require a helping hand, so hire someone if necessary. Especially for the detail oriented tasks. It’s possible a pet or relative may need your support due to a health issue. If you have to return home for whatever reason, it’s the universe’s way of helping you move through compressed emotions. This can be an emotionally overwhelming Moon. Take it easy on yourself.
Where to watch and pay attention: Don’t get lost or caught up in the static going on around you. The world is likely to be a bit chaotic, but lucky for you, you can walk and chew gum. Stay on your path, and maintain your plan. The collective energies will be all over the map, so those of you who are empaths will benefit from learning to cleanse or shield yourself energetically. At points you will feel like you need to take a step back and hide away from it all. Opt to tune out with meditation and/ or the help of a spiritual practice. You may find that you are crystal clear when it comes to offering assistance or guidance to those in need, help when you can. But you alone can’t take on everything. Know when to offer a helping hand, and when to take a step back.
Lucky days for the month: 19th, 20th, 21st
Tarot Card: Page of Swords: A new line of thought or study, a youthful air sign person.
New Moon in Aquarius: Dig deep all month long. Deep into uncharted waters. The further you’re willing to go and examine, the more you will uncover. In a physical sense, this can be a great time to focus more on your connection to other people. This can be the most ideal time to put your head together with a partner and work out a financial challenge. You can better strategize for how to get ahead, and come up with a budget. The emphasis is on communication and expressing what you both need for security. This can also apply to your sex or intimate life as well. You have the opportunity to grow closer to one another if you try. On a spiritual or energetic level, this is a time for research or study. Areas such as metaphysics and the occult may interest you now.
Full Moon in Virgo: Contacts, transportation, and communication will be highlighted with this moon. It’s entirely possible you are having to have some important conversations with others. Siblings or extended family may play a role somehow. If you need to have a heart to heart, save it for this Full Moon. With assistance from Mars and Pluto, you have the ability to really strike a chord with someone close to you. When in doubt, talk it out. You will be surprised how well you can articulate how you are feeling. If you’ve recently taken up a new area of study, or found a book on self help, you will see the effects of that information take physical form.
Where to watch and pay attention: You may find yourself falling into patterns of the need for extreme change, and fear. It’s going to be a back and forth theme all month. But rather than burying your head in the sand and waiting for it to end, create change. Do one thing every day this month that scares you. Take on fear head on, and soon you will realize the monsters in the closet are not real. You have a tendency to want to jump in and help other people, you can’t help it’s in your nature. Self care is a big priority this month. You may find yourself oscillating between confronting fear, and asking friends for help/ insight or a bit of advice. Integrate whatever useful advice is given, dispose of the rest.
Lucky days for the month: 22nd, 23rd
Tarot Card: King of Swords: You are on the verge of a mental break through and are ready to communicate your thoughts. Difficult conversations, an older air sign person.
New Moon in Aquarius: Welcome new beginnings when it comes to your relationships. Some people will come, while others will go. Regardless of your relationship status; opt for expanding how you relate to others. Those of you who are facing make or break situations when it comes to a partnership, watch out for miscommunications. Someone else may need time to think over their feelings before sitting down to hash it out with you. Give others the time and space to communicate clearly. This Mercury retrograde period is about sorting out who is and isn’t a solid match for you. Trust if one door closes, a window opens.
Full Moon in Virgo: This is an excellent time to focus on what you value the most. This is the area of your chart that deals with your finances and material gains. Being in the sign of virgo, it’s an exceptional time to clean up your spending habits and come up with a solid plan before making a hefty purchase. This moon supports your overall wealth and the possibility of a salary boost. Equally, this part of your chart relates to your health, and what you eat. Opt for healthy or organic options when it comes to your meals around the time of this Moon. Find creative ways to invest in what you need to make meals from home. New spices, culinary gadgets, and fancy grocery items may be just the answer.
Where to watch and pay attention: This month is going to be a bit of a thunder dome when it comes to your personal relationships. If something isn’t working, don’t force it. You’re learning more about yourself and what it means to belong in a partnership. Love doesn’t mean you must lose your sense of identity. Your individuality is important. The astrology this month can have you wanting to connect with voices of the past. Be careful which doors you open, as you will learn some are better left closed. Going back to the past won’t fix your heartache, but it can serve as a lesson. When you see how much you’ve grown from the experiences of the past, you strive for more in a future partnership.
Lucky days for the month: 24th, 25th, 26th
Tarot Card: Wheel of Fortune: the winds of change are blowing in your direction, positive unexpected change.
New Moon in Aquarius: Time to get creative and savvy with how you go about managing your day to day. Looking into downloading a new app to manage your fitness or dietary habits can be the perfect way to get on track. Equally, many of you will benefit from timing reminders, and scheduling software to make the most of your time. Those of you who recently opted to launch a new gig or project with a friend may need more time to sort out any details; you’re in luck. The entire month will allow you the ability to rework your vision. Allow others to contribute, and keep an open mind. Part of being a leader in this department means delegating tasks to people who can help bring this vision to fruition.
Full Moon in Virgo: All eyes are on you with this one. Full Moons in this part of your chart deal specifically with your physical body and personal image. Take a selfie, a candid photo of you in your natural habitat. You will surely be glowing! This can be a wonderful time for a make over, consider changing up your look or hairstyle. Apt for a less is more look. Forrest green, beige, cream, and tan can set off your features best. When in doubt, consider speaking with a stylist who can point you in the right direction.
Where to watch and pay attention: This month the magic word is change. How you process and move through that will determine how smoothly February and really all of 2021 will go. This is an excellent month to tackle anxiety or stress head on. Come up with a game plan, get organized, and stick to a routine at all costs. Your health, and ability to get the job done at work depends on this. Integrating more of your spiritual or worldly beliefs into your day to day life can be just what you need to keep the faith. Possible disruptions in travel or work scheduling is likely. Go with the flow when interruptions happen. The universe wants you to think on your toes. Be open to the unexpected.
Lucky days for the month: 27th, 28th
Tarot Card: The Sun: Good news is coming to you this month, blessings of creativity, happiness, and possibly a child.
New Moon in Aquarius: Your energy is more creative than it has been in years. This New Moon kicks off the seeds you’re planting creatively. Now is an important time to meditate on what it is your heart desires. Some of you are moving into the phase of your life where self expression is key. The better you know yourself, the more easily these creative endeavors will flow. Take your time, as this is the beginning of what will be a several year journey thanks to Saturn. For some Libras this is a fertile time, and all about focusing on having children. For others, you’re looking for your one true love. Regardless, meditate and manifest falling deeply in love with something, or someone. The rest will follow. You have all month to play.
Full Moon in Virgo: Time to take a step back with this Full Moon. The energy is very potent for change, and will require you to rest and recuperate. Many Libra’s easily fall victim to getting sick or out of balance here with this Moon. Likely it’s a result of over working, or lack of boundaries with other people. Sometimes self-care means saying NO to others. If you’re not prioritizing your own sense of wellness, how do you expect to show up for other people? You’re the main priority on this one. Don’t let situations get you thinking worse case scenario. Repressed or unexpressed concerns can be the culprit for a Full Moon break down.
Where to watch and pay attention: You’re craving change. It may feel as if you’re spinning your wheels. You will be seeking more than just routine work and casual conversation. You need social connection this month. Join a group or community that nurtures your interests or hobbies. Dedicated creative time is very important this month. You’ll surprise yourself by how much better you feel by simply putting a paintbrush to canvas. Friends may come calling to go have an adventure. All work and no play can make you dull, so lean into taking some time to have some fun. While this may seem challenging with the state of the world, it will bring you new friends and help awaken your heart.
Lucky days for the month: 1st, 2nd
Tarot Card: Seven of Swords: a betrayal, or perhaps someone who is withholding information or a secret. An untrustworthy situation or person.
New Moon in Aquarius: Those of you looking to hit restart on the home front, you’re in luck. Wether it’s cleaning out the garage, or looking for a brand new place to live. This New Moon is abundant with options and oppertiunties. I highly recommend waiting until early March or April before making a move. Moving in February and in the middle of a Mercury retrograde is likely to play out in delays with movers, issues with leases, or home purchases. By allowing the transits to play out from this New Moon on, reap all the other exciting options that will present themselves. Believe it or not, your home is supposed to be your safe haven over the next year. Trust the big picture is about to be shown. Use the Moon to manifest a master list of what you’re looking for.
Full Moon in Virgo: Time to clean up your social media. Friends that have long been on the chopping block may need to go, or you may opt for a social media detox all together. Regardless, I see you opting to align yourself with people and networks that you align with most. Be on the look out to be more social with a romantic partner, or perhaps even be on the brink of becoming closer with some of their pals. There is extra support from a new group of friends who may draw the two of you closer than ever.
Where to watch and pay attention: Pace yourself this month. There’s a lot of moving parts going on in the cosmos. The pressure you’ve been feeling isn’t something made up in your mind. Suddenly you’re having to work harder to balance life and work responsibilities. This is due to Saturn and Uranus squaring off with one another. In order for you to grow in the matters of the home and heart, you need partners who grow with you. It’s possible erratic behavior in a partner can be bringing up some familiar themes from the past. Instead of reacting, use it as a learning lesson. Anything you truly possess can not be taken from you. Your relationships can serve as a mirror, showing you all of the places you have yet to grow.
Lucky days for the month: 3rd, 4th, 5th
Tarot Card: Page of Pentacles: The beginnings of new health routines, and financial investments. A youthful earth sign person.
New Moon in Aquarius: When in doubt; write it out. This New Moon puts the pressure on you to start taking how you communicate seriously. Those of you hoping to complete a routine writing schedule or perhaps get something published, this is the Moon to set those intentions. Same goes for; blogs, podcasts, etc. Contracts revolving around the time of this New Moon coincides with a Mercury retrograde, so here is your warning: read the fine print. If you’re trying to sign a contract, lease, agreement, or buy a car, it should be THROUGHLY looked over. Ideally, you wait until the end of the month when Mercury has gone direct. Same goes for electronics, save your receipts.
Full Moon in Virgo: How can you be of better service to the world? If you’re hoping to start a new job, launch a new project or apply to a top notch position, this is your Moon. Big accomplishments should follow shortly after this lunation. Look for praise from bosses and higher ups. If you work for yourself, aim to launch something in early March once Mercury is out of the shadow. This is all about success and reaping rewards for something you’ve been working on for months. This area of your chart makes you a master communicator, so share what you’ve completed with the world. They could benefit from what you have to offer.
Where to watch and pay attention: Your words have power, more so than usual now. While you may not always agree with everyone’s beliefs, it’s important to be open to what is being said. If you find yourself at odds with another, take a step back and do your best not to be reactionary. Important questions are being raised for good reason. This is taking place to help you become more aware of your beliefs and who you are on a core level. At times you may come across as hyper critical, but this is the standard you’ve always held yourself to. Change is possible when you are gentle with yourself and allow room for growth. Practice loving others for who they are, without attempting to change them.
Lucky days for the month: 6th, 7th
Tarot Card: 7 of Pentacles: Carefully investing time or money in something, choosing wisely. Preparing for future financial growth.
New Moon in Aquarius: This is the best time to harness your financial and personal power. You have a multitude of planets gathered in Aquarius to help bring your talents to light. The focus is to use the entire month of February to provide you several opportunities to expand your income. You will be collaborating with friends or a group in the near future. Not all projects will be ready to go, or lucrative. You of all signs know time is money. Not every iron in the fire is going to be worth your time. Choose wisely.
Full Moon in Virgo: The bigger picture is coming to light when it comes to your grand plan for the year. Many Capricorns have experienced major issues with business and travel plans. The limitations on travel have strained your ability to connect with others at a distance, or visit relatives. Thankfully, this Moon should start to show you the path forward so you may plan something. Equally, it’s big for something relating to educational plans, legal matters, and spiritual beliefs. You may experience an “ah ha” moment that leads to some profound developments.
Where to watch and pay attention: This month is an exercise in finding your true talents. To be able to uncover some of your most valuable traits, you may have to go through a brief period of trial and error. February will pull out all the stops in urging you to invest in what you value most. Most importantly, it will allow you the time and space to express this in a truly unique way. Watch for errors in spending, transactions, and large purchases. This can be an excellent time to review your spending and finances. If there’s room left in the budget, spend it on some art supplies or cosmetics. Your esthetic is changing and will require a minor investment.
Lucky days for the month: 8th, 9th
Tarot Card: The World: Positive completions of cycles, the chance for travel soon. Big accomplishments.
New Moon in Aquarius: This New Moon is all about you. New Moon; new you. Physically, and how you present yourself to others. This is a bit of a funky time, because due to Mercury’s retrograde, it appears you need until the end of the month to let yourself find the words. Stay flexible. It’s a weird place to be in, to have outgrown who you’ve been but not entirely too sure who you’re becoming. Trust that this is a period of self discovery. Watch out for making any crazy sudden decisions about your appearance. Now isn’t the time to buy a wardrobe of latex clothing, or get bangs. Don’t worry, you’ll get to fly your freak flag soon enough. Give it until the end of the month, then decide.
Full Moon in Virgo: The word that comes to mind when I look at this Full Moon is detox. Detox anything and everything that threatens your security or health. There is a need with Virgo energy to purify whatever house it touches. In your case it’s energy that’s connecting you to other people. Be that sexual energy; make it pure. Make sex and intimacy a sacred act. If it’s detoxing from an unhealthy financial habit, or just getting your accounts in order with a spouse. Major physical changes are likely to come about from the Full Moon. So whatever you decide to transform, it’s likely to stick. Death or endings fall under this category also. But remember; it doesn’t have to mean a physical death.
Where to watch and pay attention: You should be THRIVING this month. You were born for this Aquarian energy. Fly your freak flag, and be hopelessly and gloriously yourself. With the amount of planets in your sign, you may be reevaluating what you have to say, and how you want to present yourself to the world. Mercury going retrograde in your house of self can have you feeling a bit tongue tied, especially when it comes to expressing yourself emotionally. New home fronts may also be on the horizon, or perhaps you feel called to roam and find time to create more of a personal space for yourself at home. Give yourself until early March to work out all the details.
Lucky days for the month: 10th, 11th
Tarot Card: The Devil: Breaking free from limiting or abusive patterns. Detoxing from a substance or situation.
New Moon in Aquarius: What a truly magical and spiritual New Moon this will be. Somehow, travel, teaching, or metaphysics come about. It can be as simple as taking a new Meditation course, or falling back in love with a spiritual practice. Regardless of what comes about from this New Moon, take time to check out and spend some time in a tranquil space. Topics like astral projection, lucid dreaming, or manifesting may interest you. Film or art may prove to be extra inspirational. Let your intuition guide you in visualizing what you want to manifest when it comes to your alone time.
Full Moon in Virgo: A big decision is on the forefront when it comes to a relationship. This may be romantic, or a professional connection. Likely, it will come about around the time of the Full Moon. What you don’t realize, is it will have an immediate effect in the way you go about your life. If you’ve been waiting to air out some relationship concerns, or are feeling hung up due to a separation, this Moon will bring clarity. Trust that when one door closes, a window opens. It’s very possible what you need is something completely opposite of what you’ve been involving yourself in. Keep in mind closure doesn’t have to come from others, it can be something you claim yourself as well. Take your power back.
Where to watch and pay attention: There’s a light at the end of the tunnel, I promise! You’re going through a cosmic clearing, and it’s important to keep on moving through it. When communication or expression becomes too challenging, journal. Write music, poetry, or anything creative to help get it out of your system. It may feel as if there are hidden chains keeping you from being able to break free and get to where you want to go. Mind over matter my friend. If you aren’t careful an over indulgence of emotions can lead to falling back into old patterns of addiction or self sabotage. Keep moving forward, next month the Sun will come out.
Lucky days for the month: 12th, 13th

Happy new year, friends! We have collectively entered the energy of 2023, a “7” year in numerology… Sevens are spiritual numbers that offer opportunity to reflect, engage philosophy and spiritual inquiry for personal growth, thoughtful analyzation in all matters, and psychological integration and wholeness. Along with this theme of reflection is that we start the year in a handful of retrograde planetary energy. Mercury (communication, thinking, writing) is in retrograde until the 18th, Mars (action, desire, passion, motivation) until the 12th, and Uranus (technology, major shifts, disruptions, sacred challenges, transformation) until the 22nd...

Happy December, JSS fam! We have entered the final month of the year, eclipse season has ended, and we are soaring in the free and adventurous energy of Sagittarius throughout most of this month... The full moon on the 7th falls in Gemini and will be conjunct Mars… I always like to focus on gratitude and forgiveness for the final full moons of the year (hello, alliteration!). Forgiveness unburdens us and promotes healing through release, and gratitude expands abundance. This lunation highlights curiosity around who or what we can release to free up mental real estate those outgrown energies were occupying. The Mars conjunction coupled with those intentions and actions can assist us in calling back our power and stepping into confident and passionate warrior mode after unburdening ourselves to prep for the coming year.
