Whether you're watching the Super Bowl, celebrating Valentine's Day, or bearing down bomb cyclones by sipping hot cocoa bombs with your S.O. or besties, February can be social, optimistic, and full of romance. For that, you can thank its astrological hosts: people-oriented fixed air sign Aquarius and emotional mutable water sign Pisces.

Until February 18, the confident sun moves through eccentric, rebellious Aquarius, bolstering platonic bonds and amplifying your focus on humanitarian efforts. And then until March 20, the vitality-bringing star moves through deeply feeling, even slightly psychic Pisces, fueling spiritual and imaginative pursuits. The air-to-water energy makes this month one in which forging and nurturing our bonds with others gets top billing. (Also read: Find Out What Your 2022 Horoscope Says About the Year Ahead)

A few quick highlights of February 2022's astrology:

Around February 1, you'll feel the vibes of the new moon in Aquarius, which connects with Saturn, fueling serious, hard work on our intentions. But because the moon will also square off against electrifying Uranus, you could be tempted to break free of any situation, pattern, or relationship that feels as though it's been holding you back.

Two days later, Mercury finally ends its three-week retrograde in Capricorn, clearing the way for more forward movement. And from the 3rd to Valentine's Day, it'll remain in the sign of the sea goat, pushing for more goal-oriented communication and thinking. Once Mercury moves through Aquarius — for the second time this year — from V-Day to March 9, it'll will bring a more innovative, progressive perspective to thinking and communication.

Around February 16, a full moon in bold Leo happens around the same time that Venus, the planet of love, pairs up with Mars, the planet of sex, in Capricorn, inspiring lots of post-V-Day fireworks.

And on February 17, lucky Jupiter — in Pisces since the end of December — will form a friendly sextile to electrifying Uranus in Taurus, signaling a moment for more fully embracing any major shifts or breakthroughs you've been musing about (possibly since the new moon back on February 1).
