February 2022 Forecast + First Quarter North Node Horoscopes


February 2022 brings intensely passionate energies. Venus and Mars conjunct each other for over a month, closely from February 7 – March 15. These lovers spend some of this time very close to Pluto in Capricorn. For good or ill, Valentine’s Day 2022 will be one to remember!

On February 20, 2022 we’ll experience the long awaited first exact US Pluto Return when transiting Pluto returns to his exact point at the United States’ birth date on July 4, 1776. We’ve felt the lead up for years, but this first exact hit will reverberate around the world for the next few years. Though tempting to color all of February with these transits, you can find more highlights below:

February 1 New Moon in Aquarius, 12:46 a.m. Eastern. The Sun and Moon conjunct Saturn and square Uranus, bringing new insights into energies of the prior year. We can also view this New Moon as “A BAROMETER” of things to come. How do various groups relate to each other and to ongoing questions of personal sovereignty, top down authority, revolution, mob role and potential “tyranny” “for the greater good”? We won’t find definitive answers yet, but we can put a finger to the wind and prepare for future outcomes. This New Moon coincides with the traditional date for Imbolc, which celebrates having made it halfway through Winter, when ewes produce their first milk. A time of sustenance and taking stock.

February 4 Sun conjunct Saturn, and Moon conjunct Neptune. Mercury stations Direct (near Pluto in Capricorn). A big day for emotional clarity with the potential for deep internal knowing and enhanced communication. We can now assess things from a sober, realistic perspective that integrates intuition and inspiration. Commitments arise from a clear understanding of emotional expectations.

February 7 Venus begins to conjunct Mars. Who can tell when these lovebirds very first noticed each other, but Fred and Ginger will be “out together dancing cheek to cheek” for five weeks. They begin in Capricorn and whirl into Aquarius on March 6. The cosmic lovers come together as Mercury conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn and trines the North Node in Taurus. Such alignments favor destiny level talks and realizations about the dance of intimacy. Physical connection may assist the integration process. Chemistry and feelings run high. Beware of jealousy.

February 10-12 Mercury conjunct Pluto. What information came to light in the past month? In which ways has your worldview undergone a death and rebirth? Pay attention to dreams, signs, symbols and synchronicities. Many messages occur on multiple levels. Look at the surface layer, but also probe the depths. A good time for detailed research and getting to the bottom of things.

February 13-22 Jupiter sextile Uranus. This period favors greater understanding of why people value freedom and independence. Innovative, expansive ideas may come onto the scene, offering previously unimaginable solutions. Pay attention to sudden insights and epiphanies, but pace yourself to avoid burn out. When in doubt, practice random acts of kindness.

February 16 Full Moon in Leo, 11:56 a.m. Eastern. This Full Moon in late Leo occurs at the same time Venus exactly conjuncts Mars. The close proximity of these cosmic lovers spans from February 7-March 15, but they consummate today. Uranus passes through 11°11′ today, too, opening a portal of liberation in Earthy Taurus. The energies are expansive enough to overwhelm. If you feel option dilemma, don’t try to decide anything today. Just enjoy the flood of potentials after a long period of immobility.

February 18 Sun enters Pisces. Light shines on the sign of dreams, mysticism, unconditional compassion, and higher love. The Sun joins both rulers — Jupiter and Neptune — in Pisces. Whether we “tilt at windmills” or luxuriate in a bubble bath to Chopin’s Nocturnes, we can more easily believe in a bigger picture and a benevolent, wide sweeping plan. The next month flows with creativity, cleansing (even happy) tears, and a return of faith.

February 20 US exact Pluto Return. Like the New Moon on January 31-February 1, we can view this first exact US Pluto Return as a “barometer” more than a one-time event. As chaotic energies crash and churn, pay special attention to the still, small voice within. What do dreams, signs and symbols imply about the meaning of external events? No matter where you live, the United States exerts a formidable influence across the world. Seismic power shifts have been ongoing for years. This could be “the big one,” but with Pluto ruling the Underworld and deep unconscious realm, we might not notice the change until we feel its aftershocks. Along with the feared death and destruction, Pluto brings renewal and rebirth. As the Hopi say, “This could be a good time.” Watch for unfathomable blessings surfing a tsunami.

February 22-25 Venus and Mars sextile Neptune. An extra dreamy period where higher love and unconditional compassion support personal love and passion. Manifestation may come easier during this time, so feel into your intentions. If they trigger peace and joy, lean into them even more. If not, practice non-attachment: think “if not this, then something better.” You can have it all, but the All is bigger than your ego can possibly imagine. Align your will with the highest expression of beauty and then take action.

How February’s sky weather affects you will vary, depending on your entire natal chart, but your North Node Horoscope transcends monthly sky events. That’s because your North Node reveals what your soul came here to do. By midlife, the soul starts longing and pressing us to live our true purpose. At first, it whispers through intuition. Then it knocks a little louder through “coincidences” and external events. When not heard and honored, the soul’s longing can show up as health crises, marriage or work issues, or wondering “is this all there is?” If you feel a need to reinvent yourself, following North Node guidance helps you do that authentically — for you.

Unlike generic Sun Sign horoscopes, which ignore so many other aspects, following North Node guidance will always lead you in the right direction. Doors open, healing happens, relationships improve, and life gets more magical. This quarterly column will help you tap into your personal North Node Mojo. When you start living your North Node purpose, we all win, because you not only begin to light up your own life. You light up the world.           – Laura

You can find your North Node sign here which is often different than your Sun sign. (If you’re right on a cusp, consider both options, or book a reading for more clarity.)


ARIES NORTH NODE: First Quarter 2022 could bring inner friction and turmoil with all the squares to your nodal axis from Capricorn. Relationships are especially “up” for reconsideration during these three months. When you muster courage to face your fears, you’ll gain tremendous ground. Respect your inner patriarch — the part of you who governs your reputation, your ability to lead, and makes sure you get paid what you’re worth. If frustration or irritation arises, consider that an invitation to explore uncomfortable territory. Your Libra South Node would rather avoid conflict, even when discord serves you. By Equinox, you’ll know yourself better, and will be able to act from a more grounded sense of authority.

TAURUS NORTH NODE: In First Quarter 2022, Taurus North Node natives will feel a shift — perhaps subtle at first, but it will gain steam over the next 18 months. The world starts conforming more to your highest level of expression. Unexpected, destiny level events lead to liberation. Much of this will occur without you needing to “do” anything. Retreat, meditate, you can even “hunker down” until inspiration strikes. Pay attention to strong nudges to take action, but if no nudges come, allow yourself to stand firm in your current position. Change will happen. Your job is to get quiet enough to notice how life rearranges itself around you. Go with the inevitable flow. Allow yourself to thrive and feel secure even in surrounding chaos. The scary stuff is not for you!

GEMINI NORTH NODE: On January 19th, the Sun enters Aquarius and brings a month of harmonious support for your nodal axis. Think best of the old, re-imagined into the new. Gemini North Node natives need to pay attention to little messages — tiny coincidences that lead you home. Allow your path to meander. You don’t need a straight shot in order to get where you’re going. Make micro-adjustments as needed. In January and February, energies from Capricorn will bring fleeting, yet important insights into relationships and intimacy. When new information comes, it’s OK to tweak your goals and expectations. The closer you get to an intention, the more refined your vision becomes. Love life could heat up in March with supportive trine energy from the Lovers (Mars and Venus) entering fellow Air Sign Aquarius.

CANCER NORTH NODE: First Quarter 2022 brings both challenging and supportive energies to Cancer North Node Natives. The True North Node’s move into Earthy Taurus offers more compatible energy for your sign than Airy Gemini. Squares from Aries and oppositions from Capricorn urge you to find new balance between form and function. Favor the softer side of life over rigidity. Emotions and relationships matter. A lot! If you’re not happy with your home life, consider upgrades, redecoration or even relocation to a more compatible cocoon. Focus on creating a cozy nest that allows you to rest and let down your guard. Collective energies could get crazy this quarter, especially in February. Not all structures and traditions will remain. Embrace more personal ways of feeling safe and secure.

LEO NORTH NODE: January through March puts strong focus on old patterns and expectations. If something feels like a loss, realize your nodal axis is getting a workout. Anything that falls away will leave you more receptive and better prepared for a brilliant future. You don’t see it yet, but liberation is within your grasp. Pay attention to how much energy or effort situations, tasks and people take. Time flies when your heart sings. Trust your inner enthusiasm and see which things bear fruit. Be honest with yourself: do these fruits taste sweet? If so, go for it. If not, you’ll need to release yourself from the tyranny of others’ expectations. You’re not here to fit in. You’re here to shine. Step into your truth and the right people will find you.

VIRGO NORTH NODE: This is a good quarter to focus on the power of your mind. Physical manifestation follows the formation of intentions, fostered by mental energy. Not everyone benefits from New Year’s Resolutions, but Virgo North Node natives thrive with greater discipline. Instead of daydreaming about a better life, turn those ideas into an official wish list. Healthy routines support you far better than occasional grand gestures. If you don’t have a daily (or at least weekly) to do list, you need one. Tap into that bigger picture Pisces South Node awareness and envision a more positive year. Then, plan for and implement it, bit by bit. If you gained weight in 2021, start 2022 with a cleanse of body and environment. Organizing your inner and external space gives you more confidence, clarity and energy.

LIBRA NORTH NODE: First Quarter 2022 asks you to find a balance between hard work, determination, sacrifice and surrender. Sometimes hard work means slogging through a jungle of should’s, must’s and straight up desire. Because nope, it’s not all about you. Partnership — with humans and unseen helpers — is always “up” for Libra North Node natives. Much more so in January through March. Relationships bring their own rewards. You might need to move more slowly or even shift some of your goals to include the ones you love. You’re not being codependent — you’re learning to cooperate and collaborate. The stakes are different than before. You’ll find safe passage by sharing the burden of those around you. Acknowledge signs of progress, even if situations move slower than you think they should.

SCORPIO NORTH NODE: When the transiting North Node moves into your South Node sign, your life path turns 180 from the collective energies. While the collective will face the dark side of Scorpio — your focus turns to its more positive expression: regeneration, rebirth, and renewal. When in doubt, observe things from a spiritual perspective, rather than a more Taurus South Node idea of what’s “real.” Your intuition works well, and you can afford to trust the inner guidance. Don’t let money worries get you down. While the rest of the world might need some lessons in this area, you need to pay attention to the light at the end of the tunnel. If things feels like too much effort, back off a bit. Your blessings will come in unusual ways and from unexpected places. Allow yourself to thrive in any circumstances.

SAGITTARIUS NORTH NODE: Since May 2020, your life path has felt 180 from those around you as the transiting South Node moved through your North Node sign. When the transiting nodal axis shifts from Gemini/Sagittarius to Taurus/Scorpio, you get released from the intensity. Take stock of perceived losses. What did they open you to receive? How did living 180 from the mainstream world increase faith in your own intuition and spiritual path? You’ll find it easier to make friends now, and things that burned away will illuminate greater truth and love. Difficulties that seemed fated begin to ease as the Universe turns its magnifying glass on other signs. Commit to bolder strides this quarter, and find a way to travel somewhere without restrictions and without compromising your philosophy or religion. Along with your angels, you will find a way.

CAPRICORN NORTH NODE: First Quarter 2022 brings rewards for hard work in recent years. This quarter involves a lot of Capricorn energy, continuing and amplifying December’s focus on relationships. Powerful magic, regeneration and spiritual insights vie for your attention. How will you seize the opportunities at hand? You can resolve longstanding confusion and any tendencies toward self-sabotage. Release that Cancer South Node habit of feeling like a victim of circumstances. You are where you are. You can’t control people and events, but you can control your reactions. Changing perspective brings you to a higher level of experience. An initiation process takes as long as it takes, but you’ll return as a different being — empowered by hard-earned and invaluable inner resources.

AQUARIUS NORTH NODE: Exercise the power of perception, and foster awareness beyond your own immediate experience. This quarter brings humbling insights that free you from ego wars launched by your Leo South Node. Awakening from the nightmare doesn’t feel good at first, but you can use those experiences to catapult you forward. When seeming loss arrives, look to your left or right. Something always replaces that which fell away. Consider the possibility of a universal benediction: everything aligns for the Highest Good of All, including your own highest good. You’re an important part of a cosmic plan. You don’t need to be the star of the show in order to play a key role. If you let go of a perceived need to dictate the “how,” you’ll find that life surprises you in beautiful ways.

PISCES NORTH NODE: Do you ever feel like Fate directs your course? Like some great Wheel of Fortune in the sky spins a Mystery so vast and so harmonious you can almost hear the Cosmos sing? That’s more than a random daydream or fantasy. You tap into a larger source field of Divine Awareness. When the world gets too much for you and worries overwhelm, spend time in nature or tap into your breath. You can unite passion and intention, as long as you align yourself with the spiritual element first. For you, the “real” world flows outward from the inner experience. When you take time to tune in, you regain that time in positive synchronicities, flashing road signs and wind beneath your wings. Instead of needing to figure everything out, you can go with the flow and get wherever you need to go. Indeed, this is your most efficient route.

  2. […] I don’t pretend to know all the details of any of this. I know what over a decade of dreams have told me about these times. I’ve also spent the past many years sending Reiki to various hot spots around the world, as I feel led. I strongly sense that despite outward appearances, most of humanity is on the best possible timeline with the minimal amount of pain and suffering needed to trigger a mass awakening. (Pain and suffering do the job when subtler nudges don’t.) My February 2022 Forecast notes: […]
