These horoscopes are written as affirmations and are valid for the week leading up to the New Moon and the week after the New Moon. The New Moon arrives on February 11th. I advice you to read the horoscopes for your rising sign and Sun sign. If you don’t know your rising sign, follow the instructions on this page to figure it out.
Additionally you can read the horoscopes for February that I’ve posted earlier this month. You can read general information on the New Moon + the astrology forecast for the upcoming two weeks in this article.
The horoscopes are listed from Aries – Pisces.
Moving through collectively difficult times requires us to stay connected and to be compassionate. Moving through collectively difficult times requires us to remember our collective power. No matter the distance between us, I intent to stay connected with the friends, groups and colleagues that centre me. I plan to reconnect with the people that motivate and inspire me.
I’m committed to investing in my connections. I’m committed to attending to the groups that are waiting for my presence.
With this New Moon I notice that things are shifting within my networks. Cultivating my connections with colleagues and friends, asks for my effort and conscious decision making. I’m called to show up differently within the groups that I’m part of; show up differently in front of the classes that I teach, the activist parties that I support or the communities that I’m part of.
With this New Moon I show up to create bonds, innovate friendships, support group projects and initiate the coming together of souls (with social distance and masks, on Zoom if needed). We humans are a collective. We need connection as much as we need oxygen. We’re stronger when we’re together. We’re here to love and support each other. To create potential together. With this New Moon I reach out to my people.
This New Moon makes clear that I need to innovate the way I do my work, in order to answer to my calling. I know what makes me excited to get out of bed in the morning, I know what makes me want to hide under the covers and pass the day. I’m invested to create the career that makes me excited to get out of bed in the morning. I’m not going to let life pass me by.
This New Moon makes it clear that ‘I should’ do what feels purposeful and meaningful.
I liberate myself form the shoulds of others; other’s opinions and the unrealistic expectations of society. I liberate myself from the shoulds that I’ve internalized. I set myself free. I clear my life from anything that’s holding me back. I clear my life from the stuff that’s unnecessarily draining me of energy.
My new ‘should’ is figuring out what I’m meant to do. Should is following the path that makes sense to my heart; it doesn’t need to make sense to others. I’m on a mission. I honor my passion.
Success, money or praise may not be promised. I’m dedicated to build a career from the heart. I’m dedicated to myself and my mission. I know which way is forward. I’m planting seeds for the sake of it. I’m putting in my best effort, because it’s the most meaningful thing that I can do.
I refuse to lay dormant, waiting for interesting paths to pass by. I know which path is mine. I might not see the destination yet, but I know what I want to do in life. I’m honouring my calling. I’m following my path.
I believe that when I put my mind to something… when I put in my best effort… I can accomplish anything. Stubborn as a bull they say. Well, that’s my strength. No matter how long the journey is, my stamina and stubbornness will get me where I need to be.
Identity isn’t something that is fixed. Destiny also isn’t fixed.
My soul searching sessions fuel my self development. I’m changing.
How uncomfortable must it be for a caterpillar to become a butterfly? How scary and how painful must it be, to be in that cocoon? But the caterpillar cannot not undergo the transformation. Caterpillars must become butterflies.
The unknown may be scary. My destinations are unclear. I’m moving into the unknown. And as I do… I pledge myself to be open. As I do, I commit to learn about myself and to learn about the roads that I will be traveling. I will allow life, to broaden my mind; widen my scope.
With this New Moon I commit myself to study the philosophies that witness me. I embark on the pilgrimage that calls me home.
I’m entering the rabbit hole, knowing there is no way back; the only way out is through. Let’s see what wonderland is about…
I’m ready to become a butterfly. I’m committed to self development. I’m changing and transforming. I want to learn how to fly, and I will.
In six months time I’ll have a much clearer vision of what my pilgrimage is about. In the upcoming six months, I’ll invest my time in the studies and journeys that are worthwhile. I will read the books that are worth reading, put those aside that aren’t offering me much. I’m consciously deciding what I want to feed my mind.
In six months time I might not yet be ready to fly, but I’ll definitely be in deep into the process of growing some beautiful and strong wings. Wings that will eventually be capable to fly me anywhere and everywhere.
With this New Moon I commit to the collaborations that force me to show up courageously. I commit to the partnerships that ask of me to grow. I’m investing consciously and wisely. Investing my energy, money, time, effort, talents; to support the growth of others, by which I will grow too.
I dare to face losses. I allow myself to grieve when needed.
I allow myself to make new starts too.
In these challenging times, we need to work together. I’m showing up where I’m needed. I offer support where it’s needed. By working together we will heal and become stronger and wiser.
I dare to allow feelings of loss, sadness or hopelessness to pass by. They are temporary. I’m committed to myself as much as I’m committed to my collaborations. If needed, I invest in myself for the sake of my mental health. I allow myself to spend time, energy and money on myself; in order to be able to show up for others.
With this New Moon, I’m conscious of my investments. I work with the people that raise me up. I work with the people that I want to offer my love and support. I work with the people that have my back. I restructure collaborations if needed. I update my partnership agreements if necessary. I’m clear on the settlements that take place, the deals that I’m making and the contracts that I’m signing.
With this New Moon I move towards the relationships that respond, with courage and curiosity, to challenge and difficulty. I renew the partnership agreements that I have made in the past; the agreements that come with compassion, understanding and trust. I’m committed to put in my best effort to improve my closest relationships. I’m committed to update important partnership agreements, so that all parties involved get a fresh start at working through old issues. If needed, I give myself space to let go of the partnerships that no longer seem to honor the needs of both parties involved. I acknowledge that people can grow apart. Relationships aren’t always meant to last forever. I’m honest with myself about my relationships. I renew my vows only if I want to.
With this New Moon I’m conscious of the vows that I’m making and the contracts that I’m signing. This time, I dare to think outside the box. I’m up for unusual deals and nonconventional relationships. The queerer the better. I dare to sign up for something else than I’m used too. I dare to innovate the way ‘I do’ relationships.
Relationships always leave us forever changed. We can never estimate the impact that someone has on us. We are vulnerable in the face of love, rejection, acceptance and misunderstanding. I get to know myself and grow through my connections. I’m here to be transformed through my relationships. And with this New Moon I’m here to consciously transform my relationships.
With this New Moon I’m committed to investing in the people that encourage me throughout life, that I trust to hold my heart and that broaden my mind and widen my scope. I’m equally committed to investing in myself and saying ‘I do’ to the mirror’s reflection. After all… ‘me, myself and I’ is the most powerful threesome that life has to offer.
With this New Moon I recommit to the work projects that want to be revived. I know that I have offerings to make in this world. My work is worth working on, no matter the circumstances. What I do makes an impact. Thus the question is… What impact do I want to make? As I’m pondering on this question, I’m changing my perspective on my work projects. I vow to myself that I dare to think outside the box. I believe that I have valuable offerings to make. My work wants to come alive. My work wants to move humankind forward.
Whatever that may feel stuck, isn’t actually stuck.
I may pick all pieces apart and put them together in a different way. I may pick the box apart and put it together in a different way; thinking outside the box Virgo style.
The stars may be fixed, but my destiny isn’t.
With this New Moon I also commit to the healing practices that want or need to enter my realm. I care for the mind. I love the body. I heal the psyche. I don’t need to be a master in the healing arts to perform healing work. I attend to the wounds that I secretly carry and balm the wounds of others.
With this New Moon I set the intention to care for myself and to prioritize my wellbeing. I commit to the practices and routines that I know to be of support of my overall health. I’m here to vitalize myself. I allow myself to stack up on Vitamin D supplements and to splurge on a Manduka yoga mat. No one is able to pour from an empty cup. I promise myself to look after my cup, to do my best to fill it and to keep it full, so I may be able to offer my best work to this world.
With this New Moon I remind myself that I’m the artist in my own life. I’m capable of giving birth to the projects that are conceiving within me. I’m capable of tapping into the power of self-expression. When I put my creative power to use, I may experience joy and pleasure; even in difficult times.
I know that creativity is unlimited and perfect as it is. My paintings don’t need to be Van Gogh’s. My dances are perfect when they bring me pleasure. My work is good when I create it with joy. I won’t bound my creative power with perfectionism, I will unleash it. I’m taking my creative projects and dreams seriously, but I won’t hold myself to ridiculously high standards.
The art of living is a practice. I’m reimagining the ways in which I practice pleasure and joy. Pleasure is not just something that I experience. Joy is something that I cultivate. Fun is something that I work on.
In these challenging times, I’m reinventing fun, romance, sex, creativity, and the like. The good stuff in life asks for effort and work. I bring to it my effort, in order to receive blessings. I’m planting seeds for future joys. What I conceive now, may bring me joy in the months ahead. The projects that I start now, may flourish in half a year.
I find creative solutions for what’s not at hand at the moment. Restaurants and bars may be closed. The last time dancing out feels like ages ago… But I won’t let this keep me from experiencing pleasure! I take responsibility for creating joy. I’m an artist. I can do this! Let’s purchase some brushes and paint.
This New Moon pulls my focus to my roots. I’m assessing the structure of the roots; the health, spread and growth of my roots. I’m caring for them. Attending to them. Growing some more.
I’m caring for my inner self. Retreating. I’m cleaning. I’m clearing. I’m saging the place. Throwing away the trash. Driving the demons away. Saging my home, saging myself. I’m caring for my place.
I also care for those who are welcome in my space; my family, by choice or blood. Family patterns are difficult to change. Family contracts are hard to break. Nonetheless, I’m committed to knowing where I come from, understanding the patterns and breaking ancestral curses.
I’m doing foundational work. I’m doing ancestral work. I’m redefining the meaning of home. I’m making peace with the past.
I’m coming to know what I need, to make a place call home. I’m getting clear on what I need, to feel safe and comfortable. I’m figuring out what I need to renovate.
Renovating takes time. Taking care of my roots is a big project. Psychotherapy isn’t finished in two sessions. I know this building a home is a big project. I’m starting with the basement. I’m making an important start with this New Moon. Before I know it, in some months time, my inner and outer space will feel much more comfortable.
This New Moon pulls my focus to the letters that are coming in and the phone calls that are going out. I’m clearing my inbox. I’m responding to mails that have been waiting for too long and I’m dumping spam in the trash. My contact book may need some updates.
Communication is a daily but not always easy thing. I’m learning that I don’t always need to respond immediately, it’s okay to take some time. It’s okay to pause. I’m learning that I can ask for more communication if I need it. I can ask for answers when I have questions. I’m also learning to respect other people’s needs and boundaries in communicating. I’m learning that there are different communication styles. I might even want to adopt a new one.
I’m asked to share the knowledge that I have and the information that needs to be given. Speaking up isn’t always easy. I feel encouraged and pushed to express my voice. To share my opinion. It’s a practice. It’s like learning a new language, or any other skill. Playing with words, sentences. Daily utterings. Journaling.
This New Moon also asks me to take hold of my schedule. I’m becoming conscious of my daily motions. My movements and whereabouts. It’s stressful to have too many things to do, but one may also get burned out by boredom. I’m getting clear on how I want to spend the 24 hours in a day, the 7 days of the week.
With this New Moon I’m committing to the routines and daily practices that support me. The investments that I make right now, regarding the daily and weekly routines that support me, will pay out in the months ahead. I’m worth the effort. I commit to myself.
With this New Moon I’m taking a good look at my financial life. I’m getting my accounts in check. I’m getting clear on what comes in and what goes out. I know what my balance is. I’m allowed to save money. I’m allowed to grow my income. I’m also allowed to struggle. It’s okay to receive support. It’s okay to ask for a raise. It’s okay to enjoy making money. Financial struggles and financial successes don’t define me. My personal worth isn’t expressed in numbers. My personal worth immeasurable either way.
With this New Moon I’m learning all about value. Capitalism teaches us about value and worth. I’m learning not to give too much value to those lessons. I don’t take them to heart anymore. I’m learning that I’m the one that decides what’s valuable to me. I’m the one that decides how I want to spend my money. It’s okay not to want a fancy car. It’s okay to splurge money on expensive oat lattes. I only need to justify my spending habits to myself, not to anyone else.
With this New Moon I’m also taking a good look at the way I make a living. What are my talents and skills? How do I invest them? What talents, knowledge and skills do I want / need to grow? I’m getting clear on what skills I want to cultivate. I’m committed to self development. I dedicate myself to educate myself, in order to do the work that I want to do. I’m committed to invest in myself, in order to be able to generate an income in a way that makes me happy. It doesn’t matter if the road is long or the struggle is real. The first step is commitment. With every step I will grow. The destination will come in reach.
With this New Moon I regenerate myself. I’m breaking and I’m putting myself back together. My muscles are tearing and in the process they are getting stronger. I’m growing, even if I’m not gathering inches. They say all the cells in the body regenerate every so many years. It feels like that’s happening all at once. It’s intense. It costs tremendous energy. I can handle it! With this New Moon I’m reinventing myself.
With this New Moon I focus on myself. I need to focus on myself.
I AM. With this New Moon I am. I’m learning that my identity isn’t fixed and that my life isn’t fixed. I’m allowed to change… to restructure… to fall apart and to integrate again.
Other people’s opinions don’t matter. I’m choosing me and the life that fits me.
I renew my relationship with myself. I’m showing up for myself. For my identity, my sense of self, my body. I provide myself with care. I save energy for myself, because I know I’ll need it. Whatever job awaits me in this world, whatever I’ll need to show up for, I’ll need to be in shape for that. With this New Moon I show up for my mind and my body, so I’ll be able to show up in the world on other days. With this New Moon I honor myself. I love myself.
With this New Moon I make time for myself. It’s okay to take rest. It’s okay to retreat. It’s okay to be alone.
I feel pulled to focus on myself, or rather within myself. Work doesn’t only take place at the office or in Zoom calls. I’m reminded that working on myself is actual work. Self care isn’t always about taking relaxing bubble baths. Self care isn’t always fun. Going to therapy is self care too. Caring for myself is about allowing myself time to sit with my feelings. To acknowledge both my scariest nightmares and most exciting dreams.
With this New Moon I’m entering a quiet space. I’m discovering whether I love silence or whether it drives me insane.
With this New Moon I take time for myself. I create a moment just for me. With this New Moon I take the opportunity to turn within myself and to feel deeply. I enter my inner world. I meditate. I dream. I journal.
I enter a deep, dark and silent place within myself. It’s the place where I get to be reborn. It’s the place where I find myself. It’s the place where I regenerate. I know that if I get silent enough, there’s the potential to discover something valuable. I know that if I dare to enter the dark cave, I might discover a shining treasure.
I’m gathering the courage to turn within. I promise myself not to close my eyes for myself. I will not run away from myself. I’m acknowledging all of me. I acknowledge my fears and self sabotaging thoughts. I also acknowledge that they don’t define me.
I’m honoring myself too. I’m honoring the warmth and love within me. I honor the things that are not yet in existence. I’m honoring my wishes and dreams. I allow myself to sink into them, I allow myself to enjoy them. I allow myself to dream away, into another land, into the future or wherever I want to be.
