Lastly feeling like you’ll be able to breathe straightforward once more after final month’s whole lunar tremendous blood moon eclipse? (I imply, simply typing that out was exhausting.) Put together for a contemporary wave of depth—the total moon in February is ready to be simply as transformative, with a bunch of different planets and cosmic our bodies getting in on the motion, too.
First, let’s focus on the total moon itself, which is going down on Tuesday, February 19, at 10:53 a.m. Jap. You would possibly discover that this one feels additional highly effective as a result of it’s a supermoon—the most important and brightest one of many 12 months. “A full moon occurs every time the earth crosses between the solar and the moon. A full moon turns into a supermoon when the moon is tremendous near Earth, the closest it may be inside its orbit,” explains astrologer Virginia Mason Richardson. “As a result of the moon is nearer, it seems bigger and extra stunning than regular. In principle, we might really feel the consequences of a supermoon greater than a typical full moon merely due to its proximity to Earth.”
This explicit full moon is going on in Virgo, the signal related to practicality, perfectionism, and health-consciousness. Since full moons are a time of want achievement, celebration, and launch, you could discover that you simply’re experiencing some form of end result within the Virgo-associated areas of your life. However that’s not all, says Richardson—there’s tons of cosmic exercise occurring this week apart from the total moon.
“On February 18, the solar enters Pisces, and Chiron enters Aries,” she says. “And on the day of the supermoon, Mercury enters its retrograde shadow because it conjuncts Neptune in Pisces, whereas Venus conjuncts Saturn in Capricorn, and Nessus conjuncts Vesta in Pisces. In brief, so much is occurring, and this supermoon will have an effect on us on many ranges.”
Say what? That’s so much to unpack, however fortunately, Richardson’s right here to interrupt down the ways in which all of those planetary meet-ups would possibly have an effect on you.
Right here’s what to anticipate from the game-changing full moon in February 2019.

1. You would possibly see some hard-earned manifestations coming to life
No matter arose for you throughout final month’s big-deal full moon might come again for a repeat look this week, says Richardson. “Whereas that is technically a Virgo supermoon, it’s occurring proper on the cusp of Leo. So it’s actually extra of a Virgo/Leo supermoon, mixing the vitality of the 2 indicators whereas the solar blends the vitality of Pisces and Aquarius,” she says. (Keep in mind, the day earlier than the supermoon, the solar shall be making its transit from community-minded Aquarius to artistic, intuitive Pisces.) “Energetically, this takes us again to the two-year Aquarius/Leo eclipse cycle that simply completed on January 21. Mirror again. Issues that began to come back to fruition then are prone to manifest in tangible methods now.”
2. Your focus might shift to self-healing
One other essential facet of the total moon in February includes Chiron, a VIP comet that’s known as the “wounded healer.” It’s related to the areas of our lives the place we have now the potential to heal based mostly on our personal wounds and traumas. On the day earlier than the supermoon, Chiron will make its manner from Pisces, the place it’s been hanging out since February 2011, into Aries. “Chiron has been shifting by way of Pisces, therapeutic our spirituality and our understanding of common love and oneness,” explains Richardson. “On February 18, Chiron strikes into Aries, and we dive deep into an [eight]-year journey of therapeutic ourselves as people.”
As Chiron makes its transit, she provides, you could obtain steering from the universe about your therapeutic path or increased objective. “The overarching message for this shift is: Star-powered concepts are born in oneness. We obtain them by being at peace with oneness,” says Richardson. “And solely as soon as we’re at peace with oneness can we actually be at peace with ourselves, can we discover the braveness to step into who we actually are and notice simply how a lot we belong right here. How a lot we have now a spot on this world.”
three. You would really feel a bit of psychic
On the day of the supermoon, Mercury and Neptune join on the identical level within the sky—in Pisces, particularly. “Mercury and Neptune in Pisces heightens instinct and opens you to receiving highly effective messages from the universe,” explains Richardson. “Take note of your desires and what your intestine is telling you. Even should you’re not usually essentially the most intuitive, we’ll all get an enormous psychic enhance.”
Richardson recommends asking for steering out of your desires on the nights of February 18 and 19, after which writing down what you keep in mind while you get up. However don’t rush to behave on any downloads you obtain. “As a result of that is the beginning of the retrograde shadow, issues may not be as they seem,” the astrologer says. “You probably received’t absolutely perceive this message till March 28 [when Mercury retrograde ends].”
four. It’s possible you’ll really feel pressured about your love life
Mercury and Neptune aren’t the one cosmic coupling to coincide with the total moon. Venus and Saturn, too, shall be linking up, though they’ll be doing so in Capricorn, an indication related to dedication, ambition, and construction. “Venus and Saturn carry an uncomfortable lesson with this supermoon,” Richardson says. “You would possibly really feel such as you’re not getting all the things you need out of your relationships or work. However actually, this isn’t information. That is previous stuff that you simply’re being requested to take a look at once more, and as a substitute of getting angsty about it, you’re being requested to really feel grateful.”
Richardson suggests meditation, yin yoga, shamanic journeying, or intuitive therapeutic to take care of any emotions which will come up. “Mars in Taurus plus the Pisces solar make meditation particularly productive by way of March 19,” she provides.
5. You would confront problems with security
The final cosmic occasion to coincide with the total moon in February includes two asteroids, Nessus and Vesta, which may also be crossing paths in Pisces. “Nessus and Vesta aid you perceive methods wherein you haven’t felt secure in your physique or secure expressing your spirituality,” says Richardson. “This forces the query: How has the hearth inside you been squelched by palms unworthy of squelching it?” Solely by meditating on this and grieving it could you progress on, she says—and now could be the time to take action. As Richardson places it: “It’s time to fan your personal flames.”
Backside line: It’s time to make peace along with your ache as a way to rise
We’ll be feeling the consequences of all this exercise for fairly some time, says Richardson—most intensely till the March 6 new moon in Pisces, but in addition by way of March’s upcoming Mercury retrograde cycle and all through Chiron’s jaunt by way of Aries, which doesn’t finish till 2027(!). Her recommendation for navigating the adjustments which might be certain to happen? “On this full moon, as air, water, earth, and fireplace mix that will help you obtain all the knowledge, you will note how one can form the world. The way you’re all the time shaping it. Change is the one fixed. And while you mix your religious consciousness with otherworldly concepts, you turn out to be a pacesetter, and also you create actual, tangible change right here on Earth.” Appears like a superb time to lastly begin that girls’s circle, doesn’t it?
