We love to share our essential oil blends in ways that can boost your health and happiness and expand the joys in life. Here, we pair monthly predictions from talented astrologers with the unique powers of essential oil blends. Each sign gets its own recommended blend to help make the most of the exciting times ahead. Read on to read your February horoscope and discover your recommended essential oil blends.
Ah, the strange and brief month of February! It’s a perfect convergence of eccentric Aquarius, where the sun stays until the 19th and feet-off-the-ground Pisces. This takes us into March to end the winter. Watch the collective mood turn from high intellectual pursuits, with a few weird quirks, to a quiet state of dreams and wonder.
People, on the whole, will be unpredictable. This is both an Aquarian and Piscean signature. We see the year’s first of three Mercury retrogrades in the same signs, which indicates a time of slowing thought and mental activity. There’s always so much hubbub around Mercury retrograde, but just think about it as an opportunity to look at things from a different angle!
Enjoy this visionary month, and be sure to check your sign to see which essential oil blend complements your cosmic path.
Feb. 9: Full Moon (Leo)
Feb. 17 – March 10: First Mercury Retrograde (Pisces to Aquarius)
Feb. 19: Sun Enters Pisces
Feb. 23: New Moon (Pisces)
We are still a season away from your time in the sun, dear Aries! This is a month to take some credit where you’ve put in the hard work, especially if you’ve found yourself back to school or involved in some higher pursuit of knowledge.

Don’t be surprised if your pursuits of knowledge and wisdom take on a spiritual flair. The end of the month will find you with unusually low energy. That’s the new moon in Pisces. But because the fish are in the aspect of friendship related to your own sign, you should have the time and inclination to use the sleepy vibes for amazing meditation or just catching up on some much-needed and well-deserved rest.
Tap in with the Sleepy blend of chamomile, kava, and lavender.
Taurus the Bull: April 20 – May 20
You may have found Aquarius season to bring extra changes to your life, where you really do prefer quiet stability. This month, help is on the way with a quiet new moon on the 23rd. Change can be chaotic for anyone, so if the past month and a half has brought changes to you, mid-month brings you a great opportunity to start feeling like yourself again.
As a bonus, you are extra-likable this month! Friends new and old will be connecting with you starting around the 19th. After the new moon, your energy levels will naturally rise, so make those brunch plans at the end of the month!
Opt for the Relieve blend this month. This blend of gently warming ginger, helichrysum, and spikenard will inspire your newfound peacefulness while you restore your energy.
Change is your middle name! And lucky you. You have so much in common with Aquarius, the so-called higher resonance of Gemini. This Aquarius season should wrap up with adventures and many new friends.
And while it may seem you have little in common with the emotional, sensitive, fish, Pisces season is actually quite fruitful for you! You, in particular, are susceptible to foot-in-mouth during Mercury retrogrades. So, if you’re feeling sassy around the 17th, maybe write a note and save it for later—your usual wit falls on deaf ears at this time.
That said, regardless of retrograde activity, Pisces season provides an opportunity to cash in on the areas of your life you’ve been responsible for and put some concerted effort or conservation into—your savings account perhaps? It’s a great time to treat yourself!
FOCUS is your blend this month, as clarity, productivity, and vision are basically your February mantras.
Cancer the Crab: June 21 – July 22
Ah, the zodiacal crustaceans! This month does not have much by way of huge change or earth-shattering types of events headed your way. That said, the sun and moon are active first in your transformation/shadow side and then move into your philosophical/travel side.
Make sure to connect with yourself and check in periodically throughout the month. This is a fantastic time to work with a therapist or go ahead and sign up for those yoga classes. You are as sensitive as they come, so Pisces season brings you welcome and sympathetic energy.
Taking the time to balance yourself and access your inner peace will bring to light new ways of thinking and being that are as beneficial as they are subtle.
This month, use Peace— a blend of rosemary, frankincense, and mandarin—to connect with your inner self.
Here’s something that’s no secret: you love being in the spotlight! Or being the spotlight itself as it were, with a full moon in your sign on the ninth. For a sign that’s notorious, rightly or wrongly, for being “me, me, me,” you’ll feel your more magnanimous and generous side coming out extra strongly this month.
You may even get some recognition for your generosity, as others are quite likely to notice you and your actions at this time. The sun and moon will light up relationships for you this month, especially the romantic side. Regardless of your current situation, you’ll find your heart open to love in brilliant ways. Enjoy the ride. At the end of Mercury retrograde next month, you’ll learn how to express what you experience at this time. For now, live in the moment!
The Love blend of cacao, davana, and siam wood is your way to your best self this month.
Virgo the Maiden: August 23 – September 22
You’re peaking creatively this month. You are one of the quietest and most industrious signs, rarely interested in glamor, but always neat and well-done.
This month, and Aquarius season in general, is more fun for you. You are taking every chance that comes your way to really get into the place that is fun and delightful, even childlike. Pisces season continues this vibe for you.
In addition, you may connect with others regarding some of the creations Aquarius season inspired. Either way, you’re uplifted. So, uplift yourself and uplift others! Aquarius is the humanitarian and Pisces is the universal empath. Your vision and creative insight are unparalleled right now and bring timely happiness into the Aquarian/Piscean vibes.
Try the Happy blend to continue fueling the happiness you’re predicted to experience this month.
This is a low-key time for you. What this month is about for you is a vague move toward something slightly uncomfortable. This is because of its spiritual depth, an area that is not in your “comfortable” wheelhouse, but certainly not outside of your capacities.
Ride the Aquarian momentum with its humanitarian character into the season of the fish and use it to dip your toes into ever-deeper waters. The Leo full moon highlights the possibility of big successes in the workplace, or anywhere you have put in conscientious and diligent effort.
The Active blend is your best friend this month. The bitter orange, black pepper, and sage are empowering as you enter a period of reflection after a successful first half of the month.
Scorpio the Scorpion: October 23 – November 21
Aquarius season is all about building up your intelligence and social network! How you feel about these things may vary tremendously, but overall, the sense of building in both of those areas is happening.
With Mercury retrograde, you, like Gemini, will want to pay attention to your words, which will carry extra weight. You’re already one of the most powerful signs, so tone it down if you’re not feeling extra positive.
The Leo full moon may be a challenging time for you if you have taken on too much at work or responsibilities. It’s OK to let go of one or two things at this time if the stress is getting to you.
However, you’re usually on your game and can see these things before they occur, so there’s no need to worry. Just apply yourself and do your best. You’ll get in touch with aspirations and inspirations as soon as Pisces season is upon us. For now, you’re all business.
Opt for the Healthy blend this month. The cinnamon leaf, marjoram, and turmeric will be supportive for the mind and body as you exert yourself this month, and you’ll want to stay in the best health to enjoy the refreshing waves of Pisces season once they arrive!
Sagittarius, you are the most fun and the biggest party in the zodiac. However, you’ve been laying low since the start of the year! It’s time to rev your engine a bit again! This month looks like an excellent time for money matters, maybe you’re starting a business?
The full moon will let you know if those around you have the same financial interests or can support you in your financial pursuits. Either way, you are very independent and capable. Just pay attention to the resources that come your way and especially who they come from.
This topic may be somewhat serious for others, but not you! You’re here to have fun. And when the sun moves into Pisces, you’ll be your social self again.
Have some Cheer! Frankincense (oil of prosperity), palo santo, and sweet myrrh (another oil of prosperity) are right up your alley and express how you’ve been feeling these days.
Capricorn the Mountain Goat: December 22 – January 19
New year, new decade, new you? It’s very likely. The past few months have been a big time for you, and Aquarius season has been a time to chill out just a little and recollect yourself.
The full moon this month will lead you into a reflective state. This will last into the Pisces new moon, in an extremely fruitful way. Expect visions that will inspire the rest of the year, and if you let it, the rest of the decade.
The power you felt as 2019 ended and 2020 began is still very much within you—let it work its course and receive the inspiration that comes. Meditations of all kinds are highly encouraged, as is journaling and goal-setting!
This month, the Zen blend to focus your mind and relax.
February sees you hitting your stride—work it! It’s the perfect time to get that fabulous hair cut or innovate in any way you see fit. Maybe your house needs an overhaul to express who you are now? Or maybe it’s time for a new car? Whatever it is, if it can get done before Mercury’s retrograde, it will have more staying power.
That’s not to say it’s “bad” if you decide to move or make any decision—big or small—in the retrograde time. Sometimes, a temporary change is fun.
On another note, the full moon in Leo may bring some zesty love your way. And if you’re feeling it, it’s a great time to go for it. You spend most of the rest of your time on the periphery and putting thought into the broadest benefits for the whole of the earth and its beings. If anyone is ready for a little romp it’s you.
The Sexy blend is specifically for you at this time. Jasmine, lime, and patchouli are unexpected, just like you.
Pisces the Fish: February 19 – March 21
This is a month of 180 degrees for you. You’re starting out a little sleepy, even a little awkward. The Leo full moon is a bit out of your element, but supportive in bringing some more energy your way.
And then Pisces, you will wake up! Use this energy to practice some affirmations, focus on your intentions, and otherwise situate yourself for whatever success means to you at this point in your life.
This is just in time for the new moon in your sign where you will feel a renewed confidence, and of course, Mercury retrograde. The retrograde will slow down your mental faculties. Expect clarity to come through dreams and through the words of others. In other words, it’s a good time to listen starting around the 17th.
Choose Ocean to get into the flow of your own depth and rhythm. Your uniqueness and self-expression will come out in full to the tune of eucalyptus, lime, and tangerine.
