Valentines Day can be a delightful or downright loathsome holiday depending on one’s romantic prospects. How will your sun sign fare this Valentines and, more importantly, how can you make the best of Cupid’s day?
1. Aries (March 21 – April 19)
2020 wasn’t exactly a banner year for you in the romance department, Aries, and it’s understandable that you would look forward to February with more apprehension than excitement. This Valentines Day celebrate with the friends and family members who have seen you through your best and worst of times, and will likely outlast any love interest.
2. Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
3. Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
While the easily bored astrological twins are notorious for flitting from dalliance to dalliance, this year found you longing for something–or someone–significant and lasting. As much fun as you’ve had playing the field, Gemini, you’ve also come to realize the value of a loving, nurturing partnership. This Valentines Day may find you flying solo, but rest assured “the one” is closer than you think.
4. Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Relationships have played a key role in your life the past few years, with 2021 not only marking the start of new beginnings, but the closure of long overdue loose ends. While you don’t traditionally go in for Hallmark holidays like Valentines Day, there’s no denying that this February will mark a turning point in your romantic life, giving you something–and someone–to celebrate.
5. Leo (July 23 – August 22)
The regal lion loves nothing more than an adoring consort, but you’ve had to reevaluate your romantic ideations in the past year, Leo. Perhaps you put your partner on too high a pedestal, or failed to respect their desires in the pursuit of your own. This Valentines Day celebrate with your lover’s sensibilities in mind, and try to put aside your own amorous demands.
6. Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Virgos may not be the boldest of signs when it comes to matters of the heart, but you won’t find a more faithful, dependable partner. The truth is, you don’t *need* a designated holiday to express your devotion, as you express your love each day in considerate, practical acts that are as romantic as they are subtle.
7. Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Venus presides over your sign, Libra, and there’s no escaping her influence. No matter how cynical you pretend to be, you secretly adore all things related to love and beauty, and are never happier than when you’re lavishing your affections on another. This Valentines Day Jupiter’s influences will cast an infectious generosity over your sign that will melt the hearts of all you hold dear.
8. Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
The sensual scorpion is seldom in want of admirers, and it isn’t likely that you’ll be dining alone on Valentines Eve. That said, if you are in a longterm relationship it’s advisable to take this Valentines to connect with your partner on a deeper, more vulnerable level, however frightening a prospect that may be for you. You’ve spent much of your life building up emotional armor to protect you from your mortal enemy, rejection; why not take this occasion to finally let your romantic guard down?
9. Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
The well-meaning but brazen archer doesn’t always put the right foot forward when it comes to their relationships, and you’ve had to do some serious recon this year. Perhaps you acted selfishly or insensitively towards the one(s) you love, but don’t be discouraged. This humbling transformation has only made you a kinder, more intuitive partner, the full rewards of which will be seen this Valentines Day.
10. Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
You’ve been focusing so hard on your career and finances that romance has more or less taken a backseat this year. As far as you’re concerned, stability is the most sacred gift you can bring to a relationship, and this Valentines Day is the perfect time to relax and shower the one you love with all the fruits of your labor.
11. Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Just as you’re the least traditional of the zodiac signs, traditional holidays don’t make much of an impact on you. Your head and heart reside somewhere in the vast philosophical and intellectual cosmos, and romantic gestures must exceed the mere visceral or material. This Valentines Day will find you seeking meaningful connections of the non-romantic variety, which in turn will bring you closer to what Aquarians really call love.
12. Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
The ethereal fish lives with one foot (or fin, rather) in this reality and the other in an entirely different dream world. Anyone who has ever loved a Pisces knows how simultaneously exhilarating and infuriating the experience can be, and Pisceans must take care to include their partners in this luscious realm or risk losing them to the real world. This Valentines Day plant both feet on the ground and treat your partner to all the worldly pleasures they deserve.
