What Each Zodiac Sign Can Expect This Valentine’s Day
There are many ways to spend Valentine’s Day: alone, as a couple, with friends or family, or without knowing it at all. While no path is inherently better or preferable than another, you could turn to the stars for a clue as to the most cosmically aligned agenda for your February 14th. According to astrologers, love (and it can be any type of love) could be in the air for all zodiac signs this Valentine’s Day (and the days immediately following), and they have tips for maximizing this energy.
Just after Valentine’s Day on February 15, Venus, the planet of love and relationships, unites with Neptune, which focuses on connection and illusion. This union takes place in the sign of Pisces, which is at the center “of daydreaming and unconditional love,” says Stephanie Gailing, astrologer and author of The Complete Guide to Living By the Moon. The effect? What she calls “a very incredible conjunction” for love.
But we also get vegetables with this dessert. After the dose of daydreaming with Neptune and Venus in Pisces, we get a logical check in the form of the sun conjunct Saturn on February 16. According to astrologer and founder of the Black Women Being content platform and event series, Monisha Holmes, MSW, this transit will remind us that love takes work: “Saturn is all about commitment. and hard lessons, and even though people only want to think about the lightness of love, it really takes hard lessons and conversations to be able to develop a foundation of love,” she says.
Both transits encourage all zodiac signs to give in to the breeze of romance around Valentine’s Day, but also to ensure that the foundation is strong and true.
While both of these conjunctions occur immediately after Valentine’s Day, Gailing says the energy of each still affects us in the days around it, making them powerful on February 14. And though they may seem to bring opposing energy that would produce cosmic cloud and confusion, they balance each other out. Indeed, it encourages all zodiac signs to give in to the breeze of romance around Valentine’s Day, but also to ensure that the foundation is strong and true. “It’s a very interesting combination of letting ourselves be in the love dream but also being really responsible and making sure what we see is what we get,” Gailing says.
Any other good news from the universe for your Valentine’s Day predictions? The moon will be in Sagittarius (at least in all North American time zones), which Gailing says gives the vacation a vibe conducive to exploration and adventure. Also, no planets are retrograde right now, so only forward momentum here.
Below, find out what the stars have in store for each Valentine’s Day sign, according to astrologers.
What Each Zodiac Sign Can Expect This Valentine’s Day, According To Aries Astrologers
This Valentine’s Day, Aries would benefit from spending some time alone imagining what they want love to look like in their life using the power of imagination. Then they can connect to those feelings to help them “nurture that experience into their lives,” Gailing says.
Platonic love is a “passage to pleasure” for Taurus, according to Gailing. That doesn’t mean you have to drop your SO or cancel a planned date, but she does suggest spending part of the day “telling your friends you love them.”
This curious sign would benefit from broadening their horizons and exploring something from another culture on Valentine’s Day. It “could really connect them to that sense of reward and fulfillment and love,” Gailing says. Geminis love languages, so “learning to say ‘I love you’ in a few languages could be fun.”
Cancer is housekeeping and splitting up to do this V-Day, according to Holmes. It doesn’t have to be with one person, but maybe with habits and routines that don’t serve them in their relationships. “It’s more of a call for Cancer to think about what he really wants in a relationship and what he has to give up in order to actually have it,” she says.
Leo, who Gailing says is “so heart-oriented,” would do well this Valentine’s Day to focus on precision and thoughtfulness, especially on allocating their resources responsibly. Rather than doing things that might be considered frivolous, they should focus on meaningful, personal gestures and gifts. “Gifts of the day can come from really investing your energy, your time, and maybe even your money,” she says.
This typically precise and insightful sign can find itself “inundated with feelings” this Valentine’s Day, Gailing says: “It can be a very romantic day for Virgos, and yet they just need to watch their expectations. It can be a very romantic day. dreamy and romantic, but watch your rose-colored glasses.” She says forgiveness and acceptance can also play a key role for Virgos.
Holmes warns that Libras would be wise not to use work as a tool to divert their feelings this Valentine’s Day; she encourages them to “focus on their own enjoyment rather than throwing themselves into other people’s work or responsibilities”. A Libra-centric getaway or vacation is the answer. Being around other people and socializing is a bonus, and “can become a form of relaxation they didn’t realize they needed.”
Home is where Scorpio’s heart is this Valentine’s Day. “There’s something about being in your own home or someone else’s home that can provide a great reward,” Gailing says. Host someone or go to someone else. She also adds that the holidays bring “a real creative spark” for Scorpios.
According to Holmes, Sagittarius is prone to intellectualizing their feelings instead of addressing them, so this Valentine’s Day, it’s time for them to take charge of their expressions and tell people what they want. Their day might involve “calling the person they love and asking them to be their Valentine, even if it’s met with rejection and accepting that sometimes rejection happens,” she says.
Holmes says Valentine’s Day is a good time for Caps to “do the spiritual work” and gain greater clarity about what they value. “Being clear about their values… will help them be much clearer about what they want out of a relationship and generally help with their well-being,” she says. She adds that because Capricorn is a Saturn-ruled sign, it can be harder for them to admit their day-to-day feelings, so this dedicated time is helpful.
For Aquarius, Valentine’s Day brings self-awareness and confidence. “Seems like the foundation of what can help Aquarius thrive on this heart-centered day is to really take stock of them and know who they are,” Gailing says. “There’s this feeling of, ‘I’ve done a lot of hard work, and I’ve really distilled who I am and what I need, and I’m going to stick with that today.'”
Because Neptune is one of its planetary rulers and Venus is happy there too, Pisces “lives the dream and really is in their flow,” Gailing says. “They’re tuned into that sense of their own inner ease and magic.” She recommends harnessing this for Valentine’s Day to create a special experience for yourself or others that would “infuse us with a sense of soul and spirit.”
