Romantic shakeups — and even breakups — set the mood for Valentine’s week. The Sun shines in the 5th House of Love and Expression while lover Venus conjuncts healer Chiron in the 7th House of Relationships. Meanwhile, the emotional Moon transits three Houses: Endings, Fresh Starts, and Self Worth. Keep some extra chocolates at the ready. You might be left eating your feelings.
ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
Venus and Chiron soothe wounds from love’s battlefields this week, Warrior. Meanwhile, ruler Mars gets aggressively optimistic in the 3rd House of Communication. You might want to tell it like it is. Try some kid gloves on for size.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
Sensual friend, ruler Venus has shacked up with distant Chiron, a.k.a. the Wounded Healer. This is your favorite holiday — when you have someone to take care of. Try not to overindulge either way.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
You bring new life to the term “lip service” this week, Lady Chatterley, as ruler Mercury stews in moody Pisces. Take that active mind of yours to the gym and leave your aggressions (well, most of them) there.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
You might be mooning over the object of your affection as your ruler Moon makes a hard break for a fresh start, reminding you of an important lesson: your self-worth is defined by you alone. Claws up, crab. And carry on.
LEO (July 23 – Aug. 22)
Hello, kitty. Your ruler, the fire-maned Sun, is in the 5th House of Love and Expression, ruled itself by airy Aquarius, king of the casual connection. All hot air and no commitment — just the way you like it.
VIRGO (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
You can’t tell what is fact or fiction this week, which boggles your hypercritical mind. Take time to let your intellectual ruler Mercury steep itself in intuitive Pisces. Confused is a cute look on you but try not to blame it on anyone else.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
With the Moon casting shadows of new beginnings in your sign, and ruler Venus cuddling Chiron the Wounded Healer in the 7th House, let’s be frank: you’re used to rejection, Scales. On the flip side, you know it’s for the best.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
Saturn and the Moon are bringing hidden things inside you to light. They may not all be warm and fuzzy, yet what is ugly can and should be loved, regardless. Just like a scorpion, despite its stinging nature.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
Diligent Archer, you are hitting the mark in your home life this week, sweetened by the love of a 5th House Sun. And with Uranus in your 8th House of All Things Intense, you may find yourself being propositioned by a sugar daddy. Don’t hesitate.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
Ruler Saturn is in your sign this week, Goat. Instead of getting spanked by life, you have permission to reward yourself with self-care. That’s the only action you’ll be getting, however. Call your mother.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
Your corner of the sky is full of love this week, Water-Bearer, as you celebrate another year, surrounded by friends. And with your kinky ruler Uranus lingering in the 8th House of All Things Intense, you just may be having your own assets reviewed.
PISCES (Feb. 19 – March 20)
With your ruler, dreamy Neptune, swimming in your sign alongside Mercury, you may find yourself expressing your fantasies out loud, foot fetishes and all. Since they’re in the 6th House of Wellness, however, opt for a foot massage instead.
