Valentine's Day is basically upon us, and there are plenty of lovey-dovey vibes in the universe right now. Maybe you're moving on to better relationships...or, you know, just swiping right. Maybe your S.O. is finally, actually ready to commit. Or maybe the universe is (eep!) making you text your ex. We tapped Love by Luna's resident astrologer Kyle Thomas to break down exactly how Jupiter, Mars, and Venus are working to make you luckier, more magnetic, and confident in your dating life on this heart-shaped holiday. Here's to V-Day 2K19!
With Mars in your sign the first half of the month, you're going to be feeling especially fiery, passionate, and controlling—but in a good way. Aries love to be coupled up with someone, so this is definitely your favorite time of year. Though, with the changing moon cycles, Aries will have to submit to their partner more than they're used to, which could cause some tension.
Mars is going to enter your sign, Taurus, which means you should absolutely go after what you want. (Because you'll get it!) So, go ahead and ask out the cutie you’ve been eyeing or take charge and set up a special date with your partner to take your relationship to the next level. Whatever your status, you’ll be one of the most fulfilled signs this Valentine’s Day if you actually make the effort. On the flip side...if you’re not happy with your current relationship, you might just end it completely. K bye!
Now is the time, Gem, to change whatever path y0u're currently going down. So, if you’re currently making a pattern of dating around and you’re thinking of settling down, this is the perfect time to try something different. Jupiter is giving you crazy good luck, and you can literally put that energy into your personal commitments. Plus, there was a new moon in Aquarius earlier this month, so you have all the positive ~vibes~ already around you.
Single Cancers will be thirsty to connect with someone this week, and the way the planets are set up right now, things are moving in their favor. That's great and all, but you still have to actually go out there and make an effort, Cancer. Try to literally put yourself in the kind of place where you can meet the person you want. If you want to meet a wealthy, successful, attractive person, go where they hang out. Then, share that info with everyone else, please!
As the sign who loves to be the center of attention, getting back with an ex is very on-brand this season. Seriously, if you’re still not over your them, now would be the time to shoot your shot. On a similar note, if you have a crush you want to finally connect with, do it up. Just, like, try not to wreck any other relationships in the process of getting what you want, mmkay?
Yes, you’re busy organizing everything and building your empire, but that can wait until tomorrow. According to the stars and Venus, you should be indulging in what makes you feel good and forgetting the drama. If there’s any sign that should let go and hookup with someone this Valentine’s Day, it’s the Virgos of the world. Just don’t hookup with that f*ckboi that makes you feel like garbage. That’s a no-go no matter which planet is doing something crazy.
Everything is going to feel so effortless right now, Libra, thanks to that Big Jupiter Energy. It'll be easier than ever for Libras to find someone that’s going to last and expand their horizons, so don't hesitate to swipe right with abandon. It'll also be easier to understand how everyone is feeling—something you definitely pride yourself on—which will naturally make your dating life much less complicated.
While Scorpios are deeply emotional, they also have a controlled, strategically flirtatious edge to them. (What can I say, ya'll are intense.) But rn you might just lose all chill and start showing that you have a real desire to dive into your relationship. Mars is in your house of marriage, which means you’re going to want to commit to someone big time. Of all the signs, you legitimately might get proposed to or make a serious commitment.
The moon will be hanging around your house of partnership, marriage, and commitment on Valentine’s Day, which means that you’ll be feeling the need to snuggle up with someone special—cuffing season is very serious for you right now. Single? try going to a yoga or meditation class to connect with yourself.
Capricorns aren't usually considered the zodiac's most romantic sign, however you can't avoid all that mushy stuff right now. Since you tend to focus more on the practical details rather than leading with your heart, consider taking more chances with your love life right now. If you’re not in a relationship, heads up: you’re going to be attracting someone with long-term potential thanks to Venus' placement.
This Valentine’s Day, you have every right—the most of any sign, actually—to complain about being the single one of your friend group. With Jupiter in your house of friendships, the stars/planets aren’t necessarily on your side when it comes to your love life. Not to be dramatic, but if you’re reluctantly single right now, you can consider this a legit attack from the universe.
For you, Pisces, the days surrounding Valentine’s Day will be *Oprah voice* huuuuuge. The incoming full moon in your marriage house means you’re going to be pushed in your relationships. If you’re happy, prepare for everything to get even better. If you’re looking to land a new job or are up for a promotion, get ready to move to the next level professionally. But watch out if your relationship is on the rocks—you legitimately could break up if you’re in a toxic situation. A blessing in disguise, TBH.
