The full Leo moon is the Queen of Hearts this Valentine’s Day, and she’s every bit as dramatic as the excitable character from Wonderland who freely declared, “Off with their heads!” In this case, you can lose said “head” in favor of the heart’s guidance. Over-thinking is the death of romantic expression. Feel your way through.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Along with love go hope and luck. The people you extend your heart to will get your best wishes and intentions. These are more than thoughts in the air. They can be felt. They have power.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You like the kind of love that makes you feel puffed up and invincible, and yet you’ll find that the very best kind of love is the kind that humbles you and makes you want to be a better person.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Cupid’s aim is illogical, but no matter – the heart has its own logic. You can’t direct the trajectory of your heart any more than you can improve the archery skills of a small baby with wings.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You tell yourself many things, and most of them you believe. But someone else shows you sweetness today that trumps any nice thing you’ve said to yourself.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There are reasons for why you are attracted to a certain person. There is no such thing as skin-deep beauty. The muscles beneath are activated by emotions, thoughts and the yearnings of a heart.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The best gift you will give is a gift to someone who will never be able to repay you. The second best gift is to a loved one who is inclined to make you happy.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You can think and act independently – that much has been proved. It’s a tribute to your love that you’d rather not. Things are much more fun when the two of you make decisions together these days.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The French author Andre Maurois said, “In literature, as in love, we are astounded by what is chosen by others.” That will be half of the fun today.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Maybe it’s the lazy way, or maybe it’s the fearless, honest and direct way – the jury is still out. But the way that appeals to you most now is to simply say “I love you.”
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Everyone you love makes you laugh. They do it unexpectedly and yet consistently. You’ll try to return the favor today and succeed with flying colors.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You may not be entirely sure of what you’re getting into, but you are surely getting into it. As artist, writer and creativity champion Lynda Barry observed, “Love is an exploding cigar we willingly smoke.”
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). One Kenny Rogers song suggests that “love will turn you around, turn you around.” And that is the country music interpretation that will sum up your experience on this day of hearts.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’ll grow in authority this year and use your power to make sales, point people in the right direction and make good decisions in your own right. The next three weeks bring a financial high. May brings good news for your family. Old friends and special visits are featured in June. You’ll hit a goalpost in August. Aries and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 1, 22, 38 and 15.
WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: Wearing the right clothes for your situation sets a tone before you even say a word or do a thing. TAURUS: Your pure desire to serve others instead of yourself makes you ultra-attractive. GEMINI: Snuggling is romantic to a point. You appreciate the one who understands your spatial needs. CANCER: Your passionate feelings will be focused in a positive way. LEO: You will call the shots under this moon and are likely to find the right balance between spontaneity and thoughtfulness. VIRGO: The love you really feel will be apparent in the way you talk. LIBRA: Details are important to you now, and your love life fits right in with the aesthetic you find most pleasing. SCORPIO: You have stellar ideas, and success depends on your ability to execute them at the right time. Don’t rush! SAGITTARIUS: Names will mean something to you, and when your name goes well with another person’s, this adds to the chemistry of the match. CAPRICORN: You show your love by opening doors for another, and if you’re a man, you’ll do this both literally and figuratively. AQUARIUS: The care you take with your health is a gift to you as much as to others. PISCES: People will follow you, and you will strongly influence the evening.
COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: The Leo moon fully reflecting the glory of the Aquarius sun is a fortuitous omen for relationships involving these signs. These zodiac opposites don’t always agree, but they complement each other beautifully under these skies and will fall into step, assisting each other in fleshing out a full potential of talents and abilities. There’s a strong romantic link here. These two inspire each other.
