ARIES (21 March – 19 April)
Venus, the planet of love, is quietly making it’s way through your zone of relaxation, creating the perfect excuse to put your feet up and be pampered by your partner. Indulging in a candlelit bubble bath together or giving each other a massage with scented oils, would be an ideal way to show some love. Serious Saturn is culminating in your chart, inspiring deeper commitment in an existing relationship. Many will put a ring on it this Valentine’s Day. However, with the effects of the recent eclipse lingering, be sure of what you are signing up for.

VIRGO (23 August – 22 September)
This Valentine’s Day glows with the presence of the romantic moon in your work zone, implying that you could bump into ‘the one’ during your everyday routine. Anonymous love notes in your inbox come from a co-worker, employee or someone that you see on a regular basis. Schedule a lunch date that lovingly lingers into the evening hours over a cheese platter and an organic vino. No nonsense Virgos prefer to dash away from their desk for a quickie.

SCORPIO (23 October – 21 November)
Jupiter’s presence in your sign, makes for an extravagant Valentine’s Day celebration. Whatever you do, make it big! Like a moth to a flame, you attract plenty of lusty admirers. But you are nobody’s fool and can quickly weed out those only interested in your sweet caresses. An evening spent near the ocean, either sailing or walking hand-in-hand along the beach would be an ideal way to reconnect with your partner or get to know someone new and mysterious. Speaking of mystery, there is someone in the background that has their eye on you but shyness has kept them from coming forward. And what Scorpio doesn’t get turned on by a bit of intrigue?
Compatibility: Your hypnotic and sexy love style resonates with your water-sign tribe. Cancer, Pisces and other Scorpios understand your depth and range of emotion. While your intensity gets Taurus, Leo and Aquarius running in the opposite direction.
SAGITTARIUS (22 November – 21 December)
Mars, the planet that rules sexuality, lights up your sign, showcasing your hotness. A night that begins with fancy cocktails and ends on the dance floor, would suit your magnetic mood. However, with Venus in your zone of home and family, happily partnered Saggies prefer to settle in for the night, enjoying a quiet dinner and getting cosy on the couch. The moon travelling through your zone of information may bring news of an old flame or current lover. Skype calls will have to suffice for those enduring long distance love this Valentine’s Day.
Compatibility: Your adventurous and enthusiastic love style resonates with your fire-sign tribe. Aries, Leo and other Sagittarius share your zest for life, adoring your optimism and get-up-and-go.

CAPRICORN (22 December – 19 January)
If anyone was going to think of Valentine’s Day as a load of overly commercialised rubbish, it would you be you, Capricorn. Your classic and conservative approach to love can be reserved and oh so cautious. But this year, Cupid has hit his mark and you want to be spoilt a little. After all, you deserve it, right? But ask yourself; is it important to be made a fuss of with flowers, fine dinning and romantic notes or is spending time with someone who really cares, even though they don’t show it in flamboyant ways, enough? I think you already know the answer.
Compatibility:You have a no-nonsense and dignified love style that resonates with your earth-sign tribe. Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn understand your measured approach and high level of commitment to making a relationship work. While Cancer, Libra and Aries find your lofty expectations too arrogant for their tastes.
AQUARIUS (20 January – 18 February)
With so many planets making their presence felt in your sign, there are many exciting opportunities to connect with an interesting and diverse selection of potential mates. Some may turn out to be nothing more than a fling. But that’s okay, provided you are brutally honest about your expectations and where the other person stands. Elevating a platonic relationship to the next level, may ruin a friendship that you hold dear. Taken Aquarians enjoy an evening of romance, celebrating the simple things in life. It doesn’t have to be an outrageously expensive exercise to show someone how important they are to you.
Compatibility:You have a unique and electric love-style that resonates with your air-sign tribe. Gemini, Libra and Aquarius appreciate your intelligence and humanitarian compassion. While you are too emotionally cool for Leo, Taurus and Scorpio. And they just don’t get your need for space.
PISCES (19 February – 20 March)
Valentine’s Day is set to be awash with emotion, when the Moon enters your subconscious zone. A message that comes to you in a dream has special meaning and is trying to tell you something important. Is an old flame plaguing you or is past love on your mind? Valentine’s Day provides an opportunity to speak up and purge hurt feelings. Don’t allow negative thoughts and emotions to fester. Venus glows in your sign, inspiring love with someone new or rekindling romance in an existing relationship. Show some self love too. Don’t be afraid to try out a new look and invest in your physical appearance. You will feel fantastic if you do!
Compatibility: Your deeply compassionate love style resonates with your water-sign tribe. Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces adore your dreamy, gentle nature. While Virgo, Gemini and Sagittarius think you are an overly sensitive cry-baby.
