Valentine’s Day is almost here, and it’s a perfect time to look to the stars for your love match… and according to the experts, this year the lover’s day falls on a great date to propose!
Horoscopes play an important role in relationship compatibility, but this Valentine’s Day all of our love combinations are looking better generally because of important planetary changes around the date (February 14th).
On February 13th, Mercury changes signs conjuncting the Sun and joining Saturn in Aquarius joining the Sun – these planetary combinations lead to a level of commitment which could be perfectly cemented in a proposal of some kind, whether this be pleasure or business. Whichever way it goes, there are lots of insights, communications and new ideas about developing some sort of structure or more stable commitment.
There will be a level of contentment, even if the restrictive energies of Saturn are at play… as a result Valentine’s Day could be a lovely day to propose marriage, renew your vows, or heighten your commitment in a relationship, or even suggest something like buying a family house, or having a baby together.
The stars suggest Valentine’s Day is a perfect time to sit down with your partner and discuss what you wish to accomplish together to strengthen your relationship and deepen your commitment.
Mercury is about ideas and communications and the Sun signals insight, awareness, stability, happiness and comfort… Saturn likes structure so it could be Saturn saying get your love life on track – for example setting a schedule for more date nights.
It’s time to be mature about your love life, and Saturn loves commitment. Saturn does not like casual hook ups, Saturn wants you to get married and have kids. Saturn also breaks every weak link, so if your relationship is not strong watch out!
There will be more relationship awareness with the Sun, Mercury and Saturn and a time for a deeper level of commitment or get out altogether.
Because the moon is currently in Leo, Valentine’s Day is also a great time to take on board lunar energy while ‘love in the air’.
All star signs will be under Leo’s influence this Valentine’s Day, but Leos (a Fixed Fire sign) will be particularly affected, along with other Fixed signs Taurus, Scorpio and Aquarius.
It doesn’t matter if you are single or have a partner! Be courageous like the lion and let love in.
Passion, affection and loving energy will keep running deeply with the moon in Leo.
By consulting our zodiac signs we can see who we are generally compatible or incompatible with.
Elements Earth, Fire, Air and Water are also influential in astrology so we can look for their connections to be more specific.
Star sign Modes are also important – with astrology based on the seasons.
Cardinal signs mark the beginning of seasons, followed by Fixed signs in the middle of the season and Mutable signs at the end of the season.
Tips for star sign compatibility for Valentine’s Day:
Aries (March 21 to April 19): is a masculine or ‘yang’ fiery cardinal sign meaning Arians are generally active, passionate and independent with strong opinions. They need partners who understand them and don’t try to dampen their fiery nature. Fire signs Aries, Leo and Sagittarius can make good partners however, arguments are quite likely. Air signs Gemini, Libra and Aquarius feed fire but Libra is opposite Aries on the zodiac wheel so this match could bring difficulties. Gemini is a good bet.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20): is a feminine ‘yin’ earthy fixed sign. This means Taureans are generally inwardly focused, practical and self-directed, verging on stubbornness sometimes! Relationships with Earth signs Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn can work but care is needed that these matches don’t get bogged down in the mud with feelings of depression or being stuck in a rut. Relationships with Water signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces can add emotional connection, which is needed for balance, but Scorpio’s opinions can bring clashes. Cancer brings added nurturance.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20): is a ‘yang’ mutable Air sign making Geminis outgoing, communicative and flexible. They can be quite intellectual and like to think and strategise about most things. They get on well with Air signs Gemini, Libra and Aquarius where there is lots of conversation, but some level of detachment can also occur. With other Air signs Gemini can live in some type of abstract world, but sometimes little gets done. Fire signs Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are attractive but with Sagittarius there are tendencies for much change, like it or not. A Leo match could work out best.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22): is a ‘yin’ cardinal Water sign so Cancerians are usually self-reflective, emotional and pioneering or instigating. They find support with Water signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces; however, these unions can be very emotional and hard work sometimes. Earth signs Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn can supply the grounding that emotional Cancer needs to thrive, but Capricorn can be too serious or conservative for Cancer’s liking. Virgo or Taurus are good prospects.
Leo (July 23 to August 22): is a ‘yang’ fixed Fire sign which is outgoing, warm and often has strong opinions. Though good relationships are possible with other Fire signs Leo, Sagittarius and Aries, arguments can quickly blow up as Fire signs are emotionally volatile. Unions with Air signs Gemini, Libra and Aquarius can work well. However, both Leo and Aquarius tend towards fixed opinions which can create conflict. Relationships with Librans are likely to be passionate and harmonious.
Virgo (August 23 to September 22): is a ‘yin’ mutable Earth sign which is thoughtful, careful and discriminating. Virgo can enjoy good relations with Earth signs Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn but they should guard against the relationship getting stuck in a rut or boredom setting in. Water signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces can offer a real sense of connection but sometimes Pisces might be a bit too much to handle. Scorpio relations could be fantastic, Cancer is likely to be good also.
Libra (September 23 to October 22): is a ‘yang’ cardinal Air sign which loves beauty, peace but most of all love. Libra is indeed in love with the idea of love and can enjoy wonderful relationships with other Air signs including Libra, Gemini and Aquarius. The most likely issue however is that sometimes there is a degree of detachment so that there’s a sense of not being grounded or practical. Fire signs Aries, Leo and Sagittarius can make good partners. However, there can be strong clashes with Aries sometimes. Leo is likely to be attractive.
Scorpio (October 23 to November 21): is a ‘yin’ fixed Water sign focusing on inner reflection and intense emotions. Scorpios are often ‘magnetically attractive’, and Water Signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces make good partners. There can be a lot of emotionality in these relationships however taking both partners down deep into subconscious waters. Earth signs Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn help ground Scorpio in practical reality, but Capricorn can seem somewhat conservative to Scorpio. Sparks fly with Taurus bringing lots of passion in the bedroom or in arguments. Virgo could make an excellent partner.
Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21): is a ‘yang’ mutable Fire sign being adventurous and expansive. Sagittarius enjoys freedom and needs an open-minded partner so Fire signs Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are good potential partners, although relations with Fire signs can bring both passion and volatility. Relationships with Air signs Gemini, Libra and Aquarius can work very well. Opposites do attract but sometimes fiery clashes will occur with Gemini.
Capricorn (December 22nd to January 19): is a ‘yin’ cardinal Earth sign being solid, dependable and generally hardworking. Relationships with Earth signs Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn can work well as you both work towards the same things. There is a risk of these unions being bogged down by work commitments and seriousness. Ideally, you could have more fun with Water signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces which complement Capricorn. Cancer matches can sometimes bring too much emotionality for Capricorns, so Scorpio and Pisces are the best partnership bets.
Aquarius (January 20th to February 18): is a ‘yang’ fixed Air sign being sociable, innovative and humanitarian. Air signs Gemini, Libra and Aquarius all make good partners, and the only risks are you talk for hours and hours and don’t get much done or a feeling of detachment from each other can sometimes occur. Fire signs Aries, Leo and Sagittarius can make great partners, but Leo can sometimes seem a bit overly opinionated for Aquarius. Leo sometimes thinks that Aquarius is off in the clouds somewhere.
Pisces (February 19 to March 20): is a ‘yin’ mutable Water sign being emotional, intuitive and creative. Water signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces are suitable for deep and passionate relationships however sometimes there can be too much emotion coming to the surface. Earth signs Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn provide stability and grounding bringing balance, but Virgo may find Pisces intensity a bit much sometimes. Pisces probably doesn’t always appreciate too much Virgoan logic either.
