Valen­tine’s Day

Pasatiempo - - On The Cover -

is an Aquar­ian hol­i­day; Aquarius loves ideas, and love is a great idea. But like all ideas, this can be a chance to ex­press some­thing we truly feel or an ab­stract con­cept that re­moves us from an au­then­tic present.

Aquarius is not an ex­pert on in­ti­macy; it spe­cial­izes in com­mu­nity, so let’s give our­selves the gift of al­tru­ism. Ask not what Valen­tine’s Day can do for you, but what you can do for Valen­tines’ Day— love the whole world and take the heat off per­sonal dy­nam­ics.

We need to take our imagination some­where won­der­ful, as it’s easy to feel vul­ner­a­ble and over­sen­si­tive. Venus in Pisces and Mars in ig­nore-meif-you-dare Leo make it ro­man­ti­cally un­wise to space out on the usual rit­u­als. A to­ken without thought can trig­ger more lone­li­ness for those in re­la­tion­ships; we want to feel seen and un­der­stood.

Those not paired up might con­sider gath­er­ing other non-part­nered friends for fun or in com­pas­sion­ate action. If feel­ings of soli­tude arise, do a heart­cen­tered med­i­ta­tion or dive into art. Every­one ben­e­fits from find­ing a way to be of ser­vice this week­end as the sun and Nep­tune con­junct un­der a dreamy moon, Venus, and Jupiter con­junc­tion in Pisces.

This ef­fu­sive Venus-Jupiter as­pect can also ir­ri­tate peo­ple who hold oth­ers re­spon­si­ble for their lone­li­ness. Avoid dif­fi­cult ex-part­ners and be wary of strangers through­out the week, but this ten­der time of­fers a chance to heal our mis­an­thropic splin­ters if we treat all with loving-kind­ness.

Mid­week, action and cre­ativ­ity can work to­gether to im­prove our world as in­dus­tri­ous Mars sex­tiles Saturn. The sun en­ters Pisces on Thurs­day and en­cour­ages us to re­view, re­new, and pre­pare for the com­ing spring. Fri­day, Feb. 12: The morn­ing is ir­ri­tat­ing and ac­ci­dent-prone as the Aquarius moon op­poses Mars, but the day be­comes smooth af­ter mid­day ad­just­ments. Mer­cury trines Saturn later, and con­ver­sa­tions deepen. We have pa­tience and fore­sight but are still fo­cused on the far hori­zon. Process work is­sues. Satur­day, Feb. 13: Opin­ions get us in trou­ble as Mer­cury op­poses Mars; choose fights care­fully. A wide-open, wan­der­ing af­ter­noon en­cour­ages us to run with good ideas. Tonight we want to share a dream as the new moon con­juncts Nep­tune and Ch­i­ron: party, fundraise, and med­i­tate. Sun­day, Feb. 14: Make life a creative mas­ter­piece as the moon, Venus, and Jupiter con­junct in Pisces. We can open our hearts more freely if ex­pec­ta­tions are low and grat­i­tude is high. Evening can be ex­pan­sive and philo­soph­i­cal as the moon con­juncts Jupiter. Mon­day, Feb. 15: Morn­ing sloshes with emo­tion as Venus sex­tiles Pluto. Mem­o­ries fly by like flash­cards; ob­serve and feel, but don’t hook into old sto­ries. A steady­ing Mars-Saturn sex­tile can help us find terra firma in work. De­lays may be for­tu­nate. Tues­day, Feb. 16: Gears shift, edges sharpen, and speed in­creases as the moon con­juncts Uranus and then en­ters Aries. Our in­ner coy­ote wig­gles out from un­der any ex­pec­ta­tions. There will be nervy act­ing out tonight as Mer­cury semisquares Uranus; con­sider all pos­si­bil­i­ties, but don’t be­lieve ex­treme thoughts. Be cau­tious around sparks of all types. Wed­nes­day, Feb. 17: If a tough night leaves us broody as the moon op­poses Saturn and squares Pluto, we can pour that mood into un­sa­vory chores and put it to good use. Avoid those looking for a fight. En­ergy flows bet­ter this af­ter­noon— com­mu­ni­ca­tion re­lieves block­ages. Talk now; evening fogs out. Thurs­day, Feb. 18: We run hot and cold as the sun en­ters in­tu­itive Pisces with the moon in action-ori­ented Aries. If we have to act on some­thing that tugs our hearts, let’s move slowly and feel for solid ground. Work on the dream tonight.
