Aries: As you contemplate Valentine's Day approaching, you may feel more love for business & career success than romance.

Taurus: Someone introduces you to a new philosophy, changes your world view, or challenges you to follow a hidden passion.

Gemini: You feel that your hard work is not bringing recognition or customers in equal measure. Change the delivery or product.

Cancer: You may yearn for some romance, but work, or work at home, is equally stimulating & ultimately - too distracting.

Leo: "If it ain't broke - don't fix it" & "MYOB" today. Work or home is happier if you maintain status quo, go with the flow.

Virgo: You may want something very much but are hesitant to make big financial changes in order to get it. Weigh pros & cons.

Libra: A romantic partner, or your own desire for change & new experiences, can upset your internal stability or home life.

Scorpio: If you stand firm on what you think & refuse to bend, other things may react. Work or your body could feel stressed.

Sagittarius: It takes will power to resist impulsive or excessive spending. Cost won't determine the effectiveness of a Valentine gift.

Capricorn: You find a friend or organization supports your ideas or plans more than family, who may fear you will change.

Aquarius: You know what you excel at in work or career, but how to be recognized or increase sales or demand needs addressing.

Pisces: Let reason, not idealism, help you choose wisely in money, business, or alliances. Dig deep for facts or concrete proof.

Today is the day before Valentine's Day, and for many of us, thoughts turn to love. The planets are serving a pot luck of energy that can make your view of relationship in general or your own relationship, specifically, swing wildly. The moon is in the intense, secretive, mysterious and perceptive fixed water sign of Scorpio today. Scorpio often sees things in extreme - all or nothing - and tends to either push away or protect itself from interaction or tries to control interactions without actually allowing itself to be vulnerable or approachable. The Scorpio moon forms a supportive sextile to Scorpio's own ruling planet - Pluto - in the reserved, cardinal earth sign of Capricorn. Meanwhile, Pluto in Capricorn is challenging the independent, self assertive, slightly erratic and selfish Venus/Uranus conjunction in the fire sign of Aries, which says, "I am." Venus/Uranus in Aries are also activated by a quincunx to Saturn (Capricorn's ruling planet) in the relationship minded air sign of Libra. And Saturn in Libra trines both Mercury (the mind) in freedom loving, friendly Aquarius, and romantic, dreamy Neptune in Pisces. Things may not be what they appear to be or people may not see things the same way now. Some may have strong hopes or expectations while others are resisting the expectations or feelings of "should". There may also be strong emotions of jealousy, possessiveness, fear of loss or rejection, or selfishness. Like poor Pepe L'Pew who chases Penelope Pussycat, some lovers - or wanna be lovers - may not be reading signals correctly now. To make the most of some stressful love aspects today and tomorrow, release your own expectations and appreciate love in all its forms of expression - not just romantic. How can you love yourself more or be a more loving person? If you are fretting over what to give a lover this Valentine's Day, why not ask them directly or suggest that the both of you plan a Valentine celebration together? Or make reservations to attend a Valentine dinner or party event that focus more on entertainment, fun and friendship to stay as safe and neutral as possible. Today "we" is easier to navigate in or as a group than as two individuals.
