You couldn't ask for a more romantic guide to Valentine's Day than the Scorpio moon. Passion is Scorpio's forte, and it's not so shabby at stirring up the other kinds of love, either. There will be an abundance of truthful and creative expressions of affection. Do be cautious, though. "Safety first" is a good motto under the intense Scorpio moon.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You come alive in a small group and will steal the show with your charm. If you're not already planning to be around a few close friends, pull a last-minute soiree together.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Partners and friends may want more of your time than you expected to give. Keep the schedule loose, and you'll be able to accommodate the fun surprises and twists of the day.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Being enamored causes you to stretch your usual bounds of reason. You may act silly, believe the unbelievable or suddenly want with your heart instead of your head.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Not wanting to perpetuate generic sentiments, you'll find a way to celebrate this holiday that highlights the unique way you give your love. You'll excel at this creative challenge.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Even when your activities are relatively down to earth, exciting escapes and miraculous fantasies dominate your thoughts. Tonight's rendezvous turns out even better than you could have planned.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your presence is calming, your warmth disarming. The one who's always "on" will feel comfortable enough to relax and be real around you. Tonight's conversation reveals deep affection.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You have many people to please, and you don't want to leave anyone out. Be careful not to spend so much time on your large circle of friends and family that you neglect the tight circle of your nearest and dearest.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You're not one for sappy sentiments. You say the honest truth, and it will be the most loving and affectionate expression anyone could want to hear. Tonight features a sit-down dinner and lively conversation.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have a plan, but you're always willing to ditch it for something with exciting promise. Unexpected twists of plot will carry you into the arms of love.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You have a way of inspiring others to bring their "A" game. Tonight: You may be moved to spend your money on something you didn't used to consider valuable.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). In an act that blends your musical and emotional intelligence, you'll learn the song that's inside the heart of your love so you can sing it back in quiet moments.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You know that you will change and so will your relationship. You endeavor to take those changes in a positive direction. You welcome the chance to make romance a priority.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 14). You'll dare to dream and create the future. Next month brings greater self-discipline and a new fitness regimen. You'll love the boost you get from helpful people in April. This summer, someone treats you like a special date — again and again. It will feel lovely to be cherished. New financial avenues open up in June. Taurus and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 50, 7, 22 and 19.
