Mercury and Jupiter align in Aquarius on this day of hearts, suggesting pink and yellow roses will be as plentiful as the red ones with the celebration of friendship, family and love in its many forms. Aquarian love is the sort that lifts humanity and expresses in evermore creative and innovative ways. As for passion, Jupiter makes sure to turn up the volume and many will be downright hyperbolic, sentiments best taken in stride.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Museums don't allow standing too close to the paintings, as it's a threat to the art and not ideal for the patron either. When viewed close, brush strokes can be seen, but not the subject matter. This week has you stepping back and back and back until the scale of a situation is comprehensible and manageable.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The place has not lost its inherent qualities, though the excitement has gone dormant for you, the novelty worn completely off. For someone new, it will vibrate with vitality. To see it that way again, invite those who haven't been there before and be a keenly observant witness to their discovery process.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The theme of the day can change at any moment you decide to take charge of it. When things start to go awry, shift the conversational topic. Aim the remote control at your thoughts and channel surf. Tell your heart to dial up a new station — one playing the sort of song that makes you light enough for spaceflight.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Many view the problem without seeing it or noticing much about the scene. They are the unthinking propagators of mediocrity at best, evil at worst. Not you. You're wide awake. It will be impossible for you to move through the week without responding to a fundamental moral imperative to improve matters.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You care a lot but don't want to seem like you do. Maybe it would feel conspicuous and embarrassing to seem eager, though anyone in your position would be, with something so desirable hanging in the balance. Showing some vulnerability is authentic, relatable and takes more courage than trying to hide it.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). While good conversation will flow between the usual suspects this week, if you want great conversation, open the circle to outsiders. Social discourse will be invigorated by the new blood. When a fresh face comes onto the scene, you're likely to learn a different side of even people you've known a long time.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It hurts to love more than they love back. Since you cannot control how much someone loves you, you can only restore balance by matching what is given to you. As for the extra — put it into a secret diary. Write it in a song. Bury it in the yard. Just don't give it where it's not well-received, or you're back to square one.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You are unique and extraordinary; however, your problem is not. There are untold numbers of people all around the world having the same issue right this very minute. Solutions abound and are readily available. Books, lectures, treatments... jump into it and start trying things out to see what works for you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The week is driven by unconscious emotions and desires and if you try to feed, calm, serve or solve these using logical answers you are bound for frustration. The heart has nonsensical solutions that take daring to try but you will be astounded at how quickly things can change with an experimental attitude.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Skipping ahead in relationships is like fast-forwarding a movie — set-ups get missed, the action makes less sense, a spirit of disconnection pervades. Don't hurry things. Settle into the process and take every step in order and you just might find that this plays out like a favorite movie.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You will close emotional distance by getting to know someone better. This is impossible to do when expectations run high. Assumptions about who someone is or who you want them to be definitely get in the way. When all that is dropped, an honest and true picture emerges.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You've had it both ways — seized opportunities and passed them up because you just weren't feeling it. Neither is more correct; it just depends on where you're at and where you're going. Decide what you're looking for and focus on it, so whichever way you want to go with opportunities, you won't regret it.
THIS WEEK'S BIRTHDAYS: Attracted to your shining soul, your support group grows without any effort from you. Angels drift into your life like they belong there and continue to lift you all year in various ways, including inspiration, coaching, mentorship and romance. You'll in turn provide another with care and guidance, not exactly paying it forward, just sharing what you know which comes naturally for you and happens to make you money at different points, too. Your financial style shifts to reflect the specialized knowledge you acquire this summer. Diversify, then double down on what works for you.
