cupid_asleep valentines1It’s mid-February and Cupid is alive and well. Hearts and flowers, chocolate, hugs and kisses. Whether you are in a committed relationship, exploring casual romance or free to find your heart’s desire, this day is perennially one that aims arrows of love straight to your heart.

The heart. The center of our physical life, the chakra where we feel, are inspired and directed. It has a deep sense of knowing, a wisdom that transcends reason and thought. It is the center of our being, the place we hold our love, hopes and dreams. Precious and magnificent, courageous and strong, the heart is our hero, king and queen, mother and father, lover and friend.

house of blues4This year, the Aquarius/Leo full Moon takes place on Valentine’s Day, shimmering silvery moonrays upon us all. Romantic and enigmatic, a puzzle and masterpiece, this heartfelt holiday lunation promises joy, intrigue and wonder. With velvet Venus recently direct in crafty Capricorn and messenger Mercury now retrograde in the late degrees of egalitarian Aquarius, we may find ourselves reminiscing about our romantic past, examining the truth and value of our relationships and behaviors. Did we give our best? Were we honest and true to ourselves and others, fair and equitable, affectionate and available to the ones we loved? And what about today? Where are our hearts?

This is a fabulous time for friendship, full of magical moments and powerful possibilities. A time for living and loving, finding and following our hearts. Good luck, good love and may the memories; magic and magnificence of St. Valentine carry you through the week and month. Happy, happy day, full Moon and month of joy, peace and love. Give your heart.

Aries (Mar. 20-Apr.19) Co-ruled by Saturn and Uranus, Aquarius honors and values law and conscience, responsibility and freedom, community and individuality. This week’s full Moon illuminates feelings of friendship and camaraderie, encouraging heart-centered honesty and expressions of love. Finding balance is key to living well. Cultivate integrity, demonstrate equality.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20) The Aquarius/Leo full Moon illuminates issues of head and heart, asking us to find a balance and common denominator between the two. Passion needs a rational path to manifestation and desire must be tempered with patience. This week, take a good look at your goals. Balance them with a realistic assessment of self and situation. Self-care is number one. Take it easy.

Gemini (May 21-June 21) Valentines Day ignites the spirit and fans flames of fun and romance for flirty Twins. For those who prefer mutually exclusive relationships, it’s the perfect time to give and share love via clever cards and inventive gifts. For those who don’t, the sky is the limit. And with an especially rich full Moon on board, don’t forget friends and family. Express your heart.

Cancer (June 21-July 22) You may be surprised by the love and affection coming your way via lovers, friends and family. Even people on the street seem to smile and shine when you walk by. Congratulations! Jupiter and Venus are dancing in duet, shimmering beauty and grace upon your path. Count your blessings, feel the grace and express the gratitude you feel, heart and soul.

Leo (July 23-Aug.22) The Sun in Aquarius opposes the Moon in Leo on Valentines Day this year, opening your heart to the abundant, vibrant love and life on planet Earth. You see the wide expanse of unlimited potential and possibility shimmering all around you. People and places shine with goodness; it’s yours for the taking. Ground yourself with love, follow your heart.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep.22) As the last week of Aquarius winds its way toward Pisces, find your grace in the progressive practice of self-improvement. Accept rather than criticize, embrace rather than shun. Compassion and loving-kindness are allies. Negative thinking and caustic speech are not. Slow down when you are rushing, listen rather than talk. Love rather than hate. Cultivate peace.

Libra (Sep. 23-Oct. 22) Valentines Day full Moon rising glimmers love and light upon your path, the stars align in grace and gratitude as you walk a path of beauty and humility. No room these days for inflated heads, careless speech and selfish acts. True love is sacred, hearts are strong and truth is holy. Listen to your heart and follow its wisdom. Reach out and touch the light.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) Dynamic, powerful and full of passion, the full Moon light of love and humanity shimmers into your heart and soul. Somewhere, deep down inside, you feel the foundational essence of authentic power – truth, integrity and equanimity. And yet, there is so much inequity and injustice in our world. Be the change you want the world to be. Lead by example.

Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 20) Higher self-being and heartfelt living are dictums for you now. Principles of the Aquarian Age ring true as the Valentine full Moon resonates with themes of universal brotherhood and sisterhood. And yet, the hard-core reality of class, race and economic inequality and prejudice haunts your idealistic heart. Don’t give up. Live your truth, be the best you can be.

Capricorn (Dec. 21-Jan. 19) You may feel somewhat powerless in the face of inevitable geophysical, social, political and economic flux and change. No worries, there is nothing that you do personally to control the outcome. Simply stand up for what you know is right, live fully in the present, take action when necessary and lean back when appropriate. One day at a time. It works.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Soul and spirit embrace in the dance of unity in diversity as the Sun and Moon align in the opposition aspect of an Aquarius/Leo full Moon. As the winter “party Moon” comes to fruition on Cupid’s favorite holiday, you may feel the power of love and the joy of life deep within your heart and soul. As minds and charkas open, remain centered in spirit. Be true to you.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Retrograde Mercury in your solar 12th house of soul and spirit fills hearts with compassion and loving-kindness as the Moon grows full. Find quiet, peaceful places to breathe deep, appreciate natural beauty and connect with the powers of divine grace. Relax, review and regenerate body and mind. Get plenty of rest; cultivate inner peace and practice forgiveness.
