Here, Ann-Louise Holland, Shamanic Homeopath Astrologer, reveals what your star sign has in store for the week of love, also known as the annual celebration that divides the nation like no other.
Valentine’s Day is swiftly upon us and whether you’ve got a hot date lined up at a romantic restaurant or a Galentine’s gathering in the diary, love will be in the air.
Venus, the planet of love, is in your own sign this Valentine’s, AND Juno, the marriage broker is in your house of relationships, so what are you waiting for Aries? The combination of this heart centred planet and the asteroid that promotes long term relationships are going to draw out your romantic side, so it’s time to turn up the dial on love and make a bold gesture to get what you want, or rather, who you want.
Venus is inviting you to take a pause from your busy work schedule and look at love and what it really means to you – is there room for a significant other on your ride? If not, start making plans for two, as at the same time Mars, the sex God, is opening doors of opportunity that it would be churlish to miss. This is all playing right into your hand, so you can up the love sexy stakes this Valentine and see what a pair of Mrs Miller’s hand made, vintage style stockings does for your heart and its intended target.
If you have ever been hurt before in love, this Valentine’s is time to let that go…love planet, Venus is sitting in your 12th house of the sub-conscious and the hidden, along with Chiron, the Wounded Healer. This doesn’t mean you are going to get hurt, no, these two planets want you to heal any old hurts that might be creeping their way into your current love options to make you feel like what happened before, will happen again.
Venus wants you to feel really good about yourself, so that you don’t repeat patterns, and Uranus in Taurus right now, is shaking your world to allow totally new (and maybe a little crazy) things to pan out, so you can forget these old and painful dynamics and draw in new love and new healthier life ideas. Taurus is the sign of the body and any sensual down time is your Valentine forte, healing the mind via the body with a fabulous body cream such as Zeg Vitamin D Body Cream, which is literally a ray of sunshine to smother yourself with, that no one can resist.
Are you ready for deeper love this Valentine Gemini? The Saturn Pluto conjunction has been urging you to take a serious look at where you might be avoiding intimacy with your more playful, light-hearted attitude, and instead, see the potential in making a deeper connection with someone special. Mars the planet of sex and personal ambition is all set to prompt you further into proper commitment, so it is time to consider what you really want in your life.
Venus the love planet joins up with Chiron the Wounded Healer in your social house for Valentine’s and the combination of these two is opening your eyes to where you might be wasting time and energy by spreading yourself so thinly across your social network.
