We’ve all grown up with a story. A story of what a happily-ever-after should look like. And when reality fails to offer us this narrative, we feel betrayed on multiple levels. Could this be true in your case too? Are you feeling like you’ve somehow been let down by the grand plan? Here’s a little something from the Scorpio horoscope that will serve as a reminder to all of us, irrespective of our relationship status: This Valentine’s Day, it’s time to change the narrative a little. Let’s cultivate a deeper relationship with ourselves and engage in activities that evoke joy and laughter within. What you will discover in the process is that you are, above all, the source of your own happiness.
So what does the week of love have in store for the rest of the signs? Let’s hop in and find out.
There are so many oh-so-many ways to express your love! As many ways as there are people. In his book ‘The 5 Love Languages’, Gary Chapman describes them as: words of affirmation, physical touch, gifts, acts of service, and quality time. While you’re the kind of person who wants to spoil their partner with presents, your partner may or may not be on the same page. What they’re really craving right now is your presence and undivided attention. Having an open and honest conversation will help you meet each other halfway.
Relationships are complicated as it is. To add to it all, you’re having to deal with long distance. The communication issues are real, Taurus. But they’re not insurmountable. Find a system that works for you whilst leaving some room for play. Venusians who are in a situationship are being asked to get real with themselves. You are not somebody who does things halfway. So why start now? Have an open and honest conversation with the other person about what it is that you desire from this partnership.
Let us tell you a secret, Gemini: you are a master manifestor, capable of creating your best life. So, instead of giving into the story of lack, begin to believe with every fibre of your being that you are unlimited. That everything you dream of and desire is making its way into your existence, including a soulful partnership. Coupled Twins are being reminded of the power of communication. Beating around the bush is not going to get you anywhere. Talk about what’s really going on in your heart as you allow yourself to be vulnerable.
You’ve always been one for serious relationships, Cancer. You want it all and you don’t want to have to settle. But this chapter of your life is about letting go of the rigid rules and allowing yourself to explore the possibility of who you can be. The narrative of ‘friends first, then lovers’ will come in handy. But, don’t assume the other person knows what’s going on in your head or where you are. Three words: communicate, communicate, communicate. Leave no room for error.
Love don’t cost a thing, Leo. Love don’t cost a thing. So if you’re worried about how to woo your lover on a budget, we have some ideas. 1: Curate a picnic basket consisting of your favorite items and head to your roof or the nearest park. 2: Indulge in a sport that can be played as a pair, such as tennis or volleyball. 3: Go for a romantic walk around an undiscovered part of town. 4: Stay in. Cook something that evokes nostalgia. Watch your favorite movie together. 5: If you are separated by borders, write a letter expressing your innermost thoughts to the other.
Everything is transient, Virgo. Everything is transient. Today, you are deriving comfort from the inner knowing that in an ever-changing world, you are your only constant. That you’ll have your back no matter what transpires in the physical realm. This Valentine’s week, you’re being encouraged to take yourself out on a date and engage in the activities that awaken a feeling of joy and bliss. As for that on-again, off-again romance, you know better than to devote your time and energy to somebody who treats you like an option.
Discomfort is but a part of the process. The part of the process that makes us reassess our core values and where we stand in relation with other people. The good news is, you’re on the other side of the journey. You have stripped away the false beliefs that were keeping you from making space for fulfilling relationships. But, today is not about ‘the other’, Libra. It’s about deepening your self-love and devoting your time and energy to nurturing your inner sanctum.
We’ve all grown up with a story. A story of how a happily-ever-after should look. And when reality fails to offer us this narrative, we feel betrayed on multiple levels. Could this be true in your case too, Scorpio? Are you feeling a sense of failure because you have convinced yourself life has been unkind towards you? This Valentine’s week, change the narrative a little. Cultivate a deeper relationship with yourself. Engage in activities that evoke joy and laughter within. What you will discover in the process is that you are above all the source of your own happiness.
Oh, to be *this* love drunk, Sagittarius! Oh, to find somebody who not only understands you on a soul level, but also challenges you to be a better version of yourself every single day! There are so many things to be grateful for, and your relationship is certainly one of them. As for how to celebrate the day of love? Think something old school like a dinner, drinks and excerpts from your favorite book.
To make space for pleasure is to accept pain as a part of the narrative. To allow sadness is to understand that joy awaits on the other side of the bridge. This week, you’re recognizing the polarities that exist within and without you as you embrace the human experience in its entirety. In the realm of love, you understand that every ending is a beginning, and that every beginning will lead to an ending. So allow what needs to come undone to come undone. Heaven’s got a plan for you, beautiful.
Yes, yes, we get it. ‘Monogamy’ can seem a lot like ‘monotony’. It’s not a concept a free soul like yours resonates with. But have you consciously communicated your beliefs to your partner? Are you certain they’re on the same page as you with regards to the state of affairs? It’s time to have a conversation about the things that matter so that nobody brings unrealistic expectations into the equation.
It’s all about the wild and the unknown in the Pisces HQ this week. It’s all about unlearning the rules of courtship. It’s about falling madly in love with the other and allowing yourself to be consumed by passion. Oh, the things you will discover about yourself and the other person when you let go of your inhibitions! For some, spontaneous travel may be on the cards too. P.S.: Instead of going to your favorite place, venture out to a city that you’ve been meaning to explore together.
