Valentine’s day. A time when single people are reminded how single they are (as if that’s always a negative thing), and when people in relationships are pressured to do everything for their partner with elaborate gifts and chocolate-covered treats.
Astrologically, Valentine’s Day takes place right in the middle of Aquarius season, a sign that’s all against flashy, over-the-top displays of affection, so it’s ironic that this is what Cupid’s special day tends to entail.
The astrology for February 14 this year, in particular, is grandiose, heightening the festivities of this holiday for some and clashing with the astrological makeup of others. These three unlucky zodiac signs fall into this latter group on Valentine’s Day 2022.
On February 14, the Moon will pass through the fixed fire sign of Leo, heightening emotion in a vibrant and expressive way, while Mercury will simultaneously move into its sister sign, Aquarius.
This push-pull energy between these two zodiac signs will increase the need for personal attention and appreciation while emphasizing the desire to divert attention away from the self and into original thoughts and ideas that can be shared with the collective.
While this energy is incredibly favorable for some, Virgo, Capricorn, and Pisces will experience these transits through areas of their charts that are far less fortunate. Here’s how:
Instead of getting into the romantic spirit on this day, you’re likely to be much busier with your work and responsibilities, especially as the efficient sign of the zodiac.
The good thing is that this energy will support whatever projects you are working on. Just be sure to rest and reflect as needed. You can’t pour from an empty cup, so try to take care of yourself on this day.
As the Moon crosses your eighth house of boundaries, purposes, and shared resources, your top priority on Valentine’s Day will be less about eating as many chocolate-covered strawberries as possible, and more about setting and maintaining healthy boundaries in all of your relationships.
You tend to prioritize setting and achieving long-term goals, a quality that others can often acknowledge and take for granted.
Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to gauge how much you give to others versus how much you receive in return, especially since Mercury also moves through your second house of resources on this day.
Having a conversation about boundaries on February 14 is necessary, and it’s ultimately the best way to prioritize yourself. You deserve it.
As a water sign, you typically strive to express your emotions for others, but this year your Valentine’s Day will likely inspire you to draw your energy within as the Moon passes through your sixth house of work and physical health.
Your body tends to be incredibly sensitive to stress and lack of rest, and today is the perfect day to assess how much you’ve allowed yourself to recharge.
With Mercury also moving into your twelfth house of isolation on February 14, you’ll be inclined to review your mental health habits, making it the perfect day to spend some time in isolation.
