Friends? Lovers? You decide
Seismic shifts in your social sphere
Lava hot love sees you playing with fire!
Next week will bring something full circle for you, Aries. I have more to say about this in your February monthly forecast. As for the rest – well, you’ll just have to wait. Not that there isn’t already enough happening for you this week.
Both ruler Mars (13th) and Venus (16th), bookend Valentine’s Day for you. Mars conjunct Pluto in your 11th on the actual day itself makes love look lava hot. Rather than step on the floor you may confine you and that special someone to the bed instead.
There’s something you’re seeking to explore this week. A deeper connection perhaps? A different social circle? This could happen sooner rather than later thanks to Venus which also meets Pluto on the 17th. All bets are off now as while we usually say Venus in your 11th is more about friendship than love, we now have sexy Pluto in the mix. A hot and intense encounter could be the fire that you want to play with. Others could find themselves rubbing shoulders with VIP’s, the rich and powerful. Or with someone who is in a position to make things happen for you.
Conversely, you may just want to enjoy the company you’re keeping or the moment, but others may seem determined to push your buttons or go out of their way to test you. Has this happened before? If so, this may be the final time you allow them to ruin your vibe. If you’ve been friend-zoned you’re no longer hanging around in the hope things will change. Possibly due to your attention magnetically drawn elsewhere. Friendships are forged in the fires of transformation this week. As is love. What emerges may be newly minted even if its old. Or you allow it to be melted down so you can create something new.
In a nutshell: Ruler Mars’s encounter with Pluto promises lava hot V-Day action. Or could see you playing with fire thanks to an irresistible new element. Shifts around your social scene bring enticing encounters. Or fresh opportunities.

No more wavering – it’s decision time
The obvious choice is the one you need to make
Go all in
Are you in? Or are you out? It’s The Full Monty this Valentine’s week, Taurus when it comes to exposing what it is you are truly prepared to commit to. There will be no fence sitting (that usually belongs to the other Venus ruled sign of Libra!). You are in a determined and decisive mood. And oh-so-willing to do whatever it takes to bring about the result you want.
You’re acting with passion and persuasion this week. As well as long term love, this is your best week yet for career matters. Or any area that requires a commitment from you. Do keep in mind that sometimes committing means leaving just as it can you going all in. There will be no hesitation on your part however. Making the choice an easy one as Mars enters your 10th and meets Pluto on Valentine’s Day.
A key decision could be on the table around the future of you and someone else. It’s either right – or again, not. And this should be clear. Ruler Venus is the deciding factor in all of this. Be it going into something new or stepping away from what has been lived out. A game-changing offer could be the clear choice as Venus meets Pluto (17th). New career opportunities beckon if you are ready for more responsibility. Singles may snag the interest of someone successful or who just boosts their mojo in some way. Is s/he really going out with him/her? Are you part of the ultimate power couple or Them? You bet.
In a nutshell: Your decision this week is one that you will live with long-term, Taurus. The universe asks you for a commitment – one way or another. To that path or career. That passion, purpose or long term love. It’s sets your stock and your mojo. Think with your head, act from the heart.

Change your mind – change your world
Signs and symbols are your map to the stars
Head towards a freer, bigger love
Travel brings you more than just a change in perspective. It could change the entire course of your life, Gemini. As could saying yes to that opportunity when it arrives. Above all, heed the call to action as Mars meets Pluto in your 9th on Valentine’s Day.
Love comes in many forms. In this house eye-opening and possibly from far far away. Think big and think massive. Your 9th is all about the mass media, mass transportation, barriers and borders vanishing. Changes to your outlook. Learning, academia, the law, the great outdoors, exploration, people and businesses overseas, large animals – especially wolves and horses (black ones), this week. And taking that chance.
Watch for the appearance of anyone born under either the sign of Aries, Taurus, Libra or Scorpio. Or anyone connected to anything listed above. Also any signs or symbols associated with these. If so, they are signposts for you to follow.
You are just three months away from Jupiter’s game changing effect when it arrives in your sign in May. This week places the signposts on the road to freedom for you right where you can see them. Once Jupiter arrives, you’ll get a further turbo boost on that journey. Venus also enters your 9th this week and it too encounters Pluto on the 17th. That bigger love, that journey you undertake, the subject you study in depth, that offer or even for some, the conclusion of a legal matter, clears the road ahead towards something bigger, eye opening and breathtaking. Wherever you want to go – you can get there from here.
In a nutshell: Valentine’s week offers a bigger, life changing love experience. A release into something that opens your mind to greater possibilities. An offer or solution shifts your perspective. Far far away is oh so close now, Gemini.

Ain’t it crazy how you think
You’ve got your whole life planned
Just to find out it was never ever
In your hands, in your hands
Here’s the thing about change: sometimes we initiate it. Other times it just sneaks up on us. With Pluto now in your 8th house – don’t doubt for one moment that you can avoid it. So, you may as well dance in the fires of transformation, Cancer. Otherwise well – it’s out of your hands.
As you have now lived through Pluto’s transit of your 7th of partnerships and double acts, you should have unlocked the secret to harnessing Pluto’s alchemy. If not – here it is as Pluto’s transformational energy peaks in its ruling house in our charts: Do not resist. Surrender. The more we try to stop or control the changes, Pluto resorts to even more extreme measures. The moment we let go and say ‘I’m not going to try to stop this and in fact – resistance is futile’, is the moment Pluto releases us from the extreme crucible of change.
Do keep this in mind. See yourself in a co-creative partnership with Pluto to bring about changes you need which allow you to transcend limitations. Rather than remain imprisoned by them. These include your fears, issues around sex and inhibitions, money, resources and control. Pluto wants to hand you back your empowerment. Especially this V-Day week when it meets Mars – which also co-rules your 8th, on the 14th.
Asking for what you want. Setting clear boundaries, or simply undergoing a radical shift on an issue changes up how you see things. And the power it has over you. This could be your ultimate Valentine’s message. The one that changes up what you share and how close you can get with another for keeps.
Okay, singles. You sizzle. You scorch. You are sex on a stick. How are you going to work this? Are you scared to embrace fully those desires? Own them? Venus quickly follows Mars and entangles with Pluto on the 17th. This may be hotter than V-Day itself. Don’t forget all the ways change open up the way for more love to enter. You go from single to dating. That to commitment. Seeking a job to landing one. All changes. Embrace yours this Valentine’s week.
In a nutshell: Time to fly, butterfly. Without change you’d still be at hairy caterpillar stage! Redefine passion and explore your deeper, intimate needs. No boo to see you through this V-Day week? Remember – going from single to snared is also a change for the better!

The greatest thing you’ll ever learn
Is just to love, and be loved in return
Nature Boy. Nat King Cole
Let’s ask one of life’s big questions this V-Day week. Why are we here? The answer, dear glowing, heart-centered Leo, is love. Love is why we are here. To love and be loved in return. To have many experiences of love. So, mystery solved. Now – go do your love thing.
With Pluto now in your 7th of love and partnerships in all their many-splendoured forms, you are set for a 20 year cycle where you will experience the alchemical quality of love and its ability to transform. And yes, it starts this week with the arrival of Mars (13th) and Venus (16th) into Aquarius.
As the planets move into your 7th, they encounter Pluto. The 14th brings overwhelming, intense and all-embracing passion as Mars and Pluto meet. This is no ordinary love. It’s either Richter-scale earth-moving – or simply not registering. And yes, because it is authentic and nothing you can fake, this means it transcends Hallmark cards and flowers. They are mere trappings. Not that you don’t appreciate the romantic gestures. But what I am saying here, Leo, is what is behind them needs to be something that carries on far beyond the 14th.
Meltdown level lust as opposed to the other ‘l’ word may make this a Valentine’s to remember for you and that special someone. But again, your connection needs to be built on more than just a hot date night. It does promise to scorch for those of you who have felt things may have slipped into tepid temperatures lately. Fire it up, Leo!
It’s all part of this 20 year learning journey you are now embarking on. Even if at the start of it you are going it alone. Believe me – that will change and possibly sooner than you imagine. Venus is next into its ruling 7th (16th), and even Pluto has to bow to the power of love as Venus conjuncts it on the 17th. Next week brings an even more passion fuelled date which may throw Valentine’s into the shade. One duo, duet, double act or even duel, hits the target for you when it comes to loving this week. And being loved in return.
In a nutshell: You are entering the most profoundly powerful love and relationship cycle that you’ve experienced in – wait for it – 800 years, Leo! And to make the most of it – yes, all you need is love.

Just do it
Valentine or Palentine – it’s all love
Make some Mardi Gras magic!
If there is any sign ready to tackle any task – it’s you this week, Virgo. But let’s talk love first. Your most romantic day isn’t the 14th – but the 13th when Venus still in your 5th, vibes with Neptune in your partnership zone. Both your houses of love and attraction overflow with bliss, delicious indulgences, and the desire for emotional union. Pancake making, Mardi Gras magical love to be shared. Even if its just with a friend. Say Be My Palentine. It’s all love. So – don’t get hung up on having to celebrate on the 14th. You may choose your own loved-up date to do this instead.
Both Mars (13th) and Venus (16th) enter your 6th of all things Virgo-centric this week. As they do, they encounter Pluto. Mars meets Pluto on the 14th. And Venus on the 17th. These dates may see work take precedence over romance. One more reason to make the 13th extra special if you are able.
Pluto’s long term stay in your 6th will bring you total and powerful transformations around familiar themes: studies, bosses, co-workers, employers, employees if you are the boss – and your pets. Add to this list your supercharged intuition which guides you towards healthier choices. Or sends you on a journey to seek them out (You know how much you love to research and unearth the facts, Virgo!).
Do not hurry or skim the details on the 14th when Mars and Pluto meet. This could also see you face a key decision regarding your day job or changing up those habits. You opt for good decisions. Healthy choices in life, work and yes – love! Because love is the ultimate good medicine. Your daily dose for what you do each day gets changed to be more creative, rewarding and healing for you on the 17th when Venus meets Pluto. If you have been weighing up choices as to where you go from here or what’s simply best for you – now you know it for sure.
In a nutshell: Healthy love choices – and how you work them, feature this week. From work to those habits, you opt for what does you good. That doesn’t mean romance is on the back-burner. The 13th – pure indulgence, Virgo!

Creativity is contagious. Pass it on.
Something new is on it’s way. And whatever it is, you will look back later and realise this was the week that gave birth to it. With Pluto now in your 5th – and meeting Mars in here on the 14th – well, that could literally be the result come November of this ultra-passionate V-Day week. So, do take extra precautions if that’s not part of your plan!
Wear it red this week too. No matter what (or who) you are seeking to attract. Whether this is that opportunity or that lover. A splash somewhere acts like a lightning rod for your desires. It’s a symbol of the fire that’s burning within you. Your 5th is your house of creativity. Ruler Venus owns this and arrives in here on the 16th. Joining with Pluto the next day. Even if you have no-one special this week, direct your heat into creating that vision board, that on-going creative project or ways to showcase your unique way of blazing a trail and lighting up the sky. This will see something manifest from this.
This week is the firestarter. Next week could be even better. But even hotter than the 14th for you is the 17th and the Venus/Pluto conjunction. Save your best moves for this day, Libra. And watch for who or what begins to make its presence felt. Creativity is just one way love expresses itself. You may try that and several others this week. It simply serves so many ways to make love real.
In a nutshell: Others see you as a rising star or big influence – in all the best possible ways this week, Libra. The more you radiate, the more attention, love and future possibilities you create. Stars were born to shine. So are you this Pluto cycle.

Commit to something lasting
Create a community of loving souls
Love is knocking – do you let it in?
With both your rulers – Mars and Pluto, having a house party in your 4th this week, expect changes that allow more space for love to grow. Ancient ruler Mars isn’t a couch potato. It needs to take action. And to make things happen. Mars represents our leader within. The soul warrior aspect of ourselves.
Pluto rules your primal power. The fuel which unleashes all of those Mars qualities. Big, uncontainable energy is yours on the 14th when Mars and Pluto meet in your 4th. Best Valentine’s date? An activity or an evening where you and that fellow partner in crime plan your next move together.
Love your home. Love your family. A commitment to moving could be the result of this. Or changes which impact on your extended family or even your career, could give you the ignition to start those engines. If you are seeking a quieter, more romantic night to simply celebrate your love this week, do opt for the 13th when Venus still in your 3rd makes a loving angle to Neptune in your 5th. This is a hearts and flowers alignment. One that is receptive as opposed to action-based. It’s all in the timing – and also the kind of V-Day you have in mind, Scorpio.
Venus enters your 4th (16th) and meets Pluto the next day. This is your day for big, beautiful decisions. Move home, move in together, move jobs, find your place and your homecoming. Venus opens the way for this and gets head and heart working in sync. And if money has been the hold-up – this could just give you access to the resources you need. And that’s love too.
In a nutshell: Long term love. Of people and place. Of connections and country. Family and friends. Love moves in or moves you this Valentine’s cycle. All thanks to both your rulers in your 4th this week.

How far can that message go?
Say it and mean it
Take off with the love that makes you fly free!
Freeing yet unifying love is probably your ideal Valentine, Sag. And if you don’t find that with a person, you’ll seek it via your ideas and projects, what you do or even a place. Of course, if you can combine more than one of these elements into one incredible package – so much the better!
Togetherness talk puts you and a fellow free spirit on the same page this week. Yes, it could be that lover. Just it could just as easily be a colleague, business associate, teacher or even that sibling or neighbour. A conversation about a plan or where the two of you go from here, provides you with the high-octane momentum you need like others need oxygen. And yes, travel could easily take the place of a person now Pluto is in your 3rd.
Travel however is the only thing you’ll want to be ‘up in the air’ over this V-Day week. Your love metaphors are usually ‘journey’ and ‘adventure’. But that doesn’t mean you don’t need to know where you stand, Sag. Bold moves and questions will be initiated and asked this week in your need to get answers. As both Mars (13th) and Venus (16th), move into your 3rd, they meet Pluto. Watch for not just one party asking you to join them, but news that you are invited to join a company or something bigger.
The Mars/Pluto meeting of the 14th could see that V-Day message XXX-rated. Others push the envelope by asking a big question. Even if its just ‘Where do we go from here?’. The 17th could see both (or all), parties saying yes or wanting the same thing. Prepare for a result that sees two hearts sharing the same vision this week.
In a nutshell: What’s your love metaphor, Sag? Love is . . ? A journey? An adventure? An idea or Holy Grail you have to go in search of? If you seek the perfect travelling companion on your love quest – what you say could see them signing up for the trip!

Open up and receive
Make some Mardi Gras magic
Love warriors do it vulnerable!
If sweet nothings, poetry and roses are what you’re after this V-Day week, the 13th should be your day to share the love. Pancakes and Mardi Gras are the feel you’re going for. Lush, colourful, indulgent, flamboyant. Venus in your sign puts you at your most alluring on the 13th. It’s angle to Neptune, planet of inspiration, and higher, transcendent love in your 3rd, on this day removes any barriers to you expressing yourself. Your muse strikes when it comes to how you show someone you care.
Single and ready to mingle? You’ve a bold new take on dating now. Which perhaps has a lot to do with Pluto’s recent arrival in your self-worth sector. Whether your way of seeking a new mate is circulating or a swipe, you’re leaving behind hesitation. And those past patterns which have sabotaged you. Especially around self-protection due to your past.
This week sees Mars (13th) and Venus (16th), leave your sign. Venus rules your 2nd. As they enter this house they encounter Pluto. Mars on the 14th, and Venus on the 17th. The 14th could see you quite literally burn away any remaining barriers you put up between you and real love. If your style has been to push someone away, you take the risk of real vulnerability now. And let them in. You know without that step, love remains elusive and out of reach. Love your pain as in it lies your strength and your release. The 17th could see you grasp that prize! Watch carefully as this is your house of love and money. If one gets that open, loved-up vibe, the other will quickly follow.
In a nutshell: Ready to receive, Capricorn? It’s all very well to work on your ability to attract. But you have to let down those barriers when it turns up. You have the power too draw to you what you want now. Be brave, be open to love.

800 years in the making – here comes what you’ve been waiting for
Every little thing you do – magic
Right time and born under the right sign!
Keep this between us, Aquarius. There are basically only two zodiac signs this V-Day week. Aquarians – and those who wish they were Aquarians!
You begin a personal cycle like no other this birthday season. A once in an 800 year opportunity to become who you were always destined to be. Pluto promises soul alchemy, transformation and the ability to change your fate now it has arrived in your sign. This week sees it joined by Mars (13th) and Venus (16th). First – you’re reclaiming something lost. Perhaps the magic or simply self-belief on the 13th when Venus still in your 12th, aligns to Neptune in your 2nd house. You see the best Valentine’s gift you can give to yourself is to reclaim or revive this. And yes, seeing that you should never have let it go in the first place is part of your process, Aquarius. Just don’t beat yourself up about it. The fact is – you’ve too much magic to create in the present.
You are your own masterpiece and work of art in progress now. Adjust your wavelength, your image, your look, your social media profile, your appearance, style and brand. This process may turn into an extended work in progress. Where you go through several fresh incarnations before deciding on the real you. Or the future you comes into focus which is a better way of looking at tis process.
Self-love rules. You radiate and sizzle. So, expect to entice when it comes to your interpersonal relationships, Aquarius. Look who or even what you draw to you on the 14th, when Mars and Pluto meet. The actions of that present partner or the potential one who appears, is in direct response to that dialled-up attraction you’re broadcasting. Demonstrating just how easily and powerfully you can work it.
The 17th may see you at your most captivating. And for many, it’s this day, not the 14th, that may serve the most breathless and validating love feedback. Venus and Pluto meet promising a beautiful, game-changing response from someone. Something powerful is pulling what you want towards you. Next week continues the theme, Aquarius!
In a nutshell: Who doesn’t want to be you right now?! Your personal love kung fu just happens to be the most magical and powerful of all the signs, Aquarius. You are on the cusp of creating something lasting. Don’t shy away from the destiny you can create this week.

Show some soul warrior love!
Romance and friendship intermingles
Leave the past behind. You don’t live there any more
You are in the cycle of the Soul Warrior now Pluto is in Aquarius and your 12th house. You’ll fearlessly go where angels fear to tread in search of how to achieve higher, more profound and lasting connections. Be this with a partner or just with interpersonal relationships in a broader sense.
And yes, of course – you’re just days away from your new cycle which begins next week. So, no wonder your focus on what’s gone before and what you want to create peaks now. Self-help, Tarot, astrology, Sufism, Buddhism, yoga, psychic readings, therapy, meditation or simply confronting the past head-on sees you reframe your experience, heal old wounds and ditch whatever prevents you from getting closer to others. Explore the many paths to wholeness and healing. This in turn leads to you being in control of your destiny. Which is the ultimate freedom that Pluto in your 12th promises you. Real self love – the love from which all other variants springs.
If you have an issue to raise with someone, you do it as an act of love as Mars reaches your 12th (13th), and meets Pluto on the 14th. This can also see you reaffirming those feelings. However – the 13th is your day to celebrate Mardi Gras magic or sweet, loved-up closeness whether this is with friends, that date or that current boo. All thanks to Venus in your 11th aligning to ruler Neptune. Someone with real future promise could appear for singles. Or that spiritually aligned friendship. How about both? The lover who is also your best friend? Isn’t that really what you’ve always been after?
Venus enters your 12th on the 16th and meets Pluto on the 17th. This changes the course of love for you from this point onwards. You may ditch an entire pattern, heal karma between you and another across lifetimes, or simply open yourself to something new. You are being prepared for the life-altering new beginnings that lie ahead for you in the next month. Just remember, sweet Pisces. Love needs an open door to enter. Open your heart wide.
In a nutshell: Extreme self-love begins with deep healing and a willingness to leave the past behind you. Use whatever calls to you to achieve this now. Wholeness and being open are your take-outs. Best day for romance? Flip your love story on the 13th!
