The Aquarius sun-Leo moon polarity this weekend is about love; the cool-headed Aquarian love of humanity in general and the fiery Lion's love of loving in its many manifestations, the more demonstrative and dramatic the better. So no matter what else is going on, give some thought, spend some time figuring out how and with whom you'll spend Valentine's Day. You'll probably get lucky because romantic Venus and generous Jupiter, the planets that can tweak the odds in your favor, are in a supportive sextile that day. You can also benefit from the opportunity offered while the creative sun and passionate Pluto sextile. The only aspect that might foul things up is the coupling of Mercury and explosive Uranus. Keep the wild ideas to yourself.
Aries: Mar. 20 - Apr. 19
Pack a bag, just in case. Once your Mars ruler crosses into gallivanting Gemini on the 17th, you could get a case of itchy feet and be only too eager to take off to anywhere at all. After Mars' six month confinement in down-to-earth Taurus, the treasurer of the zodiac, you should be ready for, if not exactly a hair-raising adventure, at least a valuable learning experience. As for Valentine's Day, if you're not semi-permanently attached or otherwise spoken for, then for that day and then some, check out what a warm-hearted Leo has to offer.
Taurus: Apr. 20 - May 20
You may already sense that there's a change in the wind, and that soon you'll be able to cut loose from a few of the ties that bind. But, hopefully, not from the folks who have your best interests at heart; they'll continue to be generous with their time, advice and resources until Thanksgiving. Valentine's Day can be particularly beneficial, especially if you share it with a Scorpio, Sagittarius or Capricorn. Even if a romantic evening isn't in the cards, even if it's just a friendly poker game, you'll have fun.
Gemini: May 21 - Jun. 20
Moments of sheer brilliance are not that rare when you're a certified genius. Even if you're merely a well-adjusted Twin of above average intelligence they seem to come with some regularity. This week's eureka moment could occur when your Mercury ruler merges with barrier-breaking Uranus on Valentine's Day. However, such synchronicity may cause some confusion. Are you finally realizing something you should have seen before? Was it obvious to other observers? Is your revelation the result of a romantic setting or is this the beginning of a bold experiment?
Cancer: Jun. 21 - Jul. 22
Happily for moonstruck Crabs and their lovers, the heartfelt Leo full moon is exact late Sunday night. Feel free to start your Valentine's Day celebration a few days earlier than the 14th. Why wait for a school night, a picky Virgo moon and an assortment of planetary aspects that could keep you from enjoying a romantic evening to the fullest? Plus sudden changes are to be expected whenever vocal Mercury and unpredictable Uranus conjunct as they will on Tuesday. Be careful that what you blurt out is what you mean to say.
Leo: Jul. 23 - Aug. 22
A Leo moon in effect from Friday night until early Monday could make your Valentine's Day 2006 celebration truly memorable. Add the edge that the full moon Sunday night gives to Lions and there's no reason to wait until the 14th to show your stuff. Well, maybe one: Tuesday is when your sun ruler in your Aquarius marriage house perfects a mutually beneficially sextile to passionate Pluto in your house of romance and creativity. Even with restrained Saturn in your sign, you couldn't ask for better auspices.
Virgo: Aug. 23 - Sep. 22
It might not seem intimate enough, but you may have a better time if neighbors, friends and co-workers were included in your Valentine's Day celebration. Too weird? Too social? Not really. Besides having a Virgo moon highlighting your finer qualities, on Tuesday your Mercury ruler and trend-setting Uranus meet in your Pisces house of partnerships. There's also a bunch of favorable aspects that day linking sociable Venus to generous Jupiter and regenerative Pluto to the humane Aquarius sun. Sounds like a charity event.
Libra: Sep. 23 - Oct. 22
Since it might be tough getting out of the house or at least getting your head out of domestic concerns, why not throw a party for St. Valentine at your place? While your Venus ruler in your domain of family and furnishings is on very favorable terms with prosperous Jupiter in your Scorpio money house, you probably won't mind the expense. Plus you'll also have the cheery Leo full moon this weekend lighting up both your Aquarius house of entertainment and the area where your peers congregate to sing your praises. A fine time for the social butterfly to emerge.
Scorpio: Oct. 23 - Nov. 21
Just one more week until your Mars co-ruler leaves Taurus, your cosmic complement, not to return for another two years. Better make the most of the long, strange trip independent Mars has taken you on during the last six months. Review the progress you've made with your working situation; also try to honestly assess your new, hopefully improved, way of dealing with past and present partners. Once Mars gets to the Twins, your interests could become more varied and, since the Gemini transit ends with Passover, short-lived.1
