Unlike your Libra neighbors, Scorpios domestic situation at the moment is neither secure nor conducive to candlelit dinners at home. Mercury retrograde can disrupt the best-laid plans made via the mice on your desks and the men in your life. Youd be better off following loving Venus to a neighborhood venue where the goddess can work her charms without worrying something will go amiss. Know that on Valentines Day itself, your passionate Mars co-ruler perfects a rewarding trine with the life-giving sun.
How assertive will your partner become now that Mars is moving forward, albeit quite slowly, after 11 weeks retrograde? Especially when it comes to determining how your Valentines Day celebration will play out. Mr. Macho is particularly powerful on that day, so if you harbor desires of your own, make them known far enough in advance to affect your companions choices. Also make sure that between now and then, because Mercury is retrograde, nobody involved, e.g., the florist, the salesperson, mistakes what you want.
The solar eclipse in your Aquarius house of assets and acquisitions could keep you focused almost exclusively on money matters. Therefore, despite having romantic Venus in your sign, Valentines Day might not be that big a deal this year. Because youll be especially inventive during the next two weeks, youll find a way to express your love without spending big bucks. And since Mercury will still be retrograde, it shouldnt be difficult to come up with something from your past that will gladden your lovers heart.
If, sometime over the next two weeks, you want to hide out by yourself, it may be hard to find the time. While the sun is in Aquarius, you could feel that a psychic spotlight is tracking your every move, especially after the new moon/solar eclipse on the 6th. Although it comes out of retrograde on the 18th, Mercury doesnt leave Aquarius until March 14. Plus -- and this can significantly boost the popularity of the well-loved Water Bearer -- magnetic Venus enters your sign on the 17th and wont exit until March 12.
While retrograde Mercury merges with your Neptune ruler, itll be easier to understand what you have in mind. Since Fish tend to be more visual than verbal, this often isnt the case. However, while the two planets are in close quarters, why not use the Messenger to recite your poems or post your music video online? The Aquarius sun adds its creative power to your plans on the 10th when it conjuncts imaginative Neptune. Beautiful and compelling as your vision may be, remember to share it with your audience.
