Aries Moon Rules Valentine’s Day

The passionate Aries moon rules this day of hearts, encouraging bold expression and surprises. Typically, the Aries moon is ready to do battle on a moment’s notice, so this is no time to disappoint your love. If you’re not sure how to celebrate the special people in your life, keep this in mind: It’s better to do too much than too little.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You have no fear of saying “I love you,” but you don’t want to say it so much that it loses its specialness and meaning. Today you could say it a million times, and it would still be just as fresh as the first time.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Arrange to meet your loved ones somewhere new — preferably a place you’ve never been before. Completely fresh experiences will be the luckiest kind.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your sign mate Marilyn Monroe famously said that the one who couldn’t handle her at her worst didn’t deserve her at her best. Today you’ll reward the ones who love the full spectrum of you by giving your very best.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Small gestures will be greatly rewarding. The simple act of holding hands or smiling into each other’s eyes will have a profound impact on the development of a relationship.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your relationships thrive because you take the time and make the effort to create an environment of trust and mutual admiration. Now you’ll enjoy the benefits of that work.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You work to make your relationships special every day and don’t need outsiders to tell you when to celebrate those you love. However, this holiday is just the excuse you needed to go all-out.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Romantic love may be deep and intense, but other kinds of ties are just as important to you, if not more so. You’ll be fascinated by the many forms your affections take.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). One ancient proverb suggests that love is a high form of tolerance. You strive for something far more active. Your heart will reach greater heights of joy because you believe it’s possible.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You love the chance to recognize those who put the color in your cheeks and a fire in your eye. The only bad part is that the time you spend together seems to go by too quickly.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Because you concern yourself mostly with giving to others, the reality of today is better than your dreams of yesterday. This is the life you deserve. Your perspective makes this possible.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your sweetness will be appreciated, and so will the other tones of your choosing. Your personality has many colors that are beautiful to those who know and love you well.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). When it’s your turn to take a solo, you do an amazing job. But at your core, you’re really not a solo instrument. You work brilliantly in concert with others, playfully harmonizing to create works of beauty.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 14). Valentine’s baby, you’ll use your creative gifts to delight your loved ones and win new fans this year. Your soulful words will resonate on multiple levels, uniting people and sparking their imaginations. Next month brings career advancement. April and June are your windfall months. Moves happen in October. Gemini and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 20, 11, 39 and 48.

LOVE AND THE EARTH SIGNS: Is your valentine an earth sign? If so, you likely feel lucky to be involved with one so sensual, genuine and trustworthy. The description “salt of the earth” or “down to earth” is fitting for Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn people, because these signs tend to be authentically good and inclined toward right action. As a rule, they dislike drama and complication and don’t equate those qualities with love at all. They gravitate toward mutually supportive relationships and believe that people should work together for higher purposes than simply being happy or being in love. Earth signs build relationships by working with their loved ones to build something that’s bigger than the relationship itself.

But don’t get the wrong impression that these signs are all work and no frivolity. They need play as much as anyone; however, they prefer even their play to have a clear purpose. Making things (like music, art, food and domestic niceties) is a pleasure for earth signs. Also, they appreciate whatever you make for them. So busy your hands with some homemade fun for your earth-sign valentine, and your efforts will make them feel totally loved.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Rob Thomas is the first songwriter in the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame to receive the Starlight Award — for contributing a lasting musical influence that’s rare for one so young. Besides his hits with Matchbox Twenty, the Aquarian prodigy has collaborated with Mick Jagger, Willie Nelson and Santana, to name a few. Thomas’ natal sun, moon and Mercury are all in musical Aquarius.
