Your Ancient Symbol Card for February 18th is Love

Your Ancient Symbol Card for Today

Love

Love indicates that love is either present in our life or a distinct possibility. Be open to all possibilities, remembering that true love is given freely, without condition, and does not have to be earned. This is the kind of love we want to welcome into our life and to give to others. Be open to new ideas, and beware of judging against someone in an unloving manner. When Love appears, return to the place where you can love yourself and then seek out the same love from others.

As a daily card, Love suggests that for those who are currently in a relationship the opportunity to deepen the bond is present. For those who are single, Love implies that the prospect for them to begin a romantic relationship is very strong at this time.

Your Love Horoscopes for the Week of February 17th

Fairy tale romance will be at an all-time high on Tuesday, when the Sun enters Pisces. With the Sun in the sign that illuminates absolute, spiritual love, it’s possible that everyone will focus on what makes their sweetheart beautiful now. In order to love fully, one must love without condition — and that is the lesson of Pisces. Now is the time to sprinkle pixie dust on your love life and make a wish! On Wednesday, however, Mercury Retrograde will square off with Saturn, and you might feel less confident revealing your deepest secrets to your mate. Will it bring you closer, or will it be used as ammunition at a later time? That is the question you’ll wrestle with.

Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Spiritual love will be on your mind after Tuesday, but there might be a dark side to these thoughts. If you’re convinced that the only way to truly love someone is by sacrificing yourself, then you’re sabotaging the vast well of romantic potential. You might be keeping love at arm’s length because you’re convinced that the pain and suffering connected to love just isn’t worth it. Perhaps it’s time to erase this script and write a new one. Start by tuning out what a friend has to say about matters of the heart on Wednesday. Don’t allow his or her baggage to become yours.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

If you’re single and looking for love, beware of the potential to search for romance on the Internet with complete naiveté. You may be susceptible to someone’s catchy — but embellished — profile on a dating website. In fact, your longing for romance might be so strong that you ignore all of your instincts. Avoid the common Internet dating mishaps, and if you’re ready to meet someone who has passed round one of testing, be certain to do so at a public place. That way, if your potential dream date turns out to be a frog you won’t be as distressed.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

Monday and Tuesday will be your best days for romance this week. That’s because the sensitive Moon will move through your true love sector during this time — a pattern that allows you to feel more open. Not only will you give love freely, but you’ll also give yourself permission to accept it. By Wednesday, however, it’s likely you’ll be in a serious frame of mind, which may not leave much room for sentiment. Expect distraction at the workplace.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

Emotional sensitivity may flare up as you and your sweetheart have a conversation that leaves you feeling anything but warm and fuzzy inside. In fact, this talk might feel like your lover went from having a heart of gold to a heart of stone. Not only will there be cold words that you feel are inconsiderate, but you’ll feel so hypersensitive that it makes you take them extra personally. Hopefully, you’ll chalk this up to a bad day your honey had. If not, he or she will definitely have some explaining to do!

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You might notice your mind wandering more than usual this week. In particular, it appears you’ll be consumed with an erotic fantasy that may involve your current lover — or possibly someone you wish was your lover. There’s nothing wrong with a little daydreaming every now and then, but you might want to keep things in check if you notice that you’re forgetting to tend to the current reality of your relationship. On Wednesday, especially, it’s likely to require your attention.

 

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Expect to shine a bright light on your partner after Tuesday, thanks to the Sun entering your relationship sector. You’ll have an opportunity to breathe new life into your love connection as you and your mate explore the more spiritual side of your union. Now will be a great time to enjoy the arts together. Take in a concert, art show or film. You’re likely to feel an urge to connect in a way that’s beyond the physical realm now. Reach for it.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You’re probably not going to have an easy time convincing your sweetheart to learn from your example about money matters. These days, you’re extremely frugal, and that’s likely due to necessity. Perhaps you’re saving up for a major purchase, such as a home, car or other investment. Or, it’s possible you’ve experienced a downsizing in your income and as a result must reprioritize your spending. Unfortunately, it appears that your lover isn’t supporting you along this thrifty vein this week. You won’t appreciate it.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

After Tuesday, you might put your best foot forward in an effort to find — and keep — that one true love. The Sun will begin its annual tour through your romance sector, shining a light on your ability to experience joy and love. You’ll also yearn for a lover who craves a spiritual, as well as physical, bond. Lovemaking will become more of a transcendental experience if you’re in a relationship. Go ahead, get lost in each other’s eyes. After all, they’re the window to the soul.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You might ache to share the deepest parts of your soul with someone special, yet find yourself unable to open up. What’s going on? Are you afraid of rejection, or of revealing something about yourself that your lover might deem as too ugly to appreciate? Have you actually been rejected in the past for communicating exactly who you are? If so, you might be extra anxious and convinced that history will repeat itself. Push past this fear if you ever hope to achieve true intimacy with your mate.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Communicating the romantic inside of you will be easier than usual this week. In fact, you’re likely to dream up a fairy tale. Whether real or imagined, you’ll get more joy out of this story if you keep it to yourself. A friend is likely to harsh your mellow on Wednesday, and the last thing you’ll want to do is share your romantic musings with him or her. Still, he or she may need your support, so if you’re able to tear yourself away from listening to those love songs for a bit, do so.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You may feel as if you can’t get a word in edgewise during conversations with your partner. Part of the problem may be that you’re having greater difficulty clarifying what it is you want to say. As a result, you may appear to stumble in your words, which your mate finds frustrating. Try not to allow this temporary block to unravel you. It might be a better idea to write your thoughts down first. Even better: Save important conversations for after the end of the month.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

As much as you might hope to discuss one of your anxieties with your partner, it’s possible he or she won’t be receptive to it now. Another potential rub in your relationship bliss may be that you begin to notice a fundamental difference in your spiritual beliefs. Before you panic, take the time to think through whether or not this is a deal breaker, or if it’s an opportunity to open your mind up to a new vantage point.

Daily OM for February 14th – A Gift of the Heart

A Gift of the Heart
Letting People Know You Love Them

by Madisyn Taylor

If you love someone, let them know.

It’s easy to take our feelings for granted and to assume that the people we care about know how we feel about them. But while those we love are often quite cognizant of our feelings, saying “I love you is a gift we should give to our loved ones whenever we can. Letting people know you love them is an important part of nurturing any kind of loving relationship. Few people tire of being told they are loved, and saying “I love you can make a world of difference in someone’s life, take a relationship to a new level, or reaffirm and strengthen a steady bond. Everyone needs to hear the words “I love you. Three simple words I – Love – You. When you declare your love for someone you admit to them that you care for them in the most significant way.

It can be difficult to express your love using words, particularly if you grew up around people that never expressed their affection verbally. But you should never be afraid to say “I love you or worry that doing so will thrust you into a position of excessive vulnerability. It is important to share your feelings with those that matter to you. Part of the fulfillment that comes with loving someone is telling them that you love them. Besides, love exists to be expressed, not withheld.

If you love someone, let them know. Don’t be afraid of the strength of your emotions or worry that your loved one won’t feel the same way. Besides, the words “I love you are often best said to another without expectation of a return investment. As each one of us is filled with an abundance of love, there is never any worry that you’ll run out of love if your expression of love isn’t said back to you. Saying “I love you is a gift of the heart sent directly via words to the heart of a recipient. Even though it may not always look that way, love from the heart is an offering that is always unconditional and given without strings attached. That is the true essence of the gift of “I love you.”

Your Daily Horoscopes for Friday, February 14th

Romance takes center stage today, but not just because it’s Valentine’s Day. The dramatic Leo Full Moon at 6:53 pm EST focuses our attention on issues of the heart. But the conceptual Aquarius Sun shifts the spotlight from personal love to a more social context. A lunar square to stern Saturn can harden our feelings and make us question relationships in general. Thankfully, the Sun’s trine to superhero Mars could save the day with a happy ending.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You have high hopes and are willing to take a risk to fulfill your heart’s wishes today. You might not want to take no for an answer because the exuberant Leo Full Moon in your 5th House of Romance encourages you to expect too much from love. Tempering your dreams with a bit of realism may be enough to prevent disillusionment in relationships. Persistence may work in your favor now as long as you remember to be sensitive to the feelings of others.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

Although jumping on a plane might not be possible now, you are still tempted to escape by going somewhere far away in your mind. But this is a time to be practical, not dreamy when it comes to what really matters. The Leo Full Moon in your 4th House of Roots is a reflector that shines a bright light on family issues. Fantasies only distract you from the real love that could be found at home. Real emotional comfort is closer than you think.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You have a few tricks up your sleeve today when it comes to expressing your attraction to someone special. The playful Leo Full Moon highlights your 3rd House of Communication, inspiring you to take a chance when it comes to love. However, you could overdo it by getting carried away with your feelings. Being confident is one thing, but too much bravado on your part might spell an early end to your evening. Remember, a healthy interaction is a two-way street so be willing to receive as well as you give.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

There could be an upcoming change in your income status or, perhaps, a shift in a business partnership. The bright Leo Full Moon illuminates your 2nd House of Money, so you might be more concerned with the bottom line than you are with romance now. Nevertheless, look at everything in a broader context. Practice compassion for others who may be experiencing uncertain times, too. A quick reality check today will give you a more balanced perspective; money can’t buy you love.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You may need to show a bit of caution in the romance department today, even if you know exactly what you want. The melodramatic Leo Full Moon floods your 1st House of Personality, possibly stressing your relationships and temporarily turning your life inside out. You could become overly defensive if someone stands in your way, so remind yourself that it’s not necessary to express everything you feel. Waiting until tomorrow before saying what’s on your mind will probably be better off for everyone involved.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You might feel invisible today, especially if you think that someone special isn’t taking notice of you. Don’t fight the natural flow of energy as the Leo Full Moon illuminates your 12th House of Privacy, hiding your emotions from view. Nevertheless, your actions will still have the impact you want. Save the flowery speeches and love letters for some other time. Just let behavior do its magic. Even the most subtle gestures will have positive impact if your heart is in the right place.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You might decide to play it low key today and keep your personal feelings to yourself. However, you expressive Leo Moon falls in your 11th House of Social Networking, encouraging you to get involved with a group activity. Although you might resist at first, you’re like to find pleasure in your participation once you overcome your initial anxiety. Let go of your personal desires and melt into the group experience for now. Surprisingly, you can derive a great deal of emotional satisfaction by being part of something larger than yourself.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

People are likely to stand up and take notice of you today, but the recognition you receive may be professional rather than personal. Fortunately, the theatrical Leo Full Moon brightens your 10th House of Public Status, empowering you to reveal your feelings to someone special. You’re at the top of your game now and it’s rather easy for you to shift the focus from business to pleasure if you are romantically inclined. Don’t be afraid to make your move as long as you pay careful attention to the reactions you receive.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You might be dreaming of a trip with your partner or special friend, but travel plans could require extra attention today as circumstances change. Even the simplest of dinner plans may have to be modified at the last minute. Ultimately, the bold Leo Full Moon in your 9th House of Adventure reminds you to focus on your personal needs and do whatever it takes to reach your destination. The details may be unstable, but don’t lose sight of your goal. Following your bliss sometimes requires perseverance and hard work.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You may have to revisit a financial decision today that could alter you evening plans. Instead of making a unilateral decision, it’s smarter to check in with your friend or partner. It could take courage on your part to reveal your vulnerability, especially with the proud Leo Full Moon falling in your 8th House of Deep Sharing. Don’t slip into the trap of pretending that everything is fine if it’s not. Taking a risk and sharing your concerns could be the key to increased intimacy.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Don’t focus on your shortcomings today, especially if you’re worried that someone doesn’t like you as much as you like him or her. Today’s emotional Leo Full Moon in your 7th House of Relationships is opposite the Sun in your cerebral sign, reminding you of the sharp contrast between your subjective feelings and objective reality. Your performance might fall short of your expectations, but you may be judging yourself harsher than anyone else does. Simply doing the best you can will likely be more than enough.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Although someone you love might rain on your parade today, your positive attitude may be enough to chase the bad emotional weather away. However, you won’t find your way back to the sunny side of the street unless you take a chance and give your imagination free rein to explore a new avenues of expression. The Leo Full Moon is lighting up your 6th House of Details, so paying attention to the little things can make the difference between failure and success. A bit of forethought and follow-through goes a long way.

Kissy, Kissy, Kissy, Happy Valentine’s Day, My Sweets! ((Great Big Bear Hug))

Click here
You came into my life unexpectedly,
and everything took a turn for the better.
Your warm eyes, your laugh,
the sincere way you speak,
and the kindness you showed me,
all became a part of my life.

As you unfolded yourself to me,
I discovered more and more beauty.
I have never seen so much
gentleness in one person.
Without even knowing it,
you were slowly making a place
for yourself in my heart.

It used to seem so hard at times
to feel so close in a relationship.
But it’s so easy to feel close to you.
I can’t tell you how nice that feels.
I realize now that I had never known
what it meant to be loved
until I was loved by you.

Valentine’s Day: Another Kind of Love

Valentine’s Day: Another Kind of Love

Spread love to everyone during this Aquarian holiday

Jeff Jawer   Jeff Jawer on the topics of love, blogs, astrology, aquarius

Valentine’s Day is this Friday, February 14. The holiday that celebrates romantic love seems to have nothing to do with the saint for which it was named. Its association with amour began in the 14th century, about 1000 years after the death of St. Valentine. Although it’s a great way to sell chocolate and flowers and, hopefully, to open hearts, the astrological association with the holiday is almost as strange as its connection with a martyred priest.

The Sun is always in Aquarius on February 14. This is the sign of the Water-bearer but it’s not a sentimental Water sign. Aquarius is an Air sign characterized more by the head than the heart. Aquarius is about friendship, community and collective ideals rather than couples. It tends to be chilly, using the intellect to step back from the messy world of feelings to achieve understanding with the mind. Aquarian love is universal rather than personal and usually needs some emotional breathing space and independence to counter the confinement of intimacy.

Valentine’s Day, like Aquarius, is more about an idea than about reality. Its origins in the 14th Century reflect the romanticism of the Middle Ages … which was a model for spiritual rather than erotic love. (Robert Johnson’s book “We” is a good source of information on this subject.) Romantic yearning represented a desire for a divine connection, not personal pleasure. The partner was a symbol for God and the desire to experience sacred union. This model comes closer to Aquarius because it’s an ideal instead of a physical reality.

A higher plane

But the myth of romance has permeated culture for so many centuries that we’ve lost sight of its higher meaning. The unspoken expectation of becoming complete within a relationship is bound to produce disappointment. While personal love can be a delicious affirmation of our desirability, and intimacy serves as a bulwark against isolation, human partnerships usually fall short of our highest hopes. The familial, emotional, physical and financial connections we share within them have their divine moments but cannot confer immortality or answer life’s biggest metaphysical questions.

Romantic love comes with strings attached. Desire, jealousy, conflicting values and contrasting tastes are tests for even the most harmonious couples. Chocolate, flowers, champagne, a good dinner and great sex go a long way to erasing the illusion of our separateness but cannot eliminate it entirely. And depending on one person as the source of love is not an Aquarian formula for fulfillment … being part of a community is.

The sign of selfless love

One connection Aquarius has with romantic love is its opposition to Leo. The Lion is the sign of the heart and represents the personal experience of amour. It’s the rising of excitement we feel in the chest when someone arouses our feelings. It is the expression of affection that flatters others and warms ourselves. Yet if Leo is the heart, Aquarius is the circulatory system. The Water Bearer distributes, which is an important message about another kind of love. It is the love of humanity, called “agape” by the Greeks.

Agape aligns with Aquarius’ community consciousness and represents a less personal but equally noble expression of the human heart. Giving to others without expecting anything return is generosity of the highest order. It is a reminder that a truly Aquarian Valentine’s Day gift would be a contribution to a charity or acting as a volunteer for an organization. We can still give our chocolates and flowers for personal romance but contributing to people in other ways will make this day of love even more complete
