The Croft Magazine // The Croft’s resident clairvoyant reveals what the stars have in store for you this Valentine’s...
20 January – 18 February
The temptation to push someone you really like away may strike this month. It’s good to take time for yourself, but don’t miss an opportunity! The moon is shining on your house of partnerships over the Valentine’s weekend, making now the time to take a leap and let someone know how you feel: don’t let fear hold you back!
19 February – 20 March
You’re all about self-love and improvement this Valentine’s Day with the moon stirring up your house of health and routine. Where you might’ve been feeling despondent in relationships, your mindset switches to optimism: a sweet comment from someone you haven’t considered a romantic option opens up an exciting new conversation.
21 March – 19 April
You’re oozing attraction right now, and if you’re single Valentine’s brings plentiful opportunities. Someone you might’ve once dismissed could make a reappearance: maybe the timing will be right this time? If you’re in a relationship, things are reassuringly steady. Though you’re used to emotional rollercoasters, let yourself enjoy the comfort of stability!
20 April – 20 May
Your homely side kicks in over the Valentine’s period as the moon crosses your house of familiarity, and any dates you’re headed on are low-key and relaxed. If you’re planning something– whether it’s a celebration of a relationship of a gathering of your best friends, make it a cosy night in so you can really feel the love.
21 May – 20 June
Valentine’s is a very sexy day for you this year, with a collection of planets encouraging you to explore your sensual side and try something new. You’re after connection right now, and if you feel this is lacking, remember to communicate with those you love – no one can read your mind!
21 June – 22 July
Where relationships have felt up-in-the-air recently (thanks, Venus retrograde), things are clearer in time for the 14th. Boosting your feelings of self-worth is vital right now: remember you need to be comfortable on your own before getting involved with someone else. This is the perfect time to meet someone new, as a host of planets heat up your house of opportunity – equally, existing relationships gain new depth and passion.
23 July – 22 August
Someone is ready to show you, and the world, their affection this Valentine’s week. Luckily you’re keen on the spotlight, and where you’ve been feeling reclusive, you’re ready to leap back out of your shell. You love gifting, and whatever you give your sweetheart will be cherished: just remember there are other ways to show affection, so don’t be disappointed if your partner returns the favour in another love language.
23 August – 22 September
Mysteries of the heart reveal themselves over the Valentine’s weekend as the moon illuminates anything that’s been hidden. You’re magnetic right now, so don’t be surprised if you’re overwhelmed with invitations – if it’s too much, take some time to yourself: those who really matter will wait – or just revel in the attention!
23 September – 22 October
Your romantic side is never far from the surface, but you’re feeling the love more than ever this month. A surprise gift may be making its way to you, and if you’re dating, your partner goes above and beyond with a sweet gesture. If it’s a Galentine’s (or Brolentine’s??) day you’ve got planned, it’s sure to be a heartwarming occasion as the moon shines on your house of friendships.
23 October – 21 November
You’ve got multiple suitors this month, but you’ve only got eyes for one. If you’ve been trying to win someone’s heart, the planets project an optimistic energy: the timings for you and your sweetheart finally fall into place. Growth is essential to your self-esteem right now, so make sure you take time to yourself to do what you love as well as being there for others.
22 November – 21 December
Your confidence is blooming and you’re more than ready to get out and meet the whole of Bristol. Conversations flow effortlessly, and if you’re looking for love it’s likely to come from somewhere you wouldn’t expect: maybe someone you’re working on a project with, or end up sat next to on the bus.
22 December – 19 January
A host of planets heat up your sign this month, and you’re feeling passionate. Even if you usually hate Valentine’s, this year you find yourself keen to make plans. You’re inspired to take a risk in love, whether it’s asking someone out, calling it quits on something that’s not working, or even (please proceed with caution) meeting up with an ex.
