Your 2022 Valentine’s Day Horoscope Is Here, & It’s All About Self-Love

·7-min read

Traditionally, Valentine’s Day is a time in which we receive love letters, chocolates and flowers from paramours, crushes and lovers. This year, Cupid is aiming to help us discover our truest and deepest selves by allowing us to forge a strong relationship with the most important, wonderful, and amazing person in our lives: OURSELVES. Now, we can have a thrilling, exciting, intoxicating love affair with the person in our lives who matters the most — the one looking back at us in the mirror.

The astrology of Valentine’s Day is asking us to make serious changes, due to the planetary alignment with Pluto and the Nodes of Destiny, which is refreshing our perspectives and urging us to take radical steps towards self-acceptance and self-love. On the 13th, healing centaur Chiron shares a minor aspect with the Sun, giving us the chance to mend and evolve our hearts. That sets us up nicely when, on the following day, the Sun squares the Nodes of Destiny, pushing us to put ourselves first in our lives. After all, we are the main characters in our narratives — not anyone else.

Also worth noting: On Valentine’s Day, two days before the full moon, the moon (which dictates the emotional flavour of the day) moves from nurturing Cancer to radiant Leo, urging us to give ourselves more TLC. So if you were planning on any displays of affection this month, make sure you’re the first and most important recipient on your list. Finally, Mercury reenters Aquarius, taking us back to the promises that we made to ourselves before the recent retrograde and the start of the New Year and giving us a second shot at fulfilling them.

To get a sense of how you can best show yourself love this year, read your sun, moon, and rising sign here.

<strong><h2>Aries </h2></strong>It’s easy for you to get caught up in what everyone else is doing and fall down the rabbit hole of other people. The truth is that you should be focusing solely on your endeavours to make your life better. The more attention you give to your pursuits, the easier it will be to attain them. It doesn’t matter who comes in first place in office sales or wins <a href="https://www.refinery29.com/en-gb/2022/01/10822488/career-horoscope-2022" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:employee of the month" class="link ">employee of the month</a>.

<strong><h2>Taurus</h2></strong>You don’t easily run away from problems, which makes you a very loyal and dedicated friend. The best way to honour your awesomeness is to acknowledge that you are the pal who fights and advocates for those you care about. Being someone who is willing to put their needs aside and give their all to another is something that should be applauded. Your big heart and ability to love goes a long way — it’s something that you should always acknowledge and adore about yourself.

<strong><h2>Gemini </h2></strong>Your mind can race a million miles a minute, making you worry and stress about things that haven’t transpired yet — nor will they probably ever.

Incorporating this belief in your life allows you to have a deeper level of happiness, connection and fulfillment, especially with yourself.

<strong><h2>Virgo </h2></strong>It’s easy for you to critique every little thing about yourself. After all, you are a perfectionist by nature. If you look deep within, though, you’ll begin to see that the things you think are flaws are the most beautiful parts of yourself. Learning to love yourself is a lifelong process, so focus on getting there one day at a time. It will be easy as long as you give yourself the compassion and kindness that you freely give to others (with some extra tenderness and care just for yourself).

<strong><h2>Sagittarius </h2></strong>You are one smart archer, which is why you should own your never-ending intellect and insights. Rather than let people belittle you when it comes to information, data, knowledge, and trivia, show off your smart side by owning the conversation and letting others know in a friendly way that you know the score — plus more. If that means geeking out to Star Wars facts or conspiracy theories from Archive 81 or quoting Virginia Woolf, then so be it. Whatever your passion is, be confident in your brain power.
