February 14th, St. Valentines Day falls on a Sunday in 2016, a day when the moon will be passing through the sensual sign Taurus, also making a harmonious alignment to powerful Pluto.
This line-up makes me think of a substantial, hearty, candlelit meal with an abundance of roses (Taurus style) followed by undressing (Pluto god of the underworld is also ruler of undergarments don’t you know??!) And Mars is still in sexy Scorpio… Ahem.
Venus aligns with bountiful Jupiter, so love will flow in abundance via the sign of randy Capricorn the Seagoat (don’t let them fool you with their stoicism).
Mercury will sit at 0 degrees of detached, friendly Aquarius where the sun also shines, so the mental energy will be buzzing!
Get together for a Sunday brunch with the girls, it’s a great day for socialising during Aquarius season and eating, on this, the lunar day of relaxation and indulgence.
