Sizzling Mars summits with secretive Pluto in unconventional Aquarius for Valentine’s Day 2024. What this “anything goes” meetup means for your Valentine’s Day horoscope!
Valentine’s Day 2024 Astrology: What’s Happening in the Stars to Shape Cupid’s Holiday?
On this Valentine’s Day (Wednesday, February 14, 2024), seductive Mars will rendezvous with secretive Pluto in Aquarius. This could make for an “anything goes” approach on Cupid’s holiday—with a caveat. These planets can be fiery (Mars) and possessive (Pluto). Wandering eyes and fuzzy boundaries are absolute no-gos this V-Day.
If your “anything goes” happens in the bedroom, of course, things could get spicy fast. From exploring taboos to confessing a fantasy, just keep your safe words at the ready if you consent to anything that pushes your envelope.
More practically speaking, Valentine’s Day 2024 is ripe for finding your power posse. When make-it-happen Mars gets in sync with strategic Pluto, uniting in team-driven Aquarius, power and charisma reach peak levels. If you’re extending the Galentine’s celebration into the 14th, there may not be a dry eye in the house. Talk about power-bonding!
Just be warned: with competitive vibes amplified, people may be quick to throw down labels like “bestie” or “my boo.” Assumptions are not advised in your Valentine’s Day horoscope.
When it comes to making plans: be proactive, assertive and take-charge. But make space for multiple (and diverse) perspectives. Even if it takes a little longer to reach consensus, do so before you buy the pricey tickets or make reservations at a restaurant one of you doesn’t love.
How Astrologically ‘On Brand’ Is This Holiday?
Valentine’s Day occurs annually during Aquarius season. While the Sun visits this sign (from approximately January 20 to February 18 each year), we tend to be more cool and logical than warm and expressive. We’re not saying Aquarian energy is unromantic, but its wooing begins through the mental connection. This heady, intellectual energy is more dispassionate than passionate, allowing us to pull back and be objective.
It’s always struck us as astrologically incorrect for Valentine’s Day—at least in its traditional form—to fall during liberated, independent Aquarius season. Is it somehow karmic that humans should celebrate love during a time that we’re meant to focus on our individuality? Just four short days later, the Sun moves into dreamy, fantasy-fueled Pisces. A teensy calendar nudge and this lover’s holiday would be right on brand!
Pro tip: If you can bump your celebrations forward to the week of February 19, you’re bound to have a more fantasy-fueled time. Mars and Venus make an exact connection in Aquarius on February 22, 2024 (2-22, the sign of relationships!) and love will definitely be in the air. But don’t worry, we got you covered with your Valentine’s Day horoscope for the 14th, below!
Looking for love for Valentine’s Day? Don’t overlook that sign.
Keep your options open, astrologically speaking, for Valentine’s Day 2024 (and any day, really).
Rather than evaluate a relationship in the traditional terms of “Are we a good match?” or “Are we meant to be together?” we take a completely different and modern approach in our relationship astrology book, Supercouple. Our system takes your zodiac sign and another person’s to determine your Supercouple zodiac sign (we just created a Supercouple chart for Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce!).
This way of thinking of your blended signs means you don’t have to cross any zodiac signs off your list. We believe any signs can be compatible, there are no “wrong” matches. It helps to know where you click and where you clash, though.
