Valentines Day occurs when the Sun is in Aquarius, the sign of friendship -- not romantic love (Leo), marriage (Libra), or intimacy and shared resources (Scorpio). The most successful romantic relationships are often built on the trust and support of being best friends, and not the drama of desire.
ARIES is the most playful friend: enthusiastic, always ready with comic relief and creative diversions.
TAURUS is steady, patient, willing to put its money where its mouth is. It often chooses perfect gifts, either made by its own hand or purchased with exquisite taste. Share music, jewels and fine art.
GEMINI wants to explore mutual views. Ready to expand understanding, it shares uplifting workshops or physical exercise such as hiking, biking, jogging.
CANCER will cook for you, let you cry your heart out and offer genuine sympathy for your troubles. These are the Mama and Papa Bears.
LEO is very loyal, loving and generous. Self-esteem royalty, it reminds you that you are as wonderful as it is, or it wouldnt spend time with you. It enjoys sharing parties, theatre, dance and athletic events.
VIRGO believes in expressing its supportiveness through service, performing kind actions for its friends, such as cleaning, organizing mundane details, providing medical insight or sharing healthy meals.
LIBRA enjoys togetherness, harmony, and artistic excursions, such as visiting galleries, museums or the finest shops in the malls. Often, its friends share pro-peace viewpoints.
SCORPIO shares its resources with friends. Even in a platonic relationship, Scorpios humor tends to have sexual overtones. It shares strong psychic bonds.
SAGITTARIUS will travel far and wide with you. Deeply spiritual, it may invite you to its church or meditation center, so that you, too, will have inner fulfillment on your devotional path. Ride horses together.
CAPRICORN may provide for you out of a sense of propriety. Politically active, it may form friendships based on shared conservative views, interests in history or heritage.
AQUARIUS loves progressive causes that benefit the masses. Its friends may be found in charitable endeavors or excursions to explore diverse cultures.
PISCES has such a compassionate sensitive heart that it can easily take the savior or victim role, disregarding conventional boundaries. It enjoys solitude, so consider yourself lucky if a sweet Pisces seeks your companionship.
