Full Moon On Valentine’s Day: Your Emergency Preparedness Guide

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERAThere will be a Full Moon this Valentine’s Day. In order to prepare you properly I am writing this angry, disappointed rant now so that you may practice your own dismay well in advance. Don’t get me wrong: I love Love, but let’s be honest here… Valentine’s Day comes pre-loaded for emotional disappointment unlike any other day of the year.

At time of year the Internet becomes littered with various articles along the lines of “Valentine’s Presents By Sun Sign” (NEWSFLASH: Scorpios like sex!). I, however, will not lead you astray with sweet lies about how getting a pedicure for a Pisces or an overpriced meal for a Taurus or whatever will make your Valentine’s Day a roaring success, sure to smooth over all the ills of your relationship.  This is Astrology For Life In The Real World, people… not another cable TV re-run of Pretty Woman.

It’s become fashionable to be cynical about Valentine’s Day. We learned a couple of decades ago to be cynical about Christmas, but even though that holiday has completely swallowed North America’s December, it was still largely limited to at least the nominally-Christian population. Although Valentine’s Day is technically “Saint Valentine’s Day,” the more universal nature of Romantic Love means it can gain footholds in homes and markets that even Santa can’t break into.

I’ve taught an online class before called “Love Life Repair Workshop,” and I’ll be doing it again this Valentine’s Day, because I suspect the demand will be there this year. Astrologically, the conditions will be reasonably good for things going wrong on Valentine’s Day this year.

First of all, Full Moons are always a bit of a red flag for emotional flare-ups, and not usually the passionate kind of flare-ups we are told to enjoy with That Special Someone.
It doesn’t help that whenever the Sun is in Aquarius, the Full Moon is in Leo. Moon in Leo doesn’t have a reputation for being the calmest and most orderly of  influences on the emotions.  That, and in general Aquarians (bless ‘em all) have a reputation for being good at a lot of things, but “sweet and mushy” isn’t one of them. Having Valentine’s Day during Aquarius Season is a bit like slapping an “I Love My Kid!” bumper sticker on someone’s forehead while their child is throwing a tantrum in the mall: even if you approve of the sentiment, the timing is terrible.

Complicating matters this year is Jupiter opposite Pluto, which is only going to boost the urge to overspend. That would be okay if the opposition hadn’t already been in full effect for the entire month, and if by the 14th you aren’t completely broke, you’re likely a millionaire — and you should contact me as soon as possible for a consultation, by the way.  Furthermore, things are complicated by Mars in late Libra. Libra, as well all know, is “The Relationship Sign,” which is why all Libras everywhere are always in a relationship, are always good at it, and are always completely fulfilled by their love lives.

(Pause for laughter)

Okay, seriously: transiting Mars in Libra is not much help at all when it comes to relationships, and Mars aspecting the Sun and Moon during this Full Moon is likely to just fuel resentments. And Venus conjunct Pluto will just tend to deepen the mood, whatever it may be.

So:  how can you handle this without maximum trauma?

If there’s nothing much going on in your love life, fear not. There is always hope, and having that One Day Of The Year that rubs it in your face won’t change that at all. If you are in a relationship, remember The Golden Rule: under-promise, over-perform. Let your loved one know well in advance that this Valentine’s Day is astrologically pre-wired for disappointment. Mail them a copy of this article, or if you’re really brave, stick it on his or her Facebook page.

Then, no matter how things go for you on the 14th, beg for forgiveness anyway, just to be safe.

    Looking at responsability for what you recieve?
    I never had any expectations on valentines day, in my language valen, means hesitation. And we have not had valentines day for long, and it is so obviously an advertising trick,, to enhance consumerism! Let this valentines day be for the little love flame, in all kinds of relations, not only the romantic ones,, thats a aquarian spirit,, and the take a risk or have a party in an lionistic way, I´d say! Enjoy the day!
