Here's What's In Store for Your Love Life This Month According to Your Zodiac
(March 21 to April 19)
Getting a bit of TLC, whether from your boyfriend, your friends or even your family, is always welcome especially when love is such a big deal...but this year, your challenge is to turn things around and think about what you can give. What about making an early morning trip to Dangwa and getting the object of your affection some flowers? Or whipping up a homemade cake because it's a sweet and thoughtful thing to do? Shift out of the me, me, me attitude and empower yourself to give love this February instead of always expecting it to fall on your lap.
(April 20 to May 20)
You're destined to experience some major love shifts this month. The Universe is throwing you a curveball and no matter how you try to "expect the unexpected," there's just no way you can anticipate these changes. The best way to adapt when lightning strikes is to adapt an attitude of flexibility. Go with the flow. If that means falling for someone else while you're already in a relationship, or finding our your guy's cheating on you (oh no!), take a deep breath and know that change is constant but necessary.
(May 21 to June 20)
Give yourself permission to be a total cliché this Valentine's Day. Go all out, whether you're part of a couple or not, whether you're doing a Singles Appreciation Night with the girls or third wheeling with the parents. Treat yourself well. Yes, February 14th is kind of commercial and cheesy, but what's so bad about jumping into the bandwagon and actually having some cheesy, sentimental, good fun? Do the box of fancy chocolates. Buy yourself some flowers. Live it up and capture the moment.
(June 21 to July 22)
Expectations can be a total buzz killer on ordinary days, and especially on Valentine's Day. You've got lots of hypothetical, idealistic plans for how you want the month of hearts to go, and you can plant the seeds (give your boyfriend a lot of hints about how you want things to go) and take steps to making it all happen, but you also reach a point where you've got to surrender control and trust that what needs to happen will happen. Allow yourself to get swept away now and again. You won't regret it.
(July 23 to August 22)
Not used to all the cheese that the month of heart brings? Prepare to sit through 28 days of uncomfortable sentimentality, Leo—because from songs on the radio, to hearts dotting every square inch of every restaurant, mall and park, there is just no escaping hearts day. You can be the biggest cynic about this holiday, but staging a protest isn't a great approach either. It reeks of bitterness and uncalled for angst. Don't be such a raging anti-V-day protester. Who knows, someone may just prove your sarcasm unnecessary?
(August 23 to September 22)
Just because everyone's doing something to celebrate February, doesn't mean you have to. If tradition is making you feel frustrated, confined and bored, then you're totally free to just diss the whole romance of V-day and do things differently. Maybe romantic love just isn't the thing for you right now—perhaps you're reeling from a breakup or going through a rough patch in your relationship. Either way, February is calling you to shift your focus from rah-rah-romance to more placid, constant, steady aspects of love.
(September 23 to October 22)
Your relationship is looking might fine, whether you're in a long term commitment or are just beginning to the fan the flames of courtship with someone new. This year, expand your February not just to include your steady love life, but to also take care of people around you who need some TLC. Be a Mama Bear to your lonely single friends, and use your own wise experience to help them keep their chins up. You've got the perfect handle on your time—just enough for your guy, and just enough for everyone else.
(October 23 to November 21)
What do you really want as far as love goes? It looks like you're going through a period of self-examination, where everything's getting confused and fuzzy and basically, confuzzled. Your advantage is that you've got a lot of time ahead of you to sort things out—you don't need to find answers right now. If your boyfriend's giving you beef for being so tentative about Valentine’s Day plans, ask him to make the call himself because you're really in no place right now to make decisions. Don't worry about this phase—that's all it is and it will pass.
(November 22 to December 21)
You tend to err on the conservative side as far as wishing and wanting goes, but this month is giving you permission, dear Sagittarius, to just go ahead and ask for what you want. Ask for it all. Who cares if it seems like you're reaching for a pipe dream when it comes to defining your "ideal" guy? Wishes are free and everyone's welcome to make them. Now is not the time to settle for good enough. You deserve so much more and are worthy of getting what you want!
(December 22 to January 19)
You're already the super steady, reliable person everyone loves. But this month, while everyone's going stir-crazy with romance, this serious, responsible, stable side of you will come off even stronger. Romantic relationships for you aren’t just flirtations or flights of fancy—they’re serious work. You're going to benefit a lot from being with someone who doesn't want to "just" date. Find someone who will fully commit to you and is done with dating around.
(January 20 to February 18)
Patience, dear Aquarius. You're going to need lots and lots of it this month. Maybe things aren't working out with the person you're dating, and you're getting terribly restless, waiting for things to finally settle in. Don't give up just yet—it's just taking more time than expected to get better or to get good. Love is fun but it's also tough work, and if you're in a committed relationship with someone, you both should be willing to weather the rough patches. The light at the end of the tunnel will come eventually.
(February 19 to March 20)
Whether you're in a relationship or not, February is calling you to hang out with the girls. Friends before boys, Pisces! Sure we all want to spend some quality time with the person we're dating, but nothing can replace the all around good vibes that comes from bonding with friends. Hold a classic sleepover on February 14th, watch your fave rom coms, listen to your guilty pleasure music, and dish about your guy problems. What happens on a girls' night out stays with the girls!
