For some choosing what to do on the day of love is hard! And for some, this is the first year they will be celebrating. Even if you’re a Valentine Veteran, you can take some of these ideas and make them your own this year! Let’s celebrate every way we can. We deserve it!
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20)
You are always ready to enjoy the finer things, but usually more focused on how you’re going to save than spend. Get ready to splurge just a little bit! This year treat yourself or you and your partner to reservations at the restaurant I know you have been dying to visit for ages! No better time than the present! Oh and hint to your partner you want the Cartier bracelet, we all know you’ll just buy it for yourself anyway, but they’ll want to buy it for you! Even if your love isn’t forever, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy all it brings to you now! Stop worrying about the future for just one day, you might just enjoy living in the moment.
Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 20)
This year you have some things you want to get done. And you might not really see the value in this day of love and affection. Let’s turn this Valentine’s Day into a bucket list day. If you haven’t written one down, this is the perfect time to get it hammered out! If you have one, cover your eyes and blindly point to one. This is how you’re gonna spend your day! Don’t forget to drag your partner along with you for the ride! And if you want an easy idea, try a museum or art gallery. Maybe a picnic with new foods to try. Exploration will make this day worth it to you!
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Sweet Pisces, I’m seeing some romance in your life, even if it’s self-love! You are a hopeless romantic and can always see the silver lining. Maybe this year you can take a trip to a beach. Or at least sit in a sauna and just focus on loving you! This year work on your ice skating skills. And if you need a different speed, try icing some cookies with your best pals. You should all get matching slippers while you soak up all the love! Watch Keira Knightley in Pride and Prejudice for the 100th time! No one is judging you! You love loving others, but make sure you are standing up for yourself this year! You deserve to receive love too, not always be giving it away for free!
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Nothing better to settle a restless Aries than a concert in the park! If it’s too late to book tickets, find a free comedy show or live music at your local bar. You are already imagining an outfit in your head, so you know it will be a fun time. Wherever there’s going be music, lively people, and you can let your hair down! Oh speaking of which, are you feeling like it’s time to finally get the haircut you’ve had saved on Pinterest for three years? If you are a sports fan, maybe your Valentine’s day should be spent during the Super Bowl. Get your game on with your friends! You make a great host and this would be a great way to express love for something different this year!
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
You probably saw this one coming. You deserve it. Go on a food tour! Write down places you haven’t tried around your town. You need to separate them by drinks, appetizers, dinner, and dessert! Then you (and whoever is joining you for this delicious adventure) will pull them out of a hat and whatever it says you have to go to those spots! First stop, drinks, then appetizers, then dinner, you get it! Go eat your heart out! If you want something already figured out, try a chocolate factory tour! If you want to stay in, order from your favorite places, stay in pajamas, and have the coziest V-day ever. You and your partner can get matching pjs to really get into the gushy mood.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
You are feeling a little overwhelmed with all the possibilities this year. Especially if you’re single this year. If you have a partner, it’s time to get matching tattoos. Yes, it’s chaotic, but so are you! If you are single, no more waiting at the bar for someone to come along! Get on the dance floor, bring a friend and just forget about everything else. Make those last-minute decisions, it’s the perfect night for them. Target shopping spree? Binge-watch romance movies on the rooftop with your friends? Take a cooking class! Join a new yoga class. There is no limit, and this doesn’t need to be daunting, let yourself be indecisive. Your intuition will lead you, or the bestie who calls you last minute! Love is in the air whether or not you are someone’s valentine. Remember you are yours first! And if you’ve found someone that can surprise you, keep them!
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
You crave quality time with your loved ones. And you might have already planned out your night! It’s time to really play to your strengths. You’ve been wanting to get better in the kitchen and you have a movie in mind already. Now you just need a pillow fort and someone to share your cozy night in with! Your guest will love the effort you put in to make this special. But make sure they bring drinks or dessert! That way it doesn’t all fall on you! You’re always caring for everyone else, but this year you should do it because it makes you happy too! If you’re all in, make it a themed night. Food and drinks can be pink and red, so can your outfits. This day is going to be all about getting closer to those who make you feel special.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Oh, Leo, you’re not a stranger to treating yourself, but let’s take it to the next level. Over the next couple of days get the wax you’ve been needing. Get the mani-pedi you know you deserve! Then put on your sequined skirt or those bling-bling earrings and go out on the town. You will be the best dressed, especially with how good your hair looks right now. Everyone is gonna want to drink whatever you’re drinking, hoping it will make them as hot as you! Valentine’s day to you is more about the whole experience, so why not make it a three-day-long adventure of making yourself feel the best you’ve ever felt. Spoil yourself with the ring you’ve been wanting from Kay. Don’t say no to the fancy dinner date if they ask you! You’ve needed a reason to wear your spectacular red dress!
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Let’s be honest. Most of the time you feel like you’re above the whole concept of Valentine’s day. But hear me out. There is a piece of you that wants to indulge a bit. So even if you find yourself having a night in with take-out and a bottle of vino, just remember you have lots of chocolate to buy in the morning! I know you want to get through your list on Netflix, but maybe a rom-com would be okay just this once. Pop the bottle of bubbly waiting for you in the fridge. Don’t forget to buy your jade roller now, make it a full self-care night. Write yourself into your planner Virgo, it’s you time.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
You are a die-hard romantic all the way. You probably have a tough decision to make. Who are you going to go on a date with? A few people have probably reached out. Well, the good news is you have a whole weekend of dates you can have! And in the end, if you just can’t decide, Galentine’s is the way to go! Your besties won’t leave you doing the walk of shame the next morning. And they will all wear the matching robes you bought for a moment just like this. You already have all the materials. Time to relax and let them come to you, you’re always making things happen. Let the girls bring the snacks this time. If you’re spending the day with a partner, remember to hint at everything you want, you can be pretty cryptic sometimes! There’s nothing wrong with being upfront with the things you want!
Scorpio(Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
It’s hard to celebrate love when all this stuff looks cheap and cheesy to you. Well, it can be a really good time! And it can be as deep and involved as you want it to be. It’s truly customizable, so don’t let yourself get caught up with it having to be perfect! Your person is gonna love it no matter what. You don’t always have to do the most! Meet up at a hotel for the night and lock yourselves in! And if you’re single, no need to avoid people so they don’t catch feelings. Enjoy whatever comes your way this year. Tease yourself and go to a psychic. Or if you do have a partner, go on a weekend away so you can connect with just them without all the pink fluff everywhere. Take the time to get to know yourself and your loved one without distraction. It’s all about connection, to your person, or yourself, whichever suits you best this year.
Saggitarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Last, but definitely not least! Alright, you know the drill. It’s time for bottomless mimosas at brunch and then you’re rolling right into a day full of adventure with your best friends. Escape room? Theme park? And then you’ll end the night at the hottest scene, whether it’s a restaurant, club, hotel, you’ll be where the party is. Wear the jeans you have for special occasions, but choose comfortable shoes! We all know you’re gonna be walking A LOT. You’ll find your true love out on the town, well, at least your true love for now. But please drink water this year whatever you do!
