I’m not the biggest fan of Valentine’s Day. I actually prefer the day after the holiday because that’s when all the Valentine’s Day candy goes on sale. However, I should be looking forward to Valentine’s Day 2022 because both Venus and Mars cross over my natal sun on that day.
Neither planet will be moving too swiftly when it happens, so I guess I can expect an entire extra-romantic weekend where I will be showered with gifts of flowers and candy.
“Cafe Astrology” offers the following interpretations of the two conjunctions:
“Venus conjunct Sun: Turn on the charm! This is a day for sentimentality and tenderness. If you are spending the day alone, pampering yourself makes a lot of sense. It’s a great time to improve your appearance and your manner. You are especially charming today, however, so you might not want to isolate yourself! At this time, you desire to please and to be pleased; to treat and to be treated. You have an especially loving and tender touch. You are more sensitive to imbalances in your environment, and you seek to find harmony in whatever you do. Others see your more charming, caring, and attractive side. You are motivated by the desire to strike a balance in your relationships and in your environment. Smooth negotiations with others, graciousness, diplomacy, and charm are with you, although there could also be a tendency to gloss over the less-than-pleasant stuff.”
“Mars conjunct Sun: Taking action is the theme now. You may jump into something impulsively, do something you normally don’t have the courage to do, or something you have always wanted to do but haven’t had the chance to act out. Competitive activities are favored. Males or traditionally masculine activities figure prominently.”
I don’t know how any of that is going to apply to my life, but I’m excited about the event nonetheless. Maybe I should plan my next trip to Las Vegas then. If my October trip gets cancelled, that might be a good time to get away since my horoscope tells me that “pampering yourself makes a lot of sense.”
Whatever I decide to do, I guess I’ve got a while to plan it. I suppose that you do, too, so I suggest that you mark this eventful day in your calendars so that you don’t forget to woo me with poetic praise and lavish gifts. Days like this only come around once in a lifetime, so don’t ruin it for me, okay?
