This Wednesday, February 14, an almost-new moon in Aquarius will flicker like a waning votive in the sky. Call it mood lighting, which CAN be kind of sexy. But a "balsamic" moon—the name of la luna's final waning phase—can also bring a foggy, sleepy vibe to the day. (And it can feel a bit like interplanetary PMS for people who have a lot to release before Thursday's new moon.) Pro tip: Don't overload your night with a five-part celebration. Instead, scatter rose petals on the bed and plan on climbing in on the early side.
Don't get all bent out of shape if you do more cuddling than, uh, performance art. You'll make it up to each other later. Aquarian energy tends to be more logical than sentimental. We're not saying this will be an erotic buzzkill, but foreplay this V-Day may begin with intellectual stimulation before it gets physical. Start with a rousing activity, like a poetry reading, comedy showcase, or a play at an independent theater. Communal Aquarius enjoys a group date. Don't have a Valentine? Seriously, it's SO not a problem. Rally friends and celebrate the spirit of universal love. How about singing ironic ballads at the local karaoke bar?
