How To Celebrate Valentine's Day, According To Astrology

Being single on Valentine’s day can really suck. Depending on your zodiac sign, it can be hard to observe.

For example, a Scorpio might wonder more intensely what feels like to be “everyone else” or a Libra may want to be with someone, friend or family member, as long as everyone is happy and in love (it’s sickening, really).

No matter what your horoscope sign is, l know that sometimes, it can even make you feel like an unattractive loser (irrational? Absolutely, but that doesn’t stop the negative thoughts and emotions this time of year).

On one of the hardest days of the year to be single, it’s important to remember your self-worth and that you don’t need anyone else to be happy. It takes time to meet the right one, so make the most of being single.

If you haven't met your soulmate yet or found another zodiac sign that you connect with on a twin flame level, that's okay. Only you can truly make you happy.

Sometimes, it’s better just to ride solo.

It’s important to do the things you love, focus on the good and take some time to do something that you enjoy.

That’s the biggest joy of being single: you get even more license to do whatever you want without having to care what someone else thinks (unless you still care too much what your parents think, but that’s a whole other issue).

You don't need a life partner. Be your own significant other! You can find social interaction outside of a romantic life. It’s hard to be single on Valentine’s day, but only if you let it be. The reality is that it’s just another day of the year.

Use it to take some time for yourself and celebrate the things you love doing and the things you love about yourself.

You got this, boo.

Here is how each of the zodiac signs in astrology tend to handle Valentine’s Day and a suggestion for taking yourself out this year and have a great ol’ time doing it!

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

As an Aries, you’re not the type to be a big whiner baby when it comes to being single on Valentine’s day. You accept what is, maybe eat a little too much chocolate (because you can) and you keep yourself together. Love will either happen for you or it won’t, you’ve accepted it. On Valentine’s day, you simply go about your day like any other day.

Bring yourself on a date idea: Take Valentine’s day as an opportunity to get together with your single friends and do something crazy (sky-diving, perhaps?).

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

As a Taurus, being single on Valentine’s day kind of sends you into a panic. You’re a little unsure how to cope without romance in your life and this unfortunate day just reminds you of this. You try to distract yourself with shopping and providing a helping hand to those close to you. You’ll probably end up crying over how seemingly hopeless your love life is.

Bring yourself on a date idea: Go shopping with other singles and treat yourself to a Valentine’s day present.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

As a Gemini, you’re unsure how Valentine’s day makes you feel. On the one hand, if you have good people in your life, who needs a romantic relationship? But, on the other hand, it would be nice to have someone to snuggle with at night. On Valentine’s day you sort of meander around trying to figure out how you feel about your relationship status by talking to strangers and listening to your favorite love songs.

Bring yourself on a date idea: Call all your single friends and see if they want to have dinner at your place (games included).

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

As a Cancer, Valentine’s day tends to remind you of all the reasons that you’ve convinced yourself that you’re still single. You tend to spend the day feeling as if you’re not attractive enough or likable enough to ever find someone to love you. Perhaps, you’ll end up having lunch with your mother to remind yourself that someone does in fact love you.

Bring yourself on a date idea: Plan a “Painting with Friends” class with all your fellow singles. A lot of these classes will even offer wine, so you can paint and drink all while enjoying good company.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

As a Leo, you don’t understand how you’re still single. But heck, it doesn’t matter, you know you’re still the bomb. You spend Valentine’s day celebrating love despite your singleness. You know you deserve love regardless of your relationship status.

Bring yourself on a date idea: Plan a singles party in Vegas!

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

As a Virgo, Valentine’s day makes you worry that you wont ever find someone to accept your flaws (of which, you think there are many). You spend the day at your job secretly mapping out a plan for how to improve yourself and to get a Valentine by next year.

Bring yourself on a date idea: Treat your closest single friend to a homemade vegan meal and then go on a nature walk.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)

As a Libra, you can’t tolerate being single on Valentine’s day. You spend the day seeking out anyone and everyone who will talk to you and/or make plans with you (in a non-pushy way, of course). You keep as close to the outdoors as you can to remind yourself that the world is beautiful despite your “non-existent" love life.

Bring yourself on a date idea: Get some soft Valentine’s day chocolate and go visit a nursing home. You’d be surprised how entertaining elderly (and often lonely) people can be. Bribe them with some of your soft chocolates to tell you about their lost loves.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

As a Scorpio, you’re the rock of your social group. You’re the one everyone turns to with their “Valentine’s day crisis”, so you’ll be kept quite busy putting out fires all day. You tell everyone with a crisis exactly how to handle it and, even though you’re jealous of their affections for another, you adore the validation that you’re almost always right.

Bring yourself on a date idea: Buy a single ticket to a theme park near you, grab some chocolate and go ride as many roller coasters as you can fit in one day. Solo riders get through the line faster (Valentine’s day win!).

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

As a Sagittarius, you’re too focused on your career to give much thought to still being single. Sure, you've had the occasional relationship over the years, but you don’t need to be tied down anyway. You spend the day staying on task (staying up-to-date on work, appointments, on top of exercise routines, etc.). You’ll consider going out with your fellow-singles, but most likely end up home alone reading in front of an open window.

Bring yourself on a date idea: Take yourself out to a comedy club (maybe invite a casual friend you know is free) then take a drive to a slightly out of town restaurant for an adventurous meal.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

As a Capricorn, you realize that not everyone can be “taken” on Valentine’s day. This day does make you apprehensive that you may never find someone to have your children, but you know you’re on the right path to your ideal future (if only life worked out that way).

Bring yourself on a date idea: Plan a game night with all of your single-family members, maybe even make it a potluck with Valentine’s day themed desserts.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

As an Aquarius, you get a little uncomfortable with the emotional aspects of Valentine’s day. You’ll most likely spend the day hiding from too much social interaction and contemplating the roles of “love” in our society.

Bring yourself on a date idea: Treat yourself to a night in watching your favorite movie and eating your favorite ice cream (heck, go ahead and throw in some Valentine’s day chocolate too).

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

As a Pisces, you’re always a little devastated when you’re single on Valentine’s day. Being a romantic at heart has its downsides today and you’re going to feel a quite sad at the lack of romance as you look back at any failed relationships. You’ll probably end up crying as you look at #relationship goals posts on Instagram.

Bring yourself on a date idea: Get yourself some Valentine’s day chocolate (you deserve it) and spend the evening in bed watching Netflix.
