Leo  (July 22nd to August 21st)

You could look at the full moon in your sign on Valentine’s Day this week as a heavenly nod that you’re special.  If you’re looking for external validation of that fact, then that’s where you could be disappointed.  Other folk could be too caught up with their own problems to grasp fully the complexity of your feelings now. With Mercury appearing to tread backwards away from the Earth now, you may not feel like you can find the words to explain to others what you’re feeling or to provide the comfort that others may need from you to feel good themselves. But you’re not finding the words because the words are not for them, they’re for you. Journal, record yourself, or write whatever Valentine’s Day notes you can to yourself, because now is the time that your deep storehouse of self-love will see you through.
