While it may be the dead of winter, you can guarantee you’ll be feeling the heat on Feb. 14. The astrology of Valentine’s Day week is set to be steamy, folks. Between a passion-fueled full moon and a powerful alignment between the love and sex planets, all zodiac signs will have a chance to put their emotions on display and embrace new beginnings in relationships. However, if you’re one of the zodiac signs Valentine’s Day 2022 and the full moon will affect most, then it’ll be an even bigger deal. Prepare for feelings, flirtations, and some fresh starts.

Firstly, we’ve got the February 2022 full moon — also known as the Snow Moon — which will be lighting up the skies in fire sign Leo throughout Valentine’s Day before officially hitting its zenith on Feb. 16. While the airy vibes of Aquarius season can sometimes make us feel more cool and detached about personal feelings, having the moon in passionate and performative Leo will put a fire under our desires and inspire us to get glitzier about our emotional expressions.

Meanwhile, there’s some major canoodling taking place between astrology’s resident love and sex planets, which will usher in new cycles when it comes to relationships, passions, and more. Romantic planet Venus and sexual planet Mars will be aligned in pragmatic earth sign Capricorn’s territory, which invites all zodiac signs to reset their love lives in favor of more stability, longevity, and sensibility. Communication planet Mercury will also be wrapping up its stint in Capricorn on Valentine’s Day, and it’ll be hitting a sensitive point known as the anaretic degree in astrology. This might create a sense of urgency to express our thoughts or share secrets with our lovers, especially since the first Mercury retrograde of the year will be behind us.

Between the build-up to February’s full moon and the steamy Venus/Mars conjunction, the astrology of Valentine’s Day is set to be full of excitement — especially if it’s activating certain parts of your birth chart. Read on to find out if your zodiac sign will be one of the most affected.
