This Valentine's Day may be more low-key than previous years due to everything that's going on in the world and in the cosmos. After all, Mercury retrograde, which began on Jan. 30 and ends on Feb. 20, never fails to throw a wrench in our plans. But for some, Feb. 14 may end up being a special day to remember. According to astrologers, there are four zodiac signs who will have the luckiest Valentine's Day 2021.
"This Valentine's Day is astrologically a bit wild," Elisa Robyn, PhD, an astrologer and astrology transitions consultant, tells Bustle. "Venus, the planet that rules love, is in Aquarius along with Saturn and Jupiter, while Mercury, the planet that rules communication is in retrograde. Venus in Aquarius will have everyone craving a bit of freedom, and we'll be wanting to break away from the norm."
With all of this big Aquarius energy in their air, it's a great time to bond with your partner or romantic interest through intellectual conversations and shared ideas. Venus will be also squaring passionate Mars on Valentine's Day, so sparks could fly in several ways. Of course, we can't forget that Mercury is in retrograde. So there's also the possibility for misunderstandings and confusion.
But don't fear, Robyn says. "These transits do not portend disaster, rather they suggest a unique approach to the day of love." For instance, this Valentine's Day is especially great for singles wanting to celebrate themselves. According to Robyn, the energy surrounding Feb. 14 is perfect for treating yourself and practicing self-love.
If you're in a relationship, you want to try for something more low-key and easy to plan. "The key is to focus on how love can be easy and more about being present with each other and less about over-the-top celebrations," Robyn says.
Whether you're single or in a relationship, there are a few zodiac signs who'll be astrologically blessed this year. So here are the zodiac signs who will have the luckiest Valentine's Day 2021.
