Last year, you realized it was February 13 and frantically tried to book a reservation for your sweetheart at the same restaurant where you always spend Valentine’s Day. But, as expected, the restaurant was fully booked. That was okay, though; you never really cared for that restaurant, anyway.
Instead of another clichéd Valentine’s Day this year, it’s time to make some memories. We looked at astrological traits and celestial patterns for this year and determined the perfect date ideas for your Zodiac sign. Venus would be proud.
Capricorn (December 22nd-January 19th)
Saturn, planet of discipline, will stride aside your sign in 2019 and provide you with a mature and authoritative outlook on life. Still crushing on your best friend? If you believe the feelings to be mutual, ask him out to his favorite dessert spot or fancy restaurant! Don’t pass up this opportunity.
Aquarius (January 20th-February 18th)
2019 is a year of self-growth for you as you will find yourself dedicated to discovering peace and personal enlightenment. Due to the rebellious energy of Uranus, you will not be timid when concerning your thoughts and opinions. Take your partner on a nature walk to observe the captivating views. Let your partner hear out your true feelings for him while enjoying the peaceful scenery.
Pisces (February 19th-March 20th)
You may have devised a positive, dreamy experience for 2019. You are not wrong! Any aspirations that you have will be completely grounded by realistic planning. Luckily, Jupiter, the planet of luck, will intertwine paths with you this year. Your romantic partner will make you feel appreciated, valued, and successful. Try going on a couple’s retreat for the weekend, or even schedule a spa day. Relax and bask in the compliments from your partner.
Aries (March 21st-April 19th)
Success has arrived on your doorstep for 2019! You are about to achieve your goals and flourish in the successes that will result from them. Take a step outside your comfort zone, and you will be rewarded professionally. During a lunar eclipse on January 21st you will realize that you are deeply infatuated with the person who has recently touched your heart the most. Take this opportunity to write a heartfelt letter to your significant other and express your gratitude for their presence in your life.
Taurus (April 20th-May 20th)
Seeking knowledge is your top priority for 2019. You will crave to enhance your personal and professional knowledge. You’ll build one-on-one connections, but you are invested in growing independently. Your romantic partner will adjust to your needs and support your need for self-expansion and expression. Why not attend an “escape room” attraction? This will satisfy your need to think logically and spend time with your partner.
Gemini (May 21st-June 20th)
A personal transformation is awaiting you in 2019. You are no longer going to settle for anything shallow and less deserving. You will have a deep desire to build a solid relationship with a partner who has serious intentions. Major luck and blessings will approach you in regards to a potential relationship. Why not go to the theater or attend a Broadway show? This can be a pricey selection, but it will be well worth the money to appreciate and enjoy –– together.
Cancer (June 21st-July 22nd)
The Earth’s moon will be in the Waxing Gibbous phase on February 14, meaning it comes just short of shining as a bright as a full moon. Since the moon is your ruling planet, you’ll be feeling especially sensitive to your emotions. You can use this to advantage by watching a movie at home –– but this time, really let yourself gasp, cry, and laugh. Turn off the lights, pop some popcorn, and put your phone in the next room. This isn’t just another Netflix marathon with your partner; this is a theatrical experience in your living room.
Leo (July 23rd-August 22nd)
You’ve done enough quiet evenings at home. As a Fire sign ruled by the sun, you don’t want to bridle your energy this year. Even if you think Valentine’s Day is just a Hallmark holiday, use it as an excuse to cross something off your bucket list. Try indoor skydiving, a trampoline park, or a weekend road trip to a place you’ve always wanted to see.
Virgo (August 23rd-September 22nd)
As a Virgo, you’re great at noticing details and being thorough in your work. A wine tasting is the perfect pairing for you and your date (or even your Galentine’s Day squad). For an at-home alternative game, pour some expensive, inexpensive, and boxed wine into some glasses and see if you can guess the difference.
Libra (September 23rd-October 22nd)
Your career and other responsibilities have been occupying your mind as Saturn moves through your sector. All you and your beau want to do is turn off your phones and enjoy each other’s company, but you probably still need to work that day. What you can do is wake up early and watch the sunrise together. Later, pick the best spot to see a sunset in your hometown and appreciate the view.
Scorpio (October 23rd-November 21st)
You’re the type of person who can charm the room. In fact, that’s part of what makes your partner attracted to you. Why not share the good vibes with your friends, too? This year, try a double date –– or maybe even a triple date –– with your friends and play some new board games together.
Sagittarius (November 22nd-December 21st)
Jupiter stays in Sagittarius for most of 2019, especially during February. With this planet of good fortune in your sign, you’ll bring the perfect energy to a sports game. Here’s hoping your good vibes will bring cosmic luck to the home team.
