February is the month of love, so we’ve found out what’s in the 2024 forecast for your star sign when it comes to relationships and dating, courtesy of our resident tarot reader Sharan. Read on for your love horoscopes!
Aries (21 Mar – 19 Apr)
Aries are known to be fiery characters. It’s important that you watch what you say in heated arguments with your other half – it could rattle the trust in your relationship. Be honest with yourself regarding the state of your relationship. If you’ve been the recipient of unpleasant exchanges, take a step back to assess where you stand. It’s important that you take control of the situation rather than let it slide. Express how things make you feel and how you would like to be treated instead.
Taurus (20 Apr – 20 May)
Taurus, the ever-perfectionist! It’s important to you that the conditions to begin a relationship are perfect. So, you need to be making the right amount of money, have progressed well in your career, be the right weight – the list goes on. Do not suppress your feelings just because you feel inadequate this year. Don’t push someone away just because it makes you uncomfortable that you aren’t “perfect” and worry you may not be good enough. Try to relax and be open to new, unpolished experiences. If you experience a break-up this year, the advice is to step back and regain your perspective. It’s important you take this break to gather your thoughts and feelings.
Gemini (21 May – 20 Jun)
The focus this year is on your self-worth in a relationship context. Be aware of trying to overplease your other half at the expense of making yourself happy. For example, are you always ordering what your other half fancies when you have a meal together? Or trying to change your tastes in films to impress them? You won’t be able to keep up with appearances if you don’t realise your own self-worth – and you will end up feeling drained.
Cancer (21 Jun – 22 Jul)
If you’re single, you’ll be receiving some happy news. In fact, you may be torn in making a decision about two possible romances. It’s important that you take into account your own self-worth when deciding who is the best match in the long-term. If you’ve been working on your relationship for a while, you’ll be pleased to know that things will be in the best form this year. It’s going to be a personal achievement of yours to be in a place of love and happiness with your relationship and family. There’s always room for making things more harmonious. Trust your own intuition to flow through all obstacles, though it doesn’t feel like there will be anything major. The overall love theme this year will be to feel fulfilled in your relationships.
Leo (23 Jul – 22 Aug)
You find a deep and soul-honouring love connection this year. However, the path to earning this person’s trust will be a testing one – so be prepared to fight. You will stand firm in your convictions that this is the person for you, and this confidence and authority will make your love interest realise your truth. When you are successful in your pursuit, you will feel like you can take on the world.
Virgo (23 Aug – 22 Sep)
Take care to not fall into a relationship rut this year where you end up doing most of the compromising and begin to resent your other half for taking advantage of your selflessness. Be aware that you may be enabling this. Before you start blaming your partner for being selfish, hit the pause button and take time to reflect. Assess your mental models and behavioural patterns that may be the result of your conditioning. For example, are you overaccommodating your partner because of a fear of loss? There are deep issues to address and it’s best you get to the bottom of things before the situation gets out of hand.
Libra (23 Sep – 22 Oct)
The year ahead is about balancing your priorities or making things more manageable for yourself. In the process of deciding this, you may need to give up something that no longer serves you in order to gain something else which will benefit you in the long run. For the singles, it’s time to reduce your focus on your careers and put some effort into your love lives. Good news is your endeavours will bear fruit. To the people already in a relationship, you will need to make a decision between seeing through this relationship to a more harmonious place or ending it, as you realise your priorities do not lie in working on the relationship. Either way, you will be choosing what will serve you better in the long term.
Scorpio (23 Oct – 21 Nov)
You have a chance at giving a relationship a go but you seem to be holding back. There is a fear of the unknown and a rocking of your peace. A soured relationship in the past has broken your trust and left you feeling protective of your feelings. You aren’t quite in a position to open up just yet. If you don’t, though, you will be giving up a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity at happiness. The advice is to take small steps at a time to give yourself the chance to be assured of this other person’s intentions.
Sagittarius (22 Nov – 21 Dec)
There is a lot of deep soul-searching to be done this year. To others, it will feel like you have a perfect life. But you are feeling trapped by everything. This includes your relationship. You begin to question whether the stability and security of a relationship is really for you. You may be feeling unhappy for a while but have hung on for reasons of keeping up appearances and keeping things stable for everyone else. Your decision will not be welcomed by those close and dear. You will look like an ungrateful and selfish person. But it’s best to be true to yourself than live a lie.
Capricorn (22 Dec – 19 Jan)
You’ve had your fair share of heartbreaks and disappointments in the past. You now know that you are a resilient person and will be able to take whatever comes your way. With this renewed faith and mental clarity, you have a very clear idea of what you’re looking for in a partnership. Flings aren’t your cup of tea but you are willing to work for what you feel is a promising long-term commitment. You have well-defined boundaries but will keep very open about the possibility of new romance. The good news is a blossoming romance is on the cards this year – just remember to give yourself permission to receive it.
Aquarius (20 Jan – 18 Feb)
This year, you’re shifting your focus on the role you play in a relationship context. If you have been experiencing tension with your partner, or if you’re single, there are always things to address that could be hindering your progress in relationships. Aquarius can be a very body-conscious sign. If this is creating a dent in your self-confidence, you’ll be working towards a healthier lifestyle to become a more attractive version of yourself. The other thing to be aware of is your over-controlling or motherly role in a relationship. It might be your way of expressing your love and care, but it could be a little suffocating for your other half. Learn to ease off a little.
Pisces (19 Feb – 20 Mar)
There was some hurt that you caused and you seem to be trying to work through the guilt and shame of the pain that was inflicted on the other party. The boat has sailed now but forgiving yourself seems like a very tricky task as things ended on a sour note. There is a struggle to move past the negative self-talk you give yourself. In some ways, you seem to be subconsciously punishing yourself for the mistakes you made. The healing journey will be long and hard. Do seek help if managing this conflict by yourself becomes too much to bear.
