Valentine’s Day is all about love and relationships. It can be about self-love or love with a partner but the underlying message is how we vibrate with the energy of love. Mars, the planet of passion, will be moving into the romantic sign of Taurus exactly on Valentine's Day 2019. Venus, the planet of relating, will be in the sign of Capricorn at the time. These two planets work in tandem to symbolize the delicate energy that exists in our relationships.
Mars moving into Taurus is symbolic of tempering our anger, passion, and intense emotions and bringing them to a place of peace, pleasure, and enjoyment. Venus in Capricorn is symbolic of taking responsibility in our relationships and creating a sense of earthy sweetness.
While at this time both of the relationship planets are in zodiac signs associated with the earth element, we have a chance to stay grounded and embrace the physical aspects of love and relating. Here are 3 ways we can be mindful of what energies are available to us this Valentine’s Day 2019!
1. Stay Present in Love
Mars moving in Taurus reminds us to slow down and take our time in love. We can savour each moment of existence with others by staying present.

Sharing a meal together or preparing a meal, mindful of each other's likes is a great way to channel the current Earthy manifestation of Venus in Capricorn.
