When it comes to V-Day, people tend to instantly split into two camps: the diehard Venus-loving-chocolate-flowers-and-mushy-cards camp, and the Hallmark-hating-saccharine-loathing cynics who prefer to refer to it as “D-Day”. How does your Sun sign influence the way you feel about this holiday?
You’re a romantic alright, and there is forever the inner child in you that secretly loves all the over-the-top fluff. But if you’re on the macho side of the Aries persona, you might only admit this to your closest friends.
You are a child of Venus after all, dear Taurus. So whenever sweets, flowers and poetry are involved, you’re certainly not going to say no. However, you do prefer a more simple, sophisticated and elegant approach to expressions of love than anything excessively commercial or overstated.
Being the most dual sign of the zodiac, chances are that you change your mind and opinions about this holiday on a yearly basis. As long as there’s something cutting-edge and hip happening, you might be convinced that it’s worth playing along with the whole cliche side of the holiday.
Face it, Cancer, you’re a sentimental fool when it comes to love (not to mention a traditionalist at heart). Plus, it’s often easier for you to express your love in writing or tokens of affection than it is on a daily basis of regular interaction where your moods can sometimes get the better of your inner sweetness.
A holiday that revolves around love, adoration and affection is totally your bag, baby. You live for all of the over-the-top grandiose displays of worship in you courtship. The more elaborate and glamorous the celebration, the better. There’s no overdoing it when it comes to this kind of heartfelt holiday, Lioness.
This holiday tends to embarrass you with its lack of subtlety -- yet this doesn’t mean you don’t want to be serenaded! As long as the evening involves creativity and a unique edge, you’ll easily slip into an evening of divine pleasures.
You’re one of the most romantic signs of the zodiac, Libra so how could you snub V-day? Plus, as a daughter of Venus, you’ll take any excuse for more love, relating and affection. You are a sucker for beautiful things and places so as long as your beau can hook up something lovely and intimate for just the two of you, all is sweet as candy.
Scorpio’s never buy into the mainstream holiday hoopla, but that doesn’t mean you’re not a romantic at heart. You’d just rather keep it on the down low and preferably on the sexier side in private. If passion, secrecy and deep connection are involved, you’re all for an intimate celebration minus the cheesy greeting cards.
With your head in the clouds on a daily basis, V-day is just like any other day -- a cause for more celebration and pleasure. You totally love a reason to do it up big and spoil your loved ones so this is a perfect excuse to shower your sweets with an excess of the good life: kisses, presents and affection. Nobody does it better.
Although you do adore traditions, you may feel turned off by how commercial this holiday has become. Yet that doesn’t mean that you’ll write it off completely. If anything you’ll try to bring some charm and class back onto the V-day scene in the way only a sophisticated Capricorn could. You make every holiday a first class affair.
If anyone can come up with a way to turn this overplayed holiday on its head, it’s you darling. You’ll find a way to make this predictable dinner, roses and chocolates day into something out of this world. In fact, you’ll probably start a trend that all the hipsters will adopt in 2013.
A day where mushy-gushy is encouraged is A-okay by you, Pisces. You live for poetry, roses, and anything sweet, so why wouldn’t you adore this holiday? Unless of course you’re a single Pisces longing for your other fish. In that case, you’ll have to find the poetry in the day as you manifest your next soul mate.
