Valentine’s Day is a reminder for those who need the reminder that each day of your existence is about LOVE. This isn’t just about the romantic relationship kind of love. It is the global Universal kind of love. Loving your neighbor and the person standing next to you. Accepting those who live different lives than you do or who have different views. It’s learning to refrain from attacking or verbally bullying others because they don’t share your values. The reason all are here is to love and to learn how to love. When you pass on you are reminded at that point that it was supposed to be about love. Don’t wait for that to happen to come to that realization. Begin incorporating love and acceptance now.

Saint Valentine is the patron saint of love and happy relationship connections. Today when others think of Valentine’s Day, they think of Hallmark marketing ventures with chocolates, roses, and champagne. Regardless, love should be exuded full time around the clock and not just on Valentines Day.
Over the course of entertainment history, there have been love songs recorded, romantic movies filmed, and books written about having a secure, loving, and passionate relationship. Someone felt those things, craved it, experienced it firsthand, or witnessed it in others. Love is a universal need and desire. It is your soul’s innate nature to express, even if you lost the ability to operate from that space. You can find that space again because the love you were born with never leaves. You just bury it beneath layers of cement created by your current life experiences. Valentine’s Day is a reminder to bring that love back out.
Astrologically: The energy influencing the planet through Monday is a bit contradictory. It is heavily surrounding planet Mars (sex drive), Mercury (communication), Jupiter (seeing the big picture), and Saturn (setbacks/delays). There is restlessness and a desire for a deeper connection whether you’re single, dating, or already in a relationship. Communication and the grey matter trumps a physical attraction. You want the whole package. Although stronger communication is desired right now, there may be some delays in getting that communication. The energy for the next few days is about correcting anything that needs to be adjusted, rather than dwelling on it. This includes what you desire in all connections and not just romantic ones.
Cupid, draw back your bow and let your arrow go. Whether you’re in a relationship, single, or dating, I am your Valentine. Even if you’re married I don’t care. I’m filling in for twenty-four hours as a temporary Knight before I’m on my way. This is one of my jobs and being fired is not in my vocabulary. Valentine’s Day has turned into a silly holiday with teddy bears, balloons, and chocolates. The positives are it’s a reminder to those who don’t know how to love. It’s a reminder to those who are crippled when it comes to relationships.
Valentine’s Day is everyday around the clock with whoever I’m with. I never needed a day to remind me of that. Born feeling love intensely every second to the point where it has become both a dangerous addiction and overwhelmingly intoxicating like Don Juan himself. My love life has been like a romantic novel with the endless highs, lows, joys, and sorrows that accompany that. The times I’ve been in between relationships has stunned others. Someone said to me once, “I understand your demanding life, but with your character and intelligence, you should always have a companion, like a cute trophy maybe.” Yeah, like Hugh Hefner. I’ll walk into the party with my signature boxers, combat boots, sunglasses, and bathrobe loosely tied and flanked with an entourage of trophies. Valentine. ♥

I’m continuing with the Romance Angels Deck in homage to Valentine’s Week. Past Life Relationship is what has come up. This is a fitting reminder for us to examine the connections we have with others. The ties you make with other people whether they are a lover, friend, colleague, boss, sibling, parent or even child are no accident. In this case, this has to do with the bonds that you have with these people where you feel like you are being tested. Some of them may be a, ‘can’t live with them, can’t live without them’ scenario. Or everytime you are with this person you feel uncomfortable or forced to put on the face and be civil to avoid a disagreement. You are asked to look at these unions that cause you some form of upset or grief at times and observe the underlying lessons within them. Make your peace with it and then let it go once that’s done. This can also be a circumstance where you are repeatedly being drawn to the same wrong person over and over again. You can’t seem to let them go even though you are perfectly aware that they are damaging to you. There are a couple of reasons for this. One of them is that you both have unfinished lessons together. Each person needs the characteristics that the other has to fulfill a lesson which will help in their spiritual growth while here.
An example of a scenario is, there is a guy who came from an abusive household and the girl is a successful, self-confident and well respected person in her career. They meet and are immediately attracted to one another and form a relationship. Over time she loses herself in the relationship. Feeling the imbalance she starts to assert herself as this is how she used to be before the relationship. When she does this though, he cuts her down using the violence and bullying he learned from his upbringing that she’s not that great. She starts to believe it and leaves him. Yet, she is drawn right back to him again as she remembers all the good things about him and forgets the violence. The lesson here for both of them to learn is that he needs to stop the cycle of violence in his family history and she needs to learn to assert herself and not falter once in a relationship. Someone will love all of who she is without compromise.
Not all scenarios are this extreme, but there are lessons in all of our connections that we must learn in order for us to grow or we will continue to attract the same types of people who exude similar characteristics from one another. We are essentially attracted to these types of people without realizing it until we are knee deep in it. How often do you hear someone say, “Why do I keep attracting the same types of people to me?” It’s important to come to terms that there is a lesson and what it is with these people. Once you’ve learned this then it’s time to direct a change so that you can start attracting in relationships at a higher level. We often times are unaware that there is a lesson in these unions while were in them. Our ego takes over and places blame on the other person on what they are doing to them, instead of taking a step back to see the lesson they must learn in that particular relationship that will prompt them to grow and move to the next level. Once you’ve done that, you are released from that tie and attract souls who are nothing like who you used to be attracting in.
