Here's what's in store for your zodiac sign this week.

Whether or not you’re a fan of Valentine’s Day, there’s no denying that love is as necessary to living beings as air, water, food and sleep – so to celebrate Big Red Heart Day, some love messages from your fellow sign-mates. Here’s your weekly horoscope for February 12-18, 2024.

Aquarius, Jan 21 – Feb 19

“Oh the mountains, oh the valleys, oh the oceans love would climb, seeking a place in your heart.  Because there’s nowhere too remote for true love to find, no matter what people say: If love wants to travel to your heart, love will find a way…” –  Sam Cooke.

Pisces, Feb 20 – Mar 20

“If each one of us took very seriously the fact that every act, every word, every injury we do another human being is really what is projected into larger issues… then each of us, like a small cell, could create a human self who wouldn’t go to war.”  – Anais Nin. 

Aries, Mar 21 – Apr 21

“The world is violent and mercurial – it will have its way with you.  We are saved only by love: love for each other and the love that we pour into the art we feel compelled to share: being a parent; being a writer; being a painter; being a friend.”  – Tennessee Williams.

Taurus, Apr 22 – May 21

“Love, in fact, is the agent of universal synthesis.  Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness the energies of love, and then, for a second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.”  – Pierre Teilhard de Chardin. 

Gemini, May 22 – Jun 22

“Lead us where we may feel the earth’s love beneath our feet, the careful, ongoing construction of love.  Hard fought and won are the shifting sands of this sacred ecology.  Easy to desecrate and difficult to defend, this vulnerable joy, this exposed faith, this precious order.”  – Michael Leunig.

Cancer, Jun 23 – Jul 23

“Breathe properly.  Stay curious.  Don’t be outraged, be outrageous.  Minds were made for blowing.  We are in this life to enlarge the soul, liberate the spirit and light up the brain.  And in the end it’s love and love alone that really matters”.  – Tom Robbins.

Leo, Jul 24 – Aug 23

“I am happier when I love than when I am loved.  There is room in the human heart for all the divinities.  When love exists, nothing else matters, not life’s predicaments, not the fury of the years, not a physical winding down or scarcity of opportunity.” –  Leo Isabel Allende.

Virgo, Aug 24 – Sep 23

 “I’ve seen the nations rise and fall. I’ve heard their stories, heard them all, but love’s the only engine of survival. So come, my friends, be not afraid, we are so lightly here. It is in love that we are made, in love we disappear.” – Leonard Cohen

Libra, Sep 24 – Oct 23

“I sometimes forget that I was created for joy. My mind is too busy, my heart too heavy to remember that I have been called to dance the sacred dance of life. That I was created to smile, to love, to be lifted up and to lift others up.”  – Jalaluddin Rumi

Scorpio, Oct 24 – Nov 22

 “That man is a success who has lived well, laughed often and loved much. A friend is somebody who loves us with understanding as well as emotion. To love is the great amulet that makes this world a garden.  The essence of love is kindness.” – Robert Louis Stevenson

Sagittarius, Nov 23 – Dec 21

“For one human being to love another: that is perhaps the most difficult of all our tasks, the ultimate, the last test and proof, the work for which all other work is but preparation. Work, there is no other word for it.”-  Rainer Maria Rilke.

Capricorn, Dec 22 – Jan 20

“Like the joy of the sea coming home to shore, may laughter rinse through your soul.  As the wind loves to call things to dance, may your gravity be lightened by grace.  As water takes whatever shape it is in, so free may you be about who you become.”  – John O’Donohue
