If you’re looking for definitive proof that Valentine’s Day is nothing more than a fabrication by Big Greeting Card, look no further than the date itself. Valentine’s Day occurring in Aquarius season is one of life’s great mysteries. Aquarius. A sign ruled by Saturn and stereotyped as being “aloof,” Aquarius is, at the very least, known as being neither the warmest nor the fuzziest sign. And yet, every February 14, we celebrate in true Venusian fashion with pink dresses and candy hearts.
