‘The Birth of Oshun’ by Harmonia Rosales

This Valentine’s Day, whether single or in a relationship I want all my theydies and gentlethems to remember that love starts with self. The most important relationship we have is the one with ourselves. I have written some tips and affirmations to invoke self-love and practice more self-care for the Venus signs. Feel free to apply your Sun, Moon and Rising as well.

Aries Venus

Learn to love who you are beyond all of what you do and accomplish. Remind yourself that you are indeed, that bitch and no one can take your fire away. Fall in love with yourself while taking a pole dancing class, a tantric workshop, or simply admiring yourself in the mirror.  

“I am strong, smart and fiercely passionate. I am loved and admired for my honesty and sass. Everyone will not love me, but those who do deserve the greatest parts of me.”

Taurus Venus

Material satisfaction can only last so long. Seeking security from relationships without first being secure in yourself, will only draw you further away from yourself — return home. Take time to love yourself today just like you would your lover. Love yourself today by honoring and adorning your body in your favorite natural skincare products, crystals and silk.

“I am confident in and secure with myself, valuing this relationship above all. I am comfortable in my body. I allow my body to guide me and my intuition. I am loved and appreciated for my loyalty and determination.”

Gemini Venus

The best way to understand your feelings is to write them down — or dance them out. Treat yourself to journaling, writing poetry, a short story or fan-fiction. Take yourself out for an adventure around the city, discovering your new favorite places. After all, you know how to keep yourself interested and entertained.

“I am free to feel and express my emotions. I can best channel my inner wisdom and voice through my writing. I enjoy and deserve adventure, excitement and mental stimulation in all of my relationships. I am loved for my ambiguity and open-mind.”

Leo Venus

You cannot mask self-love with pride. While confidence is a great start, it is not the end-all be-all. Take the day to remember that love, especially self-love, comes from within you and cannot be replenished by external validation. Let your inner light shine and create something magical! Remember you carry the Sun in your heart — you are royalty. Remind yourself today and everyday.  

“I radiate warmth and positive energy. I am worth as much love, adoration and respect as I give to others. I am admired my willingness to achieve whatever I set my mind to. I am loved for my big heart and my humor.”      

Gemini Venus

The best way to understand your feelings is to write them down — or dance them out. Treat yourself to journaling, writing poetry, a short story or fan-fiction. Take yourself out for an adventure around the city, discovering your new favorite places. (Whether you take a short vacation, go hiking, or attend a creative workshop, etc. remember to enjoy every single moment.)  After all, you know how to keep yourself interested.

“I am free to feel and express my emotions. I can best channel my inner wisdom and voice through my writing. I enjoy and deserve adventure, excitement and mental stimulation in all of my relationships. I am loved for my ambiguity and open-mind.”

Cancer Venus

Consider pouring into yourself today instead of seeking someone else to pour into. Take time to remind yourself that your sensitivity is a strength and cannot be used against you. Get in your sateen PJs, call your mom, put on your favorite Netflix show, cook yourself your favorite meal, and spend the night taking care of you.

“I am fearless and resilient. I embrace my divine feminine nature, trust my intuition and allow it to guide me and use my instinct. I offer support and unconditional love to others, but more importantly to myself. I am loved for the safe spaces I bring to others.”

Virgo Venus

While striving for perfection encourages growth, being overly critical of yourself does not. Cut yourself some slack, give yourself a break, take a load off! You work so hard to please everyone around you, you deserve a day (plus more) to please yourself. So let your hair down, pour yourself a cup of tea and dive deep into your favorite book.

“I am more than my flaws. I am not defined by my shortcomings. The mistakes I make are minor compared to the major lessons learned. I have a sharp-mind and a silver tongue. I am loved for my devotion, elegance and humbleness.”

Libra Venus

What a joy companionship and partnership bring. But what an experience your relationships can be if you learn to value yourself first. Spend the day showering yourself in compliments and self-affirmations. Create the person you seek within yourself and watch the universe bless you with your match.

“I am beautiful inside and out. I am complete with myself. I stand firm for my beliefs and I only fight for what is right. I am loved for my kindness, empathy, and neutrality.”  

Scorpio Venus

It’s no secret that you would die for your loved ones, but do you meet yourself with this same fierce energy? Devote yourself to your dreams and goals like you do to other people. When you set your mind to something and channel your energy productively, you can manifest anything. Remember your power.    

“I am more than enough. I empower others with my determination and passion. I attract lovers and friends who embrace my intensity. I am loved for my honesty, loyalty, and keen sense of knowing.”

Sagittarius Venus

The world is a beautiful place full of mystery and wonder. So are we. All the adventure you seek externally can be discovered within. Take time today to be still in all the chaos — breath slowly and deeply, fall into a deep meditation and explore the depths of your heart and soul.

“I am free to explore the world around me and seek opportunity in every new experience. I am worthy of a fulfilling and committed relationship. I am loved for my spontaneity, vast knowledge, and free-thinking.”


Capricorn Venus

There is nothing wrong with wanting recognition and praise, but remember that you can always tell yourself what you need to hear. When the curtains close, there is no audience left to praise you so you must learn how to honor and praise yourself. Let loose today and learn how to laugh at yourself. Love yourself today by clearing your schedule and letting life lead the way.

“I am dedicated in both love and work. I appreciate my hard work and strong work ethic. I am capable of a healthy work-life balance. I am loved for my thoughtfulness, realness, wisdom and maturity.”

Aquarius Venus

Caring for the rest of the world is a really big job. Therefore, it is vital to take care of yourself in the process. Ignoring your own feelings to tend to those of the collective is admirable, but is not a healthy act of self-care. Take time today to recharge and recenter yourself. Get lost in a book or that new track you’re producing.

“I am free to spend time alone while still loving others fully. I am electric, eccentric, and eloquent. I am worthy of relationships that embrace creativity and free-thinking. I am loved for my authenticity, unconventionality, and humanitarianism.”

Pisces Venus

You provide a sea of love for others to swim, yet you continue to sink. Consider a new dream: where you’re the main character instead of a supporting one. Spend the day in a fantasy where you’re a queen who gives and receives love equally. A queen who states their boundaries and sticks to them. Hopefully, before the day is done, you’ll see that sometimes our fantasies are not too far off from reality.

“I embody the depths of the sea, carrying with me its freedom and fluidity. I am one with my intuition, allowing my dreams to deliver the messages I need. I take care of myself first, so I can be even better for others. I am loved for my generosity, selflessness, and enchantment.”
