You Survived 2012, But Did You
Survive Valentine's Day 2013?
Written By Expert Rhiannon Paille
We've really had one heck of a hand dealt to us in this lifetime. Not only have we seen the turn of a century, but we've had to live through two almost-apocalypses! While the naysayers will say it's all superstition, we've narrowly survived the much feared 12.21.2012 end of the world, as predicted by the Mayans.
But what's next? Sure, the world didn't seem to change much after the predetermined end of the calendar. Life continued as though nothing had ever been predicted. But for those of you more sensitive folks, there was definitely a shift in energies, that feeling of abandonment, as though from here on out we're on our own. The silver lining is that we have a clean slate, all the struggles since the latest economic crash in 2008 are behind us and we're plowing towards the future with optimism and hope.
So what did the first Valentine's Day since our impending doom have in store for you? The planetary energies showed an increase of Pisces and Aquarius energy, leaving even the most levelheaded folks in the mood to express their dreams and desires. If you were on the receiving end of a heartfelt soul outpouring, don't think you were the only one. It was definitely a week and weekend for people to declare their love from the rooftops, consequences be damned.
Isn't it always the Fool who rushes into a situation, jumping off a cliff into the unknown? Getting a new lease on life gave many of us the push we needed to
put away the pride, fear and judgments of those around us to just say what we feel. This energy worked particularly well for those who had been desperate to end the silence between themselves and a loved one, but for those who were hit with Cupid's arrow and simply declared their love to their best friend, or that colleague at work, this had disaster written all over it.
So, because we can't all have the fairytale ending we were hoping for, here are some tips for what to do now that Valentine's Day is over and the world somewhat resembles the post-apocalyptic wasteland of The Walking Dead (TV Series).
After Valentine's Day Do's and Do Not's:
Nice things “Just because”
Say “I love you” and other flirty things
Ask out the person you're not with
Keep your promises
Invite your s/o to group events
Talk about the things that went wrong
Declare your love for someone you're not with
Buy Valentine's Day gifts from the 50% off rack
Promise them next year will be better
Ditch your s/o for your friends
