How to Uncover Roadblocks in Your Relationship

SOMETIMES LOVE THRILLS THE BODY AND FILLS THE SOUL; IT CAN PUT A BOUNCE IN YOUR STEP AND A SMILE ON YOUR FACE NO MATTER THE WEATHER. OTHER TIMES, LOVE JUST STINKS.
That's where Our Relationship Challenges report comes in. If you've been together for a while and things aren't looking quite so rosy anymore, Our Relationship Challenges can help. 

After all, facing your problems is half the battle, but sometimes that's the hardest part. Not because you don't want to face them -- you do -- but because they mystify you. You try to get along with your honey, and you know they have good intentions too. Yet somehow, things just don't go as well as you'd like.

Friction, Differences, and Karma Meters

The Friction, Differences and Karma Meters: every couple faces a certain set of challenges, and the number and type of challenges determine whether your relationship will be merely interesting or out-and-out difficult. At The Astrologer, we've broken down these challenges into three sections: sources of friction, the major differences between you, and the karmic ties from past lives that draw you together today.

On the first two meters, Friction and Differences, a score somewhere in the middle is probably best. Friction can be a good thing -- after all, the same energy that makes you lust after each other also makes you fight. And we all know that a good argument, like good sex, clears the air and lets you know your passion is alive! The same goes for differences between you in the ways that you think and view the world: These contrasts keep the relationship dynamic.

Karma, on the other hand, isn't such a great thing, even if your past-life bonds were positive ones. This lifetime is... Read more

From Friction To Fulfillment

Sun square Mars

Titanic Twosome

Of course your relationship has issues! The meeting of two such powerful personalities is bound to strike sparks. Your lover likely excites you like no other. This force of nature tends to be impulsive and fearless, lusty and straightforward, with a confidence that rivals your own. Together and apart you stride through your lives with a daring that others can only wonder at. When you are united you live a life writ large -- but unfortunately, your conflicts rival your passion. Titanic arguments, friction, a link that always seems to be teetering on self-destruction -- you never heard love was easy, but does it have to be this hard? One of you has to learn to give. You can't struggle over everything or you'll waste your prodigious energies just treading water rather than moving forward. And since you're the more gentle-natured, it's probably going to be you who has to accept what you cannot change. Stop hounding your lover over issues that are mere annoyances instead of true deal-breakers. If you can manage to quell your troublesome quibbling, you and your lover could really have something special.

A Power Couple

Color you green, because you're feeling possessive and ill-tempered. You landed yourself a big fish this time: powerful, magnetic, impressive. Every head turns when you walk in the room with this special someone on your arm, and you like it. You've been basking in the reflected glow of your sweetheart, no less so because you give off a vibrant, confident sparkle of your own. Truly you are a power couple, a pair others envy. But behind the scenes all is not so sweet. Both you and your sweetie tend to be imperious, fractious, spiteful. Worse, your usual confidence has been shaken by your lover's secretive ways. You can't seem to get your mojo working, you feel out-of-sorts and angry. You may even view your partner's behavior as abusive. The secret to managing this difficult love relationship is to exhibit a little more patience, and a lot more equanimity. Your partner wouldn't need to pull away if you weren't demanding so much reassurance. Become the person you'd like to come home to and your mate will be home more often.

Jupiter square Mars

Bad Encouragement

You and your lover egg each other on, and not in a good way. Apart you are able to focus your energies on a goal and reach it. Together you are apt to indulge yourself in all sorts of unhealthy ways. You may have run up large credit card bills, or be in some other sort of debt. You act too quickly, you move without thinking, you leap before you look. Other people may have been coming to you to express concern -- your life isn't moving in a positive direction, and though the fault isn't exactly all your lover's, your relationship certainly hasn't been bringing out the best in you. The answer lies in setting up ground rules. Sit down and talk about where you are and where you want to go. What are your career goals? Where do you see yourselves in five years? In ten? Articulate your dreams, and make concrete plans that will bring them to fruition. Discipline and restraint isn't easy, it's true, but this is the only way to combat your drift. If you let things go on as they are, you'll ultimately regret ignoring your moment of clarity.

Storybook Romance

This is the kind of romance that makes for great stories later.In other words, it's not always easy. You and your lover were drawn to each other right from the start. It all happened so fast. One minute you were on your first date, the next you were on the phone to your best friend saying 'This is the ONE!' You fell into love so quickly that you didn't look where you were headed, and therein lies the problem. It's just that you chose yourself such a darned tricky, unstable sweetie. They are full of electric excitement, of drama and blistering, little-hairs-standing-up-on-the-back-of-your-neck passion. But as you've no doubt found out, they also signify upheaval, disruption, a heaping helping of the wrong kind of excitement.Well, if nothing else, you've had yourself one heck of a ride. And if you're willing to hang on, accepting all the bumps and jolts that are sure to come your way, more thrills will be yours. One thing you can say for your relationship -- it's absolutely never boring. For now, that'll have to be enough for you.

Sun square Saturn

A Learning Experience

On paper you and your lover don't work at all. You're directed, goal-oriented, a little impetuous, a lot dramatic. Your lover, on the other hand, is solid and, to your mindset, a little stodgy. You come up with grandiose dreams, your sweetie stomps on them by pointing out all the flaws. You express dreams and your lover lets in all that bothersome reality. Sometimes it feels like you're a big balloon all inflated with hope, and your mate is a big ol' pin just waiting to puncture you. No wonder you've experienced some friction over the course of your relationship; fights little and big. But look more deeply at the problems you've been having. Is your mate trying to bring you down, or give you a hand by helping ensure you turn big ideas into actual plans? You've gotten so wound up with what you view as criticisms that you've stopped listening to the sense behind what your lover says. Are you playing the part of a rebellious adolescent, agitating against Mummy and Daddy? Act your age, sweetie, and try listening like an adult instead. Your lover has much to teach you when you're willing to let go and learn.

Mercury square Jupiter

Out of Balance

It's not that you don't love and adore your precious one with every ounce of your being. It's just that if you have to listen to that superior tone of voice for one more second, you're going to put your fist through a wall. Your matchups have a way of turning into mismatches -- with your expansive, confident partner running roughshod over playful little you. It's possible that your lover is significantly older than you, or in some way more worldly -- better educated? more advanced careerwise? Certainly you feel at a disadvantage next to your sweetie, more like a student listening to a teacher's discourse, or a kid being lectured by a parent than a true partner. On the other hand, there is a lot your lover can teach you if you're able to walk the fine line between willing acolyte and bullied wretch. Demand respect from your partner. A polite tone of voice is a must, and snide remarks won't be tolerated by you. Once you begin standing up for yourself, the balance of power in the relationship will shift, and you can both start enjoying the pleasant buzz of your stimulating love relationship.

A Serious Suitor

There's so much you admire about your lover. There's a studiousness to your sweetie, a certain drive and appreciation for hard work that the scholar in you responds to. But you long for more lightness, more fun. Everything's a slog with your lover. Everything has to be planned and nailed down. Nothing is spontaneous and romantic and breathless; it's all work and no play. It's not that you don't appreciate finding a solid, stable love-mate after all the losers you've been through. It's just that you'd appreciate a little more levity. There may also be family problems -- one of you is on the outs with a father, or another male relative? The problem throws more bad energy in the mix. Action is the key to smoothing the path for you two. Your relationship will stagnate if you don't put real work into it. Arrange for more productive time together -- take a class or get involved with a sport. Less time spent in serious discussions, and more time spent just enjoying each other's company, can start some good habits. But it's up to you to get the ball rolling. After all, you're the one who wants change.

Saturn square Uranus

A Live Wire

You grabbed a live wire when you found this lover, and you're still feeling the effects -- you're electrified, yet stunned. You worry that you can't trust your sweetie. You wonder what your mate is up to when you're not there to watch. You may even have caught yourself doing a little more snooping than you feel really comfortable with. The problem, of course, lies in the time when you're together, not when you're apart. If things were really great between you, you'd have nothing to worry about. So...are they? Or is your jealousy and insecurity tearing you apart? Do you demand to hear 'I love you' when your mate isn't in the mood to say it? Do you ask for promises that, unwillingly given, can never really be given?Buckle yourself in and enjoy the ride. Your lover will always be apt to shake things up. You can never have the calm security that you think you want. But another name for security is boredom, and you won't have that either. This lover won't settle for another less than passion and zing, and if you choose to hang around, that's just what you'll get.

Friend or Foe?

Discomfort Zone

Your love relationship hasn't always been a very comfortable place to be, has it? Fits and sulks, arguments and deadly silences with much left unsaid in the spaces between verbal assaults. You lay the fault for this open warfare at your lover's feet, but think about it: Are you really the kind of mate you'd like to come home to? Are you sweet and loving or bossy and demanding? Do you long to hold your lover close, or bash a frying pan across their head? At times the going seems so rough that you're tempted to give up. Yet how happy would you be, really, if you lost this relationship that's causing you such strife? There's much to gain if you're willing to do a little work. And the first thing on your to-do list should be an honest look at yourself. Are you dragging baggage from your past into the problems of the present? Are you tweaking your lover's insecurities because of your own? Try analyzing the present in terms of your past, particularly if you're having the feeling that you've been here before. It could be that you're putting far too much energy into problems that'll work out on their own.

Jupiter opposite Venus

Mentor and Student

When your relationship is on track, the pair of you are an unbeatable team: frolicsome, lovey-dovey, almost sickeningly adorable. When you're on the outs, however, you're even more unbearable. You lecture endlessly; your partner pouts and complains. And all too often you give in to your tendency to pontificate, embarrassing your lover. Remember, love affairs are supposed to be a meeting of equals, not a painful process in which you try to mold someone you find snobbishly substandard into someone you think 'worthy' of your affection.Some blunt advice? Appreciate what you've got: a glimmering social butterfly that others envy you for, a bright light in a sea of dim dullness. Try to see your lover through the eyes of others. Find the person who once attracted you so much, before everyday stressors wore down your patience and affection. There is much here to value if you can tone down your bossy streak. Your lover's intellect can't match yours, and your interests will never mesh completely. But if you can focus instead on what you share and enjoy about each other, you can keep things on a more even keel.

Mercury opposite Sun

Time to Talk

Ouch, must you be so callous? You've turned your confident lover into a whipped puppy with your here-today, gone-tomorrow affections. One minute you're passionately connected, the next you're itching to get out there and flirt, always with one question tickling your brain: Could I do better? Sure you could, you could always do better, but how many relationships are you going to chew through with your noncommittal attitude? It's fun to fall in love all right, but if you keep whipping through partners every time you get a little bored, you're going to find you've been feeding yourself junk food of the heart.What's needed is some frank and honest communication. Just what is it you're looking for in this relationship? How much time are you willing to dedicate to your mate? What level of fidelity do you expect, and are you willing to give? These are the kinds of issues that need to be faced squarely if you are to move on. Just hoping that things will work out on their own won't cut it anymore if you ever hope to iron out the disparity between your desires and your lover's expectations.

Saturn opposite Sun

Critics and Cranks

A fly on the wall of your love relationship would have no idea why either of you continue on. You view your lover as lazy, arrogant and self-indulgent; your lover looks at you as a negative ol' kill-joy. Neither of you are shy about sharing those viewpoints, either. Each of you tries to play the part of the stern adult, chastising the wayward child. It's fun to feel so above it all, but you're both so busy criticizing each other that you can't see your own role in your problems. You complain and you kvetch, but nothing gets solved. Aren't you sick of being stuck in the same old rut?If so, you're going to have to make some changes. If you keep banging on the same doors, you're going to get the same answer. Try shaking things up instead. Change your attitudes and try taking some direction from your mate. Loosen up. Laugh. Put work off and just have fun. You may be surprised at how much you enjoy yourself -- and how that enjoyment translates into a sweeter, more harmonious connection between you and your mate. You have the power to get things started -- don't let foolish pride stand in your way.

Why Are We Involved, Again?

Venus quincunx Mercury

Match Game

It feels like you and your partner are out of sync. Casually tossed-off remarks turn into major fights; small issues loom between you as if they were large ones. The problem at the root of it all is that you and your lover have a hard time communicating with each other. You aren't a big fan of long, rambling talks about your relationship. You'd rather spend your time relaxing and having fun, letting the chips fall where they may. But your partner is keen on analyzing your problems, pinning them down, discussing them (to death, in your opinion). You often feel trapped by all the chatter. Why can't you just enjoy yourselves?But there's a method to your partner's madness -- don't let childish petulance keep you from advancing in your relationship. No, it's no fun to have long, meaningful talks about your differences, but through them you'll learn to make compromises. Luckily, both you and your sweetie have each other's best interests in mind. Work from that standpoint and you'll soon see eye-to-eye.

One Spicy Meatball

Now here's a spicy meatball. Others envy your relationship, and they should, because what you have here is something pretty hot. You are equally attuned towards the pleasures of the flesh: sensual, lusty, sexy idylls can occur in the morning, noon, or night. Just being next to your lover is a delicious dream, and as you snuggle and drowse you're in heaven. But out of the bedroom, things aren't as rosy. Though you share many goals and interests, you just aren't as comfortable as you should be by this point in your relationship. You can't relax and let go. Your partner is reluctant to commit. Relax. Though your tendency is to move, to do, to go, your love relationship is a fruit on the vine that just needs a bit of ripening. Must you always be in such a hurry? Keep a lid on your rampaging ambition for once, and just enjoy what you've got. Be in the moment. Don't plan ahead; instead, just think about today. The friction between you will evaporate if you can start a chain reaction: Love, and bask, and laugh, and delight in what you've got instead of chafing.

A Challenging Mismatch

Someone's on the outs in this unbalanced pairing -- are you hanging on to a lover whom you feel is too good for you? Or did you find yourself a sweetie who admires you so humbly that you feel both flattered and, in your heart of hearts, contemptuous? Either way, your suspicions are correct: You and your squeeze are definitely a mismatch. It seems you almost never see eye-to-eye. And perhaps worst of all, you don't even have much in common. Sticking with this relationship has probably been, and may continue to be, a long, hard, frustrating slog.But all is not lost! Though you may be fundamentally mismatched, there are pairs who manage to transcend the astrological hurdles strewn in their way. If both of you feel you just can't live without the other, quibbles and all, you're both capable of bending just enough to come together in harmony. Learn to accept what you think of as your lover's shortcomings. Don't focus on what your relationship lacks; instead, turn your attention to the qualities you admire in your sweetie. With a little time and attention this is a love that can grow, like a magnificent flower that takes root in stony soil.

Jupiter quincunx Sun

Awkward But Fixable

On paper, you and your love have so much in common -- why can't you seem to make it work? Both of you are big-hearted and loving, willing to give as well as to take. You have a mutual interest in high living; a love of the best in food and furnishings and fashion. Your friends get along, and even your family members have pulled you aside to compliment you on your significant other. So why can't you find a comfortable place? Conversation doesn't flow easily between you. There is awkwardness. Neither one of you is sure of the other and you can't let go and trust.The answer lies in your ability to remain flexible. Yes, there's a certain way you want things to go, but if you're not able to bend your love relationship will surely shatter. Ask your lover for a wish-list and share your own; allow your whole soul to be viewed. Don't hold back. If there are things you want from your lover ask for them, and be willing to give what is asked in return. These conversations are never easy, but you must break through the obstacles between you if you two are to progress.

Sun quincunx Neptune

Slow and Sweet

Why, oh, why do you and your lover keep finding yourself in this place? You seem stuck on a dissatisfying treadmill. The pair of you pull apart, come together, drift away, circle back. Aren't you tired of repeating the same patterns? The chief problem you're having with your sweetie is that you can't seem to find common ground. And it's true, you don't have a lot in common -- you are driven while your lover is dreamy, you want to stride through the world making big changes, while your lover is more apt to dawdle and drift.But why should you expect any different when you're the architect of this awkwardness? You're attracted to your lover simply because of your differences, not in spite of them. Your amour forces you to slow down a little, to appreciate the subtle and magical rather than just the here and now. In your arrogance you want to force your sweetie to see things from your perspective, but that's shortsighted. Bend a little. Listen to someone else for a change. You may find you have a lot to learn about life, not to mention your lover.

The Ties That Bind

No conjunctions

Enjoying Togetherness and Apartness

There's glue, and then there's glue. Elmer's versus epoxy, Velcro versus nails. Fortunately, with no difficult conjunctions between you, your relationship is bound by the easy-to-separate type of togetherness, not the wild-horses-couldn't-drag-us-apart variety. Now, don't misunderstand: This is not to say that there's not a strong connection between you. But it's nice, isn't it, to be able to take the occasional separate vacation; to enjoy your own interests without your partner feeling threatened; to be two distinct individuals who choose to hang out together. Compare this to the joined-at-the-hip, can't-bear-to-be-apart couple. Don't you always wonder about them? What do they think will happen if they're not together for an entire evening, much less a day or even a week?Separation is not a problem for you two; in fact, you may do it by choice on a regular basis. After all, absence makes the heart grow fonder, and this is surely true of you and your partner. You take great joy in sharing your individual experiences, as well as in spending time together. If anything, you might have to make it a point to schedule in time to be together! You may each be so wrapped up in your own orbit that you suddenly realize that days or even weeks have gone by without you two sharing a full day together.Don't let that happen. Use the previous sections of this report to discover the challenges of your relationship, which so often turn out to be opportunities for growth and development. You two have chosen to be together, and likewise, you can choose to grow together.

Next Steps

I hope you have enjoyed the valuable insight, wisdom and guidance of this astrology report. You might be a little curious about astrology and perhaps wondering how an astrologer can know so much about you!

Astrology is a mathematical system. It's all about applying meaning to numbers, or more specifically, finding meaning in the movements of the planets around the Sun, as viewed from our perspective here on earth. These planetary movements are easily captured and recorded with measurements, calculations, angles and so on.

That's why astrology works so well with computers, whose programs are also based on numbers and formulas. In 'the old days' -- thousands of years ago, when astrology was first recorded -- those early astrologers had to painstakingly observe the heavens and catalog their observations for the next generation of astrologers to build upon. Thank goodness for the computer age! Now we can simply use computers to make those calculations quickly and pull just the applicable pieces of information. Now, astrology is instant, based upon thousands of years of observations obtained through careful methodology.

Interpretations of planetary positions are based in part on ancient Greek and Roman mythology, but your astrological report is unique, describing you and you only. Even in the case of twin siblings, their birth charts differ from each other's in at least a few ways. And besides, no one amounts to just a simple interpretation of their birth chart; everyone's personality is complex. Your astrological report leaves plenty of room for variations based on your free will, personal growth and transformation over a lifetime.

Just like you, your astrological report is unique. It’s generated online in seconds and provides you with instant insight at your fingertips. Whether you have a pressing question about your future or you just want some guidance and direction, now you can have it all -- in a fast, focused, all-about-you format.

You can choose from several different types to find the report that's right for you and your needs. Your natal report is all about you -- your unique characteristics, strengths, weaknesses, potential and so on. Compatibility reports analyze the connections between two different people, to see how well and in what ways they get along. And a forecast is based on where the planets are today and how they're affecting you, uniquely. Be sure to try a free sample of another report to find out more about you!
