A GUIDE TO SHAPING THE ROMANTIC DESTINY OF YOUR RELATIONSHIP

Cosmic Love Calendar for Couples
PICTURE THIS: YOU'RE FEELING GLOOMY, TIRED OUT AND UNFOCUSED, BUT AS SOON AS YOU SET EYES ON YOUR HONEY'S COMFORTING SMILE, YOU FEEL BETTER.
All of a sudden, you've got the energy and confidence you need to get things done. 

Or, the opposite occurs: You tackle your day with energy and focus, all the while looking forward to the date you have planned with your sweetie. But as soon as you two get together, the mood changes. Suddenly you're both irritable, snappish, going at each other like a couple of Siamese fighting fish.

What happened?
Relationships progress in phases; they rarely stay static. In both the above cases, it's likely that the current transits, or planetary movements, are influencing your relationship in ways that neither of you is aware of.

When things change between you and your significant other -- say, you notice that you've been arguing more than usual (or less) -- it often relates directly to the current transits and their effect on your bond.

A composite chart blends two astrological charts -- yours and your sweetie's -- into one, creating a new chart that provides an in-depth view of the relationship itself. This chart represents your connection as its own entity, one greater than just the sum of its two parts.

This report is for you and your partner. It focuses on teamwork and mutual understanding as it details the influences of current planetary transits on your relationship. This knowledge can help you to anticipate good times ahead, to circumvent problems before they arise and, when you’re navigating rough waters together, remember that this, too, shall pass.

Share Your Fantasies

Don't try to get much done that's serious or business-oriented this week, because your hearts just won't be in it and you could end up missing important details, even if you're working together. Instead, this period should be about romance and relaxation, and nurturing the intuitive connection you share. You're both feeling extra tender and in tune with each other, and you'll want to avoid arguments even more than difficult or detailed work. Now is the perfect time to do something really romantic together, whether it's just cuddling together on the couch and sharing your dreams and fantasies or something more imaginative than that. A good date now might be attending a play, a poetry reading or a gallery opening, but you'll also be perfectly content with staying home and renting a movie. Napping together is also fun now, and you might both need the rest -- your combined energy levels are low at the moment. Indulging in dreams and fantasies is the main focus of this period. When you have to be apart, taking care of the business of your day, be sure to call up your sweetie or send them an email to let them know you're thinking of them.

Mars sextile Mercury

A Fun, Fast-Paced Period

The next couple of weeks should bring a lot of fun activity and communication to your lives. This is the perfect time to take a trip together and visit a relative or an old friend; it's also a good time to negotiate any business that may be before you as a couple. Conversation flows, so long stretches on the road together or in a plane will be a snap; you'll wonder where the hours went after you've chatted the time away. And don't neglect your friends during this period. When you two join the party, everyone has a better time, because you're both in such a good mood -- you're talkative, charming, persuasive, and everyone wants to be in your warm, friendly orbit. If you use this period only for social pursuits, it certainly won't be wasted; you'll have a good time together and you'll both feel energized by your connection. But if there's any business to take care of together, don't miss this opportunity. As charming and convincing as you two are right now, you could sell a bicycle to a fish. With this smooth-talking, humorous gift you have, you could really grease the wheels with your loan officer or anyone else you're trying to do business with.

Mars trine Pluto

Work Together Toward Your Goals

This period is a wonderful one for brainstorming about projects and goals that are important to both of you. You can make a lot of progress if you work as a team, so put your heads together and figure out what most needs changing in your relationship. Have you had any problems communicating or getting along lately? Has anything been worrying you about the way things are now, or where they seem to be headed? Whatever it is, you can tackle it now and change things for the better, in a much more effective way than usual. But being proactive is key; now is not the time to ignore your problems and pretend everything's fine and dandy. Things are fine and dandy -- you're both feeling good, energetic, in touch and in tune with each other, yourselves and the relationship -- but that's precisely why you need to put your combined energies toward positive change, so that you can make progress together toward your sparkling future. If there's anything in either of your own lives that needs changing, you can also get each other's help and input now on making it a team effort instead of a solo one; you'll make much more progress that way.

Venus trine Pluto

Swept Away

You'll both be swept away this week on the power and intensity of your feelings for each other. Suddenly, the love that exists between you is like a living, breathing organism, or an electric current of energy that runs between you and binds you like a cord. You're both aware of each other now in a way that you may not remember experiencing before, and this energy is rare and precious, so you should both honor and enjoy it. Your sexual experiences with each other will be incredible now, to say the least -- passionate, full of ardor, a deeply moving experience for you both. You're in tune with each other at a deep level, possibly one that's deeper than either of you can fully understand; and that's fine. In fact, you'll both enjoy trying to get to the gold -- the pure, potent source of connection that draws you together and keeps you there, even through the rough times. This would be a good time to explore together the ins and outs of your relationship, in fact, especially if you've been dealing with any issues together of late. Now you can really get to the bottom of things -- the core of the core, so to speak.

Mercury trine Uranus

Do Something Different

This ten-day period, you should take the opportunity to break out of your routine. When you two get together this week, you're both in the mood to do something new and unusual. You're feeling sparked up, and the same ol', same ol' just won't cut it. So why not liven things up a little? Instead of spending the evening at home, cuddling on the couch in front of the TV, you should get out on the town. Take a salsa class, or go see a foreign film and go out for dessert afterward, so that you can discuss your impressions. New ideas excite you both now; you feel stimulated by anything that's outside the bounds of what you normally think or talk about. This is a great time to bring up ideas with each other that you might normally keep under wraps because they're a little too 'out-there' or risque; at the moment, anything goes! This is also a great time to put your heads together and come up with a truly creative solution to anything that's been bothering you lately. You might dream up an invention to fix that broken table leg in the kitchen, or you might decide to paint the walls of the bedroom a bold, bright shade of green! Whatever you do, just make sure it's different.

Venus trine Sun

Reaffirming Your Bond

You two are in the mood to spend time together and with friends, enjoying your connection and making each other happy. This should be a really nice week! No, you probably won't get a lot done, but that's fine for now. You're both feeling very loving toward each other, and it's good to indulge that feeling -- since so often it can get submerged beneath all your day-to-day duties and worries and the little tribulations of life. Now, you can just enjoy each other's company. This is a great time to go out on a date together, or to stay in -- or invite friends over for a dinner party. You could even make some new, fast friends together, because you're both at your charming best now, and as a duo, well, you'll make everyone laugh and feel completely at ease! And when your friends leave for the evening, you two will have a great time cuddling up and getting romantic. The sense of attraction and affection between you is strong now, and you should indulge it. Don't worry about cleaning the house or doing the dishes; those things can wait. This period should about the two of you, reaffirming the very wonderful and satisfying bond between you.

Mars sextile Neptune

Pampering Each Other

Your relationship feels like a place of real comfort and support, even more so than usual. Whatever happens over the next couple of weeks, you'll want to bring it straight home and talk it over with your sweetie. They're the only one who understands you right now, and you're the only one who gets them. You're both feeling very tender toward each other -- as if you'd do anything to show your understanding and acceptance of your honey. When you go out on a date during this period, be creative about where you go and what you do. When you give each other a gift or a card now, make it yourselves instead of purchasing something at the store. These little personal touches will really heighten your experience of the connection that you share. You're both feeling more compassionate now than usual, so you want to go out of your way to help each other; since you're both in this mood, there's little danger that either of you will take advantage of it. But don't forget to pay attention to yourselves as well as each other and the relationship. Keep up your exercise routine, but don't push it too hard, because your energies aren't quite as high as usual.

Sun trine Uranus

Creating Excitement

Now is the time to celebrate everything that's unexpected and spontaneous about your relationship. This isn't the time to make firm, rigid plans and try to hold each other to them; instead, play things by ear. Keep it fun, light, footloose and fancy-free. The rest of your year can be scheduled down to a T, so why not enjoy this little ten-day respite from all that and really cut loose as a couple? You feel sparked up when you're together, and you both crave a little excitement, a little spontaneity. So get active: Go out dancing together, and cut up the floor with some hot salsa or cool swing moves. Go for a hike in a place you've never been before. Or, get really daring and try out a wild amusement park ride, wall climbing, roller skating... Whatever it is that puts you in touch, as a couple, with that sense of adventure that you crave, get out and do it! Short, impromptu day trips are highlighted now, as are all the fun, simple moments in which you make each other laugh and remind each other that, no matter how long you've been together or how well you think you know each other, there's always more to discover about each other and the special bond that you share.

Mars trine Sun

Put Energy into Something New

Together, the two of you can put a lot of energy into something new during this period. It's a great time to join the gym, step up your exercise program or sign up for your local intramural soccer team -- but whatever you do, do it as a team. You can really keep each other motivated now, much more so than if you're trying to get things done on your own. You have a lot of energy when you're together now; passion is running high between you, and your sex life may enjoy a boost now! You can also make headway on any projects around the house that need attention. You're both feeling strong and assertive, but it's unlikely that this will lead to arguments between you. While there is certainly a bit of a competitive edge between you now, it should be just enough to spark things up and keep them interesting. You're not likely to lose your sense of tact or togetherness -- and that's really what this period is about: reaffirming your relationship as a unit, a well-functioning duo that can tackle anything you put your minds to. That's why working together is so important now; you can increase each other's enthusiasm and energy tenfold.

Venus trine Venus

Good for the Soul

Any problems or issues the two of you may have been experiencing of late should be alleviated by this warm and affectionate period. And if things have been rolling along smoothly in your relationship, then this period will only serve to underscore the sense of love, affection, attraction and trust that you share. Good feelings abound this week; you both want nothing more than to enjoy each other's company and revel in the bond that you share. Staying home together, cooking, laughing and relaxing, would be a wonderful way to spend this time, as would getting together with friends. You're both in the mood for a party now, in fact, so accept all invitations that come your way. Laughter, after all, is good for the soul, as are togetherness, community, fun and romance. You should definitely take it easy together now. Your energy isn't so much low as mellow; you're less in the mood to go play a pickup game of soccer together than to lounge around, enjoying good food and drink, or just cuddling and enjoying the sensations you can bring each other through caresses and sweet murmurings of affection.

Return to Table of Contents
Mercury trine Mars

Honest and Straightforward

Any issues that have come between you of late can get sorted out now, because at the moment, you're both being honest and straightforward about your needs, desires and opinions. Neither one of you is afraid to speak up to the other, because you both feel as if the relationship is an open, equal forum -- a place for both of you to loosen up, let down your hair and let it all hang out, so to speak! While debates are possible between you at the moment, things probably won't spiral into an actual argument. You're both feeling too tuned in and levelheaded for that. You want to cooperate, not fight. You both recognize that speaking clearly and calmly is much more effective than yelling, pouting or whatever other silly behaviors you two might indulge in from time to time, which means that right now, you can really get things done! This is also a great time to work together on things outside the relationship, such as running errands or getting work done as a team. You'll get a lot more done if you work together now than if you try to work alone. Getting some exercise together would also be a great idea now. Go for a walk or a light jog, so that you can talk along the way!

Mercury trine Jupiter

A Boost in Confidence

You both feel a boost in confidence this week regarding your romantic bond. You feel lighthearted when you're together; things seem funnier than usual, and you're both ready to crack a smile at the least provocation. This increased confidence is a real gift to your relationship, since sometimes you may not feel certain about where you're headed together (or why). But for now, during this ten-day period, you can both see the horizon clearly, and what you see fills you with hope and happiness. This would be a great time to do something interesting, even mind-expanding, together -- take a couples' cooking class, go on a weekend trip to someplace you've never been before, or attend a lecture or book reading. You're both in the mood to express everything you're thinking, feeling and perceiving. You're also in the mood for some fun social activity with friends, so throw a dinner party together and cook up the recipes you learned in that couples' cooking class, or accept an invitation from friends and head out on the town. Any joint purchases or legal decisions should go smoothly now, but try not to pump each other up so much that you become overconfident.

Mars trine Venus

A Boost in the Bedroom

The energy influencing your relationship during this period is likely to bring you a very nice boost in the bedroom department! So this is a great time to connect with each other, have some fun and reaffirm your attraction to each other as well as your commitment to the relationship. But while you can and should have a wonderful time together now, this is also a good time to work as a team on a project -- one outside the bedroom. You'll inspire a certain artistry in each other that you can use to really make your work beautiful as well as enduring. It's a good time to work together on painting a room in your house a new and vibrant color -- one that you pick out together, of course -- or make a weekend project of refinishing an old piece of furniture or planting a garden that will flourish into beauty in the coming months. Any business that you have to tend to during this period, such as cleaning the house or paying bills, should be made as fun as possible. Turn on the stereo and dance together while you sweep away the dust bunnies, or make cookies together to enjoy while you sit down and get your finances in order.

Mercury trine Mercury

Renewed Interest

This week, you two are getting back in touch with that sweet meeting of the minds that attracted you to each other in the first place. You may have a lot of busy-work to attend to as a team, such as paying bills or negotiating contracts on something big that you're purchasing together; but if you have any free time together at all, you should definitely spend it exercising your minds together. Go see a play or a lecture, or take a trip someplace new together. You're both in the mood to expand your minds and to talk about everything that occurs to you about what you see, hear and feel. If any issues have been coming between you lately, now would be a great time to talk them out, because you're both more logical than emotional at the moment, and you can really express yourselves without the usual defensive filters in place. Again, though, this ten-day period should be about fun -- about interesting conversations and interactions. You're tapping into the excitement of your relationship, and this could happen in big ways or small ones -- like playing a game of Scrabble together and laughing over the words you both come up with!

Sun trine Mars

Let's Get Physical

This ten-day period is perfect for getting physical. Yes, you can get that kind of physical -- your passion for each other is revitalized now, and this is a great time to get close in the bedroom! But you can also focus your teamwork and energies on other projects, like cleaning house, working out, playing sports together or whatever project comes to mind. When you're together, you'll both feel enthusiastic and motivated; this should be a very dynamic period. You'll certainly be able to get more done together than alone, and you should capitalize on that. If there are any projects you've started together in the past but left unfinished, now is the perfect time to tackle them again with renewed energy, and get things squared away. Finish building those bookshelves together, or planting the garden, or completing that physical fitness course at the park. You've got the drive now to get things done, and you can push each other a little harder than you'd push yourselves. Okay, a lot harder! There's a healthy, fun sense of competition between you now, so you'll both have a great time trying to outdo each other, and yourselves.

Mercury trine Neptune

Mutual Sympathy and Support

When you two open up to each other about your feelings this week, you'll both tune in and listen with more than just your ears. You're feeling softer than usual toward each other now; you want to know what's going on with your sweetie, and your most sensitive feelers -- your instincts and intuition -- are working to give you a subtle view of what's in their mind and their heart. And they're returning the favor. If either of you encounters problems at work or otherwise in your daily life, you know that you can bring them home this week and receive a lot of sympathy and support from your sweetie for your travails. A wonderful date for you two now might be a long walk out in nature, during which you can talk together or simply commune silently with each other and with the world around you. At night, before you go to sleep, take a few minutes to read aloud to each other -- a bit of poetry would be perfect -- to prepare each other and yourselves for the dream world you're about to enter. You'll put each other in a highly imaginative and receptive frame of mind, and you could end up having some incredible dreams -- maybe even about each other!

Sun trine Jupiter

Work on a Project Together

Your relationship should be a sweet, peaceful haven to revel in during this week-long transit, but don't miss out on the opportunities available to you now by just lazing around together! You can actually put this wonderful energy to good use, if you try. For one thing, you can make some real headway now on resolving any issues that may have been a problem between you recently. You're both feeling calm and optimistic about your future as a couple, which means you'll be much more open to working together than usual, and far less defensive or pessimistic about where things could go from here. This is your time to work as a team and really shoot for the stars! This can also apply to projects that you work on as a team now. Planting a garden, refinishing an old wardrobe, writing a short story -- whatever it is, you'll be infused with creativity and very open to each other's ideas. In fact, you'll both expand each other's creative energies, broadening things beyond anything either of you could have done on your own. So don't just lie around, feeling good! Get something done that you can both be proud of for a long time to come.

Saturn trine Uranus

Creative Problem Solving

Any problems you've been facing as a couple can be creatively resolved during the next several months, as you tackle life together with a new sense of imagination and inventiveness. Your relationship suddenly seems like a really exciting place to be, as you improve on the foundation you've built together and move toward your shared future with your eyes wide open and bright. Opportunities may open up for you now; whatever it is that you've always dreamed of doing together could suddenly fall into your laps, seemingly without either of you putting in any effort at all! If you've been wanting to move, a great new apartment or house might suddenly go on the market, and you'll find out you're the only ones bidding on it...or, if you've been hoping to find more time to travel together, suddenly one of you could get a job that takes you all over the world and pays for your sweetie to come along for the ride. When these opportunities come up, be sure to reach out for them! You can't take full advantage of the blessings of this period unless you're willing to be proactive, reach out, grab hold and take it from there.

Speaking Your Minds

You probably won't have much downtime together during this fun, active ten-day period. If you're on the couch watching TV together, you're both laughing and yelling at the TV; if you're trying to take a nap together, new thoughts and ideas will keep popping into both of your heads, and you'll just have to get it out. And when you're apart, the phone calls, emails and IMs will be never-ending. What fun! But even more than fun, this is a real opportunity to get to know each other even better than ever before. You'll amaze each other with your honesty and your insights. You'll open up in ways that you usually don't. And you may even surprise yourselves with what comes out of your mouth when the two of you are together. Because of all the heightened clarity of communication going on, this is an excellent time for making plans and decisions together. As a team, you can weigh out all the pros and cons of a situation and decide together where to go next. If there's something important or serious on your horizons -- an upcoming new job, move or other change -- you can talk things out and make sure that both of you are comfortable with where things are going.

If you go out together this week, don't make it your usual restaurant, and skip the usual dinner-and-a-movie get-together for something more unique and unusual. An interesting energy is created whenever you're together now, and you could really have some eye-opening experiences as a couple if you commit to varying the routine. If you live together, this is a great time to redecorate, but again, don't do things in the usual way. Your focus as a couple now should be on anything that's different -- anything that gives you that sense of being alive, that feeling that the universe is limitless, and you've only uncovered a tiny corner of it yet. There's so far to go! This is always true, of course, but normally we get too caught up in the day-to-day minutiae of life to remember that the world holds far more than we've ever dreamed of or imagined. Now, you can get back in touch with that feeling of newness, as a couple. Take an impromptu weekend trip, or play hooky together from work. Buy a piece of abstract art and display it proudly in the living room. Do something -- anything -- that's outside your usual beat. You'll discover amazing things if you do.

An Attractive Couple

As a couple, you're both at your articulate, sociable and attractive best this week. Important social functions -- such as fundraisers or dinner with the boss -- go even better than they would have if you'd each attended alone. Other people are impressed by what a friendly, intelligent and good-looking duo you make! And there's nothing like a good impression to grease those wheels. But the current energy isn't wasted on simple social gatherings or one-on-one dates, either. You're both feeling much more like getting along than going head-to-head on any subject, so conversations go smoothly now. In fact, this would be a good time to have a little talk about any problems that have been affecting your relationship lately. You'll be able to articulate yourselves better than usual, and you'll both place harmony over all else, making it easier to stay calm and get along. But don't feel as though you have to spend this period discussing heavy issues. This is a time to be light of heart. A great date now might be to a gallery opening or a botanical garden -- someplace where you can soak up the beauty together, and revel in the sweetness of your connection.

A Good Time to Be Heard

This week you two should set aside time for some quality interactions, because suddenly, the lines of communication are open. You both feel heard and understood, and you're able to express yourselves well, in a way that's both tactful and direct. If there are any issues that need airing out between you, now is definitely the time; you can talk about potentially troublesome or serious subjects without the usual layers of defensiveness that can often get in the way of good communication. It's also a good time for less serious matters. Go see a movie together, and then head out afterward for coffee or ice cream and a discussion of what you both saw, heard and felt. Read a book together by chapters, taking turn reading aloud to each other. This is also a great time for fun day trips, so if you can get out and away, you'll have a great time. There's no need to pack CDs for the road; you'll both have a great time just chatting about anything and everything that comes into your heads. And last but not least, this is a good time for any contracts or negotiations that directly involve your relationship. Think marriage licenses, rental agreements and the like. How exciting!

Your Challenges

A Year of Questioning

If your relationship were human, it would purchase a red, zippy sports car this year and dye its gray hair some vibrant, youthful color. Yep, that's right -- your relationship is going through its very own mid-life crisis, even if you haven't been together long -- and you two are feeling the effects. You're both aware that you're not going to live forever, and neither is your connection. Have you been taking each other or your bond for granted recently? If so, this period will be even more pronounced, because it injects your lives with a shot of adrenaline, forcing you to face the present and the future at once. Is this what you really want -- the way this relationship is, right at this moment? If the answer is no, take the extra energy this transit provides and use it to create positive change in the ways you relate to each other. If the answer is yes, then reconcile yourselves to the fact that all things, even special ones, must come to an end. Growing old and gray together is a wonderful possibility; don't cloud it by worrying about future loss or change! The best you can do with this energy is to let it help be more proactive and determined about the way this relationship progresses.

Limited Viewpoints

The next several months could be a lonely period for both of you, even though you're involved in this intimate relationship with each other. Suddenly, neither one of you feels as if you're getting through to the other, no matter how hard you try. Your conversations may be awkward at best, and could easily turn into arguments as you each try to pick the other's logic apart, exposing the flaws in their thinking. You might both experience serious doubts about the relationship, wondering if this is really what you should be doing right now. Or, this could be an influence that affects you two as a unit. Maybe you're both thinking the same way on some important issue, so much so that neither one of you realizes you're looking at things in the wrong way -- all you notice is that whatever you think is going to happen doesn't; whatever you hope will work seems to fail. Your instincts will tell you to be conservative in your actions, but that may not be the best route. Still, it'll be hard to break out of the fear you'll both feel regarding doing something outside the box. You might just have to wait this period out.

Restricted by Commitments

You might both feel restless during the next few months, suddenly much more aware of wanting to be free and independent instead of part of a couple. You're more conscious now of how you're held back, and less conscious of the ways in which you're supported by your bond. Suddenly, that support doesn't matter -- not in the face of your need to get out there and be yourself! This restlessness may not confine itself to your relationship, either. You may suddenly feel like signing that loan application was a bad idea, even though you knew at the time what you were getting into, and for how long. That time-share with coworkers no longer seems like a fun excuse to get away for the weekend; it now seems like a financial burden that's keeping you from visiting all the places you really wish you could go. Try not to let this feeling of restlessness get you down; instead, use it as a catalyst for positive change. If you're feeling detached from each other, sit down together and have an honest talk about your feelings -- or, just wait and see how things go. There's a good chance your restlessness will pass with the current energy.

Change Lies Ahead

Decisions that you made together some time ago come back to you now as their effects make themselves known, possibly in an uncomfortable way. Difficulties in your relationship that seem to crop up out of nowhere may make you both feel insecure about your bond; after all, if you can't trust yourselves to make good, solid choices that will lead to good things, isn't it possible that your decision to be together is suspect in itself? Well, not really. It's more likely that these frustrations aren't out of nowhere -- they've just been brewing beneath the surface, and the current energy has drawn them out. But maybe those feelings of doubt and insecurity are important just now, because they will force you to take stock of your connection. If either of you has treated the relationship with less respect than you should have, this period will challenge you to get serious about things. Both of you will have to figure out once and for all why you're in this, and whether you want to stay. If you do, there will be some difficult choices to make and some growing to do, but it's worth it in order to create the kind of relationship you both want and know you can have.

An Impulsive Streak

When rebellious thoughts enter your heads during this period -- fantasies of ditching out on the ol' ball-and-chain, maybe, and running off to Fiji -- don't take them too seriously! It's just the current energy at work, whispering seductive fantasies in your ear, making you question whether you're leading the life you've dreamed of. Hey, questioning is great, but uprooting yourself just because you're feeling restless isn't great at all. If you're both feeling rebellious, well, at least you can run off together; but chances are good that you'll each secretly feel suspicious that the grass is much greener someplace else. You'll both start behaving in ways that reveal your urges for independence: Maybe you start disagreeing with your sweetie purely for the sake of disagreement itself, and then they start showing up late for dates just to keep you on your toes, which ticks you off... Sounds a little immature, doesn't it? On both your parts. So calm down. The energy passing through is meant to test your bond. Show it how strong you two are by resisting its siren call of freedom -- at least until your heads are clearer and you can make more definite, less impulsive choices about your future.

Playing 'Telephone'

During this ten-day transit, you could easily work each other's last nerve. No matter how calm and reasonable you may feel when you're apart, miscommunications when you're together will lead to tension. Arguments are likely, but it's just for now; this energy will pass through in a week or so. But if you don't remind yourselves of that fact, you'll be way too hard on each other and you'll make a difficult situation even worse. Even at best, you'll both have to work hard to get your points across. Try active communication: Make eye contact, listen as best you can, wait for your sweetie to stop speaking before you start, and -- here's the important part -- before you assert your own opinion, repeat back what you just heard, just to make sure you're not wildly off-base in your response. If you can both stay patient, you might even get a laugh out of all the myriad ways you'll mishear each other -- like your very own, private game of 'Telephone'! Make sure, also, that you read the fine print on any business, legal or monetary matters that come up this week. Even when you put your heads together, you could miss important details if you're not careful.

Practice a Little Patience

This ten-day period will test your ability to listen to each other without defensiveness or other filters that can distort what you hear. It will also challenge you to put your own ideas forward in a clearheaded way, because your communication is afflicted now and you'll both have to try extra hard to get things across. That's a tall order, though, so don't be surprised if arguments break out at random, often with only the slightest provocation -- or, seemingly, none at all. You might say something perfectly innocuous that ends up really ticking your sweetie off. If you're the one who's getting annoyed, remind yourself that it's much more likely due to a misunderstanding on your part than to any ill will on your sweetie's. That's very difficult to do, though; in the moment, you'll probably be so consumed by your own self-righteousness and your hurt feelings that you won't realize till later that you actually misheard what they said. Know that the two of you will probably have trouble agreeing on pretty much everything, for the moment: which movie to see, where to go out to eat, who gets to hold the remote control and so on, up to the bigger, dicier subjects that affect your relationship.

Temporarily Commitment-Shy

Neither one of you is respecting your bond as a couple this week as much as you should, so take care not to create a real mess. You're both feeling a bit rebellious; you've got grass-is-greener syndrome for the moment, and you both might start wondering if there might be someone out there who's just a little more interesting and exciting. Well, the answer is, probably so. But so what? Someone else might excite you more, but they would come along with their own problems and personality quirks that you'd have to learn to put up with -- which, after a while, would dim your sense of excitement and newness. That's what's going on here; after all, you two found each other pretty exciting back in the beginning, when everything was new and the possibilities were limitless. Now you know each other a little better, including each other's foibles, and it's easy to get impatient with each other and even start thinking that maybe you should look for love somewhere else. Good thing this is a short period of instability; if you're both careful, neither of you will do or say anything you regret, and you'll both be glad next week when you remember how strong and important your bond truly is.

Ignoring Reality

During this two-year transit, you're both seeing what you want to see in one another and missing the reality of the connection that you share. Warning signs could pop up regarding the relationship, but you'll both blithely ignore them, until later, of course, when they're too big and insistent to keep denying that their existence. In the meantime, though, all is roses, to hear you two tell it. You've put each other and the relationship up on a pedestal, and you'll do whatever it takes to keep those pillars from crumbling down -- stars in your eyes, rose-colored glasses, blinders, you name it. Even if there aren't major problems developing between you, you'll still miss out on the reality of your bond. On the other hand, there's not much you can do about it. The current energy is a hazy, lazy one that much prefers sweetness to strife. You won't want to argue with each other; that's why addressing issues between you is so difficult. You just want peace and harmony. You also won't be much for motivation during this transit. Staying at home in bed or on the couch in front of the TV will often seem like a better idea than pushing yourselves to get out of the house.

Standing in Your Own Way

You two have an agenda firmly in mind during this period of a few years, which is a good thing in terms of knowing where you want to go and what you want to achieve. But you may be standing in your own way now, impeding the great progress that you both want to make toward your goals. However you define success as a couple -- purchasing a grand home together, launching your dream business, even being crowned 'Best Couple' by your friends or colleagues! -- that success is at the forefront of your minds now, and you could become insufferable to your friends without even realizing it. Think about it: If, every time you get together with friends or coworkers, you're pushing your own agenda, talking yourselves up, asking for favors or networking solely in the name of your own interests, it's only natural that other people may start to feel annoyed, right? One way to circumvent this is to make sure that the goal you're pushing toward is one that benefits the greater good, not just you two. If you get behind a cause that has local or even global benefits, your associates are a lot more likely to get behind you in support.

Power Struggles Simmering Beneath the Surface

Your egos could get the better of you during the next several years, as a troublesome energy moves through your relationship. Arguments spark at the drop of a hat now; you're both on edge, though neither one of you may know why. You'll feel irritable whenever you're together, even when it's low-grade and subtle -- which is almost worse. When it's a subtle enough sense of annoyance, you don't even recognize that it's there, meaning you could treat each other shortly without even knowing it. What's going on here, under the surface, is you're engaged in a battle of wills with each other. Who's in charge in this relationship? Who has more power, and why? Those are the questions simmering beneath the surface, making you both throw your weight around in unnecessary ways. After all, you should be equals -- neither one of you should be the one who's on top all the time. Taking turns is the only healthy way to do it; use both your strengths instead of pigeonholing one or both of you into rigid roles that tick you off. But realizing that and doing something about it are two different issues during this period. Try to keep your cool as much as possible.

Muddled Plans

Clear communication will be difficult for you two this week. Plans you made together will suddenly be up in the air, and you'll have trouble following paths that you've set for yourselves, even familiar ones. If you're working together on any kind of project, you could find that you didn't have all the information when you initially set things in motion. Part of the problem this week will be that even putting your heads together won't help much in straightening things out. Your mutual impressions will be off, and your intuitions won't be accurate. If you do operate based on impressions, don't be surprised if you take a wrong turn, literally or figuratively. Perhaps the key to this blessedly short period will be simply not to expect anything less than confusion. Anything you plan together will be disorganized, and in some situations, that's fine -- it could even make things more fun, such as if you're taking a weekend trip together and you've got time on your hands. But if it's something important that you're planning together, such as a dinner party with your bosses or other VIPs in attendance, get the help of a third party to make sure things run smoothly.

In Doubt

Suddenly, you might both feel as if the relationship is in doubt -- as if all your plans and goals regarding your future together are tossed up in the air and called into major question. Can you really do the things you've dreamed of doing together? Even your commitment itself suddenly feels like a house built on sand, without a firm foundation. Good thing this period is relatively short! In a week or so, you'll both feel much more solid in your footing; your clear vision of what you want out of the relationship will return. But for now, you could both feel plunged into confusion -- and the worst part of it is, neither one of you is talking. How can you discuss something so vague and amorphous? But you'll both notice that for now, when you get together, neither one of you seems to be your usual self. You might even feel suspicious of your sweetie, as if they're hiding something from you. If that feeling comes up, remind yourself that they're not hiding anything that you're not hiding yourself -- that is, this sense of vague discomfort with the relationship and where it's going. As long as neither of you attaches too much importance to this feeling, you'll get through it fine.

Be Patient

This week you're both talking, but neither one of you is hearing what the other is trying to say. Arguments are likely because you're both misunderstanding each other's intentions; when you're together, you'll both get offended more quickly and easily than when you're apart. Good thing this period lasts only a week or so! And if you both can exercise a little patience, you could skate right through this potentially troublesome influence with little or no trouble at all. But it's likely that you will have to work at least a little harder than usual at making yourself heard, and also at listening carefully to what your honey is trying to say. The impulse will be strong now -- for both of you -- not to let the other person finish their sentence, because you'll want to answer whatever they've just said as soon as possible. But a little patience and self-control will go a long way here! If you're feeling critical of each other, try to keep it under your hat; the irritation of this period will pass through when the energy abates. If a truly important issue comes up, on the other hand, now would be a good time to speak honestly, even if what you have to say isn't what your sweetheart wants to hear.

Listen Up

Miscommunications this week could leave both of you feeling a little frustrated or embarrassed. You might make a date and then find that you both had different ideas in your minds of what, when and where; or one of you could be feeling amorous and chatty while the other just isn't in the mood for much interaction. If things do get tense, try not to let them devolve into criticism and arguments. It's not your sweetie's fault, any more than it's yours; this is just one of those weeks when snafus will happen with annoying regularity, and you'll both just have to roll with the punches. You may end up having to discuss things that neither one of you wants to talk about, such as problems in the relationship. Be especially careful in your communications if you're working together on something that's supposed to beautify things around your home. Again, you could find that you each have very different ideas of what's supposed to happen and when, and if you're not careful, things could turn from pleasant to unpleasant fast! Be clear about your own expectations, and listen carefully when your sweetie is voicing their own. Snafus can be avoided if you both just listen up.

Take a Chill Pill

Things could feel a bit strained now. The two of you seem to be working at cross-purposes; your schedules are off, you're both a little moody, and your libidos might not be up to par. You might have lingering doubts at the back of your mind about the relationship -- is this really living up to everything you wanted it to be? Is it even what you thought it would be? Dissatisfaction and anxiety reign now. It's easy to press each other's buttons, and you know each other well enough to know just which ones to push! So don't do it. Keep a handle on yourself; stay calm even when things get tense. The best thing to do during a period like this is just hunker down and wait it out. If you can, spend a little time apart -- absence, as they say, makes the heart grow fonder. If you do have to spend a lot of time in close quarters, don't be surprised if arguments break out and feelings get a little hurt. If this happens, think of it as an emotional clearing of the air for your relationship -- an important thing to do every now and then, even if it's not a fun one. In a week or two, things will start to look rosy again, and you won't even remember what you were so upset about.

Lazy and Affectionate

You won't get a lot done together during this ten-day period; when you get together, you'll both just want to revel in your bond. You'll find it hard to focus on anything tedious or mundane, like schoolwork, housework, paying bills or getting to the office on time in the morning. It's so much nicer just to loll around in bed together, cuddling, giggling and whispering sweet words of affection! But hey, even though you two are enjoying a little renaissance of love, the world's still carrying on around you. In a week or so, you may have to play catch-up on the extra work that piled up while you were ignoring your responsibilities together. Oh well; that happens sometimes. And what fun it is while it lasts! You'll gaze into each other's eyes, each of you feeling like you're staring at the world's most gorgeous person. You could even both put on a few pounds now, because cooking up rich, sumptuous meals or treats together is high on your list, while hitting the gym probably isn't. If there's something that one of you absolutely has to get done this week, you may need to spend some time apart just to make sure you don't distract each other.

Sunny Days Will Return

You two want to enjoy each other's company this week, but you've both got a little too much on your plates to really let loose and have a good time. When you go out to dinner together, conversation is stilted; you're both preoccupied with whatever it is that you need to get done, and you may keep sneaking glances at your watches. You'll both feel as if the other is being a little bit uptight -- not realizing that that's how you, yourself, are coming across. You do want to have fun, and you might even try to fake it, laughing at jokes that you don't find funny or trying to hold up your end of the conversation while making it perfectly obvious that your heart's just not in it. Why fake it? Why not just take a break from the fun and games for a week or so, to get some work done? Oh, yeah -- because you're both in the mood for fun. You just can't seem to make it happen. The best you two might be able to do under the current energy is to just let each other, and yourselves, off the hook. If your sweetie seems distracted or uninterested in the conversation, remember that you've been the same way lately. Sunny days will return soon, don't worry.

Overly Insistent

Your conversations will be quite intense this week -- but whether that's in a powerful, transformative way or just in an argumentative way remains to be seen. You're both a bit obsessed at the moment with your own perspectives; you think your way is the only way possible, and you'll argue your points down into the dust, if only to stand your ground and refuse to give in to the opposition -- er, to your sweetie. Remember? This is the person you adore, not the person you're in battle with! But you're both feeling a little bit insistent, and maybe even a little suspicious. You both want to dig deep; in an argument, you'll have a hard time letting things go, and you'll want to push down to the root of whatever's bothering you or your honey. That's a good impulse, but the problem at the moment is that you could wear each other and yourselves out. Try to remember that both of you are perceiving things through your own, unique veil of emotions. Whatever you believe or suspect, it's still through that filter, and may not be completely accurate. Why not turn your communicative intensity toward something more fun, like reading a mystery or solving a puzzle together?

Afraid to Make Waves

You two really want to get along this week -- which, contrary to logic, could actually make things a bit difficult between you. Neither one of you is feeling very strong at the moment; you're both privately feeling a bit insecure about the relationship, and that could make you be more conciliatory with each other than is strictly necessary. You might both agree to things that you're not really interested in or compromise (meaning, back down) on issues that you really should take a stand on. But you just don't want to get into an argument, or have any unpleasantness between you at all. It's understandable; fights and tension are no fun. But neither is fixing messes later that you created yourself by allowing yourself to be walked all over. Now, neither one of you is going to take advantage of the other purposefully; you've both got the same aim now, which is to get along and have a smooth connection. But do try to remember that keeping the peace isn't always the most important goal, especially if something truly important comes up between you this week. It's important to communicate clearly and honestly, especially about the big things, even if you're afraid you'll upset your honey.

A Rosy Dream of Love

The two of you are living out a dream this week -- a pleasant one, to be sure, but one that is distinctly separate from reality. You may both be putting each other and the relationship up on a pedestal, ignoring the very real flaws in each other and your bond; and for the moment, that's okay. But don't be surprised next week if the return of your normal sense of reality includes a feeling of letdown -- as if all those pretty dreams you wove together about your love are just flimsy fantasies, nothing that could ever stand up against the harsh reality of real life and relationships. Both perspectives are wrong, by the way; romance by definition includes a bit of fantasy and idealism, and relationships by definition are difficult, requiring dedication and maintenance. There's no reason to swing from dreamy idealism to pessimism, but that's just what you'll do if you're not careful to remind yourselves of the truth about things. Speaking of truth, be sure to be honest with each other this week, even if you think you're telling a little white lie for the sake of preserving the peace. Any untruths you tell now will come back bigger and much worse later.

Pushing Buttons

Since you two know just which buttons to push when it comes to getting under each other's skin, this period could be a sticky one. When you get together now, you've both got short fuses; you're feeling touchy and on edge, ready to react to even the smallest of provocations. Neither one of you is as able or willing as usual to take things in stride, and you've got very little sense of humor about irritations now. Deep down, you're both worried about being under the other's thumb in some way; you're feeling suspicious that you're being patronized or taken advantage of. But what you may not realize is that your sweetie is feeling the same way, and you're coming across to them exactly how you don't want them to treat you. Well, you'll just have to muddle through these few weeks as best you can. Expect arguments, or at least hurt feelings. You're also less able than usual to get out your feelings and issues in any efficient way; you're both feeling bottled up, as if you can't possibly talk things out in any satisfying way. So, clearing the air is out, for the time being. That will have to happen in a few weeks, when you're both feeling more solid, calm and emotionally stable.

Making Nice

You two may take a turn-the-other-cheek approach to the relationship this week, which might be just as well; otherwise, you could get into some serious arguments, and neither one of you is in the mood for that at the moment. Of course, arguments can be good, even if they're not pleasant; they clear the air and get issues out into the open. The fact that you're both more into preserving the harmony of the relationship now than you are in facing the harsh realities of your bond is okay, but there will be consequences later -- after all, you'll have to face things at some point, and often, putting it off can make it harder in the end. But for the moment, you're just not interested in making waves. You both want to get along, so you may find yourselves biting your tongue when normally you'd speak your mind, or agreeing to something that you're actually not into. The truth is, you're both feeling just the teeniest bit insecure about your bond, and you're both turning to a bit of forced harmony as a way to reassure yourselves that you've still got it. So, go ahead and make nice; there will be time later to address any issues between you.

Imperfections: The Spice of Love

Your shared illusions regarding your love affair may crumble during the next several months, as reality and idealism lock together in an uncomfortable standoff. This is a tense confrontation between the way things really are and the way you both wish they could be, and you'll both feel the disappointment of losing some of your most cherished ideals about each other. But facing the truth of a situation is a good thing, however difficult it might be, and this period is no different. Okay, so you don't communicate as well as you thought you did, or the passion you share doesn't burn quite as hot as it once did. You want different things in life; you're two different people, with individual goals that may or may not fit in with the overall scope of your relationship. And on top of it all, neither one of you is that sublime being the other once thought you were! So what? Isn't it the flaws and the unexpectedness and the spontaneity that make relationships interesting? This period challenges you to learn to revel in your differences, and in the surprises your bond brings to the table.

Petty Arguments

Arguments could be difficult to avoid this week. Touchy subjects will have a way of just coming up when you least expect them, and even if you two are feeling calm and centered when you're apart, there's something about the energy that you'll create when you get together that will lead to tensions and disagreements. You'll both have the tendency to exaggerate about things, which will only add to the problem; overstating your case only undermines its validity in the end, after all. But you've both got a case this week, and neither one of you is backing down from the way you see things or the way that you think that they ought to be. Take care when you're going places together, such as on a day trip or even just a simple trip to the grocery store. Even such innocuous mistakes as taking a wrong turn will cause arguments; you may each be better off doing the grocery shopping and other errands on your own! The more time you spend together this week, the more annoyed you're likely to become with each other. You may want to do things on your own until this troublesome energy passes, or you'll just get into petty arguments that you'll both regret later.

Mutual Indulgence

Romance and harmony will be at the forefront of both of your minds this week, and you'll both do just about anything to maintain that feeling of sweetness and indulgence -- even if it means ignoring your responsibilities or any issues that exist between you. Neither one of you is in the mood now for conflict; you want to get along, and you're only interested in togetherness. So much so, in fact, that you might suppress your own personality or your needs in favor of feeling like the two of you are peas in a pod. At least this transit is short! Because it wouldn't do to ignore your unique urges and opinions for long. For the moment, though, it's okay; togetherness is what you're after, and that's what you're creating by becoming each other's carbon copy this week. You'll probably both have fun as a result; just don't be surprised when, next week, you have to go back and clean up the messes you made when you ignored your diet or exercise routine in favor of hanging out with your honey, or when you have to make up extra hours at work to cover what you missed while the two of you were lost together in the land of romance and mutual indulgence!

In Need of Perspective

This could be one of those difficult periods that ultimately turns out to be a boon for your relationship, even if it doesn't feel like it while it's happening. Old issues and resentments are coming to the surface now, and you're both feeling the tension that results. Power struggles are likely; one or both of you could really start feeling possessive or even jealous of the other's time and attention, and you won't know how to calm yourself down or talk yourself back into some sense. All you might know how to do is to follow your impulses and lash out, starting arguments and creating hurt feelings. That's not the best way to deal with the current energy, of course. Your best bet might actually be to avoid conflict altogether, or at least to talk things out calmly; but is that possible? Maybe not just now. Thank goodness this period only lasts ten days! In a week or so, you'll be able to discuss things a little more rationally, but for now, don't expect too much out of yourselves or each other along those lines. Do try not to get into anything heated with each other, though. It's very likely that you're creating a mountain out of a molehill, and a little time and perspective will reveal the truth.

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!
