Relationships challenge you to
reconsider some of your basic assumptions this month. The New Moon in
quirky Aquarius on February 2 falls in your 8th House of Intimacy, which
is a reminder that an open mind is as important as an open heart to
nourish love in your life. You may think that you know someone well or
know exactly what you need in a partner but those ideas might be
outdated this month. This isn't about giving up core values but it is
about recognizing that the only safety in relationship is to be willing
to grow and discover new things about yourself and your partner.
If you really value someone, exploring an uncomfortable edge may be
the price to pay to keep the connection alive and interesting. This
Aquarian trend is also your chance to be freer with the one you love or
in seeking a desirable partner. The mood shifts when the Sun enters
watery Pisces on February 18, beginning a month-long period when
tenderness and fantasy can enliven your person life.
However, loving Venus' stressful square with stingy Saturn on
February 18 presents a barrier of self-doubt, a resistant partner or a
moment when you must be clear about your needs and stand up for yourself
before a softer and more playful period ensues.
