Today is an amazing day for relationships, if you are up to the challenge!
You see, Venus in relationship oriented Libra forms an opportunistic aspect to Saturn in Sagittarius. This gives us the ability to see the big picture and the ability to take control of our future.
And, who doesn’t want that?
I’ve been an astrological life coach for 25 years and I believe that we are in a relationship crisis. Perhaps, we could attribute this to many astrological configurations in the heavens, but I think for many, the fact that they have no plan for their relationships is the problem.
One of the major themes that seems to come up in my consultations lately is commitment based issues. A client will contact me and tell me that they are interested in someone and wonder whether or not the relationship is going to work or if he is going to begin to invest more in the future. In most cases, I will see that the significant other is happy with the relationship right now and really does not want a change. Of course, the client will tell me that the significant other has told them they are not ready to take the relationship to the next level and wants to know whether or not they should continue investing in it.
This is a logical and rational question. It deserves an answer. However, when I feel that the relationship dynamic is not going to change the way the client would like, they become frustrated because of the feelings of emotional connection in the relationship.
I then ask them a few questions. The first and primary one is – are you willing to wait until they are ready for the relationship that you want? In many cases, the significant other is not in a position to take on the full responsibility that relationship entails, and that is the reason why they are happy with the current relationship status. This isn’t because of fear of commitment; it’s because their life is not where they want it to be in order to move the relationships forward. If the client answers no, then of course I counsel them that it is best to move on and find someone that is aligned what they want right now. However, if the client tells me that they want to continue the relationship, it’s time for a serious discussion.
Then, you hear the hesitation. Silence happens. You can hear a pin drop on the floor.
The reality is that many are afraid of confrontation because they are afraid that they are going to lose the relationship entirely. But, if we don’t stand up for what we want out of our relationship and attempt to come to some form of accord, then we need to be happy and find some form of joy in the relationships current status.
The good news is that Venus sextile Saturn gives us the opportunity to have serious discussions. So, if you do decide that you want to confront the relationship, this would be a good time to do so. To my clients, I recommend them asking a couple of questions of their partner.
- Would you like to have a more solid and committed relationship in the future?
- What needs to change in your life for that to happen?
Now, based upon your partners answers you may have some other questions, but these are the two primary questions. They resolve the question as to whether or not they want a deeper relationship with you and it gives you a map to see where things are going to change. For example, if your partner says he would like to make more money and have a better job before he commits, then once he gets the new job you should begin to see things moving forward at that time. This gives you something to look for rather than just being continuously frustrated. It helps you make the relationship real.
On the business front, Venus in sextile Saturn combined with Mercury sextile Jupiter (the other aspect that happens today) is great energy for agreements and negotiations. If you need to sign contracts or documents, now would be the time to do so.
P.S. This will be the last update for a few days. We only have lunar aspects until Tuesday, so I am going to take this time to revamp my website.
