This might be a trying week in matters of the heart. You may feel more of that unhealthy need to control or manipulate your partner thanks to Venus being opposite Pluto on Tuesday. Another possibility is that you'll feel a strong vibe that your partner is trying to strong-arm you, and if so, you're not likely to react very well. Remember, with Venus-Pluto that intense, powerful, and vulnerable, feelings are triggered. The need to own someone stems out of an insecurity. Rise above it.
You and your lover might engage in a battle of the wills early in the week connected to a domestic matter. Trying to bend one another to do what either of you insists is the best course of action will only backfire now. Remember that love is not control. Fortunately, by Sunday, you and your mate will be able to refocus your passionate feelings towards each other. Expect a romantic tryst that leaves the both of you completely satisfied.
Trying to convince your lover to do your bidding this week will only erode anything positive the two of you share. Don't think for one moment that your mate will not see through the slick veneer of manipulation behind your words as you say something specifically to trigger a mental insecurity in him or her. Making someone else feel as if they are making the wrong decision simply to ensure they make the decision you prefer is beneath you. Don't go there.
There might be a financial tug of war between you and your mate. Your partner might see that you're doing well these days and the cash is flowing. While he or she will certainly be happy for you, your partner may also feel that he or she is the one best suited to handle money-making decisions. Remind your love that you are allies in life which means the decisions about your joint finances are meant to be made together.
You and your partner may feel as if you're on a frustrating seesaw this week. On Tuesday, Venus, which is now in your sign, will oppose Pluto, which is now in your relationship sector. As a result, the shadow expression of the deep, intense love you share is likely to emerge. Your partner may find that his or her deepest insecurities about loving and possibly losing you are triggered. As a result, the need to hold on tightly might occur. The problem is that you'll feel suffocated. This won't work.
You might think that the best way to show love for your partner this week is to prove yourself indispensable. If you can demonstrate that your mate needs you in order to get through his or her day, then you may feel a strange sense of security within the relationship. Unfortunately, this approach will only create an unhealthy co-dependency. Instead, focus on expressing to your partner how amazing your life is because he or she is in it. Display pure love without any agenda and magic will happen.
The ugliest expression of love might threaten to reveal itself this week, sabotaging the joy you and your lover have the capacity to feel together. You or your sweetheart might feel an obsessive need to control the other, as one example. If there is any hint of insecurity either of you feels about this relationship, you may suddenly find yourself in a situation where you feel more uncomfortable than content. Insist on healthy distance between you if this happens. Love is not ownership.
Although your career and family life might feel frustrating early in the week, you'll look forward to the weekend when you can unwind and have plenty of fun with friends. In fact, there's a strong indication that you'll attend a party or other event and meet someone with whom you share a strong physical attraction. Both of you will have the same mindset: having fun and being in the moment together. Go for it. Life is meant to be lived.
If you have any suspicions that your love has lied to you, or even worse, betrayed your trust, you may feel tempted to resort to sneaky tactics in order to catch him or her. This might be anything from checking his or her phone or computer for information to other spying methods you try to justify as research. Do yourself a favor and don't go there -- it's about as low as you can get. You might be tempted, but you'll only make yourself even more paranoid. If you have this much mistrust about your partner, ask yourself why you're even in a relationship.
You might be celebrating your partner's financial success one moment this week, and then trying to control it the next. If you and your mate have a significant disparity between your earnings, this might be more of an issue than if you're on a more even keel. Although you may be sharing resources, the trick to navigating this week's energy is not so much about gaining the upper hand with joint finances, but minding your own finances instead. Focus on empowering your own cash flow and let your partner worry about his or hers.
With Venus still touring your partnership sector, you and your sweetie are likely in a phase of added harmony and support. This week, however, there is a tricky energy that looms in the atmosphere, threatening the gushy, warm feelings of contentment between you and your mate. If you have any temptation to control your lover or the direction of your relationship, you may want to hold back. You'll only create problems that wouldn't otherwise be.
Mars is currently moving through your partnership sector, infusing your relationship with plenty of sexy spice. Although the two of you might be arguing more, you can be certain that these quarrels are only masking sexual tension that you'll quickly resolve. This Sunday it's possible that you and your lover will decide it's time to take a spiritual quest together. You might also be making plans for an exciting overseas vacation. Nice!
Mercury is now moving through your relationship sector in retrograde motion, causing all sorts of potential mishaps between you and your mate. Do yourself a favor and clarify yourself in all conversations even if you think your partner gets it. More than likely, he or she won't. Also, if you are dating someone new, you might feel frustrated with a meddling friend. He or she may not like this person and will try to sabotage the budding romance. Handle it.
