The planetary ruler of our thoughts and communications is in challenging aspect today, dear Cancer, and it’s important to watch for overstatements or otherwise blowing things out of proportion.

Promises made now may not be rooted in reality. Mind you, this clash can stir up some incredible enthusiasm and good ideas, even if these require some adjustments to come down to earth at a later date.

Keeping your expectations moderate can help a lot. A significant person in your life can be reacting strongly today as Venus and Pluto converge in your partnership sector.

Aim to learn from your differences as this is the best route towards increased intimacy. If someone is pulling up strong feelings in you, consider this a chance to understand yourself better.

You converse with nearly anyone today and yet guard your heart fiercely. Your current gregariousness might lead some people into thinking they are closer to you than they really are.

If you keep yourself closed off, you cannot genuinely connect. A small tear starts to form in the sieve you wield when you relate to others.

Someone you would normally filter out gets past your defenses before you can put up a fight. Ironically, being vulnerable exhibits genuine strength, not weakness.

As she moves into her final week in your relationship sector Venus, the planet of love knows that she is the last of the faster planets to move through.

Once Venus leaves next week, it will then become more about the journey. Yet until then, Venus is working to give your heart a voice and as she aligns with Pluto, this gives the planets of love and change a chance to work together.

Whether single, in a relationship or between relationships, the next seven days are all about setting your relationship expectations for the coming year.
