Ask yourself whether your perceived relationship tension is authentic in and of itself, or whether it’s some internal frustration of yours that isn’t being dealt with as it should today.

An emotional pain memory from your past may be at the root of your current angst, but even if you can’t process it fully, at least you can identify it that’s a start.

Your lover doesn’t deserve your misplaced irritation, so if you owe them an apology, do it now.

If tension is permeating your emotional world or strong within a love connection, then it might be necessary to take a step back to assess the cause of either or both.

Fortunately, the cosmos is keen to assist you to find an answer or two by encouraging you to detach yourself from any pressure or stress. Some time alone could prove revealing and reassuring.

The Moon is in Scorpio and in your 7th house of partnership, however today it is also squaring Mercury in your 4th house. You are being asked to realize the importance of spending downtime with your partner.

Allowing yourself to just be with one another in the empty stillness enables you to experience a level of closeness and intimacy that you wouldn’t be able to otherwise.

In this day and age people are so concerned and caught up in always “doing” something with their partners out of fear of boredom.

This results in you ending up missing out on the beauty of making it more about who you’re with and the quality of time you spend with them rather than where you are or what you’re doing.

Today would be a great time to allow yourself to spend some quality time with your partner at home and maybe just cuddle and cook them something special.
