If you’re struggling a bit in love right now, you’ve got to stop forcing things. Having hope is great, but having set expectations of exactly how things should turn out will likely leave you disappointed.

Loosen your grip on your current situation and be open to some surprises — things could actually turn out even better than you’d hoped, if you’ll let them. Love happens when and how you least expect it.

It would be helpful to make some effort to recognize the limits that exist regarding how far you can – or should – push a certain romantic or relationship issue.

You might feel gung-ho on one level to throw caution to the wind and hang whatever consequences arise from a forceful approach, but if you heed the inner voice urging you to be patient and sensitive, then that’s the voice to listen to!

The Moon is in Sag and in your 8th house today, it is also squaring Neptune in your 11th house. This is highlighting how having friendship be a foundation of your romantic partnership helps allow the relationship to be more solid and trustworthy.

People underestimate he importance of having a friendship with their significant other, however if you wouldn’t be friends with someone for who they are, why would you be partners with them for the long term?

Sharing that connection with your partner allows you to feel more secure and safe within the relationship which in turn permits you to achieve greater depth and intimacy with them.
