It’s all about the space in a relationship.
Nothing kills love faster than jealousy, possessiveness, and the inability to give each other space. Why? Because distance is necessary for individual growth and for the ability to see each other and your relationship for what it truly is.
Let’s dive in and see how your relationships will fare this week.
ARIES: 7 of Swords
This week, avoid confrontation and evade conversations with your partner that could lead to conflict. Your mind needs some space right now. So, beat around the bush instead of addressing the problem front and center.
I know that sounds like an odd advice. But with Mercury in introvert mode this time of the year, your relationship will fare better because of this.
TAURUS: 3 of Pentacles
Taurus, the relationship you are in with your partner is for the long haul. At least, that’s how you want it to be. But investing time and energy into building a relationship does not mean becoming codependent and possessive of each other.
Instead, look at your relationship as a collaboration between two people who are bringing a unique set of skills to the table, and realize that this equation will cease to exist if you do not allow each other to take time off from the relationship to experience the world alone.
GEMINI: Page of Wands
We all have our passions, Gemini. Some of us are passionate about writing. Others are passionate about singing, dancing, painting, traveling, and eating food. But you know as well as I do that while it can be fun introducing your partner to your passions and watching them get hooked, true bliss is only found when we have the solitude to give our full attention to our passions.
So, gift yourself that solitude this week. Find some time all for yourself and do what makes your heart sing. Your relationship will benefit from these experiences, even if you don’t know how right now.
CANCER: 9 of Swords
Unfortunately, that’s a sign of insecurity. A sign that you aren’t comfortable in your own skin and feel that one day your partner will wake up and realize that you aren’t all that great (because deep inside you feel you aren’t all that great). And this insecurity makes you cling to them desperately so they can never walk away.
The truth, Cancer, is that you are right. Your partner will indeed leave you and find someone better one day. After all, why would someone choose to love and value you if you don’t think you are worth loving and valuing deep inside? So, if giving space makes you insecure, start by working on your self-esteem. You and your relationship will both benefit from it.
LEO: 9 of Cups
Leo, you love being in your partner’s presence because they make you feel like you are the best thing that happened to them in the world. But beware of deriving your sense of worth from how your partner sees you because the day you have a fight, which you will eventually, your partner will not see you as fondly as they see you now, and that will cause a huge blow to your ego.
So, enjoy your partner’s attention for now. But also know that you aren’t what your partner thinks you are, but what you think you are.
VIRGO: 6 of Cups
Did you forget your friends after you got into this relationship, Virgo? If yes, it’s time to mend ties with them. After all, you can’t expect your partner to be your one and all in life. You also need your friends.
So take some time off from your relationship this week and go on a night out (or a lunch) with your friends. Reconnecting with them after so long will do your heart a lot of good in the long run.
Libra, have you been lying to yourself about your relationship? Were you pretending that the two of you were madly in love even though deep inside you knew it was all a facade? If yes, then it’s all going to come crashing down this week. The truth always comes out in the end.
SCORPIO: Knight of Pentacles
So, give yourself some space this week and focus on the material aspects of your life. You will fare much better that way.
SAGITTARIUS: Princess of Pentacles
Too much space can kill a relationship, Sagittarius. After all, how can you build a relationship if you are not around most of the time?
So, focus on your relationship this week. Give your partner your full attention and strengthen the bond between the two of you that excessive distance has made weak. You will thank yourself for it later on.
CAPRICORN: 8 of Cups
Capricorn, this week take some time out of your relationship to introspect. Go deep within and figure out what this relationship means to you and how it has changed you as a person so far. It might be difficult at first since you are not used to introspecting so much, but it will make everything really clear in the end.
AQUARIUS: 8 of Pentacles
Sometimes taking some time away from a relationship can be less about introspection or pursuing your passions and more about weaving a web that draws your partner closer to you. After all, distance does make the heart grow fonder.
Does that interest your twisted mind, Aquarius? If you are grinning, you got what I was trying to say.
Be prepared to ask for some space to introspect when that happens. How will you know what your heart truly wants when you are too distracted by everyone and everything else around you?
