Your birth chart reflects your life path and all the intricate highways and byways you will travel from birth to death. And yet there is a lot that can be gleaned from your sun sign alone. Your sun sign is the overarching guide to your personality and is a guide to certain life lessons from which you can choose to learn, including the realm of love and relationships. It’s a fun exercise to examine the major lessons in love your sun sign offers.
Aries, try to cultivate patience in your personal relationships. If someone is emotionally wounded they are going to need time to heal. You cannot wave your magic wand and expect a miracle to occur. If you are the one who is the cause of their pain, you need to understand that not everyone is able to bounce back, forgive, and forget as easily as you do.
You fall heavily, it’s true, but remember that not every encounter is ‘the One’. Not every kiss is going to lead to happily ever after. It’s a good idea for you practice restraint before giving your heart so freely. How many times are you going to be hurt before you learn to hold a little of yourself back until you are sure?
In your search for perfect love, you may miss the 99% percenter standing right in front of you. Your lesson is to learn to focus on the positive aspects of people instead of the single negative that prevents you seeing their inner beauty. No-one is going to match up to all your requirements. It’s just not possible. Make the most of where you are with the one who is holding your hand. He or she might not be the right one, but they are perfect in this moment.
You can’t help it. You fall in love, you get hurt. The pain is unbearable and never ending. Don’t ever be tempted to give up on love though. Your warm heart and tender nature will find a home with someone very special. You simply have to wade through a lot of frogs until you discover your prince or princess. Thankfully, you are adept at healing yourself as you are at healing others with your tender consideration. Love yourself.
Stop comparing your relationships to those of other people. Your lesson in love is to learn that not all relationships are alike. In fact, each is unique. Just because your current one isn’t moving as fast as you like, doesn’t mean there’s something wrong. Or just because your partner is ‘different’ doesn’t mean love can’t survive. Celebrate uniqueness; it’s a wonderful thing. And… don’t give a roar what anyone else thinks.
Your kind and loving heart means you can, if you choose to, see past the external imperfections; the mask they wear to hide their pain; the persona they present to the world. You will learn to push all that to one side in order to reveal the pearl within. And once you can do that, you will do the same with everyone you fall in love with. Their flaws are part of their inner beauty. Love them.
There is nothing balanced about love. You might think it is a meeting of equal minds and emotions, but love (and life) is way messier than that. Sometimes it all works in your favor; other times it swings towards your partner. Learn to give and take. Adjust and readjust. Ebb and flow. Support and be supported. Sometimes you can control; other times you cannot. Go with it.
Your lesson is to learn to deal with the urge to be a martyr. You don’t have to subjugate your will in order to please another. It just doesn’t help if you refuse to assert yourself. If you give in to this, resentment will begin to bubble away under the surface and no love can survive resentment and resistance. Your partner will love you fully if you be yourself. Say what you want. Expect them to do their share. Ask them for help. That’s what a relationship is.
While you are busy searching for love, you might have tripped over the perfect person. OK, so your last relationship ended badly. How about you give some thought about why that happened? Did they love you for the wonderful person you are? Did they make a mistake? Are you sticking to your ‘principles’? Don’t be too set on ‘moving on’ before practicing forgiveness. And throw a little forgiveness your way too.
Love can take you by surprise. It snuck in when you were looking in the other direction. Appreciate it, even if you are not ready to express your feelings. Delight in the unfolding of it, even if words remain unspoken. Learn that not all love needs to be publicly announced. The deepest love lives within your soul. But when it’s right, when your heart is melting, let love have its way with you. Learn to trust.
Don’t be so busy sculpting your individuality to miss the chance of sharing love with another, Aquarius. Aligning with them doesn’t mean compromising your unique self. In fact, the opposite is true. They complement you, uplift you, and gently rein in those extreme, and sometimes damaging impulses of yours. Look for someone with their feet on the ground and your best interests at heart. It might not last forever, but, because you are changed a little by everyone you love, they will always form part of who you are. Make a little birdhouse in your soul.
Someone is not better than no-one, Pisces. You are not incomplete if you haven’t got love in your life. Your lessons in love are to understand that being solitary is not the end of the world and that your own company is not a black pit of terror. You don’t have to fill every waking moment with people to mirror your wholeness. You already have it. Allow love to flow to you when it comes. Don’t force it and don’t waste your love on unsuitable relationships.
