You've been under a kind of dark cloud for some time. A feeling that perhaps all that romance and idealism about love is simply a waste of time. How can it ever come true or be sustained when hearts get broken and people end up fighting or hating or leaving? But this year, Uranus is also giving you a sense of responsibility for your choices in love. It forces you to see that it's not the people or the things out there which 'do it' to you, but that they come into your world because of who you are. And with the willful energy of Jupiter, there's really no choice but to open up about your own personal doubts, liberate your inner voice, and show that you have as much right as anyone else to live according to your values. If they gel with those of your partner or lover, then that's fine. But make sure you're not just kidding yourself. Maybe you're so fearful of being alone that you agreed to play the game his way at the expense of your individuality? Are you actually missing out on true respect from someone who understands you have boundaries too? This year, consider whether you feel under some obligation from others, from your partner if attached, or if single, just from your own sense of, "well maybe I'll never find anyone." But believe me, there IS someone special out there, and it won't be very much longer before you realise who it is. I also know that you worry about not being good enough, not being wicked enough, or just not being enough of anything. And self-doubt takes over and prevents you from taking the plunge. But by the summer, you begin to realise that it's those who have the hardest battle against their own fears and insecurities, who often become the most self-reliant. The quest is on, and thanks to the powerful planetary activity in September, it's a treasure chest of goodness you're about to discover. Oh, if only you were more selfish! If only you were more confident and took on board the principle that you don't have to put other people's needs ahead of your own? Yeah, if only. But with electrifying energy in November, you start to think about the words 'joie de vivre.' This year, is where you need to focus and strengthen your resolve. In other words don't feel bad or guilty about taking pleasure, nor deny yourself the things you know would make you truly happy. Whoever your lover is, wherever it is that joy will lead you, it's your right to assert a healthy selfishness now and then. So why not start now?
