The Moon is in Gemini today and in your 12th house however, it is also squaring Neptune in your 9th house. This configuration is highlighting the importance of having your romantic partnerships have a spiritual or even intellectual aspect to them.

This allows you and your partner to connect on so many more levels than just the physical and emotional ones.

When your relationship is something that provides your life with higher meaning and is a source of fulfillment, it enables you to much more easily be able to work through any negative or unpleasant feelings you have about your partnership.

Solitude brings you clarity of mind and heart today. A romantic interest may try to occupy your energetic space, but your “do not disturb” sign will remain highly visible, and you may have to remind them why it’s there.

If tensions rise, double down on your need for a personal time-out and respectfully let your sweetheart know you’ll come back into the fold when you’ve recharged your heart’s batteries. Be like the duck right now; let the rain fall off your feathers, no matter what.

Love and romance could have a “one step forward, two steps backward” feel at this time. You could find yourself feeling ambitious emotionally one minute, and then cautious or defensive the next.

This approach could serve you well right now because there are bound to be benefits with something unfolding or progressing at a pace that suits you. As long as that one step forward is taken, a delightful destination awaits eventually.
