Right when you think it’s okay to start getting excited about a romantic journey that you want to take with a love interest, something comes along to throw a wrench in the works today.

Thankfully, this is not some cosmic sign that your love connection is jinxed, doomed or otherwise in trouble. In fact, your motivation to keep things moving in the right direction is admirable and quite effective.

But until you figure out how to speed up the progress, friends or workmates may find you more pensive and preoccupied than usual.

Matters of the heart seem to be siphoning all of your focus right now. Do your best to balance your work life and your love life until your passionate plans come together in earnest.

Any changes made to your lifestyle could have a noticeable and potentially significant effect on your emotional world.

After all, who doesn’t want to look good naked?

Your energy and passion levels could be boosted and help you connect with others or one person in particular who will admire your gung-ho, ‘can do’ attitude. Glowing on the outside means you’re glowing inside.

Does your romantic partnership provide your life with meaningfulness? Does it connect you spiritually to something bigger than you, something that you believe in?

These are good questions to reflect on today as the Moon is in Capricorn and in your 9th house. It’s so beautiful when you feel that your connection with your partner goes beyond just a physical, emotional or even mental level.

Having that sense of sacredness be a part of your partnership allows it to fulfill you on so many more levels. It is good to make sure that those you decide to commit yourself to, have similar beliefs as yours.

This is not to say that you need to have identical life philosophies or agree on everything, but it definitely makes a relationship more meaningful and likely to last longer when you are able to create a life with your partner that is built on your fundamental beliefs.

Also, reflect on how you can broaden your perspectives through opening your mind up to different philosophies offered by your partner.
