The person who is closest to you will be your greatest and most trusted confidante today.

Lean on your mate for strength and support, especially if you’re shaken up by the sudden reappearance of an ex-lover in your life.

This former partner may try to overwhelm you with gossip, negativity, or intimidation: Don’t let their energy get to you, especially if you have someone in your corner who’s got your back.

Watch your spirit right now, because there are psychic vampires out there, ready to strip you of your energy.

Today’s New Moon influences partnerships and commitments, providing you with an ideal time to wipe a slate clean.

You have a chance to push any conflict aside and, if necessary, heal a rift with a lover or potential sweetheart.

Make the most of this fresh start. Challenges really can be turned into opportunities for growth and healing with the right blend of willingness and patience.

Is it easy for you to experience intimacy with your romantic partner? What are the things that scare you the most in your partnership that may be preventing you from experiencing as much closeness and depth with your lover? Ask yourself these important questions today as the Moon is in Sag and in your 8th house.

True intimacy is being able to share those “darker” or less happy parts of yourself with your significant other.

Unfortunately, this is something we are not conditioned to do, we are told directly or indirectly by society that there are parts of ourselves that are best not to be shared with others, because otherwise they will leave us or judge us.

Therefore, this is a great time for you to practice bringing more of that dialogue between you and your partner, making sure that both of you feel safe and trust one another to bring those aspects of yourselves into the partnership.
