You are expecting quality in everything you touch and with everyone you encounter, but your demands can leave you disappointed sometimes.

Complicating this desire for excellence is your current wish to stretch beyond self-imposed limitations in your love life.

The urge to open up to a new level of intimacy with someone you’re involved with pushes you out of your comfort zone.

This can be very rewarding, because you’re actively building trust with someone you love, and having a heart-to-heart conversation can be so illuminating and inspiring at this time.

How you respond to tension trying to manifest in your emotional world or a close connection will determine how strongly it does so – and how long it lasts.

Neither your head nor heart may have all the answers you need, but don’t let that stop you from improvising or applying a trial and error approach.

There is magic in spontaneity, and the more willing you are to go with the flow and not plan or rehearse your responses, the sweeter coming developments could be.

The Moon is in Aries and in your 12th house, however it is also squaring Mercury in your 3rd house of communication.

This planetary configuration is highlighting that while it is important to share the more private and hidden parts of yourself with your partner and be in open communication about them, it is also important to be able to talk about other things. For example, common mental pursuits and interests, it doesn’t always have to be all so “serious” and “deep”.

It is healthy and even necessary to be able to talk to your partner about most things, even the ones you would consider little or insignificant. It is good to make sure that you and your partner have clear/open communication and mental resonance with one another.
