Owning Responsibility in Your Relationship

Posted on July 18, 2016


Transit: Venus Trine Saturn

Venus is making a short-lived aspect to Saturn this week. Even though this is a fleeting thing (only lasting a few days), it could have a pretty profound influence on your love life. What you start - or end - now could have far-reaching effects. That’s all due to the influence of Saturn.

Saturn: The Lord of Karma

They call Saturn the ‘Lord of Karma’ for a reason - what happens when this planet is involved has a tendency to stick to you. Saturn is retrograde at the moment — which means it seems to be going backwards through the heavens — and the retrograde brings with it a unique set of challenges. It’s likely that what you’ve done in the past — good or not — could catch up with you, and because Venus is involved, this may well have something to do with relationships and the way you’ve treated others or the way they’ve treated you. Your money issues could raise their heads, too, if you’ve not been paying attention.

This is a time for assuming responsibility for your actions. If you messed up in the past, you need to own your mistakes. It will earn you esteem in the long run. If you prove you’re ready to go the distance, you can earn a lot of respect from people — and if there’s no respect when it comes to romance, then the relationship is doomed before it even gets off the ground.

Opportunities for Happiness

Look for ways that you can bring lasting pleasures into your life. If you’re creative, use this time to focus on your talents and make the most of your plans and ideas. You may even find that you can turn your talents to some extra income. This can help you to give structure to the upcoming weeks, and perhaps even bring you the right kind of attention from the right kind of suitors. You’re not going to know what you can do until you try, are you?

If you’re already in a committed romance, this extra effort on your part can deepen the bond between you, and cement your devotion to each other. Make each other a priority, and create something permanent. This is a great aspect for you to choose activities that you both enjoy, and then start to do them together. Even planning a social gathering or some kind of a party wouldn’t go amiss. The stars are aligned for you to enjoy yourselves.

If you’re not attached at the moment, then this is an excellent time for you to take the responsibility of romance into your own hands and make some positive changes. Yes, it would be easy to feel more lonely than usual during this period, but you have the integrity to overcome those doldrums if you’re really ready to look for love. This is a time for doing new things with new people. Friendships can deepen, and you could meet someone who becomes more than a friend in the weeks to come. Pursue what you enjoy doing. The charisma that your joy creates around you will make a very positive impression on people.

A Need for Discipline

Remember, what you start these next few days has a good chance to go the distance, so you’ll want to focus on something favorable. Don’t be too quick to voice your opinions, and make sure that you pay attention to what other people are saying. Finances could be a bit of concern, too, so don’t overspend, and make sure that any investments are reliable.

You may also need to make a conscious effort not to let your negative feelings get in the way of romance. Your own fears are your worst enemy, but you may face criticism from others. Just remember that an opinion is not fact. Don’t hesitate to take some time alone if you need it. However, if you’re sulking because someone else hurt your feelings, give them a chance to apologize. It would be easy to take a situation and turn it into a drama. Make sure you’re not feeding the crisis.

Develop the Relationships You Want

All of this can lead you to taking the responsibility of romance more seriously. That in turn can help you create the relationship that you wish to have, and manifest the life that you want to lead. If love is what you’re seeking, then take it seriously. Focus on making the positive changes, and watch how things start to turn around for the better!

Hi! I’m Charla Stone and I learned astrology and mysticism way back in the 1970s. I've spent the last four decades using the stars, tarot, runes, crystals, totems, and more to bring light and guidance to others. I’m just an old hippie at heart who has traveled the world to learn of its cultures. I’ve been published online and in print—which still rather surprises me, as this isn’t something I do, it’s just who I am! When I’m not writing or doing readings, I’m spending time in my garden or the art studio, or with my beloved dogs.
