Love is a roller coaster
The year 5(2+0+2+1) when applied to love can be unpredictable as well as exciting. It is a year usually associated with changes in life direction, breaking free from norms, adventure, taking the off beaten path, reflection and learning from past mistakes. Now throw love into the mix – doesn’t it all sound like an exciting roller coaster ride? Hopefully a thrilling one. Let’s see how the year ahead unfolds in the love department for each star sign below!
Aries (Mar 21– Apr 19)
Love and life feels like it’s in celebratory mode this year. If you are in a relationship, you will be in the best year of your marriage or partnership. There is balance and calm within the relationship. You or your partner may be indulging one another in lavish gifts and experiences to show your appreciation for one another. But it’s not all about the expensive gifts, sometimes giving the gift of time and space may be just what will nurture your relationship this year. If you are on the hunt for love, then you may need to seek it in a way you would not normally do. Joining an online community of like minded individuals may help or picking up a new hobby. The key is to put yourself in unusual circumstances or try something that’s a bit off the beaten path for yourself.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
You can’t always be in control or be on top of everything when it comes to relationships this year. You will feel worn if you are constantly trying to keep up appearances. To ease the pressure on your relationship this year, begin to learn to let go and give space. Learn to trust that things will still be ok even though you are not putting on your best act. Relax and be yourself. If you wish to have a duvet day, just do it. Also your partner isn’t going to love you any less if you break wind once in a while! Lol! This will apply to those looking for love as well; the best advice is to be yourself and don’t try to appear like you have got it all together. That is a sure recipe for a breakdown.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20)
The biggest lesson you can take from this year is to be patient and to be kind to yourself. You haven’t had a string of great relationships in the past and this has left you feeling rather vulnerable in the trust department. If someone is being genuine to you, you may find it hard to accept the sincerity of someone. The good news is, things are about to change. This may be the year where you decide to take control of your issues and begin to open up and face your fears and embark on a journey of self-healing. The result will be a more confident you, one who is able to enjoy being in a relationship or find a relationship where you can be at ease and not try to build walls.
Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
There will be shifts and changes in relationships this year for Cancer. You may be in the throes of healing from past deception or betrayal or you may be in the midst of trying to gain a different perspective to the state of your current relationship. Trust your instincts on this one and be honest with yourself. Not all relationships are meant to last at times while some can stand the test of time. If it’s a timeout you need, then give yourself the time and space to gain clarity. You will more than likely be rewarded if you work through your emotions rather than reacting to them.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
If you are single, you will be making plans to get a little more serious in settling down. You’ve reached a point of feeling discontent with your options and feel ready to stop playing along and get down to the real business of monogamy. If in a relationship or married, there are ideas about how to make improvements to ensure a long lasting union. The bond hasn’t weakened or the love fizzled out, you are very much in it together but determined to fix the areas that seem to feel lacklustre between the both of you.
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
You’ve had your emotional release and now it’s time to move forward albeit with caution. You are not about to jump at the first opportunity for love but you are going to take your time at discovering if the match is a comfortable one. You are going to practice moderation when it comes to putting yourself out there as available for a relationship. You aren’t going to shy away from an opportunity for a possible romantic connection but will set a reasonable amount of time to work out if there is a chance of a happily ever after. If you are in a relationship, efforts are made to inject life back into the relationship to rediscover one another; perhaps with activities that you can do as a couple, like dancing for example.
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Your love life takes an interesting turn this year. You’ve got options interestingly enough. And you have suitors vying for attention. Tread carefully though if you are planning to juggle your options. It’s important you devise a clear plan of action before things get murky and you lose both opportunities! If you are in a relationship, temptation may be around if things have reached a plateau with your partner. Looking outside of your relationship isn’t going to be the solution. Instead, work out a plan on how you can get things on track again.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
You have lost interest in the usual methods of finding love and resort to out of the box methods to do so. The thrill of shifting the start point of a relationship piques your curiosity. Scorpios are well known for their sensuality but you seem to be downplaying that characteristic by toning down the intensity in your approach. Pausing and reflecting will open up a different picture to the dating game. This may just be what you need to find the one for yourself. If you are already in a marriage, there may be thoughts to pause things or step back to take in a different perspective. Whichever direction the relationship takes, the first step in pausing to reflect on the state of the relationship will be crucial. Decisions should be made based once you have had an objective view on things.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
It’s not a case of accepting what is being handed to you on a plate anymore. Your self-confidence is in a place where you are not willing to settle for anything less than what you think you deserve. You haven’t made the best choices in the past simply because the imposter syndrome has plagued your psyche about what your self-worth was. You have crystal clear vision about who your ideal partner should be and will not stop at settling for anything less. If you are in a relationship, your partner should get ready for a new and improved version 2.0 of yourself. Your self-realisation and removal of self-doubt may be well received or not by your partner. This will depend on how receptive your partner will be to change. It certainly changes the dynamics. But give it time and you should be on your way to a much more healthier relationship.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
You may have been experiencing loneliness for a while but it doesn’t mean you are going to jump on the next boat that will sail your way. It isn’t really your style and plus you got better standards than that. You aren’t the type to be taken by those who offer flattery either. You are able to see right through that immediately. What excites you though, is someone who is intellectual and speaks with authority or carries an aura of taking no nonsense. The good news is such a character does come along. You won’t be feeling like electricity running through you as your eyes lock or hear fireworks. But it will feel more like a gentle wave that feels calm and provides the sense of comfort that you have been seeking. The wait will be worth it!
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Aquarius has a way of willing their ideal partner to life. You don’t just dream about things happening though it starts that way. If there is something you are after, you are sure to construct a plan and not give up until you have found what you are looking for. It feels like this is the year your luck shifts for the better in your love life and you could be striking gold; meeting your ideal partner that is. If you are in a relationship, you are relentless at devising plans and methods to make it the relationship you want. Don’t be too overbearing however, this may put your partner off.
Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
The solution for uncertainty in your relationship is to give your partner space and time. That’s your idea of reinstating harmony in the relationship. But it may not necessarily work this time. There may be a deeper root to the problem than you think. It’s time to get creative in your relationship to achieve the fulfilling relationship that you have always seeked. If you are in search of your love, there may be issues that need to be addressed. Seeking therapy or just opening up to someone about a pattern in your past relationships may just provide the light bulb moment you have been hoping for to put a stop to repeating negative patterns.
