In this newest chapter of your love life, a weight has been lifted from your shoulders. You’re no stranger to romance or commitment, but this new relationship is the healthiest you’ve ever had, the most functional, the kind that recharges your batteries rather than drains them. Love no longer feels like a chore, and you’re learning that the amount of effort you have to waste on someone is no longer the yardstick by which you have to assess the intensity of your love for them.
You’re not a salmon swimming upstream, and love isn’t something you have to battle tooth and nail to achieve. Yes, conflict is what keeps life interesting. It’s part of attraction and infatuation, and it’s what creates suspense in a rom-com whose conclusion gives us that happy ending sensation right before the titles roll. But when everything aligns, when we’ve developed and learned to speak and ask for what we want, it’s amazing how quickly those obstacles can be overcome with the emotional skills in our toolkit. You’ll be surprised at how smoothly you can sail into the sunset.
Taurus, the new chapter you’re beginning this month is all about responsibilities. All the clichés about love being difficult to come true, but not in the way you expect. You’ve gotten through the difficulties of acclimatization, learning each other’s tastes and how to fight in a healthy way. You can tell “angry” cleaning from routine cleaning, and you’re no longer in the power struggle phase of your relationship. The job that lies ahead of you is a shared burden; a project that can only be completed by you both. No one is a dead weight while the other carries the load of two persons along the road.
You are partners who have devised a strategy that you are now ready to put into action. You may find yourselves dividing and conquering at times, letting each other’s strengths shine through, bridging gaps where each of you struggles, but at the end of the day, when you are both fatigued, you congratulate each other on a job well done. You rejoice and enjoy the outcomes together, brought closer than ever by this shared experience.
This new phase of your love life finds you at odds with yourself, Sagittarius. You aim to project the impression of this easygoing person who is never upset or inconvenienced by anything. You try to appear mature about everything, saying things like “it just didn’t work out” instead of admitting how desperately you wanted it to. Your pride and stubbornness keep you quiet when you most want to speak up. You must first learn to recognize your own feelings before you can argue their case to anyone else.
When you admit that your own feelings matter, that the relationship matters, and that you are deserving of reciprocation, love, and happiness, you will learn to stand your ground and advocate for yourself. No one will take you seriously unless you take yourself seriously. There is so much inside of you that you keep concealed in the name of not being a burden, but you end up drowning in a sea of “what ifs” because deep down you know the answer to your own questions. That if you simply spoke up, things would be different.
The new chapter in your love life is one in which you are more comfortable than ever expressing your affection in public. After the soft launch and consumer testing, you’re ready to plaster your love on metaphorical highway billboards and national airways. You’re confident and committed, and things have been so serious for so long that there’s no point in holding back any more.
You’re not usually comfortable being so open, and your humble nature avoids anything that could be considered flaunting, but you’ve finally realized that the happiness you feel is simply too great and too beautiful to hold back or diminish in any way. If somebody is jealous or concerned about your success, it is their problem, not yours. You have nothing to prove to the world; everything about this relationship is built on the two of you being real. Nothing is staged. You’re just so happy and pleased that you’re willing to let the rest of the world see it because it’s something that can’t be controlled.
