If the beginning of the year feels somewhat flat and static, brace yourself! You're mostly in the clutches of the aforementioned overheated work ethic, and it's taking you and your beloved away from spending quality time with each other into just working to keep things going.
With Saturn, ruler of your sign, positioned in devious Scorpio for most of the year, you might have to do a fair amount of digging and probing to unlock the doors of communication. It's not an impossible task, but you might have to stay dedicated to it for a while.
Take the time to get out, lock all the work distractions away in a box once in a while, and vent over the outer frustrations that life occasionally gives you. With this, both of you can let off some steam and be able to connect to the things that truly matter once again.
As the summer approaches and Jupiter sails into Leo on July 16 and Venus does too on August 12, fewer outside burdens keep wrenching you away from your loved one, giving you a chance to focus more steadily on your relationship. And by this time your previous efforts to establish a deeper connection will make you a master in the art of effective messaging!
