How to Uncover Roadblocks in Your Relationship

SOMETIMES LOVE THRILLS THE BODY AND FILLS THE SOUL; IT CAN PUT A BOUNCE IN YOUR STEP AND A SMILE ON YOUR FACE NO MATTER THE WEATHER. OTHER TIMES, LOVE JUST STINKS.
That's where Our Relationship Challenges report comes in. If you've been together for a while and things aren't looking quite so rosy anymore, Our Relationship Challenges can help. 

After all, facing your problems is half the battle, but sometimes that's the hardest part. Not because you don't want to face them -- you do -- but because they mystify you. You try to get along with your honey, and you know they have good intentions too. Yet somehow, things just don't go as well as you'd like.

Friction, Differences, and Karma Meters

The Friction, Differences and Karma Meters: every couple faces a certain set of challenges, and the number and type of challenges determine whether your relationship will be merely interesting or out-and-out difficult. At The Astrologer, we've broken down these challenges into three sections: sources of friction, the major differences between you, and the karmic ties from past lives that draw you together today.

On the first two meters, Friction and Differences, a score somewhere in the middle is probably best. Friction can be a good thing -- after all, the same energy that makes you lust after each other also makes you fight. And we all know that a good argument, like good sex, clears the air and lets you know your passion is alive! The same goes for differences between you in the ways that you think and view the world: These contrasts keep the relationship dynamic.

Karma, on the other hand, isn't such a great thing, even if your past-life bonds were positive ones. This lifetime is... Read more

From Friction To Fulfillment

Venus square Sun

WarmToo Warm?

Mmmm, yummy. Your relationship is the kind of warm place puppies like to curl up in. Both you and your sweetie are kindhearted and loving, sensual and sexy. Other people envy what you've got. But at the same time, there are cracks on the inside of your cocoon that don't show from the outside. You can be a bit of a stomper and a door-slammer -- and you've never been known for your fidelity. Think about it: if you actually have to set up rules for what's cheating and what's not, you're skirting close to a dangerous line. Your lover, on the other hand, can be self-righteous, vain, and impulsive. In a lot of ways, you rub each other the wrong way, picking stupid fights with each other, viewing each other's flaws with contempt. The answer lies in good old-fashioned hard work. Roll up your sleeves and schedule some time to work on your issues. Actual changes in your habits and behaviors are needed this time, not just a whole lot of hot air and empty promises. The reward for the work will be a deepened connection that'll grow with time. The penalty for doing nothing will be a crash and burn.

A Power Couple

Color you green, because you're feeling possessive and ill-tempered. You landed yourself a big fish this time: powerful, magnetic, impressive. Every head turns when you walk in the room with this special someone on your arm, and you like it. You've been basking in the reflected glow of your sweetheart, no less so because you give off a vibrant, confident sparkle of your own. Truly you are a power couple, a pair others envy. But behind the scenes all is not so sweet. Both you and your sweetie tend to be imperious, fractious, spiteful. Worse, your usual confidence has been shaken by your lover's secretive ways. You can't seem to get your mojo working, you feel out-of-sorts and angry. You may even view your partner's behavior as abusive. The secret to managing this difficult love relationship is to exhibit a little more patience, and a lot more equanimity. Your partner wouldn't need to pull away if you weren't demanding so much reassurance. Become the person you'd like to come home to and your mate will be home more often.

Sun square Mercury

A Mystifying Love

How often have you stared at your sweetie with a gaping jaw, wondering what on earth they could be thinking? Misunderstandings haunt your pairing. Both of you mean well, but at times it's as if you're speaking different languages. And you, with your galloping ego, get all huffy puffy, fueling the friction that's always simmering between the pair of you. You rage. Your lover clams up. A roaring silence stretches between you, both of you feeling too stubborn to break the tension.But the power to fix this relationship lies in your hands. You picked yourself a mercurial, restless, enigmatic lover for a reason -- you find the challenge intriguing and sexy. Go with it. Learn to be comfortable with a bit of mystery. You're never going to wallow in perfect, contented understanding with your sweetie; instead you'll have an exciting lover who stirs you up. Argue and debate as a prelude to passion rather than letting your quibbles put a wedge between you. You could have something very, very hot if you're willing to forego serenity.

Sun square Jupiter

Lucky in Love

It's lucky for you that you and your mate can laugh, both at each other and at yourselves. That's a strong plus in a relationship that is sometimes challenging. You're so impressed with your mate, and rightly so. Your lover is generous to a fault, stately, wise, and larger than life. You tend to be just a bit egotistic, and your sweetie helps keep you grounded and sane, even as you encourage each other to dream big and go after what you want. But it seems at times that you're at cross purposes. Fate throws obstacles in your way, or each of you makes choices that create chaos and friction. You get annoyed with each other too easily, each accusing the other of being self-centered, overconfident, so driven to meet the goals you've set that you lose sight of the big picture. And you know what? Each of you have a point. You could be bringing out the best in each other, but instead you waste your energy on silly disagreements. So stop the fighting. Throw your attention towards what you love about your lover. And laugh a little. Because once you two start laughing together, you can survive anything.

Mercury square Pluto

Jealous Much?

Yikes! Your love relationship can be a rather tense place to be. Your partner may or may not be playing a little footsie with someone else. Whether it's gone all the way is unclear, but what is crystal clear is the tension it's caused. Pockets are gone through. Emails are intercepted. Phone bills are pored over. It's all so tedious and tacky, isn't it, two lovers treating each other like enemy agents instead of best buddies? Yet the friction keeps erupting. Both of you analyze just about everything the other says and does, seeking hidden meanings. Is that argument really over the laundry, or is it about something deeper?Chill out Sherlock. The problem at the root of all this instability is your insecurity, coupled with your partner's secretiveness. Take these words to heart: no one who is happy will stray. In order to hold on to the one you love, you have to be the kind of person that you'd like to come home to. Don't demand and bluster and question; be the easy, lively you that you are when you're running on all your cylinders. You'll see very shortly that your lover is wooed by your wiles alone.

Mercury square Mercury

Opposites Attract

This relationship hasn't been easy from the beginning, and frankly, it's a wonder you've made it this far. You and your lover lack common ground. You have different beliefs and attitudes -- it could be you adhere to different political affiliations, or don't share common views on morals and ethics. In any case, your differences of opinion drive you apart. You start out in a friendly debate, but as both of you yak and yak away you cease to listen to each other. You feel you're constantly being interrupted, as if you can't get your words out. You don't see eye-to-eye, and it seems like you never will. But don't be so quick to turn your back on this sweetie. While it's true that things are sometimes strained between you, there is much potential for your future. Though it's hard for you to understand each other, you must keep working on it. In your heart of hearts, you share more than you realize. Keep on plugging. Keep on talking. Try to listen, and hear the intent behind the words as well as what's being said. You could really bring out the best in each other, somehow, someday.

Ups and Downs

Did you look before you leapt into your lover's arms? Or did you just follow your heart and your foolish, fierce emotions? There's a lot that draws you to your lover, including the incendiary passion you feel in each other's arms. But you're equally repulsed by your lover's unpredictable behavior. You're unable to get the commitment you seek. Heck, you're not even sure you know who your lover really is. Sometimes you sense an unfathomable distance between you. Is it love you're feeling, or is it simply an infatuation that can't last?This is not one of those loves that's cozy and sweet, like a cat curled up by a fireplace. Rather, you've grasped on to a live wire. You are faced with a choice -- you can keep holding on, enjoying all that is electric and exciting and thrilling about your pairing. Or you can let go and relax into a quieter, easier existence. If you choose the former, you're going to have to learn to ask fewer questions, demand less, ride out changes and tumult rather than expecting or asking for security. It's an amazing ride -- if you have the stomach for the ups and downs.

Saturn square Sun

Your Past, Intruding

You bagged yourself one great big trophy of a lover, but it doesn't mean your mate's easy to live with. Intense and compelling, magnetic and driven, your sweetie's a star but requires special handling. The two of you are often at odds. There's tension between you. Frictio. Fights. You want things defined and taped down; your lover's more of a 'If it feels good, do it' type. And that makes you feel insecure. So you say too much, demand reassurance, embarrass yourself. Here's a tip: When you ask if you're loved or adored, you suddenly become a lot less lovable and adorable.Much of the problem is related to your past. Think carefully -- are you unconsciously repeating patterns? Are you treating your lover more like a parent than a partner? If so, you'll find your attitude causes problems galore, not the least because a lover's supposed to be a friend and an equal, not an authority figure to rebel against. Examine your actions in light of your childhood. Seeing some familiar patterns now? It's time to move forward. What's done is done, and you can't mar your future in futile attempts to change history.

Mercury square Jupiter

Out of Balance

It's not that you don't love and adore your precious one with every ounce of your being. It's just that if you have to listen to that superior tone of voice for one more second, you're going to put your fist through a wall. Your matchups have a way of turning into mismatches -- with your expansive, confident partner running roughshod over playful little you. It's possible that your lover is significantly older than you, or in some way more worldly -- better educated? more advanced careerwise? Certainly you feel at a disadvantage next to your sweetie, more like a student listening to a teacher's discourse, or a kid being lectured by a parent than a true partner. On the other hand, there is a lot your lover can teach you if you're able to walk the fine line between willing acolyte and bullied wretch. Demand respect from your partner. A polite tone of voice is a must, and snide remarks won't be tolerated by you. Once you begin standing up for yourself, the balance of power in the relationship will shift, and you can both start enjoying the pleasant buzz of your stimulating love relationship.

Friend or Foe?

Jupiter opposite Uranus

You're Suspicious

This one's knocked you off your pins. You're usually the confident one who breezes through life and love with admirable ease. But this time you've chosen a lover who excites you so wildly, who sets your nerve endings aflame -- but who can't be trusted even as far as you can throw them. What's your lover so darned secretive about? Who are the people who call and leave messages? Where is your lover when you're not about? The questions tickle your brain, and, embarrassingly, spill out of your mouth. You get no reassurance, only detachment. So you want to hold on tighter and thus the cycle continues.Part of the problem could lie in the way you're pushing to have everything all nailed down and tied up. You want to know your lover's intentions. But your lover isn't even sure of those intentions. So why push? You must know by now that it's getting you nowhere. Why not ride instead on your self-assured side? Be a little more mysterious and sufficient yourself. Your lover will come hither if you can ease off on the pressure, and you can start a whole new positive cycle instead of continuing your negative one.

Why Are We Involved, Again?

Sun quincunx Venus

Yin-Yang Clash

It's not that you don't admire your lover. On the contrary, you recognize the qualities that draw you hither: beauty, kindness, a sweet-natured desire to connect deeply with others. But along with those good points come some bad ones, and that's what has you all riled up. You're annoyed, even contemptuous, over what you view as laziness. Your lover is a gentle dreamer, and you're a mover and a shaker. And that bugs you. Must you do everything yourself to get things done right? What's gonna light a fire under your sweetie's tail to get something moving?Sorry to let you in on this, but almost no one can measure up to your high standards. And although you don't realize it, your lover's relaxed nature is exactly what a striver like you really needs. You could be getting the nurturing and affection that provides the healing yin to your raging yang, if you could just relax enough to enjoy it. Cut your lover some slack. Even though their way of doing things may not be your way, that doesn't mean it's wrong. Focus on your lover's more admirable qualities rather than what's missing and you'll find you start appreciating what you've got.

Mercury quincunx Venus

Time Crunched

Friends don't seem so friendly for the pair of you -- it's likely you've had a lot of friction around the issue of pals. You'd like to spend evenings at home or spend your spare time in pursuits that broaden the mind; your lover, on the other hand, just seems to want to hang out. All the time. With just about anyone? With people, in fact, who's friendship you'd prefer not to spend one iota of free time cultivating. Both of you wish the other would bend, and what's worse is that neither of you can seem to communicate your feelings about such matters in a way the other understands. What you need is more time together, and luckily your sweet companion is more than willing to schedule special dates for you. Take up an activity together that you'll both enjoy -- perhaps something like a dance class, or a course in sensual massage for couples, anything that'll get you to slow down long enough to enjoy yourself as well as book a slot in your lover's busy schedule just for you. More harmony more of the time will help you both to sing in tune.

Jupiter quincunx Venus

Uncomfy Love

Everybody likes your lover. Your parents. Your friends. Your coworkers. Everything seems so right: You always have a great time whenever you're together. In fact, things go so smoothly between you that you've been able to ignore the gaps thus far. But you're waking up. The fact is that on the surface you're congenial and gracious, but underneath there are some serious disparities in your goals and values. You're more attuned to the intellectual side of things, politics and ideas and art, while your lover's the more sensual hedonist type. Think about it. Don't you make conversation more often than your lover, talking about humdrum matters to mask the realization that you don't have an awful lot in common?Developing common interests is key to the survival of your relationship. Take up a hobby together. Dance lessons? A foreign language? A sport? Whatever it is, make sure it's something that'll consume you both. With a little attention, you can get things moving in the right direction again. This is one love relationship that needs a little nudging to run smoothly.

Jupiter quincunx Pluto

Tricky Moves

Things aren't what they seem, particularly not in your tricky, difficult love relationship. On the surface it seems as if your sweetie has the upper hand. Your lover is stingy with affection and attention, leaving you begging for whatever meager amount you get. Meanwhile, you sit and stew over what you imagine your mate's up to when you're not around to watchdog. But if you could look into your lover's soul, you'd see a far different picture. In reality it's you who's in control, you who holds the reins, you who has your lover bewitched. It's just that your lover is better than you at playing it cool.The key to moving past this rough spot? Stop demanding what you feel is your due, and start treating your sweetie as you'd like to be treated yourself -- with kindness and generosity of spirit. Stop expecting attention and affection; start giving it instead. Given a boost of confidence, your mate will stop feeling as if control is slipping away, and will cease trying to get you in an emotional headlock. Your vicious circle will be transformed into a tender and sweet clinch. And isn't that what you really want in the end?

Sun quincunx Neptune

Slow and Sweet

Why, oh, why do you and your lover keep finding yourself in this place? You seem stuck on a dissatisfying treadmill. The pair of you pull apart, come together, drift away, circle back. Aren't you tired of repeating the same patterns? The chief problem you're having with your sweetie is that you can't seem to find common ground. And it's true, you don't have a lot in common -- you are driven while your lover is dreamy, you want to stride through the world making big changes, while your lover is more apt to dawdle and drift.But why should you expect any different when you're the architect of this awkwardness? You're attracted to your lover simply because of your differences, not in spite of them. Your amour forces you to slow down a little, to appreciate the subtle and magical rather than just the here and now. In your arrogance you want to force your sweetie to see things from your perspective, but that's shortsighted. Bend a little. Listen to someone else for a change. You may find you have a lot to learn about life, not to mention your lover.

Jupiter quincunx Mercury

Mismatched Beliefs

Mismatched beliefs lie at the core of your troubles, and things will get worse before they get better. It is likely that you have spent the last few years on some type of quest -- travel? Something spiritual? Advanced education? Your experiences have changed you, broadened your perspectives. And suddenly your lover doesn't seem to measure up. You feel like you can do better and that secret thought seems to add a negative energy to your pairing, playing a part in misunderstandings. Your lover, made nervous by these unconscious shifts, is apt to make big, startling decisions and say just the wrong thing to set you off. You must realize that though you've made big changes, your lover is still the same person you met and adored. Leave room in your personal growth curve for your sweetie. Don't expect your mate to keep up with the new you without some coaching. Instead, channel your natural generosity and slowly, gently, usher your mate into loving -- and living with -- the new you. Invite your lover into your life. This adjustment period will yield great rewards; don't give up just yet.

Jupiter quincunx Jupiter

A Sweet Mismatch

Why is it we hear the strains of 'Green Acres'? Something about the pair of you is as mismatched as that odd couple on the old television show. One of you is uptown, the other downtown, or it could be that you lack a certain commonality of thinking -- perhaps you don't share values? Whatever the problem is, it's causing a culture clash between you. One of you views the other as impractical and indulgent; one of you looks at the other as being conceited and megalomaniacal. Who's right? You both are, in a way. These qualities do exist in each of you, but in reality it's your reaction to them rather than the qualities themselves that's creating a disruption.The answer? Tolerance and gentleness. Consider your sweetie's finer qualities: a quick mind, generosity, a certain largeness of spirit, and enough personality to fill a room with sparkle and fire. Such a smashing person is a rare find indeed -- it would be silly to throw away all you have in a fit of pique. Try to be more accepting of your partner's failings, and don't play them up. If you can learn to treat your sweetie with kindness, you may start a new trend.

Mercury quincunx Neptune

Different but Equal

If your love were a dining table, it'd be one of those long mahogany jobbies you see in the movies about awkward rich people. You're at one end, your lover's at the other, and between you stretches a vast, unnavigable distance. You don't meld. Conversation lags. You don't understand each other, and sometimes it's difficult to see why you're bothering with each other to all. You'd walk -- if it weren't for the great, overwhelming attraction you feel for your partner. What a charmer! Dreamy and optimistic, compassionate and mysterious; to spend time with your lover is to be enthralled, not turned off by the chasm between you. So why bother agitating over the differences between you? Yes, yes, you lack commonality in many areas, but who said that one person had to be everything to their lover? Seek out simpatico pals for the activities your lover would rather skip. Don't demand your gentle sweetie keep up with you socially; instead, spend plenty of time alone, just experiencing your love as it comes instead of dissecting it with your fierce intellect.

Jupiter quincunx Neptune

An Addiction

You're usually the calm, cool, collected one who sidles through life confidently, while those around you are knocked over by your magnetism and power. But something about your current amour puts you at a disadvantage. You feel almost as if you're addicted to the affection you get, particularly since you're not getting quite enough of it. You always feel like your lover's holding out on you. You feel hungry, like you never get quite enough to eat. And worst of all, your lover seems to be enjoying the power imbalance between you, and making the most of the upper hand.The answer to your conundrum lies in your past. Who in your history had a manner similar to your lover? Who taught you to beg for crumbs and scrabble for love? Think carefully, because solving this riddle will put you on an easier path for the rest of your life. It's time to stop acting out old psychodramas from your past and lay your ghosts to rest. Once you manage to get past the whiny/begging pattern you're locked in, your lover's apt to find you a lot more attractive.

The Ties That Bind

No conjunctions

Enjoying Togetherness and Apartness

There's glue, and then there's glue. Elmer's versus epoxy, Velcro versus nails. Fortunately, with no difficult conjunctions between you, your relationship is bound by the easy-to-separate type of togetherness, not the wild-horses-couldn't-drag-us-apart variety. Now, don't misunderstand: This is not to say that there's not a strong connection between you. But it's nice, isn't it, to be able to take the occasional separate vacation; to enjoy your own interests without your partner feeling threatened; to be two distinct individuals who choose to hang out together. Compare this to the joined-at-the-hip, can't-bear-to-be-apart couple. Don't you always wonder about them? What do they think will happen if they're not together for an entire evening, much less a day or even a week?Separation is not a problem for you two; in fact, you may do it by choice on a regular basis. After all, absence makes the heart grow fonder, and this is surely true of you and your partner. You take great joy in sharing your individual experiences, as well as in spending time together. If anything, you might have to make it a point to schedule in time to be together! You may each be so wrapped up in your own orbit that you suddenly realize that days or even weeks have gone by without you two sharing a full day together.Don't let that happen. Use the previous sections of this report to discover the challenges of your relationship, which so often turn out to be opportunities for growth and development. You two have chosen to be together, and likewise, you can choose to grow together.

Next Steps

I hope you have enjoyed the valuable insight, wisdom and guidance of this astrology report. You might be a little curious about astrology and perhaps wondering how an astrologer can know so much about you!

Astrology is a mathematical system. It's all about applying meaning to numbers, or more specifically, finding meaning in the movements of the planets around the Sun, as viewed from our perspective here on earth. These planetary movements are easily captured and recorded with measurements, calculations, angles and so on.

That's why astrology works so well with computers, whose programs are also based on numbers and formulas. In 'the old days' -- thousands of years ago, when astrology was first recorded -- those early astrologers had to painstakingly observe the heavens and catalog their observations for the next generation of astrologers to build upon. Thank goodness for the computer age! Now we can simply use computers to make those calculations quickly and pull just the applicable pieces of information. Now, astrology is instant, based upon thousands of years of observations obtained through careful methodology.

Interpretations of planetary positions are based in part on ancient Greek and Roman mythology, but your astrological report is unique, describing you and you only. Even in the case of twin siblings, their birth charts differ from each other's in at least a few ways. And besides, no one amounts to just a simple interpretation of their birth chart; everyone's personality is complex. Your astrological report leaves plenty of room for variations based on your free will, personal growth and transformation over a lifetime.

Just like you, your astrological report is unique. It’s generated online in seconds and provides you with instant insight at your fingertips. Whether you have a pressing question about your future or you just want some guidance and direction, now you can have it all -- in a fast, focused, all-about-you format.

You can choose from several different types to find the report that's right for you and your needs. Your natal report is all about you -- your unique characteristics, strengths, weaknesses, potential and so on. Compatibility reports analyze the connections between two different people, to see how well and in what ways they get along. And a forecast is based on where the planets are today and how they're affecting you, uniquely. Be sure to try a free sample of another report to find out more about you!
