Love Notes: Week Jul 14-21, 2023

Brief love reading for each of the signs. Be sure to look at your Sun, Moon, and Rising signs for an expanded perspective. Read your July Astro-Tarotscope here.

Underlying Theme for All the Signs: The paradox of a situation in which you’re trying to gain an advantage is that relinquishing control actually empowers you. Your passion pushes you to overcome obstacles or stay the course despite the opinions of others. The problem is that the righteous push for perfection can become pushiness making you an aggressive presence rather than a positive influence. You’re encouraged to examine the compulsion to dominate the environment, and may discover that insecurities fueled by negative emotions of fear and vulnerability are driving your behavior. Have faith that you can make things happen on your own terms without trying to force others to appease you or adhere to your wishes. When you release what you’re so desperately holding on to and trust life, inspired solutions and a myriad of opportunities will present themselves.
