Love Notes: Week Sept 8-15, 2023

Brief love reading for each of the signs. Be sure to look at your Sun, Moon, and Rising signs for an expanded perspective.

Underlying Theme for All the Signs: Perhaps you’d like to make the final call in matters or call the shots but the compulsion to control could indicate being called into a deeper relationship with yourself. Aggression or domineering behavior is not a form of empowerment; instead, it’s a signal that you feel unsafe or vulnerable. The push for perfection can be a ploy to hide your insecurities surrounding the fear of failure or making mistakes. However, the need is to trust in life, to trust that you’re enough, and to allow others to be themselves without having to appease or adhere to your every wish. Once you relinquish the constant need to govern outcomes a multitude of opportunities will arrive beyond your expectations.
