It's more wrapped up in his self-worth issues like income, job status and does he even like what he does for a living. This is a time when you need to be more friend than lover.

In any case, the discordant energies of the recent sun/Saturn square have run their course and what's left is a shimmering rainbow promising peace and sanity for the foreseeable future. Take it while you can get it.
