You'll want to dive down the rabbit hole after him, but don't. Leave him alone and give him his space. It's hard to believe, but his sudden withdrawal doesn't have anything to do with you personally. 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. Mars comes out of retrograde on May 19.

Are you and your lover on the same page? Given the disruptive energies of the Jupiter/Uranus square on Feb. 25, the real question might be are you reading from the same book or are you even in the same library? Bridging the gap just won't work now. The energies between you are too discordant. But discordant doesn't have to make you adversaries. In fact, many of the conflicts stem from trying to force a truce when you're better off giving each other space. Touch base after March 6. Things will be more harmonious then.
