Saturn, the planet of tests, works a special kind of magic when it forms a trine to the sun (March 13). By blocking all your exits, Saturn forces you to get real in your relationship. Sometimes it's only by being locked in the same room together where you have no choice but to work out your differences that you come to appreciate the bond that you have.

Sometimes the disappointment is crushing and sometimes it's liberating because it allows you to be human. In your case, it will be like the training wheels have been taken off your bicycle. You can either stand there paralyzed by fear (what if you fall off?) or you can hop aboard and take that relationship to the next level. It's up to you.
