Unhappy woman thinking about relationship

Cold as ice

The stars pretty much tell it like it is when Venus, the planet of love, is opposite Saturn, the planet of Mr. Spock. You can rant and rave and carry on all you'd like about the feelings he felt and the passion he once expressed and he's still going to look at you like you're from another planet. There's no rekindling that spark no matter what. The logical thing to do would be to move on and find a more suitable partner. You don't want to wait outside a closed door with nobody on the other side of it.


ARIES (March 20-April 18)

You've never been one to date up. As an Aries, you're used to paying your own way and opening doors for yourself. It's going to take some time to get used to seeing someone who makes more money, doesn't think twice about picking up the check and is comfortable taking the lead in the relationship. But don't let this turn into a power struggle. This is supposed to be the part of the courtship where you get to sit back and enjoy yourself.


TAURUS (April 19-May 19)

If he's not calling back, then he's not interested in you. Period. So you can stop texting “sup?” and talking your friends' ears off about how he must be busy with this or that. How can an astrologer say such things with finality? Because Venus, the planet of love, will be opposite Saturn, the planet of nyet, all week. It's like the stars drained the water in your bubble bath. You're better off hopping out of the tub, toweling yourself dry and moving on.


GEMINI (May 20-June 19)

There's a lot of heavy planet energy going on this week so nobody's feeling perky. If anything, it's the perfect time to get together with girlfriends and treat yourselves to a blowout bitchfest. You'll feel a lot better. And don't worry too much about hurting the guys' feelings or betraying their trust. You know that while you and your friends are cataloguing boyfriends' faults with the exacting scrutiny of a CSI examiner, they're sitting at home in their boxers eating pizza and watching the game.


CANCER (June 20-July 21)

The lunar eclipse on Thursday will bring to the surface all of those feelings you've been trying to hide. It can't be helped but it's good for you. As a water sign, you're accustomed to caring for the emotional life of your relationship. You're always there with an encouraging word, a sympathetic shoulder and a loving embrace. But does your partner reciprocate in kind? And more to the point — have you given him the chance? Show off your needy side on the 25th. You won't be disappointed.


LEO (July 22-Aug. 21)

Your spouse is not your parent. He's your partner. Usually you're pretty clear on this, but money woes have put you in debt and now he has the thankless task of parceling out your allowance. Nothing renders your sex life dead in bed more than being in the red. Turn this around by working with him rather than getting defensive, depressed or acting out. At the end of the day, you're in it together and he's doing the best job he can to help.


VIRGO (Aug. 22-Sept. 21)

You can't help role-playing in a relationship. There's a personal secretary, ball-busting bitch, silent martyr, gung-ho cheerleader, etc. But it's clear that the repertoire's grown stale and you want something new. But it's more complicated than changing your hair color. Your lover or spouse bought into your personal advertising campaign and he may like what he sees. Don't defeat your purpose by announcing that you're not going to play anymore. He'll have no idea what you're talking about. Just introduce the authentic you over time and he'll gradually catch on.


LIBRA (Sept. 22-Oct. 21)

It's hard working out the balance between the me and the you. The lunar eclipse on the 25th will show that the power of the relationship still comes down pretty heavily on his side and that you feel like your legs are dangling in the air. But maybe you're measuring this all wrong. Instead of trying to match him paycheck for paycheck, you might want to assign more value to what you bring to the table. Your friendship, support, wit and wise counsel are invaluable and irreplaceable.


SCORPIO (Oct. 22-Nov. 20)

You can only push him away so many times before he stops coming back. Since it looks like you're going through another “I need time to myself” phase, you might want to do some real deep thinking on the 24th and 26th. What are you afraid of? People who play games with the heart either don't have one or they're afraid of heartbreak. It's clear that you have a heart, so don't let the push/pull thing turn into a self-fulfilling prophecy when it doesn't have to.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20)

Sometimes we tell ourselves things without going to the person who has all the answers. It's a psychological defense mechanism — who really wants to hear someone reject you to your face? — and sometimes it can be counterproductive. Tuesday would be the perfect day to put out feelers to see what's up with that guy you're seeing. You may find that he's copasetic with what's going on and that you're the one looking for the exit. You don't have to. You could always sit down and make yourself comfortable.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 18)

What is your vision for a relationship? People often focus on their potential partner's talking points — like looks, income and status — without really examining things on a deeper level. You have to have more going on than hot sex and fun times. Anyone can get that on a date. Take this week to reflect on what a relationship means to you and the future you want to build together. Pairing the why with the who is so much more important than his six figure salary or six pack abs.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 19-Feb. 17)

Aquarians have a reputation for being flighty in love but not now. You want to plant roots and settle down. This is good news if you're dating an Aquarian man because he's ready to close on the deal. If you're an Aquarian woman, then be upfront about future plans. If the guy you're seeing hesitates, then dump him. He's easily replaceable. If the guy doesn't blanch when you mention the word “commitment,” then he's a keeper. That said, he's still got six weeks to put a ring on it.


PISCES (Feb. 18-March 19)

Love affairs are like potato chips. It's hard to eat just one. There's nothing wrong with that as long as you're honest. You shouldn't make yourself feel guilty about having a hearty appetite. There's often a double standard when it comes to these sorts of things and it's just plain wrong. Be who you are and enjoy life to the hilt. You'll know when the time is right to tell the guy that he's your one and only. You won't have to sell yourself on it.
