The level of independence determines the success of the relationship. You need a healthy amount of distance and plenty of opportunity to develop your own self-expression away from the confines of the relationship. Be honest, even if you want to get more closeness, deep down you know that the relationship is becoming too restrictive and your wings and that of your partner are being clipped. Greater distance actually increases the appreciation of, and desire for greater closeness. Don't aim to spend all your free time together, cultivate your friendships outside the relationship and encourage your partner to do the same.
This month, with Jupiter retrograde in your 5th house, it's time to review your expectations about your current relationship or about what relationships should be. We all have our preconceived ideas about how relationships should unfold and how our partner should behave in various circumstances, these expectations are not necessarily bad and shouldn't be lowered. If you have high expectations, that means you value yourself and are discerning and that's a good thing. The problem is that often your expectations clash with your partner's personality, and that's when you have to make that tough decision about which expectations are unrealistic, and need some tempering, and which are red lines. Some expectations are helpful and self-protective, but some are prohibitive.
In new relationships, you guys will have to learn about each other's sexual expectations as these have a very practical impact, if he wants it every day and you don't, that's a hurdle which can become significant. If fact, it's quite important early on in a relationship to discern what each other’s expectations are sexually, as these are biological and impulsive or maybe compulsive, so it's not as if you can necessarily work through these. If he is a sex addict and you prefer it once a week, then this relationship may not be workable. Sex is such a sensitive topic, since getting turned down can leave one really bummed out, so it's really important at the outset to let each other know what you enjoy in terms of frequently or methodology in terms of sex, that way, neither of you will feel it's personal when you get turned down, you'll understand that the other person just doesn't need it that often, for example.
August is all about indulging inner needs, of letting your imagination wander or being free to think about things that are not related to work and the humdrum. In a way, you are connecting with parts of you that have been lost because you are so used to playing the role of mom, son, good employee, responsible neighbor, etc. Amateur dramatics or some form of theatre can be very helpful as you can escape yourself by playing a character. You may go to places where no one knows you just so you can be who you want to be even if only for a few hours. It is vital to reconnect with what you really think and feel – time to weed away the thoughts and opinions of others which may be strangling the growth of your own perspectives. Cast aside dogma you have been force fed and allow your intuition to guide you to what has meaning and relevance to you.
Visualization is vital to health this month. Do you know that visualization can activate the very same neural networks which are used if you actually do an action physically, and this can strengthen the connection between brain and body? So the more you imagine that perfect golf swing, that ace tennis serve or perhaps just getting greater flexibility from a painful knee, the more you can create pathways neurologically to actually facilitate these movements physically. The key is however that you have to do it frequently and daily for many weeks – yup that is the hard part. So you can think yourself fitter and stronger, but you need to make that thinking a twice-daily routine at least and keep it up.
