Looking for love in far away places makes sense with the Sun in your 9th House of Travel until July 22. This can also represent attraction to people from other cultures or getting romantic stimulation from foreign food, movies, art and music. But the deeper meaning of this transit is to open your mind (and heart) to seeking new and different forms of comfort in relationships.
Sometimes we're stuck with a set of expectations that aren't fulfilling and need to reframe our pictures of a happy partnership. That's certainly a potential gift of the Cancer New Moon in this part of your chart on July 8. This dynamic event, though, may start on a less than ideal note as surprises and mistrust erode confidence in your current alliance. There are, as you know, times when going through a crisis is the most reliable way to head in a more desirable direction ... this could be one of them.
Fortunately, communicative Mercury backs into a conjunction with the Sun on the following day, which is great for a heart to heart conversation. Deep emotional issues can be discussed from a fresh perspective that will help to heal old wounds. Insight into your own motivations and expectations about relationships can untangle knots and inspire understanding that sets you free from existing hang-ups.
A pivotal period regarding partnerships is around July 27 when your two passionate ruling planets, Mars and Pluto, oppose one another. While this could be an intense showdown, it's also a time to cut through emotional clutter and empower yourself with newfound desire.
