Although you normally treat love as a great adventure, you're less likely this year to grab your partner's hand and head off for a distant horizon. Your intimate partners bring you the opportunity to open your heart and mind in love, especially when sensual Venus visits your 7th House of Others from May 9 through June 2, followed by Mars on May 31 through June 13. In fact, you may have fantasies about traveling with the love of your life, but by the time your ruling planet Jupiter shifts into sensitive Cancer and your 8th House of Deep Sharing on June 25, you're ready to sink into your emotions instead of escaping from them.
You receive additional assistance in dropping further into your feelings on July 17-22, when energetic Mars, confident Jupiter, steady Saturn and elusive Neptune form a rare Grand Water Trine that entices you away from practical land and into the sea. But not all diving is fun and games; the currents grow strong and the going gets tough on August 7 and August 21, when over-indulgent Jupiter crosses paths with the transformative Uranus-Pluto square. It's easier for you to wait and see what everyone else wants before you make your needs public. Nevertheless, swashbuckling Mars encourages you to wave your sword while stating your case from December 25-30.
