Don’t be in denial.
It’s all too easy to blame the world for your woes. To say that the reason your love life sucks is because all the good ones are taken. That your parents messed you up and gave you all this baggage. That your relationship would have been so much better if only your partner would shape up and make an effort as much as you are.
But in the end, it’s all just an elaborate ploy to shirk off your own responsibility in the situation. And that’s what we are going to discuss in your zodiac sign’s weekly horoscopes and tarot card reading for October 15 to 21, 2018: the one thing you are still in denial of in your love life, which is blocking you from living the romance of your dreams.
Ready to find out? Let’s go.
ARIES: 2 of Pentacles
Aries, you are lying to yourself if you think your career is the number one priority in your life. The truth is, your relationship with your partner is just as important to you. That’s why it’s hurting you to no end to see it unravel because of your work pressure.
So what are you going to do? Kill one half of yourself because that’s what society expects you to do? Or are you going to find a way to balance both these extremely important aspects of your life because you won’t be happy if you don’t?
TAURUS: Prince of Swords
Taurus, you might think you are sticking to your principles by refusing to change, but the painful truth is, you are just a rebel without a cause who is afraid that her way of life doesn’t make sense anymore. Sounds a lot like dogma? It is.
GEMINI: The Lovers
Love is a happy game of compromises, Gemini. And the fun lies in being open to the new experiences your partner brings to the table. After all, you are bringing new stuff for them to try too! Does this mix and merge include some growing pains? Absolutely. But that’s how relationships roll.
So if you have been stuck in an unrealistic vision of what a romance should look like (courtesy of Hollywood rom-coms), let this message be the wake-up call that prevents you from giving up on the best thing that ever happened to your life. Okay?
CANCER: The Moon
Knowing that you are emotional is one thing, Cancer. But not doing anything about the problems it brings along with it is another.So don’t let your emotional nature be an excuse for complacency.
Acknowledging the problem is just step one. Step two is doing whatever it takes to improve the situation so it doesn’t continue to destroy your life.
LEO: The Devil
You will find yourself in the grip of a fantasy this week, Leo. It will be painted in technicolor and will bring with it the scent of extraordinary possibilities. Unfortunately, all fantasies are not good ideas.
So before you commit to anything in your love life this week, make sure you have double-checked the fine print. It always pays to make informed decisions by looking through all the pros and the cons before.
