For February 2013

The planets seem aligned to reveal just how much someone in your life means to you, despite any challenges that may exist in the relationship. The situation looks like the perfect setup for healing, though if you miss that particular point (for example, by getting caught in any drama, or by misinterpreting someone's desire for you as a form of aggression), you may find yourself in an unnecessarily complex situation. It will be helpful if you use your intuition and anticipate someone's needs in advance—or use your experience with them and remember where they are coming from. It's not up to you to fix anyone, but it will serve both your purposes and theirs if you hold open the space for their emotional process. This may feel like you're going against the grain of your personality, though that's exactly what you need to do for the benefit of making space for your own emotional process. By offering your empathy to someone you care about, you're learning to offer your empathy to yourself. This really is a case of you cannot give what you do not have. In this situation, trust will be one of the most meaningful forms of empathy, including allowing the space for someone to change their mind a few times without deciding that they are trying to deceive you in some way. I don't think that's true; there are deep, potentially ambiguous feelings involved, though this does not dampen your love in any way.
