We have started calming down lately since we've finally started getting to know and become more accepting each other's quirks. Our fights as a couple can be a little tricky with him withdrawing and me advancing--those moon signs! I'm water where he is fire, and he is fire where I am water. So, I'm wondering what this means for the long haul? A fiery crab (birth data supplied)
A: Your birth chart has unpredictable Uranus in your 7th House of Relationships, showing that in love, you like excitement, change and freedom. His Uranus sits right on your relationship point, the descendant, showing that together there are always fireworks. Adding fuel to the fire is a passionate link between Uranus (yours) and Mars (his), indicating that change is part of how you two keep the spark alive. In many ways, this tempestuous kind of love is part of the natural fabric of your relationship with him.
Uranus brings spontaneity so be flexible to make the most of its influence; that way, things are always exciting, rather than aggravating. Your boyfriend also has the Sun and Uranus conjunct, showing he's an unusual character that likes to march to his own beat.
Your boyfriend has a Venus/Jupiter conjunction in traditional Capricorn, and he can be quite generous with his love and time. However, he does need some routine and commitment in relationships. This will be especially true in September and October when Saturn transits his Venus and he gets a reality check around romance.
Your Venus falls in Leo, showing that you do like a fair amount of attention from your partners. Sometimes, your boyfriend may this a bit high maintenance. With his sensitive Pisces Moon, he'll love it when you intuitively reach out to him.
Since you both have communication planet Mercury in a fire sign, talking things through is key; and helps you stay connected.
It's always important to give a partner space to be themselves, but it's especially so in your relationship. You have intense Pluto opposing your Sun as you head into 2012 and the biggest love theme for you then will be managing power in partnerships. Love has the power to transform you now.
