We all want to master the complicated art of relationships, but the eternal question that plagues us is: How? This week, the stars will give us a clue!

It may be surprising for women to learn that they have an "inner masculine." Guys tend to be attached to the idea of themselves as manly creatures whose first job is to conquer. But they too have an "inner feminine." When these two forces are integrated, psychologists call it the "inner marriage" -- a union that will help you to negotiate your connection with your partner.

On Monday, July 28, the stars provide us with a grand opportunity to understand the dynamics between these two forces in our psyche, no matter what our gender or sexual orientation. Our culture tends to not support this important inner work. But the current astrology allows us to get deeper in touch with the process and make significant progress.

Pluto is the planet of transformation; once it makes its mark on your life, you can't go back again. It forces you to engage with your karma. And sometimes it hurts -- but it's for your highest growth. It's been in the cardinal sign of Capricorn since 2008, asking us to confront our ambition and strength, two qualities typically assigned to men's role in our culture. Women aren't usually encouraged to push to the top, to force the issue, to win. They're told to be sweet, receptive, good little girls.

On the other side of this equation, we have Venus, the planet of love, beauty and grace -- all the qualities we tell women they must possess in order to be lovable. Venus is currently in Cancer, the sign of mothering and nurturing. Are you a woman who is constantly giving too much and getting too little? Are you a man whose need to be needed -- to fix what's broken -- dominates your relational role?

If you see the conflict building in your psyche and your relationships, this is the moment to investigate. Pluto in Capricorn is asking you to engage with your inner masculine while Venus asks you to examine your inner feminine. Don't be afraid to confront these powerful forces, even if it feels taboo.

In fact, you might even want to consider a little healthy roleplaying with your partner this week. Even if you're single, these forces are playing out in your psyche -- so dive deep and know that you can approach your next relationship more healthy and whole than you were in your last.
