Dear True Cancer:
Thank you for your very candid
letter. Allow me to premise my answer by telling you, astrology does not make, create or break a harmonious relationship,
people do. The way that astrology can aid you in your quest is to provide some insights of your basic needs or astrological
make-up and compare these needs with those of your partner. In this way you may be able to determine the PROBABILITY for suitable
companionship. Let me reiterate, the final choice is yours.
Born under the sign of Cancer you are extremely, emotional,
sensitive, nurturing and protective of your home and family. Add to that the Moon in Cancer and it intensifies the need for
emotional security. The symbol for Cancer is the crab. If you study a crab you will see it naturally runs free until it senses
danger. It then stops and pulls in its tentacles, in an act of self-protection.
Pluto in Libra then colors your emotions
adding much more depth to your feelings. You yearn for that deep, intimate all encompassing kind of love, and that Ms. Cancer
is a really tall order. You sense that should you open up and give your all to this relationship that there will be no turning
back. Uncertain of what you might find you choose to play it safe and hold back emotionally. Ask yourself, are you really
being true to yourself or can you ever be truly happy and fulfilled living on the perimeter of love?
The man in the
question has a Gemini Sun and a Moon in Virgo. He tends to be more intellectual and analytical in his approach with a basic
need to be direct, exact and insightful. A Mars/Uranus connection adds a strong passion, excitement and intensity for living.
Life with this man would never be boring.
Where you guys fit together nicely is in the area of communication. With
both of you having Mercury placements in Cancer, you tend to relate on a more personal level or from the feeling center. You
stated in your letter "neither of us really communicates how we feel about one another". I think that is because with this
kind of connection, words are not really necessary; as you are so very capable of communicating through feel, touch and emotions.
it comes down to is how you "feel" when you are together. Forget about the difference in age, because the heart does not see
age as a deterrent. Then, you must decide if you can trust him with your feelings. From what you have revealed, you are currently
very happy in this relationship and he is very supportive and does fulfill your emotional, mental and physical needs.
positive Neptune/Venus aspect in your chart this year brings out the potential for true love. This will also help soften or
blur the edges on the boundaries that you have set around your heart and heighten your desire for romance and creative self-expression.
a partner treats you is an important clue as to how they really feel about you. From the way you have described him, it is
apparent that he likes you a lot. Trust your feelings and they will reveal to you when the time is right and if it is safe
to come out of your shell and take your relationship with this gentleman to the next level. Good luck!
