You’re enough just as you are.
If only love came with a guarantee, things would be so much easier; we’d know that it was okay to follow our hearts and we’d be vulnerable without fear.
However, there’s never any guarantee with love. You may love someone and they may love you in an entirely different way, or not at all.
Love not can change; in fact, it almost always does change. You may be passionately in love with your partner and then suddenly, one or both of you doesn’t feel it anymore, and then you’re left wondering if you should do the work to try and save the relationship or just let it go. You certainly don’t want to be in the position where you’re the only one who wants to work on it.

How do you keep someone forever in love with you? It’s impossible to know what magical forces it takes. You see people who’ve been together for a long time and you want to ask them how they do it. How do they keep their love fresh and alive?
Commitment isn’t for the weak or the foolish. You don’t want to be so blinded by love that you make stupid mistakes and you don’t want to sacrifice yourself in the process. You must be true to that other person and yourself.
It’s frustrating when you’ve worked on your relationship and you think it’s strong and healthy only to have it fall apart anyway. But you’d probably feel a lot worse if you hadn’t done anything and just watched as your relationship disintegrated before you.
Astrology can help you to see what talents and abilities you have to help keep someone in love with you so that you’ll never lose them. What is it that you have already that you don’t have to develop, which will help keep your relationship strong and able to withstand all the forces that will try to destroy it?
