Timing is (almost) everything in relationships. If you want to hash out an issue or broach a touchy subject, knowing how receptive your partner is (at that moment) can make all the difference. Sometimes it’s difficult to know where your lover is at, and that’s when astrology can help. Certain transits and progressions will encourage a person to shut down, or be less interested in commitment. And transits and progressions are temporary. Of course, you always have to start with the natal chart — some people will never be ready to commit. But sometimes, it’s simply a matter of waiting out an influence.
The Progressed Moon in Aries: Me First
The Progressed Moon represents a person’s evolving needs. When it changes signs, there can be an obvious shift in what your partner is able to give, or what they want from you.
When the Progressed Moon moves from Pisces into Aries, the shift can be dramatic. When their Moon is in Pisces, your partner may be more willing to accept whatever you need (Pisces does not have strong boundaries). But once their Moon moves into assertive Aries, they may lose patience and become focused on what they need. They’ll need to be first, and they’ll need freedom. This will be especially noticeable if your partner has emphasized Aries or Mars in their chart. The Progressed Moon in Aries is associated with the urge to start something new, and if a person is feeling restricted in their relationship, they can abruptly leave. Note that this is only likely if they have doubts about the relationship to begin with. The Progressed Moon spends two to three years in each sign.
This is not the best time to: give ultimatums (unless you want to push your partner out the door).
