I’ve been with my boyfriend for a little over a year and things aren’t as hot and heavy or passionate as they used to be. I think he’s losing interest. He sometimes tells me things that hurt and I know that Sagittarius’ have diarrhea of the mouth, unintentionally hurting delicate feelings but I wanna know if this is one sign that he’s losing interest. I’m in love with him and I want him to be a part of my future. Please help me to figure out my suspicions. His Venus is in Scorpio and his Mars is in Pisces. Thank You.
Transiting Saturn — planet of harship and woe — has been conjunct your Leo Sun all year. You’re feeling pretty down, I imagine, as this planet squashes your vitality and wounds your pride. You want to shine and be seen as special, yet the spotlight has been unplugged.
It’s hard to feel loved during a Saturn transit to your Sun. Self-esteem can plummet. To boot, transiting Saturn will come up on a square to your natal Mars, ruler of your Seventh House of Partnership, in August. Tension and repressed desire are likely outcomes. However, Saturn is the planet of tests. You can use this summer to assess how you express your purpose and initiative, and you can take an inventory of your relationship. Your Mars sits in your Second House of Self-Worth, so looking at how your Sagittarius boyfriend makes you (or doesn’t make you) feel valued would be a good use of your energies. (And don’t forget to value yourself, regardless!)
Sometimes people say hurtful things to push others away. Other times, they just lack tact. With Mars in Pisces, your boyfriend wouldn’t necessarily be direct with his expression of anger. You may want to just sit down with him and ask if he’s been holding anything back (Venus in Scorpio). Perhaps he’s just scared of taking the next step, and has been unleashing barbs to see if you’ll still stick around.
You have good compatibility given the limited info you’ve provided: two fiery Suns, plus two Venus-Mars interaspects (conjunction in Scorpio, opposition along Pisces-Virgo axis). Around September 2008, transiting Saturn will be conjoining your Venus, planet of love, in self-critical Virgo — another round of tests concerning how loved and valued (Venus) you feel. If your relationship survives this transit, it will probably last.
