Challenging aspects between Venus (our emotional and security needs, the way we show our affection, self esteem) and Saturn (limits, restrictions, responsibility, obligations, the Lord of Karma) are often associated with so – called „karmic relationships.” However, people interested in self – developement paths tend to label any, too intense and difficult relationship „karmic”. They often think this is something they should work through. This is not always the case….
With more than 25 years of experience with Tarot and Astrology behind I’m quite familial with the question: „Will I start a new relationship soon?” Many people want nothing less than a perfect relationship, (see related article: Finding a Happy-Enough Relationship) but they are very surprised when I return the question: „Are you a perfect partner yourself?”
I don ‘t deny the existence of the soul-mates and twin flames. However, the current trends of spirituality overemphasize their importance. This, at a given moment becomes an obstacle in itself in establishing healthy relationships, as it sets Everest -sized expectations in all of us when we are looking for eligible partners.
