Wednesday, February 14, 2018 – Keeping conversations lighthearted sounds like a good idea, but you’re likely to sink into deep waters pretty quickly today. Casual banter can transform into an emotional power struggle when innocent Venus crosses swords with domineering Pluto. Nevertheless, staying fully involved in a discussion, even after you want to run, is the smartest thing you can do. Don’t be surprised when the intensity passes and the calm after the storm feels like new territory. Vulnerability is a strength, not a liability.
Words that you mean to be pleasant salutations might be taken as personal attacks. Choose your communication with a partner carefully. Can you avoid mixed messages?
