Q: I am a Libra who dated a Cancer for 2.5yrs. We broke up in February as he had doubts about our future. I’m feeling sad about the break up - will it get better? (Birth data supplied)
A: Your sadness is totally understandable. You dated, loved and shared life with someone for two and a half years and now they are gone. It will take time to adjust to the absence of their presence in your life. Be gentle with yourself as you start to re-experience life without them. But you will discover hope and find new happiness. New joys will come your way that won’t be full of the memory of your ex and each new experience will help you come back to yourself.
Astrologically speaking, there are two planets in your chart that influence love, Mercury and Venus. You have Mercury in Libra and Venus in Sagittarius. Togetherness and a partner to discuss things with is important (Mercury in Libra), but you also like freedom and have an adventurous and open minded side (Venus in Sagittarius). Truth, integrity and honesty would also be important.
In your chart Mercury and Venus form a harmonious sextile, which indicates a desire for togetherness, a sweet and considerate disposition and artistic or creative talent (especially good for writing!).
Mercury and Venus form this sextile at 13 degrees of their respective signs. In 2014, unpredictable Uranus aspects both Mercury and Venus, as it moves through 13 Aries in April, October/November and finally in January/February 2015. Without realising it you have bought a ticket to ride on the cosmic love rollercoaster.

As Uranus opposes Mercury and trines Venus your love life will be exciting but somewhat unconventional. Uranus cycles can make love fast paced and surprising, but this time will also ask that you break the rules.
Use this Uranus/Mercury/Venus combination to explore what love really means to you – and how you may sometimes find the traditional view of a relationship somewhat restrictive. Commitment may elude you during this cycle as Uranus prefers to experiment and try new things, rather than settle down or plan for the future.
This break up may be a blessing in disguise, painful though it may be. The year ahead promises to bring new discoveries and new joy your way. Love comes in many shapes and sizes and you now have the chance to reset any dated dating expectations that have limited your potential to love with true authenticity.
You are an incredibly generous woman, having the Moon and Jupiter in Cancer. The right person will be blessed to love you as you have access to almost bottomless emotional abundance and potent nurturing gifts.
Use this independent Uranus cycle to rediscover you own identity. It’ll serve you well in future relationships.
