Power, when it comes to love, is a running theme for you this month. Not in an idealistic, "love conquers all" kind of way, but in an "I want to have the upper hand in this relationship out of self-protection" way. That could be a dangerous mindset for you, but it's one you'll surely grapple with on some level.
Get rid of what’s standing between you and real intimacy now with a personalized Intimacy Profile.
There might be a longing for intimacy fighting with the urge to maintain control at any price. The truth is, you can't have it both ways in matters of the heart. To love someone completely you must be willing to surrender and reveal your innermost self. You must be willing to trust -- to put yourself out there and risk the hurt, betrayal and pain that can come from opening yourself up. From truly getting naked on that soul level.
Are you up for this? On May 14, you might experience a most difficult time when your lover forces you to answer that very question. The urge to wield power over your sweetheart may be extra dominant during this time. If you're spending so much time barricading your heart with an impenetrable suit of armor, you'll lose the opportunity to experience a transformative love experience. Luckily, you might have a sudden change of heart on May 15. You might realize that maintaining your suit of armor is even more painful than letting love in. After May 19, you'll even gain a boost in courage and confidence. Love can do that you know. It makes you strong.
