Love Horoscope For Tuesday, February 16, 2021

For today's love horoscope by zodiac sign, resident astrologer, and YourTango's Senior Editor, Aria Gmitter shares how current astrological events affect you on Tuesday, February 16, 2021.

We all have a breaking point, and we are reaching a limit each day.

We are just one day from the first of a three-part Saturn/Uranus squares where we feel the burden of our responsibilities to others and a desire to abandon ship and be free.

The truth is that we need both of these tension points in our love life.

We need Saturn as it reminds us that love is enough but not sufficient to pay bills and do the things that must be done each day.

We need Uranus telling us to break free too, because it's healthy to have personal space and to maintain a semblance of autonomy, no matter how tightly woven our love bonds are.

Awareness of both will continue to grow as Saturn in Aquarius squares with Uranus in Taurus throughout this year.

The goal is to find a balance where you can have the benefit of both in a harmonious way while in a relationship with another.
