Excerpt from my latest Sasstrology post. Please leave comments on the Sasstrology site:
"A while back, I wrote an article on the challenge of synastric inconjuncts — tense aspects that demand adjustment between signs with nothing in common. While an inconjunct between you and your partner can be tough, sometimes these aspects can hit you from the outside. If a transiting planet inconjuncts a natal relationship planet, this passing spot of tension can trigger a difficult choice that often catches you off guard. Although it’s temporary, it can pinpoint an area of significant tension in your love life."
