This is an open edition STARCAST. Today's aspects seem to be about relationship dynamics, which are often a kind of substitute for considering your inner dynamics. It's not about them, it's about you.
Yeah, "leash pride" can create dynamics within relationships that may become a shield against, and an excuse for self avoidance. I love this explanation Eric because it is such a common thing and your angle highlights the momentum so well here. It can actually be expected in traditional marriages, especially when it comes to "keeping score" stuff. Frankly, it can be a big part of how couples just can't connect or enjoy their partnerships.
I'm really big on the ongoing adventure of self understanding. Not always a popular or understood concept, but a very powerful one when woven with love and curiosity.
