You're both feeling a bit pessimistic now, as if a dark cloud is hanging over your thoughts, making everything look just a little dingier than it really is. This energy will last nearly a year, which may make things tough between you. When you're both feeling a bit gloom-and-doom, who's the cheerleader?
Neither one of you is in the mood to remind the other that things aren't as bad as you're making them out to be, and so you're stuck in that viewpoint, at least for the time being. When you're talking with each other, what would normally be an open, even fun conversation will now feel stilted, as if you're both thinking things that you're afraid to voice. So why can't you just open up with each other, and talk about your fears or your suspicions? Well, it's not that easy right now. Misunderstandings abound between you, and it may even feel impossible at times to explain yourselves. You'll just have to do the best you can until clarity and openness return. When you face contract negotiations or anything like that together during this period, get a third party's opinion before signing anything, because the two of you together aren't seeing things clearly.
