“People who are not ‘faithful’ do not necessarily desert one person for another, but are often simply driven home to themselves…It need not be a gesture of abandonment for them to set free the person to whom they have clung; more likely it is a gesture of reverence: returning him to the world.”
Lou Andreas-Salome (born 12 Feb 1861) was a free-thinking woman & unconventional love-life leader way before it was fashionable. She supported herself as a writer, when few women did & was an intimate of Freud, Nietsche et al. She was multiple conjunct Aquarius (Sun, Venus, Juno and Chiron all in that sign) with Uranus conjunct Ceres in Gemini trining the Aquarius AND Moon-Neptune in Pisces.
Venus in Aquarius alone is free-willed enough, the Uranus is a nice touch & Moon-Neptune suffuses the whole thing with spiritual yearning and the desire to place any of one’s bents – no matter what – in a higher context.
