Generally I try and keep any missives to letting you know you’re awesome and saying thank you and stuff.
But, seriously, what is up with this Venus Retrograde caper? Thank you so much for covering this action in your scopes, as it has been invaluable in keeping me sane and hopeful thus far.
I was minding my own business, then one day when Venus went stationary, walked onto the hospital ward at work and fell head over heels in infatuation with another doctor. He’s short, burly and looks like a Leo. Not my type, probably too young and a neurosurgeon who i actually do have to work with.
Who, I might add, I don’t know and have barely managed much of a conversation with. I’m convinced that there’s some karmic connection, and have a ridiculous visceral reaction every time our paths cross, up to and including heart palpitations. I’m aware that I may be insane. I mean, I’m 33, have two children and am an Aquarian for fuqs sake. This is so not me, and has never happened to me before.
I’m also aware that the above noted life situation may not be a prime selling point for moi as hot property, nor the fact that my Toro ex (who left me with no notice after 10 years and literally stole the couch on his way out) is back living in my spare room due to his general derelectitude and poverty and the fact I’m a kind hearted idiot. And he probably thinks he’s my boyfriend on that basis. In fact, he may have even told hot burly maybe-Leo neurosurgeon that he’s my boyfriend as their paths crossed in a professional sense last week. Holy crap, what if he said we’re married? (We’re not). Now I’m paranoid. You see? I’m insane, clearly.
I’m sure that hot burly maybe-Leo dude is having the same visceral reaction to me as I am. Which is making interaction quite awkward as we’re both too busy having runs of ventricular tachycardia or something, and pretending we’re cool.
Its made me reappraise everything. I was managing to compartmentalise my Toro-ex living arrangements up to now on the whole “good for the children, I work long hours” basis, but all of a sudden I want to stab him with a fork for being a miserable, borderline-alcoholic, cock-blocking robot sent to destroy my love life.
Pluto is almost exact conjunct Venus in my 6th house, making that Grand Trine thingy with natal Chiron in the tenth, and Saturn and the North Node in the second.
I really hope I’m not insane and just making all this up in my head. I can’t quite work out whats worse:
a) Me hitting on someone at work, therefore running the risk of being branded a cougar and an occupational health and safety risk plus or minus being rejected.
b) Succumbing to an urge to stalk that borders on the creepy.
c) Nothing ever coming of this, thus proving that I must have just made it all up in my head.
My Aquarian brain can’t cope. Nor can my Libra moon, as I now spend 10 minutes every morning agonizing over whether I should go with the ylang ylang or monoi body lotion and triaging its seductive / mystical qualities.
Stay awesome and love your work.
My Dear Dr Aqua,
Some thoughts – don’t a whole heap of people meet via work? It’s brilliant as you can get to know one another gradually and without the awkwardness of a ‘date’ situation. Pluto on Venus = once in a lifetime karmic romance type vibe so it’s either burly Leo neurosurgeon or he is just the “fluffer” as they say in adult film shoots, to help get you in the Venus-Pluto frame of reference. OR to open your heart, if you would appreciate some more New Age terminology.
More thoughts: Obviously you don’t hit on him at work nor stalk him, just get to know him. I already said in the Horoscopes that anything started April to August is ultra-promising but will take ages to play out, right? Kick the Taurus Ex out already! I think Monoi would be too cloying for an emergency room/hospital environment, don’t you? Oh and can’t you just say to burly maybe-Leo neurosurgeon that you hear he met fuqwit Taurus Ex who stole your couch and that you’re so happy you’re on good terms with him?
My esteemed viewers here will of course have some fabulously useful comments on this scenario, i know it.
