Dear Mystic and Co,
HELP! I am thinking there is something wrong with me. For a start, i am Libra. Lots of Libra. Very Libra. I’m all about peonies, kittens, windchimes, debating politics, design, fragrance, fashion and vintage movies with beautiful people. I fit every Libra cliche going except for one. Librans are supposed to crave partnership and be scared to be alone. Well, i am currently single and very happy with my lot. It has been this way for 18 months now. It would be nice if i fell in love again one day but i am not looking. I am busy making my life epic, with my work, my child, friends and a whole range of interests. People – not my close friends – ask me constantly if i am getting any action/met anyone special and seem disapproving or pitying when i say no. The last person was today and he said “you’re really attractive, you know, you need to put more effort into this or you might end up alone.” This statement is haunting me, am i a slacker? But i swear to god, i am happy and fulfilled. This is probably tmi but i had a very sexually active 20s and then i was in a very long relationship which peetered out, then i had a bit of an apres marriage jaunt with a few guys and now i am just pleasantly jaded with men and dating. No drama. No needing. No loneliness. Is this something that is okay or should i, as everyone says, make more of an effort?
Love, The Atypical Libra.
My Dear Atypical Libra,
I think the scared to be alone thing is possibly Lower Libra. Some of the most fiercely independent and together people i know are Librans. So i don’t think having-to-be-partnered up is necessarily a Libran trait that you are not living up to. It seems more like Saturn in Libra has rendered you more thoughtful and self-valueing? I certainly don’t think people should be charging around like the Relationship Police, trying to guilt-coerce you into dating. What do you gorgeous, clued-up commenters think?
