I’m the Queen of the Love Zombies but also an astro-novice so I’m not fretting over charts (only because I don’t know how), really confused and wondering if you and/or your readers might have some advice? I’m not going to go bore you with details but basically I’ve been with my boyfriend for four years and he is unwilling to speak to me about the future and the possibility of marriage. After trying to talk to him and trying to leave him alone about it for a long time, I’m to the point where I don’t even know what I want anymore. I’m pretty resentful about the whole thing. He really wants to stay together but literally will not speak about marriage – even in the distant future – so part of my feels like I’m just wasting my youth waiting to see if this relationship evolves or evaporates.
What would some good decision-making exercises be? I’m always so decisive that I’m at a loss now that I’m on the fence. Would this be something I should get a chart reading over?
I’m Aries, Aquarius Rising, he’s Virgo, Gemini Rising.
Queen of the Love Zombies
Dear Queen of the Love Zombies,
Sorry but this all sounds too reasonable for you to be anointing yourself Queen of the Love Zombies. In fact, be careful of what you announce, lest you provoke some genuine Love Zombie to tear herself away from the gin/fake Facebook i.d creating/torturing the Oracle to give it up with the ‘right’ response already and screech down to rip your lovely innocent hair out and make it into extensions so that she looks hotter for the next actual in-person stalk.
Seriously. A proper Love Zombie is never this nice. You have to start off your email inquiry to me with a simple TELL ME WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN WITH ME AND TONY IS THERE A FUTURE GOD HELP ME YOU ARE MY ONLY CHANCE I KNOW HE LIKES ME SO WHY WON’T HE SPEAK TO ME EVEN THOUGH I WAITED AT THE CLUB TILL 4AM DO YOU THINK THIS IS THE CAUSE OF MY TINEA BECAUSE OF A CHAKRA IMBALANCE? And then go on for several more pages before announcing that you need a response URGENTLY.
Anyway, maybe i am being old-school here but i think four years of monogamy (?) is plenty time enough to expect some sort of a movement toward a more enduring arrangement, yes? Resentment is NEVER a good look though. It will ruin your skin tone and send revolting anti-pheromones coursing through your body.
So he is a Virgo. Could we work with this a bit more? Do you make the bed with hospital corners? Have a nurse outfit? Plus tell jokes and always have excellent gossip for his Gem Rising?
You could always fix the Feng Shui and then wait till the end of July – when Venus out of shadowzone, this Retro is part of why you’re suddenly arcing up about the future of this thing – get the house professionally cleaned and then propose to him? Or just send him an ultimatum in point form? But they say with ultimatums that they only work if you’re absolutely prepared to follow through on the threat.
Also, is it poss that with your ruler Uranus now IN Aries, that you could be subliminally wanting to engineer a bust-up and get more freedom? Would it be worth doing a pre-emptive revenge makeover? Whispering ‘marry (your name)’ in his ear while he is fast asleep at 5am?
I am sure the peeps here will have more helpful suggestions than these ones – THOUGHTS?
