You probably get at least 50 messages a day from men and women all over the world venting to you by asking for your advice to see if Partner A or Partner B will work for them. I’ve just come to you to say that I’ve recognized WHY I’ve been so plagued with the inherent desire to be with someone and why I tend to choose such horrible mates. [Prepare for some rapid venting] – Its basically because I usually delude myself into thinking that someone is worth my while because I project my fantasies onto them and pretend that they’ve manifested in whom I choose. My quadruple Kataka Sun, Moon, Vesta and Chiron tend to make things more than a bit messy for me when it comes to clinging onto things instead of letting go.
But as of recently….around mid June I believe, I’ve put all of the pieces together (that I’d been aware of but was ignoring until that point) and I’ve recognized what my issues are and I’m learning from them and re-harnessing their energy to transform them into strengths. That’s Pluto aspecting my Ascendant in Scorpio for ya. I’ve realized that I have all of this wonderful potential, but I’ve been utilizes my strengths incorrectly and blaring out a cannon with my weaknesses. I’m a Cancer Sun and Moon with Leo in my Mercury, Venus, Mars and Jupiter and all of this time, I’ve been trying to pretend that I’ve been a full out Leo because I’ve always been afraid of my scuttly crab like emotions. I’ve always thought that I’ve been immune to celestial transits but I’m starting to think that some crazy planetary shift activated some nodes in my awareness and now I’ve sought out to constantly make myself better.
So in the end, it IS possible for a Love Zombie to become Human. But the only way to achieve that is to undergo a blossoming transformation, engulfed by Rebirth.
Pluto transits are fabulous for undoing any Love Zombie conditioning, expectations or mindset. It’s like uncluttering. Suddenly you turn to some stagnant seeming corner of your mind and spot a hideously inappropriate pattern there. It has to go…NOW. Someone else can pick it up. Not you. Cue light and air into an area of your life/mind/room that was previously sort of no-go or certainly not to be questioned at all.
Actually, you DO have an awful lot of Leo going on there. Pride alone should prevent you from becoming a Love Zombie. Transit-wise, i am betting that Uranus has been amping up your Leo (Love Zombies dull their complexions through binge eating/drinking whilst e-stalking and needy neurotransmitters instead of juicy serotonin from self-respect) and Pluto opposing your Crab stuff…so you run everything through an authenticity filter.
But hey, congratulations. There is life after Love Zombie status and it is so rewarding. I actually only get a couple of emails from Love Zombies a day and they are scary. Like the one where the L.Z blamed me because the married boss she was having it off with sacked her when Venus went Direct. Or the one who skim-read the previous Love Zombies post – Lady, You Don’t Need Astrology – did a massive mis-interp and emailed to ask me to mix her up a potion that could “command a man to love against his will” and then when i said no/suggested therapy, she responded with “pity, you’re not much of an astrologer than are you?”
Anyway, here’s to awesome Pluto transits, especially punctual when Pluto is in Cap and yes, they get the job done. Oh and Luna – you have Scorpio Rising…Could you plausibly play a vampire in a glamorous mini-series? I ask to prove/disprove my theory that you can tell someone is Scorpio Rising if they’re vampy. xxx
