Really hope you’re beginning to feel better now. Have just read your Daily for Wednesday and it sounds like a coincidentally timely warning!
Massively battling an attack of Love Zombie. It could turn into a nasty one; biz and pleasure mix, multiple parties, various countries, significant life changes, etc, etc, etc.
I know the drill – you’ve drilled us hard – stay focused on The Awesome, channel zombie energy into productive areas, harden the farq up and be an adult about it (I’m paraphrasing here). Bit difficult to do when my up-coming moment of truly individuated Awesome (no delusions here – this will be a new level and I will dictate rules) is inextricably linked with Object-Of-Love-Zombie-Attack. In fact, said Object will facilitate my Awesome, and me theirs!
Still, every time I trip a bit too far into Zombieland, I’m reminded of The Archie Slap from ‘RocknRolla’, so much so that I created the attached gif – you can’t reinforce this stuff enough, it seems.
Mystic, thank you for defining the Love Zombie condition. Just having a name for it makes it that much easier to manage. This may even be your biggest (public?) contribution to humanity so far.
Professional Love Zombie
Hola Professional Love Zombie and hey thank you!
I had not idea Love Zombies were turning pro but hey, we have got to evolve with the Zap Zone, right?
Okay so for those of you with NO idea what we are talking about, the Love Zombie “virus” was first isolated in this post here.
And then you can search the site or use the tags to discover untold other posts and some epic comments re the Love Zombie, um, genre.
Anyway, i think that if you’re evolving and the whole Love Zombie vibe is proving productive, it’s (sort of) okay. It’s only if being a Love Zombie is stagnating you in a toxic stew of e-stalking and tedious obsession that it becomes a problem. I mean, holy Hecate, there are Love Zombies out there who have learned to astral travel, break dance, started successful companies, done Tough Mudder and gotten breakthrough therapy ALL AMIDST THE MOST SEVERE Love Zombie tweaking phases.
One day they wake up, realize they were in love with a figment but fuq, they’ve got abs. Or a million $ in the bank. This may be the difference between amateur Love Zombies and Professional Love Zombies like yourself.
I think, despite the fact she was a highly qualified and professional astronaut in her day, Lisa Nowak may just be the ultimate amateur Love Zombie. This is the woman who drove across America in nappies (so she could not have to stop for loo breaks, i believe) to kidnap the girlfriend of the man she believed herself destined to be with.
The Love Zombie virus can strike even the most intelligent and accomplished of people – in Nowak’s case, she also had Venus quincunx Neptune. Yes, challenging Venus-Neptune aspects definitely put you at a higher risk of being a Love Zombie and yes, Venus is opposite Neptune this week so watch it!
If there is a “cure” for the Love Zombie condition other than time (and in the case of Lisa Nowak, criminal litigation, career ruination etc) it would have to be Saturn. If you’re zombieing out, look to your Saturn and do it hardcore. Or just work, work out, clean house and sleep. Wake up and repeat.
And yes, Truly Individuated Awesome, as you so brilliantly put it, is also an epic policy.
