Help help help, SOS! I’m a Virgo who just started dating again after a long break. As in i was IN a relationship, a serious relationship, that recently broke up. I said to myself ‘be chaste, be sorted, get therapy, eat raw food, meditate, be conscious, don’t numb the feelings BUT THEN I GOT DRUNK AND MET HIM. Not just a casual “he’ – a HIM. A ‘fuq off holy hell who is this?’ HIM. I saw your “virgos are in for a whack deep week” and so my question is how do I avoid falling for men too quickly? A Pisces, to be specific. All this stuff about Venus Retro has scared the hell out of me. Please help! Pisces. With Virgo. Rebound. Planets at odds.
Whacked Out Deep Virgo.
Dear Whacked Out Deep Virgo,
I don’t think this warrants an SOS. Seriously. Okay, there IS something to be said for not flinging yourself back into the maelstrom of dating after a break-up. But then again, doing just that has a certain Virgo efficiency – back on the horse, back in the water, shock your synapses into getting over the last dude, orgasms with someone new to reset the neural circuits AND the satisfaction that hey, at least you are not lurking about e-stalking at home, drinking Blue Devil Hoochie Juice from your novelty wine glass, crooning to yourself. NO. You are out there being socially active, falling in love and freaking out about Venus Retrograde. It’s healthy.
So, i don’t think you can avoid falling for people too quickly. Love is not like your diet or budget and you just have to control over-spending. Love is more like a magical energy and it does what it wants. You know how you can try to coax it back into a moribund romance but all the flowers and cute weekends away won’t woo it. Or it can be there, flagrant and primal, in the most inconvenient circumstances.
Retrograde Venuses are mysterious. Plenty of peeps meet a soulmate at this time. Others turn their health/art/fashion game around completely. Some enter into disastrous (disaster means against-the-stars) flings with their exes. I think there is nothing wrong with a romance during Retro Venus BUT you don’t commit or try to delineate it till Venus is properly direct.
There are TWO fab dates; Oct 24 is Venus Jupiter conjunct in Virgo – the final outcome of the story begun in May AND and Nov 3 is Mars Venus conjunct in Virgo. So consider having fun (remember that?) along the lines that love is actually supposed to count as leisure but leaving your options wide open till Oct/Nov. Stay in your power and think also that this is a time when you get more aligned with what you actually want in a relationship.
But what does everyone else think?
