What Is A Love Zombie?
“Dear Mystic – What Is A Love Zombie and how do I know if I am one?” That was all the email said. But I sensed an element of concern in the message, a faint whiff of wisteria and mobile phone wallpaper with an “Old Souls Love Differently” slogan on it. Love Zombies all express differently, but there are two main modes: Yearning passivity with religious fervor and Wile E Coyote style antics to attract the attention of the beloved. The Love Zombie replaces actual engagement with the person with divination and chart examination. You know you’re a Love Zombie when you’re trying to parse your progressed composite chart, but you haven’t spoken to the person in four months.
To answer the question succinctly, a Love Zombie is a person fixating on a person who is not interested in them. They generate an enormous amount of energy and feel that they are in a relationship with this person. Only it is a phantom relationship. The Love Zombie affair is not a celebrity crush scenario. It is not even an obsessive relationship. It is a construct. There are such things as fated relationships and people whom synchronicity brings together. The upcoming Venus Retro in Scorpio is a karmic relationship zone for sure. I always hesitate to delineate these sorts of astro-passages for fear of inadvertently triggering a Love Zombie episode.

Below is a list of several of the Love Zombie posts from the archives as an FYI.
But my thinking on Love Zombies and the targets of their affections has evolved over the years. Yes, people with a strong Neptune influence in their birth energies or who are having a Neptune transit are highly prone to morph into being Love Zombies. Nothing ‘real’ will suffice and what better way to transcend tedious normality than by having what is essentially a paranormal affair? Speculation on a long-shot love affair that could, maybe, come off. Fantasies of reincarnated romance beat bickering in the parking lot at Ikea. Or ending phone calls feeling nebulously judged and controlled. They’re ultimately safe.
However, Love Zombies do not become so in isolation. They are not fixating on desirable people without any ‘come hither’ signal whatsoever. The Love Zombie may mistake a flickering alert lamp – like those that warn drivers of landslides in the dark – for a green light. But there is a signal. Future Fakers – a term coined by Baggage Reclaim’s Natalie Lue – specialize in generating instant intimacy on demand. Their goal is to coax out enough desire and flattery from someone to feed their voracious ego.
Behind nearly every Love Zombie is a Narcissistic Qi Sucking Vampire Sociopath.
Think back upon your own Love Zombie episodes and ask yourself if this were not true to some extent?
