description of your one true love is deeply
touching. You met this man when your progressed
Venus (ruler of love relationships) was within
a 1.5° orb of
your natal Sun (ruler of your 5th house of romance),
and you had recently completed your first Saturn
return,1 a significant
threshold in anyone’s
life. With your natal Saturn and Venus in
exact conjunction, and natal Uranus close
by, it seems that destiny brought you a lasting
love — but not in the
way you might have hoped.
natal Moon and South Node in the finely tuned
sign of Pisces, in your 11th house of hopes
and dreams, shows a propensity for a rich
fantasy life, which is amplified by the square
your Moon makes to your Gemini stellium.2 No
flesh-and-blood man can compare to the compelling
memory of this lost love that resides in
your heart and mind. Even he himself would
probably have fallen short of the mark, had
you two had the opportunity to actually develop
an ongoing, day-to-day relationship, so it’s
easy to understand why it’s been so
hard for you to move forward in your life.
However, you do have the capacity to change
this: The choice is yours, and the time is now.
In June 2001, you completed your second Saturn
return, as transiting Pluto made a last-quarter
square to your Moon, ending your 30-year
cycle of sorrow. For the past several months,
the progressed Moon has been passing over
Uranus, Venus, and Saturn (May 3 – Sept.
9), awakening your longing for love in the
here and now. Give yourself total permission
to bless the past, let go, and move on (transiting
Neptune opposing natal Mars). Gather together
a group of supportive friends, and create
a ritual of farewell to this past love and
welcome to a new one.
Transiting Jupiter recently entered your
5th house, enhancing the opportunities for
romance. By next spring (May/June 2004),
Jupiter will sextile your natal Sun (5th-house
ruler) as transiting Saturn conjoins it,
providing relationship staying power. The
then-approaching last-quarter square of transiting
Uranus to natal Venus supports the exploration
of exciting new relationships, outside of
your normal peer group. Be bold!
dating service would be an excellent way
for you to meet a suitable partner (Gemini
stellium; 3rd-house Jupiter–Sun conjunction
in a supportive trine to your 11th-house
Moon). Don’t hesitate; perform your
farewell ritual and start surfing the Web.
Drop preconceived notions of who might be
right for you; think outside the box. Ask
yourself what it means to open your heart
to love, and let your powerful capacity for
faith guide you toward new love.
