An Aries Reader Asks: Do I Have A Chance For Love?

by Jessica Shepherd May 03, 2011 03:35 PM EST

 

Dear Jessica,

OK!  I give up!  You are so right!  For an Arian, Libra’s stink!! Frank proved himself again selfish and negative, and getting worse every moment!!  Did I use up my Full Moon Prayer last October when I prayed for my soulmate?  I got the idea that when he came back he must be my soulmate!  Can I use the same prayer?  It’s still in the envelope!  I will NOT go back to Frank and I know that it happened for a reason. My Birthday was April 18th (1944). I’m older than dirt, but I still want to be romantic…do I have a chance this year? 

Love, D

Dear D,

First, Librans do not stink! (They generally are well groomed & quite fragrant). But yes, the pileup of Aries planets have thrown many longstanding relationships for a loop. Here’s what I’m seeing, we're seeing just how different other people’s realities are from ours -- and that’s frustrating! Collectively, we’re navigating love lessons: ever more courageously stepping into our own spiritual warrior's shoes, to openly and honestly address problems & not making a bigger mess of things.

Just as every soldier of love needs a strategy, Saturn is suggesting you change up yours.  Venus in Aries requires a dynamic challenging and youthful partnership with a spirit of adventure, and yes, you’re wildly romantic! With Venus opposing Neptune, you can also be fuzzy about how to finesse the mundane details of day to day relationship, as well as impatient when others aren’t cooperating (ahem) with you. Currently Saturn is opposing your natal Venus Aries (and you have a Venus-Neptune natal opposition, t-squared by Mars in Cancer). Saturn’s presence in your birthday chart indicates that the time has come for you to clearly and realistically see the human limitations of your guy, Frank, & decide whether you can handle it. And to honestly address relationship strategies you’ve outgrown. 

What strategies might benefit from Saturn's cool reason? Aries' knee-jerk tendency to feel compromised by compromise itself, and to impatiently assume the worst, maybe. But you have a resource here- your courageous honesty. If you’re angry, unclear or fed up with what someone is showing you, talk about it, give him a chance to address your concerns, before you jump to conclusions. The story may be very different from what you first thought it was. And be honest with your self --is he really all that different from when you two first met, or is it you who is doing the changing? Remember, A Love Alchemist's Notebook credo: we attract who we’re attracted to. Other people are a reflection of YOU. 

Saturn is also checking in on how well you’re handling your natal Venus-Neptune opposition. Venus-Neptune requires inspiring, spiritually aware, sensitive and imaginative lovers. Or you may attract escapists, super sensitive people who don’t have a handle on their sensitivity, who instead try to numb it or through addictive off the wall behaviors. If you’re intentional around wanting the former, discerning about saying No to and recognizing the latter, you’re on the right track. So, if you're on the outs with Frank and are single and looking, make a birthday wish to Saturn, ask for a sensitive realist-- and the eyeballs with which to see him (if you haven't asked for a sensitive, romantic, adventurous lover with their feet on the ground, go ahead and update your same soul mate letter, stat). This is the year for tweeks, adjustments and modifications to how you're going about getting what you want from love and Saturn offers the realism to see this truth. You can have the love you want; it's never too late for love!
