Q: “My girlfriend of one and half years and I recently broke up. The split came out of nowhere and left me devastated and her emotional. We are both Libra – she’s Oct 2 and I am Oct 13. She doesn't want to talk to me even though I’m trying to show her I'm fixing my problem. We both love each other deeply and I don't know what to do. I’m trying to decide whether I should fight for her or count my losses.” (Full birth details supplied)
A: You are a Libra, but since you have a Taurus ascendant, or rising sign, your relationship or descendant sign is Scorpio. This means the current cycle of Saturn in Scorpio brings turning points in and around relationships.
Your partner is going through some significant changes of her own. Her Sun is placed earlier in the sign of Libra, and she is in the middle of a dynamic Uranus/Sun transit. This is a cycle about change, freedom and independence. In addition, her progressed Sun has just changed signs. She is evolving into a new person and may need space in which to do so.
You and your partner share some intense Synastry or love connections. Her Saturn aligns with your Mars, showing she helped create security and focus in your life. Her Pluto sat on your Venus indicating attraction, affection and transformation. You certainly shared a really deep connection.
In addition, your partner’s Mars aligns with your Libra Sun/South Node link. This indicates passion, as well as a past life connection. While this adds to the intensity or karmic quality of your partnership, it does suggest that eventually you’d go your separate ways.
As Saturn transits your 7th House of Relationships, you’re ready to explore relationships at a mature level. If this person isn’t ready at this time, the kindest thing – for yourself and for them - is to move on.
