there is hope. Although it’s true that
your chart shows romantic challenges, it
also embodies the possibility of romantic
fulfillment, and I sense
that you’re further along the path
than you realize.
Having recently crossed the threshold from
youth into the wisdom years, as transiting
Uranus opposed itself,1 and
with stimulating current planetary activity,
in the perfect position to turn your challenges into
assets, as your years of internal work begin to pay
Here are some tips: Your 3rd-house Scorpio
stellium, with Mars leading the pack and
a close Neptune–Sun conjunction, implies
the predisposition to fall in love with the
potential you sense in a man, ignoring reality.
By now, you surely realize that a kiss won’t
turn a toad into a prince. Let wysiwyg2 be
your motto in matters of love, applying doubly
to men in your age group (over 40) whose
patterns are usually quite well established.
The Sun–Neptune conjunction may also
produce the “shape-shifter” effect,
where you (consciously or unconsciously)
redesign yourself to fit your love interest’s
ideal, losing yourself in the process and
ultimately losing the relationship. when
transformed, your 3rd-house Sun–Neptune
conjunction (inspirational thinking) can
manifest as the capacity for creative visualization.
Ground your vision by actually writing down
the qualities you want in a life partner.
Keep revising your list until you find your
true love. You can have the relationship
you long for. The power of faith (Neptune)
helps to attract it to you. Write affirmations
to overcome doubt (also Neptune). Hold the
intention that you will attract the right
your 3rd-house planets in this way is powerful.
The shape-shifter tendency is supported
by your Libra stellium (including the Moon, Venus,
and Mercury in the 2nd).4 You’re
a really nice person who doesn’t
like to disappoint anyone and a natural romantic
who wants to believe that there’ll be a “happy
ever after.” Even if your partner’s
words and his deeds are not in alignment, you may
excuse the discrepancies. But don’t allow
others to take advantage of you.
Define your boundaries (5th-house Jupiter–Saturn
square Venus–Mercury) and, most importantly,
claim your power (Pluto rising). Overcome the
"Ms. Congeniality" Libran tendency; let your
Pluto Ascendant connect you to your inner strength.
Risk being true to yourself above all else, and
be anyone’s pushover.
Live your values because, without them,
life has no pizzazz. Your Libra Moon trine
5th-house Jupiter and the Part of Fortune
in the 11th shows the benefits of connecting
to those with whom you resonate, leading
to friendship and even love.
With enigmatic Pluto in Virgo rising and
the predominance of your planets beneath
the horizon (an internalized rather than
externalized personality), you may be more
of a mystery to men than you realize. Show
up fully and reveal your true feelings. This
may scare some people away — but only the
ones you don’t
With transiting Uranus stimulating your
angles (restructuring relationship and security
patterns) and solar-arc Ascendant conjoining
natal Venus (ready for love),5 someone
who rocks your world just might show up.
Near the end of 2006, keep your eyes and
heart open, as transiting Saturn sextiles
natal Venus, the progressed Moon crosses
the Midheaven, and the solar-arc IC conjoins
your natal 5th-house Saturn, all indicating
an inner readiness for deep and lasting
connection. Meanwhile, reflect upon this:
"What does it take to stand fully
in my power?" Transform your relationship
to the world while holding the intention
of attracting your soul mate.
