“I don’t think I can do anything without a partner,” I explained to a pal. “I really can’t, I just get stuck.”
“I can’t either,” she said. “And people give me a hard time about it.”
“Because they think you’re like them?”
“I don’t care what hard time they give me. I can’t get anywhere without help. Like a book. I can’t write a book until someone shows up and partners with me. If there is no partner, nothing is going to happen.”
“Well I’m the same way and I don’t know why it bothers people so much,” she said.
“Maybe they have a lot of Aries or a packed 1st house. I have no idea but have come to this conclusion: If someone doesn’t show up, I’m going to be screwed until they do. And if no one ever shows up then I’m going to be screwed, period. I don’t mean, just anyone can show up. I mean an actual partner. Someone I can exchange with and go back and forth. Otherwise, nothing. It’s just a pure hardship.”
“I’m in the same situation,” she said.
“I’m sure some people operate better independently. But for me everything is 1000 times as hard if I do it alone. I’ve just got to have a running buddy, which means I’m dependent or even disabled to a degree when there is no partner. I don’t mind saying so.”
Do you operate better when partnered, or does a partner hinder you? How does this show in your chart?
