Jessica asked on the last Tooth Fairy blog –
“So Sun-Saturn people need love more than almost anyone?”
Actually that last post was long so I chopped it in half and the explanation for my asserting that a love relationship would be important to my son was cut. Here’s the rest of that bit.
My son has his Sun, Moon and ascendant in Venus (love) ruled signs along with planets in his 7th house so he was born to partner. He will never be happy alone. In fact he got up one morning when he was five years old looking completely beleaguered, “I am so tired of sleeping alone,” he said wearily. I just know he is going to meet his Tooth Fairy young.
I know because he is already looking for her. He hates being “single” and he has a lot in common with the soldier who did the same thing when he was a kid. He showed me his picture when he was about 8 years old. He’s got Pinocchio on his shirt and he looks humble and soulful.
“Does that not look like a kid who to be loved? Look at that kid.”
“Yeah, I really wanted some love. I was already looking for you back then,” he said. “I was just a little kid and I already wanted a girlfriend. I wanted someone to love and someone to love me and I wanted a girlfriend bad. I sure wish I’d have met you back then. I know I’d have loved you and wanted to be with you as soon as I saw you.”
“Yeah, we’d have been attracted. I’d have been activated by you for sure.” I was also a kid who badly wanted to partner.
“Yeah, I’d have loved you and I’d have walked you home, yep. Walked you home and carried your books for you too.”
‘Yeah, I bet you would have.”
“Yep and you’d have hit me with them but I’d still have done it. I’d carry your books from school even if you’d hit me. Do you believe me, P?”
“Yeah. And I would have thrown my books at you because I would not have been able to handle my feelings. I can barely handle them now. There is something about you. I am happy with you but it makes me almost crazy at times. Like I better start screaming or else.”
He looked at me all happy. Anne of Green Gables, I guess. She breaks her chalkboard over Gilbert’s head when he insults her hair so you can see why he was so thrilled when I swung that motorcycle helmet at him. He must have thought, eureka! I have found her!
Assuming you have ever felt this way, at what age do you remember wanting a partner?
