First everyone should know I have permission to write this. Some people want their problems broadcast for a variety of reasons. First, it gives them air. Seconds, seeing them written often shakes something loose. Third, they may get valuable feedback and fourth, they wish to serve so they donate their problem…
On that note, I was talking to a gal today and she brought me a very fine example of what many will face when Saturn in Libra squares Pluto in Capricorn. Here’s the situation:
She’s got this guy and she loves him although she admits he is not that good to her. The relationship has been maintained for more than a year… maybe going on two and while she would like to be married, she admits the man is not likely to marry to her.
If you think she sounds stupid, she is not. She is just accepting of reality and the limitations that come with it. In other words I would characterize her as conscious rather than someone, “waiting for the miracle to come”. So this is her deal and then her boyfriend turns up sick.
Now he is quite sick and while the picture is not yet clear there is some chance he could become disabled by his illness and this situation has hit her right between the eyes. What does this mean?
If she is a “doormat” when he is not sick and able to toss her at least some coin, will she continue to be a doormat when he is sick and can’t deliver at all? How serious (Saturn) is this relationship (Libra) really? Is she really committed?
On the Pluto side she must now face the shadow one way or the other. If she abandons the guy, then she has to look at that. If she stays and sacrifices herself to him, she has to look at the cold reality (Capricorn) of her psychology (Pluto) there too.
Of what quality is her love? Is it dependent on the quality of his? Is her love er… bullshit? Is his?
The questions are endless.
What do you make of this? What would you do?
