I was shocked when my husband told me he felt that love was a curse and I realized he was serious! I have Mars in Libra. I hunt love so the idea someone would think it undesirable was new. I like oddities and concepts that are foreign though. I was open to hearing about this.
I’ve heard plenty over the years. I’ve accepted that his feelings were different than mine and I’ve come to a deep understanding of this.
If you are geared towards some other pursuit and you’re hit by Cupid’s arrow, you’re in deep trouble. When you love someone, you really can’t get away from them. You think about them all the time. You know you belong with them and this is a horrible burden if you have other things you want to do in your life that may be easier to pursue or accomplish if you’re single. Your love forces you to accommodate this other person and if you’re not used to that kind of thing, I can see where it would be a jolt. Consider the times that the other person is demanding. What about when your purposes and theirs cross rather than align? Arrrgh!
I’m so relationship-oriented, I have never really fathomed why someone would choose to be a Priest or a Nun or a Monk or whatever. My grandfather lived this way and I watched that, however he was constantly trying to get a date, even if he failed at it. But I do understand now. I can see how a person might want to pursue a spiritual path or some other path of exploration and falling in love just jacks everything beyond belief.
Is love a curse? Where is your Venus?
