Leo embarrasses Capricorn, I can tell you. If you have planets in both these signs like I do, it’s positively creepy because the Leo side never grows up and the Capricorn side is nothing less than mortified at an adult behaving in a way that his childlike.
However, with Venus in Leo, this is exactly what I do. This is reality (Capricorn) and when it happens, when one side of me catches the other, well hell. I just don’t know how to resolve this and here is an example…
This weekend I was feeling giddy around the soldier which I am prone to do. Now obviously I am too old to feel giddy, however I do feel giddy and I feel this way frequently. “I have a crush on you,” I said.
“A crush? I’ve felt like that before, I was a kid.”
“Me too. I felt like this when I was a kid.”
“I mean when I was 5.”
“Yeah, me too. I felt like that when I 5, when I was 19, when I was 27 and I still feel that way. I feel exactly like that right now. Er… gushing.”
He looked at me.
“What? I have a crush on you but you don’t have a crush on me?”
“No, I don’t have a crush on you. I’m deeply in love with you.”
“Well I’m deeply in love with you too, aren’t I? Am I? I have a crush, I can tell you that. I am happy as hell!” I said chirpily.
“Damn it. Damn it, I am just like this.”
“Like someone who has a crush. You’re all down here,” I said waving my hand down low. “I understand you are steeped in it but I am up here,” I said bringing my hand up high. “I’m turning cartwheels or some such thing. It’s embarrassing alongside you.”
“P, I’m madly in love with you no matter how you are.”
But that didn’t help much. Nothing like feeling like a flake and knowing damned well you will not be un-flaking any time soon. All this Capricorn and stuck with the heart of a child. A shiny goat? Gah.
Laugh if you want but you ought to try livin’ in this bod. I don’t like being a flake but I don’t exactly want to give up my glee either.
Anyone else cope with Capricorn quincunx Leo? How?
