Have you ever met someone and been caught up right away? This is my style, with Uranus in my 7th house but there are other instances where an obsession develops; some of these situations can last years. I know this from personal experience.
There are classic signatures for this, such as Venus or Mars in one chart, aspecting Pluto in the other, but in practice, it’s not always that straightforward. For example, the aspects mentioned can easily keep far enough apart, nothing develops.
I maintained an obsession with someone for nearly fifteen years. I did not feed this thing, but it persisted in my psyche until I one day, I snapped. I had to, because this was hindering my growth.
I’m surprised this hasn’t happened to me more often. My chart shows the potential for it, with a packed 8th house and Venus square Neptune which is capable of yearning ’til the cows come home. But there has only been this one time.
I got curious about the cross-aspects. Oddly, I’ve never looked at this before. It was a bit surprising. This person has a Moon, Venus, Neptune T-square in Cardinal signs that lies on top the angles of my chart. *Click.
They also have Mars in Scorpio squaring my Venus which would be classic, and while this is generational, the person’s natal Pluto conjoins my 7th house Uranus.
I think these aspects explain the instant attraction but what about the way it endured? It has to be due to the Capricorn / Saturn factor, which is there, in spades.
Have you ever experienced a significant obsession with another person? What was going on between the charts?
