“Some women are really hard to get rid of,” a man explained. “No matter what you do, they just keep coming…”
Pining for an unattainable lover is a classic manifestation of Venus Neptune / Venus in Pisces but I don’t think this covers the gambit when it comes to unrequited love. I have Venus square Neptune in my chart. I would never pursue a man who did not reciprocate my interest.
Many of these situations progress to stalking which we looked at a few months back. Astrology and Psychology of Stalking. Turns out stalking is tied to narcissism and anger and control and jealousy. In short, it’s complicated.
In some cases the person is motivated at the idea of making a conquest. My old pal, Dario was a good example of that. He was pure Mars. Clean Mars, is what I’d call it. An unafflicted Mars is generally not malicious. It just wants to conquer. It’s programmed that way.
Other unrequited love situations my be Pluto-themed. For example the grown up “daddy’s girl” who pines for another woman’s husband (Daddy substitute), with no idea what is driving her.
Have you experienced more than your share of “unrequited love” (on either side of the equation)? What do you attribute this to?
