My boyfriend of seven years was recently diagnosed with a mental illness. It wasn’t completely unexpected, but now I’m looking for some kind of reassurance. He is deliberately changing many of his thought patterns as part of his healing. Can we still be as solid as ever?
Getting a diagnosis like this is entirely positive. Putting a name on an illness does not exacerbate it. It makes it possible to get proper treatment and see improvement, which is exactly what I think is going to happen.
Your worry is just classic Virgo stuff. It’s what Virgos do, when their minds are bored. So let me give you something else to think about – maybe some astrology, since I favor the stuff!
Your boyfriend is a double Capricorn, which means he’s ruled by Saturn. Saturn means he’s supposed to be responsible! And guess what? He has a Saturn transit to his Mercury mind coming up here pretty quick. Saturn transits force you to take responsibility – they’re all about control and boundaries. Getting this? He needs to clutch it up and take responsibility for his MIND.
This is all unfolding right on schedule. He’s going to be fine and so are you. You want to help? I know you do – you’re a Virgo. Then understand he’s scared. He’s scared to death. Anything you can do to alleviate this will be enormously appreciated. The best thing you can do for a Capricorn is make them laugh.
