This month’s question comes from a damsel in distress:
“When will I find love?”

The best way I know to answer your question is to hit you where you live. Here goes: Act I, scene I: the little princess is born in a palace surrounded by servants at her beck and call. Act I, scene 2: She has to begin to play with the scullery maids’ children and learns there is poverty and lack in the world. Alas. Act I, scene 3: The beautiful over-protected maiden leaves her comfort zone and finds that there is a world for which she is unprepared. You may or may not be a princess born in a palace to rich parents but you definitely have lived in your own storybook fantasy world.
Okay, so I am being a bit dramatic and fairy tale-like, but, perhaps, a bit as you are: living in a dream world but having to put up with and field your way around the other eleven signs of the Zodiac. Quelle dommage.
What I have to say to you is written with love and affection with just the slightest whiff of Aqua di Parma to lilt my prose. First off, we always need to look at the whole chart to see how things fit together or don’t. In your birth chart, you have four planets in Pisces with the ruler Neptune in Scorpio: other-worldly, ethereal, unrealistic with secrecy throw in. All of this says that you are very emotional, an Emmy-winning drama queen steeped in an overload of Fantasia. Your tendency to being passive or passive aggressive may be couched in loveliness and light with little room for saying how you feel, unless it is to someone who usually agrees with you. Your remedy for all of this is to find your voice, speak your truth—even if it’s a bitter pill for you and your audience to swallow—because the truth will free you from more negative and entangling alliances with distortion and deception.
Your Venus, ruler of love and money, is in the cold and remote and ice-maiden sign of Capricorn. With the Moon in Aquarius in good aspect to Jupiter in Gemini, you can speak and move people with your mind and ideas but that is not how love springs eternal or for as long as it can. Love happens when one is vulnerable to being hurt by reaching (“Should one’s reach exceed her grasp or what’s a heaven for?”—Robert Browning), and stretching and morphing and spinning the more attractive qualities into a hope chest.
To tell the truth, I think that you have a brilliant chart and one that says that love will come to you after forty. Are we after 40-years old? Gotcha! With your progressed Moon (as we age, planets move) in Leo I think there is a strong possibility that you will meet someone who is a bit younger and who acts and thinks older—perhaps a Taurus—next summer (progressed Moon hitting Saturn, oftentimes the planet that is connected to marriage and responsibility). Keep it real and continue to look at what needs to change in you and you will be ready when the gentleman caller knocks at the door of your heart. Sweet dreams and patience with yourself as you change you to include him.
