I must say, so far Venus in Leo isn’t working out exactly as I’d hoped. The planet of love moved into expressive and loving Leo last week, but since then I’ve only managed to make a mess of my relationship.
I thought this time was going to be all about love songs and big soft Lion cuddles, because this transit is supposed to inspire people to speak from the heart. But I didn’t think about what could happen if what’s in your heart isn’t all that.
My boyfriend has been consumed with work the past month and I’ve been doing my best to be patient and supportive (read: trying not to complain that I don’t see him enough.) But I’m a sensitive woman with a need for love, intimacy and companionship, and when I don’t get those things I suffer.
It’s been going on long enough now that I reached the end of my rope. So I made the mistake of telling him how I feel — lonely. And his response was to fly off the hook, get angry and tell me I’m making him feel guilty. It was a very defensive response, and it revealed very much what HE is thinking, too.
So, golly, good for us for getting our feelings out in the open. But what now? I’m angry that he was not compassionate about my feelings, and he’s angry that I’m adding more pressure when he’s under enough already. I guess the only thing to do is keep talking. Which I’ll do, er, if he ever calls me back.
In the meantime, I just thought I should fill you in on the flip side of Venus in Leo so you don’t make the same mistake I did and think it’s a get-out-of-jail-free card for saying anything you want. It ain’t, and now I’m in love prison. Wish me luck!
