A few years ago, a Libra said to me, “I think you are a great person, but…” A few months ago, a Leo said to me, “I feel the need to be close to you, but…” A couple of days ago, a Sagittarius said to me, “I want to be in a relationship, but…” And as I write this blog, I am just about ready to write off men, but…
When I hear the excuse “I care for you, ‘but,’” I feel like a creepster for my deep desire to merge. What’s ironic, however, is that these experiences resolve Karma; I become more empowered with every “but” by realizing that it is not my doing, it is their choice, and I will be OK. My friend Blue said it best: “wounded masculinity affects us women too.” Not only must we show sensitivity to the wounded man (because that is what divine feminine creatures do), we must often forgo love because of a “but.”
“Rejection. Fucking. Sucks.” says this Leo with an 8th House Moon. Poetic justice is served, however, when you can recognize a shared scar, and accept someone where they are. I have learned how not to block love with each block to love. It is a lesson that reassures through calm and patience for the man who will meet me in love’s arena. And when he does, it will be epic. We will both be scared as hell as we reveal past hurts, begrudgingly. Still, we will learn to trust. We will apply a soothing balm to each other’s wounds. We will heal together, and we will love - no “but.”
