When in a relationship, do you see the reality of the person/situation? The day-to-day? Or do you get lost in fantasy/daydream. POTENTIAL.
Venus in Pisces, Venus in the 12th House, Venus Neptune… they can see what’s Not There Yet but what Could Be There. If only! They see inside you. They see what you don’t see, what you don’t know. And they love you for it and inwardly take the challenge: I shall bring it out! This person’s potential will be born through ME!
There’s some pride there, don’t you think? Pisces Pride? Pride in the ability to sacrifice, to pine, to wait.
It reminds me of this quote from Kierkegaard (really, it does!) from his book Works of Love and it was soooo long ago that I don’t rememeber the quote but I remember a poem I wrote that incorporated the idea from the passage that I am remembering: Time comforts the waiting girl by coming and going.
See? That’s all she has. Time.
When Neptune is bound up with your love nature (Venus) no matter how slippery the tie, you are that girl (or boy) on the high seas. She (or he) may be separated from his (or her) love, but the wait is, can be, thrilling in and of itself. TOO satisfying in and of itself.
It’s as though the other person doesn’t exist. And they cease to need another person! Their fantasies are where it’s safe.
Now I do believe that Venus in Pisces, Venus in the 12th, Venus Neptune… they do see the truth about their lover but who the fuck cares when the person is 1000 miles away and fucking someone else? Their potential doesn’t really matter much then. Their potential = your ACTUAL misery.
