8yr long term relationship/feeling lost and unsure
I’ve been in a tumultuous relationship for just over 8 years. From when I was 18 until 26 and him, 24-32. We are engaged. Have been since 2015 while starting our degrees. We are now finished with our degrees and Over the last month almost, i have began to feel stuck and trapped and unhappy. I’ve raised this with him many times, had couples therapy and discussed the reasons why as him rejecting me for sex/physical affection all the time and not engaging in any romantic gestures and turning me down when I try. Really has hurt my self esteem over time and made me feel like absolute crap. Problem is, I love him to pieces as a best friend. Just no sexual attraction anymore. I have explained this and how sad I feel around this, he wasn’t able to take it so well at first but after around a week of daily fighting with me before and after work we both are so tired and exhausted to remain angry and upset. Now I just feel numb and guilt when he tries to touch me be affectionate now. He acknowledged that he became lazy in the relationship and said that never thought I’d actually consider leaving him, that is why he has changed nothing.

My question is, can anyone please give me some ideas around how we feel so opposite and inflammatory in our communication and love? We both believe we don’t appreciate each other, but we both believe we do everything for the other. ? any predictions or any support would be great. I am unsure of what to do because I love him to pieces but I feel like I’m not in love anymore because he neglected my needs for so long. And last promise to me was broken.

My signs are cancer sun, cancer Venus both in 10th house. I have mars in Taurus and Gemini moon both in the 8h house.
And mercury in Leo in 10th house.

His signs are Aquarius sun in 10th house and Aquarius Mercury in 11th house. His mars and rising are both in Aries in the first house. His moon is in Aries in the 12th house and his Venus is in Sagittarius in the 9th houses ahh I’ve never met someone so infuriating yet interesting to me before. Really fucking with my mind and heart. ?

Thanks, yeah I did end up breaking it off just after I originally posted this. I have now moved into my own place and made many changes and had a lot of friend group up and downs since. I’m happy but absolutely exhausted

hey girl am i looking in a mirror?lol i just ended an eight year relationship because it wasnt going anywhere, we wanted different things , communication sucked which led to dissatisfaction in many areas. we split amicably. astrology aside my advice would be to cut the cord, whats the point? why stay in this?dont u both deserve to be happy and feel loved amd fulfilled? ask yourself where your feelings of responsibility to him are coming from. if they come from fear of hurting him then remind yourself youre doing a huge disservice to him by staying. if you feel like you may realize you made a mistake by leaving dont worry you will be back together if meant to be. maybe all u need is time apart to think and refresh. either way staying in status quo is just causing more harm. its tough but u can do it!

That actually sounds really nice! Heavy Leo influence by chance? Aside from Leo Chiron in 5th.

I do! I love having fun and being adventurous sometimes but at the end of the day, there is nothing more that I want, than someone to do romantic activities and things with like , surprise each other with presents for no reason, set up a favourite meal before the other gets home as a surprise, tell each other how much we really love each other and connect ? definitely don’t get any of that and I have been very into him tor years ahhhh

Yes in 2011 the transits were SatCurn in Libra, Uranus in Pisces, North Node Capricorn/South Node Cancer. Then it switched to Uranus in Aries.

Point, I am making he needs his freedom being Aquarius also more so with Aries rising, allow him that, still hard though for Cancer women to not want to possess, unless you or your planets suggest otherwise, sorry not looked at your chart.
All the best for your future.

Thank you so much GoldenLion32. I felt like we understood each other for years and now it’s like we are on completely different planets. We have both tried to spend more time with one another and had so many open and transparent talks about our feelings but still feel stuck.

We started in our relationship March 9th, 2011. And my Saturn is in Aquarius (is this what you mean?) it’s in my fifth house. And north node is in Capricorn at 0” 42 degrees.

His Saturn is in Sagittarius in the 9th house. North node is in Aries, the 12th house.

Theres a youtuber called QueenAusetHeru her page is Ask An Aquarius, she has ALOT of videos that talk about this type of relationships/situations. I would put a link but theres more than one video that touches this topic.

Hope this helps alittle, maybe taking a look at some could help you see things in a different way.?

Nah, I don’t need it spoon fed thanks. I have been at a conference for work all day so haven’t had time to reply and won’t until later tonight properly. I understood and agreed with your points and appreciate others ways of explaining it too.

Yes, I had to go to bed to write anymore. Not easy learning this stuff. lol I think Generation X just finished learning some of this stuff energetically. Not like we can stop divine appointments, divine order, and divine appointments. I´ve had my share.

I´m guessing she needs it spoon fed a bit more than that...

although both are accurate.

You’re out of balance in a lot of energy with one another.
North Node Capricorn/South Node Cancer (Soul intentions)
North Node Aries/South Node Libra (Soul Intentions)
On has lessons of Conventional marriage, family, and children.
The other has soul intentions of relationships, harmony, balance, weighing the scales, and about the 1st and 7t house.

The other one is learning all the soul intentions from the Root Chakra until the top of Third Eye.

What year did you start your relationship and which Saturn and Nodes?

I meant that one, you put your info in there & his.

scroll down

It will give a brief explanation of the dynamics between you that can serve as
a starting point.

you two have a lot of squares in the moon dept. moon = emotions.

otherwise doesn´t look better or worse than anyone´s really.

from what you say, it sounds like things are basically ok, but there is
a lingering disconnect in the emotions department..

lot of clutter in the mooney stuff though.

there is more.. but start with the basics.

since you don´t report any harmful or illegal stuff going on, I imagine
with some self knowledge and change you could patch things up if you both want to.

there are issues though. but nothing is impossible.

>>It may be finding balance, making a schedule, and making time for one another.

^^so this is the best advice I have seen here so far...

The astrology of the situation is not apt to change much,

and the past is past and cannot be changed..

run the synastry tool on your 2 charts as well, and & think about the results.
it´s not an exact prescription, but do give the results some thoughts, then come back
and ask more questions. People really should start there first, but almost never do.

It seems both of you have some decisions to make, and some actions to take.
But deep down I think you know this already too.

Cancer sun, Aquarius sun, aries moon and aries rising are not things I think you tend to find written in the same sentence together either. At least not one that ends

The Mutable Cross: is usually the culprit in the situation. Sag, Gemini, Pisces, and Virgo.

Gemini & Virgo (Communications) Not being afraid to speak your authentic truth to one another. Often, we are learning to communicate in all relationships through writing, texting, emails, phone, in person.
Can be how we word things in a negative or positive way.

Sag & Pisces (Sacral Charka) and the sound of creation.

What your speaking of is called the Dead Bedroom. There are many masculine and feminine who go through this in their relationships.
This tends to be about the deepest emotional and mental wounds concerning sex as the feminine and masculine.

The Mutable Cross:

Has a few different dimensions to the situation in relationships. It is Mutable in the sense, it is adaptable, adjusting, applying, and constantly expanding on self-education and education the opposite sex.

We learn this through magazines, newspapers, blogs, vlogs, webinars, seminars, camera, film, books, Cd´s, and often through publishing industry their are various belief systems around the globe.

We also go to a therapist, counselor, or unconventional methods.

This can be from sexual entertainment from the publishing and communications industry.

This can be from the medical axis of Virgo/Pisces and Capricorn/Cancer.

This deals with the emotional triggers of past traumatic experiences on body image, self-esteem, and deals with childhood wounds and also past romantic relationships, peers, and their is some type of deep fear involved.

There can be medical and biological issues they just are afraid to face.

There´s a whole long-list or reasons, so it´s getting down to the root of the issue.

The 5th house may also interfere since it may be your working or going to school.

As I have Sag and Capricorn in the 5th, which complicates relationships and work with just about everyone, because when the transits hit my chart to work or go to school, other people want to play and be entertained.

So it can be something that simple that in your 11th/5th house can cause problems between work, education, and relationships. How you use your time, and what you feel is more important.

Entertainment, fun, and pleasure sometimes comes last when you have to be at work, or be responsible in life for something.

It may be finding balance, making a schedule, and making time for one another.

I agree with this.


I am engaged to an Aquarius as well, and as well have been with him for over 8 years. I saw a lot of similarities between you and I. I was hesitant to reply though. I can´t give much advice in regards to astrology as I am very new to it.
I´m sorry you are feeling this way, and hope you reach some conclusions that are in your favor, whatever they may be or bring.
