I Love You to Death

New moon in Libra, Full moon in Taurus,
Mercury retrograde in Scorpio.

"I love her or him to death," they often say, and I tighten up when I hear it. Of course "Till death do us Part" is an attractive concept. Maybe. This lunation carries the Venus-Pluto theme. People's relationships could be eager to talk with the attendant Scorpian obsessions, jealousies, envies, longings, pains, pleasures, and the life & death enjoyments of the Venusian-Plutonian get-together.
Even though Libra and Taurus are both Venus ruled, they are entirely different. Libra is idealized love in the mind and equality, while Taurus is selfish love and gratification in the sensual realm. The Scorpio opposition complicates matters considerably. How shall I share? To have sex or not to have sex? Libra says maybe, Scorpio says no, Taurus says yes. Whose money is it anyway and how it is dispensed? Go away. Come closer. Don't you dare talk to anyone else. Where have you been? You're mine. You don't love me enough. You want me too much. I didn't do anything (Libra). Just touch me (Taurus). Let me eat you alive (Scorpio).
So as you can see, the barter in relationship could get complicated. Relationship factors can be easily studied and reviewed. The Mercury retrograde is a good tool to delve deeply with and use for emotional reality in communication. Buried resentments emerging, visceral connection established or broken, desires delineated, loyalties established, possessions kept or shared. Libra and Scorpio govern excretion and elimination, so waste matter in these relationships can be removed. Mars in Cancer is providing heated moisture. Equitable exchange and growth, with Taurus factoring in, are possibilities.
Of course the devouring of the mate connected with Scorpio could conceivably be an ever-present threat since this lunation is only a prelude to the month long Sun in Scorpio coming up, next new moon there too. Delectable insects beware when nearing the spider's web. As far as serpents go, I think they're generally harmless.

I've been enjoying the tensions of this configuration. I'm experiencing a lot of extra energy for which I have plenty of sensual and athletic uses for :-)

I just came home from a conversation with a very dear friend--who had me confused about Mercury in Scorpio. She claimed it wasn't until the 21st and I did not have the confidence to agree/disagree. Was I wrong? I was so sheepish. She was essentially teling telling me I was being TAURUS about it (ie. stubborn).
Yeah, and it's still in Scorpio LOL!

Yeah, your friend is confused. :-) Happens to everyone. Must be Mercury retrograde, or something.

People say just about anything. Hardly worth disagreeing, oftentimes.
