Marc asks the collective:
“In this year I know 5 or 6 gay couples in long term relationships that hit DEFCON 1 and exploded. On the one hand it was a shock because in many ways they were the models I looked to affirm that we could have successful relationships. On the other hand it was a lesson that nobody is perfect and that just because things look solid on the outside, that doesn’t mean others have things figured out any more than I do. I’m curious if you have any insight as to why these all hit in such a short period of time and if there’s anything else to glean from the situation.”
Marc, it seems there are endless angles to your questions so maybe people can just comment what comes to mind.
I think of Saturn in opposition to Neptune all year and as these planets broke rank the veil (Neptune) dropped and reality (Saturn) was revealed. Especially in these partnerships that seemed ideal (Neptune) but were in fact an illusion.
On a more personal level I would say you witnessed all these breakups for the reason you state which is also Saturn / Neptune themed in that you imagine (Neptune) people are living an idyllic life (Neptune) and you are deprived of same (Saturn) because you are flawed (Saturn).
So when Saturn moved out and reality was revealed in your case the reality was, “Oh I don’t suck (Saturn) as I had imagined (Neptune).
