The desire to be single is — believe it or not — just as strong and just as legitimate as the desire to be partnered; the only difference is that one is the popular way to go, and well, ‘being single’ is not the popular way to go.
We’ve been taught since birth that we’re only valuable if we are with someone else as if the presence of another person somehow completes us. As we grow older, we know that life comes with many options, and ‘doing as we are told’ isn’t always the logical choice.
During Moon trine Saturn, which falls on this day, February 1, 2023, we will receive a direct message from our heart, which will tell us that if being single is what we want, then that is exactly what we need to be.
We need not entertain the ‘Vox Populi’ meaning, the popular opinion of ‘the people.’ We are the only ones on earth who know what we need, what’s best for us, and what to do about it all, and we do not need to be told how to live our lives by others.
Understand that there are stereotypes and societal pressures. So much of what makes this scenario up lies in the idea that we’re supposed to NOT be single, that being single is some hellish state and that if we are single, it somehow implies that we ‘can’t get a mate.’
As we mature, we laugh at such silliness, as putting that kind of pressure on ourselves feels insincere and someone else’s fantasy. Today is the day we stand tall in our single-ness because only we know how magnificent being single can be.
The three zodiac signs who want to be single during Moon trine Saturn on February 1, 2023:
(May 21 – June 20)
While you know that, on some level, you may change your mind, today has you picking apart your present romantic situation with a fine-toothed comb.
This means that because your present relationship is definitely on the rocks, this could be your big opportunity to skedaddle. In other words, you’ve been waiting for the right moment to get out of this ‘romance’ and into something more stable…like a relationship with yourself.
During Moon trine Saturn’s transit, you will realize that you have lost yourself in the shadow of this other person.
You don’t see things getting any better any time too soon…unless, of course, you have the nerve to do what you want to do, which is to break up with them and own that single life that you’ve been craving for months. Do it, Gemini… go it. Save yourself.
(November 22 – December 21)
The only thing more tiring to you than being in an endlessly long romance is the sound of people’s voices as they tell you that the only thing that makes life worth living is sharing it with a partner.
Oh, how bored you are of hearing that, especially considering you are living proof of what it’s like to be a happy ‘sans’ partner.
You find all the world’s delights right inside your head, and as much as you have tried to follow in line with the flock, you can’t grasp the idea of being a clone of everyone else to show others that you now have value because you’re partnered with another person.
All of this is ridiculous to you; you have found the source of love and peace, and it is not found in another person — it’s inside your person. And you love it that way.
(January 20 – February 18)
The transit Moon trine Saturn works on your sense of authenticity, meaning it is during this time that you discover that you have to be true to yourself, or your life is a sham.
It takes guts to get to this point, as the world will have us all acting according to the rules, but the rules have nothing in them for you, as they keep on pushing you into this idealized romance; a thing you enjoy but do not wish to commit to.
You prefer being single, not because of anything other than that. It is who you are.
You like being on your own, and you LOVE being able to date whenever you want. Having a choice is the most important thing to you, Aquarius, and you take this very seriously.
You will never do a thing that is expected of you, especially if it requires you to feel committed to a person you don’t want to be with forever.
You choose to be single and probably choose the same tomorrow.
