Hi everyone, I'm Nicole and new to the board!
I'm very close with my cousin who is 27yrs old and he's always been like a big brother to me. One thing that has always puzzled me is that he doesn't get out much, never dated, and doesn't have any friends(except during college). I remember growing up how bad his older brother and sister would make fun of him when younger. Also, in grammar-high school he would get picked on at times, but he still had a very outgoing personality and many friends that he hung out with all of the time. I don't know, but after high school and college he doesn't keep in touch with any friends anymore and seems like being "alone" all of the time. I've tried setting him up with a girl, but it seems like he's totally uninterested in dating or fearing rejection.
He works and loves his job and interacting with his clients, but when it comes to his personal life it's the complete opposite. I really do think that my cousin would love to have a girlfriend and friends, but I wonder if he's just fearing rejection and just prefers to be alone.
I've been studying his chart and noticed a few retrogrades, especially the mercury, he is very smart, but often has trouble getting his point across in words. He has a lot of T-squares involving cardinal signs cancer, aries, and libra. His sun cancer squares moon aries which could be causing much conflict within himself I think because he is very pessimitic at times. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
Also, can anyone else see anything in the charts that could explain why he is a loner and will he always be this way? I would appreciate any input and thanks in advance.
