Thanks Starlink. You brought up a lot of intersting points. I do believe he still thinks about me, we've kept in contact in order to
figure out what to do about the cancer situation. However, he's not making any real effort in it, as its pretty easy to tell he's actually deep in denial. It's like he's still waiting for me to say "Just Kidding!" about the whole thing. He claims he still loves me, but it's a little hard to believe considering the circumstances.
It's a little more difficult to figure out whats going on as we originally both attended the same university, where we met. However we both went home for the summer ( 4 ish hours away from each other) so the distance is hard. I also found out that his decision occured around the time he learned that he would not be able to return to our university until the second semester, which is January. Honestly, I feel like he's keeping me around as a plan b. I really do love and care about him, but I think think anyone deserves better than that.
I've looked at our natal charts and progressed composite charts, we're both undergoing some very difficult aspects right now. Especially in his chart and the composite. Interestingly, the most difficult aspects in ther composite (which started occuring about a month before the breakup) will start to dissolve in January. He also started going through Uranus Square Moon around the same time, which I think is interesting do to it's association due to general emotional instability and dissolution of relationships especially with women. He's also undergoing Uranus square Mars, which started around a month before the breakup as well. Also, ending in early Febuary.
I believe that no one is forced to behave according to their astrological profile, but he really is acting accordingly to the transits. I also now that he's had to deal with a lot of sudden issues in his personal life and his depression, so I really feel like he's not meant to be in a relationship right now and it's for his own good.
I wouldn't be suprised if he did try to pick things up when he returns to our university in January (maybe your eventually), but I'm not sure if it would be for a romantic relationship. However, I feel like it will probably be for a friends with benefits type thing, which isn't my thing. Even if it was him wanting to return to the romantic aspect of the relationship, I don't think it's fair to have kept me as "plan b". I do still love him, but as he's still confused as to what he wants after a month I feel like I've been waiting long enough, so I can't imagine what I'd feel like in "eventually".
