I’ve heard a lot of complaints by women about men being emotionally detached. As men we are supposed to be the stronger and more emotionally grounded sex. There are also many emotionally detached women out there as well. What all of these people are missing, is that there are many ways different people process emotions depending on their astrological make up. The people who are “emotionally detached” are really people who process emotions in a way the accuser doesn’t understand. On the flip side, the “emotionally detached” person can’t understand what the big deal is about. While there are genuine cases of course, of emotional detachment due to trauma and other life experiences. I would assert that its a simple element or aspect incompatibility in the natal and synastry chart. I will give examples of some emotionally detached aspects and planet placements.
Moon in air signs – It must be understood that air is an objective and rational element. Raw emotion is strange and confusing to these individuals and they will be uncomfortable with expressive emotions.
Moon in Capricorn- Moon in Capricorn is in detriment, and has trouble letting emotions go freely.
Moon aspecting Saturn– Saturn being the planet of structure, order, and restriction is a natural enemy of the moon which needs to be free to express itself.
Moon aspecting Pluto – Controlling emotions is very important and emotions are deep and intense but not demonstrative.
Venus in air– too much emotional probing and analyzing is uncomfortable for these natives. Possessiveness is not an attribute that is looked upon positively by these natives.
Venus aspecting Saturn– Demonstrative love is not a real hallmark with these aspects so significant others will find these peoples coolness a bit too cold. Saturn is an enemy of Venus.
Venus in Capricorn– Again, Saturn is an enemy of Venus.
Venus aspecting Pluto- Expression is controlled but the intensity is present because the upper hand must be kept.
These are a few of my findings. If you are having any of these specific issues I can be contacted and this can be explored to see if it is in your natal or synastry.
