"It is very difficult to be wholly joyous or wholly sad on this earth. The comic, when it is human, soon takes upon itself a face of pain; and some of our griefs . . . have their source in weaknesses which must be recognized with smiling compassion as the common inheritance of us all."
Venus moves out of your sign and into your values sector today, and this transit will stick with you into the New Year, until January 3rd. Affections stabilize during this cycle, and you value simple pleasures. Your natural talents can be framed in a lovely way during this time. You tend to take inventory of what you have and what you'd like to acquire; as well, you think more about future security and what you'd like to build to achieve long-term comfort goals. You could be spending more money on beautiful things, comfort items, and things that are expected to last for a long time. Salary increases are possible. When it comes to romance, you're looking for familiarity and security. With both Venus and Mars now in your money sector, you can be more possessive than usual, however. As well, your material desires can be powerful! This morning, watch that disagreements don't turn into something more, as there is a tendency to speak too quickly or insensitively.
