“To some extent you want to identify with those you feel deeply about. You do not love someone simply because you associate portions of yourself with another. You often do love another individual because such a person evokes within you glimpses of your own idealized self. The loved one draws your best from you. In his or her eyes you see what you can be. In the other’s love you sense your potential.”—Seth, The Nature of Personal Reality (via nirvikalpa)
Venus describes your affective life. On the day of your birth, she is found in Cancer. Emotions and sensations are indissociable from your imagination, your dreams and your inner life. There is something romantic and fabulous in the way you experience love. You can really feel passion only within a subtle, refined and quite mysterious relationship. In love, your imagination has unlimited powers. Tenderness is the key to your sentimental fulfilment. You dread violent passions and storms and you strive to fulfil your needs for gentleness and harmony. For you, love is a refuge. You treasure the security of your couple cell and you protect the intimacy and the secrets of your relationship. Feelings make you dream… Your affectivity is romantic and whimsical. Whims are of course the indispensable ingredients of your sentimental life, its salt and sugar. However, you may pour too much salt in your affectivity! Imagination may be tricky. You become the victim of your mood swings and strange desires overwhelm your thoughts. Your romantic sensitivity requires its fair share of dreams and mystery. Better than anyone, you create an atmosphere of sweet intimacy, which is the basis of a fulfilled love relationship, even, and above all, in the everyday life.
i feel like the people i’m closest with have no physical form. i mean they do, obviously. but it’s not their physicality that i notice or recognize, it’s their spirit or energy. but this is only true for people i’m VERY close with like family and people i’ve grown up with. for the most part, it’s really hard for me to look past physicality…which is pathetic, really. i am very much preoccupied with materialized form, which is an obvious taurean trait that i let affect me in negative ways. i mean, it’s okay to appreciate physical beauty, sure fine whatever…but i am far too reliant on the physical world to constitute what is true and what is beautiful.
