I just read this bang-on blog post about relationships. Specifically, relationships that aren't working. And that's the key word. Working. As in: relationships are work. Right? Well, yes and no.
I've been in crappy relationships that have been nothing but work. And I'm in an excellent one right now that takes effort but the payout is massive. Because I'm happy. You know what I'm talking about.
Venus in Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn today and this is a perfect illustration of having the guts and desire but being confronted with obstacles. We are told that anything worth having takes effort. If you're the heavy lifter in your relationship(s), what are you getting out of it? If the other person is working with you, bravo. But if they're working against you....
Banging your head against the wall (Pluto in Capricorn) is work but it will get you no where. There comes a time when Ms. Venus needs to cut her losses.
