~ Beyonce, Superpower
There is, in the first place, the difficulty of expression. We all indulge in the strange, pleasant process called thinking, but when it comes to saying, even to some one opposite, what we think, then how little we are able to convey! The phantom is through the mind and out of the window before we can lay salt on its tail, or slowly sinking and returning to the profound darkness which it has lit up momentarily with a wandering light. Face, voice, and accent eke out our words and impress their feebleness with character in speech. But the pen is a rigid instrument; it can say very little; it has all kinds of habits and ceremonies of its own. It is dictatorial too: it is always making ordinary men into prophets, and changing the natural stumbling trip of human speech into the solemn and stately march of pens.
~ Virginia Woolf, The Common Reader- Montaigne
Your happiness is still in your hands. Venus is harmonizing with Saturn in your fulfillment zone, implying that you can work for what you want. Take yourself seriously; have a clear understanding of your heart’s desire and a plan for giving it form; and commit to an authentic expression of what’s inside you, whether that be a creative project, a romantic relationship or something else altogether.
