As a sign ruled by Venus, you appreciate the importance of material wealth and relationships in making the world a pleasant place to live in. But excessive concern with ensuring you have either or both in your life can lead you away from truly soulful experiences that contribute to our contentment, which is a more stable emotional state to sustain versus happiness which is an emotional high that is often accompanied with a low too — what goes up must come down.
It seems as if you are so utterly bent on achieving financial or relationship stability just now that not only are you curbing your instinct to turn away from a certain situation but you are also, ironically, going against the very principles that make you desire the aforementioned stability. Put simply, you are not letting yourself break a rule that you want to, but you are breaking all the rules that you would not want to (if you were thinking straight!).
Fear of lack might also be tempting you to adopt certain social, moral or legal conventions that really don’t seem true to you. Project ten years ahead from now and ask yourself if you would like to keep going down this path you are currently on. Only you know what is best for you — but think not in terms of material or tangible well-being, imagine instead the state of your soul in the future as a consequence of your decisions. Material safety, while important, is no match for the health and happiness benefits we get from experiencing the bliss of being one with ourselves. In fact, absence of the latter can undo the boons of the former.
If a group or institutional decision seems to not go in your favour, the silver lining, although you may not acknowledge it as such, is that your soul is being liberated from the bone-crushing clutches of desire.
