“People are like stained glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.”
Venus is now in Capricorn and one of the Sabian symbols for this early degree is, “Three stained glass windows in a Gothic church, one damaged by war.” As we head towards the Winter Solstice, this symbol speaks about the need to cultivate courage, wisdom and insight as we face increasing darkness or the waning of the light.
Venus is about values and as she enters the transformative Pluto/Uranus square it provides good timing to get in touch with what it is we truly value – those values that underlie and motivate all sorts of interactions with the world – which contribute one way or another to having an impact – and to make space for improvement if necessary.
