Into the Darkness

“Some women are lost in the fire. Some women are built from it.”

Like everyone who watches the HBO hit show Game of Thrones, I’m completely in love with the Khalessi character. Former naïve virgin who evolves into a powerful queen, leader of a large and fiercely loyal army, and a mother of dragons, she’s an all-around badass.

One of my favorite Khaleesi scenes is when she has to burn the body of her recently deceased warrior king husband. During the funeral ritual, she bravely walks into the fire, carrying three dragon eggs that were gifted to her on her wedding day.

The Venus Report (or Reason 5,489 I’m Single)

For Valentine’s Day, I decided to treat myself to my first professional astrology reading. I purchased a Venus Report (which details how love, sex, and relationships play into my natal chart) from @8thHouseVenus, an astrologer I’ve been chatting with via Twitter and Tumblr for the last few months.

My Venus, the planet that influences our values and how we build relationships, is in Virgo. I often hear that it’s strange for me as a Libra to not really be into love and emotions. Well, this is why. Virgo is not a feely sign. It’s analytic, logical, and highly discriminating. In this sign, affection is shown through service and not traditional romance (which people with this placement tend to find frivolous and unnecessary. Sound familiar?). From what I gather, Venus in Virgo chooses more often than she is chosen (Again, sound familiar?) as she is too selective to have it any other way. She is slow to affection and would prefer to remain calm and in control but once she’s chosen a mate, she’s pretty much a ride or die chick.
