If you're still in denial of wesley's death clap your hands

Jane Austen and the Brontë sisters hold our imagination because, ultimately, they all believed in women thinking for themselves and only marrying a man they truly loved.

Ahead of their time? 

Man, they were ahead of people in the world NOW.

Don’t forget that. Even 150 years ago, smart, sensible women knew what the deal with marriage was.

“You know, outside the circus, most people were afraid of me. But I didn’t hate them. I pitied them. Do you know why? Because most people will never know anything beyond what they see with their own two eyes.”

Venus In Cancer
Highly sensitive under the facade they project outwardly, men and women with this venus sign are nurturing and compassionate in relationships or friendships. They like to make their loved ones feel at home; they have a calming vibe about them. Creativity comes through nurturing. Parenting, entertaining, gardening or decorating the home is the best creative expression for these people.

Venus In Cancer Men: You are attracted to physically natural, caring partners. Brainy people don’t stand out to you as much, in fact they may even intimidate you. Someone who isn’t too aggressive or overbearing suits you best. You tend to reflect other people’s moods, this can be negative or positive. 

Venus In Cancer Women: It may take some time for you to get close to people but once you do you will have no problem protecting those you love. You might be moody at times because of your high sensitivity. Family values interest you. You will alternate between wanting to mother someone or wanting them to mother you. You’re protective and creative.

Famous Venus In Cancers: Barack Obama, Angelina Jolie, Cameron Diaz, Keanu Reeves, Natalie Portman, Halle Berry, Meryl Streep, Russell Brand, Khloe Kardashian, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Courtney Cox, Lenny Kravitz, Rose Byrne, Sky Ferreira.
