“I don’t want to fight about money,” the soldier said over the weekend. I opened my mouth to say something and he shushed me. “Couples always wind up fighting about money, you know they do and I don’t want to do that. I hate to fight about money.”
“Well I don’t think we will,” I said. “For one thing, I am old and I have never fought about money with anyone in my life. I don’t care what you’ve done with other people, that is my history and I don’t imagine I am going to all the sudden change all that much.”
He just looked at me.
“Plus we have a personal history ourselves. You and I mixed our money for 3 years and we never fought about it once that I recall. Did we ever fight about money?”
“No, we never did.”
“Well then I doubt we’ll start. I’ll tell you why I think I have never got in any fights about money. It’s because I don’t waste people’s money. I never do so people who are worried about money always appreciate that,” I said.
“I bet they do.”
“Yeah, and the people who don’t worry about money notice this too but it’s not like it bothers them so there is no problem there either. You know money is energy and people don’t like their energy wasted whether they realize it or not. I know it pisses me off when someone wastes my time or energy. ”
“Yeah, they only get to do it once. So I could be trying to get someone’s money but I never am. And I don’t want control via money so that pretty much uses up all the reasons to fight right there.” I looked him in the eye and shrugged. “You can worry about this if you want but I’m not going to. We have no history, our Venuses are in good aspect and I think this is just how it is with us. We don’t fight about money. We may kill each other over which way the wind blows but that’s something different, isn’t it?”
Do you fight about money? Where is your Venus and how is it aspected?
