The Venus diary on the 9th of August
In a world that favours the bright and dazzling colours, the dark has developed many negative and fearful associations and it conjures up images of concealment, loss, isolation, madness, failure, grief and the demonic shadow. The alchemical power of such a phase may therefore be lost since the purpose of the dark phase of any cycle is that of transition between the death of the old and the birth of the new. The dark time is merely a time of retreat, of healing, of breathing, of stillness, of true listening, of surrender, of letting go, of dreaming and of preparation.
The name Dark Venus comes from the fact that Venus slips from our sight and therefore is deemed invisible. Yet the irony of this title is that Venus actually is sufficed with light, as she enters the Vault of Light! Her invisibility is lit with the translucent quality of transformation, as she prepares to be cleansed through a transmutation process, after merging with the Full Light of the Sun on the 13th August. This collective heart-pause encourages an active re-evaluation, re-appraisal and re-envisioning of the manner in which you openly and honest express lOve.
Now is the time to take a moment to delve into introspection, pausing and reflecting upon the intricate tapestry of love woven over the past eight years – the tender moments shared, the scripts written in relationships, and the hurdles faced in our financial journey. In this contemplative space, honour the stories and experiences that have moulded you, from the joyous melodies to the heart-wrenching chapters, shaping you into who you are today.
As you immerse yourself in these reflections, don’t overlook the intricate dance of your finances – the challenges you’ve encountered, the trials that have tested you, and the satisfaction that has arisen on hard earned monies well spent. Remember that each obstacle has been a stepping stone, nurturing your resilience and helping you overcome the deeply woven ancestral patterns regarding your ‘worth’.
Within these contemplations lie the seeds of growth and enlightenment. Without censoring your feelings, this magical time is one to allow all emotions to rise; to re-experience and acknowledge each heart ache and heart joy and to thank them for the hard lessons and the ecstasy they have provided you, and to start to dream about what you want to invite into your life.
As you dwell in this sacred realm of heart-contemplation, the altar awaits, a hungry flame eager to consume your imperfections, freeing your heart so are left with clarity, purpose, and the potential to manifest abundance, love, and genuine fulfilment awaits.
