Low lying Fixed Water evening star Venus slows ahead of her Retrogradation
2 and 21 days to go…
Just ahead lies the 40 day retreat, 40 days in which you can work through any emotional barricades that have been erected to protect your heart from experiencing true jOy and true uniOn. 40 days of reflection; 19 days of heart-searching; 19 days of heart-healing/ forgiveness/ releasing; 2 days of invocation; 2 days of sOul-offering; 2 days of deep, humbling dedication; 19 days to hold a space and coax into being those scripts and patterns that you have planted; 19 days to establish this new heart-centred script and to openly speak forth from your heart, jOy.
As the retreat draws ever close, can you answer ‘what does jOy truly means to you?’ Have you toughened your heart from the vulnerability of rejection or abandonment? Have you replaced jOy with the search for material satisfaction, yet still feel that something is missing? Have you allowed the world to tell you how you should live and what you should be, shelving your jOy as you sup from Ambrosia’s ever so sweet nectar? Have you lost that belief in yourself and have forgotten what it is to live an enriched life filled with heart-felt responsibilities, as opposed to duties and obligations? Time draws ever closer to truly let go of those protective heart-mechanisms that have kept you at bay. Time draws ever closer to let go those people and past circumstances that have ailed your heart. Time draws ever closer to the start of a new heart cycle… So can you answer, what does jOy truly meant to you?
