Evening Star, Fixed Water Venus starts to station ahead of her 40 days retrogradation
1 and 20 days to go…
The memories of love not known, of love forgotten, of love lost, of love past, of one-way love, of love denied, of love forlorn, of love disappointed, of love expected, of love overlooked, of love… how intense it is; how deep the heart has sought, fought and longed; how much you have to offer, but how complicated it has become; how many sliding doors you have walked through and how much learning has taken place to bring you to this place.
And as, once again, you stand at a threshold, preparing to release expectation, entitlement and hunger for love, you can truly see the myriad reasons why the pain has been necessary, and how deeply you have grown, how wizened (not hardened) you have become and how you have come to know lOve through love. That is what you have centred yourself on over the past 18 months; that is why so many losses have occurred, as you have let go love for lOve; that is why the medicine has been so deep, so profound and so penetrating. It has altered your understanding of what you truly need; it has changed the way in which you attract people into your life; it has had a deep impact on how you have generated sustenance to support yourself; and it has helped you break through the illusion of those whose promises could never be fulfilled.
The retreat journey will support you in releasing those deeper legacies, like ivy sprawling over olden brick, that looks ever so enticing, yet weaken and undermine what you have created. This time is precious and deeply profound, as you prepare to let go those ancestral scripts that have kept you from knowing what lOve is…
