Retrograde Cardinal Air Venus starts to become visible, rising above the Sun in the early MORNING skies.
Against the backdrop of Venus’ fledgling reappearance in our early morning skies, there continues to beat a steady rhythm. If you can mute your own processing for a moment and listen carefully, you hear the metronome’s monotonous pulse, hypnotically entrancing you, keeping you dulled down, locking you within your pain body, binding you with fear and feelings of unworthiness, keeping you from feeling the enormous possibility of your heart.
The Venus Cycle takes place at a perfect time amidst what has been a time wherein the old system has been fighting for its own survival. You have been prompted to surrender and release those values that no longer serve your heart based path. Many of those values beat to the metronome’s pulse and have nothing to do with you (per ce!). Many of those values have been designed purposefully to strip you bare; drain you of your time, creativity and joy; bled you dry by worry of the future and financial anxiety; disenchant you through exhaustion, thereby preventing you to feel the magic of living and loving; and keep you in a state of busyness, anger and frustration, thereby thwarting you from real physical contact with another soul.
She has been reborn in Scorpio, reminding you of the depth of how you love, and as she slipped back into Libra you are called upon to openly articulate from your heart, without censorship. There is no need to hold onto past heart-experiences, disappointments, hurts, frustrations or egoic desires. Those conditions have been settled over the past few weeks. Yes you can choice to continue to journey with them, but the energetic binds that held you have arisen to be acknowledged and healed, which is why it has felt so exhaustingly intense over the past couple of months, as your heart-processing was so acute. Now, however, is a new dawn and it IS possible to allow the innocence of lOve reborn and the wisdom of lOve anew to guide you.
It is okay if you are not feeling it yet, after all the seed has only just been planted and it takes time for it to germinate. Embracing a new start takes time. It unfolds in stages and penetrates each layering of your own processing bit by bit. Yet, there is a new rhythm; a new beat to dance to; a new pulse to surrender and be enveloped by. Zealously clinging to the vestiges of the dying patriarchal system is the old way; living from an open heart, as love and lOve co-exist with each other is the only way. So breathe in the fecund possibilities that this renewal of your heart offers and know that despite the heaviness that wants to consume you, you are limitless and that you possess the power to truly create afresh a new heart-reality.
