The 4th January as Fixed Water Venus octiles Cardinal Earth Saturn
Each of us carries a poignant story around our damaged sense of worth, often hidden beneath an impenetrable wall masking a raw and vulnerable heart who is only seeking acceptance and lOve. That story is seldom shared, as pride, self-judgement and shame sit on Imperious thrones, containing and imprisoning the very thing that will set you free. Many darkened pathways open up as a result of the choice to hide that secret, as the pursuit of what you think will give you success and happiness over rides that embedded thorn whose invisible throbbing ache just won’t go away. No matter what you do to create something of value, it will disappoint, as long as the story remains untold, since that critical voice will find a way to judge the inevitable imperfection in all that you do. Depressing, eh? And yet that is one of the roots of wearing that heavy cloak.
Why not, then, take off that cloak and reveal what’s underneath. Why not, write out that story and read it back to yourself? Why not, share your story with someone else, without seeking validation or their pity, without seeking their support or council? Just tell it and see what happens to your heart. What have you got to lose? Why carry such a wall around your heart, when the time is apt to deconstruct those calcified buttresses that limit your truth and prevent you from freely creating from your jOy and lOve?
Why not share?
