Venus Direct: November 16th
It started three weeks ago.
When Venus Retrograde ends and Mercury Retrograde begins on the same day.
Venus was in the underworld for 40 days as she dug up every layer of unstable foundation that needed to be dug up sot bag we can now align with what we truly want. The rose colored glasses are off and our relationships, values and current circumstances are perceived with crystal clarity.
This carries with it a dramatic shift where we begin to see our lives through the lenses of what we truly need on a soul level to feel fulfilled.
This means that we will or have been ending relationships, partnerships and connections that have fallen out of alignment. Anything that was lost was actually a stepping stone.
This means we can’t bang anymore on closed doors. It’s time to be walking away from anything that your soul is screaming a resounding “No” to.
The Time Is About Rising.
No more listening or feeling at war with either our heart or head, as the energy now is calling us all to pay closer attention to our inner soul voice, following our intuition and instinctive knowing, doing the work, tilling the lawn and planting the seeds and trusting that our steps into the unknown are leading us closer towards the exact life we’ve been trying to create.
As doors close and stay closed, new ones are opening, and even if it’s unfamiliar and uncomfortable these new doors are offering far more rewarding opportunities, possibilities and pleasure than ever before. If you still can’t see the new doors, you ego has not been exhausted or options yet and you are too noisy to see the gift yet.
It’s time to go within and see the gift and stop hiding ourselves or stopping what will give us transformation.
Venus took us through a period of intense, uprooting and deep refinement. We squeezed and rinsed and released a lot of what caused conflict, dysfunction and harm, mostly involving karmic connections and life mission lessons, and many are now feeling a bit more uplifted and cleared – ready to receive healthier dynamics in all ways of connection, worthiness, personal value and inner substance.
A Tango Of Relationship Fate
Mercury Retrograde has arrived with divine timing, on the exact same day that Venus goes direct, so it is going to be testing our strength and resolve on everything we’ve gone through recently, particularly since Oct 5th when Venus Retrograde began.
We may notice that people from our past will be unexpectedly reappearing, some to sincerely make amends or for genuine connection because they are doing their inner work, while others who have not done their inner work will be seeing if our boundaries are weak and if we’re quick to forget about the mess they left behind.
This is a time of reorganizing what we value and love and how “connected and whole” we are from HOW we value and love so choose wisely who is allowed back in, as not everyone who cycles back during a Venus retrograde (in Scorpio) has the most conscious of good intentions.
Some people pop back up solely to serve their own agenda – maybe for attention, validation or for gain of some type – but whatever the reasoning, just be sure to listen carefully to your inner voice and notice how your energy feels when you’re in contact with them and also when you’re away from them. Does there energy fill you up and inspire you or drain you? This will let you know who to be more around and less and less around.
Retrogrades don’t happen to just bring us back into the past so that we can reminisce and feel nostalgic! It’s more about the new action and new perceptions it’s creates.
Retrogrades are simply like wise spiritual teachers that show us our past us so that we can see how much soul-growth has occurred, and so that we recognise that we’re no longer fooled by surface level friendships, relationships & commitments that don’t have any purposeful depth.
And in the greater ways of the ways, if there is no depth, integrity, authenticity and sincerity then it will cause harm rather than nourishment to our soul, and the universe is always collaborating and aligning to assist our soul and remove anyone or anything that is out of alignment.
Yet essentially is is still up to us and our own hearts will. This is why it’s so essential that we don’t fall at the first hurdle and return to people, places, things or stories in our head that drag our vibration down low and take us straight back to chaos and unmet pain.
Mercury Retrograde is notorious for being a wild roller coaster ride, with emotions flaring and fizzling and communication going awry. All this means, is we need balance, organization and usually a deeper understanding for clear connection, communication and even healing.
Fortunately Venus has spun our lives over and over, and at times out of control, during these past several weeks, and thankfully has done a lot of “tough work” clearing out what no longer intimately resonates or what no longer aligns with who we are now and where we’re heading.
This means that i don’t think for most that this Mercury Retrograde will not be as dramatic and painful as previous ones, thankfully!
Mercury Retrograde occurring at the end of the year is perfect timing as it will radically, and brutally at times, cleanse and clear our lives so that we close 2018 freer, lighter, and emotionally, mentally and spiritually healed, ready and prepared for a magnificent start to a brand new year …
However – that’s only if we’ve been doing the “soul work.” If we’ve dug our head under the ground and ignored and rejected whatever has tried to get our attention, we’re in for a wild ride – but take heart as ultimately retrogrades happen for our highest good, for healing, evolution and soul ascension, so regardless of whatever we go through, have faith that it’s all happening exactly as it is meant, and needs to.
