Venus has been journeying through the Underworld during the past two weeks, having set in the West, passing across the face of the Sun and rising again yesterday in the East. There is a very powerful metaphor within the movement of Venus, speaking to us of an inner, spiritual journey to embrace what is within and emerge again into the outward expression of our Soul essence. At the same time, Venus refers to the Divine Feminine energy and the reawakening of the Divine Feminine within us and our world. The energies have been very powerful and this, of course, affects the physical body as it assimilates, integrates and adjusts to new frequencies.
Now as Venus Rises, we are emerging from a time of deep self-review, reflection and Soul Review , awakening now to new directions and new expressions. Gemini is a strong influence with Venus rising in Gemini, as well as our next New Moon occurring in Gemini. The message is one of finding our balance and equilibrium, harmonizing and uniting polarities and shifting into a state of wholeness within to express oneness in our world. Tom Lescher of www.NewParadigmAstrology.com shares this week about how these astrological energies will be affecting us:
“With my voice, my body, my hands, and my heart, every day gives me the chance to create living art.” Welcome Venus rising from the underworld today! This is the start of a new 584 day Venus/Gemini cycle where she will rise in the east for the first 7 months or so (warrior style that is!). The opportunity is the chance to unite “the worlds”, the challenge is not to get scattered and dissipate your energy on gossip, small talk, and useless trivial pursuits….. can we create together or are we just looking for entertainment? You decide…… aloha! – Tom Lescher www.NewParadigmAstrology.com
It is very clear that we are going to need to hold a balance within ourselves as we go forwards now, sharing and expressing our deepest inspirations and Soul essence. Being present within every moment, firmly centered within our heartspace, expressing our Soul Truths – we are able to be here NOW and flow with energy as it is intended to be.
