Venus at the Second Gate:
Venus is in her ascent from the underworld- highlighted by a series of conjunctions she makes with the Moon (or rather the Moon makes with her to be technically correct) after becoming visible in the Northern Hemisphere following rebirth that occurred in January. You can observe this beauty tonight just after sunset where hopefully the Moon will have emerged as a thin sliver and appear near to the bright goddess Venus.
Technicality aside- today marks Venus reclaiming the power of her Sacral Chakra- her Creative Belly chakra. This is happening in the sign of Taurus- an archetype said to be ruled by Venus and drenched in beauty, pleasure and the sense of belonging to the Earth and our bodies. Where have you given away your power to create? Where have you given away your right to pleasure? Your right to enjoy your life and decide how you want to do that?
Where have you given away your power to create abundance in your life? Have you accepted untruths that you are not deserving or able to feel truly, wholly, entirely abundant? Are you waiting for approval or permission to act? Today is a day that the Goddess Herself joins our Moon to channel a new light to you. Take a moment to receive the message- be open to allowing something new to be birthed inside you.
Take some time to enjoy yourself, your life, this Earth, your friends, your food, your art, your abundant nature- and just observe the Nature of abundance. Maybe you notice how when you enjoy life, life enjoys you. How in generating abundance for the world, the world generates abundance for us. We each have a unique art to give to the world, and this takes many forms. Today may offer us the courage to express that.
Creation is what Nature does- it is the pulsation that runs in a through others and all of nature. Just like Nature creates at its will- so too is it your birthright to create. You are allowed to create the visions you receive. In fact, it might even be what you were sent here to do. Your expression in the world is needed- Venus only asks that it be beautiful to you and grow from the soil of Love.
Blessings of Love and Beauty,
