This waning cycle brings changes within our relationship with self and others. The mental body shifts and
an increased capacity to connect to spirit arrives. Use challenges as reminders to make necessary changes.
On November 29th at 17:56 PST, Venus makes the leap into its own sign, leaving the challenges of its debilitation behind. Many will feel the relief arriving in the coming days as relationships, money, creativity, life force and health find more stability and harmony. There is still much in the transits that can challenge this stability, but the natural flowing tendencies of Venus in its own sign can help us increase fluidity, love and joy. This increase of vitality is determined by your inner work. It's a time to be radical in your self development, not hide behind false comforts and illusions of safety.
Though Venus is in a more harmonious sign, it is still flanked on two sides by challenging planetary conjunctions. Mars and Rahu in Virgo, as well as Saturn, Sun and Mercury in Scorpio. Venus will feel hemmed in and perhaps cornered. This may result in feeling stuck, resistant, attacked, manipulated, challenged or confronted by obstacles on the path. These themes will be especially relevant for issues that involve all Venusian things- commodities like jewelry and cars, relationships and romance, artistry and creativity, money and finances, health and vitality, as well as all things pertaining to women's issues and the feminine. It's vital that these challenges be used as resources for personal and interpersonal transformation and healing.
This Venus cycle is all about creativity and connectivity, helping us find new pathways of nourishment and vitality, potency and power. It will require radical heart chakra work and re-patterning blockages, resistance and refusal to be nourished. Attending to your inner and outer malnourishment is vital. Where are you starving yourself? Filling up on empty calories in your life? Pretending and wearing old masks? Upholding illusions and false identities?
Use challenges and obstacles to face your shadow. Where are you being cracked open so more light can enter? How is your critic keeping you in the dark, stuck in cycles of fear and lack of self empowerment? Where are you stuck in binary thinking patterns- right and wrong, and a black and white mentality? Unmask yourself and remove the false layers keeping you from being nourished and well fed in life and relationships. Heal and awaken with extra guidance and support. Don't try to move forward alone.
Relationships are vital at this time- in order to deepen your support systems, sense of community and to strengthen your belonging. Find new resources of support if you are stuck or in challenge. The heart needs your attention like never before. Increase compassion for yourself and others. Deepen your awareness about your own needs. As you identify the deeper layers of your inner being, you can express them and gain deeper support from others, from life. Remove and let go of that which is draining you, keeping you from vitality and joy. Simplify your life. Create honesty and resiliency while inviting in new pathways for thriving.
Mercury moves to Sagittarius on December 5th at 22:16 PST, leaving the conjunction of Saturn and Sun in Scorpio behind. This eases the mental body pressures on multiple levels and gets the mind out of the dark depths of our subconscious. Mercury in Sagittarius offers spiritual support and transformation for our mental body blockages. This may feel like a welcomed relief after the many months of intensity and identifying deep, dark inner challenges and blockages.
Certain challenges will continue for the mind in this cycle to come if you resist surrender and awakening to your deeper purpose and meaning. If you force outcomes or objectives, there will be intensification. When ego gets in the way of your awakening process, there will be frustrations, obstacles and excess inner heat. Notice when the fire is scorching you. Where can you let go and let spirit guide you?
Creativity is at an all time high, with maximum flow and fluidity moving through the hands. Intentionally channel this creative life force energy through the arts, music, writing and co-creation. Courageously step into community, relationship and support systems that nourish and increase a sense of safety and support within. Seek balance with inner and outer and express your needs clearly.
Self care and deep inner nourishment are essential at this time. Be mindful of what you put into your body and what comes out of it- through words, actions, expression, etc. What relationships and environments feel nourishing? Which ones do not? Get clear on what works for your mind, body, heart and spirit. Remove and let go of all that is draining you, making you feel heavy. Find healthy boundaries within your life. Simplify the heart and home. Clear away old karmic patterns. Where is the ego resisting and holding you back? How is the mental body ruling your life and choices?
Orient yourself towards feelings and sensations. Let this honest wisdom determine your choices and actions. This is a time of creating radical inner and outer balance. Be courageous with your intentions. Gather support, guidance, knowledge and wisdom to assist your efforts. Above all, land in your gut and let your core values determine what you need. Ask your ancestors, father, gurus and guides for extra support. Let spirit into your life in new ways. Spread your wings, extend your reach and find new flight patterns.
