WHEN YOUR WORLD IS INVERTED, OBSERVE IT. MAKE FRIENDS, COMRADES, AND FELLOWS. EMBRACE THE LOVE AND WONDER PRESENT IN ALL THINGS BECAUSE YOU ARE WORTHY OF IT.
In western, hetero-normative culture we tend to think of love as bound up in romantic relationships. So you’ll probably see a lot of horoscopes this Venus retrograde talking about love and romance. Well, I’m going off script. That script is hack. If we are living in the truth of the heart there are so many expressions of love. Love and compassion for strangers. Love for the people who have hurt you (try that some time!). Love for your closest friends. Love for your family. And love for your comrades and colleagues, people you DO stuff with. A gathering of old friends, especially work or school friends, may bring up some old feelings of unworthiness to be healed, reminding you of the love and support you really have. All really is full of love. You’ve got an opportunity to open yourself up to it this month!
This Venus retrograde is an excellent opportunity to review and clarify your approach to money and relationships and examine your feelings of unworthiness as they come up over the next few weeks, because those feelings really are the source of the drama you experience! We don’t have to manifest our revelations and lessons in dramatic real world dramas or live in fear of that happening any more! The key to feeling “enough” is already inside of us, in our wisdom and clarity in perception of ourselves. If you feel unsupported, unloved, or lacking, observe those feelings and remind yourself of the love and support you have. 2018 has been a difficult year because it’s been a healing year. You’ve got a chance to reconnect with your self love this month, regardless of what others feel about you!
