There is always a blessing in our situation and many times we are being cleansed in the heart center. We are all made of love and will always return back to that no matter how much time it takes to get to that point. We can't live our lives with a closed heart afraid of showing our true colors. Life requires us to be vulnerable as that is a strength. It means you are willing to trust your faith more than your fear and that usually leads to the best and most lasting relationship foundations. I stumbled across these quotes on Instagram by Jenna Galbut that truly captured the love that we are all seeking now that we have awakened to our divinity. #truelove
In honor of the last day of the Venus Retrograde before the lady of love goes direct, I figured it would only make sense to post a love post. I have worked closely with this particular retrograde over the summer because it was one of the most potent energies of the summer as it also held the lion gates portal and the blue moon. Shit really hit the fan this summer and love was on everyone's minds as unhealed emotions came to the surface. As past loves returned, current relationships rocked the boat, and new lovers appeared. All in all, it was an experience to bring us back to the authenticity of love. Every experience we had this summer dealing with love gave birth to the wanting of divine unions. A love that allows us the space to be our authentic selves and in return give the other person the same space. A craving for quality instead of quantity and surface encounters.
It also gave us each a reality check on what we expect out of love and what we are willing to give in love. Anywhere we were off balance in a department of giving and receiving was brought up in ways that may not seem fair to us, but much needed in terms of bigger picture. It was a time to get really personal with ourselves and our behavior that brought us repeated patterns that manifested in discord with others. Our hearts were cracked open in July and now we are clearing the air so as Venus goes direct so does our view of love. Now, our eyes are set on the future as we are better equipped to be lovers to ourselves and others. During the Venus Retrograde, I realized how important self love was to manifest any type of union and now I allow that love out to the world to be sent back to me in amazing ways.
