Are we living in alignment with our Soul's highest vision for our lives ... our truest path of service?
Stunningly beautiful, tonight! Venus is meeting the Moon at 22 Aries, and is rising into the Third Eye Gateway of Perception. This is where we receive an 'alignment check' to make sure we're living in alignment with our Soul's highest vision for our lives ... our truest path of service. Venus is only here once every 18 months, so it's worth taking the time to contemplate Her presence at this Gateway.
For those of us who intentionally work with the Divine Feminine, we are encouraged to create an altar that honours Her month-long journey through the Third Eye Gateway. I'd love to see photos of what this means for you, in the Comments below!
For those who'd like more details, read on!
Needless to say, this is a critical year for all of us. But before we get any further into it, Venus is asking us to check in with our own deeper wisdom to ensure that all our strenuous efforts are being channelled in the right direction. There's no point summitting a steep, difficult mountain if it's not even OUR mountain, right??
So, the question we're being asked right now is this: Are our decisions and actions in alignment with our Soul's higher vision for our Life or not? And if not, what can we do about that?
Please realise that we each have the potential to make significant contributions to our community, not only through our choice of profession, but simply by showing up in the world as our authentic selves. When we follow our inner-directed path of service, it benefits everyone. So, it's in everyone's best interests to fully show up in our own life!
As Dane Rudhyar once said, "When you don't follow your nature, there is a hole in the universe where you were supposed to be." (I hope that lands!)
Here are some timely, Venus-in-the-6th-Chakra questions for us:
Can we act on our own internal sense of direction and power, rather than submitting to the fears and expectations that others have for our lives??
Can we tell the difference between our thoughts and decisions that are motivated by strength and purpose, and those that are motivated by fear?
Are we aware of the connection between our mind and the life we are creating? (Law of Attraction)
Do we have the courage to share our vision with others? When we share our sense of purpose, we can be held accountable to it ... and, importantly, we become "help-able".
. In one of the fabulous Venus Alchemy courses I took with Tami Brunk and Cayelin Castell, we were asked to explore the following 6th Chakra 'Demons' while Venus journeyed through this Gateway. Do we need to battle any of these 'Demons' to more fully commit to our higher Path? It was a powerful exercise, so I share them with you here:
Anger at Life’s Unfairness Demon
Lack of Vision and Purpose Demon
Vision With no Helpful Action Demon
Hopeless About the Future Demon
Catastrophobia Demon (It’s All Going to Fall Apart)
Caught in Your Small Vision Demon
Too Absorbed in What IS to Imagine What Could Be Demon
Black and White Judgment Demon
Fighting to be in Charge Demon
My Way or the Highway Demon
Can you relate to any of these? Name yours in the Comments below.
And I'd love to see photos of your Venus altars this month!
Peace Juliette xo
