The Planet Venus and You

| January 27, 2014 | 0 Comments

The planet Venus sym­bol­izes beauty, love, romance and sex­u­al­ity. She is con­cerned with mat­ters of the heart and body related to love. Venus trav­els across the sky and as she tran­sits we expe­ri­ence the influ­ence of her move­ments, some­times sub­tly and some­times more obviously.

This month, Jan­u­ary 2014, Venus is ret­ro­grade, which means she is trav­el­ing in reverse. When this hap­pens, we have the oppor­tu­nity to do some per­sonal work. We get to review, revise, revisit, rethink, remodel and redo the areas of our life related to the planet Venus.

How would you revise your life related to love, beauty, romance and sex­u­al­ity? If you believe that you are the designer of your life this is a won­der­ful oppor­tu­nity to re-create your vision in these areas. What a beau­ti­ful way to begin this New Year! Here’s how to begin this process ~

You’ll need your jour­nal, some music, a cup of tea or some other drink that you love, and some unin­ter­rupted time.

Make a cup of tea or pre­pare your drink. Put on some clothes that feel sen­su­ous to you, some­thing that you think Venus might wear. Put on some music that inspires you to feel sen­su­ous and let your body move. Begin with a move­ment med­i­ta­tion, in which you allow the music to wash over you. Stand with your eyes closed and imag­ine that you are Venus, the god­dess of love, sen­su­al­ity and beauty. Feel the music as you lis­ten to it, and let your body begin to move in any way it wants. Move, sway, dance, let your body do what it will.

Ask your­self “What is my vision for beauty, love, romance and sex­u­al­ity for this year?” Breathe, be quiet inside and let it come to you intu­itively. You might see an image, feel some feel­ings, receive some words ~ trust that the mes­sage will come to you in just the right way at the right time.

When you are ready to sit, then sit with your jour­nal, put your pen on the paper and let the words write them­selves on the page. Imag­ine that your heart and soul are express­ing through your writ­ing. If words aren’t com­ing, then begin by writ­ing “My vision for beauty for this year is…” Don’t think about it too much and trust what comes to you, how­ever it comes. Then write “My vision for love for this year is…” and so on.

You may be sur­prised at what flows through you. You may feel feel­ings, you may cry, you may find your­self writ­ing what you don’t want. Some­times that comes as a way of emp­ty­ing out to make space in you for the vision of what you do want.  Be patient, accept what comes or doesn’t, and know that this is the begin­ning for you.

Dur­ing the next week, spend a lit­tle time each day with music and your jour­nal. You may get some­thing new or it may be the same mes­sage. You may have dreams about beauty, love, romance or sex­u­al­ity. Or you may be going about your day and sud­denly an idea will come to you. It’s all part of the process.

Take some time and read through what you have writ­ten and revisit your expe­ri­ences of these days and this process. What are the com­mon threads of your vision? Sum­ma­rize those themes and see how they res­onate with you as a vision for you.

You have given your­self a won­der­ful gift by doing this process. Now the next gift is to allow your­self to believe in your vision and trust that it will come to you dur­ing this year. It may not come exactly as you have writ­ten. Remem­ber to stay open to pos­si­bil­i­ties and when you feel beau­ti­ful, love, romance or some­thing sex­ual, know that it’s all part of this jour­ney that you are now begin­ning. Enjoy the journey!
