Venus retrograde, Libra Full Moon, Taurus New Moon, plus all the other RX planets spinning around out there in our cosmic neighborhood. Holy SHIFT! With the powerful and juicy goddess of love being my ascendant, the last couple of weeks have been uber intense! Lots happening, and continue to happen, in my world! So many #feels right now.
And the feels just keep coming. I realized something during this super potent Venusian activation period: for a significant part of my adult life, I have been functioning from the head (Aries) & not from my body (Taurus). This has lead to me living from a place of complete nonalignment to who I am & how I function optimally. Like a fish out of water or, for better analogy, a woman out of her body. Having ignored the strength in my senses, looking back over the past few years, I can see where this has caused me to make decisions based on factors that were in opposition to my creativity, sensuality, & bliss.
I decided 2017 was going to be my year of living more fully embodied, of living from a place of potent connectivity to the parts of myself that really help me flourish and thrive. All I can say is WOW. I have been presented with so many opportunities to choose living from this place of embodiment over & over again; situations in which I can continue to live from my head or thrive from being connected to my womb, my heart, my intuition.
But, of course, it isn't always easy to break the habits, the patterns, the samskaras. Sometimes you get lost in the chaos, the seemingly erratic and unorganized aspects of living. Other times instead of trembling in the wake of turmoil, we sit calm, centered as the eye of the storm. In #alchemy there is an underlying belief that there must be chaos in order for there to be a need for a continuation of #TheGreatWork. In other words, if everything is la-dee-da and put in its place, then why do we need to work towards #transmutation and #metamorphosis? You see, the #magick is in the chaos and there is no other energy more magickally potent than the in-betweens, the stillness in the chaos, the transition from there to here.
