“Effort is the unconstrained willingness to persevere through difficulty.” Sharon Salzberg
This tangled mess
and the effort in gaining equanimity.
As if Halloween came early this year.
Don’t shut down to love.
Don’t abandon yourself
to the addictions of escapism and denial.
Through complexity to wholeness,
dance in the labyrinth to heal,
to reveal your inner universe.
Allow your heart to be your compass
and mindful communication to be your ally
in the unknown territory ahead.
Venus retrograde in Scorpio
October 5, 2018 News Headline:
Swedish girl, 8 years old Saga (yes, that is her name!) pulls out pre-Viking era sword from lake. “She picked up the object, lifted it high above her head, and shouted…” her father said. She “stumbled upon something special in the muddy clay”.
(Further more: this happened in July, within days of of the new nomination to the United States Supreme Court. The news was released on the day of Venus retrograde and Kavanaugh’s confirmation.)
Mythic reality is alive now. Girls and women are drawing up powerful resources from deep, ancient waters. Yes, Venus Scorpio retrograde. We’re going deeper. What has been suppressed, rises up. Power, hidden motives, the undercurrents of relationships. Values and desire are up for reconsideration. Venus retrograde brings us to question worth and core values. We have the opportunity to build and empower integrity and justice when we consciously align desire and intention.
