Awaken your inner Shaman. Venus direct and Chiron in Pisces,15/16th April.
As Venus now stations direct on the 15th April, after a six week retrograde period, we have revisited the wounds of the past so that we can forgive, release, heal and let them go. Now as Venus conjoins Chiron deep healing is available to us.
A unique and rare chance, as Venus stationing direct together with Chiron after a retrograde period is a once in a life time event.
Venus in Pisces exactly conjoins Chiron the wounded healer on the 16th of April at 26 degrees Pisces and makes a tense square to Saturn in Sagittarius.
Activating the inner Shaman/wounded healer in us all, the part of you that connects directly to the true source of the universe. Who teaches us how to stop living from the ego, and start loving your true, authentic self. Who, intuitively knows where our mind, body and spirit needs healing and which path to take, that will take us to the next evolutionary level of our development. Helping us to reclaim our lost power to heal, see the truth, and fulfill our purpose in life.
We can tap into the place within, now, the greater, wiser self, that knows no fears, worries, but is infinite and boundless.
The energies of Venus, Chiron in Pisces and Neptune the ruler of Pisces in his own sign, are flowing strongly now. The Neptune/Pisces energies flow like water, fog or an ethereal cloud. The nature of this astrological influence is mystical, spiritual, magical, sensitive, idealistic, compassionate, visionary, psychic, imaginative, creative. Neptune awakens the part of us that yearns for our spiritual home. We all have that inner connection to Spirit within us. When something happens in our life to open our hearts and fill us with love and compassion for others, as well as ourselves, we are dipping into the waters of Neptune at the highest level.
“If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete.”― Jack Kornfield
It’s a time of surrender, faith and trusting the process of going with the Neptune flow, while taking the path of least resistance. Understanding that the universe ultimately has a higher plan, even if its not immediately apparent.
The moment you learn to surrender and let go, while keeping your heart open, is the second you start to feel more in tune with who you are.
“What happens when people open their hearts?”
“They get better.”
― Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood
Chiron the wounded healer makes the pain felt, so that we can release and heal the many blinds spots and self-sabotaging behaviour, that have been so deeply buried within our subconscious mind and hearts and have been blocking our path to true intimacy and happy healthy relationships with ourselves and others.
We may find ourselves revising themes around love or pain, that occurred in the last week of January as Venus made the same aspect to Chiron and Saturn. Only this time we come from a better place of understanding, more self love and inner strength as Venus took with her the lessons learned during her retrograde through Venus and Mars in Taurus makes a positive and supporting aspect.
Saturn asks us to accept the reality of now. He gives us a reality check and wants us to be honest with ourselves and take responsibility for our pain and turn the pain into love. To end all suffering in our lives.
Love harder than any pain you have ever felt.
The evolutionary intent of Pisces is to recognize that we are all one, and therefore, that lack-of-boundary trait can produce the highest kind of spiritual oneness of which we are capable. Yet at the same time we need to practice the art of setting healthy boundaries and while our sensitivity and empathy is high, we need to be aware of not subconsciously soaking in negative energies like a sponge, which can lead to feelings of being overwhelmed and practice and visualise healthy psychic shielding and emotional detox through relaxation, meditation, etc.
The connection to our higher selves and unconditional cosmic love, the knowledge that we are never alone and that separation is an illusion, is the message of Venus in Pisces.
The all encompassing and unconditional love that Pisces teaches us, dwells within us all and is our Secret Super Power.
We must begin with self-love first, only then can we loose the self-sabotaging habits that stand between ourselves and love, such as fear of abandonment, fear we are not good enough and powerlessness that often result in self- defensive behaviour that in turn often results in turning our deep rooted fears into a self- fulfilling prophecy.
During the next two weeks, we can integrate the lessons and healing, before Venus enters Aries and passes beyond the tense square to Saturn at the end of April. And as Mars enters the lighter air sign of Gemini, we will feel light and positive, having released any heavy load that may have been weighing us down.
We can break through this painful circle by loving our selves so much more than any pain or fear we have ever felt.
Believe in your Super Power of Love and healing. There is no time to wait, we can start today, right here, right now.
