Be as Deer Be Loving~Kindness
I took my own advice, heeded my Sky Oracle suggestions about this Venus Retrograde period from October 8 through November 18 (see post below) and opted for re-lease and re-newal in my favorite hot spring last week. Ah, the holy Boiling River in Yellowstone National Park where hot new information pours forth from the Earth’s core at Mammoth Hot Springs in glistening clarity and mingles with the chilled river water dancing down from the Yellowstone high country creating a rich liquid full of all sorts of animal sign and story, energy and blessing from the wild ones. In this hot and cold cauldron of cleansing, every muscle memory is pounded and jostled, shaken and released and I always feel a re-awakening of all my energetic fields…..feeling cathartic joy under an October cornflower sky.
Driving home, more peace-filled now from the moving chaos of water, I would rest in various locations, just to listen. What is shockingly present this autumn is a vast liquid silence emanating from the land, perhaps louder and more palpable than ever before. What is this unheard sound so vibrant and immanent like audible light? What underlies this calm depth, so different than what I heard last year at this time?
I began to wonder, maybe our lack of noise as a human species is part of what I am sensing, is a contributing reason for this quiet that is covering, hovering the Earth. Maybe as a result of the simplifying and paring down of the past two years, we have grown into a less frenetic species, a calmer humanity of stillness, appreciation, reverence. Do you think that might be possible? We are a huge collective force on this planet no doubt. Released from our addictions to speed and too many choices, have we begun to be a race capable now of more conscious, deliberate actions?
As this great emptying has occurred and reshaped all our lives in some ways big and small, now might be a time to pause and to become more conscious than you ever have before about what seeds you want to plant into your personal planetary Fields.
First though, feel into the silence and see what messages that Field holds for you.
I sense many of the old ideas/stories overlaying our globe have dissolved. The templates of terror that have been reality’s glue to some have shifted because of all our individual efforts to break free. You have perhaps lived through your deepest fears and come out alive, so fear no longer holds sway over you the way it did in the past. I sense much fear (in Jin Shin Jyutsu we say FalseEvidenceAppearingReal) has left our collective Field (everything is energy/imagination before it solidifies into dense matter/forms). Why would we ever bring it back?
Chances are you have discovered untapped talents, reservoirs of courage and stamina in these past months and a greater belief in your power to create the world of your making and joy. Everyone, no matter their life’s circumstance, has seen some kind of diminishment of their perceived outer power…so we are all more vulnerable now….yet an equally matched strengthening of their internal power, something to be valued, trusted and followed.
So now that the Field is cleared, what do you want to plant?
We are entering the turning point in this Venus retrograde cycle on October 28-29, bringing to completion the last cycle that began in March of 2009. As Venus moves from evening star to morning star, it is time to plant new intentions of all things Venusian: love, doing what you love, loving who you love, creating a life based in love, loving larger than you did before.
This moment is like a Winter Solstice come early. Take this moment for quiet reflection, breathe deep and hear the unique messages pouring forth from within you which will be the truest guidance for action after November 18 when both Jupiter (expansion, abundance, joy) and Venus (being/doing what you love) move us forward.
