I woke up this morning feeling very sexy and pretty. I did my usual morning workout and I was fascinated by my own body. I enjoyed the shape of my legs, the curve of my butt, and the look in my eyes. I woke up this morning with a heightened awareness of pleasure. My bed felt good, my feet felt good on the wood floor. My smoothie was delicious and when I was snacking on almonds, walnuts and mulberries, I was overwhelmed by their flavor. Yum. Even watering my plants was a super-sensual experience. The smell of mint, basil, lavender, cilantro and even my pansies were enticing.
Look, I always take great pleasure in the small things in my life. What I have, I appreciate with deep sincerity. But this morning, my sensuality and appreciation were off the charts. As I sat down to do my astrology research, I realized that Venus, planet of sexy, beautiful, juicy sensuality, had just moved into Taurus, the earthy sign of material resources. As a mystic, I consider my life to be a canvas on which I get to paint everything that I desire. My whole life is art and from the time I awake in the morning until the time I go to bed at night, there is a strong connection to creative, Life Force Energy. With Venus’ move into Taurus, I felt all that beauty and love flood my material world and flood my being. I am TURNED ON by life all the time, but now, I feel more vibrant, grounded, focused, capable and REAL. This is what Venus in Taurus does for us all.
I want you to pay close attention to yourself right now, my friend. Take note of how Venus in Taurus is affecting you and take advantage of it. Look around and see the beauty that is YOU… your countenance, your body-temple, your voice, your movement. You’re a gift from God/Goddess. Unwrap your package and revel in it. Some folks say that Venus has us see through rose-colored glasses. GOOD! Enjoy it while you have it. Too often we are looking through glasses that are smudged, scratched and tarnished by self-criticism and for some, self-loathing. Venus in Taurus is auspicious and powerful and with us for almost 30 days. Use it wisely. Use it fully to expand and thrive your inner and outer worlds. This focus on yourself as an object of love and sensuality is going to help you in your relationships for sure! Okay, I am not convinced that Venus is all about deep, meaningful intimate relationships. Personally, I see Venus more as a force of love and creativity, and it is up to us as individuals to deepen our connections with people to the level of intimacy and commitment. The goddess Venus had many, many lovers and perhaps some were throw-aways. We don’t see lots of instances of her being committed and wed to one lover, but really enjoying the pleasure of many. However, we simply MUST bestow intimacy, commitment and unconditional love on ourselves. This is our great work while here on Earth. Love ourselves profoundly and extend that profound love out into the world. This is a Law of Attraction Universe, so the world will respond in kind.
In addition to beauty and love, Venus and Taurus are all about MONEY, WEALTH and PROFIT. How is your bank account doing? Are you thriving like you want to be? Are you EXCITED about money and your income? No matter what your answer to these questions, I want to encourage you to expand your understanding of wealth and thrive. True wealth comes from a profound knowing of your connection to abundance and abundance is a mindset. If you have $5, the lack mentality thinks, I may not get another $5 and so it builds a set of actions and beliefs based on the probability that there will not be more. The abundance mentality knows that there’s plenty more and so it builds a set of actions and perpetuates beliefs based on the KNOWING that there is plenty. Part of the abundance mindset is sharing. I want you to appreciate what you have, and to take it further by giving and sharing. Venus in Taurus is a good time to look at how you can turn your good fortune back onto the world. Venus will be in the sign of Taurus until July 4th. That gives you almost 30 days to really expand and strengthen your financial base and the financial base of the organizations and groups that are helping others (including Mother Earth) thrive. Show the Universe that you are abundant by sharing and helping others expand. And oooooh! If you have a business or are thinking about starting one or even launching a new project, now is the time to do it. YES!
Of course, whether you are feeling financially sound or not, Venus in Taurus is a great time to prospect financially. You could ask for a raise, explore other ways to increase your income, investigate ways to increase your savings, examine your investments for weaknesses, trim your budget of excess fat (Venus is NOT practical because Goddesses do not have to be, but Taurus is! Venus is going to make you want to spend money and acquire beautiful things. Taurus can help you make a budget that is reasonable, effective and FUN) and make some BIG plans for the future. Spend this time thinking about what you want to manifest for yourself. Write some goals, make a vision board, write your objectives, write a plan to manifest all this and then LET IT GO—LET GOD/GODDESS.
Venus in Taurus is your opportunity to focus on thriving in the material world. You are ripe and ready for it, Baby! If you’ve been following my blog, you will recall that the Sun and New Moon were in Taurus last month in April and May, and you will have taken that opportunity to really think profoundly about what excites you and makes your heart sing. I encouraged you to dream big and to do Shadow Work to work through any fears that you may have around being a powerful manifestor. Well, with Venus again in Taurus, now is a great time to reinforce that on which you’ve already been working. Re-commit yourself to following your heart by recommitting to your desires. I share these articles so that you can use the planets to help guide your months. You can get my astrology posts delivered right to your inbox by joining my Astrology and Moon Phase list.
If you’ve not been following my blog and you’ve not been giving a lot of attention to your heart’s desires and you’ve not been thinking about what you want to manifest, don’t despair! Venus in Taurus is a Goddess-send for all of us! It’s never too late to listen to your heart and focus on your dreams. START NOW. My favorite quote is,
“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favour all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. BEGIN IT NOW.” ~William Hutchison Murray
Hey, too many of us have a whole slew of limiting beliefs in our heads and it’s these beliefs that are holding us back from thriving. I don’t care where you’ve come from or what you’ve done in your past. You are the Divine Child of Divine Parents who ADORE you. You always have been. You always will be. You’ve come down to this lovely planet called Earth to have a human experience—and overcoming the perceived limitations you hold is a part of that experience. You can thrive NOW. Changing those limiting beliefs is the key. Especially those subconscious, quiet and fucked-up beliefs that are the silent Ninja dream-killers. Do you know what I’m talking about? Those beliefs that tell you at your core, “I’ll never have enough. I’m not good enough. I haven’t earned it. I am a failure.” I’m not saying that you don’t have to work hard, but I am saying that most of us have some fucked-up beliefs that have nothing to do with our work ethic, but rather are a statement about us being unworthy of power and success. Sadly, many of us do not recognize the AUTHORITY we have in our own lives. Half of my readers cringe when they read the word authority, thinking about their mean parents, parish priests and the po-po (the police.) These folks have negative judgments about the authorities and beliefs, both conscious and unconscious, that say, “Authority is bad.”
Venus in Taurus is VERY much about being the true author of your material world and thus the true Authority. The great news about this powerful aspect is that as much opportunity as it gives you for looking at the Light, listening to your heart and manifesting your desires, it gives you every opportunity to look at your Shadow, investigate your limitations and challenge your negative beliefs. So where you feel weak or disempowered, do your Shadow Work and make yourself aligned with your Divinity. If you don’t know how to do Shadow Work, I seriously suggest you book in a series of sessions and let me show you how to do it. Shadow Work is key to understanding what is lurking in the dark, murky parts of your mind. Your limiting beliefs and self-sabotaging feelings will be revealed in Shadow Work. Book in a complimentary Discovery Session with me so that we can discuss your needs and I’ll tell you what solutions that I can offer to help you.
