When we give away our power, we come from the position of, oh I hope they like me, or, what can I do to get them to like me. When we hold onto our power and OWN our power, we come from the position of, prove to me that you are worthy of ME, or, let me see if I like THEM.
Now I bring these up because we are learning a brand new way of loving others. And over the next year as this energy plays out, you will either be starting a new (very satisfying) relationship, ending a mismatched relationship, or deepening the bonds of an existing (very satisfying) relationship. And if you have been single for a while, then you are someone who is about to begin anew. And if you have been in relationships, one after the other recently, then you can expect to be separating and going on your own path for a spell before you find your next truly matched partner. If you are in a relationship and still find your partner funny and fascinating, then you can expect to go deeper with the roots and even more securely grounded within the partnership. This is magic partnership time.
And the power comes in especially for the ones just beginning a relationship in these times of new high vibrating love. I haven't finished the Jaguar Woman yet, but one thing that I loved that resonates with these times, is that we are all learning, both males and females, about the divine feminine, the highest vibrating form of feminine energy. And if you are a female, the male that is attracted to you, will be looking to learn from YOU. And if you haven't taken the time to discover and own your power, through much inner work and honest examination and acceptance of the dark and light sides within, then essentially he will end up "destroying" you. Basically this just means, he is looking for the Goddess, that you do have the potential to be, but if you are just giving away your power and attempting to be only what you think will please him and get his approval, then over time the truth will come out that that was all a prop and the relationship will fade away, and hearts will be broken. But if you come into the relationship with your power intact, such as from the stance of, show ME that you are worthy of me and let me the female see if I even really like who you are all about, then the dynamic changes and the foundation for a potential divine partnership begins. The one common denominator that I have seen in successful long term partnerships is a very strong independent woman. There of course is time for the clinginess and I love you baby, but, the core of these women is that they can stand alone and stand their ground.
Now holding onto your power is something you will be doing in your everyday world interactions. This is also when you come around others that are doing what you wish to be doing or that have what you wish to have, and when you feel things like jealously. When you are jealous of another you are giving away your power. When you belittle yourself by thinking they have it more together than you, then you are giving away your power. When you are jealous of someone elses gifts, then you are giving away your power. When you feel insecure, you are giving away your power. When you mean to say NO, but you say YES, to please someone else, you are giving away your power. See what I mean.
I had an empowering moment the other morning when I went to spin class with my friend and it was a place we haven't been to in over a year, and ended up in a class with a new instructor neither one of us knew. The man was pretty cocky, to put it mildly, but you know, each his own. So at one point in the middle of a song he just jumps off the bike and comes straight up to us, in the back row far corner, as we tried to hide out. "I'm Jerry!" is how it started and he reaches for my friends hand to shake an introduction. Then he gets to me and I just smile. I didn't extend my hand and I didn't say my name. He gave a bit of an exasperated throwing his hands up expression and walked off. I was like, dude, I'm busy. Please leave a message. Me and my friend just looked at each other like, what?! and laughed. But then it made me feel really good and powerful because without flinching I didn't cave. I was busy. I am in the middle of working out and I don't want my sweaty hand to touch your sweaty hand and then I touch my face and get grossed out. Boundaries! THAT is a perfect example of holding your power. When you keep your power, you don't just do what everyone else expects of you to do.
So is holding on to your power another way of saying, being a bitch? Maybe. Or at least that is how others see it, because we females are so conditioned to just make everyone happy and do as we are told. Making everyone happy translates to giving away our power. I had an ex boyfriend recently say what a bitch I was now. I was like, no I have always been a bitch, but in past partnerships I did tend to be rather subservient and very much a pleaser and like begging to just be loved. Yes, yes, baby, anything for you! So now all those ex's after years of failed relationships come looking for me thinking they can have that good life back. And what do they find... a bitch with a strong opinion who says it like it is and isn't afraid at all to say no, unacceptable, not gonna happen. So if holding onto your power means that you are a bitch, then I better start capitalizing Bitch, because it is the greatest honorable path to walk. Holding onto your power is keeping it real and being true to YOU.
So what is the message of the Transit of Venus? It is the call to own your power, to accept your powerful influence on the world, to not shy away from living your truth, to be all you can be, to love every morsel of your body, to accept every perfect piece of your personality, to be YOU as the fullest expression of honesty and vulnerability, to live as Goddess or God, and of course, to do it all with Love as the base coat.
Please read your Sun and Moon and Rising signs if you want to read this next section because we are multidimensional and not at all single faceted...
You are letting go of some things you called the TRUTH and seeing that they are not even close to what you thought they were. We do change on this path of conscious awakening, and as we change, our truths change. Yours are changing at this time and they will be facilitated through your own ponderings into the mysteries of life. Neptune will be birthing out of you the potential to be a great healer or spiritual being. The more time you can spend in solitude and quietude, the easier the messages and visions and insights and beyond your wildest dreams findings, will be able to access your consciousness. You are electrifying your being...
You are letting go of some old ways of seeing things as mine or yours. There may be a new way of meeting in the middle with others and establishing a new high vibrating sort of ours. Maybe it is that you are learning how much fun it is to share. There are some deep seated patterns you have been walking in life that you will see are just no longer working towards the ultimate desire of your long term sustainable happiness. You will see through the short term satisfaction and want to let it go completely to find something that makes you happy over time and for the long run. Your energy is focused on your creative arts and the magical piece will come from either working with friends or a group or by doing something that is for the greater good of our Earth and its life forms.
You are letting go of some relationship dynamics that just don't match who you are now. It's kind of like how we grow and look back at old partners and can't imagine how we were even attracted to them. We grow and change and if we don't do this on the same vibration with the other, then we need to separate. It is not a bad thing to separate. It is only bad to stay together out of obligation and to deny that we just don't match any longer. If it doesn't fit, you have to let it go. You may love those jeans from 15 years ago, but if they don't fit, you have to let them go ... or just look like a stubborn fool. Neptune is going to be sending you visions and bread crumbs leading you to a more artistic sort of career move. Keep your eyes and heart open to all that comes your way. This will be a several month sort of story unfolding, but the bread crumbs are already revealing themselves to you. Your job is just to follow and do what feels most natural. If it feels bad, get out. If it feels good, go up to meet it.
You are letting go of old work environments that do not feed your soul. There is a part of you that doesn't even want to leave your shell at this time and if you are in an oppressive job environment then you will feel even more dread about leaving the house. This is a time that is calling you to use the power of your expanded mind to bring in all that you dream possible. Neptune will be sending you visions and planting signs along the way to help you get to this more satisfying place. By the end of this month there will be more focus and movement coming from the home front, so just utilize this time to dream what this movement will feel like. Venus is working behind the scenes for you and pulling strings and making things happen, but you have to wait until the end of the month to see what the Love Planet has in store for you. Be excited because it will be and feel very delightful.
You are letting go of old outdated ways for expressing your creativity. You are coming up with new ideas that others haven't even considered or thought possible. You also have the opportunity to learn to love in a whole new way. The way you have been doing it is only leading to the same end result and at some point you will figure out that you have had enough of that end result. Friendship comes into play in this equation, so maybe even the friends first can help you establish the love relationship that you dream of having. If you are single right now, focus on your creative arts first and let the love blossom out of that. Your whole energy will change from the inside out when you are doing your art. Also Neptune is doing some housecleaning in your psyche. The root of many unhealthy psychological habits will be coming to your attention and you would be wise to see them and accept them because in clearing them, you will have a better chance at manifesting a true long term love partnership. And you do deserve to be loved in the most high vibrating, mutually honoring sort of way.
You are letting go of some things from the past that are holding you back like an anchor keeping you down and keeping you from where you really want to be. There is confusion with others in your life and the tools will be coming your way which will help you do a sort of extermination. You need to weed these old people or outdated dreams out of your life in order to focus on your career and where it wants to take you. It may just be that the soil around you is tainted and you need to pull the plant out and put it in a more energizing, abundant and alive sort of soil. What? You need to get nutrition to your roots in order for you to experience the growth that is your potential. It's like living in a house with drug addicts, when you want to go to school and make something out of your life. If you move out and live alone or with others on the same path as you, then you will have a greater chance at success.
You are letting go of some old ways of communicating that didn't really get you the end result you wanted. It's kind of like how we are upset over something and we go to confront the other person because we are hurt, but then the words come out wrong, with the emphasis on the wrong words and things end up worse than they were. Well, it doesn't have to be that way any more. Through you being honest and vulnerable, and listening in a more heart centered way, you will be able to use the right words that will open them up to hearing what point you are trying to make.
You are letting go of outdated value systems that will be making the space for more creativity to come into your life. You may also be transforming your ideas about money and if you can shift into a state of Love for money, instead of fear, as most people live, then you can manifest mass loads of it flowing in at this time. See money as a sacred being and honor and trust that it will always be something that is in abundance in your life. Learn to transform your thoughts when it runs dry into trust that no matter if you have a lot or a little, it is still always magnetizing to you. Think of money like water out of a faucet and when you need it, it will come out for you. BE in that trustful state ALWAYS. And IF you can let go of your old ways of fear with money and worrying about there being enough, then you can open to a creative channel that will involve you using your hands that will bring you the ultimate happiness and joyful feelings. Let go of the fear with money, and your creative juices and creative outpourings will put you on the map.
You are letting go of some old outdated ways of seeing yourself and are actually birthing a new You. You will be becoming more confident and self assured and a true power holder in this game of life. Opportunities will come for you to hold your power and state your case with others. Before, friction may have been created when you tried to stand your ground, but now you will be able to do so in a way that will make them all back down and see your point of view as very valid and justified. Career and home are affected by these truthful interactions you will be playing a part in, but all are for the purpose of you showing that you can hold onto your power. Just know going into them all that the end result will be always to your advantage. And through each one you will be gaining in confidence that speaking your truth can create harmony and a better understanding between all parties.
You are letting go of a lot of noise and clatter at this time and seeing that alone time and quietude is what your soul is yearning for. You may find that Earthly ole You is experiencing more mind expanding ideas, and now more than ever, you are really opening to them and comprehending things that before you would have scoffed at. If you are open to it, you will be able to receive insights and understandings from Spirit that you will later be able to share with others through some art form. Neptune will be reminding you of creative dreams that you may have let fall to the wayside, and she will also be inspiring you to connect back with them and give it a go now, which will be a much better time than before. Once Saturn goes direct at the end of this month you will really start to see some of your creative career dreams taking off. Keep your eyes open for connections through people that will take place in your immediate environment. You don't have to look far for these opportunities as they will come from people close by.
You are letting go of old friendships and people who just don't make you feel like the super star you are. You will come to realize that keeping these people close to you, out of obligation or just expectations that it is what you do, is actually keeping true joy just out of reach. It is better to have one friend who truly has your back, then 30 who you just really don't feel like you can trust. It is quality, not quantity when it comes to friendships and associations. And believe it or not, you realizing this and making the changes to only surround yourself with TRUE loving beings will open doors to you blossoming in a creative environment that you could not discover if you continued to surround yourself with these others. Don't look back with regret for the moves you are making at this time. It IS what you are suppose to be letting go of and it WILL be making the space for something that will make you feel very happy and content and free and like newly in love feeling.
You are letting go of old ways of running your business and career and through the power of Neptune you will be filled with brilliant money making ideas that will TRULY take off. Follow the bread crumbs and be clear on all that you will be needing to make your dreams reality, because once you get clear, they will manifest for you. Your home life is becoming more important to you and at this time you have great potential to create a space to shift your source of income into a direct connection from your home base. All ideas that come to you at this time should be seriously followed. If it feels like a path you have been on for so long is coming to a fork in the road, you are right on schedule. Things are changing, but you don't have to make any decisions until you get to the fork, but trust me, there will be a sign that guides you smoothly and effortlessly into this new arena that will feel like a dream come true. You have no reason to worry and every reason to feel stoked with anticipation and gratitude.
FOR REALS!! This energy right now should so make you want to get out there and strut!!!! Love it.
