April 13th Energy Update: The energetics are getting heavy again and we are slowing down, again, feeling as if plodding in thick mud. Why this time? Venus Goddess of love, values, finances, beauty, creativity, relationships is getting ready to turn Direct after being in retrograde for a few weeks. We have felt the effects of this retrograde period strongly as we have gotten clear on what and who we value and love and even started making adjustments accordingly. Now Venus is ready to turn direct and what that means is she is slowing down in the sky and we feel that slow down in our lives. (Keep in mind that planets are not actually slowing down or running backwards, it just appears that way from our vantage point on earth.)
Today as Venus slows she is also in deep conversation with Chiron which has been ongoing during this retro phase and moves into an extensive conversation today. Chiron is dubbed the wounded healer and helps us face old hurts and wounds in order to take away their power in our lives and instigate healing. Chiron also boosts our own healing abilities naturally and through nudges to learn, grow, experience, take courses etc…
So Venus is pulling out all of the stops before she turns direct on the 15th to ensure that she has done her bid of helping us know what we love and value and make sure we are on the path to supporting those loves and desires.
Along with the heaviness of the energy you may find yourself a bit lethargic. You may also find yourself armed with the truth of who and what you love and value and Now the next step is to take action. That might mean releasing someone from your life whether it is a love, friend, co-worker, service provider, client etc… I know that is not always easy but you are seeing clearly that this person doesn’t line up with what you want to create and Live in your life. The choice is yours continue on with more of the same or make a change. Some people will struggle with that action and others will say thank goodness for the clarity, let’s do it.
We are also on the cusp of Easter Weekend a time when many people around the world celebrate the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. There tends to be a somberness in the collective air at this time of the year before the rejoicing of Easter Sunday and Monday. That somberness may also e contributing to the heaviness. It is a collective energy. Choose not to engage.
