VENUS: THE ROSE OF PERFECTION

Each person is a demonstration of God’s love
and beauty in the world.

IMG_5076

The fragrant rose is a flower of Venus. If we imagine the various meanings of Venus as petals of a rose, with each petal enhancing and blending seamlessly into the next one, we can sense the kindly, gentle vibration of this peace-loving planet.1 Venus symbolizes our fundamental value system in terms of what we generally hold most dear. Thus, this first petal relates principally to how we value our self as an individual. This crucial sense of inner worth (or the lack of it) is anchored within the initial embrace of our family, which ideally treated us as a lovable, beautiful person. From this psychologically encouraging beginning, we have a firm foundation for building a life of meaning and significance. Venus mirrors outwardly, in so many ways, our perception of our internal worthiness and thus the degree of inner harmony we feel and radiate forth.

Moving to the next petal, Venus signifies the quest for and potential to attain harmony and balance within our self and our life. As the epitome of symmetry and poise, the Fourth Ray, that of Venus, represents harmony gained through conflict. Her central aim is always the on-going process of peace and equanimity, both inwardly and outwardly. Each time we resolve an internal, niggling discord we are more able to interact in ways that are gracious, cooperative, diplomatic, and unifying. We create fulfilling relationships based on mutual agreement and compromise, which take into account the feelings and needs of all involved.

In yet another petal, we experience the feminine energy of Venus that leads us softly to our heart and opens the feeling side of our being. The Taoist tradition describes the feminine as yin—the energy of allowing. Our emotional heartbeat is a touchstone of Venus, for she is the round-edged planet of love, desire, pleasure, and sociability. She is emblematic of true femininity, and, together with the Moon, represents the qualities we associate with the anima (soul) or sensual feminine. The Moon is a more mature, security-oriented, motherly aspect of the feminine, while Venus tends to be youthful, flirtatious, and ardent in her passions.

120px-Venus_symbol.svg

Tenderness, nurturing, sharing, compassion, grace, and sensitivity are the positive expressions of woman, which also includes the feminine part of the male’s psyche. Her glyph is the circle of spiritual awareness placed above the cross of matter—the universal symbol for the female, which also depicts the legendary mirror of Venus. Being a Yin planet—one representing the negative or passive polarity—Venus is a receptive, often subtle influence that ideally expresses her power in tactful, persuasive ways rather than through a potent, harsh, or contentious demeanor.

As with all duality, Venus has her dark, self-indulgent side with its unattractive qualities. This contrast in the different faces of Venus demonstrates the Eternal law: as first within, so without. Hence, how we express our Venus energy inevitably draws to us exactly what we are: peace within, peace without; self-centered within, self-centered without. A classic example is Islam, a Venus-ruled religion and a word that means “peace,” but what face of Islam is predominantly seen or heard about in today’s press?

Another petal of the rose epitomizes Venus as the cosmic principle of attraction and the expression of beauty in all its myriad forms. From mythology, we know that Venus was the embodiment of beauty, so wherever she walked flowers grew. As the outer world simply responded to the internal beauty of Venus through the spontaneous blooming of flowers, our inner beauty is likewise naturally exuded in all we fashion outwardly in our lives. Were we to live the highest essence of Venus, flowers might also bloom at our feet!

Well known as the morning or evening star, Venus is the loveliest, most luminous sparkle in the sky after the Sun and Moon (our Celestial Parents). Phosphoros, Greek for “light bearer,” was an early name for Venus, and in flawless style her orbital path between the Earth and the Sun is an almost perfect circle! Pythagoras illuminated an ancient, mystical connection between Venus and the Sun (our spiritual heart wherein burns the inner flame) when he called her the sol alter, meaning the “other Sun,” due to her radiant glow. No wonder she is the archetypal goddess who inspires our aesthetic ideals and the planetary vibration that magnetizes to us all that is eternally lovely and refined in thought, form, touch, fragrance, color, and sound.

604px-Venus_geocentric_orbit_curve_simplified_(pentagram).svg

Venus is associated with the mind in the heart and the higher mental and celestial planes, thus with all we create by the steady control of our thoughts. As the key to spiritual unfoldment, the heart chakra is closely linked with Venus (and to the Air signs), along with her symbols of the six-pointed Star and rose blooming within the heart. The geometric pattern formed from Venus’ cycle in relationship to the Earth, as seen from the Earth, is a five-petaled rose. Every eight years, when Venus shows the same face to the Earth, the pair “kiss” and another petal is formed. These stunningly symmetrical patterns of the Venusian “dance” actually form both a heart and a rose!

Although the individual petals of the Venusian rose illustrate her various domains, each sphere of influence merges one with another. Softening the edges of life, Venus works through synthesis. For this reason, self-worth is deeply wedded to an inner sense of harmony that results in personal charisma and the desire for relationships. Love, as the feeling language of the heart, is both the greatest unifier and inspiration behind all forms of creativity, whether it is in the joy of gardening, composing music, designing jewelry, or setting an elegant table.

In her most blessed form, Venus represents the awakened spiritual soul. Her kindhearted vibrations manifest at their purest when in Pisces, the sign in which Venus is exalted. In the watery Piscean realm, Venus exemplifies the soul who has transformed feelings of selfishness into selflessness, who expresses love not from the personal level but from the universal. As the goddess of the gentle way, one of her sacred animals is the white dove of peace, a bird that is symbolic of the all-encompassing, omnipresent love of God. When we allow ourselves to be enfolded within the spiritual rose of Venus, we are blessed with a peace and beauty that surpasses worldly understanding and thereby helps not only to quicken the vibratory rate on Earth but also to elevate, ever so slightly, the consciousness of humanity.

TWO GODS OFFER LIBERATION

Internal freedom heralds external freedom.

Collectively, since 2011, we have been in the midst of an unusually powerful and liberating Cosmic pattern that signals the culmination of the old cycle and the invitation to walk new terrain with courage and vision. Two planetary giants—Uranus, the rule-breaking God of radical shifts, and Pluto, the God that instigates endings and reconstruction—are center stage in the ring.

Much of the outer world has been shaken to its very core in way one or another, on one level or another, and will continue to be so over the next few years, though likely to a lesser degree, as these potent energies disperse, their work accomplished for now. Many of our lives have also been rattled in one way(s) or another, inwardly and outwardly, and thus significantly disrupted. Resistance proved to be futile and would have only heightened the amount of suffering. What was meant to move on, moved on. New meaning and trajectories have come to the fore.

Moreover, many of us have had—and are having—intense personal encounters with the “the dark night of the soul.” In the past few weeks, two friends have lost a sibling, a cousin was suddenly presented with unexpected divorce papers, a shocking surprise; another friend with two young children is facing a hostile divorce from her partner; and another single friend, whose baby is due in mid May, lost her steady job. The lives of many individuals remain in significant flux, change, and uncertainty—the previous chapter of life has closed and the first words of the next chapter are still somewhat vague. As challenging as it has been, the way is being cleared for new ground, new vistas, renewed life, greater consciousness.

In the sky today, the seventh and final square-off of Uranus and Pluto culminates. This last exact encounter provides a welcome moment to consider how much we have undergone in terms of major movements toward relinquishment, the embrace of life-shifting changes that have already occurred over the past few years (and ones yet to occur), of rebirth, and the transformation of the landscape of our lives. I have frequently heard the refrain, “life feels very different now!” and/or “time feels very different to me!”

Regardless of the outer appearance of continued chaos, humanity has arrived at an exhilarating juncture in its larger cycle. What is gone is gone. Beautiful, empty space is available for us to shape according to the creative choices we now make with aliveness and authentic expression. Eckhart Tolle, in a recent talk, confirms that a definite “shift in consciousness is transpiring.” He suggests that the nightly news is not the greatest news, but rather the “evolutionary leap humanity is now taking,” which is occurring underneath many people’s radar. Further, as the metamorphosis continues, Eckhart attests there is the “arising of a different human species.” Uranus and Pluto have been our loyal partners in this accelerating Divine Evolution. Thank you, Great Spirit, for the Plan unfolding in perfect timing!

As reincarnating souls who were given free will and free choice, let us realize the immense privilege and honor we chose “to be here now” in a physical body so that we can be full participants in this worldwide awakening. At this pivotal time, the contributions of spirit we each make—today and every moment forward—add up to that continuing enlightenment of individual and Global Consciousness. Shall we walk the Higher Path as “One Body,” hand in hand, heart to heart, all of the same illumined Spirit?

We are entering a new life—a new way
of thinking, a new way of acting,
a complete turnabout. We are walking
on virgin soil which has never been
trod on this Earth. We are pioneers of
the soul, leading humanity back to God.
Hilda Charlton, spiritual master

THE CAPE OF LOVE

442px-Andrea_Mantegna_108

The Cape of Love is a different kind of mantle. Its quality and color are of a subtle essence that is unique to each individual. Its spiritual vibrancy is life enhancing, yet it is also a cloak of calmness.

Some people can see it enveloping another. A few can discern its constant presence around them. Most cannot, even though the beautiful energy of it is universally available—now—as a tender covering to smooth our way.

This radiant Cape turns into a living reality as we become receptive to and allow ourselves such heavenly nurturance.

Once you’ve felt its protective influence, this cloak transforms you forever. Once you’ve felt its enfolding warmth of attentive care, you feel pure love and loved—unconditionally. With its all-pervasive quality of steadiness, we stand strong and focused on the truly valuable.

Through every problem, difficulty, danger, suffering, loss, and heartbreak, the Cape of Love is ever-present. As a shield of light around our body… Around our life… Around everything we touch and influence…

718px-Fra_Angelico_069

With each experience and confident step forward, we go with the assurance of safety that we are forever watched over and accompanied. The Cape allows us to grow what seems visibly larger to ward off those with less than good intentions. The Cape also permits a small stature to shroud our presence when we need to glide through any situation or crowd unnoticed. It helps us to remain centered on our spiritually chosen purpose and mission for this lifetime, to move with grace-filled ease according to Divine Order.

The Cape fosters the way to fully, finally transmute fear and thus walk with utter, unfailing trust. Every person’s attainment of the fearless state is a valiant triumph that enlightens all. To that degree, fear is drained of its overall power and false existence.

413px-Virgo_det_Josef_Moroder

As our celestial garment, the Cape of Love supports, sustains, and supplies our every need, when the necessity arises in the current moment. And so it does with every breath unto eternity…

This Cape of Illumination is the spiritual birthright and ever-available inheritance of all souls. But, you must make a conscious choice—or not—to allow its Omnipresent Light to enfold your being at all times. And when you do, it grants you a second life.

Beyond strong Passion’s guarded Gates,
There Peace awaits—there Peace awaits.

HEAVEN IS EARTH

Heaven and earth are the same place.
Earth is our mortal concept of heaven.
Heaven is our real awareness of the earth.
…heaven is the earth correctly understood.
Joel S. Goldsmith, Consciousness is Transition

star1

Throughout the ages, across many cultures, mystical teachings have revealed a secret of all secrets. This Truth, stated in various ways, embodies the seamless interface between “as above in Heaven; so below on earth.” A six-pointed star, with its equal triangles pointing downward and upward, is a perfect symbol for this all-inclusive Realm where here and there do not exist separately; instead, life interpenetrates. In this higher sense, we have no astrological stars or birth chart to transcend. Our true identity and inborn nature have been and are spiritual. Heaven’s domain is within and without—this instant.

When we get beyond and behind the human scene, when the curtain (the so-called “veil”) is drawn back, we glimpse the magnificence of the “divine play” happening. Each of us is an individual artist in this creative, perpetual show, what astrologer Isabelle Pagan described as “God fulfilling Himself not in one way alone, but in many.” This play is, in actuality, the spiritual flow of life that carries us along with perfect ease and grace when we put ourselves in harmony with it.

I look outward and only see Heaven—the One Life
appearing in the form of all life.

For a few moments, let your self rest, really rest and relax, as much as you can. Slowly begin to ponder about and become deeply immersed in the uni-dimension of One-ness. In this breathing space, agree to let all matters of non-importance disappear, reducing distractions, narrowing your focus, opening wide your internal receptors. Notice any superfluous thoughts and permit them to drift through your mind without any resistance, like a gentle cloud floating by. Feel comfortable in the quieting peace that envelops you.

It’s okay for your mind and body to be as still as possible in whatever measure of silence takes place. Our “essential being is inward, invisible, spiritual, and as such it derives its life and strength, from within, not from without,” as James Allen reminds us.

With your spiritual senses heightened, feel that Heaven has come to the forefront, as few thoughts now ripple the surface of your awakened consciousness. All personal and mental exertion has dissolved in this timelessness—the place of natural renewal. An effortless state has arisen—clear, pure, divine. In this reflective condition, a realization comes that there IS only One Ultimate Reality. Heaven IS all there is—“the unchanging and unchangeable beyond appearances.”

Seek only the presence of Heaven within.
Tapping into the Source.
An unlimited supply, for all purposes,
will stream in as daily provision.

800px-Sunrise_Bodrum_05459_05465

Again, take a few more tranquil moments to absorb your experience of Heaven into every cell of your being. You now know what this infinite ocean of serenity and harmony feels like! Acknowledge that you and everything else are already patterned from Divine Origins—thus fully complete and boundless, loved and sustained. As many times a day as you choose, allow Heaven to pervade your waking Reality. Thus, Earth IS Heaven.

Take this spiritual revelation and apply it to all aspects of your outer life. Given the Universal Truth that Heaven is Earth, what does this mean to you personally? How would it transform your life? In terms of global ramifications, how would the face of the earth change? What would it be like for humanity to live in a continuous state of unison and accord with one another and with all life? Would it even be imaginable or possible to experience lack, limitation, discontent, unhappiness, disease, strife, or war?

If we all looked out upon each other, the animals, the land, and resources of Earth through the eyes and senses of Spirit, our beautiful planet would be instantly Heaven-ized! The one reflects the other—perfectly!

When the teacher of God has reached the stage of real peace,
“here is Heaven’s state fully reflected. From here,
the way to Heaven is open and easy. In fact,
it is here. Who would ‘go’ anywhere, if peace of mind
is already complete? And who would seek to change
tranquility for something more desirable?
What could be more desirable than this?”

CHOOSE YOUR FORK OF THE PATH

800px-Sun_light_behind_the_clouds...

On and off for days, clouds and rain have been the weather menu. The Sun is up there, ceaselessly shining, but we haven’t seen much of His radiant face. We miss the lack of a solar-pick-me-up, but feel gratitude for the much-needed rain, which nourishes local life. For ancient peoples keenly attuned to the shifting cycles of light and dark, summer’s growth and winter’s quiescence, expansion and contraction, activity and rest, the Sun was the singular symbol for the vitality of physical life whereupon its beams fed and sustained the world. The people were also keenly aware of the mystical Sun behind the Sun—the spiritual emanation behind and within the outer planetary body.

This unseen, spiritual energy was considered the true Essence of Life. As an “unknown quality” or inexplicable ingredient, the rationally oriented or materialistic mind cannot account for this invisible attribute as a real or quantifiable entity. But, it is the spark of life, and when this animating force of life departs, the physical life ceases. In the Sun’s extreme ability to scorch, ravage, and incinerate, it leaves the withering fruit of death, whereas in its more moderate rays of warmth, vitality, and strength there is the generation of health, hope, optimism, and abundance.

Life is composed of incessant trade-offs of challenging consequences on the one hand with delightful results on the other, as well as all that lies along the continuum of alternatives. Life presents us with a multitude of self-determining choices. The paradox is that we must choose. In that we have no choice. Electing not to choose is a choice in and of itself—presenting yet a another choice that portends an ever-novel effect. In the Grecian Mystery School established by Pythagoras (one of the world’s most famous philosophers), a central teaching embodied the power of choice. The symbol of the zodiac sign of Aries closely resembles the famous Pythagorean dictum of the “Forking of the Ways.”1

aries2

From the central, undivided stem arises a fork with a path to the left and one to the right. All of us eventually reach this moment where the Path of Life divides, and we must choose from the depths of our consciousness. Over the course of a life, several confrontations with the Fork will present themselves, encounters that significantly shift the course of life one way or the other. Such a crossroad forces us to choose all that one Path offers, while foregoing the options of the fork not taken. And then, there are the many times when a lesser Fork is reached, and the outcomes are also less noticeable in their long-term, life-altering effects.

450px-Where_Kelling_Road_forks_off_to_the_northwest_-_geograph.org.uk_-_555341

On the symbolic level, the left-hand road signifies Earthly Wisdom and following the dictates of the ego-driven nature (in its extreme form) of folly, indulgence, dissipation, and eventual self-undoing, with unpleasant results. This left-hand path is the world of “phenomenal reality” and becoming entranced with what is outwardly visible and verifiable. In sheer contrast, the right-hand road was called Divine Wisdom and, if followed with steadfastness, dedication, focus, concentration, and integrity, this path would eventually lead to illumination or Cosmic Consciousness.

From the earliest peaks of civilization, the connotation of “right” and “left” has accrued great instructive power and is meaningfully scattered amidst the philosophies and scriptural texts throughout the world. The right orientation is linked to such things as the direction east, the masculine polarity of assertion, the diurnal half of the day, the right side of the body, the “conscious” mind, and further suggests qualities considered to be active, direct, strong, open, beneficial, familiar, righteous, and fixed on the externally driven, outer “self.”2

Conversely, the left orientation is symbolically associated with the direction west, the feminine polarity of receptivity, the nocturnal half of the day, the left side of the body, the “subconscious” mind, and to sharing our energies to create committed partnerships and unions. Moreover, the qualities associated with the left are said to diminish or weaken a strong sense of self through a desire to blend and compromise. The energies of the left are believed to indicate those qualities that are so-called “passive,” emotional, intuitional, unfamiliar, obscure, indirect, harmful, and even “sinister.”3

When the right and left halves are taken together as complements to one another and harmoniously balanced, they signify a unified totality—the wholeness each of us will finally attain when we make the conscious choice to travel the Path titled: “Be Full and Complete in Yourself Now.”
 

The Road Not Taken
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,

And sorry I could not travel both

And be one traveler, long I stood

And looked down one as far as I could

To where it bent in the undergrowth;



Then took the other, as just as fair

And having perhaps the better claim,

Because it was grassy and wanted wear;

Though as for that the passing there

Had worn them really about the same,



And both that morning equally lay

In leaves no step had trodden black.

Oh, I kept the first for another day!

Yet knowing how way leads on to way,

I doubted if I should ever come back.



I shall be telling this with a sigh

Somewhere ages and ages hence:

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I —

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference.
Robert Frost, from Mountain Interval, 1916

A CONSENTFUL LIFE

This is the day to release agi-ta-tion.
This is the day to embrace calma-tion.
This is the day to express jubi-la-tion.
Chris Maser, master of silliness

Collectively, we are in the midst of an unusual and amazing Cosmic pattern that signals the culmination of the old cycle and the invitation to walk new terrain with courage and vision. During the past three months of last year and for the first three months of this year, there has been—and will be—a succession of New Moons that occur at 0 degrees. The New Moons in February and March occur at 29+° (with the latter New Moon also a potent, total solar eclipse). These two lunations are also the start of new signs; and in March, the New Moon occurs on the Vernal Equinox, which ushers in a new season. This series of lunar gateways can indicate completions and the commencement of a fresh cycle of possibilities and growth when a new perspective, tone, or trend may emerge.

398px-Rain_tree_seeds_germinating

On March 16, the seventh and final square off of Uranus and Pluto underscores this major movement toward release, the embrace of life-shifting changes that have already occurred over the past few years, rebirth, and the transformation of our lives. Much space has already been cleared to sow anew and to watch with eager anticipation the germination of the tiny seeds of potential we now plant. It’s a providential time to intend what you intend with conscious awareness. This year—2015—carries the energy of #8, a vibration that helps to manifest our dreams, which again highlights the greater likelihood that what you clearly consent to and focus on can come to fruition.

If there is a fear of falling, the only safety
consists in deliberately jumping.
Carl Jung

A consentful life is all about trueness. It reveals who you really are without persona, pretense, pleasing or placating another, or parceling your self out in activities that are incongruent with your authentic core.

Here’s a useful exercise. When you have a few quiet moments to relax and contemplate, consider doing a scan of the actual makeup of your life and days. Examine honestly all the things, activities, pursuits, relationships, habits, and patterns that you are giving your conscious or unconscious consent to. The whole of all of these disclose what you give your assent, permission, approval, agreement, compliance, and acquiescence to. Centuries ago, Plato described it plainly in his unforgettable words, “your silence gives consent.”

See what really fits for who you are today. What no longer is a match? What part(s) of your life feels like hardbound duty without offering any genuine pleasure? What part(s) of your life do you welcome with enthusiasm, ease, and joy? Is there any thing that you’ve resisted letting go of that you know deep down has outlived its time and purpose in your life? Are you giving your precious time and energy to what is most meaningful, what you can’t imagine living without?

With the astrological impetus of beginning anew available in the upcoming months, the Universe is giving each of us a marvelous moment to pause briefly and realize fully what you are in actuality giving consent to in all the umpteen small and large aspects of your life.

Guided by honest self-assessment, what do you choose to consent to now? When you are freed from the weight of the past and that which you have outgrown, give your new life full focus and feel the song of jubilation in your heart! You have entered into a consentful life!

One can never consent to creep
when one feels an impulse to soar.
