Isn't it lovely that after all the recent eclipses and shadow work we've been doing, we are now deep in a Venus Retrograde... which is basically a love-based revision of everything within our lives? First we see the shadow, then we learn to love it.
I'm finding it to be a particularly heart-opening experience.
After you drop the masks, deal with the anger, feel the sadness underneath, and begin to forgive... you can finally tap into the energy of Unconditional Love... Ultimate compassion... that which we all need.
This retrograde is making us understand what it means to love and appreciate everyone's light in the deepest way. When I look at people today, with this latest shift in energy, I am seeing them through loving light, despite their often cloudy energy. People need to be seen in this light of love. Even if they are nasty and complaining. Particularly if they are nasty and complaining.
It is entirely possible to have the deepest compassion for those who have wronged us. This is the sign of true healing. This is what the world needs. This is the only way to move forward... and the first step towards Unconditional Love. This is the message of Venus.
Thanks for the heart @jamie452
