Hello Cosmic Lovers!
I hope that you are all enjoying the cleansing of Libra season because her goddess of love ruler VENUS, will be working extra hard at making conflict and debate seem effortless so that you can resolve some issues!
Venus rules over the signs Taurus and Libra and her day of the week is Friday. Named after Frejya or Frigg who is the Norse Goddess of Love!
So I must remind you, Venus is not just a GODDESS OF LOVE. SHE IS ALSO A GODDESS OF FERTILITY AND WAR! That’s right, step away from the “Spa Lady” myth and reconsider all of the centuries of social conditioning that makes it easy for society to believe that beautiful women can’t be smart and tough.
In The Mayan Aztec Pantheon, Venus is more powerful than Mars and carries many of the same traits as Mars does in western astrology. I only bring it up to remind you that while she is a peaceful conflict negotiator, don’t let the smooth taste fool you. Venus will kick asses and write down names.
Like the goddess (Pallas) Athene, Venus is more about the application of strategy and wisdom instead of blunt force. Anyone that is close with someone that is a Taurus or Libra knows about that last line that you should never cross. If you cross that line, the #BSCC that defines Sagittarius bluntness will look like the munchkins singing and dancing in the Wizard of Oz.
So faithfully stick to the topics of your debate with vigor, while minding your manners, because Venus energy has a trademark on self-righteousness (Yeah that’s right, I said it!)
I cannot emphasize the use of powerful NON-Violent communication during Libra season. With Mercury dipping in and out of Scorpio and Libra through November, expect that some people’s words will be as pungent as a family bathroom after a BIG holiday dinner.
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO GIVE PEOPLE THE SPACE TO VENT!
That is, consider not focusing on the explosions in debate, but rather focus on what possibly caused it and how you might bring the other side some emotional or intellectual amnesty. Such gestures go a long way in allowing people to get things off of their chest without feeling like they are going to cause you irreparable harm.—>This is the main ingredient that keeps people in a healthy relationship founded upon open communication, not emotional coercion.
Yes, Venus is about getting out all that nasty stuff so that your space is clean enough to let the proverbial baby crawl on the floor. But in order to attain that level of social and political cleanliness it might appear that your significant other expects you to behave like you are supplying the next immaculate conception.
Give each other space to NOT BE PERFECT! No one is perfect, so hitting below the proverbial belt by bringing up mistakes older than a year, just might send your relationship into its own cycle of “retrograde.”
Remember that the fire trine is activated and the Grand Cardinal cross returns just before this season ends so we need to be allies that attack our challenges and NOT EACH OTHER!
—-I Know—–Easier said than done!—-
Focus on efforts and intention over unrealistic and idealist expectations and you will find that we are all standing upon common ground. Neptune will help us clean up this mess with a romantic boost in Mid-November.
Last but not least, speak from the heart with the attention to resolve instead of just unleash and “the other,” will hear/feel that more clearly than being articulate and clear in your cadence.
Remember to consider that Libra rules the 7th house so everything involving marriage, partnerships and alliances involving others is in a state of healing.
Tips on Non-Violent Communication:
(1) Spend some time each day quietly reflecting on how we would like to relate to ourselves and others.
(2) Remember that all human beings have the same needs.
(3) Check our intention to see if we are as interested in others getting their needs met as our own.
(4) When asking someone to do something, check first to see if we are making a request or a demand.
(5) Instead of saying what we DON’T want someone to do, say what we DO want the person to do.
(6) Instead of saying what we want someone to BE, say what action we’d like the person to take that we hope will help the person be that way.
(7) Before agreeing or disagreeing with anyone’s opinions, try to tune in to what the person is feeling and needing.
(8) Instead of saying “No,” say what need of ours prevents us from saying “Yes.”
(9) If we are feeling upset, think about what need of ours is not being met, and what we could do to meet it, instead of thinking about what’s wrong with others or ourselves.
(10) Instead of praising someone who did something we like, express our gratitude by telling the person what need of ours that action met.
Have a great day star siblings!
