Dear Friends,
Keep your spiritual seat belt fastened; we’re experiencing another wave of solar flares, as well as a series of major astrological shifts. According to spaceweather.com: “A double CME (coronal mass ejection) hit Earth's magnetic field on June 16th. The impact strongly compressed Earth's magnetosphere, exposing geosynchronous satellites to solar wind plasma and sparking more than 24 hours of geomagnetic storms.” And from researcher Mitch Battros (www.EarthChangesMedia.com)“Solar Cycle 24 has begun - and it has been predicted by NASA, NOAA and ESA to be up to 50% stronger than its 'record breaking' predecessor Cycle 23 which produced the largest solar flare ever recorded... Just as the Sun's solar activity affects the Earth's magnetic field which has a dramatic affect on Earth's "weather" i.e. earthquakes, floods, volcanoes, hurricanes; so does this wave of electrical currents affect the human body's magnetic field.” We're receiving almost continuous cosmic upgrades, altering our physiology and psyche. Keep listening to your body and intuition. Eliminate as much stress in your life as you can. For a good article on ascension symptoms, see http://thesecrettruthabout.com/ascension/ascension-symptoms/ and watch a five minute video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=llB926tJaTk.
 
The next new moon forms on Tuesday, June 19 at 29º Gemini. New moons are optimal times to plant new seeds and set new intentions. They symbolize the commencement of a new cycle, and this one especially so. On May 20 we had a new moon at the very beginning of Gemini; on June 19 we have a new moon at the end of that sign. The first degree of any sign symbolizes an initiation and a new phase of development; the last degree represents a completion and transition to the next level. The archetype of Gemini seeks to sample as much of life as possible, exploring duality in order to ultimately realize the inseparability of all dichotomies. The Gemini Twins were originally depicted by a male and a female; Chinese and Hindu zodiacs still portray this sign with a woman and man, illustrating that all polarities—female/male, day/night, birth/death—are reconciled within the great wheel of life. As the esoteric ruler of Gemini, Venus represents the divine marriage, as does the alchemical Mercurius, an androgynous figure symbolizing the unification of opposites. These two new moons in Gemini, occurring before and after the rare Venus transit of the Sun on June 5, urge us to balance and integrate masculine and feminine, head and heart, matter and spirit. 
The new moon which forms on June 19 is further potentized by several other factors: its proximity to the solstice on June 20 and opposition to the Galactic Center at 27° Sagittarius; its formation just before the first of seven exact squares of Uranus and Pluto on June 24; Saturn’s station direct on June 25; Venus ending its retrograde phase on June 27; and its very close conjunction with the red giant star Betelgeuse at 29° Gemini.
Solstices have long been recognized by cultures around the world as important turning points, and are especially powerful times for prayer and ceremony. The word 'solstice' comes from the Latin words for sun and to stand still; twice a year, the Sun appears to rise and set at the same time and place for three days. After the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year, we experience "The Return of the Light", as the Sun begins to rise earlier and set later. Six months later, at the summer solstice, we experience the reverse, energetically shifting from yang to yin. Now inner growth becomes more necessary; the forms we have manifested since the winter solstice must be nourished and provided with supportive structures. The power of the feminine to bond with others, to feel what is needed, to nurture and protect, must come forward. 
Solstices function as energetic gateways, allowing a greater influx of stellar radiation as the axial tilt of the Earth comes to a gravitational standstill for three days. Because the summer and winter solstices are now also closely aligned with the Galactic Cross — the intersection of the plane of our Milky Way Galaxy with the ecliptic (the path of the Earth around the Sun) — each solstice (and equinox) provides a wider portal for the celestial downloads which are accelerating humanity’s evolution. This new moon peaks just 32 hours before the summer solstice in the Northern Hemisphere and the winter solstice in the Southern, focalizing transmissions from the massive Black Hole at the center of our galaxy, providing tremendous energetic support for releasing old patterns and beliefs. According to James Tyberonn, who channels Archangel Metatron (www.Earth-Keeper.com), the solstice “opens a window in causal space time as perceived from the Earth that enables an influx passage of enormous energy gates for a period of 144 hours; 72 hours prior and 72 hours after the Heliotropic halt seemingly occurs.” Receive the gifts of this time in meditation, prayer, and community. Visualize and affirm what you wish to bring into the world. Surround yourself with what inspires and nourishes you. Attune to the messages streaming from the galactic core and your higher self. We are preparing for a quantum leap. 
Our readiness to move forward increases as Saturn ends its five-month retrograde phase on June 25, and Venus ends its 43-day retrograde on June 27. We’ve been reviewing our values, commitments, and priorities; we are now ready to act on what we have learned and what has changed since Saturn turned retrograde on February 7 and Venus on May 15. On June 11, Jupiter began its once-every-12-years passage through Gemini; Jupiter remains within 12° of Venus until July 27, generating new connections, new truths, and new possibilities in communication, education, and cross-cultural exchange. Ceres, the dwarf planet symbolizing the Great Goddess, moves into Gemini on June 23, empowering new alliances and expressions of the feminine.
The Sun and Moon’s close conjunction with Betelgeuse and opposition to the Galactic Center funnels even more cosmic support for transformation. Betelgeuse is one of the largest and most luminous bodies in the sky, and is the brightest star in Orion, a constellation closely observed in the ancient world. The Great Pyramid at Giza, the pyramid complex of Teotihuacán in Mexico, ancient Hopi villages in the United States, and a Neolithic complex in North Yorkshire, England were all built to align with Orion. Betelgeuse’s name derives from the Arabic root for “the central one,” and according to Alice Bailey and Djwhal Khul: “Influential and potent forces are pouring in at this time from the great stars Betelgeuse and Sirius… they produce a stimulation of the heart center (Betelgeuse) and the head center (Sirius).” (Esoteric Psychology II, p. 721)
This new moon and solstice marks a threshold of major endings and beginnings. Breakdowns happen so that breakthroughs can occur. Relationships, institutions, and anything not aligned with the highest good for all concerned are being challenged to evolve or dissolve. We’re being given a cosmic test and a summons to stand in our truth and in our power. This is a time of great challenge and great opportunity. Each thought, word, and deed matters. Be as impeccable and compassionate as you can, for this new moon shows us: “The world is too dangerous for anything but truth, and too small for anything but love.” (William Sloane Coffin)
Namaste,
Stephanie Austin

A Must Read Matthew Message

Matthew Message, June 3
Light’s progress: evidence delayed in some areas, obvious in others; Earth on target to enter fourth density; media reporting; reforms and revelations will be rushed; telepathic communication precautions; resolution of differing beliefs; psychiatric patients; some changes early in the Golden Age; information references
1. With loving greetings from all souls at this station, this is Matthew.  Not only is our love for you boundless, so is our respect and admiration.  Your steadfastness in the light has remained strong even though nearly midway into this world-transformational year, nothing that you would consider conclusive evidence has occurred.  It is logical to expect that by now the thousands of spacecraft in your skies would be visible to all; crews would have landed in great numbers and been officially welcomed; and turmoil, warring and other violence would have decreased significantly.
2. We have been awaiting these developments along with you, and we have what you could call “bittersweet” feelings about the delay.  We know that millions still are winding up third density karma; divine grace is granting to millions more amended soul contracts to transition early with full karmic completion credit; and still more millions are evolving at an accelerated pace by sharing others’ karmic burdens. Yet it is sad for us, just as for you, that the topmost dark ones still have enough influence to cause widespread suffering.  
3. However, please do not think for a moment that Earth may not make it to the celestial window in time to enter fourth density, where darkness cannot exist.  Absolutely everything that needs to precede that momentous happening will!   However, instead of coming one by one for society’s easier assimilation and adjustment, profound revelations and changes will be rushing far more swiftly and in larger doses than the Golden Age master planners had anticipated.   
4. It is immensely heartening that most of you are seeing the positive perspective of situations that the media are reporting with bleak overtones, such as potential economic meltdown in the “Eurozone” and the global boomerang effect, upheaval in several governments creating national instability, and citizens protesting intolerable circumstances in one country after another. You see those and other tumultuous situations for what they are: essential steps toward initiating systems that are based in fairness and honesty and having leaders with moral and spiritual integrity. 
5. Because the dissemination of accurate information is crucial, another good indicator of the light’s progress is that mainstream media censorship clearly is on the decline.  For instance, even though the Vatican is one of the kingpins under the Illuminati umbrella, it now is public knowledge that investigation into the Vatican’s financial affairs is underway.  Ultimately this will lead to uncovering the cesspool of darkness in that tiny sovereign state, including that it is the international headquarters of satanic worship and a vast storehouse of stolen art treasures. 
6. More and more often news commentators and well-informed guests are condemning the lack of holding accountable the persons responsible for the world’s dire economic condition.  They are specifying how governments are failing to serve the best interests of their citizens, showing statistically why wars are both futile and senseless, and acknowledging that media have not met their responsibility to accurately inform the public. They are enumerating practical ways to recover economic stability and reform governments, the benefits of ending all wars, and how media can and should be educating the public.
7. No longer are the voices of those individuals and others, whom you call whistleblowers, confined only to the Internet — they’re going “mainstream.”  While they see themselves as simply speaking out honestly, frankly and pragmatically, the brilliance of their auras identifies them as spiritually evolved souls who came from advanced civilizations to be way-showers.   
8. Other indications of the light forces’ progress aren’t getting that kind of “listen-up!” attention.  Some news is distorted or incomplete because the reporters simply don’t know more than the information they are given.  Accounts of the nuclear reactors in Japan are ominous because it isn’t known that spacecraft crews are using their technology to reduce the toxic effects of radioactive emanations from the Fukushima facility and to prevent more damage there.  
9. Reporters don’t know that the crews are alleviating the most harmful effects of chemtrails, whose very existence still is not widely known, and health-harming pollution from a variety of other sources. As for all the talk of potential military action to curtail the spread of nuclear weaponry, it isn’t known that in honoring Earth’s desire that her residents stop killing each other, God has authorized the crews in spacecraft and on the ground to prevent the functioning of all nuclear weaponry. When the effects of what is called global warming are recounted, most often it is with grave concern because who among your scientists would give credence to the assurance that this is Mother Earth returning to her original moderate climate worldwide?  
10. Then there are the situations that are well known by the Illuminati who own media conglomerates and still have enough control to keep some facts quiet.  As one example, films and statistics show that recent earthquakes and storms have resulted in many fewer deaths and less property damage than previously.  What isn’t reported is why: The Illuminati’s technology that enables them to originate earthquakes and intensify storms is being “jammed” by our universal family so that Mother Nature can carefully release negativity until all of that force is gone — and soon it shall be.
11. Earth’s intention is exactly the opposite of the Illuminati’s, which is massive loss of life, devastating damage and the affected area’s economic ruin, all of which produce more negativity for Earth to deal with. With thanks to our universal family’s technology that can level out the effects of quakes and veer mammoth storms away from coastlines, the Illuminati never managed to achieve the vast extent of death and destruction they intended.   
12. You have the advantage of knowing what we and many other messengers in high stations have been transmitting to our respective receivers.  By far, you are in the minority.  Most of your world’s people still are rooted in third density’s limitations, which makes them especially vulnerable to fear, the ultimate producer of negativity. Whenever there is an opportunity to share your knowledge with persons who are fearful because they don’t know what you do, please enlighten them to the extent they are receptive. 
13. Your calm yet excited energy alone will go a long way to easing others’ fears, and it is realistic to anticipate that many will need your help in that respect as well as compassionate understanding. Thus far only the tip of the iceberg is obvious even to you, but during the next few months, happenings will be breathtaking in scope and speed.   
14. Along with your awareness of what is ahead in these waning days of third density, there is some confusion about how to prepare to physically ascend with Earth, who will go along with her, how to know if you are absorbing light, what density is, NESARA’s provisions, what will happen at the end of this year, and what life will be like in the Golden Age.
15. In previous messages we have covered these areas quite extensively.  It would be a disservice to long-time readers to repeat those explanations and a disservice to persons who are newly awakening to offer only a comment or two.  We understand that with time passing so quickly, it is difficult for you to manage all responsibilities, much less search through our messages to locate clarifying information. Therefore, I have asked my mother to do this and to note the dates of messages that include the most explanatory  coverage of those areas in question or where misconceptions abound — the dates will be inserted at the end of this message. 
16. Since the prevailing vibrations are conducive to the opening of telepathic connections, it is essential that you know how to communicate with only the sources you want to — dark entities are just as eager to connect with you as light beings are!  The precautions that apply to receivers of telepathically transmitted messages for distribution apply equally to you. 
17. Prior to initiating telepathic communication, ask for protection of the Christed light and demand that only light beings may connect with you.  Never try to communicate when you are in ill, fatigued, beset with worries about self or loved ones or financial straits or any other stressful condition or situation.  During those times, an effort to speak with a loved one is instead an invitation to base entities because your energy level is too low to reach souls in the light.  Humility and gratitude about having achieved telepathic communication carry high vibrations that reach sources in high vibratory levels, whereas the low vibrations of vanity and egotism automatically connect with dark entities.  Mother, thank you for searching for prior messages that may include this topic as well as the aforementioned issues.   
18. Many are wondering how resolution ever can come out of the many forms of religious and governing ideologies that are the foundations of prevailing belief systems.  People whose minds and hearts do not open to the truth about the sinister reason behind the formation of those conflicting convictions no longer will be on the planet to fight for their beliefs to reign supreme.  By the laws of physics that govern life in this universe, a closed mind cannot absorb the light that enables physical survival in the higher vibrations of fourth density.  Earth’s residents in her Golden Age will choose to live in peace and harmony with each other and with all of Nature. 
19. To the reader who is concerned about the destiny of psychiatric patients, who are independent souls with a wide range of conditions that affect each uniquely, all we can offer is what is likely generally and by no means is patient-specific. Those who have no brain damage, whose relatively sound mental abilities have been stultified by prescription drugs, may respond positively to the high vibrations and attain full rational functioning.  However, decisive factors in every case are soul contract provisions and the degree of light the body has absorbed; a person whose behavior isn’t harmful to another, but simply doesn’t conform to superficial societal expectations, can indeed absorb light. It is likely that the most gravely mentally ill patients, those labeled psychopaths, will die because their depraved urges and actions are bereft of light.  In any event, no one will be institutionalized or imprisoned after the Golden Age gets underway.
20. Because it offers an excellent forum for an explanation of great importance, we address a writer’s suggestion, offered some time ago: on Memorial Day in the United States, the truth be told to the world about who starts wars and why so that “never again will people have to fight and die ‘for freedom.’”  We honor the writer’s intense desire for peace in your world, but especially on that emotionally-charged day of commemoration to fallen soldiers, the truth about war could not have been told.     
21. Grieving families and friends of troops who have died don’t want to hear that their beloved persons did not die to protect their own nation from oppressors or to help another nation achieve freedom from tyranny.  Veterans whose severe wounds have caused physical pain and perhaps loss of limbs don’t want to hear who actually benefited from their service, and neither do those who are living with nightmares about their wartime experience want to hear that truth.  Troops still in combat zones or stationed in foreign countries in an occupation capacity don’t want to hear the real reason they are far away from home and families.
22. Beyond those myriad personal situations, beyond the civilian casualties in war zones, and beyond the financial burdens to the peoples whose nations are at war is the global emotional impact. It can be said that the condition coined post traumatic stress disorder is endemic to Earth. No one is immune to this battle energy that permeates your world, no one can escape the ravages that centuries of bloodshed have inured generation after generation to accept as humankind’s nature and lot in life. Yet, the fear of dying is just as pervasive, and that sets up a paradox that minds have to come to terms with.     
23. There is another vital factor — the soul’s composition is love energy.  The soul knows that it is not human nature to fight one another to the death because each is part of the Oneness of All.  The soul knows that life is eternal, that physical death is only a transition to the next lifetime in spirit, where it prepares for the next embodiment.  
24. The psyche’s continual subconscious juggling act with soul knowingness keeps the psyche in fragile condition. That is exactly the intention of the dark forces, whose ultimate goal is to capture souls.  They are manipulating their Earth puppets to be tenacious in perpetuating the war mentality and fear of death because the negativity produced can fracture psyches and prevent absorption of the light that connects the consciousness and the soul. The collective juggling has paralyzed the civilization into accepting what is force-fed as “patriotism” and all who fight and die are “heroes.”  The collective psyche would suffer a severe trauma if this truth about war came forth in one fell swoop.
25. When veterans join with others in peace rallies, worldwide meditations for peace, and internationally respected leaders negotiate peacefully with enough frequency, forcefulness and publicity, minds are stirred.  People who formerly accepted official reasons for going to war start questioning, pondering, and then “see the light” that enables psyches to more easily assimilate shocking information — day by day, this is occurring to persons around the world. 
26. However, there isn’t much time left for the masses to reach that level of consciousness about what is behind wars or religious dogmas or any other facet of life that is of dark origin and intent. The light that would let individuals avoid severe psychic trauma is the same light that would enable them to physically ascend with Earth.  Many will not be ready to accept that for millennia Earth’s population has been controlled by darkness through fear, deception and various forms of mind control. 
27. Please understand that these people are doing what is right for them. Every soul becomes enlightened at its own pace, and divine grace offers each as many opportunities as needed to accept the light within truth and spiritually evolve.  Be heartened by knowing that even though paces of evolvement differ, reunions of beloved souls take place in compatible energy planes.  
28. Now then, we shall briefly address other areas questioned by readers whose concerns are shared by the many people who have no idea where world events are leading.  If not initiated prior to Earth’s entry into fourth density at the end of this year, the following changes will occur in increments soon afterwards:
29. Nuclear power plants will be dismantled, no new facilities will be built, and   stored nuclear waste will be rendered harmless.  The process called fracking will cease and oil drilling equipment and rigs will be eliminated along with above ground power lines. 
30. Cell phones will become safe, and the use of surveillance cameras, communication systems and other monitoring devices will end.
31. Elements in foods that are harmful to bodies will be destroyed.  Medical procedures that are more damaging than beneficial to bodies and minds will stop, and so will sonar testing that is harming or killing marine life.
32. Laws and cultural customs that curtail human rights will be stricken and proposed regulations for such purposes will not be enacted.   
33. Educational systems will give everyone on the planet access to accurate information via computers and printed material.  Fair reallocation of the world’s resources will be done as expeditiously as possible. 
34. And the sun’s activity is all to your benefit! 
35. With confidence and joyousness, you will master any complexities during these last transitional steps into Earth’s Golden Age. Never are you alone — the love of countless light beings has been with you all along this universally unprecedented journey.

36. The following references are on Matthew’s Messages page on www.matthewbooks.com.  Preparing to physically ascend with Earth, who will go along/who won’t and why, how light is absorbed and signs that you are absorbing light often are interwoven, so references to all are listed under Ascension. Messages dated July 25, 2005 and earlier, which have important background information, are not in chronological order — this occurred as my webmaster was transferring messages to the new site she is developing.  It’s doubtful that I located every topic’s best clarifying coverage, but this combination of references will be helpful.

Full Moon and Venus Transit What You Should Know


Dear Readers,
Guest blogger is  Stephanie Austin M.A. is a professional astrologer specializing in life purpose, career, and relationship readings since 1986. She also teaches astrology and writes the New and Full Moon column for the Mountain Astrologer Magazine. Her background includes a bachelor's degree in Psychology, a master's in Consciousness Studies, and a lifelong involvement with meditation, Nature, and healing.

Important Dates:
June 4: Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse at 4:12 AM PDT at 14º14' Sagittarius-Gemini
Neptune Rx 3º09’ Pisces (D+ 0º22‘Pisces on November 11)
June 5-6:  Venus Transit 15º44’ Gemini

June 1, 2012
 
Dear Friends,
The next full moon is not just another full moon, and the next week is not just another week, as we have an extra potent lunar eclipse, an extremely rare Venus transit across the Sun, and Neptune turning retrograde, all occurring within less than 48 hours. This special download of Divine Love and Divine Intelligence offers a profound opportunity for healing the split between head and heart, masculine and feminine, matter and spirit. We are rewiring and reconnecting our analytical left brain with our intuitive right brain. We are moving from polarization to partnership, transcending centuries of gender imbalance and creating new archetypes and models of relationship. We are evolving from the love of power to the power of love.

Lunar eclipses are super charged full moons. During an eclipse, the close alignment of the Sun, Moon, and Earth intensifies shifts in the electromagnetic fields of the Earth and all its inhabitants, destabilizing existing matrices and facilitating the reconfiguration of consciousness. All full moons bring light to the dark, illuminating what’s been in the unconscious, and what we need to see to move forward in our lives. Nineteen years ago, on June 4, 1993, there was a lunar eclipse at 13°53’ Sagittarius–Gemini, very close to the degree of this eclipse. What was important to you back then? What is calling you now? What beliefs are holding you back? From birth onward, we are programmed by parents, teachers, culture, religion, government, and mass media to regard reality in very specific and limiting ways. We are taught to rely on our five senses, even though 96% of our universe is “dark matter,” imperceptible to our eyes and even to our most sophisticated scientific instruments. So, what is real? What is true? What do we think, and what do we know? This full moon/lunar eclipse symbolizes that those answers will come not from our head, but from our heart.

Greatly amplifying the potency of this eclipse is its alignment with the Great Attractor, located at 14º02’ Sagittarius. Our entire Milky Way galaxy, along with its celestial neighborhood of another 30+ galaxies (called the Local Group), each composed of billions of stars, are all gravitating towards an even greater source of stellar radiation called the Great Attractor. Gravity bends light; light encodes information, so any cosmic body aligning with these super powerful transmitting sources opens up a wormhole (a shortcut in time and space), enabling us to grasp things ordinarily hidden or beyond our field of awareness. 

Further widening the doors of perception, just hours after the peak of this lunar eclipse, Neptune takes its yearly turn retrograde, stationing at 3°09’ Pisces. It remains retrograde until November 10, turning direct at 0°22’ Pisces and returning to 3°09’ Pisces on March 2, 2013. Neptune enables us to feel our interconnectedness, as well as our infinite potential. The mythic god of ecstasy and madness reminds us that there are many worlds, many levels, many dimensions of consciousness. Neptune turns up the volume on our right brain, amplifying our intuition and our capacity to envision a new world. As with all archetypes, the more consciously we engage Neptune, the less likely we are to experience its energy in a disruptive or detrimental manner. Meditate, contemplate, be in nature, do art, play music, dance — whatever puts you in a quiet, receptive state, so you can grasp the special messages the Cosmos has for you. Viewing and meditating during an eclipse facilitates receiving upgrades and downloads. This will be a partial eclipse, visible across North and South America, the Pacific, eastern Asia, and Australia, beginning around 3 AM PDT. According to NASA: “At maximum eclipse, around 4:04 am PDT, 37% of the Moon's surface will be in the dark.” (http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2012/28may_strawberry/). 

Venus plays a prominent role in this eclipse, as it conjuncts the Sun in Gemini, closely squares Mars in Virgo, and most importantly, makes a rare Transit across the Sun on June 5–6. Venus Transits occur in pairs; the first was on June 8, 2004 (18º Gemini). The previous pair of Venus Transits occurred in 1874 and 1882; the next will be in 2117 and 2125. For a map and times where the Venus Transit will be visible, safe viewing techniques, and a live webcast, visit http://sunearthday.nasa.gov/2012/transit/index.php.

Venus was closely observed by the Mayans and known in the ancient world as the Great Goddesses Inanna, Ishtar, Hathor, and Aphrodite; she is the Western equivalent of the Hindu Shakti, the creative power of the feminine. As the esoteric or spiritual ruler of Gemini, Venus represents the divine marriage, the unification of opposites that leads to enlightened awareness. Mercury, the traditional ruler of Gemini, is also an alchemical figure; Hermes (its earlier, Greek version) is associated with kundalini, the primal force at the base of the spine that, when activated, produces unity consciousness. Venus’s transit across the Sun, highlighted by this eclipse, symbolizes a collective readiness for the re-emergence of the divine feminine; it supports women reclaiming their power and men reclaiming their feminine side. It accelerates the healing and opening of the heart for all choosing to ascend from duality and competition into unity and collaboration. 
After thousands of years of patriarchy and centuries of the Cartesian paradigm (“I think, therefore I am”), which propagate a mechanistic view of life and separated matter from spirit, modern science has ascertained that the heart has a powerful, innate intelligence that is in constant communication with the brain and every cell in the body -- neurologically (via nerve impulses), biochemically (via hormones and neurotransmitters), and biophysically (via pressure waves). On a more subtle but no less powerful level, it has been discovered that the heart generates an electromagnetic force field thousands of times stronger than that of the brain, emitting waveforms which can be detected up to ten feet away and potentially around the world. For more on this, read Renee A. Levi’s article, “The Sentient Heart: Messages for Life,” at: www.collectivewisdominitiative.org/papers/levi_sentient.htm.
Beauty opens the heart and feeds the soul. Venus represents what is most dear to us, and what is really worth our time, energy, and resources. Where Venus is located in our chart — by sign, house, and aspects — describes our preferences and requirements in relationship and lifestyle choices. Are we living in accordance with our values, or with those that have been instilled by our parents, culture, or the media? Have we bought into the Western belief that power equals money (for men) and beauty (for women)? Do we love ourselves? Can we trust that everything we need is already on its way? Can we allow ourselves to receive what has already been given?
Venus corresponds to the heart chakra, the subtle energy center which enables us to feel a sense of connection and belonging. When our hearts are open, we know that we are a beloved part of all Creation. We are able to see both the uniqueness and equality of all beings. We enjoy being in a body, and are grateful to be alive on this amazing planet at this extraordinary time. We are able to give and receive. We are able to appreciate and create beauty. We are compassionate and courageous. We see that we are creators, not victims, and that our inner guidance steers us in the direction which is right for us.
From Lena Steven’s June Forecast: “...be prepared for something to dissolve to make way for that expansion... The whole process this month is about reversing our imprint of how things actually work. Many of us have been taught that you have to have the vision first and then you set your intention and then you infuse that intention with creativity to make it happen. That puts the masculine first and the feminine second... Pure unorganized creativity, the void, chaos, inspiration and beauty have to come first... The need to control chaos is rooted in the fear of the feminine and thus breeds a fear of creativity, destruction and change... This space of holding creativity without form may be uncomfortable for many of you, but if you resist the urge to control it you will be rewarded with Vision coming in its own time...
