Venus Retrograde 2017 is a transit that you will likely remember for a long time. It’s been a rough few weeks of taking a serious look at our past relationships. Venus official moves forward tomorrow but today she is stopped in the sky, conjunct Chiron, trine Vesta and square Saturn, who is also at a standstill. This is making the energy intense to say the very least. As Venus/Chiron squares Saturn, you are seeing the soul wounds you have been carrying through many incarnations. They are coming to the surface and being broken down.
This energy is empowering sacred union with your twin flame and yet, the energy can feel like anything BUT that. Are you feeling a complete disconnection from your twin and your union? Perhaps a lack of emotions? Are you being pushed to focus on yourself rather than them?
This has a reason behind it. One of the gifts of sacred union is the enhancement of creative abilities. In sacred union, the masculine and feminine reach balance and this allows manifestation, or creative abilities, to become much more rapid. With this increased ability also comes increased responsibility. If you are being given the ability to create your reality, what is it you are creating? Vesta is assisting all of you with this part as she brings the energy of purification, including purification of our motives, as well as dedication to mission.
Sacred union is going to manifest from within you. If you are still giving your power away to external forces you aren’t ready for this phase of union. The disconnection will show you that you CAN move forward alone. Giving your power away to your twin is still giving your power away. That has ended.
Many twins are in the process of moving up into another aspect of themselves or embodying more of their Christ-consciousness. Very fitting considering Christians are celebrating the death and resurrection of Christ around the world at this time. Again, you need to be in this higher-consciousness to use your creative energy responsibly.
Going through the process of this embodiment is like having your foundation collapse. Things are being rearranged. It’s chaotic energy. It’s a complete letting go of everything so that the new can be formed. To me, it feels like being in a void. You may have experienced this letting go in many areas of your life over this retrograde period; emotionally, physically, mentally. You are opening yourself to the new timelines that are being birthed with Venus, Saturn and Chiron.
I am being shown that the solar plexus chakra is key right now. Twin flames are experiencing a rebalancing of this chakra, which is our power-center. Some may have experienced physical symptoms as this chakra was activated at some point during the retrograde and likely it was in conjunction with your twin’s energy, meaning your twin was feeling it, too.
When the solar plexus is blocked, we embody some of the negative traits associated with the feminine energy. We have low self-esteem. We can become over-emotional. There is difficulty setting boundaries and suffering from co-dependency. Passivity can be an issue. We play the victim or become martyrs. We feel depressed and alone.
When the solar plexus is overactive, there is a tendency to associate with negative traits of the divine masculine. There is a tendency to control or to dominate others. To be very judgmental. We become very rigid. Nothing is ever good enough. We feel like we know it all. When the solar plexus is blocked, we are too open but when it is overactive, we are not open enough.
When your solar plexus is healthy, you are self-confident, empowered and responsible. You are in control of your emotions and thoughts, which allows your inner guidance to come through. You love yourself while being able to honor others. When challenges come up, you are able to meet them. You know when to take action. The opinions of others do not control you. Goodbye co-dependency! You can remain calm in the face of adversity. People are drawn to you because you are open and understanding without being a pushover.
You can see how being balanced in the solar plexus is an important step in balancing your energy and coming into sacred union. That is why this is happening now. It’s leading you to that place of responsibility that is necessary for your manifestation.
This is allowing twin flames to feel comfortable in that place of complete letting go and opening to new opportunities. You feel safe enough to allow your new self to be born. When the time comes for action, you will be ready and able to move forward. If things begin to manifest that you don’t understand, and this is going to happen, you won’t become a slave to your emotions.
Trust in this process now, beloveds. Take this time for yourself. It will keep you balanced through your transformation. Whatever is happening, your soul is in charge. New energy is here for the taking. Your creative powers have never been stronger. The new cannot come in if there is no room for it so do not hold on to the old that wants to fall away. Like the trapeze artist, you must let go and spring towards the next bar, allowing yourself to be in that gap for a split second.
Saturn is still on the Sabian symbol, “A splendidly built bridge, a heritage of unknown ages, still spans the beautiful and wildly primitive stream.” That primitive stream represents the chaotic creative force. The bridge is joining the old and the new. You are in the center of that bridge right now. Technically, you are in neither place. Which way will you go? Back towards the old ways? Or will you step forward into the new? That which has never been before?
And do you feel safe enough within yourself now to walk that bridge alone? You must choose for yourself and your twin must choose for themselves. The choice will be made individually yet always knowing you are one. You will not fully know the others choice until you begin to move forward in your own decision. You are balanced. You are strong. Step towards your destiny.
