12th May 2013: Moon Conjunct Jupiter in Gemini

Love Is Letting Go

Today Jupiter and the Moon join hands in Gemini, expanding our horizons and providing us with a much needed confidence boost. The confidence of Gemini is not about power and durability, but about the ability to shake things off and move on when necessary. It’s the confidence to know when something no longer requires our attention and has completed its purpose for us, giving us the ability to let go without regret.

Against the backdrop of Venus, Saturn and Neptune introducing some powerful lessons about the nature of love over the coming few days, this Moon/Jupiter message is an interesting one. It can be easy to overlook the aspect of love which tells us to ‘let go and let god’. When our emotions and desires are aroused, letting go is just about the last thing we can do! And of course, that’s fine and understandable. Like anything that hooks us at an emotional level, its power over us can be immense. But love has many faces and letting go is one of them.

We may express love for another by allowing them space and time to go through their own process of development and insight. We may express love for ourselves by stepping out of a painful dynamic and deciding that a boundary is needed to enable us to move on. We may express love by refusing to provide what someone else needs to encourage them to find it within themselves and be forever blessed with more self-reliance and inner strength.

The complexities of love run wide and deep, and we are all on a journey to discover more and more about them. It can be a rocky and painful journey, and a blissful and inspiring one. It can reveal to us aspects of ourselves and each other that we would rather not face, just as it can also reveal the pure heart at the centre of each of us that forever seeks expression. Love is not what we thought it was, and yet it is, and more. It is the biggest mystery, the deepest and most profound truth, and no matter what we say about it, eventually only silence can allow it to speak its truths in full.

So today we are encouraged to consider the face of love that expresses itself through letting-go and releasing, recognising that all things have their time and place and when that time and place has passed they must be allowed to return from whence they came, into the Universal Heart within which we all exist and have our being.

Have a blessed Sunday everyone.

Sarah, TY for this beautiful message. I truly admire how you deliver these messages through such a lens of love, compassion & peace. I do hope that my dark nights have allowed me to one day do the same; however, I have a difficult time seeing it meeting the same extent to which you're able to do so.
This message allows me to become emotional. TY. I lost a very dear friend to me because I couldn't let go when she asked me to. I didn't think I had the strength. I was dependent on others. Others were dependent on me. It was a painful experience in many ways. Now that I remember the words, "You cannot lose yourself. People will always come & go from your life...you are the constant," it has changed me for the better. If I remain single for the remainder of my life, I know now that I could do that successfully. I didn't beforehand. I neither trusted myself nor loved myself enough to believe it. I loved her, I truly did. She never felt the same, so I'm moving on alone. I doubt anyone will ever make me feel alive like that, but I will be open to the Universe. TY for listening. :smitten:

Ah, Betsy... sending a big hug through cyber-space to you. :smitten: In my (humble)experience the biggest losses in life seem to be the ones that eventually lead us deeper into the heart of the universe itself, where we are never alone. But the journey there can be very painful I know, and it can often feel like two steps forward and then several back again! Being open to the Universe is eventually the only way to go... Love to you xx
