25th July 2013: Messages from Venus

Descending to Evolve

Venus is now creating a Kite formation out of the Grand Trine in Water we’ve been so engrossed with in recent weeks. Actually, engrossed is a good word for a Grand Trine, especially a water one: its energies flow so readily we can easily become absorbed by them to the exclusion of all else.

Thus we may find ourselves full of emotion and unable to extricate ourselves from its grip, or lost in daydreams which serve only to disengage us from the reality with which we actually have to relate at some point! Which is why we should be very grateful to Venus for coming along in her gentle way and using her position in Virgo to bring us back down to earth for a bit.

This is not a rude awakening or a rap across the knuckles to rouse us. Instead Venus in Virgo reminds us that we are here in the physical for a reason and it’s not to find the quickest way out imaginable into some heightened ethereal state of being! In a slightly ironic way we could say it’s not ascension we’re experiencing these days, it’s descension: bringing cosmic energies into the material realm by conducting them through all levels of our energy field, including the physical.

We are embodying the new energies in the material plane precisely because we’re physical beings. Therefore, whatever we receive at an energetic level, be it wisdom, insight, healing or any kind of energy realignment or activation, our present task is to embody it, not escape the physical to enjoy it elsewhere.

So Venus grounds us now with the message that refining our energy does not mean rejecting what we essentially are – a physical being. Yes, we’re so much more than that of course, but the form we take in this life is physical. It is the level of manifestation which is undeniably true for every human being, like it or not. And it is a gift, because of all the spiritual forces in the universe, we’re the ones that get to influence the material world like no other. We get to interact with it every day, we get to BE it and live it. And as such we get to shape it, for good or ill. This is a profound responsibility and one that we should take extremely seriously.

In the coming days Venus will be reminding us of this task. She’ll be keeping us grounded when we could easily float off into rarefied imaginings of a better future in which all this physical stuff is over and done with. In a trine to Pluto she reminds us that our physicality is not a weakness – a sign of our spiritual immaturity – it is the very seat of our power, because once we can understand the laws of the physical world and use them for the greater good we will be capable of alchemy the likes of which we can barely imagine.

So today let’s welcome this message of Venus and honour our physicality, recognising it as the gift it truly is: the very thing which marks us out as pioneers of the new world in which the material realm will be as shot through with spirit as is every other, existing as a force for good in the evolution of this beautiful (and very physical) planet on which we live.

Love to everyone.

Thanks Sarah,,,I like.
Mastery at the physical level,,very challenging indeed. Especially with ice cream so readily available.
Being in the body completely with all of its distractions,but not of the body,(thats the trick),,detachment through impermanence,,everything changes,so why hold on..go fly a kite,,,haha

"In a slightly ironic way we could say it’s not ascension we’re experiencing these days, it’s descension: bringing cosmic energies into the material realm by conducting them through all levels of our energy field, including the physical." I agree! Thank you for this message, Sarah. So many times I do find myself daydreaming just wishing to hurry & return home, forgetting that home is inside of me all the time. It seems my job is to bring home into the world. Much easier said than done, but doable. Much love to you! :smitten:

Thank you Sarah; this resonates with me even more than the other messages of yours I have been reading lately.
I woke up today with intense burning up my spine and it was very scary. While I do have some back problems and this makes sense actually and I am making a doctors appointment, as I lay there trying to cope with this next onslaught of crazy physical symptoms that I have been experiencing the last few months, part of me strongly felt I was clearing deep levels of shame stuck in my body. I was regularly humiliated as a child....of course....
While hard to believe or rationalize, the notion that physicality mirrors the inner, I've come to believe there has to be something to it and things at my work have been happening this past week whereby I again feel humiliated and criticized in unfair terms, thus propelling me into this phase...I can see that now.
Thanks very much for the ongoing help you are providing as it is all much appreciated!!!

Alchemy that is what I love and anytime Venus is involved.

Yes Mik! that's exactly the trick! Well put: the very crux of the issue! :)

bfo, these words brought a lump to my throat! Thank you :smitten:

p.s. I've had some tech problems and can't access my post for 24th July as a result. I know you commented there but I can't see it. Sorry about that. Don't want you to think I'm ignoring you lol :)

Sarah Varcas 27th July 2013 2:46 am

Hello Toni :) I know it never ceases to amaze me how our emotional and mental stresses and pain express themselves so clearly and often almost metaphorically (!) through our bodies. I do hope that the issue with your back eases soon, and that with it comes deeper healing for you. Triggers in the present serve to show us where healing is needed, but that often doesn't make them any easier to deal with at the time, I know! sending you lots of love :smitten:

and as I just mentioned to bluefeatheryone, I know you commented on my 24th July post but I've had some tech problems and can't see your comment or respond. So it's not that I'm ignoring you!! :)

Ah, me too cyndy, and there's plenty potential for it at the moment. Enjoy! :)

Indeed Piroska! A unity indeed, and one to be embraced every day :smitten:

Sarah, you and those commenting have certainly hit the nail on the head for me: "our present task is to embody it, not escape the physical to enjoy it elsewhere." I have so enjoyed enjoying it elsewhere, and still do, but I get that bringing home here is the current emphasis.

Thank you, Sarah! How long will this Venus position be in effect? I am reading this three days after the post. Very grateful for this shift, and also for your posts.

Hello Lorelei! This particular configuration fades on 30th/31st July. But I feel it was a significant one and is one of those things that has anchored an energy that will remain here for us to draw upon :)

absolutely Kay! This is the theme for these times.. 'bringing it home in to the world', as bluefeatheryone put it so well. Then we don't have to go anywhere but here, in the present moment, to enjoy it together :smitten:
