Happy Valentine’s Day – the day the world stops to celebrate love. There is a frenzy to buy cards, gifts and any bauble or bangle there is for your favorite sweetie. I am a big fan of the day. I thought I would get lots of cards. Of course, Valentine’s Day is only one day. Celebrating love for one day and forgetting it the rest of the year is crazy? Do you forget about expressing love beyond this day? If anyone has an answer for me I would love to hear it. How many of you actually tell your dream girl/guy that you love them on other days? Do you say it more than once, every so often? Many have told me you don’t need to say it all the time because it is understood by your actions. Well, honey, I love to hear the words and you know what, why not give me what makes me feel good? Oh, I know, no one can make another happy, but it sure does boost one’s mood at times to hear those three words. If it makes your dream girl/guy’s day by hearing those three little words, what is the hesitation? By failing to express one’s feelings, doesn’t that build up some kind of volcano ready to explode? And then one day you no longer can keep it in and along comes a big bang. Tell that dream girl/guy that you love them if you do. Possessing someone is far from love. I see that too often around me. Are you one of those who gives love little credence and prefers to sacrifice that part of your life for approval, control and money with so little interest in intimate partnerships? How many do that? I think it is a rampant disease. Love is worth it. Have you ignored expressing love due to old patterns, habits, desires? I hear some of you saying you don’t really care about love. Well, no one said you had to care about it. Just express it, show it, and send it out to everyone. Too many are jaded and want the easy road. So, you were hurt a few times along the way. BIG DEAL! What’s the fear about? May get hurt again…obviously you didn’t understand why that person came in your life. Maybe it was bad timing. Maybe you needed to have a trigger to clear out the sludge of the past and see the truth about yourself. Love is. How sad to go through life without feeling LOVE. God is Love and Love is God.
There is no hesitation for me to express how I feel. That is being authentic. When I feel good I allow myself to share my joy. If I am having a down day for whatever reason, then do I share my feelings? Should I hide in a corner and wait for the mood to pass so others see only the positive in me? Hey, wonderful you, my need to express is just as important as your need to express. Of course, sometimes you and I both get carried away and say things that may be insensitive or hurtful. (I am not talking about abusive relationships here.) Should we break off the connection because that happened whether in friendship or love? Heck no. That’s taking it personally and nothing is worth taking personal. Get over it already. Yes, there are some who would say I haven’t gotten over some stuff. Oh, I have. Takes longer sometimes to clear out the debris and let go the old habits, patterns involved. And in right timing it is released. Nothing happens instantly unless you have mastered it. And if it does, believe me it comes back sooner than later to check you out and see if you really let go. Have you? Love has no controls. You cannot demand a partner or a friend to be the way you fantasize them to be. Wouldn’t that be a fun time? Hey, love, be in my life filled with sharing and laughter but if I choose to control you, I will. Love and control have no connection. Love is always about the other. The more you give love, the more you get back a hundredfold. And it will come back in ways that you least expect, sometimes so far different than what you intended that you may fail to recognize it at first. Remember it is for your highest good.
When I mentioned about repressing feelings and eventual explosiveness, I found something in Whitney Houston’s chart that indicated this. She was an angel sent from above to share her gift with the world. I had the pleasure of seeing her perform many years ago in the 90s. It was extraordinary. What a personable lady (very Leo) with lots of verve. Yet there was a dark side that reared its ugly head when she met and married Bobby Brown (my opinion). She began to feel insecure and not being able to live up to the adulation. Although she was magnetic and filled with charisma before her marriage, the darkness crept in through projection. The last few months she had Pluto transit squaring her Mars in Libra which gave her more ambition possible. Pluto pumps up the energy and since Mars is energy, it is over the top. With whom did she have a power struggle at this time? The other side of the coin is any suppressed anger still lingering within could bring some very shady characters to her life or danger. It is not what it seems. She ticked someone off recently, maybe even that day, because she did not agree with what was said and it was very emotional for her. She stuck to her guns about her feelings and someone did not like it. It had to do with a partnership. She was NOT going to kill herself. Why would she? Have you jumped on the media bashing bandwagon before all the facts are in? Maybe you need to think for yourself. Didn’t she fly to California for this celebration and the Grammy’s? More to this then anyone is saying. Who was in her room before she died? Mars was retro in her 7th house of partnerships conjunct her fated VERTEX. Wow, now I wonder if…..? And I bet the ranch it wasn’t done by her. It was building for weeks. Someone was not happy with her. If she wanted to kill herself, why fly out to the West Coast when she could have done it anywhere. I was appalled that they actually had that party when she was dead in another part of the hotel. Crass. Why not wait until the next day and then do a tribute party? Is this what America has become? I doubt that was a loving response on their part. Can you say zombies? We will always love you Whitney. RIP.
Sending you all blessings and lots of LOVE today and through the coming days. May your dreams become realities. Thank you so much for who you are and what you do. Until Again, Jan
Well, it’s 2012 and here we go again. Warmongers are set to blow the world up, the doomsday people are ready for the gloom that they want to manifest, and the Earth is crying her eyes out. We need to help the Earth heal and stop this craziness before it takes us away into oblivion that many are trying to bring about. There was a video I saw recently about that which said in order for the Earth to shift into a higher place of consciousness and heal it needs you and me to help it. What can we do? If you are reading this blog you probably feel the same way I do. Let’s awaken those who continue to sleep in their cozy existences. There are many who will choose to abandon the highest ways as they continue on their paths to doom. Yet, you and I are looking to rise up to higher consciousness and awaken others. How can we do this? Affirm that “I am willing to shift with my beloved Mother Earth.” It is recommended to say 3-4 times per day.
So much is going on around me and my favorite topic, the energy of LOVE and how it can help you get through the year. It is interesting how different I feel in this year of 2012. It is like something shifted immensely and here I am still going ahead, feeling better than I did just a few weeks ago. Did any of you feel some shifting within, or around you? This past weekend there was a Venus/Neptune aspect which was truly romantic. How many of you experienced a breakthrough lovewise? It was almost ethereal. And Venus now has come upon Chiron in Pisces in the last day or so which could bring about major relationship healing. On the other hand Chiron can manifest from a negative place and be truly insensitive because of its woundedness. Chiron is the wounded healer. So, did you come from the higher place or did you unconsciously hurt someone? It is a beautiful aspect if you stay on the higher ground and the deepest healing in a relationship can take place. Have any of you experienced this in the last day or so? Still is possible in the coming week. Look for it. Come from the deepest love and heal your relationship if needed.
Have you ever noticed how love motivates you? When you have a loving interaction and are involved with that special someone, don’t you feel uplifted? Inspired? I know that being in a loving relationship has always inspired me to go beyond the ordinary, silently telling me that I could conquer the world. Do women do this? Well, you know what I mean. The feelings that surface are joyful and can be magnificent if you are coming from that positive side of yourself. Have you noticed that love makes your mind clearer? When you truly love someone you stop feeling sorry for yourself. You love yourself even more unless, of course, you never did and that is what brings about any difficulties that may arise, lack of self-love. Love attracts love. So, if you have buried love so deeply because you fear loving, then do you really think you will find it manifesting in your life? Love is God.
If you find yourself acting out, do you think that it is a reflection of the partner’s feelings which may be coming from the unconscious? Does he/she recognize that? Or is it taken as a negative against them? Since we do tend to be mirrors for other,, that is possible. Sometimes there may be a past life issue, many in fact, which will trigger something within you or your partner and will start to be a burden on the relationship due to unsolved issues which haven’t been recognized. Or there may be a previous relationship which is now being played out with you because your partner didn’t resolve it with the other partner. Or you may be doing that also. Complex…not! Just layers of an onion which have to be peeled back to see what is truly happening and let go once it surfaces.
My suggestion to start the New Year in love is to forgive, have compassion and understanding, Love in your life manifests many things positive. It is a deep spring which flows from the Divine within and without. You are created to be love. Do you run from it because it scares you? Take love out of your life. What do you think will happen? That’s like taking the Divine from your life. With the Venus/Chiron aspect it is telling you to open to that healing within. If you do that then you can manifest it in your relationship. Let love energize you. Stop pushing it away and staying stuck in the muck of your own junk. There are really sweet things going on so please take advantage of any opportunities that may show up the end of the week Venus/Pluto can bring pleasure and boundless healing for those who are open to it. Keep that smile intact and as John Michael Montgomery says in a song,
“…If you’ve got love you can move a mountain
A little bit further down the line
You can do it all at once or one rock at a time
You can turn an ordinary picture into a priceless work of art
It’s what you can do if you’ve got love in your heart…”
What a fantastic time to be alive. Love will help you take a leap further than before. Love is all there is, dear ones. Let it be manifest in your life this year in a magnificent way. May you be blessed until again. The Full Moon shows up on the weekend. Pay attention and thanks for reading. Love, Jan
