This is part 2 of Venus Retrograde in Scorpio, I will try to be brief with this one but informative. The irony of this part 2 is Venus goes retrograde in Scorpio and goes direct in Libra.
As expressed, Scorpio's symbol is the scorpion which likes to unearth things and in Tarot divination, The Death card is the tarot symbology for Scorpio. Not literal death but transformations and evolution. Something has to end, in order for something new to start or begin. Venus and its cosmic energies is divine femininity that oversees love, relationships, harmony, finances and value in itself as what is valuable to you; and etc. We've covered some of this in part 1. Venus is everything that is feminine, she's like the softness of a flower petal.
With Scorpio, to me it's a sign that is masculine in its energies, it's also dominant, although Scorpio's element is water, because of its intensity, it feels more like fire. Scorpio's unearthing of things peels away at layers to the core. So basically, Venus Retrograde in Scorpio is Venus going through hell, walking through that fire and going through a tsunami and uncharted waters, in order to heal, transform and evolve. This is the unearthing of your spirit and soul, peeling away at all those layers to get to the authenticity of your spirit and soul. And live boldly in it.
Scorpio's trait also, deals with things that are taboo when it comes to secrets and all that is hidden, or even swept under the rug. Venus retrograding in Scorpio has to face all of that. Your dark side coming to light and seeing yourself in your own shadows. Venus retrograde in Scorpio is a good time to do shadow work and exercise your demons in training them to serve you.
This will help, guide and strengthen a person to face external demons. There are somethings some people don't want to face and would rather escape them through projections. And project the pain from those things unto others. It can be anything from sexual traumas, abuse of any sort relating to love and relationships: either from parents, families or those that were trusted and failed to love and protect these people in love and harmony; and etc. With this whole #MeToo movement, it's one thing to face the people who assaulted you and want justice but how about the demons that assault created, you got your justice and the person went to prison, but yet you're imprisoned with the pain, the shame, the demons that wreak havoc on your spirits and souls. The avoidance of healing because healing is so painful and messy. Rape is not just a physical assault that affects a person psychologically but it also affects the psyche, the heart and womb spiritually.
Yesterday, I saw a video of a woman speaking out about what's going on with Brett Kavanaugh and shared her experience of being raped and assaulted. This woman was filled with pain that I shed some tears for her. And I could feel and sense that she carries this pain with her and is imprisoned in it. And yearning to be free. When a woman gets raped, she carries the energy of that experience in her heart and womb and she carries the energy of her assaulter's energy in her heart and womb. This is an aspect of it that nobody talks about because it is taboo, the spiritual aspect of it that some people are afraid to face. And how utilizing the tools in spirituality helps a person cleanse, purify and redeem themselves from the energies of their assaulter and the energies of that traumatic experience. In also cleansing, purifying and redeeming their hearts and wombs.
I also, observe a lot of women speaking out against their assaults and I admire all of you for your strength and courage. One thing that baffles me is: nobody has open up the forum to talk about healing and self care to help these women move forward, to release the pain and traumas they carry and their energies, to break free from the prisons they've built from their traumatic experiences; and etc.
With this Venus Retrograde in Scorpio, now is the time to heal, to go through the fire to find yourself again and filter out what is not you. To restore and redeem yourselves because you deserve it! To restore your heart, your womb and all that is divine in your essence.
May all that's been broken, damaged and shamed in you, be restored in wholeness of the beautiful person you are.
