Can you feel the subtle shift in the air?
We’ve had some time to welcome the initial spark of spring (Aries) and to throw ourselves back in the game of life. With the Sun now in Taurus, we look to the rewards of that game and how those rewards bring forth a sense of security and pleasure in our own lives.
To better understand Taurus, we want to look to its “ruling planet” which is Venus.
The ruling planet is the one that holds the influence over the house, sign or aspect in our charts. It is the one that gives the blessing. It is up to us to contemplate, study and meditate to truly understand what that means for each one of us.
I’ve included the Planetary Mantra Meditation for Venus along with some questions to ask yourself in regards to what this month’s intention could possibly hold for you.
Once you have that clear intention take a seat somewhere quiet, light a candle, burn some incense and get into the vibration of Venus by listening to and chanting the following mantra.
Om Sri Shukraya Namaha
“Salutations to the presiding spirit of the planet Venus!”
“The Vedas teach that everything has consciousness within it. They also say that planets and stars are conscious in a way that is completely different from the way in which we humans are conscious.” – Healing Mantras
Developing a mantra practice in alignment with astrology can allow us to penetrate that consciousness and deeply shift the experience of our lives.
Don’t take my word for it. Give it a go for the next 30 days or so and see what happens in your own life. Enjoy the following points to help inspire your intention as you dive into the energy of Venus.
HOW AND WHAT DO YOU WANT TO ATTRACT RIGHT NOW?
WHAT WILL HOLD VALUE AFTER THE “CATCH”?
Venus makes us appear attractive — and we attract others. Socializing with and relating to others are important to this planet.
WHAT BRINGS YOU PLEASURE?
HOW DO YOU TAKE ACTION TO CREATE PLEASURE IN YOUR OWN LIFE?
Venus is all about pleasure, especially pleasure shared with someone else.
WHAT IS THE STATE OF YOUR PARTNERSHIPS?
Venus concerns itself with love, romance and harmony in our emotional attachments, marriages, friendships and other unions (like business partnerships).
HOW CAN YOU EXTEND YOUR ABUNDANCE TO OTHERS?
Venus is content to spread happiness and tenderness, all the while teaching us how to love and appreciate others and the things that we possess.
DIVE IN TODAY!!!
Remember, the true gem of practicing mantra meditation and astrology is that it breeds consciousness. It’s not just entertainment. It can be all too easy to fall into the habit of just entertaining ourselves, especially as this once hidden knowledge becomes more mainstream. Everyone will want to sell you their show, but who are the ones that are empowering you to take yourself even further than you ever imagined possible?
My wish is for you to expand your consciousness so that you can live a truly beautiful and awake life while watching the mystery as it unfolds before your very eyes.
May you be blessed on your way wherever you are,
