Time for another reality check...and you know it is going to hurt...at least just a little (and maybe more than a little). But this is the way, this has always been the way...This is how you grow, for the pain you encounter is the necessary catalyst that will help you to let go of the lesser sense of yourself, so that you might discover the greater within and around you too.
Venus rules your values, your appreciation of beauty and your love for one another. In the end, it all comes down to this one fundamental truth, it all comes down to your relationship to your own worthiness, to your own value of yourself...to your love of self.
Four times a year you need (and you will get) a reality check about your love of self which will equally and proportionally be reflected in the love you have with and for one another. You will look within to take the measure of yourself, then look around and see how well you have given and received of yourself, how well you have loved and are loved in your life.
This time Venus is in Aquarius, and she is seeking to extend your experience of the freedom that is found in and through your all your self-realizing authenticities. To be oneself, to be true to oneself completely, to have the freedom to be truly oneself without limitation...well, that is everything to you with Venus in Aquarius.
But Saturn has a poignant reminder for Venus now...you can only be as free as your connection, communion and devotion to yourself is deep and true...and this deeper relationship with yourself will be and must be equally met and measured in the union you have with one another too.
You cannot be "free" and be alone...for you are only free to the extent that you really understand one another, and that you believe in, support and encourage one another to be more truly "That". For in these deeper commitments to one another you free each other to become more of your selves than you ever could have been without experiencing such deep and abiding love.
Saturn may bring you to a painful moment here...for you need to look and see whether you have enough love for yourself and for one another too. You may feel a lack or loss of true connection or commitment, perhaps a rejection and/or some form of self-rejection...and this hurts...as it should.
But you need to experience this hurt and see the promise that is there in this pain, to see the pain as the echo or shadowed reflection of the understanding, commitment and love that is yet to be for you...and know that it will, someday...for it is your true nature.
You encounter this pain because you are not yet outwardly what you have within yourself. You would not be in pain if you did not feel this divide, between what is to be and what you have so far been able to become.
The way through, the way to accept and move beyond your pain, is to remember that within you, at the Shining-Burning Bright core of you, there is a spark of the Divine...and this same Luminous Presence is the very heart and soul and source of Love in you and throughout all of Creation too...
And someday you will know, and feel and live this Truth through and through...
And the illusion of loss and separation will be no more.
